German Potatoes with Peas, Carrots, and Corn – Kartoffelgemüse mit Erbsen, Mohrrüben und Mais

Posted on | December 1, 2012 | 4 Comments

Potatoes accompany many German meals. You’ll often find a side of carrots and peas in a creamy sauce on your plate as well. This side of carrots and peas is one of my favourites. It makes a very tasty combination together with potatoes. So it ‘s not surprising that someone thought of a recipe that combines both of these sides in one dish. Not only is it tasty but it is also easy to make and you’ll only end up with only one dirty pan. As a little bonus, you’ll also find some corn added to this dish. 

German Potatoes with Peas, Carrots, and Corn


makes 4 to 6 servings

  • 2 tbsp flour
  • 350 ml / 1 1/2 cups cold water
  • 1 kg / 2.2 lbs medium-sized potatoes
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 400 g / 14 oz carrots
  • 200 g / 7 oz frozen peas
  • 200 g / 7 oz frozen corn
  • salt, pepper
  • 4 tbsp fresh parsley, chopped


Add the flour and the cold water to mason jar or any other jar with a lid. Shake it well to combine the flour and water. Set aside.

Peel the potatoes and rinse them. Cut them lengthwise in half and then crosswise. Heat a large frying pan and melt the butter. Add the potatoes and let them cook in the butter on medium heat for about 2 to 3 minutes. Then reduce the heat and let them cook on low heat for about 5 minutes, occasionally stirring.

In the meantime, cut the carrots into 1 cm (0.4”) thick slices. Add the carrots to the potatoes and let them cook for about 10 minutes on low heat, occasionally stirring.

Shake the flour mix again and add it to the frying pan along with the peas and corn. Stir everything well and bring it to a boil. Then let it simmer on low heat for about 5 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper and add the parsley.

Guten Appetit!

Die Kartoffelstücke hinzufügen und in der Butter bei mittlerer Hitze für 2 bis 3 Minuten anbraten. Dann die Hitze reduzieren und für ungefähr 5 Minuten bei niedriger Hitze braten lassen. Gelegentlich umrühren.

In der Zwischenzeit, die Mohrrüben in 1 cm dicke Scheiben schneiden. Diese dann zu den Kartoffeln geben und sie für gut 10 Minuten bei geringer Hitze mitbraten lassen. Gelegentlich umrühren.
