Carrots and Ginger Soup-Puree

Carrots and Ginger Soup-Puree

So I discovered carrots and ginger combination while working on last week recipe. And I decided to take it one step further: today with carrots and ginger soup-puree.

It is spicy, unusual and absolutely delicious. To my surprise even my better half liked it (and he is not too thrilled with either carrots or ginger).

You can use cup blender instead of hand one, if blender cup isn’t big enough to hold whole pot, just work in batches. But I must say hand blender is much easier to use here.

Carrots, Raisins and Ginger Salad

This is refreshing and somewhat spicy salad made with carrots, raisins and ginger.

It tastes great by itself, or with meat or poultry.

You can make salad more or less spicy by adjusting amount of ginger you use: more ginger will make more spicy salad.

Fried Rice with Chicken and Vegetables

This is my first attempt on cooking fried rice, one of the website visitors asked for a recipe and I decided to try some out.

I liked the result, but it is hard for me to judge, since fried rice isn’t very slavic food which I am more used to (main trick is to not overcook rice). If you decided to try it too, please let me know how it turned out for you.

By the way, in this recipe amounts of ginger and soy sauce can be adjusted to your taste.

Baby Back Ribs with Soy Sauce, Ginger and Leeks

In this recipe baby back ribs are first boiled, then fried and then stewed with sauce prepared with leeks, ginger, soy sauce, wine and balsamic vinegar.

It is good way to cook ribs if you don’t have or don’t want to use grill.

Serve ribs warm with side dish of potatoes, pour sauce over ribs.

Baked Peaches with Chocolate and Ginger Stuffing

Baked Peaches with Chocolate and Ginger Stuffing

We bought a big box of peaches on our way back home from vacation in South Carolina ocean side. They were very ripe and sweet and most important they were a lot, much more than we can eat in 2, even for longer time.

Even after eating big portion of them fresh and handing some out, there were still some left. It was a time to cook peaches before they spoil.

I found this recipe for stuffed baked peaches, and must say that baked peaches become one of my favorite desserts – cooked peaches are very tender and flavorful.

I will definitely improvise more in this direction once my hands get ahold of more peaches to try various stuffings.
