טשיקקפּעאַ פרייז

גוט, so in my last post I was talking about the warm Spring weather and how it was time to eat lots of salads. A few days later and it’s cold and windy outside. That’s March for you – unpredictable.

So now that it feels too cold to eat salad, I’ve been cooking chilis and stews and craving favorite comfort foods. One favorite I have been thinking about is chickpea fries. I first had them at פּעאַסעפאָאָד קאַפע in NYC. אין פאַקט, I wrote about them in my רעצענזיע of Peacefood Cafe 2 יאר צוריק. I wrote then “The famous chickpea fries got their reputation for a reason. They are large, קריספּי, געווירציק און אַדיקטיוו. זיי קומען מיט אַ קרימי הויז דיפּפּינג סאָוס. This is definitely one of those appetizers where you start negotiations over who gets the last one.”

Chickpea Fries were definitely on my to-do list of favorite appetizers I had to make for myself and I did. They are incredibly fast and easy to make. It’s just like making Polenta Fries except I pan-fried these instead of baking them. My Chickpea Fries are large, קריספּי, געווירציק און אַדיקטיוו. I served them with a creamy dipping sauce. And I’ll let you guess who got the last one. האַנאָע האָבן!

Remove from the refrigerator. Loosen the edges with a butter knife or thin spatula. Turn the dish over while keeping one hand on the chickpea block and carefully let the block land on a cutting board. Cut the block into fries. You should get at least 16 fries depending on the size you cut them.

    הי ריאַ! My best friend and I were just at Peacefood Cafe yeaterday and had the chickpea fries! Delish! So happy to have found your recipe! אָבער, we didn’t see your recipe for the dipping sauce…do you have one? דאַנק!

      Hi Jena, I usually make a quick ranch or spicy ranch dressing. Mix vegan mayo and sour cream with garlic powder, קראָפּ, black pepper and fresh chives. Add hot sauce if you want it spicy. Horseradish-Dill Mayo is also good – that just takes mayo, כריין, קראָפּ, הייס סאָוס, salt and pepper and scallions. Sometimes just mayo with Worcestershire sauce and garlic is a simple one.

    i didn’t do a very good job of keeping to look like fries like yours. mine look like patties. haha. hubby loves them though. it’s a little too spicy for me, so i’m gonna make another batch but without the cayenne pepper. i forgot i shouldnt be eating spicy things cuz i’m still nursing. it’s just the right amount of spicy for my hubby though. thanx! and to the commentor above, yes chickpeas are really healthy for you!

  10. ריאַ פּאַרסאָנס מאַרץ 28, 2012 בייַ 4:38 בין #
