From the Back Cover
This book is about fresh, healthy, delicious food. The fact that the recipes all contain 5 ingredients and can be made in 10 minutes is a bonus!
One of the biggest challenges we all face when it comes to cooking is being tired at the end of a long day. And hungry. And having to turn around and get something on the table that is not only fast and healthy, but tastes good too. Bit of a tall order, right? So that's where 5 Ingredients 10 Minutes can help. It is designed to come to the rescue when the 'What's for dinner?' question crosses your mind. Cooking quickly at the end of a long day shouldn't be a difficulty any more!
About the Author
Jules Clancy is a food scientist, photographer, writer and food and wine lover. She divides her time between Sydney and the Snowy Mountains in Australia. After graduating in food science at university, she worked in product development for Kellogg, travelled the world to make wine and, back home in Sydney, became a designer of chocolate biscuits and cookies. Discovering the world of food blogs, Jules became hooked, invested in a digital camera and started her own blog (www.thestonesoup.com). She is now a full time blogger, running her online virtual cookery school which specializes in quick, minimalist, simple food.

Every recipe really is 5 ingredients or less, and most of those ingredients are easy to get from your local supermarket. The recipes also come with suggestions of substitutions, additions, or things to add if you have more time.
Crucially, of the recipes I've tested, I have found that they only took around 10 minutes. Some took a little longer although that was more down to my knife skills / not being able to find things in the cupboard. This isn't like Jamie's 15 minute meals, which although they may look a little more exciting, they take far more than 15 minutes and a whole ream of ingredients!
The only downside is that some of the recipes maybe are a little boring - although this is more down to the nature of the "5 ingredients" than a flaw of the author, and of course, a quick chilli made in 10 minutes is not going to be as deep in flavour as one simmered for 2 hours!
However, I really recommend this book, for those on a budget as well as those wanting something quick and easy.
One point to note: this book relies a bit on pulses, beans and chickpeas etc. Personally I love that - fast, healthy and cheap. However, I do know that for some people these are not the regular things they eat. Certain members of my family looked at this book like it was suggesting they make some sort of alien food, and they threw it back at me with "I think I'll just stick to oven chips thanks". For me, I like that this book has steered me away from eating processed food when I'm tired and don't want to cook. But if you're not a fan of pulses etc, this may not be the book for you.
I came across this book, while looking for healthy & quick recipes online. I came across the website Stonesoup & tried a couple of recipes & was amazed. I then looked at the website & realised Jules Clancy had just release this book in the UK. So it was a no brainer
Also as much as I love Jamie Oliver, his 15min meals are only that if you're super organised & super quick. These recipes allow you to have ingredients in the cupboard & fridge, where you can decide there & then, and still be under your 10 min!
I've bought 1 for myself, 1 for a friend & another friend is buying one as we speak! Can't recommend more highly!
