Buckwheat salads for lunch


Author: Aušra

Date:

Tomorrow is Monday… Lately half of Sunday I usually spend preparing meals for the coming week. And the best start of the week – a light and healthy lunch. These salads we prepared a few times and I can say that we like it with boiled raw buckwheat, but you can use what you have, or what you like more. Here I present you our version.

Yields: 2 servings
Calories: 450 kcal / serving

Ingredients:

  • 150 g buckhwheat, raw

  • 100 g lettuce(I used 60 g Iceberg lettuce and 40 g spinach leaves)
  • 2 eggs, hard boiled
  • salt
  • peppers
  • 2 tbsps. oil, better use neutral taste
  • 2 tbsps. natural apple cider vinegar (or by your taste)

Directions:

Krabų lazdelių salotos su pomidoru

Crab sticks salad with tomato

In my family I guess only I eat these crab sticks. So while my kids were still sleeping and my hubby was already working, I tried some recipes with them. This recipe is very quick and easy. Especially tasty with homegrown tomatoes 😉 I enjoyed them on toasted pumpkin bread (that’s why my bread is so yellow). Hope you will like them too!

Vištienos ir grikių troškinys

Chicken and buckwheat stew

Sad, but true… I have to go to work again… After more than two years of vacations. But let’s look at everything from another point of view – I have to think what to take to work for lunch and what to prepare for very quick dinner. Also from now on I can bake more sweets because to drink coffee gathers many girls 🙂 But let’s talk about this dish. I boiled buckwheats yesterday, so today I made everything in 15 minutes. You can call this dish stew or cereal with chicken 🙂 We’re not used to eat buckwheats with meat, but this new taste was good 🙂 Just my hubby wanted grated cheese on top and maybe some chili 🙂

Buckwheat and cottage cheese pancakes

I had a lot of cooked boiled buckwheats after my daughter dinner, so I decided to try something new. And I was very glad when my hubby said that it tasted very good!

Zucchini cake with tuna

Very delicious cake. I never have a chance to photo it because every time it disappears very quickly. It”s so juicy, not dry at all. And my husband can eat almost half of the pie at once 🙂

Šiltos makaronų salotos su fetos sūriu

Warm pasta salads with feta

The weather is getting cold so I was looking for the warm food, but I didn’t want anything heavy so I suggest you to try this pasta dish with vegetables. It’s satisfying but refreshing at the same time (because of tomatoes).
