Lemon-Roasted Potatoes with Bay Leaves from Vegetable Harvest: Vegetables at the Center of the Plate

Excellent, although I do wonder about the serving size. Two pounds is about 900g, which Wells thinks will serve 8. Those would be very dainty servings. I usually count 400-500g to serve two, and did tonight.... read more >

Cauliflower Paprikash : page 202

The book's spine is broken at this page. The paprikash is good, but this is where we learned to love spaetzle.

My cauliflower bits usually take close to 15min to cook (rather than 5-7 as advertized). Maybe I cut them too big, but they're more or less bite-sized to us.

Spätzle : page 203

This recipe is where I learned to love spätzle. A halved version of this recipe is in my "handy book" of frequently used recipes. I sometimes use it as a startchy side for other dishes.

Very easy to assemble. It takes just a minute or two to put together (measure and stir) at the start of cooking, and is improved by sitting around waiting its turn. Probably you could even make it in the morning for the evening meal (like crêpe batter), but I never bother.

Since we both like this, Santa once brought me a spaetzle gadget, since I don't seem to have a colander that works quite right and hand-cutting is not too much fun. My gadget looks kind of like a large-holed flat grater that has a curved groove on one end to sit comfortably on the edge of my Dutch oven. (I'm not really a gadget person, but this one gets used frequently.)
