Featuring simple, delicious recipes from the CHANNEL 4 series - Quick and Easy Food- on Monday nights at eight o'clock. Jamie Oliver's 5 Ingredients is his most straightforward book yet.
'Brilliant' Sunday Times
Using five ingredients, cleverly combined, you'll conjure up THE most exciting food . . . from the LAST EPISODE of the series, a super easy sausage carbonara, sausage meatballs, rolled in hot pepper with ribbons of light tagliatelle in a parsley, egg and parmesan sauce. Prep a Thai red chicken soup, packed-full of flavour in just 10-minutes. Slow cook, and let the squash, coriander, coconut milk and Thai red curry paste, do the hard work for you. Whip-up the most incredible breakfast or brunch option with Jamie's oozy scrambled egg omelette, melty mozzarella, green basil chilli and tomatoes. For a mega timesaving dessert, try speedy sticky steamed pudding pots, a chunky marmalade pudding with cream and syrup, ground almonds and eggs . . . Blink and you'll miss them!
It's all about making the journey to good food, super-simple. Every recipe uses just five key ingredients, ensuring you can get a plate of food together fast, whether it's finished and on the table super-quickly, or after minimal hands-on prep, you've let the oven do the hard work for you. We're talking quality over quantity, a little diligence on the cooking front, and in return massive flavour.
Each recipe has been tried and tested (and tested again!) to ensure the book is packed with no-fuss, budget-friendly dishes that you can rustle up, any day of the week.
With over 130 recipes, and chapters on Chicken, Beef, Pork, Lamb, Fish, Eggs, Veg, Salads, Pasta, Rice and Noodles and Sweet Things, there's plenty of quick and easy recipe inspiration to choose from.
How about Jamie's mouth-watering super-quick, after work supper, as seen on This Morning . . . Smoky chorizo salmon - slices of spicy chorizo, salty sweet cherry tomatoes, black olives, basil, and fresh crispy salmon fillets. For dessert, Juicy plum tarte tatin in maple syrup and cinnamon under buttery puff pastry, topped in scoops of vanilla ice cream.
With every recipe you'll find a visual ingredient guide, serving size, timings, a short, easy-to-follow method, and quick-reference nutritional information.
Jamie's new cookbook takes the stress out of mealtimes and will inspire cooks and non-cooks alike with beautiful, crazily simple ideas . . .
