Mushroom and Quinoa ‘’Risotto’’ (vegan) / ”Rižoto” od gljiva i kvinoje (veganski)

I’m a great fan of mushroom risottos, but admittedly, even I can sometimes get a bit bored of that dish. The super easy hack is to just swap the rice with any other grain of your choice. I went for quinoa in here and also decided to give it all an Asian twist by adding soy sauce and sesame oil. Overall, I’m very happy with how this dish turned out. I was also wise enough to make a huge batch and have lunch sorted out for almost an entire week.

Add oil, butter and mushrooms to a pot on high heat and cook for about 10 minutes, until mushrooms start to brown. Add in the onion, carrots and garlic, then stir and cook for another five minutes to slightly caramelize the veggies.

Dump in mushroom powder, salt, pepper, red pepper flakes, soy sauce, quinoa and veggie broth. Bring to a rolling boil, reduce heat and simmer with a lid cracked open for about 20 minutes, until quinoa is cooked through. Remove from heat and stir in the sesame oil. Serve while warm, or portion out for later as this dish reheats great.

Ja sam veliki ljubitelj rižota od gljiva, ali čak i meni to jelo s vremena na vrijeme može pomalo dosaditi. Najjednostavnije i najbrže rješenje da vam stvari i dalje budu zanimljive je da rižu jednostavno zamijenite sa nekom drugom žitaricom po vašem izboru. Ja sam se ovdje odlučila za kvinoju i još sam napravila mali azijski twist tako da sam ubacila soja sos i sezamovo ulje. Sve u svemu, baš sam jako zadovoljna kako mi je ovo jelo ispalo. Ujedno sam bila dovoljno mudra i da skuham veću porciju pa da za cijeli tjedan imam riješen ručak.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 6 porcija / 6,50 kn po porciji / 39,01 kn za sve)

2 žlice suncokretovog ulja (0,20 kn)

2 žlice veganskog maslaca (2,00 kn)

500 g šampinjona (15,00 kn)

1 veliki luk (0,75 kn)

3 mrkve (2,25 kn)

3 češnja češnjaka (0,75 kn)

2 žlice praška od gljiva (2,00 kn)

Dobar prstohvat soli (0,01 kn)

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

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

3 žlice soja sosa (1,50 kn)

1 i ½ šalica kvinoje (11,25 kn)

4 šalice povrtnog temeljca (2,00 kn)

2 žličice tostiranog sezamovog ulja (1,00 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Operite, ogulite i nasjeckajte svo povrće i gljive. Kvinoju isperite u finoj cjediljci pod mlazom tekuće vode. Ulje, maslac i gljive stavite u lonac na jaku vatru te kuhajte desetak minuta, dok gljive ne dobiju boju. Ubacite luk, mrkve i češnjak, dobro promiješajte te kuhajte još pet minuta da se i povrće blago karamelizira.

Sada dodajte prašak od gljiva, sol, papar, čili, soja sos, kvinoju i temeljac. Pustite da zavrije, smanjite vatru te krčkajte sa odškrinutim poklopcem dvadesetak minuta, dok kvinoja ne bude skroz kuhana. Maknite sa vatre i umiješajte sezamovo ulje. Poslužite toplo ili raspodijelite u porcije za kasnije jer se ovo jelo super podgrijava.

U hladnim zimskim danima (iako, nije baš i da je ove godine neka zima) jedu mi se samo juhe i juhe. Ljute, blage, kremaste ili bistre, samo mi dajte juhice i meni budu sve bile super. Ovaj recept u nastavku je totalno jednostavan za napraviti, a dobiti ćete zasitno jelo zahvaljujući ječmu i krumpirima, pa zapravo može proći i kao kompletan ručak. A meni nema ništa draže nego se fino umotati doma u dekicu sa zdjelicom ove fine juhice.

Sada ubacite mrkve, krumpire i češnjak, dobro promiješajte te kuhajte jedno pet minuta da sve dobije boju. Na kraju dodajte i ječam, koncentrat rajčice, sol, papar, čili, soja sos i temeljac. Pustite da zavrije, smanjite vatru te krčkajte sa odškrinutim poklopcem jedno 45 minuta, dok se ječam ne skuha do kraja. Poslužite odmah sa kriškom nekog finog kruha ili pak rasporedite u porcije za kasnije, pošto se ova juhica super podgrijava.

Mushroom and Barley Soup (vegan) / Juha od gljiva i ječma (veganska)

Creamy Mushroom, Cauliflower and Bean Soup (vegan) / Krem juha od gljiva, cvjetače i graha (veganska)

Whenever I’m in doubt about what I want to eat, I know that I can never go wrong with a bowl of delicious soup. This one is fortified with cannellini beans, which makes it super hearty and filling. I’m definitely craving lighter foods now that the holidays and all the festivities are over, so this soup gives my tummy a much needed break.

IMG_2348

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields 6 servings / 0.75 EUR per serving / 4.51 EUR for all)

2 tbsp sunflower seed oil (0.03 EUR)

300 grams of oyster mushrooms (2.00 EUR)

1 large onion (0.10 EUR)

400 grams of frozen cauliflower (1.00 EUR)

1 can of cannellini beans (0.67 EUR)

1 tsp garlic powder (0.07 EUR)

1 tsp salt (0.01 EUR)

1 tsp freshly ground black pepper (0.07 EUR)

1 bay leaf (0.03 EUR)

2 tbsp dried parsley (0.13 EUR)

6 cups of veggie broth (0.40 EUR)

IMG_2345

METHOD:

Wash the mushrooms and tear them up in strips. Peel and dice the onion. Add the oil and the mushrooms to a large pot on medium-high heat and cook for about 10 minutes until caramelized. After ten minutes add in the diced onion and cook for about five minutes to soften. Then add in the cauliflower, cannellini beans, garlic powder, salt, black pepper, bay leaf, parsley and veggie broth. Bring to a rolling boil, reduce heat and simmer with a lid cracked open for about 20 minutes.

After 20 minutes turn off heat and fish out and discard the bay leaf. Pulse the soup through with an immersion blender until creamy and smooth. If you’d like to keep some texture, set some chunks aside before pulsing. Taste and adjust seasonings, then serve. This soup also reheats great and is an excellent option for meal prep. Some fresh croutons would also go wonderfully with it.

Kada god imam nekih dilema oko toga što bih jela, znam da nikada neću pogriješiti sa nekom finom juhicom. Ova u nastavku je još podebljana sa bijelim grahom, tako da je baš izdašna i zasitna. Sada kad su nam prošli blagdani i slavlja, definitivno mi se jede laganija hrana, a sa ovom sam juhom i svojem trbuhu dala priliku da se malo odmori.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 6 porcija / 5,61 kn po porciji / 33,66 kn za sve)

2 žlice suncokretovog ulja (0,20 kn)

300 g bukovača (15,00 kn)

1 veliki luk (0,75 kn)

400 g smrznute cvjetače (7,50 kn)

6 šalica povrtnog temeljca (3,00 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Operite gljive i natrgajte ih na trakice. Ogulite i nasjeckajte luk. Ulje i gljive ubacite u veliki lonac na srednje jakoj vatri, pa ih kuhajte desetak minuta da se blago karameliziraju. Nakon desetak minuta dodajte i luk, te sve kuhajte još pet minuta da omekša. Onda dodajte cvjetaču, grah, češnjak, sol, papar, lovor, peršin i temeljac. Pustite da zavrije, smanjite vatru te krčkajte sa odškrinutim poklopcem 20-tak minuta.

Nakon 20 minuta maknite s vatre, ispecajte i bacite lovorov list, te juhu propasirajte štapnim mikserom dok ne bude glatka. Ako želite malo teksture u juhi, prije pasiranja odgrabite na stranu malo gustiša. Kušajte i prilagodite začine, pa poslužite. Ova juha se super podgrijava pa je odlična opcija za skuhati unaprijed i ponijeti na posao. Također, izvrsno bi išla i poslužena sa svježim domaćim krutonima.

Add in vegan butter and all of the mushrooms. Stir and cook for 10-15 minutes until the mushrooms are cooked down and lightly browned. Now add in minced garlic, barley, tomato paste, salt, black pepper, red pepper flakes, garlic powder, dried oregano and veggie broth. Bring to a rolling boil, reduce heat and simmer with a lid cracked open for 30 minutes, until the barley is cooked through.

Once the barley is cooked, turn off heat and stir in frozen spinach. Put the lid back on and let the stew sit for about 10 minutes, so the spinach cooks from residual heat. Give a good final stir and serve immediately. This dish also freezes and reheats great, so don’t be shy and be sure to cook up a nice big batch. You’ll definitely thank yourself later.

Beef and Mushroom Stir-Fry / Junetina s gljivama iz woka

I guess by now my love for Chinese food is probably a well-known thing. It’s no surprise I am constantly experimenting with ingredients and flavor combinations. For this recipe I wanted to step away from the usual chicken and opted for a lean cut of beef. The combination with earthy mushrooms turned out delicious, so I am sure I’ll be making this dish again pretty soon.

Cut the meat into thin strips. Toss it with oil, soy sauce, salt and pepper and leave to rest in a fridge for at least 30 minutes, but best overnight. Wash, peel and chop up all the veggies and mushrooms.

Place a wok or a deep skillet on medium heat and allow to thoroughly warm up. Add in a bit of oil then fry the meat for a few minutes until cooked through. It’s best to do this in two smaller batches, so you don’t overcrowd the pan. Remove all the beef from the pan and set it aside. Add in the remaining oil and dump in the onions and all mushrooms. Cook for about ten minutes so everything cooks down and starts to slightly caramelize. Add in minced garlic, Gochujang, soy sauce and sesame oil, stir and cook those for additional few minutes before returning the meat to the pan.

In a bowl whisk together corn starch and water. Once the corn starch is fully dissolved, pour the mixture into the pan and give everything a really good stir. Once the sauce thickens, turn off heat and serve over cooked rice and sprinkled with chopped scallions.

Mislim da je moja ljubav prema kineskoj hrani već općepoznata stvar, pa nije ni čudo da uvijek eksperimentiram sa novim kombinacijama sastojaka i okusa. Za ovaj sam se recept odlučila odmaknuti od piletine koja je dosta česti dio mojih kreacija tog tipa te sam se odlučila za krti komad junećeg buta. U kombinaciji sa gljivama ovo je jelo ispalo odlično, tako da sam sigurna da ću ga ubrzo ponovo pripremati.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 4 porcije / 12,33 kn po porciji / 49,31 kn za sve)

Za meso:

400 g krte junetine, kao npr. od buta (20,00 kn)

1 žlica suncokretovog ulja (0,10 kn)

1 žlica soja sosa (0,50 kn)

Dobar prstohvat soli (0,01 kn)

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

Za wok:

2 žlice suncokretovog ulja, podijeljene (0,20 kn)

2 luka (1,50 kn)

100 g shiitaka (10,00 kn)

400 g šampinjona (12,00 kn)

3 češnja češnjaka (0,75 kn)

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

2 žlice soja sosa (1,00 kn)

1 žličica tostiranog sezamovog ulja (1,00 kn)

1 žlica kukuruznog škroba (0,10 kn)

½ šalice vode (–)

Dodatno:

Sjeckane stabljike mladog luka (1,00 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Meso narežite na tanke trakice te ga pomiješajte sa uljem, soja sosom, soli i paprom, pa ostavite u hladnjaku da se marinira minimalno pola sata, a najbolje preko noći. Operite, ogulite i nasjeckajte svo povrće i gljive.

Wok ili duboku tavu stavite na srednje jaku vatru i pustite da se dobro ugrije. Dodajte malo ulja, pa na njemu ispržite junetinu. Za najbolje rezultate pržite meso u dvije manje ture kako vam wok ne bi bio prenatrpan. Gotovo meso maknite iz woka i stavite na stranu. Dodajte u wok preostalo ulje, luk i sve gljive. Kuhajte desetak minuta da tekućina ispari iz gljiva te se one blago karameliziraju. Ubacite u wok sjeckani češnjak, Gochujang, soja sos i sezamovo ulje. Promiješajte i kuhajte par minuta prije nego što u wok vratite meso.

U zdjelici razmutite kukuruzni škrob sa vodom. Kada se škrob skroz otopi, ulijte mješavinu u wok i sve jako dobro promiješajte. Maknite sve s vatre čim se umak zgusne. Poslužite preko kuhane riže, posipano sa sjeckanim stabljikama mladog luka.
