METHOD:

Peel and finely dice onion, garlic and sundried tomatoes. Saute the onion for about 5 minutes to slightly caramelize then add in garlic and sundried tomatoes. Cook for just a minute before adding salt, black pepper, red pepper flakes, garlic powder, paprika, oregano, sugar, diced tomatoes, tomato puree, tomato paste, beans and veggie broth. Bring to a rolling boil, reduce heat and simmer covered for about 30 minutes. You can definitely cut down the cooking time, but the flavors will intensify over time and the soup will only taste better as it simmers away.

While the soup is simmering, prepare the croutons. Preheat the oven to 180°C and line a baking tray with parchment paper. Cut the bread into small cubes and toss with olive oil, salt, pepper and cheese. I used Grana Padano for croutons and later on to serve over soup, but any similar sort of cheese would work just as well. Spread the coated bread cubes on a prepared baking tray and roast for 10-15 minutes, until crispy and golden to your liking.

When the soup is done, pulse it with immersion blender until smooth. Serve warm, sprinkled with cheese and croutons. This soup also reheats great, so be sure to cook up a bigger batch as a meal prep.

U slučaju da tražite način kako nabrijati običnu juhu od rajčice i pretvoriti ju u cijeli obrok, ovo će biti savršen recept za vas. Poslužena sa dobrom dozom fino ribanog tvrdog sira i svježim hrskavim krutonima, juha je čista fantazija. I ne morate niti pitati, ali da, juha je skroz jednostavna za pripremiti i prilično jeftina.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 6 porcija / 5,39 kn po porciji / 32,34 kn za sve)

Za juhu:

2 žlice maslinovog ulja (0,66 kn)

1 veliki luk (0,75 kn)

4 češnja češnjaka (1,00 kn)

4 sušene rajčice (2,00 kn)

1 žličica soli (0,01 kn)

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

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

1 žličica češnjaka u prahu (0,50 kn)

1 žličica dimljene paprike (0,50 kn)

1 žličica sušenog origana (0,50 kn)

2 žličice smeđeg šećera (0,10 kn)

1 konzerva sjeckanih pelata (4,00 kn)

2 šalice pasirane rajčice (4,00 kn)

2 žlice koncentrata od rajčice (2,00 kn)

1 konzerva bijelog graha (5,00 kn)

4 šalice povrtnog temeljca (2,00 kn)

Za krutone:

4 šnite starog kruha po izboru (2,00 kn)

2 žlice maslinovog ulja (0,66 kn)

Dobar prstohvat soli (0,01 kn)

Dobar prstohvat svježe mljevenog crnog papra (0,15 kn)

¼ šalice fino ribanog tvrdog sira (3,00 kn)

Dodatno za posluživanje:

¼ šalice fino ribanog tvrdog sira (3,00 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Operite, ogulite i fino nasjeckajte luk, češnjak i sušene rajčice. Luk prodinstajte pet minuta na maslinovom ulju da se blago karamelizira, pa onda dodajte češnjak i sušene rajčice. Kuhajte tek koju minutu prije nego ubacite sol, papar, čili, češnjak u prahu, papriku, origano, šećer, pelate, pasiranu rajčicu, koncentrat rajčice, grah i temeljac. Pustite da zavrije, pa smanjite vatru i krčkajte sa odškrinutim poklopcem 30-tak minuta. Zapravo možete i skratiti vrijeme kuhanja ako ste u žurbi, ali što se dulje juha bude kuhala, to će okus biti bolji i intenzivniji.

Dok se juha krčka pripremite krutone. Pećnicu zagrijte na 180°C te obložite protvan papirom za pečenje. Kruh narežite na kockice i pomiješajte sa maslinovim uljem, solju, paprom i sirom. Ja sam upotrijebila Grana Padano, kako za krutone, tako i kasnije za posipanje po juhi, ali bilo kakav sličan sir bi također funkcionirao. Začinjene krutone rasporedite po pripremljenom protvanu i pecite 10-15 minuta dok se ne zahrskaju po vašem ukusu i ne budu zlatno-smeđi.

Kada je juha gotova propulsirajte ju štapnim mikserom da bude kremasta. Poslužite ju toplu, posipanu sa sirom i sa krutonima. Ova se juha super podgrijava, pa svakako skuhajte veći lonac da imate i za kasnije.
