Have any of you guys ever tried steaming the chickpea cutlets recipe from V-con? If so, how long did you steam them for? I think the texture would be pretty good steamed but I can't figure out offhand how long they'd need.

OK, nobody knew the answer but I did it anyway. I made my cutlets sort of on the fat side and steamed them in an envelope of foil for liiiiike 45-50 minutes. It worked! If I do it again I will make them thinner and steam for a shorter time.

did you like them better than pan-fried?

I think pan-fried is the tastiest way if you can get it right (not too doughy in the middle), but I'm watching my calories so I was trying to avoid using extra oil. Usually when I've made them in the past I baked them. I think the steamed texture is similar to baked, but perhaps a bit softer? They would still be firm enough to hold up on a sandwich or something though. I will probably make them this way again, mostly because my apartment has ridiculously hot steam heat and I want to avoid turning the oven on.
