When the peak of the growing season arrives for Moldovan bell peppers, every city and village smells of fried peppers. I think there’s no Moldovan who can pass by this summer food with indifference. I would classify the smell of fried peppers as one of our traditional smells.
POTATOES WITH GREEN BEANS
Similar to our traditional sarmale [sar’male], stuffed zucchini is made with the same filling but in a different way. I prefer sarmale; however, this dish is for those who don’t like the taste of vine leaves or pickled cabbage: a different recipe for those who seek new flavors. Do you know how delicious a stuffed zucchini with homemade sour cream can be?
This appetizer is particularly delicious when made with sweet and juicy, medium to small seasonal tomatoes. Combined with cheese and spicy garlic, this starter will boost your appetite.
This dish, which literally translates as “little food” is made of chicken meat and stewed carrots, onions, and tomatoes and it ́s served cold.
I must say, this is one of my childhood favorites. Each time my mother cooked the buckwheat and white sauce I rejoiced, as it tasted exactly as the one we had in kindergarten.
My parents raise rabbits as many Moldovans do. It is the most dietetic meat one can eat, but to constantly buy it turns quite expensive. Therefore, many prefer to raise them in their backyards.
