Parsnip is out of season in Australia at the moment, so I used white sweet potatoe, and followed the recipe for 7 exactly with intentions of leftovers for the next day. However, there is only 3 of us and the entire pot was consumed in one sitting. Loved it and shall definitely cook it again.

I don't know the English way of spelling it, but in Ukrainian, we call these Vereniki, and I just love them. I also make them with cottage cheese smothered in sour cream, or fried cabbage and tossed in fried onions, served as a main meal. Just happened to have the ingredients for this version and highly recommend it. Its a good recipe to make for children that don't like vegetables.

My mother is Ukrainiane and has taught me to make these, except they call it Vareniky. They take ages to make and five minutes to eat, but are super delicious. They can also be made with cherries and served with thickened cream or ice cream as a dessert. I make them all the time if I have leftover mashed potatoes or cabbage. I would just like to add that many nationalities have pierogies but have different names for them. Ukrainian pierogies are made with yeast and deep fried or baked.

Ukrainian Salat Vinaigrette (Beet Salad)

We had this dish in our home all the time especially in summer. If we had a barbeque with a houseful of guests, we served this dish with herring salat, potatoe salad and a large bowl of tossed salad and at the end of the day nothing was left. Sometimes I had guests ask if they could take home any leftovers. My mother was Ukrainian and dad a German. Yes it takes time to prepare but the results at the end of the day are worth it. My family and I sat at the table cutting up the ingredients, it was also a time for all of us to get together not just during the meal but beforehand. I highly recommend this dish.
