מהפך טבעוני קיצוני: ורגרס חומוס עם מהדורת רוטב צזיקי

לפני כמה שנים, אני קורא בעיון את הציטוטים ואמרות טבעונים לחלוק עם אנשים בלוח דיונים. יום אחד אני מחפש משהו קליל (יש כמה בדיחות ממש מצחיקות וגן וחידות) ואני מצאתי את השיר הזה. מייד אהבתי אותו והרמתי את מבטו של המחבר. That’s how I learned about Ginny Kisch Messina.

Ginny Kisch Messina, MPH, RD, lovingly known as “טבעוני הדיאטנית,” is a dietician and public health nutritionist.

She has co-authored a textbook on vegetarian nutrition as well as the American Dietetic Association’s Position on Vegetarian Diets, and helped develop a food guide for vegetarians and vegans.

Amongst her long list of Vegan and animal welfare activism accomplishments, Ginny is the National Vegan Examiner for the examiner.com site and is the author of the well-known blog, The Vegan R.D.: Thoughts on Being Vegan: a Dietician’s Perspective. In her blog, Ginny focuses on the science of nutrition and it’s the place to go when you want honest answers to your Vegan nutrition questions. Ginny examines what’s beneficial about the Vegan diet but she just as objectively explores the unanswered questions, never pitching a Vegan diet as a magic cure-all or weight loss plan.

I’ve been a big fan of Ginny’s for awhile now – for her honest, scientific teachings, her smart and accessible writings, her passionate and compassionate activism and the fact that she’s a really sweet person. But it all started with Ginny’s poem which seemed the perfect intro to this Extreme Vegan Makeover recipe.

A Vegan’s Ode To The Chickpea

If you’ve been to a vegan pot luck
Where everyone brings a dish
You’ve tasted six kinds of hummus
Thank goodness it’s so delish.
It’s tasty because it has chickpeas
A very delectable bean
But hummus is just for starters
‘Cuz chickpeas are worldly cuisine.

In Milan they call them ceci,
They eat them with rigatoni
They’re classic Italian food
As famous as macaroni.
When you pair them up with pasta
You get a protein that’s complete.
אופס, what the heck am I saying?
That theory has met with defeat!

If you’re traveling down Mexico way
And the foods are all topped with cheese
Say “quiero garbanzos por favor”
(That means “I want some chickpeas, please.”)
In India they’re made into flour
For fritters and tasty flat bread
But if you prefer plain old chickpeas
You can have them in curry instead.

Chickpeas have great healthy nutrients
Like potassium and calcium, לפחות
They’re an excellent source of B12
(Well—if you eat them with nutritional yeast)
You may think that you love chickpeas
You’re convinced you’re their biggest fan
But I’ve got you beat by a mile
I eat them right outta the can.

I’m happy that I’m a vegan
I do it for the animals’ sake
I couldn’t be mean to a chicken
I like cows too much to eat steak
כך, you can have your eggs and pork chops
You can have your heart disease
I’m choosing ethical eating
It’s easy—‘cuz I’ve got chickpeas.

Isn’t that adorable? אישית, I think Ginny should write an entire volume of poetry with odes to brussel sprouts, קינואה, kale and more.

I love chickpeas too. Even before I went (99%) ללא גלוטן, I started using chickpea flour instead of whole-wheat pastry flour in all of my cooking (white flour is evil!). It’s light and it works in every recipe I’ve tried so far, including baking.

Chickpeas make delicious fries like the ones at Peacefood קפה and here in this recipe for my incredibly delicious Chickpea Burgers. I served them with a homemade Tzatziki Sauce and my Baked Polenta Fries. Now that’s a meal worth writing a sonnet about!

בורגרס החומוס

מרכיבים

2-15 עוז. cans chickpeas, מרוקן ושטוף
2 גבעולי סלרי, קצוץ דק
2 גזר, finely chopped or grated
1/2 בצלצל, finely chopped or grated
3 שיני שום, טחון או מגורר
½ כוס קמח חומוס
מלח ופלפל לפי הטעם
פטרוזיליה טרי, קצוץ
2 כפית. כמון טחון
2 כפית. כוסברה טחונה
2 כפית. פפריקה
2 כפית. זרעי סלרי
2 כפית. שמיר
קמצוץ הפפריקה חריף (אופציונלי)
2 כפות. קמח חומוס מעורבב עם 2 כפות. מים
1 כפות. שמן חריע + 2 כפית. שמן חריע

כיוונים

Heat a sauté pan or skillet with 2 כפית. שמן. מוסיף את הבצל, גזר, סלרי, ושום. Sauté for about 5 דקות, עד שהירקות רכים. בואו מגניב.

בקערה, לשים 4 כוסות (או 2 פחיות) of chickpeas and mash them up with a potato masher. Try to mash them well enough that there are as few whole chickpeas left as possible.

Add the veggie sauté to the chickpeas. Add the spices and mix well. Add the chickpea flour to the bowl.

In a tiny bowl or mug, לערבב 2 כפות. chickpea flour with 2 כפות. of water into a paste (that’s your “ביצת תחליף”) and add to bowl.

Mix it all up very well; I find it’s best to get in there and use your hands. When it’s thoroughly mixed, divide the mixture into patties. This recipe should make 6 large patties or 8 קטן יותר.

להוסיף 1 כפות. oil to a pan (I just wipe out the one I used to cook the veggies) and add the patties. Fry them in batches (or use 2 pans at once) על אש בינונית – you want to be sure the inside cooks too – על 7 minutes per side until they are golden and crispy. You could also bake them but it takes much longer.

We eat them without a bun but since it’s similar to falafel, you could have them with pita bread or in a lettuce wrap. I also made a Tzatziki Sauce for dipping.

Tzatziki Sauce

מרכיבים

2 cups plain non-dairy yogurt (or vegan mayo and/or sour cream). I was out of yogurt so I did a mix of mayo and sour cream.
1 מלפפון גדול, chopped finely
3 שיני שום, מגורד (or use garlic powder)
מיץ מלימון אחד
1 כפות. שמן זית
2-3 כפית. שמיר
מלח ופלפל לפי הטעם
Parsley, קצוץ לקישוט

כיוונים
Mix all the ingredients and let it set in the fridge for about 1/2 שעה.

לשרת 2 burgers per person with your favorite side dishes.

תהנה!
