Fried Pies with Green Onions and Boiled EggsOctober 21st, 2017 in Eggs, Main Dishes, No-meat by Julia Volhina
These are my favorite fried pies – my grandma used to cook these, and I was always amazed how such simple combination of ingredients can produce such tasty pies.
These are type of russian pies (piroshki or pyrizhky) – dough dumplings stuffed with green onions and hard boiled eggs and then fried on a skillet.
Again, you can use ready-to-go dough, or prepare dough yourself, for this recipe you would need about half of the batch prepare for unsweetened yeast dough.
Fried Pies with Potatoes and MushroomsSeptember 9th, 2017 in Main Dishes, No-meat by Julia Volhina
Another traditional russian dish for these who feel adventurous to make it: fried pies with potatoes and mushrooms (piroshki or pyrizhky).
I don’t think it is hard to do, but it does require some time and can be a nice activity for whole family, since assembling pies will go faster with more hands 🙂

Serve pies warm or cooled down, alone or accompanied by a clear broth or soup.
Chickpea Garam MasalaJune 17th, 2017 in Main Dishes, No-meat, Sides by Julia Volhina
One of the easiest chickpea recipes to make, yet so tasty one. This vegetarian dish will require a little less than 20 mins of cooking.
It can be served on its own, with a bit of bread, or as a side for boiled rice or quinoa.
I think this is one of traditional Indian recipe. Tweak the taste to your liking by adjusting amount of spices or even spices themselves. The recipe calls for garam masala, but a good curry powder will work as well.
I always soak and boil chickpeas myself, drain them before using here (preserve a bit of water they were cooking in). Using canned ones is an option as well, it will certainly be quicker. If going this route, use water at step 10.
Spinach Crustless QuicheApril 8th, 2017 in Eggs, Main Dishes, No-meat by Julia Volhina
It is green and delicious, it is spinach quiche.
Great recipe for weekend breakfast or brunch, when you want to eat something tasty without spending too much time and effort preparing it.
If you prefer quiches baked in crust, it will work too, just bake the crust, pour mixture in and cook according to directions below.
These ingredients will fit in 9-10 inch pan. Depending on how hungry you are, it will feed from 2 to 4 people.
Mushroom CurryDecember 3rd, 2016 in Main Dishes, No-meat by Julia Volhina
Quick and easy no meat mushroom curry. I could probably get away with using curry powder, but for this recipe I used actual mix of spices.
That way I could can play with spiciness and taste a bit every time I cook it.
Mushroom curry tastes great with boiled rice, or boiled barley. I even add it to salads sometimes to spice things up a bit.
It is really pretty fast recipe to cook and very tasty.
Zucchini CrepesAugust 27th, 2016 in Main Dishes, No-meat by Julia Volhina
Savory crepes with no sugar added and lower amount of flour than in traditional crepes due to usage of zucchini pulp – yes, count me in!
Amount of flour specified in the recipe is somewhat approximate. You may end up using more or less depending on how liquid the kefir is.
Generally you don’t want to get batter to thick for crepes to become too thick, but you also don’t want to make it too thin either because it will be hard to turn a crepe over when frying (it may tear).
So if crepe tears when you try to flip it, add a bit flour in before frying next one, or if it turns out too thick – add a bit of kefir to the batter.
Kefir makes crepes very tender, and may be somewhat hard to flip in general, so use smaller frying pan to make the process easier.
Oven Roasted Veggies with Fajita SpicesMay 21st, 2016 in Main Dishes, No-meat, Sides by Julia Volhina
Potatoes, cauliflower, asparagus and onions infused with fajita and some other spices and roasted in the oven is perfect dish on its own if you want more veggies in your diet, or great side dish for meat or chicken entree.
Cooking time for this dish in will vary depending on size of potato and cauliflower pieces. Potato in general will take more time to cook than other vegetables, slice it in smaller pieces and check its readiness with a knife before turning the oven off.
I used virgin olive oil spray here, spraying is a way more convenient than just pouring, it also helps to cut amount of oil to necessary minimum. However pouring oil will work as well.
