Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Rich and creamy celeriac gratin

    • RosieB on June 16, 2013

      This is a great way to cook celeriac. I used tinned jalapeño chillies and one red chilli. Really tasty and a change from potato gratin. Will definitely make again.

  • Strawberries with mascarpone and cream

    • Astrid5555 on June 20, 2014

      Delicious last minute dessert!

  • Plum crumble

    • jammydodger on July 24, 2014

      Not bad, although it was really a bit sharp for a pudding (might work better if you have sweeter plums). As a breakfast, though, with plenty of natural yoghurt, it works very well.

  • Chickpea curry

    • Melanie on February 29, 2012

      p193. Love this versatile chickpea curry which is very easy to put together after work. I substituted canned chickpeas for the dried chickpeas - I used 800g canned chickpeas (no soaking overnight) and halved the remaining ingredients. I also swapped raw sugar in for the maple syrup and just used ground spices that I had at hand (halving the fennel). One tip - add about a cup of water when you add the carrots otherwise everything will probbaly start to burn.

    • Alro9 on February 05, 2014

      I followed a note left by another person and added water to prevent the carrots sticking and burning. The flavour of the curry was good... I think I might have preferred another vegetable to carrots (in combination with chickpeas). I used whole bottled Spanish chickpeas which were delicious and avoided the prep the night before.

  • Pasta with broccoli, sun-dried tomatoes and olives

    • sharifah on May 19, 2020

      I usually make the broccoli/orecchiette combo using the Jamie Oliver recipe with anchovies in it, but since I've ran out of anchovies, thought I'd give this version a go. And it was surprisingly nice! I like the sun dried tomatoes, olives and pine nuts in it. Good flavours and texture. What I did add, was a sprinkle of dried chillies, otherwise I think it would've been a bit bland.

  • Sicilian cauliflower pasta

    • Suirauqa on November 24, 2013

      This is easy make and delicious for an everyday supper.

  • Good old fashioned macaroni cheese

    • Susan_F on April 09, 2014

      Delicious traditional mac and cheese. The family loved it and now want it every week! (If only they knew the calorie content). I mixed the parmesan with the breadcrumbs rather than adding it into the cheese sauce.

  • Green pea pilau

    • Susan_F on September 30, 2013

      Very tasty rice dish - great as a side or on it's own for lunch the next day!

  • Granola

    • Alro9 on February 05, 2014

      I used almonds and cashews for the nut component of this recipe and then dried sour cherries for the fruit. I keep the fruit separate and only add it when I'm eating the granola so I can change my mind about the combination. Delicious.

  • Potatoes with hazelnuts and rosemary

    • Alro9 on November 06, 2013

      The idea of cooked new potatoes with creme fraiche, hazelnuts and rosemary isn't a bad one (the flavour combinations are good) but this receipe was overly labour-intensive and would have worked better had it been written differently.

  • Rosted veg and miso dressing with sesame seeds

    • Alro9 on November 06, 2013

      Delicious and very easy to prepare. You could use any combination of vegetables but the dressing is very good.

  • Warm halloumi, apple and radish salad

    • joneshayley on May 24, 2019

      Made without the walnuts, and didn’t miss the extra crunch. A beautiful, refreshing salad, with a lovely basic dressing that complimented rather than overwhelmed.

  • Rösti with mushrooms

    • Hannaha100 on September 13, 2017

      A reasonably easy dish (with food processor doing grating). Would be good for a brunch. I pre-boiled potatoes to speed up. Soundly rejected by toddler.

  • Chickpea tagine with harissa

    • Hannaha100 on June 25, 2016

      Meal enjoyed by all, spices quite subtle. Don't be tempted to skip the harissa.

  • Roasted mushrooms, tomatoes and pine nuts

    • Hannaha100 on October 28, 2016

      I was looking for a simple straightforward way to cook Portobello mushrooms and this was just the thing. Served with spinach and avocado on toast for a healthy ish breakfast for dinner. Eggs would have been excellent too but had run out. Sadly couldn't persuade baby to eat the mushroom but I enjoyed it. Would make an easy brunch for next time guests stay over.

  • Spaghetti omelette

    • Hannaha100 on September 07, 2017

      This is one of those recipes I would never have thought of in a million years. Unusual and child friendly. Didn't bother to peel tomatoes. Made with dairy free marg and nooch for cheese. Could easily add different flavours. Olives would work well.

  • Crunchy cauliflower and macaroni

    • Hannaha100 on April 20, 2022

      Made a vegan version of this with penne pasta (300g) instead of macaroni. Taste was blander than I expected. Filling. Ok. M1 loved it, M2 barely tried it.

  • Rhubarb, apple and oat crumble

    • Hannaha100 on January 26, 2017

      This was good. Made dairy free with sunflower spread. Tried to cut corners using food processor for crumble but overmixed it. Lesson learned. Would make again, just the right level of sweetness.
