Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Potato & mushroom al forno

    • Astrid5555 on October 31, 2019

      I don‘t like it when the picture of the dish clearly differs from the recipe instructions. Jamie has you place everything on a large roasting tray while the final picture shows the veggies in a cast iron pan, which makes much more sense anyway, given that you need to top the potatoes/mushrooms with a liquid egg mixture. So I did the roasting step on a baking tray (no way this can be done in the cast iron skillet, would be way too cramped for the potatoes and mushrooms to roast properly) and then transferred everything to my cast iron skillet before adding the egg mixture and it worked perfectly. Nothing special, but with a small green salad as a side, a nice vegetarian meal for a foggy fall night.

  • My cauliflower tikka masala

    • etcjm on October 15, 2019

      Not convinced really. I used chickpeas instead of paneer and added some spinach as well. Seemed to use an awful lot of pots for blending etc. Surprisingly no chillies which was odd for a Jamie recipe. It was enjoyed but don't think I'll do it again. Leftovers might be nice blended to a soup.

  • Sticky onion tart

    • etcjm on November 07, 2019

      Very good. Do again. Few points; I think I caramelised too far so very little sauce when tipped out. I also used gluten free pastry which should have been cooked on a lower heat really. I got concerned at 25 mins out of the 35. Next time lower heat. All in all, lovely. You must use the herbs they really add flavour. And the goat's cheese! If I hadn't picked up the pan just after it came out of the oven I'm sure I would have enjoyed it more. Ouch, rookie error..

  • Crispy-bottomed steamed dumplings

    • MilduraSO on May 16, 2020

      This works surprisingly well as a mid-week meal. I throw the butternut squash in the oven as soon as I get home then get on with other jobs. It comes together pretty quickly after that. I was a bit scared of using miso as I hadn't tried it before but it wasn't overpowering. I usually pair this with the bhaji burgers in the same meal plan to use up the leftover squash during the week.

  • My veggie pasties

    • MilduraSO on May 16, 2020

      I'm giving this 5 stars just for the pastry recipe which is so simple and tastes perfect. I'm not a fan of mushrooms (I'm working on it) but cook up some cubed root vegetables with plenty of seasoning as an alternative. Any leftover pastry keeps in the fridge for a few days and can be used for cheese straws.

  • Stuffed curried aubergines

    • MilduraSO on May 16, 2020

      This is my favourite recipe in the entire book and the best curry I have ever made at home. It is so different from any curry I've ever tasted. I've made it by stuffing the aubergines a few times but I've also skipped the stuffing step and just mixed everything together for the base sauce with random vegetables I have to hand. Either way, it tastes delicious.

  • Allotment cottage pie

    • MilduraSO on May 16, 2020

      This was absolutely delicious. I’ve always hated mushrooms but decided to risk it and use the dried porcinis in the sauce since they were blended- it was a game changer. The depth of flavour was amazing. I’d skip the crispy rosemary next time if I don’t have any fresh. It was nice but not essential.

  • Masala stuffed peppers

    • MilduraSO on May 16, 2020

      This is a lovely summer dish for bbq season. They take a while to cook but most of the time they're in the oven so it's quite hands-off. I serve them with grilled/bbq'd tikka paneer, spicy mango chutney and mint raita. I'm not a huge fan of the grated paneer on top so often skip that part.

  • Pumpkin rice

    • MilduraSO on May 16, 2020

      I was pretty disappointed by this dish. It was all spicy heat with very little flavour behind it. It wasn't terrible and I did finish it but I won't make it again.

  • Sweet leek carbonara

    • MilduraSO on May 16, 2020

      I had never made carbonara before and worried that the end wouldn't cook properly. I've made it a few times now and it's always been successful. It was really nice but I suspect someone who has eaten real carbonara might miss the pancetta (even before I was vegetarian I never liked pork, so it's no loss to me). It works well as a quick mid-week pasta meal but if you're really pressed for time, I'd recommend the silky courgette bow tie pasta which is much faster.

  • Silky courgette bow-ties

    • MilduraSO on May 16, 2020

      This recipe surprised me. It was ready in 15 minutes and tasted fresh and delicious. Don’t miss out the fennel seeds, they make a big difference. It’s going to be on my mid-week menu regularly through spring and summer.

  • Indian-style chip butty

    • MilduraSO on May 16, 2020

      It takes a while for the potatoes to cook but all of the other elements are quick to put together. It's surprisingly simple but looks and tastes like you've put hours of work into it. I've never bothered with the pomegranate as my husband isn't a fan and it seems a waste to buy pomegranate for one.

  • Brilliant bhaji burger

    • MilduraSO on May 16, 2020

      The first time I tried this I made the bhaji too thick and it was a little undercooked in the middle. I now make them about 1.5-2cm thick which is perfect. The scraggly bits around the edge really are the best part so I deliberately make them messy around the edges for delicious crispy bits.

  • Summer bubble & squeak

    • MilduraSO on May 16, 2020

      This was a nice way to use up lots of leftover vegetables. My only criticism is that the mix seems quite dry and I ended up using quite a bit of butter to bind it together. I'll need to put some effort into making it work without adding several hundred extra calories!

  • Proper baked beans

    • MilduraSO on May 16, 2020

      This was far from a disaster but the end result was just a nice, inoffensive dish. There were a lot of ingredients which made it quite expensive. I'll stick to jazzing up a tin of baked beans instead - much cheaper, faster and about as effective.
