Chickpea Tenders With Flaxseeds
What You'll Need
1 ½ cup cooked chickpeas, drained
¼ tsp of black pepper
½ tsp of cumin
½ tsp of curry powder
¼ tsp of cayenne pepper
¼ tsp of chilli powder or paprika
2 Tbsp reduced-sodium soy sauce
1 tsp of garlic, minced
1 heaping Tbsp of nutritional yeast
½ Tbsp of salt-free poultry seasoning
¼ tsp of onion powder
¼ cup of ground golden flax seed
How to Make It
1 Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
2 Add all the ingredients to a food processor (or use a potato masher) and process (or mash) until mixed. You should get a crumbly consistency with everything combined.
3 Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
4 Shape the mixture into tenders or nuggets.
5 Bake until extra crispy for 20-22 minutes, flipping gently halfway through.
6 Let them cool a bit before serving.
They go great with ketchup, barbeque sauce, and many other favorite condiments.
Increase the cayenne pepper to ½ tsp if you like it really spicy, warning they'll be hot!
You can make a large batch of these fingers ahead of time and freeze them.
