Last nights dinner was the vegan version of meat and three veg. We all grew up watching the mushroom ad "it's mmmmmmeeeat for vegetarians", so tonight we made portabello schnitzels.
I can't remember where i got the recipe from but this is what you will need
half cup bread crumbs
half cup flour
1 tsp thyme
pinch of salt
half a cup of soy milk (or rice milk if u prefer)
Prepare 4-5 portabello mushrooms by wiping off the dirt and removing the stem. I don't like to wash mine because it makes them slimy, i just wipe them with a clean tea towel.
Put the soy milk into a bowl and in a separate bowl combine the bread crumbs, flour, salt and thyme.
Firstly dip the portabellos into the milk then into the dry mixture. make sure they are fully coated and set them aside.
Melt some butter into a frypan, i use the second highest setting because you don't want it to burn but you still want it to be hot. Now you should use enough butter so that when you put the mushrooms in it is bubbling/frothing up the edges. Put them in top down first and turn when they are a bit darker than golden. You basically want the breading to get nice and crispy and to heat the mushroom inside. This will only take a few minutes on each side.
We made 4 all together but i usually only end up eating one because they are so filling.
Serve with mashed potato, corn on the cob and green beans. Ahhhh, just like mum used to make, only cruelty free.
