Mister found Hungry? for me a few months ago. I've cooked many recipes from it, including this chicken, bacon, and leek pie. I haven't had one failure.
Make adjustments for US measurements (we have a scale that weighs kg or oz), and Anglophile away.
It's chock full of vegetables, and in the ingredients, the authors note whether it counts towards or for your five a day.
Recipes we've tried:
- Green Mac n Cheese. The smalls are eating it tonight for dinner. Right now. They love it. It includes cubes of roasted butternut squash, whirled tomatoes and basil, and a green crust of broccoli/basil/bread crumbs on top.
- Toad in the Hole. I used sweet Italian sausages from Tamarack Hollow Farm, purchased at the Union Square Green Market. So good. They ate it all.
- Smoothies. Please, mama, make smoothies.
- Bright mash.
- Peas. Yes, a new way for cooking peas. I should have known.
- Homemade beans on toast
- Spag (their term)
- Chop chop salad
The book includes a section of down and dirty recipes for one vegetable sides. Like carrots, beans, peas. It's been handy as a way to expand beyond the blanche, the sautè.
It is not an easy book to get hold of, but I think it's worth the search if you're looking for another handy standard of recipes that are pleasers to tastebuds, time, and budgets.
