First impressions – Jamie’s 15 Minute Meals

I couldn’t stop myself buying Jamie Oliver’s latest book – 15 Minute Meals – today at WH Smith, where it is half price at £13 (and £12 on Amazon!).  I haven’t cooked anything yet but have salivated over the recipes and it DOES look good, although I think many of the meals will take closer to 30 minutes.  Still, that’s not bad.  There is a section for chicken, beef, pork, lamb, fish, pasta, soups and sarnies and veggie recipes, and they are all nutritionally balanced.  There is a lot of variety, plenty of new ideas and each recipe includes a main dish and at least one side dish (no desserts though).  Those I plan to try (not being a meat eater) include: Crackin’ crab briks with couscous salad and salsa; Green tea salmon with coconut rice and miso greens; Koh Samui Salad with chilli tofu and thai noodles; Squash soup with sagey chestnut dumplings; Camembert parcels with autumn salad and cranberry dip; and Mexican salad with charred avocado and popcorn beans.  I will blog those that are worthy!  Watch this space…
