Notes about Recipes in this book

  • White bean and cabbage soup

    • averythingcooks on March 09, 2019

      I was looking for a way to help use up a bag of coleslaw mix and this fit the bill. Full disclosure (at the risk of wrath from the thug kitchen crew!) - I did add some leek & fennel sausage meat and used a meat based broth from the freezer. The combination of my own additions with the leeks, garlic, rosemary, fire roasted tomatoes, white beans and of course cabbage was really delicious. Some diced red & yellow peppers, a fresh red chili and a Parmesan rind also went in. This will be a definite weekend repeat which can be improvised based on what is hanging around the crisper.

  • Sun-dried tomato carbonara

    • Hannaha100 on June 28, 2017

      The whole family liked this! "The holy grail" as my husband said. Can prepare toppings while pasta boils. Not brilliant nutritionally, might want to serve with salad or extra veg.

  • Skillet beer chili mac

    • toddmain on February 24, 2018

      We found that the flavors just didn't go well with pasta

  • One-pot chickpea biryani

    • toddmain on February 24, 2018

      Be very careful not to overcook the rice and turn it into paste

    • Hannaha100 on July 01, 2017

      The last time I made a biryani from scratch, about 10 years ago, it was an unmitigated disaster and resulted in a pan being thrown away. This was much better! Rice only took 15 minutes. Left out nuts due to allergies. Used normal raisins. Would cut onion up smaller next time. Toddler ate it and asked for more!!!

  • Pasta piselli

    • Hannaha100 on November 14, 2018

      This one was just a bit bland, not worth repeating except in dire straits.

  • Coconut-lime rice

    • ywgttw on March 16, 2019

      Absolutely LOVE this rice, I make it really often. It works beautifully with white basmati too. I often cook the white basmati version in the Instant Pot with 3 cups broth to 2 rice for 8 minutes at HP, with a few minutes natural release and then release the pressure. Lovely!

  • Borracho squash and bean burritos

    • Hannaha100 on June 24, 2017

      Borracho squash and bean burritos a total miss. Threw the leftovers away.

  • Red curry noodles

    • Hannaha100 on June 27, 2017

      Recipe time doesn't include time to press & cook tofu or cook noodles. Make sure you read the recipe properly and put the water for the noodles on first. This recipe was just OK. As written, I felt there was too much broth (too watery) and not enough flavour (up the curry paste, add additional herbs). With the changes I'm pretty sure it would be a good fast weeknight meal.

  • Polenta puttanesca

    • Hannaha100 on June 24, 2017

      Yes! Dinner on the table in minutes with quick-cook polenta. Fusspot toddler actually said "yum"! If only my husband liked polenta too...

  • Brown sugar blueberry polenta scones

    • Hannaha100 on June 29, 2017

      These were easy enough to mix but the mixture was very wet and difficult to handle. Fine if you don't mind an irregular "rustic" look - I've no idea how they came out so neat in the book. Made with unsweetened soy milk rather than almond milk. A nice texture, with that little bit of grit from polenta. However, these are not as sweet as the scones I'm used to. A little underwhelming on their own but good with butter or syrup. Didn't keep well, best eaten on day.

  • Tahini fudge

    • Mrlew1 on November 18, 2017

      Delicious, but I tried twice and couldn't get it to set either time...

  • Panko pasta topping

    • Hannaha100 on June 28, 2017

      A very quick and easy way to add a bit of interest to pasta without cheese. Used onion granules instead of garlic.
