Peter’s Lamb Curry (8)

This is from Jamie Oliver’s ” The Return of the Naked Chef”. He credits the recipe to his friend Peter Begg. You can vary the curry by using diced chicken, prawns or paneer or vegetables like swiss chard, spinach, peas, cauliflower, boiled potatoes or chickpeas. Serve with some Indian breads and/ or steamed basmati rice.

Aubergine Parmigiana (4-6)

This dish from Northern Italy  can be served as a vegetarian main course or as a side dish to accompany roasted meat or fish. This is  Jamie Oliver’s version from “Jamie’s Italy” published in 2005. I particularly like it because the aubergine is griddled rather than fried resulting in a less greasy dish than some versions. I like to serve it with some oven chips.
