Already familiar with Cooking Carousel? I’ll tell you as objectively as possible: I’ve been a fan since the beginning! Mia Schneider’s (formerly Keller) cooking blog has given me inspiration for many helpless hours in front of the shopping list. I love her e-books and easy to follow recipes.
Her fourth book was recently published: “Become Healthy After Work”. It contains a total of 35 recipes that are quick to prepare, healthy and delicious. In the “One Pot” bonus booklet that came with the e-book, we found this wonderful recipe: Spaetzle and Leek Pan. And of course we asked Mia directly if we could introduce her boyfriend here. Answer: Yes, of course! And there were a few other answers as well.
A short interview with cookbook author and blogger Mia Schneider
Mia, what five ingredients do you always have at home and why?
Good oat milk for my coffee. Chopped tomatoes, because there is hardly any substance that can be used in different ways. Pasta, because I just can’t do without pasta. Natural Yogurt For breakfast, as a salad dressing, to pasta – yogurt is incredibly versatile. Good coconut milk for quick curries, Thai food and soups.
What is your absolute favorite food?
Noodles in all variations. If I could only eat one thing for the rest of my life, it would definitely be pasta. That was our wedding dance song by Dean Martin – it just had to be the pasta reference.
You have two recipes on cooking after work and two on meal preparation. The next cookbook is already planned and what can we expect?
In fact, there are two ideas for new e-books: one on a completely new topic and one that not only makes the end of the day easier, but also the holidays. In the usual quick and easy cooking carousel style, of course.
sounds good! We are definitely looking forward to it. But now to…
Spaetzle and leek pan
Get ready for something: soft spatula, olive oil-roasted peppers and cherry tomatoes in a wonderfully creamy, tomato-based sauce. Sweet! Another small tip: it can also be prepared with other vegetables.
You need this.

1 red pepper
200 grams of cherry tomatoes
1 tbsp olive oil
150 ml vegetable soup
1 tin of chopped tomatoes (400 g)
250g spaetzle (from the fridge)
150 sour cream (optional vegan sour cream)
Salt and pepper
Here’s how it works:
- Clean the link and cut into rings. Clean the peppers and cut them into pieces. Half tomatoes.
- Heat oil in a large pan. Fry the leaves and pepper for 5 minutes. Deglaze with soup and chopped tomatoes. Add spaetzle and cook for 5 minutes.
- Fold in sour cream and tomatoes. To taste with nutmeg, salt and pepper. cheer up.
The cookbook is available as an e-book, along with more information and recipes on Mia’s blog Kochkarussell.
