Creamy Mushroom and Mixed Veggie Soup with Quinoa (vegan) / Krem juha od gljiva i miješanog povrća sa kvinojom (veganska)

I don’t know if you are familiar, but mushroom powder is all the rage on the internet right now. It’s probably the equivalent of what avocado on toast used to be several years ago. Honestly, I’ve been a bit skeptical about the magic of mushroom powder, but decided to give it a go since it’s such a straightforward thing (you dump dried mushrooms in a food processor and grind them to a fine powder). Lo and behold, there really is some real power to the humble mushroom powder, so I suggest you try it out for yourself

I also order my dried shiitake in bulk from Ebay, so they come out really affordable. I used a bag of frozen mixed veggies here with carrot, cauliflower and broccoli mix, so this soup came together super quickly.

METHOD:

Wash, peel and finely dice onion and garlic, then add them to a deep pot on high heat together with oil. Saute for a few minutes, until softened and slightly translucent. Add in frozen mixed veggies, red pepper flakes, miso paste, mushroom powder and veggie broth. Bring to a rolling boil, reduce heat and cook with a lid cracked open for 20 minutes, until veggies are soften. Once the veggies are cooked through, turn off heat, add in toasted sesame oil and pulse everything with an immersion blender until smooth and creamy.

While the soup is cooking, prepare quinoa. Wash quinoa in a fine mesh colander under running water. Add to a pot with salt and water, bring to a boil and then simmer on low with a lid on for 15 minutes, until completely cooked through.

Serve the pureed soup with a scoop of cooked quinoa, or portion out and reheat later on.

Ne znam da li vam je poznato, ali Internet je trenutno poludio za praškom od gljiva i on je sada zauzeo važno mjesto koje je pred par godina imao tost sa avokadom. Iskreno, ja sam bila pomalo skeptična oko cijele fame, ali sam ipak odlučila isprobati taj čudesni prah, pošto je sve jako jednostavno i zdravorazumski (Uzmete sušene gljive, ubacite u multipraktik i boom! Eto vam prašak od gljiva.). I na kraju sam se i ja kao nevjerni Toma uvjerila da ipak ima neke čarolije u skromnom prašku od gljiva, pa vam svakako predlažem da ga i vi isprobate.

Također, kao super jeftini izvor sušenih gljiva svakako vam preporučam dobri stari Ebay. Ja od tamo naručujem sušene shiitake u većim pakiranjima, pa cijena ispadne stvarno pristupačna (za razliku od npr. sušenih vrganja po našim dućanima, brrr). U ovom sam receptu upotrijebila miks smrznute mrkve, brokule i cvjetače, pa je juha bila gotova za čas.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 4 izdašne porcije / 6,28 kn po porciji / 25,11 kn za sve

Za juhu:

2 žlice suncokretovog ulja (0,20 kn)

1 veliki luk (0,75 kn)

2 češnja češnjaka (0,50 kn)

1 vrećica smrznutog miješanog povrća (7,50 kn)

Dobar prstohvat sušenog čilija u pahuljicama (0,15 kn)

1 žlica miso paste (2,00 kn)

4 žlice praška od gljiva – ja sam upotrijebila shiitake (4,00 kn)

4 šalice povrtnog temeljca (2,00 kn)

1 žličica tostiranog sezamovog ulja (0,50 kn)

Za kvinoju:

1 šalica kvinoje (7,50 kn)

2 šalice vode (–)

Dobar prstohvat soli (0,01 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Operite, ogulite i nasjeckajte luk i češnjak, pa ih ubacite u lonac sa uljem na jakoj vatri. Dinstajte nekoliko minuta, dok ne omekšaju i postanu staklasti. Ubacite smrznuto povrće, čili, miso, prašak od gljiva i temeljac. Pustite da zavrije, smanjite vatru, pa krčkajte 20-tak minuta sa odškrinutim poklopcem da povrće omekša. Kada je povrće kuhano, maknite s vatre, dodajte sezamovo ulje i propulsirajte štapnim mikserom da sve bude kremasto.

Dok vam se juha krčka skuhajte i kvinoju. Operite kvinoju u finoj cjediljci pod mlazom tekuće vode, pa ubacite u lončić sa vodom i solju. Pustite da zavrije, pa onda krčkajte poklopljeno na niskoj vatri 15 minuta da se kvinoja skuha do kraja.

Krem juhu poslužite sa par žlica kuhane kvinoje, ili pak sve rasporedite u porcije i podgrijte prema potrebi.
