As a student in a lab I experience on a daily basis how experiments can go completely wrong.
Today for lunch I decided to conduct an experiment in my kitchen that actually went to plan!
Oriental Vegetable and Chickpea Rosties!
1 1/2 cups of savoy cabbage
1 can of chickpeas
1 clove of garlic
1 inch of grated ginger
1 tsp of cumin
1 tbsp of soya sauce
1 tbsp of rice vinegar
1/2 tsp of Chinese 5 spice
1 tbsp of lemon juice
I made use of the convenience of the grater tool on my food processor to grate and mix all of the ingredients for me.
Next I took spoonfuls of the mixture and placed them into pancake moulds in a frying pan with a little canola oil. Make sure the pancake like mounds are tightly packed.
The pancake moulds aren’t necessary, but if you are using them allow the mixture to cook for a few minutes before removing the mould. Keep patting the mixture with a spatula whilst it is cooking to help the rosties keep their shape. When the underside is golden brown carefully flip the rosties over. I had to use some careful spatula and spoon action here to prevent the rosties from breaking, but they are well worth it. They should take 3-5 minutes on each side.
I served mine with a dipping sauce made from 0% TOTAL Greek Yoghurt, paprika and Tabasco sauce and a salad made up with spinach leaves, peppers, cashew nuts and chopped dates.
So delicious and healthy!!!
Have you had any successful experiments in the kitchen recently?
