Homemade Salty Crackers (vegan) / Slani krekeri (veganski)

I’m one of those people who can be quite ambivalent to sweets. But when it comes to salty snacks, put a bowl of chips in front of me and see them disappear faster than you can properly pronounce Eyjafjallajökull.

Therefore, these homemade salty crackers are my crack. They’re super easy to make and can keep in an airtight container at room temperature for a couple of weeks. That is, if you by any chance forget about them and don’t polish off the whole tray immediately. Also, they’re on a healthier side of spectrum than your regular store-bought chips, crackers and related products, so you can feel less guilty about you snacking frenzy. Just saying!

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields about 50 crackers / 0.50 EUR)

1 cup all-purpose flour (0.07 EUR)

1 cup finely ground sunflower seeds (0.13 EUR)

2 tbsp ground flax seeds (0.07 EUR)

1 tbsp sesame seeds (0.07 EUR)

1 tsp salt (0.01 EUR)

1 tsp cumin (0.07 EUR)

¼ tsp freshly ground black pepper (0.02 EUR)

Pinch of baking powder (0.01 EUR)

4 tbsp sunflower seed oil (0.05 EUR)

4-5 tbsp water (–)

IMGP7451

IMGP7452

IMGP7459

METHOD:

Preheat the oven to 170°C. In a bowl, mix together flour, ground sunflower seeds, flax seeds, sesame seeds, salt, cumin, pepper and baking powder. Add in the oil and about three tablespoons of water. Mix everything well until a shaggy dough forms and as needed, add the remaining water bit by bit until the dough holds together. Using your hands shape the dough into a flat disk and place it between two sheets of parchment paper. Roll the dough out into a thin sheet, remove the top parchment and cut into rectangles. If desired, you can sprinkle the crackers with a bit more salt, which isn’t necessary, but is highly suggested.

I’ve made these a few times so I can confirm that the crackers won’t expand, so there is no need to space them out. Simply carefully transfer the whole sheet of parchment with cut crackers on a large flat baking tray and bake for 20-25 minutes. My first attempt of making these (as seen on pictures) involved shaping the dough into a log, refrigerating, cutting into thin coins and then rolling out into even thinner disks, which not only proved to be super laborious, but completely unnecessary.

Once the crackers are done and golden brown, remove them from the oven and allow them to cool completely on a baking tray before storing in an airtight container at room temperature. Just don’t put them in the fridge because they’ll end up soggy.

Ja sam jedna od onih osoba koja može biti skroz ambivalentna prema slatkišima, ali zato stavite ispred mene zdjelu čipsa i samo gledajte kako ju počistim prije nego uspijete ispravno izgovoriti Eyjafjallajökull.

Naravno, ovi su krekeri moj crack. Jako ih je lako za napraviti, a u hermetički zatvorenoj posudi na sobnoj temperaturi mogu držati tjednima. Pod uvjetom da slučajno na njih zaboravite i ne sljuštite odmah cijeli protvan. Također, ipak su na zdravijoj strani spektra od tipičnih kupovnih čipseva, krekera i srodnih proizvoda, pa se možete osjećati manje krivima jer ste se zanijeli sa grickanjem. Samo kažem.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 50-tak krekera / 3,66 kn)

1 šalica glatkog brašna (0,50 kn)

1 šalica fino mljevenih suncokretovih sjemenki (1,00 kn)

2 žlice mljevenog lana (0,50 kn)

1 žlica sezama (0,50 kn)

1 žličica soli (0,01 kn)

1 žličica kima u zrnu (0,50 kn)

¼ žličice svježe mljevenog crnog papra (0,15 kn)

Prstohvat praška za pecivo (0,10 kn)

4 žlice suncokretovog ulja (0,40 kn)

4-5 žlica vode (–)

PRIPREMA:

Zagrijte pećnicu na 170°C. U zdjeli pomiješajte brašno, mljeveni suncokret, lan, sezam, sol, kim, papar i prašak za pecivo. Dodajte ulje i oko tri žlice vode, pa dobro sve promiješajte dok se ne oformi labavo tijesto. Po potrebi malo po malo dodajte ostatak vode dok se tijesto ne drži skupa. Rukama formirajte tijesto u disk i stavite ga između dva lista papira za pečenje. Razvaljajte u tanku plahtu, maknite gornji papir i izrežite tijesto u kvadratiće. Ako želite, posipajte krekere sa još mrvicom soli. Ovo nije nužno, ali je apsolutno preporučljivo.

Ja sam ove krekere radila već nekoliko puta i mogu vam reći kako se oni neće uopće raširiti dok se peku, tako da ih nema potrebe razmicati. Jednostavno pažljivo preselite list papira sa narezanim krekerima na ravni veliki protvan i pecite 20-25 minuta. Prvu turu krekera koju sam ikada napravila (a koja je i tu na slikama) radila sam tako da sam prvo tijesto formirala u kladu, onda ohladila, pa narezala na tanke novčiće, pa na kraju još tanje razvaljala u diskove. To se sve pokazalo ne samo užasno dugotrajnim, već i apsolutno nepotrebnim.

Kada su krekeri pečeni i zlatno-smeđi, izvadite ih iz pećnice i ostavite da se skroz ohlade na protvanu. Onda ih preselite u hermetički zatvorenu posudu i čuvajte na sobnoj temperaturi. Nemojte ih ni slučajno stavljati u hladnjak jer će se razgnjecati.

Homemade Salty Crackers (vegan) / Slani krekeri (veganski)

Quick and Easy Hummus with Homemade Tahini (vegan) / Brzi i jednostavni humus sa domaćim tahinijem (veganski)

This hummus is so delicious and super easy to make. It also came out costing next to nothing because I used homemade tahini, instead of buying the expansive pre-packaged stuff. And let me tell you right away, making homemade tahini is the easiest thing in the world. However, you will need a good coffee grinder or a powerful food processor with coffee grinder blades. I also added some peanut butter into the finished hummus for additional yumminess, but you’re welcome to replace it with more tahini if you’re one of those hummus purists or just don’t care for peanut butter.

IMGP7322

IMGP7324

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields 2 jars / 0.60 EUR per jar / 1.20 EUR for all)

For tahini:

¼ cup toasted hulled sesame seeds (0.13 EUR)

1-2 tsp sunflower seed oil (0.01 EUR)

For the hummus:

1 can of cooked chickpeas (0.67 EUR)

¼ cup of aquafaba – reserved chickpea water (–)

1 garlic clove (0.03 EUR)

2 tbsp homemade tahini (price already calculated above)

1 tbsp peanut butter (0.13 EUR)

2 tbsp olive oil (0.09 EUR)

1 tbsp lemon juice (0.07 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)

IMGP7328

METHOD:

First make the tahini in a coffee grinder by pulsing sesame seeds with sunflower seed oil until creamy and smooth. This might take a minute or two, depending on your processor, and you’ll probably have to scrape the sides a couple of times. Add in a bit more oil if needed.

Drain the chickpeas, but reserve aquafaba (which is a fancy name for the chickpea water) for later. Add all of the hummus ingredients to a food processor and pulse until smooth. If needed, add in a bit more of the reserved water, a tablespoon at a time, until the hummus reaches a desired consistency. Serve chilled with a nice crusty bread or pita for dipping. Or with a bunch of sliced veggies.

The hummus will keep refrigerated in an airtight container for at least a week.

IMGP7329


Ovaj humus je jako ukusan, a totalno jednostavan za pripremiti. Osim toga, cijena mu je super niska iz razloga što sam ja napravila svoj tahini, umjesto da stavim kupovni. I odmah da znate, napraviti domaći tahini je najlakša stvar na svijetu. Međutim, trebati će vam za to ili dobar mlinac za kavu, ili jaki multipraktik koji ima nastavak sa oštricama kao u mlincu za kavu. Ja sam u humus također ubacila i malo kikiriki maslaca jer ga obožavam. Međutim, vi ga slobodno zamijenite sa još tahinija ako ste purist kada je u pitanju priprema humusa ili jednostavno ne volite kikiriki maslac.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 2 teglice / 4,51 kn po teglici / 9,02 kn za sve)

Za tahini:

¼ šalice oljuštenog tostiranog sezama (1,00 kn)

1-2 žličice suncokretovog ulja (0,10 kn)

Za humus:

1 konzerva kuhanog slanutka (5,00 kn)

¼ šalice aquafabe – tekućine koja ostane od slanutka (–)

1 češanj češnjaka (0,25 kn)

2 žlice domaćeg tahinija (cijena uračunata gore)

1 žlica kikiriki maslaca (1,00 kn)

2 žlice maslinovog ulja (0,66 kn)

1 žlica limunovog soka (0,50 kn)

½ žličice dimljene paprike (0,25 kn)

Dobar prstohvat soli (0,01 kn)

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

PRIPREMA:

Prvo pripremite tahini tako da u mlincu za kavu propulsirate sezam sa suncokretovim uljem dok ne dobijete glatku kremu. To bi moglo potrajati i koju minutu, ovisno o tome koliko vam je jak mlinac, odnosno multipraktik. Također, vjerojatno ćete s vremena na vrijeme morati špatulom postrugati stranice, a po potrebi dodajte još i mrvicu ulja.

Ocijedite slanutak, ali sačuvajte svu tekućinu (aquafabu) za kasnije. Sve sastojke za humus dodajte u multipraktik i pulsirajte dok ne bude kremasto. Ako treba dodajte još malo sačuvane tekućine, žlicu po žlicu, dok humus ne bude željene konzistencije. Poslužite ohlađeno sa nekim finim hrskavim kruhom ili pita kruhom, ili pak sa narezanim komadima svježeg povrća.

Humus će u hermetički zatvorenoj posudi u hladnjaku držati barem tjedan dana.

Peanut Butter Bliss Balls (vegan) / Energetski zalogaji sa kikiriki maslacem (veganski)

Since I really enjoyed my first experiment with these healthy and easy snacks, I decided to whip up some more bliss balls. IMO, these taste just like Snickers, which is pretty much a win in my book.

Also, you can easily make the oat flour yourselves. Just throw some rolled oats into a food processor and pulse to grind them down in a fine powder.

IMGP7259

IMGP7260

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields 10 bliss balls / EUR for all)

10 pitted dates (0.33 EUR)

2 tbsp peanut butter (0.27 EUR)

1 cup oat flour (0.20 EUR)

1 tsp raw cacao powder (0.13 EUR)

Pinch of salt (0.01 EUR)

IMGP7261

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 peanut butter, oat flour, cacao powder and salt. Pulse until thick dough forms and if needed add a tiny bit of water to hold it all together.

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.

IMGP7262


Pošto mi je prvi eksperiment sa ovim zdravim snackovima skroz uspio, odlučila sam smutiti još. Ove loptice me jako podsjećaju na Snickers, što je naravno fantastična stvar.

Također, zobeno brašno možete lako napraviti sami tako da samo ubacite zobene pahuljice u multipraktik i pulsirate ih dok ne dobijete fini prah.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 10 loptica / 7,01 kn za sve)

10 odkoštenih datulja (2,50 kn)

2 žlice kikiriki maslaca (2,00 kn)

1 šalica zobenog brašna (1,50 kn)

1 žlica sirovog kakao praha (1,00 kn)

Prstohvat soli (0,01 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Namočite datulje u toploj vodi 10-15 minuta prije početka da malo omekšaju. Ocijedite datulje, pa ih skupa sa kikiriki maslacem, zobenim brašnom, kakaom i soli ubacite u multipraktik. Pulsirajte dok se ne formira gusto tijesto, a po potrebi dodajte mrvicu vode da se sve lakše drži na okupu.

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.

Olive, Basil and Sunflower Seed Spread (tapenade) / Namaz od maslina, bosiljka i suncokretovih sjemenki (tapenada)

This spread is a tapenade and pesto lovechild and I just can’t get enough of it. Since tapenade on its own is pretty intense in flavor, I like it more as a salad dressing then as a spread. But mellowed down with some sunflower seeds and infused with fresh basil, it’s just right.

This spread will keep refrigerated in an airtight container for at least a week.

IMGP7342

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields 2 jars / 1.28 EUR per jar / 2.55 EUR for all)

1 cup pitted green olives (0.80 EUR)

3 tbsp capers (0.40 EUR)

4 salted anchovy fillets (0.27 EUR)

2 small garlic cloves (0.07 EUR)

½ cup sunflower seeds (0.13 EUR)

4 tbsp olive oil (0.18 EUR)

2 tbsp lemon juice (0.27 EUR)

Large handful of fresh basil (0.40 EUR)

Good pinch of freshly ground black pepper (0.03 EUR)

IMGP7338

IMGP7339

METHOD:

Wash the olives and capers under running water and drain. Throw all of the ingredients in a food processor and grind into a chunky paste. Taste to adjust the seasoning and serve chilled. Since most of the ingredients are already really salty, I found no need for additional salt in my own version.

IMGP7344

IMGP7343


Ovaj namaz je zapravo nekakav miks između tapenade i pesta, ali meni je savršen. Pošto je tapenada sama po sebi poprilično aromatična i intenzivnog okusa, meni je draža kao dresing za salatu nego kao namaz za kruh. Ali razblažena sa suncokretovim sjemenkama i obogaćena svježim bosiljkom, baš mi je taman.

Ovaj namaz će bez problema držati u hladnjaku u hermetički zatvorenoj posudi barem tjedan dana.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 2 teglice / 9,54 kn po teglici / 19,07 kn za sve)

1 šalica odkoštenih zelenih maslina (6,00 kn)

3 žlice kapara (3,00 kn)

4 slana fileta inćuna (2,00 kn)

2 mala češnja češnjaka (0,50 kn)

½ šalice suncokretovih sjemenki (1,00 kn)

4 žlice maslinovog ulja (1,32 kn)

2 žlice limunovog soka (2,00 kn)

Veliki pregršt svježeg bosiljka (3,00 kn)

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

PRIPREMA:

Isperite masline i kapare u cjediljci pod mlazom tekuće vode. Sve sastojke ubacite u multipraktik i pulsirajte dok ne krupno mljevenu pastu. Kušajte i prilagodite začine, te poslužite ohlađeno. Pošto je većina sastojaka već dosta slana, ja u svoju verziju namaza nisam dodavala više soli.

Paleo Tabbouleh (vegan) / Paleo libanonska salata tabbouleh (veganska)

I’m gonna come clean right away and admit that I’ve never tasted actual Tabbouleh in my life. However, it’s been popping up lately wherever I look on the internet, and since tomatoes and cucumbers just appeared on the markets, I took it as a sign. Also, I decided to make this paleo and use sunflower seeds instead of traditional bulgur.

IMGP7438

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields 2 servings / 0.90 EUR per serving / 1.79 EUR for all)

1 small red onion (0.10 EUR)

1 large cucumber (0.27 EUR)

3 tomatoes (0.40 EUR)

Large handful of fresh parsley (0.27 EUR)

Small handful of fresh mint (0.13 EUR)

½ cup sunflower seeds (0.13 EUR)

Juice of 1 lemon (0.27 EUR)

4 tbsp olive oil (0.18 EUR)

Good pinch of salt (0.01 EUR)

Good pinch of freshly ground black pepper (0.03 EUR)

IMGP7435

IMGP7437

METHOD:

Peel the onion and wash and pat dry all the veggies and herbs. Cut the cucumber lengthwise, first in halves and then in quarters, then cut out and discard all the seeds. Finely chop up everything and then toss together with sunflowers seeds, lemon juice, olive oil, salt and pepper. This salad is best when fresh, but it will keep refrigerated in an airtight container for a day or two.

IMGP7436


Da odmah priznam, pravi libanonski tabbouleh nisam nikada imala prilike probati. Međutim, zadnjih dana svako malo naletim na neki tabbouleh recept na internetu, a pošto su se na placu upravo pojavile divne rajčice i krastavci, shvatila sam to kao znak. Također, odlučila sam ga napraviti paleo, pa sam umjesto bulgura koji se tradicionalno koristi u ovoj salati odlučila upotrijebiti suncokretove sjemenke.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 2 porcije / 6,67 kn po porciji / 13,33 kn za sve)

1 mali ljubičasti luk (0,75 kn)

1 veliki krastavac (2,00 kn)

3 rajčice (3,00 kn)

Veliki pregršt svježeg peršina (2,00 kn)

Malo svježe mente (1,00 kn)

½ šalice suncokretovih sjemenki (1,00 kn)

Sok od 1 limuna (2,00 kn)

4 žlice maslinovog ulja (1,32 kn)

Dobar prstohvat soli (0,01 kn)

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

PRIPREMA:

Ogulite luk te operite i papirnatim ručnikom posušite svo povrće i zelenje. Krastavac po dužini raspolovite i onda raščetvorite, pa izrežite van i bacite sjemenke. Fino sve nasjeckajte i pomiješajte sa suncokretovim sjemenkama, limunovim sokom, maslinovim uljem, soli i paprom. Ova je salata najbolja kada je svježa, ali držati će u hermetički zatvorenoj posudi u hladnjaku dan ili dva.

Marinated Feta Cheese (vegetarian) / Marinirani feta sir (vegetarijanski)

This dish is an absolute blast to have around at parties and will instantly fancy up your antipasto platter to level 9,000. Also, it’s great to just keep a giant jar around for yourself to munch on, since this tastes absolutely fantastic and requires about five minutes of your time to prepare.

When you’re done with the cheese, definitely be sure to save the leftover olive oil for later. The oil is gonna soak up all those wonderful aromas from herbs and spices, so just strain it and keep refrigerated to use as a tasty salad dressing.

IMGP7307

INGREDIENTS:

Block of feta (or any other soft salty cheese)

A few sprigs of fresh thyme

A few sprigs of fresh rosemary

1-2 bay leaves

2-3 sundried tomatoes

Good pinch of red pepper flakes

Good pinch of freshly ground black pepper

Cheap olive oil

IMGP7308

IMGP7311

METHOD:

Cube the cheese and arrange in a jar, interspersed with layers of herbs, sundried tomatoes (which I remembered to stuff in the jars after the pictures were already taken) and sprinkles of red pepper flakes and black pepper. When the jar is full, pour enough olive oil to cover all of the cheese and refrigerate. Allow the mix to sit for a day before digging in, so the cheese has some time to soak up the aromas.

Rumor has it that this marinated cheese can keep up in the fridge for at least two weeks. However, I never got around to verifying this piece of information, as it was all devoured within days.

IMGP7309


Ovo jelo je kao stvoreno za bilo kakva druženja i odmah će vašu platu sa narescima podignuti na fensi level 9.000. Osim toga, super ga je uvijek imati pri ruci u ogromnoj staklenci da možete prigristi kada vam bude volja, pošto je okus savršen a za pripremu vam treba oko pet minuta.

SASTOJCI:

Komad fete (ili bilo kojeg drugog mekanog slanog sira)

Par grančica svježeg timijana (majčine dušice)

Par grančica svježeg ružmarina

1-2 lovorova lista

2-3 sušene rajčice

Dobar prstohvat sušenog čilija u pahuljicama

Dobar prstohvat svježe mljevenog crnog papra

Jeftino maslinovo ulje

PRIPREMA:

Narežite sir na kocke i slažite u staklenku tako da na svaki red sira stavite sloj začinskog bilja i sušenih rajčica (koje sam se ja sjetila nagurati u staklenku tek kada sam sve slikala), kao i malo čilija i papra. Kada je staklenka puna, ulijte dovoljno maslinovog ulja da skroz prekrijete sav sir. Čuvajte u hladnjaku, a ostavite da se sve paca bar jedan dan kako bi sir imao vremena povući sve arome.

Priča se po internetu da ovakav marinirani sir može u hladnjaku držati barem dva tjedna. Međutim, meni nije uspjelo provjeriti tu tvrdnju jer bi se sve uvijek pokrkalo u najviše par dana.

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.

IMGP7334

IMGP7330

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.

IMGP7337


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.
