Fantasy Veggie Dinner Guest - TOPOL

Chaim Topol is an Israeli actor, singer, comedian and author. He is best known for a role he made his own; a role in one of the few musicals which Zelda loves.

Tevye the Dairyman in Fiddler on the Roof is a man struggling to come to terms with social and domestic changes, yet he soon has to deal with much more serious and sinister forces.

This is his best moment:

It is set in ever-turbulent Ukraine, so Zelda hopes he might like to share a dish named after its capital (although it possibly originated in France). 

VEGETARIAN KIEV

2 quorn fillets
2 garlic cloves, peeled and crushed
2tbsp butter, softened
6tbsp panko breadcrumbs
20g parmesan-style cheese, grated very finely
2 eggs
6 tbsp plain flour
1tsp paprika
salt and black pepper

Mix garlic with the softened butter.
Slice each quorn fillet almost (but not all) the way through.
Spread the butter inside each one and then push back together. 
Mix the breadcrumbs with the parmesan-style cheese on one plate.
Mix the flour and paprika on another plate and season.
Whisk the eggs in a wide bowl. 
Dip each quorn fillet in the flour mixture, then the egg, then the breadcrumbs.
Repeat so that each one has been coated twice. 
Chill for at least an hour.
Heat the oil and fry each side for 2-3 minutes until golden. 
Bake at Gas 4 for about 25 minutes.
Serve with veg of choice; here with cauliflower and Parmesan-style Parsnips
