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 It was originally made with home-made German egg noodles and Emmental cheese.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!

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.

Marzipan Donut Raw Vegan

Since I grew up in Germany, I have beautiful memories of eating marzipan in many different forms. Now that I live in Asia, marzipan is not a typical dessert, especially not combined with a donut. This is a short story about the inspiration for this recipe. This Marzipan Donut recipe has brought back all my childhood memories of eating marzipan. I hope it will bring some beautiful memories to you too.

It is chewy and a real marzipan divine experience. All ingredients are raw and vegan, meaning everything is still intact and contains living enzymes and vitamins. This may be the healthiest and quite satisfying version of marzipan donut there is.

With this recipe, you only need a food processor, no molds or dehydrator necessary. Pretty straightforward as I like to keep it.

In addition to my marzipan donut recipe, I have created this Chocolate Donut version. I like to have a variety of flavors and you can never go wrong with chocolate!

I am using coconut syrup for this marzipan donut recipe as it is easily available here in Thailand. It might not be easy to find where you are. Use what you have. Instead, you can use maple syrup, agave, or another sweetener. 

This marzipan donut recipe is pretty straightforward. I usually make a combination of chocolate and marzipan donuts and keep them in the freezer for a minimum of 1 month if it is not already devoured earlier! The longer it sits in the fridge, the better it tastes. 

And don’t forget, the taste and quality of your food are influenced by your energy too. That means if you have loving thoughts and joy while creating, it will be more beneficial for you and your family. It is called food vibration. We cant see it but, we can certainly feel and taste it.
