One with only marginal success. Perhaps it was because of the disparate sources of inspiration. You see, the other night when I made the chickpea-hijiki salad from Vegan with a Vengeance, I was watching Emeril right after that and he was making fried shrimp patties. So the proverbial light bulb above my head came on and tonight I tried out my idea of mixing chickpeas and some hijiki with bread crumbs and other seasonings and frying that up in little patties. I made a tartar sauce from Vegenaise, pickles, onion powder, paprika and lemon juice to go with the patties, plus some kale on the side. Sounds and looks interesting, and it really didn't taste too bad, but it's probably not something I'll make again so I won't bother with the recipe.
