Borș de burechiușe or borș de burechițe or supă de găluște is a Romanian traditional soup specific from the regional cuisine of Moldavia. Burechiușe or gălușcă also known as urechiușe (little ears) is a dough in the shape of a ravioli-like square which is filled with mushrooms such as boletus edulis, and sealed around its edges and then tossed and subsequently boiled in a ciorbă.[1] The borș de burechiușe are traditionally eaten in the last day of fasting at the time of the Christmas Eve.[2]

Etymology[edit]

In Moldavia, the word borș is a synonym of the soup called ciorbă.[3] The etymology of burechiușe is not clear. If the burechițe derive their name from the Turkish[4] börek, so at the receiving end of cultural and culinary influences coming from them, or it takes its name from that of the mushroom boletus, burete in its rhotacized Romanian language version, by the pattern of the ravioli, which were named after the Italian name of the turnip with which they were once filled.[5]
