Green Bean and Sausage Stew / Varivo od mahuna i kobasica

These types of dishes instantly throw me back into my childhood, as my grandma used to cook up something like that on a weekly basis. They are also super comforting and cozy, with minimal fuss. This week has been pretty hectic so far, so let’s all chill with a really easy recipe.

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields 6 generous servings / 1.15 EUR per serving / 6.87 EUR for all)

2 tbsp sunflower seed oil (0.03 EUR)

1 large onion (0.10 EUR)

3 carrots (0.30 EUR)

2 spicy sausages (2.00 EUR)

4 tbsp all-purpose flour (0.03 EUR)

6 cups veggie broth (0.40 EUR)

4 potatoes (0.27 EUR)

800 grams frozen green beans (2.00 EUR)

1 tbsp tomato paste (0.13 EUR)

1 tbsp sweet Hungarian paprika (0.07 EUR)

1 tsp garlic powder (0.07 EUR)

1 tsp freshly ground black pepper (0.07 EUR)

1 tsp salt (0.01 EUR)

Good pinch of dried red pepper flakes (0.02 EUR)

METHOD:

Wash, peel and finely dice all of the veggies. Cut the sausages into coins. Place deep pot on high heat and add in oil, onion, carrots and sausage coins. Saute for about 10 minutes, until fragrant and slightly caramelized. Add in the flour and give a good stir so the veggies and sausages are coated in flour. Then gradually add in veggie broth, while stirring to remove any clumps. Add in all of the remaining ingredients. For some extra smoky flavor, add in some smoked pork bones as well (totally optional, but so, so worth it).

Give a good stir, bring to a rolling boil and reduce heat and simmer with a lid cracked open for about 45 minutes. Give an occasional stir and add a bit more water as needed. Serve warm. This stew reheats great, so it’s also an excellent meal prep option. I wouldn’t suggest freezing it, though, as potatoes tend to turn kinda weird.

Ovakav me tip jela uvijek nekako podsjeti na djetinstvo, jer bi moja baka stalno kuhala nešto slično barem na tjednoj bazi. Uz to, ova hrana je baš onako utješna i fina, a sa njom ima minimalno posla. Cijeli tjedan mi je bio nešto kaotičan, pa ajmo se sada svi skupa malo opustiti uz jedan jako laganini recept.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 6 izdašnih porcija / 8,54 kn po porciji / 51,26 kn za sve)

2 žlice suncokretovog ulja (0,20 kn)

1 veliki luk (0,75 kn)

3 mrkve (2,25 kn)

2 pikantne kobasice (15,00 kn)

4 žlice glatkog brašna (0,20 kn)

6 šalica povrtnog temeljca (3,00 kn)

4 krumpira (2,00 kn)

800 g smrznutih zelenih mahuna (15,00 kn)

1 žlica koncentrata od rajčice (1,00 kn)

1 žlica slatke crvene paprike (0,50 kn)

1 žličica češnjaka u prahu (0,50 kn)

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

1 žličica soli (0,01 kn)

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

1 lovorov list (0,20 kn)

1 žličica sušenog timijana (0,50 kn)

2 žlice sušenog peršina (2,00 kn)

Dodatno po želji:

Dimljene svinjske kosti (7,50 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Operite, ogulite i fino nasjeckajte svo povrće. Kobasice narežite na novčiće. Stavite veliki lonac na jaku vatru i dodajte ulje, luk, mrkve i kolutiće kobasice. Dinstajte desetak minuta da sve zamiriši i blago se karamelizira. Dodajte brašno i sve dobro promiješajte da se sastojci oblože brašnom. Postepeno uz miješanje dodajte temeljac kako ne bi bilo grudica. Dodajte sve preostale sastojke, a za ekstra aromu dima dodajte i svinjske kosti (totalno neobavezno, ali jako, jako preporučljivo).

Dobro sve promiješajte, pustite da zavrije pa kuhajte sa odškrinutim poklopcem oko 45 minuta. Po potrebi s vremena na vrijeme promiješajte i ako treba podlijte sa malo vode. Poslužite toplo. Ovo se varivo super podgrijava, pa je odlična opcija za pripremiti unaprijed. Smrzavanje vam baš i ne bih preporučila jer krumpiri onda postanu čudnjikavi.
