Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Red coconut curry potsu

    • Hannaha100 on June 06, 2017

      This tasted nice but was too much of a pain to repeat. (my own fault) had switched chicken for frozen quorn pieces but hadn't realised the chicken was supposed to be roasted. Ended up microwaving but hadn't prepare the sauce. If I did again, would probably simmer so I didn't have to do in batches. Made a mild version for my daughter with coconut milk, soy sauce and agave (but no ginger or curry sauce). She wouldn't eat it but I thought it was nice.

  • Chicken katsu

    • sarahj22 on July 07, 2017

      I was a bit sceptical about the authors labelling this katsu when the chicken isn't breaded, but this still hits the spot flavourwise. A lovely alternative to a traditional katsu if you want something quicker and lighter.

  • Thai green chicken & squash soup

    • sarahj22 on October 10, 2017

      This was okay but I felt it lacked depth of flavour, even after adding a little extra curry paste at the start. I wasn't confident that the final addition of lime and coriander would fix it so I also added some other aromatics once the chicken was cooked (some chopped fresh ginger, chopped red chillies, fish sauce, half a chicken stock cube and a dash of coconut milk). It ended up being tasty but I'm sure that was only due to the addition of the extras, as prior to that it was fairly bland. I don't think I'd repeat this one. James Martin has quite a similar one for Thai sweet potato and chicken soup which is much more flavourful, so I'll stick to that one in future.

  • Walnut miso

    • VineTomato on July 03, 2017

      I will be making this one again! Lovely, mellow, sweet and substantial miso broth. The recipe instructions are a bit light, as it does not specify how long to cook the broth for - before or after adding the walnut miso. After adding the walnut miso, I added the udon and cooked for about 10 minutes. Just before serving I added some sliced mangetouts. Served with boiled egg and pan fried teriyaki tofu. Lovely filling dinner.

  • Red coconut curry sauce

    • Hannaha100 on June 06, 2017

      Tasty sauce, not too difficult to put together. Subbed tamari for fish sauce. I used just 2 tbsp curry paste based on package instructions and this was a nice level of spice. I suspect 4 would have been quite hot.
