The 8 Tastiest Ukrainian Dishes

4. Holubtsi

Holubtsi
is a traditional Ukrainian dish that’s very popular and is often
served during the Christmas holidays, but they’re not limited to
just the holiday season. You can make these whenever but they are
more popular during the winter month. They’re basically cabbage
rolls with rice and meat filling. But during the lent they’re made
without meat, instead, the filling consists of rice, carrots, and
onions.

5. Kholodets

Kholodets
is one of the weirder dishes that foreigners might encounter. It can
be made from various types of meat. Sometimes it’s made with veal,
sometimes pork, but the most common kind is made with chicken or
specifically rooster. The idea is to boil the meat with bones, onion,
pieces of carrot and spices to create a really potent broth. The meat
is then separated from the bones and placed in a bowl along with
boiled pieces of carrot and then covered with a broth. The bowl is
then left in a cool (but not freezing) place to cool down and broth
solidifies into jelly. If you’ve never tried anything like it —
Ukraine is definitely the place to give kholodets a try.

6. Banosh

Banosh
is a dish specific to the very western part of Ukraine. It’s a
cornmeal porridge that’s cooked in milk or cream rather than water
and is always served with cheese made from sheep’s milk and bits of
bacon. Traditional banosh is meant to be cooked in a big cauldron on
an open fire outside and only stirred with a wooden spoon. Every
family has their own preferred recipe of banosh and they’re always
very proud of it and guard that secret recipe because they believe
it’s the most delicious one.
