ALMOND AND HERB CRUSTED SCHNITZEL WITH PEA, MINT AND FETA SMASH

© Copyright Chalmar Beef 2020

Almond and herb crusted schnitzel with pea, mint and feta smash.

When you live a gluten-free lifestyle, you’re always looking for ways to re-make your favourite dishes to fit your diet. Using almond flour is a great substitute for bread crumbs or flour. Almond flour coats easily, fries well and offer a much nicer nuttier flavour.

What we love about it: Schnitzel is an easy-to-make 15-minute meal that proves eating healthy doesn’t have to take a lot of time



Ingredients:

  • For the smash:
  • 480g frozen peas, thawed (or fresh hand-shelled peas and blanched)
  • 80ml mint leaves, roughly chopped
  • 100g plain feta cheese, crumbled
  • Sea salt
  • Black pepper
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • For the Schnitzel:
  • 4 Chalmar Beef rump schnitzels
  • 2 eggs
  • 100g almond flour
  • 60ml parmesan grated
  • 1 handful chopped parsley
  • 5 ml lemon zest
  • Sea salt
  • Black pepper
  • Butter for frying

Method

To make the smash
1. Place the peas in a large bowl and roughly mash with a potato masher.
2. Add the mint, feta, seasoning and lemon juice.
3. Toss to combine and set aside

To make the schnitzel
1. In a small bowl, beat eggs with a fork until fully combined.
2. In a second small bowl, mix the almond flour, parmesan, parsley, lemon zest and seasoning.
3. Heat the frying pan on medium heat and add butter.
4. Dip schnitzels into the egg mixture to ensure both sides are covered.

To serve
Serve schnitzel with pea smash, extra mint and lemon wedges.

Chalmar Farm kitchen advice:

-Any leftover almond and herb crusted schnitzel are great for lunch boxes or chopped on a salad.
-Use desiccated coconut instead of almond flour for your schnitzel.
