Napa Cabbage and Chicken Salad

Napa Cabbage and Chicken Salad

Napa cabbage is tender and juicy and is generally good choice for salads: doesnโ€™t require any extra work to soften it up.

As any cabbage, it is high on vitamin C, so it is good choice of food for that flu and cold season.

This is also a salad to do if you got some leftover chicken and need to find some use for it: just remove skin and bones.

Any chicken meat will do, I boiled some thighs to prepare this post.

Raw Beets and Cabbage Salad

Raw Beets and Cabbage Salad

Pretty simple yet pretty festive and colorful raw cabbage salad with red beets, greens and a bit of onion dressed with mayo (all though you can go for a sunflower or olive oil for healthier option).

Raw cabbage is packed with vitamins, especially vitamins K and C, but also B6 and folate. And beets high in folate and manganese. A good combination for the winter.

It is also quite filling. So a good choice if you are trying to get some fiber in.

Fried Pies with Green Onions and Boiled Eggs

Fried Pies with Green Onions and Boiled Eggs

These are my favorite fried pies – my grandma used to cook these, and I was always amazed how such simple combination of ingredients can produce such tasty pies.

These are type of russian pies (piroshki or pyrizhky) – dough dumplings stuffed with green onions and hard boiled eggs and then fried on a skillet.

Again, you can use ready-to-go dough, or prepare dough yourself, for this recipe you would need about half of the batch prepare for unsweetened yeast dough.

Mushroom and Chicken Stuffed Pasta

Mushroom and Chicken Stuffed Pasta

It took me awhile to get back to stuffing some pasta shells after first attempt. So second recipe is featuring mushroom, chicken and cheese stuffing with cheese sauce on top.

A little bit heavy (pasta, cream, cheese), but also totally delicious I must say.

Not to hard to do, however will take some time to cook. And since leftovers can be easily reheated, can be great for lunch next day or two.

Pasta shells have tendency to break when cooked, so I usually boil few extra to make sure I have enough.

Salmon and Broccoli Frittata

Salmon and Broccoli Frittata

I am always not sure what the difference is between frittata, omelette or just crustless quiche: all of these have something to do with eggs, some sort of cream, cheese and various fillings.

In this recipe fillings are salmon, broccoli, asparagus and some greens. And today I will call it a frittata ๐Ÿ™‚ And hey, it is full of veggies…

Great recipe for breakfast, lunch or whatever meal time you prefer.

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.

Zucchini and Chicken Casserole

Zucchini and Chicken Casserole

If you have an abundance of zucchini, this is definitely one recipe to try.

For me it stays somewhere on a verge between being a casserole and omelette. It has creamy texture, tons of fiber, nice amount of protein and green festive color ๐Ÿ™‚

Zucchini and Chicken Casserole is a great choice for lunch or dinner, or even breakfast if you prepare it in advance ready for reheating.
