Creamy Spinach with Eggs

Creamy Spinach with Eggs

Creamy Spinach with Eggs is my goto side dish recipe for baked or grilled salmon.

If you are looking for more ways to add some leafy greens into your diet – this may be a recipe to try.

Fresh spinach with eggs and sour cream cooks in minutes, is packed with nutrients and also tastes great.

By the way spinach volume will reduce significantly while cooking, so don’t get surprised and start with a big bunch.

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 🙂

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

Zucchini Crepes

Zucchini Crepes

Savory crepes with no sugar added and lower amount of flour than in traditional crepes due to usage of zucchini pulp – yes, count me in!

Amount of flour specified in the recipe is somewhat approximate. You may end up using more or less depending on how liquid the kefir is.

Generally you don’t want to get batter to thick for crepes to become too thick, but you also don’t want to make it too thin either because it will be hard to turn a crepe over when frying (it may tear).

So if crepe tears when you try to flip it, add a bit flour in before frying next one, or if it turns out too thick – add a bit of kefir to the batter.

Kefir makes crepes very tender, and may be somewhat hard to flip in general, so use smaller frying pan to make the process easier.

Omelette with Broccoli

Omelette with Broccoli

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.

Cabbage and Meat Rissoles (Lazy Cabbage Roll Patties)

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.

Hrechanyky (Ukrainian Buckwheat Fried Patties)

Hrechanyky (Ukrainian Buckwheat Fried Patties)

There are many recipes in Ukrainian cuisine for Hrechanyky – meat and buckwheat patties.

All of them use some sort of meat (chicken, or pork, or beef, or a combination of these) which is being mixed with boiled buckwheat and some other ingredients; patties are either baked or fried, and then served either plain or with some kind of sauce. So, there are many variations.

In this recipe I used ground chicken, patties are fried and served without any sauce. Simple recipe I would say. If you are grinding chicken meat yourself, you can do it together with onion, that way there is no need to grate it.

Serve hrechanyky warm or cooled down with vegetable side or on a bread bun.

Baked Chicken Patties in Cheese Sauce

Baked Chicken Patties in Cheese Sauce

Interesting and I would say unusual recipe: chopped chicken meat patties baked in garlicky cream cheese sauce. Great choice for romantic or family dinner.

I used chicken thighs meat for this recipe, it seem juicier and tasty to me, but breast meat will work as well. As for cheese, it is italian cheese blend, but if you like something else – it would probably work too.

If meat mince consistency is watery, forming patties may get tricky, just use two spoon to ladle and shape them, otherwise use hands.
