I know... not the most nutritious, but I really want something breaded and fried. I don't have any eggplant or wheat gluten...
(anything nut or bean based would be great... I dont have a lot of veggies on hand at the moment)
How about making a bean burger? You can make it with beans, an egg, spices and whatever else you have. Fry it and you're good to go!
ooohhh.. now i want pakoras :) I think I might have to try pan frying these ... :)
And... I tried making some patties with chickpeas, spinach, egg, and spices. I dipped them in breadcrumbs and fried... and they totally disintegrated in the pan with the oil... it was a pretty thick mix before I breaded them -- they totally held their shape ok... anyone know what that means? (I didnt measure, but it made about a 1/2 food processor full, and i used 2 eggs)
How about the thai green curry tofu patties by the FatFree Vegan blog? Super yummy.
They're not fried, but they are breaded. You probably could fry them. Check em out: http://blog.fatfreevegan.com/2011/05/green-curry-tofu-cakes.html
