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).
