9780718178444

Jamie Oliver's Super food Family Classics is packed with plenty of easy, nutritious, tasty  meals that you and your family will come back to enjoy time and time again.

We're very lucky to have gotten our hands on a free recipe from the book (and we're sharing!) 

Create healthy - but more importantly, DELICIOUS- Chicken Fajitas for lunch or dinner this week!

Chicken Fajitas

Sticking to super-lean chicken breasts is the key to making super-food fajitas, and also provides us with a great source of protein, ensuring our muscles stay strong and healthy.

Serves 4 | Total time: 40 minutes, plus marinating

jamie-oliver-fajitas-1

Ingredients

• olive oil
• 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
• 1 teaspoon chipotle Tabasco sauce
• 1 teaspoon dried oregano
• 2 teaspoons sweet smoked paprika
• 2 cloves of garlic
• 1 large red onion
• 2 x 200g free-range skinless chicken breasts
• 3 mixed-colour peppers
• 1 large aubergine
• 2 limes
• 1 bunch of fresh coriander (30g)
• 1 ripe avocado
• 4 large seeded wholemeal tortillas
• 50g feta cheese

Method

Put 1 tablespoon of oil into a bowl with the vinegar, chilli sauce, oregano, paprika and a pinch of sea salt and black pepper. Crush in the unpeeled garlic through a garlic crusher and mix together. Peel and halve the onion, slice into 1cm-thick wedges, then slice the chicken lengthways 1cm thick and toss both in the marinade. Leave in the fridge for at least 1 hour, or preferably overnight.

Blacken the whole peppers and aubergine over a direct flame on the hob, or in a griddle pan on a high heat, until charred and blistered all over. Pop the peppers into a bowl and cover with clingfilm for 10 minutes, then scrape off most of the black skin, discarding the stalks and seeds. Pinch the skin off the aubergine and trim off the ends. Nicely slice it all 2cm thick, dress on a platter with the juice of 1 lime and a few picked coriander leaves, then taste and season to perfection.

Cook the chicken and onions in all that lovely marinade in a large non-stick frying pan on a medium-high heat for 6 to 8 minutes, or until cooked through, turning halfway. Peel, destone and finely slice the avocado, and squeeze over the juice of half a lime. Warm the tortillas in a dry frying pan for 30 seconds, then keep warm in a clean tea towel. Take it all to the table, with the feta and the remaining coriander leaves, and let everyone build their own.

Portable-Jam-Jar-Moroccan-saladPortable Moroccan Jam Jar Salad
(page 106)
Serves 1

150g cooked wholewheat couscous (75g if cooking from scratch)
1/2 a pomegranate
2 heaped tablespoons of fat-free natural yoghurt
1 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon of finely chopped preserved lemon
5cm of sliced cucumber
1/4 of a shredded round lettuce
1/2 a coarsely grated carrot
1 peeled and sliced blood orange
60g of drained chickpeas
2 sprigs of fresh mint
2 sprigs of fresh coriander
15g of feta cheese
1 good pinch each of toasted sesame seeds, chopped pistachios and cumin seeds

Spoon the cooked couscous into the base of a 1-litre jam jar. Holding the pomegranate cut-side down, bash it with a spoon so the seeds tumble into the jar. Finely chop the preserved lemon and add to a small bowl. Mix in the yoghurt and 1 tablespoon of oil, season to taste with sea salt and black pepper, then spoon over the couscous. To make up the rest of your jar, finely slice the cucumber, shred up the lettuce and coarsely grate the carrot, then layer into the jar. Peel, slice and add the blood orange (use regular, if out of season), then drain and add the chickpeas. Pick the herb leaves and scatter into the jar, then crumble in the feta. Roughly chop and add the pistachios, along with the sesame and cumin seeds. Pop the lid on, place in the fridge and mix before serving.

Once you’ve got the hang of this principle, go to town mixing up your combos to embrace seasonal produce, use up any leftovers and keep your veg drawer clean.

Be Comforted by Jamie’s Food!

blog1

Unless you've been living under a bush you'll be aware that Jamie Oliver has multiple cookbooks and a show on Channel 10, 'Save with Jamie'. What you might not know is that he also has a new cookbook 'Comfort Food' and all I have to say is mm mmm it's finger licking good! The recipes are simple with great explanations and even come out looking like the pictures. Some of them do take a bit longer than others, but they are all definitely worth a try (especially the southern fried chicken on page 292). So far in my household we're up to the 6th recipe!

Out of all the recipes I have tried so far, the Pot Noodles (pictured right) were definitely the best! Saucy and spicy with the just the right touch of heat. Follow it up with the hummingbird cake and you're in heaven.

So go ahead, treat yourself! Your tummy, family and friends will thank you!  (and if you really want to count calories- all caloric values are listed in the back)
