Schupfnudeln - Autumn Soulfood

October 25th, 2018 | main dishes

“Schupfnudeln” is a typical German dish. We talk about fingershaped dumplings made of potoatoes. This recipe combines these dumplings with minced meat and apples – very simple. But often the simple dishes are the most popular ones. Especially with children. Same with our stir-fried Schupfnudeln with apples. Our son and daughter have been crazy about this dish since childhood. Apple and horseradish anyhow are a perfect pair, endive salad as a vegetable and a quick horseradish dip provide the freshness kick.

Important in the preparation is to fry the apples for a very short time at the end, otherwise they will fall apart. Then, it still tastes good, but it does not look that nice anymore.

Quinoa Avocado Bowl

In South America, quinoa, also called Inca rice, has been considered one of the most important staple foods for more than 5,000 years. In Europe, this grain has come in fashion only in recent years. Strictly speaking, it is no grain, but is botanically one of the goosefoot plants, is closely related to spinach, chard and beetroot. Anyway, in combination with avocado, cherry tomatoes and corn, we found quinoa very tasty, especially for the meatless days.
