ABOUT THE BEST PIZZA

Hello baking nation,

I am not going to talk about you or me or any of us in this moment.

All I want to talk is this LOVE called Garlic Spinach Pizza.

Yes, even if life is not the most certain in this moment and we are moving towards “new inside life” I need to share this recipe. It will bring you so much happiness. And JOY! Call me crazy, but JOY is all we need.

Or maybe I should called Dostoevski who said: “Beauty will save the world.”

Of course, it will. That is why I am here. Make me now! – says Garlic Spinach Pizza.

Since arguing with food is not an optional and rational thought yet, I suggest we move into the action mode and make it happen.

INSTRUCTIONS

This is my favorite pizza dough. I made this recipe about billion times and will continue.

Add 1 cup of flour and mix with a spoon.

Then add 3/4 cup of flour and keep mixing

Since I know you are kind and peaceful human being you will start using your hands at this point.

Calmly and surely. (don’t be afraid, you need to practice)

Knead dough until smooth, adding more flour by TBSP. You will know. If you add 2 TBSP of flour and

Making the best Zucchini Lasagna

Ingredients

6 large zucchini

1 jar Catelli, fine herbs (640 ml)

6 cloves garlic, chopped

Add lightly salt and let it sit for 15 minutes.

Then, just blot it dry with a paper towel.

Optional: Grill the zucchini for 2 minutes on each size. (I don’t because I don’t mind if zucchini is a bit watery)

Meanwhile add into a large saucepan marinara sauce, 1 jar Catelli-fine herbs (640 ml),

chopped Italian parsley, chopped red peppers, garlic, oregano, salt and pepper.

Bring to boil.

While your red sauce is heating, prepare ricotta filling.

Enjoy and share.

Storage Mashed Potatoes

Keep in the fridge covered for up to 2 days.

NOTE

Never drop potatoes into boiling water. NEVER!

Always use cold water to cook potatoes.

WHY?

Because if you use boiling or hot water the outside of the potatoes will be cooked faster than the insides and

you will have unevenly cooked potato. If you keep boiling until fully cooked to the core, the outside will start to flake apart.

So, you are not going to win. The only way to have perfect cooked potatoes is to use COLD WATER.

ALSO VERY IMPORTANT

How to know if potatoes are cooked?

Use FORK!

If the fork slides easily all the way to the center, the potatoes are done.

Easy Cabbage Rolls

Ingredients

2 large heads of sour cabbage (about 2.5 kg or 5 to 6 lbs)

900 gr or 2 lbs ground beef ( or use mix of ground pork and ground beef)

1 large onion, minced

1/2 cup brown rice, cleaned and washed

1 tsp ground black pepper, 1 tsp salt

can of crushed tomatoes (28 oz)

INSTRUCTIONS

Remove and separate cabbage leaves from head.

Cut the thick root on the back of the each leaf because of the easier folding.

Then, wash them in cold water or follow the notice below. (Please do not skip this step.)

Very Important: Immerse all cabbage leaves in cold water for 1/2 hour or longer because you need to wash off the salt so cabbage rolls are not too salty.

For step by step instructions, please click this LINK

Prepare MEAT FILLING for Cabbage Rolls

Mix thoroughly ground beef meat, 1/2 cup brown rice, onion, 1 tsp salt and ground black pepper.

For this recipe use the biggest pot you have.

Cover the bottom with 6 to 7 cabbage leaves.

Your next step is to make cabbage rolls.

Take one by one cabbage leaf and on each put the meat filling, roll cabbage rolls and place them on top of cabbage leaves.

how to make sour cabbage rolls – 5 day meal planner

If you are wondering how much filling to use for each rolls…

I used about 1 TBSP for bigger rolls or 2 tsp for small rolls.

Repeat until all the filling has been used.

I made 30 cabbage rolls.

If you need visual instructions, please check the link – Practice making the cabbage rolls

Your last step is to cover sour cabbage rolls with remaining cabbage leaves.

Pour the cold water above the rolls.

Again, be sure the rolls are covered with water.

At the beginning cook on a high temperature until water boils.

Then continue cooking at medium temperature for about 3 hours.

IMPORTANT: DURING THE COOKING OF 3 HOURS KEEP ADDING THE HOT WATER, so cabbage rolls

are always covered with liquid.

After 3 hours add 28 oz can of crushed tomatoes and 1 TBSP of salt. (you can add less or more salt, taste to your liking).

Continue cooking for another 15 min…and then remove from heat.

My starting point is red, happy and healthy cherry tomatoes. (use as many as you want to)

Top tomatoes with powerful cucumber.

After cucumber is happily inside of a jar add healthy and chopped lettuce.

Then top the lettuce with Greek goddess called FETA CHEESE.

Seal the jar and refrigerate.

You just made the best healthy, happy office lunch for your Monday or any day of the week.

Yes, you made 5 star Salad in a Jar.

Be kind and share.

IMPORTANT FOR THIS RECIPE:

  • Chose firm veggies at the bottom of jar that wan’t soak up the dressing. (carrots, cherry tomatoes, kale, celery, chickpeas…)
  • Pack the layers as tightly as possible. Why?

Because the salad will stay longer fresh if there is less air between layers.

  • Finish it off with salad greens. (Romaine lettuce, spinach, baby arugula…)

By topping with greens you will create moisture barrier that prevent entire salad becoming saggy.

  • If you are including cheese or nuts add them last.
  • In case you want to use hard boiled eggs, tuna or other delicate ingredients, please add them

the day you want to eat salad.
