Spinach Cheese DipSeptember 8th, 2018 in Appetizers & Snacks by Julia Volhina
One more recipe to the lineup of appetizers using cream cheese for me. This time it is for hot spinach cream cheese dip with parmesan and garlic.
Good choice if you are looking to increase the amount of leafy greens in your diet.
It is pretty easy to do and you can get a bowl full of goodness ready for your party or gathering literally in minutes.
Serve hot with tortilla chips or veggies.
Vegetable Soup with Cauliflower and RiceJune 30th, 2018 in Hot Soups, Soups by Julia Volhina
Don’t let the amount of ingredients this recipe calls for to scare you: it is not as hard to cook as it may seem (just many pictures).
In fact it is pretty easy, especially if you are keen on peeling and slicing. And cooking takes just about 30 mins.
If you are looking for lighter version calorie-wise, reduce amount of flour (or skip it all together).
Reducing amount of sour cream will help too, but I wouldn’t skip on it entirely, it adds a lot to the taste.
Radish and Cucumber SaladJune 2nd, 2018 in Salads by Julia Volhina
Featuring today a recipe for pretty simple limited ingredient spring salad with radishes and cucumber.
It requires up to 15 mins to prepare. Even less if you use mandeline instead of a knife.
This salad will be a good complement for a steak or some meat and vegetable entree.
If sour cream you use is thick, you can mix it with the lemon juice first before dressing the salad, that will make mixing of salad easier.
Mushrooms and PeasJanuary 27th, 2018 in Main Dishes, No-meat, Sides by Julia Volhina
Little something without the meat: mushrooms cooked with peas and tomatoes in tomato juice and sour cream sauce.
It takes about 30 mins to cook, and pretty easy too. Just use good tasting canned tomatoes with no extra additives.
Serve mushrooms and peas as a dish on its own, or in addition to healthy grains or pasta. My favorite here is boiled buckwheat, but they I am a bit biased towards it.
It can even be a sauce for meat, if you wish it.
Cabbage with PrunesJanuary 13th, 2018 in Main Dishes, No-meat, Sides by Julia Volhina
Unusual combination of prunes and cabbage, stewed together.
Slightly sweet, pure veggies, just a bit of oil, so not too heavy and pretty simple to cook, especially if you shred cabbage with mandoline or some similar tool.
If you use prunes with pits, account for few additional minutes to remove them. It isn’t too hard, just a bit messy. If pits are not coming out easily, soak them a bit longer.
Serve cabbage with prunes as a separate entry or a side dish.
Fried Pies with Green Onions and Boiled EggsOctober 21st, 2017 in Eggs, Main Dishes, No-meat by Julia Volhina
These are my favorite fried pies – my grandma used to cook these, and I was always amazed how such simple combination of ingredients can produce such tasty pies.
These are type of russian pies (piroshki or pyrizhky) – dough dumplings stuffed with green onions and hard boiled eggs and then fried on a skillet.
Again, you can use ready-to-go dough, or prepare dough yourself, for this recipe you would need about half of the batch prepare for unsweetened yeast dough.
