Chickpea Fried Steak

This is my modified version of the recipe for "Coal Miner's Chicken Fried Steak & Gravy" from Ann Jackson's "Cookin' Southern- Vegetarian Style"


1 cup cooked chickpeas
1 cup tofu
2 tbsp mustard (any kind...yellow or brown both work well)
1/4 cup tahini
1/2 tsp hing
1 tsp salt
1-2 cups rolled oats (uncooked)

breading mix:

1/3 cup nut...ritional yeast flakes
1/3 cup flour
1/3 cup sesame seeds

1/3 cup oil for frying


leftover breading mixture
3 cups milk or unsweetened plain soymilk
4 tablespoons butter
1 tsp salt
pinch black pepper
dash of soy sauce

Put all ingredients in food processor except oats and blend well, adding enough water so that it all mixes smoothly.   Blend in enough oats to make the mixture hold together.  It should be about the consistency of cookie dough.

Shape into patties.  Dredge in the breading mix and fry until both sides are brown and crispy.  I use a heavy, cast iron frying pan so I can slow cook them and get them nice and crisp. Remove from pan.

To make the gravy:  Add the leftover breading mixture to the skillet.  Let it toast for a minute or two, then add the butter, melt, and let it cook over low heat for a few more minutes.  Add the milk or soymilk.  Mix well and cook over low heat.  When it starts to bubble and thicken,  stir constantly until desired thickness is reached.  Add salt, pepper, and soy sauce.  Serve over chickpea fried steaks.
