Believe it or not but this very French sounding dish is in fact very much Russian. “Julienne” in French cuisine means a dish of very thin-cut fresh vegetables and obviously the opposite of well known dish in Russia that is made of heavy cream, cheese, meats or vegetables.
And as most of the traditional Russian dishes it’s fatty and heavy. So I decided to create my own very healthy, clean and easy to cook julien dish, which may suit any type of diets you may be on.
I use leeks and mushrooms for filling and instead of cream, cheese and other high cholesterol ingredients I use tofu.
I also made my small addition to the original recipe and added a gluten-free flour base so it’s easy to eat, and which also will prevent your dish from burning.
Amazing combination of these ingredients will pleasantly surprise you - no doubt!
