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.
Homemade Chickpea HummusJuly 15th, 2017 in Sauces & Dips & Spreads, Sides by Julia Volhina
Got a can or two of chickpeas stuck in the pantry? Or boiled a cup too many of garbanzo beans and looking for creative way to use them? Try this homemade hummus recipe.
It takes about 5 mins to make and you get a fresh batch of hummus to eat with your favorite vegetables, pita bread, chips or for further use in other recipes.
For this recipe I cooked beans from scratch. If you do the same save some of the water beans are cooked in and use it instead of water in this recipe.
Chickpea Garam MasalaJune 17th, 2017 in Main Dishes, No-meat, Sides by Julia Volhina
One of the easiest chickpea recipes to make, yet so tasty one. This vegetarian dish will require a little less than 20 mins of cooking.
It can be served on its own, with a bit of bread, or as a side for boiled rice or quinoa.
I think this is one of traditional Indian recipe. Tweak the taste to your liking by adjusting amount of spices or even spices themselves. The recipe calls for garam masala, but a good curry powder will work as well.
I always soak and boil chickpeas myself, drain them before using here (preserve a bit of water they were cooking in). Using canned ones is an option as well, it will certainly be quicker. If going this route, use water at step 10.
Roasted Pork tenderloin with Spicy RubJanuary 28th, 2017 in Main Dishes, Pork by Julia Volhina
Somehow I never roasted a pork tenderloin until about month ago. And now once I tried, I can’t stop doing it.
Not only it is very easy and fast to cook, but it also turns out very delicious and tender, and spices can be varied to whatever you like.
You can use pretty much any ready-to-use pork meat rub here. Sometimes I do, and other times I make my own, see list of spices in the recipe.
Italian Sausage Soup with CauliflowerDecember 31st, 2016 in Hot Soups, Soups by Julia Volhina
Cauliflower and vegetables soup infused with Italian spices and cream is another creation perfect for cold winter weather: it fills and warms you up.
And that fact that this soup is pretty easy and quick to do if just another reason to try it out.
Fresh chicken broth works perfect here, however good grade boxed broth is a good option too.
Sometimes I use broth from boiling chicken thighs for salads and such, to not waste a good stuff.
If you are looking for more heat use hot Italian sausage instead of mild one or in addition to it.
Mushroom CurryDecember 3rd, 2016 in Main Dishes, No-meat by Julia Volhina
Quick and easy no meat mushroom curry. I could probably get away with using curry powder, but for this recipe I used actual mix of spices.
That way I could can play with spiciness and taste a bit every time I cook it.
Mushroom curry tastes great with boiled rice, or boiled barley. I even add it to salads sometimes to spice things up a bit.
It is really pretty fast recipe to cook and very tasty.
