Hello!<br><br>
We're hosting a foreign film/potluck at our house...we choose a movie and then all the fare must be from that movie's country...we're watching an old German movie, so we're looking for some recipes that are easily converted to vegetarian...HELP! Thanks so much!<br><br><br><br>
In Peace, Love and Light,<br><br>

Sounds fun! All I can think of is saurkraut, pumpernickel, cheeses, gingerbread (pfeffernusse - you can buy them ready made very yummy!). I'm sure there's a lot more - good luck!

(*Raises hand*) My Grandparents are German thru and thru. I've grown up making and eating VEGETARIAN German food all my life. What would you like? I prolly have a recipe and can post.<br><br>
Borscht is German - basically a cabbage-beet soup. Usually it has beef broth in it, but obviously that can easily be subbed for vegetable broth.<br><br>
The 'Tofurky' Keilbasa sauteed with some onions and saurkraut is pretty authentic tasting and EVERYONE loves it, even saurkraut haters. (If you want the kraut more mellow, rinse VERY well and add a splash of white wine).<br><br><br><br>
HERE: I'll post my Warm German Potato Salad recipe for now...<br><br><br><br>
5 medium potatoes<br><br>
1/4 cup olive oil<br><br>
1/4 cup cider vinegar<br><br>
1/2 cup water<br><br>
2 Tablespoons sugar<br><br>
1 Tablespoon flour<br><br>
1/2 cup chopped onion<br><br>
1/2 cup chopped celery<br><br>
salt and pepper, to taste<br><br>
vegan bacon bits, optional<br><br>
Directions:<br><br>
Bake potatoes.<br><br><br><br>
While potatoes are cooling, heat oil in skillet over medium heat. Add vinegar and water, and heat to boiling. Stir in sugar and flour, and stir constantly until thickened.<br><br><br><br>
Peel and chop potatoes, and place into serving bowl. Gently stir in celery, onion, salt and pepper.<br><br><br><br>
Pour warm dressing over potato mixture. Sprinkle liberally with vegan bacon bits. Serve warm.<br><br><br><br>
-----------<br><br><br><br>
I also have a Pierogi recipe posted in the recipe section which are more Ukrainian but my German Grammy made them all the time for us.

Hi,<br><br>
I don't have any specific ones to offer, but like anything else you can try "veggie-fying" a recipe. I would think you could do Hot German Potato Salad, spaetzle. There are several ready made veggie-meat substitutes that are the thin, breaded cutlets that are a lot like "wiener schnitzel" that you could make a veggie gravy for. The Germans like a lot of sweet-sour (sauerbraten) foods and I would think you could use the vinegar-sweet combinations to come up with a veggie meat there also. Sauerkraut is good. Hard breads. This conversation is making me curious. I am German in heritage (can you tell <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/blush.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":eek:">) and it has never occurred to me to pursue this specific type of food. I would love it if you would share some of the recipes you make that you like. Let me know how it all turns out.

I went to a german restaurant and they had potato pancakes with applesauce. It was delicious! I'm not sure how to make it though.<br><br><br><br>
I've been thinking of trying to make saurbraten with tempeh but I don't have a recipe for that yet.

Wiener Schnitzel is not a traditional German dish but a traditional Austrian one.

Yes! One of my favs. The way mama used to make them (still does, come to think of it):<br><br><br><br>
6 med. sized potatoes (about 2 lbs.)<br><br>
2 eggs OR your favorite substitute equivalent<br><br>
1/4 c. finely grated onion<br><br>
1/3 c. flour<br><br>
1 tsp. salt<br><br>
Applesauce or sugar or powdered sugar topping.<br><br><br><br>
She uses a fine grater for the potatoes. You want a consistancy between blender and hashbrowns.<br><br><br><br>
Very similar to Latkes, btw.<br><br><br><br><br><br><div class="quote-container"><span>Quote:</span>
