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.
Russian Meat Dumplings (Pelmeni)June 30th, 2012 in Beef, Main Dishes, Pork by Julia Volhina
Pelmeni (russian meat dumplings) is one of the dishes which take a lot of time to make.
However once done, you can freeze them up for future use, which is perfect for times when you are short on time and need to get something fast to eat.
And just a hint, it goes faster if you are not assembling them alone.
You can use already ground meat, or grind meat yourself and if you choose to do so – grind onions together with meat.
Chicken Stuffed LeeksMay 26th, 2012 in Chicken, Main Dishes by Julia Volhina
When I saw recipe for stuffed leeks first time I decided for myself that I get to try cook something like this for sure: it looks unusual, have a lot of vegetables and doesn’t look hard to cook.
I decided to stuff them with chicken mince and rice and accompany it with tomato and bell pepper mix.
I did 2 layers pipes, but if you want to use less leeks you can separate leeks into 1 layer.
Eclairs with Vanilla CustardMarch 17th, 2012 in Desserts by Julia Volhina
While preparing for this post I got some difficulties translating name as well as figuring origin of the recipe.
I guess the general decision was that the recipe is french, however I never ate eclairs prepared by french cook, so I can’t prove that this is exactly the same recipe.
This is recipe as eclairs are cooked in Russia, russian name of that pastry is “zavarnye pirozhennye” and it relates to the way the dough is cooked by boiling.
The common name in english speaking worlds seems to be eclairs, however this only related to long shaped pastry. Round ones are often called cream puffs, even though they are only different in shape.
I do fill these with vanilla custard, but other fillings can be used as well: whipped cream (these would need to be served as soon as made or cream needs to be stabilized), butter and condensed milk filling, and so on.
Omelette Stuffed with Mushrooms and OnionsFebruary 25th, 2012 in Eggs, Main Dishes by Julia Volhina
This is a nice breakfast or lunch recipe for two: tender omelette stuffed with mushrooms and onions braised with a spoon of sour cream and seasoned with shredded cheese.
Amount of ingredients listed here is yields exactly 2 omelettes, if you want to cook more – just increase amounts of ingredients accordingly.
And if you fry omelettes one after another, use warm plates to make sure first one is still warm when the last one is cooked.
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.
Russian Fried Pies with Meat and Rice StuffingOctober 29th, 2011 in Beef, Main Dishes by Julia Volhina
Fried pies (piroshki/pyrizhky), resembling individual size fried buns of yeast dough with stuffing, are very popular in all countries of ex-USSR. There are many stuffing variations for these: fruity and sweet or savory.
This is recipe for piroshki with boiled meat and rice stuffing – meat left over after preparing broth or soup is usually used to prepare these. And later fried pies can be served together with that soup or broth.
Piroshki are good choice if you need to take food to-go: they don’t require refrigeration to keep them fresh (for 1-2 days).
