  • Leipzig Vegetables (Leipziger Allerlei)
    3 carrots, thinly sliced
    2-3 medium kohlrabi, peeled and cut into thin strips
    1/2 head cauliflower, cut into florets
    1/2 lb (225 g) asparagus, cut into 2-inch (5 cm) pieces
    1 cup (250 ml) fresh or frozen green peas
    4 Tbs (60 ml) butter
    3 Tbs (45 ml) all-purpose flour
    1 onion, chopped
    1/2 lb (225 g) mushrooms, sliced
    Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
    Chopped parsley for garnish
    Cook the carrots, kohlrabi, cauliflower, asparagus, and peas individually in about 3 cups (750 ml) of boiling salted water. As each is done, transfer to a bowl using a slotted spoon, reserving
    the water which will be used to make the sauce - the vegetables may all be transferred to the same bowl. Heat the butter in a pot large enough to hold all the vegetables over moderate heat. Stir in the flour and cook, stirring frequently, until it turns a deep chocolate brown.

  • Add the onion and mushrooms and cook until the onions are tender but not brown, about 5 minutes. Add 1 cup
    (250 ml) of the cooking liquid and bring to a boil, stirring frequently, adding a little more liquid if necessary to make a thick, smooth sauce. Add the reserved vegetables, salt, and pepper and heat through. Garnish with chopped parsley. Serves 4 to 6.
