In our previous recipe for matevž, we wrote that it is usually served with boiled sauerkraut or sour turnip and pečenica sausage.
A reader asked us how sauerkraut or sour turnip is prepared as a side dish, and this article is a short answer to that question.
1/5kg of sour turnip or sauerkraut
1 tbsp oil
1-2 bay leaves
Water for cooking
Chop the onion and stir fry in oil till it softens. Add sour turnip or sauerkraut, bay leaves and water. Boil for about 30 minutes, take a portion out of the water and serve on a plate while still warm. In case you want your sauerkraut to be less sour, rinse before cooking.
