Easy Veggie and Brown Rice Risotto (vegan) / Jednostavni rižoto od povrća i smeđe riže (vegan)

If you haven’t been fully appalled by my lazy and not-at-all-legit way of cooking risotto, here’s another equally simple recipe for you from the same arsenal. I decided to use only a broccoli stalk in this recipe which would otherwise go to waste and saved the broc florets for something else. The main reasoning for this was the stalk’s longer cooking time, as the florets would basically turn into a grey mush by the end.

IMGP8423

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields 6 servings / 0.52 EUR per serving / 3.09 EUR for all)

2 tbsp sunflower seed oil (0.03 EUR)

1 onion (0.10 EUR)

4 garlic cloves (0.13 EUR)

3 carrots (0.30 EUR)

1 broccoli stalk (0.67 EUR)

1 bay leaf (0.03 EUR)

1 tsp dried basil (0.07 EUR)

1 tsp curry powder (0.07 EUR)

1 tsp sweet Hungarian paprika (0.03 EUR)

1 tsp garlic powder (0.07 EUR)

½ tsp dried red pepper flakes (0.03 EUR)

½ tsp salt (0.01 EUR)

Good pinch of freshly ground black pepper (0.02 EUR)

1 tbsp tomato paste (0.13 EUR)

1 cup frozen peas (0.20 EUR)

2 cups brown rice (0.80 EUR)

6 cups veggie broth (0.40 EUR)

IMGP8422

METHOD:

Peel, wash and finely dice all the veggies. Add the oil, onion, fresh garlic, carrots and broccoli stalk to a pot and saute for a few minutes until veggies slightly caramelize. Add in bay leaf, basil, curry, paprika, garlic powder, red pepper, salt and black pepper, stir and cook for just a minute so the spices become fragrant. Finally, add in tomato paste, peas, rice and veggie broth. Give a good stir and bring to a rolling boil. Once boiling, reduce heat and simmer with a lid cracked open for 45 minutes, until rice is thoroughly cooked through. Stir occasionally and add a splash of water as needed. Serve immediately or portion out for later.

Ako niste bili u potpunosti zgroženi mojim lijenim i nimalo legitimnim načinom kuhanja rižota, evo vam još jedan jednako jednostavan recept iz istog arsenala. U ovoj sam kombinaciji odlučila iskoristiti samo stabljiku brokule (čisto da se ne baci), a ne i cvjetiće koje sam sačuvala za neki drugi recept. Glavni razlog za to je bio što se stabljika kuha puno duže, a cvjetići su brzo gotovi pa bi se u ovom jelu samo pretvorili u sivu kašu.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 6 porcija / 3,84 kn po porciji / 23,06 kn za sve)

2 žlice suncokretovog ulja (0,20 kn)

1 luk (0,75 kn)

4 češnja češnjaka (1,00 kn)

3 mrkve (2,25 kn)

1 stabljika brokule (5,00 kn)

1 lovorov list (0,20 kn)

1 žličica sušenog bosiljka (0,50 kn)

1 žličica curry praha (0,50 kn)

1 žličica slatke paprike (0,25 kn)

1 žličica češnjaka u prahu (0,50 kn)

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

½ žličice soli (0,01 kn)

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

1 žlica koncentrata od rajčice (1,00 kn)

1 šalica smrznutog graška (1,50 kn)

2 šalice smeđe riže (6,00 kn)

6 šalica povrtnog temeljca (3,00 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Operite, ogulite i fino nasjeckajte svo povrće. Ulje, luk, svježi češnjak, mrkve i stabljiku brokule ubacite u lonac na jakoj vatri, pa par minuta dinstajte da se povrće blago karamelizira. Dodajte lovor, bosiljak, curry, papriku, češnjak u prahu, čili, sol i papar, promiješajte i kuhajte samo minutu da vam začini zamiriše. Sada dodajte i koncentrat rajčice, grašak, rižu i temeljac. Promiješajte i pustite da zavrije, pa smanjite vatru i krčkajte sa odškrinutim poklopcem oko 45 minuta, sve dok riža nije do kraja kuhana. Povremeno promiješajte i ako treba dodajte još malo vode. Poslužite odmah ili rasporedite u porcije za kasnije.

Postoji cijela znanost iza riječi umami i što ona točno znači po pitanju okusa. Ova je juhica definitivno jaka po pitanju umamija i jako je bogata i kremasta. Ja bi ju doslovce mogla natakati u sebe iz kante koliko mi je fina. S druge strane, sastojci su manje-više skromni,a sama priprema jako jednostavna.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 4 izdašne porcije / 5.82 kn po porciji / 23,26 kn za sve)

1 luk (0,75 kn)

1 glavica brokule (6,00 kn)

2 mrkve (1,50 kn)

3 srednje velika krumpira (1,50 kn)

2 sušene rajčice (1,00 kn)

6 gljiva shiitaka (3,00 kn)

1 žličica mljevenog korijandera (0,50 kn)

1 žlica sušenog peršina (0,50 kn)

3 žlice soja sosa (3,00 kn)

6 šalica povrtnog temeljca (3,00 kn)

1 žličica tostiranog sezamovog ulja (1,00 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Operite, ogulite i nasjeckajtesvo povrće, uključujući i stabljiku od brokule. Krupno narežite gljive. Sve sastojke osim sezamovog ulja ubacite u lonac i pustite da zavrije.

Kada juha zavrije, smanjite vatru i krčkajte sa odškrinutim poklopcem 30-tak minuta, dok povrće ne bude kuhano. Maknite juhu sa vatre, dodajte sezamovo ulje i propasirajteštapnim mikserom da bude kremasto. Kušajte i prilagodite začine, pa odmah poslužite ili sačuvajte za kasnije, pošto se ova juhica odlično podgrijava.

Grilled Salmon with Broccoli and Pea Quinoa / Losos na žaru sa kvinojom, brokulom i graškom

Since Lent is underway and many of you are incorporating more fish and seafood into your diet, here is a lunch idea for you to try out.

IMGP8270

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields 2 generous servings / 3.14 EUR per serving / 6.27 EUR for all)

For the salmon:

300 grams salmon fillets (4.00 EUR)

1 tbsp olive oil (0.04 EUR)

Good pinch of salt (0.01 EUR)

Good pinch of freshly ground black pepper (0.02 EUR)

For quinoa:

1 broccoli flower (0.80 EUR)

1 tbsp olive oil (0.04 EUR)

1 small onion (0.07 EUR)

2 garlic cloves (0.07 EUR)

1 large carrot (0.10 EUR)

½ cup frozen peas (0.10 EUR)

1 tbsp tomato paste (0.13 EUR)

½ tsp salt (0.01 EUR)

½ tsp freshly ground black pepper (0.03 EUR)

½ tsp garlic powder (0.03 EUR)

½ tsp red pepper flakes (0.03 EUR)

½ tsp ground coriander (0.03 EUR)

1 tsp sweet Hungarian paprika (0.03 EUR)

1 tbsp dried parsley (0.07 EUR)

1 bay leaf (0.03 EUR)

½ cup quinoa (0.50 EUR)

1 and ½ cups water (–)

Optional for serving:

½ of a lemon (0.13 EUR)

IMGP8268

METHOD:

Wash and pat dry the salmon. Set aside. Wash, peel and chop up all the veggies, including the broccoli stem. I decided to steam the broccoli florets on top of the quinoa pot for some bright green deliciousness, but feel free to dump those straight into the pot if you’re too lazy for this extra step. Wash quinoa in a colander under the running water.

Add the oil to a pot, then sauté the onion for a few minutes until slightly translucent. Add in garlic, broccoli stem and carrots. Stir and cook those for a few minutes to slightly caramelize before adding in peas, tomato paste, salt, pepper, garlic powder, red pepper flakes, coriander, paprika, parsley, bay leaf, quinoa and water. Bring to a rolling boil, place a steaming rack with broccoli florets on top and cover tightly with a lid. Reduce heat to low and cook undisturbed for 15 minutes.

While the quinoa is cooking, season salmon with olive oil, salt and pepper. Cook on a grilling pan for about 3-4 minutes on each side. Once the quinoa is cooked, plate everything and serve drizzled with lemon juice and some lemon wedges.

Pošto je vrijeme korizme i mnogi se trude u svoj meni ubaciti više ribe i morskih plodova, evo vam jedna ideja za ručak koju možete isprobati.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 2 izdašne porcije / 23,39 kn po porciji / 46,78 kn za sve)

Za losos:

300 g filea lososa (30,00 kn)

1 žlica maslinovog ulja (0,33 kn)

Dobar prstohvat soli (0,01 kn)

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

Za kvinoju:

1 glavica brokule (6,00 kn)

1 žlica maslinovog ulja (0,33 kn)

1 mali luk (0,50 kn)

2 češnja češnjaka (0,50 kn)

1 velika mrkva (0,75 kn)

½ šalice smrznutog graška (0,75 kn)

1 žlica koncentrata od rajčice (1,00 kn)

½ žličice soli (0,01 kn)

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

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

½ žličice mljevenog korijandera (0,25 kn)

1 žličica slatke crvene paprike (0,25 kn)

1 žlica sušenog peršina (0,50 kn)

1 lovorov list (0,20 kn)

½ šalice kvinoje (3,75 kn)

1 i ½ šalica vode (–)

Po želji za serviranje:

½ limuna (1,00 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Operite i kuhinjskim ručnikom posušite losos, pa stavite na stranu. Operite, ogulite i nasjeckajte povrće, uključujući i stabljiku brokule. Ja sam cvjetiće brokule skuhala na pari u istom loncu iznad kvinoje, da imamo nešto zeleno i hrskavo, ali vi slobodno sve ubacite zajedno u lonac ako ste lijeni za taj ekstra korak. Kvinoju dobro isperite u cjediljci pod tekućom vodom.

Ulje dodajte u lonac i par minuta dinstajte luk da postane staklast. Ubacite u lonac češnjak, stabljiku brokule i mrkvu. Promiješajte i kuhajte koju minutu da se sve blago karamelizira, pa onda dodajte grašak, koncentrat rajčice, sol, papar, češnjak u prahu, čili, korijander, slatku papriku, peršin, lovor, kvinoju i vodu. Pustite da zavrije, stavite preko toga rešetku za kuhanje na pari sa cvjetićima brokule, te sve skupa čvrsto poklopite. Smanjite vatru na laganu i sve zajedno kuhajte 15 minuta.

Dok se kvinoja kuha, losos začinite maslinovim uljem, solju i paprom. Pržite ga oko 3-4 minute sa svake strane na gril tavi. Kada je kvinoja gotova, sve skupa servirajte pokapano sokom od limuna i sa još kojom kriškom limuna za dekoraciju.

Since spring is now officially here, I have a super healthy and vibrant green soup for you. If you’re looking for ways to pack more nutrients into your diet, definitely check this recipe out. I used radish leaves in here because I had those on hand after buying a big bunch of radishes (yes, the leaves are edible and really healthy, too). However, feel free to sub the radish leaves for any other leafy greens of your choice like spinach, kale, chard or anything else you might fancy.

Pošto nam je proljeće i službeno započelo, evo vam jedna jako zdrava zelena juhica. Ako želite svoju prehranu obogatiti sa dodatnim vitaminima definitivno isprobajte ovaj recept. Ja sam u juhu stavila i lišće od rotkvice jer sam imala ogromnu količinu nakon što sam kupila veliki pušlek (lišće ne samo da je jestivo, već je i jako zdravo). Međutim, vi slobodno lišće rotkvice zamijenite nekom drugom zelenjavom po vašem izboru, kao što su špinat, kelj, blitva ili što već preferirate.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 6 izdašnih porcija / 4,42 kn po porciji / 26,50 kn za sve)

3 žlice maslinovog ulja (0,99 kn)

2 luka (1,50 kn)

3 češnja češnjaka (0,75 kn)

1 glavica brokule (6,00 kn)

500 grama prokulica (7,50 kn)

1 žličica češnjaka u prahu (0,50 kn)

1 žličica mljevenog korijandera (0,50 kn)

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

1 žličica soli (0.01 kn)

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

8 šalica vode (–)

2 šalice smrznutog graška (3,00 kn)

Veliki pregršt svježeg lišća rotkvice (3,00 kn)

Sok od 1 limuna (2,00 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Operite, ogulite i nasjeckajte svo povrće, uključujući i stabljiku od brokule. U velikom loncu luk prodinstajte na maslinovom ulju dok ne postane staklast. Dodajte češnjak, stabljiku brokule i prokulice, pa kuhajte da se povrće lagano karamelizira, te onda ubacite češnjak u prahu, korijander, čili, sol, papar i vodu. Pustite da zavrije, smanjite vatru te onda krčkajte sa odškrinutim poklopcem 10 minuta.

Nakon 10 minuta dodajte cvjetiće brokule i grašak, pa kuhajte još 10 minuta. Na kraju dodajte lišće rotkvice i kuhajte sve još samo koju minutu da lišće povene. Maknite juhu s vatre, iscijedite u nju limun i pulsirajte štapnim mikserom dok ne bude kremasta. Ako želite, nešto krupnih komadića možete prethodno sačuvati sa strane za ukrašavanje. Kušajte, prilagodite začine i poslužite. Također, ova se juhica i super podgrijava pa ju možete pripremiti i unaprijed.

Spicy Broccoli Soup (vegan) / Pikantna juha od brokule (veganska)

You know how when you buy a head of broccoli you always throw away a huge stem? You don’t throw it away? Then congrats, you’ve been using the broccoli correctly for the whole time! However, up until recently, I had no idea that you can actually eat the broccoli stem and that it, in fact, has an even better nutritious blueprint than the florets. This soup utilizes whole broccoli and thus produces a ton of food and very little waste. That is, of course, a huge win in my book.

IMGP8001

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields 6 generous servings / 0.61 EUR per serving / 3.65 EUR for all)

2 tbsp sunflower seed oil (0.03 EUR)

1 onion (0.10 EUR)

3 garlic cloves (0.10 EUR)

2 heads of broccoli (1.60 EUR)

6 carrots (0.60 EUR)

6 medium sized potatoes (0.40 EUR)

1 tsp salt (0.01 EUR)

1 tsp Gochujang – Korean chili paste (0.07 EUR)

1 tbsp tomato paste (0.13 EUR)

1 tsp smoked paprika (0.07 EUR)

1 tsp garlic powder (0.07 EUR)

1 tsp freshly ground black pepper (0.07 EUR)

6 cups vegetable broth (0.40 EUR)

IMGP8003

METHOD:

Wash, peel and chop up all the veggies. Peel the outer layer of broccoli stems and dice those up as well. I wanted to keep some chunks in my soup, so I cooked broccoli florets and half of the carrots in a separate pot of salted water to al dente. You can do that too, or just keep everything in the same pot to make things easier and then when the soup is done, blend it all together.

Add the oil to a deep pot, then sauté the onion for a few minutes until slightly translucent. Add in minced garlic and stir for just a minute before adding in broccoli stems, carrots, potatoes, salt, Gochujang, tomato paste, paprika, garlic powder and black pepper. Cover everything with a veggie broth and bring to a rolling boil.

Once the soup reaches a rolling boil, reduce heat and simmer for about 30 minutes with a lid cracked open until everything is cooked through. Remove from heat and pulse with an immersion blender until creamy. If you cooked part of the veggies separately, stir in those, then taste and adjust seasoning. Serve immediately.

This soup is really filling and reheats great, so it’s an awesome meal prep option for a busy work week.

Znate kako kada kupite cijelu brokulu uvijek bacite u smeće ogromnu stabljiku? Vi ne bacate stabljiku? Onda vam čestitam, jer cijelo vrijeme koristite brokulu na pravilan način! Međutim, sve do nedavno, ja nisam uopće znala da je stabljika brokule jestiva. A stabljika ne samo da je jestiva, već ima još i veću nutritivnu vrijednost od cvjetića brokule. Za ovu juhu iskoristit ćete cijelu brokulu, pa ne samo da ćete imati jako puno juhe, već vam ostati i jako malo otpada od povrća.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 6 izdašnih porcija / 4,54 kn po porciji / 27,21 kn za sve)

2 žlice suncokretovog ulja (0,20 kn)

1 luk (0,75 kn)

3 češnja češnjaka (0,75 kn)

2 glavice brokule (12,00 kn)

6 mrkvi (4,50 kn)

6 srednje velikih krumpira (3,00 kn)

1 žličica soli (0.01 kn)

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

1 žlica koncentrata od rajčice (1,00 kn)

1 žličica dimljene paprike (0,50 kn)

1 žličica češnjaka u prahu (0,50 kn)

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

6 šalica povrtnog temeljca (3,00 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Operite, ogulite i nasjeckajte svo povrće. Ogulite i bacite vanjski sloj sa stablike od brokule, pa nasjeckajte i stabljiku. Ja sam dio povrća u juhi ostavila cijeli, pa sam cvjetiće brokule i dio mrkve skuhala al dente u posebnom loncu u slanoj vodi. Ako želite, i vi napravite tako, ili ako želite pojednostaviti stvari, sve skuhajte u istom loncu i propasirajte cijelu juhu.

Ulje stavite u veliki lonac, pa prodinstajte luk par minuta dok ne postane staklast. Dodajte svježi češnjak, pa promiješajte i kuhajte minutu, samo da zamiriši, prije nego u lonac ubacite stabljike brokule, mrkvu, krumpir, sol, Gochujang, koncentrat rajčice, papriku, češnjak u prahu i papar. Sve zalijte povrtnim temeljcem i pustite da zavrije.

Kada juha zavrije, smanjite vatru i krčkajte sa odškrinutim poklopcem 30-tak minuta, dok povrće ne bude kuhano. Maknite juhu sa vatre i propasirajte štapnim mikserom da bude kremasto. Ako ste dio povrća skuhali posebno, sada to povrće ocijedite i umiješajte u juhu. Kušajte i prilagodite začine, pa odmah poslužite.

Ova je juha jako zasitna i super se podgrijava, tako da je odlična opcija za prirpemiti unaprijed za užurbani radni tjedan.

Hello, friends! We are at the end of 2018 and it’s somewhat hard to believe that a whole year is already over. I hope that 2018 was kind to you, but that 2019 is even better. If you are in a rush to wrap up things before you start with festivities, the recipe below is exactly what you need in order to quickly put some delicious and nutritious food on the table.

2 tbsp sunflower seed oil (0.03 EUR)

2 onions (0.20 EUR)

6 garlic cloves (0.20 EUR)

1 head of broccoli (1.00 EUR)

1 tbsp sweet Hungarian paprika (0.07 EUR)

1 tsp smoked paprika (0.07 EUR)

1 tsp dried coriander (0.07 EUR)

1 tsp garlic powder (0.07 EUR)

1 can diced tomatoes (0.67 EUR)

2 cups dried red lentils (1.33 EUR)

4 cups vegetable broth (0.27 EUR)

Small bunch of fresh parsley (0.27 EUR)

IMGP8025

METHOD:

Wash, peel and chop up all the veggies. Also, don’t throw away your broccoli stems! Those are totally edible and packed with nutrients. Just peel and discard the outer layer of the stem and finely chop up the rest. Rinse lentils in a colander under running water.

Add oil to a big pot on high heat and saute the onions for a few minutes, until slightly translucent. Dump in minced garlic and chopped broccoli stem and cook for about five minutes, to soften a bit. Reserve the broccoli florets for later. Add in Hungarian and smoked paprika, coriander, garlic powder, salt, black pepper and bay leaf. Stir for about a minute, just until the flavors from spices bloom. Now add in Gochujang, tomato puree, diced tomatoes, lentils and veggie broth, give a good stir and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and cook with a lid cracked open for about 30 minutes, while stirring occasionally. After 30 minutes, add in broccoli florets and parsley. Stir and cook for another 5-10 minutes, until the broccoli is cooked to your liking.

Serve warm or save for later, as this dish reheats wonderfully.

Operite, ogulite i fino nasjeckajte svo povrće. Nemojte ni slučajno baciti stabljiku od brokule jer je ne samo jestiva, već i nutritivno jako bogata. Jednostavno ogulite vanjski sloj stabljike i to bacite, a ostatak fino nasjeckajte. Leću isperite u cjediljci pod tekućom vodom.

Ulje stavite u veći lonac na jaku vatru, pa par minuta dinstajte luk dok ne postane staklast. Dodajte češnjak i sjeckanu stabljiku brokule, te kuhajte jedno pet minuta da sve malo omekša. Cvjetiće brokule stavite na stranu za kasnije. Ubacite slatku i dimljenu papriku, korijander, češnjak u prahu, sol, papar i lovorov list. Sve promiješajte i ostavite samo minutu dok začini ne zamiriše. Sada dodajte Gochujang, pasiranu i sjeckanu rajčicu, leću i povrtni temeljac, dobro promiješajte i pustite da zavrije. Smanjite vatru pa uz povremeno miješanje krčkajte sa odškrinutim poklopcem oko 30 minuta. Nakon 30 minuta dodajte cvjetiće brokule i svježi peršin, promiješajte te kuhajte još 5-10 minuta, dok brokula ne bude kuhana po vašem ukusu

Poslužite odmah ili spremite za kasnije, jer se ovo jelo super podgrijava.

Broccoli and Lentil Stew (Vegan) / Varivo od brokule i leće (vegansko)

Broccoli and Peanut Stir-Fry (vegan) / Brokula sa kikirikijem iz woka (veganska)

Honestly, I feel like you could coat a bag of styrofoam in the spicy peanut sauce I’ve combined for this recipe, and it would taste freaking amazing. So even if you are not a great fan of broccoli and vegetables in general, this might be just the right way to make things more palatable. If you already like your greens, just make this dish because it’s sooo good!

METHOD:

Wash, peel and chop up all of the veggies. Place a wok or a deep pan on high heat and allow to thoroughly warm up. Add in the oil and peppers, then cook for a few minutes until softened and slightly charred. Throw in sliced onion, garlic, chili and peanuts and briefly cook those up before adding in broccoli.

While the broccoli is cooking, place all sauce ingredients into a small bowl and whisk to dissolve peanut butter. Once the broccoli is done to your liking (I prefer it a bit on the crispy side), pour the sauce over everything and stir to warm up and coat all of the ingredients. And you are done! Serve immediately over a bed of rice.

Iskreno, mislim da bi se sa ovim pikantnim umakom od kikirikija mogla zaliti i vreća stiropora i sve bi i dalje ispalo prefino. Tako da čak i ako niste neki fan brokule i povrća, ovo je super način da vam stvari budu primamljivije. A ako već volite zelenjavu, jednostavno skuhajte ovo jelo jer je savršeno!

SASTOJCI:

(Za 4 porcije / 5,55 kn po porciji / 22,20 kn za sve)

Za wok:

2 žlice suncokretovog ulja (0,20 kn)

3 crvene paprike (6,00 kn)

1 luk (0,75 kn)

3 češnja češnjaka (0,75 kn)

1 čili papričica (1,50 kn)

½ šalice slanog kikirikija (3,00 kn)

1 glavica brokule (6,00 kn)

Za umak:

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

2 žlice kikiriki maslaca (2,00 kn)

¼ šalice vode (–)

2 žlice soja sosa (1,00 kn)

1 žličica tostiranog sezamovog ulja (0,50 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Operite, ogulite i nasjeckajte svo povrće. Duboku tavu ili wok stavite na jaku vatru i pustite da se dobro ugriju. Dodajte ulje i papriku, pa kuhajte par minuta da paprika omekša i lagano se karamelizira. Ubacite nasjeckani luk, češnjak, čili i kikiriki, te kratko kuhajte prije nego ubacite brokulu.

Dok se brokula kuha, sve sastojke za umak stavite u zdjelicu i miješajte dok se kikiriki maslac skroz ne rastopi. Kada je brokula kuhana po vašem ukusu (ja ju volim da ostane još malo hrskava), sve zalijte umakom i dobro promiješajte da se umak ugrije i obloži sve sastojke. I gotovi ste! Poslužite odmah preko kuhane riže.
