Itís a popular one with her fans cookie. Mind you, they are not happy with all of her recipes and arenít afraid to post negative comments sometimes as you would have noticed.

Yes Judy, I have noticed.

I haven't noticed any negative comments, but then, I only read her regular emails, I don't follow her 'socials'.  I suspect that it may be a case of you can't please everyone all the time.  That's the trouble with the internet, you can be scathing and still be anonymous - we once got a negative review about our business, purely because the customer liked us, but didn't like the suburb / street we were in!!

Thatís a bit unfair of your customer Marina, I would have thought customer service would have been the most important thing. The site I was referring to for Nagiís fansí comments all use their name and you have the usual love and dislikes of the recipes. Sometimes I think it may be user error though, she certainly gives plenty of notes and substitutes to make following her recipes easy but some people donít bother to read it all.

I totally agree Judy. I  may say something was too liquid etc but to criticise too much it probably is user error.
That's nasty Marina.

Some people are just plain nasty.. most however are nice.
Judy, I never peel eggplant. I use 1 a week. Even if the skin looks tough it softens when cooked. I make a lot of Ratatouille so it is cooked a long time. I use it without the skin for a dip but then I char it on the gas flame. Cut it in half and scoop out the flesh.
I wouldnít dream of criticizing RTE.  she is such a generous cook. Of course not everything is to everyoneís taste.

Depending on the recipe, I often zap eggplant in the microwave before adding it to the rest of the ingredients, just to be sure it is completely cooked (and if it doesn't matter that it is perhaps a bit mushier at the end).

Made the Balsamic Mushrooms. Cooked them in AF. Lovely. Handy to keep in fridge and reheat in microwave. Do a lot as they shrink to about a 1/3 rd.

I made these a week or two ago.  They were very nice, but I have a similar recipe which I prefer.  You are right, though, do lots as they shrink quite a lot!

Interesting, I thought I might rey some of my home made fruit vinegar next time.

That would be interesting Chookie - I'll keep an eye open for the result.  I also thought a drop or two of liquid smoke might make a difference.

They certainly sound delicious. I must buy some mushrooms and make them.

Marinated Vegetarian Pasta Salad

I made this at the weekend https://www.recipetineats.com/vegetarian-pasta-salad/#jump-dozer Unfortunately I didn't allow enough time for things to marinate but, despite that, it was really nice and lasted well in the fridge.  I might swap some of the veges out (or add more) next time, but I am very happy with this recipe.

That looks nice Marina. Perfect for the weather that is coming up.
