Oven Baked Spinach Falafel (vegan) / Falafel sa špinatom iz pećnice (veganski)

Dear Friends, first and foremost, I hope that you are all doing well and that you and your families are safe and healthy. ❤ We still need to eat, though, so here is an easy and delicious falafel recipe that you can try out.

IMGP8927

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields about 20 falafel / 0.09 EUR per falafel / 1.79 EUR for all)

Large handful of fresh spinach (0.40 EUR)

2 cups precooked drained chickpeas (0.40 EUR)

1 onion (0.10 EUR)

1 carrot (0.10 EUR)

1 tsp salt (0.01 EUR)

½ tsp freshly ground black pepper (0.03 EUR)

½ tsp dried red pepper flakes (0.03 EUR)

½ tsp garlic powder (0.03 EUR)

½ tsp smoked paprika (0.03 EUR)

2 tbsp dried parsley (0.13 EUR)

3 tbsp olive oil (0.13 EUR)

1 tbsp lemon juice (0.07 EUR)

4 tbsp sesame seeds (0.13 EUR)

½ cup breadcrumbs (0.20 EUR)

IMGP8925

METHOD:

Preheat the oven to 200°C. Line a baking tray with parchment paper and set aside. Wash, peel and roughly chop up the veggies. Add the spinach, chickpeas, chopped onion, carrot, salt, black pepper, red pepper flakes, garlic powder, paprika, parsley, olive oil and lemon juice to a food processor and pulse until mostly uniform. I always like to leave a chunk here and there for more interesting texture. Add in sesame seeds and breadcrumbs, then pulse briefly to combine. If the mixture seems too sticky, add in more breadcrumbs.

Scoop the batter into small balls, lightly flatten and spread onto the prepared baking sheet. I used a small ice cream scoop for this and the size was perfect. Bake for about 30 minutes, until crispy and browned, making sure to flip the falafel over halfway during baking to ensure even crispiness. Serve warm in a pita, with a salad, or as a funky vegan meatball substitute. These also reheat great, but taste good even when they are cold.

Dragi prijatelji, prvenstveno se nadam da ste svi dobro, te da ste vi i vaše obitelji zdravi i sigurni. ❤ Međutim, i dalje moramo jesti, pa vam evo jedan lagan i jako ukusan recept koji možete isprobati.

SASTOJCI:

(Za oko 20 falafela / 0,68 kn po falafelu / 13,50 kn za sve)

Veliki pregršt svježeg špinata (3,00 kn)

2 šalice kuhanog i ocijeđenog slanutka (3,00 kn)

1 luk (0,75 kn)

1 mrkva (0,75 kn)

1 žličica soli (0,01 kn)

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

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

½ žličice češnjaka u prahu (0,25 kn)

½ žličice dimljene paprike (0,25 kn)

2 žlice sušenog peršina (1,00 kn)

3 žlice maslinovog ulja (0,99 kn)

1 žlica limunovog soka (0,50 kn)

4 žlice sezama (1,00 kn)

½ šalice krušnih mrvica (1,50 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Zagrijte pećnicu na 200°C i obložite protvan papirom za pečenje. Operite, ogulite i grubo nasjeckajte svo povrće. Špinat, slanutak, sjeckani luk, mrkvu, sol, papar, čili, češnjak, papriku, peršin, maslinovo ulje i limunov sok dodajte u multipraktik i pulsirajte dok ne dobijete jednoličnu smjesu. Ja volim malo teksture u svemu, pa ostavim da bude i nešto komadića. Dodajte sezam i krušne mrvice, pa pulsirajte da se sve sjedini. Ako vam je smjesa previše ljepljiva, dodajte još krušnih mrvica.

Smjesu grabite u male loptice, lagano ih spljoštite te ih raširite po pripremljenom protvanu. Ja sam koristila malu žlicu za sladoled i to mi je ispala super veličina za loptice. Pecite oko 30 minuta, dok falafeli ne postanu hrskavi i smećkasti. Na pola pečenja preokrenite falafele da se lijepo zapeku sa obje strane. Poslužite ih tople sa pita kruhom, sa nekom salatom ili kao neku funky vegansku zamjenu za mesne okruglice. Falafeli se super podgijavaju, ali su jako ukusni i hladni.

Quick Bean Patties (vegan) / Brzi faširanci od graha (veganski)

We had an easy lunch of mashed potatoes and pureed spinach over the weekend, but had no meat around to make the patties to round the meal up. I kinda have to have spinach and mashed potatoes with patties – it’s just the way the world works, so I quickly whipped up these vegan bean patties. I also apologize upfront for the crappy photos, but lighting in our kitchen is terrible and I was super hungry and couldn’t muster patience for better pictures.

IMG_2378

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields 4 patties / 0.38 EUR per patty / 1.52 EUR for all)

For the batter:

1 tbsp flax meal (0.07 EUR)

2 tbsp water (–)

1 tbsp sunflower seed oil (0.01 EUR)

½ of an onion (0.05 EUR)

1 can of brown beans (0.67 EUR)

½ tsp salt (0.01 EUR)

½ tsp freshly ground black pepper (0.03 EUR)

½ tsp garlic powder (0.03 EUR)

1 tbsp dried parsley (0.07 EUR)

1 tbsp tomato puree (0.13 EUR)

1 tsp soy sauce (0.07 EUR)

1 tsp toasted sesame oil (0.13 EUR)

1 tsp Sriracha (0.03 EUR)

½ cup breadcrumbs (0.10 EUR)

Additional:

¼ cup breadcrumbs for coating (0.05 EUR)

¼ cup of sunflower seed oil for frying (0.07 EUR)

METHOD:

Start off by making a flax egg. Whisk together flax meal with water, then set aside for about 10 minutes. Meanwhile, finely dice the onion and saute it in a tablespoon of oil until slightly caramelized. Rinse and drain the beans, then mash them up into a paste. I also left a few chunks in there, because texture is everything. Add the flax egg, sauted onion, salt, pepper, garlic powder, parsley, tomato puree, soy sauce, sesame oil and Sriracha to mashed beans and stir well. Then gradually add in breadcrumbs so that the finally batter is pliable and not too sticky. Taste and adjust seasoning, then refrigerate for about 30 minutes. I skipped this step because I wanted to eat right away, but refrigerating will help the patties to better retain their shape.

After half an hour remove the batter from fridge and shape into four patties. Coat each patty with breadcrumbs then fry on a well-oiled pan on medium heat for about 5 minutes on each side. Be sure to flip the patties gently, as they are more delicate then classic meat patties. Serve warm.

Za vikend smo radili jednostavan ručak sa pire krumpirom i pireom od špinata, ali nismo imali doma nikakvog mesa za faširance. Za mene to nikako nije moglo proći jer ja jednostavno moram imati faširanac uz špinat, tako da sam na brzinu smutila ove od graha. Također, unaprijed se ispričavam zbog jadnih fotki, ali osvjetljenje nam je koma u kuhinji, a ja sam jednostavno bila previše gladna i prenestrpljiva da se više potrudim. 😀

SASTOJCI:

(Za 4 faširanca / 2,84 kn po faširancu / 11,37 kn za sve)

Za smjesu:

1 žlica mljevenog lana (0,50 kn)

2 žlice vode (–)

1 žlica suncokretovog ulja (0,10 kn)

½ luka (0,38 kn)

1 konzerva smeđeg graha (5,00 kn)

½ žličice soli (0,01 kn)

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

½ žličice češnjaka u prahu (0,25 kn)

1 žlica sušenog peršina (0,50 kn)

1 žlica koncentrata od rajčice (1,00 kn)

1 žličica soja sosa (0,50 kn)

1 žličica tostiranog sezamovog ulja (1,00 kn)

1 žličica Sriracha umaka ili čili umaka (0,25 kn)

½ šalice krušnih mrvica (0,75 kn)

Dodatno:

¼ šalice krušnih mrvica za paniranje (0,38 kn)

¼ šalice ulja za prženje (0,50 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Za početak pripremite lan-jaje (flax egg). Pomiješajte mljeveni lan sa vodom i pustite da odstoji desetak minuta da se zgusne. U međuvremenu sitno nasjeckajte luk pa ga ispržite na žlici ulja da se blago karamelizira. Isperite i dobro ocijedite grah te ga izgnječite u pire. Ja sam također ostavila i nešto komadića jer je tekstura super u svemu. U zgnječeni grah dodajte lan-jaje, karamelizirani luk, sol, papar, češnjak, peršin, koncentrat rajčice, soja sos, sezamovo ulje i Srirachu, te sve dobro promiješajte da se sjedini. Postepeno dodajte krušne mrvice, sve dok se smjesa ne zgusne i prestane biti jako ljepljiva. Kušajte i prilagodite začine, pa smjesu stavite u hladnjak na pola sata. Ja sam ovaj korak preskočila jer sam bila nestrpljiva i gladna, ali ako ohladite smjesu faširanci će se bolje držati skupa.

Nakon pola sata smjesu izvadite iz hladnjaka te oblikujte u četiri faširanca. Uvaljajte faširance u krušne mrvice, pa ih ispržite u dobro nauljenoj tavi, po oko pet minuta sa svake strane. Samo pazite kada faširance okrećete da budete nježni, jer su puno delikatniji od klasičnih mesnih faširanaca. Poslužite toplo.

Spinach Smoothie (vegan) / Smoothie od špinata (veganski)

The whole Coronavirus hype didn’t throw us into a manic frenzy which half of the world seems to be going through, but I’ve decided that some extra greens couldn’t hurt. I’m already gobbling down salads and other forms of greenery, so a smoothie now and then seemed like a great option for an extra boost to my immune system. This one packs a ton of spinach, but doesn’t taste like a giant bowl of grass and is actually super delicious, so go ahead and try it out if you’re looking for some new smoothie recipes.

Fama sa Coronavirusom nije nas bacila u histeriju koju, čini se, proživljava pola zemaljske kugle, ali sam odlučila da malo ekstra voća i povrća ipak ne može škoditi. Već se ionako šopam sa svakojakim salatama i drugim oblicima zelenjave, pa mi se povremeni smoothie učinio kao super opcija da malo dodatno nabufam imunitet. U ovom ovdje ima tona špinata, ali nema okus kao velika zdjela trave te je zapravo baš i ukusan, pa ga svakako probajte ako ste raspoloženi za neki novi smoothie recept.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 2 porcije / 5,51 kn po porciji / 11,01 kn za sve)

Veliki pregršt svježeg špinata (3,00 kn)

½ žličice đumbira u prahu (0,25 kn)

½ žličice cimeta u prahu (0,25 kn)

Prstohvat soli (0,01 kn)

Sok od 1 limuna (1,50 kn)

1 mala banana (1,50 kn)

1 i ½ šalica soka od naranče (4,50 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Dobro operite špinat pod tekućom vodom, pa sve sastojke ubacite u blender i blendajte na velikoj brzini 2-3 minute, da bude skroz glatko. Poslužite odmah.

Spinach Smoothie (vegan) / Smoothie od špinata (veganski)

Mushroom and Barley Soup (vegan) / Juha od gljiva i ječma (veganska)

The cool winter weather makes me crave nothing more than soups. I could eat all the soups ever. Spicy, mild, creamy or clear, just bring those soups on and I’ll love them all the same. This soup is super easy to make and quite hearty thanks to the barley and potatoes, so it basically makes a full lunch. There’s nothing more comforting than getting cozy under a blanket with a nice bowl of this deliciousness.

IMGP8781

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields 6 servings / 0.88 EUR per serving / 5.29 EUR for all)

2 tbsp sunflower seed oil (0.03 EUR)

1 large onion (0.10 EUR)

500 grams white mushrooms (2.00 EUR)

100 grams of shiitake mushrooms (1.00 EUR)

3 tbsp vegan butter (0.40 EUR)

3 carrots (0.30 EUR)

3 potatoes (0.30 EUR)

4 garlic cloves (0.13 EUR)

1 cup of barley (0.13 EUR)

2 tbsp tomato paste (0.27 EUR)

1 tsp salt (0.01 EUR)

1 tsp freshly ground black pepper (0.07 EUR)

Good pinch of dried red pepper flakes (0.02 EUR)

2 tbsp soy sauce (0.13 EUR)

6 cups of veggie broth (0.40 EUR)

IMGP8785

METHOD:

Peel, wash and chop up all the veggies and mushrooms. Add oil, onion, white mushrooms, shiitake mushrooms and butter to a large pot on high heat then saute for about ten minutes to slightly caramelize. Now add in carrots, potatoes and minced garlic, stir and cook for additional five minutes to get things lightly browned. Finally, add in barley, tomato paste, salt, black pepper, red pepper flakes, soy sauce and veggie broth. Bring to a rolling boil, reduce heat and simmer with a lid cracked open for 45 minutes, until the barley is thoroughly cooked through. Serve warm with a slice of some nice bread, or portion out to have for later, as this soup reheats great.

U hladnim zimskim danima (iako, nije baš i da je ove godine neka zima) jedu mi se samo juhe i juhe. Ljute, blage, kremaste ili bistre, samo mi dajte juhice i meni budu sve bile super. Ovaj recept u nastavku je totalno jednostavan za napraviti, a dobiti ćete zasitno jelo zahvaljujući ječmu i krumpirima, pa zapravo može proći i kao kompletan ručak. A meni nema ništa draže nego se fino umotati doma u dekicu sa zdjelicom ove fine juhice.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 6 porcija / 6,60 kn po porciji / 39,61 kn za sve)

2 žlice suncokretovog ulja (0,20 kn)

1 veliki luk (0,75 kn)

500 g šampinjona (15,00 kn)

100 g shiitaka (7,50 kn)

Dobar prstohvat sušenog čilija u pahuljicama (0,15 kn)

2 žlice soja sosa (1,00 kn)

6 šalica povrtnog temeljca (3,00 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Operite, ogulite i nasjeckajte svo povrće i gljive. Ulje, luk, šampinjone, shiitake i maslac dodajte u veliki lonac na jakoj vatri, pa dinstajte desetak minuta da se gljive blago karameliziraju. Sada ubacite mrkve, krumpire i češnjak, dobro promiješajte te kuhajte jedno pet minuta da sve dobije boju. Na kraju dodajte i ječam, koncentrat rajčice, sol, papar, čili, soja sos i temeljac. Pustite da zavrije, smanjite vatru te krčkajte sa odškrinutim poklopcem jedno 45 minuta, dok se ječam ne skuha do kraja. Poslužite odmah sa kriškom nekog finog kruha ili pak rasporedite u porcije za kasnije, pošto se ova juhica super podgrijava.

Butternut Squash, Lentil and Bean Soup (vegan) / Juha od buternut tikve, leće i graha (vegansko)

I’ve had this huge butternut squash lying around for a while, so I finally decided to make a soup out of it. To make the squash puree, I just halved it, scooped out the seeds and baked it for an hour at 200°C. Then I just scooped the flesh out and pureed it. I definitely prefer this method over cooking the squash, as I then don’t have to peel it while it’s fresh (which is a big pain in the butt).

IMGP8888

IMGP8876

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields 6 servings / 0.69 EUR per serving / 4.01 EUR for all)

2 tbsp sunflower seed oil (0.03 EUR)

1 onion (0.10 EUR)

4 garlic cloves (0.13 EUR)

1 cup red lentils (0.67 EUR)

1 can of white cannellini beans (0.67 EUR)

2 cups tomato sauce (0.53 EUR)

2 cups butternut squash puree (0.80 EUR)

2 tbsp tomato paste (0.27 EUR)

1 tsp smoked paprika (0.07 EUR)

½ tsp garlic powder (0.03 EUR)

½ tsp dried red pepper flakes (0.03 EUR)

1 tsp salt (0.01 EUR)

½ tsp freshly ground black pepper (0.03 EUR)

1 tsp dried oregano (0.07 EUR)

1 tsp dried thyme (0.07 EUR)

1 bay leaf (0.03 EUR)

1 tbsp dried parsley (0.07 EUR)

6 cups veggie broth (0.40 EUR)

IMGP8885

METHOD:

Peel, wash and chop up onion and garlic. Rinse the lentils and beans in a colander under running water. Add oil, onion and garlic to a pot on high heat and saute for a few minutes until slightly translucent. Throw in all remaining ingredients and bring to a rolling boil. Once the soup is boiling, reduce heat and simmer with a lid cracked open for about 20 minutes, until the lentils are thoroughly cooked. Serve warm. This soup reheats and freezes great, so it’s also an awesome meal prep option.

Već mi je neko vrijeme doma stajala ogromna butternut tikva, pa sam se napokon na kraju odlučila od nje napraviti juhu. Pire od tikve sam pripremila jako jednostavno, i to tako da sam tikvu raspolovila, odstranila joj sjemenke i onda ju pekla sat vremena na 200°C. Onda sam samo postrugala meso tikve i ispasirala ju u blenderu. Ova metoda mi je puno draža od kuhanja tikve u vodi, jer ju onda uopće ne moram guliti dok je svježa (a što mi je poprilična gnjavaža).

SASTOJCI:

(Za 6 porcija / 4,98 kn po porciji / 29,91 kn za sve)

2 žlice suncokretovog ulja (0,20 kn)

1 luk (0,75 kn)

4 češnja češnjaka (1,00 kn)

1 šalica crvene leće (5,00 kn)

1 konzerva bijelog graha (5,00 kn)

2 šalice pasirane rajčice (4,00 kn)

2 šalice pirea od tikve (6,00 kn)

2 žlice koncentrata od rajčice (2,00 kn)

1 žličica dimljene paprike (0,50 kn)

½ žličice češnjaka u prahu (0,25 kn)

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

1 žličica soli (0,01 kn)

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

1 žličica sušenog origana (0,50 kn)

1 žličica sušenog timijana (0,50 kn)

1 lovorov list (0,20 kn)

1 žlica sušenog peršina (0,50 kn)

6 šalica povrtnog temeljca (3,00 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Ogulite, operite i nasjeckajte luk i češnjak. Leću i grah isperite u cjediljci pod tekućom vodom. Ulje, luk i češnjak stavite u lonac na jakoj vatri i dinstajte par minuta dok ne postanu staklasti. Dodajte sve ostale sastojke i pustite da zavrije. Jednom kada juha zakipi, smanjite vatru i krčkajte sa odškrinutim poklopcem 20-tak minuta, dok leća ne bude skroz kuhana. Poslužite toplo. Ova juha se super podgrijava i smrzava, tako da je odlična opcija za pripremiti unaprijed.

Persimmon and Oat Breakfast Cups (vegan) / Doručak-košarice sa japanskom jabukom (kaki) i zobenim pahuljicama (veganske)

I’ve bought a couple of persimmons a while back and was waiting for them to ripen for weeks. Now when they were finally ripe, I honestly had no idea what to do with them. However, mixing fruits and oats is always a great idea in my book, so in the end I opted for these breakfast cups.

I used small silicone muffin molds to hold everything together, but you can use regular muffin molds as well. Just be sure to line them with paper liners and only add small scoops of batter to each cup, since these end up quite brittle in the end and you ideally want to end up with bite-sized cups.

IMGP8850

IMGP8846

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields 15-20 cups / 1.36 EUR)

1 ripe persimmon (0.40 EUR)

2 tbsp coconut oil, melted (0.27 EUR)

3 tbsp date syrup (0.10 EUR)

3 tbsp vegan milk (0.04 EUR)

½ tsp ground cinnamon (0.03 EUR)

¼ tsp ground nutmeg (0.02 EUR)

¼ tsp ground cloves (0.02 EUR)

1 tsp pure vanilla extract (0.03 EUR)

Pinch of salt (0.01 EUR)

1 and ½ cups mixed rolled and instant oats (0.20 EUR)

1 tbsp ground flax seeds (0.03 EUR)

¼ tsp baking powder (0.01 EUR)

½ cup raisins (0.20 EUR)

IMGP8847

IMGP8848

METHOD:

Preheat the oven to 175°C. Peel and finely dice the persimmon. In a bowl, whisk together coconut oil, date syrup, milk, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, vanilla and salt. Add in the oats, flax seeds, baking powder, diced persimmon and raisins. Stir until everything is well combined, then scoop the mixture into prepared muffin tin. I used a small ice-cream scoop for easier handling. Use you scoop or a spoon to press the batter into the muffin molds. Bake for 20 minutes, until fragrant and slightly crispy. Allow the oat cups to cool completely in their molds before attempting to remove them. Enjoy as an easy portable breakfast or as a healthy snack.

Ima već dosta vremena od kada sam kupila dvije japanske jabuke kaki te sam tjednima čekala da dozriju. Sada kada su napokon zrele, nisam imala baš nikakve ideje što bih s njima mogla napraviti. Međutim, miks voća i zobenih pahuljica uvijek mi se čini kao okej plan i tako sam nekako došla do ovih slasnih košarica.

Ja sam svoje napravila u silikonskom kalupu za mini mafine, ali možete slobodno upotrijebiti i običan kalup. Samo ga obavezno obložite papirnatim košaricama, a u svaku posudicu za mafin dodajte malu količinu smjese, pošto su ovi zalogaji u konačnici dosta krhki, pa je idealno da sve možete utrpati u usta u jednom grizu.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 15-20 košarica / 10,05 kn)

1 zrela japanska jabuka – kaki (3,00 kn)

2 žlice rastopljenog kokosovog ulja (2,00 kn)

3 žlice sirupa od datulja (0,75 kn)

3 žlice veganskog mlijeka (0,30 kn)

½ žličice cimeta (0,25 kn)

¼ žličice muškatnog oraščića (0,13 kn)

¼ žličice mljevenih klinčića (0,13 kn)

1 žličica ekstrakta od vanilije (0,20 kn)

Prstohvat soli (0,01 kn)

1 i ½ šalica mješavine sitnih i krupnih zobenih pahuljica (1,50 kn)

1 žlica mljevenih sjemenki lana (0,25 kn)

¼ žličice praška za pecivo (0,03 kn)

½ šalice grožđica (1,50 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Zagrijte pećnicu na 175°C. Ogulite i nasjeckajte kaki. U zdjelici pomiješajte kokosovo ulje, sirup od datulja, mlijeko, cimet, muškatni oraščić, klinčiće, vaniliju i sol. Dodajte zobene, lan, prašak za pecivo, sjeckani kaki i grožđice. Miješajte dok se sve ne sjedini, pa smjesu raspodijelite po pripremljenim kalupima za mafine. Ja sam za lakše grabljenje koristila malu žlicu za sladoled. Žlicom još malo utisnite smjesu u kalup za mafine. Pecite 20-tak minuta, dok košarice ne zamiriše i ne zahrskaju se. Pustite da se sve dobro ohladi u kalupima prije nego što krenete vaditi van. Papajte kao lagani prijenosni doručak ili mali zdravi snack.

Barley and Apple Breakfast Porridge (vegan) / Jutarnja ječmena kaša s jabukama (veganska)

We’re kinda low on oats at home at the moment and I am trying to improvise with ingredients we already have on hand, since things so easily accumulate in our fridge and pantry over time. As I mostly eat oatmeal for breakfast, I needed to come up with an alternative and hence made up this barley porridge combo. We also had some sad apples sitting around and they were a welcome and delicious addition to the whole situation.

IMGP8823

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields 4 servings / 0.74 EUR per serving / 2.94 EUR for all)

2 apples (0.40 EUR)

1 tbsp lemon juice (0.07 EUR)

2 tsp ground cinnamon (0.13 EUR)

1 tbsp coconut oil (0.07 EUR)

4 cups cooked barley (0.13 EUR)

2 cups plant based milk (0.80 EUR)

4 tbsp ground flax seeds (0.27 EUR)

4 tbsp sunflower seeds (0.53 EUR)

4 tbsp raisins (0.27 EUR)

4 tbsp date syrup (0.27 EUR)

IMGP8824

METHOD:

Peel, core and dice the apples. Toss with lemon juice and cinnamon then add to a saucepan with coconut oil on medium heat. Cook for about 5-10 minutes, until apples are slightly caramelized and softened. While the apples are cooking assemble the bowls. Divide the ingredients between four bowls, top with cooked apples and finally drizzle everything with date syrup. This also works really well for meal prep, so just reheat it when you plan on eating.

Trenutno doma loše stojimo sa zobenim pahuljicama, pa pokušavam improvizirati sa sastojcima koji su mi pri ruci, pošto se hrana tijekom vremena lako nakupi u frižideru i špajzi. Kako uglavnom za doručak jedem zobenu kašu, trebala mi je neka alternativa pa sam tako i došla do ove kombinacije sa zobenom kašom. Osim toga, imali smo i neke tužne jabučice koje su na kraju ispale odličan dodatak u cijeloj ovoj priči.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 4 porcije / 5,50 kn po porciji / 22,00 kn za sve)

2 jabuke (3,00 kn)

1 žlica limunovog soka (0,50 kn)

2 žličice cimeta (1,00 kn)

1 žlica kokosovog ulja (0,50 kn)

4 šalice kuhanog ječma (1,00 kn)

2 šalice veganskog mlijeka (6,00 kn)

4 žlice mljevenih sjemenki lana (2,00 kn)

4 žlice suncokretovih sjemenki (4,00 kn)

4 žlice grožđica (2,00 kn)

4 žlice sirupa od datulja (2,00 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Ogulite jabuke, očistite ih od koštica i narežite na kockice. Pomiješajte sa sokom od limuna, pa ubacite u lončić sa kokosovim uljem na srednje jakoj vatri. Kuhajte 5-10 minuta dok jabuke ne omekšaju i blago se ne karameliziraju. Dok se jabuke kuhaju, složite zdjelice. Raspodijelite sve sastojke između četiri zdjelice, dodajte kuhane jabuke i za kraj sve pokapajte sirupom od datulja. Ovo je super jelo i za prirediti unaprijed i ponijeti na posao, pa samo sve skupa ugrijte prije nego što navalite.
