    A tasty potato dish for those occasions when you just don’t have much time and you are looking for a shortcut. The potatoes are not peeled, there is no onion or garlic to peel and chop, mince or crush and all the herbs are dried. Preparation involves little more than pre-heating the oven, getting your dried herbs out of the cupboard and cutting the potatoes into thin slices. Vary the herbs according to your preferences. This dish is best made just before serving. I was inspired to develop this recipe, the particular combination of herbs, from memories of a similar dish I ate many years ago in a restaurant in Hampstead Heath, in England, so it is, I suppose an English-Australian recipe. It was served with Onion, Apple and Sage Pie. In view of Bekah49036's comment in her review that her potatoes were too salty, do add salt to taste. People's tastes differ SO much! I've adjusted the two salts in the ingredients to now read "to taste". Thanks Bekah49036! :)

    Recipe #119124

    Another Sainsbury’s recipe from Jamie Oliver’s website. Low calorie and low fat, simple to make, nutritious and delicious. I’m still not sure why Jamie Oliver has Sainsbury’s recipes on his website, but that’s where I found it.

    Recipe #122568

    Adapted from a recipe in 'Terrific Chicken: 100 great meals in minutes'. If you're craving crispy chicken, this Mediterranean-style chicken is fairly quick to make and relatively low-fat! Serve it with a pasta or rice side dish and your favourite salad greens.

    Recipe #351722

    A tasty, nutritious and easy to prepare side dish, adapted from Sandy Frazer's 'Living Lite family recipes: delicious, healthy meals in 15 minutes'.

    Recipe #149207

    Another recipe which I found in Greek chef and restaurateur Theodore Kyriakou’s ‘real greek food', which he co-authored with food writer Charles Campion. So simple, so delicious and so quintessentially Greek! A really quick to make, fabulous side dish to serve with grilled meat and fish dishes, or with pasta and rice dishes. This recipe - for a classic lettuce salad - is from the island of Cos and, apparently, "from everywhere else in Greece"! When you come across a recipe like this one, you cannot be in the least surprised that Kyriakou maintains that “the term “Greek Salad” is one of the most abused in the world”.

    Recipe #141988

    One glance at the ingredients for this recipe and I knew it was, for me, a must-try recipe. I also loved the inclusion of time for marinating the chicken. Marinating always makes SUCH a difference to the end result. I'll be making this without the red chilli, but I'm well aware that many others will probably want to increase the heat. C'est la vie! I'd also prefer to serve it with a rice dish rather than couscous. I found this recipe in the latest edition - May 2005 - of the 'Australian Good Taste' magazine.

    Recipe #120175

    This is a delicious soup with a truly different taste and texture from any other soups I have eaten or made. It is nutritious and healthy for day-to-day eating and is also ideal for dinner parties. Be ready to be asked for the recipe! It reheats well, including in the microwave, and makes a great lunch to take to work. It also freezes well, so it's worth making a large quantity when you make it, so that you have some to freeze. Like most soup recipes it is easy to modify to suit your personal preferences. I first came across the basic recipe in two different Murdoch Books publications: Entertaining: Quick Short Recipes and Bowl Food: the new comfort food for people on the move. The first time I made it, the fresh pears at the greengrocers were not yet ripe and I was impatient to try the recipe! So I used canned pears (minus the pear juice, some of which I drank while making the soup). Because the soup was so delicious using the canned pears, I have continued to use them each time I have made this soup. As a garlic lover, I have so far refrained from adding garlic but with winter approaching - for those of us who are down under - I intend to add some next time I make this soup.

    Recipe #115291

    A tasty salmon loaf served with a warm cucumber sauce. Serve it with salad or vegetable dishes. What's leftover is delicious for lunch next day in a sandwich with baby spinach leaves or freshly sliced cucumber. Adapted from a recipe I've had in my files for years. I don't now remember where I found the original recipe. See my notes below for suggestions for additional ingredients.

    Recipe #118657

    Adapted from a recipe found on the germanculture.com website, and posted for the 2006 Zaar World Tour. The recipe did not specify what sort of vinegar or mustard, so use your favourites.

    Recipe #171094

    A quick and easy, slow-cooked lemon chicken main course dish that can be cooking on a low heat while you are at work. Vary the canned soup you use according to your preferences. And if you have a bit more time, add chopped onions and garlic, and a little more liquid. If you want your chicken to be more lemony, include some freshly squeezed lemon juice in place of some of the water and, for more flavour, add half a cup of wine. I have made this with mushrooms, chopped, instead of a range of vegetables and canned mushroom soup. When making this dish, I have always included one chopped onion and 2-3 cloves of chopped garlic. And then allowed myself a little more liquid, usually a cup of wine. Adapted from Prevention's "Eat Up Slim Down: tried-and-true recipes and tips from weight-loss winners" by Jane Kirby and David Joachim.

    Recipe #121399

    A simple and delicious way to transform fried eggs into a substantial one-dish brunch or snack dish. I read the basic idea for this recipe somewhere recently, then couldn't find it again, but I added to the original idea - which just had garlic sautéed in the oil before adding the eggs - when I made this for brunch yesterday. I used some wonderfully orange-yolked free range eggs which certainly added to the visual appeal! Everyone loved it, and I'll be making this again! The proportions used could, of course, easily be varied.

    Recipe #150759

    A Jewish recipe, originally from "Foods From Eastern Europe Add Variety to Purim Menus" which I have adapted from one I found on www.jewish.com. Posted for the 2005 Zaar World Tour.

    Recipe #136498

    Adapted from a recipe I found on the UKTV FOOD website. This is a great lunch box alternative to sandwiches, and one that children could easily make for themselves. Except perhaps mixing the yoghurt with the cinnamon and honey. Or you could enjoy this as light meal or as a side-salad. I'd suggest Granny Smiths or Fuji apples. For some reason, Zaar wouldn't allow me to include this information in the ingredients. I left intact - from the original recipe - the virtuous low fat natural yogurt alternative but if you’re more interested in flavour than in being totally virtuous, especially if you've never tried it, use divinely creamy Greek yoghurt and don't forget the cinnamon and honey! Anyway, if you were totally virtuous, you undoubtedly wouldn’t be eating cheese at all!

    Recipe #321213

    A hearty, flavoursome really quick to prepare and assemble one dish meal. Bill Granger's recipe from the Lifestyle Food Channel.

    Recipe #165762

    Adapted from a recipe I found in this morning's Herald Sun's Sunday magazine, too late for today's breakfast but I plan to try it soon. It is from Donna Hay's 'Tastes of Autumn' magazine but to me this sounds like an anytime of year breakfast idea! My only additions were garlic, rosemary and sage, simply because I enjoy all of these in many savoury dishes, but I've listed them as optional. Feel free to add your favourite herbs. So that the omelet retains its lightness, I'd be disinclined to add anything else to it, but I'll certainly be making this with some mushrooms. YUM! OOPS! Chocolatl observed - quite rightly - that I'd omitted the butter from the Ingredients list. Add 1 tablespoon butter, preferably unsalted to the pan in step four.

    Recipe #363588

    I just love the sound of the blend of garlic, cumin and lime with the cilantro in this Cilantro Cream Sauce recipe. When I came across it on the Allrecipes website and read some of the hundred or so rave reviews that had been written, I checked the Zaar recipes, which all sounded quite different again from this one and, I thought, well there are probably some other Zaar members who would also like to try this recipe. Being timid around spicy flavours, I’ll be leaving those out – whereas some chefs will I know be increasing their heat – but the rest of the flavour combinations sound really tempting. I was also struck by the versatility offered by this recipe, something that is also true of the other Zaar recipes for Cilantro Sauce, some of which I’ve saved and will also be trying. I particularly liked the sound of Merlot’s Hazelnut & Cilantro Pasta Sauce #31361. Amy’s Cilantro Cream Sauce can be used as a dip, as a sauce for grilled fish, chicken or steamed vegetables, as a salad dressing, folded through mashed potatoes or as a pasta sauce. Since I haven’t yet made this, I’ve posted it exactly as I found it on the Allrecipes website. Thank you, Amy. Some reviewers had made it with low fat cheese and cream with excellent results, some added chopped green onions and some used fresh garlic instead of garlic powder. I’ll be looking for an alternative to the tomatillo salsa. Any suggestions are most welcome. I’ve estimated the preparation time to be 5-10 minutes.

    Recipe #120856

    Adapted from a recipe, from 'Australian Men's Health' magazine that I found online in October 2008. Add your choice of herbs. Lately I've been using grindings of a fabulous rosemary and sage blend in a grinder.

    Recipe #330186

    Adapted from a recipe in 'The Australian Women's Weekly's TAPAS antipasto mezze'. Chorizo sausage - surprisingly NOT in the Zaar Kitchen Dictionary - is a sausage of Spanish origin made from ground pork, garlic and chillies, so if you cannot get chorizo sausages that gives you the general idea: just substitute with a sausage you really like. The appeal of the dish is certainly going to be largely determined by your choice of sausage; and if you like a bit of heat in your food, either choose a spicy sausage or add something like red pepper flakes in step three. 680g? Well, 500g = 1lb; 750g = 11/2lb, and exact quantities are obviously not crucial here. 5mm? 3mm =1/8 inch and 6mm = 1/4 inch. Again, the exact size of the slices is not crucial, but be ready to decrease or increase your cooking time according to the thickness of your sausage slices. You can prepare this recipe to the end of step two earlier in the day (and have the additional ingredients ready) and complete step three just prior to serving.

    Recipe #344049

    This is the stock used in a recipe I have just posted for Cashew and Leek Soup. It has been adapted from a book which I found today and just HAD TO BUY - 'Green: modern vegetarian recipes' by Australian cook Flip Shelton. I haven't tried any of the recipes yet, but all the recipes in the book sound wonderfully healthy; and this recipe is really quite different from the other vegetable stock recipes already posted. If you are wanting to make your own vegetable stock, you may want to combine the ideas here with another recipe. It's just that it could take a while to gather together the ingredients! As Flip says "It's so easy to make your own stock - plus it's a great way to use up things like vegetable peel (other than potato), carrot tops and bottoms, onion skins and the skinny inner stalks of celery. Start by saving well-washed vegetable peel in a plastic bag in the freezer. Keep adding to the bag until you have enough" to make this recipe. She doesn't mention making this in a crockpot, but this is where I'll be making it once I've got into the habit of saving the required ingredients!

    Recipe #135453

    A delicious low-fat smoothie, sweetened naturally with honey, with extra nutrition from wheat germ and sunflower seeds, and extra flavour from cinnamon. A great morning-pick-me-up! I often take some to work in a Tupperware container with a firm lid, and enjoy it as a mid-morning snack.
