Creamy Mushroom, Cauliflower and Bean Soup (vegan) / Krem juha od gljiva, cvjetače i graha (veganska)

Whenever I’m in doubt about what I want to eat, I know that I can never go wrong with a bowl of delicious soup. This one is fortified with cannellini beans, which makes it super hearty and filling. I’m definitely craving lighter foods now that the holidays and all the festivities are over, so this soup gives my tummy a much needed break.

IMG_2348

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields 6 servings / 0.75 EUR per serving / 4.51 EUR for all)

2 tbsp sunflower seed oil (0.03 EUR)

300 grams of oyster mushrooms (2.00 EUR)

1 large onion (0.10 EUR)

400 grams of frozen cauliflower (1.00 EUR)

1 can of cannellini beans (0.67 EUR)

1 tsp garlic powder (0.07 EUR)

1 tsp salt (0.01 EUR)

1 tsp freshly ground black pepper (0.07 EUR)

1 bay leaf (0.03 EUR)

2 tbsp dried parsley (0.13 EUR)

6 cups of veggie broth (0.40 EUR)

IMG_2345

METHOD:

Wash the mushrooms and tear them up in strips. Peel and dice the onion. Add the oil and the mushrooms to a large pot on medium-high heat and cook for about 10 minutes until caramelized. After ten minutes add in the diced onion and cook for about five minutes to soften. Then add in the cauliflower, cannellini beans, garlic powder, salt, black pepper, bay leaf, parsley and veggie broth. Bring to a rolling boil, reduce heat and simmer with a lid cracked open for about 20 minutes.

After 20 minutes turn off heat and fish out and discard the bay leaf. Pulse the soup through with an immersion blender until creamy and smooth. If you’d like to keep some texture, set some chunks aside before pulsing. Taste and adjust seasonings, then serve. This soup also reheats great and is an excellent option for meal prep. Some fresh croutons would also go wonderfully with it.

Kada god imam nekih dilema oko toga što bih jela, znam da nikada neću pogriješiti sa nekom finom juhicom. Ova u nastavku je još podebljana sa bijelim grahom, tako da je baš izdašna i zasitna. Sada kad su nam prošli blagdani i slavlja, definitivno mi se jede laganija hrana, a sa ovom sam juhom i svojem trbuhu dala priliku da se malo odmori.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 6 porcija / 5,61 kn po porciji / 33,66 kn za sve)

2 žlice suncokretovog ulja (0,20 kn)

300 g bukovača (15,00 kn)

1 veliki luk (0,75 kn)

400 g smrznute cvjetače (7,50 kn)

1 konzerva bijelog graha (5,00 kn)

1 žličica češnjaka u prahu (0,50 kn)

1 žličica soli (0,01 kn)

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

1 lovorov list (0,20 kn)

2 žlice sušenog peršina (1,00 kn)

6 šalica povrtnog temeljca (3,00 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Operite gljive i natrgajte ih na trakice. Ogulite i nasjeckajte luk. Ulje i gljive ubacite u veliki lonac na srednje jakoj vatri, pa ih kuhajte desetak minuta da se blago karameliziraju. Nakon desetak minuta dodajte i luk, te sve kuhajte još pet minuta da omekša. Onda dodajte cvjetaču, grah, češnjak, sol, papar, lovor, peršin i temeljac. Pustite da zavrije, smanjite vatru te krčkajte sa odškrinutim poklopcem 20-tak minuta.

Nakon 20 minuta maknite s vatre, ispecajte i bacite lovorov list, te juhu propasirajte štapnim mikserom dok ne bude glatka. Ako želite malo teksture u juhi, prije pasiranja odgrabite na stranu malo gustiša. Kušajte i prilagodite začine, pa poslužite. Ova juha se super podgrijava pa je odlična opcija za skuhati unaprijed i ponijeti na posao. Također, izvrsno bi išla i poslužena sa svježim domaćim krutonima.

You’ve probably noticed by now that creamy soups are definitely my thing. They are usually quite easy to make, so I’ll whip up a big pot at least once a week. Paired with a crispy chunk of some tasty bread and maybe a salad, such soups make a well-rounded meal for me. They also reheat great and are therefore an excellent meal-prep option. The combo of earthy carrots and parsnips with sweet coconut in this iteration is splendid, so do give it a go if you’re into delicious creamy soups.

Do sada ste već vjerojatno zaključili da volim krem juhe. Što nije nimalo čudno, pošto ih je obično lako za pripremiti pa nam ja barem jednom tjedno skuham veliki lonac. Kada se takva juha spari sa komadom finog, hrskavog kruha i još nekom salatom, za mene je to onda cijeli zaokruženi obrok. S obzirom da se taj tip juha i dobro podgrijava, odlična je opcija za spremiti unaprijed i ponijeti na posao. Kombinacija dubokih zemljanih aroma mrkve i pastrnjaka sa slatkim kokosom u ovoj iteraciji je izvrsna, pa definitivno isprobajte recept ako ste ljubitelj finih, kremastih juhica.

Sada ubacite i koncentrat rajčice, temeljac i kokosovo mlijeko. Pustite da zavrije, smanjite vatru te kuhajte sa odškrinutim poklopcem 20-tak minuta.

Nakon dvadesetak minuta maknite sa vatre i krenite u ofenzivu sa štapnim mikserom. Pulsirajte dok juha ne bude glatka i kremasta. Poslužite toplo.

If you are looking for ways to up your tomato soup game and make the whole dish a bit substantial, then this will be a perfect recipe for you. Served with a good dose of finely grated hard cheese and some freshly made cheesy croutons, this soup is to die for. You don’t even have to ask, but yes, it is very simple to make and quite cheap.

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields 6 servings / 0.72 EUR per serving / 4.34 EUR for all)

For the soup:

2 tbsp olive oil (0.09 EUR)

1 large onion (0.10 EUR)

4 garlic cloves (0.13 EUR)

4 sundried tomatoes (0.27 EUR)

1 tsp salt (0.01 EUR)

½ tsp freshly ground black pepper (0.03 EUR)

½ tsp dried red pepper flakes (0.03 EUR)

1 tsp garlic powder (0.07 EUR)

1 tsp smoked paprika (0.07 EUR)

1 tsp dried oregano (0.07 EUR)

2 tsp brown sugar (0.01 EUR)

1 can of diced tomatoes (0.53 EUR)

2 cups tomato puree (0.53 EUR)

2 tbsp tomato paste (0.27 EUR)

1 can of cannellini beans (0.67 EUR)

4 cups veggie broth (0.27 EUR)

For croutons:

4 slices of stale bread of choice (0.27 EUR)

2 tbsp olive oil (0.09 EUR)

Good pinch of salt (0.01 EUR)

Good pinch of freshly ground black pepper (0.02 EUR)

¼ cup of finely grated hard cheese (0.40 EUR)

For serving:

½ cup of finely grated hard cheese (0.40 EUR)

IMGP8713

METHOD:

Peel and finely dice onion, garlic and sundried tomatoes. Saute the onion for about 5 minutes to slightly caramelize then add in garlic and sundried tomatoes. Cook for just a minute before adding salt, black pepper, red pepper flakes, garlic powder, paprika, oregano, sugar, diced tomatoes, tomato puree, tomato paste, beans and veggie broth. Bring to a rolling boil, reduce heat and simmer covered for about 30 minutes. You can definitely cut down the cooking time, but the flavors will intensify over time and the soup will only taste better as it simmers away.

While the soup is simmering, prepare the croutons. Preheat the oven to 180°C and line a baking tray with parchment paper. Cut the bread into small cubes and toss with olive oil, salt, pepper and cheese. I used Grana Padano for croutons and later on to serve over soup, but any similar sort of cheese would work just as well. Spread the coated bread cubes on a prepared baking tray and roast for 10-15 minutes, until crispy and golden to your liking.

When the soup is done, pulse it with immersion blender until smooth. Serve warm, sprinkled with cheese and croutons. This soup also reheats great, so be sure to cook up a bigger batch as a meal prep.

U slučaju da tražite način kako nabrijati običnu juhu od rajčice i pretvoriti ju u cijeli obrok, ovo će biti savršen recept za vas. Poslužena sa dobrom dozom fino ribanog tvrdog sira i svježim hrskavim krutonima, juha je čista fantazija. I ne morate niti pitati, ali da, juha je skroz jednostavna za pripremiti i prilično jeftina.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 6 porcija / 5,39 kn po porciji / 32,34 kn za sve)

Za juhu:

2 žlice maslinovog ulja (0,66 kn)

1 veliki luk (0,75 kn)

4 češnja češnjaka (1,00 kn)

4 sušene rajčice (2,00 kn)

1 žličica soli (0,01 kn)

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

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

1 žličica češnjaka u prahu (0,50 kn)

1 žličica dimljene paprike (0,50 kn)

1 žličica sušenog origana (0,50 kn)

2 žličice smeđeg šećera (0,10 kn)

1 konzerva sjeckanih pelata (4,00 kn)

2 šalice pasirane rajčice (4,00 kn)

2 žlice koncentrata od rajčice (2,00 kn)

1 konzerva bijelog graha (5,00 kn)

4 šalice povrtnog temeljca (2,00 kn)

Za krutone:

4 šnite starog kruha po izboru (2,00 kn)

2 žlice maslinovog ulja (0,66 kn)

Dobar prstohvat soli (0,01 kn)

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

¼ šalice fino ribanog tvrdog sira (3,00 kn)

Dodatno za posluživanje:

¼ šalice fino ribanog tvrdog sira (3,00 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Operite, ogulite i fino nasjeckajte luk, češnjak i sušene rajčice. Luk prodinstajte pet minuta na maslinovom ulju da se blago karamelizira, pa onda dodajte češnjak i sušene rajčice. Kuhajte tek koju minutu prije nego ubacite sol, papar, čili, češnjak u prahu, papriku, origano, šećer, pelate, pasiranu rajčicu, koncentrat rajčice, grah i temeljac. Pustite da zavrije, pa smanjite vatru i krčkajte sa odškrinutim poklopcem 30-tak minuta. Zapravo možete i skratiti vrijeme kuhanja ako ste u žurbi, ali što se dulje juha bude kuhala, to će okus biti bolji i intenzivniji.

Dok se juha krčka pripremite krutone. Pećnicu zagrijte na 180°C te obložite protvan papirom za pečenje. Kruh narežite na kockice i pomiješajte sa maslinovim uljem, solju, paprom i sirom. Ja sam upotrijebila Grana Padano, kako za krutone, tako i kasnije za posipanje po juhi, ali bilo kakav sličan sir bi također funkcionirao. Začinjene krutone rasporedite po pripremljenom protvanu i pecite 10-15 minuta dok se ne zahrskaju po vašem ukusu i ne budu zlatno-smeđi.

Kada je juha gotova propulsirajte ju štapnim mikserom da bude kremasta. Poslužite ju toplu, posipanu sa sirom i sa krutonima. Ova se juha super podgrijava, pa svakako skuhajte veći lonac da imate i za kasnije.

Istina je da bi ova juhica možda bila prikladnija za neko hladnije i kišno vrijeme. Međutim, ja baš volim jesti takve juhe i po ljeti jer su lagane, a ipak zasitne. Također sam i ljubitelj pikantne hrane u bilo koje doba godine, a ovo jelo baš ima fini ljutkasti štih.

I don’t know if you are familiar, but mushroom powder is all the rage on the internet right now. It’s probably the equivalent of what avocado on toast used to be several years ago. Honestly, I’ve been a bit skeptical about the magic of mushroom powder, but decided to give it a go since it’s such a straightforward thing (you dump dried mushrooms in a food processor and grind them to a fine powder). Lo and behold, there really is some real power to the humble mushroom powder, so I suggest you try it out for yourself

I also order my dried shiitake in bulk from Ebay, so they come out really affordable. I used a bag of frozen mixed veggies here with carrot, cauliflower and broccoli mix, so this soup came together super quickly.

METHOD:

Wash, peel and finely dice onion and garlic, then add them to a deep pot on high heat together with oil. Saute for a few minutes, until softened and slightly translucent. Add in frozen mixed veggies, red pepper flakes, miso paste, mushroom powder and veggie broth. Bring to a rolling boil, reduce heat and cook with a lid cracked open for 20 minutes, until veggies are soften. Once the veggies are cooked through, turn off heat, add in toasted sesame oil and pulse everything with an immersion blender until smooth and creamy.

While the soup is cooking, prepare quinoa. Wash quinoa in a fine mesh colander under running water. Add to a pot with salt and water, bring to a boil and then simmer on low with a lid on for 15 minutes, until completely cooked through.

Serve the pureed soup with a scoop of cooked quinoa, or portion out and reheat later on.

Ne znam da li vam je poznato, ali Internet je trenutno poludio za praškom od gljiva i on je sada zauzeo važno mjesto koje je pred par godina imao tost sa avokadom. Iskreno, ja sam bila pomalo skeptična oko cijele fame, ali sam ipak odlučila isprobati taj čudesni prah, pošto je sve jako jednostavno i zdravorazumski (Uzmete sušene gljive, ubacite u multipraktik i boom! Eto vam prašak od gljiva.). I na kraju sam se i ja kao nevjerni Toma uvjerila da ipak ima neke čarolije u skromnom prašku od gljiva, pa vam svakako predlažem da ga i vi isprobate.

Također, kao super jeftini izvor sušenih gljiva svakako vam preporučam dobri stari Ebay. Ja od tamo naručujem sušene shiitake u većim pakiranjima, pa cijena ispadne stvarno pristupačna (za razliku od npr. sušenih vrganja po našim dućanima, brrr). U ovom sam receptu upotrijebila miks smrznute mrkve, brokule i cvjetače, pa je juha bila gotova za čas.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 4 izdašne porcije / 6,28 kn po porciji / 25,11 kn za sve

Za juhu:

2 žlice suncokretovog ulja (0,20 kn)

1 veliki luk (0,75 kn)

2 češnja češnjaka (0,50 kn)

1 vrećica smrznutog miješanog povrća (7,50 kn)

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

1 žlica miso paste (2,00 kn)

4 žlice praška od gljiva – ja sam upotrijebila shiitake (4,00 kn)

4 šalice povrtnog temeljca (2,00 kn)

1 žličica tostiranog sezamovog ulja (0,50 kn)

Za kvinoju:

1 šalica kvinoje (7,50 kn)

2 šalice vode (–)

Dobar prstohvat soli (0,01 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Operite, ogulite i nasjeckajte luk i češnjak, pa ih ubacite u lonac sa uljem na jakoj vatri. Dinstajte nekoliko minuta, dok ne omekšaju i postanu staklasti. Ubacite smrznuto povrće, čili, miso, prašak od gljiva i temeljac. Pustite da zavrije, smanjite vatru, pa krčkajte 20-tak minuta sa odškrinutim poklopcem da povrće omekša. Kada je povrće kuhano, maknite s vatre, dodajte sezamovo ulje i propulsirajte štapnim mikserom da sve bude kremasto.

Dok vam se juha krčka skuhajte i kvinoju. Operite kvinoju u finoj cjediljci pod mlazom tekuće vode, pa ubacite u lončić sa vodom i solju. Pustite da zavrije, pa onda krčkajte poklopljeno na niskoj vatri 15 minuta da se kvinoja skuha do kraja.

Krem juhu poslužite sa par žlica kuhane kvinoje, ili pak sve rasporedite u porcije i podgrijte prema potrebi.
