Can I freeze the vegan kebabs?
Yes, the vegan kebabs freeze well, so why not make a double batch and put the leftovers in the freezer for another day.
Keto falafel
You could also turn the kebabs into falafels by rolling them into balls. After they have been baked, you can fry them in flavourless coconut oil or avocado oil for a crispier crust.
Serving suggestions

You could also serve this dish with some oven-roasted veggies, like aubergine/eggplant, courgette/zucchini and onion or top them with a generous dollop of guacamole."

They do sound good. Not certain where (or whether) I can find vegan protein powder but will investigate.

William Kendall said...

That sounds different.

Dewena said...

That garlic sauce sounds yummy too, jotted it down. I always drain the chickpeas so it sounds thrifty to have a use for it!

I'm not familiar with vegan kebab, but if it's high in protein, I'll certainly give it a try.

They look yummy, but so many ingredients. But, if you can make a good number and freeze them that would make the work seem less.
