Ingredients
Batter
  • Chickpea Magic Mix
  • 1 cup water
Cooking
  • 3 to 4 bagels (I used vegan pretzel bagels)
  • oil for frying (I prefer avocado oil)
Instructions
  1. Mix the chickpea magic mix with  water and whisk until smooth.
  2. Heat up the oil in a frying pan. Use enough oil to have about ½ inch or (~1 to 1.5 cm) depth in the frying pan. I used avocado oil, which is stable at high heat and results in a crisp and flavorful crust. You can choose another vegetable oil that you like.
  3. Slice the bagels, dip the slices in the batter and place them in the pan once the oil is hot. Don’t overcrowd the pan though, fry in batches.
  4. Fry the toasts on both sides until you get a golden-brown crust.
  5. Enjoy it drizzled with maple syrup, with jams, with fresh fruits, or go for savory options like your favorite plant cheese. The bread itself is not sweet so it is really delicious and versatile.
  6. You can also keep the leftovers (if any) in the fridge and warm up later, it will still be good.

Vegan Calamari

Ingredients

  • 8-9 small trumpet mushrooms or 4 king trumpet mushrooms
Batter
  • ½ cup Chickpea Magic Mix
  • ½ cup corn flour
  • 1 cup beer or mineral water
  • 1 cup panko bread crumbs

[MODIFY FOR CHICKPEA MAGIC MIX ABOVE]

Cooking

  • avocado oil (vegetable oil ) for pan fraying
Instructions
  1. Wash the trumpet mushrooms, trim ends and tops.
  2. If using king trumpet mushroom, peel the skin off with vegetable peeler. You don’t need to do this step if you are using regular trumpet mushrooms.
  3. Slice the mushroom stems crosswise into disks
  4. Use a small round cookie cutter to punch out the core of each slice so that you end up with rings. I actually used the tip of a cream squeezer as the cutting mold.
Batter
  1. Put theChickpea Magic Mix and corn flour into a medium mixing bowl. Add the beer (or mineral water) and stir to combine.
  2. In a separate bowl, put  panko bread crumbs.
Cooking
  1. Dip the mushroom rings first in the liquid batter and then into the breadcrumb , coating them as uniformly as possible.
  2. Put the avocado oil (or other vegetable oil) in a frying pan over medium-high heat. I prefer to use an iron cast pan.
  3. Wait until the oil is very hot but not smoking. Add the mushroom rings in small batches to make sure you don’t crowd out the pan. Fry the rings on each side until they have a golden-brown crust.
