Creamy Pea and Edamame Stew (including a vegan option) / Kremasto varivo od graška i boba (uključujući i vegansku opciju)

This stew is a clean-up-your-fridge type of dish, which means you can basically chug in anything your heart desires. I had various leftovers floating around, so this is what I came up with. There’s also a tiny bit of pancetta in there as well, but if you’re vegetarian or vegan, feel free to just use smoked tofu instead.

1 tsp garlic powder (0.07 EUR)

1 tbsp sweet Hungarian paprika (0.07 EUR)

1 tsp dried basil (0.07 EUR)

1 bay leaf (0.03 EUR)

4 tbsp all-purpose flour (0.03 EUR)

6 cups veggie broth (0.40 EUR)

3 potatoes (0.20 EUR)

METHOD:

Wash, peel and finely dice all of the veggies and pancetta. Place deep pot on high heat and add in oil, onion, garlic and carrots. Saute for a few minutes, until veggies slightly soften up. Add in diced pancetta and cook for a few minutes to slightly crisp up before adding in salt, black pepper, red pepper flakes, garlic powder, Hungarian paprika, basil and bay leaf. Cook for a minute, just so the spices become fragrant.

Stir in flour then add about one to two cups of broth. Stir vigorously, so all the flour dissolves in broth and there are no clumps. If needed, add in a bit more broth to thin out the mixture. Then turn the heat down to medium and allow this mix to simmer for about ten minutes, while stirring frequently. After about ten minutes, gradually stir in the remaining broth. Add in diced potatoes, peas, edamame beans, tomato paste and parsley.

Bring to a rolling boil, then reduce heat and simmer with a lid cracked open for 30 minutes. Be sure to give an occasional good stir, so that nothing sticks to the bottom of the pot. Serve warm or portion out for later, as this stew reheats great.

Ovo varivo je onaj tip jela koji skuhate kada trebate počistiti hladnjak i špajzu, jer unutra bez problema možete utrpati svakakve ostatke. Osim raznog povrća, ja sam imala i mali komadićak pancete, pa sam i nju odlučila iskoristiti. Ako ste vi vegetarijanac ili vegan, slobodno umjesto pancete upotrijebite dimljeni tofu.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 6 porcija / 4,46 kn po porciji / 26,76 kn za sve)

2 žlice suncokretovog ulja (0,20 kn)

1 veliki luk (0,75 kn)

4 češnja češnjaka (1,00 kn)

3 mrkve (2,25 kn)

Mali komadić pancete (5,00 kn)

1 žličica soli (0,01 kn)

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

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

1 žličica češnjaka u prahu (0,50 kn)

1 žlica slatke crvene paprike (0,50 kn)

1 žličica sušenog bosiljka (0,50 kn)

1 lovorov list (0,20 kn)

4 žlice glatkog brašna (0,20 kn)

6 šalica povrtnog temeljca (3,00 kn)

3 krumpira (1,50 kn)

1 šalica smrznutog graška (1,50 kn)

1 šalica smrznutog boba (6,00 kn)

1 žlica koncentrata od rajčice (1,00 kn)

2 žlice sušenog peršina (2,00 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Operite, ogulite i fino nasjeckajte svo povrće i pancetu. Stavite veliki lonac na jaku vatru i dodajte ulje, luk, češnjak i mrkve. Dinstajte nekoliko minuta da sve malo omekša. Ubacite sjeckanu pancetu, pa i nju kuhajte da se malo zahrska prije nego dodate sol, papar, čili, češnjak u prahu, papriku, bosiljak i lovor. Kuhajte minutu da začini zamiriše.

Umiješajte brašno, pa dodajte jednu do dvije šalice temeljca. Sve jako dobro promiješajte da se brašno skroz rastopi u temeljcu i ne bude grudica. Po potrebi razrijedite sa još malo temeljca, te smanjite vatru i uz učestalo miješanje krčkajte desetak minuta. Nakon kojih deset minuta postepeno umiješajte preostali temeljac. Dodajte krumpire, grašak, bob, koncentrat rajčice i peršin.

Pustite da varivo zavrije, smanjite vatru, te kuhajte sa odškrinutim poklopcem 30-tak minuta. S vremena na vrijeme sve dobro promiješajte kako se ništa ne bi uhvatilo za dno lonca. Poslužite odmah toplo, ili rasporedite u porcije za kasnije, s obzirom da se ovo varivo super podgrijava.
