Meatless Monday

I admire people who go veggie because I really do feel with the poor pigs, chickens and cows, but I love to eat meat. So I thought a meatless Monday would be a compromise! This is our motto today: Meatless Monday! Many thanks too Sabine, who gave me the lovely recipes and prepared the food with me!! I have to admit I was a bit sceptical whether mushroom meatballs would really taste as good as real meatballs (not because I doubt Sabine’s culinary skills!), but they are delicious!!! The little potato fritters are great too! So let’s be veggie today 😉

Mama’s Mushroom Meatballs a là SabineMeatless Monday, Reispfanne 001

Here is what you need:
Common mushrooms
1 Egg
1-2 slices of toasting bread

Clean the mushrooms. Now cut the mushrooms, onion and garlic into very small pieces and fry them in a pan until the liquid is gone and the mushrooms get brown. Season while frying with salt and pepper. Now put the mushroom-mix into a mixing bowl and add 2 tablespoons of quark, 1 egg and stir. Now cut the toasting bread into little pieces and add it to the bowl. Then add the parsley (fresh or frozen) and ca 2 teaspoons of mustard. Stir again. Now purèe it a bit, but not too fine. Finally, you add breadcrumbs until the dough does not stick to the bowl anymore. Form meatballs and fry them in oil.


Mama’s Pilzfrikadellen a là Sabine

1 Ei
1-2 Scheiben Toastbrot

Wasche die Champignions. Nun schneide die Champignons, Zwiebel und die Knoblauchzehe sehr klein, gebe es in eine Pfanne und brate das Gemüse schön an bis die Flüssigkeit verkocht ist. Während des Bratens würze die Champignons mit Salz und Pfeffer. Fülle die gebratenen Pilze zusammen mit ca. 2 EL Quark und einem Ei in eine Schüssel. Nun schneide das Toastbrot sehr klein und füge es zusammen mit Petersilie und etwa 2 TL Senf in die Schüssel. Rühre die Masse gut durch und püriere sie anschließend kurz. Als letztes füge Semmelbrösel hinzu bis die Masse nicht mehr am Schüsselrand klebt. Nun kannst du Buletten formen und sie in Öl anbraten.

I noticed the other day that there are hardly any female TV chefs. There are all these famous men like Jamie Oliver and our German chefs like Biolek, Mälzer or Schuhbeck. But no women. And we talk about equality … Strange! So I was really delighted that my dear Sabine gave me the recipe from Sarah Wiener, one of the few female TV chefs! Cool! 🙂
