Chickpea, Rye and Sausage Stew (including a vegan option) / Varivo sa kobasicom od slanutka i raži (sa veganskom opcijom)

I guess my favorite part of autumn is all those warm and cozy soups and stews. Those are just the perfect dishes, if you ask me. They are filling, cheap and super easy to make. Also, you can always cook up big batches to have some leftovers for work and shove a portion or two in your freezer. Meal prep saves me so much time and sanity, so I always welcome dishes like this one that reheat well.

This recipe is super customizable so feel free to switch ingredients with stuff you have on hand. I had some whole grain rye around, but feel free to use barley, wheat or even brown rice. To make this vegan, just ditch the sausage and use some smoked firm tofu or seitan.

IMGP6837

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields 4 generous servings / 1.09 EUR per serving / 4.34 EUR for all)

1 cup dried chickpeas (0.67 EUR)

1 cup whole grain rye (0.53 EUR)

2 tbsp olive oil (0.09 EUR)

1 large onion (0.10 EUR)

4 garlic cloves (0.13 EUR)

2 pickled sweet pepperoncino peppers (0.13 EUR)

1 bay leaf (0.03 EUR)

Pinch of dried chili flakes (0.02 EUR)

4 carrots (0.27 EUR)

4 small sausages – I used Carniolan sausage (1.87 EUR)

2 tbsp ajvar – red pepper paste (0.13 EUR)

1 tbsp tomato paste (0.13 EUR)

1 tbsp sweet Hungarian paprika (0.07 EUR)

1 tsp salt (0.01 EUR)

1 tsp freshly ground black pepper (0.03 EUR)

4-5 cups water (–)

2 tbsp fresh chopped parsley (0.13 EUR)

IMGP6835

METHOD:

The day before rinse chickpeas and rye under running water and leave to soak overnight. When ready to cook, drain them, wash again under running water and set aside. Wash, peel and finely dice all the veggies and cut the sausages into coins.

Saute onion on olive oil on high heat until slightly translucent. Add in chopped garlic, pepperoncinos, bay leaf and chili. Give a good stir and cook for just a minute, so the aromas from spices release. Add in diced carrots and sausage coins (or a vegan alternative), then cook for about 10 minutes to slightly caramelize. Now dump in drained uncooked chickpeas and rye, ajvar, tomato paste, paprika, salt, pepper and water. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer with a lid cracked open for about an hour, until the chickpeas and rye are thoroughly cooked through. You can also skip the overnight soak if you are in a hurry, but the cooking time is gonna be around hour and a half then and you’ll definitely need to add more water to the stew. While the stew cooks, if necessary, add in another splash of water and stir occasionally. Serve sprinkled with fresh parsley.

Milsim da su mi najdraži dio jeseni sva ona topla jela na žlicu. Po meni je to jednostavno savršena hrana jer je zasitna, jeftina i jednostavna za skuhati. Također, uvijek možete pripremiti više i imati ostatke za na posao ili ubaciti koju porciju u zamrzivač. Meni osobno takav način kuhanja štedi mnogo vremena i živaca, tako da obožavam ovakvu vrstu hranu koja dobro trpi podgrijavanje.

Ovaj je recept jako prilagodljiv, pa slobodno zamjenite neke od sastojaka onime što vam je pri ruci. Ja sam imala nešto integralne raži pri ruci, ali slobodno umjesto toga upotrijebite ječam, pšenicu ili čak smeđu rižu. Da ovo jelo bude vegansko, izbacite kobasice i umjesto njih ubacite dimljeni čvrsti tofu ili seitan.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 4 izdašne porcije / 8,13 kn po porciji / 32,52 kn za sve)

1 šalica suhog slanutka (5,00 kn)

1 šalice suhe integralne raži (4,00 kn)

2 žlice maslinovog ulja (0,66 kn)

1 veliki luk (0,75 kn)

4 ćešnja ćešnjaka (1,00 kn)

2 ukiseljena slatka feferona (1,00 kn)

1 lovorov list (0,20 kn)

Prstohvat sušenog čilija u pahuljicama (0,15 kn)

4 mrkve (2,00 kn)

4 male kobasice – ja sam upotrijebila kranjske (14,00 kn)

2 žlice ajvara (1,00 kn)

1 žlica koncentrata od rajčice (1,00 kn)

1 žlica slatke crvene paprike (0,50 kn)

1 žličica soli (0,01 kn)

1 žličica svježe mljevenog crnog papra (0,25 kn)

4-5 šalica vode (–)

2 žlice svježeg sjeckanog peršina (1,00 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Dan prije isperite slanutak i raž pod tekućom vodom i ostavite ih da se namaču preko noći. Kada ste spremni za kuhanje, ocijedite ih, isperite još jednom pod tekćom vodom i stavite na stranu. Operite, ogulite i nasjeckajte svo povrće, a kobasice narežite na novčiće.

Prodinstajte luk na maslinovom ulju na jakoj vatri dok ne postane staklast. Ubacite sjeckane češnjak i feferone, lovorov list i čili. Dobro promiješajte i kuhajte samo koju minutu, da se arome iz začina otpuste. Ubacite nasjeckanu mrkvu i kobasice (ili vegansku alternativu), pa kuhajte desetak minuta da se sve blago karamelizira. Sada dodajte ocijeđene slanutak i raž, ajvar, koncentrat rajčice, crvenu papriku, sol, papar i vodu. Promiješajte, pustite da zavrije, smanjite vatru i ostavite da se krčka sa odškrinutim poklopcem oko jedan sat, dok se slanutak do kraja ne skuha. Ako ste u žurbi možete preskočiti namakanje slanutka i raži preko noći, ali ćete onda trebati sve kuhati oko sat i pol i u varivo će trebati dodati više vode. Po potrebi tokom kuhanja dodajte još malo vode i povremeno promiješajte. Poslužite posipano svježim sjeckanim peršinom.

Crispy Spicy Oven Roasted Chicken Sticks / Hrskavi pikantni pileći štapići iz pećnice

These chicken sticks work awesome either as a snack, or as a full meal. They’re also a great crowd feeder and can be assembled beforehand right up to the point of brushing them with oil and roasting. The fact that you don’t have to deep fry them means that they’re a bit healthier and less fussy. Overall, I’m keeping a stack of them in my freezer for those days when all you need is some fried chicken in your life.

I served them with this creamy mushroom sauce from previous post and they were to die for.

IMGP6775

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields about 50 chicken sticks / 0.18 EUR per stick / 8.97 EUR for all)

For the chicken:

1 kilo boneless skinless chicken breast (5.33 EUR)

1 tsp salt (0.01 EUR)

For the egg batter:

3 eggs (0.60 EUR)

1 cup all-purpose flour (0.07 EUR)

¼ cup water (–)

Good pinch of salt (0.01 EUR)

Good pinch of freshly ground black pepper (0.01 EUR)

For the crumb batter:

2 cups breadcrumbs (0.40 EUR)

1 cup finely grated hard cheese, like Grana Padano (1.33 EUR)

½ cup sesame seeds (0.33 EUR)

1 tsp smoked paprika (0.07 EUR)

1 tsp cumin seeds (0.07 EUR)

1 tsp garlic powder (0.07 EUR)

½ tsp dried chili flakes (0.03 EUR)

½ tsp salt (0.01 EUR)

½ tsp freshly ground black pepper (0.02 EUR)

4 tbsp butter, melted (0.53 EUR)

For roasting:

¼ cup sunflower seed oil (0.08 EUR)

IMGP6757

IMGP6758

IMGP6759

METHOD:

Cut chicken breast into thin strips, toss with salt and set aside. Prepare the egg batter by whisking together all of the ingredients until thick and smooth. Make the crumb batter in a separate bowl by stirring together breadcrumbs, cheese, sesame seeds, paprika, cumin, garlic powder, chili flakes, salt and black pepper. Pour melted butter over the mixture and massage it into the crumbs with your fingers. The finished product should feel like damp sand.

Preheat the oven to 200°C. Prepare a few baking trays by lining them with parchment paper. You can also bake chicken on a wire rack, but I find the baking tray easier to clean up and the chicken turns out just as crispy. To assemble chicken sticks, first coat each chicken piece with an egg batter, then toss in the crumb batter. Spread chicken pieces on a prepared baking tray. At this point you can also freeze the chicken for later. Just place the tray in a freezer and after 2-3 hours transfer chicken pieces to a zip lock bag. There’s no need to thaw the chicken before roasting, just brush the sticks with a bit of oil and toss into the oven.

When you are gonna roast the chicken, brush each peace lightly with oil on all sides. Roast for 25 minutes, until crispy and golden-brown. Serve warm with a sauce of your choice for dipping. Also, invite some friends over because these are so addictive you’re otherwise going to polish them all off by yourself.

Ovi pileći štapići su fantastični snack ili kompletni obrok. Također su super za nahraniti gomilu ljudi i možete ih pripremiti unaprijed, skroz do točke kada ćete ih premazati uljem i baciti u pećnicu. Činjenica što ih ne morate peći na štednjaku u dubokom ulju znači da su malo zdraviji i malo manje prtljavi. U svakom slučaju, u frizeru čuvam zalihu za one dane kada vam u životu stvarno trebaju pileći pohanci.

Ja sam ih poslužila sa ovim kremastim umakom od gljiva iz prošlog posta i bili su božanstveni.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 50tak pilećih štapića / 1,34 kn po štapiću / 67,13 kn za sve)

Za meso:

1 kg pilećeg filea (40,00 kn)

1 žličica soli (0,01 kn)

Za smjesu od jaja:

3 jaja (4,50 kn)

1 šalica glatkog brašna (0,50 kn)

¼ šalice vode (–)

Dobar prstohvat soli (0,01 kn)

Dobar prstohvat svježe mljevenog crnog papra (0,10 kn)

Za smjesu od krušnih mrvica:

2 šalice krušnih mrvica (3,00 kn)

1 šalica fino naribanog tvrdog sira, kao Grana Padano (10,00 kn)

½ šalice sjemenki sezama (2,50 kn)

1 žličica dimljene crvene paprike (0,50 kn)

1 žličica kima (0,50 kn)

1 žličica češnjaka u prahu (0,50 kn)

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

½ žličice soli (0,01 kn)

½ žličice svježe mljevenog crnog papra (0,15 kn)

4 žlice maslaca, rastopljene (4,00 kn)

Za pečenje:

¼ šalice suncokretovog ulja (0,60 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Narežite pileća prsa na tanke trakice, posolite i stavite na stranu. Pripremite smjesu od jaja tako da skupa razmutite sve sastojke u gusto i glatko tijesto. Smjesu od mrvica napravite u drugoj posudi tako da pomiješate krušne mrvice, sir, sezam, papriku, kim, češnjak, čili, sol i papar. Prelijte preko svega rastopljeni maslac i prstima umasirajte u smjesu. Konačna smjesa trebala bi sličiti vlažnom pijesku.

Zagrijte pećnicu na 200°C. Pripremite par protvana tako da ih obložite papirom za pečenje. Također možete peći štapiće i na rešetci, ali meni je protvan lakši za očistiti, a piletina ispadne jednako hrskava. Da pripremite štapiće, umočite komadiće mesa prvo u smjesu jaja, onda u krušne mrvice. Štapiće raširite po pripremljenom protvanu. U ovoj fazi možete piletinu i smrznuti za kasnije. Samo stavite cijeli protvan u zamrzivač, a nakon 2-3 sata preselite meso u vrećicu za smrzavanje. Prije pečenja štapiće ne treba odmrzavati, samo ih premažite sa malo ulja i ubacite u pećnicu.

Kada ćete peći meso, lagano premažite svaki pileći štapić sa malo ulja sa svih strana. Pecite 25 minuta, dok se meso ne zahrska i ne bude zlatno-smeđe. Poslužite toplo sa umakom po izboru za umakanje. Osim toga, pozovite prijatelje da vam pomognu jesti, jer su ovim štapići tako fini da ćete ih inače sami smazati.

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.

PRIPREMA:

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.

Baked Turkey Meatballs / Pečene pureće mesne okruglice

I’ve been in a mood for meatballs for the longest time ever. Since the weather is pretty warm, I decided to make the meatballs with ground turkey, as it’s lighter than beef or pork. Naturally, the batch I’ve prepared was huge, so I munched on these for the whole week. Feel free to scale down and adjust the amounts to your liking.

IMGP6515

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields about 40 meatballs / 0.21 EUR per meatball, 8.35 EUR for all)

1 large onion (0.10 EUR)

5 garlic cloves (0.17 EUR)

1.200 grams of ground turkey (6.67 EUR)

1 egg (0.20 EUR)

1 cup bread crumbs (0.40 EUR)

¼ cup sunflower seed oil (0.10 EUR)

1 tbsp Gochujang – Korean chili paste (0.13 EUR)

½ cup Ajvar – red horn pepper paste, here and here are recipes for homemade (0.40 EUR)

1 tsp smoky red paprika (0.07 EUR)

1 tsp freshly ground black pepper (0.07 EUR)

½ tsp dried chili flakes (0.03 EUR)

2 tsp salt (0.01 EUR)

IMGP6521

IMGP6514

METHOD:

Preheat the oven to 200°C. Finely dice the onion and mince garlic. In a large bowl mix all of the ingredients together with your hands. Using a spoon or a small ice cream scoop (which is my personal favorite for this job) scoop up the mixture and form into small balls. Spread the meatballs on a baking tray and bake for about 30 minutes, until they are nice and crispy on the outside. You can also bake the meatballs in a silicone muffin tray, which I find even better for the job as it makes the cleaning less tedious. These meatballs reheat great and once baked should keep in your fridge for at least five days.

Već mi se sto godina jedu mesne okruglice, a pošto je vrijeme dosta toplo, odlučila sam se za mljevenu puretinu jer je lakša od svinjetine ili junetine. Naravno, morala sam odma napraviti enormnu količinu pa sam okruglice tamanila cijeli tjedan. Vi slobodno prilagodite količine sastojaka svojim potrebama.

SASTOJCI:

(Za oko 40 okruglica / 1,56 kn po okruglici / 62,52 kn za sve)

1 veliki luk (0,75 kn)

5 češnjeva češnjaka (1,25 kn)

1.200 grama mljevene puretine (50,00 kn)

1 jaje (1,50 kn)

1 šalica krušnih mrvica (3,00 kn)

¼ šalice suncokretovog ulja (0,75 kn)

1 žlica Gochujanga – korejske chili paste (1,00 kn)

½ šalice ajvara – tu i tu su recepti za domaći (3,00 kn)

1 žličica dimljene crvene paprike (0,50 kn)

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

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

2 žličice soli (0,02 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Zagrijte pećnicu na 200°C. Fino nasjeckajte luk i češnjak. U velikoj zdjeli rukama dobro izmješajte sve sastojke. Žlicom ili malom žlicom za sladoled (što je moj osobni favorit za ovaj posao) grabite smjesu i oblikujte u male kuglice. Okruglice raširite po protvanu za pečenje i pecite oko 30 minuta, dok se izvana lijepo ne zahrskaju. Okruglice možete također peći i u silikonskom kalupu za mafine, što je po meni još bolje jer olakšava čišćenje. Ove okruglice se super podgrijavaju, a jednom pečene u frižideru mogu držati barem pet dana.

I love eating green and yellow beans, but they usually somehow pass below my radar and I simply forget to cook with them. This stew is super tasty and the smoky aroma from paprika rounds it all up beautifully. It’s also one of those things you can refrigerate and reheat, so naturally you wanna keep it around for quick weeknight meals.

Cover with water until all the veggies are submerged and stir to combine. Simmer for about 30 minutes, while stirring occasionally, until everything is cooked through and most of the water evaporates. Stir in fresh parsley and serve warm.

Obožavam jesti i zelene i žute mahune, ali nekako mi uvijek prođu ispod radara i jednostavno zaboravim s njima kuhati. Ovo varivo je jako ukusno, a aroma dima iz paprike sve to lijepo zaokružuje. Također, ovo je jedna od onih stvari koja se dobro drži u frižideru i podgrijava, tako da naravno želite imati dio pri ruci za brzi obrok tijekom tjedna.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 4 porcije / 5,46 kn po porciji / 21,82 kn za sve)

2 žlice maslinovog ulja (0,66 kn)

3 lovorova lista (0,30 kn)

2-3 šalice vode (–)

Pregršt svježeg peršina (1,00 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Operite, ogulite i nasjeckajte svo povrće. U velikom loncu prodinstajte luk na žlici ulja dok ne postane staklast. Dodajte nasjeckani češnjak i mrkvu, pa kuhajte nekoliko minuta. Ubacite pelate i izgnječite ih špatulom u manje komade, pa onda dodajte mahune, krumpire, sol, papar, čili, papriku i lovorov list. Podlijte sa onoliko vode koliko treba da svo povrće bude potopljeno i dobro promiješajte. Pustijte da zavrije i krčkajte uz povremeno miješanje oko 30 minuta, dok se sve ne skuha, a većina vode ne ispari. Umiješajte svježi peršin i poslužite toplo.

The weather has been super warm and humid lately, so all I wanna do is munch on salads. This recipe is ideal as a light lunch and you can whip it up in just minutes. If you’re as lazy as I am, you’re gonna make it even easier for yourself and use prewashed and cut bagged mixed greens. Mine had thin carrot sticks in as well.

METHOD:

Drain canned tuna from brine or oil and flake it with a fork. Finely chop up anchovies and cut pitted olives into rings. Toss together with capers and mixed greens. Season with olive oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper and enjoy. Be sure to go easy on the salt, though, as anchovies, olives and capers are already quite salty on their own.

Vrijeme je zadnjih dana baš toplo i sparno, tako da mi se samo jedu salate. Ovaj recept je idealan kao lagani ručak, a možete ga zgotoviti za svega par minuta. Ako ste jednako lijeni kao i ja, olakšajte si dodatno tako da uzmete pakiranu opranu i narezanu zelenjavu. U mojoj salati su bili također i tanki štapići mrkve.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 2 porcije / 15,16 kn po porciji / 30,32 kn za sve)

1 konzerva tune (13,00 kn)

2 slana fileta inčuna (2,00 kn)

1/3 šalice odkoštenih maslina (3,00 kn)

2 žlice kapara  (2,00 kn)

Veliki pregršt miješane salate (7,50 kn)

2 žlice maslinovog ulja (0,66 kn)

2 žlice limunovog soka (2,00 kn)

Mali prstohvat soli (0,01 kn)

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

PRIPREMA:

Ocijedite tunu od salamure ili ulja i usitnite viljuškom. Fino nasjeckajte inćune, a masline narežite na kolutiće. Pomiješajte skupa sa kaparama i salatom. Začinite sa maslinovim uljem, sokom od limuna, soli i paprom i navalite. Samo pazite da ne pretjerate sa soli, jer su i inčuni, masline i kapare već prilično slani sami za sebe.
