One of those that not only vegetarians like is the celery schnitzel, which you can easily make yourself. Give it a try and let yourself be won over by the delicious taste.

So let's go!

Celery schnitzel not only suitable for vegans

➔ Ingredients:

For 4 people you need the following ingredients:

  • 1- 2 tubers of celery, depending on the size of the tubers
  • approx. 200 g breadcrumbs
  • 1 - 2 eggs
  • approx. 150 g flour
  • 2 tablespoons of milk or cream
  • salt and pepper

➔ Preparation:

1 First peel the celeriac and then cut it into slices approx. 1 - 1.5 cm thick. Meanwhile, bring to the boil in a saucepan with water and a little salt and then add the slices. They need to be blanched in about 3 minutes. After this time, the celery slices must be removed so that they can drain a little in a sieve. Now you can season the celery slices with salt and pepper - just like the normal schnitzel.

2 Now it's the breading. Prepare three soup plates or flat bowls.

»Shell 1: flour
»Shell 2: Whisked egg
»Shell 3: breadcrumbs or breadcrumbs

Each slice of celery is now rolled on both sides first in flour, then in egg and then in breadcrumbs. You should follow the order, otherwise the breading would not stick afterwards.

3 When all the slices are breaded, heat a little oil or clarified butter in a pan and then fry the celery schnitzel until golden brown. As with normal chips, it takes about 4 to 5 minutes.

" My advice:
Salted or fried potatoes go best with this, but you can also use the celery cutlet like a burger and place it on a roll with ketchup. Depending on your taste, you have a vegetarian schnitzel that is guaranteed to be well received by meat eaters.
