Frequently Asked Questions
Apart from the vegetable pulp, oats and seasonings, you can also add a few other ingredients to the cutlets mixture.
Veggies like broccoli, spinach, mushrooms, zucchini, kale, cabbage, green peas and bell peppers are all great additions to the cutlet mixture.
If you don’t have vegetable pulp, chopped veggies are the next best alternative. You might want to keep the mixture coarse, to enjoy the chunkiness of the veggies in every bite.
If you don’t have oats, you can use flattened rice instead. Just remember to choose the thick variety, as thin flattened rice can end up breaking easily and getting all mushy in the cutlet mixture.
Rolled oats are the best choice for this recipe as opposed to instant oats, simply because instant oats tend to cook much faster, and they can end up getting slightly burnt while the cutlets are cooking.
If the vegetable pulp you’re using has more water content, it might make the mixture for the cutlets too runny. If that’s the case, you can add some more oats or some mashed, boiled potatoes into the mixture.
Remember that if you’re doing this, you’ll also need to adjust the seasoning accordingly.
Your leftover high fiber breakfast cutlets can be transferred to an airtight container and refrigerated for 3-4 days. You can then reheat them in your microwave or in a pan over the stovetop, making sure the heat is low.
