Red wine and vegetable goulash on mashed potatoes with turmeric

Soul food at its finest: tasty vegetables in a velvety red wine sauce, served with golden mashed potatoes with turmeric. An irresistible vegetarian winter dish!

Red wine and vegetable goulash on mashed potatoes with turmeric

The colors alone stimulate the appetite: dark red vegetables – colored by wine and beetroot – and turmeric-yellow mashed potatoes. This is a dish that will probably convince even the last person to have a “veggie day”.

No, I am not a vehement vegetarian. But it’s certainly good to skip meat many days of the week. Very good, and even very important. And so this dish can be a wonderful alternative to a meat goulash. I’m sure everyone will be amazed!

I used a good Merlot for the sauce in this dish. If you want to cook without alcohol, you can replace the red wine with unsweetened elderberry juice.

Spaetzle, freshly prepared December 7th, 2018 | side dishes

Spaetzle homemade – there is nothing better

Spaetzle is a special German pasta. Of course, you can buy dried spaetzle, but I’m afraid they have nothing to do with fresh, home-made ones. Anyone who knows the taste of fresh spaetzle, never wants others again. So fluffy, so juicy, so delicious. Here’s the basic recipe.
