Fried Rice with Chicken and Vegetables

June 15th, 2013 in Chicken, Main Dish Recipes by Julia Volhina

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.

Spring Radish Salad

March 23rd, 2013 in Salad Recipes by Julia Volhina

Another spring-envy salad, probably not as light as one would want, mostly because of mayo. But in this one I wouldn’t suggest to replacing mayo with sour cream or yoghurt.

It doesn’t take much time to prepare, about 15 mins of mostly chopping. Boil eggs in advance, let them cool down till room temperature before adding to the salad.

Prepare this salad right before serving for best taste.

Minced Fish Cutlets with Rice

September 8th, 2012 in Fish, Main Dish Recipes by Julia Volhina

Tender fish cutlets can be prepared of many kinds of fish to your choice (I used tilapia fillets for example).

If fish you are planning on using has bones, they will need to removed before mincing, skin can be kept intact (presuming scales and fins removed as well).

Fish cutlets can be served warm or cooled down, boiled whole potatoes or mash potatoes are good side dish for these, a dash of mayo is a nice addition.

Crab Sticks Salad with Pickled Mushrooms and Apple

November 19th, 2011 in Salad Recipes by Julia Volhina

I didn’t post salad recipes for a while now, so wanted to come up with something special this time.

I chose salad made of surimi crab sticks mixed with tender pickled mushrooms, grated apple, fresh dill and parsley and dressed with ground black pepper and a bit of mayo.

This mix may seem unusual (especially here in US), however it is very popular in post-USSR countries. You can find it under name “Salad Anshlag” in menus.

Some people use boiled mushrooms for this recipe, however I prefer mushrooms pickled following this recipe: they are very easy to do and are less plain than just boiled; but this is a matter of preference.

Tomatoes Stuffed with Fresh Cheese

July 30th, 2011 in Appetizers & Snacks by Julia Volhina

These campari tomatoes stuffed with fresh quark cheese, chopped greens and garlic can be nice addition to any celebration table or a cookout: they look festive, taste good and can be easily eaten with fingers.

If you can’t find quark cheese (sometimes called farmers cheese, or fresh white cheese, or tvorog in russian) it may work with feta cheese, but I like it more with quark.

Seeds and pulp from tomatoes as well as top parts – once removed – are not needed for this recipe. You can discard them, or use in some other dish.

Many kind of stews and soups would only benefit from fresh tomatoes. I used seeds and juice from this batch to marinate a nice ribeye steak.

Crab Sticks Salad with Napa and Cucumber

May 28th, 2011 in Salad Recipes by Julia Volhina

It is time for summer cookouts yet? I bet it is! Who said cookouts should be all meat and bread – add a bit of vegetables and crab sticks :)

Napa gives this salad tender filling; however you can substitute white cabbage for napa – it will work fine, just remember to tenderize shredded cabbage with your hands.

If you use frozen crab sticks, make sure they unfreeze completely and all extra liquid is removed before adding them to the salad.

Omelette with Sour Cream and Cheese

December 25th, 2010 in Eggs, Main Dish Recipes, No-meat by Julia Volhina

Easy to do breakfast for two (or more, if needed) – omelette with sour cream seasoned with shredded cheese, chopped dill and green onions.

This omelette is good as it is, as well it can be used as a base for various stuffing.

This recipe doesn’t require flour (is gluten free); amounts of sour cream, cheese and greens can be varied to taste.
