Vegan curd/quark

If you can’t find one or want to make it yourself.
You put about 700 g of vegetable yogurt (vanilla soybean, for example) in a sieve lined with a cheesecloth and let everything drip overnight / 12 hours. That should give about 500 g of curd.
If you are not vegan, you can also use normal curd cheese.

I use this brand for steam poppy seeds .

Amazing! Almost exactly how I remember it from my childhood in Germany and my friends loved it too. I added cherries just beneath the crumbles, can recommend 🙂
