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.

  • peppers
  • 2 tbsps. oil, better use neutral taste

Pasta Puttanesca

Quick and easy dish. That’s what I need for supper. I liked that there is no cheese. But I don’t know about my hubby. He is the cheese lover, but eating this dish he didn’t mentioned cheese. So I don’t know he was satisfied with the meal or just tired repeating that he needs cheese 🙂 Any way – the dish is good and classic.

Sausage stew

Very simple but still effective stew. Especially good when you have to feed your family with only five sausages.

Crepes stuffed with broccoli and cheese

I’m very excited when the recipe which I chose to prepare is admitted 110 percents. I wanted to make these crepes all week long, but all week I had no time to spend in the kitchen. And only this weekend the time has come 🙂 I’m very glad that I made only half portion because if there were more than four crepes I couldn’t stop eating. The filling is so light, with the gentle taste of broccoli and very nice taste of cheese. My hubby said he wasn’t hungry but ate one crepe and was very excited 🙂 The next time I will not make our usual crepes with cheese filling, but give a little bit more time and make these crepes.

Chili con carne

Chili con carne

Mexican minced meat and bean chilli. Can be prepared very quickly. We were afraid that beans will blanket out other ingredients, but we were wrong and I am glad about that. We wanted something hot, and we got it 🙂

Cottage cheese and boiled potato bake

Potatoes and cottage cheese – it’s always a great company. So why not to combine them in to a bake. It can be prepared within a few minutes. I found this recipe in Russian magazine about child-caring, but significantly changed by our observations: original recipe asks to slice the potatoes, but we prefer grated because it distributes better; original asks to pour more milk, we prefer the more eggs, and this bake comes out stronger. For us our experimentations came out super tasty. So, honestly, I urge you to try it too 😉
