Soy Schnitzel Strips (Tiritas de Milanesa de Soja)

Can’t decide what to bring to social gatherings, potluck dinners, or even picnics? Here’s a perfect recipe for you to make when you’re asked to contribute a little something to the spread. Like it as much as I do? You can also prepare it at home as a healthy alternative for your own family dinners.

Typically, schnitzel is a chicken cutlet made with boneless meat, thinned with a hammer, and then coated in breadcrumbs and fried. Eaten around the globe, schnitzel is especially popular in Argentina and Uruguay, and calledmilanesa. Made of meat or chicken, a milanesa can be topped with ham, marinara sauce, and local mozzarella, and then grilled to melt the cheese. Fries, fried eggs, or salads are commonly seen accompanying schnitzels.

In pursuing healthy alternatives while trying to make them a little more fun, I have made a few changes to the originalmilanesa recipe. I used soy as a main ingredient, and I shaped them like strips rather than oval cutlets.  As a result, this recipe is healthy, nutritious, and portable for adults and children alike. Without a doubt, this recipe is also ideal for those who follow dairy, ovo-vegetarian diets.

These soy schnitzel strips can be served with lemon juice, various salads, topped with your favorite salsa or a la Napolitana (tomato sauce and mozzarella cheese).

10 1/2 ounces soy flour
9 ounces whole wheat flour
2 tablespoons wheat germ
1 pinch dry oregano
1 pinch dry basil
1 pinch crushed red pepper flakes
1 dash Salt and Pepper
7 1/2 ounces water
2 tablespoons whole milk
1 egg
4 garlic cloves
1 handful fresh parsley
1) Coat the schnitzels with one egg, a handful of fresh parsley, one garlic clove, salt and freshly grounded black pepper, and 7 ounces of organic breadcrumbs
2) Preheat oven to 350 F.
3) Add the dry ingredients and dry spices in a bowl.
4) Wash the parsley. Peel and chop 4 garlic cloves and parsley. Heat a tablespoon of olive oil in a skillet. Add the chopped garlic and parsley. Reduce the heat to medium and cook for a few seconds.
5) Add the cooked parsley and garlic to the flour preparation. Stir in the water, milk and the egg.
6) Knead the dough until it becomes uniform. Roll the dough with a rolling pin up to a height of ¼ inch thick. Cut the dough into a 6 x 1 ½ inches rectangle.
7) Bring water to boil in a saucepan. Add the strips (only two at a time) in the boiling water for about 2 minutes. Remove the strips, set them aside and allow them to cool off.
8) Meanwhile, chop 1 garlic clove and the parsley. Beat the egg and add to the garlic and parsley mix. Season with salt and pepper to taste
9) Pass each schnitzel through the egg mixture. Roll in the bread crumbs until fully coated. Bake them with a touch of olive oil at 350 F for 10 minutes each side.
