German food today, super easy recipe: it is loosely adapted from the amazing Schupfnudeln by Eat this! I wanted to make them the other day but got distracted, then realised I was too hangry to go through with it and just threw everything into the skillet, didn’t even peel the potatoes .

This was the result. We loved it! And it’s become a staple dish in our kitchen …

A note on fresh sauerkraut: not that stuff in a can from the supermarket, best before 2025, I mean fresh sauerkraut with the bacteria still active. It’s sold in the produce section of organic shops or on weekly markets. You can also easily make it yourself, there are lots of recipes and tutorials online, for example this one. Fermented foods feed your microbiome and help keep you healthy!

Ingredients for the Sauerkraut Skillet

  • 1/2 smoked tofu, cubed
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2-3 cups cooked, cooled potatoes, sliced, peeling is optional
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 cup of fresh sauerkraut
  • parsley

How to make the Sauerkraut Skillet

Roast smoked tofu in olive oil for about 5 minutes, then add onion and potatoes.

Add salt and pepper to taste, and roast for about 10-15 minutes on medium to high heat, stir from time to time.

Switch the heat off.

Add fresh sauerkraut, stir and serve right away. You want the sauerkraut to just get warm, not hot, to keep the good bacteria alive.

Garnish with lots of fresh parsley and enjoy 😋 

I posted a little video on instagram too:

Also very tasty: dill instead of parsley!
