Soy-free, gluten-free and oil free.

Sometimes there are days that only comfort food will do. And for those days, I have the solution, right here. This no-pork schnitzel is made entirely from plants and oats. And the result is a beautiful mouthful of flavors and textures that will make you feel good. Cuz food is all about feeling good, isn't it? And in this case, extra healthy as well.

Enough chitchat! Here is the recipe!


• 1 cup oatmeal (medium cut)
• 2 tablespoons of ground flaxseeds
• 1/2 cup of water
• 2 potatoes cooked and mashed
• 1 1/2 cups of julienned cabbage
• 1/4 cup of juienned onions
• 1/2 cup of breadcrumbs
• Salt to taste
• White pepper to taste
• 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
• 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
• 1 1/2 cups of ground cornflakes


  • 1.
    Add the oatmeal, the ground flaxseeds, and the water into a bowl, mix to combine. Let it sit for 10 minutes.
  • 2.
    On medium-low heat, add the cabbage and the onions to a nonstick skillet, (or add a few drops of oil or water to the skillet) stir fry until soft, adding a little bit of water every time you notice that the cabbage and onions are getting dry. Sauté for 10 minutes or until the cabbage and onions are very soft and the water is completely dried out.
  • 3.
    Add the ground cornflakes to a plate.
  • 4.
    Let the cooked cabbage and onions cool down completely, then add it into a large bowl along with the remainder of the ingredients except for the ground cornflakes. Mix everything until well incorporated, let it sit for another 5 minutes.
  • 5.
    Take a small piece of the form a small ball by rolling the dough in your hands, then flatten it up into a disc directly in the cornflakes plate, cover the schnitzel with the cornmeal on both sides and immediately add it to your nonstick skillet, let it fry for 3 minutes each side on medium heat. If you prefer to use an oven you can bake it for 20 minutes at 180℃ (356℉) or for 10 - 15 minutes in the air fryer at 180 -185℃.
