No-knead Mixed Corn Bread / Miješani kukuruzni kruh koji se ne mijesi

It’s been ages since I posted a bread recipe and, while it’s true that I haven’t baked as much bread during the last couple of months due to apartment renovations, I’m slowly getting back into the habit of making homemade bread pretty frequently. My latest exploit was with a mixed corn bread which turned out so delicious that I had to share it.

As always, I used a heavy cast iron lidded pot for baking the bread, but any heavy lidded, oven-safe dish will do.

IMGP7580

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields 1 medium sized loaf / 0.36 EUR)

For the dough:

1 and ½ cup corn flour (0.20 EUR)

1 and ½ cup all-purpose flour (0.10 EUR)

¼ tsp active dry yeast (0.03 EUR)

½ tsp salt (0.01 EUR)

1 tbsp sugar (0.01 EUR)

1 and ¼ cups warm water (–)

Additional:

Flour for sprinkling (0.01 EUR)

IMGP7578

IMGP7584

METHOD:

In a large bowl, whisk together flours, yeast, salt and sugar. Pour warm water on top and give a good stir so all the flour is fully incorporated. Cover the bowl with cling foil and leave to rest in a warm room overnight, so the dough can ferment and puff up.

The next day, place a heavy lidded oven-safe dish to the oven and preheat to 220°C. This is gonna take about 30 minutes, so while the oven and the dish get toasty, prepare the dough for the second rise. Dump the dough on a well-floured counter, fold over with a scraper a couple of times and shape into a ball. Transfer the dough to a bowl lined with parchment paper, similar in shape and size to the dish you’re going to use for baking. Cover with clean tea towel and leave to rise for a second time for 30 minutes.

After 30 minutes, and once the oven and the heavy pot are thoroughly preheated, carefully transfer the dough together with parchment paper into the hot pot and bake covered for 30 minutes. After 30 minutes, uncover and bake for additional 10 minutes to get that lovely crust. Once the bread is done, transfer to a wire rack and allow it to cool completely before slicing.

Prošlo je već sto godina od kada sam zadnji puta objavila recept za kruh. Glavni razlog zašto sam nekako smanjila količinu pečenja je bilo renoviranje stana, ali sada se polako opet vraćam u staru rutinu sa domaćim kruhom. Zadnji eksperiment je bio sa fantastičnim miješanim kukuruznim kruščićem, pa naravno moram sa vama podijeliti taj recept.

Kao i uvijek do sada, kruh sam pekla u željeznom loncu s poklopcem, ali možete koristiti bilo koju tešku posudu koja ima poklopac i sigurna je za korištenje u pećnici.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 1 srednju štrucu / 2,66 kn)

Za tijesto:

1 i ½ šalica kukuruznog brašna (1,50 kn)

1 i ½ šalica glatkog brašna (0,75 kn)

¼ žličice suhog kvasca (0,25 kn)

½ žličice soli (0,01 kn)

1 žlica šećera (0,05 kn)

1 i ¼ šalice tople vode (–)

Dodatno:

Brašno za posipanje (0,10 kn)

PRIPREMA:

U velikoj zdjeli skupa pomiješajte brašna, zobene, kvasac, sol i šećer. Izlijte preko svega toplu vodu i dobro promiješajte da se svo brašno inkorporira. Pokrijte zdjelu prijanjajućom folijom i ostavite preko noći u toploj prostoriji da tijesto fermentira i nabubri.

Sljedećeg dana stavite tešku posudu sa poklopcem u pećnicu da se sve skupa zagrije na 220°C. Za to će trebati oko 30 minuta, pa za to vrijeme ujedno priredite i tijesto za drugo dizanje. Iskrenite tijesto na dobro pobrašnjenu radnu plohu, te ga strugalicom nekoliko puta presavinite i oblikujte u kuglu. Preselite tijesto u posudu koja veličinom i oblikom odgovara onoj u kojoj ćete peći kruh, a koju ste obložili papirom za pečenje. Pokrijte čistom kuhinjskom krpom i pustite da miruje 30 minuta i da se diže drugi puta.

Nakon 30 minuta, kada su se pećnica i posuda dobro ugrijale, pažljivo preselite tijesto skupa sa papirom za pečenje u vruću posudu. Poklopite i stavite peći na 30 minuta. Nakon 30 minuta otklopite i pecite još 10 minuta da se napravi lijepa korica. Kada je kruh gotov preselite ga na rešetku da se skroz ohladi prije nego ga krenete rezati.

Homemade Coconut Milk (vegan, paleo) / Kokosovo mlijeko (vegansko, paleo)

Here’s another quick and easy treat for all of those who are fans of plant based milks. This coconut milk is even quicker to make compared to the cashew milk recipe I’ve posted, as it doesn’t require presoaking. And since desiccated coconut is pretty cheap, the milk is also super affordable and, needless to say, far superior in taste to store bought options. This milk should keep in your fridge for 4-5 days.

IMGP7540

IMGP7541

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields 3 cups / 0.11 EUR per cup / 0.33 EUR for all)

1 desiccated coconut (0.33 EUR)

3 cups water (–)

IMGP7545

METHOD:

Add coconut and water to a high speed blender and pulse for 2-3 minutes, until the milk is smooth and creamy. Strain the milk through a clean kitchen towel or a nut milk bag to separate from the pulp. Squeeze out as much liquid as you can from the pulp, then transfer the milk to a clean bottle. Store the coconut milk in your fridge and shake well before every use to re-emulsify.

I have a great curry recipe coming up with this milk so stay tuned. Also, don’t throw away the pulp, as it works awesome in smoothies, bread, cakes or pancakes. I’ve made a really tasty frozen vegan bounty squares with it and will share that recipe with you guys as well.

Evo jedan brzi i jako jednostavni recept za sve vas koji ste ljubitelji veganskih mlijeka. Ovo kokosovo mlijeko je još jednostavnije i brže za pripremiti od mlijeka od indijskih oraščića za koje sam ranije objavila recept jer kokos ne morate namakati. A pošto je i samo kokosovo brašno prilično jeftino, ovo mlijeko je još isplativije, uz to što je i daleko finije od onih kupovnih verzija. Ovakvo domaće kokosovo mlijeko će u hladnjaku držati kojih 4-5 dana.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 3 šalice / 0.83 kn po šalici / 2,50 kn za sve)

1 šalica kokosovog brašna (2,50 kn)

3 šalice vode (–)

PRIPREMA:

Kokos i vodu ubacite u jaki blender, pa pulsirajte 2-3 minute dok mlijeko ne bude glatko i kremasto. Mlijeko procijedite kroz čistu kuhinjsku krpu ili kroz specijalnu vrećicu za mlijeka od orašastih plodova kako bi ste ga razdvojili od pulpe. Iz pulpe rukama istisnite što više tekućine, te preselite mlijeko u čistu bocu. Čuvajte obavezno u hladnjaku i dobro protresite prije svake upotrebe kako bi se ponovno napravila emulzija.

Imam super recept za curry sa ovim mlijekom, pa bacite oko na blog ako vas to interesira. Također, pulpu nikako ne bacajte već ju upotrijebite za smoothyje, kruh, kolače ili palačinke. Ja sam pulpu iskoristila za prefine smrznute veganske bounty kocke, a ubrzo sa vama planiram i podijeliti taj recept.

Homemade Salty Crackers (vegan) / Slani krekeri (veganski)

I’m one of those people who can be quite ambivalent to sweets. But when it comes to salty snacks, put a bowl of chips in front of me and see them disappear faster than you can properly pronounce Eyjafjallajökull.

Therefore, these homemade salty crackers are my crack. They’re super easy to make and can keep in an airtight container at room temperature for a couple of weeks. That is, if you by any chance forget about them and don’t polish off the whole tray immediately. Also, they’re on a healthier side of spectrum than your regular store-bought chips, crackers and related products, so you can feel less guilty about you snacking frenzy. Just saying!

IMGP7454

IMGP7450

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields about 50 crackers / 0.50 EUR)

1 cup all-purpose flour (0.07 EUR)

1 cup finely ground sunflower seeds (0.13 EUR)

2 tbsp ground flax seeds (0.07 EUR)

1 tbsp sesame seeds (0.07 EUR)

1 tsp salt (0.01 EUR)

1 tsp cumin (0.07 EUR)

¼ tsp freshly ground black pepper (0.02 EUR)

Pinch of baking powder (0.01 EUR)

4 tbsp sunflower seed oil (0.05 EUR)

4-5 tbsp water (–)

IMGP7451

IMGP7452

IMGP7459

METHOD:

Preheat the oven to 170°C. In a bowl, mix together flour, ground sunflower seeds, flax seeds, sesame seeds, salt, cumin, pepper and baking powder. Add in the oil and about three tablespoons of water. Mix everything well until a shaggy dough forms and as needed, add the remaining water bit by bit until the dough holds together. Using your hands shape the dough into a flat disk and place it between two sheets of parchment paper. Roll the dough out into a thin sheet, remove the top parchment and cut into rectangles. If desired, you can sprinkle the crackers with a bit more salt, which isn’t necessary, but is highly suggested.

I’ve made these a few times so I can confirm that the crackers won’t expand, so there is no need to space them out. Simply carefully transfer the whole sheet of parchment with cut crackers on a large flat baking tray and bake for 20-25 minutes. My first attempt of making these (as seen on pictures) involved shaping the dough into a log, refrigerating, cutting into thin coins and then rolling out into even thinner disks, which not only proved to be super laborious, but completely unnecessary.

Once the crackers are done and golden brown, remove them from the oven and allow them to cool completely on a baking tray before storing in an airtight container at room temperature. Just don’t put them in the fridge because they’ll end up soggy.

Ja sam jedna od onih osoba koja može biti skroz ambivalentna prema slatkišima, ali zato stavite ispred mene zdjelu čipsa i samo gledajte kako ju počistim prije nego uspijete ispravno izgovoriti Eyjafjallajökull.

Naravno, ovi su krekeri moj crack. Jako ih je lako za napraviti, a u hermetički zatvorenoj posudi na sobnoj temperaturi mogu držati tjednima. Pod uvjetom da slučajno na njih zaboravite i ne sljuštite odmah cijeli protvan. Također, ipak su na zdravijoj strani spektra od tipičnih kupovnih čipseva, krekera i srodnih proizvoda, pa se možete osjećati manje krivima jer ste se zanijeli sa grickanjem. Samo kažem.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 50-tak krekera / 3,66 kn)

1 šalica glatkog brašna (0,50 kn)

1 šalica fino mljevenih suncokretovih sjemenki (1,00 kn)

2 žlice mljevenog lana (0,50 kn)

1 žlica sezama (0,50 kn)

1 žličica soli (0,01 kn)

1 žličica kima u zrnu (0,50 kn)

¼ žličice svježe mljevenog crnog papra (0,15 kn)

Prstohvat praška za pecivo (0,10 kn)

4 žlice suncokretovog ulja (0,40 kn)

4-5 žlica vode (–)

PRIPREMA:

Zagrijte pećnicu na 170°C. U zdjeli pomiješajte brašno, mljeveni suncokret, lan, sezam, sol, kim, papar i prašak za pecivo. Dodajte ulje i oko tri žlice vode, pa dobro sve promiješajte dok se ne oformi labavo tijesto. Po potrebi malo po malo dodajte ostatak vode dok se tijesto ne drži skupa. Rukama formirajte tijesto u disk i stavite ga između dva lista papira za pečenje. Razvaljajte u tanku plahtu, maknite gornji papir i izrežite tijesto u kvadratiće. Ako želite, posipajte krekere sa još mrvicom soli. Ovo nije nužno, ali je apsolutno preporučljivo.

Ja sam ove krekere radila već nekoliko puta i mogu vam reći kako se oni neće uopće raširiti dok se peku, tako da ih nema potrebe razmicati. Jednostavno pažljivo preselite list papira sa narezanim krekerima na ravni veliki protvan i pecite 20-25 minuta. Prvu turu krekera koju sam ikada napravila (a koja je i tu na slikama) radila sam tako da sam prvo tijesto formirala u kladu, onda ohladila, pa narezala na tanke novčiće, pa na kraju još tanje razvaljala u diskove. To se sve pokazalo ne samo užasno dugotrajnim, već i apsolutno nepotrebnim.

Kada su krekeri pečeni i zlatno-smeđi, izvadite ih iz pećnice i ostavite da se skroz ohlade na protvanu. Onda ih preselite u hermetički zatvorenu posudu i čuvajte na sobnoj temperaturi. Nemojte ih ni slučajno stavljati u hladnjak jer će se razgnjecati.

Homemade Cashew Milk (vegan, paleo) / Mlijeko od indijskih oraščića (vegansko, paleo)

If you are into plant based milks, this will be a game changer for you. This cashew milk comes together super quickly and the final product is rich, creamy and tastes fantastic. Store bought ones can’t even compare with it. The only downside is that it can only keep in your fridge for 3-4 days. However, it is still absolutely worth it.

I added some to my coffee and it was so delicious! Unfff!!!

IMGP7462

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields 3 cups / 0.47 EUR per cup / 1.41 EUR for all)

1 cup raw unsalted cashews (1.33 EUR)

3 cups water (–)

Optional:

1 tsp sweetener of choice – I used honey (0.07 EUR)

¼ tsp pure vanilla extract (0.01 EUR)

IMGP7463

IMGP7465

IMGP7468

METHOD:

Soak the cashews in water the night before. On the next day, drain and rinse the cashews, then add to a high-speed blender with three cups of fresh water, plus sweetener and vanilla, if using. Pulse for 2-3 minutes, until the milk is smooth and creamy.

Strain the milk through a clean kitchen towel or a nut milk bag to separate from the pulp. Squeeze out as much liquid as you can from the pulp, then transfer the milk to a clean bottle. Store the cashew milk in your fridge and shake well before every use to re-emulsify.

Also, don’t throw away the remaining pulp! Instead, use it in your smoothies, or in bread, cakes or pancakes. I’ve got a muffin recipe coming up which utilizes the leftover cashew pulp, so stay tuned if you need ideas.

More of that delicious coffee!

Ako vas furaju biljna mlijeka (odnosno, napitci), ovaj recept je kao stvoren za vas. Mlijeko od indijskih oraščića se može smutiti za čas, a konačni je proizvod boga, kremast i fantastičnog okusa. Kupovna mlijeka te vrste se uopće ne daju usporediti. Jedina loša strana je da takvo domaće mlijeko može držati u hladnjaku svega 3-4 dana. Međutim, apsolutno ga se isplati pripremiti.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 3 šalice / 3,52 kn po šalici / 10,55 kn za sve)

1 šalica sirovih neslanih indijskih oraščića (10,00 kn)

3 šalice vode (–)

Dodatno po izboru:

1 žličica sladila po izboru – ja sam upotrijebila med (0,50 kn)

¼ žličice ekstrakta od vanilije (0,05 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Večer prije namočite indijske oraščiće u vodi. Sljedeći dan ih procijedite, isperite i dodajte u jaki blender sa 3 šalice svježe vode, kao i sladilom i vanilijom, ako ih koristite. Pulsirajte 2-3 minute, dok mlijeko ne bude glatko i kremasto.

Mlijeko procijedite kroz čistu kuhinjsku krpu ili kroz specijalnu vrećicu za mlijeka od orašastih plodova kako bi ste ga razdvojili od pulpe. Iz pulpe rukama istisnite što više tekućine, te preselite mlijeko u čistu bocu. Takvo mlijeko obavezno čuvajte u hladnjaku i dobro protresite prije svake upotrebe kako bi ponovno napravila emulzija.

Također, nemojte ni slučajno baciti pulpu! Umjesto toga iskoristite ju u smoothyjima, kruhu, kolačima ili palačinkama. Imam recept za mafine koji koristi preostalu pulpu od indijskih oraščića, pa navratite ubrzo na blog ako vam trebaju ideje.

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

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 Sloppy Joe / Veganski Sloppy Joe burger

Alright, we’ve come to the last installment of my vegan minced ‘’meat’’ trilogy and I’ve saved my favorite recipe for the very end. This Sloppy Joe is pretty much everything you would want to have in a burger. I really hope you give this one a try because I am salivating just thinking about how good this was.

IMGP7411

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields 1 burger / 1.04 EUR)

1 tsp sunflower seed oil (0.01 EUR)

3-4 tbsp vegan minced “meat” (0.33 EUR)

1 burger bun (0.20 EUR)

2 slices of vegan cheese (0.27 EUR)

1 tsp mustard (0.03 EUR)

1 tbsp vegan mayo (0.07 EUR)

1 tbsp ketchup (0.03 EUR)

A few thin tomato slices (0.07 EUR)

A few thin onion slices (0.03 EUR)

IMGP7415

IMGP7417

METHOD:

Place a non-stick skillet on medium heat with a teaspoon of oil and fry the vegan mince until dark brown and slightly crispy, for about five minutes. Remove the mince from the skillet and set aside. Cut the burger bun in half and place on the skillet to slightly crisp up, cut side down.

Once the bun is done, spread the bottom half with mustard, add a slice of cheese and top it with fried mince. Top the minced ‘’meat’’ with another slice of cheese and return everything to your skillet so the cheese can melt. Cover the skillet with a lid and cook for just a minute or two, until the cheese is nice and melty. Once the cheese is done, top it with tomato and onion. Spread mayo and ketchup on the top half of the bun, cover your burger and dig in immediately.

Došli smo do zadnjeg dijela trilogije o veganskom mljevenom ”mesu”, a svoj sam najdraži recept sačuvala za kraj. Ovaj Sloppy Joe ima manje-više sve što bi ste mogli poželjeti u burgeru te se nadam da ćete isprobati recept u nastavku, jer meni cure sline samo kada se sjetim koliko mi je bilo fino.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 1 burger / 7,68 kn)

1 žličica suncoketovog ulja (0,03 kn)

3-4 žlice veganskog mljevenog ”mesa” (2,45 kn)

1 hamby pecivo (1,50 kn)

2 šnite veganskog sira (2,00 kn)

1 žličica senfa (0,25 kn)

1 žlica veganske majoneze (0,50 kn)

1 žlica kečapa (0,25 kn)

Par tankih šnita rajčice (0,50 kn)

Par tankih šnita luka (0,20 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Stavite tavicu na srednju vatru, pa na žličici ulja oko pet minuta pecite vegansko ”meso”, sve dok ne potamni i lagano se ne zahrska. Maknite ”meso” iz tave i stavite na stranu. Pecivo prerežite na pola i stavite na tavicu sa prerezanom stranom prema dolje da se blago zapeče.

Kada je pecivo gotovo, donju polovicu namažite senfom, stavite šnitu sira i po siru rasporedite ”meso”. Poklopite sa još jednom šnitom sira i tako sve zajedno vratite na tavicu da se sir rastopi. Poklopite tavicu i kuhajte samo minutu-dvije dok se sir ne počne topiti. Maknite s vatre i po siru poslažite šnite rajčice i luka. Gornju polovicu peciva premažite sa majonezom i kečapom, poklopite burger i odmah navalite.

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.
