Being German, I love pumpernickel. But not every type will do. I go for the original, around here fairly available:
The Baker - Company's, making organic, moist pumpernickel, just as I used to eat it back in Dresden as a child.
I topped it here with Guacamole, mixed with miso paste for added nutrition, cut some mixed leftover lettuce leaves and decorate it with cherry tomatoes. Drizzle fresh lemon juice and.... voila! A tasty treat!
It's also wonderful with butter and quark, a sour cream like
fermented dairy product, very common in Germany, topped with thinly sliced green onions, hmmm, it's especially delicious.
