Cabbage Pancakes

July 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.

Fried Meat with Mustard and Eggs

May 9th, 2015 in Beef, Chicken, Main Dishes, Pork by Julia Volhina

The magic of this recipe is in the fact that you can prepare everything for it a day before and then just fry the meat when the time is right.

You can actually store marinated meat in fridge for longer and just fry a portion you need every time you need it, which may save time eventually.

Results may vary depending on the taste of mustard you use. So use the one you like :).

The same goes for peppers – I used a mixture I had on hands: red pepper, black pepper, white pepper, coriander, etc, but you can use whatever you like the most.

Choose softer cut of beef for this recipe, pork or chicken may work too.

Cabbage Baked with Eggs

December 20th, 2014 in Eggs, Main Dishes, No-meat, Side Dish Recipes by Julia Volhina

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.

Chicken, Prunes and Cucumber Salad

July 12th, 2014 in Salads by Julia Volhina

This salad has unusual ingredients combination: prunes, eggs, cucumber, walnuts and chicken, as the title says.

There is no onions or garlic, so it can be served early in the day as well later.

It is also one of few salads in my recipe inventory which does not call for mayo.

Summer Squash Omelette

February 15th, 2014 in Eggs, Main Dishes, No-meat by Julia Volhina

Perfect recipe for breakfast or brunch, especially on a weekend.

Summer squashes or zucchinis or a combination of these will work for this recipe. One or two, depending on their size and size of skillet you use. You will need just enough to form a single layer.

I used italian blend of cheeses, it worked perfectly. Other cheese or combination of cheese to your liking will work as well.

Shrimp, Egg and Potato Layered Salad

February 8th, 2014 in Salads by Julia Volhina

This salad is often referred to as “Shrimps Under Fur Coat” salad, here two shrimp layers are dressed in layer of grated potatoes, eggs, mayo and topped with red caviar.

I know red caviar is not something people here buy and eat all that often, but if you decide to try this salad I suggest to get caviar from the local european or russian store.

This salad need some time to settle down after assembling, so prepare it at least 6 hours prior to serving.

Shrimp, Lettuce and Egg Salad Recipe

January 4th, 2014 in Salads by Julia Volhina

This unusual combination of ingredients yields pretty interesting salad. And it tastes best then prepared right before serving.

Original recipe calls for 10 quail eggs, but I find them somehow hard to find here, so I used 2 chicken eggs as replacement.

Pineapples themselves are optional ingredient, you can skip on them if you wish so, but with them salad tastes more interesting.
