Jamie’s 30 Minute Meals

 

I absolutely love this series! Jamie Oliver cooks really fantastic but simple food, but they’ve removed lots of the recipes of the website and now I’m going to have to go out and actually buy the book!

There was one recipe which I was going to share with you today that I had saved and was desperate to try.

It was a different take on chicken skewers. Obviously I’m a vegetarian, but only me and my mum are in my family so I thought I would cook chicken for everyone else and king prawns for us. (This is what we usually do and everyone decides they would much rather eat king prawns.)

My favourite thing about his 30 minute meals are the salads and sides.

And aha! I’m a genius here is the full recipe http://www.channel4.com/4food/recipes/chefs/jamie-oliver/chicken-skewers-and-fruit-and-mint-sugar-meal including noodle salad and desert!

Lunch Time – A Tasty Alternative!

I have been wanting to make this for a while. I’m not really a massive fan of pizza, I prefer something lighter. I can also be quite funny about warm food on a warm day. Therefore, this is perfect for me – plus I had all the ingredients already in my kitchen!

These are lovely, healthy, tasty and quick! I haven’t thought of a name yet but I’m hoping by the end of this post I’ll have thought of one…

Ingredients

  • 2 slices of bread
  • 1 mozzarella ball
  • 2 small tomatoes

That is all you will need for the variation I’m making today! But of course, like a normal pizza, you can put almost anything on it.

And this is just how simple it is…

1) Toast bread

2) While you bread is toasting, slice mozzarella and tomatoes. And switch on the grill.

3) Once your toast pops, put the topping on and slide it under the grill.

4) Watch it for a couple of minutes until it is grilled to how you like it (as you can see I like mine so the cheese is all melted on the outside but not on the inside but my tomatoes are all lovely and soft)

5) Eat 🙂

Next time I think it will need… basil or capers or anchovies. This was very mild, next time high flavour! Maybe even something a bit spicier!

Dinner Today

Mmmm innocent smoothies now make veg pots. This is the thai curry one and it is amaaazing.

There are 3 portions of veg in it, including carrots, cabbage, peppers, sweetcorn, eadame beans and lots more.

I know I’m a lazy cook but this is so tasty, quick and it was half price in tescos so I just couldn’t resist! (I know as it was so quick I could have taken the time to put it on a plate but that just creates more washing – this meal creates only one fork!)

Plus it came with the standard amusing innocent packaging. This time including a 3 minute holiday to Thailand.
