Vegan Baked Corn Schnitzel

Corn schnitzels were by far my favorite childhood lunch choices for years! I love corn so much--the sweetness, the texture, and the creaminess of it. I recreated my own homemade version, and it turned out delicious! Crunchy, sweet, salty and decadent. I like to eat mine with homemade Thousand Island Sauce--I just mix ketchup with vegan mayo, and dip the schnitzel in. It's a great kids-friendly meal.

Along with a zesty Tabbouleh salad, you can have a balanced, healthy dinner on the table.

Yields: about 21 patties

 

Ingredients:

1 package of sprouted organic firm tofu 14oz/397g

1 package of frozen and thawed organic corn 16oz/453g

3 tablespoon low sodium soy sauce

1.5 tablespoon tahini paste

1/2 cup organic sprouted spelt flour

1 cup panko bread crumbs 

1 cup fried onions- store bought or home made (I used Trader Joe's ones)

Pepper

Salt

1 teaspoon agave

Topping:

Olive oil spray

Panko bread crumbs

 

Directions:

Heat oven to 375F.

Take a large baking sheet and spray with olive oil. Set aside.

In a food processor add tofu ( you can break it into pieces before), add 2 cups of the corn, (keep the rest of the corn to mix in the end), soy sauce, tahini, spelt flour, panko bread crumbs, fried onion, pepper, agave, and salt.

Mix until you have a smooth texture. In another bowl add the thawed corn and mix in he batter from the food processor with a spatula. You will have a sticky texture batter.

Prepare two bowls: one with water, and another one with bread crumbs. Wet your hands and start forming the patties, dip each one in the bread crumbs, and lay nicely on the baking sheet. Repeat  again for each patty. Spray the patties with olive oil and bake for about 30 minutes, or until golden brown.
