1. Pfannkuchen - Liechtenstein Recipes

Liechtensteiner Pfannkuchen are pancakes filled with compote and then topped with berries. It is a wonderful sweet treat and a lovely ending to our meal. This Liechtenstein recipes would also be fantastic for a breakfast treat as well as dessert. The batter is quick and easy to make. It is easiest to use a ladle to put the batter in the pan, that way you get the same size pancakes to make the layers.

Of course you can use any flavor of compote you like best, I used raspberry preserve. Blueberries and strawberries straight from our International Cuisine garden were used for the topping.

This Liechtenstein recipes is a part of my Global Vegan Challenge where each week I research and develop a recipe from a different country in the world. Many of these recipes are veganized based off their omnivore counterparts. While not all of these Liechtenstein recipes are a one for one what you’ll find in their country, I hope you’ll still find them delicious!

3. Flanken Roast over French String Beans by Kosher

3. Flanken Roast over French String Beans

This flanken roast Liechtenstein recipes is easy, no fail (you almost can’t ruin flanken) and it freezes very well! Simply return to oven until warm. I got it from a friend, who got it from a friend, who got it from a friend… (you know those, right?).

Yes, you can definitely prepare the meat in advance. I would not freeze already cooked string beans, they can become watery. You can use any vegetable you like. It cooks for long enough that any vegetable would work!

4. Liechtensteiner Kasknofle by International Cuisinev

4. Kasknofle - Liechtenstein Recipes

Liechtensteiner Kasknofle is the National Liechtenstein recipe. It is similar to mac and cheese. It is hearty, cheesy and delicious. The noodles are made with flour, water and eggs and pressed through a perforated board. Spaetzel boards are available but you can easily use a colander or a slotted spoon in a pinch.

The dough is then put into a pot of a salted water and when they pop to the surface they are done. The noodle like pasta is mixed with three types of cheeses and mixed together and baked in the oven. This Liechtenstein recipes is then topped with caramelized onions.

I must say this was better than any mac and cheese I have had and fully understand why it is considered their national dish. It is almost always served with applesauce which is how we enjoyed it.

5. Dreikönigskuchen (A Cake for 3 Kings) by Global Table Adventure

5. Dreikönigskuchen (Cake for 3 Kings)

Epiphany. People use the word to say they had a great idea. Like the proverbial lightbulb going off over one’s head. But we’re not going to eat lightbulbs today. Nope. Epiphany is the time of year that Liechtenstein, as well as many other countries around the world, celebrate “little Christmas.”

This national holiday is celebrated on January 6 and is a nod to the late arrival of the 3 kings to the very first Christmas party… after all, they did hike quite a ways to get to Bethlehem.

Calling the Dreikönigskuchen a cake is somewhat a misnomer as it is really more of a sweet roll. You can find it fresh in bakeries all over Liechtenstein. Filled with fresh citrus rind, sweet raisins and bound with the richness of milk and butter, it’s a fantastic treat on a cold winter’s day.

6. Käsknöpfle (Triple Cheese Pasta with Sweet Onion) by Global Table Adventures

6. Käsknöpfle (Triple Cheese Pasta with Sweet Onion)

This week’s Käsknöpfle is … ahem… nothing to sneeze at. This wonderful, cheesy pasta Liechtenstein recipes enjoyed everywhere is like mac and cheese, but all grown up … a meal that has had a few years to explore the world and came back refreshed and refreshing – a great, big bowl of alpine comfort…

The fine folks of Liechtenstein recommend three cheeses… Fontina is creamy and has a bit of tang, Gruyere is salty and a bit drier (a bit reminiscent of Parmesan), and Emmenthalier is like a mild swiss cheese. All three have excellent melting qualities. In a pinch, you can substitute any cheese that melts well.

7. Liechtensteiner Schnitzel by International Cuisine

7. Schnitzel - Liechtenstein Recipes

Liechtensteiner schnitzel is breaded pork or veal cutlets. Their neighbor Austria gets the credit for schnitzel and it is no wonder why schnitzel is loved in Liechtenstein and throughout the world. It is easy to make and simply delicious. What makes the Liechtenstein recipes out of this world, is the little squeeze of lemon. A wonderful main course that we enjoyed immensely with Kasknofle and applesauce.
