This stew is very simple and cassual. Here pitas are as turbo feature 🙂 But they are not necessary. Just we love them and time after time I bake them. Next time we will make some yoghurt sauce with seasoning. Then the dish would be perfect. And this time we thought about the sauce only in the end.

1 cup = 237 ml

  • For whole wheat pitas:
  • 2 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup warm water

  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. oil

  • 300 ml vegetable stock

  • Preparing pitas:
  • Dissolve yeast in warm water. Gradually add half flour and mix well. Cover sticky dough with food film and put in a warm place for 30 minutes.
  • Mix in oil, salt and the rest of flour. Knead dough 8-10 minutes, then roll into a ball and put in a bowl, coated with oil. Put in a warm place to rise for 2-3 hours.
  • Preheat oven and baking tray to 225°C. Devide dough in to 10-12 balls. Roll each to 3-4mm thickness.

  • Put some stew into pita and serve. Enjoy!

Pork medallions in Maggi Papyrus with healthy salads

Next to the pork medallions I served some healthy salads which I saw yesterday in one of my magazines. It was simple and almost everything was already in my refrigerator. We enjoyed them a lot, even my kids ate them (with some motivation – some candies in front of them, which were kids if they eat all salads). Me and my hubby agreed that these salads would be grate even without meat, because roasted sunflower seeds were so good in these salads. So we’ll be making them soon for sure again.

Balsamic green bean salads

Spring is near so we should start cleaning our freezers. We love green beans and every year I prepare a lot of them for the winter. But almost always the best dish for me and my daughter is fried green beans with butter and bread crumbs. Until now! Maybe this delicious salads are very tasty just for me and my hubby, because dressing has a really strong taste. But kids also eat these salads, just amount is not very big 🙂

Navy pork

It’s pork braised in home made tomato sauce. I prepared this already two times. The first time I cut pork in thicker chunks, the second – in thinner. My hubby said that the second time was better. By the way, be careful with seasoning – when tomato liquid evaporates, the taste becomes stronger.

I must confess – I have never ate the real kibinai ? But this weekend we had some guests who likes kibinai a lot, and they said that these kibinai are very good (kibinai also agreed with guests “cause they disappeared from the plate very fast ? )
