Quick and Easy Hummus with Homemade Tahini (vegan) / Brzi i jednostavni humus sa domaćim tahinijem (veganski)

This hummus is so delicious and super easy to make. It also came out costing next to nothing because I used homemade tahini, instead of buying the expansive pre-packaged stuff. And let me tell you right away, making homemade tahini is the easiest thing in the world. However, you will need a good coffee grinder or a powerful food processor with coffee grinder blades. I also added some peanut butter into the finished hummus for additional yumminess, but you’re welcome to replace it with more tahini if you’re one of those hummus purists or just don’t care for peanut butter.

IMGP7324

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields 2 jars / 0.60 EUR per jar / 1.20 EUR for all)

For tahini:

¼ cup toasted hulled sesame seeds (0.13 EUR)

1-2 tsp sunflower seed oil (0.01 EUR)

For the hummus:

1 can of cooked chickpeas (0.67 EUR)

¼ cup of aquafaba – reserved chickpea water (–)

1 garlic clove (0.03 EUR)

2 tbsp homemade tahini (price already calculated above)

1 tbsp peanut butter (0.13 EUR)

2 tbsp olive oil (0.09 EUR)

1 tbsp lemon juice (0.07 EUR)

½ tsp smoked paprika (0.03 EUR)

Good pinch of salt (0.01 EUR)

Good pinch of freshly ground black pepper (0.03 EUR)

IMGP7328

METHOD:

First make the tahini in a coffee grinder by pulsing sesame seeds with sunflower seed oil until creamy and smooth. This might take a minute or two, depending on your processor, and you’ll probably have to scrape the sides a couple of times. Add in a bit more oil if needed.

Drain the chickpeas, but reserve aquafaba (which is a fancy name for the chickpea water) for later. Add all of the hummus ingredients to a food processor and pulse until smooth. If needed, add in a bit more of the reserved water, a tablespoon at a time, until the hummus reaches a desired consistency. Serve chilled with a nice crusty bread or pita for dipping. Or with a bunch of sliced veggies.

The hummus will keep refrigerated in an airtight container for at least a week.

Ovaj humus je jako ukusan, a totalno jednostavan za pripremiti. Osim toga, cijena mu je super niska iz razloga što sam ja napravila svoj tahini, umjesto da stavim kupovni. I odmah da znate, napraviti domaći tahini je najlakša stvar na svijetu. Međutim, trebati će vam za to ili dobar mlinac za kavu, ili jaki multipraktik koji ima nastavak sa oštricama kao u mlincu za kavu. Ja sam u humus također ubacila i malo kikiriki maslaca jer ga obožavam. Međutim, vi ga slobodno zamijenite sa još tahinija ako ste purist kada je u pitanju priprema humusa ili jednostavno ne volite kikiriki maslac.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 2 teglice / 4,51 kn po teglici / 9,02 kn za sve)

Za tahini:

¼ šalice oljuštenog tostiranog sezama (1,00 kn)

1-2 žličice suncokretovog ulja (0,10 kn)

Za humus:

1 konzerva kuhanog slanutka (5,00 kn)

¼ šalice aquafabe – tekućine koja ostane od slanutka (–)

1 češanj češnjaka (0,25 kn)

2 žlice domaćeg tahinija (cijena uračunata gore)

1 žlica kikiriki maslaca (1,00 kn)

2 žlice maslinovog ulja (0,66 kn)

1 žlica limunovog soka (0,50 kn)

½ žličice dimljene paprike (0,25 kn)

Dobar prstohvat soli (0,01 kn)

Dobar prstohvat svježe mljevenog crnog papra (0,25 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Prvo pripremite tahini tako da u mlincu za kavu propulsirate sezam sa suncokretovim uljem dok ne dobijete glatku kremu. To bi moglo potrajati i koju minutu, ovisno o tome koliko vam je jak mlinac, odnosno multipraktik. Također, vjerojatno ćete s vremena na vrijeme morati špatulom postrugati stranice, a po potrebi dodajte još i mrvicu ulja.

Ocijedite slanutak, ali sačuvajte svu tekućinu (aquafabu) za kasnije. Sve sastojke za humus dodajte u multipraktik i pulsirajte dok ne bude kremasto. Ako treba dodajte još malo sačuvane tekućine, žlicu po žlicu, dok humus ne bude željene konzistencije. Poslužite ohlađeno sa nekim finim hrskavim kruhom ili pita kruhom, ili pak sa narezanim komadima svježeg povrća.

Humus će u hermetički zatvorenoj posudi u hladnjaku držati barem tjedan dana.

Spinach and Mushroom Creamy Quinoa (vegetarian) / Kremasta kvinoja sa špinatom i gljivama (vegetarijanska)

I’ve promised more quinoa recipes, ever since my grand discovery of quinoa a few weeks back, and lo and behold, I am here to deliver. This dish is very scrumptious, but is loaded with plenty of healthy things for a good measure. It also comes together super fast.

IMGP7272

IMGP7278

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields 4 servings / 1.14 EUR / 4.55 EUR for all)

2 tbsp sunflower seed oil (0.03 EUR)

1 onion (0.10 EUR)

2 tbsp butter (0.27 EUR)

250 grams Portobello mushrooms (1.00 EUR)

1 tsp salt (0.01 EUR)

1 tsp freshly ground black pepper (0.07 EUR)

1 cup quinoa (2.00 EUR)

3 cups water (–)

2 cups frozen leafy spinach (0.47 EUR)

½ cup sour cream (0.27 EUR)

½ cup shredded cheese (0.33 EUR)

IMGP7276

METHOD:

Peel and dice onion and thinly slice the mushrooms. Rinse quinoa in a fine mesh colander under a running water and set aside. Add the oil to a large pot on high heat and saute onion until slightly translucent. Throw in butter, mushrooms, salt and pepper and give a good stir. Cook for a few minutes, until the mushrooms cooks down a bit.

Now add in rinsed quinoa and water. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer with a lid cracked open for about 15 minutes. After 15 minutes stir in frozen spinach and simmer for additional five minutes, so the spinach thaws. Stir in sour cream and shredded cheese and serve immediately.

Kada sam pred nekoliko tjedana doživjela epohalno otkriće kvinoje, obećala sam vam još recepata. Ta-da, evo ga kako sam i najavila! Ovo jelo je jako bogato i ukusno, ali također ima i dovoljno zdravih sastojaka za dobru mjeru, te se osim toga i veoma brzo priprema.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 4 porcije / 8,49 kn po porciji / 33,96 kn za sve)

2 žlice suncokretovog ulja (0,20 kn)

1 luk (0,75 kn)

2 žlice maslaca (2,00 kn)

250 g šampinjona (7,50 kn)

1 žličica soli (0,01 kn)

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

1 šalica sirove kvinoje (15,00 kn)

3 šalice vode (–)

2 šalice smrznutog špinata u listovima (3,50 kn)

½ šalice kiselog vrhnja (2,00 kn)

½ šalice ribanog sira (2,50 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Ogulite i fino nasjeckajte luk te tanko narežite gljive. Isperite kvinoju u finoj cjediljci pod tekućom vodom i stavite na stranu. Ulje stavite u veći lonac na jakoj vatri, te dinstajte luk dok ne postane staklast. Dodajte maslac, gljive, sol i papar i sve dobro promiješajte. Kuhajte nekoliko minuta, dok se gljive malo ne iskuhaju.

Sada ubacite ispranu kvinoju i vodu. Pustite da zavrije, smanjite vatru, te krčkajte sa odškrinutim poklopcem 15 minuta. Nakon 15 minuta umiješajte i smrznuti špinat, te krčkajte još pet minuta da se špinat odmrzne. Za kraj umiješajte kiselo vrhnje i sir, te odmah poslužite.

Peanut Butter Bliss Balls (vegan) / Energetski zalogaji sa kikiriki maslacem (veganski)

Since I really enjoyed my first experiment with these healthy and easy snacks, I decided to whip up some more bliss balls. IMO, these taste just like Snickers, which is pretty much a win in my book.

Also, you can easily make the oat flour yourselves. Just throw some rolled oats into a food processor and pulse to grind them down in a fine powder.

IMGP7259

IMGP7260

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields 10 bliss balls / EUR for all)

10 pitted dates (0.33 EUR)

2 tbsp peanut butter (0.27 EUR)

1 cup oat flour (0.20 EUR)

1 tsp raw cacao powder (0.13 EUR)

Pinch of salt (0.01 EUR)

IMGP7261

METHOD:

Soak the dates in warm water to soften them up, about 10-15 minutes before starting. Drain the dates and add them to a food processor together with peanut butter, oat flour, cacao powder and salt. Pulse until thick dough forms and if needed add a tiny bit of water to hold it all together.

Refrigerate the dough for 30 minutes before forming into bliss balls, to ensure easier handling. Dampen your fingers slightly with water before shaping the dough into balls. Store refrigerated in an airtight container for up to five days.

IMGP7262


Pošto mi je prvi eksperiment sa ovim zdravim snackovima skroz uspio, odlučila sam smutiti još. Ove loptice me jako podsjećaju na Snickers, što je naravno fantastična stvar.

Također, zobeno brašno možete lako napraviti sami tako da samo ubacite zobene pahuljice u multipraktik i pulsirate ih dok ne dobijete fini prah.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 10 loptica / 7,01 kn za sve)

10 odkoštenih datulja (2,50 kn)

2 žlice kikiriki maslaca (2,00 kn)

1 šalica zobenog brašna (1,50 kn)

1 žlica sirovog kakao praha (1,00 kn)

Prstohvat soli (0,01 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Namočite datulje u toploj vodi 10-15 minuta prije početka da malo omekšaju. Ocijedite datulje, pa ih skupa sa kikiriki maslacem, zobenim brašnom, kakaom i soli ubacite u multipraktik. Pulsirajte dok se ne formira gusto tijesto, a po potrebi dodajte mrvicu vode da se sve lakše drži na okupu.

Tijesto stavite u hladnjak na 30 minuta kako bi vam bilo lakše formirati kuglice. Ruke malo namočite, pa prstima oblikujte kuglice od tijesta. Čuvajte u hermetički zatvorenoj posudi u hladnjaku do pet dana.

Minced Chicken, Mushroom and Veggie Stir-Fry with Peanut Sauce / Mljevena piletina, gljive i povrće iz woka u umaku od kikirikija

This is basically the same sauce from this cauliflower recipe. It was so good that I just had to have more of it. The stir-fry is greatly improvised from what we had around the fridge. I think some spring onion would be awesome here, but unfortunately we didn’t have any. Just the same, the recipe turned out delicious.

IMGP7230

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields 4 servings / 1.31 EUR per serving / 5.23 EUR for all)

For the peanut sauce:

2 tbsp soy sauce (0.27 EUR)

2 tbsp warm water (–)

1 tbsp peanut butter (0.13 EUR)

1 tbsp sugar (0.01 EUR)

½ tsp corn starch (0.01 EUR)

1 tsp toasted sesame oil (0.13 EUR)

½ tsp salt (0.01 EUR)

½ tsp red pepper flakes (0.03 EUR)

For the stir-fry:

3 tbsp sunflower seed oil (0.04 EUR)

2 cups minced chicken (2.00 EUR)

2 tbsp soy sauce (0.27 EUR)

Good pinch of salt (0.01 EUR)

Good pinch of freshly ground black pepper (0.02 EUR)

3 medium oyster mushroom clusters – around 250 grams in total (1.00 EUR)

2 carrots (0.20 EUR)

3 red horn peppers (1.00 EUR)

1 large onion (0.10 EUR)

IMGP7243

METHOD:

First prepare the peanut sauce by whisking all of the ingredients on low heat until peanut butter and corn starch are completely dissolved and then bring to a gentle simmer. Cook for a few minutes, while stirring constantly so the sauce thickens a bit. Keep the sauce warm while you prepare the rest.

Wash, peel and chop all the vegetables and mushrooms, while keeping the ingredients separated. Place a deep pan or a wok on high heat for a few minutes until thoroughly heated through. Add in sunflower seed oil, minced chicken, soy sauce, salt and black pepper. Stir well to incorporate and break the chicken in small chunks with a spatula. Stir-fry for a few minutes, until chicken is thoroughly cooked through. Then gradually add in chopped mushrooms, carrots, red peppers and onion in this exact order, taking the time to cook every ingredient for a few minutes before throwing in the new one. When all is done, pour in the peanut sauce on top and give a good stir. Serve immediately over a bed of cooked rice.

Umak u ovom jelu je u principu isti onaj iz recepta sa karfijolom jer mi je bio tako fini da sam jednostavno morala imati još. Kombinacija za wok je uvelike improvizirana od stvari koje smo imali doma po frižideru. Mislim da bi mladi luk super pasao u ovom jelu, ali mi ga na žalost nismo imali doma. Svejedno, jako sam zadovoljna sa time kako je ovaj recept na kraju ispao.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 4 porcije / 9,76 kn po porciji / 39,05 kn za sve)

Za umak od kikirikija:

2 žlice soja sosa (2,00 kn)

2 žlice tople vode (–)

1 žlica kikiriki maslaca (1,00 kn)

1 žlica šećera (0,05 kn)

½ žličice kukuruznog škroba (0,03 kn)

1 žličica tostiranog sezamovog ulja (1,00 kn)

½ žličice soli (0,01 kn)

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

Za wok:

3 žlice suncokretovog ulja (0,30 kn)

2 šalice mljevene piletine (15,00 kn)

2 žlice soja sosa (2,00 kn)

Dobar prstohvat soli (0,01 kn)

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

3 osrednja ‘grozda’ bukovača – oko 250 g sve skupa (7,50 kn)

2 mrkve (1,50 kn)

3 crvene paprike roge (7,50 kn)

1 veliki luk (0,75 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Prvo priredite umak od kikirikija tako da na slaboj vatri miješate sve sastojke, sve dok se maslac od kikirikija i kukuruzni škrob do kraja ne rastope. Pustite da sve lagano zavrije, te kuhajte nekoliko minuta uz stalno miješanje, tako da se umak zgusne. Držite umak na toplom dok pripremite sve ostalo.

Operite, ogulite i nasjeckajte svo povrće i gljive, no sve sastojke držite razdvojene. Stavite duboku tavu ili wok na jaku vatru i pustite par minuta da se dobro ugrije. Ubacite u wok suncokretovo ulje, meso, soja sos, sol i papar. Dobro promiješajte te piletinu usitnite špatulom. Kuhajte nekoliko minuta, dok meso ne bude skroz gotovo. Sada jedno po jedno ovim redoslijedom dodajte nasjeckane gljive, mrkve, paprike i luk, s time da pustite par minuta prije nego ubacite idući sastojak kako bi se sve dobro skuhalo. Kada je sve gotovo, zalijte umakom od kikirikija i dobro promiješajte. Poslužite odmah preko kuhane riže.

Olive, Basil and Sunflower Seed Spread (tapenade) / Namaz od maslina, bosiljka i suncokretovih sjemenki (tapenada)

This spread is a tapenade and pesto lovechild and I just can’t get enough of it. Since tapenade on its own is pretty intense in flavor, I like it more as a salad dressing then as a spread. But mellowed down with some sunflower seeds and infused with fresh basil, it’s just right.

This spread will keep refrigerated in an airtight container for at least a week.

IMGP7342

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields 2 jars / 1.28 EUR per jar / 2.55 EUR for all)

1 cup pitted green olives (0.80 EUR)

3 tbsp capers (0.40 EUR)

4 salted anchovy fillets (0.27 EUR)

2 small garlic cloves (0.07 EUR)

½ cup sunflower seeds (0.13 EUR)

4 tbsp olive oil (0.18 EUR)

2 tbsp lemon juice (0.27 EUR)

Large handful of fresh basil (0.40 EUR)

Good pinch of freshly ground black pepper (0.03 EUR)

IMGP7338

IMGP7339

METHOD:

Wash the olives and capers under running water and drain. Throw all of the ingredients in a food processor and grind into a chunky paste. Taste to adjust the seasoning and serve chilled. Since most of the ingredients are already really salty, I found no need for additional salt in my own version.

IMGP7344

IMGP7343


Ovaj namaz je zapravo nekakav miks između tapenade i pesta, ali meni je savršen. Pošto je tapenada sama po sebi poprilično aromatična i intenzivnog okusa, meni je draža kao dresing za salatu nego kao namaz za kruh. Ali razblažena sa suncokretovim sjemenkama i obogaćena svježim bosiljkom, baš mi je taman.

Ovaj namaz će bez problema držati u hladnjaku u hermetički zatvorenoj posudi barem tjedan dana.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 2 teglice / 9,54 kn po teglici / 19,07 kn za sve)

1 šalica odkoštenih zelenih maslina (6,00 kn)

3 žlice kapara (3,00 kn)

4 slana fileta inćuna (2,00 kn)

2 mala češnja češnjaka (0,50 kn)

½ šalice suncokretovih sjemenki (1,00 kn)

4 žlice maslinovog ulja (1,32 kn)

2 žlice limunovog soka (2,00 kn)

Veliki pregršt svježeg bosiljka (3,00 kn)

Dobar prstohvat svježe mljevenog crnog papra (0,25 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Isperite masline i kapare u cjediljci pod mlazom tekuće vode. Sve sastojke ubacite u multipraktik i pulsirajte dok ne krupno mljevenu pastu. Kušajte i prilagodite začine, te poslužite ohlađeno. Pošto je većina sastojaka već dosta slana, ja u svoju verziju namaza nisam dodavala više soli.

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields 12 burger patties / 0.21 EUR per patty / 2.46 EUR for all)

For the batter:

3 tbsp sunflower seed oil (0.04 EUR)

1 large onion (0.10 EUR)

3 garlic cloves (0.10 EUR)

½ tsp garlic powder (0.03 EUR)

1 tsp smoked paprika (0.07 EUR)

1 tsp dried oregano (0.07 EUR)

½ tsp ground coriander (0.03 EUR)

½ tsp dried chili flakes (0.03 EUR)

½ tsp freshly cracked black pepper (0.03 EUR)

1 and ½ tsp salt (0.01 EUR)

2 large carrots (0.20 EUR)

4 cups precooked black beans (0.80 EUR)

4 tbsp ketchup (0.13 EUR)

2 tbsp fresh chopped parsley (0.13 EUR)

2 tbsp ground flax seeds (0.03 EUR)

1 burger bun (0.13 EUR)

½ cup plant based milk (0.20 EUR)

½ cup breadcrumbs (0.13 EUR)

Additional:

½ cup breadcrumbs for coating (0.13 EUR)

Oil for frying or roasting (0.07 EUR)

IMGP7298

IMGP7299

METHOD:

Place the burger bun in a small bowl and cover with milk. Allow to soak while you prepare everything else. Peel and finely dice the onion and mince the garlic. Peel the carrot and grate it on a box grater. Add 3 tablespoons of oil to a small pan on a high heat and saute the onion for about five minutes until translucent. Now add in fresh garlic, garlic powder, paprika, oregano, coriander, chili, black pepper and salt and stir for a minute so the spices get fragrant. Dump in shredded carrot and cook for a few minutes until softened.

Pulse the beans with ketchup in a food processor until creamy. Transfer the beans to a bowl, together with carrot and onion mix, parsley and flax seeds. Using your hands, rip the soaked and softened burger bun to small pieces into this mix and give everything a very good stir. Gradually add in the breadcrumbs as needed, so the mix thickens up and is not too sticky. Taste and adjust seasonings, then refrigerate the batter for half an hour so all the flavors have time to combine and the mixture is easier to handle.

After 30 minutes shape the batter into burger patties and coat each patty with breadcrumbs on all sides. Fry the patties in a bit of oil on stovetop for a few minutes on each side, or lightly brush with oil, spread on a parchment lined baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes at 200°C to crisp them up. Serve warm, adorned with burger paraphernalia of your choice.

Dragi prijatelji, ovi burgeri su prefini! I jeftini!!! U njima su samo grah, kruh, mrkve i hrpa začina, ali ispali su baš za prste polizati. Mljac!

SASTOJCI:

(Za 12 burgera / 1,54 kn po burgeru / 18,52 kn za sve)

Za smjesu:

3 žlice suncokretovog ulja (0,30 kn)

1 veliki luk (0,75 kn)

3 češnja češnjaka (0,75 kn)

½ žličice sušenog češnjaka u prahu (0,25 kn)

1 žličica dimljene slatke paprike (0,50 kn)

1 žličica sušenog origana (0,50 kn)

½ žličice sušenog korijandera u prahu (0,25 kn)

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

½ žličice svježe mljevenog crnog papra (0,25 kn)

1 i ½ žličica soli (0,02 kn)

2 velike mrkve (1,50 kn)

4 šalice kuhanog crnog graha (6,00 kn)

4 žlice kečapa (1,00 kn)

2 žlice svježeg nasjeckanog peršina (1,00 kn)

2 žlice mljevenih sjemenki lana (0,20 kn)

1 žemlja (1,00 kn)

½ šalice sojinog ili drugog biljnog mlijeka (1,50 kn)

½ šalice krušnih mrvica (1,00 kn)

Dodatno:

½ šalice krušnih mrvica za paniranje (1,00 kn)

Ulje za pečenje ili prženje (0,50 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Žemlju stavite u malu zdjelicu i zalijte s mlijekom, pa ju ostavite da se namače dok pripremite sve ostalo. Ogulite i fino nasjeckajte luk i češnjak, te ogulite i naribajte mrkve. U malu tavicu dodajte 3 žlice ulja pa na jakoj vatri kratko prodinstajte luk dok ne bude staklast. Na luk dodajte svježi i sušeni češnjak, papriku, origano, korijander, čili, papar i sol, te promiješajte i kuhajte minutu, samo da začini zamiriše. Ubacite na to ribanu mrkvu, te kratko dinstajte da omekša.

Grah skupa sa kečapom propulsirajte u multipraktiku da bude kremast. Preselite grah u zdjelu skupa sa dinstanom mrkvom, peršinom i mljevenim lanom. Rukama u to nadrobite namočenu žemlju, pa sve jako dobro promiješajte. Postepeno dodajte krušnih mrvica, koliko bude trebalo da se smjesa zgusne i ne bude jako ljepljiva. Takvu gotovu smjesu stavite u hladnjak na pola sata kako bi se arome sjedinile i kako bi smjesom bilo lakše rukovati.

Nakon 30 minuta od smjese formirajte burgere, pa svaki burger obložite krušnim mrvicama. Burgere kratko popecite sa obje strane na malo ulja u tavi, ili ih jednostavno premažite sa malo ulja te ubacite u pećnicu zagrijanu na 200°C na 20 minuta da se malo zahrskaju. Poslužite toplo, sa vama najdražim dodatcima.

Raw vegan chocolate cake / Sirova veganska torta od čokolade

This cake is da bomb! It’s super scrumptious and rich, but also pretty healthy for you. So you have a win-win situation here. It also mostly comes together in a food processor so you won’t have to wash a mountain of dishes. I made this for my birthday and it was a big hit as pretty much everyone loved it – vegans, omnivores and everyone in between.

IMGP7313

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields 1 cake / 10.52 EUR)

For the dough:

3 cups pitted dates (3.00 EUR)

2 cups sunflower seeds (0.53 EUR)

2 tbsp peanut butter (0.27 EUR)

3 tbsp raw cacao powder (0.40 EUR)

1 tsp natural stevia powder (0.07 EUR)

1 tsp pure vanilla extract (0.03 EUR)

Good pinch of salt (0.01 EUR)

3-4 tbsp plant based milk (0.07 EUR)

1 cup unsalted cashews (2.00 EUR)

For the chocolate ganache:

200 grams good quality dark chocolate (2.67 EUR)

1 tsp coconut oil (0.07 EUR)

1 tsp natural stevia powder (0.07 EUR)

¼ cup plant based milk (0.10 EUR)

For the topping:

¼ cup crushed cashews (0.50 EUR)

2-3 rows of white chocolate (0.67 EUR)

½ tsp coconut oil (0.03 EUR)

Additional:

Coconut oil for greasing the pan (0.03 EUR)

IMGP7319

METHOD:

Before starting, soak the pitted dates in warm water for about 20 minutes so they soften up a bit, then drain. Lightly grease a baking tray with coconut oil and line it with parchment paper. In a food processor, grind the sunflower seeds into a fine powder. Add in drained dates, peanut butter, cacao powder, stevia, vanilla and salt, then pulse until a uniform dough forms. Add in milk as needed, a tablespoon at the time. Finally, throw in the cashews and pulse a few times so there is still some crunch left to the dough.

Press the dough into a prepared baking tray and even it out. Throw it in a freezer for about 15 minutes before adding ganache. To prepare the ganache, simply melt the chocolate with coconut oil, stevia and milk. Stir until silky and smooth, then pour over the cake base and quickly even out with a spatula. Sprinkle crushed cashews on top of the ganache. Melt the white chocolate with half a teaspoon of coconut oil and transfer into a freezer bag. Cut the end of the bag and drizzle the white chocolate over the cake. Return everything to a freezer for a couple of hours to firm up and set.

Let the cake sit at room temperature for about 15 minutes before cutting it into small squares. Store it in a refrigerator and serve chilled.

Ova torta je totalna bomba! Apsolutno je fantastična i bogata, no ujedno je i poprilično zdrava, tako da imate idealnu situaciju. Većinu posla možete odraditi sa multipraktikom pa vas na kraju svega neće čekati planina od suđa. Ja sam ju radila za svoj rođendan i oduševila je sve po redu – vegane, svejede i sve one između.

(Za 1 tortu / 78,71 kn)

Za tijesto:

3 šalice odkoštenih datulja (22,50 kn)

2 šalice suncokretovih sjemenki (4,00 kn)

2 žlice kikiriki maslaca (2,00 kn)

3 žlice sirovog kakao praha (3,00 kn)

1 žličica prirodne stevije u prahu (0,50 kn)

1 žličica ekstrakta od vanilije (0,20 kn)

Dobar prstohvat soli (0,01 kn)

3-4 žlice sojinog ili kojeg drugog biljnog mlijeka (0,50 kn)

1 šalica neslanih indijskih oraščića (15,00 kn)

Za čokoladnu glazuru:

200 g dobre tamne čokolade (20,00 kn)

1 žličica kokosovog ulja (0,50 kn)

1 žličica prirodne stevije u prahu (0,50 kn)

¼ šalice sojinog ili kojeg drugog biljnog mlijeka (0,75 kn)

Za ukrašavanje:

¼ šalice drobljenih neslanih indijskih oraščića (3,75 kn)

2-3 reda bijele čokolade (5,00 kn)

½ žličice kokosovog ulja (0,25 kn)

Dodatno:

Kokosovo ulje za namastiti protvan (0,25 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Dvadesetak minuta prije nego počnete namočite datulje u toploj vodi da malo omekšaju, pa ih ocijedite. Malo namastite protvan kokosovim uljem i obložite ga papirom za pečenje. U multipraktiku sameljite suncokretove sjemenke u fini prah. Dodajte ocijeđene datulje, kakao prah, steviju, vaniliju i sol, pa pulsirajte dok ne dobijete jednolično tijesto. Po potrebi nadodajte i mrvicu mlijeka, žlicu po žlicu. Na kraju ubacite indijske oraščiće i par puta sve skupa propulsirajte da ih usitnite, ali da vam tijesto i dalje ima nešto hrskavoće.

Tijesto rukama utisnite u pripremljeni kalup i poravnajte. Stavite u zamrzivač na petnaestak minuta prije nego zalijete glazurom. Glazuru pripremite tako da otopite čokoladu sa kokosovim uljem, stevijom i mlijekom. Miješajte glazuru dok ne bude svilenkasta i glatka, pa ju prelijte preko tijesta i brzo poravnajte špatulom. Po glazuri sada posipajte drobljene indijske oraščiće. Bijelu čokoladu rastopite sa pola žličice kokosovog ulja i preselite u malu vrećicu za smrzavanje. Odrežite kut vrećice i prošarajte kolač sa bijelom čokoladom. Sada tortu vratite u zamrzivač i ostavite ju na par sati da se stisne.

Petnaestak minuta prije rezanja izvadite tortu iz zamrzivača i ostavite ju na sobnoj temperaturi. Razrežite ju na male kockice, te čuvajte u hladnjaku, a poslužite ohlađenu.
