Warm vegan vegetable stew

Danish recipe below

Even though we still have some warm and long late summer days here in Denmark, you feel a change in the weather. A subtle feeling preparing us for fall and winter. Maybe it is the late-summer-season berries or the ripe apples. Or the mornings getting a little cooler. I like this time of the year, just before everything changes and the colours of fall are explording all around us.

The chilly fall calls for sweaters and extra socks. It calls for indoor activities, hot chocolate and mommys pancakes.. It also calls for warmer food. The other day I made this easy, cheap vegetable stew full of taste. I made it with quinoa, but you can use rice, potatoes or even just a piece of bread instead.

You can spice it up with a little bit of sriracha sauce if you prefere that.

Tilberedning: 45 minutter

  • 6 medium gulerødder
  • 3-4 stængler bladselleri (også bladene på toppen)
  • 1 zucchini (squash)
  • ½ broccoli
  • 1 lille dåse majs (brug dem uden tilføjet sukker)
  • 6 tomater / 1 dåse flåede tomater
  • 2-3 dl vand (mindre hvis du bruger dåsetomater)
  • 1 tsk kokosolie
  • 1 tsk sennepsfrø
  • 1 tsk stødt koriander
  • 1 tsk knust spidskommen
  • 1 tsk tørrede krydderurter efter eget valg
  • En smule æblecidereddike
  • Havsalt + peber
  • 1 dl quinoa + 2 dl vand
  • 1 avocado
  • 2 håndfulde babyspinatblade / anden salat
  • 1 håndfuld af dine yndlingskrydderurter
  • 1 håndful cherrytomater
  • Srirachasauce hvis du vil have retten lidt stærkere

Skær alle grøntsagerne i grove mundrette bidder. Sæt broccoli, zucchini og tomater til side.

Opvarm en gryde med kokosolie. Kom alle krydderierne i og rør rundt et par minutter. Tilsæt selleri og gulerødder og lad det stå et par minutter. Tilsæt nu tomater og vand, eller de hakkede dåsetomater. Bring det hele i kog, skru herefter ned for varmen og lad det simre i 30 minutter.

Tilbered quinoaen: Skyl den grundigt under koldt vand. Kom quinoa og vand og lidt salt i en gryde og bring det i kog. Skru herefter ned for varmen og lad det småkoge ca 15 minutter, eller til alt vandet er væk. Stil det til side.

Efter 30 minutter tilsættes broccoli, zucchini og majs, samt evt lidt ekstra vand. Lad det koge yderligere 10 minutter. Smages til med æblecidereddike, salt og peber. Tilsæt sriracha hvis du vil have det lidt stærkere.

Tilbered skålene med friske spinatblade, quinoa, cherrytomater og grøntsagsretten. Kom ½ avocado samt friskhakkede krydderurter på toppen.
