Trinxat is a staple Andorran side dish. Trinxat is both delicious and pretty. You can make these as individual servings or as one big hash pancake. The cabbage adds a really nice sweetness to the dish. Typically served in the cold winters, you really can’t go wrong anytime!
I just loved how these came out pressed with a flower cookie cutter and decorated with the bacon and parsley. They were the perfect side dish along side the trout cooked on slate. Andorra is such a tiny country that many people surprisingly have never even heard of. That is what I love about this culinary journey.
