How to Make Vegetable BrothSeptember 28th, 2013 in Tips, Advices & How-to by Julia Volhina
Making vegetable broth isn’t such a hard thing to do: get bunch of roots and vegetables, stick them all in a pot and in about 1-1.5h you will get a vegetable broth to use for a soup or another dish which you know what it is made of (unlike a canned one).
Good thing about making vegetable broth yourself is that you can use vegetables left over from other dishes: stems from greens (parsley or dill), stem from white cabbage or stem and leaves from cauliflower, greens from leeks, etc – bits and pieces that you wouldn’t have any use for otherwise.
You can boil fresh vegetables just fine, however the method with roasting vegetables first produce more tasting and colorful broth. If you are looking to get more colorful broth keep inner clean brown layer of onion shell on, using more carrot will help too.

Chicken Stuffed LeeksMay 26th, 2012 in Chicken, Main Dishes by Julia Volhina
When I saw recipe for stuffed leeks first time I decided for myself that I get to try cook something like this for sure: it looks unusual, have a lot of vegetables and doesn’t look hard to cook.
I decided to stuff them with chicken mince and rice and accompany it with tomato and bell pepper mix.
I did 2 layers pipes, but if you want to use less leeks you can separate leeks into 1 layer.
Mussels Steamed with Vegetables in White WineFebruary 11th, 2012 in Fish, Main Dishes by Julia Volhina
This not complicated recipe is my first attempt to cook mussels. They turned out juicy and light. Thanks to Hans-Peter and his cooking lessons 🙂
Vegetables cooked this way, with wine and mussels juices, taste great as well as mussels themselves, serve them all together!
By the way, 1lb-1.5lb of mussels per serving sounds about right, this way amount of ingredients listed in this recipe is enough to feed 2-3 people.
