Horseradish soup with white root vegetables/Juha od hrena i korjenastog povrća

For Easter mood this simple soup for body and soul….with fresh horseradish in the mail role. For the long time I did not eat horseradish, not even for Easter, because of its spicy taste. But, with lots of different white root vegetables and simple spices which let horseradish in a mail role, the whole taste of it is very delicious.

Without milk, cooking cream and butter this soup is real delicacy for vegan lovers, and with little bit of smoked Solomon it is elegant vegetarian dish. Density of soup gives different root vegetables of course white, and with all respect I can say that it is winter healthy super food. I used last piece of my delicious beetroot bread (recipe is on the blog) to make croutons and monotony of white soup is broken with green herbs and pink color of smoked Solomon.

-Croatian version-

Ususret Uskrsu jedna jednostavna juha koja grije dušu i tijelo jer je glavni sastojak svježi hren. Dugo sam se borila prihvatiti hren u prehrani, čak ga ni za Uskrs nisam jela, bio mi je nekako uvijek jako ljut. Međutim, uz dodatak raznog povrća i jednostavnih začina, svježi hren poprima jednu posebnu notu. Bez mlijeka, vrhnja za kuhanje i maslaca ova juha je prava delicija za vegane, a uz dodatak dimljenog lososa pretvara se u elegantno vegetarijansko jelo. Gustoću juhi daju različito korjenasto povrće, naravno bijele boje i s pravom ova juha nosi epitet zimske, zdrave bombe :). Iskoristila sam posljednji komadić prefinog kruha od cikle (recept je na blogu) za croutonse te monotoniju bijele boje juhe razbila dodatkom zelenih klica i dimljenog lososa nježno ružičaste boje.

Potrebno:

200-300g svježeg hrena, naribano na sitniji ribež

2 kom korijena peršina narezana na manje kocke

2 kom pastrnaka narezana na manje kocke

½ srednje velike glave celera, narezana na manje kocke

Pola glavice luka, sitno nasjeckano

1 jabuka, naribana

Bijeli dio jednog poriluka, prerezati napola te narezati na tanke rezance

Voda

Malo maslinovog ulja

Muškatni orah

Sol i papar

Ostalo:

Croutons od kruha od cikle

Klice i malo ribanog svježeg hrena za dekoraciju

Dimljeni losos

Sitno sjeckani vlasac

Postupak:

Zagrijati ulje i kratko prodinstati luk. Dodati narezano povrće i kratko dinstati, dodati vodu i naribanu jabuku te ostaviti da se kuha.

 

Začiniti muškatnim orahom, soli i paprom te kuhati dok povrće ne omekani.

Purirati povrće te procijediti kroz sitno cjedilo, pomoću pjenjače dobro iscijediti svu tekućinu iz povrća. Procijeđenu juhu vratiti na štednjak, zagrijati te po potrebi začiniti.

Juha Vegan: Narezati kruh od cikle na sitnije kockice te na malo zagrijanog maslinovog ulja prepržiti na tavici. Dekorirati juhu te dodati malo zelene krese i krupnije ribanog svježeg hrena.

Juha Vegy: Pored croutonsa servirati malo dimljenog lososa ili dimljeni losos omotati oko komadića kruha te ukrasiti sitno rezanim vlascem.
