Zucchini Crepes

Zucchini Crepes

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 Spices

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.

Cabbage with Mushrooms and Sour Cream

This dish offers great combination of tastes: cabbage, onions, mushrooms and sour cream braised together and seasoned with fresh dill.

Cabbage braised with mushrooms and sour cream can be served as a side or as no meat course on its own.

Time needed for cooking will vary depending on how soft you like cabbage to be, just check its readiness from time to time.

Grilled Cheese Sandwich

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 Pancakes

Cabbage Pancakes

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.

Scalloped Potatoes with Parmesan

Scalloped Potatoes with Parmesan

Creamy potato and parmesan cheese casserole which can be served as a side or a main dish.

It is pretty easy to do, and can be a great choice if you need to bring something with you to a cookout.

Left overs can be easily stored in fridge and re-heated in microwave.

Cabbage Baked with Eggs

Cabbage Baked with Eggs

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.
