Creamy Cauliflower and Mustard Sauce with Roasted Mushrooms (vegan) / Kremasti umak od cvjetače i senfa sa prženim gljivama (veganski)

Initially I’ve had plans to prepare a vegan Alfredo sauce using cauliflower, however, I came up with this dish instead. The ingredients are super simple and humble, yet this dish is really big on flavor. It’s also hard to imagine that there aren’t any dairy products in it, as it’s really rich and velvety in texture. However, this sauce is also super healthy and delicious, so I highly recommend you give it a go. I served the sauce along some brown rice, but use any carb of your choice that you prefer. I think that this would go awesome with just about anything.

METHOD:

Wash, peel and chop up all the veggies and mushrooms. Add coconut oil, onion, garlic and carrot to a pot on medium heat and saute for about 5-10 minutes to slightly caramelize. Add in chopped cauliflower, season with salt, pepper, thyme and bay leaf, then cover with broth. If needed, add in a splash more of water so most of the cauliflower is submerged, bring to a simmer and cover tightly with a lid. Cook for about 15 minutes, until all the veggies are softened and cooked through.

Fish out and discard the bay leaf, then pulse the cauliflower and veggies with an immersion blender until smooth. Stir in mustard and chopped parsley, then taste and adjust seasoning.

While the cauliflower is cooking, fry up mushrooms on butter in a separate pan until slightly browned. Season with salt and pepper. Serve the mushrooms with cauliflower sauce and a carb of your choice.

Inicijalno sam imala viziju kako ću sa cvjetačom napraviti nekakav veganski Alfredo umak, međutim u međuvremenu sam se ipak smislila smućkati ovo jelo. Iako su ovdje sastojci jako jednostavni i skromni, konačni je rezultat prožet okusima. Također je teško zamisliti da u umaku nema nikakvih mliječnih proizvoda, jer mu je tekstura bogata, baršunasta i kremasta. Uz to sve, ovaj je umak još i veoma zdrav i ukusan, tako da vam svakako preporučam da ga isprobate. Ja sam ga poslužila sa smeđom rižom, ali bilo koji ugljikohidrat po vašem izboru bi također dobro pasao. Mislim da bi ovo zapravo bilo fino sa skoro svime.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 6 porcija / 3,69 kn po porciji / 22,12 kn za sve)

Za umak:

2 žlice kokosovog ulja (1,00 kn)

1 luk (0,75 kn)

3 češnja češnjaka (0,75 kn)

1 mrkva (0,75 kn)

½ glavice cvjetače (6,00 kn)

1 žličica soli (0,01 kn)

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

½ žličice češnjaka u prahu (0,25 kn)

½ žličice timijana – majčine dušice (0,25 kn)

1 lovorov list (0,20 kn)

1 šalica povrtnog temeljca (0,50 kn)

1 žlica senfa (0,50 kn)

Pregršt svježeg peršina (1,00 kn)

Za gljive:

2 žlice veganskog maslaca (2,00 kn)

250 g šampinjona (7,50 kn)

Dobar prstohvat soli (0,01 kn)

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

PRIPREMA:

Operite ogulite i nasjeckajte svo povrće i gljive. Kokosovo ulje, luk, češnjak i mrkvu dodajte u lonac na srednjoj vatri, pa dinstajte jedno 5-10 minuta da se povrće blago karamelizira. Ubacite narezanu cvjetaču, začinite solju, paprom, timijanom i lovorovim listom, pa sve zalijte temeljcem. Prema potrebi dodajte mrvicu vode kako bi većina cvjetače bila potopljena. Pustite da zavrije, smanjite vatru pa krčkajte poklopljeno 15-tak minuta, da povrće omekša.

Ispecajte i bacite lovorov list, a sve ostalo propulsirajte štapnim mikserom u kremasti umak. Umiješajte senf i sjeckani peršin, pa kušajte i prilagodite začine.

Dok se cvjetača kuha, na maslacu u odvojenoj tavi popržite gljive da dobiju smeđu boju. Začinite gljive solju i paprom, te poslužite sa umakom od cvjetače i ugljikohidratom po izboru.
