Lentil and Bean Stew (vegan) / Varivo od leće i graha (vegansko)

This type of lentil stew is my go-to recipe when I want to make a quick and easy meal. I may add in whatever else I have lying around the fridge, but the base of it are always onions, garlic, lentils and canned tomatoes. This time around I had a can of beans in tomato sauce and the final stew is probably my all-time favorite.

METHOD:

Peel, wash and chop up the onion and garlic.Rinse the lentils in a colander under running water. Add oil, onion and garlic to a pot on high heat and saute for a few minutes until slightly translucent. Throw in diced tomatoes, beans, lentils, Hungarian and smoked paprika, garlic powder, red pepper, salt, black pepper, oregano, parsley, bay leaf and veggie broth. Mix well and bring to a rolling boil.

Once the stew is boiling, reduce heat and simmer with a lid cracked open for about 40 minutes. Stir occasionally and add in a splash of water if needed. Serve warm or portion out for later, as this dish also reheats wonderfully.

Ovakav tip variva me uvijek spašava kada trebam na brzinu smutiti nekakav jednostavan obrok. Unutra obično ubacim i štogod mi se već povlači po frižideru, ali baza su uvijek luk, češnjak, leća i pelati. Ovoga puta sam imala doma i konzervu graha u umaku od rajčice, a ta mi je verzija variva čak nekako i najdraža od sviju.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 4 izdašne porcije / 4,73 kn po porciji / 18,91 kn za sve)

2 žlice suncokretovog ulja (0,20 kn)

1 luk (0,75 kn)

4 češnja češnjaka (1,00 kn)

1 konzerva sjeckanih pelata (4,00 kn)

1 konzerva graha u umaku od rajčice (4,00 kn)

1 šalica crvene leće (5,00 kn)

1 žličica slatke crvene paprike (0,25 kn)

½ žličice dimljene paprike (0,25 kn)

½ žličice češnjaka u prahu (0,25 kn)

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

1 žličica soli (0,01 kn)

½ žličice svježe mljevenog crnog papra (0,25 kn)

1 žličica sušenog origana (0,50 kn)

1 žlica sušenog peršina (0,50 kn)

1 lovorov list (0,20 kn)

3 šalice povrtnog temeljca (1,50 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Ogulite, operite i nasjeckajte luk i češnjak. Leću isperite u cjediljci pod tekućom vodom. Ulje, luk i češnjak stavite u lonac na jakoj vatri i dinstajte par minuta dok ne postanu staklasti. Dodajte pelate, grah, leću, slatku i dimljenu papriku, češnjak u prahu, čili, sol, papar, origano, peršin, lovor i povrtni temeljac. Dobro promiješajte i pustite da zavrije.

Kada sve zavrije, smanjite vatru i krčkajte sa odškrinutim poklopcem oko 40 minuta. Povremeno promiješajte, a po potrebi dodajte i još malo vode. Poslužite toplo ili rasporedite za kasnije, pošto se ovo jelo i super podgrijava.
