Alternative to Cheese Spaetzle With Fried Onions

Ingredients (for two people):

250g vegan spaetzle
125g vegan alternative to cheese
2 tablespoons vegan cream cheese
4 tablespoons soy alternative to cream
fresh garden herbs (e.g. parsley or chives)
black pepper, freshly ground
1-2 onions, medium size
1 tablespoon flour
½ teaspoon icing sugar
vegetable oil for frying / baking


200g tofu (almond-nut)


  1. Mix the flour and icing sugar thoroughly in a bowl. Peel the onions and cut into thin rings, then roll in the flour sugar mixture and tap off excess flour. Heat vegetable oil in a pan and fry the onion rings until crispy and brown, then drain on kitchen paper and set aside.

  2. Mix the grated vegan alternative to cheese with the cream cheese altrenative, the vegan alternative to soy cream and freshly chopped garden herbs. Season with freshly ground pepper and salt.

  3. Thoroughly mix cheese mixture with spaetzle and fill everything in a greased baking dish. Bake at 180 °C in a preheated oven for about 20 minutes, until the surface shines golden brown. Garnish with crispy onion rings before serving.

Our tip: If you like it hearty, fry diced tofu until crispy and mix with the other ingredients before baking. Serve with a crispy green salad.
