Herbal Quark | quick dip or spread

Today I have a tiny recipe for you: herb quark - the way we like it best. Super easy, super tasty and versatile. It tastes equally good with jacket potatoes, baked potatoes or baked potatoes. Also with vegetarian patties, grilled meat or vegetable sticks. A quick, healthy all-round dip, so to speak, which is also simply delicious as a spread. I especially like herbal quark on dark breads like Whole grain bread, Black bread or a powerful one Rye bread... ♥

Herb quark…

The use of chives is particularly typical for herbal quark. But I also find parsley particularly tasty in it. If you like, you can also take chervil, dill, mint or cress. The combination of different herbs is always particularly great. 

As a basis, I like to use a variant made from low-fat quark and Greek yogurt. Quark with a fat content of up to 40 % is of course also possible. The fatter the quark, the more full-bodied and creamier it tastes. This makes the supposedly healthy herbal quark very tasty, but of course also quickly turns into Hüftgold.

Potatoes with quark - the classic par excellence

Potatoes and quark almost belong together - at least in my hometown Berlin. Potatoes and quark with linseed oil are particularly traditional here. The dish once came from Lausitz and is particularly tradition in the Spreewald. There it was also a traditional “poor people” dish. There is a nice saying about this: “What makes the Spreewald strong? Jacket potatoes, linseed oil and quark! "

In the Berlin kitchen, quark, onions, linseed oil and a pinch of salt are often simply mixed and therefore not quite the original variant. Quark with linseed oil and jacket potatoes is also known in other parts of Saxony, Brandenburg and Silesia. The use of linseed oil in dairy products originally served to preserve them.

Personally, I prefer lots of fresh (and preferably not frozen) herbs in the quark. In my family, this herbal quark is especially popular as a delicious sauce or dip with baked potatoes. By the way, we especially like my homemade ones Tzaziki to. On warmer summer days, jacket potatoes with quark are simply great, as a quick and easy dish - the oven can stay off then. Also totally delicious with new potatoes in spring. What is left is simply used up as a spread.

Even if herbal quark is in principle such a small, simple and inconspicuous recipe, there are still umpteen variations and preparation options. How do you like your quark best ...? ♥
