Ah, I like Jamie Oliver. I have interviewed him, and I do think he is the Real Thing.
On the other hand, the TED prize is prestigious, international and sends a powerful message: healthy food for children matters.
Jamie says: “Good food can be made in 15 minutes.”
I like the principle but my mind has gone blank.
Thinks: omelette / ciabatta…? (But I don’t like wheat or too many eggs).
I am currently enamoured of casseroles:
Cooked brown rice or pearl barley in a casserole with (tinned/homecooked) haricot beans, sliced raw onions and cut-up-small raw squash. Add fiery seasoning such as chilli, and/or mango chutney (or any other chutney lingering, neglected, at back of fridge) and cook in the oven with lid on, gas mark 5 for 40 minutes.
That’s dead-quick and no last-minute cooking-stress before eating.
But 15 minutes, it ain’t.
What good food would you cook in 15 minutes?
