Spinach nest with leurd pesto
I seem to enjoy spring the most when I turn the markets green. Spinach, leurd, nettles as if the whole universe was one color. It is a pity not to take advantage of this season to fill ourselves with the energy that nature offers us. So today I propose a breakfast recipe in which the ingredients are the stars of the season: spinach and leurda, a kind of ying and yang that complement each other perfectly! Spinach nest with egg, bechamel sauce and leurd pesto.
Ingredients for two servings:
- 25 grams of flour
- 25 grams of butter
- 250 ml milk
- 2 eggs
Pesto de leurdă:
- a strong hand of leurd
- 1 clove of garlic
- 20 grams of parmesan
- 10 grams of pine seeds
- Olive oil
I washed the spinach and leurda:
I melted the butter in a pan and hardened the spinach together with the leurda:
When they hardened, I placed them in the shape of a nest in a tray lined with baking paper:
Bechamel sauce is called a "mother" sauce because once you prepare it you can make variations on the same theme and get at least five more sauces composed by adding ingredients. Dating from the 17th century, the basis of this sauce consists of the hot mixture of flour with butter known to us as rântaş or roux, a term used widely. So I melted the butter in a saucepan and then added the flour. In a few seconds the flour made a common front with the butter, a good time to add the milk. Gradually, little by little, stirring constantly so as not to form lumps. At the end I added nutmeg, salt and pepper. About 12 minutes on low heat are enough for the flour to cook and have a fine and fragrant sauce:
Inside the spinach nest I broke an egg:
Over the egg I added the hot bechamel sauce and put them in the oven heated to 180 degrees for about 10 minutes:
I put a pinch of salt in a mortar and crushed them. I added leurda and pine seeds that I previously heated in a pan to intensify their flavor. I crushed all the ingredients as long as I could, added the grated Parmesan cheese and thinner with olive oil:
When the egg is cooked, it is ideal for the yolk to remain sticky, it is ready to be served. But not before sprinkling it with a few teaspoons of leurd pesto. Hello finesse!
Recipes for lunch and dinner, casserole or pan, with rice
3. Chicken panPaella with chicken is a more handy version, when we do not have shellfish available
Paella is a traditional dish in Spain, Valencia, exported almost everywhere. There are versions only with fish or others that combine several types of meat or meat with fish. De facto, each family or restaurant has its own recipe.
It is a unique pan type food, and the basis of any paella is rice. In addition to chicken & # 8211 in our case, many vegetables are included in the composition. A Sunday lunch or just as well dinner or packed lunch. Comfortable to eat, completely nutritional.
- 350 g long grain rice, or generally with as little starch as possible, the grains must not stick together
- 1 chicken cut relatively small pieces (the part with many bones is used for something else) & # 8211 can be used only certain parts, according to preference, only thighs or wings or chest, about 400 g boneless meat)
- 100 g green beans
- 100 g frozen or raw peas
- ½ kg of well-ripened tomatoes, peeled
- 1 pepper
- 1 l of water
- saffron - an ingredient that can not be missing, gives it its characteristic color
- salt, pepper, sweet pepper
- oil, preferably olive oil
* Fry in a large frying pan with oil the chicken cut into pieces together with it, the green beans cut 2-3 cm, the peas and peppers cut similar to the beans. Add salt and pepper and keep everything over medium heat, stirring constantly for about 15 minutes.
* Meanwhile, peel the tomatoes and cut into small cubes, add along with the paprika. Let them simmer together for a few minutes. Add the water in which I dissolved the saffron. Stir gently and simmer for about 20 minutes.
An important condition
* The step that does not admit mistakes is the one in which we add the rice: it is added in the cross in the middle of the pan and it is left to simmer for about 20 minutes without the lid. Necessarily, without stirring, so that the rice does not release much starch. The amount of water depends a lot on the type of rice, possibly we add a little more. Cover with a lid after extinguishing the flame for a few minutes.
* Before serving, mix the rice with the rest of the ingredients with light movements, scraping lightly on the bottom of the pan - one of the characteristics of the paella is that the rice browns slightly underneath.

Preparation time 10 minutes
Cooking time 10 minutes
- 400-500 g vegetables (potatoes, carrots, peas, green beans, asparagus, broccoli, etc.)
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
Ingredients for Bechamel milk sauce
- 50 g butter
- 1 tablespoon flour
- 250 ml of hot milk
- salt, pepper, nutmeg
PREPARATION vegetables with Bechamel milk sauce
1. If the vegetables are not frozen and ready to be cooked, then clean, wash, slice or unwrap the bouquets (cauliflower and broccoli).
2. Boil the vegetables for 10 minutes, putting them in boiling water (about 1.5 liters) with 1/2 teaspoon of salt. Strain them and place them in portions on plates, or on a plate on a festive day, next to the sauce dish that the guests will use or you will serve yourself, who are the host.
3. Next you have two options. As I described in step 3, or put the vegetables together with the sauce in the oven and bake them together for 15-20 minutes, in which case you make the sauce from 300 ml of milk. The milk sauce should have the consistency of sour cream at the end.
PREPARATION of Bechamel sauce
1. Melt the butter over low heat in a saucepan.
2. Add the flour and mix well until you get a cream, then leave it on the fire for another 1 minute, to fry the flour, but always mix.
3. Pull the pot off the stove and start to incorporate the warm milk little by little at the beginning. If the milk is too hot, it is not a problem just that it thickens quickly and must be put less and quickly homogenized with the aim.
4. If the milk is not very hot, the operation of incorporating the milk from the beginning is done by pouring little by little. If the pot has stability, work with two hands, pouring slowly… like mayonnaise.
5. At the same time, turn the sauce over. Continue like this: pour a little milk, stir in the milk, and mix until the milk runs out (work with both hands, pour the milk with one hand and handle the milk with the other). When you have put all the milk and it is a bit boiled, if the sauce has a thicker consistency than you want, you can add a little more milk. Let the sauce boil for another 1 minute, stirring constantly.
6. Season with salt and pepper and possibly a little nutmeg.
It is a quick and tasty food, enriched by the white sauce.

Vegan lasagna with soy sauce and bechamel sauce with spinach

I have to tell you that I tried a lot of recipes, but the one I present to you today seems to me a formidable alternative to the classic recipe, at least as tasty and consistent. Therefore, we will cook together vegan lasagna with soy sauce and bechamel sauce with spinach.
What we need:
& # 8211 tomato paste or red cubes
How is it prepared:
We clean the onion and temper it a little until it becomes translucent.
We put the carrots on the grater and add them to the pan over the onion.
Saute the carrots and onions a little, then add the tomatoes and wine.
Mix well, add the soybeans and let it boil until the sauce decreases.
At the end, season with salt, pepper and add the garlic.
For the bechamel sauce, melt the coconut oil, add the flour and mix well with a whisk until thickened, then add the milk while stirring constantly.
After adding all the milk, season with salt, pepper, nutmeg and inactive yeast. Stir until the sauce begins to thicken.
When the bechamel sauce is ready, take it off the heat and add the spinach, then set it aside.
Grease a pan and put a polish of each sauce on the bottom. Add the first layer of leaves, then add another layer of each sauce.
We continue like this until we have a little sauce left that we will put on the surface (I used three layers of sheets).
After the last layer of leaves, add a little red sauce and more bechamel.
Put the pan in the oven for 60 minutes at 180 gr c.
In the first 40 minutes we will keep the tray covered with an aluminum foil, then we will take it out and leave it in the oven for another 20 minutes.
