Goat Cheese Salty Fingers / Slani prstići sa kozjim sirom

I admit, I initially intended to make these taste more like pizza. However, strong goat cheese that I’ve used simply overpowered the other flavors. These turned out super delicious anyway and awesome for snacking. If you’re not a fan of strong cheeses, though, definitely pick a more tame option for overall milder flavor.

IMGP8382

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields about 20 fingers / 0.07 EUR per finger / 1.37 EUR for all)

For the dough:

1 and ½ cup all-purpose flour (0.10 EUR)

1 and ½ cup whole wheat flour (0.15 EUR)

1 tsp salt (0.01 EUR)

1 cup pork lard (0.20 EUR)

¼ cup cold water (–)

For the filling:

½ cup tomato puree (0.13 EUR)

1 tsp oregano (0.07 EUR)

½ tsp freshly ground black pepper (0.03 EUR)

½ cup shredded hard goat’s cheese (0.33 EUR)

Optional – for the topping:

1 egg (0.20 EUR)

4 tbsp sesame seeds (0.13 EUR)

Pinch of salt (0.01 EUR)

Additional:

Flour for sprinkling (0.01 EUR)

IMGP8379

IMGP8380

METHOD:

Make the dough by whisking together both flours and salt. Add in lard and a few tablespoons of cold water. Mix and keep adding water until you are able to form shabby dough. Flatten the dough into disk, tightly wrap into cling foil and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.

When ready to bake, preheat the oven to 180°C and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Roll the dough out on well-floured surface into a square. Spread tomato puree on top, then sprinkle with oregano, black pepper and shredded cheese. Fold the dough over in half to cover the filling, then cut into finger-sized strips. Brush each strip with whisked egg, then generously sprinkle with sesame seeds and a bit of salt. Flip the fingers over and repeat the sesame treatment on the other side as well.

Spread the fingers on prepared baking sheet and bake for 25-30 minutes, until crispy and golden-brown. Serve warm or at room temperature.

Priznajem da mi je inicijalna namjera bila da ovi snack prstići imaju više šmek po pizzi. Međutim, jaki kozji sir koji sam upotrijebila jednostavno je prevagnuo i zakamuflirao ostale arome. Neovisno o tome, meni su prstići bili i dalje super i ukusni. Ali ako niste ljubitelj jakog sira, upotrijebite neki sa pitomijom aromom za uravnoteženiji i blaži okus.

SASTOJCI:

(Za oko 20 prstića / 0,51 kn po prstiću / 10,27 kn za sve)

Za tijesto:

1 i ½ šalica glatkog brašna (0,75 kn)

1 i ½ šalica integralnog brašna (1,15 kn)

1 žličica soli (0,01 kn)

1 šalica svinjske masti (1,50 kn)

¼ šalice hladne vode (–)

Za nadjev:

½ šalice pasirane rajčice (1,00 kn)

1 žličica origana (0,50 kn)

½ žličice svježe mljevenog crnog papra (0,25 kn)

½ šalice ribanog tvrdog kozjeg sira (2,50 kn)

Po želji za posipanje:

1 jaje (1,50 kn)

4 žlice sezama (1,00 kn)

Prstohvat soli (0,01 kn)

Dodatno:

Brašno za posipanje (0,10 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Tijesto pripremite tako da u zdjeli prvo pomiješate oba brašna i sol. Dodajte mast i par žlica hladne vode. Miješajte i malo pomalo dodajte vodu sve dok vam se ne oformi labavo tijesto. Tijesto spljoštite u disk, čvrsto umotajte u prijanjajuću foliju i stavite u hladnjak na barem pola sata.

Kada ste spremni za pečenje, zagrijte pećnicu na 180°C. Protvan obložite papirom za pečenje. Tijesto razvaljajte na dobro pobrašnjenoj radnoj plohi u četverokut. Premažite tijesto pasiranom rajčicom, pa posipajte origanom, paprom i ribanim sirom. Preklopite tijesto na pola i režite u trakice veličine prsta. Svaku trakicu premažite razmućenim jajetom, pa obilno posipajte sezamom i malo posolite. Preokrenite i ponovite postupak i sa druge strane.

Prstiće raširite po pripremljenom protvanu i pecite 25-30 minuta, dok ne budu hrskavi i zlatno-smeđi. Poslužite tople ili na sobnoj temperaturi.

Super Quick Hummus Pesto Pasta (vegan) / Ultra brza tjestenina sa humusom i pesom (veganska)

We all need easy dishes like this one in our arsenal. Why, you ask? You have a work week from hell ahead of you? You are moving houses? You’re gonna have renovations at home? And you’re gonna order takeout, right? WRONG!!! You’re gonna take 10 minutes on the weekend to whip up this hummus and this pesto. Or buy a jar of pesto (vegan, if that’s your thing). Or buy both. And then you’re going to cook dinner in just a few minutes, when you come home exhausted. Or even meal prep this, as it tastes good cold and reheats quite well.

imgp8128

imgp8126

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields 4 generous servings / 0.39 EUR per serving / 1.56 EUR for all)

500 grams dried pasta of choice (1.00 EUR)

Good pinch of salt (0.01 EUR)

1 cup hummus (0.33 EUR)

3 tbsp pesto (0.20 EUR)

Good pinch of freshly ground black pepper (0.02 EUR)

imgp8127

METHOD:

Cook the pasta in salty water according to package instructions. Drain, but reserve a bit of pasta water for later. Add in hummus and pesto, then stir until well combined. If needed, add in a splash of reserved pasta water. Season generously with black pepper and serve immediately.

To take this dish up a notch, you can also throw in some fresh seasonal veggies. Or cook peas, broccoli, cauliflower or whatever else together with pasta. But it totally works on its own too and is super delicious.

Svima nam u životu trebaju ovakva jednostavna jela. Zašto pitate se? Jer imate tjedan iz pakla na poslu. Ili se selite. Ili doma preuređujete nastambu. I onda ćete naručiti dostavu, je li tako? NEĆETE!!! Već ćete za vikend izdvojiti desetak minuta i pripremiti si ovaj humus i ovaj pesto. Ili kupiti teglu pesta (veganskog, ako je to vaša brija). Ili kupiti oboje. Ali ćete onda, kada doma dođete umorni, moći skuhati večeru u samo desetak minuta. Ili si pripremiti ovo jelo unaprijed, jer je ukusno i hladno, a i dobro se podgijava.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 4 izdašne porcije / 2,92 kn po porciji / 11,66 kn za sve)

500 g tjestenine po izboru (7,50 kn)

Dobar prstohvat soli (0,01 kn)

1 šalica humusa (2,50 kn)

3 žlice pesta (1,50 kn)

Dobar prstohvat svježe mljevenog crnog papra (0,15 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Skuhajte tjesteninu u slanoj vodi prema uputama na pakiranju. Ocijedite, ali malo vode od kuhanja sačuvajte za kasnije. U tjesteninu umiješajte humus i pesto. Prema potrebi razrijedite sve sa vodom od kuhanja tjestenine. Dobro sve začinite paprom i odmah poslužite.

Ovo jednostavno jelo lako možete još podignuti tako da ubacite još i nešto svježeg sezonskog povrća. Ili skupa sa tjesteninom skuhajte i grašak, brokulu, cvjetaču ili štogod drugo vam se već svidi. Ali jelo funkcionira super i ovakvo kakvo je, te je veoma ukusno.

Oven-Fried Turkey Spring Rolls / Proljetne rolice sa puretinom iz pećnice

I’ve been very much in the mood for fried food lately. Spicy fried food, to be more precise. These spring rolls satiate all those cravings but are not laden with a ton of oil, since all the frying is actually done in the oven. They do require a bit more work, but you can easily prepare the meat and slice all your veggies a day ahead. When you break up the work like that, actual roll assembly is fairly easy.

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields 12 spring rolls / 0.23 EUR per roll / 2.78 EUR for all)

For the turkey:

1 cup ground turkey (1.00 EUR)

3 shiitake mushrooms (0.40 EUR)

Good pinch of salt (0.01 EUR)

Good pinch of freshly ground black pepper (0.02 EUR)

Good pinch of dried red pepper flakes (0.02 EUR)

1 tsp soy sauce (0.07 EUR)

For the filling:

½ cup shredded carrots (0.07 EUR)

½ cup shredded cabbage (0.07 EUR)

½ cup thinly sliced spring onions (0.20 EUR)

For the rolls:

3 sheets of phyllo pastry (0.40 EUR)

¼ cup milk (0.07 EUR)

1 tbsp sunflower seed oil (0.01 EUR)

For the spicy dipping sauce:

1 tsp Gochujang – Korean chili paste (0.07 EUR)

1 tbsp soy sauce (0.07 EUR)

1 tbsp honey (0.13 EUR)

1 tsp apple cider vinegar (0.03 EUR)

1 tsp toasted sesame oil (0.13 EUR)

2 tbsp warm water (–)

IMGP8300

IMGP8301

METHOD:

Put a skillet to medium high-heat. Add in the oil and turkey. Tear the mushrooms into small pieces and throw them in with the meat. Season everything with salt, pepper, red pepper flakes and soy sauce. Cook for 5-10 minutes, until the meat is done. In a bowl mix together the cooked turkey with shredded carrots, cabbage and spring onions.

Preheat the oven to 180°C. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Cut each phyllo sheet into four square pieces. Whisk together milk and oil to emulsify, then brush each phyllo square with this mixture. Add about a tablespoon of the prepared filling to each piece of phyllo, wrap up and arrange on prepared baking tray. Repeat until all the phyllo and filling are used up. Lightly brush the rolls with remaining milk mixture, then bake for about 20 minutes, until crispy and nicely golden-brown.

While the rolls are baking, prepare the spicy sauce by whisking all of the ingredients in a small bowl until everything is well incorporated. Serve the baked rolls immediately with the prepared dipping sauce on the side.

U zadnje sam vrijeme baš nekako raspoložena za prženu hranu, i to ljutu prženu hranu. Ove proljetne rolice ispunjavaju te zahtjeve, a opet nisu zagušene sa tonom masnoće pošto se peku u pećnici. Istina, sa njima ima nešto više posla, ali meso možete pripremiti i dan prije, kao i nasjeckati svo povrće. Kada sve razlomite na takve manje operacije, samo slaganje rolica je čas posla.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 12 proljetnih rolica / 1,73 kn po rolici / 20,71 za sve)

Za puretinu:

1 žlica suncokretovog ulja (0,10 kn)

3 shiitake gljive (3,00 kn)

Dobar prstohvat soli (0,01 kn)

Dobar prstohvat svježe mljevenog crnog papra (0,15 kn)

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

1 žlica soja sosa (0,50 kn)

Za nadjev:

½ šalice ribane mrkve (0,50 kn)

½ šalice ribanog kupusa (0,50 kn)

½ šalice tanko narezanog mladog luka (1,50 kn)

Za rolice:

3 lista kora za zavijače (3,00 kn)

¼ šalice mlijeka (0,50 kn)

1 žlica suncokretovog ulja (0,10 kn)

Za pikantni umak:

1 žličica Gochujanga – korejske čili paste (0,50 kn)

1 žličica jabučnog octa (0,20 kn)

1 žličica tostiranog sezamovog ulja (1,00 kn)

2 žlice tople vode (–)

PRIPREMA:

Tavicu stavite na srednje-jaku vatru. Dodajte ulje i puretinu. Gljive natrgajte na male komadiće pa i njih ubacite s mesom. Sve dobro začinite sa solju, paprom, čilijem i soja sosom. Kuhajte 10-15 minuta, dok meso ne bude gotovo. U zdjeli skupa pomiješajte puretinu sa ribanom mrkvom, kupusom i sjeckanim mladim lukom.

Pećnicu zagrijte na 180°C. Protvan obložite papirom za pečenje. Svaku koru za zavijaču narežite na četiri kvadrata. Razmutite mlijeko sa uljem da dobijete emulziju, pa svaki kvadrat tijesta premažite sa mješavinom mlijeka i ulja. Dodajte oko žlicu pripremljenog nadjeva, pa zamotajte u rolicu i stavite na pripremljeni protvan. Ponavljajte postupak dok ne potrošite svo tijesto i nadjev. Na kraju sve rolice lagano premažite mješavinom mlijeka i ulja, te pecite 20 minuta, dok rolice ne budu hrskave i zlatno smeđe.

Dok se rolice peku, pripremite umak. U maloj zdjelici pomiješajte sve sastojke dok ne dobijete jednoličnu i glatku smjesu. Pečene rolice poslužite vruće sa pikantnim umakom kojega ste pripremili.

These buns come together super quickly so you can whip them up in no time as a breakfast or a snack. You can also prepare the dough in advance and refrigerate or freeze it for later. I decided to use pork lard for the fats, but feel free to substitute this with softened butter, if lard is not your thing.

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields 16 buns / 0.17 EUR per bun / 2.64 EUR for all)

METHOD:

Preheat the oven to 180°C. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside. In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, lard, cheese, buttermilk, salt, pepper, garlic powder and sugar until everything is creamy and fully incorporated. Add in flours, flax seeds, baking powder and baking soda. Stir until the dough starts coming together, then dump everything on a clean work surface and knead for about five minutes. Divide the dough into four parts and flatten each part into a separate disk. At this point you can wrap the discs tightly with cling foil and refrigerate for up to two days or freeze for later on.

Divide the dough discs you wanna bake immediately into fours, then shape into balls and lightly flatten on a prepared baking tray. Space the dough balls out a bit, as they will spread while they bake.

If you wanna add some toppings, brush the buns with a whisked egg and sprinkle generously with sesame seeds, cumin, black pepper and salt. Bake for 25 minutes, until puffy and golden. Allow to rest for about 5-10 minutes, then serve.

Ova peciva su odlična jer vam treba jako malo vremena za pripremu, pa ih stoga možete brzo smutiti za doručak ili snack. Tijesto se također može spremiti unaprijed i čuvati u hladnjaku ili zamrzivaču. Ja sam za masnoću upotrijebila svinjsku mast, ali vi ju slobodno zamijenite omekšanim maslacem ako niste fan.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 16 peciva / 1,22 kn po pecivu / 19,52 za sve)

Za tijesto:

2 jaja (3,00 kn)

2 žlice svinjske masti (0,20 kn)

1 šalica svježeg sira (6,00 kn)

1 šalica kiselog mlijeka (3,00 kn)

1 i ½ žličica soli (0,02 kn)

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

1 žličica češnjaka u prahu (0,50 kn)

1 žlica šećera (0,05 kn)

1 i ½ šalica glatkog brašna (0,75 kn)

1 i ½ šalica integralnog brašna (1,13 kn)

3 žlice mljevenih sjemenki lana (0,75 kn)

1 žličica praška za pecivo (0,10 kn)

½ žličice sode bikarbone (0,01 kn)

Po želji za posipanje:

1 jaje (1,50 kn)

2 žlice sezama (0,50 kn)

2 žličice kima (1,00 kn)

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

½ žličice soli (0,01 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Zagrijte pećnicu na 180°C. Protvan obložite papirom za pečenje i stavite na stranu. U velikoj zdjeli pomiješajte skupa jaja, mast, sir, kiselo mlijeko, sol, papar, češnjak i šećer, dok sve ne bude glatko i kremasto. Dodajte oba brašna, lan, prašak za pecivo i sodu bikarbonu. Miješajte dok se tijesto ne formira, pa sve iskrenite na čistu radnu plohu i mijesite pet minuta. Tijesto podijelite na četiri jednaka dijela pa svaki dio spljoštite u zaseban disk. Sada možete svaki od diskova čvrsto umotati u prijanjajuću foliju i spremiti u hladnjak, do dva dana unaprijed, ili pak zamrznuti za kasnije.

Diskove koje mislite odmah peći razdijelite na još po četiri dijela, pa svaki komad formirajte u lopticu i lagano spljoštite na pripremljenom protvanu. Peciva malo razmaknite jer će se napuhnuti kako se budu pekla.

Ako peciva želite još i posipati, lagano ih premažite razmućenim jajetom i po njima posipajte sezam, kim, papar i sol. Pecite 25 minuta, dok peciva ne budu pufasta i zlatna. Ostavite da odmore 5-10 minuta pa poslužite.

Pork Crisps and Farmer’s Cheese Scones / Pogačice sa čvarcima i svježim sirom

My parents me gave a bunch of pork crisps which, honestly, weren’t that great to munch on. So, instead of throwing them out, I decided to bake them into scones. These scones turned out super flakey and delicious and were really easy to make, so I definitely suggest you try them out.

imgp8137

imgp8141

imgp8125

imgp8135

METHOD:

Throw the pork crisps into a food processor and pulse into a paste. Add in lard, eggs, cheese and buttermilk, then pulse until combined.

In a large bowl, whisk together flours, baking powder, salt and pepper. Add in the liquid ingredients, then stir everything together until a shabby dough forms. Dump everything on a clean work surface, then knead briefly. Don’t work the dough too much, just until everything comes together. Divide the dough into two, shape into discs, then wrap each disc tightly into cling foil and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes and up to two days in advance.

When ready to bake, preheat the oven to 180°C. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, then set aside. Roll the dough out between two sheets of parchment paper and cut into scones. Optionally, brush each scone with whisked egg and sprinkle with toppings. Spread the scones on a prepared baking sheet and bake for 20-30 minutes, until deep golden brown. Serve warm.

You can reheat these again in a microwave or in the oven. The scones will keep tightly wrapped and refrigerated for up to 3-4 days.

Moji su mi mama i tata dali nešto čvaraka, koji iskreno na žalost baš i nisu bili najfiniji. Umjesto da ih bacim, odlučila sam probati čvarke iskoristiti za čvarkuše. Drago mi je da sam tako napravila, jer su peciva ispala baš fina i hrskava, a još su uz to bila i jako jednostavna za pripremiti.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 20 čvarkuša / 1,69 kn po čvarkuši / 33,82 za sve)

Za tijesto:

2 šalice čvaraka (15,00 kn)

2 žlice svinjske masti (0,20 kn)

2 jaja (3,00 kn)

1 šalica svježeg sira (6,00 kn)

1 šalica kiselog mlijeka (3,00 kn)

2 šalice glatkog brašna (1,00 kn)

2 šalice integralnog brašna (1,50 kn)

1 žličica praška za pecivo (0,10 kn)

1 žličica soli (0,01 kn)

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

Po želji za posipanje:

1 jaje (1,50 kn)

2 žlice sezama (0,50 kn)

2 žličice kima (1,00 kn)

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

½ žličice soli (0,01 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Čvarke ubacite u multipraktik i propulsirajte u pastu. Dodajte mast, jaja, sir i kiselo mlijeko, pa pulsirajte dok se sve ne sjedini.

U velikoj zdjeli pomiješajte skupa oba brašna , prašak za pecivo, sol i papar. Dodajte unutra tekuće sastojke i miješajte dok ne dobijete labavo tijesto. Sve iskrenite na čistu radnu plohu, pa kratko mijesite. Nemojte previše mijesiti tijesto, već samo onoliko koliko treba da bi se sve sjedinilo. Podijelite tijesto na dva dijela, pa svaki dio oblikujte u zaseban disk te ga čvrsto umotajte u prozirnu foliju. Stavite u hladnjak na barem 30 minuta, a do dva dana unaprijed.

Kada ste spremni za pečenje zagrijte pećnicu na 180°C. Protvan obložite papirom za pečenje i stavite na stranu. Tijesto razvaljajte između dva lista papira za pečenje te ga režite u pogačice. Po želji pogačice premažite razmućenim jajetom i posipajte ostalim dodatcima. Pogačice raširite po pripremljenom protvanu i pecite 20-30 minuta, dok ne budu zlatno-smeđe. Poslužite toplo.

Čvarkuše možete bez problema podgrijati u mikrovalnoj ili u pećnici, a držati će dobro zamotane u hladnjaku barem 3-4 dana.

METHOD:

Preheat the oven to 180°C. Grease a baking dish or a loaf pan with butter and set aside. Cut the bread into small pieces and scatter in a prepared pan. In a bowl, whisk together eggs, salt, vanilla sugar, crème fraiche and milk. Stir in melted butter. Pour this mixture over the bread, making sure to coat the majority of pieces. Now stir the bread well, so that all chunks get soaked. I find that the easiest way is just to get in there with my hands. That way I can also squish the bread around a bit.

Sprinkle the top of bread with a tablespoon of plain white sugar and bake for about 40 minutes, until slightly puffed and crispy on top. Serve with a generous dusting of caster sugar. This will also be great with some fresh berries, jam, chocolate spread, honey and any other sweet paraphernalia you might enjoy.

Imate doma starog kruha, a jede vam se nešto slatko za doručak, brunch, snack ili kao brzi desert? Ovaj recept je onda baš za vas! Trebate potrošiti oko 5 minuta, te je to ujedno i odličan način za iskoristiti razne ostatke koji vam se možda povlače po doma. Tako da se nemojte ustručavati ovdje dodati i neke orašaste plodove, sjemenke ili voće.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 4 porcije / 4,44 kn po porciji / 17,76 kn za sve)

Za pohani kruh:

6 debelih kriški starog bijelog kruha (3,00 kn)

2 jaja (3,00 kn)

Prstohvat soli (0,01 kn)

2 žlice vanili šećera (1,00 kn)

2 žlice milerama (2,00 kn)

2 šalice mlijeka (6,00 kn)

2 žlice maslaca, rastopljene (2,00 kn)

1 žlica običnog bijelog šećera (0,05 kn)

Dodatno:

Maslac za namastiti protvan (0,50 kn)

Šećer u prahu za posluživanje (0,20 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Zagrijte pećnicu na 180°C. Namastite običan protvan ili onaj za kruh i stavite na stranu. Kruh narežite na komadiće veličine zalogaja i raštrkajte po pripremljenom protvanu. U zdjelici razmutite jaja, sol, vanili šećer, mileram i mlijeko. Umiješajte u to rastopljeni maslac. Prelijte tu smjesu preko kruha tako da većina komadića bude pokrivena. Dobro promiješajte kruh da se sve fino natopi, a meni je najjednostavnije to napraviti rukama, pa onda još sve i malo izgnječiti.

Po kruhu posipajte još žlicu običnog šećera, pa pecite oko 40 minuta, dok sve ne nabubri i ne zahrska se. Poslužite posipano sa šećerom u prahu. Ovo bi također bilo super sa nekim svježim bobicama, pekmezom, Nutellom, medom ili nekim drugim slatkim dodatkom po vašem ukusu.
