Vegan ”Meat” Sauce / Veganski ”mesni” umak

This sauce is super tasty and very easy and convenient to make. Therefore, ideal for lazy people like me. 😀 It also fooled a bunch of omnivores into thinking they were having something meaty, so it might be a great option for someone who is transitioning into vegan lifestyle.

Everything in this sauce is finely diced, but don’t be fooled. I used a food processor to do all the work for me. Just keep all of the ingredients separated once you process them, as you’re going to keep adding them to the sauce gradually.

METHOD:

Wash, peel and run all veggies and mushrooms in a food processor to shred.Keep all of the ingredients separated. Add oil to a big pot and saute onion on high heat for a few minutes until slightly translucent. Throw in vegan butter, then gradually add in the mushrooms and briefly cook until their bulk reduces. Add fresh garlic, garlic powder, bay leaf, Hungarian and smoked paprika, basil,black pepper and salt.Stir and cook for about a minute so the spices release their aromas, then stir in the carrots. Let those cook to slightly caramelize before pouring in white wine. Cook for about five minutes until the alcohol evaporates. Add parsley, pour in tomato puree and water, then bring to a boil.

Once boiling, reduce heat to low and simmer with a lid cracked open for 30 minutes. Stir occasionally and if needed, add in a splash more of water. After 30 minutes add in frozen peas and cook for additional 5-10 minutes until peas are done. This sauce freezes and reheats great and will go awesome with pasta, rice, gnocchi or mashed potatoes.

Ovaj je umak jako ukusan, a veoma jednostavan za skuhati. Stoga je idealan za lijene ljude kao što sam ja. 😀 Također je i uspješno zavarao nekoliko svejeda da misle da jedu nešto mesno, pa bi bio dobra opcija i za nekoga tko prelazi na vegansku hranu.

Sve u umaku je fino nasjeckalo, ali nedajte se zavarati. Za sav posao zaslužan je moj multipraktik. Samo držite sve sastojke razdvojene nakon što ih usnitnite, jer ćete ih u umak dodavati postepeno.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 6 porcija / 6,78 kn po porciji / 40,66 kn za sve)

3 žlice suncokretovog ulja (0,30 kn)

1 veliki luk (0,75 kn)

2 žlice veganskog maslaca (2,00 kn)

500 g šampinjona (15,00 kn)

4 češnja češnjaka (1,00 kn)

1 žličica češnjaka u prahu (0,50 kn)

1 lovorov list (0,10 kn)

1 žlica slatke crvene paprike (0,50 kn)

1 žličica dimljene paprike (0,50 kn)

1 žličica sušenog bosiljka (0,50 kn)

1 žličica svježe mljevenog crnog papra (0,50 kn)

1 žličica soli (0,01 kn)

4 mrkve (3,00 kn)

½ šalice bijelog vina (5,00 kn)

2 žlice sušenog peršina (1,00 kn)

2 šalice pasirane rajčice (4,00 kn)

½ šalice vode (–)

2 šalice smrznutog graška (6,00 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Operite, ogulite, te usnitnite svo povrće i gljive u multipraktiku. Sve sastojke držite odvojenima. Stavite ulje u veliki lunac, pa na jakoj vatri par minuta dinstajte luk dok ne postane staklast. Dodajte maslac, pa postepeno dodajte gljive i kratko ih prokuhajte da im se smanji volumen. Sada ubacite svježi češnjak i onaj u prahu, kao i lovor, slatku i dimljenu papriku, bosiljak, papar i sol. Promiješajte i kuhajte minutu da začini otpuste svoje arome, pa umiješajte mrkvu. Pustite da se sve blago karamelizira prije nego podlijete vinom. Kuhajte oko pet minuta da alkohol ispari, a onda dodajte peršin, pasiranu rajčicu i vodu te pustite da zavrije.

Kada sve zavrije smanjite vatru i krčkajte sa odškrinutim poklopcem oko 30 minuta. Povremeno promiješajte, a po potrebi dodajte mrvicu vode. Nakon 30 minuta dodajte smrznuti grašak, te kuhajte još 5-10 minuta dok grašak ne bude gotov. Ovaj se umak super podgrijava i smrzava, a odlično paše uz tjesteninu, rižu, njoke ili pire krumpir.
