Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Burrata, broccoli, lentils

    • Jane on August 27, 2019

      A pleasant vegetarian supper. Nothing spectacular but quick and easy to prep and felt healthy without being too virtuous.

  • Halloumi, tomatoes

    • Apollonia on August 08, 2021

      Simple, delicious. I usually like my halloumi crispy, but the softer, meltier effect here was lovely. We ended up with a lot of herby, tomato-y broth, so I served (as I do most things) over greens. It would only have been improved with a slice of thick sourdough.

  • Gnocchi, tomato, radishes

    • lilham on May 31, 2020

      Pan frying the gnocchi makes them crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside. Absolutely delicious. Everyone commented how much nicer they are compared to boiled gnocchi. I added salt when it’s not asked for in the recipe but otherwise followed it closely. I served it with the aubergine moussaka from Nigella Lawson’s Eat, which is a chickpea and aubergine stew with crumbled feta.

  • Marrow, tomato, couscous

    • lilham on July 11, 2020

      I followed the recipe loosely, using only one courgette, doubling the couscous and omitting the herbs. A lovely couscous to serve on the side. I would never have thought of using cooked tomatoes and courgette with couscous. I normally add things like raw tomatoes, salad leaves, nuts and dried fruit only.

  • Baked peppers, beans, herb sauce

    • saladdays on September 06, 2020

      A very tasty light meal. I microwaved the peppers enough to soften them before putting them in the oven, otherwise it seems a long cooking time for just 2 peppers. The sauce is very quick to make in a food processor and there was enough left to use as a salad dressing for another time.

    • FJT on July 21, 2021

      Nice supper dish. Due to the heat I cooked the peppers early in the morning so that I only had the oven on for a short time in the evening. The herb sauce really makes this dish.

  • Aubergine, puff pastry

    • FJT on May 27, 2021

      This was very good indeed. I also added feta cheese and highly recommend it and I upped the amount of pine nuts for the top too. My husband, whose usual comment about vegetarian dishes is that they would be improved by the addition of bacon, said he loved it and I could make it again any time!

    • fazzle on March 27, 2020

      Added some salty feta as well and it was delicious!

  • Sweet potatoes, tomatoes

    • FJT on August 18, 2021

      This was just ok. It was very difficult to form the mash into patties and I had to add way more flour than suggested. My patties barely held together. The tomato sauce was fine, but Marcella's tomato and onion sauce would have been better. Probably wouldn't repeat.

  • Fennel, onions, eggs

    • FJT on July 19, 2021

      Oh dear, where to start with this one? My husband summed it up as "it's a plate of vegetables with egg" and that's about it. The flavour of the mustard seeds didn't really come through. It was difficult to cook the wedges of fennel through even though I cut them down from the quarters stated in the recipe (so they were a bit too crunchy) ... and then it was tricky to fit everything in my largest frying pan. It wasn't really terrible, but it isn't a plate of food I would serve again.

  • Courgette, za'atar, herb yoghurt

    • joneshayley on March 23, 2020

      Easy and delicious , though needs plenty of seasoning and the chilli suggestion is good

  • Aubergine, honey, sheep's cheese

    • joneshayley on July 24, 2019

      Salty cheese, sweet honey, melting aubergine and thyme. Delicious and full of the feel of summer. A light supper for heady heated evenings, a lunch to eat outdoors in the shade of a tree, a summer breeze flowing by. Yum

    • etcjm on November 24, 2019

      Easy, tasty, definitely one to do again. i stupidly used the pan which was correct size wise but I just couldn't get enough heat into it, meaning it took longer to cook than expected. Very annoying since every other component of the meal was ready and people were waiting at the table! Out of everything served this is what got most comments.

    • Ganga108 on July 31, 2021

      Absolutely delicious. Slices of eggplant, 1cm, salted lightly, coated in seasoned flour, shallow fried. I served with salted ricotta and drizzled with the honey. Small serves - a great lunch perhaps, or nibbles before dinner, or an afternoon snack.

  • Orzo, peppers

  • Green falafel, watermelon, yoghurt

    • lou_weez on February 14, 2022

      A light and delicious meal. I prepared the falafel the day before, so all I had to do when I got home from work was pop them in the oven for 20 minutes and make the salad. I will be making these again.

  • Broad beans, couscous, pine kernels

    • mjes on August 15, 2021

      As is typical of Greenfeast, the recipes are straight forward with uncommon (or at least unhackneyed) ingredients. Good enough to be considered any time I have the ingredients; not so brilliant I'd shop especially for it.

  • Halloumi, mint, aubergine

    • JJ2018 on February 22, 2020

      I was really excited about this but for me it just was lacking something. The breaded halloumi was nice, the aubergine was garlicky I just think it was missing freshness and more of a kick. Maybe more lemon and some chilli if there’s a next time ... probably not as it stands

  • Mustard guacamole, mozzarella, bagel

    • JJ2018 on February 22, 2020

      A different take with the avocado. I enjoyed this and it was quick and easy but i doubt it is special enough to have frequently

  • Broad beans, spring greens, lasagne

    • Ganga108 on January 11, 2022

      Disappointing. A lot of effort and not a good dish. Ok, but disappointing. Could be improved with slices of almost cooked potato.

  • Tomatoes, basil, breadcrumbs

    • Ganga108 on January 11, 2022

      A lovely, Summery, herby dish.

  • Chickpea, pea, sprouted seeds

    • Ganga108 on July 31, 2021

      Made a riff on this dish. Used Black Beans instead of chickpeas, broad beans instead of peas (from the freezeer), tiny mung sprouts and pea sprouts. Loved the creamy dressing. Nice. Not spectacular like Ottolenghi, but that is not what Nigel Slater goes for. Good, easy, weekday home cooking. Typical Nige! ??

  • Strawberries, oats, yoghurt

    • Ganga108 on January 10, 2022

      Bircher Muesli, apple, orange juice and berries with yoghurt. Really nice, the amount I made was enough for 3 days of large bowls. I added passionfruit too.
