Clam Chowder

Clam Chowder

This is my take on New England Clam Chowder, which I love and always wanted to learn to cook it, and somehow always hesitated.

It appeared not as hard as I thought it would. And it doesn’t take too much time to cook this fragrant and warm soup for a cold winter day. Listed amount of ingredients will produce 3-4 portions.

As many seafoods, it is important to not overcook clams, or they will harden and will become chewy. If you like bigger pieces of clam use chopped clams, minced clams are smaller.

Don’t skip on bacon, it gives the chowder that distinctive smoky taste.

Italian Sausage Soup with Cauliflower

Italian Sausage Soup with Cauliflower

Cauliflower and vegetables soup infused with Italian spices and cream is another creation perfect for cold winter weather: it fills and warms you up.

And that fact that this soup is pretty easy and quick to do if just another reason to try it out.

Fresh chicken broth works perfect here, however good grade boxed broth is a good option too.

Sometimes I use broth from boiling chicken thighs for salads and such, to not waste a good stuff.

If you are looking for more heat use hot Italian sausage instead of mild one or in addition to it.

Boiled Beef Tongue

Boiled Beef Tongue

Boiled beef tongue is one of foods I love from the childhood, I love the taste, and it also is nutritious and easily digestible and is a good source of protein.

Boiled beef tongue is a perfect dish on its own, that is you can serve it with a side. But it can be also used for sandwiches, or be sliced into a salad, or be used in further cooking.

Now, cooking time for beef tongue will vary greatly depending on it size and age. It will be anywhere between 2 and 4 hours. So start testing readiness at about 2 hours mark of boiling.

Broth prepared from cooking beef tongue with vegetables tastes great as well, you can use it for a soup or some other cooking, just discard roots and use fresh ones at that point if needed.

Cabbage and Meat Rissoles (Lazy Cabbage Roll Patties)

EnjoyYourCooking already has recipe for Lazy Cabbage Rolls casserole, this recipe variation uses almost the same ingredients, but in form of cabbage and meat patties baked under tomato and sour cream sauce.

Again, they are much easier and faster to prepare comparing to traditional cabbage rolls (this is why they are called “lazy”), but taste is very similar.

These patties constitute complete meal, but some vegetables or salads can be served along as a side dish.

Liver, Carrot and Egg Salad

Liver, Carrot and Egg Salad

Unusually tasting salad for a celebratory table or if you want to add a bit more liver in your diet (for example to consume more iron or other nutrients it is reach on).

As title says, fried liver is the base of the salad, accompanied by fried carrots and onions and boiled eggs. Probably it is not the lightest of the salads other there, but again, rich in nutrients and pretty filling.

Ingredients of the salad can be cooked and mixed together in advance, store them in the fridge and then add mayo 20-30 mins before serving it.

Chicken Salad with Cucumbers and Korean Style Carrots

Yet another one chicken salad to be added to my list of recipes: tender chicken meat, boiled eggs, tasty cucumbers and spicy carrots prepare in korean style.

This salad will work great as a side or appetizer, or as a lunch meal itself, especially if you need something to take with you. It can be served plain, in a sandwich or in a wrap.

Salad can be dressed with a mix of mayo and sour cream instead of the mayo alone, if you are looking for healthier option.
