It is always nice to discover a new ingredient or a product but we seem to be in vegan heaven with some of the products from Spoon’s Vegetarian Butcher recently. First we tried the traditional sausages –and that should be a separate post because it deserves it. Tonight, we have had the schnitzels. Let’s talk about the schnitzels; Ok; they are big like the real schnitzels. They are tasty like the real schnitzels –minus the cruelty and the fat content. In short, they make substantial, tasty meals. Not to mention they make life easier.
We are going to have Dad here in Sydney soon and me and my husband both think that as a non-vegan he’d enjoy these schnitzels as much as we do. Tonight we had them with first boiled then baked baby potatoes and pan-fried asparagus.
My version of Vienna Style Vegetarian Schnitzels; served with lemon juice drizzled over plus lemon slices -you will need more lemon juice. Just squash the slices with your fork to add more zest as you go- pan-fried asparagus and some baked baby potatoes.
Be careful with Spoon’s products as they do not have any preservatives, they have use by date which is different to expiry date. The products need to be consumed before their use by date and should be kept refrigerated. Once you open the pack you have 4 days to consume the whole lot although freezing another option to prolong product’s shelf life.
