Roasted Spaghetti Squash with Tomato Basil SauceSeptember 15th, 2012 in Main Dishes, No-meat, Sides by Julia Volhina
Cooking spaghetti squash was yet another food-related discovery for me since we arrived to US.
What makes it interesting is spaghetti-like strands of pulp which can be scooped out with a fork after squash is cooked.
That gives so much room for creativity 🙂 . My first attempt was an easy choice: roast spaghetti squash and mix its pulp with simple tomato and basil sauce.
I hope you will like it.
Zucchini Pancakes with Sheep CheeseApril 28th, 2012 in Main Dishes, No-meat by Julia Volhina
These are zucchini based vegetable pancakes with a bit of fresh sheep cheese, which can be optional if you don’t like sheep cheese, but to my opinion it benefits a lot to the taste.
You can use zucchini or other kind of summer squash; remove seeds they already formed before cooking.
Vegetable pancakes are good choice for breakfast, brunch or lunch. Serve them warm with sour cream or sour cream and garlic dip how I did.
Stuffed Spaghetti SquashNovember 26th, 2011 in Beef, Main Dishes by Julia Volhina
My mom usually cooked big zucchini like this: stiffing it with ground beef and rice mince.
However I wasn’t able to find an “adult” zucchini in any shop here in US to cook it. It seems that they don’t survive long enough to grow big here (maybe green piece should look into that, I don’t know).
Anyway, I believe spaghetti squash is a good substitute for this recipe: it serves the purpose by being squash and providing a cavity to cook stuffing, and it also brings nice unique texture to the dish with its “spaghettiness”.
The taste here is similar to cabbage rolls (as if they were made of squash 🙂 ), however the amount of work you need to put into this one is considerably smaller.
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 Zucchini with GarlicJune 13th, 2009 in Appetizers & Snacks, Sides by Julia Volhina
Zucchini itself is low in calories and contains useful amounts of folate, potassium, manganese and vitamin A. Garlic is also very health-giving ingredient. And they both are combined in this fast to do and easy to do recipe.
Fried Zucchini with Garlic is very good on its own as a snack or an appetizer, however it is also perfect for poultry and meat entrees as a side dish.
Reduce amount of garlic if you are worried about a breath, but I really advice to keep garlic in, this dish isn’t so tasty without it.
