Veal Schnitzel

Schnitzel option for SIBO sufferers

‘Crispy veal schnitzel drizzled with lemon juice are so simple yet so utterly delicious, and you wouldn’t know they’re any different to the original version.’ Rebecca Coomes

4 serves

Classification: Phase 1 – Restricted, GF, LF


  • 4 large veal schnitzel steaks
  • 1 free range egg
  • 8 tbs almond meal
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp freshly ground pepper
  • 4 tbs ghee
  • 1 lemon, cut into wedges


Beat the egg in a bowl.  Set aside.  Place the almond meal, salt and pepper on a plate and mix to combine.  Dip each schnitzel into the beaten egg, then cover in the almond mix.  Repeat for all pieces of veal.  Set aside on a separate plate.

Heat a large frying pan over a medium heat.  Melt the ghee and swirl to cover the whole pan.  Place each piece of schnitzel in the pan, and cook for 2 – 3 minutes then turn to cook the other side.

Once the schnitzels are cooked through, remove from the heat and sprinkle with extra salt and serve with lemon wedges.

Note: These work well with a side salad or steamed vegetables.
