Roasted Red Pepper and Sundried Tomato Spread (vegan) / Ajvar od pečenih paprika i sušenih rajčica (veganski)

This spread is fairly similar to previous recipes for roasted red pepper spreads (ajvar) I’ve posted, but I think that sundried tomatoes add enough novelty and depth of flavor that this dish is absolutely worthy of its own cyberspace. I’ve used a combo of fresh red peppers, which I’ve roasted, and pickled roasted red pepper fillets and the result was very satisfactory. You’re free to opt for a single of these options, or use different ratios of fresh vs. pickled peppers.

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields 3 jars / 0.89 EUR per jar / 2.66 EUR for all)

3-4 sundried tomatoes (0.27 EUR)

3 fresh red bell peppers (1.33 EUR)

1 small onion (0.07 EUR)

3 garlic cloves (0.10 EUR)

7-8 cherry tomatoes (0.53 EUR)

4 pickled roasted red pepper fillets (0.27 EUR)

Small pinch of dried red pepper flakes (0.02 EUR)

½ tsp smoked paprika (0.03 EUR)

Good pinch of salt (0.01 EUR)

Good pinch of freshly ground black pepper (0.03 EUR)

IMGP7331

IMGP7333

METHOD:

Place sundried tomatoes in a cup of warm water and let them soak to soften while you prepare everything else. Preheat the oven to 200°C and line a baking tray with parchment paper. Wash and halve the fresh peppers and discard their stems and seeds. Cut the unpeeled onion in half, then arrange together with fresh peppers, unpeeled garlic and cherry tomatoes on a prepared baking tray. Bake for 45 minutes, until the peppers are blistered and charred. Immediately cover the hot baking tray with aluminum foil and let it sit for about half an hour. This will help the skins release from the roasted peppers.

Peel and discard the skins from roasted peppers, onion and garlic. Drain the soaked sundried tomatoes and the pickled peppers from their brine. Throw all of the ingredients in a food processor and grind into a chunky paste. Taste and adjust seasonings. Serve chilled. The spread will keep refrigerated in an airtight container for at least a week.

Ovaj namaz je veoma sličan receptima za ajvar koje sam već ranije objavljivala. Međutim, mislim da ga sušene rajčice čine dovoljno zanimljivim da zaslužuje svoj vlastiti mali kutak cyberspacea. Ja sam upotrijebila kombinaciju svježih crvenih paprika koje sam ispekla i već gotovih kupovnih ukiseljenih pečenih crvenih paprika, a rezultat je bio odličan. Naravno, vi slobodno stavite samo jedan od tih dvaju sastojaka ili se po svojoj želji malo poigrajte sa omjerima.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 3 teglice / 6,64 kn po teglici / 19,91 kn za sve)

3-4 sušene rajčice (2,00 kn)

3 svježe crvene paprike (10,00 kn)

1 mali luk (0,50 kn)

3 češnja češnjaka (0,75 kn)

7-8 cherry rajčica (4,00 kn)

4 ukiseljene pečene crvene paprike (2,00 kn)

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

½ žličice dimljene crvene paprike (0,25 kn)

Dobar prstohvat soli (0,01 kn)

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

PRIPREMA:

Namočite sušene rajčice u toploj vodi da omekšaju dok pripremite sve ostalo. Zagrijte pećnicu na 200°C i obložite protvan papirom za pečenje. Operite i raspolovite svježe paprike, pa ih očistite od sjemenki i peteljki. Luk skupa sa ljuskom prepolovite i zajedno sa svježim paprikama, neoljuštenim češnjakom i cherry rajčicama raširite po pripremljenom protvanu. Pecite 45 minuta dok se paprike ne karameliziraju. Odmah pokrijte vrući protvan aluminijskom folijom i ostavite jedno pola sata kako bi se paprike uparile, a kože sa njih lakše gulile.

Ogulite i bacite kožu sa pečenih paprika, kao i ljuske sa luka i češnjaka. Ocijedite sušene rajčice koje ste namočili i ukiseljene crvene paprike. Sve sastojke sada ubacite u multipraktik i pulsirajte dok ne dobijete željenu teksturu. Kušajte i prilagodite začine, a poslužite ohlađeno. Ovaj ajvar će držati u hermetički zatvorenoj posudi u hladnjaku barem tjedan dana.

Crispy Cauliflower in Peanut Sauce (vegan) / Hrskavi karfijol (cvjetača) u umaku od kikirikija (veganski)

Cauliflower is definitely one of those most underrated foods. On its own, it doesn’t really offer much taste-wise. But its mild taste means that you can use it like a blank canvas and go wild with spices and all sorts of flavors.

This dish is super easy to make and is pretty addictive. However, I’d strongly suggest using fresh cauliflower instead of frozen, like I did in this recipe. But since we had a bag of frozen cauliflower floating around, it was what I opted for. While it did get a bit soggy and out of shape, it still tasted delicious, especially fresh from the oven.

IMGP7232

IMGP7233

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields 2 generous servings / EUR per serving / 1.95 EUR for all)

1 bag of frozen cauliflower florets (1.07 EUR)

For the roasting batter:

1 cup all-purpose flour (0.07 EUR)

Good pinch of salt (0.01 EUR)

¼ tsp baking powder (0.01 EUR)

¼ cup plant-based milk (0.10 EUR)

¼ cup sparkling water (0.03 EUR)

1 tsp toasted sesame oil (0.13 EUR)

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)

½ tsp toasted sesame oil (0.07 EUR)

½ tsp salt (0.01 EUR)

½ tsp red pepper flakes (0.03 EUR)

IMGP7234

IMGP7230

IMGP7235

IMGP7237

METHOD:

Preheat the oven to 200°C. Line a baking tray with parchment paper and set aside. Make a roasting batter by whisking together all of the ingredients until smooth and no lumps remain. If the batter seems too thick, thin it out with a splash of water. Dunk the frozen cauliflower florets in batter and spread out on a prepared baking tray. Bake for about 20-25 minutes, until crispy and golden. Allow the cauliflower to cool slightly so you can handle it without burning yourself, but keep the oven running because you’ll need it for phase two.

Meanwhile, while the cauliflower is roasting, prepare the peanut sauce. Whisk 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. Toss the slightly cooled cauliflower in sauce to coat evenly, then spread out on the same parchment lined baking pan and return to the oven. Bake for additional 10-15 minutes until the sauce coating is crisped up. Serve immediately.

Karfijol iliti cvjetača je definitivno jedna od najpodcjenjenijih namirnica. Sam za sebe baš i nema puno za ponuditi po pitanju okusa. No s druge strane, baš taj blagi šmek znači da ga možete koristiti kao podlogu i razmahati se sa začinima i svakakvim aromama.

Ovo jelo je vrlo jednostavno za pripremiti i poprilično zarazno. Međutim, moja je preporuka da upotrijebite svježi karfijol, a ne smrznuti kao što sam ja učinila. Pošto smo doma već neko vrijeme imali vrećicu smrznutog karfijola, odlučila sam ga iskoristiti u ovom receptu. I iako se dosta razmekšao i povenuo, svejedno je bio jako ukusan, a posebno tek netom pečen.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 2 izdašne porcije / 7,19 kn po porciji / 14,38 kn za sve)

1 vrećica smrznutih cvjetića karfijola (8,00 kn)

Za smjesu za pohanje:

1 šalica glatkog brašna (0,50 kn)

Dobar prstohvat soli (0,01 kn)

¼ žličice praška za pecivo (0,03 kn)

¼ šalice veganskog mlijeka (0,75 kn)

¼ šalice gazirane mineralne vode (0,25 kn)

1 žličica tostiranog sezamovog ulja (1,00 kn)

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)

½ žličice tostiranog sezamovog ulja (0,50 kn)

½ žličice soli (0,01 kn)

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

PRIPREMA:

Zagrijte pećnicu na 200°C i obložite protvan papirom za pečenje te ga stavite na stranu. Pripremite smjesu za pohanje tako da dobro izmiješate sve sastojke, dok smjesa ne bude glatka i bez grudica. Ako vam je smjesa pregusta, razrijedite ju sa još malo vode. Smrznuti karfijol umačite u smjesu te ga onda rasporedite po pripremljenom protvanu. Pecite oko 20-25 minuta, dok karfijol ne bude hrskav i zlatan. Ostavite karfijol da se malo ohladi tako da možete njime rukovati bez da se opečete, ali za to vrijeme nemojte gasiti pećnicu jer će vam trebati za sljedeću fazu.

U međuvremenu dok se karfijol peče spremite umak od kikirikija. Miješajte na laganoj vatri sve sastojke dok se kikiriki maslac i kukuruzni škrob skroz ne otope, te pustite da umak lagano zavrije. Kuhajte nekoliko minuta uz neprestano miješanje da se umak malo zgusne. Ohlađeni karfijol pomiješajte sa umakom dok ne bude dobro obložen sa svih strana, pa ga opet raširite po istom protvanu obloženom papirom za pečenje. Pecite još dodatnih 10-15 minuta, dok se premaz od umaka ne zahrska. Poslužite odmah.

Creamy Tuna Spread / Kremasti namaz od tune

This spread is my new favorite thing. It comes together super quickly, especially if you already have some hard-boiled eggs on hand. But even with the additional step of boiling the eggs, you’re gonna whip this up in no time. It keeps pretty well in fridge when stored in an airtight container and will be good for up to five days.

IMGP7354

IMGP7348

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields 3 jars / 1.75 EUR per jar / 5.24 EUR for all)

2 hard-boiled eggs, cooled (0.40 EUR)

1 cup of fresh soft cheese like queso blanco (0.67 EUR)

3 tbsp crème fraiche (0.40 EUR)

1 tbsp lemon juice (0.13 EUR)

5-6 small pickles (0.27 EUR)

Handful of fresh chives (0.13 EUR)

2 cans of tuna in brine, drained (3.20 EUR)

Good pinch of salt (0.01 EUR)

Good pinch of freshly ground black pepper (0.03 EUR)

IMGP7349

IMGP7351

METHOD:

Cut the hard-boiled eggs in half and scoop out the yolks. Add the yolks, cheese, crème fraiche and lemon juice to a food processor and blitz for a minute or two until silky and smooth. Roughly chop the egg whites, pickles and chives, then add them to the cheese mixture together with tuna, salt and pepper. Blitz a few times until everything is finely chopped and incorporated, but still a bit on a chunky side. Taste and adjust seasonings and chill well before serving.

Ovaj namaz mi je jedno od novih najdražih otkrića. Gotov je za čas, posebno ako već imate tvrdo kuhanih jaja pri ruci. No, čak i ako morate kuhati jaja, namaz ćete smutiti u trenu. U hermetički zatvorenoj posudi u hladnjaku, namaz će bez problema držati do pet dana.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 3 teglice / 13,09 kn po teglici / 39,26 kn za sve)

2 tvrdo kuhana jaja (3,00 kn)

1 šalica svježeg sira (5,00 kn)

3 žlice milerama (3,00 kn)

1 žlica limunovog soka (1,00 kn)

5-6 manjih kiselih krastavaca (2,00 kn)

Pregršt svježeg vlasca (1,00 kn)

2 limenke tune u salamuri (24,00 kn)

Dobar prstohvat soli (0,01 kn)

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

PRIPREMA:

Raspolovite tvrdo kuhanja jaja i izvadite žumanjke, pa ih skupa sa sirom, mileramom i sokom od limuna ubacite u multipraktik i provrtite dok sve ne bude glatko i kremasto. Grubo narežite bjelanjke, kisele krastavce i vlasac, te ih dodajte u smjesu sira, zajedno sa tunom, soli i paprom. Problicajte par puta dok sve ne bude fino sjeckano i pomiješano, ali vam i dalje ostanu sitni komadići. Kušajte i prilagodite začine te dobro ohladite prije posluživanja.

Cacao and Cashew Bliss Balls (vegan, paleo) / Energetski zalogaji sa kakaom i indijskim orasima (veganski, paleo)

These healthy and nutrient filled snacks are all the rage on the internet. Since the weather is getting warmer and warmer, I’m craving lighter and healthier foods and snacks. Bliss balls seem like just the thing to get me through the day and are also super easy to make, which is pretty much a necessity in my book, since I am a lazy person. 😀

IMGP7257

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields 8-10 bliss balls)

10 pitted dates (0.33 EUR)

1 cup unsalted cashews (2.00 EUR)

3 tbsp raw cacao powder (0.40 EUR)

1 tsp pure vanilla extract (0.03 EUR)

Pinch of salt (0.01 EUR)

1-2 tsp water (–)

IMGP7263

METHOD:

Soak the dates in warm water to soften them up, about 10-15 minutes before starting. Drain the dates and add them to a food processor together with cashews, cacao powder, vanilla and salt. Pulse until thick dough starts to form, and as needed add a tiny bit of water, a teaspoon at a time.

Refrigerate the dough for 30 minutes before forming into bliss balls, to ensure easier handling. Dampen your fingers slightly with water before shaping the dough into balls. Store refrigerated in an airtight container for up to five days.

Internet je poludio za ovim zdravim i izdašnim snackovima, a kako je vrijeme sve toplije, tako i ja nekako imam želju jesti laganiju i zdraviju hranu. Energetski zalogaji su baš prava stvar, a još su i jako jednostavni za napraviti, što je najbitnija stavka pošto sam ja jako lijena osoba. 😀

SASTOJCI:

(Za 8-10 loptica / 20,71 kn za sve)

10 odkoštenih datulja (2,50 kn)

1 šalica neslanih indijskih oraščića (15,00 kn)

3 žlice sirovog kakao praha (3,00 kn)

1 žličica ekstrakta od vanilije (0,20 kn)

Prstohvat soli (0,01 kn)

1-2 žličica vode (–)

PRIPREMA:

Namočite datulje u toploj vodi 10-15 minuta prije početka da malo omekšaju. Ocijedite datulje, pa ih skupa sa indijskim oraščićima, kakaom, vanilijom i soli ubacite u multipraktik. Pulsirajte dok se ne formira gusto tijesto, a po potrebi dodajte mrvicu vode, žličicu po žličicu.

Tijesto stavite u hladnjak na 30 minuta kako bi vam bilo lakše formirati kuglice. Ruke malo namočite, pa prstima oblikujte kuglice od tijesta. Čuvajte u hermetički zatvorenoj posudi u hladnjaku do pet dana.

Potato Phyllo Pie (including a vegan option) / Pita krumpiruša (uključujući i vegansku opciju)

Ever since my last success with homemade phyllo, I felt a strong urge to bake a potato filled pie. Because, who doesn’t like filling carbs with more carbs, right?

This dish can be easily made vegan if you replace the butter with coconut oil or margarine. Actually, any kind of mild-flavored oil would work, but you would need to add it gradually to dough while stretching it out.

IMGP7145

IMGP7132

IMGP7133

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields 6 servings / 0.15 EUR per serving / 0.87 EUR for all)

For the dough:

2 cups all-purpose flour, divided (0.13 EUR)

1 tsp salt (0.01 EUR)

2 tbsp sunflower seed oil (0.03 EUR)

¾ cup lukewarm water (–)

2 tbsp butter (0.27 EUR)

For the filling:

1 small onion (0.07 EUR)

3 medium sized potatoes (0.13 EUR)

Good pinch of salt (0.01 EUR)

Good pinch of freshly ground black pepper (0.03 EUR)

1 tsp garlic powder (0.07 EUR)

1 tsp sweet Hungarian paprika (0.03 EUR)

1 tsp smoked paprika (0.07 EUR)

1 tbsp sunflower seed oil (0.01 EUR)

Additional:

Oil for greasing the baking pan (0.01 EUR)

IMGP7130

IMGP7134

IMGP7135

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 no longer sticks to your hands. Tightly wrap it 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 even balls. Place a small piece of butter (or a vegan substitute) on each dough ball and gently massage it around the dough. You don’t want the butter penetrating the dough at this point, but you want the dough balls pretty evenly 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 the onion and shredding the potatoes on a box grater. Add in the remaining filling ingredients, stir well and set aside. There’s no need to precook the filling, as it’s going to get cooked through while the pie bakes.

Once the dough has rested for the second time, preheat the oven to 200°C and grease a round baking pan with a little bit of oil. Thin the dough balls out a bit with a rolling pin. Then use your hands, thread them underneath the dough and gently pull it out towards the outer edges. The dough should spread out into thin sheets easily and will be elastic enough not to break. Place three dough sheets on top of each other on the bottom of the greased pan, but leave the edges to hang out. Spread out the filling and then top with remaining three sheets.

Use kitchen shears or a sharp knife to trim the thick edges off the dough, leaving just a centimeter or two of the overlap hanging off the pan. Pinch the remaining overlapping layers together and roll them into a neat fold.

Bake the pie for about 45 minutes, until crispy and deep golden brown. If the top starts browning too quickly, cover the pan with aluminum foil and bake covered. Uncover the pie for the last 5-10 minutes of baking to crisp it up and finish off.

Od kako sam zadnji puta uspješno napravila domaće kore za burek, imala sam veliku želju napraviti i pitu krumpirušu. Jer naravno, tko ne voli ugljikohidrate podebljati sa još malo ugljikohidrata, zar ne?

Ovo jelo veoma lako može biti vegansko ako maslac zamijenite sa kokosovim uljem ili margarinom. Također, možete upotrijebiti i bilo koje ulje neutralnog okusa, jedino ćete ga morati postepeno dodavati u tijesto kako ga budete razvlačili.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 6 porcija / 1,06 kn po porciji / 6,37 kn za sve)

Za tijesto:

2 šalice glatkog brašna, podijeljene (1,00 kn)

1 žličica soli (0,01 kn)

2 žlice suncokretovog ulja (0,20 kn)

¾ šalice mlake vode (–)

2 žlice maslaca (2,00 kn)

Za nadjev:

1 mali luk (0,50 kn)

3 srednje velika krumpira (1,00 kn)

Dobar prstohvat soli (0,01 kn)

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

1 žličica češnjaka u prahu (0,50 kn)

1 žličica slatke paprike (0,25 kn)

1 žličica dimljene paprike (0,50 kn)

1 žlica suncokretovog ulja (0,10 kn)

Dodatno:

Ulje za namastiti protvan za pečenje (0,05 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Napravite tijesto tako da prvo pomiješate šalicu brašna sa solju, uljem i vodom. Kada dobijete jednoličnu masu, postepeno dodajte ostatak brašna, a tijesto mijesite dok ne bude glatko i prestane vam se lijepiti za ruke. Tijesto dobro umotajte u prijanjajuću foliju i ostavite da tako miruje na sobnoj temperaturi 20 minuta.

Nakon 20 minuta još jednom promijesite tijesto te ga podijelite u 6 jednakih loptica. Na svaku lopticu stavite mali komadić maslaca, pa ga rukama nježno umasirajte po tijestu. U ovom trenutku nije potrebno da maslac uđe u tijesto, već samo da je loptica sa svih strana dobro namašćena. Tijesto ostavite da miruje na sobnoj temperaturi nepokriveno, ovoga puta 30 minuta.

Dok tijesto odmara pripremite nadjev tako da fino nasjeckate luk, a krumpire naribate. U to dodajte preostale sastojke za nadjev te sve dobro izmiješajte i stavite na stranu. Nema potrebe da nadjev kuhate jer će se sve skuhati u bureku kako se on peče.

Kada je tijesto odmorilo i drugi puta, zagrijte pećnicu na 200°C, a okrugli protvan namastite sa malo ulja. Loptice tijesta malo razvaljajte valjkom, a onda rukama razvucite u tanke krugove, i to tako da ruke podvučete pod tijesto i nježno ga povlačite prema van. Tijesto bi se trebalo dati lako razvući i biti će dovoljno elastično da ne puca. Tri plahte tijesta složite jednu na drugu, u pripremljeni protvan, s time da ostavite krajeve tijesta da vise preko ruba. Po tome ravnomjerno rasporedite nadjev te ga poklopite sa preostale tri plahte tijesta.

Kuhinjskim škarama ili oštrim nožem odrežite debele krajeve tijesta, s time da vam jedno centimetar-dva i dalje ostane viriti preko ruba kalupa. Taj višak stisnite skupa, pa sve uredno zamotajte.

Krumpirušu pecite oko 45 minuta, dok ne bude hrskava i zlatno-smeđa. Ako površina prenaglo potamni, pokrijte protvan aluminijskom folijom i pecite pokriveno. U tom slučaju krumpirušu otkrijte tek zadnjih 5-10 minuta pečenja kako bi se za kraj zahrskala.

Lentil and Corn Quesadillas (vegetarian) / Quesadilje sa lećom i kukuruzom (vegetarijanske)

This isn’t really a recipe per se – it’s more an idea on how to use up random stuff you have around your fridge. It just happens that I had some of this leftover lentil and corn stew and decided to make a new dish out of it by stuffing it in tortillas with a bunch of cheese. This type of dish would work great with any other sort of thick stew, some fresh veggies, leftover roasted meats or veggies and basically anything else you can throw in a tortilla.

It’s pretty hard to calculate the exact price on these, since I used leftover stew, but I’m pretty sure they came out really cheap.

IMGP7161

IMGP7162

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields 8 quesadillas)

8 tortillas

4 cups of leftover lentil and corn stew

4 cups of shredded cheese

IMGP7163

IMGP7164

IMGP7169

METHOD:

Reheat the leftover stew and keep warm while you prepare the tortillas. Place a skillet on medium heat to warm up and toast the tortillas on one side. Keep the skillet warm as you’re gonna use it again in a bit. Spread half a cup of warm stew on one half of a toasted side of tortilla. Sprinkle with shredded cheese and fold the tortilla over in half. Return the tortilla to the warm skilled and toast a bit on both sides, while carefully flipping so the filling doesn’t fall out. Serve immediately. We prefer our food on the burnt side, so always toast things into charcoal.

Ovo čak i nije pravi recept, više je nekakva ideja na koji način možete iskoristiti razne ostatke koje imate u frižideru. Ispalo je tako da mi je bilo ostalo ovog variva od leće i kukuruza, pa sam to odlučila iskoristiti za novo jelo, i to tako da sam ga utrpala u tortilje sa hrpom sira. Ovakvo bi se jelo dalo napraviti od bilo kakvog gustog variva, svježeg povrća, ostataka pečenog mesa ili povrća, i u principu bilo čega drugog što možete nagurati u tortilju.

Bilo mi je teško izračunati cijenu ovoga jela jer sam upotrijebila ostatke variva, ali sam poprilično sigurna da je na kraju ispalo poprilično jeftino.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 8 quesadilja)

8 tortilja

4 šalice variva od leće i kukuruza

4 šalice ribanog sira

PRIPREMA:

Podgrijte varivo i držite ga na toplom dok priredite tortilje. Stavite tavu na srednju vatru i pustite da se ugrije, pa na tavi tostirajte tortilje, ali samo na jednoj strani. Držite tavu toplom jer ćete ju ubrzo opet trebati. Na tostiranu stranu svake tortilje stavite po pola šalice variva i sira. Preklopite tortilju na pola te ju vratite na tavu. Tostirajte na obje strane, pažljivo okrećući da vam nadjev ne iscuri van. Poslužite odmah. Mi volimo da je sve dobro zapečeno, pa stvari obično tostiramo dok se ne pretvore u ugljen.

Raspberry Carrot Mini Muffins / Mini mafini sa malinom i mrkvom

These muffins were an experiment which came to life after cleaning up my fridge and pantry. I wanted to make some muffins, but had a tiny bit of this and tiny bit of that lying around the house. But it’s quite easy to get creative and substitute things when you make muffins, so they actually turned out quite delicious. Of course, you can tweak around and adjust the ingredients to work with what you have on hand. Also, the topping is totally optional here, but it adds such a nice sweet crunch that it would be a shame to skip it.

I have some tiny silicone muffin molds which I love, but go ahead and use regular muffin tin instead. Just remember to grease it up so the muffins don’t stick. Also, baking time will be slightly longer for larger sized muffins.

METHOD:

Preheat the oven to 200°C. In a bowl, whisk together egg, vanilla, milk and sour cream. Stir in melted butter and shredded carrots. Add in sugar, flours, flax seeds, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Stir until everything is well combined. Scoop about a tablespoon of mixture into each muffin mold, add a single frozen raspberry to each muffin and then top with remaining batter.

To make the topping, mix all of the ingredients well in a small bowl. Top each muffin with about ½ tsp of this mix. Bake the muffins for about 25-30 minutes, until crispy and deeply golden brown. Allow them to cool to room temperature before serving.

Ovi mafini su nastali kao eksperiment nakon što sam raščistila frižider i špajzu. Naime, baš su mi se jeli mafini, ali sam doma imala mrvice razno raznih ostataka. Srećom, sa mafinima je lako biti kreativan i zamijeniti sastojke nečim drugim, pa su ovi moji na kraju ispali super. Naravno, vi slobodno podesite recept i iskoristite ono što vam je pri ruci. Također, smjesa za posipanje nije obavezna, ali će vam dati takvu slatku hrskavoću da bi ju bilo stvarno šteta izbaciti.

Ja imam silikonski kalup za mini mafine koji mi je super, no vi slobodno upotrijebite normalan kalup. Samo ga se sjetite dobro namastiti ako koristite onaj metalni, a kako vam se mafini ne bi zalijepili. Također, za veće mafine ćete trebati i malo produžiti vrijeme pečenja.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 25 mini mafina / 0,81 kn po mafinu / 20,30 kn za sve)

Za tijesto:

1 jaje (1,50 kn)

1 žličica ekstrakta od vanilije (0,20 kn)

1 šalica mlijeka (1,50 kn)

1 šalica kiselog vrhnja (3,00 kn)

3 žlice maslaca, rastopljene (3,00 kn)

2 velike mrkve, naribane (1,50 kn)

½ šalice šećera (0,75 kn)

1 i ½ šalica glatkog brašna (0,75 kn)

1 i ½ šalica integralnog brašna (1,13 kn)

½ šalice mljevenih sjemenki lana (1,50 kn)

1 žličica praška za pecivo (0,10 kn)

½ žličice sode bikarbone (0,01 kn)

Dobar prstohvat soli (0,01 kn)

25 smrznutih malina (2,50 kn)

Za smjesu za posipanje:

2 žlice maslaca, rastopljene (2,00 kn)

3 žlice zobenih pahuljica (0,30 kn)

2 žlice smeđeg šećera (0,50 kn)

1 žlica mlijeka (0,05 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Zagrijte pećnicu na 200°C. U zdjeli razmutite jaje sa vanilijom, mlijekom i kiselim vrhnjem. Umiješajte u to rastopljeni maslac i ribane mrkve. Dodajte šećer, oba brašna, lan, prašak za pecivo, sodu bikarbonu i sol, pa miješajte dok se sve ne sjedini. U svaki kalup dodajte oko žlicu smjese, na to stavite po jednu smrznutu malinu, te prekrijte sa preostalom smjesom.

Napravite smjesu za posipanje tako da pomiješate sve sastojke u maloj zdjelici. Na svaki mafin stavite oko ½ žličice te smjese. Pecite mafine oko 25-30 minuta, dok ne budu hrskavi i zlatno-smeđi. Ostavite ih da se ohlade na sobnu temperaturu prije posluživanja.
