Sometimes you need simple and easy-to-make food, sometimes just a garnish for  roasted meat or a kind of that. When I found these ingredients in my fridge I didn’t have any plans or recipes, so here is what I prepared from mushroom, rice, green onions and other ingredients.

Follow the photos shot by Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc S 🙂 

Boil the rice and leave for a while for soaking

Stew sliced mushroom and carrot in olive oil

[here is the picture of the stewed mushroom and carrot, which I forgot to shoot]


Put soaked rice over stewed stuff, keep it on low fire and stir it with wooden stick from time to time 

and then

Cut red, green and any-colour-you-wish bell peppers, green onions over the stewed rice and leave for couple of minutes in the pan on low fire and with closed cap.  When the dish is ready dress with salt and red pepper

Afterwards I had time to play with prepared stuff 😀


Rice – 400 gr

Mushroom – 100 gr

Carrots – 2 small pieces

Bell peppers – 3 pieces

Green onions – 100 gr

Olive oil – 2 tbs

Red pepper and salt to taste

We had quite a cold and rainy day in the capital of Georgia, today; so on my way home, very tired, I was thinking about simple and hot dish, suitable for one gloomy day.

A Rainy Day (shot from my car)

Here is what I have prepared.

First, bunch up these ingredients:

3 – Onions

6 – Mashed tomatoes or 150 gr ready-made tomato puree

4 – Potatoes

1.5  – water

100 gr – Vermicelli

3 cloves – garlic

3 tbs – corn oil

50 gr – coriander

Black pepper/salt to taste


Secondly, heat the saucepan, pour some oil in it and sauté diced onions until golden and soft. Then pour mashed tomatoes and keep stirring with wooden spoon on low heat. After boiling, add diced potatoes and water, stir carefully and bring all these to simmer.

Potatoes diced for soup

When potatoes are almost ready, add vermicelli in the saucepan, and keep simmering on low heat until potatoes and vermicelli are completely ready.

Finally, dress the soup with mashed garlic, chopped coriander and black pepper and salt to your taste.

Serve hot.

Cure for a rainy day


I hope tomorrow will be a sunny day, as we are having Wine Festival in Tbilisi, at Open Air Museum of Ethnography;  I was there last year  and enjoyed brilliant Georgian wine with my friends.  Many kinds of homemade and company-made wines are presented at the festival,  so the weather is of key importance for tomorrow.

Some red eggs were left after the Easter in the fridge, so I decided to mix up a kind of dressing and put these eggs in it.   I took seven red eggs, pilled them and sliced carefully.

For dressing, I took mayonaise, added some mustard and roughly chopped red hot peppers, tossed up the mixture well and put the eggs in it sliced beforehand.

Thus, you can taste a very simple, Eggstraordinary and spicy dish.


7 Red Eggs

400 gr mayonaise

1 tbs musturd

1 tbs roughly chopped red hot pepper

Still being inspired by hot dishes after touring in West Georgia, I put these hot red peppers in it

Bon appétit!
