Notes about Recipes in this book

  • 7-veg tomato sauce, packed with hidden goodness

    • mckittrickp on July 26, 2018

      My wife hates me for this but I call this one Colostomy Bag Pasta. Don't let that put you off though. Its excellent.

    • Hannaha100 on January 02, 2018

      I was really pleased with how this turned out. DD has been fussy again last few weeks so fingers crossed. (Good way to sneak courgettes into DH too). Allow at least 2 hours - took ages to simmer. I got 2900ml in total, slightly less than stated. Could have used guidance on portion sizes, in the end used pasta recipe earlier in the book to judge 1 portion as 150ml. Also had no idea you could eat squash skin like this.

  • Italian superfood burgers, balsamic onions, mozzarella & slaw

    • joneshayley on February 05, 2018

      The slaw is good, well dressed and tasty. Balsamic onions are also delicious. However the burgers are a let down. Whole beans? Why? They end up loose and dry within the burgers- mash the beans before adding the meat, which will result in a better texture, and taste. I won’t make these again- there are far better burger recipes.

  • Smoky veggie chilli, sweet gem & cheesy jacket spuds

    • EdinburghCook on August 30, 2017

      Griddling the beans as per the recipe I don't think adds any value and just makes a mess of the pan. I think it would taste as good without griddling the veg as well.

    • Boffcat on March 11, 2017

      Quite good, but not special enough to warrant the fairly time-consuming preparation (griddling all the vegetables in batches takes a long time, even if you cheat a bit like I did and just fry the chopped onions). And griddling the beans just made an unholy mess of my pan! I had hoped the peanut butter would add an intriguing depth of flavour, but I can't say I could tell it was there.

  • Sag aloo korma, sweet potatoes, chard & chickpeas

    • EdinburghCook on August 30, 2017

      Watch the potatoes....I'd recommend 10 mins as mine went way to far at 15 as per the recipe

  • Japanese miso stew, tofu, seaweed, greens & chilli oil

    • Hannaha100 on June 19, 2017

      I'm afraid this wasn't for us. Husband declared it "full of slimy things" and I just found it a bit bland. A bit better with some more miso and soy sauce. I have had better miso than this. No idea what the secret is, we'll have to look at some other recipes.

  • Pasta pesto, green beans, broccoli & asparagus

    • Hannaha100 on June 19, 2017

      This was a good twist on a bit of a classic - pasta with green veg and pesto. I enjoyed the variety of the veg but could not fit the full amount into one saucepan - had to separate out. If I did full amount again, I might steam some of the veg. Lighter touch on cooking water too, a "mugful" wasn't necessary.

  • Veggie fried rice, sesame, tofu & chilli eggs

    • Hannaha100 on June 20, 2017

      This was nice but not amazing and I found the instructions a little confusing. I definitely don't have a frying pan that's big enough for all those ingredients. Next time use the big wok for mushrooms, rice etc. The tofu and eggs are cooked separately which wasn't clear to me at first. Also my mushrooms were too juicy to "char" as described. Husband thought rice was OK but hated the mushrooms. Neither of us are big fans of silken tofu. Could substitute but might just try something new. Portion sizes generous.

  • Jamie's Italian super-food salad, grains, grilled avo, broccoli & harissa

    • Hannaha100 on June 23, 2017

      This book and I just don't seem to be getting on. This is a nice salad and made a really substantial lunch that worked well for work. However, although I'm a fan of all the components it seemed a bit overkill somehow - more isn't always more. I feel as though this could be broken down into about 3 really nice salads? Will have a think. OK next time I would cut down using this formula grain (rice/quinoa) +pulse (lentils/chickpeas) + green veg (kale/Broccoli) +root veg (fennel/beetroot) + fat (avocado/cottage cheese) + herb (parsley/mint) +topping (seeds/harissa). I still think this might be too many ingredients.

  • Super greens cannelloni, creamy ricotta & basil sauce

    • Hannaha100 on June 27, 2017

      Husband made this one. It was tasty (liked the hint of lemon) but took too long to make to ever be that practical for us. Possibly one to pull out for dinner guests if plenty of time to prepare in the day.

  • Chicken lollipop dippers, pea & mint couscous, charred asparagus

    • embk27 on January 27, 2017

      Great family dinner - my 6 year old loved it and he's a very fussy eater. Dipping the chicken in the sauce and then almonds added to the fun. I did a Harissa yogurt sauce for grown ups too which worked well. I think corn on the cob might work better than asparagus.

  • Peruvian sweet potato soup, corn, peppers, chicken & quinoa

    • raybun on January 30, 2017

      This was a very tasty, filling soup. I used leftover roast chicken meat rather than thighs but otherwise stuck to the recipe. Lots left for midweek lunches too.

  • Chocolate porridge, Greek yogurt & fresh seasonal fruit

    • lou_weez on April 19, 2018

      A nice breakfast, that feels a little naughty. As I'm not a fan of chocolate/orange combination I omitted the orange zest and added cinnamon instead. I also didn't have coconut water so used full cream milk and water.

    • Boffcat on March 12, 2017

      This is good, and pleasingly effortless to make up once you've done the initial prep. (I didn't have quite enough hazelnuts so made up the difference with almonds.) To my slight surprise, despite the dates it wasn't that sweet; if anything it had a slight savoury note, possibly due to the coconut water. I probably wouldn't buy coconut water specially for this in future, but would make it up with diluted cow's milk or nut milk instead - or possibly even some of the juice from the orange whose zest you use for the dry mix.

  • Persian veggie pilaf, saffron, blueberries & borlotti beans

    • lou_weez on August 11, 2017

      This was nothing special. It ticked the meat-free Monday box, but that was it.
