Recipes for MoFo 8 Gesundheit Blog

Here are the recipes as promised from yesterday's Gesundheit post.
Thank you all for your well wishes. I am feeling so much better today. Your good thoughts helped.

Warm German Fest Potato Salad

2 pounds potatoes (I mixed Red with Yukon)
5 slices maple flavored tempeh
1 small onion diced
2 Bubbie's pickles diced
2 celery stalks diced
1/2 C veggie broth
1/2 packet of Stevia
1 T  mustard
2 tsp paprika
1/4 C apple cider vinegar
sea salt
 a few sprigs of parsley chopped

Place potatoes in a big pot and cover with cold water. Salt and cover with a lid and bring to a boil. Uncover and reduce heat to a simmer until potatoes are tender. About 20-25 minutes. You can check their tenderness by poking them with a fork.
Drain and set aside until you can handle the heat. You can do it! Cut into bite size pieces.
Cook tempeh in sprayed fry pan for about 4 minutes each side, remove. Spray pan again and add diced onion. Cook for about 8 minutes. Add broth, vinegar, Stevia, mustard, sea salt. Bring to a boil.
Place bite size potatoes in bowl add cooked tempeh, celery, and pickle, then toss with dressing.

Sprinkle with parsley.

Apple and Horseradish Creme (based on recipe from Joy Of Cooking)
1/4 C grated horseradish
1/3 C diced pippin apple
juice of 1 lemon
1/2 packet Stevia
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/4 C plain vegan yogurt
Stir first 5 ingredients together in bowl. Add yogurt stir. This was the perfect accompaniment to our tofurky sausages.
Wishing you all good health :)
See you later today with a "Training Tuesday" post. 


  1. How do you say yum in German? That looks great. Glad you are feeling better!

  2. I really want to make that potato salad! I'm a sucker for anything with with potatoes!

    1. If you go for it, let me know how you like it Kylie.

  3. The horseradish creme sounds intriguing, though I'm pretty sure if I try it I'll have to have an equal amount of antacids on the side.

  4. Hi Laura- I actually cut down on the horseradish, it initially called for 1/3 C, I thought this was perfect so it might not be that strong for you.

  5. I am really craving potato salad! I don't like horseradish, but I'd be willing to give it a try for this. Are those veggie sausages glutenous? I hope not as I'd really like one!!

    1. Oh there is no horse radish in the potato salad so you're good to go, VeggieAmanda, unfortunately the tofurky is glutenous :(

  6. German potato salad is my favorite kind. Did you make the horseradish creme to clear out the sinuses? Hope it worked.

  7. Is it? I don't think I ever had it before. I thoiught the horseradish would clear out my sinuses but it just made me sneeze more. It was quite good though.
    Thank you, Andrea, I am feeling much better today.

  8. Fancy potatoes! Glad you're feeling better.

    1. fancy shmancy potatoes ;) Thanx, much Panda.

  9. I'm glad I noticed that you were the preceding commenter on the last two blogs I commented on! I hadn't seen your blog before, and this looks great. Glad to see allergies couldn't keep you down.

    1. Awww, thanx Candy Beans. We were both commenting on the same blogs how cool is that.

  10. Glad to know you are feeling better.

    That horseradish creme sounds awesome!! Does it taste like Wasabi?

  11. That looks like a killer salad, GiGi! Prefect for this time of year (or that time of year?)
