Blitva

Blitva created by Mgnbos

This is a very simple Croatian dish. I added garlic and mushrooms to my Blitva. I added the garlic to the onion when it was cooking, then added the mushroom and cooked it until the mushrooms were soft.

directions

  • Wash the chard and chop it up. Wash the potatoes and cut them into quarters.
  • In a medium saucepan, add the potatoes and Swiss Chard and cover with water. Add 1 teaspoons of salt to the water and boil until the potatoes are soft. Around 20 minutes.
  • Reserve 1 cup of the potato water before you drain the potato/chard mixture.
  • Mash up the potato and chard mixture and set aside.
  • In a medium skillet add the olive oil and heat it up. Add the onion until it is lightly browned. Then remove it and add the flour and make a thick paste.
  • Add the one cup of potato water to the skillet and stir until you get a thick gravy.
  • Add the chopped onion that you just sauteed back into the gravy and then add this into the potato chard mixture. Mix it all well. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  • Cover the whole mixture and cook over low heat for 5 minutes then serve.
  • Bon Appetit!

    It was really difficult to choose a star rating for this recipe. We liked it but it is really really bland. I made this with 2 cloves garlic and mushrooms as noted in the introduction and used 3t. flour (flour amount was not listed). I can see how this could be comfort food - I had mine with cheese on top and my husband had it with pork chops. My husband commented that it may be nice to have it again if it was paired with something with a strong flavor of its own.
