Quick Spicy Noodles (vegan) / Brzi pikantni kineski rezanci (veganski)

You’re craving Chinese takeout and you want it now? No problem! This dish comes together even quicker than it would take the delivery to arrive and it’s actually quite healthy. But at the same time so, so yum! With only a few pantry staples, you’ll be whipping these noodles up in no time.

Just a little heads up, though. This recipe calls for mushroom powder, which are basically dried mushrooms ground into a fine powder in your food processor. I’ve already written about its magic in this recipe here, so be sure to check it out if you’re curious about more mushroom powder recipes.

Ako vam se jede neka kineska dostava i to baš sad sad, nema uopće problema. Ovo jelo ćete sami prirediti i brže nego vam dostavljač uspije pozvoniti na vrata, a još je uz to i prilično zdravo. I ne samo to, nego i jaaaako fino. Uz samo par sastojaka iz špajze, ove ćete nudlse zgotoviti za čas.

Samo još mala napomena. U ovom receptu ima i praška od gljiva, a to su samo sušene gljive samljevene u fini prah u vašem multipraktiku. O tom sam čarobnom sastojku već pisala u ranijem receptu ovdje, pa definitivno i njega čekirajte ako želite još neke ideje za prašak od gljiva.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 2 izdašne porcije / 12,10 kn po porciji / 24,20 kn za sve)

3 kocke kineskih rezanaca (12,00 kn)

2 žlice suncokretovog ulja (0,20 kn)

1 luk (0,75 kn)

1 crvena paprika (3,00 kn)

3 češnja češnjaka (0,75 kn)

1 žličica tostiranog sezamovog ulja (1,00 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Operite, ogulite i nasjeckajte svo povrće. Rezance skuhajte al dente prema uputama na pakiranju, isperite pod hladnom vodom i stavite na stranu. Ulje dodajte u wok na jakoj vatri, pa ubacite luk i papriku. Kuhajte par minuta da omekšaju, te onda ubacite češnjak i Gochujang. Kratko promiješajte i pustite da se začini ugriju prije nego dodate kupus, prašak od gljiva, vodu, rezance i soja sos. Pustite da zavrije, pa kuhajte par minuta dok višak tekućine ne ispari, a tjestenina ne bude skroz kuhana. Maknite s vatre, umiješajte sezamovo ulje i odmah poslužite.

Chicken and Veggie Noodles / Kineski rezanci s piletinom i povrćem

I’m always, and I really mean always, down for some Chinese food. If there were no health and financial consequences, I would gladly agree to live on Chinese takeout until the end of time or the end of my days, whichever comes first. But reason dictates that some compromises have to be made, so I often replicate my favorite stir-fry and noodle recipes at home and try to keep them on a relatively healthier side. If you are a Chinese food fiend like me, definitely try out this recipe and you won’t be disappointed.

IMGP8512

IMGP8510

INGREDIENTS:

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

For the chicken:

1 large boneless skinless chicken breast (2.00 EUR)

1 tbsp sunflower seed oil (0.01 EUR)

1 tbsp soy sauce (0.07 EUR)

Good pinch of salt (0.01 EUR)

Good pinch of freshly ground black pepper (0.02 EUR)

For the stir-fry:

3 squares of Chinese noodles (1.60 EUR)

2 tbsp sunflower seed oil, divided (0.03 EUR)

2 onions (0.20 EUR)

2 red peppers (0.80 EUR)

3 garlic cloves (0.10 EUR)

1 tsp Gochujang – Korean chili paste (0.13 EUR)

2 tbsp soy sauce (0.13 EUR)

1 tsp toasted sesame oil (0.13 EUR)

IMGP8508

METHOD:

Cut the chicken into thin strips. Toss it with oil, soy sauce, salt and pepper and leave to rest in the fridge for at least 30 minutes, but best overnight. In the meantime, cook the noodles according to package instructions to al dente. Rinse under cold water to get rid of residual heat and stop the cooking process, then drain. Wash, peel and chop up all the veggies.

Place a wok or a deep skillet on medium high heat and allow to thoroughly warm up. Add in a bit of oil, then fry the chicken until crispy. It’s best to do this in two batches, so you don’t overcrowd the pan. Remove all the chicken from the wok and set aside. Add in the remaining oil and dump in the onions and peppers. Cook for a few minutes to slightly caramelize before adding in minced garlic and Gochujang. Give a good stir and cook briefly. Dump in the noodles, chicken, soy sauce and sesame oil. Cook for about five minutes, until everything is thoroughly warmed up and the noodles at the bottom of the pan start crisping up slightly. Serve immediately.

Ja sam uvijek, ali baš ono, uvijek, raspoložena za kinesku hranu. Da to nema nikakvih zdravstvenih i financijskih posljedica, krkala bi klopu sa kineske dostave dok svemir ne implodira ili dok ja ne otegnem, štogod već došlo prije. Ali razum ipak nalaže neke kompromise pa sam se naučila da svoje najdraže recepte izrepliciram doma u nekoj malo zdravijoj varijanti. Ako ste ludi za kineskom hranom koliko i ja, definitivno isprobajte ovaj recept jer se nećete razočarati.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 4 porcije / 9,80 kn po porciji / 39,21 kn za sve)

Za meso:

1 velika pileća prsa bez kostiju i kože (15,00 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:

3 kocke kineskih rezanaca (12,00 kn)

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

2 luka (1,50 kn)

2 crvene paprike (6,00 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)

PRIPREMA:

Piletinu narežite na tanke trakice. Pomiješajte sa uljem, soja sosom, soli i paprom, te ostavite u hladnjaku da se marinira minimalno pola sata, a najbolje preko noći. U međuvremenu skuhajte rezance prema uputama na pakiranju da budu al dente. Isperite ih dobro pod mlazom hladne vode da se prestanu kuhati od zaostale topline te ocijedite. Operite, ogulite i nasjeckajte svo povrće.

Wok ili duboku tavu stavite na srednje jaku vatru i pustite da se dobro ugrije. Dodajte malo ulja, pa na njemu ispržite piletinu dok ne bude hrskava. Za najbolje rezultate je najbolje to napraviti u dvije manje ture kako vam wok ne bi bio prenatrpan. Gotovu piletinu maknite iz woka i stavite na stranu. Dodajte u wok preostalo ulje, luk i paprike. Kuhajte oko pet minuta, da se povrće lagano karamelizira, pa onda ubacite sjeckani češnjak i Gochujang. Dobro promiješajte i još kratko kuhajte te dodajte tjesteninu, piletinu, soja sos i sezamovo ulje. Kuhajte jedno pet minuta da se sve dobro ugrije, a tjestenina na dnu woka blago zahrska. Poslužite odmah.

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.

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.
