“Djuvec is a rice dish from South-Eastern Europe. There is no standard recipe: According to region you will also find lamb, pork or beef on your plate—this means almost no restriction to cooking creativity! But, there is one thing all recipes have in common, you only need one pot or pan! And you can use vegetable stock for a vegan version.”
