A German dish: Maultaschen

Whenever I feel a bit homesick German food helps me the best. What is normal at home is fancy at the other side of the world and  good dish can bring up all the good memories from your childhood.

As I had some time yesterday I finally decided to try some Maultaschen. They are delicious and I promise you won´t be disappointed


For the pasta dough:
300 g of flour
3 eggs
4 spoons of water
1 Spoon of vinegar

For the filling:
2 old bread rolls
200 ml of Milk
1 Onion
200 g of spinach
250 g of mince
2 spoons full of parsley

Mix all the ingredients for the pasta dough together and warp it into some plastic foil for at  least 30 min

Soak the bread rolls in the milk and mash it up

Chop the onion, the spinach and the parsley.  Roast the onion and add the spinach, the bread rolls and the mince. Add the parsley and all the spices

Roll out the dough and cut it into squares

Insert one spoon full of the filling and fold it to triangles. Press the ends together with a  fork.

Boil water in a saucepan and add a stocking cube. I prefer beef. Cook the Maultaschen for approx 10 min and serve them within the soup and fresh parsley.

After cooking them you can also cut them into pieces and grill them in a pan with some scrambled eggs
