We’re excited to share the latest edition of Easy Food with you, packed with over 70 inspiring recipes to take you through September and beyond. Read on to find out what treats we have in store this time…
1. Green machine
We adore broccoli, but even if you’re not a fan, we reckon we’ll still be able to tempt you with the dishes we’ve been concocting this month. Golden, crunchy broccoli fritters? Sweet and spicy bang bang broccoli? Cheesy, creamy broccoli-stuffed chicken? YES. Enjoying your veg has never been so easy.
2. Shane Smith
Pastry chef Shane Smith is back for a second stint as Easy Food guest editor, sharing some of his latest creations and his top tips on baking with alternative flours.
3. Muffin to it
Whether you’re on the hunt for sweet or savoury muffins, Food Stylist Shannon has the recipes and tips you need for perfect results every time.
4. Five-ingredient bakes
We’ve been stripping things back to basics with our five-ingredient bakes so you can enjoy a sweet treat with little to no shopping involved. You won’t believe how we’ve been making use of the ice cream in our freezer!
5. Go big or go home
Salad season isn’t over yet, but as the days get a little shorter and the air gets a little cooler, we need more fuel. That’s where these hearty salad plates come in: big on flavour and sure to keep you satisfied.
6. Cook once, eat twice
We’re firm believers that being organised is the key to freedom. That’s why we’ve designed these tasty dinners with the express aim of getting a second, completely different meal out of each one. You’re welcome.
7. Friendly fire
Gather round the campfire to spend some quality time with your loved ones — and some seriously good food! From fire-roasted sausage dogs to s’mores both sweet and savoury, this is sure to be an evening that builds lasting — and delicious — memories.
8. Eat Ireland
Deputy Editor Jocelyn Doyle has been discovering the story behind one of the West Coast’s most unique, pure and top-quality products, Calveys Achill Mountain Lamb.
9. Love those lunches
Whether you have kids heading back to school or you’re venturing back to the office yourself, we’ve got you covered. In this issue, you’ll find new recipes for kids’ lunches — for those days at home, too! — as well as more adult ideas for soups, portable sambos and heat-and-eat lunches.
10. Weekly menu planner
Would it even be Easy Food without a whole week’s worth of easy, affordable dinner ideas?! Not on our watch!
11. From the butchers block
Our butcher pal Michael Fleming gave us the inside scoop on beef mince… then we used it to create this mouthwatering gnocchi Bolognese.
