Chickpea and Smoked Tofu Chili (vegan) / Čili od slanutka i dimljenog tofua (veganski)

With cooler autumn weather I really crave cozy comfort foods like chili and this one is super delicious and really quick and easy to prepare. I had a ton of chickpeas around so that’s what I’ve used, but you can really dump in any bean or legume of your choice.

METHOD:

Wash, peel and chop up all of the veggies and tofu. Place a pot on high heat then add in the oil, onion, carrots, celery and bell peppers. Saute for about 5 minutes, until slightly caramelized. Throw in minced garlic, salt, black pepper, red pepper flakes, garlic powder, Hungarian and smoked paprika, oregano, basil and bay leaf. Stir and cook for a minute so the spices become fragrant before adding in tomato paste, diced tomatoes, chickpeas, tofu and veggie broth. Bring to a rolling boil, then reduce heat and simmer with a lid cracked open for about 30 minutes. If needed, add in a splash more of water. Serve warm. This chili also reheats wonderfully, so it’s a great meal prep option as well.

Sa hladnijim jesenskim danima jedu mi se topla jela na žlicu i variva tipa čili, a ovaj u nastavku ispao je odlično i bio jako brz za pripremiti. Doma smo imali brdo slanutka, tako da sam njega iskoristila u receptu, ali vi slobodno stavite bilo koju drugu grahoricu po svojem izboru.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 4 porcije / 8,83 kn po porciji / 35,31 kn za sve)

2 žlice suncokretovog ulja (0,20 kn)

1 luk (0,75 kn)

3 mrkve (2,25 kn)

3 rebra celera (1,50 kn)

2 crvene paprike (6,00 kn)

4 češnja češnjaka (1,00 kn)

½ žličice soli (0,01 kn)

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

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

½ žličice češnjaka u prahu (0,25 kn)

1 žličica slatke paprike (0,25 kn)

1 žličica dimljene paprike (0,50 kn)

1 žličica sušenog origana (0,50 kn)

1 žličica sušenog bosiljka (0,50 kn)

1 lovorov list (0,10 kn)

2 žlice koncentrata od rajčice (2,00 kn)

1 konzerva sjeckanih pelata (4,00 kn)

2 šalice kuhanog slanutka (6,00 kn)

1 kocka dimljenog tofua (7,50 kn)

3 šalice povrtnog temeljca (1,50 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Operite, očistite i nasjeckajte svo povrće i tofu. Lonac stavite na jaku vatru, pa dodajte ulje, luk, mrkve, celer i paprike. Dinstajte pet minuta da se sve blago karamelizira. Dodajte sjeckani češnjak, sol, papar, čili, češnjak u prahu, slatku i dimljenu papriku, origano, bosiljak i lovor. Dobro promiješajte i pustite minutu da začini zamiriše, pa onda ubacite i koncentrat rajčice, pelate, slanutak, tofu i temeljac. Pustite da zavrije, smanjite vatru, te krčkajte sa odškrinutim poklopcem 30-tak minuta. Po potrebi dodajte još mrvicu vode. Poslužite toplo. Čili se također super i podgrijava, pa je odlična opcija za pripremiti unaprijed.
