Hreczanyki – Patties with Buckwheat

Kresowe kotlety z kasza gryczaną

Hreczanyki – patties with buckwheat and ground meat – are of Ukrainian origins, still after XX century war migration they came to Poland and now they are a popular dish in a region of Bieszczady. I was looking for a dish that links Poland and Ukraine. In this dramatic time I am donating, I am sending clothing and hygiene stuff to people on Ukrainian border, I helped as a volunteer with organization of help, but this is what I decided to do as a cook.

Polish Stuffed Zucchini

I remember when I was 6-8 years old, we were spending vacations on our large garden plot and sleeping in a Summer small house. My father was planting tomatoes & cucumbers for sale and other vegetables for our own use. We had zucchinis, but not eating them while they are small, but waiting them to grow to 2-3 kg each:) Then my Mum was cooking Polish Stuffed Zucchini.

Nowadays it is hard to find these big zucchinis in stores, but when I go to Farmers market, I get them from real farmers, not the sellers that buy in wholesalers and just distribute goods. They cost about 1 USD per kilogram.

Polish Stuffed Zucchini was one of the dishes that my Mum made for our big family those days. It was quite cheap to make: you use minced meat mixed with rice, so you can manage on your own the ratio between them:)
