How to Make German Lentil Stew with Spätzle Noodles (Linsen mit Spätzle)

If you have prepared the ingredients needed, now time to start cooking. There are 18 steps you must follow to make German Lentil Stew with Spätzle Noodles (Linsen mit Spätzle) in your home by yourself.

    Step 1
  • Soak lentils overnight and drain. (If you don't have time, bring to a boil from cold water, cook for 2-3 minutes and discard water.)
  • Step 2
  • Cube the carrots and potatoes. Dice the onion and bacon.
  • Step 3
  • In a large pot, heat a little oil and cook the onions and bacon until onions are translucent.
  • Step 4
  • Add carrots, potatoes, lentils and bay leaf to the pot and pour in enough water and/or broth to cover everything. Bring to a boil.
  • Step 5
  • Add red wine and reduce heat to a simmer. Cook about 30 minutes or until soft the lentils are soft.
  • Step 6
  • Add whole sausages and let cook another 5-10 minutes.
  • Step 7
  • Add apple cider vinegar and a little more red wine. Bring to a simmer again and let cook for a few more minutes, or until the stew becomes thick and porridge-like.
  • Step 8
  • Prepare spätzle batter. (if using packaged noodles, cook according to instructions).
  • Step 9
  • Mix flour, eggs, salt and sparkling water in a bowl. Sparkling water makes the spätzle fluffier, but regular cold water is fine too.
  • Step 10
  • The batter should be somewhat runny but thick enough that it sticks together to some degree.
  • Step 11
  • Time to cook the spätzle (do so in batches if necessary): In a large pot, bring water to a boil and add a spoon full of salt. If you have a spätzle press, press the batter through it into the boiling water.
  • Step 12
  • If you're like me and don't have a spätzle maker, you can use one of these two methods below in step 11 or 12:
  • Step 13
  • Method 1: The cutting board method: Put some of the batter on a cutting board and using a knife, cut and scrape small bits of batter into the boiling water.
  • Step 14
  • Method 2: Use a wide-holed colander or something similar. Press the batter though that so it drops into the boiling water.
  • Step 15
  • The noodles will get fluffy as the cook and float to the top. When the float to the top, remove with a slotted spoon into a colander/strainer.
  • Step 16
  • Immediately dunk the finished noodles into some warm water, which prevents them from sticking together. Drain and divide onto plates.
  • Step 17
  • Spoon over the cooked lentils.
  • Step 18
  • Serve and add a splash more apple cider vinegar, and salt & pepper if you like. The dish should have a nice hint of vinegar taste.
