Salata de spanac proaspat / Fresh spinach salad, with cheese

Vorba multa, saracia omului. Propun sa ne dregem tranzitul intestinal cu verdeata. Dupa cantitatile considerabile de carne la gratar, bere, oua rosii si alte minuni, ne-ar sade bine cu o salata colorata si plina de fier.
De data aceasta va propun salata de spanac verde si proaspat cu rosii, branza de vaca, castravete si otet de mere. Un deliciu.

Se prepara in 10 minute. Spalati legumele.


Taiati rosiile, castravetii si ceapa dupa placul inimii. Apoi rupeti frunzele spalate de spanac si amestecati toate legumele cu branza taiata in cuburi, piper, sare, putin ulei si otet de mere.


Pofta mare!

In Romania we have a saying “Talk much, lose much”. So here I am with a fast forward salad recipe, a bowl filled with greens. After the Easter time when most Romanians consumed considerable quantities of barbecue dishes, beer, eggs, tomatoes and other wonderful and traditional dishes, I would loke to propose a change of course with a colorful salad.
We need fresh green spinach, tomatoes, cottage cheese, cucumber and apple vinegar. A true delight.

You can prepare it in 10 minute. Wash well all vegetables.


Cut the tomatoes, cucumbers and onions as your heart pleases. Then tear the washed spinach leaves and mix all vegetables with the diced cheese add pepper, salt, some sunflower little oil and vinegar.

Enjoy the spring!


Salata de fasole rosie / Red beans spring salad

Postul, fie ca este de Paste ori Craciun ori pt oricare alta sarbatoare, reprezinta o provocare. Nimeni nu poate nega acest lucru. Din pacate pt multi dintre noi aceasta curatire spiritual se transforma intr-un regim alimentar sau lipseste cu desavarsire. In acelasi timp, viata fara proteina animala, carne, lapte, oua, are si ea partile ei bune si mai putin bune. In toate articolele mele va fac marturisiri, de data aceasta va spun ca n-as putea sa devin niciodata vegetarian, dar am respect pt stilul de viata al fiecaruia.

Lasand vorbaraia deoparte, sa va prezint o reteta simpla incercata de mine pt prima oara. Avem nevoie de:

  • 500 gr fasole rosie (direct din conserva)
  • O legatura stufoasa de usturoi verde
  • O lingura ulei de masline
  • O lingurita otet
  • Sare si piper
  • putin rozmarin

Procesul tehnologic nu poate fi mai simplu de atat. Scoateti fasolea rosie din conserva si spalati-o bine sub jet de apa.

fasole r1

Spalati si usturoiul si taiati-l marunt. Amestecati aceste ingrediente cu sare si piper, ulei si otet si gata masa.

fasole r2

Fie ca e o cina fie ca e pranz, va veti bucura, sper eu, de o masa fara carne. Eu am servit-o cu mamaliga rece facuta cuburi.

Pofta mare!

English version:

Keeping the advent, whether for Easter or Christmas or any other holiday, is a challenge. Nobody can deny this. Unfortunately for many of us this spiritual cleansing turns into a diet or is missing from our lives. Meanwhile, the life without animal protein, such as meat, milk, or eggs, has both good and less good sides. In all my articles I am making confessions, this time I must tell you that I could never become a vegetarian, but I have respect for everyone’s lifestyle.
Leaving aside the chatter, let me show you a simple recipe I tried for the first time. We need:

  • 500 gr red beans (from the can)
  • Some green garlic
  • A tablespoon of olive oil
  • A teaspoon of vinegar
  • Pepper and salt
  • a pinch of rosemary

The process can’t be simpler. Take the canned red beans and wash it under running water. Wash the garlic and chop it finely. Mix these ingredients with salt and pepper, oil and vinegar and ready it is the salad, you lunch or dinner. You will enjoy it, or I sure hope so as it does well to you, this meatless meal. I served it with cold polenta cubes. Enjoy!
