Vegetarian Cutlets

Calling ,,cutlets” vegetarian or vegan may sound funny however, they look like the mince cutlets and I wanted to give you an option for no meat traditional type of dish where we used to put potatoes, vegetables and meat together on the same plate.

Combining meat with starches and vegetables altogether is not a very good choice for our digestive system. Animal origin fats and proteins metabolize in our stomach through different stomach enzyms than simple carbohydrates, especially starches.

If you keep the origin of foods familiar, your stomach will get it much easier to metabolize it and to get the nutrients from. You will not experience reflux, stomach ache or bloating. You will not get sleepy and tired after the meal. Try it and see how do you feel?

These cutlets are a great addition to standard meal with starches. You can also use it as a burger filling or an ingredient to your sandwich or as a side to your salad.

How to make it?

Get ready:

  • 1 can of chickpeas ( or soak a glass of raw chickpeas overnight and cook it in salted water)
  • 1 large onion , finely chopped
  • 2 medium carrots grated
  • 1 glass of wheat bran ( use buckwheat or millet groats flakes to keep it gluten free)
  • 1 egg ( skip it to keep it vegan and use 2 tbs of linseed powder)
  • 1 teaspoon Himalayan Salt
  • 1 teaspoon of Cayenne Pepper
  • Coconut Oil

Combine all ingredients in a food processor or use a hand blender and blend until smooth. If you need more salt or want to have it spicier add more spices.

Form burgers in your hands and cover with wheat bran the way you do with standard cutlets. Preheat the pan with coconut oil and fry on high heat for 2-3 minutes on each side. You can make more to store in the fridge for the next day.

Enjoy
