Notes about this book

  • Cati on November 27, 2013

    If you just want to extract one recipe from meal suggestion it is not sraightforward to do so, as the instructions are intermingled with instructions for the rest of the meal. Still wortwhile doing for some of his ideas for vegetable accompaniments such as Jiggy Jiggy Greens and green couscous. Probably wouldn't have bought if I hadn't seen the TV tie in.

Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Spicy Cajun chicken, smashed sweet potato & fresh corn salsa

    • mondraussie on May 22, 2013

      Perfect combination of flavours

  • Sizzling chicken fajitas, grilled peppers, salsa, rice & beans

    • laura75 on July 08, 2013

      Yum! Yum! Yum! Absolutely wonderful dish. I made the salsa without coriander, so it was probably more liquidy.. but still very tasty. Loved the rice/bean mix.

  • Gorgeous Greek chicken, herby vegetable couscous & tzatziki

    • TrishaCP on June 14, 2014

      Fine for a weeknight meal but nothing special and I probably wouldn't repeat it. I agree that the couscous alone is bland.

    • Hellyloves2cook on November 22, 2012

      For a start this took me longer to make than 15 mins- the family enjoyed it but I found the couscous a little bland- despite having an assortment of nice things added to it-however it was extremely colourful.

  • Thai chicken laksa, mildly spiced noodle squash broth

    • sarahcooks on September 17, 2013

      I really loved this! It took about 20-25 minutes to make (after getting everything that I needed laid out). My big American chicken thighs were probably twice the size of Jamie's so they took a bit longer to cook. Great SE Asian flavor super fast!

  • Spiced chicken, bacon, asparagus & spinach lentils

    • valtaylor on April 29, 2014

      Saturday April 26, 2014 Made using lamb sirloin and ordinary canned lentils as couldn't get puy - it was really good. We are in the middle of kitchen renos and so I had to cook on a two-ring camping stove!!

  • Chilli con carne meatballs

    • TrishaCP on June 21, 2014

      Something about this recipe didn't quite come together for me- I think the flavors of the sauce just didn't have enough time to meld in the cooking time allotted. The smoked paprika flavor to me was also too strong- though it was better with the lemony bulgur (the best part of the meal.)

  • British burgers, shred salad, pickles & things

    • TrishaCP on August 06, 2014

      The burgers were really delicious. They were only flavored with a swig of ale and a teaspoon of whole grain mustard (for me, Creole mustard), but they packed so much flavor. I didn't see any instructions to season with salt and pepper, but obviously I did. As for the sauce (blandly sour) and the salad (too sweet), I didn't care for either. I would make the burgers again, but just sub my own seasonal side salad.

    • laura75 on July 08, 2013

      Super good! These burgers are so quick to make. I preferred white wine vinegar in the salad dressing instead of red wine vinegar.

  • Pork steaks, Hungarian pepper sauce & rice

    • SugarFree_Vegan on December 14, 2013

      Pg 94. The Hungarian Pepper Sauce is really lovely, I made mine in advance and reheated it later and it was still vibrant and peppers not overcooked. As I'm a veggie I used a Portobello Mushroom in place of the Pork (my Husband had the pork though!).

  • Lamb meatballs, chop salad & harissa yoghurt

    • mbremner on November 22, 2013

      Pita bread or Turkish bread would be equally good with this recipe.

    • aargle on January 08, 2013

      Delicious. Surprisingly very filling

  • Glazed sizzling chops, sweet tomato & asparagus lasagnetti

    • KIGirl on September 02, 2014

      Have only tried lasagnetti 7/10

  • Mustard lamb, Irish mash & watercress apple salad

    • KIGirl on September 02, 2014

      6/10 rating for mash only

  • Turkish flats, shred salad, feta & herbs

    • laura75 on July 08, 2013

      Nice flavour! A lot less to eat than in most of the other recipes in the book.

  • Green tea salmon, coconut rice & miso greens

    • laura75 on July 08, 2013

      Cooked this for my husband who thought it is one of the best meals he has ever eaten! Salmon was easy to cook even for a first timer like me and I did make the salmon skin crisps as well. Left out coriander.

  • White fish tagine, carrot, coriander & clementine salad

  • Lucky squid 'n' prawns, spicy vegetable noodle broth

    • jammydodger on September 13, 2014

      This is a winner. I cheated and used lazy lemongrass and ginger, and swapped out the squid for salmon chunks, which I added straight to the broth at the same time as the noddles. The broth itself is so easy and quick, packed in plenty of flavour and I loved the way Jamie has you slice the veg in the food processor. This is one I will make over and over again.

  • Koh Samui salad, chilli tofu & Thai noodles

    • aargle on November 28, 2013

      Very tasty. Felt that more prawns were needed than recipe stated, I used 500g.the slicing blade on my food processor worked perfectly as per instructions. It's a great dish for a really hot day.

  • Butterflied sardines, Tuscan bread salad

    • Jebesky on January 11, 2013

      The bread goes rather soggy adding it first after the liquid. If you'd prefer it crunchier, add it last.

  • Chorizo & squid, Greek-style couscous salad

    • Vitto on March 30, 2014

      Pasiruosiame kuskus'a su buljonu ir prieskoniais, kokio skonio pageidaujam. Pakepti deshrike, tada babe svogunus ir paprikas sudeti kepti. Paprika ir svogunai turi buti trashkus, todel neperkepti. Viska kepam ant olyvuogiu :) aliejaus! Ipilam shlakeli vyno acto. Sudedame supjaustyta juostelemis kalmara. Kepam dar apie 5-6 min. Pabaigoje kepimo idedam 6-8 alyvuoges suspausdami jas tarp pirshtu. Likus kepti minutei, idedame 2 saukstus medaus. Tikriausia nereikia sakyti, kad kepant viska reikia maishyti. Visa shita reikala supilame ant kuskus'o su visu padazhiuku, kuris gavosi kepant! Ant virshaus patrupiname fetos arba brinzos surio pagal skoni. Ant salotu ishspaudzhiame citrinikes sulchiu ir uzhmetame keleta shaukshtu naturalaus jogurto! :) Papuoshiame pagal nuotaika, bet desetkas vyshniniu supjaustytu pomidoriuku privaloma! Done! Bone apetito! :)

  • Pasta pesto, garlic & rosemary chicken

    • laura75 on July 08, 2013

      A delicious dish!!! I used peas instead of beans and would definitely add more tomatoes next time.

    • valtaylor on May 15, 2014

      Another tasty dish. Will make again.

    • TrishaCP on May 22, 2014

      Great and easy recipe for a weeknight. I already had my own pesto made, so just used that instead, which made the prep even faster. The chicken was very flavorful and very fast! I agree about adding more tomatoes.

  • Crab Bolognese, crunchy fennel salad

  • Sausage fusilli, creamy garden salad

    • laura75 on July 08, 2013

      note to self: do not use HOT english mustard for the salad dressing if making this again. LOL. I wasn't so keen on this pasta meal. I think I just don't like those jarred peppers nor rosemary. :(

  • Chorizo carbonara, Catalan market salad

    • laura75 on July 08, 2013

      Lovely meal! Chorizo just is so good. I really loved this salad, too, especially the nice cold clementine slices.

  • Winter squash penne, mint & avocado chopped salad

    • KIGirl on September 02, 2014

      Rating 7/10 for salad

  • Chicken pasta, herby 6-veg ragù

    • TrishaCP on September 12, 2014

      This was a good quick dinner that packed quite a few vegetables into a basic pasta dish and seems to be pretty flexible in terms of veg and herbs used. (I would think you could make several types of variations based on what is on hand and your preference.) The vegetables really cook down into the sauce. I subbed red pepper flakes for the chili since I didn't have one, used an orange bell pepper instead of jarred roasted peppers, and couldn't find the pine nuts so omitted them.

    • redbirdo on December 09, 2013

      I liked this and my kids loved it (NB I modified the recipe) which means I'll probably make it again as it's a good healthy family meal. I felt there were rather a lot of ingredients and I didn't have/use them all but rather modified the recipe to suit me. I didn't have any courgettes or bacon and used tinned tomatoes in place of passata. I also left out the basalmic vinegar, chillis and pine nuts to simplify and make it more child-friendly.

    • laura75 on July 08, 2013

      I like it that Jamie's pasta dishes are easy to make, but I didn't really like the flavour of this dish. I must say though that I don't really like anything too tomatoey.

  • Prawn linguine, Sicilian shaved fennel salad

    • debkellie on April 13, 2014

      An easy 15 minute dish. I was halving the recipe so subtituted a 250g jar of Mexican medium hot chilli salsa (which I blitzed to a sauce) in place of passata and chilli. The garlic crumbs add a nice textural crunch. The fennel/celery/mint salad was OK but nothing "special" - but it did clear out the veg drawer, which was a goal!

    • Astrid5555 on December 29, 2012

      Delicious!! Made with a simple green salad instead of the shaved fennel salad. Would have almost been possible to finish in 15 minutes, but I let the sauce simmer fo an additional 15 minutes to thicken it more before adding the prawns. Will make again.

  • Mexican tomato soup, chilli nachos, veggie & feta sprinkles

    • laura75 on July 08, 2013

      Another meal where all the different components make the most amazing tasting dish when put together. That spicy yoghurt sauce is amazing! and nachos are the perfect addition to this.

  • Squash soup, sagey chestnut dumplings

    • jammydodger on September 16, 2014

      I found the soup needed an extra stock cube to boost its flavour (although I did replace some of the carrots with frozen cauliflower as I only had one, so perhaps that was why). Together with the pancetta (I used streaky bacon), dumplings and crispy sage it made a lovely meal; add some bread alongside and I found it filling enough to have for dinner.

  • Sweet & sour veggies, Szechuan eggy rice & crunch salad

    • laura75 on July 08, 2013

      Jamie really does know how to make tasty food! I definitely don't often eat vegetarian food, but this was lovely. I especially like the salad with lots of mint.

  • Camembert parcels, autumn salad & cranberry dip

    • SugarFree_Vegan on January 29, 2013

      Page 236 in UK edition. This was a really beautiful dish, a great mix of sour, bitter, sweet, crunch, warm, cold, and healthy too - YUM!

  • Tasty daal curry, warm tomato salad & naan

    • laura75 on July 08, 2013

      What a tasty meal. Tomato salad is quite spicy, but when you have it together with the lentils, natural yoghurt and the naan... omg, so good!!!

  • Smoky maple pancetta, fluffy corn & chilli pancakes

    • laura75 on July 08, 2013

      Super delicious!!! My batter sat for a while and got thicker, so my pancakes were thicker, too. I only used half a chilli as I was nervous there would be too much heat, but I will definitely use a whole one next time. Left out coriander as I can't stand it.

  • Purple smoothies

    • laura75 on July 08, 2013

      I think my pears weren't ripe enough as it was a bit hard going getting everything blended and the smoothie was VERY thick. Had to add quite a bit more apple juice.

  • White smoothies

    • laura75 on July 08, 2013

      This was a lot more delicious than I had expected by just looking at the list of ingredients. Very quick and easy to make.
