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.

  • 2 tbsps. oil, better use neutral taste

Zucchini cake with tuna

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 🙂

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 🙂

White beans and dried tomato salads

Once I made these salads and it was something new. Maybe it tasted not so usual to us, but it was really good. And now I made these salads for four times and they still disappear very quickly. So I save the recipe here and recommend to try them you too.

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 🙂

Grainy curd and tomato salads

It’s almost summer so we could wait anymore for fresh vegetables from our own garden and started to by tomatoes, cucumbers and salads. Now we can eat salads for lunch and dinner. But I’m looking carefully to the future and seeking new ideas for great refreshing food. One of the findings is this salads. It looks very simple, but all ingredients are balanced and suits each other. And for the best it is so quickly prepared that you can make it for lunch – just chop vegetables in the morning and by some curd before going to the office. 😉
