String Beans Fried with EggsJune 4th, 2011 in Main Dishes, No-meat, Sides by Julia Volhina
Yet another recipe for fried green string beans, now accompanied by scrambled eggs.
Any kind of string beans will work good for this one: green or yellow, thin or thick, whole or cut – just adjust boiling time so they are cooked enough but not too soft when done.
I don’t think there can be too much eggs used when cooking string beans. Even though there are only 2 on the picture and I ended up using 3, but actually think 4 would be even better, so just cook to your taste!
Spicy Guacamole DipFebruary 26th, 2011 in Sauces & Dips & Spreads by Julia Volhina
First time I tried this green dip, it was served as a side dish to something very spicy in mexican restaurant, and it didn’t impress me. Probably, that was about color: I never seen avocados before and their bright green color seem almost artificial.
Nevertheless, I tried it and since then these unusual and very nutritious fruits are very important part of my diet: amusingly they have more potassium than bananas, have high fiber content and rich on vitamins E, B and K.
This variant of guacamole is a bit spicy. If you want to make it mild: either increase amount of avocados or reduce amount of serrano peppers and onion; adding sour cream can help reduce hotness as well.
Green Beans Fried with ButterMay 22nd, 2010 in Sides by Julia Volhina
This recipe is one of the simplest ways of cooking green beans: just boil them, then drain and fry until ready; and then you have nutritious side dish which will be nice addition to your main dish course.
Preparation of this dish takes less than 20 mins and can be split in 2 parts to help you save some time: boil beans in advance and them fry right before serving to keep them warm and fresh.
Fried green beans go well with fried or grilled meats: steaks, cutlets, schnitzels, chops, etc. However they can be also served as separate no-meat dish.
Soup-Purée with Broccoli and ChickenMay 8th, 2010 in Hot Soups, Soups by Julia Volhina
This bright green colored soup-purée (or cream soup) made of chicken, broccoli and some other vegies is probably the quickest to prepare soup I know.
It is also nutritious: loaded with healthy vegetables and white chicken meat, which are boiled, pureed and blended together for tasty creamy texture.
All that makes this soup very good choice not only for kids, but also for people who prefer soft food.
Zucchini Pancakes (Summer Squash Pancakes)September 12th, 2009 in Appetizers & Snacks, Main Dishes, No-meat, Sides by Julia Volhina
I prepared pancakes from zucchini, but they are also good prepared of any other kind of summer squash or even mix of them.
Soft and tender vegetable pancakes, they are easy and very fast to do. Perfect dish for breakfast or lunch, or for any other “hunger feeding” quick food break.
Odds are your kids will love them (even though they consist of pure vegetables)!
Fried Broccoli Side DishJanuary 4th, 2009 in Sides by Julia Volhina
You may want to try frying broccoli in eggs and flour if you find taste of boiled ones not that exciting. It is not much harder to prepare but it has more rich taste.
Amount of eggs and flour will depend on size of broccoli crowns, so numbers I’ve listed are approximate.
In this recipe plain flour can be replaced with bread crumbs or a mix of bread crumbs and parmesan cheese if you are adventurous.
Serve fried broccoli as a side dish or an appetizer.
