METHOD:

Peel, wash and chop up all the veggies and mushrooms. Add oil, onion and carrots to a large pot on high heat and saute for about five minutes to slightly caramelize. Add in vegan butter and all of the mushrooms. Stir and cook for 10-15 minutes until the mushrooms are cooked down and lightly browned. Now add in minced garlic, barley, tomato paste, salt, black pepper, red pepper flakes, garlic powder, dried oregano and veggie broth. Bring to a rolling boil, reduce heat and simmer with a lid cracked open for 30 minutes, until the barley is cooked through.

Once the barley is cooked, turn off heat and stir in frozen spinach. Put the lid back on and let the stew sit for about 10 minutes, so the spinach cooks from residual heat. Give a good final stir and serve immediately. This dish also freezes and reheats great, so don’t be shy and be sure to cook up a nice big batch. You’ll definitely thank yourself later.

Za sve vas ljubitelje gljiva, evo vam recept za jedno prefino i zasitno varivo koje, ne samo da je jednostavno za pripremiti, već se i super smrzava. Na žalost, mi smo slistili naše zalihe, ali definitivno bih samu sebe mogla uvjeriti da skuham još jednu turu.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 6 izdašnih porcija / 8,10 kn po porciji / 48,61 kn za sve)

2 žlice suncokretovog ulja (0,20 kn)

1 veliki luk (0,75 kn)

2 mrkve (1,50 kn)

2 žlice veganskog maslaca (2,00 kn)

250 g bukovača (10,00 kn)

250,00 g smeđih šampinjona (10,00 kn)

100 g shiitaka (7,50 kn)

4 češnja češnjaka (1,00 kn)

1 i ½ šalica ječma (1,50 kn)

2 žlice koncentrata od rajčice (2,00 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 žličica sušenog origana (0,50 kn)

6 šalica povrtnog temeljca (3,00 kn)

400 g smrznutog špinata u listovima (7,50 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Operite, ogulite i nasjeckajte svo povrće i gljive. Ulje, luk i mrkve stavite u veliki lonac na jakoj vatri i dinstajte jedno pet minuta da se sve blago karamelizira. Dodajte maslac i sve gljive. Dobro promiješajte i kuhajte jedno 10-15 minuta dok tekućina iz gljiva ne ispari i gljive se blago zapeku. Sada dodajte sjeckani češnjak, ječam, koncentrat rajčice, sol, papar, čili, češnjak u prahu, origano i temeljac. Pustite da zavrije, smanjite vatru i krčkajte sa odškrinutim poklopcem oko pola sata, dok ječam ne bude kuhan.

Kada je ječam kuhan, maknite lonac s vatre i umiješajte smrznuti špinat. Ponovno poklopite i ostavite tako desetak minuta da se špinat skuha od topline u loncu. Za kraj sve još jednom promiješajte i odmah poslužite. Ovo se jelo super smrzava i podgrijava, pa se nemojte ustručavati skuhati više. Vjerujte mi, vaše buduće ja biti će vam zahvalno.
