Toss carrot, onion, tofu, lettuce and bean sprouts together in a large bowl and drizzle prepared dressing over everything and serve immediately.

Crunchy Tuna Salad / Hrskava salata of tune

The weather has been super warm and humid lately, so all I wanna do is munch on salads. This recipe is ideal as a light lunch and you can whip it up in just minutes. If you’re as lazy as I am, you’re gonna make it even easier for yourself and use prewashed and cut bagged mixed greens. Mine had thin carrot sticks in as well.

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields 2 servings / 2.03 EUR per serving / 4.06 EUR for all)

1 can of tuna (1.73 EUR)

2 salted anchovy fillets (0.27 EUR)

METHOD:

Drain canned tuna from brine or oil and flake it with a fork. Finely chop up anchovies and cut pitted olives into rings. Toss together with capers and mixed greens. Season with olive oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper and enjoy. Be sure to go easy on the salt, though, as anchovies, olives and capers are already quite salty on their own.

Vrijeme je zadnjih dana baš toplo i sparno, tako da mi se samo jedu salate. Ovaj recept je idealan kao lagani ručak, a možete ga zgotoviti za svega par minuta. Ako ste jednako lijeni kao i ja, olakšajte si dodatno tako da uzmete pakiranu opranu i narezanu zelenjavu. U mojoj salati su bili također i tanki štapići mrkve.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 2 porcije / 15,16 kn po porciji / 30,32 kn za sve)

1 konzerva tune (13,00 kn)

2 slana fileta inčuna (2,00 kn)

1/3 šalice odkoštenih maslina (3,00 kn)

2 žlice kapara  (2,00 kn)

Veliki pregršt miješane salate (7,50 kn)

2 žlice maslinovog ulja (0,66 kn)

2 žlice limunovog soka (2,00 kn)

Mali prstohvat soli (0,01 kn)

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

PRIPREMA:

Ocijedite tunu od salamure ili ulja i usitnite viljuškom. Fino nasjeckajte inćune, a masline narežite na kolutiće. Pomiješajte skupa sa kaparama i salatom. Začinite sa maslinovim uljem, sokom od limuna, soli i paprom i navalite. Samo pazite da ne pretjerate sa soli, jer su i inčuni, masline i kapare već prilično slani sami za sebe.

Colourful Fig Salad / Šarena salata sa smokvama

I’ve returned from my vacation a couple of days ago and am slowly getting back into my old routine and structure. I mostly ate crap while on vacation, so this really simple and healthy salad was a welcome change. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve enjoyed every bite of all the millions of fire-soared hot dogs I devoured, but it’s about time to get a few vegetables in my body as well.

Pred par dana sam se vratila sa godišnjeg i polako se vraćam svojoj starroj rutini i strukturi. Na godišnjem sam uglavnom jela smeće, tako da mi je ova jako jednostavna i zdrava salata bila dobrodošla promjena. Nemojte me krivo shvatiti, uživala sam u svakom zalogaju milijona hrenovki pečenih na vatri kojih sam proždrla. Ali mislim da je krajnje vrijeme da u sebe ubacim i pokoje povrće.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 1 veliku porciju / 8,42 kn)

2 šalice tanko narezanog zelja (0,50 kn)

Dobar prstohvat soli (0,01 kn)

Dobar prstohvat svježe mljevenog crnog papra (0,05 kn)

2 žlice jabučnog octa (0,20 kn)

½ malog luka, tanko narezanog (0,25 kn)

½ crvene paprike, tanko narezane (0,25 kn)

2-3 male rajčice, narezane na kriške (1,50 kn)

5-6 malih smokvi, narezanih na polovice ili četvrtine (2,50 kn)

Komadić tvrdog sira, narezan na tanke listiće (2,50 kn)

2 žlice maslinovog ulja (0,66 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Za početak pomiješajte zelje sa soli, paprom i octom, pa ostavite da odstoji barem pola sata kako bi zelje omekšalo. Umiješajte narezani luk i papriku. Poslažite po vrhu rajčice, smokve i sir, pokapajte maslinovim uljem i odmah poslužite. Ta-da!

Easiest Green Beans Ever (Vegan) / Najlakše mahune ikad (veganske)

I feel like green beans are a totally underestimated vegetable. Which is sad, because I really like them a lot. The following recipe works great served either warm or cold. I usually serve the green beans warm as a side dish, but cold as a salad. For me both are equally tasty and satisfying.

IMGP5170

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields 4 servings / 0.30 EUR per serving / 1.21 EUR for all)

2 tbsp olive oil (0.09 EUR)

500 g of frozen green beans (1.00 EUR)

3 cloves of garlic, minced (0.10 EUR)

Good pinch of salt (0.01 EUR)

Good pinch of freshly ground black pepper (0.01 EUR)

IMGP5174

METHOD:

Preheat a deep skillet or a pot on high heat. Add in oil, green beans, minced garlic, salt and pepper and stir vigorously. Cook covered for 10-15 minutes, while stirring occasionally. Adjust the cooking time by how well done you prefer your green beans. The recipe would also work great with fresh green beans, but I would briefly blanch those before cooking with garlic and spices.

IMGP5173


Čini mi se kao da  su mahune totalno podcijenjeno povrće. Što je malo tužno, jer ih ja stvarno jako volim. Ovaj recept funkcionira jednako dobro topao ili hladan. Ja obično mahune poslužim tople kao prilog, a hladne kao salatu. Oboje mi je jednako fino.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 4 porcije / 2,24 kn po porciji / 8,97 kn za sve)

2 žlice maslinovog ulja (0,66 kn)

500 g smrznutih zelenih mahuna (7,50 kn)

3 češnja češnjaka, sitno nasjeckana (0,75 kn)

Dobar prstohvat soli (0,01 kn)

Dobar prstohvat svježe mljevenog crnog papra (0,05 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Zagrijte duboku tavu ili lonac na visokoj temperaturi. Dodajte ulje, mahune, sjeckani češnjak, sol i papar pa dobro promiješajte. Kuhajte poklopljeno 10-15 minuta uz povremeno miješanje. Vrijeme kuhanja prilagodite tome kakvu teksturu mahuna volite. Ovaj bi recept jednako dobro funkcionirao i sa svježim mahunama, samo bi ih ja kratko blanširalal prije nego što bi ih stavila kuhati sa češnjakom i začinima.
