Rabbit

Attention! The following information is not for children, vegans and nervous people! I like the game. This rabbit was running through the meadows to the United States of America, and then bought frozen at my favorite place on the planet – “Guido’s”…although I’m not less enthusiastic now from a supermarket “New Morning” (CT). This recipe was given to me by Asya. By the way, in the United States rabbit is not actually popular; and not served in restaurants.

Ingredients:

  • rabbit
  • 0,5 liters dry red wine
  • 0,5 liters fat broth
  • 2 anise stars
  • 4 cinnamon sticks
  • 4 red onions
  • 3 bay leaves
  • salt
  • pepper
  • olive oil (optional)

Classical lasagna for people keeping to a non classical diet (a gluten-, dairy- and eggs-free one)

As a twelve-year-old girl, I was on my way to London on a Ukrainian cruise ship, when I tasted lasagna for the first time in my life. The chèf there often cooked traditional Italian dishes, and it was on that ship where my love for Italian cuisine was born. And recently I’ve been given a pack of excellent lasagna sheets “NUTRI FREE” (gluten-, dairy- and eggs-free), which don’t even require any pre-cooking. To be frank, to make dairy-free bechamel sauce turned out to be quite a difficult process, but the outcome was beyond my expectations. So… this is my first lasagna, which I’m infinitely proud of.

A salad with chickpeas, cherry tomatoes and tahini

It has been the first time this year I cooked something new with chickpeas, apart from the usual meringue. For those who are still unaware what to do with chickpea brine, here I posted a meringue recipe (it’s mainly for those who don’t eat eggs). I spotted this very recipe on Veronika Belotserkovskaja’s web site. You may vary the number of all ingredients according to your own preferences, but nevertheless, the more tomatoes the tastier.

Vegan gluten free cinnabons

I have not been eaten anything more delicious recently. And it has passed a long time since my last posted recipe, so I decided to treat all of you with something special. I have been carrying out experiments with the cinnabons for the whole week. I have tried various premade mixtures too, but as a result I liked most the one, which is in the recipe below. You may try making the cinnabons with the other kinds of starch and flour, and then feel free to share your experience in the comments. Thank you!
