This takes some time, but is well worth the effort. I use a food processor. It is a hearty soup, great on a cold winter night. Serve hot, topped with soured cream.

This is a Russian beef stroganoff recipe made with soured cream and is much more authentic than a lot of the versions out there with cream of mushroom soup! Try it and you'll taste the difference. Serve with mash or pasta.
Stuffed cabbage rolls is a favourite dish in many Russian homes. Cabbage leaves are precooked and stuffed with a minced meat and rice filling. You can substitute minced turkey for a lighter version.
Kulich is a sweet yeast bread, similar to panettone, that is traditionally baked in Russia for Easter. But you can enjoy it anytime! It can be glazed or left plain. You can bake the bread in large coffee tins (like the ones you get from a cash n carry) so they keep their traditional shape.

One of my family’s most favourite salads, and requested often. Healthy, vegetarian and low carb makes this is great option, anytime.
