Recipe: Kartoffelknödel

I’m a fan of potato recipes and I find these Kartoffelknödel (literally “potato balls”) to be both really fun to eat and extremely easy to make. They’re kind of bland on their own but they go exceptionally well with any type of cream sauce (in the picture it is a mushroom cream sauce) or alongside a very gravy-laden meat meal and they might even be fun to put in a thick cheese soup for some texture and chew.

Menu: April Snow Showers

Here’s my menu for this week. Just as a note I usually make all or almost all of everything listed on a given menu though I tend to eat things out of order (sometimes you’re just not in the mood for something or you don’t want to cook a complex dish on the weekend like you thought you would). You can always see how I did on Friday’s when I post my weekly lunch compilation on @mabmadefood. As usual this menu only has lunches and dinners because we always eat the same breakfast.

Recipe: Lasagna Soup

I love lasagna as much as the next person but it is a production. Sometimes you just don’t want to put in the effort but you still want something that is vaguely lasagna-like and this fits the bill really well. You don’t have to use ground meat (I used ground chicken) but if you skip it I’d definitely add some lentils just to round out the soup. Also the original recipe had a genuinely distressing amount of cheese and I’ve cut that down to about 1/3 in this version and I couldn’t imagine adding more but you do you.

Recipe: Chocolate Brownies

These brownies are a super simple single bowl recipe. I halved the original recipe to make a small batch (about 4-6 brownies depending how large you want to cut them). If you decide to make these for a special occasion you can top them with some melted chocolate and crushed dried raspberries but it’s completely optional as they’re great on their own. Make sure to let them cool completely before eating otherwise the texture will be a little gooey.

Recipe: Vegetable Green Curry

This is probably one of the more interesting recipes I’ve made in a while because it’s not only 100% vegan but it also uses coconut milk as the fat that you cook off the vegetables in. I supposed you can just use coconut oil if you want to make it even faster but since I already use green curry paste (because I don’t really have access to any of the fresh ingredients) this recipe is already pretty easy.
