VeganMoFo 2009 #3: Cutlets of GLORY!

Well MoFoers, I don't know about you but I have been a busy little bee reading as many blog entries as I can - and I have still only added blogs up to the letter D! I hope to add up to at least G tonight, wish me luck!

I'm on call tonight at the clinic, so just a quick post today. I thought I might talk about the wonders of a very simple creation - Vegetation's White Bean Cutlets with Sage and Garlic. One word - NOM! I love these so much. They are quick, easy, delicious and versatile. I can almost never find fresh sage, so I tend to increase the amount of dry sage and then add another fresh herb as well - parsley is really nice, I also added chives once for fun!

So... wanna see?





Very tasty! Very delicious. Above they are nestled alongside some Fusilli with Roasted Asparagus, Sun-Dried Tomatoes and Pine Nuts from Vegan Planet. Leftovers are also amazing on burgers, in sammiches and even just on their own, bread free, next to some salad or rice or vegetables or all of the above!

These really do make an excellent accompaniment to pasta dishes to add a bit of protein and make dinner a bit more tasty. Here's another example:


Here they make a fantastic fried to some Fusilli with Beats and Sautéed Asparagus with Garlic from Vegan Italiano.

Seriously - make them!

What are your favourite patties, burgers or cutlets to make?

Cute Cat Photo of the Blog


Today we delve into the archives again - yes, that is a young Susan... again. But ignore me. Look at that little black cutie patootie is Max. Max was my second cat, following the tragic demise of Mo. We got Max from the Cat Protection Society as an older kitten. His mother was feral, and he was feral for the first weeks of his life. This really showed - he was not one for cuddling or smooching. Very much and eat and out cat. However, he did take time out in his busy schedule to play table soccer with me. I'm pretty sure he won - I suck at that game. All random swinging the players and no actual strategy! Unfortunately we only had Max for six short weeks before he passed away - suspect hit by car but we can't be sure. Dad and I found him dead on the driveway on Valentine's Day morning after a terrible storm. Poor Max!

  1. Those cutlets look AWESOME! And Max is so handsome, I'm sorry to hear that he only got to spend a short time with you. :-(

  5. Nice looking cutlets you have there. I need to remember to give them a try. We usually stick with Vcon chickpea cutlets because they're so easy and reliable. But different is good!

  7. The cutlets look delicious! My favorites are the chickpea cutlets from Veganomicon. They're probably the recipe I've made the most out of that book.

  9. they sound really good. I've tried varying the vecon recipe with other beans before with varying levels of success. I'll have to try those!

  10. And Max looks a dab paw at table soccer!
    Those cutlets look yummy. My favourite cutlet at the moment is the good ole chickpea ones from Vcon. Once I sussed out that subbing fresh lemon rind with lemon concentrate is not acceptable (and very nice) I totally love them now.

  11. Poor little Max, he looked to be a lovely little fellow.

    On a happier note your cutlets look delectable. And, the whole dinner looks so colorful and full of healthy goodness.

    I don't have a favorite cutlet...yet, these may be the ones; I'll have to give them a try.

  13. that plate looks fantastic - I love a colourful spread of lots of different tastes - and I love your max pic - we had feral cats around when I was young - none as clever as max - and when I look back I feel quite sad for them

  14. I love that meal, especially the cutlets and fresh asparagus!

    I'm just randomly clicking links and reading the feeds in my Google reader when it comes to the MoFo posts - there are so many blogs! So much fun, though. Good luck adding them all!

  16. Awww I'm glad you like them so much!! We love them too! And I often just chuck in a bunch more dried sage when I can't get fresh (throwing in some mashed potato if you've run out of beans works too :P)

    And poor Max :( So sad. One of my kittie's, Cindy, got run over when I was 13. I was so devastated.

    And awww, look at you! Look at your curls!! One of my girls has curls like those :) They're adorable!

  17. Can't wait to make those cutlets. What a sad story about Max though. At least he had some happy table football times in his short life.
