almond and haloumi crumbed schnitzels

with creamed spinach

  • 4 veal schnitzel steaks (600g)
  • ¾ cup (90g) grated haloumi
  • 1 cup (140g) natural sliced almonds, crushed
  • 1 tablespoon thyme leaves, finely chopped
  • sea salt and cracked black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • lemon wedges, to serve

creamed spinach

  • 2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1 teaspoon finely grated lemon rind
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 2 cups (500ml) unsweetened almond milk
  • 2 x 200g bunches English spinach, rinsed and trimmed
  • ½ teaspoon finely grated nutmeg
  1. Preheat oven to 240°C (475°F). Using a meat mallet, pound the steaks until 2mm thick. Set aside. Place the haloumi, almond, thyme, salt and pepper on a tray and toss to combine. Place the mustard and egg in a small bowl and whisk to combine. Working one at a time, dip the steaks into the egg mixture and press into the almond mixture to coat. Place on a lightly greased oven tray and set aside.
  2. To make the creamed spinach, heat the oil in a large non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Add the garlic, salt and pepper and cook, stirring, for 2 minutes. Add the lemon rind, mustard and almond milk and mix to combine. Bring to a simmer and cook for 6–8 minutes or until reduced. Add the spinach and cook for 1 minute or until wilted. Sprinkle over the nutmeg. Set aside and keep warm.
  3. Place the schnitzels in the oven and cook, turning halfway, for 5 minutes. Serve the schnitzels with creamed spinach, pepper and lemon wedges.  Serves 4.
