Spinach Spaettzle in Thermomix

Spaetzle are a little German noodle that is quite easy to make. It is very handy to have a Spaetzle press of course but I have used a colander as well. Traditionally they were made using a wooden board and a wooden knife.  The dough was firmer and you cut them off the board into the boiling water. More work and requires a little expertise to get them even. It is truly worth the effort.  I usually make a huge batch and if I have any leftovers I will freeze them. That is seldom as everyone loves them. 












Ingredients:

100g Emmer (Faro) whole not ground
Grind speed 10/1 minute, set aside in seperate bowl
100g Gruyere cheese
100g Fruiliano cheese
Grind 10 sec/speed 6 and set aside
180g fresh spinach
grind 30 seconds/speed 7
Add Emmer and 250g flour
50g water
4 eggs
pinch of nutmeg, salt and pepper to taste
Mix 10 sec/speed 7

Let dough rest 1/2 hour
Bring salted water to boil
Place batter in spaetzle press and rub back and forth letting spaetzle drop into the water
Skim off and put into colander and let drip
Repeat. Place cooked and drained spaetzle into bowl
Sprinkle with grated cheese and serve alone or as a side dish
YUM!!!!!!!
