Croatian 101: Vegetable translation cheat sheet
One of the easiest places to start when learning a new language is food.
We’ve created a handy povrće (vegetable) cheat sheet with both the English and Croatian translations. If there is a difference in the Dalmatian dialect, we’ve included that too.
Vegetable Croatian translation cheat sheet
There are some vegetables for which we could not find a pretty icon. That didn’t seem like enough of a reason to leave them out, so we’ve listed their translations below:
- beans – grah
- broad bean – bob
- celery root – celer, Dalmatian: selen
- chickpea – slanutak
- corn salad (lamb’s lettuce) – matovilac
- horseradish – hren
- kale – kelj
- radicchio – radič
