Spaetzl is a German egg noodle that is poached in water. It is really great simply tossed in butter or margarine and herbs, but you can also go a bit untraditional and mix with a pesto or other sauces. It can be served with really anything, just like pasta.
- Cook Time
- Prep Time
- 1 cup soy buttermilk (soymilk mixed with 1 tablespoon lemon juice)
- 3 eggs
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon pepper
- 1 1/2 cups flour, more if needed
- 2 tablespoons margarine
- 1 tablespoon finely chopped herbs
- Salt and pepper to taste
1 Boil a large pot of water.
2 Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine milk, eggs, salt and pepper. Once blended, slowly stir in the flour until the mixture becomes a soft batter.
3 Place a colander with large holes over the pot and press small amounts of the batter through the holes directly into the water using a rubber spatula.
4 As the spaetzl rises to the surface of the water, use a slotted spoon to transfer to a serving dish.
5 Mix margarine with your favorite herbs and salt and pepper and mix in with the hot spaetzl.
