This wonderful, easy peezy, stir fried sweet and sour chicken.  Which reminds me, I need to get up in a few minutes and make the rice (it is made with pineapple juice for the liquid).  The recipe originally came from a Kikoman sauce advertisement and I've personalized it some.  :D

Lebanon bologna and egg salad on crackers.  I'm a big fan of eating appetizers for dinner...

Okay but keep in mind i am a little bit of this little bit of that cook.

1 15 oz can chick peas
1 cup or so of oatmeal
1/4 tsp cayenne
1/4-1/2 tsp of cumin
1/2 tsp of coriander
1/2 tsp of garlic powder
1/2 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp of onion powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp of lemon juice
I small onion minced
1/2 green bell pepper, minced
2 carrots, shredded
1 egg
butter or oil for sweating out the veggies and cooking the patties.

Take the peppers and onion and put them into the pan with a bit of butter or oil. Add in the carrots when the onions and peppers are soft. Cook for a moment more and set aside to cool.

Take a food processor, and grind up the oatmeal into a powder. You can also use breadcrumbs for the binder if you like. dump it into a bowl so you can add it back in later.
Put the chickpeas into the food processor now, and make those into a paste. Dump into another bowl and add in the spices, and the cooled vegetable mixture, along with the lemon juice. add in some of the oatmeal, and mix it a bit, before adding in the egg. Add more of the oatmeal mixture until you can form it into a patty. If it is too dry it will fall apart, too wet and it will stick to your hands and not work when cooking.

Form four patties. The good thing about these is that they don't shrink when cooking. pour oil into the pan (or add butter) enough to cover the bottom. Place patties in and wait 5 minutes or so to flip. They should be a lovely brown color. wait about 4-5 minutes and they are done. Serve with tzatziki sauce, tomato slices, lettuce and more sliced onion if you like.

Tzatziki sauce:

Half of a cucumber, seeded and either shredded or diced fine.
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp chopped garlic (optional, but well, i had it in the fridge)
1/2 tsp of lemon juice

Mix everything together and chill.

Thank you Nikko-Chan! I'll have to give them a try sometime.

Tonight was sloppy joes and steamed broccoli.
