Mushroom and Turkey Burgers / Burgeri od puretine i gljiva

These burgers are one of those things where you throw everything together in a food processor, which is basically one of my favorite type of recipes. If there is any way that I can reduce the amount of actual work I need to do myself in the kitchen, I’m all for it. I’m quite certain that laziness is in equal part a mother of invention, as is a necessity.

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields 10 burgers / 0.45 EUR per burger / 4.55 EUR for all)

7-8 big Portobello mushrooms (1.33 EUR)

1 small onion (0.07 EUR)

2 garlic cloves (0.07 EUR)

Handful of fresh parsley (0.13 EUR)

2 cups ground turkey (2.67 EUR)

1 tsp pork lard (0.01 EUR)

2 tbsp ketchup (0.07 EUR)

1 tsp smoked paprika (0.07 EUR)

½ tsp garlic powder (0.03 EUR)

1 tsp salt (0.01 EUR)

1 tsp freshly ground black pepper (0.07 EUR)

Good pinch red pepper flakes (0.02 EUR)

IMGP7404

IMGP7407

METHOD:

Wash and pat dry the mushrooms and peel the onion and garlic. Roughly chop everything up, then throw in a food processor to grind down a bit, together with fresh parsley. Don’t pulse for too long, because you’ll end up with a mush, which is not what we’re going for. Add in all of the remaining ingredients and pulse briefly again, just to combine. Refrigerate for 30 minutes so the mixture is easier to handle.

Using your hands divide and shape the mixture into patties, then spread them out onto parchment lined baking sheet. At this point you can either freeze the patties for later use, pan fry them, or roast them in the oven at 200°C for 25-30 minutes. Just keep in mind that due to the water content in the mushrooms, these will shrink more than regular burgers, but are still very juicy and delicious.

There is a patty under all that stuff, I promise. 😀

Ovi burgeri su jedan od onih divnih recepata u kojem možete sve sastojke ubaciti u multipraktik i pustiti njega da za vas odradi sav posao. Što je za mene idealno. Ako ikako postoji način da si smanjim količinu posla u kuhinji, ja sam apsolutno za. Sasvim sam sigurna kako je ljudska lijenost, u jednakoj mjeri kao i nužda, zaslužna za sve velike izume.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 10 burgera / 3,39 kn po burgeru / 33,96 kn za sve)

7-8 velikih šampinjona (10,00 kn)

1 mali luk (0,50 kn)

2 češnja češnjaka (0,50 kn)

Pregršt svježeg peršina (1,00 kn)

2 šalice mljevene puretine (20,00 kn)

1 žličica svinjske masti (0,05 kn)

2 žlice kečapa (0,50 kn)

1 žličica dimljene paprike (0,50 kn)

½ žličice češnjaka u prahu (0,25 kn)

1 žličica soli (0,01 kn)

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

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

PRIPREMA:

Operite i kuhinjskim ručnikom posušite gljive te ogulite luk i češnjak. Grubo sve to nasjeckajte skupa sa peršinom i ubacite u multipraktik, pa pulsirajte da se sve usitni. Nemojte predugo pulsirati jer ćete dobiti gnjecavu kašu, a to nije ono što tu želimo. Dodajte sve preostale sastojke u multipraktik i još malo kratko propulsirajte samo da se svi sastojci sjedine. Smjesu stavite u hladnjak na 30-tak minuta kako bi se malo stisnula pa da vam s njom bude lakše rukovati.

Rukama smjesu raspodijelite i oblikujte u pljeskavice, pa njih raširite po protvanu koji ste obložili papirom za pečenje. Sada možete burgere smrznuti za kasniju upotrebu, ispržiti ih u tavi ili ih 25-30 minuta peći u pećnici zagrijanoj na 200°C. Samo imajte na umu to da će se burgeri dosta stisnuti radi veće količine vode u gljivama, ali će ispasti jako sočni i ukusni.

METHOD:

Wash, peel and thinly slice all the veggies and mushrooms. Whisk the eggs in a small bowl and set aside. Place a deep pan or a wok on high heat and allow to thoroughly warm up. Add two tablespoon of sunflower seed oil and the onion to the wok and saute for a few minutes, until slightly translucent. Gradually add in carrots, peppers and mushrooms, leaving a few minutes in between each veggie. Before adding in the eggs, throw in garlic, ginger, red pepper flakes, black pepper, sugar and salt. Give everything a good stir and cook for a minute so the spices warm up and get fragrant.

Push everything to one side of your pan and add the remaining sunflower seed oil to the empty bottom. Turn the whisked eggs over on oil and cook for a minute or two, while gently folding them over with a spatula. Once the eggs are cooked through, give a good stir and add in the rice, tomato sauce and sesame oil. Stir-fry for a few more minutes, until the rice slightly crisps up. Serve immediately.

Ovom blogu definitivno ne manjka brzih i lakih recepata za wok, gdje skupa smutite hrpu ostataka i nadate se najboljem. Srećom, te stvari uvijek nekako ispadnu dobro pa se i ja na kraju sama sebi čudim kako je zapravo malo potrebno za pripremiti ukusan obrok.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 4 porcije / 4,97 kn po porciji / 19,86 kn za sve)

3 žlice suncokretovog ulja, podijeljene (0,30 kn)

Operite, ogulite i tanko narežite svo povrće i gljive. U maloj zdjelici razmutite jaja i maknite ih na stranu. Duboku tavu ili wok stavite na jaku vatru i pustite da se dobro ugriju. Sada u vrući  wok dodajte dvije žlice suncokretovog ulja i luk, pa dinstajte koju minutu dok ne postane staklast. Postepeno dodajte mrkvu, paprike i šampinjone, s time uvijek sve pustite minutu-dvije prije nego ubacite novo povrće. Prije nego što ćete dodati jaja, ubacite češnjak, đumbir, čili, papar, šećer i sol. Sve dobro promiješajte i kuhajte samo minutu, da se začini ugriju i zamiriše.

Sve sastojke pogurajte na jednu stranu woka, pa onda na prazno dno ulijete preostalu žlicu ulja i na ulje iskrenite razmućena jaja. Nježno jaja minutu-dvije preklapajte špatulom dok se do kraja ne skuhaju. Kada su jaja gotova, sve dobro promiješajte pa dodajte u sve rižu, umak od rajčice, soja sos i sezamovo ulje. Kuhajte uz povremeno miješanje još par minuta, dok se riža blago ne zahrska. Poslužite odmah.

Vegan Hot and Sour Soup / Veganska kiselo ljuta juha

This soup is my absolute favorite and I order it every time when we are having some Chinese takeout. Of course, it’s always better to rely on yourself and prepare your food on your own. I’ve already posted a non-vegan version of this recipe a while back, but I wanted to try out a vegan variation as well. Let me tell you, this turned out delicious and came together super fast.

IMGP7266

IMGP7268

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields 6 servings / 1.12 EUR per serving / 6.74 EUR for all)

1 tsp toasted sesame oil (0.13 EUR)

IMGP7265

IMGP7270

METHOD:

Wash, peel and finely dice all the vegetables. Wipe the mushrooms with a damp kitchen towel and cut into thin strips. Add the oil to a large pot on high heat and sauté onion until slightly translucent. Throw in oyster mushrooms and shiitake and cook for a few minutes before adding in carrots and tofu. Allow the carrots to soften a bit before you add in garlic, ginger powder, red pepper flakes, salt and brown sugar. Give a good stir and allow the spices to become fragrant, then dump in frozen peas, beans, chopped parsley, soy sauce, ketchup and veggie broth.

Bring everything to a rolling boil, reduce heat to medium-low and allow it all to simmer for about 10 minutes, until the peas are cooked through. Dissolve corn starch in ½ cup of warm water and then slowly pour it into the soup, while stirring constantly. Allow the soup to cook for another minute or two until it thickens a bit. Remove the soup from heat, stir in apple cider vinegar and sesame oil, taste and adjust seasoning. Serve hot.

This soup also reheats great and will keep refrigerated for a couple of days.

Ovu juhu jednostavno obožavam i obavezno ju naručim svaki puta kada uzmemo neku dostavu iz kineskog restorana. Naravno, uvijek mi je draže pouzdati se u samu sebe i sama si skuhati ono što jedem. Već sam ranije na blogu objavila ne-vegansku verziju ove juhe, ali sam također željela isprobati i vegansku varijantu. I odma da vam kažem, ovo jelo ne samo da je isplao izvrsno, već je i jako brzo bilo gotovo.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 6 porcija / 8,41 kn po porciji / 50,46 kn za sve)

3 žlice suncokretovog ulja (0,30 kn)

2 velika luk (1,50 kn)

250 g bukovača (7,50 kn)

100 g shiitaka (12,00 kn)

3 velike mrkve (2,25 kn)

1 kocka dimljenog tofua (7,50 kn)

3 češnja češnjaka (0,75 kn)

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

1 žličica sušenog čilija u pahuljicama (0,50 kn)

¼ žličice soli (0,01 kn)

1 žlica smeđeg šećera (0,25 kn)

2 šalice smrznutog graška (4,00 kn)

1 konzerva bijelog graha (5,00 kn)

Pregršt svježeg peršina (1,00 kn)

2 žlice soja sosa (2,00 kn)

2 žlice kečapa (0,50 kn)

6 šalica povrtnog temeljca (3,00 kn)

2 žlice kukuruznog škroba (0,60 kn)

½ šalice tople vode (–)

3 žlice jabučnog octa (0,30 kn)

1 žličica tostiranog sezamovog ulja (1,00 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Operite, ogulite i fino nasjeckajte svo povrće. Gljive obrišite vlažnim papirnatim ručnikom i narežite na tanke trakice. Ulje stavite u veliki lonac na jakoj vatri, pa prodinstajte luk dok ne bude staklast. Ubacite bukovače i shiitake, te par minuta kuhajte, a onda dodajte mrkvu i tofu. Pustite da mrkve malo omekšaju prije nego ćete ubaciti češnjak, đumbir, čili, sol i šećer. Dobro promiješajte i pustite da začini zamiriše, te tada dodajte i smrznuti grašak, grah, sjeckani peršin, soja sos, kečap i povrtni temeljac.

Pričekajte da sve zavrije prije nego vatru smanjite na srednje-nisku. Ostavite da se sve krčka desetak minuta, dok grašak ne bude do kraja kuhan. Kukuruzni škrob rastopite u pola šalice tople vode te ga polako ulijevajte u juhu, uz neprestano miješanje. Pustite da se juha kuha još minutu-dvije dok se malo ne zgusne. Maknite juhu s vatre i umiješajte ocat i sezamovo ulje. Kušajte i prilagodite začine, te poslužite vruće.

Ova juha se također i dobro podgrijava, a u hladnjaku će držati nekoliko dana.

Vegan Hot and Sour Soup / Veganska kiselo ljuta juha

Vegan Bolognese Sauce (soy free) / Veganski bolonjez (bez soje)

As previously announced in this post where I lamented on beauties and thrills of vegan minced ‘’meat’’, here comes a recipe for vegan Bolognese sauce. Even if you don’t have the ‘’meat’’ already prepared, all of this will come together fairly quickly and produce an amazing meal. This dish also works wonderful as meal prep, so go ahead and make a bunch in advance.

IMGP7421

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields 4 servings / 0.76 EUR per serving / 3.05 EUR for all)

For the sauce:

2 tbsp olive oil (0.09 EUR)

1 onion (0.10 UR)

2 garlic cloves (0.07 EUR)

2 tsp dried oregano (0.13 EUR)

½ tsp red pepper flakes (0.03 EUR)

2 cups of vegan minced ‘’meat’’ (1.32 EUR)

1 can diced tomatoes (0.53 EUR)

2 tbsp fresh chopped parsley (0.13 EUR)

Good pinch of salt (0.01 EUR)

Good pinch of freshly ground black pepper (0.02 EUR)

For the pasta:

Water (–)

1 tsp salt (0.01 EUR)

1 tbsp sunflower seed oil (0.01 EUR)

500 grams dried pasta (0.67 EUR)

IMGP7422

METHOD:

Finely dice the onion and mince garlic. Place a deep skillet on high heat and sauté onion on olive oil for a few minutes, until slightly translucent. Add in minced garlic, oregano and red pepper flakes, then stir for a minute until spices become fragrant. Throw in vegan minced ‘’meat’’ and break it down into smaller chunks with a spatula. Cook for about 10 minutes, until slightly crisped up. Add in tomatoes, parsley, salt and pepper. Give everything a good stir, reduce heat and simmer for another 10 minutes so the flavors combine and the sauce thickens.

Meanwhile, bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add in salt, oil and pasta, then cook it to al dente according to the package instructions. Drain the pasta and transfer to a skillet with sauce to finish off cooking for the last two minutes. If needed, add a splash of pasta water to the sauce to thin it out. Serve immediately, or portion out for future lunches.

Kao što sam već najavila u ovom postu gdje lamentiram o krasotama veganskog mljevenog ”mesa”, evo vam recept za veganski bolonjez umak. Čak i ako već nemate spremno mljeveno ”meso”, sve ćete ovo moći spremiti vrlo brzo, a rezultat će biti fantastičan objed. Ovo je jelo također super i za prirediti unaprjed pa ponijeti na posao, stoga si slobodno skuhajte malo više.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 4 porcije / 5,80 kn po porciji / 23,21 kn za sve)

Za umak:

2 žlice maslinovog ulja (0,66 kn)

1 luk (0,75 kn)

2 češnja češnjaka (0,50 kn)

2 žličice sušenog origana (1,00 kn)

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

2 šalice veganskog mljevenog ”mesa” (9,78 kn)

1 konzerva sjeckanih pelata (4,00 kn)

2 žlice svježeg sjeckanog peršina (1,00 kn)

Dobar prstohvat soli (0,01 kn)

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

Za tjesteninu:

Voda (–)

1 žličica soli (0,01 kn)

1 žlica suncokretovog ulja (0,10 kn)

500 g sušene tjestenine (5,00 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Sitno nasjeckajte luk i češnjak. Duboku tavu stavite na jaku vatru, pa na maslinovom ulju dinstajte luk oko pet minuta, dok ne postane staklast. Dodajte sjeckani češnjak, origano i čili, promiješajte te kuhajte minutu da začini zamiriše. Bacite na to vegansko mljeveno ”meso” te ga usitnite špatulom u manje komadiće. Kuhajte desetak minuta da se blago zahrska. Dodajte pelate, peršin, sol i papar. Sve dobro promiješajte, smanjite vatru i krčkajte desetak minuta da se okusi prominglaju i umak zgusne.

U međuvremenu stavite veliki lonac vode da zavrije. Dodajte sol, ulje i tjesteninu, koju skuhajte al dente prema uputama na pakiranju. Ocijedite tjesteninu i ubacite ju u tavu sa umakom da se zadnje dvije minute skuha do kraja. Prema potrebi umak razrijedite sa malo vode u kojoj se kuhala tjestenina. Poslužite odmah ili si rasporedite u porcije za kasnije obroke.

Vegan Bolognese Sauce (soy free) / Veganski bolonjez (bez soje)

Vegan Minced ‘’Meat’’ (soy free, gluten free, paleo) / Vegansko mljeveno ”meso” (bez soje, bez glutena, paleo)

This vegan minced ‘’meat’’ concoction is my new favorite thing! It’s super easy to make, really inexpensive and very versatile. You can do a whole ton of things with it, like regular burgers, Bolognese sauce and even Sloppy Joe burgers, so expect to see these recipes soon. I bet it would also be a great base for vegan lasagna or moussaka and am eager to give those a try as well.

IMGP7393

IMGP7394

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields 4 cups / 0.66 EUR per cup / 2.63 EUR for all)

7-8 big Portobello mushrooms (1.33 EUR)

3 carrots (0.30 EUR)

1 small onion (0.07 EUR)

2 garlic cloves (0.07 EUR)

Large handful of fresh parsley (0.27 EUR)

2 tbsp olive oil (0.09 EUR)

2 tbsp ketchup (0.07 EUR)

1 tsp smoked paprika (0.07 EUR)

½ tsp garlic powder (0.03 EUR)

½ tsp salt (0.01 EUR)

½ tsp freshly ground black pepper (0.03 EUR)

Good pinch red pepper flakes (0.02 EUR)

1 cup ground flax seed (0.27 EUR)

IMGP7399

IMGP7405

METHOD:

Wash, peel and roughly chop all the veggies and mushrooms. Throw all of the ingredients except for flax seeds into a food processor and pulse until still a bit chunky, but well combined. Finally stir in ground flax seeds by hand. If things appear a bit too mushy, feel free to add more flax seeds, as this is a very flexible recipe.

You can store the raw mixture in the fridge for up to two days. I wouldn’t push it past that, as the mushrooms could get funky.

To make regular old burgers, shape the mixture into the patties. I suggest freezing them for half an hour before you go and pan fry them, as they will hold shape better. Alternatively, you can also bake them in an oven on a sheet pan for about 30 minutes at 200°C, but they will probably be quite soft in the end due to all the water in the mushrooms, so handle them very gently. Nevertheless, they are gonna be delicious.

Ovaj pripravak za vegansko mljeveno ”meso” mi je nova najdraža stvar! Jako je jednostavan za pripremiti, jeftin i prilagodljiv. Osim toga, s time kasnije možete izvesti hrpu zanimljivih stvari, kao napraviti klasične burgere, bolonjez umak, pa i Sloppy Joe burgere, a recepti za to slijede ubrzo. Također, kladim se da bi ovo bila super baza i za veganske lazanje ili musaku, a nadam se da ću ubrzo imati vremena i sve to isprobati.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 4 šalice / 4,89 kn po šalici / 19,57 kn za sve)

7-8 velikih šampinjona (10,00 kn)

3 mrkve (2,25 kn)

1 mali luk (0,50 kn)

2 češnja češnjaka (0,50 kn)

Veliki pregršt svježeg peršina (2,00 kn)

2 žlice maslinovog ulja (0,66 kn)

2 žlice kečapa (0,50 kn)

1 žličica dimljene crvene paprike (0,50 kn)

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

½ žličice soli (0,01 kn)

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

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

1 šalica mljevenih sjemenki lana (2,00 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Operite, ogulite i grubo nasjeckajte svo povrće i gljive. Sve sastojke osim lana ubacite u multipraktik i pulsirate dok ne dobijete smjesu u kojoj će ostati još nešto krupnijih komadića, ali će sve biti dobro izmiješano. Za kraj rukom umiješajte lan. Ako vam se sve čini pregnjecavo, slobodno dodajte još lana, pošto je ovo jako fleksibilan recept.

Gotovu smjesu možete čuvati u hladnjaku do dva dana, ali ja baš ne bih riskirala dulje od toga jer bi se gljive mogle pokvariti.

Da pripremite klasične burgere, formirajte smjesu u pljeskavice. Ako ćete ih peći u tavi, moja je sugestija da ih prije toga ubacite u zamrzivač na jedno pola sata, pošto će tako bolje držati oblik. Također, burgere možete ispeći i u pećnici na protvanu, i to 30 minuta na 200°C, s time da će ispasti prilično mekani radi vode u gljivama, pa rukujte njima jako nježno. Bez obzira na to, biti će super fini.

Recepti za Sloppy Joe burgere i bolonjez umak od ove smjese slijede uskoro, pa ako ste zainteresirani navratite kroz koji dan ponovo na ovaj blog.

Vegan Minced ‘’Meat’’ (soy free, gluten free, paleo) / Vegansko mljeveno ”meso” (bez soje, bez glutena, paleo)

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.

IMGP7322

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.

IMGP7329


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.

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.

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)

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.

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.
