Sauerkraut Filled Varenyky – Suburbangrandma Recipe

Sauerkraut is basically pickled cabbage.  You either like it or hate it…I happen to love using sauerkraut in cooking and baking.

Not all sauerkraut tastes the same, so if you are not a big fan of it, maybe you should try different dishes prepared with this vegetable.

For this recipe I used really tasty sauerkraut….Bavarian style sauerkraut, which I purchased at Shop Rite, my local grocery.

It is so tasty, I can eat it just the way it is…right out of the jar…..has a slightly sweet taste..I highly recommend it.

The Great Lent – Vegetarian Meals

The Great Lent began about two weeks ago, which means that those who follow this tradition, abstain from eating meat at least on Friday of every week, or some even do it on Wednesdays as well.

If you are like me, and are used to having meat at least once or twice per day, preparing meatless meals a couple of times per week might create a challenge.

I have been posting some of my meatless recipes during this past year, so if you are searching for ideas, here are the links to these posts:

Homemade Varenyky/Perogy – Recipe & Technique

One of the most popular dishes in Eastern European cooking is Filled Dumplings, known as: Varenyky or Pyrohy in Ukrainian, and Pierogi in Polish. They are made from homemade pasta dough and filled with varieties of fillings, but potato and cheese filling being the most popular.

It is definitely “labor of love” for those who make them from scratch, as it requires several hours of preparation time, but it is so well worth it.
