I grew up eating polenta and I never had enough of it. Part of our family tradition was that every Sunday morning we would eat polenta with feta cheese, eggs, country fries, and a tomato sausage sauce. I know it doesn’t sound like breakfast but I would eat this every morning. In Romania polenta (mamaliga) is often used as a substitute for bread. I personally like it warm and mixed with cheese, but many people also eat it cold. For a vegetarian option you can pair the polenta with a tomato onion sauce and serve with pickles. Simply Delicious!
Since fall is here, I thought I would start with a typical fall recipe – Pickled Vegetables (also called Muraturi in Romanian). This is usually paired with a meat dish or a stew.
