Lentil and Potato Stew (vegan) / Varivo od leće i krumpira (vegansko)

Whenever I don’t know what to quickly whip up for lunch, 90% of the time it’s lentils with whatever else I have lying around the fridge. I probably eat lentils at least 2-3 times a week. But I’m totally okay with this, as they are super cheap, tasty and nutritious.

U 90% slučajeva kada nemam inspiracije što bi mogla na brzinu skuhati za ručak, napravim leću u kombinaciji sa onime što mi se već taj dan povlači po frižideru. Tako da leću vjerovatno jedem barem 2-3 puta tjedno. Ali to mi je i skroz super, jer je leća jeftina, fina i zasitna.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 4 porcije / 4,33 kn po porciji / 17,32 kn za sve)

2 žlice maslinovog ulja (0,66 kn)

Operite, ogulite i nasjeckajte svo povrće. Isperite leću u cjediljci pod mlazom vode. U velikom loncu, na jakoj vatri, dinstajte luk na ulju oko pet minuta, dok ne postane staklast. Ubacite nasjeckani češnjak i kratko promiješajte da zamiriši. Ubacite pelate i špatulom ih razlomite na manje komade. Kuhajte oko pet minuta, a onda dodajte i sve ostale sastojke. Dobro promiješajte i pustite da zavrije. Smanjite vatru i krčkajte oko 20 minuta, dok se leća i krumpiri do kraja ne skuhaju. Poslužite toplo.

Lentil and Potato Stew (vegan) / Varivo od leće i krumpira (vegansko)

Lentil and Mushroom Risotto (Vegetarian) / Rižoto od leće i gljiva (vegetarijanski)

This summer lentils seem to be my most favorite ingredient. They are super quick to cook, cheap, filling and tasty. I am sneaking them into every dish and everything appears to be suddenly improved by lentils. This dish is very quick to make and super tasty. You can also easily make it vegan by just swapping butter for coconut oil.

IMGP6617

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields 4 servings / 1.01 EUR per serving / 4.03 EUR for all)

2 tbsp olive oil (0.09 EUR)

1 large onion (0.10 EUR)

4 garlic cloves (0.13 EUR)

4 tbsp butter (0.53 EUR)

500 grams Portobello mushrooms (2.00 EUR)

1 cup green lentils (0.67 EUR)

1 cup rice (0.27 EUR)

1 tsp salt (0.01 EUR)

1 tsp freshly ground black pepper (0.07 EUR)

2 tbsp dried parsley (0.13 EUR)

1 bay leaf (0.03 EUR)

3 cups water (–)

IMGP6616

METHOD:

Peel the onion and garlic and finely dice them. Wash and thinly slice mushrooms. Pick through lentils, then rinse well in a colander, together with rice.

Add the onion to olive oil and saute until slightly translucent. Throw in garlic and butter and give a good stir. When butter melts, add in sliced mushrooms. You might want to do this in two or three smaller batches as the mushrooms cook down. After a few minutes dump in lentils, rice, salt, pepper, parsley and bay leaf. Cover with water, stir and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer with lid cracked open for 15-20 minutes, until lentils and rice are thoroughly cooked through. Stir occasionally and add in a splash of water if necessary.

This dish reheats great and will keep refrigerated for a few days, so you can prepare ahead and have your lunch ready to take to work.

Čini mi se kako mi je ovo ljeto leća postala najdraža namirnica, što je sasvim i razumljivo jer se brzo skuha, jeftina je, zasitna i fina. Počela sam leću ubacivati u skoro sva jela, a sa njom je i sve odmah nekako ukusnije. Ovaj je recept jako jednostavan i fin. Lako ga možete modificirati i u veganski, ako maslac zamijenite sa kokosovim uljem.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 4 porcije / 7,54 kn po porciji / 30,17 kn za sve)

2 žlice maslinovog ulja (0,66 kn)

1 veliki luk (0,75 kn)

4 češnja čenjaka (1,00 kn)

4 žlice maslaca (4,00 kn)

500 g šampinjona (15,00 kn)

1 šalica zelene leće (5,00 kn)

1 šalica riže (2,00 kn)

1 žličica soli (0,01 kn)

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

2 žlice sušenog peršina (1,00 kn)

1 lovorov list (0,25 kn)

3 šalice vode (–)

PRIPREMA:

Ogulite i sitno nasjeckajte luk i češnjak. Operite i narežite gljive na tanke listiće. Proberite leću, pa skupa sa rižom dobro isprerite pod tekućom vodom u cjediljci.

Bacite luk na maslinovo ulje i kratko prodinstajte dok ne postane staklast. Dodajte češnjak i maslac, pa dobro promiješajte. Kada se maslac rastopi, postepeno u dve ili tri manje ture dodajte gljive da se i one skuhaju. Nakon par minuta dodajte leću, rižu, sol, papar, peršin i lovorov list. Prelijte preko svega vodu, promiještajte i pustite da zavrije. Smanjite vatru i krčkajte uz povremeno miješanje sa odškrinutim poklopcem 15-20 minuta, dok se riža i leća do kraja ne skuhaju. Po potrebi dodajte još malo vode.

Ovo se jelo super podgrijava, a u hladnjaku će držati par dana, tako da slobodno možete skuhati malo više i imati ručak za ponijeti sa sobom na posao.

I’m in a super lazy phase when it comes to cooking these days so I’m looking into easy and no-fuss recipes that can be whipped up quickly. Dishes which I can make in big batches and reheat later as needed are currently my BFFs.

Jela koja mogu napraviti u velikim porcijama i kasnije podgrijati po potrebi su mi trenutno najbolji frendovi. Nemam pojma da li je to zbog vremena, užasno ubzranog tempa na poslu, ili jednostavno života, ali ljudi moji, spremna sam za godišnji (koji se neće desiti još mjesec dana, grrr D:).

Ovo je jako terapeutski ako ste se cijeloga dana na poslu bavili sa napornim ljudima. Pustite da se krčka 5-10 minuta, pa ubacite unutra mahune, leću, papriku, Gochujang, sol i vodu. Pustite da zavrije, smanjite vatru i krčkajte sa odškrinutim poklopcem oko 20 minuta, uz povremeno miješanje. Po potrebi dodajte još mrvicu vode.

Bean and Lentil Stew (vegan) / Varivo od graha i leće (vegansko)

I’ve been in a mood for a hearty bean stew for a while and decided to add in some lentils for a good dose of creaminess. This recipe yields a huge bulk, which is more than fine by me, because it means I have lunch sorted out for a while. While it does take some time for dried beans to cook, the actual work involved here is minimal, so it’s definitely worth to put in the extra effort to be more cost-effective.

IMGP6115

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields 8 servings / 0.66 EUR per serving / 5.30 EUR for all)

2 cups dried beans (2.00 EUR)

Pinch red pepper flakes (0.03 EUR)

6 cups water (–)

Bunch of fresh parsley (0.27 EUR)

IMGP6114

METHOD:

Pick through, wash and soak the beans in cold water the night before. The following day drain the beans, cover with fresh water and simmer until the beans are cooked through. Rinse once more, drain and set aside.

Wash, peel and chop up all the veggies. Rinse and drain lentils and set aside. Saute onion on oil in a large pot for a few minutes, on high heat, until softened and slightly translucent. Add in minced garlic, finely chopped chili peppers and diced carrots and cook briefly to get the flavours going. Dump in canned tomatoes and crush them with your spatula. Now add in the cooked beans, lentils, bay leaf, paprika, salt, pepper and red pepper flakes, cover with water and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for about 30 minutes, until thickened and the lentils are cooked through. Remove from heat, stir in chopped parsley and taste to adjust seasoning. This freezes and reheats great, so you have lunch situations sorted out for a while.

Već mi se neko vrijeme jede neko fino varivo od graha, a u ovo sam odlučila ubaciti i leću za ekstra kremastu teksturu. Ovaj recept daje ogromnu količinu, ali meni to sasvim odgovara jer onda imam riješen ručak za neko vrijeme. Usprkos tome što suhom grahu treba vremena da se skuha, stvaran posao je u tom dijelu minimalan. Tako da mislim da se definitivno isplati uložiti malo više truda i tako proći jeftinije.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 8 porcija / 4,96 kn po porciji / 39,64 kn za sve)

2 šalice suhog graha (15,00 kn)

2 žlice maslinovog ulja (0,66 kn)

2 velika luka (1,50 kn)

4 češnja češnjaka (1,00 kn)

2 čili papričice (3,00 kn)

4 velike mrkve (3,00 kn)

1 konzerva pelata (5,00 kn)

1 šalica crvene leće (7,50 kn)

1 lovorov list (0,10 kn)

1 žlica slatke crvene paprike (0,50 kn)

1 žličica soli (0,01 kn)

½ žličice svježe mljevenog crnog papra (0,12 kn)

Prstohvat sušenog čilija u pahuljicama (0,25 kn)

6 šalica vode (–)

Pregršt svježeg peršina (2,00 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Većer prije proberite i operite grah, te ga ostavite namočenog u hladnoj vodi. Sljedećeg dana ocijedite grah, pokrijte svježom vodom i stavite kuhati. Skuhani grah isperite, ocijedite i stavite na stranu.

Operite, ogulite i nasjeckajte svo povrće. Isperite leću i sstavite na stranu. U velikom loncu na jakoj vatri prodinstajte luk na ulju par minuta, dok ne bude staklast i mekan. Ubacite sjeckani češnjak, čili i mrkve, pa kratko prokuhajte da se aktiviraju arome. Dodajte pelate pa ih izgnječite špatulom. Sada u lonac ubacite kuhani grah, leću, lovorov list, slatku papriku, sol, papar, čili pahuljice i zalijte sve vodom. Pustite neka zavrije, a onda smanjite vatru i krčkajte oko 30 minuta, dok se varivo ne zgusne, a leća se ne skuha. Maknite s vatre, umiješajte sjeckani peršin, te kušajte i prilagodite začine. Ovo se super smrzava i podgrijava, tako da imate osiguran ručak za još neko vrijeme.

Bean and Lentil Stew (vegan) / Varivo od graha i leće (vegansko)

Simple Curried Lentils (including a vegan option) / Jednostavna leća sa curryjem (uključena i veganska opcija)

We’ve been having a period of Siberian-like freezing weather for quite a while and all I wanna do is eat comforting food. Of course, it has to be spicy too, to warm me up a little and uplift my spirits. Honestly, I’m still pretty lazy about cooking, as part of ongoing holiday recuperation, and try to keep things minimal. This lentil dish filled all of the above criteria and I liked it so much that I’ve already made it twice during the past week.

If you want to make this in vegan version, just be sure to substitute butter with coconut or olive oil and add vegetable stock to it instead of chicken.

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields 4 servings / 0.78 EUR per serving / 3.13 EUR for all)

2 tbsp butter (0.27 EUR)

2 large onions, diced (0.20 EUR)

6 garlic cloves, minced (0.20 EUR)

1 can of peeled tomatoes (0.67 EUR)

1 cup red lentils (1.00 EUR)

2 cups chicken stock (0.48 EUR)

1 tsp salt (0.01 EUR)

1 tbsp sweet Hungarian paprika (0.07 EUR)

1 tsp curry powder (0.07 EUR)

Pinch of chili flakes (0.03 EUR)

2 tbsp chopped fresh parsley (0.13 EUR)

imgp5898

METHOD:

Place pot with butter on high heat. As soon as the butter melts, add diced onion and saute for a few minutes until softened and slightly translucent. Add minced garlic, briefly stir and add in canned tomatoes. Crush the tomatoes using your spatula. Wash lentils in colander under running water, then add to the pot together with stock, salt, paprika, curry and chili flakes. Stir and bring to a rolling boil.

Once boiling, reduce heat and simmer for about 45 minutes, until thick and creamy. Be sure to stir occasionally, so the lentils wouldn’t stick to the bottom of the pot. Taste, adjust seasoning and serve sprinkled with fresh chopped parsley.

S obzirom na sibirske vremenske uvjete zadnjih dana, jede mi se samo neka utješna hrana. Naravno, to mora biti ljuto, da me malo ugrije i ojača mi duh. Iskreno, još uvijek sam malo lijena što se tiče kuhanja, a što je i dio oporavka od zimskih blagdana, pa se trudim stvari raditi minimalistički. Ovo jelo od leće ispunjava sve gornje stavke i toliko mi se svidjelo da sam ga kuhala već dva puta u zadnjih tjedan dana.

Ako želite ovo napraviti u veganskoj verziji, nema problema. Samo zamijenite maslac sa kokosovim ili maslinovim uljem, a umjesto pilećeg temeljca podlijte sa povrtnim.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 4 porcije / 5,85 kn po porciji / 23,38 kn za sve)

2 žlice maslaca (2,00 kn)

2 velika luka, sitno nasjeckana (1,50 kn)

6 češnjeva češnjaka, sitno nasjeckanih (1,50 kn)

1 konzerva pelata (5,00 kn)

1 šalica crvene leće (7,50 kn)

2 šalice pilećeg temeljca (3,62 kn)

1 žličica soli (0,01 kn)

1 žlica slatke crvene paprike (0,50 kn)

1 žličica currya u prahu (0,50 kn)

Prstohvat sušenog chilija u pahuljicama (0,25 kn)

2 žlice sjeckanog svježeg peršina (1,00 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Stavite lonac sa maslacem na jaku vatru. Čim se maslac otopi dodajte luk i dinstajte par minuta dok luk ne omekša i ne postane staklast. Dodajte sjeckani češnjak, kratko promiješajte, pa ubacite pelate i usitnite ih sa kuhačom. U cjedilu operite leću pod mlazom vode, te stavite u lonac skupa sa temeljcem, soli, paprikom, curryjem i chilijem. Dobro promiješajte i pustite da zavrije.

Kada sve zavrije, smanjite vatru i krčkajte oko 45 minuta, da leća zgusne i postane kremasta. Samo pazite da povremeno promiješate kako se leća ne bi zalijepila za dno lonca. Kušajte, prilagodite začine i poslužite posipano svježim sjeckanim peršinom.

Lentil and Spinach Magic Pot (vegan and gluten-free) / Čarobni lonac sa lećom i špinatom (veganski i bez glutena)

I don’t know if you’ve noticed already, but I’m a big fan of one pot dishes. They’re usually hearty, filling and require only a minimal clean up. Like many fantastic ideas, this recipe was also born out of nothing but sheer laziness. But don’t get discouraged by short ingredient list because the spinach and lentils definitely work some kind of magic when combined, as the end result is incredibly creamy and yummy.

Well, without further ado, let’s get down to business. I hope that all of you lazy folks out there will enjoy this dish as much as I did. 🙂

IMGP4729

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields 4 servings / 0.71 EUR per serving / 2.82 EUR for all)

2 tbsp olive oil (0.09 EUR)

1 large purple onion, thinly sliced (0.10 EUR)

3 garlic cloves, minces (0.09 EUR)

1 cup red lentils (0.80 EUR)

1 can diced tomatoes (0.53 EUR)

450 g bag frozen leaf spinach (1.07 EUR)

1 tbp dried parsley (0.07 EUR)

1 tsp sweet Hungarian paprika (0.03 EUR)

1/2 tsp salt (0.01 EUR)

1 tsp freshly cracked black pepper (0.03 EUR)

1 cup water (–)

IMGP4731

METHOD:

Put all ingredients in a pot, give a good stir and place on high heat. Reduce heat to low as soon as it reaches a rolling boil. Simmer with a lid cracked open for 20-30 minutes, until lentils are cooked through and the dish creams up, while stirring occasionally. If necessary, add a splash more of water. On the other hand, if it’s too watery, you can finish the cooking without the lid so extra liquid can evaporate. This generally depends on how much water is there in your frozen spinach.

Serve hot over potatoes or rice, or on its own with a slice of delicious bread for scooping.

Ne znam da li ste već primijetili da sam veliki fan jela koja se kuhaju u jednom loncu. Ona su obično izdašna, zasitna i zahtijevaju minimalno čišćenje. Kao mnoge fantastične ideje, ovaj recept je nastao iz ničeg drugog do čiste lijenosti. Ali nedajte se obeshrabriti kratkim popisom sastojaka, jer špinat i leća definitivno naprave neku čaroliju kada se spoje. Konačni je rezultat jako kremasti i fini.

Bez daljnjeg odgađanja, idemo na posao. Nadam se da će sve ljenguze uživati u ovom jelu koliko sam i ja. 🙂

SASTOJCI:

(Za 4 porcije / 5,27 kn po porciji / 21,07 kn za sve)

2 žlice maslinovog ulja (0,66 kn)

1 veliki ljubičasti luk, tanko narezan (0,75 kn)

3 češnja češnjaka, sitno nasjeckana (0,70 kn)

1 šalica crvene leće (6,00 kn)

1 konzerva nasjeckanih rajčica (4,00 kn)

1 vrećica od 450 g smrznutog špinata u listovima (8,00 kn)

1 žlica sušenog peršina (0,50 kn)

1 žličica slatke crvene paprike (0,25 kn)

½ žličice soli (0,01 kn)

1 žličica svježe mljevenog crnog papra (0,20 kn)

1 šalica vode (–)

 

PRIPREMA:

Stavite sve sastojke u lonac, dobro promiješajte i stavite na jaku vatru. Čim zavrije smanjite vatru. Lagano krčkajte uz povremeno miješanje sa odškrinutim poklopcem jedno 20-30 minuta, dok se leća skroz ne skuha i jelo ne postane kremasto. Po potrebi dodajte mrvicu vode. S druge strane, ako vam se čini prevodnjikavo, dovršite jelo odklopljeno kako bi višak tekućine mogao ispariti. Ovo uglavnom ovisi o tome koliko vode ima u smrznutom špinatu kojeg koristite.

 

Poslužite vruće preko krumpira ili riže, ili samo sa komadom finog kruha za umakanje.
