Spinach and Broccoli Soup (vegan) / Juha od špinata i brokule (veganska)

Soups are a fantastic and easy way to get more veggies and nutrients into your systems. Needless to say, they are delicious and pretty cheap as well, so it’s absolutely a win-win situation. You can definitely puree this soup to make it creamy, or opt to keep it in chunks as it is – the world is your oyster.

METHOD:

Wash, peel and chop up all the veggies. Peel the outer layer of broccoli stem and dice it up as well. Add the oil, onion and broccoli stem (reserve florets for later) to a large pot on high heat and saute for about 5-10 minutes to slightly caramelize. Add in the garlic and cook for a minute before dumping in potatoes, salt, garlic powder, black pepper, red pepper flakes, thyme, basil, parsley, bay leaves and veggie broth. Bring to a rolling boil, reduce heat and simmer with a lid cracked open for 15 minutes.

After 15 minutes add in broccoli florets and simmer for another 10 minutes. Check if the potatoes and broccoli are done to your liking, then turn off heat. Stir in fresh spinach, then put the lid back on and allow the soup to sit covered for a few minutes so the spinach wilts down from residual heat. Puree or serve as it is.

Juhice su super način da u svoj organizam ubacite još više povrća i nutrijenata. Ne moram posebno niti isticati kako su ujedno ukusne i prilično jeftine, tako da su samim time i odličan obrok. Ovu juhu svakako možete ispasirati da bude skroz glatka ili pak poslužiti kakva već je sa svim komadićima – kako vam je više drago.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 6 izdašnih porcija / 3,64 kn po porciji / 21,82 kn za sve)

2 žlice maslinovog ulja (0,66 kn)

1 luk (0,75 kn)

1 glavica brokule (6,00 kn)

3 češnja češnjaka (0,75 kn)

4 srednje velika krumpira (2,00 kn)

1 žličica soli (0,01 kn)

1 žličica češnjaka u prahu (0,50 kn)

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

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

1 žličica sušenog timijana – majčine dušice (0,50 kn)

1 žličica sušenog bosiljka (0,50 kn)

2 žlice sušenog peršina (1,00 kn)

2 lovorova lista (0,40 kn)

6 šalica povrtnog temeljca (3,00 kn)

Veliki pregršt svježeg špinata (5,00 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Operite, ogulite i nasjeckajte svo povrće. Ogulite i bacite vanjski sloj sa stablike od brokule, pa nasjeckajte i samu stabljiku. Cvjetiće brokule stavite na stranu za kasnije. Ulje, luk i stabljiku brokule stavite u veliki lonac na jakoj vatri i kuhajte 5-10 minuta da se sve blago karamelizira. Dodajte češnjak te kuhajte minutu da zamiriši prije nego ubacite i krumpire, sol, češnjak u prahu, papar, čili, timijan, bosiljak, peršin, lovor i temeljac. Pustite da zavrije, smanjite vatru te kuhajte sa odškrinutim poklopcem 15 minuta.

Nakon 15 minuta ubacite u juhu i cvjetiće brokule te sve skupa kuhajte još 10 minuta. Provjerite da li su krumpir i brokula skuhani po vašem ukusu, pa maknite sve s vatre. Umiješajte svježi špinat u juhu i poklopite sve na još par minuta da špinat povene od topline. Juhu propasirajte ili ostavite kakva je i poslužite.
