I didn't make these, but I ate the shit outta them. A friend of mine's fella works in a restaurant/pub and made me a vegan version of their famous fried pickles. I am told the breading is made of flour, beer, soy milk, and spices. They are tremendous. I am a lucky chickpea. My friends spoil me. Actually, we spoil each other. I keep them supplied in vegan treats, and they make me yummy savories in exchange.
