It is pretty easy to do. All you need to do is to boil and dice chicken, slice celery and add rest of ingredients together.

How to Make Vegetable Broth

September 28th, 2013 in Tips, Advices & How-to by Julia Volhina

Making vegetable broth isn’t such a hard thing to do: get bunch of roots and vegetables, stick them all in a pot and in about 1-1.5h you will get a vegetable broth to use for a soup or another dish which you know what it is made of (unlike a canned one).

Good thing about making vegetable broth yourself is that you can use vegetables left over from other dishes: stems from greens (parsley or dill), stem from white cabbage or stem and leaves from cauliflower, greens from leeks, etc – bits and pieces that you wouldn’t have any use for otherwise.

You can boil fresh vegetables just fine, however the method with roasting vegetables first produce more tasting and colorful broth. If you are looking to get more colorful broth keep inner clean brown layer of onion shell on, using more carrot will help too.

Mussels Steamed with Vegetables in White Wine

February 11th, 2012 in Fish, Main Dish Recipes by Julia Volhina

This not complicated recipe is my first attempt to cook mussels. They turned out juicy and light. Thanks to Hans-Peter and his cooking lessons :)

Vegetables cooked this way, with wine and mussels juices, taste great as well as mussels themselves, serve them all together!

By the way, 1lb-1.5lb of mussels per serving sounds about right, this way amount of ingredients listed in this recipe is enough to feed 2-3 people.

Chicken Salad with Celery and Grapes

August 7th, 2010 in Salad Recipes by Julia Volhina

I never tried fresh celery stems before we got to US. I was more familiar with celery root – it is largely used to prepare soups and stew or even salads of European cousines, but I can’t say eating stem parts of it is as popular in Europe as in US.

According to wikipedia, celery is a source of good low-calorie dietary fibre, which makes it not only tasty (btw I found taste of it fascinating) and also healthy.

Saying all of that, here comes the nice salad recipe for fresh celery stems and boiled white chicken meat; grapes give it a little kick in flavor, as well as almonds. Hope you will like it.
