Maple-Buffalo Chickpea Nuggets

Maple-Buffalo Chickpea Nuggets w. Brussels Sprouts

I hate the word nuggets but still can’t think of anything better to call these and I’m not to fond of wingz either. I got the lovely idea from this post by the fabulous Celine of Have Cake, Will Travel. I’m a huge fan of the Chickpea Cutlets in Veganomicon and like to use them in a variety of ways but have never thought to use them in this way. I usually just use seitan or tofu when I make buffalo-style anything but the chickpea cutlets were perfect for it. Just perfect. They are so easy to make as well.

I followed Celine’s directions only up to the point of of baking them in the oven. I wanted to then bread and fry them like I usually do and like she did put I was all out of panko breadcrumbs and I don’t like to really use regular bread crumbs. So I baked them and then covered them in my Maple-Buffalo Sauce. I served them up with some sauteed Brussels Sprouts and then my sister and I dug in and our taste buds and bellies were completely satisfied.

I will definitely be bringing these to a potluck and serving them at my next party/gathering of sorts.

    That’s the twist I’ve been looking for on the cutlets! I’m not the hugest fan of them (maybe it’s the gluten?), but covered in a tasty sauce, what’s not to love??

    Susan~~I don’t have a recipe for the Maple-Buffalo sauce yet. All it is is Maple Syrup, Earth Balance and Hot Sauce. I will be making these again in the next week or so and once I have all of the measurements to my liking I will be posting them.
