Schnitzel are probably one of the most popular national dishes in Germany. But not every schnitzel has to be prepared from meat to live up to its name. In this post, I’ll show you how you can easily prepare delicious kohlrabi schnitzel that won’t miss the meat schnitzel.
Kohlrabi Schnitzel not only for the love of sustainability
At least since I’ve been dealing more intensively with the topics of sustainability and environmental friendliness, I’ve decided to consume less meat. As a result, I am of course dealing with alternatives that have not made me miss the previous meat consumption. A great alternative is this kohlrabi schnitzel, the taste of which really surprised and totally convinced me. It tastes amazingly tasty and fresh, while the consistency comes very close to that of a meat schnitzel. So even if you’re not a vegetarian, this kohlrabi schnitzel is definitely worth it. Personally, I will probably use vegetarian options more often now, especially when they taste that good. But don’t worry: I will continue to create delicious recipes with (organic) meat.
In addition to the taste, my kohlrabi schnitzel also convinces in terms of appearance and nutritional information. It looks delicious when it’s baked golden brown and has hardly any calories. Another plus point in comparison between kohlrabi schnitzel and meat schnitzel. By the way, my kohlrabi schnitzel tastes particularly delicious Grandma’s style cucumber salad .
