7 Ways is the latest recipe book from Jamie Oliver. It was created to give you new ideas for 18 ingredients you know and love. The 18 ingredients are those that appear most often in shopping baskets meaning they’re both accessible and (mostly) affordable. Continuing on that theme, Jamie set out to create dishes that require minimal effort for maximum results.
Each of the 18 ingredients are prepared in 7 different ways. The 18 ingredients include broccoli, cauliflower, peppers, mushrooms, chicken breasts, avocado, sausages, sweet potato, aubergine, eggs, mince, potato, prawns, white fish, steak, pork and whole chicken. The recipes are simple and easy. None of the recipes require more than 8 ingredients and he includes a note on nutrition, in theme with his goal of getting people to eat healthier and include more fruits and veggies into their meals.
It is the cookbook for the person on a budget, who doesn’t have time or doesn’t want to spend it in the kitchen whipping up complex meals; but still wants to eat meals that are healthy and tasty. They’re also ideal for beginner cooks.
The recipe I’m sharing comes from the mushroom section. It’s a baked mushroom soup which I would describe as the soup version of a grilled cheese sandwich. It requires just 7 ingredients, 1 casserole dish (that can go from the stove to the oven) and takes just under an hour from start to dish up.
