Black Wings in Miso with Veggie Stir-Fry / Crna pileća krilca u miso marinadi sa povrćem iz woka

These wings are really easy to make and are a perfect solution for a busy weekday nights. We had a pair of enormous chicken wings at home so one of those was enough per serving, as we had them with plenty of veggies on the side. Feel free to adjust the measures to your own liking, though.

imgp8062

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields 2 servings / 1.69 EUR per serving / 3.38 EUR for all)

For the chicken:

2 large chicken wings (1.33 EUR)

1 tbsp miso paste (0.27 EUR)

Good pinch of salt (0.01 EUR)

Good pinch of dried red pepper flakes (0.02 EUR)

1 tbsp sunflower seed oil (0.01 EUR)

1-2 tsp water (–)

For the veggies:

2 tbsp sunflower seed oil (0.03 EUR)

½ of medium sized cauliflower head (0.66 EUR)

1 carrot (0.10 EUR)

4 garlic cloves (0.13 EUR)

1 onion (0.10 EUR)

½ of medium sized kale head (0.33 EUR)

2 tbsp soy sauce (0.27 EUR)

1 tsp sugar (0.01 EUR)

1 tsp toasted sesame oil (0.07 EUR)

1 tsp corn starch (0.01 EUR)

4 tbsp warm water (–)

1 tbsp sesame seeds (0.03 EUR)

imgp8064

METHOD:

The evening before wash and pat dry the chicken wings. Whisk together miso paste, salt, red pepper flakes, oil and water, then thoroughly rub the marinade into the wings. Allow the wings to sit in your fridge until the next day, so that the flavors can soak into the meat.

The next day preheat the oven to 200°C. Line a baking tray with parchment paper, drain the wings off excess marinade and spread on prepared baking tray. Bake for 30-40 minutes, until charred and crispy to your liking (newsflash – we like our meat on the carbonized side! :D).

While the wings are roasting, prepare the veggies. Wash, peel and chop everything up. Place a deep skillet or a wok on high heat to properly warm up. Add in a bit of oil and cauliflower chunks, then cook for about five minutes, until cauliflower is crispy on all sides. Add in carrot, garlic and onion, then stir-fry those for a few minutes before adding in chopped kale. Give a good stir and cover your pan with a lid and leave it alone for a few minutes so the kale wilts down.

In a small bowl, whisk together soy sauce, sugar, sesame oil, corn starch and water. Pour the sauce over veggies and give a good stir. Cook briefly so the sauce thickens and remove from heat. Sprinkle the veggies with sesame seeds and serve along the roasted wings.

Ova krilca su jako jednostavna za prirediti i savršeno su rješenje kada preko tjedna želite nešto na brzinu smutiti nakon posla. Mi smo doma imali par enormnih pilećih krilca, pa nam je po jedno krilce bilo dovoljno za porciju, posebno zato što smo kao prilog imali gomilu povrća. Naravno, vi si niže količine svakako prilagodite vlastitom ukusu.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 2 porcije / 12,64 kn po porciji / 25,28 kn za sve)

Za meso:

2 velika pileća krilca (10,00 kn)

1 žlica miso paste (2,00 kn)

Dobar prstohvat soli (0,01 kn)

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

1 žlica suncokretovog ulja (0,10 kn)

1-2 žličice vode (–)

Za povrće:

2 žlice suncokretovog ulja (0,20 kn)

½ srednje glavica cvjetače (5,00 kn)

1 mrkva (0,75 kn)

4 češnja češnjaka (1,00 kn)

1 luk (0,75 kn)

½ srednje glavica kelja (2,50 kn)

2 žlice soja sosa (2,00 kn)

1 žličica šećera (0,02 kn)

1 žličica tostiranog sezamovog ulja (0,50 kn)

1 žličica kukuruznog škroba (0,05 kn)

4 žlice tople vode (–)

1 žlica sezama (0,25 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Večer prije operite i kuhinjskim ručnikom dobro posušite krilca. Razmutite u glatku pastu miso pastu, sol, čili, ulje i vodu, pa tu marinadu dobro utrljajte u meso. Ostavite krilca da odstoje preko noći u hladnjaku kako bi upila sve arome iz marinade.

Sljedeći dan zagrijte pećnicu na 200°C. Protvan obložite papirom za pečenje, krilca ocijedite od suvišne marinade, te ih raširite po protvanu. Pecite 30-40 minuta, dok krilca ne budu zapečena i hrskava prema vašem ukusu (kao što i sami vidite, nama je meso super ako je skoro pa karbonizirano! :D).

Dok se krilca peku, priredite povrće. Operite, ogulite i sve nasjeckajte. Duboku tavu ili wok stavite na jaku vatru da se dobro zagrije. Dodajte malo ulja i komade cvjetače, pa pržite oko pet minuta dok se cvjetača ne zahrska sa svih strana. Dodajte mrkvu, češnjak i luk, pa i njih pržite nekoliko minuta prije nego dodate kelj. Sve dobro promiješajte i poklopite wok, te ostavite tako nekoliko minuta da kelj povene.

U maloj zdjelici pomiješajte soja sos, šećer, sezamovo ulje, kukuruzni škrob i vodu. Umak prelijte preko povrća i promiješajte. Kratko prokuhajte, samo koliko treba da se umak zgusne i maknite s vatre. Povrće posipajte sezamom i poslužite sa pečenim krilcima.

Chocolate Chia and Flax Pudding (vegan) / Čokoladni puding od chie i lana (veganski)

If you are in search of new healthy breakfast ideas, this recipe might be just the thing for you. It’s awesome for meal prep and can later be enjoyed also as a healthy snack or desert. Of course, you can substitute sugar with stevia to also make this keto friendly, or use some other healthier sweetener options, but honestly, I was okay with a bit of sugar in it, as the recipe below yields multiple servings.

imgp8109

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields 4 generous servings / 0.58 EUR per serving / 2.32 EUR for all)

Ako ste u potrazi za nekim novim zdravim doručkom, ovaj recept bi mogao biti baš za vas. Super je jer se može prirediti unaprijed, pa kasnije imate spreman ne samo doručak, već i zdravi snack ili desert. Naravno, možete zamijeniti šećer sa stevijom pa će ovo jelo biti i izvrsno za one koji su na keto dijeti. Također, možete upotrijebiti i neke druge zdravije opcije zaslađivača, ali meni iskreno malo šećera nije smetalo jer je ovaj recept ionako za više porcija.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 4 porcije / 4,33 kn po porciji / 17,31 kn za sve)

2 žlice sirovog kakao praha (2,00 kn)

2 žlice šećera (0,10 kn)

½ šalice mljevenog lana (1,00 kn)

Dobar prstohvat soli (0,01 kn)

2 šalice veganskog mlijeka (6,00 kn)

1 žličica ekstrakta od vanilije (0,20 kn)

½ šalice chia sjemenki (6,00 kn)

Dodatno po želji:

2 žlice badema u listićima za posipanje (2,00 kn)

PRIPREMA:

U zdjelici pomiješajte kakao, šećer, lan i sol. Dodajte mlijeko i vaniliju, pa miješajte sve dok se šećer ne rastopi i sastojci se ne sjedine. Sada dodajte i chiu, te još jednom dobro promiješajte. Preselite puding u staklenku, čvrsto zatvorite i protresite. Stavite u hladnjak preko noći da se puding zgusne. Netom prije posluživanja posipajte listićima badema.

Ovaj puding će u hermetički zatvorenoj posudi u hladnjaku držati barem pet dana.

Bean, Olive and Caper Salad with Balsamic Reduction (vegan) / Salata od graha, maslina i kapara sa reduciranim acetom balsamicom (veganska)

This salad is really killing it, but is super easy and quick to make. The balsamic reduction takes things to a whole new level and I suggest you cook up a bigger batch and store any extras in the fridge for future recipes.

IMGP7871

IMGP7866

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields 2 servings / 1.08 EUR per serving / 2.16 EUR for all)

¼ cup of balsamic vinegar (0.33 EUR)

1 can beans (0.67 EUR)

½ cup pitted green olives (0.40 EUR)

3 tbsp capers (0.40 EUR)

1 small purple onion (0.10 EUR)

2 tbsp chopped fresh parsley (0.13 EUR)

2 tbsp olive oil (0.09 EUR)

Pinch of salt (0.01 EUR)

Good pinch of freshly ground black pepper (0.03 EUR)

IMGP7868

IMGP7869

METHOD:

To make the balsamic reduction, add balsamic vinegar to a small saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for about 10 minutes, until thickened and reduced in volume. The reduction will thicken even more as it cools down.

While the balsamic vinegar is simmering, rinse beans, olives and capers under running water and leave to drain. Chop the olives into rounds. Peel and finely dice the red onion. Toss all of the ingredients together once the balsamic reduction cools down. Taste and adjust seasoning. Serve chilled.

Ova salata je mrak, a ujedno i jako jednostavna i brza za pripremiti. Reducirani aceto daje još onaj ekstra štih, a moja je preporuka da si svakako pripremite malo ekstra aceta da imate za buduće recepte, te ga u međuvremenu čuvate u frižideru.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 2 porcije / 8,09 kn po porciji / 16,17 kn za sve)

¼ šalice aceta balsamica (2,50 kn)

1 konzerva graha (5,00 kn)

½ šalice odkoštenih zelenih maslina (3,00 kn)

3 žlice kapara (3,00 kn)

1 mali ljubičasti luk (0,75 kn)

2 žlice svježeg sjeckanog peršina (1,00 kn)

2 žlice maslinovog ulja (0,66 kn)

Prstohvat soli (0,01 kn)

Dobar prstohvat svježe mljevenog crnog papra (0,25 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Pripremite reducirani aceto tako da aceto balsamico stavite u malu posudicu na jaku vatru i pustite da zavrije. Smanjite vatru, pa krčkajte desetak minuta, dok se ne zgusne i ne reducira. Imajte na umu kako će se aceto još dodatno zgusnuti kako se bude hladio.

Dok se aceto krčka, isperite grah, masline i kapare pod mlazom vode i stavite da se sve dobro ocijedi. Masline narežite na kolutiće. Luk ogulite i sitno nasjeckajte. Pomiješajte sve sastojke kada se reducirani aceto ohladi. Kušajte i prilagodite začine, te poslužite ohlađeno.

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.

IMGP7396

IMGP7397

IMGP7401

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.

IMGP7410
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.

Grilled Trout with Bok Choy (paleo) / Pastrva i bok choi sa žara (paleo)

My lovely co-worker brought me fresh trout from her pond, so that’s what we had for a fancy lunch a few weeks ago. I’ve been meaning to type up a recipe, but life kinda always got in the way. However, I finally did manage to get to it. I just loved how simple and tasty this dish turned out, so had to share with the internet. In this recipe I used prepackaged lemon pepper seasoning mix for the trout, but I think any combination of zesty citrus flavors would work really well, so feel free to use whatever you have on hand.

IMGP7391

IMGP7379

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields 2 servings / 3.68 EUR per serving / 7.35 EUR for all)

For the trout:

1 kilo of fresh trout (5.33 EUR)

Good pinch of salt (0.01 EUR)

Good pinch of lemon-pepper seasoning (0.03 EUR)

For bok choy:

2 heads of baby bok choy (1.33 EUR)

2 tbsp ketchup (0.07 EUR)

2 tbsp soy sauce (0.27 EUR)

2 tsp toasted sesame oil (0.27 EUR)

Good pinch of freshly ground black pepper (0.03 EUR)

Additional:

Sunflower seed oil for brushing the pan (0.01 EUR)

IMGP7382

IMGP7383

METHOD:

Clean the trout and cut it into fillets. If you’ve never filleted a fish before (I haven’t!), this is the video that I’ve watched to find out how it’s done and I had no problem making fillets on the first try. It took me maybe ten minutes and was super easy and straightforward. The only thing which is a must is a good and really sharp filleting knife.

Pat the trout fillets dry and rub them with salt and lemon-pepper seasoning on both sides. Set aside. Wash and pat dry the bok choy, cut in half and rub with ketchup, soy sauce, sesame oil and freshly ground black pepper.

Place a grilling pan on medium heat to warm up and lightly brush with sunflower seed oil. Arrange the trout fillets skin sides down on a pan and cook for about two to three minutes. Gently flip over and finish cooking on the other side for another minute. Remove the fillets from the pan and keep warm while you grill the bok choy. Arrange it on the same pan, cut sides down and grill for about 3-4 minutes. Flip over and cook for another minute or two. Serve it all immediately while still warm.

Pred par tjedana mi je moja draga kolegica donijela svježe pastrve iz svojeg ribnjaka, tako da smo si napravili fensi ručak. Već neko vrijeme planiram napisati recept, ali uvijek mi se nekako život prepriječi na putu. No eto, ipak sam na kraju uspjela prionuti na posao. Jako mi se svidjelo kako je ovo jelo ispalo jednostavno i fino, pa sam ga morala podijeliti sa internetom. U ovom sam receptu za ribu upotrijebila gotovi limun-papar miks začina. Međutim, mislim da bi bilo kakve citrusne arome super pasale, pa vi slobodno iskoristite ono što vam je pri ruci.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 2 porcije / 27,56 kn po porciji / 55,11 kn za sve)

Za pastrvu:

1 kg svježe pastrve (40,00 kn)

Dobar prstohvat soli (0,01 kn)

Dobar prstohvat limun-papar mješavine začina (0,25 kn)

Za bok choy:

2 glavice baby bok choya (10,00 kn)

2 žlice kečapa (0,50 kn)

2 žlice soja sosa (2,00 kn)

2 žličice tostiranog sezamovog ulja (2,00 kn)

Dobar prstohvat svježe mljevenog crnog papra (0,25 kn)

Dodatno:

Suncokretovo ulje za namastiti tavu (0,10 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Očistite pastrvu i isfiletirajte ju. Ako nikada prije niste filetirali ribu (ja nisam!), samo da znate kako sam ja pogledala ovaj video i sve mi je bilo jasno, te sam uspjela napraviti filete iz prvog pokušaja. Sve skupa mi je trebalo možda desetak minuta i nije uopće bilo teško. Jedino bez čega nikako nećete moći je dobar i jako oštri nož za filetiranje.

Filete ribe posušite kuhinjskim ručnikom i sa obje strane natrljajte sa soli i limun-papar mješavinom. Stavite na stranu. Operite i lagano posušite kuhinjskim ručnikom bok choi, pa raspolovite po dužini. Natrljajte bok choi sa kečapom, soja sosom, sezamovim uljem i paprom.

Gril tavu stavite da se ugrije na srednjoj vatri i lagano premažite suncokretovim uljem. Filete pastrve poslažite po tavi, tako da je koža okrenuta prema dolje. Kuhajte oko dvije do tri minute, pa nježno okrenite i još minutu kuhajte i drugu stranu. Maknite sve filete i držite na toplom dok izgrilate i bok choi. Bok choi poslažite na istu tavu, sa raspolovljenom stranom okrenutom prema dolje. Pecite oko 3-4 minute, preokrenite, pa drugu stranu pecite još minutu-dvije. Sve poslužite odmah dok je toplo.

Paleo Tabbouleh (vegan) / Paleo libanonska salata tabbouleh (veganska)

I’m gonna come clean right away and admit that I’ve never tasted actual Tabbouleh in my life. However, it’s been popping up lately wherever I look on the internet, and since tomatoes and cucumbers just appeared on the markets, I took it as a sign. Also, I decided to make this paleo and use sunflower seeds instead of traditional bulgur.

IMGP7438

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields 2 servings / 0.90 EUR per serving / 1.79 EUR for all)

1 small red onion (0.10 EUR)

1 large cucumber (0.27 EUR)

3 tomatoes (0.40 EUR)

Large handful of fresh parsley (0.27 EUR)

Small handful of fresh mint (0.13 EUR)

½ cup sunflower seeds (0.13 EUR)

Juice of 1 lemon (0.27 EUR)

4 tbsp olive oil (0.18 EUR)

Good pinch of salt (0.01 EUR)

Good pinch of freshly ground black pepper (0.03 EUR)

IMGP7435

IMGP7437

METHOD:

Peel the onion and wash and pat dry all the veggies and herbs. Cut the cucumber lengthwise, first in halves and then in quarters, then cut out and discard all the seeds. Finely chop up everything and then toss together with sunflowers seeds, lemon juice, olive oil, salt and pepper. This salad is best when fresh, but it will keep refrigerated in an airtight container for a day or two.

IMGP7436


Da odmah priznam, pravi libanonski tabbouleh nisam nikada imala prilike probati. Međutim, zadnjih dana svako malo naletim na neki tabbouleh recept na internetu, a pošto su se na placu upravo pojavile divne rajčice i krastavci, shvatila sam to kao znak. Također, odlučila sam ga napraviti paleo, pa sam umjesto bulgura koji se tradicionalno koristi u ovoj salati odlučila upotrijebiti suncokretove sjemenke.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 2 porcije / 6,67 kn po porciji / 13,33 kn za sve)

1 mali ljubičasti luk (0,75 kn)

1 veliki krastavac (2,00 kn)

3 rajčice (3,00 kn)

Veliki pregršt svježeg peršina (2,00 kn)

Malo svježe mente (1,00 kn)

½ šalice suncokretovih sjemenki (1,00 kn)

Sok od 1 limuna (2,00 kn)

4 žlice maslinovog ulja (1,32 kn)

Dobar prstohvat soli (0,01 kn)

Dobar prstohvat svježe mljevenog crnog papra (0,25 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Ogulite luk te operite i papirnatim ručnikom posušite svo povrće i zelenje. Krastavac po dužini raspolovite i onda raščetvorite, pa izrežite van i bacite sjemenke. Fino sve nasjeckajte i pomiješajte sa suncokretovim sjemenkama, limunovim sokom, maslinovim uljem, soli i paprom. Ova je salata najbolja kada je svježa, ali držati će u hermetički zatvorenoj posudi u hladnjaku dan ili dva.

Green Tomato and Roasted Horn Pepper Shakshuka (vegetarian) / Jaja u umaku od zelenih rajčica i pečenih paprika (vegetarijanska)

I started work again last week after my three week summer vacation. Needless to say, that’s always fun. The most challenging thing was to plug into the new routine. I miss my slow mornings the most, as I always take my time in the morning on my days off. To compensate for this and free up some more space in the afternoons, I bring you a super quick, yet delicious dinner recipe.

Green tomatoes give a really delicious and interesting kick, so I suggest using them while they are still available. I also had some roasted red horn peppers lying around and decided to throw in those. Of course, you can use fresh, but they’ll require a bit of cooking time, so I’d throw them in together with green tomatoes.

IMGP6692

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields 2 generous servings / 1.55 EUR per serving / 3.09 EUR for all)

4 tbsp olive oil (0.18 EUR)

1 large onion (0.10 EUR)

Good pinch of dried chili flakes (0.03 EUR)

4 medium green tomatoes (0.27 EUR)

4 garlic cloves (0.13 EUR)

2 roasted red horn peppers – or 1 fresh (0.27 EUR)

1 can of diced Roma tomatoes (0.67 EUR)

1 tsp dried basil (0.07 EUR)

2 tbsp dried parsley (0.13 EUR)

Good pinch of salt (0.01 EUR)

Good pinch of freshly ground black pepper (0.03 EUR)

4 eggs (0.80 EUR)

A chunk of feta cheese (0.40 EUR)

IMGP6702

IMGP6704

METHOD:

Wash, peel and finely dice all the veggies. Place a deeper skillet on high heat, add in olive oil and diced onion, then sauté for a few minutes until the onion starts browning slightly. Throw in dried chili flakes and stir for a few seconds, so the flavors release into the oil. Dump in diced green tomatoes, minced garlic and fresh horn pepper, if using. If, on the other hand, going with the roasted peppers, add them in together with Roma tomatoes, when green tomatoes are cooked through and most of the liquid has evaporated. After 5-10 minutes, throw in canned Roma tomatoes, basil, parsley, salt and pepper. Give a good stir, reduce heat to medium and cook for about 10 minutes, until sauce is thickened.

Make four small wells in the sauce with a spoon and break the eggs into the wells. Reduce heat to low, cover the skillet with a lid and cook covered for 7-10 minutes, until the egg whites are thoroughly cooked through, but the yolks are still runny. Resist the urge to open the lid too often so the steam doesn’t escape, as that’s what’s gonna cook the eggs. When eggs are done, gently break the whites into the sauce with a spatula, but leave the yolks intact. Crumble feta on top and serve Shakshuka with a nice hunk of crispy bread for dipping. We also like it over cooked rice.

Prošli sam tjedan ponovo krenula raditi nakon trotjednog ljetnog godišnjeg odmora. Naravno, takav povratak na posao je uvijek jedno divno iskustvo. Najteže od svega mi je palo ponovo se prištekati na novu rutinu, a najviše su mi falila spora jutra. Da nekako kompenziram i oslobodim mjesta poslije podne, donosim vam ovaj brzi, ali jako fini recept.

Zelene rajčice daju jedan jako ukusan i zanimljiv štih, pa predlažem da ih upotrijebite dok se još mogu naći za kupiti. Također, imala sam pri ruci i nešto pečenih paprika roga, pa sam odlučila i njih ubaciti. Naravno, možete ih zamijeniti sa svježima, samo će im trebati malo duže kuhanja, pa njih onda dodajte skupa sa zelenim rajčicama.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 2 izdašne porcije / 11,54 kn po porciji / 23,08 kn za sve)

4 žlice maslinovog ulja (1,32 kn)

1 veliki luk (0,75 kn)

Dobar prstovat sušenog chilija u pahuljicama (0,25 kn)

4 srednje zelene rajčice (2,00 kn)

4 češnja češnjaka (1,00 kn)

2 pečene crvene paprike roge – ili 1 svježa (2,00 kn)

1 konzerva sjeckanih pelata (5,00 kn)

1 žličica sušenog bosiljka (0,50 kn)

2 žlice sušenog peršina (1,00 kn)

Dobar prstohvat soli (0,01 kn)

Dobar prstohvat svježe mljevenog crnog papra (0,25 kn)

4 jaja (6,00 kn)

Komadić feta sira (3,00 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Operite, ogulite i fino nasjeckajte povrće. Stavite dublju tavu na jaku vatru, dodajte maslinovo ulje i sjeckani luk, pa dinstajte par minuta dok se luk ne počne lagano karamelizirati. Ubacite sušeni chili i par sekundi miješajte, da se arome otpuste u ulje. Ubacite sjeckane zelene rajčice, češnjak i svježu papriku, ako nju koristite. Ako se, s druge strane, odlučite na pečenu papriku, dodajte ju skupa sa pelatima, kada se zelene rajčice blago iskuhaju i većina tekućine je isparila. Nakon 5-10 minuta ubacite pelate, bosiljak, peršin, sol i papar. Dobro promiješajte, smanjite vatru na srednje jaku i kuhajte desetak minuta, dok se umak ne zgusne.

Žlicom napravite četiri udubljenja u umaku i unutra razbijte jaja. Smanjite vatru na nisku, poklopite tavu i kuhajte 7-10 minuta da se bjelanjci skroz skuhaju, ali žutanjci i dalje ostanu tekući. Nemojte stalno skidati poklopac da vam ne pobjegne sva para, obzirom kako će ona skuhati jaja. Kada su jaja gotova, bjelanjke špatulom lagano razbijte u umak, ali žutanjke ostavite cijele. Namrvite fetu po svemu i poslužite Shakshuku sa komadom finog hruskavog kruha za umakanje. Nama je također super i sa kuhanom rižom.
