Chickpea Fries [V, GF]

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, crispy, spicy and addictive. I served them with a creamy dipping sauce. And I’ll let you guess who got the last one. Enjoy!

Chickpea Fries

Ingredients

  • 2 cups water
  • 1 cup chickpea flour
  • 2 Tbs. safflower oil, divided
  • 1 tsp. Kosher salt
  • ½ tsp. black pepper
  • ½ tsp. garlic powder
  • ½ tsp. paprika
  • ½ tsp. oregano
  • 1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper
  • Oil or cooking spray for pan

Preparation

  1. Bring the water to a boil in a medium sized saucepan. Add the chickpea flour slowly and stir until smooth. Add 1 Tbs. oil and spices and mix for another minute or two until it is thickened. Remove from the heat. Oil a small baking dish or casserole pan. Spread the chickpea batter into the pan evenly, smoothing the top with a spatula. Refrigerate for at least one hour or overnight until it is firm and solid.
  2. 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.
  3. Heat the remaining oil in a skillet over medium high heat and cook the chickpea fries until they are browned and crispy on both sides, about 5 minutes per side. Transfer to a paper-towel lined dish or cooling rack and sprinkle with Kosher salt. Serve with your favorite dip.

COOKBOOK DETAILS

When Rhea became vegan, there were no places in her neighborhood to eat so she had to learn to cook.  That led to the creation of The "V" Word blog which focuses on vegan versions of favorite, familiar foods. Because if you can have the foods you love, the foods you crave, the foods you grew up with, all in a compassionate, cruelty-free way, why wouldn't you?  Rhea is also a college professor specializing in child and forensic psychology. She shares her life with a rescued Westie mix named Benoni and a rescued husband named Tom. It is Rhea's hope that she can spread the "V" Word and compassion to improve the world.

Swap out the oil for coconut and sounds good. Otherwise toxic at that heat.
