Chicken and Buckwheat CasseroleJuly 5th, 2014 in Chicken, Main Dishes by Julia Volhina
I know that buckwheat isn’t something people in this part of the world eat. But I like it, and it is very nutritious to say the least.
I also was so pleased to find roasted version of it in stock of local Whole Foods (which I either didn’t pay attention to before, or they kind of decided to be adventures and try it), so I decided to publish an interesting recipe using buckwheat this week.
Cooking buckwheat in the same pan with chicken, onions, garlics and sour cream gives it nice taste (and makes one pot less to clean, yay!). You can serve casserole as soon as it is ready, storing it leftovers in fridge and then reheating them makes a nice lunch too.
I used boneless skinless chicken thighs for this recipe, but any boneless chicken meat will work just fine.
Eggplant Roast with VegetablesMay 17th, 2014 in Appetizers & Snacks, Main Dishes, No-meat, Sides 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.
Summer Squash OmeletteFebruary 15th, 2014 in Eggs, Main Dishes, No-meat by Julia Volhina
Perfect recipe for breakfast or brunch, especially on a weekend.
Summer squashes or zucchinis or a combination of these will work for this recipe. One or two, depending on their size and size of skillet you use. You will need just enough to form a single layer.
I used italian blend of cheeses, it worked perfectly. Other cheese or combination of cheese to your liking will work as well.
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 Cutlets with Mushroom and CheeseAugust 3rd, 2013 in Chicken, Main Dishes by Julia Volhina
One of visitors of forum I am often read shared this recipe, and I had to try it: it seems both easy to do and very unusual.
And turned out great: chicken meat pieces, mixed with mushroom pieces and cheese, tasty, juicy, melty and just great!
I tried two kinds of side dish with chicken and mushroom cutlets: boiled potatoes and boiled buckwheat, and I liked it. I think fresh veggies salad will be a good addition.
Ramps Spring Salad with Eggs and CucumbersMay 18th, 2013 in Salads by Julia Volhina
This salad filled with vitamins. But it is highly seasonal, unless you have fresh ramps at your disposal anytime of a year.
I saw them by in Whole Foods other day, and couldn’t pass by, had to take an opportunity to make this salad.
Ramps have intense garlicky taste, if you want to make it less so, add a bit more sour cream to the dressing.
Turkey MeatloafApril 13th, 2013 in Main Dishes, Turkey by Julia Volhina
This is another experiment with turkey meat, which I am not very familiar with. And I must say I like how it turned out.
I used ground turkey breast meat, but thighs would do good as well, or a combination of these.
This recipe is good choice for lunch or dinner, leftovers can be stored in fridge and warmed up before serving.
