Fast vegan breakfast, Russian style oatmeal porridge

21.09.2016

So, that will be a really short post just with one picture. I got a new photo background as well as new fabrics so I just wanted to use them as soon as possible. And as to recipe, there is nothing difficult, there is more a story behind this rather than just a recipe.

Porridges… That thing is so common to russian people, I just can’t find needed words to explain this. Imagine this- if you live in Russia, you eat porridge almost everyday starting from early childhood, and you know so many different kinds of porridges that you may solely write a cookbook dedicated only to porridge. Just listen: buckwheat, rice, millet, oatmeal, semolina, corn, einkorn, and there are different way of cooking those porridges as well! For example, it is common to eat buckwheat (and as far as I know, Russia is one of several countries where people are used to buckwheat, it is not popular in Europe or USA at all, if I am wrong, just correct me) with milk and sugar as porridge or eat it as a garnish to meat patties:)

I wanted to say that for long time. Here is Russia we got lots of proverbs about porridge: ” Too much butter won’t spoil the porridge”, ” The porridge is good, but my plate is so small”, “You can’t fed a Russian man without porridge”, “Shi (Russian soup) and porridge- this is our food”. It is of course difficult to translate proverbs but it is easy to understand that porridge is really important for us and is connected with our history (and fairytales!)

Chocolate vegan banana bread

19.09.2016

Oh, I am really happy to write again here. So much time without photos and food cooking. Ofc I cooked a lot but the summer was so busy and so great that we got too much other things to do. I left my job, got married, we visited Morocco and Sahara desert, got a trip around Russia, lived in a countryside for a month, learned so many things together with Daria! And even I spent really not much time making photos, but I tried to learn new and check new masterclasses as well as food blogger pro. As I said, we spend some time, a month or even more at the countryside where Daria mother lives all the time and we learned lots of things in terms of growing vegetables, berries, making procurings for winter, and so on. We made tons of canned berries jams like black currants, rasperries, gooseberries jams as well as some amazing salted cucambers and tomatoes, mmm… We even tried making salted canned watermelon! That was an amazing experience. I also created some new photo backgrounds and I really like them and you may check a new one on the photos below.
