Aubergine/eggplant season is in full swing, and if you need a creative way to prepare them, make plant-based schnitzel! This is one of the things I miss most from when I was eating meat, and I wanted to celebrate the harvest with one of my favorite dishes.

Egg plant Schnitzel 🍆🍋

-Cut the eggplant in to thin slices leaving the end attached to the stem 
-massage each layer with salt and let is sit in a pasta strainer to loose the excessive water it will take a couple of hours 
-pat them dry and now immerge them in the following bowls in this order 

🥣bowl 1 :mix your favourite spices and herbs together with flour 
🥣bowl 2 :chickpea water 
🥣bowl 3 : bread crumbs 

Deep fry using vegetable or seed oil until golden brown and soft inside .
We love serving them with a fresh potato and pickle salad on the side and squeeze some lemon on top of the schnitzel for extra freshness 🍋🍋‍🟩🥗

It finally happened!! I managed to grow chickpeas and it was so worth it, such an awesome plant 🌱 

Thank you @plantfuture for the delicious recipe!

Ingredients For the Filling:

- 2 x cups green chickpeas or green lilva/toor peas (fresh or frozen)
- 4-8 x green chilies (to taste)
- Chopped cilantro
- 2-4 x garlic cloves
- 1 x inch ginger piece
- 1 x tsp fennel seeds
- 1 x tsp cumin seeds
- A pinch of turmeric
- 1/2 x tsp each of cumin and coriander powder
- Salt to taste

Ingredients For the Dough:

- 2 x cups all-purpose flour
- Salt to taste
- 1 x tsp chili powder
- 1/2 x tsp carom seeds
- 1 x tsp cumin seeds
- 2-3 x tbsp oil (1 tbsp for a lighter version)
- Warm water (as needed)

Additional: Oil for frying

Instructions: 

Dough: In a bowl, combine flour, salt, chili powder, carom seeds, and cumin seeds. Mix in the oil until the mixture binds. Gradually add warm water, kneading to create a firm, soft dough. Set aside.

Filling: In a food processor, blend peas, garlic, ginger, cilantro, and chilies to achieve a coarse texture. In a pan with heated oil, add fennel and cumin seeds followed by the blended mixture. Cook until dry. Incorporate spices and salt, stir well, and allow to cool.

Form dough into lemon-sized balls.

Assembling Kachoris: Roll out a dough ball into a small disc. Place 1-2 tsp of filling in the center, sealing with the dough edges. Gently roll it again to shape the kachori, ensuring not to overfill.
Heat frying oil in a pan. Fry the kachoris in batches over low to medium heat until golden brown on both sides. Drain on paper towels.

Serve hot, paired with chutney.

We traveled to Northern California to celebrate @hayday 12th birthday party, where we were tasked with creating a dish inspired by the 50s and rock and roll era.

I decided to bring a zero-waste peanut butter and jelly banana bread. To up the challenge, it was entirely plant-based and cooked over an open fire. The idea was to merge two of Elvis’s favorite ingredients with my unique twist.

This is the best banana bread I’ve ever made, and I’m not just saying that because it’s mine but you can see people’s reactions in the @hayday full YouTube video, which speak for themselves.

Now, I need your help! There’s a chance to vote for my recipe, and if it wins, it will be featured in their cookbook, and you’ll get the full recipe. Download the game and vote for my dish! 🙏🏻

Much love,
Alessandro
