Bean, Olive and Caper Salad with Balsamic Reduction (vegan) / Salata od graha, maslina i kapara sa reduciranim acetom balsamicom (veganska)

This salad is really killing it, but is super easy and quick to make. The balsamic reduction takes things to a whole new level and I suggest you cook up a bigger batch and store any extras in the fridge for future recipes.

METHOD:

To make the balsamic reduction, add balsamic vinegar to a small saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for about 10 minutes, until thickened and reduced in volume. The reduction will thicken even more as it cools down.

While the balsamic vinegar is simmering, rinse beans, olives and capers under running water and leave to drain. Chop the olives into rounds. Peel and finely dice the red onion. Toss all of the ingredients together once the balsamic reduction cools down. Taste and adjust seasoning. Serve chilled.

Ova salata je mrak, a ujedno i jako jednostavna i brza za pripremiti. Reducirani aceto daje još onaj ekstra štih, a moja je preporuka da si svakako pripremite malo ekstra aceta da imate za buduće recepte, te ga u međuvremenu čuvate u frižideru.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 2 porcije / 8,09 kn po porciji / 16,17 kn za sve)

¼ šalice aceta balsamica (2,50 kn)

1 konzerva graha (5,00 kn)

½ šalice odkoštenih zelenih maslina (3,00 kn)

3 žlice kapara (3,00 kn)

1 mali ljubičasti luk (0,75 kn)

2 žlice svježeg sjeckanog peršina (1,00 kn)

2 žlice maslinovog ulja (0,66 kn)

Prstohvat soli (0,01 kn)

Dobar prstohvat svježe mljevenog crnog papra (0,25 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Pripremite reducirani aceto tako da aceto balsamico stavite u malu posudicu na jaku vatru i pustite da zavrije. Smanjite vatru, pa krčkajte desetak minuta, dok se ne zgusne i ne reducira. Imajte na umu kako će se aceto još dodatno zgusnuti kako se bude hladio.

Dok se aceto krčka, isperite grah, masline i kapare pod mlazom vode i stavite da se sve dobro ocijedi. Masline narežite na kolutiće. Luk ogulite i sitno nasjeckajte. Pomiješajte sve sastojke kada se reducirani aceto ohladi. Kušajte i prilagodite začine, te poslužite ohlađeno.
