Soparnik from Mimice
In the gastronomical offer of Mimice one dish stands out. It is SOPARNIK from Mimice. It is one of traditional dishes of the area that is similar to ‘soparnik’ from Poljica but with a different stuffing. The stuffing is made of Swiss chard, scallions, parsley, dill, fennel, raisins, olive oil, garlic and sugar. ‘Soparnik’ is luscious, and its taste combining the flavors of vegetables, raisins and olive oil is irresistible.
