Looking for Russian recipes? Try your hand at a warming borscht or hearty beef stroganoff, or how about blinis for your next canape spread? We have loads of easy and hearty Russian recipes, all from home cooks like you.
This version of the classic dish of quick-fried steak with mushrooms shows how vegetables can be used to enhance and ‘stretch’ a modest portion of meat. The result is every bit as special as true stroganoff, and is more in keeping with today's taste for meals that are not dominated by meat.
An elderly lady residing in Turkey served this to a friend of ours while he was in that country several years ago. She has since passed away, but her recipe lives on. It is the best Borscht recipe I've ever enjoyed. Serve topped with soured cream, extra dill and chopped fresh tomatoes.
Quick and easy to cook, this version has half the fat of the much-loved traditional recipe. Try serving with mixed wild and plain rice.
Summer is the time when we can forget about tinned fruit and preserves, and can finally enjoy the full, rich flavour of fresh fruits. This is a great fruity, juicy sponge cake made from lots of real apricots with a gentle hint of honey. Fabulous for sweetening up mid-summer tea time!
Sweet Russian pastries made with a yeast dough and filled with cheese filling. You can use ricotta instead of the traditional farmers cheese (tvorog).
