Vegetarian Lentil Burritos / Vegetarijanski burrito s lećom

I’ve been on a big burrito kick lately and I’ve basically been wrapping up pretty much anything in a tortilla. These meals are awesome, not only because they are super versatile, but also because they are portable. It’s incredibly easy to make a bunch of burritos in advance and then just wrapping the extras in cling foil to freeze or take to work the next day.

METHOD:

Wash, peel and chop up all of the veggies. Place a deep skillet on medium heat then add in the oil, onions and green and red peppers. Cook for about 5-10 minutes, until the peppers are softened and slightly caramelized. Add in minced garlic, tomato paste, garlic powder, Hungarian and smoked paprika, salt, black pepper, red pepper flakes and basil. Give a good stir and cook for a minute or two until the spices become fragrant before adding in parsley, lentils and water. Stir and simmer uncovered for 5-10 minutes, until the water has evaporated and all the flavors are combined. Turn off heat and get ready to assemble the burritos.

While the lentils are cooking preheat the oven to 180°C. Scoop the lentils onto the tortillas, then top with shredded cheese, diced fresh tomatoes and a few jalapeno slices. Wrap up the burritos and place on parchment lined baking sheet. Repeat until all of the ingredients are used up. Bake the burritos for 10-15 minutes, until slightly crisped up. Serve immediately with a dollop of sour cream.

U zadnje sam vrijeme poludila za burritosima i manje-više sve što mogu umatam u tortilje. Takvi obroci su mi skroz super, ne samo iz razloga što ih možete modificirati na sto načina, već i zato jer su prijenosi. Vrlo je jednostavno pripremiti hrpu burritosa unaprijed, pa višak onda umotati u prijanjajuću foliju i smrznuti ili jednostavno drugi dan ponijeti na posao.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 6 burritosa / 8,72 kn po burritu / 52,32 kn za sve)

Za leću:

2 žlice maslinovog ulja (0,66 kn)

2 luka (1,50 kn)

2 crvene paprike (6,00 kn)

2 zelene paprike (6,00 kn)

3 češnja češnjaka (0,75 kn)

2 žlice koncentrata od rajčice (2,00 kn)

½ žličice češnjaka u prahu (0,25 kn)

1 žličica slatke crvene paprike (0,25 kn)

1 žličica dimljene paprike (0,50 kn)

1 žličica soli (0,01 kn)

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

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

1 žličica sušenog bosiljka (0,50 kn)

1 žlica sušenog peršina (0,50 kn)

1 i ½ šalica kuhane leće (4,50 kn)

½ šalice vode (–)

Za složiti burritose:

6 velikih tortilja (12,00 kn)

2 šalice ribanog sira (8,00 kn)

2 rajčice (4,00 kn)

¼ šalice ukiseljenih jalapenosa ili feferona (1,50 kn)

Po želji za posluživanje:

Kiselo vrhnje (3,00 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Operite, očistite i nasjeckajte svo povrće. Stavite dublju tavu na srednju vatru pa u nju dodajte ulje, luk i crvene i zelene paprike. Dinstajte 5-10 minuta dok paprike ne omekšaju i blago se karameliziraju. Ubacite sjeckani češnjak, koncentrat rajčice, češnjak u prahu, slatku i dimljenu papriku, sol, papar, čili i bosiljak. Dobro promiješajte i kuhajte samo minutu-dvije da začini zamiriše prije nego dodate peršin, leću i vodu. Opet promiješajte pa krčkajte otklopljeno 5-10 minuta da voda ispari, a okusi se prožmu. Maknite sa vatre i složite burritose.

Dok se leća kuha zagrijte pećnicu na 180°C. Leću stavite na tortilju, pa posipajte ribanim sirom, sjeckanim rajčicama i sa par komadića jalapenosa (ili feferona). Zamotajte burrito, pa stavite na protvan obložen papirom za pečenje. Ponavljajte dok ne iskoristite sve sastojke. Pecite burritose 10-15 minuta da se blago zahrskaju. Poslužite odmah sa malo kiselog vrhnja.
