DIY Baby food \ Храна за бебе- Направи сам




Откако се роди моето злато најголем ден од денот поминувам со него, чувајќи го, играјќи се со него и се разбира готвејќи за него. Ништо не ми дава поголемо задоволство од звукчето „ЊАМ ЊАМ“ кое го прави кога ќе му се допадне некое кашиче. Затоа решив да направам посебен дел на мојот блог посветен на храната за бебиња.

Since my baby boy was born I spend most of my time taking care of him, playing with him and YES cooking for him. there is nothing in the world that could make me happy as the pleasing sounds he makes as he enjoys some of the meals I have prepared for him. This is why I have decided to make a new page on my blog dedicated on DIY Baby food.

1. БРОКУЛА, МОРКОВ И РИБА
Broccoli, carrots and fish

Ова е многу едноставен рецепт за бебиња над 8 месеци. Рибата е богата со Омега 3 масни киселини и во комбинација со брокулата кашичкава ја прави исклучително здрава.
Состојки:

  • 2 мали гранчиња свежа брокула
  • 2 мали морковчиња
  • 20 гр. месо од пастрмка
Морковот и брокулата варете ги на пареа околу 25 мин. 
Рибата печете ја на 180 степени Целзиусови околу 45 мин. Кога ќе се олади убаво исчистете 20-тина грсма од месото. Препорачливо е рибата да е свежа и да не ја посолувате.
Откако ќе се подолади зеленчукот и месото ставете ги во тесен сад и блендирајте ги 30-тина секунди. Може да биде потребно и да додадете и малку превриена вода доколку смесата е многу сува.

This is a simple recipe for age 8 mounts and older. Rich in Omega 3 Fatty acids and in healthy nutrients.  
Ingredients:

  • 2 small broccoli branches
  • 2 small carrots
  • 20 gr. of fish meat.
Steam the vegetables about 25 minutes.
Bake the fish approximately 45 minutes on 180 degrees Celsius. Then clean a small peace from bones and skin. It would be god if the fish is fresh and if it has not been salted. Blend in all ingredients into a smooth pure. Serve on body temperature.

Вегебургер \ Veggie burger



Ова е вегетаријански рецепт кој е одличен за подготовка во ова време од годината, односно во времето на велигденските пости. Има голема количина на протеини и многу заситува.
Состојки:
  • 2 глави кромид
  • 1/2 чаша соини трошки
  • 200 гр. бел грав
  • 200 гр. свежи печурки
  • 2 моркови
  • 3 лаж. маслиново масло
  • 3 лаж. брашно
  • 1 лаж. буковец
  • 1 лаж. мешан зачин
  • бибер и сол по желба
Гравот и морковите се варат, а потоа се процедуваат и се пасираат рачно. Соја трошките се потопуваат со млака вода и се оставаат неколку минути да набабрат, па се додаваат во смесата. Се додаваат и ситно исечканите печурки и кромид.
Целата смеса се блендира за да се добие воедначена текстура, а потоа се додава брашното за да ја згусне и се додаваат зачините.
Вегебургерите се формираат со лажица и се пржат на загреана грил-тава премачкана со маслиново масло.

Cucumber and sour cream salad / Tarator / Таратор



A  very simple and refreshing summer salad. It is very easy to make, and it takes just a few minutes to prepare.

Ingredients:

  • 2 large fresh cucumbers
  • 3 cups of Greek-yogurt or low fat sour cream
  • salt
  • pepper
  • 1-2 garlic gloves 
  • 1 tbsp. dry dill
  • 1 tbsp. olive oil
For preparation peel the cucumber and cut it into small squares. Peel the garlic and chop it into very small peaces.
Mix it up with the yogurt and the spices. 
Sprinkle the olive oil and the dill on-top. 
Serve cooled.




The garlic regulates the body temperature, and cools you in a natural way. It also regulates the cholesterol level in the blood so its good to combine with high cholesterol meals to balance them.

Lentil soup / Леќа


My favorite all year long dish- The Lentil soup. My husband likes it too so this is a regular meal at our home. 
Just add some meat and it is a non-vegetarian meal, but i prefer it this way. It is very fulfilling and it has lots of protein even without the meat.

Ingredients:


  • 1 cup dry brown lentils
  • 1/2 cup dry red lentils
  • 1 onion 
  • 1 carrot 
  • 1 potato 
  • 1 green pepper 
  • garlic 
  • parsley
  • spices
Directions:
First put the brown and red lentils in a pot with water enough to cover them up. Bring them to boil and drain them from this water.
Then add fresh water up to half of the pot.
Chop all the other vegetables and add them into the water. Spice up with salt and pepper. Most of the flavor comes from the fresh garlic so don't save on it, or skip it!

Boil for about 1 hour and add water if needed or the soup will become very thick. 
When everything is nice and soft you need to make a final touch. 
Put 1/4 cup of oil on a pan and heat it up. Then add 1 tbsp. of flour and 1 tbsp. ground red pepper. Mix fast and pour the mixture into the soup while hot. This process is called "zaprzka" and it is used for most of soups in my country. 
The soup can be made without this step. 
All you need to do is add some oil directly into the soup and smash bled in the vegetables with hand blender directly into the pot. But I do recommend you trying the original recipe, and feel the oriental flavors.
Ah yes, and enjoy!

Simple potato salad


Simple and classic but it never gets old. This potato salad is a great side dish for many meals.

The ingredient list is short:
  • 1 kg potatoes
  • 2-3 onions
  • fresh parsley
  • salt
  • mixed spices
  • pepper
  • olive oil
  • apple cider 
And the preparation is even shorter! Peel the potatoes and boil them with some salt and mixed spices. When the potatoes start to fall apart and become soft, drain the water, and chop them on larger peaces.
Add in all other ingredients and mix well. 
This meal is best served cold, but will do just fine even warm.
And enjoy!
