Peanut Butter and Black Beans Chocolate Dough Balls

Idea came from chickpea cookie dough balls recipe and black bean brownies. Not too sweet, smooth and chocolate balls, great cooled or even frozen. For sweetener I used date syrup – it adds some sour taste, like in real dark chocolate.

Russian Beets, Carrot and Cheese Salad – Mistress

Salad Mistress – Lubovnitsa. There is three popular Russian (Soviet) salads in one – beets and nuts, carrot and raisins, cheese and garlic. In my opinion, once it was not enough space for all dishes on table and someone folded three salads in one. It turned out quite well. It’s still mayonnaise owned cuisine, but come on, don’t you love coleslaw? It’s crunchy and creamy with some heat and sweet. Good for BBQ party.

Roasted Beets and Ricotta Spaghetti

I wanted to try this long time ago. Russians love beets – most important part of borscht and vinegret (beet salad). But I never used it pasta meals or cakes. First thing that you can see – color, beautiful bold purple color. Taste a little sweet for me, but with sunny-side up egg on top it make great lunch. For this recipe store-bought, canned, boiled or roasted beets can be used, but I recommend roast it in foil for deep taste.
