10 of Jamie Oliver’s Best Recipes

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.

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.

Steak Sandwich

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.)

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?

Jamie Oliver's Pappardelle & Beef Ragu

A show of hands, please. Who swoons to a beef ragu that's slowly imbued with wine and aromatics and then tossed atop pasta? Just as we thought.

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, and Mozzarella

Jumble together pasta, tomatoes, eggplant, ooey gooey mozzarella, and a splash of cream in just 35 minutes. Jamie Oliver's quick pasta dinner also makes a mean casserole.
