Hi guys, here is a little doozie from good old Jamie Oliver, this one is courtesy of his superfood book.
It’s healthy, tasty, so very fresh tasting and delicious! Try it!
There is not a single way I could promote this as healthy but I’ll try….
Really simple parties, just beef mince, seasoning, egg yolk and chopped onion.
Last night I made a whisky burger and there was no mistaking the whisky. Boy did it pack a punch!
I used the Hamburger gourmet book and it stated to use bourbon but as Gav isn’t too fond of that type of whisky I used a really peaty Scottish whisky called Smokehead. It was flipping amazing, really powerful and smoky.
It’s a really straightforward pattie, literally just 125g mince, doused in whisky and shaped. Griddle it for 2 minutes each side and it’s done. It was served in a brioche bun with rocket and a simple cheese sauce (chedder, water, chopped pepper)
A great Saturday night plate of food.
Last night we made it home from London and knowing I would be zonked I decided to do a very rare thing for my household….. I ordered ready made food! 😱
This tapas selection came from Tesco and despite it offering a tasty and varied sounding selection, it was wholly disappointing. Everything tasted pretty much the same and has this underlying synthetic taste.
The best part was the ciabatta which I personally toasted and drizzled with truffle oil and fig balsamic.
Lesson learnt, cheaters never prosper.
And supreme indeed it is
What a delightful dish, a total all rounder! It’s filling, nutritious, creamy, fresh, tasty and even a little cheesy.
What is it? Well it’s pretty much just salmon fillets cooked with leeks, courgettes and asparagus in a creamy, but low fat, bachamel sauce. I could of easily eaten this on its own but I did add some couscous. It really was beautiful in taste, the soft salmon against the slightly sweet sauce was a heavenly melt in the mouth affair.
It’s also a very easy dish to make, pretty much a one pot deal, in the oven, 25 minutes, bish, bosh, done!
I often swoon at the thought of noddles, I really have an extreme enjoyment for them but paired with Turkey (not a meat I particularly like), well I just wasn’t sold. However I trooped on and followed the recipe.
My oh my was I proven wrong! The turkey stayed tender and soaked up the sweet and tangy honey, lemon glaze and the noodles packed a savoury, salty punch. Thoroughly delightful!!!
Fast, tasty, healthy. Bing, bang, bosh.
Well chaps and chapets, its been another 1st for me with this dish. Yes, can you believe I have never had Ramen before? Seriously, if you read my blog you will know I love noodles and so to have never had Ramen seemed an insult to the noodle lords!
So I recently pulled out Mr Olivers comfort food cook book and I made my way through this little beauty of a recipe. Its a somewhat complex recipe, it takes time so be prepared to enjoy your kitchen for a while but its defiantly worth it!
I really enjoyed the whole mix. The soft noodle soaked up all of the delicious salty broth and the runny soft boiled egg was beautiful against the tender flavorful meat. I even enjoyed the crackling (which I don’t normally), although it was a little awkward to eat and I resulted in diving in with the fingers!
I take great pleasure in delving into the many burger recipe books I have but I always tend to lean towards the Beef variety (knowing that Gav likes these bad boys best!). So, now and again I force myself to pick a recipe which offers a little more adventure!
Last week I plucked out this little nipper (Crab….Do you get it? Ha) and it was a great pick indeed, adventure paid off!
After looking at the recipe initially I wondered how substantial this burger was going to be? I’m not greedy and I mainly have a balanced healthy diet but when I have a burger, I’ not really thinking “Health”…..I’m more along the lines of “Give me food!!!”
The actual burger ingredients didn’t look like they would produce anything more than a slither but how wrong I was. The pattie turned out to be a huge chunk of a thing which I was most pleased about! I popped it in a brioche bun and made some onion rings as a side.
It was filling, tasty and offered something a little different. A great Saturday night dish!
Aww man, seriously…..how cute are these snack pots?
I’m not really supposed to be spending mulah at the moment but I saw these yesterday (in the sale too!) and I couldn’t resist. Last night, in a terribly uncool way, I had great fun filling them with today’s breakfast and lunch!
A healthy day ready for a somewhat naughty movie night tonight!
