Horse's Cutlets ‒ Härän pihvit

Wee, I found some dried organic horse beans. They used to be a common ingredient in Finnish food before Christian invaders brought peas here. Ketunleipä had this patty idea which is apparently originally from a book called Veganomicon. That sounded like an ideal way to use the beans and make cutlets without lots of the costy gluten flour. (Moreover, these don't look quite as much like fried pieces of someone's bottom, which was a bit of a problem the first time I tried seitan.)

The stucture turned out nicely chewy but the taste was a little stale. Either I haven't familiarized myself into the flavour of horse beans yet or there was something wrong with my standard spicing. Maybe I should settle for just some apple cider, cranberries and herbs next time?

- 3 dl cooked horse beans (fava beans)
- 2 tbsp rape oil
- 2 dl gluten flour
- 1 dl breadcrumbs
- 0.5 dl water
- 0.5 dl smooth tomato sauce
- 1 tbsp hemp butter
- 1 tbsp apple vinegar
- 1 tbsp soy sauce
- 1 tbsp nutritional yeast
- 1 chili
- 2 garlic cloves
- oil for frying

Mash the beans and the oil into a paste. Throw in the rest of the ingredients. Shape into cutlets and fry. (I got 8 rather large ones from this portion.)

Enjoy with mashed potatoes. Or place between two toasts with onion, mustard and ketchup and voilá ‒ you've got yourself a hamburger.

In case I'll find the right way to spice these I just might make some for the freezer. They seem like something to take for a picnic or a grill evening.
