Olivier salad (our family recipe)

It is this salad that I have eaten since childhood, and honestly, I have not found a recipe tastier than it. Neither with caviar, nor with shrimp and squid, nor lean, nor with fish, and with anything else does not give me such a buzz as our family recipe.


  • Beef pulp-700 g.
  • Chicken eggs-5-6 PCs.
  • Potatoes-2-3 pieces of medium size
  • Carrots – 2 PCs. large or 3 pcs. medium size
  • Sweet and sour juicy apple – 1 large or 2 small (I like more apples, it tastes juicier and fresher)
  • Salted / pickled cucumbers-5-6 PCs.
  • Canned peas (without sugar) – 1 jar or 200-250 G.
  • Mayonnaise – to taste. I really ask you to buy delicious or make it yourself. Unfortunately, a stupid Mazik can spoil the taste of even a very tasty salad.
  • Horseradish (optional, but it will be much more interesting and tasty).

How to do:

1. meat, eggs and vegetables I usually cook the day before. Pour boiling water over the meat and cook for 2-3 hours until very soft. I cook without spices and salt because the salad will have a lot of spicy and salty ingredients. Cool completely, then cut into cubes about the size of peas. I like it when all the ingredients in this salad are the same size.

2. potatoes and carrots wash and cook in salted water for about 30 minutes. You do not need to clean them. Readiness is checked with a knife, it should easily enter to the middle of the largest vegetable. Immediately drain the water, completely cool, clean and cut into cubes.

3. eggs cook in salted water for 10-15 minutes. In salt, so that the shell easily departs. Fill the finished eggs with cold water, clean right in it. So it is easier to clean, and the shell all settles to the bottom, there is definitely nothing left on the eggs themselves. Cut into cubes.

4. apples need to be washed, cleaned and similarly cut into cubes.

5. cucumbers cut into cubes, like all the previous ingredients. I recommend buying them small. If the cucumbers are very large, they will have tasteless huge seeds and a lot of brine, and they themselves will be too sluggish, not crispy. In addition, small cucumbers can not be cleaned, their skin is tender.

6. peas are thrown back into a colander, drain the brine and rinse them a little. You can not rinse, the main thing is to drain the brine well, because there is a lot of salt in it.

7. combine all the ingredients in a large container, which can be hermetically sealed. I do not recommend all mayonnaise at once, unless you immediately eat it all. It is better to mix the required amount of salad with the sauce immediately before serving. Salad can be served in portions, laying it out in a culinary ring. I decorated it with mayonnaise, pickled cucumber straws and boiled egg yolk. I highly recommend eating this salad with horseradish.

Taking this opportunity, I want to thank my mother for this recipe (and also for the recipe Herring under a fur coat) and wish everyone a good appetite!

Cream soup of pumpkin and apples with herb butter

This is the perfect soup for the end of summer/beginning of autumn, when the harvest of apples and pumpkins has already ripened, but there are still fresh, fragrant greens. The taste combines a whole palette of shades: sour (apples), sweet (pumpkin, carrots), bitter (chili, onion, garlic) and plus aromatic oil. It turns out an amazing balance. Everyone try;))

Ingredients for the soup:

• 1 small pumpkin, I have Hokkaido (1.3-1.5 kg),

• 2 large onion heads,

• 2 large apples or 3 small ones

• 1-2 carrots (optional, but it tastes better),

• 1-2 sticks of celery (optional, but more flavorful with it),

• 4 cloves of garlic (I generally put the head),

• Vegetable broth/chicken broth/water – 1 l. approximately (depends on the thickness of the soup you like),

• Olive oil – 2 tbsp.,

• Thyme – 4 branches or 1 tsp dry (instead of thyme,you can try to make a soup with sage or oregano),

• Ground chili – 0.25 – 0.5 tsp or to taste,

• Salt and pepper – to taste.

For satiety and increase the amount of protein in the dish, you can add a couple of handfuls of white already cooked beans to the soup. The main thing is not to overdo it, otherwise the taste will not be so bright. But don’t worry, it can be balanced by adding a little more spice;)

Ingredients for green oil:

• 1 medium-sized bunch of coriander or parsley, or a mix of them (I like the mix the most),

• 4-5 tbsp olive oil,

• 2 tbsp white wine vinegar or Apple cider vinegar,

• Optional garlic and onion powder 0.5 tsp.,

• Optional 2-3 tablespoons of water or to taste, to bring the sauce to the desired consistency,

• Salt and pepper to taste.

How to do:

1. All the vegetables/fruits to wash. Peel the onions and carrots if they are old. The young one can be left with the skin. Cut the pumpkin into 4 pieces, remove the insides with the seeds. Cut the carrots randomly, but smaller than the pumpkin. Cut the onion into 6 parts: that is, first in half, and each half into 3 more slices. Remove the core from the apples and cut them into 2-4 pieces. Celery cut into 4-6 parts. Garlic cloves divide by 1 piece. If you’re baking a whole head, like me, then cut off the top to show the cloves. Through these holes, we will then extract the baked garlic easily and simply.

2. Put everything from the first point on a baking sheet with baking paper, sprinkle with oil, throw the leaves with thyme, mix and bake at 160C until the onions and carrots are caramelized. It’s an hour, maybe two.

If you are in a hurry, set the temperature to 180C. It will be faster, but the vegetables are more likely to be boiled with baked edges. Also would be delicious, but the long baking gives the soup a unique taste umumnya;)

3. Remove the pulp from the finished pumpkin and Apple with a spoon and transfer it to a blender or saucepan, if you have an immersion blender. Peel the garlic and there, as well as all other vegetables and broth/water, bring the soup to a uniform consistency.

Only then season the soup with salt/pepper, chili and additional thyme. Try it, if the soup turned out to be sweet with a moderate sourness, quite sharp, but not too much, then it is ready! Bring to a boil over low heat, stirring. Turn off, let stand for 5-10 minutes, with the lid slightly open.

4. Do green oil. Put all the ingredients in a blender, except salt and pepper, and bring to a smooth finish. Try, add seasonings gradually, bring to a balanced taste.

5. Pour the soup into a plate, top with 2-3 tablespoons of green oil. I also sprinkle a little sweet paprika for beauty and put a spoonful of cashew mayonnaise (recipe here). By the way, bread croutons, which are always appropriate for mashed soups, can also be smeared with fragrant oil. Bon appetit!

Crispy cookies made of beans, apples and oatmeal

I’ve cooked a whole pot of red beans and all know where it would attach. Clocked lobio, has been thought to make chili con carne, but I wanted something new. And then all of a sudden you get these cookies))

Ingredients (for 20 cookies):

• 250g cooked red beans (you can also use chickpeas, white beans I did not like),

• 250g apples (preferably sour)

• 100g oat flour (I ground rolled oats),

• 50 grams of walnuts + 20 nut halves for decoration (walnuts can be replaced by another nut that you like),

• Zest of 2 oranges (careful not to put the white part of the peel – it’s bitter),

• 3-4 tbsp of sweetener (I have Jerusalem artichoke syrup), you can also optionally put a handful of raisins or other dried fruit,

• 1 tsp ground vanilla

• 3 tsp cinnamon,

• A pinch of salt.

How to do:

1. The beans cook, as I described in the recipe lobio. Or use 1 can purchase, thoroughly washed.

2. Wash apples, peel and remove any excess. Nuts to wash.

3. Punch in a blender all the ingredients (except flour, dried fruits and nuts for decoration) until smooth, add flour and dried fruit, stir again the weight has a spoon. Can the dough to try and add some spice or sweetness to your taste.

4. 1 tablespoons – 1 cookies. Roll a ball of dough and spread it on a baking tray with baking paper. When all the balls are ready, press the top cookie. Bake at 160C for 25 minutes. Cooking time depends on the oven. See when biscuits are browned, you can get.

If you leave them on air – they will be crumbly if you put it in your container, it will be like the gingerbread in consistency. And I really recommend eating them fresh. And all I’d had in the freezer and get as necessary. The longer you’ve been the cookies, the less flavorful it becomes.

Obscenely delicious salad with shrimp, avocado, mango, chickpeas and quinoa

Refreshing, unusual and very nutritious salad that can come for lunch or dinner.

Ingredients: 4 servings

• 30 large shrimp (you can substitute crab meat but crab sticks, please),

• 100 g of quinoa (about 4 tablespoons)

• 100 g dry chickpeas or 200 g of prepared chickpeas

• 1 ripe mango,

• 1 ripe but still elastic avocado,

• 1 large cucumber or 2 small (about 100 g)

• 1 sour-sweet juicy Apple medium size,

• Cilantro leaves (about 4-5 tablespoons in powdered form),

• Mint leaves (about 3-5 tbsp crushed),

• Lemon juice of half a lemon (about 3-4 tablespoons)

• Olive oil – 3 tablespoons,

• 1 lime to serve,

• Salt and pepper to taste.

How to do:

1. I like this salad with the regular white quinoa. I cook quinoa as directed on the package, since the method of cooking depends on the variety.

But usually so: thoroughly wash barley, soak it for at least 30 minutes or for a few hours, the seeds swelled, and trash spil, and it can be removed with running water. And most importantly, even after a short soaking, the quinoa will taste bitter.

Then fill it with water in a ratio of 1к2, bring to boil and cook under the lid for 10-15 minutes on medium heat. The idea is all the water should soak into the grains, if this has not happened, and the quinoa is tender, simply drain it in a colander.

Chickpeas to boil in any convenient way (here described in detail, as I do). All to cool to room temperature.

I usually cook a lot of chickpeas and quinoa, because I often use them in various other dishes. Recommend for convenience to do so as well.

2. Shrimp cleaned from the shell and tail, then make a cut on the back and remove the intestines, wash them, dry on a paper towel. The pan good heat, pour oil on it for frying and add 1 crushed clove of garlic. Warmed the oil for 10 seconds, stirring the garlic in the oil. Garlic take out and put the shrimp in 1 layer. Fry 1 minute on each side over very high heat. If shrimp are very large and raw (gray-green), then 1.5 min on each side. The main thing not to overdo, so they do not become rubber. Remove the shrimp, season with salt and pepper, stir. 10 shrimp cut into 3-4 pieces, the rest 20 pieces leave whole.

If you are using frozen shrimps then thaw them beforehand in the fridge. Then do with them as described above.

3. Apple, cucumber, mango, avocado, peel and seeds, cut into small cubes about the size of chickpeas. All at once pour the lemon juice and stir so that the fruit did not potemnela. Chop the herbs coarsely.

4. Mix all ingredients in a large bowl, except the whole shrimp and a pinch of greens (let’s leave it for decoration). Try the salad a taste and add more seasoning, oil or lemon juice if necessary.

5. Feed. Lay out the lettuce on a plate, top put 5 whole shrimp and sprinkle with herbs. On the edge of the plate place a quarter of lime. Before eating this salad is sure to generously sprinkle it with lime juice and enjoy;)

By the way, this salad can be wrapped in nori, and you get a snack Tamaki. Or wrap in rice paper, so you get something like spring rolls. Recommend to serve with peanut sauce, very delicious!

Apple-oatmeal cookies without flour, eggs and sugar

Favorite snack, which snack between santrallerinin.

Ingredients (for 16 pieces):

3 large apples (600g),

250g rolled oats,

2 tsp cinnamon,

0.5 tsp. powdered vanilla,

Sweetener optional (I don’t use it, because the sweetness of the apples is enough for me).

Optional can add 1 ripe(!) banana, if you love it in baked goods. It will give a light fragrance and sweetness of the liver. If you add a large banana, then throw in the dough are additionally a handful of oatmeal.

How to do:

1. Applesauce. You can buy ready, but I’m doing it: wash the apples, remove the stalk, seeds and veins, to peel the skin or not – at your discretion. From the summer apples I the skin is not removed, the purchase is always clean. RUB on a small grater or grind in a blender. Three apples is roughly 400g Apple puree.

2. Add to the sauce spices, mix, then add oatmeal. Portion of oatmeal can be ground. I usually do so. Whipped in a blender the apples, add the spices and 50g of oatmeal, whipped again, and to this mixture add the remaining 200 g of oat flakes.

Let the dough stand for 15 to 30 minutes, the mixture should be dense.

3. Spoon the mixture on baking paper and give the liver a desired shape, I have 1.5 tbsp with a slide – 1 cookie. Optionally, sprinkle top with cinnamon. Bake at 160C convection on the middle shelf for approximately 30 minutes or until it will turn brown. Cool completely and then eat.

Cookies the next day will not be as tasty, so I recommend something that is not eaten immediately, store in an airtight container in the freezer, and before eating, heat it in the toaster.

I always cook a lot of this cookie and part are frozento the house was a tasty and healthy snack.

This basic recipe can be changed by adding different fillings: flour, bran, spices, berries, dried fruits, nuts, seeds, syrups, nut paste, etc.

For example, with cranberries:

With cranberries and bitter chocolate With cocoa:

With raisins: With pine nuts: Mac:

With prunes and walnuts: Important 1. Like 1/3 of the nuts, chop into pieces; 2/3 nuts slenderite directly with apples.

Important 2. These cookies can strongly stick to the baking paper if it does not have special coating or you didn’t grease it with oil. In this case it is necessary to wait for complete cooling cookies on the baking sheet and iterative movements to twist it while pressing it lightly to the surface. So it will come off with no deformation;)

Important 3. I always do the cookie from the masses as many pieces to like and ate a lot, and in fact, almost nothing ate;)))

The most delicious oatmeal-Apple crumble with raisins, pecans and maple syrup

My favorite crumble, it is simple and gorgeous at the same time. With almost no sweeteners with minimal amounts of oil and flour, but with lots of fruit. Can’t imagine a more delicious way to eat a kilo of apples!

In this basic post, I described all the subtleties of making crumble, I highly recommend reading it first.

And now the recipe.

Ingredients for the filling:

  • 1kg of sweet and sour apples. It’s about 7 medium-sized apples, and is better to take different varieties, so the taste will be more interesting. Part of the apples you can substitute ripe pears or plums.
  • 100 g raisins (you can substitute prunes or dates),
  • 2-3 tbsp maple syrup (you can substitute another sweetener or even not to put it because of the raisins will be enough sweetness),
  • 3 tbsp lemon juice (you need about half a lemon),
  • 3 tsp cinnamon,
  • Grated zest of half a lemon,
  • A pinch of nutmeg and ground ginger.

Ingredients for crumble:

  • 200 g of oat flakes or any other, for example, “4 cereals”,
  • 50 g whole wheat flour/spelt flour/buckwheat flour, or any nut of your choice
  • 50 g pecans/walnuts, roughly chopped,
  • 100-150 ml of milk (coconut is very delicious)
  • 3 tbsp. softened butter ghee (you can substitute any vegetable and bake crumble given temperature dymlenija this oil),
  • 0.5 tsp. powdered vanilla,
  • 1-2 tbsp maple syrup,
  • A pinch of salt.

For serving: vanilla ice cream/Greek yoghurt/vanilla sauce, berries, nuts.

How to do:

1. Nuts rinse. If the nuts are old or have a bitter taste, then soak them in clean water until they become sweet to the taste, then dry the iteration at low temperatures (method I wrote here).

2. Wash apples, peel and carefully remove all inedible parts. Half of the apples grate on a coarse grater, the other half cut into thin slices (the thinner, the better). Raisins wash.

3. In a large saucepan heat some oil for frying (I have MCE) and put apples, raisins, sweetener and spices. Simmer on medium heat for 15-20 minutes until fully cooked and brown the apples, then add lemon juice and zest, stir, taste and add more spices and sweetener to your taste if necessary. The stuffing is ready.

4. Crumble. Mix in a bowl all the dry ingredients, add oil, milk and syrup, mix to a consistency where all the weight is evenly moistened. Direct wet mass is, it is not necessary.

5. Slightly grease the molds with oil, put the stuffing evenly on top of crumble and bake at 180C on the middle shelf until Golden brown. I have it took about 25 minutes, but all ovens are different – be careful. At the end of baking you can activate the grill so the crust was more crunchy.

Important. I often make crumble in the evening for Breakfast. In this case I baked it for 20 minutes, and in the morning I bring to readiness the remaining 5-10 minutes.

Serve with Greek yogurt or vanilla ice cream. In Greek yogurt (1 jar 125g), you can add a quarter of a vanilla pod or a half teaspoon of ground vanilla, a few drops of lemon juice and 1H.l. syrup (maple/artichoke). It turns out incredibly delicious!

Low carb sugar free pumpkin/apple pancakes

Traditional pancakes, I prefer to replace Apple, pumpkin, plum, carrot etc. the Principle of this recipe is similar to the cookie recipe, which I make based on Apple, carrot and pumpkinpuree.

Feature of such dishes is the inclusion in the diet more fruits/vegetables and the ability to cook them without added sugar due to the natural sweetness of fruit.

The recipe for pumpkin pancakes (about 20-25 pieces with a diameter of 8-10cm):


Whole wheat flour – 100-120 g of tsz or 50/50 wheat with buckwheat flour (General flour you can and should experiment, but then its scope may vary),

Milk 250-300 ml (any, but very tasty with coconut low-fat),

Puree of pumpkin – 300 g

Egg – 3 PCs.,

Coconut oil (you can substitute any vegetable oil that you like) – 2 tbsp.

Salt – 0,5 tsp,

Ground vanilla – 1 tsp or seeds of half a vanilla pod

Cinnamon – 3 tsp,

Ground ginger 0.5 tsp.,

Nutmeg – 0.5 tsp.,

Optional zest of half an orange and half a lemon.

Spices can add any of your own. Pumpkin is very good combination of cardamom and star anise, but I don’t use them.

How to do it.

1. Pumpkin puree.

Pumpkin wash, cut in half, remove the seeds (you can leave them and very tasty bake), put the skin down and bake in the oven without adding anything. Clean the pumpkin, you can either a tablespoon, scooping the flesh straight from the rind or hands to tear off the thin skin, it depends on the variety. After that the pulp need slenderite into a puree. If required can add water. Puree the consistency should resemble very thick cream.

Also, the pumpkin can be done steamed or saute in a small amount of water and then punch in a blender. I usually bake a lot of pumpkin and then use it to make completely different meals.

2. In a blender to send pumpkin all ingredients except flour, punch and gradually add flour. Consistency should be like yogurt.

Keep in mind that if you experiment with other types of flour, the quantity will be different, do not overdo it. It is better to add gradually and watch for consistency.

Ideally, let the dough stand for 15-20 minutes, stir and then bake. This is necessary in order to test the developed gluten, which makes pastry more elastic. But if you don’t have the time to bake immediately. Especially if you use flour without gluten.

3. Fry in a pan with good nonstick coating. The pan well to heat, and then fry on a medium heat. The first batch with a drop of oil, then on a dry pan.

On the first side to fry until the pastry top is not dry, and the pancake safely, it will be easy perevernutyi on the second side for 1-2 minutes until tender.

It is important each time to stir the dough before sending the crepe in the pan. If this is not done by the end of the bake the dough on the bottom will be very tough. Pancakes are different in texture.

4. Feed.

Insanely delicious to serve these pancakes with cream cheese/sour cream/Greek yogurt and nuts pecans/walnuts, a little watering them with maple syrup and sprinkled with cinnamon. Or hazelnuts with honey instead. Well, very tasty!

But most of all I love these pancakes warmed up. Usually bake a lot at once in the evening. Part frozenand part is heated in the oven in the morning and is served as described above)

The fact that my recipe is very little flour in this recipe and the pancakes turn out a bit first. But if you give them soak overnight, then reheated, they will be just perfect. High fruits and vegetables, at least flour. Like pancake, eat, and like or not;)

If you eat the pancakes right away, I recommend them after roasting bake for 5-7 minutes at 180C, but this is optional.

The recipe for Apple pancakes (about 20-25 pieces with a diameter of 8-10cm):

Everything is by analogy with a recipe for pumpkin pancakes, but instead of pumpkin puree, I use fresh sour-sweet apples, peeled carefully from the skin, veins and seeds, and spices, use salt, vanilla and cinnamon, plus a handful of raisins. Raisins can not put, but it turns out just incredibly cool!

That is, the ingredients for Apple pancakes will be as follows:

Whole wheat flour – 100-120 g of tsz or 50/50 wheat with buckwheat flour (General flour you can and should experiment, but then its scope may vary),

Milk – 300 ml (any, but very tasty with coconut low-fat),

Fresh peeled apples – 300 g

Egg – 3 PCs.,

Coconut oil (you can substitute any vegetable oil that you like) – 2 tbsp.

Salt – 0,5 tsp,

Ground vanilla – 1 tsp or seeds of half a vanilla pod

Cinnamon – 3 tsp,

A handful of raisins.

The cooking process is the same as the pumpkin pancakes (see above), all raisins should be put in the prepared dough is the latest and mix with your hands, but do not penetrate into the blender. It needs to remain whole.

Important. For this recipe you can make delicious waffles in a waffle iron if you have it;) it Turns easier and faster!

My favorite toppings for various cereals

Just porridge (any cereal) and the same mess, but with delicious toppings – are two big differences. Your duty of oatmeal each day can be different. And sweet and salty. With nuts, berries, cheese, avocado, poached egg and other ingredients.

In this post I will gradually spread your favourite combinations;)

Oatmeal with grilled banana (fry only ripe bananas on medium heat until brown) and dark chocolate.

For 1 serving I take about half a large banana or 1 small. Chocolate just a square. Ruble finely with a knife and sprinkle until porridge and banana hot.

Oatmeal with fresh Apple, cut into thin slices, raisins and roasted pecans. On top of a little sprinkle with cinnamon. Optionally, you can pour maple syrup.

Oatmeal crumble with vanilla sauce (you can make vegan, gluten free)

Crumble is something like an upside-down cake when the crumb of the dough is baked on top of the filling, not the bottom in the form of a cake. The traditional recipe for sweet and fatty for me, so I made some modifications, and it was the option of oatmeal and a minimum of oil and sweetener, but with high fruit. This is a super simple, quick and delicious Breakfast or dessert.

The ease of the recipe is that all ingredients can be put on the eyes, and will still be delicious. Sometimes cakes just from what is in the fridge, and it turns out a culinary masterpiece. Below I will talk about the technology and its perfect proportions of ingredients.

The dish consists of 2 layers: fruit/berry/vegetable & oat layer.

I recommend to bake it in ceramic or glass form in order to bring to the table, but not necessarily.

The bottom layer.

In this case, the filling is what was in the fridge. You can use any fruit/vegetables (carrot, pumpkin), fruits that like. Most importantly they wash very well, go through and clean that in the process of eating you or the inedible parts of the fruit.

I have 500g of black currant and a handful of blueberries, juice and zest of half an orange, 2 tbsp Jerusalem artichoke syrup.

Optionally, the filling can add some spice. Apples, pears, plums, pumpkin, carrots blends perfectly with the cinnamon. Berries (cherries, raspberries, blackberries, blueberries) are perfectly combined with vanilla. In the filling you can also add nutmeg, ground ginger, dried fruits, and nuts.

Frozen berries can not be defrosted. The extra juice will still evaporated in the cooking process.

If the filling is sweet enough, I recommend to sprinkle it with lemon juice, lime, orange. So the taste will be more complex and interesting. Currants, to my mind, very cool combined with orange juice, I used it.

Sweetener add 1st.l., stir and taste until the flavor will not be balanced for you.

The top layer (crumble).

I have about 200g whole grain blend of flakes “4 cereals”, 50g. buckwheat flour, handful of almonds, 3 tbsp butter, softened ghee (you can substitute vegetable with a neutral taste), 0,5 tsp ground vanilla zest and juice of half an orange, 2 tbsp syrup topinambur, a pinch of salt.

Important. First clean off with citrus zest, then squeeze the juice out of it. If you do the opposite – it will be very difficult)

Sometimes I add to oatmeal or 1 egg 100-150ml milk (coconut is very tasty), when I want a more uniform and dense layer crumble.

The cereals and the flour can use any. You can do without flour do. It is possible to grind the flakes smaller and add nuts/seeds/almond petals, lubie spices (cinnamon, vanilla, etc.). Everything is optional.

Mix in a bowl all the dry ingredients, add liquid and mix to a consistency where all the weight is evenly moistened. Direct wet mass is, it is not necessary, since it will impregnate the juice from fruits and berries in the cooking process.

Slightly smear the form with butter, put the filling, spread the crumble on top and bake at 180C on the middle shelf until Golden brown. I have it took about 25 minutes, but all ovens are different – be careful. At the end of baking you can activate the grill so the crust was more crunchy.

Important. I often make crumble in the evening for Breakfast. In this case I baked it for 20 minutes, and in the morning I bring to readiness the remaining 5-10 minutes.

Serve with Greek yogurt or vanilla ice cream.

In Greek yogurt (1 jar 125g), you can add a quarter of a vanilla pod or half a teaspoon of ground vanilla, a few drops of lemon juice and 1H.l. syrup (maple/artichoke). It turns out incredibly delicious!

Cold this crumble I also really like eating as a snack)
