Bulgarian recipe: Sirene po Shopski

Wednesday, December 14th, 2011

Second recipe posted on this blog, also this time from Bulgaria and again vegetarian. Bulgaria have really high quality of vegetables and other ingredients which makes the food here incredible fresh and tasty. Again, in this recipe there is the Bulgarian white cheese which is not to be found in most other countries (it is not the same as feta cheese).

Sirene po Shopski (2 portions)

400 gram white cheese
150 gram yellow cheese
2 eggs
2 roasted peppers
2 hot peppers
2 tomatoes

Cut the cheese, peppers and tomatoes into eatable size pieces (don’t mix it). Take two Gyuveche pot (earthware pots) and first add a layer of cheese, then the peppers and tomatoes and finally a second layer of cheese. Heat the pots in the oven until the cheese have melted. Add the eggs on top and put the pots back into the oven until the eggs have the consistency that you want. Top with parsley and let cool down for a short while.

Bulgarian recipe: Mish mash

Saturday, December 10th, 2011

This is my first recipe post on this blog. Mish mash is a traditional Bulgarian vegetarian dish that is very easy to prepare. The only problem that you might have is to find something similar to the white cheese found in Bulgaria and very commonly used in food here. The Bulgarian white cheese looks like normal feta cheese but taste different. The recipe should also work with feta cheese or you can skip the cheese.

Mish mash (2-3 portions)

3 tomatoes
3 red peppers
1 yellow onion
3 eggs
150 gram white cheese
salt & pepper

Cut the tomatoes, red peppers, onion, cheese and parsley into eatable size pieces (don’t mix it). Heat the oil in a pan and throw in the chopped onion. After some minute, add the peppers. Stir. Again after some minute, also add the tomatoes. Stir. Cook for 4 minutes and then add the cheese and eggs. Stir. Cook for 3 more minutes (don’t make the eggs to dry) and finally add parsley, salt & pepper on top of the dish. Take the pan off the heat and wait for a short while before serving.

For the Turkish version of this recipe (Menemen), add some chopped spicy salami and hot spices.
