Vegan Cheesecake / Veganski Cheesecake

Happy Valentine’s day! If you are still on the lookout for something sweet to quickly whip up for your loved one (or to just treat yourself), look no further!

This vegan desert is very easy to make and is mostly raw. The majority of it comes together in a food processor and the only waiting time is for the whole thing to freeze. I decided to make it in jars so it could be more portable and single-serving, but you’re more than welcome to throw it together in a regular cake pan. I decided to top it with a quick raspberry jam (that’s the not raw part of the cake), but feel free to pick any other fruit of your choice, or skip the jam altogether.

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields 7 servings / 0.98 EUR per serving / 6.83 EUR for all)

For the crust:

1 cup unsalted cashews (1.33 EUR)

½ cup pitted dates (0.33 EUR)

2 tbsp raw cacao powder (0.27 EUR)

1-2 tsp water (–)

For the cream “cheese” filling:

1 and ½ cups soaked unsalted cashews (2.00 EUR)

1 cup pitted dates (0.67 EUR)

1 tsp pure vanilla extract (0.03 EUR)

2 tbsp lemon juice (0.27 EUR)

1 cup plant-based milk (0.27 EUR)

For raspberry jam:

2 cups frozen raspberries (1.33 EUR)

½ cup pitted dates (0.33 EUR)

IMGP7674

IMGP7680

IMGP7691

METHOD:

Make the crust by combining all of the ingredients in a food processor and pulsing until a chunky dough forms. Press the dough into the bottom of glass jars (or into a cake pan, if using) and set aside.

To make the cream “cheese” filling, drain the soaked cashews and place in a food processor with the rest of the ingredients. Pulse on high speed until creamy and no chunks remain (this may take several minutes). Pour the filling over the crust and place cheesecakes in a freezer to firm up.

While the cheesecakes are resting in the freezer, prepare the raspberry jam. Heat the raspberries up on stovetop and simmer for about 10 minutes to thicken. Pulse the dates in a food processor into a smooth paste, then stir into raspberries. Allow the jam to cool down completely before pouring over frozen cheesecakes.

Remove the cheesecakes from freezer about 10 minutes before eating to slightly loosen up, but otherwise store in freezer.

Sretno vam Valentinovo! Ako ste još uvijek u potrazi za nekom slasticom kojom ćete počastiti svojeg voljenog ili voljenu (ili, na kraju krajeva, same sebe), ne tražite dalje!

Ovaj veganski desert je jako jednostavan za pripremiti i uglavnom je sirov. Većinu posla za vas će odraditi multipraktik, a jedino što zahtijeva nešto vremena je čekanje dok se sve smrzne. Ja sam se odlučila napraviti mini čizkejke u posudicama veličine jedne porcije, ali naravno, vi slobodno sve istovarite u normalni kalup za torte. Za preljev sam se odlučila za brzi pekmez od malina (to je onaj dio kolača koji nije sirov), ali naravno vi slobodno uzmite neko drugo voće, ili pekmez skroz izbacite.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 7 porcija / 7,31 kn po porciji / 51,20 kn za sve)

Za koru:

1 šalica sirovih indijskih oraščića (10,00 kn)

½ šalice odkoštenih datulja (2,50 kn)

2 žlice sirovog kakao praha (2,00 kn)

1-2 žličice vode (–)

Za kremu od ”sira”

1 i ½ šalica preko noći namočenih sirovih indijskih oraščića (15,00 kn)

1 šalica odkoštenih datulja (5,00 kn)

1 žličica ekstrakta od vanilije (0,20 kn)

2 žlice limunovog soka (2,00 kn)

1 šalica veganskog mlijeka po izboru (2,00 kn)

Za pekmez od malina:

2 šalice smrznutih malina (10,00 kn)

½ šalice odkoštenih datulja (2,50 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Ubacite sve sastojke za koru u multipraktik i pulsirajte dok ne dobijete grudasto tijesto. Tijesto utisnite u dno staklenki (ili u protvan za tortu, ako ga koristite) i stavite na stranu.

Za kremu od ”sira”, ocijedite namočene oraščiće i stavite u multipraktik sa svim ostalim sastojcima. Pulsirajte na visokoj brzini dok ne dobijete glatku kremu (to može potrajati nekoliko minuta). Kremu prelijte preko kore i stavite sve u zamrzivač da se stisne.

Dok čizkejk odmara u zamrzivaču pripremite pekmez. Maline zagrijte na štednjaku i krčkajte desetak minuta da se zgusnu. Datulje smeljite u multipraktiku u glatku pastu pa onda umiješajte u maline. Pustite da se pekmez do kraja ohladi prije nego ga rasporedite po smrznutom čizkejku.

Čizkejk čuvajte u zamrzivaču, ali ga izvadite van desetak minuta prije posluživanja da se malo otpusti.

Vegan Cheesecake / Veganski Cheesecake

Pan-Fried Tofu Steaks (vegan) / Tofu odresci pečeni na tavi (veganski)

I’ll come out right away and admit that I am not a huge tofu fan. It always seemed like too bland of a thing for me. However, when seasoned and prepared properly, tofu can be quite delicious. So here is a quick and easy tofu recipe that I think everyone might enjoy.

imgp8174

imgp8168

imgp8170

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields 4 servings / 0.39 EUR per serving / 1.58 EUR for all)

For the tofu:

2 small blocks of firm tofu (1.33 EUR)

Good pinch of salt (0.01 EUR)

Good pinch of freshly ground black pepper (0.02 EUR)

1 tsp sunflower seed oil (0.01 EUR)

For the sauce:

1 tsp miso paste (0.10 EUR)

1 tbsp ketchup (0.07 EUR)

1 tsp Sriracha (0.04 EUR)

1 tsp warm water (–)

imgp8172

imgp8171

imgp8177

METHOD:

Pat dry tofu with a kitchen towel. If you want a firmer tofu texture, you can also press it and leave for an hour, but this step is totally optional. Cut each tofu block into half, so you end up with about 1 centimeter thick tofu slices. Sprinkle tofu generously with salt and black pepper.

Place a non-stick pan on medium heat and allow it to warm up thoroughly. Swirl the oil in the pan, then add the tofu slices. Cook the tofu undisturbed for about five minutes on each side, until crispy and golden.

Meanwhile, while the tofu is cooking, whisk up the sauce by mixing together all of the ingredients until creamy. Once the tofu is crispy on both sides, brush it with prepared sauce. Sear the tofu again on both sides, only for half a minute, until slightly charred. Serve warm or cold.

Odmah ću priznati da nisam baš neki ogromni ljubitelj tofua, a sve iz razloga što je često nekako bezukusan. Međutim, kada tofu dobro začinite i pravilno pripremite, može biti veoma fini. Evo vam jedan brzi i jednostavni recept za tofu u kojem mislim da bi svi mogli uživati.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 4 porcije / 2,94 po porciji / 11,74 za sve)

Za tofu:

2 manja komada čvrstog tofua (10,00 kn)

Dobar prstohvat soli (0,01 kn)

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

1 žličica suncokretovog ulja (0,03 kn)

Za umak:

1 žličica miso paste (0,75 kn)

1 žlica kečapa (0,50 kn)

1 žličica Srirache (0,30 kn)

1 žličica tople vode (–)

PRIPREMA:

Tofu posušite kuhinjskim ručnikom. Ako hoćete da tofu ima čvršću teksturu, možete ga prethodno pritisnuti sa nečim teškim i ostaviti da odstoji sat vremena kako bi istisnuli višak vode, ali taj korak uopće nije nužan. Oba komada tofua prerežite po debljini na pola, tako da dobijete oko 1 centimetar debele šnite. Tofu dobro začinite solju i paprom.

Neprijanjajuću tavu stavite na srednje jaku vatru i pustite da se dobro zagrije. Premažite tavu uljem, pa rasporedite po njoj šnite tofua. Nemojte tofu uopće dirate i kuhajte ga oko 5 minuta sa svake strane, da se zahrska i dobije zlatnu boju.

Dok se tofu peče, napravite umak tako da pomiješate sve sastojke dok sve ne bude glatko i kremasto. Kada se tofu zahrskao na obje strane, premažite ga pripremljenim umakom. Sada ga još po pola minute zapecite na obje strane tako da se fino karamelizira. Poslužite toplo ili hladno.

Creamy Lentil and Cauliflower Curry (vegan) / Kremasti curry od leće i cvjetače (veganski)

This dish is absolutely amazing so I am definitely throwing it into our weekday meal rotation. I decided to serve the curry over rice to get even more meals out of it and sorted pretty much a whole week’s worth of food with one cooking. Also, I threw in the whole cauliflower stalk and leaves together with everything else, so nothing went to waste here.

imgp8106

imgp8099

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields 8 servings / 0.79 EUR per serving / 6.37 EUR for all)

2 tbsp sunflower seed oil (0.03 EUR)

2 onions (0.20 EUR)

4 garlic cloves (0.13 EUR)

1 chili pepper (0.13 EUR)

4 tomatoes (1.07 EUR)

1 head of cauliflower (1.33 EUR)

2 tbsp curry powder (0.27 EUR)

1 tsp salt (0.01 EUR)

2 tbsp dried parsley (0.13 EUR)

2 cups green lentils (0.80 EUR)

1 can of full-fat coconut cream (2.00 EUR)

4 cups veggie broth (0.27 EUR)

imgp8102

imgp8100

METHOD:

Peel, wash and chop up all the vegetables. Don’t throw away any leaves or stalk of your cauliflower, just chop those up finely as well. Rinse lentils under running water in a colander. In a large pot, saute the onion on oil on high heat for a few minutes until slightly translucent. Throw in garlic and chili pepper, stir and cook for just a minute until fragrant, before adding in the tomatoes, the cauliflower stalk and any thick stems. Reserve the green part of leaves and cauliflower florets to add in later. Stir and cook for a few minutes. Add in curry powder, salt, parsley, lentils, coconut cream and veggie broth, then bring to a rolling boil.

Once your curry is boiling, reduce heat and simmer with a lid on for about 30 minutes. Stir occasionally and add a splash of water if needed. After 30 minutes stir in cauliflower florets and green parts of leaves, then cook for additional 10-15 minutes, until cauliflower is done to your liking. Serve over a bed of cooked rice.

Ovo jelo je jako ukusno, pa ću ga radi toga definitivno ubaciti u naš redovan tjedni meni. Pošto sam curry odlučila poslužiti uz kuhanu rižu, dobili smo još više porcija i sa jednim kuhanjem sam riješila prehrambene potrebe za skoro cijeli tjedan (hura!!!). Također, iskoristila sam ne samo cvjetiće karfijola, već i cijelu stabljiku i listove, pa se ništa nije bacilo.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 8 porcija / 6,09 kn po porciji / 48,71 kn za sve)

2 žlice suncokretovog ulja (0.20 EUR)

2 luka (1,50 kn)

4 češnja češnjaka (1,00 kn)

1 chili papričica (1,00 kn)

4 rajčice (8,00 kn)

1 glavica cvjetače (10,00 kn)

2 žlice curry praha (2,00 kn)

1 žličica soli (0,01 kn)

2 žlice sušenog peršina (1,00 kn)

2 šalice zelene leće (6,00 kn)

1 konzerva punomasnog kokosovog mlijeka (15,00 kn)

4 šalice povrtnog temeljca (2,00 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Ogulite, operite i nasjeckajte svo povrće. Listove i stabljiku cvjetače nemojte baciti, već i njih fino nasjeckajte. Isperite leću u cjediljci pod tekućom vodom. U velikom loncu na ulju dinstajte par minuta luk na jakoj vatri, sve dok ne postane staklast. Ubacite češnjak i čili papričicu, promiješajte, te kuhajte samo minutu da sve zamiriši. Dodajte rajčice i tvrde stabljike cvjetače, s time da zelene dijelove i same cvjetiće sačuvate za kraj. Promiješajte i kuhajte nekoliko minuta. Ubacite curry, sol, peršin, leću, kokosovo mlijeko i temeljac, te pustite da zavrije.

Kada sve zavrije, smanjite vatru i kuhajte sa odškrinutim poklopcem tridesetak minuta, uz povremeno miješanje. Po potrebi dodajte malo vode, a nakon 30 minuta ubacite još i cvjetiće karfijola i zeleno lišće. Kuhajte još 10-15 minuta, dok cvjetača ne bude skuhana prema vašem ukusu. Poslužite preko kuhane riže.

Cannellini Bean and Peanut Butter Hummus (vegan) / Humus od bijelog graha sa maslacem od kikirikija (veganski)

We had a bunch of Cannellini beans at home so I decided to whip them up into a hummus. It turned out super creamy and delicious, so I can’t wait to have it over pasta and as a snack. I also cooked up my own beans, which is always a great idea, to not only save on money, but to also season the beans to your liking while they are cooking. Of course, feel free to use canned beans if you are in a hurry (I often do that as well), but the next time you have some extra time on your hands cook up some beans.

imgp8123

imgp8118

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields 1 large jar / 1.27 EUR)

3 cups cooked cannellini beans (0.60 EUR)

1 tsp salt (0.01 EUR)

1 tsp freshly ground black pepper (0.07 EUR)

½ tsp garlic powder (0.03 EUR)

1 tbsp lemon juice (0.07 EUR)

1-2 tbsp bean cooking liquid or water (–)

3 tbsp peanut butter (0.40 EUR)

2 tbsp olive oil (0.09 EUR)

imgp8119

METHOD:

Add the beans to a food processor with salt, pepper, garlic powder and lemon juice. Pulse until creamy and if needed add a bit of water or bean cooking liquid. Add in peanut butter and olive oil, then pulse once more until everything is well incorporated. Taste and adjust seasonings. Serve over pasta, with veggies, or as a dressing.

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

Pošto smo doma imali popriličnu količinu bijelog graha, odlučila sam na brzinu smutiti humus koji je na kraju ispao jako fini i kremasti, tako da sam jedva dočekala da ga sparim sa nekom tjesteninom ili snackom. Također, grah sam sama skuhala što je uvijek odlična opcija jer onda sami možete dozirati arome i začine dok se grah kuha. Naravno, ako vam se žuri u ovom receptu možete upotrijebiti i grah iz konzerve (što ja također često radim), ali idući puta kada ćete imati viška vremena napravite si tu uslugu i sami skuhajte svoj grah.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 1 veliku teglu / 9,42 kn)

3 šalice kuhanog bijelog graha (4,50 kn)

1 žličica soli (0,01 kn)

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

½ žličice češnjaka u prahu (0,25 kn)

1 žlica limunovog soka (0,50 kn)

1-2 žlice tekućine od kuhanja graha ili obične vode (–)

3 žlice kikiriki maslaca (3,00 kn)

2 žlice maslinovog ulja (0,66 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Grah, sol, papar, češnjak i limunov sok ubacite u multipraktik. Pulsirajte dok ne bude kremasto, a prema potrebi dodajte mrvicu vode ili tekućine od kuhanja graha. Dodajte kikiriki maslac i maslinovo ulje, pa još jednom propulsirajte da se sve sjedini. Poslužite preko tjestenine, sa povrćem ili kao dressing.

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

Chocolate Chia and Flax Pudding (vegan) / Čokoladni puding od chie i lana (veganski)

If you are in search of new healthy breakfast ideas, this recipe might be just the thing for you. It’s awesome for meal prep and can later be enjoyed also as a healthy snack or desert. Of course, you can substitute sugar with stevia to also make this keto friendly, or use some other healthier sweetener options, but honestly, I was okay with a bit of sugar in it, as the recipe below yields multiple servings.

imgp8111

imgp8107

imgp8108

imgp8109

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields 4 generous servings / 0.58 EUR per serving / 2.32 EUR for all)

2 tbsp raw cacao powder (0.27 EUR)

2 tbsp sugar (0.01 EUR)

½ cup flax meal (0.13 EUR)

Good pinch of salt (0.01 EUR)

2 cups plant based milk (0.80 EUR)

1 tsp pure vanilla extract (0.03 EUR)

½ cup chia seeds (0.80 EUR)

Optional:

2 tbsp slivered almonds for topping (0.27 EUR)

imgp8111

METHOD:

In a bowl, whisk together cacao powder, sugar, flax meal and salt. Add in milk and vanilla, then stir well until sugar is melted and everything is well incorporated. Add in the chia seeds and stir to combine. Transfer the pudding into a big mason jar, close tightly and give it a good shake. Refrigerate overnight, so the pudding has time to thicken. Sprinkle with slivered almonds right before serving.

The pudding will keep refrigerated in a tightly closed jar for at least five days.

Ako ste u potrazi za nekim novim zdravim doručkom, ovaj recept bi mogao biti baš za vas. Super je jer se može prirediti unaprijed, pa kasnije imate spreman ne samo doručak, već i zdravi snack ili desert. Naravno, možete zamijeniti šećer sa stevijom pa će ovo jelo biti i izvrsno za one koji su na keto dijeti. Također, možete upotrijebiti i neke druge zdravije opcije zaslađivača, ali meni iskreno malo šećera nije smetalo jer je ovaj recept ionako za više porcija.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 4 porcije / 4,33 kn po porciji / 17,31 kn za sve)

2 žlice sirovog kakao praha (2,00 kn)

2 žlice šećera (0,10 kn)

½ šalice mljevenog lana (1,00 kn)

Dobar prstohvat soli (0,01 kn)

2 šalice veganskog mlijeka (6,00 kn)

1 žličica ekstrakta od vanilije (0,20 kn)

½ šalice chia sjemenki (6,00 kn)

Dodatno po želji:

2 žlice badema u listićima za posipanje (2,00 kn)

PRIPREMA:

U zdjelici pomiješajte kakao, šećer, lan i sol. Dodajte mlijeko i vaniliju, pa miješajte sve dok se šećer ne rastopi i sastojci se ne sjedine. Sada dodajte i chiu, te još jednom dobro promiješajte. Preselite puding u staklenku, čvrsto zatvorite i protresite. Stavite u hladnjak preko noći da se puding zgusne. Netom prije posluživanja posipajte listićima badema.

Ovaj puding će u hermetički zatvorenoj posudi u hladnjaku držati barem pet dana.

Post-Holiday Detox Miso Soup (vegan) / Miso juha za post-blagdanski detox (veganska)

I don’t know about you, but I am ready to get some veggies into my system. The holidays were generally a carb laden rollercoaster, so I think that enough is enough. Therefore, this soup happened. It has an abundance of greens, is light and yet sufficiently filling, but also tastes amazing.

IMGP8053

IMGP8046

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields 6 generous servings / 1.41 EUR per serving / 8.44 EUR for all)

2 tbsp sunflower seed oil (0.03 EUR)

1 large leek (0.53 EUR)

4 carrots (0.40 EUR)

8 large Portobello mushrooms (1.07 EUR)

3 garlic cloves (0.10 EUR)

½ of medium sized kale head (0.33 EUR)

½ of medium sized cauliflower head (0.66 EUR)

2 cups frozen peas (0.40 EUR)

Block of smoked tofu (1.00 EUR)

Pinch of salt (0.01 EUR)

Pinch of freshly ground black pepper (0.02 EUR)

1 tsp dried red pepper flakes (0.07 EUR)

6 cups vegetable broth (0.40 EUR)

2 tbsp miso paste (0.53 EUR)

250 grams rice vermicelli (2.76 EUR)

Handful of fresh parsley (0.13 EUR)

IMGP8050

IMGP8048

METHOD:

Wash, peel and chop up all of the veggies, mushrooms and tofu. Place a large pot with oil on high heat and sauté the white part of leek for a few minutes until slightly translucent. Add in carrots, mushrooms and garlic, then cook those down for about five minutes. Now throw in the remaining green part of leek, kale, cauliflower, peas, tofu, salt, black pepper and red pepper flakes. Cover everything with veggie broth and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer with a lid cracked open for about 15 minutes, until veggies are softened and cooked through. Remove from heat.

Dissolve miso paste in half a cup of cooking liquid and stir it into the soup. Be sure that the soup is off heat at that point. You don’t want miso to boil because it will then lose its health benefits from good bacteria.

While your soup is cooking, cook the rice vermicelli in a separate pot according to cooking instructions to al dente. Once everything is ready, place some rice noodles in a bowl and cover with miso soup. Sprinkle with fresh parsley and serve warm.

Ne znam za vas, ali ja sam spremna da u sebe ubacim brdo zelenjave. Blagdani su uglavnom bili maraton u prežderavanju ugljikohidratima, pa mislim da tome treba stati na kraj. I tako se desila ova juha koja je nakrcana povrćem, lagana, no ujedno i prilično zasitna i super fina.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 6 izdašnih porcija / 10,60 kn po porciji / 63,61 kn za sve)

2 žlice suncokretovog ulja (0,20 kn)

1 veliki poriluk (4,00 kn)

4 mrkve (3,00 kn)

8 većih šampinjona (8,00 kn)

3 češnja češnjaka (0,75 kn)

½ srednje glavica kelja (2,50 kn)

½ srednje glavica cvjetače (5,00 kn)

2 šalice smrznutog graška (3,00 kn)

1 dimljeni tofu (7,50 kn)

Prstohvat soli (0,01 kn)

Prstohvat svježe mljevenog crnog papra (0,15 kn)

1 žličica sušenog chilija u pahuljicama (0,50 kn)

6 šalica povrtnog temeljca (3,00 kn)

2 žlice miso paste (4,00 kn)

250 g tankih rižinih rezanaca (20,00 kn)

Pregršt svježeg peršina (1,00 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Operite, ogulite i fino nasjeckajte svo povrće, gljive i tofu. Veliki lonac sa uljem stavite na jaku vatru, pa par minuta dinstajte bijeli dio poriluka, sve dok ne postane staklast. Ubacite mrkve, gljive i češnjak, pa kuhajte jedno pet minuta. Sada dodajte preostali zeleni dio poriluka, kelj, cvjetaču, grašak, tofu, sol, papar i čili. Sve zalijte temeljcem i pustite da zavrije. Smanjite vatru, pa krčkajte sa odškrinutim poklopcem 15-tak minuta, dok povrće ne omekša i ne bude kuhano. Maknite s vatre.

Miso pastu rastopite u oko pola šalice tekućine od kuhanja, pa umiješajte sve to natrag u juhu. Pazite da vam juha više nije na vatri jer miso ne smije zavrijeti, pošto će onda izgubiti sva zdrava svojstva od dobrih bakterija.

Dok vam se juha kuha, skuhajte rižine rezance al dente u posebnom loncu prema uputama na pakiranju. Kada je sve spremno, rižine rezance stavite u zdjelicu pa obilno zalijte miso juhom. Posipajte svježim peršinom i poslužite toplo.

Broccoli and Lentil Stew (Vegan) / Varivo od brokule i leće (vegansko)

Hello, friends! We are at the end of 2018 and it’s somewhat hard to believe that a whole year is already over. I hope that 2018 was kind to you, but that 2019 is even better. If you are in a rush to wrap up things before you start with festivities, the recipe below is exactly what you need in order to quickly put some delicious and nutritious food on the table.

IMGP8024

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields 6 servings / 0.82 EUR per serving / 4.90 EUR for all)

2 tbsp sunflower seed oil (0.03 EUR)

2 onions (0.20 EUR)

6 garlic cloves (0.20 EUR)

1 head of broccoli (1.00 EUR)

1 tbsp sweet Hungarian paprika (0.07 EUR)

1 tsp smoked paprika (0.07 EUR)

1 tsp dried coriander (0.07 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)

1 tsp Gochujang – Korean chili paste (0.07 EUR)

1 box tomato puree (0.47 EUR)

1 can diced tomatoes (0.67 EUR)

2 cups dried red lentils (1.33 EUR)

4 cups vegetable broth (0.27 EUR)

Small bunch of fresh parsley (0.27 EUR)

IMGP8025

METHOD:

Wash, peel and chop up all the veggies. Also, don’t throw away your broccoli stems! Those are totally edible and packed with nutrients. Just peel and discard the outer layer of the stem and finely chop up the rest. Rinse lentils in a colander under running water.

Add oil to a big pot on high heat and saute the onions for a few minutes, until slightly translucent. Dump in minced garlic and chopped broccoli stem and cook for about five minutes, to soften a bit. Reserve the broccoli florets for later. Add in Hungarian and smoked paprika, coriander, garlic powder, salt, black pepper and bay leaf. Stir for about a minute, just until the flavors from spices bloom. Now add in Gochujang, tomato puree, diced tomatoes, lentils and veggie broth, give a good stir and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and cook with a lid cracked open for about 30 minutes, while stirring occasionally. After 30 minutes, add in broccoli florets and parsley. Stir and cook for another 5-10 minutes, until the broccoli is cooked to your liking.

Serve warm or save for later, as this dish reheats wonderfully.

PRIPREMA:

Operite, ogulite i fino nasjeckajte svo povrće. Nemojte ni slučajno baciti stabljiku od brokule jer je ne samo jestiva, već i nutritivno jako bogata. Jednostavno ogulite vanjski sloj stabljike i to bacite, a ostatak fino nasjeckajte. Leću isperite u cjediljci pod tekućom vodom.

Ulje stavite u veći lonac na jaku vatru, pa par minuta dinstajte luk dok ne postane staklast. Dodajte češnjak i sjeckanu stabljiku brokule, te kuhajte jedno pet minuta da sve malo omekša. Cvjetiće brokule stavite na stranu za kasnije. Ubacite slatku i dimljenu papriku, korijander, češnjak u prahu, sol, papar i lovorov list. Sve promiješajte i ostavite samo minutu dok začini ne zamiriše. Sada dodajte Gochujang, pasiranu i sjeckanu rajčicu, leću i povrtni temeljac, dobro promiješajte i pustite da zavrije. Smanjite vatru pa uz povremeno miješanje krčkajte sa odškrinutim poklopcem oko 30 minuta. Nakon 30 minuta dodajte cvjetiće brokule i svježi peršin, promiješajte te kuhajte još 5-10 minuta, dok brokula ne bude kuhana po vašem ukusu

Poslužite odmah ili spremite za kasnije, jer se ovo jelo super podgrijava.
