There really isn't anything better than a schnitzel in my opinion but since most are deep fried, many times they just don't fit into a healthy diet.  Luckily with today's veggie schnitzel recipe we not only can enjoy a delicious schnitzel, we can feel good about it.  Using eggplant and mushrooms as the base and light Panko breadcrumbs, you can make a crispy vegetarian schnitzel right in the oven in about 30 minutes.  This basic recipe would also work great with zucchini, summer squash, or cauliflower steaks.
