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.

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.

Salotos su sūriu ir česnaku

Salads with cheese and garlic

It was real experiment 🙂 Till now we didn’t try salads with cheese. And the dressing is with raw egg. To feel more save, I poured over an egg boiling water and took it out only after a few seconds. Then when I poured prepared dressing over salads it looked too much of it, but when we mixed everything it was really good. So if you like garlic and new flavours – try this 🙂

Sūrio tortas

Cheesecake

This year we met at home only with kids. So the preparation for the evening wasn’t much. This cake in all recipe sources got a lot of compliments. I agree with them – it’s really good and simple. I used 26cm cake form. And I really suggest you to warm the mascarpone and condensed milk mixture, because if you won’t do it you’ll get lumps when you pour gelatine (Then I had to put the mixture in a warm bath and wait till mixture warms and lumps dissolve).

Banana muffins

These healthy muffins are extremely moist and delicious.

Oatmeal with banana and nuts

This morning was cloudy so it was a good time to cook this oatmeal. My kids don”t like simple oatmeal (or I just think that I still didn”t learn to cook it tasty), so I decided to make a little bit sweet but still healty version. Banana gives mild sweetness and nuts adds some crunchy texture. In the original recipe walnuts are used, but we don”t like them so I changed them to hazelnuts. At the end my little one asked next time not to add nuts at all. So decide by yourself to use or not to use nuts in your oatmeal.
