Eggplant Roast with Vegetables

May 17th, 2014 in Appetizers & Snacks, Main Dish Recipes, No-meat, Side Dish Recipes by Julia Volhina

This is nice looking dish which can be served as either a main entree, a side dish, or an appetizer.

It contains no meat, just eggplant, bell pepper, tomatoes, sour cream and cheese.

Eggplant roasted this way looks festive (and will for sure fit nicely on a holiday table), and it is also pretty easy to do.

One medium size eggplant will produce 2-3 servings.

Creamy Fusilli Pasta with Broccoli and Cheese

April 26th, 2014 in Main Dish Recipes, No-meat, Pasta by Julia Volhina

Easy recipe to do fusilli pasta cooked with cream, broccoli and cheese.

I used italian blend cheese mix, but I think other cheese or cheeses will work as well.

As well as other kind of pasta, fusilli seemed like one of the choices, others will work good too.

Just cook pasta to your liking (or/and according to the package instructions until al dente).

Rice, Milk and Raisins Porridge

April 12th, 2014 in Main Dish Recipes, No-meat by Julia Volhina

This is a breakfast food of my childhood: soft rice porridge cooked with milk and sweet raisins.

Round kinds of rice will probably work better for it, but any white rice will do.

Cook porridge on slow simmer. Don’t forget to stir while cooking, to prevent rice from sticking to the bottom of the pot and burn.

Amount of milk to use for this recipe will vary depending on kind of rice and how liquid you like your porridge to be. I used exactly 2 cups.

Summer Squash Omelette

February 15th, 2014 in Eggs, Main Dish Recipes, No-meat by Julia Volhina

Perfect recipe for breakfast or brunch, especially on a weekend.

Summer squashes or zucchinis or a combination of these will work for this recipe. One or two, depending on their size and size of skillet you use. You will need just enough to form a single layer.

I used italian blend of cheeses, it worked perfectly. Other cheese or combination of cheese to your liking will work as well.

Vegetables with Cream

December 14th, 2013 in No-meat, Side Dish Recipes by Julia Volhina

Vegetables with cream are pretty easy to cook and they make a great side dish for meat or poultry. It can also be served as a no-meat course.

I used carrots, broccoli and cauliflower florets with peas for this recipe, but it will also work good with green beans, zucchini, brussels sprouts, whatever you have on your hands.

The same, you can use either fresh vegetables or frozen ones, or a combination of these. For example, for this recipe I used fresh broccoli and cauliflower with frozen sliced carrots and frozen peas.

Ricotta Cheese Stuffed Pasta

November 30th, 2013 in Main Dish Recipes, No-meat, Pasta by Julia Volhina

This is my first take on stuffed jumbo pasta shells, but I will must say it will not not be last: there are so many stuffings these may work nicely with.

In this recipe pasta is stuffed with five cheeses (ricotta, provolone, mozzarella and romano), fresh parsley and egg mix.

For sauce I tried something new too: that is canned crushed tomatoes, usually I avoid using canned vegetables, but these worked well for sauce and saved me quite some time too.

Pumpkin and Millet Porridge

October 19th, 2013 in Main Dish Recipes, No-meat by Julia Volhina

I think pumpkin porridge (“garbuzova kasha” or “tykvennaja kasha”) is somewhat unusual dish in this part of the globe.

But it is quite popular in slavic world. My grandma always cooked it at fall, with milk and millet and, of course, pumpkin.

Raisins are nice addition to the recipe, all though they are optional, so are walnuts or dried apricots.

Cooking millet may take some time (and liquid). If you need to speed things up a bit, rinse millet seeds in couple of changes of warm water, or even let them soak in water for some time before cooking.
