Jamies 30-Minute Meals by Jamie OliverAllow me to doubt the 30 minutes or, if those are really possible, maybe find a new place to have the actual meal, cos the kitchen sure as hell cannot be used for a while.. Most of the recipes are based on pasta, rice or potatoes, while I would have liked to see more vegetable side dishes. Also, many ingredients are harder to find in some countries or do not come in semi-prepared form (eg. the half-hour allotted would be spend only scrubbing the mini carrots from one of the recipes; also, here we rarely find butchers that portion the meat as asked, so theres a lot of time spent there too).
The pictures are gorgeous, the organizing tips are useful, but I have to admit that, overall, Im disappointed with the book.
Green Curry, Crispy Chicken, Kimchee Slaw & Rice Noodles – Jamie’s 30-minute meal
Trim the spring onions. Halve and de-seed the green chillies. Peel and roughly chop the garlic and ginger. Set aside a few sprigs of fresh coriander, and whizz the rest in a food processor with the lemongrass stalks, spring onions, chillies, garlic, ginger, coriander seeds and lime leaves if using , until everything is finely chopped - the smell will be amazing! While whizzing, pour in the soy sauce and fish sauce and blitz again until you have a smooth paste. If you don't have a food processor, chop everything by hand as finely as you can - it may take a while but it will be so worth it.
One of my favourite things to do is cook, even though time does not allow much for it, i still love to be in the heat of the kitchen, and my inspiration and accomplice The world renound and my favourite chef of all time, the handsomely georgeous and talented Jamie Oliver. Below is a recepie that i found, no i have not cooked it yet, but i am duying to. Enjoy and remember Put 1 large and 1 smaller frying pan on a high heat. Put the thin slicer disc attachment into the food processor.
I usually cut something out. Both my main food processor and my mini one came in handy. They do cut down on the work. Jamie used an unusual method for cooking the chicken. He fries it in a big pan for a bit and then put greaseproof paper on top and then a smaller frying pan. On top of that he put a mortar and pestle for weight.
