Give me some more – or for short “S’mores” – is in Tartform today! A powerful dessert for real sweetmouths!

In the US, “S’mores” is a sweet made from a piece of chocolate and a marshmallow sandwiched between two Graham crackers. Everything together is then grilled over the fire. Our Tart consists of a wholegrain beef loden; We interpreted the chocolate with a ganache and topped it with a kind of marshmallow paste. For a bit of campfire, the Flambierbrenner provides, with which the mass is browned. The exact instructions are in the video tutorial!




Falafel – who does not love them, the crispy balls in the flatbread. We’ll compete with your local snack today and show you how to make the fried chick-pea balls at home.

The only problem with falafel is not to plaster all at once and not to forget the chickpeas the day before. This step is essential for the recipe. Otherwise, the preparation is much easier than most think. In addition to the classic flat bread, we have tried through several side dishes and the best Serviervorschläge also included in the recipe. In our opinion indispensable to falafel: tahini and chutney. And of course our home-made lean quark and lemon sauce. If you like the whole thing a bit lower in carbohydrates, leave the pita bread and wrap the golden brown balls in lettuce leaves instead.

Roasted Almonds

Did you know that roast almonds are super easy to make at home? Whether homemade or as a gift – “Brönnti Mandle” are simply the hit!

Sugar, water and of course almonds form the basis of roasted almonds. Because the winter and soon the Advent season is coming up, this version tastes of cinnamon and orange. 
Anyone who is already breaking their heads over Christmas gifts might find some inspiration here: Fill the finished almonds in a lockable container, provide them with a string and a name tag and you’ll have your own personal present.

By the way, the treat stays airtight at least 3-4 weeks.


  • 200 g whole almonds with shell
  • 150 g of sugar
  • 80 ml of water
  • Zest of an orange
  • 1.5 teaspoons cinnamon


  1. Lay out a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Put all the ingredients together in a frying pan and bring to a medium boil while stirring constantly until the sugar has completely dried.
  3. Slowly caramelise the sandy sugar with sporadic stirring so that the almonds are covered with the melted sugar.
  4. Empty the roasted almonds on the baking paper and allow to cool.

Preparation time: approx. 30 minutes

Tofu Balls

Spaghetti with Mushroom Tofu Balls

Boring plate? Insipid? Not at all! Because boring tofu cutlets are now a thing of the past: in this year’s Veganuary recipe number two, the soy product is transformed into vegetable meatballs.

Sure, mushroom tofu balls don’t taste like meat. However, the goal of vegan dishes is often not to mimic 1: 1 animal products in terms of taste, but to offer a tasty and nutritious alternative. Smoked tofu gives the balls an interesting aroma already as a base, while mushrooms and nuts bring more flavor and variety to the texture. Serve the balls with spaghetti and tomato sauce.

The balls are great if enjoyed freshly prepared, but they can also be shaped and stored in the fridge for up to three days before frying. The sauce will keep even longer in an airtight container and also lends itself well to being frozen.

Ingredients for 4 servings

Tomato sauce

  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, finely chopped
  • 2 small cloves of garlic, pressed
  • 1 can (approx. 280 g) of chopped peeled tomatoes

  3. Once the spaghetti has been drained, put it back in the pan with about ¼ of the sauce and 3-5 tablespoons of the pasta water and mix well.
