German Potato Hummus [MMAZ]

by Sarah on October 21, 2013 · 9 comments

Heather has reinterpreted my Meatless Mondays A-Z recipes at least twice now, so perhaps it was time for me to return the favor?IMG_6356 (1024x683)

As y’all know by now, I don’t really follow the “rules” of MMAZ, and often just make two recipes that may or may not have been inspired by someone else’s creations (online or in restaurants), so I had actually been thinking of making something similar to her Zucchini Tahini Dip when she posted it last week.MMAZoctober2

I had planned to use this week to make a cauliflower dijon hummus, as I cauliflower was one of the veggies I had yet to try to make into hummus,* and I just liked the sound of the pairing of the words cauliflower and dijon.IMG_6302 (1024x684)

*And I have been to many chickpea and veggie weddings, let me tell you.IMG_6323 (1024x683)

But then I’m pretty sure I got an e-mail from Vegetarian Times with a recipe for German Potato Salad, and I started thinking about mustard, and potatoesIMG_6291 (1024x683)

…and the fact that it is October Oktober(fest).IMG_6337 (1024x683)

So what we have here is a “German” Potato Hummus, a little strange perhaps, but you’ll be shocked at just how appetitlich and lecker it is.

(I may need Miss Polka Dot‘s help with these translations. Hopefully I didn’t say anything dirty.)IMG_6342 (1024x683)

I have eaten it the way I normally consume hummus: with raw veggies, on top of salad, or by the spoonful from the food processor.IMG_6375 (1024x683)

But that was only because I didn’t have any pretzels, beer, (vegetarian) bratwurst, or any other stereotypically German food to pair with it. Come to think of it, though, I DO still have (half) a boatload of sauerkraut in my pantry…

Das ist köstlich.IMG_6372 (1024x683)

This looks incredible. Need to make it immediately.

I love you… but I really, really hate potatoes. However, that is a brilliant add for mustard.

This is getting pretty close to an awesome potato soup! I bet it is seriously tasty.

How did you know I was JUST thinking about turning some of the leftovers into soup????


Tricia October 21, 2013 at 5:32 pm

Yummy – this looks so freakin good! I’m a huge fan of german potato salad, so I’m going to have to add this to my list. :)

Your mind…I just don’t get how it works! Seriously woman, what IS your IQ?!?!

“I may need Miss Polka Dot‘s help with these translations. Hopefully I didn’t say anything dirty. <- Hahahaha!

Das klingt wirklich wunderbar und kreativ – wenn ich doch bloß Senf mögen würde …
Not only does the recipe sound great but you did a good job with the translations, too [just one that’s not much in use but that’d be nit-picking around]. But let me know if you need some more dirty vocab 😉 – hey, Heather started it!
