Chef Greg Baxtrom’s Spaetzel and Loaf Cake Recipe
Order the Spaetzle at Olmsted. This classic dish features Confit Market Carrots Curry Oil, and Perfect Day’s animal-free milk & egg replacer, where traditional milk and eggs would otherwise be used, creating a creamy and warming plate of food ideal for cold nights. ($22)
750g all purpose flour
114g Perfect Day egg replacer
350g Perfect Day milk (check out our partners, Betterland and Strive, launching soon, to try our animal-free milk)
250g spinach dill puree
HOW TO MAKE:
First you make the puree.
Blanch spinach, dill in boiling water with salt, then strain the excess of water, blend on the vitamix until smooth. Strain to remove any fiber.
For the dough combine all the ingredients on the mixer with hook attached and mix them all until fully combine.
Let the dough rest for 1 hour to relax the gluten.
On a pot of hot water, with a perforated hotel pan, put part of the dough and with the aid of a scraper, making moves going up and down the hotel pan the dough will drip on the hot water. Let it cook for two minutes and remove from the water with a colander/spider.
Drizzle with some olive oil to don’t stick.
On the service pickup at Olmsted, we incorporate a sauce of roasted carrots with vegetable butter, coconut milk, confit carrot obliques, and we finish with lime salt, curry oil, and carrot tops.
