Lentil and Corn Stew (vegan) / Varivo od leće i kukuruza (vegansko)

By now even the birds in the trees know that whenever I lack time and inspiration for cooking, I turn to good old lentils. There are always some lentils kicking around our pantry and with just a few humble staples it enables us to come with quick, cheap and really satisfying meals.

Just a small note, though. The stew itself is vegan, but I opted to top it with a bit of shredded cheese. Naturally, you can skip the topping altogether or use a vegan substitute.

Throw in minced garlic, garlic powder, bay leaf, Hungarian and smoked paprika, chili flakes and salt, stir and cook for a minute, so the flavors can bloom. Add in red pepper paste (ajvar), diced tomatoes, water, parsley and lentils. Stir well and bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer with a lid cracked open for 30 minutes. If needed add a splash more of water and stir occasionally. Fold in frozen corn and cook for another 10-15 minutes, until the corn is cooked through.

Do sada već i vrapci na grani znaju da kada mi za kuhanje usfali vremena i inspiracije, okrenem se dobroj staroj leći. Pošto nam je leća već standardni dio inventara u špajzi, sa još samo par skromnih sastojaka možemo spraviti brza, jeftina i ukusna jela.

I još mala napomena. Samo je varivo vegansko, ali sam ga ja servirala posipanog sa malo ribanog sira. Naravno, vi slobodno to izostavite, ili upotrijebite vegansku zamjenu.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 6 porcija / 5,34 kn po porciji / 32,06kn za sve)

Za varivo:

2 žlice suncokretovog ulja (0,20 kn)

1 veliki luk (0,75 kn)

6 češnjeva češnjaka (1,50 kn)

1 žličica češnjaka u prahu (0,50 kn)

1 lovorov list (0,10 kn)

1 žlica slatke paprike (0,50 kn)

1 žličica dimljene paprike (0,50 kn)

1 žličica sušenog čilija u pahuljicama (0,50 kn)

1 žličica soli (0,01 kn)

1 šalica ajvara (5,00 kn)

1 konzerva sjeckanih pelata (5,00 kn)

½ šalice vode (–)

2 žlice sušenog peršina (1,00 kn)

1 šalica zelene leće (4,50 kn)

Za posluživanje:

6 šalica kuhane riže (4,50 kn)

½ šalice ribanog sira (2,50 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Ogulite i fino nasjeckajte luk i češnjak. Isperite leću u cjediljci pod tekućom vodom i stavite na stranu. U veliki lonac dodajte ulje, pa na jakoj vatri kratko prodinstajte luk, dok ne bude staklast. Ubacite svježi sjeckani češnjak, češnjak u prahu, lovor, slatku i dimljenu papriku, čili i sol, promiješajte te kuhajte samo minutu da začini zamiriše. Dodajte ajvar, pelate, vodu, peršin i leću, dobro promiješajte i pustite da zavrije. Smanjite vatru te krčkajte 30 minuta sa odškrinutim poklopcem. Povremeno promiješajte, a po potrebi dodajte mrvicu vode. Umiješajte smrznuti kukuruz, pa kuhajte još 10-15 minuta, dok kukuruz ne bude gotov.

Poslužite toplo sa kuhanom rižom i posipano sa malo ribanog sira ili sa veganskom alternativom.

Spicy Lentil and Tomato Stew (Vegan) / Pikantno varivo od leće i rajčice (vegansko)

This lentil stew is so simple and delicious that it became my go-to emergency comfort food. Sure, it takes a bit to simmer down to perfection, but the actual work you need to put in comes down to chopping garlic and onion. If you’re in a hurry you can definitely take it off the stove a bit earlier, but longer simmer means deeper and better flavor, so I’m not exactly sure one should make such sacrifices lightly.

IMGP7083

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields 4 servings / 0.91 EUR per serving / 3.36 EUR for all)

4 tbsp olive oil (0.18 EUR)

2 onions (0.20 EUR)

2 bay leaves (0.03 EUR)

1 tbsp dried basil (0.13 EUR)

1 tbsp sweet Hungarian paprika (0.07 EUR)

1 tsp smoked paprika (0.07 EUR)

1 tsp dried chili flakes (0.07 EUR)

1 tsp garlic powder (0.07 EUR)

1 tsp salt (0.01 EUR)

1 box tomato puree (0.47 EUR)

1 can diced tomatoes (0.67 EUR)

2 cups red lentils (1.33 EUR)

2 tbsp dried parsley (0.13 EUR)

2 cups water (–)

IMGP7081

METHOD:

Finely chop onion and garlic and rinse lentils in a colander under running water. Add oil to a big pot on high heat and saute onion for a few minutes, until slightly translucent. Dump in garlic, bay leaves, basil, Hungarian and smoked paprika, chili flakes, garlic powder and salt and stir for about a minute, just until the flavors from spices bloom. Now add tomato puree, diced tomatoes, lentils and parsley, cover with water, give a good stir and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and cook with a lid cracked open for about 45 minutes, while stirring occasionally. Serve warm or save for later, as this dish reheats wonderfully.

Ovo varivo od leće je jako jednostavno i vrlo ukusno, tako da ga veoma često kuham kada sam u stisci s vremenom, a jede mi se nešto zasitno i fino. Istina, možda treba malo više vremena da se iskrčka u savršenstvo, ali jedini posao koji imate je nasjeckati luk i češnjak. Ako vam se žuri možete sve ubrzati i varivo skinuti sa štednjaka i prije, ali što se dulje krčka to će okus biti dublji i bolji, pa takve žrtve ne treba olako raditi.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 4 porcije / 6,75 kn po porciji / 27,03 kn za sve)

4 žlice maslinovog ulja (1,32 kn)

2 luka (1,50 kn)

6 češnjeva češnjaka (1,50 kn)

2 lovorova lista (0,20 kn)

1 žlica sušenog bosiljka (1,00 kn)

1 žlica slatke crvene paprike (0,50 kn)

1 žličica dimljene paprike (0,50 kn)

1 žličica sušenog čilija u pahuljicama (0,50 kn)

1 žličica češnjaka u prahu (0,50 kn)

1 žličica soli (0,01 kn)

1 tetrapak pasirane rajčice (3,50 kn)

1 konzerva sjeckane rajčice (5,00 kn)

2 šalice crvene leće (10,00 kn)

2 žlice sušenog peršina (1,00 kn)

2 šalice vode (–)

PRIPREMA:

Fino nasjeckajte luk i češnjak, a leću isperite u cjediljci pod tekućom vodom. Ulje stavite u veći lonac na jaku vatru, pa par minuta dinstajte luk dok ne postane staklast. Dodajte češnjak, lovor, bosiljak, slatku i dimljenu papriku, čili, češnjak u prahu i sol, pa sve promiješajte na minutu dok začini ne zamiriše. Sada dodajte pasiranu i sjeckanu rajčicu, leću, peršin i vodu, dobro promiješajte i pustite da zavrije. Smanjite vatru pa uz povremeno miješanje krčkajte sa odškrinutim poklopcem oko 45 minuta. Poslužite odmah ili spremite za kasnije, jer se ovo jelo super podgrijava.

Jako dugo nisam kuhala nikakav curry, a kada sam naletila na kokosovo vrhnje i karfijol na sniženju, odma sam se osjetila nekako nadahnutom da skuham veliki lonac toplog, mirisnog i kremastog curryja.

Ubacite češnjak, čili papričice, curry, papriku i sušene čili pahuljice, promiješajte i kuhajte minutu, da se u začinima probude arome. Dodajte i mrkvu, promiješajte i kratko kuhajte da se lagano karamelizira. Ubacite pelate i izgnječite ih špatulom.

Sada nadodajte kokosovo vrhnje, leću, vodu i sol te sve dobro promiješajte. Pustite da zavrije, smanjite vatru i krčkajte 15 minuta sa odškrinutim poklopcem. Za kraj bacite u lonac cvjetaču i grašak, pa nastavite kuhati još 5-10 minuta dok se grašak ne skuha do kraja, a cvjetača ne ostane još malo hrskava. Poslužite toplo preko kuhane riže.

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.

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.

Sada umiješajte leću, kikiriki maslac, vodu, sol i papar i pustite da se krčka desetak minuta, uz povremeno miješanje. Kušajte i prilagodite začine te poslužite preko kuhane riže. Ovo se super podgrijava, tako da znate što vam je činiti sa ostacima.
