Vegan Minced ‘’Meat’’ (soy free, gluten free, paleo) / Vegansko mljeveno ”meso” (bez soje, bez glutena, paleo)

This vegan minced ‘’meat’’ concoction is my new favorite thing! It’s super easy to make, really inexpensive and very versatile. You can do a whole ton of things with it, like regular burgers, Bolognese sauce and even Sloppy Joe burgers, so expect to see these recipes soon. I bet it would also be a great base for vegan lasagna or moussaka and am eager to give those a try as well.

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields 4 cups / 0.66 EUR per cup / 2.63 EUR for all)

7-8 big Portobello mushrooms (1.33 EUR)

3 carrots (0.30 EUR)

1 small onion (0.07 EUR)

2 garlic cloves (0.07 EUR)

Large handful of fresh parsley (0.27 EUR)

2 tbsp olive oil (0.09 EUR)

2 tbsp ketchup (0.07 EUR)

1 tsp smoked paprika (0.07 EUR)

½ tsp garlic powder (0.03 EUR)

½ tsp salt (0.01 EUR)

½ tsp freshly ground black pepper (0.03 EUR)

Good pinch red pepper flakes (0.02 EUR)

1 cup ground flax seed (0.27 EUR)

IMGP7399

IMGP7405

METHOD:

Wash, peel and roughly chop all the veggies and mushrooms. Throw all of the ingredients except for flax seeds into a food processor and pulse until still a bit chunky, but well combined. Finally stir in ground flax seeds by hand. If things appear a bit too mushy, feel free to add more flax seeds, as this is a very flexible recipe.

You can store the raw mixture in the fridge for up to two days. I wouldn’t push it past that, as the mushrooms could get funky.

To make regular old burgers, shape the mixture into the patties. I suggest freezing them for half an hour before you go and pan fry them, as they will hold shape better. Alternatively, you can also bake them in an oven on a sheet pan for about 30 minutes at 200°C, but they will probably be quite soft in the end due to all the water in the mushrooms, so handle them very gently. Nevertheless, they are gonna be delicious.

Recipes for Sloppy Joes and Bolognese sauce utilizing this mix are coming up, so keep an eye on this blog if you’re interested.

Ovaj pripravak za vegansko mljeveno ”meso” mi je nova najdraža stvar! Jako je jednostavan za pripremiti, jeftin i prilagodljiv. Osim toga, s time kasnije možete izvesti hrpu zanimljivih stvari, kao napraviti klasične burgere, bolonjez umak, pa i Sloppy Joe burgere, a recepti za to slijede ubrzo. Također, kladim se da bi ovo bila super baza i za veganske lazanje ili musaku, a nadam se da ću ubrzo imati vremena i sve to isprobati.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 4 šalice / 4,89 kn po šalici / 19,57 kn za sve)

7-8 velikih šampinjona (10,00 kn)

3 mrkve (2,25 kn)

1 mali luk (0,50 kn)

2 češnja češnjaka (0,50 kn)

Veliki pregršt svježeg peršina (2,00 kn)

2 žlice maslinovog ulja (0,66 kn)

2 žlice kečapa (0,50 kn)

1 žličica dimljene crvene paprike (0,50 kn)

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

½ žličice soli (0,01 kn)

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

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

1 šalica mljevenih sjemenki lana (2,00 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Operite, ogulite i grubo nasjeckajte svo povrće i gljive. Sve sastojke osim lana ubacite u multipraktik i pulsirate dok ne dobijete smjesu u kojoj će ostati još nešto krupnijih komadića, ali će sve biti dobro izmiješano. Za kraj rukom umiješajte lan. Ako vam se sve čini pregnjecavo, slobodno dodajte još lana, pošto je ovo jako fleksibilan recept.

Gotovu smjesu možete čuvati u hladnjaku do dva dana, ali ja baš ne bih riskirala dulje od toga jer bi se gljive mogle pokvariti.

Da pripremite klasične burgere, formirajte smjesu u pljeskavice. Ako ćete ih peći u tavi, moja je sugestija da ih prije toga ubacite u zamrzivač na jedno pola sata, pošto će tako bolje držati oblik. Također, burgere možete ispeći i u pećnici na protvanu, i to 30 minuta na 200°C, s time da će ispasti prilično mekani radi vode u gljivama, pa rukujte njima jako nježno. Bez obzira na to, biti će super fini.

Recepti za Sloppy Joe burgere i bolonjez umak od ove smjese slijede uskoro, pa ako ste zainteresirani navratite kroz koji dan ponovo na ovaj blog.

Spinach and Mushroom Creamy Quinoa (vegetarian) / Kremasta kvinoja sa špinatom i gljivama (vegetarijanska)

I’ve promised more quinoa recipes, ever since my grand discovery of quinoa a few weeks back, and lo and behold, I am here to deliver. This dish is very scrumptious, but is loaded with plenty of healthy things for a good measure. It also comes together super fast.

Kada sam pred nekoliko tjedana doživjela epohalno otkriće kvinoje, obećala sam vam još recepata. Ta-da, evo ga kako sam i najavila! Ovo jelo je jako bogato i ukusno, ali također ima i dovoljno zdravih sastojaka za dobru mjeru, te se osim toga i veoma brzo priprema.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 4 porcije / 8,49 kn po porciji / 33,96 kn za sve)

2 žlice suncokretovog ulja (0,20 kn)

1 luk (0,75 kn)

2 žlice maslaca (2,00 kn)

250 g šampinjona (7,50 kn)

1 žličica soli (0,01 kn)

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

1 šalica sirove kvinoje (15,00 kn)

½ šalice kiselog vrhnja (2,00 kn)

½ šalice ribanog sira (2,50 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Ogulite i fino nasjeckajte luk te tanko narežite gljive. Isperite kvinoju u finoj cjediljci pod tekućom vodom i stavite na stranu. Ulje stavite u veći lonac na jakoj vatri, te dinstajte luk dok ne postane staklast. Dodajte maslac, gljive, sol i papar i sve dobro promiješajte. Kuhajte nekoliko minuta, dok se gljive malo ne iskuhaju.

Sada ubacite ispranu kvinoju i vodu. Pustite da zavrije, smanjite vatru, te krčkajte sa odškrinutim poklopcem 15 minuta. Nakon 15 minuta umiješajte i smrznuti špinat, te krčkajte još pet minuta da se špinat odmrzne. Za kraj umiješajte kiselo vrhnje i sir, te odmah poslužite.

Minced Chicken, Mushroom and Veggie Stir-Fry with Peanut Sauce / Mljevena piletina, gljive i povrće iz woka u umaku od kikirikija

This is basically the same sauce from this cauliflower recipe. It was so good that I just had to have more of it. The stir-fry is greatly improvised from what we had around the fridge. I think some spring onion would be awesome here, but unfortunately we didn’t have any. Just the same, the recipe turned out delicious.

IMGP7230

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields 4 servings / 1.31 EUR per serving / 5.23 EUR for all)

For the peanut sauce:

2 tbsp soy sauce (0.27 EUR)

2 tbsp warm water (–)

1 tbsp peanut butter (0.13 EUR)

1 tbsp sugar (0.01 EUR)

½ tsp corn starch (0.01 EUR)

1 tsp toasted sesame oil (0.13 EUR)

½ tsp salt (0.01 EUR)

½ tsp red pepper flakes (0.03 EUR)

For the stir-fry:

3 tbsp sunflower seed oil (0.04 EUR)

2 cups minced chicken (2.00 EUR)

2 tbsp soy sauce (0.27 EUR)

Good pinch of salt (0.01 EUR)

Good pinch of freshly ground black pepper (0.02 EUR)

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

2 carrots (0.20 EUR)

3 red horn peppers (1.00 EUR)

1 large onion (0.10 EUR)

IMGP7243

METHOD:

First prepare the peanut sauce by whisking all of the ingredients on low heat until peanut butter and corn starch are completely dissolved and then bring to a gentle simmer. Cook for a few minutes, while stirring constantly so the sauce thickens a bit. Keep the sauce warm while you prepare the rest.

Wash, peel and chop all the vegetables and mushrooms, while keeping the ingredients separated. Place a deep pan or a wok on high heat for a few minutes until thoroughly heated through. Add in sunflower seed oil, minced chicken, soy sauce, salt and black pepper. Stir well to incorporate and break the chicken in small chunks with a spatula. Stir-fry for a few minutes, until chicken is thoroughly cooked through. Then gradually add in chopped mushrooms, carrots, red peppers and onion in this exact order, taking the time to cook every ingredient for a few minutes before throwing in the new one. When all is done, pour in the peanut sauce on top and give a good stir. Serve immediately over a bed of cooked rice.

Umak u ovom jelu je u principu isti onaj iz recepta sa karfijolom jer mi je bio tako fini da sam jednostavno morala imati još. Kombinacija za wok je uvelike improvizirana od stvari koje smo imali doma po frižideru. Mislim da bi mladi luk super pasao u ovom jelu, ali mi ga na žalost nismo imali doma. Svejedno, jako sam zadovoljna sa time kako je ovaj recept na kraju ispao.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 4 porcije / 9,76 kn po porciji / 39,05 kn za sve)

Za umak od kikirikija:

2 žlice soja sosa (2,00 kn)

2 žlice tople vode (–)

1 žlica kikiriki maslaca (1,00 kn)

1 žlica šećera (0,05 kn)

½ žličice kukuruznog škroba (0,03 kn)

1 žličica tostiranog sezamovog ulja (1,00 kn)

½ žličice soli (0,01 kn)

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

Za wok:

3 žlice suncokretovog ulja (0,30 kn)

2 šalice mljevene piletine (15,00 kn)

2 žlice soja sosa (2,00 kn)

Dobar prstohvat soli (0,01 kn)

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

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

2 mrkve (1,50 kn)

3 crvene paprike roge (7,50 kn)

1 veliki luk (0,75 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Prvo priredite umak od kikirikija tako da na slaboj vatri miješate sve sastojke, sve dok se maslac od kikirikija i kukuruzni škrob do kraja ne rastope. Pustite da sve lagano zavrije, te kuhajte nekoliko minuta uz stalno miješanje, tako da se umak zgusne. Držite umak na toplom dok pripremite sve ostalo.

Operite, ogulite i nasjeckajte svo povrće i gljive, no sve sastojke držite razdvojene. Stavite duboku tavu ili wok na jaku vatru i pustite par minuta da se dobro ugrije. Ubacite u wok suncokretovo ulje, meso, soja sos, sol i papar. Dobro promiješajte te piletinu usitnite špatulom. Kuhajte nekoliko minuta, dok meso ne bude skroz gotovo. Sada jedno po jedno ovim redoslijedom dodajte nasjeckane gljive, mrkve, paprike i luk, s time da pustite par minuta prije nego ubacite idući sastojak kako bi se sve dobro skuhalo. Kada je sve gotovo, zalijte umakom od kikirikija i dobro promiješajte. Poslužite odmah preko kuhane riže.

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.

IMGP7249

IMGP7251

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)

1 cup shredded carrots (0.40 EUR)

3 tbsp soy sauce (0.40 EUR)

2 tbsp ketchup (0.07 EUR)

1 tsp toasted sesame oil (0.13 EUR)

1 tbsp brown sugar (0.03 EUR)

1 tsp red pepper flakes (0.07 EUR)

IMGP7253

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.

1 tbsp honey (0.13 EUR)

2 tbsp soy sauce (0.27 EUR)

1 tsp toasted sesame oil (0.13 EUR)

1 tsp apple cider vinegar (0.01 EUR)

½ tsp corn starch (0.01 EUR)

For the stir-fry:

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.

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

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.

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.
