This dish is basically just something I assembled for a Sunday dinner. Only the sauce is my own creamy vegan mushroom sauce, but the other components are ready made. This is a perfect dinner for a Sunday when you don't want to spend a lot of time in the kitchen.
The main part of this dish are Schupfnudeln, which are southern German and Austrian potato dumplings or thick noodles that are just being pan-fried to get a nice and crispy coating. I'm determined to make my own some day, just like Schnitzel of this style, so watch this space! Schupfnudel can be purchased in various online shops and German shops even outside of Germany, so you should be able to get the ready made ones as well.
Here's a list of the components for this German inspired dish, and how I prepared each one of them.
300 g chestnut mushrooms
250 ml oat cream
1 tbsp olive oil
4 spring onions
2 garlic cloves
1 tsp parsley
1 tsp salt
½ tsp ground black pepper
4 vegetarian breaded Schnitzel
160 g flower sprouts
500 g Schupfnudeln
Butter for frying (oil is also fine for a lighter meal)
The mushroom sauce takes the longest to make, so start with prepping that. Slice the mushrooms and chop the spring onions, onion and garlic. Heat the olive oil in a pan and cook the onion and garlic soft. Add the mushrooms and spring onions, and let it cook for a few minutes so that the mushrooms turn a bit darker. Add the oat cream and seasoning. Let the sauce cook until the cream has absorbed the mushroom flavour nicely.
I baked the Schnitzel in the oven to avoid extra oil usage. They just needed about 15 minutes in the oven.
At the same time I steamed the flower sprouts, which are a hybrid vegetable between kale and brussels sprouts. They make a really nice side to many autumn and winter dishes.
Cook the Schupfnudeln in hot butter in a frying pan until they get golden brown and little crispy.
And that's all! Enjoy your meal!
