Vegetable Soup with Cauliflower and RiceJune 30th, 2018 in Hot Soups, Soups by Julia Volhina
Don’t let the amount of ingredients this recipe calls for to scare you: it is not as hard to cook as it may seem (just many pictures).
In fact it is pretty easy, especially if you are keen on peeling and slicing. And cooking takes just about 30 mins.
If you are looking for lighter version calorie-wise, reduce amount of flour (or skip it all together).
Reducing amount of sour cream will help too, but I wouldn’t skip on it entirely, it adds a lot to the taste.
Radish and Cucumber SaladJune 2nd, 2018 in Salads by Julia Volhina
Featuring today a recipe for pretty simple limited ingredient spring salad with radishes and cucumber.
It requires up to 15 mins to prepare. Even less if you use mandeline instead of a knife.
This salad will be a good complement for a steak or some meat and vegetable entree.
If sour cream you use is thick, you can mix it with the lemon juice first before dressing the salad, that will make mixing of salad easier.
Chicken and Cabbage PattiesMay 19th, 2018 in Chicken, Main Dishes by Julia Volhina
Getting inventive with chicken patties: using cabbage instead of bread or breadcrumbs as filler.
I must say these are a hit: juicy and very tasty.
And so quick and easy to do, especially if you use ready to go minced chicken meat and food processor for cabbage and onion.
These patties taste great with potatoes or grains (I served these with boiled buckwheat), salads as well are great choice here.
Pasta with Asparagus and ParmesanApril 21st, 2018 in Main Dishes, No-meat, Pasta by Julia Volhina
Good recipe for no-meat linguine or fettuccine pasta.
Pretty quick to make, nothing sophisticated, plain and simple steps to follow, as quick as cooking pasta itself.
Secret chief’s secret: don’t overcook asparagus and don’t burn garlic, that is about it.
Great recipe when you are short on time and need to eat.
Cilantro Lime Shrimps SaladApril 7th, 2018 in Salads by Julia Volhina
If you have more cilantro lime shrimps on your hands than you can eat or if eating them plain isn’t as exciting as it was anymore and you want to add some veggies to your diet, this salad may be an idea to try.
It doesn’t take much time to do, and is pretty easy to do: chops veggies, add shrimps and beans, dress and mix.
Cilantro lime shrimps from Costco’s will work here, or if you feel adventurous – try to prepare shrimps yourself, as I’ve described in my previous recipe, either will work for this one.
Cilantro Lime ShrimpsMarch 24th, 2018 in Appetizers & Snacks by Julia Volhina
Discovered this simple way to dress boiled shrimps while trying to recreate a similar one from Costco: marinate boiled shrimps in lime juice, spices and cilantro.
Of course the taste is not exactly the same as of Costco ones, but the list of ingredients is also much shorter.
These shrimps can be served on their own as appetizer or added to salads or tacos.
Using already cooked, peeled and deveined shrimps like I did will save a lot of time, if you want to cook and/or clean shrimps yourself, factor the time in for it.
