Krautfleckerl – Austrian Noodles with Cabbage

Original Viennese / Austrian Krautfleckerl Recipe, vegan Cabbage with Pasta (Noodles)

Krautfleckerl is a traditional food from Austria which is fortunately unintentionally vegan, if you prepare them without bacon, as Viennese Krautfleckerl should be. They are made out of noodles (Fleckerl pasta) and caramelized cabbage. This typical popular Austrian dish consists of only a few simple ingredients, is easy to make, and very tasty. This dish cannot be compared to regular pasta. Krautfleckerl are very special and at the same time so simple, spicy but also a little sweet.

As a native of Vienna, I grew up with Krautfleckerl and have already tried countless versions. But since a while I don’t eat them in restaurants anymore, because I like my homemade ones best. In this post, I will share my recipe in English with you and show you how you can easily make delicious and best original Viennese Krautfleckerl vegan yourself.

Vegan egg salad is actually an egg salad without eggs, an eggless egg salad. Say what? Yes, you read right.

Chickpeas and noodles (pasta) are two of the four simple ingredients that make a vegan egg. In this post, I will show you what exactly is in vegan egg salad and how to make it.
