Tortilla Rolls with Fresh Cheese and GarlicMay 3rd, 2014 in Appetizers & Snacks by Julia Volhina
Flour tortilla rolls with fresh cheese, dill and garlic will pair perfectly with beer as a snack. Or an appetizer, or both.
You can prepare them in advance and slice right before serving, just allow them to sit in fridge for at least 30 mins before serving, so tortillas can soak moisture a bit.
At home we made these with lavash bread, but it is a bit hard to find here, so I used ready to go flour tortillas and it worked good too.
As for the cheese you can use any fresh cheese which can be easily crumbled to your taste: fresh white cheese (quark), feta or queso fresco.
Scrambled Eggs with Ham and TomatoesAugust 10th, 2013 in Eggs, Main Dishes by Julia Volhina
I just realized that my website doesn’t have any scrambled egg recipes published by now. So here is an attempt to fix this issue.
Obviously, this recipe is good for breakfast or brunch, or just for any time when you need to fix something to eat fast. Amount of ingredients is good for 2 portions.
You can use ham, just like I did, or canadian bacon, or hot dogs, or another kind of sausage you like. Taste will be slightly different.
Chicken and Feta Stuffed Mushroom CapsJuly 21st, 2012 in Appetizers & Snacks, Chicken by Julia Volhina
I saw these gorgeous fresh mushrooms in the store, and it seemed they were asking to be stuffed – clean, big and even sized.
I decided to stuff them with creamy chicken and feta cheese mix dressed with sour cream and a bit of fresh parsley. If this sounds like a good idea to you, try this recipe.
And by the way, it can be served as an appetizer (especially if you use bite size mushroom caps), snack or even main course.
Mussels Steamed with Vegetables in White WineFebruary 11th, 2012 in Fish, Main Dishes by Julia Volhina
This not complicated recipe is my first attempt to cook mussels. They turned out juicy and light. Thanks to Hans-Peter and his cooking lessons 🙂
Vegetables cooked this way, with wine and mussels juices, taste great as well as mussels themselves, serve them all together!
By the way, 1lb-1.5lb of mussels per serving sounds about right, this way amount of ingredients listed in this recipe is enough to feed 2-3 people.
Layered Liver CakeJanuary 28th, 2012 in Appetizers & Snacks by Julia Volhina
Layered liver cake, dish of traditional Ukrainian cuisine, is often served as appetizer on various celebrations, in fact I tried it first time on a wedding.
For this recipe I used chicken liver, but beef liver will work good as well.
Carrots and onions stuffing can be skipped all together – it will decrease cooking time and reduce amount of mayo to be used (since layers will not need that much mayo to stick together). However carrots go great with liver.
How many layers you get from this amount of ingredients depends on the size of the frying pan you use. I think 11” frying pan is the best – not too big not too small. The ideal amount of layers for this recipe is about 12; if you get more split them in half and assemble 2 cakes.
Russian Zucchini PasteSeptember 24th, 2011 in Appetizers & Snacks, Main Dishes, No-meat, Sides by Julia Volhina
This is recipe of zucchini paste from my mom: easy to cook, contains only vegetables (zucchini, tomatoes and onions) and is very-very tasty.
I usually eat this paste on bread toast, for breakfast or as a snack; however it is also a nice side dish to help increase vegetable servings in your daily diet.
Zucchini paste can be served warm or cooled down.
Tomatoes Stuffed with Fresh CheeseJuly 30th, 2011 in Appetizers & Snacks by Julia Volhina
These campari tomatoes stuffed with fresh quark cheese, chopped greens and garlic can be nice addition to any celebration table or a cookout: they look festive, taste good and can be easily eaten with fingers.
If you can’t find quark cheese (sometimes called farmers cheese, or fresh white cheese, or tvorog in russian) it may work with feta cheese, but I like it more with quark.
Seeds and pulp from tomatoes as well as top parts – once removed – are not needed for this recipe. You can discard them, or use in some other dish.
Many kind of stews and soups would only benefit from fresh tomatoes. I used seeds and juice from this batch to marinate a nice ribeye steak.
