Lentil and Corn Stew / Varivo od leće i kukuruza

I came up with this because I needed something to stuff into sort of tacos I was making but didn’t feel like waiting for 3 hours for beans to cook. Then I figured, why not just use lentils instead? I mean, it’s a legume and is done in 15 minutes. The outcome was just as hearty and tasty. Naturally, I felt like I’ve won at life. IMGP4409

Meanwhile, pick through lentils and rinse well in a colander. Then stir in lentils together with onion and carrot and saute for just a minute. Pour over tomato puree, add bay leaf, paprika, salt and pepper and cook on medium high for fifteen minutes, until lentils are cooked through, stirring occasionally and adding a bit of water if necessary. When lentils are cooked, add in corn and parsley, stir well and serve. IMGP4412


 

Ovo sam jelo smislila jer mi je trebalo neki filer za tacose koje sam radila, a nije mi se dalo čekati 3 sata da se skuha grah. Onda mi je sinulo da umjesto graha upotrijebim leću. Zašto ne? Također je mahunarka, a gotova je za 15 minuta. Rezultat je bio jako zasitan i ukusan. Naravno, odma sam se osjećala kao da sam pobijedila u životu.

 

SASTOJCI:

(Za 4 izdašne porcije / 4,50 kn po porciji / 18,00 za sve)

1 žlica maslinovog ulja (0,33 kn)

1 veliki luk (0,75 kn)

2 velike mrkve (0,50 kn)

4 češnja češnjaka (0,70 kn)

1 šalica leće (3,00 kn)

1 pakiranje od 500 g pasirane rajčice (5,00 kn)

1 lovorov list (0,10 kn)

1 žlica slatke paprike (0,50 kn)

½ žličice soli (0,01 kn)

½ žličice svježeg mljevenog crnog papra (0,10 kn)

1 limenka kukuruza (6,00 kn)

Pregršt svježeg peršina, sitno nasjeckanog (1,00 kn)

 

PRIPREMA:

Sitno nasjeckajte luk pa na jakoj vatri dinstajte na žlici ulja nekoliko minuta, dok ne omekša. Dodajte narezanu mrkvu i nasjeckani češnjak pa kuhajte dvije-tri minute. U međuvremenu, proberite leću, isperite u cjedilu pod mlazom vode i ubacite sa mrkvom i lukom na minutu. Onda umiješajte pasiranu rajčicu, lovorov list, papriku, sol i papar pa kuhajte na srednje jakoj vatri 15 minuta dok se leće ne skuha do kraja, uz povremeno miješanje i dodavanje malo vode po potrebi. Kada je leća gotova ubacite kukuruz i peršin, dobro sve promiješajte i poslužite.
