Vegan Kohlrabi "Schnitzel" awesomeness.

Hallo meine Lieben,

I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend!
As you may know, I love to cook and I love to eat. So I thought it might be nice to share some recipes once in a while. Let me know if you hate the idea. 
This recipe is easy, doesn't take much time and the end product is very delicious. Let me know how you like it if you decide to give it a try.

I am talking about Kohlrabi-Schnitzel. Schnitzel is a very popular thing in German speaking countries but I don't eat meat as you probably  and that is why I have to to be a little creative when it comes to Schnitzel. There are many vegan and vegetarian alternatives made of soy, seitan and so on but I got pretty excited when I heard that you can make a Schnitzel out of Kohlrabi (also called turnip cabbage). 
Kohlrabi is this thing here.



And this is what you need.

- 1 Kohlrabi
- some flour
- some water
- some breadcrumbs 
- some spices
- a pan, an oven, some oil, a knife. 

You don't need very much as you can see.
And here here is what you need to do with that stuff:

- remove the leaves from the Kohlrabi and give it to your bunnies. They will be happy about it. Not too much at a time though.
- peel the Kohlrabi, a simple potato peeler should work fine.
- cut the Kohlrabi into thin slices. 3-5 mm should be fine. It depends on how you prefer it.
- mix the flour with some water. A soup bowl would be perfect for it.  You can already add some spices to this mixture. I love it spicy so I usually use a lot of spices. Again, it depends on how you like it. Put each slice of Kohlrabi into the flour-water-mix so that everything is covered.
- put some breadcrumbs in another bowl. You can also add some spices. Then put the wet Kohlrabi slices in the breadcrumbs. The slices should be covered with breadcrumbs because of the sticky flour stuff. 
- repeat this with every slice of Kohlrabi.
- put some oil in a pan and roast the slices in there. 5-1o minutes and they should be ready. If you excessively roast them, then they will look like mine.
- I added some more spices in the end but just because I really love spicy food.
- enjoy!



You can eat them with pretty much everything you want. I love potatoes and salad for example. 

Oh, another thing.
I don't know what will happen with Google Friend Connect but if you like my blog you can also follow me via Bloglovin here. Thank you!

Have a wonderful weekend!

  7. Awe, Katrin, this looks really good! ;) I'd love for you to share more recipes here!

    I was wondering how long ago did you give up meat? Do you miss it at all?

    Hope you have an awesome week! ;D

    1. Thanks Miki! I am glad you like it! I will share some more recipes! I wasn't sure if people would be interested!

      Oh, I stopped eating meat when I was 11 or 12. I watched a documentary about slaughterhouses and animal transports and I stopped eating it immediately. I don't miss it at all. And I am not just saying there. There are so many alternatives which taste so much better and are much healthier. I really feel a lot better.

      Have a wonderful week!
      Hugs!
