5 Ingredients – Quick Easy Food Reviews

  • Julie Bozza

    I am loving this cookbook. Everything I've tried so far has worked perfectly, and has been delicious and satisfying. The dishes have also been quick and easy and creative, and therefore don't feel like a burden to take on at the wrong end of the working day. They are also (so far!) quite healthy in terms of what I need right now, so that takes some stress out of the whole deal.

    Each recipe does indeed feature five ingredients, no more and no less. I like this straightforward approach to combining

    I am loving this cookbook. Everything I've tried so far has worked perfectly, and has been delicious and satisfying. The dishes have also been quick and easy and creative, and therefore don't feel like a burden to take on at the wrong end of the working day. They are also (so far!) quite healthy in terms of what I need right now, so that takes some stress out of the whole deal.

    Each recipe does indeed feature five ingredients, no more and no less. I like this straightforward approach to combining a few flavours in bold ways.

    There is a slight 'cheat', in that it is assumed you also have five staple ingredients already in the pantry: olive oil for cooking; extra virgin olive oil for dressing; red wine vinegar for cooking and dressing; and sea salt and black pepper for seasoning. Fair enough, and my only complaint is that the relevant ones aren't included in the list of ingredients for the recipes, so you have to read and re-read the very prosy (not step-based) instructions in order to keep track as you go.

    But that's a minor complaint, and not worth knocking off a star for!

    How often have you googled recipes only to realize that the ingredients required are five times more than the number of servings or that the time needed to prepare the dish is a lot longer than what you're ready to invest? With Jamie Oliver's 5 Ingredients Quick Easy Food, you don't need to worry about a thing! It has clear cut instructions, pictures of ingredients, so you know exactly what's required and drool-worthy snaps of the end product. If that's not motivation, I don't know what is. From

    How often have you googled recipes only to realize that the ingredients required are five times more than the number of servings or that the time needed to prepare the dish is a lot longer than what you're ready to invest? With Jamie Oliver's 5 Ingredients Quick Easy Food, you don't need to worry about a thing! It has clear cut instructions, pictures of ingredients, so you know exactly what's required and drool-worthy snaps of the end product. If that's not motivation, I don't know what is. From basic dishes like egg fried rice and and steak sandwich to extravagant meals like smoky mushroom frittata and succulent lamb stew, this cookbook offers something for everyone. Split into 11 sections based on the nature of the dish (veg, fish, salads, sweet treats, pork etc.), this volume is diverse and incorporates different cuisines. So now, you can cook as per your mood and have a fabulous meal ready in no time! Concerned about nutrition? Flip to the very end where you'll find tons of information about staying healthy, straight from a nutritionist. 

    Cooking is not one of my favourite things to do. And yet, when I had a glimpse of what this book offers, I knew I had to get a copy. I was pleasantly surprised by how everything had been made convenient for the reader. For starters, the instructions to each and every recipe are written in a simple and direct manner, that too in just a couple of paragraphs. More often than not, I've found that lengthy procedures make the whole ordeal even more troublesome because you have to take care of so many elements. Since the specialty of this book is that all the dishes were made out of 5 main ingredients, it was very comforting. Secondly, the structure of this book earns major brownie points. Each section has 9 - 12 recipes on average. That way you don't need to run to the grocery store, every time you intend to cook. 85% of the ingredients are basics like eggs, sugar, meats, sauces, bread, vinegar and so on. The only thing that bothered me a little is that a select few of the sauces and vegetables aren't as easily available where I live. Another thing that I really liked about this cookbook is that pictures of the ingredients are aligned to the left in a strip format. So you can flip through the pages and pull out recipes relevant to ingredients that you have at home.

    You can't go wrong with a cookbook that has been put together by a renowned chef such as Jamie Oliver. All of the dishes look really enticing. I've tried out three recipes at random, and true to the word, they have all turned out spectacular with minimal effort! *pat on the back* I highly recommend this book to everyone, even if you're not much of a cook. Don't be intimidated by the names of the dishes, they are as easy as can be. Get a copy and see for yourself!

    What do you get out of it? You learn how to cook different cuisines with ease, while retaining the quality of the dish. Quick, quality cooking at your fingertips.

    Only having 5 ingredients for each recipe makes this such a simple book to use :)

    I hate to say it, but this may be his best book yet. For me personally, I like the Superfood books the best, but for an alrounder that has appeal to all walks of life, 5 Ingredients is a cracker.

    Just the layout alone is enough to get 4 stars; for its simplicity and its accessibility.

    Photos of the 5 ingredients you need are shown down the side of each recipe and the recipes are not complicated, which is great for a lot of people who don't want to spend hours in the kitchen doing prep before you even get to start the recipe. And, let's face it, that is what Oliver's books are usually like. A lot of prep! A lot of processes before you can even start pulling together the final dish! It is exhausting to cook his recipes a lot of the time.

    I got this for myself for Christmas and have already cooked from it. It isn't going to be the only Oliver book I cook from, as sometimes I feel like doing tons of prep beforehand in order to get the better flavoured dish. ie in other Oliver cookbooks he has you making the spice paste, in 5 Ingredients he has you buying the premade spice paste.

    Doing spice mixes, spice pastes and marinades yourself instead of buying them in jars always makes for a nicer meal, but when I am in a hurry or don't want to be slaving over a stove, the 5 Ingredients book will be what I reach for.

    Best. Recipe. Book. Ever.

    I'm obsessed with this book! Jamie Oliver knows his ingredients and he knows flavour profiles like no other! With as little as 5 ingredients per dish, I find myself whipping up some pretty tasty stuff!

    The layout of this book is beautiful! I could give 4 stars for the layout alone with the big and bold colours and the easy to understand ingredients list and method for cooking.

    My only gripe with this book is that not all the ingredients are readily

    The layout of this book is beautiful! I could give 4 stars for the layout alone with the big and bold colours and the easy to understand ingredients list and method for cooking.

    My only gripe with this book is that not all the ingredients are readily available in local supermarkets (Singapore) and I have to source for them via redmart online. It would have been useful if Jamie Oliver had included replacements or variants of hard to find ingredients.

    Nevertheless, that doesn't deter from the fact that this book is amazing. It definitely motivates me to cook more as I get easily discouraged by complex recipes with a neverending list of ingredients. This book however is fool-proof and everything in it is simplified and laid out perfectly in a way that even a kitchen klutz like me can understand. Since the dishes are so simplified, you can even put your own spin on it and experiment with additional ingredients!

    As with all Jamie's books, the ideas and concepts make this more than just a recipe book. He encourages thinking out of the box, with a focus on good quality ingredients and flavourful herbs. Adding the nutritional information for each dish is also another marvelous way in which Jamie makes us aware of what we're putting into our bodies. As a mother and home-cook, I appreciate this information immensely. I liked this book very much, yet I have one criticism and that is that the ingredients are n

As a mother and home-cook, I appreciate this information immensely. I liked this book very much, yet I have one criticism and that is that the ingredients are not easily or widely available everywhere. I am able to substitute some, but then it becomes a whole other dish. So it's not a total fail, because I am still sticking to his basic concept. But I do wish the ingredients in the book were readily available here. In terms of presentation, this book is a winner. It's bright and fresh and the pictures are superb. I particularly like the inclusion of Jamie's 5 kids in the book's dedication, referred to as his 5 favourite ingredients.

    Half term delight which assisted in making my charges aka play neices and nephews, quiet in the kitchen. Great way to get the childrena and adults involved without a lot of headaches and screaming tantrums (adults thats you lot).

    4,5 stars

    NL: Echt recepten met maar 5 ingrediënten (naast de basis zoals peper en zout). Ze zien er allemaal lekker uit (vooral de pasta gerechten) en ik ga zeker weten een aantal binnenkort uitproberen.

    EN: Truely recipes with only 5 ingredients (except for staples like salt and pepper). All of the recipes look delicious (especially the pasta dishes) and I will be trying a few soon.

    I loved the photos and the layout more than the content of the recipes

    I love the clean, simple format of this cookbook. Its beautifully laid out. The ingredients being pictured along the side of the page looks great and provides a quick way of surveying the products required. A nice little touch is the listing of nutritional information at the bottom of each recipe. My meal planning was made so easy.

A nice little touch is the listing of nutritional information at the bottom of each recipe. My meal planning was made so easy.

    Despite the visual promise of the book, I was a bit disappointed with the quality of the recipes themselves. The instructions were too often vague or confusing to follow. Cooking terms would be thrown around with no explanation of what they meant. And for a book going for simplicity and ease of cooking, this seemed to work against it.

    My other issue was the lack of flavor in the recipes. I realize using only five ingredients means some things have to be cut back, but if Oliver can say 'use a splash of red wine vinegar' when its not one of the five ingredients, he can give better recommendations for spices and flavorings.

    Another thing that irked me was some of the ingredients the recipes called for. Maybe you can find preserved lemons, rose harissa, or dukkah pretty easily in Britain, but good luck trying to find that shit in a small Canadian city. He doesn't offer any ideas for alternatives, and this makes a lot of the recipes really hard, if not impossible, to replicate.

    If used as a scaffold for creating your meals, this book works well. But a bit of knowledge on spices and flavors is going to be needed to make these recipes work. Personally, I wouldn't recommend the book. It doesn't really deliver on its promise of simple, easy cooking.
