Additional

imgp5936

In a bowl whisk an egg with a teaspoon of cold water and pinch of salt and pepper. Add butter to a pan set on medium heat. Once the butter melts, swish around the pan, so it gets coated evenly. Pour in the whisked egg so it’s distributed in a thin and even layer, then sprinkle with shredded cheese. Cook for about two minutes, until the bottom of the egg starts getting golden-brown and the top with the cheese is just set. Fold the omelette in half, press it down with a spatula and remove from heat.

To assemble the sandwiches, cut the omelette in half and place each half over a slice of toasted bread. Dollop with guacamole and serve immediately.

Mushrooms with Chili Scrambled Eggs / Gljive i kajgana sa čilijem

I love mushrooms and I love scrambled eggs, but cooking them together often results with eggs swishing in mushroom water. And that’s pretty yucky. So I’ve decided to deconstruct the mushroom scrambled eggs and make two separate dishes.Which is also a breeze, as it all cooks fairly quickly. Plus, you can use the same pan and thus have less to clean up. And there you have a perfect weekend breakfast or weekday dinner. IMGP3964

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields 2 servings / 1.67 EUR per serving / 3.34 EUR for all)

For the mushrooms:

1 tbsp vegetable oil (0.01 EUR)

1 medium leek (0.13 EUR)

1 small onion (0.07 EUR)

2 tbsp butter (0.27 EUR)

250 g cremini mushrooms (0.73 EUR)

METHOD:

Wash and finely chop leek, onion, parsley and chili. Cut mushrooms in thin stripes. Heat a skillet with tablespoon of oil, add leek and onion and sauté for a minute or two on high. Add butter, mushrooms, salt and pepper and stir well. Cook for a few minutes, stirring occasionally, until mushrooms cook down and most of their liquid evaporates. Remove from heat, fold in fresh parsley and set aside on a plate.

IMGP3966

Wipe the skillet clean with a paper towel and place on medium heat with a tablespoon of vegetable oil. Add diced chili and sauté for a minute or two. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, whisk eggs with milk and a pinch of salt. Pour eggs over chili and gently fold with a spatula for up to a minute, until cooked through. Serve immediately.


Obožavam gljive i obožavam kajganu, ali kada ih kuham zajedno rezultat su često jaja koja se bljućkaju u vodici od gljiva. A to je poprilično gadno. Zato sam odlučila rastaviti kajganu s gljivama na dva zasebna jela. Što je također brzo gotovo jer se sve za čas skuha. Osim toga, možete iskoristiti istu tavu i uštediti na čišćenju. I tako imate savršeni vikend doručak ili tjednu večeru.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 2 porcije / 12,42 kn po porciji / 24,84 kn za sve)

Za gljive:

1 žlica ulja (0,01 kn)

1 srednji poriluk (1,00 kn)

1 mali luk (0,50 kn)

2 žlice maslaca (2,00 kn)

250 g smeđih šampinjona (5,50 kn)

100 g shiitaka (7,00 kn)

Prstohvat soli (0,01 kn)

Prstohvat svježe mljevenog crnog papra (0,05 kn)

Pregršt svježeg peršina (1,00 kn)

Za čili kajganu:

1 žlica ulja (0,01 kn)

2 male čili papričice (1,00 kn)

4 jaja (6,00 kn)

½ šalice mlijeka (0,75 kn)

Prstohvat soli (0,01 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Operite i fino nasjeckajte poriluk, luk, peršin i čili. Narežite gljive na listiće. Zagrijte tavu sa žlicom ulja, pa dodajte poriluk i luk i dinstajte minutu-dvije na jakoj vatri. Dodajte maslac, gljive, sol i papar i dobro promiješajte. Kuhajte nekoliko minuta uz povremeno miješanje dok većina tekućine iz gljiva ne ispari. Umiješajte svježi peršin pa odložite na stranu na tanjuru.

Obrišite tavu papirnatim ručnikom, dodajte žlicu ulja i stavite na srednje jaku vatru. Dodajte sitno narezani čili i pirjajte minutu-dvije. U međuvremenu, u maloj zdjelici razmitite jaja sa mlijekom i solju. Prelijte jaja preko čilija, pa špatulom nježno preklapajte do jedne minute, dok se ne skuhaju. Poslužite odmah.
