FFwD: Herb-speckled Spaetzle

French Fridays with Dorie: Herb-speckled Spaetzle

This week’s French Fridays with Dorie recipe is Herb-speckled Spaetzle and it is on epicurious, so even if you don’t have the cookbook, you can still make the recipe.

This was very good. I actually just tried making spaetzle a few weeks ago using a different recipe (buckwheat spaetzel) and while that was good, this was great. I used a colander for making the spaetzle both times, but I wish I had a flat grater, that idea sounds intriguing and a bit easier.

Notes:
1. I made 2/3′s of a recipe and it worked well (with three eggs, it was fairly easy to third — one egg, 3/4 cup flour, three tbsp milk, etc…).
2. I used fat-free milk. Seemed to work fine.
3. I added a handful of chopped spinach leaves when I added the broth and I also grated on a bit of asiago cheese.
4. I used a little whole wheat pastry flour for some of the white flour — 1/2 cup white and 1/4 cup wheat.

Okay, here’s a link to everyone’s awesome spaetzle posts and my photos below. I skipped photos of making the batter, those were kind of boring.

I cooked my spaetzel in two batches — here’s the first one after about a minute or so.

Oh yeah, and I added two cloves of garlic.
