Mushroom and Cabbage Quick Fried Noodles (vegan) / Brzi prženi rezanci sa gljivama i kupusom (veganski)

There is a ton of stir-fry recipes on this blog already, but this one is my current favorite. It comes together super quickly, especially if you already have shredded cabbage and carrots prepared, which I usually do have rolling around the fridge. But even with those additional steps of shredding the veggies, this recipe will take up very little of your time.

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields 4 servings / 0.74 EUR per serving / 2.97 EUR for all)

3 ramen noodle squares (0.60 EUR)

3 tbsp sunflower seed oil (0.04 EUR)

1 large onion (0.10 EUR)

3 medium oyster mushroom clusters – around 250 grams in total (1.00 EUR)

2 cups shredded cabbage (0.13 EUR)

IMGP7254

METHOD:

Cook the noodles according to the package instructions to al dente, wash well under cold running water, drain and set aside. Peel and thinly slice the onion. Wipe the mushrooms with a damp kitchen towel and cut them into thin strips.

Place a deep skillet or a wok on medium heat and allow to thoroughly warm up. Add sunflower seed oil and onion slices to the hot pan and cook for a minute or two until translucent. Add in the mushrooms and after a few minutes dump in the cabbage with the carrots. If necessary add a splash of water to the pan, then cover with a lid and leave alone for 2-3 minutes, so the veggies wilt down. Uncover and throw in cooked and drained noodles, soy sauce, ketchup, sesame oil, sugar and red pepper flakes. Give everything a good stir to combine and cook for just a few minutes, so the noodles reheat and finish up cooking. Serve immediately.

Iako na tu na blogu već postoji hrpa recepata za jela iz woka, ovo mi je trenutno najdraže. Ovakav se obrok može jako brzo pripremiti, posebno ako već imate pri ruci naribane kupus i mrkvu, a što je u našem frižideru učestala pojava. Ali čak i ako morate poduzeti i dodatne korake ribanja povrća, priprema ovog jela oduzeti će vam veoma malo vremena.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 4 porcije / 5,58 kn po porciji / 22,30 kn za sve)

3 kocke ramen tjestenine (4,50 kn)

3 žlice suncokretovog ulja (0,30 kn)

1 veliki luk (0,75 kn)

3 osrednja ‘grozda’ bukovača – oko 250 g sve skupa (7,50 kn)

2 šalice ribanog kupusa (1,00 kn)

1 šalica ribane mrkve (3,00 kn)

3 žlice soja sosa (3,00 kn)

2 žlice kečapa (0,50 kn)

1 žličica tostiranog sezamovog ulja (1,00 kn)

1 žlica smeđeg šećera (0,25 kn)

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

PRIPREMA:

Tjesteninu skuhajte al dente prema uputama na pakiranju. Dobro ju operite pod mlazom hladne vode, ocijedite i stavite na stranu. Ogulite i tanko narežite luk. Bukovače prebrišite vlažnim kuhinjskim ručnikom i narežite na tanke trakice.

Duboku tavu ili wok stavite na srednje jaku vatru i pustite da se dobro ugriju. Na tako zagrijanu tavu dodajte suncokretovo ulje i luk, te ga kuhajte koju minutu da postane blago staklast. Bacite na luk gljive, a nakon par minuta i naribano zelje i mrkvu. Po potrebi dodajte mrvicu vode, a tavu poklopite i pustite jedno 2-3 minute dok povrće ne povene. Otklopite i dodajte kuhanu i ocijeđenu tjesteninu, soja sos, kečap, sezamovo ulje, šećer i čili. Sve dobro promiješajte da se sjedini i kuhajte samo par minuta, da se tjestenina ponovno zagrije i skuha do kraja. Poslužite odmah.

Gnocchi with Mixed Mushroom Sauce (vegetarian) / Njoki u umaku od miješanih gljiva (vegetarijanski)

I have a confession to make. I am a hoarder when it comes to our freezer. I often stash food in there like I am preparing for the apocalypse and usually won’t stop until the freezer is bursting at its seams. Luckily, we only have a small, three drawer freezer. But my ambitions definitely exceed its size. As it happens, the freezer needs periodical defrosting, so when that time arrives, I work my way through the frozen stash. Only to build a new one right after. And so the circle of life continues.

During the last defrosting venture I found a bag of sliced porcini, which my dad foraged in the forest sometime last autumn. I instantly envisaged a giant plate of gnocchi filled with creamy mushroom sauce.

IMGP7229

IMGP7224

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields 4 generous servings / 1.58 EUR / 6.31 EUR for all)

For the sauce:

3 tbsp sunflower seed oil (0.04 EUR)

2 onions (0.20 EUR)

2 tbsp butter (0.27 EUR)

250 grams porcini mushrooms (free – they were foraged!)

500 grams Portobello mushrooms (2.00 EUR)

½ tsp salt (0.01 EUR)

½ tsp freshly ground black pepper (0.03 EUR)

2 cups sour cream (1.07 EUR)

½ cup warm water (–)

1 cup shredded cheese (0.67 EUR)

For gnocchi:

Water (–)

Good pinch of salt (0.01 EUR)

1 tbsp sunflower seed oil (0.01 EUR)

1 kilo gnocchi (2.00 EUR)

IMGP7226

METHOD:

Peel and finely dice the onions. Wipe the mushrooms with a damp kitchen towel and cut into thin strips. Place a big pot on high heat and saute the onions on oil for about five minutes until translucent. Add in butter, mushrooms, salt and pepper, stir and cook until the mushrooms are cooked down a bit, for about 10 minutes. Turn the heat down and stir in sour cream, water and shredded cheese. Cook briefly while stirring constantly for just a few minutes, until the cheese is melted and the sauce is smooth and creamy.

At the same time while you’re making the sauce, place another pot of water on high heat for the gnocchi. Add in salt, oil and gnocchi when the water reaches a rolling boil and cook the gnocchi according to package instructions. Once done, drain and serve hot with the mushroom sauce.

Moram vam priznati da sam poprilični hoarder kada je u pitanju hrana u zamrzivaču. Često ga natrpam kao da se spremam za apokalipsu i ne stajem dok nam zamrzivač ne puca po šavovima. Srećom, imamo samo onaj mali sa tri ladice. No moje ambicije definitivno premašuju njegov kapacitet, a kao što to već biva, s vremena na vrijeme ga se treba i odlediti. Kada dođe do toga, trudim se iskoristiti i pojesti akumulirane zalihe. Samo da bi odmah napravila nove te se tako krug života nastavlja.

U zadnjoj akciji odleđivanja nabasala sam na vrećicu vrganja koje je moj tata prošle jeseni nabrao u šumi. Odmah sam imala viziju ogromnog tanjura njoka u umaku od gljiva.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 4 izdašne porcije / 11,79 kn po porciji / 47,17 kn za sve)

Za umak:

3 žlice suncokretovog ulja (0,30 kn)

2 luka (1,50 kn)

2 žlice maslaca (2,00 kn)

250 g vrganja (besplatni – nabrali smo ih sami!)

500 g šampinjona (15,00 kn)

½ žličice soli (0,01 kn)

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

2 šalice kiselog vrhnja (8,00 kn)

½ šalice tople vode (–)

1 šalica ribanog sira (5,00 kn)

Za njoke:

Voda (–)

Dobar prstohvat soli (0,01 kn)

1 žlica suncokretovog ulja (0,10 kn)

1 kg njoka (15,00 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Ogulite i fino nasjeckajte luk. Gljive obrišite vlažnim kuhinjskim ručnikom i narežite na tanke listiće. Stavite veliki lonac na jaku vatru i na ulju prodinstajte luk oko pet minuta dok ne bude staklast. Dodajte maslac, gljive, sol i papar, promiješajte, te kuhajte desetak minuta da se volumen gljiva smanji. Smanjite vatru i umiješajte kiselo vrhnje, vodu i ribani sir. Kuhajte uz stalno miješanje koju minutu dok se sir ne rastopi, a umak ne bude gladak i kremast.

Istovremeno dok pripremate umak, stavite još jedan lonac vode na jaku vatru za njoke. Čim voda zakipi dodajte sol, ulje i njoke, pa ih kuhajte prema uputama na pakiranju. Kada su njoki gotovi, ocijedite ih i poslužite vruće sa umakom od gljiva.

Mushroom and Veggie Fried Rice (vegetarian) / Pržena riža sa gljivama i povrćem (vegetarijanska)

Fried rice is one of my favorite dishes because it’s very quick and versatile. It’s a fabulous way to use up some odds and ends you have rolling around your fridge. Also, it’s sooo tasty. I could eat fried rice pretty much every day and never get tire of it.

METHOD:

First make the sauce by whisking together all of the ingredients until it’s all well incorporated and dissolved. Set aside. Wash, peel and finely dice all the veggies and mushrooms. In a small bowl whisk the eggs.

Add two tablespoons of sunflower seed oil to a wok or a pan on high heat and saute onion for a few minutes, until slightly translucent. Add in oyster mushrooms, cook briefly and then add in the Portobello mushrooms. After a minute or two dump in bell pepper and minced garlic. Stir-fry for a couple of minutes before adding in carrots. Once it all cooks down, push everything to one side, scraping the bottom of the pan clean.

Pour the remaining two tablespoons of oil to the free pan bottom, then add in whisked eggs to the oil. Cook the eggs for a minute or two, gently folding them over with a spatula until they are done. Stir everything together and add in the rice. Allow to reheat and slightly crisp up for a few minutes before pouring the sauce over everything. Give a good stir and serve immediately, sprinkled with sesame seeds.

Pržena riža mi je jedno od omiljenih jela jer je jako brza za spremiti i vrlo prilagodljiva. Ujedno je i super za iskoristiti sve ostatke koji vam se kotrljaju po frižideru. A da ne spominjem činjenicu koliko je samo fina. Što se mene tiče, prženu rižu mogu jesti svaki dan i nikada mi neće dosaditi.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 2 porcije / 12,48 kn po porciji / 24,95 kn za sve)

Za umak:

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

1 žlica tople vode (–)

1 žlica meda (1,00 kn)

2 žlice sojinog umaka (2,00 kn)

1 žličica tostiranog sezamovog ulja (1,00 kn)

1 žličica jabučnog octa (0,03 kn)

½ žličice kukuruznog škroba (0,02 kn)

Za wok:

4 žlice suncokretovog ulja (0,40 kn)

1 mali luk (0,50 kn)

2 velike bukovače (2,00 kn)

4 šampinjona (4,00 kn)

1 crvena paprika (4,00 kn)

4 češnja češnjaka (1,00 kn)

2 velike mrkve (3,00 kn)

2 jaja (3,00 kn)

2 šalice kuhane hladne riže (1,50 kn)

2 žlice sezama (1,00 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Prvo spremite umak tako da u maloj posudi dobro izmiješate sve sastojke dok se sve ne rastopi i sjedini. Stavite na stranu. Operite, ogulite i fino nasjeckajte svo povrće i gljive. U maloj zdjelici razmutite jaja.

Dvije žlice suncokreovog ulja dodajte u wok ili tavu, pa na jakoj vatri kratko prodinstajte luk dok ne postane staklast. Ubacite bukovače, kratko kuhajte, te dodajte i šampinjone. Nakon minutu-dvije dodajte papriku i sjeckani češnjak. Kuhajte uz miješanje nekoliko minuta prije nego što ubacite i mrkvu. Kada se sve kratko prokuha, pogurajte svo povrće i gljive na jednu stranu tave i dobro postružite sve sa dna.

Preostale dvije žlice ulja dodajte na prazni dio tave pa direktno na ulje ulijte razmućena jaja. Minutu-dvije kuhajte jaja, s time da ih špatulom nježno preklapajte sve dok ne budu gotova. Sada sve promiješajte te dodajte rižu. Pustite koju minutu da se riža ugrije i da se blago zahrska prije nego što sve zalijete pripremljenim umakom. Još jednom dobro promiješajte i odmah poslužite, posipano sezamom.

Vegan ”Meat” Sauce / Veganski ”mesni” umak

This sauce is super tasty and very easy and convenient to make. Therefore, ideal for lazy people like me. 😀 It also fooled a bunch of omnivores into thinking they were having something meaty, so it might be a great option for someone who is transitioning into vegan lifestyle.

Everything in this sauce is finely diced, but don’t be fooled. I used a food processor to do all the work for me. Just keep all of the ingredients separated once you process them, as you’re going to keep adding them to the sauce gradually.

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields 6 servings / 0.91 EUR per serving / 5.44 EUR for all)

3 tbsp sunflower seed oil (0.04 EUR)

1 large onion (0.10 EUR)

2 tbsp vegan butter (0.27 EUR)

4 garlic cloves (0.13 EUR)

1 tsp garlic powder (0.07 EUR)

1 bay leaf (0.01 EUR)

1 tbsp sweet Hungarian paprika (0.07 EUR)

1 tsp smoked paprika (0.07 EUR)

1 tsp dried basil (0.07 EUR)

1 tsp freshly cracked black pepper (0.07 EUR)

1 tsp salt (0.01 EUR)

4 carrots (0.40 EUR)

½ cup white wine (0.67 EUR)

2 tbsp dried parsley (0.13 EUR)

2 cups tomato puree (0.53 EUR)

½ cup water (–)

2 cups frozen peas (0.80 EUR)

IMGP7114

METHOD:

Wash, peel and run all veggies and mushrooms in a food processor to shred.Keep all of the ingredients separated. Add oil to a big pot and saute onion on high heat for a few minutes until slightly translucent. Throw in vegan butter, then gradually add in the mushrooms and briefly cook until their bulk reduces. Add fresh garlic, garlic powder, bay leaf, Hungarian and smoked paprika, basil,black pepper and salt.Stir and cook for about a minute so the spices release their aromas, then stir in the carrots. Let those cook to slightly caramelize before pouring in white wine. Cook for about five minutes until the alcohol evaporates. Add parsley, pour in tomato puree and water, then bring to a boil.

Once boiling, reduce heat to low and simmer with a lid cracked open for 30 minutes. Stir occasionally and if needed, add in a splash more of water. After 30 minutes add in frozen peas and cook for additional 5-10 minutes until peas are done. This sauce freezes and reheats great and will go awesome with pasta, rice, gnocchi or mashed potatoes.

Ovaj je umak jako ukusan, a veoma jednostavan za skuhati. Stoga je idealan za lijene ljude kao što sam ja. 😀 Također je i uspješno zavarao nekoliko svejeda da misle da jedu nešto mesno, pa bi bio dobra opcija i za nekoga tko prelazi na vegansku hranu.

Sve u umaku je fino nasjeckalo, ali nedajte se zavarati. Za sav posao zaslužan je moj multipraktik. Samo držite sve sastojke razdvojene nakon što ih usnitnite, jer ćete ih u umak dodavati postepeno.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 6 porcija / 6,78 kn po porciji / 40,66 kn za sve)

3 žlice suncokretovog ulja (0,30 kn)

1 veliki luk (0,75 kn)

2 žlice veganskog maslaca (2,00 kn)

500 g šampinjona (15,00 kn)

4 češnja češnjaka (1,00 kn)

1 žličica češnjaka u prahu (0,50 kn)

1 lovorov list (0,10 kn)

1 žlica slatke crvene paprike (0,50 kn)

1 žličica dimljene paprike (0,50 kn)

1 žličica sušenog bosiljka (0,50 kn)

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

1 žličica soli (0,01 kn)

4 mrkve (3,00 kn)

½ šalice bijelog vina (5,00 kn)

2 žlice sušenog peršina (1,00 kn)

2 šalice pasirane rajčice (4,00 kn)

½ šalice vode (–)

2 šalice smrznutog graška (6,00 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Operite, ogulite, te usnitnite svo povrće i gljive u multipraktiku. Sve sastojke držite odvojenima. Stavite ulje u veliki lunac, pa na jakoj vatri par minuta dinstajte luk dok ne postane staklast. Dodajte maslac, pa postepeno dodajte gljive i kratko ih prokuhajte da im se smanji volumen. Sada ubacite svježi češnjak i onaj u prahu, kao i lovor, slatku i dimljenu papriku, bosiljak, papar i sol. Promiješajte i kuhajte minutu da začini otpuste svoje arome, pa umiješajte mrkvu. Pustite da se sve blago karamelizira prije nego podlijete vinom. Kuhajte oko pet minuta da alkohol ispari, a onda dodajte peršin, pasiranu rajčicu i vodu te pustite da zavrije.

Kada sve zavrije smanjite vatru i krčkajte sa odškrinutim poklopcem oko 30 minuta. Povremeno promiješajte, a po potrebi dodajte mrvicu vode. Nakon 30 minuta dodajte smrznuti grašak, te kuhajte još 5-10 minuta dok grašak ne bude gotov. Ovaj se umak super podgrijava i smrzava, a odlično paše uz tjesteninu, rižu, njoke ili pire krumpir.

Mushroom Phyllo Rolls (vegetarian) / Burekići s gljivama (vegetarijanski)

I’ve been meaning to produce some handmade phyllo dough for ages, but felt super intimidated because it all seemed like an insanely laborious task. Well, I was wrong. The dough came together super quickly and was unbelievably tasty. I’ve been expecting to spend hours in the kitchen, but when it all came together I was like: “Wow, so this is it?!” And the taste?! It was AMAZING! I’m already thinking of making a batch with potatoes.

IMGP7097

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields 6 rolls / 0.23 EUR per roll / 1.36 EUR for all)

For the dough:

2 cups all-purpose flour (0.13 EUR)

1 ½ tsp salt (0.01 EUR)

3 tbsp sunflower seed oil (0.04 EUR)

¾ cup lukewarm water (–)

2 tbsp butter, softened at room temperature (0.27 EUR)

For the mushroom filling:

1 small onion (0.07 EUR)

6-8 medium Portobello mushrooms (0.60 EUR)

Good pinch of salt (0.01 EUR)

Good pinch of freshly ground black pepper (0.03 EUR)

3 tbsp sour cream (0.20 EUR)

IMGP7106

IMGP7107

METHOD:

Make the dough by mixing together one cup of flour, salt, oil and water. When everything is uniform, gradually start adding the remaining flour and knead the dough until it becomes smooth and will no longer stick to your hands. Tightly wrap in cling foil and leave to rest at room temperature for 20 minutes.

After 20 minutes knead the dough once more and divide into 6 parts and form them into balls. Place a small piece of butter on each dough ball and gently massage it around the dough. You don’t want the butter penetrating the dough at this point, but rather you want the balls coated on all sides. Leave the dough to rest uncovered, again at room temperature, but this time for 30 minutes.

While the dough is resting prepare the filling by finely dicing onion and mushrooms. Mix with salt, pepper and sour cream and set aside. When ready to bake, preheat the oven to 200°C and line a baking tray with parchment paper.

Using your hands, flatten the dough and gently pull it, starting from the center towards the edges and forming it into a thin and nearly transparent sheet. The thinner the dough, the tastier the rolls will be. All the resting and the fats will make the dough super elastic, so it won’t break that easily. If you want, you can cut out and discard the thicker edges, but I decided to keep them as they turned out super crunchy. Sprinkle about two tablespoons of mushroom filling on a single dough sheet, roll the dough into a sausage and then wrap it around itself to shape into a roll. Place on a prepared baking tray and repeat with the remaining dough and filling.

Bake for 40-45 minutes, until crispy and golden brown. Serve warm, with a nice big salad and a glass of cold yogurt. These keep fairly well and will taste just as good on the second day, if stored in an airtight container in the meantime and reheated just before serving.

Već duže vremena namjeravam napraviti svoje kore za burek, ali mi se taj pothvat uvijek činio kao nešto zastrašujuće koji zahtijeva ogromnu količinu posla. E pa ispalo je da sam bila u krivu. Tijesto je zapravo gotovo za čas i ispalo je super fino. Očekivala sam da ću u kuhinji provesti par sati, ali onda kada sam sve zgotovila mislila sam si: „Ha? To je to?!“ A tek okus?! Bio je FANTASTIČAN! I već sada smišljam da napravim rundu sa krumpirom.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 6 burekića / 1,68 kn po bureku / 10,08 kn za sve)

Za tijesto:

2 šalice glatkog brašna (1,00 kn)

1 ½ žličica soli (0,02 kn)

3 žlice suncokretovog ulja (0,30 kn)

¾ šalice mlake vode (–)

2 žlice maslaca, omekšanog na sobnoj temperaturi (2,00 kn)

Za nadjev od gljiva:

1 mali luk (0,50 kn)

6-8 srednjih šampinjona (4,50 kn)

Dobar prstohvat soli (0,01 kn)

Dobar prstohvat sveže mljevenog crnog papra (0,25 kn)

3 žlice kiselog vrhnja (1,50 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Napravite tijesto tako da pomiješate šalicu brašna sa soli, uljem i vodom. Kada se sve sjedini, postepeno dodajte preostalo brašno, a tijesto mijesite sve dok ne bude glatko i prestane vam se lijepiti za ruke. Tijesto dobro zamojtate u prijanjajuću foliju i ostavite da odmara na sobnoj temperaturi oko 20 minuta.

Nakon 20 minuta još jednom promijesite tijesto i podijelite ga na 6 jednakih dijelova od kojih formirajte loptice. Na svaku lopticu stavite komadić maslaca, pa ga nježno rukama promasirajte po tijestu. Ne morate ići za time da maslac uđe u tijesto, već želite samo da je loptica sa svih strana dobro namašćena. Ostavite da tijesto miruje nepokriveno, ponovo na sobnoj temperaturi, ali ovoga puta 30 minuta.

Dok tijesto odmara pripremite nadjev. Sitno nasjeckate luk i gljive, te ih pomiješajte sa soli, paprom i kiselim vrhnjem. Stavite na stranu. Kada ste spremni za pečenje, zagrijte pećnicu na 200°C i obložite protvan papirom za pečenje.

Rukama spljoštite lopticu tijesta pa ju nježno razvucite, krečući od sredine prema rubovima, sve dok ne dobijete tanku i gotovo prozirnu plahtu. Što je tijesto tanje, to će burek biti finiji, no zbog odmaranja i masnoće tijesto će biti elastično i neće baš tako lako pucati. Po želji možete odrezati debele rubove, no ja sam ih odlučila ostaviti i ispali su super hrskavi. Oko dvije žlice nadjeva rasporedite po razvučenom tijesti, pa zarolajte u kobasicu. Omotajte tijesto samo oko sebe u oblik puža. Stavite burekić na pripremljeni protvan i ponavljajte sa preostalim tijestom i nadjevom.

Pecite oko 40-45 minuta, dok burekići ne postanu hrskavi i zlatno smeđi. Poslužite toplo, sa velikom salatom i možda čašom hladnog jogurta. Burekići mogu držati i drugi dan ako ih čuvate hermetički zatvorene, a prije posluživanja zagrijete.

Enhanced Cream of Mushroom Soup / Nabrijana krem juha od gljiva

Let’s be real. On some days you just wanna slouch in your pajamas and shovel down frozen pizza or instant ramen. I’ve been there. Most of my work week summons up such feelings. That’s why I do majority of serious cooking on the weekend.

Furthermore, I still try to eat something substantial even on those days of absolute sloth. And this soup is a middle ground. It packs a bunch of good things, but uses prepacked cream of mushroom soup (I used a Knorr sachet) to make life more simple. For some substance I also dumped in a bunch of precooked rye I had lying around. But really, simple rice or any other grain will work here, as will potatoes or lentils. Just throw in whatever you have on hand.

METHOD:

Finely dice onions, mince garlic and thinly slice mushrooms. Saute onions on olive oil on high heat for a few minutes, until translucent. Throw in garlic and cook for a minute or two. Add in butter and mushrooms, season with salt and pepper, then cook for a few minutes to reduce the bulk of mushrooms. Finally add in rye, water and soup powder. Give a good stir until everything is even and there are no lumps floating around. Bring to a boil and cook according to the instructions on the soup sachet – mine took about five minutes.

Budimo skroz realistični. Ima dana kada samo želite ljenčariti u pidžami, a u usta lopatati pizzu ili instant tjesteninu. Takvo stanje nije mi ni malo strano. Zapravo, većina mojeg radnog tjedna priziva te osjećaje. Radi toga ono ozbiljnije kuhanje obavim uglavnom preko vikenda.

Također, trudim se pojesti nešto koliko-toliko zdravo čak i kada me obuzmu ti dani apsolutne lijenosti. Ova juha je nekakva zlatna sredina. U njoj je natrpano i dosta dobrih stvari, ali je, da si olakšam život, baza krem juha od gljiva iz vrećice (ja sam upotrijebila Knorr). Da obrok bude zasitniji, u juhu sam ubacila i kuhanu raž koju sam već ranije imala spremnu. Naravno, ovdje će poslužiti i najobičnija riža ili koja druga žitarica, kao i krumpiri ili leća. Samo dodajte ono što vam je pri ruci.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 6 porcija / 5,50 kn po porciji / 32,98 kn za sve)

4 žlice maslinovog ulja (1,32 kn)

2 velika luka (1,50 kn)

4 češnja češnjaka (1,00 kn)

2 žlice maslaca (2,00 kn)

500 grama šampinjona (15,00 kn)

Dobar prstohvat soli (0,01 kn)

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

2 šalice kuhane raži (3,00 kn)

6 šalica vode (–)

1 vrećica krem juhe od gljiva po izboru (8,00 kn)

2 žlice sjeckanog svježeg peršina (1,00 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Fino nasjeckajte luk i češnjak, a gljive narežite na tanke listiće. Prodinstajte luk na maslinovom ulju na jakoj vatri dok ne postane staklast. Ubacite češnjak, pa kuhajte minutu-dvije. Dodajte maslac i gljive, začinite solju i paprom, te kuhajte nekoliko minuta da se volumen gljiva smanji. Konačno, ubacite i raž, vodu te juhu iz vrećice. Dobro promiješajte dok sve ne bude jednolično i bez grudica. Pustite da zavrije pa kuhajte prema uputama na pakiranju juhe. Moja je bila gotova za pet minuta. Umiješajte sjeckani peršin i poslužite.

Enhanced Cream of Mushroom Soup / Nabrijana krem juha od gljiva

Creamy Mushroom Sauce / Kremasti umak od gljiva

I’m not gonna lie to you, this mushroom sauce isn’t something you should be eating while dieting. It’s super rich and tasty, but has enough fat in it to clog up any artery. However, for special occasions it’s an absolute must. Also, a few tablespoons will go a long way, so don’t be appalled by the amounts of butter and crème fraîche.

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields 4 servings / 0.97 EUR per serving / 3.87 EUR for all)

3 tbsp olive oil (0.13 EUR)

1 large onion (0.10 EUR)

500 grams Portobello mushrooms (2.00 EUR)

4 tbsp butter (0.53 EUR)

Good pinch of salt (0.01 EUR)

Good pinch of freshly ground black pepper (0.03 EUR)

1 cup crème fraîche (0.80 EUR)

1 tbsp chopped fresh chives (0.27 EUR)

IMGP6766

METHOD:

Peel and finely dice the onion. Wash and thinly slice the mushrooms. Sauté diced onion on olive oil on high heat for about 10 minutes, until slightly caramelized. Throw in sliced mushrooms and butter, season with salt and pepper, and give a good stir. Cook the mushrooms for 15-20 minutes, until all of the water evaporates and mushrooms start browning and slightly crisping up. Reduce the heat to low and add in crème fraîche. Stir well to incorporate and add in a splash of water if necessary. Cook briefly, just to heat through, but don’t allow it to start boiling because the fats will start separating. Serve immediately over meat, potatoes or rice, sprinkled with fresh chives.

Neću vam lagati – ovaj umak nije nešto što bi ste trebali jesti dok ste na dijeti. Jako je bogat i ukusan, ali ima dovoljno masnoća da začepi bilo koju arteriju. Međutim, za neku specijalnu priliku je apsolutno obavezan. Osim toga, par žlica će biti i više nego dovoljno, pa se nemojte frapirati količinom maslaca i milerama.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 4 porcije / 7,25 kn po porciji / 29,00 kn za sve)

3 žlice maslinovog ulja (0.99 kn)

1 veliki luk (0,75 kn)

500 g šampinjona (15,00 kn)

4 žlice maslaca (4,00 kn)

Dobar prstohvat soli (0,01 kn)

Dobar prstohvat svježe mljevenog crnog papra (0,25 kn)

1 šalica milerama (6,00 kn)

1 žlica svježeg nasjeckanog vlasca (2,00 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Ogulite i fino nasjeckajte luk. Operite i narežite gljive na tanke listiće. Na jakoj vatri desetak minuta dinstajte luk na maslinovom ulju, dok se lagano ne karamelizira. Ubacite gljive i maslac, začinite solju i paprom, te dobro promiješajte. Kuhajte gljive 15-20 minuta, dok sva voda ne ispari, a gljive se lagano ne zahrskaju. Skroz smanjite vatru i dodajte mileram. Dobro promiješajte da se sve sjedini, a po potrebi razrijedite sa mrvicom vode. Kratko kuhajte, samo da se umak ugrije, ali pazite da ne zavrije jer će se masnoće početi razdvajati. Odmah poslužite preko mesa, krumpira ili riže, posipano sa svježim vlascem.
