1. The Preparation for the Herb Quark
What can you get for your herb curd in the supermarket or weekly market? Here is my list for you with the ingredients and alternatives.
- quark (different fat levels, preferably a higher fat level) or layered cheese or cream cheese or soy quark
- lemon or lemon juice
- fresh herbs: parsley, chives, dill, thyme, chervil, rosemary, lovage, marjoram, oregano, cress
- according to taste and season: fresh wild garlic
- pepper and salt (have you probably already in the house?)
2. Herbal Quark Preparation
A great herb quark lives from the addition and quality of the fresh herbs. Of course you can also use frozen herbs, but I would only recommend this in case of an “emergency”.Fresh herbs are just right for the herb quark. Use garden herbs such as parsley, dill, chives, lovage, marjoram, oregano.
You can even fry the herbs to get a better taste. The deep-fried herbs in the spread have another advantage as an ingredient: The herb curd can be kept in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
Fry the herbs: More taste and longer shelf life!
If necessary, you can add fresh herbs to the bread spread. Thyme and rosemary, for example, are suitable for frying. You can add fresh chives, dill, parsley or cress to the quark.Fried herbs develop a special aroma. This goes excellently with herb quark. Here you can see a crispy fried parsley leaf.
3. Herb Quark as a Side Dish
The right bread? I suggest the wholesome and grainy breads: Black bread, farmer’s bread, grain bread and pumpernickel.
Potatoes: The boiled potatoes taste most delicious to me. But baked potatoes are also delicious.
Meat: Instead of the usual BBQ sauce, this spread goes great with grilled meat.
Vegetables: Our herb quark also goes well with oven vegetables.Herb curd on a farmer’s bread. This bread with herb curd tastes good as a snack, at snack time and at any time of the day. Try the herb curd for breakfast or brunch…
