Zucchini make a nutritious vegetable side dish, or a yummy casserole, but I came across, and tried, a great new recipe, for Zucchini and Goat Cheese Fritters.
If you like tangy flavored soups, you will love Sorrel Borscht (Shchav). My first experience with tasting this dish was in a Polish restaurant, while visiting my family in Poland. My husband really liked the slightly tangy taste of this soup, so I have been preparing it during the sorrel growing season. The main ingredient is sorrel, of course, a simple herb but not easily found in a grocery store, but rather in a specialty food shop, or a garden (your own or your friend’s).
You can find a ready made Shchav, in the Kosher section at your favorite grocery store, but it’s taste does not measure up to the fresh, home made version. Once you make it at home, you most likely will never want to buy it pre-made.
Verenyky, Pierogi, Perogy, Dumplings, no matter what you call them, you will find them on every Eastern European menu.
This time I used Gluten Free Pizza Crust Whole Grain Mix, and the dumplings turned out awesome.
Today I will share my recipe for Blueberry Filled Varenyky, which are so delicious served with blueberry syrup and whipped cream, or melted unsalted butter mixed with brown sugar and cream.
The Great Lent is here already, at least for the Eastern Rite Catholics, therefore I will share my new meatless recipe for Portobello Veggie Burgers.
These burgers are not only great for lent, but anytime when you feel like taking a break from eating meat.
