Buckwheat is a cereal that is gluten-free due to its properties. It has a slightly nutty taste. It contains a significant amount of rutin, which has beneficial effects on blood vessels, supporting their elasticity. It positively benefits our cardiovascular system. You can process it in a sweet or salty version.
Fake Schnitzel step by step
To prepare fake schnitzel, you will need 2 cups of buckwheat, 2.5 cups of water, a small onion, rapeseed oil, carrots, 3 eggs, 2 cloves of garlic, salt and pepper. Prepare breadcrumbs for coating, if you are going to prepare a gluten-free version, buy gluten-free. Soak buckwheat in water and cook until soft. Once done, let it cool. During that time, heat the oil and fry the finely chopped onion on it. Fry it for about three minutes. Add the finely grated carrot and continue until the onion is nicely crispy.
Once you get back to the buckwheat, crack three eggs into it and start mixing with a stick blender. Sprinkle fried carrots with onions, season with salt, pepper and garlic and mix again.
Make patties from the mixture and coat them in breadcrumbs on both sides. Fry them on one side for about 4 minutes, then turn them over and repeat the process. Place the patties on an absorbent napkin to get rid of excess fat. Serve them with a creamy dip. Just mix a cup of sour cream, a clove of garlic, salt and fresh green herbs.
