Omelette with BroccoliAugust 13th, 2016 in Eggs, Main Dishes by Julia Volhina
If you like quiches for breakfast or brunch but don’t want to mess with puff pastry (or trying to cut off some carbs and fat) try this recipe for an omelette with broccoli.
I used fresh broccoli crowns (they are pretty inexpensive and taste great being in season and such), however frozen ones will probably work as well.
Cooking time for the omelette will depend on the size of the pan and amount of ingredients you use. Start testing readiness at 20 mins mark with a wooden toothpick. When omelette is ready, the toothpick should come out clean when stuck into the middle of the omelette.
Amount of ingredients from this recipe will produce 2 portions.
Raw Broccoli and Tomato SaladFebruary 27th, 2016 in Salads by Julia Volhina
This is easy and refreshing tasting salad of few ingredients: all you need is fresh broccoli crown, few tomatoes, onion and some greens.
It is important to use broccoli crown as it is normally more soft and less chewy than more mature pieces.
Raw broccoli and tomato salad pairs well with meat or poultry courses.
Cabbage with Mushrooms and Sour CreamJanuary 16th, 2016 in Main Dishes, No-meat, Sides by Julia Volhina
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.
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.
Cucumber and Dill SaladMay 23rd, 2015 in Salads, Sides by Julia Volhina
This is my recipe for so called Polish Cucumber salad: simple salad with cucumbers, fresh dill and marinated onions.
Marinating onions makes them less bitter and removes most of that onion breath smell therefore this salad is great for parties, cookouts and such.
I am using balsamic vinegar and sour cream as dressing here. If you like, you can replace vinegar with lemon juice, but I somehow like vinegar better.
Rabbit Stew with Mushrooms and Sour CreamFebruary 14th, 2015 in Main Dishes, Rabbit by Julia Volhina
Rabbit meat is considered to be lean and overall healthy meat option. We were cooking rabbits pretty often at home in Ukraine. But here in US I was never lucky enough to see one in store.
This seem had changed recently: both, Whole Foods and Giant Eagle Market District in area where we live, now started carrying young rabbits (I hope it isn’t some kind of trial).
So I couldn’t resist, bought one and decided to share this simple and yet pretty tasty recipe for rabbit stew with mushrooms and sour cream. I hope you like it as much as I do.
Shrimps, Mushroom and Rice SaladJune 21st, 2014 in Salads by Julia Volhina
This isn’t one of the recipes I usually cook, but it kind of puzzled me when I saw a recipe, so I had to try it.
It turned out pretty nice, somewhat unusual taste but quite interesting.
I used shrimps, presented in last week recipe this recipe, but I think store purchased pre-cooked shrimps will work well for it as well.
