Chickpea Cutlet Love


That may not look particularly appetizing, but it represents a breakthrough in food at our house. Safiya has never eaten a sandwich before. She loved Veganomicon's chickpea cutlets so much that not only did she eat this schnitzel-ish food item, but she suggested the bun and then insisted I take pictures of her eating this crazy food.

Having never worked with vital wheat gluten before, gotta say, it's easy-peasy. The recipe (you can find it and a slightly ribald review at Yeah, That "Vegan" Shit) calls for liquid smoke (eeeew), which does not live at our house, so I omitted the chili flakes and subbed just a tiiiiny bit of this phenomenal stuff:


I'm on the chickpea cutlet bandwagon, and it is a yummy ride :-)

I love hanging on the wall of a painting, xu beihong art master painting of "running horse". This is a horse full of heroic bearing horse. You see it perks, horsehead rotary, two eyes sparkle; Mane and tail with rushing wind hike up, two front feet cross, hooves on the right, the left shoe impending, curled up the hind foot forward. A look at the tall trunk, sturdy body, pandora charms over, just know that it was a horse ", a line, nocturnal eight hundred "the splendid steed.
