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.

Grilled Cheese SandwichSeptember 12th, 2015 in Main Dishes, No-meat by Julia Volhina
I think this recipe is one of these I can call American. I don’t know if it was invented here, but it is sure popular here: it is quick to make and kids love it.
I used cheddar and swiss cheese for my sandwiches, but any other good melting cheese will work as well. As well as other breads. Just experiment with what you like.
Serve grilled cheese sandwich with a side or without.
Cabbage PancakesJuly 4th, 2015 in Main Dishes, No-meat by Julia Volhina
If you have some cabbage sitting in the fridge and you don’t know what to do with it, here is your way out: make cabbage pancakes. They are much like Ukrainian “deruny” but made from cabbage and onions.
My better half is not a big fan of cabbage in general, but he loves these and always asks for seconds.
Cabbage pancakes work great for breakfast or lunch as a dish on its own. But they are not sweet, so I suppose can be served as a side dish as well.
Listed amount of ingredients will produce about 15 pancakes.

Cabbage Baked with EggsDecember 20th, 2014 in Eggs, Main Dishes, No-meat, Sides by Julia Volhina
I don’t know how to call this dish: it is not a cake or pie, but it certainly looks like one; it doesn’t seem to be a casserole, but you can bake it in a casserole pan, it does look similar to quiche, but is not exactly a quiche.
I guess at very least it is an omelette, omelette with cabbage. Yes, I know, an unusual combination, but still pretty tasty.
Cabbage omelette doesn’t require a lot of time to prepare, can be served for breakfast or lunch as a dish on it’s own, but it also can be paired with meats as a side dish.
Roasted Vegetables and Mushrooms with Parmesan SauceSeptember 13th, 2014 in Main Dishes, No-meat, Sides by Julia Volhina
Friend of mine introduced this dish to me few weeks ago and since then I cooked it pretty much every week.
It is pretty easy to do, and it provides a variety of vegetables to the table as it cooks zucchini, asparagus spears and mushrooms in the same time. The batch I usually get will feed about 6 people as a side dish with no leftovers (and I don’t think I ever had any of these left over actually).
It is very important to use portobello mushrooms in this recipe, as they have distinct aroma and taste which gets transferred to vegetables as well.
