Ukrainian Easter Dinner: Traditional Dishes To Serve

Across the globe, Ukrainian communities mark Easter, known as "Velykden'"or “Великдень” – translated as "The Great Day" as a time of rich traditions, deep spiritual significance, and, of course, delicious food. It is an occasion that brings families together to celebrate the resurrection of Christ in a spirit of unity.

In this article, we'll take a closer look at the traditional dishes to celebrate Ukrainian Easter dinner, offered by Veselka to satisfy your culinary curiosity.

Serve Pierogi with Ukrainian Easter Dinner

Pierogi, the beloved stuffed dumplings originating from Central and Eastern Europe, holds a special place in the heart of Ukrainian culinary tradition.

They come with all kinds of fillings, from hearty potatoes and cheese to delicious meats, and pierogi have made their way into countless Ukrainian homes and restaurants all over the world. At Veselka, our skilled chefs are known to make thousands of these delightful morsels daily, which highlights their popularity among those who enjoy Ukrainian culinary traditions.

Serve Soups with Ukrainian Easter Dinner

Soup is a staple of Ukrainian cuisine that warms the soul and brings comfort to many. 

Ukrainian soups like meat borscht and vegetarian borscht, can serve as an homage to the comforting embrace of family. The flavor of the soup echoes its nutritious ingredients and the heartiness of Ukrainian culture.

Veselka’s selection provides a taste of home, with each spoonful a reminder of the enduring spirit of the Ukrainian people.

Ukrainian Easter Dinner with Meat Stuffed Cabbage

Meat Stuffed Cabbage, or "holubtsi," is a dish that speaks to the heart of Ukrainian culinary traditions. The combination of meat and rice, wrapped in tender cabbage leaves and cooked in a savory tomato sauce or rich mushroom gravy, is both nourishing and mouth-watering.

Chicken Paprikash with Ukrainian Easter Dinner

Chicken Paprikash, a beloved dish across Eastern Europe, finds its unique Ukrainian interpretation with rich, creamy sauces and the warm, smoky flavor of paprika. The addition of tender, boneless chicken and red peppers, all braised in a rich paprika and herb-cream sauce, brings chicken paprikash to a level of comfort food that's hard to surpass.

As delightful to pronounce as it is to eat, serving chicken paprikash at your Easter dinner brings a touch of comfort and the promise of a festive gathering with Veselka's carefully prepared version.

Latkes (Potato Pancakes)

Potato pancake, affectionately termed Latkes, is a side dish that shines. The slightly fried, grated potatoes create crispy edges on the outside and tender on the inside celebrating the rich flavors that define this comfort food. It's one of the dishes where the simplest ingredients come together to create satisfying cravings in the most finger-licking delicious way.

For your Ukrainian Easter dinner menu, Veselka’s potato pancakes will become a cherished favorite.
