Balkan Ratatouille (Djuveč) is a rich vegetarian dinner dish. Meat lovers are welcome to add grilled chicken or beef on the side. Let this one simmer for a while and then dip in, not with utensils but with bread.
This one is an easy one: creamy cauliflower soup (krem supa od karfiola). Exactly what it sounds like. And it takes thirty-ish minutes or so from start to finish. Eat your veggies, make your mom proud!
Baked pasta with cheese (zapečeni makaroni sa sirom) is another in a series of one-pan, under an hour recipes. Chewy and soft, you get all the necessary ingredients in this one, your carbs and proteins. Just add a salad for some greens.
Lazy apple pie (lijena pita od jabuke) is a three level (crust-filling-crust) dessert. It’s perfect to serve with your favorite tea. For an under-an-hour, few ingredients you already have in the kitchen, kind of dessert, this layered apple pie is quite impressive.
