Braised Sauerkraut with Sausage and Potatoes / Dinstano kiselo zelje sa kobasicom i krumpirima

If you are a fan of sauerkraut and quick meals, definitely give this one a go. I’ve had some homemade sauerkraut on hand to use up in this dish and it turned out fantastic. My sauerkraut was a combo of cabbage and carrots which gave the dish some additional sweetness. It all paired really well with smoky sausages and I can’t wait to make this again. Also, since my sauerkraut was pretty salty, no additional salt was needed in the dish.

Ako ste ljubitelj kiselog zelja i brzih jela, definitivno isprobajte recept u nastavku. Ja sam upotrijebila svoje domaće kiselo zelje i konačni je rezultat ispao savršen. Također, u mojem je zelju bilo i malo ribane mrkve koja je jelu dala još malo ekstra slatkoće. Sve se to odlično sparilo sa dimljenim kobasicama i jedva čekam ponovno pripremiti ovaj recept. Također, pošto je moje zelje bilo dosta slano, uopće ništa nije trebalo dodatno soliti.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 4 porcije / 5,04 kn po porciji / 20,15 kn za sve)

2 žlice suncokretovog ulja (0,20 kn)

1 veliki luk (0,75 kn)

1 srednje velika kobasica (7,50 kn)

2 šalice kiselog kupusa (3,00 kn)

2 žlice koncentrata od rajčice (2,00 kn)

½ žličice dimljene paprike (0,25 kn)

1 žličica slatke crvene paprike (0,25 kn)

½ žličice češnjaka u prahu (0,25 kn)

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

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

1 žlica sušenog peršina (0,50 kn)

1 žličica smeđeg šećera (0,10 kn)

1 lovorov list (0,10 kn)

4 veća krumpira (3,00 kn)

2 šalice povrtnog temeljca (1,00 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Operite, ogulite i nasjeckajte svo povrće. Kobasicu narežite na tanke novčiće. Ulje i luk stavite u dublju tavu na srednjoj vatri te dinstajte nekoliko minuta da luk postane staklast. Ubacite kobasicu, zelje i češnjak, promiješajte te kratko kuhajte dok se sve blago ne karamelizira. Sada dodajte koncentrat rajčice, dimljenu i slatku papriku, češnjak u prahu, čili, papar, peršin, šećer, lovor, krumpire i temeljac. Dobro promiješajte, pustite da zavrije, pa smanjite vatru. Krčkajte sa odškrinutim poklopcem 30-tak minuta dok se krumpiri skroz ne skuhaju i ne omekšaju, s time da s vremena na vrijeme sve dobro promiješate, a prema potrebi dodate još mrvicu vode. Poslužite toplo.

Već i vrapci na granama znaju da obožavam jela koja se kuhaju u jednom loncu i obožavam tjesteninu. Stoga tjestenina iz jednog lonca kotira prilično visoko na ljestvici mojih životnih prioriteta. Špageti Puttanesca kao koncept postoje već preko pedeset godina, a ovo je moja verzija talijanskog klasika.

U međuvremenu nasjeckajte inčune i sušene rajčice, češnjak narežite na tanke ploške, te grubo narežite masline.

Kad se cherry rajčice karameliziraju u tavu dodajte inčune, sušene rajčice, češnjak, masline, čili i origano. Kuhajte koju minutu da sve zamiriši prije nego ubacite i špagete, sol, papar i vodu. Vodite računa o tome da su špageti potopljeni, pa pustite da sve zavrije i čvrsto poklopite. Smanjite vatru i krčkajte 10-15 minuta dok špageti ne budu gotovi, a povremeno sve dobro promiješajte. Po potrebi dodajte još mrvicu vode.

Poslužite odmah sa dobrom dozom ribanog tvrdog sira tipa parmezan ili Grana Padano.

Dani su sve hladniji i jesen nam je stigla, a to znači da mi se jede fina i topla hrana za dušu. A ne znam što bi bolje upalo u tu kategoriju od tjestenine. Još kada je ta tjestenina skuhana u jednom jedinom loncu, to mi je odmah najdraži tip jela. Ovo je sve ispalo tako jednostavno i ukusno da je odmah upisano na listu mojih favorita.

Dobro sve promiješajte, vodeći računa o tome da je tjestenina uglavnom potopljena u tekućinu. Pustite da zavrije, smanjite vatru i kuhajte čvrsto poklopljeno. Kuhajte 15-tak minuta, da tjestenina bude kuhana al dente, s time da nekoliko puta za vrijeme kuhanja sve promiješate. Kušajte i prilagodite začine, pa umiješajte još i ribani sir. Poslužite odmah. Ovo se jelo također i dobro podgrijava, pa je super opcija za pripremiti unaprijed i ponijeti na posao.

This dish is super healthy, tasty and easy to make. I went down with quinoa, but feel free to use any other grain of your choice. Since zucchini are now in season, they were a great addition. Also, to veganize the meal, just sub the regular butter with its vegan version.

Ovo jelo je jako zdravo, ukusno i lako za pripremiti. Ja sam se odlučila za kvinoju, ali vi slobodno upotrijebite koju drugu žitaricu prema vašem izboru. Pošto su tikvice sada u sezoni, ovdje su bile odličan dodatak. Ako jelo želite veganizirati, to možete lako učiniti ako klasični maslac zamijenite nekom veganskom opcijom.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 6 porcija / 6,44 kn po porciji / 38,61 kn za sve)

2 žlice suncokretovog ulja (0,20 kn)

Sada dodajte tikvice i češnjak, začinite solju, paprom i soja sosom, pa kuhajte par minuta da tikvica omekša. Za kraj ubacite kvinoju i temeljac.

Dobro sve promiješajte i pustite da zavrije. Smanjite vatru, te kuhajte poklopljeno 15-20 minuta da kvinoja bude gotova. Po potrebi dodajte još malo vode i svakako sa vremena na vrijeme promiješajte. Poslužite odmah ili rasporedite u porcije za kasnije, pošto se ovo jelo super podgrijava.

Mushroom and Goat Cheese Brown Rice Risotto (vegetarian) / Rižoto od smeđe riže, gljiva i kozjeg sira (vegetarijanski)

I have a confession to make. I never cook risotto the right way, which involves infinite stirring and adding the hot, yet not quite boiling, liquid in bit by bit. Yes, I am aware that the Italian people, gourmets, proper chefs and most foodies are rolling their eyes right now in severe disapproval. However, I am lazy and value my own comfort and time more than any food related rules, especially those which I do not fully understand.

If you are okay with the above, keep reading. If, on the other hand, you find me calling the dish below a risotto thoroughly offensive, I really suggest you stop paying attention right now, because it will only get worse from this point on.

IMGP8359

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields 4 generous servings / 1.13 EUR per serving / 4.53 EUR for all)

1 tsp sunflower seed oil (0.01 EUR)

1 onion (0.10 EUR)

2 tbsp butter (0.27 EUR)

500 grams Portobello mushrooms (2.00 EUR)

Good pinch of salt (0.01 EUR)

Good pinch of freshly ground black pepper (0.02 EUR)

2 cups brown rice (0.80 EUR)

4 cups water (–)

1 cup cooking cream (0.66 EUR)

1 cup shredded mature goat cheese (0.66 EUR)

IMGP8363

METHOD:

Peel and finely dice the onion. Clean and thinly slice the mushrooms. Add the onion and oil to a pot on high heat and saute for a few minutes, until slightly translucent. Throw in butter, mushrooms, salt and pepper. Give a good stir and cook until the mushrooms release their liquid. Add in rice and water, give a good stir and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and cook covered for about 40 minutes, until the rice is thoroughly cooked through. Stir occasionally and add in a splash more of water, if needed.

Once the rice is done, stir in cooking cream and shredded cheese. If you are not a fan of goat cheese, you can easily swap it for any other hard cheese like Parmigiano-Reggiano or Grana Padano. Turn off heat, taste and adjust seasonings, then cover and allow it to sit undisturbed for 5-10 minutes. Serve warm. This also reheats great, which can only mean meal prep!

Moram vam nešto priznati. Nikad ne kuham rižoto na ispravan način – onaj koji uključuje beskonačno miješanje i polagano dodavanje vruće, ali ne baš kipuće, tekućine. Da, da, svjesna sam činjenice da svi Talijani, gurmani, pravi kuhari i fudiji sada kolutaju očima u potpunom neodobravanju. Međutim, ja sam lijena i cijenim svoje vrijeme i ugodu puno više od nekih pravila vezanih uz hranu, a posebice onih koje baš do kraja i ne razumijem.

Ako sa time nemate nekih problema, samo nastavite čitati. S druge strane, ako je moje proglašenje jela u nastavku rižotom za vas u najmanju ruku uvredljivo, bolje da se sada zaustavite jer će stvari nakon uvoda biti samo još gore.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 4 izdašne porcije / 8,50 kn po porciji / 34,01 kn za sve)

1 žlica suncokretovog ulja (0,10 kn)

1 luk (0,75 kn)

2 žlice maslaca (2,00 kn)

500 g šampinjona (15,00 kn)

Dobar prstohvat soli (0,01 kn)

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

2 šalice smeđe riže (6,00 kn)

4 šalice vode (–)

1 šalica vrhnja za kuhanje (5,00 kn)

1 šalica ribanog tvrdog kozjeg sira (5,00 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Ogulite i fino nasjeckajte luk. Gljive očistite i narežite na tanke listiće. Luk i ulje stavite u lonac na jakoj vatri pa dinstajte par minuta dok luk ne bude staklast. Dodajte maslac, gljive, sol i papar. Dobro promiješajte pa ostavite da gljive puste tekućinu. Sada ubacite rižu i vodu, dobro promiješajte, te kuhajte poklopljeno 40-tak minuta, dok riža ne bude gotova. Povremeno promiješajte, a po potrebi dodajte još malo vode.

Kada je riža kuhana, umiješajte vrhnje za kuhanje i ribani sir. Ako niste fan kozjeg sira, slobodno upotrijebite parmezan, Grana Padano ili neki slični tvrdi sir. Maknite rižoto s vatre, kušajte i prilagodite začine, te poklopite i ostavite da miruje 5-10 minuta. Poslužite toplo. Ovaj rižoto se također i super podgrijava, pa ga možete spremiti unaprijed i imati gotov ručak za užurbani tjedan.

Bean, Quinoa, Lentil and Sausage Stew / Varivo od graha, kvinoje i leće sa kobasicama

I had various leftovers at home and decided to whip up a huge pot of stew to feed us in the upcoming week. So this is an odd, yet delicious mix of things like quinoa and bacon, which in many peoples’ minds maybe doesn’t fit together at all. But I’m happy to report that this marriage was a delicious and a happy one, though. Naturally, as always, you do you and adapt where you see fit, following the directions where your fridge and pantry stocks nudge you.

Pošto sam doma imala raznih ostataka, odlučila sam nam smućkati veliki lonac grah variva da nas hrani kroz tjedan. Tako da sam na kraju dobila ovakav čudnjikav, ali i jako ukusan miks na prvi pogled nespojivih stvari kao što su kvinoja i špek. Međutim, konačni je rezultat ispao odlično. Naravno, kao i uvijek, vi slobodno prilagodite sastojke, kako vlastitom ukusu, tako i onome što vam je doma pri ruci u hladnjaku i špajzi.

SASTOJCI:

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

8 šalica vode (–)

PRIPREMA:

Operite, ogulite i fino nasjeckajte svo povrće. Kobasice narežite na novčiće, a slaninu na par krupnih komada. U mrežastoj cjediljci dobro isperite kvinoju i leću pod mlazom vode. Dodajte ulje u veliki lonac, pa na jakoj vatri par minuta dinstajte luk dok ne bude staklast. Ubacite svježi češnjak, mrkvu i papriku rogu. Kratko kuhajte tako da se povrće blago karamelizira, te onda ubacite kobasice i slaninu. Dobro promiješajte te ostavite kuhati pet minuta.

U lonac dodajte sjeckane rajčice, leću, kvinoju, grah, lovor, slatku papriku, češnjak u prahu, čili, sol, papar i vodu.

METHOD:

Wash, peel and finely dice all of the veggies. Cut the ham into cubes. Add pork lard to a large pot on high heat and saute the onion for a few minutes until translucent. Add in garlic and carrots, then cook those up to slightly caramelize. Add in the rest of the ingredients, give a good stir and bring to a rolling boil.

Reduce heat and simmer on low with a lid cracked open for about 40 minutes, until barley if thoroughly cooked through. If needed, add in a bit more water. Serve warm, or portion out for later.

3 mrkve (2,25 kn)

1 konzerva sjeckanih pelata (4,00 kn)

1 šalica ječma (1,00 kn)

500 g šunke (20,00 kn)

1 žlica slatke paprike (0,50 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Operite, ogulite i fino nasjeckajte svo povrće. Šunku narežite na kockice. Svinjsku mast stavite u veliki lonac, pa na jakoj vatri par minuta na masti dinstajte luk dok ne postane staklast. Dodajte češnjak i mrkvu, te kratko kuhajte da se blago karameliziraju. Dodajte sve preostale sastojke, dobro promiješajte i pustite da zavrije.

Smanjite vatru i krčkajte sa odškrinutim poklopcem oko 40 minuta, dok ječam ne bude skroz kuhan. Po potrebi, dodajte još mrvicu vode. Poslužite toplo ili si rasporedite za kasnije.
