Spaetzle recipe the vegan way

Have you tried spaetzle before? No? Then prepare yourself for an amazing treat. This easy homemade spaetzle recipe is the only one you’ll ever need and is a great alternative to rice, noodles, or potatoes. It can be made in advance, which makes preparing a meal for the whole family less stressful.

Spaetzle is the German version of Mac & Cheese! It was originally made with home-made German egg noodles and Emmental cheese. This plant-based version doesn’t need an egg, and you can use vegan emmetal cheese made with cashew milk! Head to this page if you are curious to learn how to make vegan cheese from scratch! You’ll be surprised at how easy it is to make vegan cheese while maintaining its authenticity. This Bavarian dish is special enough for an Oktoberfest party but so easy that you can make it every day.

The easiest way to make them at home is by using a spaetzle maker or a board with big holes to press the dough into the boiling water. There are numerous options, and even if you’ve never used one before, it’s extremely simple to use!

Vegan Spaetzle Recipe

Course Main Course
Cuisine german
Servings 4

Ingredients
  

  • 210 g spelt flour
  • 40 g chickpea flour
  • 240 g water

For the cheese spaetzle

  • 1 Tbsp vegan butter or oil
  • 1 medium size onion sliced
  • 250 g spaetzle
  • 30 g dried tomatoes soaked in water overnight
  • 150 g plant-based milk I used coconut milk
  • 80 g vegan emmental cheese grated
  • 50 g vegan chashewrella cheese
  • 1 tsp kala namak salt optional, you can also use sea salt

Instructions
 

  • Place the flour in a bowl and add the water. Use a wooden spoon to stir the batter until smooth. The batter should be wet, so it can drip through. Set aside for 30min.
  • In a large pot pour about 2l water and bring to a boil. Turn down the heat to simmer.
  • Place your spaetzle maker on top of the pot and pour about half of the batter into the sliding box. Slide it carefully and slowly from side to side so that the spaetzle will drop into the simmering water. Repeat with the remaining batter. 
  • After one or two minutes the dumplings will float to the top and you can transfer them to a colander.

To make the cheese spaetzle

  • In a pan add the butter and onion and cook until translucent.
  • Add the dried tomatoes and spaetzle and toss to combine. Season with kala namak salt.
  • Add the milk and drizzle your favorite cheese on top of the spaetzle. I used vegan emmental and cashewrella cheese. Cook and toss to combine until melted.
  • Garnish with fresh herbs.

Notes

I think the cheese spaetzle is even tastier after a little cooling off since the cheese gets more tasty and stretchy.

Jackfruit Massaman Curry Plant-Based

RECIPES, Savory Food | 08/09/2022 | By

JACKFRUIT MASSAMAN CURRY made easy!

My plant-based version of Massaman curry is just as flavorful and aromatic as the traditional dish. It pairs well with rice, quinoa, noodles, or low-carb cauliflower or zucchini noodles. It is nutty, savory, fresh from the lime juice, and soothing. You can adjust the level of spice. There are several plant-based options for Massaman curry paste available in asian shops or online stores. As always I like to keep things simple so this recipe requires only 10 ingredients

 

If you have never used jackfruit, this is the perfect recipe to try. Nowadays, you may get canned jackfruit at Asian stores or your neighborhood supermarket. The jackfruit adds a stringy, thick, chewy texture, absorbing the flavors of the rich, creamy sauce. This Jackfruit Massaman curry is simply phenomenal, and even fussy eaters will love it! The flavor is rich and savory, with a perfect amount of spice. I have marinated my jackfruit in soy sauce, apple cider vinegar, maple syrup, and liquid smoke overnight. This is optional but can elevate your dish to a whole new level!

 

You may use a variety of vegetables, making it quite flexible.

Veggies: mini corn, broccoli, green beans, red bell peppers, zucchini, bamboo shoots, baby corn, cauliflower.

Plant-based meat substitute: tofu, tempeh, seitan, jackfruit

Storing Instructions: For best results, store curry in an air-tight food container. It will last up to 5 days and up to 4 weeks in the freezer. When frozen thaw overnight in the refrigerator and reheat on the stove.

Kimchi Cucumber Recipe under 30 Minutes!

Cucumber Kimchi are very easy and great to prepare ahead of time plus they make a super delicious crunchy side dish for any type of meal for lunch or dinner. No need to ferment these cucumbers before you can eat them! This is an under 30 minute Cucumber Kimchi Recipe that’s fizzy and pungent just like the real thing!

 

This fresh cucumber kimchi recipe will get you covered with a bright red, savory, pungent kimchi that’s so good you will want to eat it all the time!

The Korean chili flakes appear to be quite spicy, however in my experience, they are not as hot as other chili flakes, like the Thai variety, for instance. Gochugaru flakes are considerably less spicy and milder. Because of this, it’s a great option for those like me who don’t like spicy food.

And if you liked this dish, you might also like sauerkraut. Check out my recipe for authentic German sauerkraut. I’ve eaten a lot of sauerkraut in my life as a German, but the best was always handmade.

Can’t wait for you to try these recipes. Love, always. xx

How to make Zucchini Noodles aka Zoodles

Creamy Dreamy vegan Tuna with Zucchini Noodles and fresh Snow Flakes ❄ 🍜 😋🤌

Zoodles are a wonderful pasta substitute made from your favorite garden vegetable. They are nutrient-dense with almost zero carbs—and look at how simple they are to create!

Zoodles are zucchini that have been spiralized, and can therefore be used in the same way as pasta. The possibilities are endless with zucchini noodles plus, zucchini noodles are a fun way to increase the number of vegetables we eat, especially for children. The spiral forms are quite popular with kids (and they also enjoy using the spiralizer to make zucchini noodles!).

Zoodles are typically prepared using a gadget called a “spiralizer,” and there are a host of kitchen gadgets out there designed to get the job done, transforming your zucchini into noodle form in no time. Spiralizers create long noodles allowing you to spin them onto your fork.

The best thing about eating zucchini noodles is that you don’t feel ultra heavy after eating them like you would when you eat pasta. You will feel full – but satisfied. These noodles are perfect for lunch or dinner on those warmer days. It is light and refreshing. If you like the sound of these noodles, you’ll love my Ramen Noodle Soup with Kelp Noodles!

Plus, zoodles also have a subtle taste that makes them easy to mix with just about anything-including Lentil Kofta! Zucchini noodles are low calorie, low carb, and high in fiber. These are incredibly delicious and work in recipes or just tossed in olive oil, garlic, and salt and pepper as comfort food.

Plus, I’ll even give you one of my favorite recipes to make with them so you can get started ASAP! Check out this Tagliatelle Pasta alla Cashew Carbonara to make the perfect, healthy, quick, family meal.

Being healthy is more vital than ever before, especially nowadays. Take care of your body and it will take care of you. The body is a self-healing system, and all we have to do is get out of the way so it can get to work on curing whatever needs healing. One method of getting out of the way without putting more strain on the body is to replace highly processed foods with whole foods as much as possible. It’s a habit that needs to be cultivated on a daily basis. After putting it into practice for a few days, you’ll notice that you’re already feeling more radiant, alive, and present.

I hope this recipe will add excitement and enthusiasm to a lunch or dinner.
