Burokėlių sriuba su malta mėsa

Beetroot soup with minced meat

Easy but substantial soup. Because of vinegar you can feel mild sourness, so you better pour vinegar not by milliliters but by your taste. And I can say one more thing – I’ve tasted delicious soup like this long time ago.

Burokėlių, anakardžių ir fetos sūrio salotos

Beetroot, cashew and feta salads

Don’t know why but this autumn I’m hooked on beetroots. Every weekend I boil some beetroots and through the week I incorporate them in our dishes. And then story repeats. When I wanted for dinner something light, I prepared these salads. By the way, this recipe in the book is called carpaccio, but I think it’s more salads, and the name is more usual and not so fancy 🙂 . Family girls enjoy them, the big boy ate them and just said that more balsamic vinegar would be better, and the little boy as always, prepared some theater and then ate them, just without enjoyment. So I remember these salads as they are fit for girls 🙂 And I prepared very similar salads with hazelnuts, and they were very good too. So as always – don’t be afraid to experiment and correct ingredients by your refrigerator or cupboard products.

Burokėlių ir tuno salotos

Beet and tuna salads

One more salads that are very good in autumn or in winter or anytime while don’t have any fresh greens. You can mix everything in a bowl, but I think it’s beautiful and more quick to serve them layered in plates. The next day I prepared them without tuna, and they got a lot of compliments from my kids.

Tortilijų ritinėliai su mėsa ir pupelėmis

Tortilla rolls with meat and beans

This dish was prepared very long time ago. I even thought to delete photos because I couldn’t find from which book I chose it. But accidentally this week I found it, so in hurry to put it in here. In spite I prepared this dish long time ago, I still remember that it is quick and very easy. So suits for quick dinner perfectly.
