Gluten-Free Vegan Schnitzel
Gluten-Free Vegan Schnitzel is so good that you will add it to your weekly repertoire of recipes – There is nothing more satisfying than a crispy schnitzel. Yes, a little indulgent, but oh sooo good!
Schnitzels originate from Austria and are typically made with veal, pork or chicken coated with flour, eggs, and breadcrumbs, then fried to crispy perfection.
Gluten-Free vegan schnitzel that is sooo good!
Today I wanted to create a gluten-free, vegan schnitzel for my friends who follow a plant-based diet. But let me tell you, I had my work cut out!
Growing up in eastern Europe, schnitzels were one of my favourite meals. Just to be fair, a crispy coating on anything makes everything taste better.
To make the schnitzels, first I had to replace the meat. Using extra-firm tofu was the way to go. Tofu doesn’t have much flavour, so adding extra seasoning to the crumbs made this vegan dish very tasty.
I added oregano, garlic, and black pepper to season the tofu. Then, I replaced eggs with vegan eggs.
The secret to a delicious schnitzel is the crispy coating. Sure I could have used regular gluten-free bread crumbs, and you can too, but I found that coating wasn’t crisp enough.
So, I used toasted chickpea breadcrumbs. They made the coating super crispy and gluten-free and added fiber and protein to this vegan schnitzel recipe.
Once the schnitzels are coated, they are briefly fried, long enough for the coating to be crispy and the tofu to be heated.
The gluten-free, vegan schnitzel turned out amazing!
