Hello everybody! This weekend I uploaded a new “ZERO WASTE SHOPPING IN CONVENTIONAL GROCERY STORES VIDEO”, and this time it was Netto. The selection of plastic-free goods was not overwhelming, but with some help, I got to a good meal out of it anyway. You can watch the video down below to see how I found the ingredients without any plastic.
I made a salad with lentils, beans and cabbage, rice on the side and deep-fried and battered sweet potato – an idea I got while I was in Brussels and got tempura-fried sweet potato in a sushi roll, can recommend btw.
Cut the sweet potato in pieces of roughly 3 x 3 cm. The pieces will need to be dipped in both a batter and in a breadcrumb/spice mix. Start by making the wet batter by mixing the plant milk (I used oat milk) with flour and your preferred spices ( I used cayenne pepper, onion powder, garlic powder, salt, pepper, paprika, and cumin). Whisk until well-combined with sugar, or beer. Beer is actually great for deep frying batter. For the dry mix, whisk the breadcrumbs with the same spice mix.
Dip the sweet potato pieces in the wet batter, then in the breadcrumbs and repeat once more. Heat the oil to a whopping 180 degrees Celcius. Fry the pieces a few at a time in the oil for roughly 1 minute and let cool on a toweled plate.
