Hej, hej🙂
Znova se malo oglašam in tokrat s čudovito jesensko solato. Podobno solato sem leto jedla za novo leto v Londonu, ko smo se družili z ljudmi iz različnih držav in kjer je vsak nekaj pripravil. Nekaj podobnega je prinesel en Nemec in jaz sem bila zaljubljena (v solato, ne v Nemca :D). vsebovala je peso, jabolka in pa koriandrova semena, zraven pa popraženi curryijevi listi, res eksplozija okusov. Malo moram priznat, da sem že pozabila na njo, pa sem bila pred kratkim znova v Londonu in sem se je spomnila, prav okušala sem jo v ustih, čeprav o solati niti sledi. Ko sem prispela domov, sem doma poiskala svežo peso, najdla res čudovite domače hruške, nabrala žajbelj, koriandrova semena pa sem še imela na zalogi. Bila sem v elementu in prepričana v to, da bo tudi moja solata, tako dobra, če ne še bolj🙂
Vas zanima če je res bila tako dobra, če ne še kje bolj? Jaaa, bila je super, tako sveža, hrustljava, da se o učinku praženega žajblja sploh ne pogovarjamo, ta je dal solati res zemeljski in rahlo oreščkasti okus, noro🙂
Vse skupaj sem zaključila z prelivom iz pomarančnega soka, olupka in malo svežega naribanega ingverja, njam, njam.
Da pa ne bom samo toliko razglabljala o tej solati, je tukaj še recept, da jo lahko sami poskusite in mi sporočite, kako se vam zdi, pa dober tek😉

Glasbena podlaga: She Always Takes it Black

Recept:
2 mali sveži pesi (ali ena velika)
1 hruška
pest žajbljevih listov
1 žlica koriandrovih semen

Preliv:
sok in olup ene bio pomaranče
1 čž naribanega ingverja
1/2 čž soli
2 žlici olivnega olja

Najprej naredimo preliv oz. dressing. Vse sestavine zmešamo skupaj in pustimo, da se okusi prepletejo.
Na rahlo prepražimo koriandrova semena, da zadišijo, nato jih malo zdrobimo v možnarju.
Žajbljevim listom odstranimo stebla in jih za na hitro  potopimo v vročo olje (pazimo, ker se hitro zažgejo), nato jih damo na papirnato brisačko in počakamo, da se ohladijo.
Na drobno naribano peso, hruško pa narežemo na trakove (lahko jo tudi naribamo, vendar se potem, ko solato premešamo hruška spremeni v rdečo barvo in je ne ločimo več od pese, tako pa jo ločimo vsaj po obliki). Potrosimo s semeni in z žajbljem, ter serviramo z prelivom.

Beetroot salad with pear, coriander seeds and sage
Hi there🙂
I have prepared a very special salad for you today. It’s similar to what I ate this new years eve in London. A friend from friend made a beetroot salad with apples, whole coriander seeds (with is the first time I actually tried them like that in a salad and i loved it, it gave a crunch element and it tasted very lemony, pure love) and curry leaves. I substituted the apples with pear and curry leaves with fried sage leaves, plus I made a different dressing. Now the moment of truth arrived,where I actually tasted it, and it was amazing, so fresh and I love the fried sage leaves, it gives the salad a nutty flavour, and the coriander leaves leave a very lemony aftertaste, you just got to love it🙂
Try it and let me know if you like it as much a s I do;)

Recipe:
2 small or 1 big fresh beetroot
1 pear
1 bunch fresh sage leaves
1 tbsp coriander seeds

Dressing:
juice and zest from 1 orange (can also be lemon, or lime would work to)
1 tsp freshly grated ginger
1/2 tsp salt
2 tbsp olive oil

First make the dressing, just mix every thing together and let it sit for a while, so that the flavours combine. Slightly toast the coriander seeds and crush them in a mortar.
Really quickly (be careful, because they burn really easy) fry the sage leaves and put them on a paper towel to cool down and crisp up. Thinly grate the beetroot and cut the pear in thin slices (I did this so that you can tell the difference, because once you mix the salat, everything turns purple). sprinkle on some coriander seeds and sage leaves and serve with the dressing. Enjoy!
