This is a surprisingly flavorful Polish dish with simple ingredients called Lazanki. Some say that Bona Sforza, the Polish Queen from Italy, helped introduce this cabbage and noodles recipe to Poland in the 1500s. Most Polish recipes require meat in their Lazanki, but Lazanki can easily be served vegetarian, as it is often served on Christmas Eve for the Wigilia feast.
Enjoy this gluten-free Polish Almond Soup recipe that is made with nourishing, sweet almonds. Zupa migdalowa (Almond Soup) is a traditional part of the Polish Christmas Eve dinner, called Wigilia, where it is served at either the beginning of the meal or after the fish entree. (For Christmas eve, the soup is typically not served with an egg yolk.)
Most Polish turkey recipes are just butter, salt, and pepper. But there are a few adventurous Polish chefs (like us) that like to mix it up.
