Bulgarian Recipes


People from overseas are not always aware of the foods that Bulgaria has to offer. Bulgarian cuisine is a unique mix of Slavic traditions combined with influences from Greek cuisine and Turkish cuisine.

Popular Bulgarian dishes include:
  • Kiselo Mlyako - Yoghurt

  • Tarator - A cold (often served with ice) soup made from yoghurt, cucumbers, nuts, vegetable oil and water, and flavored with garlic and dill.

  • Shkembe chorba - A soup made from the stomach lining of cattle, mixed with milk, and seasoned with vinegar, garlic, and chili. The soup is sometimes claimed to be a hangover cure.

  • Elenski but - Dry-cured ham from the town of Elena in northern Bulgaria.

  • Soujouk - A spicy sausage made from ground beef. Soujouk is cooked in its own fat (without oil) and sometimes eaten for breakfast.

  • Lukanka - A spicy sausage made from pork or veal, traditionally in a dried cow's intestine, and hung to dry. Once dried, the sausage is pressed to flatten it. Once prepared, the sausage may be covered in a white fungus, which is removed before eating. Lukanka is served cold, cut into finely slices.

  • Shopska salad - A salad made with tomatoes, onions and cucumbers, and either raw or roasted peppers, and then covered with a layer of grated sirene (a salty white cheese that is unique to Bulgaria and Macedonia).

  • Lyutika - A mixture of vegetables (roasted peppers, onions and tomatoes), crushed and flavored with garlic or parsley. Yoghurt, boiled eggs, cooked chicken breasts, or sirene (white salty cheese) are sometimes added to the mixture.

  • Banitsa - A baked pastry with whisked eggs and sirene (white salty cheese).

  • Popara - Dry bread cooked with tea, milk or water, with butter, a small amount of sugar, and sirene (salty white cheese) or kajmak (similar to clotted cream).

  • Gyuvetch - A casserole made using beef, peppers, onions, aubergine, okra and tomatoes.

  • Sarma - A leaf-roll filled with minced meat, onions and rice.

    Sarma

  • Tsarska turshiya - A mixture of pickled vegetables, containing carrots, cauliflower, celery and red peppers.

  • Selska turshiya - Another mix of pickled vegetables. This one is made using cabbage, carrots, cauliflower, celery, green peppers and green tomatoes.

  • Garash - A walnut cake, frosted with cream and bitter chocolate, then covered with chocolate icing.

    Garash

  • Kozunak - Sweet bread with milk, butter, sugar, eggs, raisins and lemon zest.
