Purple Krautfleckerl – Pasta with Purple Cabbage (vegan) / Krpice sa crvenim zeljem (veganske)

Krautfleckerl – or a simple dish of cabbage pasta is a very popular side dish / poor man’s main dish in these parts, but it’s always done with white cabbage. I had a ton of purple cabbage lying around and felt like experimenting. Let me tell you, the result is just as good and the color wonderful, so I definitely encourage you to give this variation a try as well.

METHOD:

Wash, peel and dice up onion and cabbage and mince the garlic. Add the oil and onion to a deep skillet on a medium heat, then cook for about 5 minutes until the onion becomes translucent. Add in the sugar and diced cabbage, give a good stir, then cook for about 10-15 minutes until cabbage is wilted down. If needed, add a splash of water. Add in minced garlic, pasta squares, salt, black pepper and veggie broth. Stir and make sure that all of the pasta is submerged. Bring to a simmer, reduce heat to low and cook with a lid tightly closed for about ten minutes, until the pasta is thoroughly cooked through. Be sure to give a good stir every once in a while. As needed, add in a splash more of water or broth. When the pasta is cooked through, remove from heat, stir in vegan butter and serve immediately.

Krpice sa zeljem su jako popularni prilog ili pak jeftino i pristupačno glavno jelo u našim krajevima, međutim koliko sam ja vidjela, uvijek ga se radi sa bijelim kupusom. Mi smo doma imali tonu crvenog zelja pa sam se stoga odlučila baciti na eksperimentiranje. Mogu vam reći da je konačni rezultat jednako dobar, a boja baš divna, tako da vam definitivno preporučam da isprobate i ovu varijantu kada budete u prilici.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 4 porcije / 3,13 kn po porciji / 12,51 kn za sve)

2 žlice suncokretovog ulja (0,20 kn)

1 veliki luk (0,75 kn)

1 žlica šećera (0,05 kn)

Pola glavice crvenog kupusa (3,50 kn)

2 češnja češnjaka (0,50 kn)

2 šalice sušene sitne tjestenine – krpica (3,50 kn)

½ žličice soli (0,01 kn)

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

3 šalice povrtnog temeljca (1,50 kn)

2 žice veganskog maslaca (2,00 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Operite, ogulite i nasjeckajte luk, kupus i češnjak. Ulje i luk stavite u dublju tavu na srednje jakoj vatri te kuhajte jedno pet minuta da luk postane staklast. Sada dodajte i šećer i sjeckani kupus, dobro promiješajte pa nastavite kuhati 10-15 minuta da kupus povene. Po potrebi dodajte i malo vode. Ubacite unutra sitno sjeckani češnjak, sirovu tjesteninu, sol, papar i temeljac. Dobro promiješajte kako bi sva tjestenina bila potopljen. Pustite da zavrije, smanjite vatru na skroz lagano te kuhajte čvrsto poklopljeno desetak minuta, dok tjestenina nije gotova. Pazite samo da tijekom kuhanja sve povremeno dobro promiješate, a prema potrebi dodajte i još malo vode ili temeljca. Kada je tjestenina kuhana, maknite sve s vatre, umiješajte maslac i odmah poslužite.
