Christmas Vegan Nutella Cookies (gluten free, paleo) / Božićni veganski Nutella keksi (bez glutena, paleo)

These cookies are super scrumptious and sweet and actually have zero Nutella in them. The secret of the famous spread’s magical flavor lies, in fact, within the toasted hazelnuts and cacao combo.

You can easily toast your own hazelnuts by throwing them into the oven at 175°C for about 15-20 minutes. Once they are fragrant and their skins are cracked, take them out and leave to cool completely. To peal the skins the easy way, just wrapped cooled hazelnuts into a kitchen towel and give them a good rub. Most skins will just slide off and you’ll have an easy time peeling off the rest with your hands.

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields about 50 cookies / 3.27 EUR)

For the cookie batter:

1 and ½ cup toasted hazelnuts (1.33 EUR)

1 cup pitted dates (0.67 EUR)

2 tbsp coconut oil, melted (0.27 EUR)

1 tsp pure vanilla extract (0.03 EUR)

2 tbsp raw cacao powder (0.27 EUR)

Pinch of salt (0.01 EUR)

1-2 tbsp plant based milk (0.01 EUR)

For the topping:

2 rows dark cooking chocolate (0.53 EUR)

½ tsp coconut oil (0.02 EUR)

2-3 tbsp crushed toasted hazelnuts (0.13 EUR)

IMGP8032

METHOD:

Pulse the toasted hazelnuts in a food processor into a fine powder. Remove and set aside, then add pitted dates to a food processor and pulse until you have a thick paste. Return in the hazelnuts, then add in coconut oil, vanilla, cacao powder and salt. Pulse until a thick dough comes together. Add in the milk bit by bit as needed. Remove the dough from food processor, wrap in cling foil and refrigerate for at least an hour, or up to 3-4 days in advance.

When ready to bake, remove the dough from fridge and allow it to sit at room temperature for 10-15 minutes, so it’s easier to roll out. Preheat the oven to 175°C and line a baking tray with parchment paper. Roll the dough out between two sheets of parchment paper and cut into desired shapes. Place the cookies on a prepared baking tray and bake for 8-10 minutes.

The cookies will still be soft when they come right out of the oven, but don’t worry, they’ll firm up as they cool. Allow the cookies to cool for about 5 minutes on their baking tray, then gently move them to a wire rack to cool completely.

Once the cookies are completely cool, melt the chocolate with coconut oil and cover each cookie with the mixture. Sprinkle each cookie with a bit of crushed hazelnuts before the chocolate firms up. Place the cookies in the fridge for 15-20 minutes so the chocolate firms up completely, then store in an airtight container in a cool dark place. The cookies should hold for at least a week or two.

Ovi keksići su jako bogati i slasni, a zapravo u njima uopće niti nema Nutelle. Tajna okusa, koji jako podsjeća na slavni namaz, je u kombinaciji tostiranih lješnjaka i kakao praha.

Lješnjake lako možete sami tostirati tako da ih ubacite u pećnicu na 175°C na jedno 15-20 minuta. Izvadite lješnjake iz pećnice kada zamiriše i tanka ljuskica im popuca, te ih ostavite da se skroz ohlade. Ljusku ćete onda lako skinuti sa lješnjaka tako da ih umotate u kuhinjsku krpu i dobro protrljate. Većina ljuski će sama otpasti, a rukama ćete lako oguliti ostatak.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 50-tak keksića / 24,41 kn)

Za tijesto:

1 i ½ šalica tostiranih lješnjaka (10,00 kn)

1 šalica odkoštenih datulja (5,00 kn)

2 žlice kokosovog ulja, rastopljenog (2,00 kn)

1 žličica ekstrakta od vanilije (0,20 kn)

2 žlice sirovog kakao praha (2,00 kn)

Prstohvat soli (0,01 kn)

1-2 žlice veganskog mlijeka (0,05 kn)

Za preljev:

2 reda tamne čokolade (4,00 kn)

½ žličice kokosovog ulja (0,15 kn)

2-3 žlice tostiranih i sjeckanih lješnjaka (1,00 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Tostirane lješnjake ubacite u multipraktik i pulsirajte dok ne dobijete fini prah. Izvadite iz multipraktika i stavite na stranu, pa u multipraktiku onda sameljite datulje u gustu pastu. Vratite k datuljama i lješnjake, pa dodajte još i kokosovo ulje, vaniliju, kakao i sol. Pulsirajte sve dok se ne formira gusto tijesto, a po potrebi dodajte u tijesto malo po malo mlijeka. Maknite tijesto iz multipraktika, zamotajte u prijanjajuću foliju i ostavite u hladnjaku da miruje barem sat vremena, ili do 3-4 dana.

Kada ste spremni za pečenje, tijesto 10-15 minuta ranije izvadite iz hladnjaka da malo otpusti kako bi ste ga lakše razvaljali. Zagrijte pećnicu na 175°C i obložite protvan papirom za pečenje. Tijesto tanko razvaljajte između dva sloja papira za pečenje i režite u željene oblike. Keksiće raširite po pripremljenom protvanu i pecite 8-10 minuta.

Keksi će još biti mekani kada ih izvadite iz pećnice, ali ne brinite, budu očvrsnuli kako se hlade. Ostavite kekse da se jedno pet minuta hlade na protvanu, a onda ih pažljivo preselite na rešetku i tako ohladite do kraja.

Kada su keksići ohlađeni, rastopite čokoladu sa kokosovim uljem i time premažite kekse. Posipajte sjeckanim lješnjacima prije nego se čokolada stvrdne. Kekse na 15-20 minuta stavite u hladnjak kako bi se čokolada do kraja stisnula, a kasnije čuvajte u hermetički zatvorenoj posudi na suhom i hladnom mjestu. Keksići bi trebali držati barem tjedan do dva.

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.

Recipes for Sloppy Joes and Bolognese sauce utilizing this mix are coming up, so keep an eye on this blog if you’re interested.

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.

Thick Quinoa, Bean and Veggie Stew (vegan) / Gusto varivo od kvinoje, graha i povrća (vegansko)

I’m about five years late to the quinoa bandwagon. To be honest, I wouldn’t even be sitting on the bandwagon if it weren’t for a very sweet co-worker ❤ who gave me a bunch of quinoa to finally give it a try. So with this in mind, expect a kale chips recipe on this blog in about two to three years.

I’ve been reading about the almighty quinoa all the time, but it’s pretty pricey over here and I had no idea what to expect taste-wise, so I could never really justify the splurge. But now that I’ve actually tried it, I am pretty hooked. And since a little goes a long way, the price factor will level out and quinoa recipes will still be quite affordable. Therefore, expect to see some more of those around this blog.

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields 6 servings / 0.87 EUR per serving / 5.23 EUR for all)

4 tbsp sunflower seed oil (0.05 EUR)

2 onions (0.13 EUR)

6 garlic cloves (0.20 EUR)

1 tsp garlic powder (0.01 EUR)

1 and ½ tsp salt (0.03 EUR)

½ tsp dried chili flakes (0.07 EUR)

1 tsp freshly ground black pepper (0.07 EUR)

1 tsp ground coriander (0.07 EUR)

1 tsp smoked paprika (0.07 EUR)

1 tsp sweet Hungarian paprika (0.03 EUR)

1 tsp dried basil (0.07 EUR)

1 bay leaf (0.01 EUR)

3 carrots (0.30 EUR)

1 cup uncooked quinoa (2.00 EUR)

2 cups precooked black beans (0.53 EUR)

2 tbsp ajvar – red pepper paste (0.13 EUR)

2 tbsp dried parsley (0.13 EUR)

1 can diced tomatoes (0.53 EUR)

1 cup tomato puree (0.27 EUR)

1 and ½ cups water (–)

2 cups frozen leaf spinach (0.53 EUR)

IMGP7191

IMGP7197

METHOD:

Wash, peel and finely dice all the veggies. Wash quinoa in a fine mesh colander under running water. Add oil to a big pot and saute onion on high heat for a few minutes until slightly translucent. Add in fresh garlic and garlic powder, salt, chili, black pepper, coriander, smoked and Hungarian paprika, basil and bay leaf and stir just for a minute, so the spices release their flavors. Then throw in carrots, quinoa, black beans, ajvar, parsley, diced tomatoes, tomato puree and water, give a good stir and bring to a boil.

As soon as the stew starts boiling, reduce heat to low and cook with a lid cracked open for 20 minutes. Stir occasionally and add in a splash of water if needed. Once the quinoa is cooked, remove from heat and stir in the frozen spinach. Leave covered for another 5-10 minutes until the spinach is thawed and cooked through from residual heat. Serve warm. This stew reheats great and will keep refrigerated for up to five days.

Recimo da sam oko pet godina zakasnila na cijeli kvinoja party. Istini za volju, ne bi ni bila na partyju da mi jako draga kolegica ❤ nije poklonila hrpu kvinoje da ju napokon isprobam. Imajući ovo na umu, očekujte recept za čips od kelja na ovom blogu za jedno dvije do tri godine.

O čudesnoj kvinoji sam stalno čitala, ali pošto je ovdje prilično skupa, a nisam znala što očekivati po pitanju okusa, nekako sam bila nesklona eksperimentiranju i investiciji. Ali sada kada sam kvinoju napokon i probala, mogu reći da sam se i navukla. A pošto se mala količina stvarno može dosta rastegnuti, nekako će se i cjenovno sve izjednačiti pa mislim da će i recepti biti skroz pristupačni. Tako da očekujte još recepata sa kvinojom na ovom blogu.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 6 porcija / 6,46 kn po porciji / 38,77 kn za sve)

4 žlice suncokretovog ulja (0,40 kn)

2 luka (1,00 kn)

6 češnjeva češnjaka (1,50 kn)

1 i ½ žličica soli (0,02 kn)

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

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

1 žličica mljevenog korijandera (0,50 kn)

1 žličica dimljene paprike (0,50 kn)

1 žličica slatke crvene paprike (0,25 kn)

1 žličica sušenog bosiljka (0,50 kn)

1 lovorov list (0,10 kn)

3 mrkve (2,25 kn)

1 šalica sirove kvinoje (15,00 kn)

2 šalice kuhanog crnog graha (4,00 kn)

2 žlice ajvara (1,00 kn)

2 žlice sušenog peršina (1,00 kn)

1 konzerva sjeckane rajčice (4,00 kn)

1 šalica pasirane rajčice (2,00 kn)

1 i ½ šalica vode (–)

2 šalice smrznutog špinata u listovima (4,00 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Operite, ogulite i fino nasjeckajte svo povrće. U mrežastoj cjediljci dobro isperite kvinoju pod mlazom vode. Dodajte ulje u veliki lonac, pa na jakoj vatri par minuta dinstajte luk dok ne bude staklast. Ubacite svježi češnjak, češnjak u prahu, sol, čili, papar, korijander, dimljenu i slatku papriku, bosiljak i lovorov list, te promiješajte i kuhajte samo minutu da začini zamiriše. Sada dodajte mrkvu, kvinoju, grah, ajvar, peršin, sjeckanu i pasiranu rajčicu te vodu, dobro promiješajte i pustite da zavrije.

Čim varivo zavrije smanjite vatru i krčkajte sa odškrinutim poklopcem 20 minuta. Povremeno promiješajte, a po potrebi dodajte još malo vode. Kada je kvinoja skroz kuhana maknite sve s vatre i umiješajte smrznuti špinat. Poklopite i ostavite da miruje još 5-10 minuta dok se špinat ne odmrzne i ne skuha od topline u loncu. Poslužite toplo. Ovo se varivo super podgrijava, a u hladnjaku će držati do pet dana.

No Bake Vegan Jaffa Squares / Veganske jaffa kocke – bez pečenja

I feel like we’ve stepped far enough from the winter festivities that it’s morally acceptable to post a desert recipe. This is a very easy, very lazy and reasonably healthy desert option, so I see no reason as to why you shouldn’t make it.

IMGP6959

IMGP6939

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields 20 squares / 0.13 EUR per square / 2.66 EUR for all)

For the cake base:

1 cup ground toasted hazelnuts (1.00 EUR)

2 tbsp coconut oil, melted (0.27 EUR)

1 tbsp honey (0.13 EUR)

1 tsp pure vanilla extract (0.03 EUR)

For the orange filling:

1 large orange (0.40 EUR)

2 tbsp honey (0.27 EUR)

1 tbsp corn starch (0.03 EUR)

1-2 tbsp water (–)

For ganache:

2 tbsp raw cocoa powder (0.13 EUR)

2 tbsp coconut oil, melted (0.27 EUR)

1 tbsp honey (0.13 EUR)

IMGP6940

IMGP6944

IMGP6958

METHOD:

Line a square baking dish with parchment paper and set aside. Mix together all cake base ingredients and transfer to prepared baking dish. Evenly distribute the mixture and using your hands press it into the bottom. Place in freezer and leave to sit there for about 15-20 minutes.

Meanwhile while the cake base is resting, prepare the filling. Add peeled orange and honey to a food processor and pulse until uniform. Transfer to a small saucepan and cook for about 5-10 minutes to slightly thicken. Dissolve corn starch in a bit of water in a cup or a small bowl, then gradually stir into the orange. Cook for a few more minutes, while stirring constantly, to thicken even more. Pour the orange filling on top of the chilled base and cool completely before putting in the freezer for at least 30 minutes.

Make ganache by mixing together cocoa powder, melted coconut oil and honey. Pour over the orange filling and quickly even out. You need to be super quick about this, because the coconut butter will solidify fast once being exposed to the cold. Return the cake to the freezer for a few more hours before cutting into squares. Serve cold or frozen.

Mislim da je prošlo dovoljno vremena od zimskih blagdana tako da je skroz moralno prihvatljivo objaviti recept za slasticu. Ovo je jako lagani, jako lijeni i poprilično zdravi desert, tako da ne vidim razloga zašto ga ne bi ste trebali napraviti.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 20 jaffa kocki / 0,99 kn po kocki / 19,95 kn za sve)

Za biskvit:

1 šalica tostiranih mljevenih lješnjaka (7,50 kn)

2 žlice kokosovog ulja, rastopljenog (2,00 kn)

1 žlica meda (1,00 kn)

1 žličica ekstrakta od vanilije (0,20 kn)

Za kremu od naranče:

1 velika naranča (3,00 kn)

2 žlice meda (2,00 kn)

1 žlica kukuruznog škroba (0,25 kn)

1-2 žlice vode (–)

Za čokoladnu glazuru:

2 žlice sirovog kakao praha (1,00 kn)

2 žlice kokosovog ulja, rastopljenog (2,00 kn)

1 žlica meda (1,00 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Obložite četvrtasti protvan papirom za pečenje i stavite na stranu. Pomiješajte sve sastojke za biskvit, pa smjesu prstima ravnomjerno utisnite u pripremljeni protvan. Stavite u zamrzivač na 15-20 minuta.

Dok se biskvit hladi, pripremite kremu. Oguljenu naranču i med ubacite u multipraktik i propulsirajte u jednoličnu masu. Preselite u mali lončić i kuhajte 5-10 minuta da se malo zgusne. Kukuruzni škrob u posebnoj posudi rastopite u malo vode, pa onda postepeno umiješajte u kremu od naranče. Kuhajte još koju minutu uz stalno miješanje da se sve još više zgusne. Kremu prelijte preko ohlađenog biskvita, pustite da se ohladi na sobnu temperaturu pa ubacite u zamrzivač na barem 30 minuta.

Napravite glazuru tako da pomiješajte skupa kakao prah, rastopljeno kokosovo ulje i med. Prelijte preko ohlađene kreme i brzo poravnajte. Morate stvarno biti brzi jer će se kokosovo ulje početi zgušnjavati čim dođe u dodir sa hladnom kremom. Vratite kolač u zamrzivač na još koji sat prije nego ga narežete na kocke. Poslužite ohlađeno ili smrznuto.

Beetroot and Walnut Chocolate Cake with Crème Fraîche Frosting (wheat and refined sugar free) / Čokoladna torta od cikle i oraha sa mileram glazurom (bez pšenice i rafiniranog šećera)

Last year I first tried making a beetroot chocolate cake and it was a huge success. It’s worth making just to see the faces of people when you tell them they are eating a beetroot, as it simply tastes like chocolate. The beets are well camouflaged and only give out a subtle earthy aroma. I wanted to make this cake even healthier so I tweaked the original recipe and kicked out wheat flour and refined sugar. I also dumped in more beetroot. So this cake is actually a baked huge smoothie.

IMGP6800

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields 1 medium sized cake / 6.22 EUR)

For the dough:

3 large (about 500 grams total) cooked and peeled beetroots (1.20 EUR)

2 eggs (0.40 EUR)

1 tsp pure vanilla extract (0.03 EUR)

5 tbsp honey (0.67 EUR)

4 tbsp butter, melted (0.53 EUR)

2 tbsp raw cocoa powder (0.13 EUR)

1 cup ground walnuts (1.33 EUR)

2 cups finely ground oats (0.40 EUR)

½ tsp baking powder (0.01 EUR)

¼ tsp baking soda (0.01 EUR)

Pinch of salt  (0.01 EUR)

For the crème fraîche frosting:

1 cup crème fraiche (1.00 EUR)

1 tsp pure vanilla extract (0.03 EUR)

3 tbsp honey (0.40 EUR)

Additional:

Butter for greasing the pan (0.07 EUR)

IMGP6811

METHOD:

Preheat the oven to 200°C. Grease a cake pan and line with parchment paper. Set aside. Add cooked and peeled beets to food processor and pulse until creamy. Reserve a teaspoon of beet puree for frosting. Add eggs, vanilla and honey to remaining beets in the food processor and pulse until smooth. Dump in melted butter and cocoa powder, then pulse again to fully incorporate.

In a bowl, whisk together ground walnuts, ground oats, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Pour the beet mixture over dry ingredients and stir to combine. You can also taste the batter to see if it needs more sweetness. Transfer the batter into the prepared pan and gently shake to even out. Bake for 30 minutes.

While the dough is baking, prepare the frosting by combining crème fraîche, vanilla, honey and reserved tablespoon of beet puree. As soon as the beet dough is baked, pour frosting on top and even out. Turn off the oven and return the frosted cake to it for another 5 minutes. Remove the cake from the oven and allow it to come to room temperature before refrigerating for a few hours before serving.

Prošle sam godine prvi puta napravila čokoladni kolač sa ciklom koji je bio veliki hit. Isplati ga se napraviti samo da vidite izraze na licima ljudi kada im kažete da jedu ciklu. Obzirom da je cikla dobro zakamuflirana u kolaču, osjeti se samo njena blaga zemljana aroma. Htjela sam da ovaj kolač bude još zdraviji od onog prije, pa sam izbacila pšenično brašno i rafinirani šećer. Također sam dodala i još više cikle. Tako da je ovaj kolač zapravo jedan ogroman pečeni smoothie.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 1 srednje veliki kolač / 46,47 kn)

Za tijesto:

3 velike (oko 500 grama ukupno) kuhane i oguljene cikle (9,00 kn)

2 jaja (3,00 kn)

1 žličica ekstrakta od vanilije (0,20 kn)

5 žlica meda (5,00 kn)

4 žlice maslaca, rastopljene (4,00 kn)

2 žlice sirovog kakao praha (1,00 kn)

1 šalica mljevenih oraha (10,00 kn)

2 šalice fino mljevenih zobenih pahuljica (3,00 kn)

½ žličice praška za pecivo (0,05 kn)

¼ žličice sode bikarbone (0,01 kn)

Prstohvat soli (0,01 kn)

Za mileram glazuru:

1 šalica milerama (7,50 kn)

1 žličica ekstrakta od vanilije (0,20 kn)

3 žlice meda (3,00 kn)

Dodatno:

Maslac za namastiti kalup (0,50 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Zagrijte pećnicu na 200°C. Namastite kalup i obložite papirom za pečenje, pa stavite na stranu. Stavite kuhane i oguljene cikle u multipraktik i pulsirajte da budu kremaste. Žličicu pirea od cikle sačuvajte sa strane za glazuru. U preostalu ciklu u multipraktiku dodajte jaja, vaniliju i med, pa pulsirajte dok se ne sjedini. Na kraju ubacite i rastopljeni maslac i kakao prah, pa još jednom propulsirajte.

U zdjeli pomiješajte mljevene orahe, mljevene zobene pahuljice, prašak za pecivo, sodu bikarbonu i sol. Preko toga prelijte smjesu cikle i miješajte dok se sve ne sjedini. Možete slobodno i probati smjesu pa vidjeti ako treba dodati još meda. Preselite smjesu u pripremljen kalup i nježno protresite da se ujednači. Pecite 30 minuta.

Dok se tijesto peče napravite glazuru tako da pomiješate mileram, vaniliju, med i žličicu cikle koju ste sačuvali. Čim je tijesto pečeno prelijte preko svega glazuru i poravnajte. Isključite pečnicu, ali vratite kolač sa glazurom u još vruću pećnicu na 5 minuta. Izvadite kolač iz pečnice i pustite da se ohladi na sobnu temperaturu, prije nego ga stavite u hladnjak. Pustite kolač u hladnjaku da odstoji nekoliko sati prije posluživanja.

Barley and Millet Mushroom Skillet / Ječam i proso sa gljivama

I’m gonna just throw this out in the open. This dish is very fugly looking. Don’t cook it if you’re trying to impress on a first date. On the other hand, it’s also so comforting and tasty. So maybe reserve it for that date night when you stop feeling uncomfortable parading your ugliest, but coziest, sweatpants in front of your significant other. Or, you know, just keep a batch around for those weeknights when you’re too zonked to even consider cooking. Trust me – you’ll thank yourself on any Wednesday evening for having sense enough to whip this up on a lazy Sunday.

Small chunk of bacon (0.67 EUR)

500 grams of portobello mushrooms (2.00 EUR)

METHOD:

Finely dice all of the vegetables and bacon. Halve and slice the mushrooms. Place a large skillet on high heat to warm up. Add oil, then saute onion for a few minutes until softened. Add in bacon and cook to crisp up. Gradually add in sliced mushrooms to cook them down. It probably looks like you have an enormous amount overflowing your skillet, but those will cook down in just minutes.

When mushrooms have cooked down, add in garlic, tomato, millet, barley, salt, pepper, bay leaf and water. Stir to combine, bring to a boil, immediately reduce heat to low and cook with a lid cracked open for 25-30 minutes, until barley is cooked through. Fluff up with a fork and serve sprinkled with fresh parsley.

This dish reheats and freezes great, so do yourself a big favor and stock up.

Biti ću iskrena sa vama: ovo jelo izgleda užasno grdo. Nemojte ga kuhati da nekog impresionirate na prvom spoju. S druge strane, jako je fino. Pa ga možda spremite za večeri kada vam prestane biti neugodno pred boljom polovicom defilirati u vašoj najružnijoj i najudobnijoj trenirci. Ili jednostavno imajte zalihu za dane u tjednu kada ste prekrepani da i pomislite na kuhanje. Vjerujte mi – reći ćete si jedno veliko hvala u srijedu navečer što ste bili dovoljno mudri da si ovo skuhate u lijenu nedjelju.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 6 porcija / 4,73 kn po porciji / 28,36 kn za sve)

2 žlice suncokretovog ulja (0,10 kn)

1 veliki luk (0,75 kn)

Mali komadić špeka (5,00 kn)

500 g šampinjona (15,00 kn)

3 češnja češnjaka (0,75 kn)

1 velika rajčiuca (2,00 kn)

½ šalice prosa (3,00 kn)

½ šalice ječmene kaše (0,50 kn)

1 žličica soli (0,01 kn)

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

1 lovorov list (0,20 kn)

2 ½ šalice vode (–)

2 žlice sjeckanog svježeg peršina (1,00 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Fino nasjeckajte svo povrće i špek. Raspolovite i narežite gljive na listiće. Stavite veliku tavu na jaku vatru i pustite da se ugrije. Dodajte u tavu ulje pa kratko popržite luk da omekša. Ubacite špek i dinstajte ga dok se ne zahrska. Postepeno dodajte i kuhajte gljive da iz njih izađe većina tekućine. Možda će vam se učiniti da imate enormnu količinu gljiva u tavi, ali će se one brzo iskuhati i smanjiti u volumenu.

Kada su gljive gotove, dodajte češnjak, rajčicu, proso, ječam, sol, papar, lovorov list i vodu. Dobro promiješajte, pustite da zavrije pa smanjite vatru na skroz lagano. Kuhajte sa odškrinutim poklopcem 25-30 minuta, dok se ječam skroz ne skuha. Vilicom raštrkajte i poslužite posipano svježim peršinom.

Ovo se jelo super podgrijava i smrzava, pa si napravite veliku uslugu i nakuhajte veću zalihu.
