Our Family Favorites ...

Favorites in our household also include cauliflower, mushrooms, Savoy cabbage, kale, carrots, and sauerkraut. What's especially nice about these recipes is that they can be done year-round since these vegetables are staples at the market.

Since how you cook the vegetables will impact their nutritional value, as well as their texture, appearance, and color, this is always something to consider when preparing them.

So go ahead and try one of these authentic, traditional, modernized, and tasty German vegetable recipes. You'll be adding vitamins and smiles to your dinner table!

There are so many varieties of vegetables to choose from.

A visit to a nearby farmer's market is a great help, because so many farmers are willing to give you ideas of how to cook their produce.

Why not have the kids pick out something at the market and them help them cook it. If they pick it out and cook it, they're likely to want to eat it!

Vegetarian or Vegan?

Eating a vegetarian diet is one of the health alternatives that is becoming more common. Among the best vegetarian recipes are Vegetarian Tomato and Mushroom Gratin, a traditional Auflauf and Baked Squash with Tomatoes. This one is topped with blue cheese for an unusual but delicious taste.

"Sehr Gut, Gerhild!

Your Quick Fix Soups e-book is wonderful. My Swiss wife is going to love the soups that I make for her with your recipes. She already loves my soups, but your e-book will greatly expand the variety

Thank you for making the recipes easy to follow and see with the beautiful photos. The extra tips and options that you give after each recipe are very helpful. Thanks for the printable recipe cards, too!"
