When we’re feeling uninspired and just can’t think of five healthy, easy, and delicious meals to make for the week, there’s one celebrity chef we always turn to: Jamie Oliver. Not only is the British chef constantly sharing recipes on his Instagram account and website, but he’s also got a laser-focus on creating and sharing recipes that are feasible for people to cook at home, even on busy nights. He’s written several cookbooks that we keep on our shelves and look through again and again for dinner inspiration (dinspiration? Is that a thing yet?), and now, he just announced a brand-new cookbook that we have a feeling will become a fast favorite: 5 Ingredients Mediterranean: Simple Incredible Food.
5 Ingredients Mediterranean: Simple Incredible Food
Jamie Oliver’s newest cookbook is a riff on the successful formula of his other cookbooks, which feature tasty recipes with few ingredients. This time, he’s focusing on Mediterranean recipes, which aren’t just bursting with flavor, but are also heart-healthy and nutritious. The health benefits of eating a Mediterranean-style diet are well-documented, and this cookbook’s focus on meat-free and meat-reduced recipes will give you a boost, too (apparently 65% of the recipes are meatless or meat-reduced).
The book contains 125 recipes, including delicous-sounding dishes like: Easy Fig Tart, Epic Prawns & Beans, Island Salad, Herby Steak & Crispy Potatoes, and more. The book is available for pre-order now, and is coming out in the US in January 2024. But if that’s too long to wait, these other Jamie Oliver cookbooks should help fill the gap.
5 Ingredients: Quick & Easy Food
Jamie Oliver’s original 5 Ingredients cookbook is practically a classic already, and it’s easy to see why. Oliver packed this thing with 130 recipes, for everything from dinner to dessert. And lest you worry that recipes with just 5 ingredients might be bland or boring, just take a look at the reviews: the book has more than 14,000 5-star ratings. “So often recipes with bragging rights about few ingredients are boring, tasteless, or full of icky ingredients like canned cream of chicken soup. Not these,” shared one happy customer.
One: Simple One-Pan Wonders
If you’re less concerned with cutting back on ingredients and more concerned with cutting down on dishes, then Oliver’s One: Simple One-Pan Wonders could be the book for you. The concept is as straightforward as the title would imply, and the recipes include tasty dishes like Juicy Tahini Chicken, Hassleback Eggplant Pie, Sausage Papardelle, and Chocolate Party Cake. Oh, and he didn’t forget about minimizing the ingredients list entirely — each recipe in this book has just 8 ingredients or less.
We can’t wait for Oliver’s 5 Ingredients Mediterranean: Simple Incredible Food to finally hit our bookshelves, but in the meantime we’ll keep reaching for our old favorites of his when we need ideas for fast, easy, and delicious weeknight meals.
