Spaetzle is a classic side in German and Austrian cuisines. In this dish, though, it gets the spotlight. Its name translates to “little sparrows”—what the bite-sized, oddly crimped egg noodles were said to resemble, when made by hand. We’re dressing our spaetzle simply with browned butter. And we’re adding plenty of zestiness with chives, red onion and fresh horseradish, complemented by the tart-sweet touch of Granny Smith apple.

Brown Butter Spaetzle with Celeriac, Apple & Fresh Horseradish ingredients
Cook the spaetzle:

Heat a large pot of salted water to boiling on high. Once boiling, add the spaetzle. Cook 12 to 14 minutes, or until tender. Drain thoroughly and set aside in a warm place.

2 Prepare the ingredients:

While the spaetzle cooks, wash and dry the fresh produce. Using a sturdy knife, peel and medium dice the celeriac. Peel and medium dice the apple. Peel the onion and cut into wedges; separate the layers. Using a peeler, remove the yellow rind of the lemon, avoiding the white pith; mince the rind to get 2 teaspoons of zest (or use a zester). Quarter and deseed the lemon. Peel and finely grate the horseradish. Cut the chives into ½-inch pieces.

Cook the celeriac:
3 Cook the celeriac:

While the spaetzle continues to cook, in a large pan, heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the celeriac; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 5 to 7 minutes, or until browned and softened.

In the same pan used to cook the vegetables, heat the butter on medium-high until melted; cook, stirring occasionally, 15 to 30 seconds, or until it foams. Once the foam subsides, continue cooking, stirring occasionally and swirling the pan, 2 to 3 minutes, or until deep golden brown and fragrant. Add the cooked spaetzle; season with salt and pepper to taste. Cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 4 minutes, or until lightly browned. Remove from heat.
