Thai glass noodle soup with meat balls

Thai glass noodle soup

March 13th, 2019 | main dishes

There is nothing better than a warming soup on rainy, cold winter days. Our grandmothers already knew that. This Thai-inspired variant is a nice alternative to the classic vegetable soup with meatballs, called “wedding soup” in the north of Germany. Incidentally, a Thai glass noodle soup always tastes good, even on warm, sunny days…

I always have broth in the freezer, whether on meat, chicken or vegetable basis. That’s why this delicious soup is ready and on the table in no time. Lemongrass, Kaffir lime, coriander and Thai chives give an exotic flavor, fish and soy sauce provide the right spice.

pepper from the grinder
marinate mince with soy sauce and pepper for about 10 minutes

Gratinated sauerkrat rolls February 21st, 2020 | main dishes

Pasta & Sauerkraut – why not?

The sauerkraut classic from Max and Moritz – who doesn’t know it? My recipe for sauerkraut rolls, however, doesn’t have much to do with the hearty, heavy and “typically German” side dish of knuckle and meat loaf. Homemade pasta dough wraps the vitamin-packed sauerkraut – and if you leave out the bacon, it’ll even be vegetarian!
