Pillaf from Rustam


Author: Aušra

Date:

This is my favourite pillaf recipe. After I found it I don’t seek any new anymore. I like it because it doesn’t use tomato sauce or ketchup, because real tomatoes are used. But if you like ketchup, you can use it anyway. Sometimes I adapt recipe for my hubby and add only small carrot, sometimes I don’t add bell pepper at all. But sometimes I do everything by recipe, because I think proportions given are just perfect.

Ryžių salotos su tunu

Rice salads with tuna

Very simple salad which you can prepare in the morning for lunch. I think they are more autumn or spring salads, but when we need something to take to work for lunch – it’s perfect, even in the summer.

Rice cakes with vegetables

Last weekend, while my children were sleeping in the afternoon, I wanted to bake something sweet. But I was angry at my self, because I didn’t know what can I bake. So I started to browse in my computer looking for something suitable. And I saw these cakes. I decided to make them. I know, that they’re not sweet, but I had everything they needed in my fridge. I just didn’t make baskets out of rice, just did two layer cakes. And they tasted very good. At first I was afraid that my hubby will miss meat in them, but I was wrong 🙂

Chicken and rice salads with curry

I decided to prepare something new for our already boring quick menu. This dish is very quick, if you do like me – boil chicken a day before. My hubby commended. I asked him maybe the dish is so good because almost all the week we ate what we had on hand? But he assured that no and ate almost everything, leaving just a few bites for my next day lunch… You can enjoy these salads and cold, and warm.

Chilli stew with rice

My hubby likes hot dishes, so one day I decided to indulge him. After eating this dish he was very happy and with the smile in his face 🙂 He even wasn’t disturbed that in this stew was corn, that he really doesn’t like. Tomatoes brought the right freshness. I think that this dish is really very good balanced.

Kids rice soup with green peas

My kids are tired of eating salads 🙂 so I decided to prepare them soup – simple, only with a few ingredients as kids like this. Also I had some fresh peas in a fridge, and for more satiety I added small turkey meatballs, but they are really optional.
