Umami Broccoli Soup (vegan) / Umami juha od brokule (veganska)

There is a whole science behind the word umami and what it actually means, taste wise. This soup definitely delivers and is super rich and creamy. I could literally chug down buckets of it. Yet the ingredients are quite humble and the whole preparation process really easy.

METHOD:

Wash, peel and chop up all the veggies, including the broccoli stem. Roughly chop up the mushrooms. Add all of the ingredients, aside from toasted sesame oil, to a large pot and bring to a rolling boil.

Once the soup reaches a rolling boil, reduce heat and simmer for about 30minutes with a lid cracked open until everything is cooked through. Remove from heat, add in toasted sesame oil and pulse with an immersion blender until creamy. Taste, adjust seasoning and serve immediately, or reserve for later, as this soup reheats wonderfully.

Postoji cijela znanost iza riječi umami i što ona točno znači po pitanju okusa. Ova je juhica definitivno jaka po pitanju umamija i jako je bogata i kremasta. Ja bi ju doslovce mogla natakati u sebe iz kante koliko mi je fina. S druge strane, sastojci su manje-više skromni,a sama priprema jako jednostavna.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 4 izdašne porcije / 5.82 kn po porciji / 23,26 kn za sve)

1 luk (0,75 kn)

1 glavica brokule (6,00 kn)

2 mrkve (1,50 kn)

3 srednje velika krumpira (1,50 kn)

2 sušene rajčice (1,00 kn)

6 gljiva shiitaka (3,00 kn)

½ žličice soli (0.01 kn)

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

1 žličica češnjaka u prahu (0,50 kn)

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

1 žličica slatke crvene paprike (0,25 kn)

1 žličica mljevenog korijandera (0,50 kn)

1 žlica sušenog peršina (0,50 kn)

3 žlice soja sosa (3,00 kn)

6 šalica povrtnog temeljca (3,00 kn)

1 žličica tostiranog sezamovog ulja (1,00 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Operite, ogulite i nasjeckajtesvo povrće, uključujući i stabljiku od brokule. Krupno narežite gljive. Sve sastojke osim sezamovog ulja ubacite u lonac i pustite da zavrije.

Kada juha zavrije, smanjite vatru i krčkajte sa odškrinutim poklopcem 30-tak minuta, dok povrće ne bude kuhano. Maknite juhu sa vatre, dodajte sezamovo ulje i propasirajteštapnim mikserom da bude kremasto. Kušajte i prilagodite začine, pa odmah poslužite ili sačuvajte za kasnije, pošto se ova juhica odlično podgrijava.
