Sushi / suši

IMG_2249

I always thought that making sushi at home was waaay too difficult to even attempt it, so I never did. I am also terrible at cooking rice… and then I moved out of my parents’ house and realized that sushi is way too expensive to buy it every time I crave it (which is literally every few days) so I finally tried to make it.
First you just cook the sushi rice (follow the instructions on the box) and let it chill. Then you take a damp towel and put on the nori sheet. Then you spread the rice thinly all over the sheet and place on your favorite fillings. I usually use thinly sliced cucumbers and avocado. You can also add a little bit of wasabi if you like your food spicy. And then comes the fun part. You carefully roll the sheet in a roll using a towel and slice it into little pieces or eat it as a giant algae burrito.
Vedno sem mislila, da je priprava sušija preveč zapletena, zato se ga nisem nikoli lotila delati doma… dokler se seveda nisem odselila od doma. Takrat sem ugotovila, da je suši predrag, da bi ga kupila vsakič, ko sem si to želela (kar je vsakih nekaj dni) in končno sem ga poskusila narediti sama.
Najprej po navodilih na vrečki skuhaš suši riž in ga pustiš da se ohladi. Nato vzameš vlažno brisačo in na njo položiš list nori alge. Čez celotno površino razporediš tanko plast riža in dodaš svoje najljubše nadeve. Jaz ponavadi uporabim avokado in kumarice. Z brisačo si pomagaš zviti rolico in jo razrežeš na majhne kolutke, ali pa jo poješ kar tako; kot ogromen burito iz alg.

 

Asian rice noodles / azijski riževi rezanci

This recipe is ideal for those times when you are just too tired to spend more time than necessary in the kitchen. It literally takes no more than 5 minutes. First you wash and cut your veggies (I usually use broccoli and carrots) and cut tofu in little cubes. Heat up some oil in the pan and soak your noodles in warm water. Then you fry tofu until it starts to get crispy, add your veggies, a splash of water, some soy sauce and a teaspoon of sirarcha. Cook everything until all the water evaporates, add the noodles and serve. I usually sprinkle on some sesame seeds and spring onions at the end and voila! The noodles are ready.

Ta recept je idealen za tiste dneve, ko si preveč utrujen za kuhanje. Vzame ti samo 5 minut. Najprej opereš in zrežeš zelenjavo (jaz ponavadi uporabim brokoli in korenček) ter tofu. V ponvi ali voku segreješ malo olja ter cvreš tofu, dokler ne začenja dobivati zlate barve. Dodaš zelenjavo, malo sojine omake in žlico pekoče omake. Zaliješ z malo vode in dodaš rezance. Ko voda izhlapi lahko rezance postrežeš. Ko so že na krožniku jih lahko posuješ z žlico sezamovih semen in mlado čebulo.

Coconut curry with chickpeas / kokosov kari z čičeriko

Curry is my favorite food ever! It has so many variations, so you can never get sick of it. First you sautée some onions in a pan and add your curry paste or powder. I also put in a teaspoon of cumin and tumeric. Then you add chopped tomatoes, chickpeas from a can and a cup of coconut milk (the fattier the better). You cook it on low heat until the chickpeas soften and it’s done! You can serve it with flatbread or rice.

Kari je definitivno ena izmed mojih najljubših jedi. Različic karija je toliko, da se ga res nikoli ne naveličaš. Najprej na malo olja popražiš čebulo in dodaš karijevo pasto ali prah in žličko kurkume in kumine. Dodaš še nekaj sesekljanih paradižnikov, čičeriko iz konzerve in skodelico (čim bolj mastnega) kokosovega mleka. Na nizki temperaturi kuhaš, dokler se čičerika ne zmehča in postrežeš z čapatijem ali rižem.

Mac and “cheese” / testenine z “sirom”

20170430_190523

This recipe is ideal for those of you who are vegan and really miss those creamy, cheesy sauces (this is so me). You will need a cup of soaked cashews, one cooked carrot, one cooked potato, half of a cup of nutritional yeast, one spoon of garlic powder and some salt and pepper. Blend those ingredients in a blender and add some coconut milk or water until you get a smooth, sauce–like texture. You can use this sauce as a pasta sauce, nacho cheese substitute, or make it a bit thicker and spread it on bread.

Ta recept je super za tiste vegane, ki tako kot jaz pogrešate kremne sirove omake. Potrebuješ skodelico namočenih indijskih oreščkov, en skuhan korenček, en skuhan krompir, pol skodelice kvasnih kosmičev, žlico česna v prahu in malo soli ter popra. Vse sestavine zmiksaš v blenderju in dodajaš vodo ali kokosovo mleko, dokler ne dobiš gladke, kremne teksture. Omako lahko uporabiš za testenine, kot nadomestek nacho sira, ali pa narediš malo bolj gosto verzijo in si jo namažeš na kruh.

Meringues / španski vetrci

I saved the best for last. This is a simple trick by which you use the liquid from canned chickpeas that you usually pour down the drain. Just whisk the liquid until soft peaks form, mix in half a cup of powdered sugar and put little dollops of the mixture onto lined baking tray. Bake for about 60–90 minutes in an oven at 100°C.

Najboljše sem prihranila za konec. Tole je super trik, kako porabiti tekočino iz konzerve čičerike. Tekočino stepeš v sneg, dodaš pol skodelice sladkorja v prahu in maso z žlico razporediš v majhne kupčke na pekač obložen z peki papirjem. Pečeš jih od 60 do 90 minut na 100°C.

Let me know if you will try out these recipes and bon appétit!
