Europeans love serving various home-made sauces with their meats and potatoes.
Even though pasta and rice often accompanies meat dishes, potatoes are most popular.
One of those sauces widely used in Eastern Europe, is a Fresh Dill Cream Sauce, which pairs great with Varenyky, Meatless Holubtsy, Palushky, Kendle, Vegetarian Burgers, etc.
Ukrainians looooove mushrooms. They incorporate mushrooms into numerous every day recipes, but especially for their Christmas Eve 12 course meatless meal.
Traditional Ukrainian Christmas Eve menu will include mushrooms in Mushroom soup, varenyky filling (pierogi), Holubtsi filling (Cabbage Rolls), Vooshka filling (dumplings which accompany Ukrainian Christmas Borscht), mushroom gravy (referred to as, Machka, in some households), mushrooms with cabbage, and of course marinated mushrooms.
