Schnitzels, Mashed Potatoes And A Variety Of Veggies

What can I say? Just a wonderful and tasty feel good dish!

You will need:
8 Dried Soy Fillets (or TVP Fillets), 1 Vegetable Stock Cube, Herb Salt, Pepper, 2-3 tbs of Soya Sauce, BBQ Spice, 1 clove of Garlic, Panko Bread Crumbs, 1 cup Plain Flour, 150ml Mater and 1tsp Baking Powder
  • Fill a big pot with water and add the vegetable stock, soya sauce, garlic and spices. Remember to season the water a lot, this will flavour your fillets.
  • When the water is boiling, add your fillets and cook accordingly to the directions on the packet. I do mine for 30min.
  • Once 30min has gone, drain the water away and leave your fillets while mixing your flour "glue" for the bread crumbs to stick to your fillet.
  • Mix the flour with the baking powder and then add the water. Whisk until it forms a lump free thick paste/liquid. 
  • Pour your panko bread crumbs into a seperate bowl.
  • Start by first dipping your fillets in the flour paste/liquid (do them one by one) and then dipping them in the panko bread crumbs patting them to help the bread crumbs stick.
  • To make the coating easier, use a fork each, one for the flour mix and one for the panko. That will help to keep things clean and uncomplicated.

Mashed Potatoes
You will need:
8 medium sized Potatoes, 250ml of dairy free cooking cream, 50g Margarine, Salt, Pepper and Nutmeg
  • Peel and boil your potatoes in lightly salted water until soft.
  • Mash your potatoes (I use a potato press to get the mash lump free)
  • Add your cooking cream and margarine.
  • Taste, add your spices and taste again.

Variety of Veggies
4 Carrots, Vegetable Oil, Salt, Pepper, Broccoli and Peas
  • Peel your carrots, cut them into even sizes. Leave them fairly big still.
  • Toss them in some oil and a sprinkle of salt and pepper.
  • Cook in the oven on 200C / 390F for 30min or until golden and soft when pierced.
  • Steam your broccoli using a steamer or steamer insert bowl on your pan. Cook until just tender, broccoli that is too soft isn't nice.
  • The peas could just be defrosted in warm water or done quickly in your microwave oven with some margarine. Done in a microwave safe bowl covered with cling film.
