Ended up making it this evening instead. Very nice, even the mrs, who can't do 'too spicy', cleaned her plate.
2nd effort from the Roasting Tin book.
Crispy halloumi, cannellini beans, roasted carrots and red onions with walnuts, honey and rocket. Served with greek yogurt, flatbreads and lemonade.
Quite healthy, tasty and surprisingly filling.
Tonights helping from the roasting tin book - Ras-el-hanout coated cod fillets with red onion, cauliflower florets, cauliflower leaves and chickpeas served with pomegranate seeds, mint, lemon dressing, yogurt and cous cous.
Has everyone else stopped eating?
That looks very good....recommended? Do you actually need the couscous as well as the chickpeas?
had my mum and both kids here for Easter so feasted, the book paella, an enormous slow cooked shoulder of lamb in Middle Eastern spices, then steaks and crispy spuds over the long weekend....completely stuffed as a result......order in pizza tonight, but that recommended too, DoDo Pizza, very good indeed, not sure how widespread they are.
Definitely recommended. Very tasty and also quite different.
First time i'd actually tried cauliflower leaves and they work well.
No, the cous cous isn't really needed. I just have eyes bigger than my stomach and after reading the authors comment about a friend beefing it up with a nice lemony cous cous i decided to go the whole hog!
While it works with the meal very well it isn't a necessity by any means.
Just to add that as many posters have mentioned about adding extra spicing/heat to some of the dishes in the roasting tin book, i personally would say to actually slightly reduce the stated amount of ras-el-hanout in this dish. Obviously it's always about personal preference but i think if you have good quality cod you still need to get the taste of it though the meal but with an added essence of the spice.
I felt the stated amount was just a little too much and therefore would reduce it by about half a tablespoon.
Just my taste though!
They sound good too.
The paella is one that i'm looking at doing soon, did it turn out well?
Done that 3 or 4 times, it’s a favourite, pretty much follow the recipe straight, perhaps a bit more chicken if you have hearty appetites and you can also add few prawns at the end.
Jacket potato, prawns, salad & 2 boiled eggs, very enjoyable
Toad in the hole night, right back to post #1 on this thread.
Made a pretty decent spag bol this afternoon and let it stew for a couple of hours, then served it with some nice garlic bread - yum!
Tom Kerridges Turkey meatballs in a roasted red pepper sauce with courgettes and wholegrain rice.
Turkey meatballs sounds like a healthy option idea.....lots of herbs involved I’m guessing.
Kerridge has doe me proud last couple of years, firstly with his pub in the park in Warwick, bands and an excellent array of food and drink, and last summer a socially distanced Squeeze gig plus proper nosh drive in style in Henley. Top bloke.
Yup, quite a few herbs. Think i overdid it with the oregano a smidge though!
It was from his 'lose weight and get fit' book, so very healthy. I have the god-given gift of a metabolism similar to a world class athletes, ( but without any of the effort) can eat absolutely anything and not put on weight ( 30 profiteroles? Pah! Bring it on!), much to my wifes chagrin.
So with me often cooking big meals i occasionally have to balance it out for her!
Been meaning to go to one of his music/food events, definitely worth it then?
Anything combining food and music is worth it!!
Definitely worth it for a relaxed few hours of snacking and drinking with some nice sounds. Not cheap, and it might not be your absolute first choice of music (we lucked out with Squeeze who were on top form) but highly enjoyable. He usually does 4 or 5 at various venues over the summer, with a bunch of top class restaurants, including his, bringing a few dishes. We are lucky as one is in St Nicholas’ park by the banks of the Avon in Warwick, a couple of miles walk from our house, and a long stagger back via various pubs, so no need for designated drivers.
Been a while since I delved in and tried something new from the Roasting Tin - tonight I made Piri Piri Prawns with Sweet Potatoes.....rammed it full with extra chilli and garlic
Followed by some fresh Scottish strawberries with cream - double yummy!
That looks good Steels.
How was it? One of the few Roasting Tin meals i won't be making unfortunately as the misses doesn't do prawns
Was the Irn Bru a good accompaniment?
That does look good, I’ll do that. Neither of my kids are huge fans of sweet potato, but **** ‘em, I’m the cook.
