“Glutenfree Bigos” – East European traditional speciality

"Bigos" is a traditional Polish, Lithuanian and Belarussian dish made of sauerkraut, different meat, mushrooms and plum butter. It is a substantial dish, very simple and cheap and the perfect solution when having many people over and not knowing what to serve. In Poland, Bigos is part of every menu in every restaurant and traditionally served with bread as a starter. For a glutenfree version, abstain from the bread and replace it with potatoes or take the Bigos without any extras. The Polish prepare Bigos in heaps and deep-freeze it partially - since it's sauerkraut it unfolds its taste to the fullest after warming it up again.
