Red Cabbage Salad + Quinoa Zucchini Schnitzel

This fresh and simple salad has become one of my favorites. I made it on the spot, because I was really craving for some red cabbage (yes I know it is weird). Next time I will try it with white one and some other type of cheese. So simple, but really healthy and fresh! You can upgrade the salad by adding more ingredients, but I really wanted to keep it simple and not lose the red cabbage taste I was craving so badly. The Quinoa Schnitzels are a great alternative for vegetarians, but also a healthy one for all-eaters, like myself! If you try those recipes let me know on the comments below!

Method
for the red cabbage salad
Wash the red cabbage good and cut in half. Store the rest in the fridge. With a big chef knife chop the cabbage in long stripes. Put it in a bowl and rub it with your hands with salt. That will soften it, but it will still keep its crunchiness.

Clean the carrots off their skin and rasp them. Add them in the salad and stir. Cut in big chunks the basil and add it in the bowl. Sprinkle with olive oil, more salt (if needed) and black pepper. Cut the goat cheese in even cubes and serve it with the salad.

Preheat your oven to 180 °C. In a deep plate mix the two eggs with milk, add the parsley and the garlic. Add some salt and pepper. In another plate add the quinoa flakes and the chia seed.

Cut the zucchinis in slices of 1cm. Dip th slices first in the egg mixture and then in the quinoa mixture. Transfer them to a lined with parchment paper baking pan and bake them for about 30 minutes, till they get golden brown. Add some lemon juice for extra taste.

Enjoy!
