A delicious, gluten-free high protein alternative to breadcrumbs. Flavoured in many varieties to suit crumbing fish, chicken, meat, vegetables and many more.
Breadcrumbs are a kitchen staple in most Australian households, with their wide spectrum of uses and vast versatility. They are often used as a binder, or to add crunch and crispy texture, to different dishes. However, it is often overlooked as an unimportant ingredient. After all, it’s just a breadcrumb, right? Not really! If you are on a strict plant-based diet, you also need to pay attention to your brand of breadcrumbs. While it’s important to make sure they add the right texture to your menu items, you will also need to check the ingredients on the label. Luckily, there are breadcrumbs available today that are gluten-free, vegan, and high in protein as well. With ourprotein crumbs, you can meet your dietary requirements while enjoying the same texture and taste as standard crumbs.
At Coastal Crunch, our protein bread crumbs are a great substitute for standard breadcrumbs. They are gluten-free, protein-rich, and are flavoured in three varieties to suit crumbing fish, chicken, meat, vegetables, and for use in many other dishes.
How to Use Protein Crumbs
Protein crumbs can be used in the preparation of a wide variety of dishes. While you may notice that there is a slight difference in their texture compared to standard crumbs, they basically do the same job. Here are some of the uses of protein crumbs that offer you a healthier cooking alternative.
1. Breaded Meats, Seafood, and Vegetables
This is the simplest way to use protein crumbs. Simply coat your meats, seafood, or vegetables with protein crumbs and fry them in cooking oil. You can also use an air fryer for an even healthier result.
2. Burgers and Meatballs
Because of their texture and softness, protein breadcrumbs allow patties and meatballs to hold moisture while grilling or pan-frying. Whether you’re preparing beef, chicken, or vegetable patties or making a simple recipe of meatballs, you can be sure to get a healthy, juicy, and flavourful end result.
3. Pasta Topping
Do you want to turn good pasta into a great one? Top your Mac n Cheese or Tuna bake with protein crumbs and finish it in the oven for a crispy and delicious dish.
4. Stuffed Meats and Vegetables
Do you have time to prepare something a bit more complicated? Try using your crumbs as stuffing rather than as breading! Upgrade your stuffed meats or vegetables by using protein crumbs with herbs, cheese, and other ingredients, and get a delicious and nutritious product.
Understanding the ingredients you are using in your food is the first step in making a healthy change. While something like bread crumbs might seem so trivial and unworthy of your attention, it could create a huge long-term impact on your health and lifestyle. So, whether you’re vegan crumbing or just looking for a healthier breadcrumb alternative, try the protein crumbs from Coastal Crunch.
