Tvarohové gule s jahodami. Sweet dumplings with strawberries.

 

 

This is THE meal, that brings me back to my childhood. The smell of freshly picked strawberries from my grandma´s garden, that are hidden underneath a pieces of soft, pillow-like dough like the most precious treasurure , covered by many tiny pieces of lovely minced cheese, drizzled with melted butter and sprinkled with powdered sugar. Ah. That´s one the most tastiest childhood memories..
Who wouldn´t love this, right?! Of course I have experimented with the recipe to bring it on to a plate into a healthier version without refined flour and sugar but the taste of this amazing meal is still the same, it is still as delicious and magical as I remember.
No matter if you put a plate of these sweet dumplings in front of a little kid, or a growing adolescent or in front of the oldest member of your family-everyone will fall for these.

Sweet dumplings with strawberries
(makes around 15 dumplings, enough for 3 people)

250g minced cheese (tvaroh), or minced and drained cottage cheese plus more for serving
100g spelt flour (I used 50g light spelt and 50g wholemeal spelt flour)
pinch of salt
around 20 fresh strawberries, washed and hulled
4 tbs proper butter, melted
honey, to taste

In a medium size bowl, mix together the cheese, flour and salt. Knead it all into a soft and moist dough. Roll into a log. Cut a piece of dough, spread it into a circle using palms of your hands, put a strwaberry in the middle and cover the fruit with the dough all over its surface. Make sure there are no cracks in the dough, otherwise, the lovely strawberry juices might get out into the water. Roll the ball between your hands until smooth, handling the ball very gently. Repeat with the remaining dough.
Bring a pan of water into a boil and cook the dumplings until they float on top-about 4 minutes. Drain, divide them into serving plates/bowls, sprinkle with some cheese, drizzle with melted butter and some honey. Serve with more strawberries if desired. Enjoy!

Toto je presne TO jedlo, ktore mi vzdy pripomenie krasu detstva. Ta vona cerstvych jahod, prave odtrhnutych zo zahradky mojej starkej, ktore sa ukryvaju pod jemnuckym testom ako tie najvzacnejsie poklady, posypane malickymi kuskami jemneho tvarohu, poliate teplym rozpustenym maslom a posypane praskovym cukrom. Ah.. To je jedna z tych najchutnejsich spomienok z mojho detstva..
Kto by taketo uzasne jedlo nezboznoval, vsak?! Je pravdou, ze som s tymto receptom experimentovala, aby som ho zbavila rafinovanej muky a cukru ale aby som ho nikdy nezbavila tej uzasnej chuti, ktora zostala presne taka ako si pamatam – uzasna a magicka.
Nezalezi na tom ci date tieto tvarohove gule s jahodami pred dieta, dospievajuceho cloveka alebo pred toho najstarsieho clena rodiny-kazdy si ich zamiluje.

Tvarohové gule s jahodami
(na pripravu okolo 15 guliek, ktore by mali vystacit pre 3 osoby)

250g jemneho tvarohu, plus trochu viac na podavanie
100g spaldovej muky (pouzila som 50g hladkej a 50g celozrnnej spaldovej)
stipka soli
okolo 20 cerstvych jahod, umytych a odstopkovanych
4 lyzice poctiveho masla,rozpusteneho
med na osladenie

Zmiesame si spolu tvaroh, muku a sol. Vypracujeme si jemne cesto, ktora vytvarujeme do dlhsej rolky. Odkrojime si kusok cesta, pomoc dlani z cesta vytvarujeme okruhlu placku a do stredu si polzime jahodku. Jahodku do cesta pekne zavrieme a dame si pozor aby v ceste neboli ziadne strbinky – tie uzasne jahodove stavy by nam vytiekli do vody a to naozaj nechceme. Takto si gulku vezmeme do ruk a pomoc dlani ju vygulkame do peknej gulicky. Opakujeme so zvyskom cesta.
Vodu v panvici privedieme do varu a varime v nej gulicky az dokym nevyplavaju na povrch, zhruba 4 minuty. Gule ocedime, posypeme troskou jemneho tvarohu, polejeme rozpustenym maslom a troskou medu. Mozme podavat s viac cerstvymi jahodami. Mnam!
