Although Schnitzel is the most famous Austrian dish, it is not exactly one of my favourites. I like the breadcrumb crust though… Keep this Schnitzel crust and just substitute the meat for mushrooms to make another popular Austrian dish: breaded mushrooms. These mushrooms are usually served with tartar sauce and (like the Schnitzel) with potato salad.
Especially during autumn and winter red cabbage and dumplings made from potatoes are popular dishes in Austria. They are often served as side dish together with roast goose. But in this recipe the dumplings are the main attraction – they are filled with a savoury stuffing of mushrooms and smoked tofu and are served with red cabbage, chestnuts and leek.
