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.

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.

Raw Vegetable Salad with Feta

August 30th, 2014 in Salads by Julia Volhina

I am trying to eat my vegetables raw at the moment (losing some weight, trying to eat more healthy, running and such). So this is a salad which I make for myself for lunch at work to accomplish this.

It takes about 10 mins to do all the slicing and dicing. And maybe 5 more for cleaning and packing.

Occasionally I add to it raw corn, onions, spinach, lettuce to vary things up, but cucumbers, tomatoes, mini peppers and avocado are always present.

Korean Style Carrots

August 9th, 2014 in Appetizers & Snacks, Salads, Side Dish Recipes by Julia Volhina

Korean style carrots (“morkovka po-korejski”) is a popular in post-USSR countries dish which is usually served as salad, side dish or relish.

Often it is also served on hot dogs along with sausage inside the bun.

These pretty spicy carrots are great side for meats or poultry. They can also be used as one of ingredients for salads and other dishes.

Eggplant Roast with Vegetables

May 17th, 2014 in Appetizers & Snacks, Main Dishes, No-meat, Side Dish Recipes by Julia Volhina

This is nice looking dish which can be served as either a main entree, a side dish, or an appetizer.

It contains no meat, just eggplant, bell pepper, tomatoes, sour cream and cheese.

Eggplant roasted this way looks festive (and will for sure fit nicely on a holiday table), and it is also pretty easy to do.

One medium size eggplant will produce 2-3 servings.

Carrots and Ginger Soup-Puree

March 29th, 2014 in Hot Soups, Soup Recipes by Julia Volhina

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.

Salad with Chicken and Fresh Vegetables

March 8th, 2014 in Salads by Julia Volhina

Spring is right around the corner. And even though nowadays you can buy fresh vegetables all year around, in spring they taste somehow special. Maybe this is a way how body let’s you know it needs to be replenished with vitamins.

This is why I am publishing this recipe for salad made of fresh bell peppers, cucumbers and tomatoes with boiled white chicken meat and a bit of cheese.

By the way, mayo in the dressing can be mixed with sour cream for skinnier version.
