Roasted Tomato and Horn Pepper Salsa (vegan) / Šalša od pečenih rajčica i paprika roga (veganska)

You know that summer is slowly winding down when ripe juicy tomatoes are on every corner. I am absolutely filling up my freezer with this salsa so I can eat it for the whole year, because it’s delicious and super easy to make. The oven does all the work for you and I find the whole meal prep less daunting when I work in smaller batches. Later on you just need to boil some pasta, heat up the salsa on a splash of olive oil and dinner is served.

The recipe below is an approximation when it comes to ingredient amounts, but this combo of tomatoes and sweet horn peppers works best with my taste buds at the moment.

5 large onions (0.50 EUR)

METHOD:

Preheat oven to 200°C. Wash and halve tomatoes. Halve peppers and discard stems and seeds. Quarter the onions with skins intact. Break garlic bulbs into cloves, but leave the skins on them. Arrange tomatoes, peppers, onion chunks and garlic cloves on a baking tray in a single layer. Generously sprinkle with salt and pepper and drizzle with olive oil. Bake for about 1 hour, until everything is slightly charred.

Allow to cool a bit before peeling and discarding onion and garlic skins. Blitz everything in a food processor to desired consistency and portion out if you wanna freeze for later. This sauce is fantastic on its own, served over pasta. But it’s also very customizable and you can definitely add in any other meat or veggies. It’s also a superb base for a homemade tomato soup and will make a homemade pizza taste like heaven.

Znate da se ljeto polako primiče kraju kada su zrele i sočne rajčice na svakom koraku. Planiram dubkom napuniti naš frizer ovom šalšom kako bi ju mogli jesti cijele godine, jer je prefina i jako jednostavna za napraviti. Pećnica će za vas odraditi većinu posla, a meni je cijeli pothvat sasvim lagan kada ovu šalšu radim u manjim turama. Kasnije trebate samo skuhati tjesteninu, podgrijati šalšu na malo maslinovog ulja i imate spreman ručak.

Recept u nastavku je poprilično odokativan što se tiče količine sastojaka, ali  ovakav omjer rajčica i slatke paprike roge nekako najabolje odgovara mojem ukusu u ovom trenutku.

SASTOJCI:

(Za oko 15 porcija / 2,32 kn po porciji / 34,87 kn za sve)

20 velikih rajčica šljivara (15,00 kn)

5 velikih crvenih paprika roga (5,00 kn)

5 velikih glavica luka (3,75 kn)

2 glavice češnjaka (4,00 kn)

2 žličice soli (0,02 kn)

2 žličice svježe mljevenog crnog papra (0,50 kn)

10 žlica maslinovog ulja (6,60 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Zagrijte pećnicu na 200°C. Operite i raspolovite rajčice. Raspolovite paprike i bacite sjemenke i peteljke. Raščetvorite luk skupa sa ljuskom. Razlomite češnjak na češnjeve, ali također ostavite ljuske. Rasporedite rajčice, papriku, luk i češnjak po protvanu za pečenje, posipajte solju i paprom, te pokapajte maslinovim uljem. Pecite oko 1 sat, dok se sve lagano ne zapeče.

Ostavite da se sve malo ohladi prije nego što ćete oguliti i baciti ljuske sa luka i češnjaka. Sve propulsirajte u multipraktiku do željene konzistencije te rasporedite u porcije prije nego što ćete zamrznuti za kasnije. Ova šalša je fantastična sama za sebe sa tjesteninom, no također je i veoma prilagodljiva te joj možete dodati razna mesa i druga povrća. Ujedno je i izvrsna baza za domaću juhu od rajčica, a sa njom će vam domaća pizza ispasti savršeno.
