I’ve officially watched the entire series of Arrested Development again. In two days. And even though I’ve seen it four times already, I still laugh so hard I cry at most of the episodes. But, we’ve already dedicated a post to the genius that is AD, so let’s move onto something we’ve never dedicated a post to….chickpea & sweet potato sliders! (Like how I did that? I’m skilled at transitions).
Sometimes I make recipes that fail, sometimes I make recipes that are okay or good, and then sometimes I make recipes that SING. That jump up into your face, kiss you right on the lips and dance into your mouth. (That made sense somewhere in my brain). This is one of those opera singing recipes. Sweet potatoes and chickpeas? They work. They should do it more often. And when they are feeling freaky, which they should do a lot, they should always let arugula, pepper jack cheese and mayo join. Because what you get is the best orgy of flavors ever.
The patties are crispy on the outside, yet slightly soft on the inside, which make it almost melt in your mouth. I definitely had a few (read 4) of these as soon as they were done in the skillet. I just popped them right into my mouth. Poor E only got two. But, it’s his fault for not being here?
Wouldn’t these make perfect little snacks for a summer picnic or BBQ? I’m thinking these could even replace some of your burgers at your Memorial Day shindigs! Who needs beef when you can have something that’s vegetarian and so much better? I’m really leaning towards making these again today since it’s going to be 92 degrees here in DC. Okay, maybe not 92 but hot as b***s. It literally snowed last week, now I’m playing with a beach ball in the backyard. Whoever said global warming isn’t real needs a swift kick to the face.
