Salads & Salad Dressings

Ingredients

  • 80 g feta cheese
  • 8-10 cherry tomatoes or 1 medium tomato
  • some lettuce leaves
  • 1 medium sized bell pepper
  • half a can pitted olives
  • Extra Virgin olive oil
  • black pepper, Italian herbs
    • Directions

      This salad is better served in a large glass bowl. Thoroughly rinse the lettuce leaves and tear them large enough.

      If you use cherry tomatoes, cut them into halves. Otherwise cut tomato into slices and then each slice cut in half again. Remove seeds from the bell pepper and cut into pieces large enough (about 1.5-2 cm). Cut feta into 1-1.5 cm cubes.

      In general when slicing the ingredients try to keep them all about the same size. Add half a can of olives to the salad and season with about one tablespoon of olive oil.

      Mix the salad well. Add some black pepper or Italian herbs just before serving.

Bring 1 liter of water to a boil in a high saucepan adding 1 teaspoon of salt.

Remove the saucepan from the stove and gradually add 3 tablespoons of baking soda stirring all the time. Bring the alkaline solution to a boil again. Immerse the products into it for 10-20 seconds, then remove with a draining spoon.

Rolled pancakes

Rolled pancakes

Breakfast & Brunch Dishes

Ingredients

  • 1 glass and 2 tablespoons flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 glass butter milk
  • 1 glass water
  • 1/5 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil

Directions

Pancake batter formula is (1+2) to 2.

1 cup +2 tablespoons flour for 2 cups of liquid.

For liquid you can use butter milk, yogurt, milk, or even just water. Only be sure to dilute thick butter milk with water. It is also advisable to dilute milk with water, because pancakes made with only milk burn. Measure flour and liquid with the glass of the same size.

If you use liquid with an acid – butter milk, yogurt or sour cream (at least one tablespoon for 2 glasses of water), you do not need to extinguish soda with vinegar. If it's fresh milk or water, add some vinegar or lemon juice.

Mix flour with eggs, salt and sugar (not more than 3 tablespoons otherwise the pancakes will burn). Gradually add liquid to the flour and whisk the batter so that there are no lumps. You can also pass the dough through a sieve to insure that there are no lumps. Then add baking soda and vegetable oil, whisk thoroughly and leave the batter for 15-20 minutes. Meanwhile heat the stove.

The most important thing in baking pancakes is to warm up the frying pan well, but not to overheat it. Rinse the frying pan under the water, place it on the stove. As soon as the water evaporates, the frying pan is hot enough.

The second important thing is heating the pan with oil. Pour in vegetable oil (less than a tablespoon). Spread it evenly over the surface of the pan, place the pan on the stove and count to 10. Then pour the oil out and quickly wipe the surface of the pan with a paper towel, removing the excess oil.

Take the batter with a ladle, pour it in one quick motion into the center of the frying pan and tilt it in different directions to spread the batter evenly over the entire surface. Then fry pancake on one side. When there are no damp spots on top, turn the pancake over. On the other side the pancakes are fried twice as fast.

Do not grease the pan every time. Do it every two or even three pancakes. Use the same paper towel you used to remove the excess oil.

You can put a small piece of butter over each pancake in the stack.

One more thing: if you fry pancakes on a gas stove, use a small burner. If you fry on a wide burner, they stick in the center.

Prepare any kind of filling: farmer cheese whipped with sugar and raisins, cooked and chopped meat with grilled onions, some jam ets. Place some filling on a pancake and roll it up.
