Creamy Shiitake, Bean and Potato Miso Soup (vegan) / Krem miso juha od shiitaka, graha i krumpira (veganska)

Everyone who knows that I’ve ordered a huge bag of dried shiitake mushrooms from Chinese section of Ebay thinks I am nuts, but hey, I ate those mushrooms and I’m still alive. Of course, the main reason for this is that they were super cheap. And I have inevitable faith in humanity. I’m certain that this could have gone either way, though.

(Yields 6 servings / 0.36 EUR per serving / 2.16 EUR for all)

1 cup cooked Cannellini beans (0.20 EUR)

6 medium sized potatoes (0.40 EUR)

6-8 shiitake mushrooms, dried or fresh (0.40 EUR)

6 cups vegetable broth (0.40 EUR)

Good pinch of salt (0.01 EUR)

Good pinch of freshly ground black pepper (0.02 EUR)

METHOD:

Wash, peel and chop up all the veggies. If using dried shiitake, soak them in warm water to soften, then roughly chop up. If using fresh shiitake, you can chop those up right away.

Add the oil to a deep pot, then sauté the onion for a few minutes until slightly translucent. Add in garlic and cook for a minute until fragrant, then add in the beans, potatoes, mushrooms and their soaking liquid, veggie broth, salt, pepper and red pepper flakes. Bring to a rolling boil, reduce heat and simmer with a lid cracked open for 30 minutes. After 30 minutes remove the soup from heat.

Dissolve miso paste in half a cup of cooking liquid and stir it into the soup. Be sure that the soup is off heat at that point. You don’t want miso to boil because it will then lose all its health benefits from the good bacteria. Stir the dissolved miso back into the soup together with sesame oil. Pulse the soup with immersion blender until creamy. Taste, adjust seasonings and serve. Optionally, sprinkle with strips of dried seaweed.

Svi koji znaju da sam od kineske enklave na Ebayu naručila sušene shiitake gljive misle da sam poludila, ali evo, mogu sa zadovoljstvom prijaviti da sam pojela gljive i preživjela. Naravno, razlog za taj avanturizam je primarno to što su gljive bile stvarno jeftine. A i ja imam nepokolebljivu vjeru u čovječanstvo. Iako, bila sam otvorena za sve ishode. 🙂

SASTOJCI:

(Za 6 porcija / 2,69 kn po porciji / 16,11 kn za sve)

2 žlice suncokretovog ulja (0,20 kn)

1 luk (0,75 kn)

3 češnja češnjaka (0,75 kn)

1 šalica kuhanog bijelog graha (1,50 kn)

6 srednje velikih krumpira (3,00 kn)

6-8 sušenih ili svježih shiitaka (3,00 kn)

6 šalica povrtnog temeljca (3,00 kn)

Dobar prstohvat soli (0,01 kn)

Dobar prstohvat svježe mljevenog crnog papra (0,15 kn)

½ žličice sušenog chilija u pahuljicama (0,25 kn)

1 žlica miso paste (2,00 kn)

1 žličica tostiranog sezamovog ulja (1,00 kn)

Dodatno po želji:

Trakice sušenih morskih algi za posluživanje (0,50 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Operite, ogulite i fino nasjeckajte svo povrće. Ako koristite sušene shiitake, namočite ih u toploj vodi da omekšaju, pa grubo nasjeckajte. Svježe shiitake možete odmah narezati.

Veliki lonac sa uljem stavite na jaku vatru, pa na ulju par minuta dinstajte luk, sve dok ne postane staklast. Dodajte češnjak i kuhajte minutu, samo da zamiriši, pa onda ubacite i grah, krumpire, gljive sa tekućinom od namakanja, temeljac, sol, papar i čili. Pustite da zavrije, smanjite vatru i krčkajte sa odškrinutim poklopcem 30-tak minuta. Nakon 30 minuta maknite juhu sa vatre.

Miso pastu rastopite u oko pola šalice tekućine od kuhanja, pa umiješajte sve to natrag u juhu. Svakako pazite da vam juha više nije na vatri jer miso ne smije zavrijeti, pošto će onda izgubiti sva zdrava svojstva od dobrih bakterija. Rastopljeni miso umiješajte natrag u juhu skupa sa sezamovim uljem. Propulsirajte juhu sa štapnim mikserom dok sve ne bude lijepo kremasto. Kušajte, prilagodite začine i poslužite. Po želji juhu još možete posipati sušenim morskim algama koje ste narezali na tanke trakice.
