Carrots with nut crumble, dill oil and yoghurt

April 28th, 2022 | main dishes

Good old carrot completely different: Carrots cooked al dente are served cold on yoghurt, along with aromatic dill oil and a crumble of hazelnuts, almonds, black sesame seeds and a pinch of cumin. A great performance for our honest carrot!

Carrots with nut crumble, dill oil and yoghurt

This – in the broadest sense – carrot salad can also be perfectly prepared for guests and served, for example, as part of an oriental menu. The crumble is easy to prepare. It stays fresh for at least a week in an airtight container. Incidentally, it also tastes great over ice cream or any other salad. The carrots can also be prepared well in advance, so when the guests arrive, all you have to do is arrange them.

Even on hot summer days, the carrots with nut crumble on yoghurt are absolutely delicious!

The Palatinate: pure pleasure – Part 2

The Palatinate – a region of superlatives! The largest wine barrel in the world, the largest wine festival in the world, the oldest wine route, the oldest wine bottle and last but not least about 100 million vines and fantastic wine… Not to mention Saumagen [stuffed pig’s stomach], liver dumplings and the beautiful landscape…

Wild garlic aioli without egg

I bought the first bunch of wild garlic on the market. You might think it’s finally spring! In our garden, the wild garlic, however, has only dared one to two centimeters to the frosty air. No matter, now begins the delicious wild garlic time, which then merges seamlessly into the culinary at least as great asparagus time. Under the motto “It does not get any greener”, I stirred up a wild garlic aioli for you as a prelude.

Red fruit jelly as with grandma

In July, strawberries, currants, blueberries, blackberries and raspberries abound. The market tables are bending and one would like to buy all of them at once.
