Where’s the full recipe - why can I only see the ingredients?

Always check the publication for a full list of ingredients. An Eat Your Books index lists the main ingredients and does not include 'store-cupboard ingredients' (salt, pepper, oil, flour, etc.) - unless called for in significant quantity.

    The flavours are subtle, but with veg from the garden this was delicious

    We found this to be disappointing - a bit bland, nothing special. I prefer to turn to my Indian cookbooks for flavoured rice dishes.
