Autumnal Fish Dish

This recipe was sent in by the lovely Maddy, a key member of the Ooffoo community.
 
 

Ingredients

  • 1lb of Cod steaks
  • 1 small onion
  • 4oz mushrooms
  • Fish stock
  • 4 oz crumbly white cheese
  • Packet of Breadcrumbs (or homemade if you prefer)
  • Dill
 

Method

Dice the mushrooms, onion and fish into bite size pieces (half inch squares). Add these all to a baking dish and sprinkle in some dill. Next cover it all with the stock until the water line is just above the pieces.

Put in the oven at approximately 180 degrees and cook for round about 15 mins.

Next grate the cheese finely (as it is crumbly cheese it will have a similar consistency to the breadcrumbs), once the cheese is all grated mix it together with the breadcrumbs in a bowl.

After the 15mins, take the fish from the oven and sprinkle the cheese/breadcrumb mixture evenly over everything. Put this back into the oven for another 10mins. By this time the cheese and breadcrumbs should have formed a lovely golden “crust”.

SERVING IDEAS

Serve as it is or with a side salad to garnish, additionally some potato wedges accompanied by a little creamy garlic sauce would compliment it well.

Enjoy!

I came across this idea last year - thanks so much to Laura at Feeding Frenzy for the photo.
Lentil Spag Bol
Spaghetti Bolognese doesn't have to be reserved for meat-eaters. If you fancy a change, this veggie option is delicious. And it's a good way of using up spare veg box tomatoes and onions. See the variations for ideas of how to use up spare carrots, mushrooms or even runner beans in this dish.
Simple Souffle
So what is it about the word "Souffle" that strikes fear into the heart? When did souffles acquire the status of "that which is served at dinner parties only by the most accomplished of cooks"?

Because the reality is, they're easy peasy!

The only "critical" factor is getting your oven to the right heat and not opening the door to check it until 5 minutes before it should be done.

Our favourite tip is the check for done-ness. Give the souffle dish a sharp shove. The souffle should "tremble gently" (poor thing!) rather than wobble. A wobble means more cooking time is needed.

Here is our recipe for the basic souffle. See the "Variations" section for ideas on sweet as well as savoury fillings.

Apples come into season in the UK in August, and there are varieties in season all the way through till the end of March.

Denise Tolson's Bramley, Cox and Celeriac Dish
This recipe was provided to us by Denise Tolson (of Jerusalem Artichoke fame!). She got it from her mum. We love it because it uses not one but TWO types of apple, and unlike our other celeriac and apple recipe, this one is really quite luxurious. Enjoy!

Thanks to The Bramley Apple Information Service for the photo.
Cream Of Asparagus Soup

Cream of asparagus soup is a great way to use up any woody ends of asparagus spears or any late season asparagus that's a bit too tough to use in side dishes or salads.

It works well with green or white asparagus, so use whatever you can get hold of.

Bread Recipes

Grilled Apple and Cheese Sandwich
This snack is a firm favourite in our house, especially on the days when we’re in a hurry, the cupboards are a little bare, and there's no time to go shopping! All you need is bread, cheese and apples, after all!
Cosy Baked Stuffed Apples
This recipe was suggested to us by our good friend Gill in London. It's a really comforting "old-school pud" that you can play around with, and which also works brilliantly for breakfast times.
Rye Bread
Rye bread is much darker than normal white bread or wholemeal. It makes a really delicious loaf and rarely lasts more than 2 days in our house. It's about the only thing I can get my toddler to eat, if he's teething!
Herby Seed Bread
Herbs and seeds can transform a simple loaf of bread. Baking your own is actually surprisingly easy, especially once you’ve practised a few times.
Home-Made Bagels
Home made bagels aren't strictly a vegetable recipe, but they make a great base for all sorts of wonderful toppings and making your own bagels is really easy - and seriously scrummy!
Russian Black Bread
This recipe was submitted by TFryer, a member of the Ooffoo community, as an entry to the Recipe Prize Draw.

Chocolate and coffee in bread?!

We're GOING to have to try this!
