Simple Cauliflower Puree (Mashed Cauliflower)

August 1st, 2015 in Side Dish Recipes by Julia Volhina

Lately, I am cutting on my potato intake, but it is hard because I like such sides as mashed potatoes, for example. So when I read about mashed cauliflower being something similar but healthier, I had to try it right away.

I must say, mashed cauliflower still tastes like cauliflower, however the texture of it is very much similar to the texture of potato puree. So I think, I am pleased with my results.

I used hand immersion hand blender to puree my cauliflowers, but I am pretty sure stand blender or food processor will work for it as well.

Don’t over do on amount of milk – cauliflower will need much less than potato would, so add it very gradually, spoon by spoon until desired consistency.

Blueberry and Ice Cream Milkshake

July 18th, 2015 in Beverages, Non-alcoholic by Julia Volhina

Not complicated recipe for homemade drink to enjoy this hot summer: a milkshake made of fresh (and colorful) blueberries, ice cream and milk, you will also need a stand blender.

Fresh berries are just great for this. But they can be replaced with frozen ones to make it more affordable or when fresh blueberries are out of season.

Listed ingredients will yield about 3 portions. Work in batches to make more in case you have 48oz blender cup like I do.

Cucumber and Dill Salad

May 23rd, 2015 in Salads, Side Dish Recipes by Julia Volhina

This is my recipe for so called Polish Cucumber salad: simple salad with cucumbers, fresh dill and marinated onions.

Marinating onions makes them less bitter and removes most of that onion breath smell therefore this salad is great for parties, cookouts and such.

I am using balsamic vinegar and sour cream as dressing here. If you like, you can replace vinegar with lemon juice, but I somehow like vinegar better.

Scalloped Potatoes with Parmesan

April 25th, 2015 in Main Dishes, No-meat, Side Dish Recipes by Julia Volhina

Creamy potato and parmesan cheese casserole which can be served as a side or a main dish.

It is pretty easy to do, and can be a great choice if you need to bring something with you to a cookout.

Left overs can be easily stored in fridge and re-heated in microwave.

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.

Apple, Sorrel and Lettuce Salad

December 6th, 2014 in Salads by Julia Volhina

It seems to me that sorrel isn’t something very popular in cooking in this part of the world.

But just in case if you were looking for some recipe using it, here is one: fresh raw salad with sorrel, apple and romaine lettuce dressed with lemon juice and honey.

If dressing seems too sour for you, replace some juice with water and increase amount of honey, that should do the trick.

Roasted Vegetables and Mushrooms with Parmesan Sauce

September 13th, 2014 in Main Dishes, No-meat, Side Dish Recipes by Julia Volhina

Friend of mine introduced this dish to me few weeks ago and since then I cooked it pretty much every week.

It is pretty easy to do, and it provides a variety of vegetables to the table as it cooks zucchini, asparagus spears and mushrooms in the same time. The batch I usually get will feed about 6 people as a side dish with no leftovers (and I don’t think I ever had any of these left over actually).

It is very important to use portobello mushrooms in this recipe, as they have distinct aroma and taste which gets transferred to vegetables as well.
