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.

Chicken and Cheese Burger Patties / Burgeri sa piletinom i sirom

The other day while browsing the store I stumbled onto super affordable frozen minced chicken. Instantly, I knew that I was going to make burgers. These came together fairly quickly and turned out super yum. I decided to bake the burgers in the oven instead of pan frying, so they required less oil and fussing.

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields 12 burgers / 0.34 EUR per burger / 4.09 EUR for all)

For the burger mix:

2 cups minced chicken (2.27 EUR)

1 cup breadcrumbs (0.20 EUR)

1 cup shredded cheese (0.67 EUR)

1 egg (0.20 EUR)

1 small onion, finely diced (0.07 EUR)

1 tsp garlic powder (0.07 EUR)

1 tsp sweet Hungarian paprika (0.03 EUR)

1 tsp smoked paprika (0.07 EUR)

1 tsp freshly cracked black pepper (0.07 EUR)

1 and ½ tsp salt (0.01 EUR)

1 tbsp chopped fresh chives (0.13 EUR)

1 tbsp chopped fresh parsley (0.13 EUR)

For baking:

½ cup breadcrumbs (0.10 EUR)

¼ cup sunflower seed oil (0.07 EUR)

IMGP7120

IMGP7127

METHOD:

Make the burger mix by stirring together all of the ingredients until well combined. I find the best way to do this is just to use my hands and that way I can ensure it all mingles well together. Allow the mixture to sit for 30 minutes so the flavors have time to develop.

When ready to bake, preheat the oven to 200°C and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Scoop about a ¼ cup of the mixture and form into a patty. Coat with breadcrumbs and arrange on a prepared baking sheet. Repeat until all of the mixture is used up. When all of the patties are assembled, lightly brush them with oil on both sides. Bake for 35 minutes, until crispy and golden brown. These reheat excellent but are also fantastic cold, straight out of the fridge.

Neki sam dan prilikom pohoda u dućan naletjela na jeftinu smrznutu mljevenu piletinu. Odmah sam znala da ću raditi burgere. Ovo sam jelo za čas zgotovila, a burgeri su ispali mrak. Odlučila sam ih peći u pećnici, a ne na tavi, tako da je za sve trebalo manje ulja i petljanja.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 12 burgera / 2,54 kn po burgeru / 30,52 kn za sve)

Za smjesu:

2 šalice mljevene piletine (17,00 kn)

1 šalica krušnih mrvica (1,50 kn)

1 šalica ribanog sira (5,00 kn)

1 jaje (1,50 kn)

1 mali luk, fino nasjeckan (0,50 kn)

1 žličica češnjaka u prahu (0,50 kn)

1 žličica slatke crvene paprike (0,25 kn)

1 žličica dimljene paprike (0,50 kn)

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

1 i ½ žličica soli (0,02 kn)

1 žlica svježeg nasjeckanog vlasca (1,00 kn)

1 žlica svježeg nasjeckanog peršina (1,00 kn)

Za pečenje:

½ šalice krušnih mrvica (0,75 kn)

¼ šalice suncokretovog ulja (0,50 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Spremite smjesu za burgere tako da sve sastojke dobro izmješate dok se ne sjedine. Meni je najlakše to jednostavno napraviti rukama jer sam tako sigurna da se sve dobro prominglalo. Ostavite smjesu da miruje 30 minuta kako bi se okusi razvili.

Kada ste spremni za pečenje, zagrijte pećnicu na 200°C i protvan obložite papirom za pečenje. Odgrabite oko ¼ šalice smjese i formirajte u burger. Obložite krušnim mrvicama sa svih strana i stavite na pripremljeni protvan. Ponavljajte dok ne potrošite svu smjesu. Kada ste pripremili sve burgere, lagano ih sa obje strane premažite uljem. Pecite oko 35 minuta, dok burgeri ne budu hrskavi i zlatno-smeđi. Oni se super podgrijavaju, ali su jako ukusni i hladni, direktno iz frižidera.

Low on cash, but want to make something filling and delicious? Fear not, these burgers are just the thing.

I came up with this recipe in order to use up all of the bits and bobs I had lying around the house. For different bits and bobs you have on your hand, feel free to subtract or add things. Just remember, you’ll need to add plenty of dry ingredients to the mashed beans and chopped vegetables to hold those burgers together. Here I opted for soy flakes, so I could ditch breadcrumbs or flour and make the burgers even more protein packed.

IMGP4909

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields 8 burger patties / 0.27 EUR per patty / 2.14 EUR for all)

1 ½ cup precooked cannellini beans (0.40 EUR)

1 small onion, finely diced (0.07 EUR)

3 garlic cloves, minced (0.10 EUR)

½ small bell pepper, finely diced (0.13 EUR)

1 cup dried soy flakes (0.53 EUR)

1 large egg (0.20 EUR)

2 tbsp finely grated hard cheese, like Parmigiano Reggiano, Grana Padano, etc. (0.13 EUR)

Bunch of fresh parsley, finely chopped (0.07 EUR)

2 tbsp ground flax seed (0.07 EUR)

2 tbsp olive oil (0.09 EUR)

2 tbsp Thai sweet chili sauce (0.27 EUR)

1 tsp sweet Hungarian paprika (0.03 EUR)

½ tsp smoked paprika (0.03 EUR)

½ tsp salt (0.01 EUR)

½ tsp freshly cracked black pepper (0.01 EUR)

IMGP4911

METHOD:

Strain the beans from any liquid and pat dry with a kitchen towel, then mash them up using a potato masher. Add all of the ingredients to the bean paste and stir really well to combine. Let sit for about half an hour, so all the flavors can mix.

When ready to bake, preheat oven to 200°C. Line baking sheet with parchment paper and using a large spoon (or large ice cream scoop, if you have one), divide the mixture on baking sheet. Gently press the down with your hands and thus form into patties. Bake for 25-30 minutes, until crispy and deep golden-brown.

Niste baš pri novcima, a htjeli biste napraviti nešto zasitno i ukusno? Ne bojte se, ovi burgeri su baš prava stvar.

Ovaj sam recept smislila da potrošim sve ostatke koji su mi se povlačili po kući. Slobodno oduzmite ili dodajte stvari da biste upotrijebili sve ostake hrane koje vi imate doma. Samo imajte na umu da trebate u burgere dodati dovoljno suhih sastojaka u pastu od graha i nasjeckano povrće kako bi se sve držalo na okupu. Ja sam se odlučila za sojine ljuspice da mogu izbaciti krušne mrvice i kako bi burgeri bili još napucaniji sa proteinima.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 8 burgera / 1,99 kn po burgeru / 15,97 kn za sve)

1 ½ šalice već skuhanog bijelog graha (3,00 kn)

1 mali luk, sitno nasjeckan (0,50 kn)

3 češnja češnjaka, sitno nasjeckana (0,75 kn)

½ male paprike babure, sitno nasjeckane (1,00 kn)

1 šalica sojinih ljuspica (4,00 kn)

1 jaje (1,50 kn)

2 žlice fino naribanog tvrdog sira, kao parmezan, Grana Padano i sl. (1,00 kn)

Pregršt svježeg peršina, sitno nasjeckanog (0,50 kn)

2 žlice mljevenih sjemenki lana (0,50 kn)

2 žlice maslinovog ulja (0,66 kn)

2 žlice tajlandskog slatkog chili umaka (2,00 kn)

1 žličica slatke crvene paprike (0,25 kn)

½ žličice dimljene crvene paprike (0,25 kn)

½ žličice soli (0,01 kn)

½ žličice svježe mljevenog crnog papra (0,05 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Ocijedite grah od tekućine i malo ga posušite kuhinjskim ručnikom, pa ga onda izgnječite sa gnječilicom za krumpir. Dodajte sve sastojke u pastu od graha i dobro sve promiješajte. Pustite smjesu da odstoji oko pola sata kako bi se svi okusi proželi.

Kada ste spremni za pečenje, zagrijte pećnicu na 200°C. Obložite protvan za pečenje masnim papirom, pa velikom žlicom (ili velikom žlicom za sladoled, ako ju imate) grabite smjesu na protvan. Rukama nježno pritisnite smjesu da biste formirali burgere. Pecite oko 25-30 minuta, dok burgeri ne budu hrskavi i ne dobiju lijepu zlatno-smeđu boju.
