Nutritional values

This food not only provides you with plenty of fibre: it also covers the daily requirement of pantothenic acid, vitamin B2 and biotin. All three support cell growth and thus a smooth regeneration of the skin. Another advantage is the good potassium content, because this mineral regulates the water balance in the body and is necessary for the undisturbed activity of the muscles.

The Portobello, which gives this vegan schnitzel its name, is a full-grown brown mushroom with a hat diameter of 10 to 15 centimetres. Due to the longer growing period and the open hat, it has a "meatier" aroma than its immature little brothers. You can find the mushrooms at the weekly market, at the greengrocer or in a very well sorted supermarket.
