“Kopyta” with onion



This time I will show meal “on demand”:) that was requested by my friend- Vera 🙂

On my dish were: “kopyta” with onion

The first time I introduced it to my international colleagues; I served it with mushroom ragout. This time I had no mushrooms so I made it the way my mother always did.

Ingredients (for 2 people):
– 6 medium potatoes
– 1 cup flour
– 2-3 eggs depending on the size
– 2 onions
– Salt

It looks simple but it’s a bit time consuming…
1. Peel off, cook potatoes (in salty water), drain, mash and cool down.
2. Divide mashed potatoes into 4 parts, put 1 of the 4 parts onto another part (*see the picture, it’s hard to explain*).
3. Add flour to reach the level of “potato pyramid”.
4. Add eggs.
5. Mix all the ingredients into homogenous mass. If the mass is too loose, add some flour.
6. Take part of the mass, roll and cut into 1-2cm slices (dust with flour your work surface to avoid sticking). Do the same with whole mass.
7. Cook in boiling water for 5-7 minutes , drain and top with chopped and fried onion.

Now, the “potatoes pyramid”:

Pork vegetable soup



Yesterday on my dish was pork vegetable soup.
It is very simple, tasty, healthy and nutritious soup. Once you cook it, the whole house will smell with wonderful aroma.

Ingredients (for 1 person):
–          ½ small cup of wild rice
–          A part of pork with bone
–          ½ liter water
–          Vegetables mix (30% paprika- red, yellow, green; 25% tomatoes; 25% mushrooms; 20% onions). I like this mix because paprika gives unforgettable flavour and onion makes it a bit sweet.
–          2tsp. tomato puree
–          1 bay leaf
–          Salt, pepper and herbs (rosemary, thyme, oregano) to taste



  1. Cook rice.
  2. In separate pan cook pork for in half liter of water until meat is tender.
  3. Add vegetables, tomato puree, bay leaf, salt, pepper, herbs and cook for about 15min.
  4. Tear meat from the bone, add to soup.
  5. Discard bay leaves.
  6. Serve:)
