Hot and Sour Soup with Dumplings (vegan) / Kiselo-ljuta juha sa valjušcima (veganska)

A whole while back I bought some gyoza dumplings from Lidl which were in all honesty not that great. I mean, they could pass, but I wasn’t all that thrilled with the prospect of eating them and so they remained lingering in my freezer for a few months. I finally got the idea to make a hot and sour soup and to dump those dumplings in there and boy, was that a good idea. This soup turned out fantastic and now I’m kinda sorry that we don’t have any more of those sad dumplings.

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields 6 servings / 1.11 EUR per serving / 6.68 EUR for all)

2 tbsp sunflower seed oil (0.03 EUR)

1 large onion (0.10 EUR)

2 large carrots (0.20 EUR)

2 parsley roots with leaves (0.40 EUR)

1 kohlrabi with leaves (0.40 EUR)

3 tbsp all-purpose flour (0.02 EUR)

1 tsp Gochujang – Korean chili paste (0.07 EUR)

1 tsp dried garlic (0.07 EUR)

Good pinch of salt (0.01 EUR)

Good pinch of freshly ground black pepper (0.02 EUR)

8 cups veggie broth (0.53 EUR)

2 tbsp tomato paste (0.27 EUR)

1 block of smoked tofu (1.00 EUR)

8 shiitake mushrooms (0.53 EUR)

3 tbsp soy sauce (0.20 EUR)

400 grams frozen vegan dumplings of your choice (2.67 EUR)

1 tsp toasted sesame oil (0.13 EUR)

2 tbsp apple cyder vinegar (0.03 EUR)

IMG_2447

METHOD:

Wash, peel and dice up all the veggies and tofu. Keep the kohlrabi and parsley leaves separated. Place a deep pot on high heat and add in the oil, onion, carrots, parsley roots and kohlrabi (not the leaves!). Stir and cook for about 10 minutes, until slightly caramelized. Add in flour, Gochujang, garlic, salt and pepper and give a good stir, so that all the veggies are coated in flour and spices. Gradually add in veggie broth and keep stirring to dissolve the flour. Then add in the tomato paste, smoked tofu, mushrooms and soy sauce. Bring to a rolling boil, reduce heat and simmer with a lid cracked open for about ten minutes.

Add in the frozen dumplings and reserved parsley and kohlrabi leaves, then cook until the dumplings are done (mine took about 10 minutes, but check the package instructions). Remove from heat, stir in sesame oil and vinegar, then taste to adjust the seasoning. Serve warm.

This soup also reheats really well, so it’s a great meal prep option too.

Ima već sto godina da smo u Lidlu kupili te neke gyoza dumplingse koji nam iskreno i nisu bili baš nešto prefini. Mislim, ono, dali su se pojesti, ali ne baš sa nekim posebnim guštom. S obzirom na to, tako su oni stajali u frizeru nekoliko mjeseci. I onda mi je napokon sinulo da sa njima napravim kiselo-ljutu juhu, a to je bome ispala jedna od boljih ideja. Juha je bila baš jako ukusna, pa mi je sve nekako i žao da sada nemamo više tih otužnih dumplingsa.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 6 porcija / 8,33 kn po porciji / 49,96 kn za sve)

2 žlice suncokretovog ulja (0,20 kn)

1 veliki luk (0,75 kn)

2 velike mrkve (1,50 kn)

2 korjena peršina sa lišćem (3,00 kn)

1 korabica sa lišćem (3,00 kn)

3 žlice glatkog brašna (0,15 kn)

1 žličica Gochujanga – korejske čili paste (0,50 kn)

1 žličica sušenog češnjaka u prahu (0,50 kn)

Dobar prstohvat soli (0,01 kn)

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

8 šalica povrtnog temeljca (4,00 kn)

2 žlice koncentrata od rajčice (2,00 kn)

1 dimljeni tofu (7,50 kn)

8 gljiva shiitaka (4,00 kn)

3 žlice soja sosa (1,50 kn)

400 g smrznutih veganskih dumplingsa (valjušaka) po izboru (20,00 kn)

1 žličica tostiranog sezamovog ulja (1,00 kn)

2 žlice jabučnog octa (0,20 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Operite, ogulite i nasjeckajte svo povrće i tofu. Lišće peršina i korabice držite sa strane. Duboki lonac stavite na jaku vatru pa dodajte ulje, luk, mrkvu, korijen peršina i korabicu (bez lišća!). Promiješajte i kuhajte desetak minuta da se sve blago karamelizira. Dodajte brašno, Gochujang, češnjak, sol i papar, te dobro promiješajte da se svo povrće obloži brašnom i začinima. Postepeno ulijevajte temeljac uz stalno miješanje kako bi ste otopili brašno. Onda dodajte još i koncentrat rajčice, dimljeni tofu, gljive i soja sos. Pustite da zavrije, smanjite vatru i krčkajte sa odškrinutim poklopcem desetak minuta.

Ubacite smrznute dumplingse i lišće peršina i korabice koje ste sačuvali, pa kuhajte dok dumplingsi ne budu gotovi (mojima je trebalo jedno 10 minuta, ali provjerite upute na pakiranju). Maknite juhu sa vatre, umiješajte sezamovo ulje i ocat te kušajte i prilagodite začine. Poslužite toplo.

Ova se juhica odlično podgrijava, tako da je ujedno odlična opcija i za pripremiti unaprijed.

Cabbage and Pea Curry (vegan) / Curry od kupusa i graška (veganski)

I don’t know about you, but I love cooking with cabbage since it is such a cheap, healthy and delicious ingredient. Cabbage is also a pretty sturdy vegetable which can last for ages in the fridge – it just never seems to go bad, which is another reason why I love having it around. This curry is really easy and delicious, so give it a go if you’re in a mood for something aromatic and cozy. We’ve had it served with cooked barley, but rice or any other grain of your choice would work just as well too.

Ne znam kako je kod vas, ali ja baš volim kuhati sa kupusom pošto je on tako jeftin, zdrav i ukusan sastojak. Osim toga, kupus je i jako otporan te u hladnjaku može trajati stvarno dugo – čini se da se nikako ne kvari, te je to još jedan razlog zašto ga volim imati doma. Ovaj curry je jako jednostavan i ukusan, pa ga svakako isprobajte ako ste raspoloženi za nešto toplo i aromatično. Mi smo ga jeli uz kuhani ječam, ali riža ili bilo koja druga žitarica po vašem izboru bi također bila super.

Ubacite u lonac narezani kupus, grašak, koncentrat rajčice i vodu. Dobro promiješajte, smanjite vatru i poklopite. Krčkajte poklopljeno 20-tak minuta uz povremeno miješanje.

Homemade Ginger Garlic Paste (vegan) / Pasta od đumbira i češnjaka (veganska)

While ginger garlic paste is a staple in Indian cuisine, I find that it’s also a great staple to simply have lying around and adding to any aromatic dishes. Another thing worth mentioning are the health benefits of both garlic and ginger, so this paste is an excellent immune system booster, especially in there cold months when we all need a little bit of extra help.

Thumb-sized piece of ginger (0.40 EUR)

Pasta od đumbira i češnjaka je jedan od bitnijih sastojaka u indijskoj kuhinji, no po meni je ona odlična za imati uvijek pri ruci i po potrebi ubaciti u sva aromatična jela. Ono što je također bitno za naglasiti je da su i đumbir i češnjak poznati po svojim ljekovitim svojstvima, tako da je ova pasta ujedno i odlična za vaš imunitet. A mislim da nam sada u hladnijim mjesecima svima može dobro doći malo dodatne pomoći po pitanju zdravlja.

SASTOJCI:

(8,20 kn)

2 glavice češnjaka (5,00 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Ogulite i grubo narežite češnjak i đumbir. Ubacite u multipraktik skupa sa uljem, pa pulsirajte dok pasta ne bude skroz glatka. Čuvajte u hladnjaku u hermetički zatvorenoj posudi, gdje pasta može trajati i do mjesec dana.

Carrot and Parsnip Coconut Soup (vegan) / Krem juha od mrkve, pastrnjaka i kokosa (veganska)

You’ve probably noticed by now that creamy soups are definitely my thing. They are usually quite easy to make, so I’ll whip up a big pot at least once a week. Paired with a crispy chunk of some tasty bread and maybe a salad, such soups make a well-rounded meal for me. They also reheat great and are therefore an excellent meal-prep option. The combo of earthy carrots and parsnips with sweet coconut in this iteration is splendid, so do give it a go if you’re into delicious creamy soups.

Do sada ste već vjerojatno zaključili da volim krem juhe. Što nije nimalo čudno, pošto ih je obično lako za pripremiti pa nam ja barem jednom tjedno skuham veliki lonac. Kada se takva juha spari sa komadom finog, hrskavog kruha i još nekom salatom, za mene je to onda cijeli zaokruženi obrok. S obzirom da se taj tip juha i dobro podgrijava, odlična je opcija za spremiti unaprijed i ponijeti na posao. Kombinacija dubokih zemljanih aroma mrkve i pastrnjaka sa slatkim kokosom u ovoj iteraciji je izvrsna, pa definitivno isprobajte recept ako ste ljubitelj finih, kremastih juhica.

Chicken and Purple Cabbage Noodles / Kineski rezanci s piletinom i crvenim zeljem

Oh hey, here’s another noodle recipe for you all to enjoy. We can never have too many of those floating around, right?

IMGP8600

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields 4 servings / 1.33 EUR per serving / 5.31 EUR for all)

For the chicken:

1 large boneless skinless chicken breast (2.00 EUR)

1 tbsp sunflower seed oil (0.01 EUR)

1 tbsp soy sauce (0.07 EUR)

Good pinch of salt (0.01 EUR)

Good pinch of freshly ground black pepper (0.02 EUR)

For the stir-fry:

3 squares of Chinese noodles (1.60 EUR)

2 tbsp sunflower seed oil, divided (0.03 EUR)

1 large onion (0.10 EUR)

2 green peppers (0.80 EUR)

3 cups of shredded purple cabbage (0.20 EUR)

4 garlic cloves (0.13 EUR)

1 tsp Gochujang – Korean chili paste (0.07 EUR)

Good pinch of salt (0.01 EUR)

2 tbsp soy sauce (0.13 EUR)

1 tsp toasted sesame oil (0.13 EUR)

IMGP8597

METHOD:

Cut the chicken into thin strips. Toss it with oil, soy sauce, salt and pepper and leave to rest in the fridge for at least 30 minutes, but best overnight. In the meantime, cook the noodles according to package instructions to al dente. Rinse under cold water to get rid of residual heat and stop the cooking process, then drain. Wash, peel and chop up all the veggies.

Place a wok or a deep skillet on medium high heat and allow to thoroughly warm up. Add in a bit of oil then fry up the chicken until crispy. It’s best to do this in two batches, so you don’t overcrowd the pan. Remove all the chicken from the wok and set aside. Add in the remaining oil and dump in the onions, peppers and cabbage. Cook for a few minutes to slightly caramelize before adding in minced garlic and Gochujang. Give a good stir and cook briefly. Dump in the noodles, chicken, soy sauce and sesame oil. Cook for about five minutes, until everything is thoroughly warmed up and the noodles at the bottom of the pan start crisping up slightly. Taste and adjust seasoning, then serve immediately.

2 žlice suncokretovog ulja, podijeljene (0,20 kn)

1 veliki luk (0,75 kn kn)

2 zelene paprike (6,00 kn)

3 šalice ribanog ljubičastog kupusa (1,50 kn)

4 češnja češnjaka (1,00 kn)

1 žličica Gochujanga – korejske čili paste (0,50 kn)

2 žlice soja sosa (1,00 kn)

1 žličica tostiranog sezamovog ulja (1,00 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Piletinu narežite na tanke trakice. Pomiješajte sa uljem, soja sosom, soli i paprom, te ostavite u hladnjaku da se marinira minimalno pola sata, a najbolje preko noći. U međuvremenu skuhajte rezance prema uputama na pakiranju da budu al dente. Isperite ih dobro pod mlazom hladne vode da se prestanu kuhati od zaostale topline te ocijedite. Operite, ogulite i nasjeckajte svo povrće.

Wok ili duboku tavu stavite na srednje jaku vatru i pustite da se dobro ugrije. Dodajte malo ulja, pa na njemu ispržite piletinu dok ne bude hrskava. Za najbolje rezultate je najbolje to napraviti u dvije manje ture kako vam wok ne bi bio prenatrpan. Gotovu piletinu maknite iz woka i stavite na stranu. Dodajte u wok preostalo ulje, luk, paprike i kupus. Kuhajte oko pet minuta, da se povrće lagano karamelizira, pa onda ubacite sjeckani češnjak i Gochujang. Dobro promiješajte i još kratko kuhajte te dodajte tjesteninu, piletinu, soja sos i sezamovo ulje. Kuhajte jedno pet minuta da se sve dobro ugrije, a tjestenina na dnu woka blago zahrska. Kušajte i prilagodite začine, pa poslužite odmah.
