Beetroot, cashew and feta salads


Author: Aušra

Date:

Don’t know why but this autumn I’m hooked on beetroot. Every weekend I boil some beetroot 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.

Muffins with rhubarbs and walnuts

At last this hear I grew some rhubarbs. And baked this muffins in June, but they appear on my blog only now. Sorry 🙂 These muffins are soft and I recommendto bake them in paper forms. I sprinkled some with cinnamon mixture, some didn’t. My hubby decided that with cinnamon is better. And I, cinnamon lover, can’t disagree with him 🙂

I’m happy and proud. This cake is not just tasty but very cute 🙂 It was made for my daughter’s 5th birthday. But presenting it only now because somewhere at this time my blog is celebrating 3 year old birthday and at the same time I celebrated my birthday anniversary. But this year birthday was different – I didn’t do anything, just celebrated 🙂

Keptos vištienos salotos

Baked chicken salads

Very delicious and satisfying salads. Especially we liked that bell pepper is baked not fresh. I prepared these salads not once and tried with iceberg salad, and with salads form our garden (salads, rucola, sorrel). Every time it was perfect! And depending on vegetables amount you can prepare this salads for 6 or for 3 people. It’s up to you 🙂

Kiaulienos medalionai su Maggi Papyrus lapeliais bei sveikuolių salotos

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.
