Chicken and Mushroom Quiche Pie

Chicken and Mushroom Quiche Pie

This is a variation of a quiche pie with chicken and mushrooms and no crust.

Not a quickest recipe to cook, however as soon as you stick it to the oven, it does not require much attention, just checking the readiness would be the thing to do.

Using pre-cooked chicken (rotisserie or boiled leftovers) is an option here, just fry mushrooms alone and add cooked chicken to the batter. It will speed up the cooking as well.

This pie would taste great for breakfast, lunch or brunch.

Zucchini Rolls with Cream Cheese

Zucchini Rolls with Cream Cheese

As zucchini season is in full swing I want to share a recipe for this amazing appetizer: zucchini rolls with cream cheese, garlic and fresh herbs stuffing.

I must say it is one of my favorite finger foods. I think I can eat the whole plate of these by myself.

Use mandoline to slice zucchini here, it will make life much easier and will speed process up a lot.

If you want to reduce oil intake – roasting zucchini in the oven in grilling skillet can be an option to.

Fresh Cheese Salad with Ramps

Fresh Cheese Salad with Ramps

Ramps are seasonal, and not many stores carry them. I have few recipes for ramps lined up to try but it is always a matter of will I be lucky to find them or not to be able to share.

This year I was lucky to be at the store when local Whole Foods had them for a brief amount of time.

So, long story short, you may not be able to try this until next year when ramps come back, but nevertheless I want to share the recipe for a ramps salad with fresh cheese and eggs.

It is full of vitamin goodness ramps offer and is a great choice for an early spring.

Fresh cheese for this salad can also be hard to find. So either make it yourself or try cottage cheese (if will probably not need mashing, so skip that step if you do)

Vegetable Soup with Cauliflower and Rice

Vegetable Soup with Cauliflower and Rice

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 Salad

Radish and Cucumber Salad

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.

Red Beans and Crab Stick Salad

Red Beans and Crab Stick Salad

Need some beans in your life? Try this quick salad.

Unusual combination of crab stick, beans, eggs and greens, but very gentle taste I would say.

The combination of crab stick and eggs is something one can never be wrong with, that is if you like both eggs and crab stick of course.

This takes minutes to assemble, especially if you boil eggs in advance. If you don’t, make sure they are cooled down till room temperature before cutting them for the salad.

Napa Cabbage and Chicken Salad

Napa Cabbage and Chicken Salad

Napa cabbage is tender and juicy and is generally good choice for salads: doesn’t require any extra work to soften it up.

As any cabbage, it is high on vitamin C, so it is good choice of food for that flu and cold season.

This is also a salad to do if you got some leftover chicken and need to find some use for it: just remove skin and bones.

Any chicken meat will do, I boiled some thighs to prepare this post.
