A recipe from Diana Scholl
Potato goulash with red peppers and soy cutlets
Diana Scholl is an online all-rounder: She has been writing on her blog doandlive since 2014, is a content creator and influencer on Instagram, and above all - a foodie. That's what connects us with the Stuttgart native. In her own print magazine ölsalzessig she combines all her passions and provides us with visually appealing recipes and inspiration for the kitchen.
We asked Diana a few questions about it and she shared her recipe for a delicious potato goulash with red peppers and minced soy. Have fun trying and tasting it. It's worth it!
When did you discover your passion for good food?
Diana: Even as a child, I loved cooking and helping in the kitchen, whether with mom and grandma or when we visited friends and relatives. As soon as I could, I started cooking for my family, trying out new dishes and flavors, and later I was always the one cooking for my friends, and it's still like that today.
Is there one flavor or dish that you always prefer?
Always savory before sweet, always the one with lots of sauce, acid and lots of spice. Preferably spicy, preferably bitter, most preferably all of the above together.
How long have you been cooking vegan?
Since about three or four years ago.
You combine cooking with a lot of visual aesthetics, yet you don't do "too much." Does "for the eye too" have any meaning for you?
Thank you very much - and yes, it does! I want the dishes and foods to look just the way they look, putting them in their full natural beauty in the best light. I work without filters, mostly with natural light, without much decoration and fuss. That's why I like your tablewear so much, it is simply a great canvas for my creations :)
As for the recipe you share the potato goulash from your magazine ÖLSALZESSIG with us. How would you describe the taste experience?
This potato goulash is like a hug for the tummy - super spicy, hearty, warming...don't skimp on the paprika, that's what makes all the character here.
