The BEST Sprout dish you will ever eat

Cook book, Food, Jamie Oliver, Jamie's comfort food, Spicy, Vegetarian

Jamie Oliver’s Comfort food cookbook is one that I particularly enjoy but for quite some time I’ve flicked past the quesadilla recipe which features sprouts as the main ingredient. Sprouts. It’s really never appealed to me on any level.

Alas, Christmas came and went and I found I had a small stockpile of raw sprouts left and so it seemed fate was telling me that this recipe needed to be tried.

As I was cooking I genuinely wished we were having a different dish, I quite honestly couldn’t imagine an enjoyable taste and my stomach yearned for something higher scoring on the naughty scale. But something wonderful happened, as I started to cook the sprout mixture in the butter the most amazing smell took over the kitchen and I knew I had been wrong!

Wow. Seriously, wow. This quesadilla was the tastiest I had ever eaten. The mixture retained the strong savory, earthy sprout taste but engaged with a buttery creamy flavor which was out of this world. Mixed in with some fresh spicy sauce we really did have a winning dish and I will be making this for any lucky guests.

It just shows…don’t judge the sprout.

Diablo burger

Beef, Cook book, Hamburger gourmet, Spicy

I LOVE a good burger and I often buy Gav burger cook books as he LOVES them more than me (however I tend to book them so I guess really I’m buying myself the cook book!)

The most recent recipe tried from the Hamburger Gourmet cookbook was the Diablo burger, a hot and spicy beef burger. 

 
It was lush! For those of you who read my blog you will know I am partial to a spicy kick and this delivered. 

Bolognese basics

Cook book, Food, Foodie, Pasta

I had the need for serious comfort food lastnight and so I made my way to Jamie’s ministry of food. This book is full of easy, tasty recipes but more importantly, they are all very homely recipes!

Now I’ve made many a Bolognese before but never this one. It took some prep: some chopping and about an hour to simmer but it’s really worth it. The sauce resulted in being thick and flavorful and it really hit the spot .

Apologies, I forgot to take a picture, but trust me, it looked like you would assume.

I’d recommend you try this one, beats a shop bought sauce any day!
