Today’s recipe was Chickpea Fritters. Ron was feeling more chipper today and helped me mix these up.
I found the recipe via No Meat Athlete, one our my favorite websites. There aren’t many ingredients and all you do is mix them all up. It said to refrigerate for 2 hours and then you could cut them into strips before frying. We did put them in the fridge but they never really firmed up at all. I ended up just forming them into small patties.
Next you heat the oil in a skillet and fry them. The recipe recommended EVOO but we used coconut oil.
This is what they looked like in the frying pan.
And now altogether with some mixed veggies.
Ron loved his but this is one that I wasn’t crazy about. They reminded me of potato pancakes. What I can say for them is that they were very filling. We ate not long after church today and I was satisfied the entire day. It was close to 8:00pm before I was even thinking about eating again.
I’ve had a lot of fun showcasing these delicious vegan recipes and am ready to announce that as of 8-18-12, I am vegan. I became a vegetarian on 8-18-10 but then veered away from it after 10 months. After realizing that I felt the best in my life during those 10 months of vegetarianism, I converted back. Now, I’m ready to take the next step. I don’t think I’ll miss milk and eggs at all. Cheese maybe. However, with websites such as Oh She Glows and Peas and Thank You, I think I’ll do just fine.
On the exercise front this week, I’ve got the super easy 5-5-6 in the run department. What I’m really going to try to focus on are my non-running days. Hoping to incorporate some kettlebells and some push-ups and sit-ups.
Have an awesome week!
I’ll say goodnight with my favorite quote from the weekend:
