Delicious Jamie Oliver

Some evenings you just want to snuggle down with something delicious. Cakes are all well and good, but not something you really crave after dinner. But as well as wanting an after dinner treat, it needs to be quick. I have no time for faffing around at the moment. So when I came across Jamie’s 30 Minute meals I just knew it was my kind of book. He cooks a main, sides and a dessert all in a 30 minute time limit. The reason I’ve stayed away from his recipes in the past is that there is just so much faffing about. I’d be in the kitchen for hours and while I like to cook, life is just too short for that sort of thing. But three in 30? Yes please!

So after scouring our fridge for possible ingredients for dessert, I settled on his Silky Chocolate Ganache – just chocolate, cream and orange zest and a knob of butter. Simple! Melt it all together, pour into small bowls (or cups) and leave to cool in the fridge. It couldn’t be easier. In fact I did it while I was doing the washing up. And now we have little pots of yumminess for after dinner treats. Brilliant. Have you got any suggestions for other quick and easy desserts?

    Sounds good! The simplest desert I found out about recently involves pouring some Pedro Ximinex over a bowl of vanilla ice cream – incredibly delicious. Otherwise I’m a big fan of baking fruit with spiced sugars. Yum.

    That looks so tasty. Can you substitute dairy cream with soy-based creamer?

    I love Jamie Oliver’s cooking as well but I’ve never heard of this chocolate deliciousness recipe. I mean this chocolate ganache is definitely something I would make. Thanks so much for posting this.
