  • Spaetzle Maker


  • 200 g Carrots
  • 2 tbsp Chopped parsley or Chives
  • 250 g Plain Flour

  • Scrape the spaetzle into a pot of boiling salted water.


  • As a vegetarian dish with cheese sauce (heat the cream and melt any kind of cheese cubes in it) and greens.
  • It also goes well with herbed curd sauce: In a pan, steam 1 small onion in a little butter until translucent. Add 250 g of cottage cheese and stir in 100 ml of milk. Season with salt, pepper, a little lemon juice and lemon zest to spice it up. Be careful not to overcook it.  Stir in a bunch of mixed herbs or finely chop wild herbs and mix with the spaetzle.


Carrot spaetzle goes well as a side dish with white meat, or as it is slightly sweeter, try it with a curry.
