Vegetarian Pate

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2007
this started off as a disaster - I used jacob's cream crackers and adding these proportions created a crumbly mess. But I managed to save it by adding twice as many peas, some soy sauce and red wine - all of which contributed to getting the texture I wanted. Then it went down very very well with some interesting flavours going on.

Vegetarian Sweet and Sour Meatballs

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2007
great recipe - people couldn't believe this had no meat in it. Will definitely make again. personally I wasn't amazingly keen on the sweet and sour sauce - bit too ketchupy for me but it went down very well so I may well make again (but I might also look for a more authentic recipe)

Vegetarian Haggis

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2007
didn't rate this much. didn't taste much like haggis to me - I added a fair bit of pepper for a closer taste. That said it was still good - just not really haggis.

Vegetarian Jambalaya

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2007
very tasty easy recipe. I omitted the mushrooms (as I'd run out!) and added a bit more of the other ingredients - worked fine. I did add some hot chili sauce to spice it up a bit and I think I added more salt than suggested.

Butter Chickpea Curry

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2007
This is ok - certainly tasty and went down well but a bit too tomatoey for my taste. I added 4 medium strength chilies to it to give it a bit more kick. Next time I'll probably use passata rather than tomato soup and some more onions to thicken

Raspberry White Chocolate Mousse

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2007
oh my god this is good. Very quick and easy to do and tastes sublime. I made on a camp site with no fridge etc and it worked great. I had to substitute cassis instead of orange liqueur and didn't blend the raspberries - just crushed fresh ones with a spoon to great effect. I also used Green & Blacks vanilla chocolate which was amazing. only criticism I had is that the portions work out a little small. I'd double the quantities next time.

Spaghetti Carbonara II

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2007
great recipe - I doubled the ingredients (bacon, onions, eggs, cheese, wine) to add to the spaghetti and it worked really well definitely didn't need cream in my opinion - rich enough as it was.

Spanish Rice Bake

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2007
great warming filling recipe cooked this for 72 people recently and recipe scales well apart from salt - not sure if I used as much as suggested - I added it to taste late in the day. to convert for veggies I cooked up the rice in one pot, mince in another, veggie mince in a third, and then veg in a fourth (peppers, onions) cook it all then mix in a big pot - add cheese when mixed, leaving about 1/4 of the cheese out, to put on top later. Spread in a baking tray and then bake until cheese has melted nicely. One note - I used jamaican hot pepper sauce for this and I only needed about 1/5 of the amount suggested (gave a little bit spicy taste) - so I provided the rest as condiments for people to add themselves. Another fifth was added by people - the rest wasn't used so go easy on it! Served with tiger bread and very very popular with people

White Wine Almond Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2007
Recently made this for 72 people - recipe scaled perfectly great recipe - I used about twice the quantity of flour (maybe even three times) to thicken tho - then really nice thick creamy sauce (its a LOT of cream!!) Top tip - when cooking for that many people its an awful lot of mushrooms but it works very very well. You have to add them gradually tho or they won't fit! I cooked this then kept it warm for about half an hour - worked fine served with new potatoes and green beans

Kickin' Meatballs

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2007
Made this for 72 people - recipe scales perfectly Only change I made was to leave out about 1/5 dill as I'm not desperately keen on it Tips for cooking for that many people (its nearly 300 meatballs!) Make them up in batches of 20 and then add one more - fry in these batches using your extra one to check when they are cooked. Then place in a massive pot and cover until they're ready to serve. you need a big (100 litre) pot to mix this much mixture - don't be afraid of the quantites of herbs etc - it scales perfectly. I served these with one of the roasted vegetables recipes on here - the meatballs are very juicy but could have done with a tomato sauce or similar. This recipe was so good I had 3 or 4 vegetarians who 'lapsed' to try them - one of them ended up eating 8 of them!!

Lentil Soup II

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2007
Great recipe - easy to make and very popular. I scaled this up to cook for 72 people and it scaled perfectly. Everyone loved it (apart from a few who didn't like lentils!) Was a bit tomatoey for my taste (I used passata rather than tomato sauce - not sure if its the same thing) but if you loaded it with parmesan cheese it was fantastic. Served nearly 100 litres of it and it all got eaten! Only other change I made was to use veg stock rather than beef so it could be suitable for vegetarians. we've made it a few times since and one nice variant was to add a load of beef mince to it.
