According to Sina, a tour of Swiss German cuisine is not complete without: chocolate, potatoes, cheese, and veal. OK, vegan chocolate and potatoes are a piece of cake, vegan cheese is totally doable, but vegan veal? I'm a bit stumped.
Here's what we're thinking for the menu:
*Chocolate cupcakes with Swiss flag icing
*Züri-Gschnätzlets (traditionally veal in a creamy mushroomy wine sauce)
I'm thinking seitan would be a great substitute for the veal, but I've never had veal in my life, so I have no idea what seitan seasonings/method would be best to mimic the veal. Normally I use one of Isa's seitan recipes then steam the seitan cutlets wrapped in tinfoil to get a chewy texture, but I've heard veal is softer than beef so I'm not sure how accurate that would be. Any suggestions?
*Rösti (potato pancakes)
*Steamed veggies in a vegan cheese fondue
Does anyone have a good fondue recipe? I'm looking at the Swiss Fondue recipe in Vegan Vittles and I'm a bit weary of the rolled oats. I've had an oat-based vegan cheese before and it was the grossest thing I've tasted in a long while!
To all the Swiss people and Swiss food connoisseurs out their, is there anything we're missing?
What should we drink?
