Pancakes with nettles

One of the culinary nightmares of my childhood was nettles. In the spring, my family forced me to drink the water in which the nettles were boiled (disgusting for a child), on the principle "it has iron, mother!" And to eat what they thought was a delight: eating nettles with polenta and egg yolks. . For years I endured and I didn't think I would ever be able to see this plant again without the sequelae. As the post begins you wouldn't expect a happy ending, would you? :))

Well, I don't know how and when exactly it happened (I think I gave them another chance and gave myself another chance), but I've been addicted to nettles for a few years. Not only in the spring, I like them so much that I freeze them and enjoy them for a few more months, after the season is over.

So, nettles to be in this period, that I have enough ideas. I told you last year about the classic nettle food, creamy and fine. Now I have all sorts of other ideas: meatballs with potatoes, spinach and nettles, nettle pie, pancakes filled with nettle and cheese puree, or nettle pancakes. For pancakes you can use one of the recipes I have told you over time: simple pancakes or pancakes with urda. Once you have decided, add to the composition nettles boiled for a few minutes in salted water (maximum 5 minutes, to keep that wonderful green), cooled and coarsely chopped.

All you have to do is fry small pancakes, and as you take them out, put a thin slice of butter between them. For an even tastier dish, when you eat them put over a tablespoon of fermented cream.

How to make rice in a pressure cooker

Put the rice and water in the pressure cooker. One and a half cups of water are used for one cup of rice. Add salt.

Put the lid on and let it simmer for 4 minutes. Turn off the heat and leave for another 10 minutes, without releasing the pressure from the pot.

After 10 minutes you can open the lid, pass it a little with the fork, so that the grains peel off from each other, put a piece of butter and it is ready.

Obs. The cooking time for rice is not always the same. It is known that wild rice and brown rice need a longer period to boil. It takes about 20 minutes for the pressure cooker to be ready. In addition, the amount of water used will increase. Use 3 cups of water to one cup of rice.

Spring has come, fresh greens have appeared, so we start eating healthier.


8 weights of nettles
150-200 ml milk
100 g sour cream for cooking
2 tablespoons olive oil
4-6 cloves crushed garlic or cut into very small cubes
1 small-medium onion finely chopped

If we fast, we replace milk and sour cream with organic rice milk.
Wash the nettles well in several waters, then boil them in boiling salted water for 5-6 minutes.

After this interval, drain them and chop them very finely. Saute finely chopped onion until soft, then add the garlic and sauté for about 30 seconds.

Add the nettles, sour cream and milk and pepper to taste and boil until the liquid drops, stirring quite often.

If we want a more pronounced taste of garlic, we can put 2 cloves of crushed garlic at the end, mix until it is homogenous and serve with an egg or, as such, with polenta.

Fresh spinach dish

We can't eliminate it, or forget about fresh spinach this spring. Especially for women, children and young people during puberty & # 8230I actually recommend it to everyone & # 8230I went to the market yesterday and took a bag full of spinach & # 8230So I thought of making a simple, traditional food, just like that how did my mother & # 8230With a little rice, with wild spring and new taste, with lots of spinach green, with fresh larch aroma, next to a country egg “eyes” & # 8230a goodness & # 8230When I was little, because I I liked spinach, I always said that it is one of the few dishes that "slips too fast on the neck" & # 8230good for good, obviously & # 8230Now now with the "talk", & # 8230to get ready for work & # 8230

Ingredients (8 servings)

· 4 - 5 tomatoes (or 3- 4 tablespoons tomato paste)

· 1 green larch link (I had frozen)

Method of preparation

& # 8211 Choose spinach, keep only healthy, green leaves and wash in as much water as possible (3- 4).

& # 8211 Leave a larger bowl of water on the fire, and when the water boils, gradually add the spinach and cook for about 2-3 minutes.

& # 8211 The scalded spinach is removed in a sieve for draining.

& # 8211 Meanwhile, prepare the other ingredients, respectively: clean and wash the vegetables, onion, green garlic, fresh greens are cut into small pieces, and the tomatoes are peeled and cut into small cubes.

& # 8211 When the spinach has cooled enough to be manageable, squeeze a little between the hands to drain well and then cut as desired. (I cut it smaller).

& # 8211 Put the onion, green garlic and oil in the cooking pot and let it simmer for a few minutes, until the onion starts to soften a little.

& # 8211 When the onion has softened, add the spinach, which is kept on the fire for a few minutes, stirring from time to time, until it hardens a little.

& # 8211 Over the onion and spinach add the previously washed rice, mix, salt, and when all the juice has dropped add the hot water in which the spinach was scalded, little by little, as the food boils.

& # 8211 When the rice is almost cooked, add the tomatoes and leave the food on medium heat until they are cooked, then add the finely chopped garlic cloves.

& # 8211 The spinach meal is ready when all the ingredients are cooked and it has dropped enough.

& # 8211 When the food is ready, season with salt to taste and add finely chopped greens (dill and larch).

& # 8211 Optional (I just did it for myself, one), eggs can be boiled in spinach: make “nests” in the food with the help of a spoon, in which the broken eggs are placed (as for egg eyes) carefully and patiently and then cook the food cover (with the lid) over very low heat until the egg has the desired consistency.

  • The spinach dish is served according to both hot and cold preference, we just like it with “eye eggs” (either prepared separately or prepared directly in the spinach dish), green garlic and fresh leurda finely chopped and sprinkled on top.

-If you do not use all the water in which you scalded the spinach, do not throw it away, as it is rich in vitamins and minerals, it can be consumed instead of water.

What is brown rice

Considered a symbol of life and fertility, rice is not only one of the main, essential cereals in the diet of people everywhere (but especially in Asia and Africa), but also the third most cultivated food in the world, after sugar cane. and corn.

Rice is the seed of the herbaceous plant &ryquoOryza sativa & rdquo (& icircn in the case of Asian rice) or & bdquoOryza glaberrima & rdquo (African rice), both main types of rice belong & acircnd to the Gramineae family.

Healthier than white rice (rice that has undergone refining processes and the removal of layers of brown rice seeds), brown rice has a much higher fiber, protein and vitamin content than white rice.

The history of rice is a long one, given, according to some writings, more than 10,000 years ago. The rice originated in China, in the Zhujiang River area (also called Pearl) and was later spread to the rest of Asia and introduced to Europe and America. Some Chinese legends attribute the cultivation of rice to Shennong, the legendary emperor of ancient China and the inventor of Chinese agriculture.

& Icircn nowadays, about 90% of the world's rice production comes from Asia, the main producing countries being China, India, Bangladesh, Indonesia, Vietnam.

Rice is one of the main foods in the No. 7 Oshawa diet, a diet considered effective in many ailments and diseases. This diet includes, in addition to rice, wheat, buckwheat and millet, salt. Cereals can be prepared in any desired way (boiled, baked, in the form of porridge, bars or p & acircini).
