Reviews of RTE  Recipes

We all seem to make RTE recipes so please feel free to review them here. I'm sure Nagi wouldn't mind as the credit is still given to her.

Oven Baked Fried Chicken

We loved this and have it often. I made it in the AF once but it did make a lot of mess, even though it was nicer.
https://www.recipetineats.com/kfc-oven-baked-fried-chicken-tenders/

It is similar to Chookie's recipe I think.

Thanks from me too cookie, I have a few I can add. Iím sure I wonít remember them all though.

Spinach ricotta rolls

Very popular here with my gardener and handy to have in the freezer to quickly heat up the air fryer for unexpected visitors.

Chilli con carne

Made this for a pie maker filling and was the favourite with the kids when I sent an assortment of pies home with DD. I reduced the amount of spice as Iím a bit of a whimp in that area but next time I wonít as I found I probably could handle a bit more heat.

Creamy Vegetable Soup with Noodles

This makes a huge batch, I did half a batch and added some diced chicken as well. I did add a bit more of the chicken stock and the next few meals I ate with a fork as it does thicken up once cold and the soup turns into a pasta dish.

Fish Pie
Nagi lists this as a good one for Easter.  We love it at anytime. It makes heaps so I only ever do half, that is more than enough for us. I use the smoked cod she suggests and then make up the rest using prawns, squid or whatever you like. You could use white fish or mussels. I use the thermomix to cook the onion, garlic and carrot and then continue on to make the white sauce.
I cook the potatoes for the topping in the thermomix too.  Itís a lot less washing up.

These were very tasty. I used less chicken as there was only us but I used the same amount of sauce and just cooked it down until is was lovely and thick.

Pastrami

I have made this a couple of times and it really is nice. I donít use the juices etc, but simply use it as cold meat. Itís very easy and lifts the corned beef flavour. I only ever use about 2 tablespoons of black pepper. Iíve never tried it with liquid smoke but I will one day.

Easy Chicken Noodle soup. It was very easy and tasty. I made narrow, spaghetti like noodles to put it in, not wide ones like Nagi did. I needed to make it in the 5 as the bowl in the 31 wasnít large enough. I used veggie stock and cooked some breast in a frying pan on the stove. I also added more vegies. The breast shredded itself as the veggies cooked.

Looks like Noritaki ? I also love China.  Tend to go for more informal these days, but nothing nicer than the full works.  Bought a French dinner set at an Auction.  $20.  Use it every day as the dinner plates are not too large.

Post by: cookie1 on May 16, 2020, 10:10:26 am
The baked beans were really nice. Very much like tinned ones but with a little extra taste.
The dinner set is Royal Doulton. It was my Mum's everyday set!!!!!I am very lucky as I have 4 Royal Doulton dinner sets. I have Mum's everyday set that we use every day, her best one, a cheaper one I used to use everyday but it's missing bits now and MIL bought us one when we were first married. I love them all but fortunately we don't break much and so they will last for ever and ever. I love them and couldn't see the sense in tucking them away. I also have a collection of cup, saucer and plate that are Doulton. Some are mine but many were from Mum.

I agree cookie, you might as well use your beautiful dinner sets and your Mum would be pleased if she knew that you did.
Re the baked beans, I printed that recipe but I couldnít find out what a serving size was therefore I couldnít work out the nutritional values per serve.  Nagi normally puts the serving size on her recipes I thought.

It certainly is a lovely set Cookie. I think it's great that you use your china everyday. If family isn't special enough to use it, then who is? I use a Royal Albert set on weekends, DH won't use it through the week as he doesn't want to hand wash it.

Ah yes she does, thatís not what I meant to ask cookie.  Can you tell me the serving size weight please?

Judy, I haven't made Nagi's beans, but when I make any recipe that says serves 4 for eg, I get around it by weighing the whole lot at the end of cooking and dividing the weight by 4 so I get the correct serving size and place that amount into containers.  I don't think of it as a pain to do as I'd rather get the size right.  :D
Title: Re: Reviews of RTE recipes.
Post by: cookie1 on May 18, 2020, 06:47:17 am
JulieO what a brilliant idea. I usually eyeball the amount and mentally work it out. Iím going to start doing that.
Title: Re: Reviews of RTE recipes.
Post by: judydawn on May 18, 2020, 08:36:44 am
Yes Iíve done that Julie but with this recipe Iím thinking maybe I should only make half the recipe as I donít want too many bags of it in the freezer.  If a recipe is for 4 I usually get more out of it than that.

Judy, for you Iíd go with one tin of beans and a third of everything else. This will probably be enough for one meal and one over, or more.
DD bought herself a new printer yesterday and her new one has wifi. I love it, so I have been printing all the RTE recipes I love and will get Officeworks to make them into a book for me.

DD was doing a face to face lecture a while ago and I kept sending things to the printer. It is a bit noisier than the last one but seems great.

I made the roasted eggplant salad at the weekend https://www.recipetineats.com/lentil-roasted-eggplant-salad/

It was a delicious salad.  I was a bit concerned that the eggplant wouldnít cook evenly, but they were perfect.  I used 2 tins of lentils but, unless I was feeding a lot of people, I feel that one would be sufficient (there are an awful lot of lentils in a tin!)

This was a sloppy mix, but she does say that it will be. The flavour was nice enough, however I think we can all make bread as good or better.(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20200831/f503887b24a8ac72305b27fe1449d62c.jpg)

Cookie, I think you are right.  We can do much better.

Iíve posted my latest bread recipe on my Blog.  It is similar to Cookies Classic bread.  I cut a bit off the dough and made 2 bread rolls.  I put them in a plastic bag and forgot about hem for 3 days.  Today I discovered them. I stuck them under the tap and then popped  into AF.  They were lovely.  Next lot I make I will make buns and rolls.  Soft on the inside and with a light crisp crust.

Thatís really funny Cookie.  I used her recipe for Sate peanut sauce.  Didnít like it.  Like my low fat recipe better.  I think the difference is that I prefer the crunchy peanut butter.

It sounds and looks really nice cookie, was the asparagus soft or crisp?  I reckon I could do this and also use some of the other veggies suggested.  Did you cook it in the a/f or oven? I find the a/f cooks much quicker than the oven so wondering if 10 mins would be too much in there.
Title: Re: Reviews of RTE recipes.
Post by: cookie1 on May 14, 2021, 06:53:01 am
The asparagus were softer than normal but not soft. I added in the carrot and corn. I think you could use any veggies with the potato. I just cooked all the veggies in the basket of the thermomix. I cooked it in the oven as the 3 packages wouldn't have fitted in my AF.

I don't know if there have been any comments yet on her Oatmeal Raisin Cookies, but I made some yesterday.  Didn't have raisins so used cranberries, which worked really well.  There was too much sugar so next time I would use less and use a bit more cinnamon.  Nonetheless, the cookies were really delicious.

On thinking about my first sentence, does anyone think it might be a useful idea to highlight the name of the recipe at the very beginning of each post, i.e. capitals and bold to make it easier to search?  Just a thought

I love RTE recipes , but generally  too many cabs and fat. I reduce both and size of serve also.I support her because she is generous in sharing her recipes and general info.  She also does a nutritional count.
Title: Re: Reviews of RTE recipes.
Post by: cookie1 on July 20, 2021, 10:28:13 am
I love the nutritional count. I find you can change some things around for healthier options. I never use sour cream, always natural yoghurt. I also use milk instead of cream if possible and when it isnít. I buy low fat cooking cream.

I made this RTE soup today https://www.recipetineats.com/pearl-barley-soup/ and was very disappointed in it, usually I love Nagiís recipes.  It was tasteless so I added a packet of chicken noodle soup, a heaped teaspoon of chicken stock and a litre more of water.  Iíd reduced the pearl barley to 1/2 cup but added more veggies as it was way too thick for me.  I used a heaped tablespoon of VSC as the veggie stock component originally.  Happier with my additions and ended up with 10 serves.

Post by: achookwoman on October 12, 2021, 10:30:46 pm
Judy, interesting.  I find with pearl barley the are 2 preferences.  Some like their soup so thick that their spoon will stand up in it.  Other like us, like it more liquid.

I made her green bean casserole https://www.recipetineats.com/green-bean-casserole/ last week and didn't like it as much as her other recipes, the beans were lovely but somehow didn't work with the mushroom sauce, so I cooked up some pasta and tossed the mushroom sauce in that and it made a lovely meal.

I think we just expect her recipes to be spot on every time Marina but not every recipe can be a winner for all of us. Lucky you were able to use the mushroom sauce component to save the day. I am looking forward to her recipe book coming out though and will definitely buy it for DD2.
