Sorrel Soup

Sorrel Soup | Latvian cuisine | Scoop.it
Nettle, sorrel and dandelion may be considered as weeds in most parts of the world, but in Latvia all these plants are part of a diet. Every spring, as soon as they appear from the ground, plants are plucked and cooked in soup or added to salads and smoothies for an extra boost of vitamins…

Marinated pumpkin

Marinated pumpkin | Latvian cuisine | Scoop.it
Latvians are in to preserving things. Fruit, vegetables, berries, mushrooms - you name it, we preserve it.  It all relates to winter - it is (literally) freezing cold for 6-7 months of the year and the opportunity to grow and eat fresh produce is quite limited. Preserves in a form of jam, marmalade, marinating, salting,…

Plum cake

Plum cake | Latvian cuisine | Scoop.it
This is a quick and easy cake that everyone will love - it is light and moist and perfect with a cup of tea. This is a spin-off of an apple cake (ābolmaize) but I have found the tartness of plums to work better with the sweetness of the pastry. [amd-zlrecipe-recipe:4]

Latvian cheesecake (biezpienmaize) | Latvian cuisine | Scoop.it
Biezpienmaize, literally cottage cheese bread, is my favourite cake in the world. My fondest cake memories are from the high school, when my friends and I would enjoy breaks between classes in the school cafeteria, sitting down for a sizable piece of biezpienmaize and a cup of peppermint tea. It was also great as a…

Potato salad

Potato salad | Latvian cuisine | Scoop.it
In most parts of the world 'salad' means something light, green and healthy; an entree or a side dish. Salad in Latvia usually is like a meal on its own, available in every deli, supermarket, canteen and bistro. It would usually include potatoes, carrots or rice and would be served with cream and mayo dressing.…

Meatball soup

Meatball soup | Latvian cuisine | Scoop.it
Let's talk soup. Without much exaggeration, Australians only eat pumpkin or pea & ham soup, only in winter and usually both are blended to the consistency of baby food. Latvians, on the other hand, would have tens of soup varieties, eaten all year round and with chunky meat and vegetables in them. When I was…

Bean salad

Bean salad | Latvian cuisine | Scoop.it
Bean salad (pupiņu salāti), in my opinion, is Latvian equivalent of fast food: it is cheap, fast and easy to make, but without the greasy aftertaste. There are several variations of the salad, and the one presented here is a somewhat recent invention due to the use of capsicum and tinned kidney beans. [amd-zlrecipe-recipe:9]
