Perfect for fast easy flavoursome food,
This review is from: Mighty Spice Express Cookbook (Hardcover)
John Gregory-Smith's Mighty Spice Express is a follow up to his Mighty Spice cookbook; like the previous book, this is a supermarket friendly offering using readily available spices, but this time there is an added focus on quick and easy dishes inspired by streetfood, that are ideal for those in a hurry. There are six chapters: mighty bites, not quite lunch, midweek lifesavers, nice & easy, something spectacular, and naughty but nice.
Inspiration was taken from his travels to Morocco, Goa, South Korea and North-east China, so there's plenty of variety in terms of flavours.
I particularly like the look of griddled paneer with mint chutney, baked eggs with lentils and goat's cheese, zaatar halloumi with couscous salad, Mr Wong's hunan lamb, salmon bibimbap (excellent, when we made it), Dongbai roast cod with stir-fried spinach and peanuts, duck tostadas with black beans & salsa, and cinnamon fig tarts.The time to make each dish is listed with the heading, with many in the range of ten to fifteen minutes; if you're haven't (yet?) done your own streetfood tour of the world, but are looking for some inspiration when you're in a hurry and a cheese sandwich just won't do, then take a look at this book.
