Creamy Kale and Pea Soup (vegan) / Krem juha od kelja i graška (vegansko)

There’s also a tiny bit of frozen cauliflower in there. But the post title would have been too big to chew on. See, I had a tiny bit of frozen cauliflower left in the freezer, so into the soup it all went. I don’t really think it did much for the flavor, but since the cauli is also a part of the soup I’ll list it with the rest of the ingredients.

Wash, peel and finely dice all of the veggies. Place deep pot on high heat and add in oil, onion and garlic. Saute for a few minutes, until softened and slightly translucent. Add in salt, black pepper, red pepper flakes, garlic powder, curry, basil and bay leaf. Give a good stir and cook for just a minute, so the spices become fragrant. Dump in parsley, kale, peas, cauliflower and water. Bring to a rolling boil, reduce heat and cook with a lid cracked open for about 15-20 minutes, until everything is cooked through and softened.

Remove the soup from heat and pulse with an immersion blender until smooth and creamy. Serve warm. This soup freezes and reheats very well, so you can make a big batch and keep on hand for emergencies.

U ovoj juhici ima također i mrvica cvjetače. No onda bi naslov bio malo prevelik za prožvakati. Ali pošto sam imala malo smrznute cvjetače u frizeru, naravno da sam i nju strpala u juhu. Mislim da ona nije značajno utjecala na sam okus, no pošto je dio juhe, ipak je navedena u receptu sa svim ostalim sastojcima.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 6 porcija / 2,22 kn po porciji / 13,31 kn za sve)

2 žlice suncokretovog ulja (0,20 kn)

1 veliki luk (0,75 kn)

6 češnjeva češnjaka (1,50 kn)

1 žličica soli (0,01 kn)

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

Dobar prstohvatsušenog čilija u listićima (0,15 kn)

1 žličica češnjaka u prahu (0,50 kn)

1 žličicacurry praha (0,50 kn)

1 žličica sušenog bosiljka (0,50 kn)

1 lovorov list (0,20 kn)

1 žlica sušenog peršina (0,50 kn)

½ velike glavice kelja (3,00 kn)

2 šalice smrznutog graška (3,00 kn)

1 šalica smrznute cvjetače (2,00 kn)

6 šalica vode (–)

PRIPREMA:

Operite, ogulite i nasjeckajte svo povrće. Stavite veliki lonac na jaku vatru i dodajte ulje, luk i češnjak. Dinstajte nekoliko minuta da sve omekša i postane staklasto. Ubacite sol, papar, čili, češnjak u prahu, curry, bosiljak i lovor. Dobro promiješajte i pustite minutu samo da začini zamiriše. Sada dodajte i peršin, kelj, grašak, cvjetaču i vodu. Pustite da zavrije, smanjite vatru, te kuhajte sa odškrinutim poklopcem 15-20 minuta, dok se svo povrće ne skuha do kraja i ne omekša.

Maknite juhu s vatre te ju usitnite štapnim mikserom da bude glatka i kremasta. Poslužite toplo. Ova se juha super smrzava i podgrijava, pa možete bez problema napraviti veću količinu i imati pri ruci za krizne trenutke.

Mushroom and Goat Cheese Brown Rice Risotto (vegetarian) / Rižoto od smeđe riže, gljiva i kozjeg sira (vegetarijanski)

I have a confession to make. I never cook risotto the right way, which involves infinite stirring and adding the hot, yet not quite boiling, liquid in bit by bit. Yes, I am aware that the Italian people, gourmets, proper chefs and most foodies are rolling their eyes right now in severe disapproval. However, I am lazy and value my own comfort and time more than any food related rules, especially those which I do not fully understand.

If you are okay with the above, keep reading. If, on the other hand, you find me calling the dish below a risotto thoroughly offensive, I really suggest you stop paying attention right now, because it will only get worse from this point on.

IMGP8359

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields 4 generous servings / 1.13 EUR per serving / 4.53 EUR for all)

1 tsp sunflower seed oil (0.01 EUR)

1 onion (0.10 EUR)

2 tbsp butter (0.27 EUR)

500 grams Portobello mushrooms (2.00 EUR)

Good pinch of salt (0.01 EUR)

Good pinch of freshly ground black pepper (0.02 EUR)

2 cups brown rice (0.80 EUR)

4 cups water (–)

1 cup cooking cream (0.66 EUR)

1 cup shredded mature goat cheese (0.66 EUR)

IMGP8363

METHOD:

Peel and finely dice the onion. Clean and thinly slice the mushrooms. Add the onion and oil to a pot on high heat and saute for a few minutes, until slightly translucent. Throw in butter, mushrooms, salt and pepper. Give a good stir and cook until the mushrooms release their liquid. Add in rice and water, give a good stir and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and cook covered for about 40 minutes, until the rice is thoroughly cooked through. Stir occasionally and add in a splash more of water, if needed.

Once the rice is done, stir in cooking cream and shredded cheese. If you are not a fan of goat cheese, you can easily swap it for any other hard cheese like Parmigiano-Reggiano or Grana Padano. Turn off heat, taste and adjust seasonings, then cover and allow it to sit undisturbed for 5-10 minutes. Serve warm. This also reheats great, which can only mean meal prep!

Moram vam nešto priznati. Nikad ne kuham rižoto na ispravan način – onaj koji uključuje beskonačno miješanje i polagano dodavanje vruće, ali ne baš kipuće, tekućine. Da, da, svjesna sam činjenice da svi Talijani, gurmani, pravi kuhari i fudiji sada kolutaju očima u potpunom neodobravanju. Međutim, ja sam lijena i cijenim svoje vrijeme i ugodu puno više od nekih pravila vezanih uz hranu, a posebice onih koje baš do kraja i ne razumijem.

Ako sa time nemate nekih problema, samo nastavite čitati. S druge strane, ako je moje proglašenje jela u nastavku rižotom za vas u najmanju ruku uvredljivo, bolje da se sada zaustavite jer će stvari nakon uvoda biti samo još gore.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 4 izdašne porcije / 8,50 kn po porciji / 34,01 kn za sve)

1 žlica suncokretovog ulja (0,10 kn)

1 luk (0,75 kn)

2 žlice maslaca (2,00 kn)

500 g šampinjona (15,00 kn)

Dobar prstohvat soli (0,01 kn)

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

2 šalice smeđe riže (6,00 kn)

4 šalice vode (–)

1 šalica vrhnja za kuhanje (5,00 kn)

1 šalica ribanog tvrdog kozjeg sira (5,00 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Ogulite i fino nasjeckajte luk. Gljive očistite i narežite na tanke listiće. Luk i ulje stavite u lonac na jakoj vatri pa dinstajte par minuta dok luk ne bude staklast. Dodajte maslac, gljive, sol i papar. Dobro promiješajte pa ostavite da gljive puste tekućinu. Sada ubacite rižu i vodu, dobro promiješajte, te kuhajte poklopljeno 40-tak minuta, dok riža ne bude gotova. Povremeno promiješajte, a po potrebi dodajte još malo vode.

Kada je riža kuhana, umiješajte vrhnje za kuhanje i ribani sir. Ako niste fan kozjeg sira, slobodno upotrijebite parmezan, Grana Padano ili neki slični tvrdi sir. Maknite rižoto s vatre, kušajte i prilagodite začine, te poklopite i ostavite da miruje 5-10 minuta. Poslužite toplo. Ovaj rižoto se također i super podgrijava, pa ga možete spremiti unaprijed i imati gotov ručak za užurbani tjedan.

Bean, Quinoa, Lentil and Sausage Stew / Varivo od graha, kvinoje i leće sa kobasicama

I had various leftovers at home and decided to whip up a huge pot of stew to feed us in the upcoming week. So this is an odd, yet delicious mix of things like quinoa and bacon, which in many peoples’ minds maybe doesn’t fit together at all. But I’m happy to report that this marriage was a delicious and a happy one, though. Naturally, as always, you do you and adapt where you see fit, following the directions where your fridge and pantry stocks nudge you.

Wash, peel and finely dice all the veggies. Cut the sausages into coins and roughly chop the bacon. Wash quinoa and lentils in a fine mesh colander under running water. Add the oil to a big pot and saute onion on high heat for a few minutes, until slightly translucent. Add in fresh garlic, carrots and horn pepper. Cook briefly, so that the veggies start to caramelize, before adding in the sausages and bacon. Give a good stir and let it cook for about five minutes.

Add in diced tomatoes, lentils, quinoa, beans, parsley, bay leaf, paprika, garlic powder, chili, salt, black pepper and water. Bring to a rolling boil, then reduce heat and cook with a lid cracked open for about 45 minutes, while stirring occasionally. If needed, add in a bit more water. Serve warm. This stew reheats great and will keep refrigerated for up to five days. It also freezes very well.

Pošto sam doma imala raznih ostataka, odlučila sam nam smućkati veliki lonac grah variva da nas hrani kroz tjedan. Tako da sam na kraju dobila ovakav čudnjikav, ali i jako ukusan miks na prvi pogled nespojivih stvari kao što su kvinoja i špek. Međutim, konačni je rezultat ispao odlično. Naravno, kao i uvijek, vi slobodno prilagodite sastojke, kako vlastitom ukusu, tako i onome što vam je doma pri ruci u hladnjaku i špajzi.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 8 izdašnih porcija / 6,69 kn po porciji / 53,57 kn za sve)

2 žlice suncokretovog ulja (0,20 kn)

2 luka (1,50 kn)

4 češnja češnjaka (1,00 kn)

4 mrkve (3,00 kn)

1 crvena paprika roga (2,50 kn)

2 velike dimljene kobasice (15,00 kn)

Mali komadić slanine (5,00 kn)

1 konzerva sjeckane rajčice (4,00 kn)

1 šalica crvene leće (5,00 kn)

1 šalica kvinoje (7,50 kn)

4 šalice kuhanog bijelog graha (6,00 kn)

2 žlice sušenog peršina (1,00 kn)

1 lovorov list (0,10 kn)

1 žlica slatke crvene paprike (0,50 kn)

1 žličica češnjaka u prahu (0,50 kn)

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

1 i ½ žličica soli (0,02 kn)

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

8 šalica vode (–)

PRIPREMA:

Operite, ogulite i fino nasjeckajte svo povrće. Kobasice narežite na novčiće, a slaninu na par krupnih komada. U mrežastoj cjediljci dobro isperite kvinoju i leću pod mlazom vode. Dodajte ulje u veliki lonac, pa na jakoj vatri par minuta dinstajte luk dok ne bude staklast. Ubacite svježi češnjak, mrkvu i papriku rogu. Kratko kuhajte tako da se povrće blago karamelizira, te onda ubacite kobasice i slaninu. Dobro promiješajte te ostavite kuhati pet minuta.

U lonac dodajte sjeckane rajčice, leću, kvinoju, grah, lovor, slatku papriku, češnjak u prahu, čili, sol, papar i vodu. Pustite da zavrije, pa smanjite vatru i krčkajte sa odškrinutim poklopcem oko 45 minuta. Povremeno promiješajte, a po potrebi dodajte još malo vode. Poslužite toplo. Ovo se varivo super podgrijava i smrzava, a u hladnjaku će držati do pet dana.

Creamy Polenta with Mushroom Sauce and Braised Chard (vegetarian) / Kremasta palenta sa umakom od gljiva i blitvom (vegetarijanska)

If you’re looking for something cheap, quick and easy, look no further. This dish is all of the above and more. You can also easily veganize the recipe by using vegan butter and vegan cream. The veggie combo is also totally optional, so feel free to sub chard with kale, spinach, broccoli, green beans or whatever else your heart may desire.

IMGP8350

IMGP8348

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields 4 generous servings / 1.23 EUR per serving / 4.93 EUR for all)

For polenta:

5-6 cups water (–)

Good pinch of salt (0.01 EUR)t

1 cup cornmeal (0.13 EUR)

4 tbsp butter (0.53 EUR)

For the mushroom sauce:

1 tbsp sunflower seed oil (0.01 EUR)

1 large onion (0.10 EUR)

500 grams of Portobello mushrooms (2.00 EUR)

2 tbsp butter (0.27 EUR)

Good pinch of salt (0.01 EUR)

Good pinch of ground black pepper (0.02 EUR)

1 cup cooking cream (0.66 EUR)

For braised chard:

2 tbsp olive oil (0.09 EUR)

500 grams of Swiss chard (1.00 EUR)

2 garlic cloves (0.07 EUR)

Good pinch of salt (0.01 EUR)

Good pinch of ground black pepper (0.02 EUR)

IMGP8349

METHOD:

Wash, peel and chop up all the veggies and mushrooms. To prepare the polenta, bring 5 cups of salty water to a rolling boil. Add in cornmeal and cook for 5-10 minutes, while stirring continuously. If too thick, add in a bit more water. Also keep in mind that polenta will thicken up as it cools. Once done, stir in butter. Set aside.

To make the mushroom sauce, saute the onion on oil until slightly translucent. Add in the mushrooms, butter, salt and pepper. Cook for about 5 minutes, until most of the liquid from the mushrooms has evaporated. Stir in the cooking cream, allow it to warm up and turn off heat.

Make the braised chard by combining all of the ingredients in a deep skillet on high heat. Cover tightly with a lid and cook for a few minutes until the chard wilts down, while stirring occasionally.

Once all of the above is cooked, serve polenta with mushroom sauce and braised chard. All of these have similar cooking times, so you can easily prepare all of the components to the dish simultaneously.

Ako ste u potrazi za nekim jeftinim, brzim i laganim jelom, ne gledajte dalje. Ova kombinacija je sve od navedenog, pa i više. Također recept lako možete veganizirati ako upotrijebite veganski maslac i vrhnje. Također, izbor povrća se može prilagoditi vašem osobnom ukusu, pa umjesto blitve slobodno možete uzeti kelj, špinat, brokulu, mahune ili štogod već volite.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 4 izdašne porcije / 36,84 kn po porciji / 9,21 kn za sve)

Za palentu:

5-6 šalica vode (–)

Dobar prstohvat soli (0,01 kn)

1 šalica kukuruzne krupice (1,00 kn)

4 žlice maslaca (4,00 kn)

Za umak od gljiva:

1 žlica suncokretovog ulja (0,10 kn)

1 veliki luk (0,75 kn)

500 g šampinjona (15,00 kn)

2 žlice maslaca (2,00 kn)

Dobar prstohvat soli (0,01 kn)

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

1 šalica vrhnja za kuhanje (5,00 kn)

Za dinstanu blitvu:

2 žlice maslinovog ulja (0,66 kn)

500 g blitve (7,50 kn)

2 češnja češnjaka (0,50 kn)

Dobar prstohvat soli (0,01 kn)

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

PRIPREMA:

Operite, ogulite i nasjeckajte svo povrće i gljive. Palentu priredite tako da pustite 5 šalica slane vode da zavriju. Dodajte kukuruznu krupicu te kuhajte 5-10 minuta uz učestalo miješanje. Ako je smjesa pregusta, dodajte još malo vode. Također, imajte na umu da će se palenta još dodatno zgusnuti kako se bude hladila. Kada je palenta kuhana, umiješajte maslac i stavite na stranu.

Za umak od gljiva prodinstajte luk na ulju koju minutu da postane staklast. Ubacite gljive, maslac, sol i papar. Kuhajte oko pet minuta, dok većina tekućine iz gljiva ne ispari. Umiješajte vrhnje za kuhanje, pustite da se ugrije, pa maknite sa vatre.

Blitvu priredite tako da sve sastojke pomiješate u dubljoj tavi na jakoj vatri. Čvrsto poklopite i kuhajte par minuta dok blitva ne povene. Povremeno promiješajte.

Kada je sve gotovo, palentu poslužite sa umakom od gljiva i blitvom. Pošto sve komponente imaju slično vrijeme kuhanja, sve možete lako tempirati da bude približno istovremeno gotovo.

Chicken and Garlic Green Bean Stir-Fry / Piletina i mahune sa češnjakom iz woka

This stir fry-is super quick and easy to make and hence an excellent option to keep in your arsenal for busy weeknight days. It also reheats great, so you can whip up some extra for meal prep. In this recipe I used pork lard for frying, but feel free to substitute this with neutral oil of your choice.

IMGP8243

IMGP8238

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields 4 servings / 0.94 EUR per serving / 3.76 EUR for all)

For the meat:

1 large boneless, skinless chicken breast (2.00 EUR)

½ tsp salt (0.01 EUR)

½ tsp freshly ground black pepper (0.03 EUR)

1 tbsp pork lard (0.01 EUR)

1 tbsp corn starch (0.01 EUR)

For the stir-fry:

1 tsp pork lard (0.01 EUR)

4 garlic cloves, minced (0.13 EUR)

500 grams frozen green beans (1.00 EUR)

Pinch of red pepper flakes (0.02 EUR)

2 tbsp soy sauce (0.13 EUR)

1 tsp toasted sesame oil (0.07 EUR)

Optional for serving:

2 tbsp Sriracha (0.27 EUR)

2 tbsp sesame seeds (0.07 EUR)

IMGP8241

METHOD:

Wash and pat dry the meat, then cut it into small cubes and toss together with salt and pepper. Place a wok on medium-high heat and fry the meat in a bit of pork lard until crispy. I suggest you fry the meat in two or three small batches to ensure the maximum crispiness. Towards the end of frying, sprinkle the meat with corn starch and cook for additional minute or two. Remove all the meat from wok and set aside.

Add a bit more lard to the same wok and throw in minced garlic, green beans and red pepper flakes. Cover your wok with a lid and cook for about five minutes, until the green beans are cooked through, while stirring occasionally. Return the meat to the wok, add in soy sauce and sesame oil, give a good stir and cook for additional minute or two.

Serve immediately over a bed of cooked rice, drizzled with Sriracha and sprinkled with sesame seeds.

Ovo jelo iz woka je jako brzo i jednostavno za pripremiti pa je stoga super za imati u arsenalu kada vam treba nešto za užurbani tjedan. Također se i dobro podgrijava pa je dobra opcija i za prirediti unaprijed. Ja sam u ovom receptu upotrijebila svinjsku mast za prženje, ali vi ju slobodno zamijenite sa nekim neutralnim uljem po vašem izboru.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 4 porcije / 7,05 kn po porciji / 28,21 kn za sve)

Za meso:

1 velika pileća prsa bez kosti i kože (15,00 kn)

½ žličice soli (0,01 kn)

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

1 žlica svinjske masti (0,10 kn)

1 žlica kukuruznog škroba (0,10 kn)

Za wok:

1 žlica svinjske masti (0,10 kn)

4 češnja češnjaka, sjeckana (1,00 kn)

500 g smrznutih zelenih mahuna (7,50 kn)

Prstohvat sušenog čilija u pahuljicama (0,15 kn)

2 žlice soja sosa (1,00 kn)

1 žličica tostiranog sezamovog ulja (0,50 kn)

Po izboru za posluživanje:

2 žlice Srirache (2,00 kn)

2 žlice sezama (0,50 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Operite i kuhinjskim ručnikom posušite meso. Narežite ga na kockice, pa začinite sa solju i paprom. Duboku tavu ili wok stavite na srednje jaku vatru, pa na svinjskoj masti ispržite meso dok ne bude hrskavo. Moja je sugestija da meso pržite u dvije ili tri manje ture radi maksimalne hrskavoće. Prema kraju prženja posipajte meso sa kukuruznim škrobom i pržite još dodatnu minutu-dvije. Svo meso maknite iz woka i držite sa strane.

U isti wok dodajte još malo masti i ubacite unutra sjeckani češnjak, mahune i čili. Poklopite wok i kuhajte oko pet minuta dok mahune ne omekšaju. Prema potrebi koji puta promiješajte. Meso vratite u wok, dodajte soja sos i sezamovo ulje, te dobro promiješajte. Kuhajte još koju minutu.

Poslužite odmah preko kuhane riže, pokapano Srirachom i posipano sezamom.

METHOD:

Wash, peel and dice all the veggies. Add one tablespoon of oil, diced onion, minced garlic and bell pepper to a skillet on medium-high heat and saute for about 5 minutes, until slightly caramelized and softened. Set aside.

Add the black beans to a bowl and using a potato masher, mash them up until a chunky paste forms. Add in the sauted onion and pepper mix, remaining oil, garlic powder, chili, black pepper, salt and barbecue sauce. Give a good stir, then add in chickpea flour a bit by bit, until the mixture is thick enough to shape into patties.

Line a baking tray with parchment paper and preheat the oven to 200°C. Scoop the prepared burger mixture, shape into patties and spread on a prepared baking tray. Bake for 25-30 minutes, until the burgers are crispy and done to your liking.

Prošlo je dosta vremena od kada sam zadnji puta objavila recept za veganske burgere, pa vam evo jedni jednostavni i ukusni burgeri od crnog graha i slanutka.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 6 burgera / 3,59 kn po burgeru / 21,56 kn za sve)

Za smjesu:

3 žlice suncokretovog ulja, podijeljene (0,30 kn)

1 veliki luk (0,75 kn)

3 češnja češnjaka (0,75 kn)

1 crvena paprika (3,00 kn)

2 šalice kuhanog crnog graha (3,00 kn)

½ žličice sušenog češnjaka u prahu (0,25 kn)

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

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

1 žličica soli (0,01 kn)

3 žlice barbecue umaka (3,00 kn)

1 i ½ – 2 šalice brašna od slanutka (10,00 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Operite, ogulite i nasjeckajte svo povrće. U tavicu na srednje jakoj vatri dodajte žlicu ulja, sjeckani luk, češnjak i papriku, pa dinstajte oko pet minuta da se sve blago karamelizira i omekša. Stavite na stranu.

Grah stavite u veću zdjelu pa izgnječite sa gnječilicom za pire dok ne dobijete pastu sa komadićima graha. U to ubacite dinstani miks luka i paprike, preostalo ulje, češnjak u prahu, čili, papar, sol i barbecue umak. Dobro sve promiješajte, pa malo po malo dodajte brašno od slanutka dok smjesa ne bude dovoljno gusta da možete formirati burgere.

Protvan obložite papirom za pečenje i zagrijte pećnicu na 200°C. Smjesu formirajte u burgere koje ćete raširiti po pripremljenom protvanu. Pecite oko 25-30 minuta, dok burgeri ne budu pečeni i hrskavi prema vašem ukusu.
