Jamie Oliver introduced at least one generation to the idea of easy cooking and healthier eating that was still brilliantly tasty and approachable. And some of us still say “pukka tukka” when we serve these fab recipes.
Spanish Olive Oil Tortas ~ Tortas de Aceite
We've been wobbly in the knees for these sweet and shatteringly crisp little Spanish olive oil tortas. And now that we know how to make them at home, we can't decide if that's a good thing or not...
Jamie Oliver's Sunday Roast
An exceptionally tender roast and crisp-as-can-be roasted potatoes that will make any meal memorable beyond words.
The Best Chicken and Leek Pot Pie
Tender chicken and sausage meatballs sidle up alongside sweet leeks and a tipsy white wine cream sauce. Then the whole shebang is topped with indecently rich and flaky puff pastry in this recipe from (90s flashback alert) Jamie Oliver.
Japanese-Style Cucumber Salad
Simple. Surprising. Spunky. Just what we look for in a summer salad. Just what we found in this jumble of cucumbers, vinegar, and ginger.
Seared steak. Caramelized onions. Warm ciabatta. Sounds like something we're not going to want to share. (And yes, this works perfectly with that leftover steak you have in the fridge.)
Pappardelle with Slow Cooked Meat
A show of hands, please. Who swoons to meat that's slowly imbued with wine and aromatics and then tossed atop pasta? Just as we thought.
Warm Arugula Salad
Caramelized red onions. Pancetta. Pine nuts. A dribble of balsamic vinegar. Peppery arugula. Convinced yet?
Seared Scallops, Asparagus and Leeks
We have precious few absolutes, yet we always, always keep things simple with sea scallops. Why shroud that supple sweetness?
English Onion Soup with Sage and Cheddar
Slowly sweating the onions releases the sublime flavors of this English onion soup by Jamie Oliver. Use a variety of onions: white, red, and shallots.
Rigatoni with Tomatoes, Eggplant, Mozzarella
Jumble together pasta, tomatoes, eggplant, ooey gooey mozzarella, and a splash of cream in just 35 minutes. Leftovers turn into casserole.
