in German recipes we like to use Curd (Quark). But what to do if this is hardly available?
As easy as that: Make your own one. As we trend is anyhow going into the vegan direction I have a good replacement for you:
The only things you need is nuts, flaxseed (preferably as powder) and lemon juice – that’s all. No need to search for curd any more
So here the exact recipe:
50 g nuts (I used cashews, other ones like almonds or macadamia should be also fine), at least 4 hours soaked within water
1 Soup spoon flaxseed powder, 2 hours soaked within 100 ml water
1 Tea spoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
So just take the nuts (without the water), the water with the flaxseed and the lemon juice, mix it for 1 minute and curd is ready for further preparation!
Here a comparison with the the original:
As you might see from the picture I used the whole flaxseed… powder is hardly available in Germany. Therefore it makes sense to use a stronger mixer than I used.. otherwise flaxseed chunks remain and disturb the feeling within your mouth a little bit.
Beside this – the fake curd has a diferent kind of sourish and is a little bit more nuttily (sure, what else) but from my point of view it is a good replacement.
