We tried it and cooked with freshly harvested ingredients from the region of Wolfenbüttel. Thanks to the kitchen staff of the Jugendgästehaus in Wolfenbüttel that we were allowed to look over their shoulder. And thanks for the Gemüsescheune that we could watch the harvesting. And thanks to the town’s gardener for the nice vegetable patch in the city.
We want to make mangold strudel with a side salad.
So let’s start.
All the ingredients.
Let’s first prepare the strudel dough.
Mix egg, flour and water
And knead it.
Add oil and work it in.
Do another pressure test.
Let the dough rest for at least half an hour.
During that time you can prepare the mangold.
Wash the mangold, dry it and rip the stem out.
Cut the stems.
Cut the leaves.
Peel onions and garlic and cut it.
Sweat the onions and the garlic and add the stems
Cut the cheese into cubes.
Add the cheese to the eggs
Add the mangold leaves to the frying stems and fry them as well
Add the fried mangold to the egg and cheese cream and mix it.
For the salad
Wash the salad and pluck it. Pluck the leaves from the herbs and fry the herbs in oil and add some maple sirup
Grate the carrots and add some lemon peel
Cut an apple into small pieces
Fry the apple with a little bit of sugar and add the carrots
Let the apple and carrots dry on a kitchen paper
Back to the strudle dough
Stretch the strudel dough out. Start with the hands an turn the dough around.
Work on with the rolling pin.
Stretch the dough further over your hand.
Put the dough on a clean dishcloth and stretch it further.
Put some melted butter on it.
Put grounded almonds on it.
Fry some whole mangold leaves shortly in olive oil from both sides.
Put them on the dough.
Add the pressed mangold mixture.
Put egg yolk on the edges
Fold the strudel and roll it with the dishcloth into a firm roll.
Put the strudel into an oiled form, put egg yolk on the top and put the strudel into the oven.
While the strudel is in the oven you can prepare the sauce.
Heat egg yolks in a bain-marie and stirr them with some starch flour, salt and vegetable stock.
Decorate the salad on plates and add the crispy herbs and caramelized apple and carrots
Back to the strudel
Get the strudel out of the oven, cut it and arrange it on a plate
Add some nutmeg whip and decorate it
