Keto Pumpkin Schnitzels

© 2022 |

© 2022 |

These non-traditional schnitzels with a seasonal twist - PUMPKIN would make a delicious Thanksgiving or fall appetizer. The crunchy nutty cheesy coating of the pumpkin schnitzel is a perfect complement to the sweet soft pumpkin inside. They are perfect to eat on its own, but you can dip them with a sour cream sauce or homemade mayonnaise with herbs if desired. I used Hokkaido pumpkin, which doesn’t have be skinned, but butternut, or muscat pumpkin would also great for the recipe.

  • 1 Hokkaido pumpkin
  • 2 tbsp Chilli oil
  • 2 tbsp Freshly chopped rosemary
  • 100 g Ground blanched almonds
  • 60 g Parmigiano-Reggiano, grated
  • 1/2 tsp Mustard powder
  • Sea salt and freshly milled black pepper
  1. Preheat the oven to 220C/410F. Core the pumpkin, leaving the skin on, and cut into 12 equal-sized slices. Brush each slice with chilli oil.
  2. Roughly chop the rosemary needles, mix with the ground blanched almonds, grated Parmiginao-Reggiano cheese, mustard powder, salt and pepper in a bowl.
  3. Turn the pumpkin slices in it, press the breadcrumbs down a little and spread on a baking tray lined with baking paper.
  4. Bake for approx. 25 minutes on the top half of the oven until crispy and golden brown.

schnitzel is one of my fave Deutch words LOL I always have a hokkaido in my pantry at this time of the yahre. However I would skip the parmigiano part as the way they make that cheese is too brutal and not vegetarian at all, they use some enzymes taken from lil' calves to make it (criesinconsoleably).

Margaret D 27/10/22 10:32

That does look nice and tasty.

2pots2cocok 27/10/22 11:17
