This recipe reminds me so much of home. I’m swiss and I grew up in Switzerland. But my dad migrated from Croatia and my mom from Bosnia. This makes me croatian and swiss.
My mom is an amazing cook and made everything from scratch. We would always cook together and she would teach me traditional croatian and bosnian dishes. Meat is a big part of this culture but there are a lot of dishes you can veganize by just not adding meat.
‘Pita’ is a really traditional dish in Bosnia. It’s not the greek bread you know but rather a filo pastry filled with potaoes, meat, spinach you name it. The pita filled with potatoes happens to be vegan, which is amazing. You do not need to change anything.
The following recipe is my moms, which she handed to me. And her mom teached my mom. Each family has a different way of rolling out the dough, or using different ingredients for the filling. I hope you like this version and try it out.
If you do not want to make your own filo pastry, you can just buy it and fill it the same way!
