A perfect bowl of carrot salad

I took the idea of this carrot salad from one of the Jamie Oliver's 30 minute meals. This time it was from 'curry rogan josh, fluffy rice, carrot salad, poppadoms, flatbread, beer'. Just the curry, rice and flatbread I'll leave for tomorrow, and most probably there's no chance to get poppadoms in Turkey and the beer I'll leave for my hubby. But the salad was great especially at this time of the year when fresh tomatoes and cucumbers became so expensive. I didn't use my food processor to grate my carrots but instead used a lovely peeler with some spikes to julliene them. It added more crunch but definitely it took some time.

What we need:

3 carrots, washed and peeled
2 cm piece of ginger, washed and peeled
a bunch of parsley
1 fresh red chilli
3 tbsp of almond flakes
1 lemon juice
1/2 orange juice ( it just goes so well with carrots)
3 tbsp of olive oil
salt and black pepper

What we have to do:

1. Grate or slice your carrots into a bowl.
2. Chop chilli pepper and finely grate the ginger. Put into the carrot bowl.
3. Chop the parsley and add into the salad bowl.
4. Squeeze your lemon and orange juice, season with salt and pepper, pour in your olive oil and mix into the salad.
5. If you want, toast your almonds on a hot pan and sprinkle on the salad. Now it's time to enjoy it!

Receptas Lietuviskai - Nuostabus dubenelis morku salotu


Dar karta pasiskolinau siu morku salotu ideja is Jamie Oliver naujos laidos 'jamie's 30 minute meals', tik zinoma teko pakeisti kelis ingridientus, kad tiktu mano seimos skoniui ( na mes nelabai megstame sviezias kalendras, nors kalendru seklos patinka), bei naudojau tai, ka galima rasti vietinese parduotuvese. Visa meniu planuoju gaminti rytoj, nes megstam Indiskus patiekalus, tik rogan joch pasta gaminsiu pati pagal Jamie recepta is 'Maisto Ministerija', tik jau tai uztruks siek tiek daugiau nei 30 minuciu, bet juk rytoj sestadienis, todel galiu gaminti letai ir megaudamasi. Sios salotos tikrai puikios, vien todel, kad puikiai tinka dabartiniam metu laikui ( sakot pasnigo Lietuvoje?), beto juk pomidoru ir agurku kainos kazkodel visai nepatrauklios. Na Stambule pomidoru kilogramas apie 6lyras kainuoja, o tai virs 10 litu! Na tikrai neverti jie tokios kainos, kai aplink kalnai svieziu morku, kopustu, kalafijoru, ir kitu gerybiu. Taigi prie recepto:

Reikia:

3 nuplautu ir nuluptu morku
2cm gabaliuko imbiero, nuplauto ir nulupto
saujele svieziu petrazoliu arba kalendru
1 sviezio raudono chili pipiro
3 v.s. migdolu ploksteliu
1 citrinos sulciu
1/2 apelsino sulciu ( tiesiog jis pasakiskai dera su morkom)
3 v.s. alyvuogiu aliejaus
druskos ir juoduju pipiru

Gaminam:

1. Morkas sutarkuojame tarka ar virtuviniu kombainu, nors as naudojau specialia pjaustykle, kad gautusi siaudeliai, nes tada morkos buna traskesnes.
2. Chili susmulkinti, nulupta imbiera sutarkuoti smulkia tarka ir viska sudeti i dubeneli su morkomis.
3. Susmulkinti petrazoles ir taip pat sudeti i salotas.
4. Ispausti citrinos ir apelsino sultis, pagardinti druska ir pipirais, apslakstyti aliejumi ir gerai ismaisyti salotas.
5. Sausoje keptuveje, jei netingite, paskrudinkyte migdolus ir suberkite ant salotu. Na o dabar skanaujame! :)
