Asparagus and Knödel

Vegetarian cooking can be so easy. I served green asparagus with fried Knödel and green salad topped with a mushroom sauce.

In general, Knödel are used to accompany meat dishes in Germany. Knödel are made of potatoes or bread crumbs. You can buy them ready to cook in little bags. You just drop them in boiling water for 15 minutes.

When the Knödel are cooked I slice them and fry them in olive oil. That makes them crusty on the outside.

For this dish I put the precooked asparagus in the bottom of an oven ready plate, added the fried Knödel slices and put cheese on top. I baked in the oven for 15 minutes at 220°C.
