Braised Sauerkraut with Sausage and Potatoes / Dinstano kiselo zelje sa kobasicom i krumpirima

If you are a fan of sauerkraut and quick meals, definitely give this one a go. I’ve had some homemade sauerkraut on hand to use up in this dish and it turned out fantastic. My sauerkraut was a combo of cabbage and carrots which gave the dish some additional sweetness. It all paired really well with smoky sausages and I can’t wait to make this again. Also, since my sauerkraut was pretty salty, no additional salt was needed in the dish.

Ako ste ljubitelj kiselog zelja i brzih jela, definitivno isprobajte recept u nastavku. Ja sam upotrijebila svoje domaće kiselo zelje i konačni je rezultat ispao savršen. Također, u mojem je zelju bilo i malo ribane mrkve koja je jelu dala još malo ekstra slatkoće. Sve se to odlično sparilo sa dimljenim kobasicama i jedva čekam ponovno pripremiti ovaj recept. Također, pošto je moje zelje bilo dosta slano, uopće ništa nije trebalo dodatno soliti.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 4 porcije / 5,04 kn po porciji / 20,15 kn za sve)

2 žlice suncokretovog ulja (0,20 kn)

½ žličice češnjaka u prahu (0,25 kn)

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

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

1 žlica sušenog peršina (0,50 kn)

1 žličica smeđeg šećera (0,10 kn)

1 lovorov list (0,10 kn)

4 veća krumpira (3,00 kn)

2 šalice povrtnog temeljca (1,00 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Operite, ogulite i nasjeckajte svo povrće. Kobasicu narežite na tanke novčiće. Ulje i luk stavite u dublju tavu na srednjoj vatri te dinstajte nekoliko minuta da luk postane staklast. Ubacite kobasicu, zelje i češnjak, promiješajte te kratko kuhajte dok se sve blago ne karamelizira. Sada dodajte koncentrat rajčice, dimljenu i slatku papriku, češnjak u prahu, čili, papar, peršin, šećer, lovor, krumpire i temeljac. Dobro promiješajte, pustite da zavrije, pa smanjite vatru. Krčkajte sa odškrinutim poklopcem 30-tak minuta dok se krumpiri skroz ne skuhaju i ne omekšaju, s time da s vremena na vrijeme sve dobro promiješate, a prema potrebi dodate još mrvicu vode.

Već i vrapci na granama znaju da obožavam jela koja se kuhaju u jednom loncu i obožavam tjesteninu. Stoga tjestenina iz jednog lonca kotira prilično visoko na ljestvici mojih životnih prioriteta. Špageti Puttanesca kao koncept postoje već preko pedeset godina, a ovo je moja verzija talijanskog klasika.

U međuvremenu nasjeckajte inčune i sušene rajčice, češnjak narežite na tanke ploške, te grubo narežite masline.

Kad se cherry rajčice karameliziraju u tavu dodajte inčune, sušene rajčice, češnjak, masline, čili i origano. Kuhajte koju minutu da sve zamiriši prije nego ubacite i špagete, sol, papar i vodu. Vodite računa o tome da su špageti potopljeni, pa pustite da sve zavrije i čvrsto poklopite. Smanjite vatru i krčkajte 10-15 minuta dok špageti ne budu gotovi, a povremeno sve dobro promiješajte. Po potrebi dodajte još mrvicu vode.

Poslužite odmah sa dobrom dozom ribanog tvrdog sira tipa parmezan ili Grana Padano.

IMGP8600

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields 4 servings / 1.33 EUR per serving / 5.31 EUR for all)

For the chicken:

1 large boneless skinless chicken breast (2.00 EUR)

1 tbsp sunflower seed oil (0.01 EUR)

1 tbsp soy sauce (0.07 EUR)

Good pinch of salt (0.01 EUR)

Good pinch of freshly ground black pepper (0.02 EUR)

For the stir-fry:

3 squares of Chinese noodles (1.60 EUR)

2 tbsp sunflower seed oil, divided (0.03 EUR)

3 cups of shredded purple cabbage (0.20 EUR)

Good pinch of salt (0.01 EUR)

2 tbsp soy sauce (0.13 EUR)

1 tsp toasted sesame oil (0.13 EUR)

IMGP8597

METHOD:

Cut the chicken into thin strips. Toss it with oil, soy sauce, salt and pepper and leave to rest in the fridge for at least 30 minutes, but best overnight. In the meantime, cook the noodles according to package instructions to al dente. Rinse under cold water to get rid of residual heat and stop the cooking process, then drain. Wash, peel and chop up all the veggies.

Place a wok or a deep skillet on medium high heat and allow to thoroughly warm up. Add in a bit of oil then fry up the chicken until crispy. It’s best to do this in two batches, so you don’t overcrowd the pan. Remove all the chicken from the wok and set aside. Add in the remaining oil and dump in the onions, peppers and cabbage. Cook for a few minutes to slightly caramelize before adding in minced garlic and Gochujang. Give a good stir and cook briefly. Dump in the noodles, chicken, soy sauce and sesame oil. Cook for about five minutes, until everything is thoroughly warmed up and the noodles at the bottom of the pan start crisping up slightly. Taste and adjust seasoning, then serve immediately.

Hej haj, evo vam još jedan recept za nudlse koji možete isprobati. Takvih nikako ne možemo imati viška, zar ne?

SASTOJCI:

(Za 4 porcije / 9,93 kn po porciji / 39,71 kn za sve)

Za meso:

1 velika pileća prsa bez kostiju i kože (15,00 kn)

1 žlica suncokretovog ulja (0,10 kn)

1 žlica soja sosa (0,50 kn)

Dobar prstohvat soli (0,01 kn)

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

Za wok:

3 kocke kineskih rezanaca (12,00 kn)

2 žlice suncokretovog ulja, podijeljene (0,20 kn)

1 veliki luk (0,75 kn kn)

2 zelene paprike (6,00 kn)

3 šalice ribanog ljubičastog kupusa (1,50 kn)

4 češnja češnjaka (1,00 kn)

1 žličica Gochujanga – korejske čili paste (0,50 kn)

2 žlice soja sosa (1,00 kn)

1 žličica tostiranog sezamovog ulja (1,00 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Piletinu narežite na tanke trakice. Pomiješajte sa uljem, soja sosom, soli i paprom, te ostavite u hladnjaku da se marinira minimalno pola sata, a najbolje preko noći. U međuvremenu skuhajte rezance prema uputama na pakiranju da budu al dente. Isperite ih dobro pod mlazom hladne vode da se prestanu kuhati od zaostale topline te ocijedite. Operite, ogulite i nasjeckajte svo povrće.

Wok ili duboku tavu stavite na srednje jaku vatru i pustite da se dobro ugrije. Dodajte malo ulja, pa na njemu ispržite piletinu dok ne bude hrskava. Za najbolje rezultate je najbolje to napraviti u dvije manje ture kako vam wok ne bi bio prenatrpan. Gotovu piletinu maknite iz woka i stavite na stranu. Dodajte u wok preostalo ulje, luk, paprike i kupus. Kuhajte oko pet minuta, da se povrće lagano karamelizira, pa onda ubacite sjeckani češnjak i Gochujang. Dobro promiješajte i još kratko kuhajte te dodajte tjesteninu, piletinu, soja sos i sezamovo ulje. Kuhajte jedno pet minuta da se sve dobro ugrije, a tjestenina na dnu woka blago zahrska. Kušajte i prilagodite začine, pa poslužite odmah.

Creamy Pea and Edamame Stew (including a vegan option) / Kremasto varivo od graška i boba (uključujući i vegansku opciju)

This stew is a clean-up-your-fridge type of dish, which means you can basically chug in anything your heart desires. I had various leftovers floating around, so this is what I came up with. There’s also a tiny bit of pancetta in there as well, but if you’re vegetarian or vegan, feel free to just use smoked tofu instead.

IMGP8454

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields 6 servings / 0.60 EUR per serving / 3.60 EUR for all)

2 tbsp sunflower seed oil (0.03 EUR)

1 large onion (0.10 EUR)

4 garlic cloves (0.13 EUR)

3 carrots (0.30 EUR)

Small piece of pancetta (0.67 EUR)

1 tsp salt (0.01 EUR)

1 tsp freshly ground black pepper (0.07 EUR)

Good pinch of dried red pepper flakes (0.02 EUR)

1 tsp garlic powder (0.07 EUR)

1 tbsp sweet Hungarian paprika (0.07 EUR)

1 tsp dried basil (0.07 EUR)

1 bay leaf (0.03 EUR)

4 tbsp all-purpose flour (0.03 EUR)

6 cups veggie broth (0.40 EUR)

3 potatoes (0.20 EUR)

1 cup frozen peas (0.20 EUR)

1 cup frozen edamame beans (0.80 EUR)

1 tbsp tomato paste (0.13 EUR)

2 tbsp dried parsley (0.27 EUR)

IMGP8455

METHOD:

Wash, peel and finely dice all of the veggies and pancetta. Place deep pot on high heat and add in oil, onion, garlic and carrots. Saute for a few minutes, until veggies slightly soften up. Add in diced pancetta and cook for a few minutes to slightly crisp up before adding in salt, black pepper, red pepper flakes, garlic powder, Hungarian paprika, basil and bay leaf. Cook for a minute, just so the spices become fragrant.

Stir in flour then add about one to two cups of broth. Stir vigorously, so all the flour dissolves in broth and there are no clumps. If needed, add in a bit more broth to thin out the mixture. Then turn the heat down to medium and allow this mix to simmer for about ten minutes, while stirring frequently. After about ten minutes, gradually stir in the remaining broth. Add in diced potatoes, peas, edamame beans, tomato paste and parsley.

Bring to a rolling boil, then reduce heat and simmer with a lid cracked open for 30 minutes. Be sure to give an occasional good stir, so that nothing sticks to the bottom of the pot. Serve warm or portion out for later, as this stew reheats great.

Ovo varivo je onaj tip jela koji skuhate kada trebate počistiti hladnjak i špajzu, jer unutra bez problema možete utrpati svakakve ostatke. Osim raznog povrća, ja sam imala i mali komadićak pancete, pa sam i nju odlučila iskoristiti. Ako ste vi vegetarijanac ili vegan, slobodno umjesto pancete upotrijebite dimljeni tofu.

(Za 6 porcija / 4,46 kn po porciji / 26,76 kn za sve)

2 žlice suncokretovog ulja (0,20 kn)

1 veliki luk (0,75 kn)

4 češnja češnjaka (1,00 kn)

3 mrkve (2,25 kn)

Mali komadić pancete (5,00 kn)

1 žličica soli (0,01 kn)

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

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

1 žličica češnjaka u prahu (0,50 kn)

1 žlica slatke crvene paprike (0,50 kn)

1 žličica sušenog bosiljka (0,50 kn)

1 lovorov list (0,20 kn)

4 žlice glatkog brašna (0,20 kn)

6 šalica povrtnog temeljca (3,00 kn)

3 krumpira (1,50 kn)

1 šalica smrznutog graška (1,50 kn)

1 šalica smrznutog boba (6,00 kn)

1 žlica koncentrata od rajčice (1,00 kn)

2 žlice sušenog peršina (2,00 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Operite, ogulite i fino nasjeckajte svo povrće i pancetu. Stavite veliki lonac na jaku vatru i dodajte ulje, luk, češnjak i mrkve. Dinstajte nekoliko minuta da sve malo omekša. Ubacite sjeckanu pancetu, pa i nju kuhajte da se malo zahrska prije nego dodate sol, papar, čili, češnjak u prahu, papriku, bosiljak i lovor. Kuhajte minutu da začini zamiriše.

Umiješajte brašno, pa dodajte jednu do dvije šalice temeljca. Sve jako dobro promiješajte da se brašno skroz rastopi u temeljcu i ne bude grudica. Po potrebi razrijedite sa još malo temeljca, te smanjite vatru i uz učestalo miješanje krčkajte desetak minuta. Nakon kojih deset minuta postepeno umiješajte preostali temeljac. Dodajte krumpire, grašak, bob, koncentrat rajčice i peršin.

Pustite da varivo zavrije, smanjite vatru, te kuhajte sa odškrinutim poklopcem 30-tak minuta. S vremena na vrijeme sve dobro promiješajte kako se ništa ne bi uhvatilo za dno lonca. Poslužite odmah toplo, ili rasporedite u porcije za kasnije, s obzirom da se ovo varivo super podgrijava.
