With a food processor, blend the chickpeas and the cannellini beans until you obtain a creamy consistency. Add a little water if necessary. Add the potato and salt starch to this cream of legumes. Work the dough very well, which must be homogeneous: at this point, add the pepper and paprika and mix well. Crumble the cornflakes inside a plate and, after moistening the hands, bread a ball of dough in the cornflakes after flattening properly.

The cutlets must have an oval shape or in any case the appearance of a real cutlet and not of a meatball. So put the vegan cutlets on a non-stick pan or a baking sheet covered with baking paper, pour a little oil and bake at 180 °C for about 25 minutes.
