Mealtime Monday: Mancare de Post

Yesterday (Sunday, May 5th) marked Orthodox Easter.  The period leading up to Easter is traditionally a period of fasting, during which meat and dairy products are avoided.  A typical vegan dish that might be consumed during this time can be seen above- polenta (mămăligă) with mushroom stew (tocană de ciuperci).  Visitors to Romania can order this type of vegan food- called măncare de post– at any time, not just during Lent.

I sampled these dishes (plus a bean stew too!) at La Mama in Mamaia.  La Mama has a number of locations, mainly in Bucharest.
