Bigos, also known as ‘Hunter’s Stew,’ is a traditional Polish dish consisting of sauerkraut, fresh cabbage and a smoked Polish sausage known as “kiełbasa” and, occasionally, some other forms of meat. You can find this beloved dish at various Polish events and always made slightly different (depending on who made it) but still enjoyed by the general public.
Our bigos recipe is greatly influenced by that of Samantha’s (our founder’s) aunt who lived in Poland from her mid-teens and into adulthood. It is also influenced by recipes she’s read and those told to her by Polish friends.
We can attest that, although the recipe is different, this vegan bigos smells and tastes like the traditional (non-vegan) bigos and is both nutritious and delicious!
We hope you enjoy our recipe and, if you are Polish, please share the differences between this recipe and yours in the comments section under this post or on our Instagram page.
