Slovak vegetarian food

Slovakia may be a pork lover’s paradise, but vegetarians traveling in Slovakia needn’t worry.There are plenty of meatless options for vegetarians if you only know what to order.  Cabbage, potatoes, and carrots are staples in most dishes, and salads usually consist of tomatoes, cucumber, and onions.  Lunch is considered the main meal of the day, and you are always presented with a delicious soup to start.

Bryndzové Halušky [ brin-dzo-ve ha-lush-ky]: This is one of the national dishes of Slovakia, and is essentially potato dumplings with a delicious white sheep cheese sauce topped with chive.  It’s not so difficult to make, so we suggest finding it in our recipes and try it.  If you’re ordering from a restaurant, make sure to request this sans bacon.

Lokše [lok-shay]: thin pancakes made from potato dough.  They resemble a crepe, but taste more like a tortilla.  After cooking the pancake in an UNGREASED frying pan, you can fill it with sauerkraut (cabbage) or cheese.  Sweet fillings, like jam or poppy seeds, can also be used, but salty version is definitely the more traditional way.
