Russian Movie Night

Our friends came to our house to eat and see a movie. We had a Russian theme and we started with awesome Borscht they brought with them.

After that we watched Battleship Potemkin. I was the only one who hadn’t seen it before. It was a great movie, so I’m glad I finally saw it.

Last, but not least we ate blini with mushroom salad, Cavi-art and cubed pickles.

I tried a blintz recipe from Kasviskeittiössä blog, and it was better than the one I have used before. I doubled the original recipe, and we didn’t have any leftovers. If you have more than four eaters or don’t serve a starter, I recommend doubling this doubled recipe.


5 dl soy or oat milk
25 g yeast
4 dl buckwheat flour
2 tbsp oil
2 tsp syrup

1 tsp salt
1 dl sparkling mineral water or beer

margarine or oil for frying

Heat the milk lukewarm. Dissolve yeast in it. Whisk in buckwheat flour, oil and syrup. Cover with a towel and allow to rise 2-4 hours. Stir in salt and mineral water/beer. Melt the margarine in a pan and add some batter to make a pancake. Fry on both sides until nicely browned. Serve with Russian style fillings, such as mushrooms, chopped onion, vegan sour cream and/or pickles.
