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.
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!
A perfect Sunday afternoon dinner.
Picture this. It’s brisk and bright outside and after sprightly, nippy dog walk, we come home to a toasty house. We crack open a bottle of Chardonnay (of course) and I whip up this scrumptious dish.
This is a great recipe for s number of reasons, it’s pretty fast for a risotto, it’s creamy and it has huge depths of flavor from the fish and ham. I highly recommend this dish, it’s wonderfully satisfying and rather filling.
Desserts are sometimes a necessity, you can be super healthy, super motivated but we all need a treat now and again don’t we?
Contrary to our obvious correlation of dessert = fattening, we can do tasty, low fat puddings which don’t plump the podge!
I made this recently from the weight watchers cook book and my oh my was it one tasty treat! Made even better with the knowledge that it hadn’t ruined my gym workouts. (Please ignor the less than perfect piping)
It’s a late post folks but fear not, we did not miss movie night this past week!
This time around I opted for a burger from the weight watchers book to try and keep a little healthy but I really couldn’t see the difference between this burger and many others I have made. This leads me to believe all burgers are healthy! ( I wish. As you can see I added chips too so really, there was nothing healthy about this)
Healthy or not, it was blooming good and it stirred the claim from Gav of “best home made burger to date”.
