Chickpea-Zucchini Patties

kichererbsenbratlinge (5)

Since I became vegan I have been enjoying eating burgers a lot more than I did before – Which might seem a bit ironic for some people, but personally I just prefer the taste of plant-based burgers. There are so many different kinds of veggie patties one can create and these chickpea-zucchini patties are the ones I have been making quite often lately. Besides eating them on burgers I love to have them with some fried or baked veggies, hummus and a squeeze of lemon juice as you can see in the picture below.

 

Zutaten/Ingredients (approx. 4 Burger Patties)

1 Tasse Kichererbsen (aus der Dose)
½ Tasse Linsen (aus der Dose)
¼ Zucchini
1 Knoblauchzehe
Etwas Öl
Etwas Mehl (z.B. Kichererbsenmehl

Gewürze:
Gemüsebrühe, Salz, Pfeffer, Paprikapulver

1 cup of canned Chickpeas
½ cup of canned Lentils
¼ of a Zucchini
1 Garlic Clove
Some Oil
Some Flour (e.g. Chickpea Flour)

Seasonings:
Vegetable Stock, Salt, Pepper, Paprika

kichererbsenbratlinge (2)

Zubereitung
Wasche die Kichererbsen, Linsen und Zucchini gründlich. Hacke anschließend die Zucchini und die geschälte Knoblauchzehe fein. Gebe nun zuerst die Flüssigkeit, dann Hülsenfrüchte und Gemüse in einen Mixer und mixe das Ganze grob. Fange am besten erst mit weniger Öl an und gebe mehr hinzu wenn nötig – die Bratlinge sollten am Ende lieber eine etwas festere Konsistenz haben. Ergänze nun das Mehl und die Gewürze und vermische alle Zutaten gut miteinander. Forme daraus zum Schluss die Bratlinge und bereite diese mit etwas Öl in der Pfanne zu. Serviere die Bratlinge nun nach Belieben als Beilage oder auf einem Burger. Guten Appetit! 🙂


 

Method
Start of by rinsing the chickpeas, lentils and zucchini. Peel the garlic clove and chop it, as well as the zucchini, into small pieces. Now add the liquid, legumes and vegetables to your food processor and blend the mixture roughly. I would recommend to start with less oil and add some more if needed, in order to get a firm consistency. Once you are done with this step add the flour and seasonings. Stir until well-combined. Finally form the mixture into patties and fry them with oil. Serve the patties as a side dish or on a burger. Enjoy hot! 🙂

This meal is so easy but yet so delicious. Whenever I have some leftovers I love to experiment with different combinations of baked food, this is how it turned out last time. I enjoyed it as a light meal all by myself, but you could also add some extra carbs like rice or couscous to make it more filling. Ooooor serve it as a starter for some more people.

Ahhh I feel like it’s been quite a while since I’ve posted a smoothie recipe!

Chia French Toast / Arme Ritter

IMG_3564.JPG

I get asked by many people how to replace eggs in vegan meals like this one. There are so many ways e.g. mashed bananas, apple purée, oil, … aaaaaand chia seeds! It absolutely depends on the recipe what works best as a replacement. For french toast chia seeds are wonderful since they don’t have that much of a special taste plus the final consistency of the bread is just as good as if you were using eggs. 

Zutaten/Ingredients (Serves 1)

1 EL Chiasamen
½ Tasse Reismilch
Zimt
Vanille
Ahornsirup
Toast

Meine Toppings:
Himbeeren
Schokosauce
Ahornsirup
Mandeln, Leinsamen, Hanfsamen
Cashew Mus
gepuffter Amaranth

1 tbsp Chia Seeds
½ cup of Rice Milk
Cinnamon
Vanilla
Maple Syrup
Toast 

My Toppings:
Raspberries
Chocolate Sauce
Maple Syrup
Almonds, Flaxseeds, Hempseeds
Cashew Butter
Popped Amaranth

IMG_3565.JPG

Zubereitung
Vermische die Chiasamen mit der Milch und lasse das für 10 Minuten aufquellen. Püriere anschließend die Flüssigkeit und gebe noch etwas Zimt, Vanille und Ahornsirup nach Belieben hinzu.
Gieße die Mischung in einen Teller und lege den Toast kurz darin ein.
Zum Schluss muss der Toast dann noch angebraten und nach Geschmack mit Obst, Nüssen, etc. verfeinert werden.


Method
Mix your milk with your chia seeds and leave it to set for 10 minutes. Add vanilla, cinnamon and maple syrup before you blend it.
Dunk each side of toast into the liquid until saturated. Finally fry the bread and serve it with some fruits, nuts, etc.

Enjoy! x

Light Summer Breakfast

Esay_melon

I love simple things. Like simple food, simple pictures, simple days and so on… Of course a really special and complex meal does taste extremely good and it’s fun to create it. Nevertheless most of the time I crave the easy meals and most often I enjoy them even more. Just take a look at the picture, it’s really that simple but still super delicious haha. Probably the little things in life are the ones that make every day a little better, a little happier – especially if you share them with other people ♥ So keep your eyes open and try not to focus on the “more special” things only.

 

What you need:

 1/2 Wassermelone
1 Tasse Tee
& Liebe
 1/2 Watermelon
1 cup of Tea
& Love

 

Much love,
