All kinds of salads

Quick and easy creamy gazpacho

Imagine warm summer evening, when the table is set up outside, pieces of rustic bread are slightly covered with the kitchen towel, garlic infused olive oil sitting near by, glasses are filled with some crispy Sauvignon blanc, a casual conversation is taking place and chilled tomato soup, made from today’s harvest is the whole reason […]

Raw Zucchini & Carrots noodles on spinach and nori bed

It’s summer. It’s hot. I haven’t had desire to cook for the last..well, quite a few weeks. I mean I really want to make something, but I always end up with: fruit salad, vegetable rolls and sorbet. So, as you can see not too much of a creativity involved. I look at all these pictures […]

Three types of spread to make Vegetarian, Vegan and Normal nori rolls

When we see something wrapped in the nori sheet we think of Sushi roll, of course.

Beluga lentils salad with stir fried bok-choy, marinated asparagus and massaged kale

Right now I’m almost in the middle of the second week doing Cleanse (you can read more about it here). I’m not a Whole Living subscriber and hardly have an idea who Martha Stewart is, but I’m an absolute fan of Sarah B. from the My New Roots, who was asked to come up with […]

Savoy cabbage wrap with lima beans, carrots, red cabbage and green peas guacamole

There are still inches of snow outside, but I’m done with this. I won’t put on layers of sweaters, no more complains, no more anything winter-related. I put a spring mode on. I’m taking my first yoga class tonight after a long break, I’m wearing just one shirt and a cardigan (most likely I’ll need […]

Vinegrette: Traditional Russian beet salad

Russians love beets. They sink in hot borsch or cold svekolnik (made with beet greens), dig into “heiring under the fur coat” (its another delicious salad), eat rye bread with the beet and garlic spread and even drink Kvas, made from guess what? – beets! I don’t know where this love came from, but I […]
