Cauliflower Chicken & Peanut Curry Recipe Here.
You know what my strongest ‘super power’ is? My ability to simplify recipes.
A while back I wrote a post where I showed how I simplified one of Yotam Ottolenghis recipes which was great fun.
So I thought I’d share the two key principles I follow when simplifying recipes.
The 2 Best Ways to Simplify Any Recipe
1. Combine like ingredients.
This is always my starting point. Look for any ingredients that are providing the same function and instead choose one. You’ll need to adjust the quantities accordingly.
For example, if there are two different leafy herbs, could you just choose one? Or are there multiple flavourings like ginger, garlic and chilli, could you narrow it down?
2. Don’t be afraid to outsource.
There are no prizes for making every single part of every meal you eat from scratch. So ‘cheat’ when you feel like it.
My favourite examples are to use commercial spice blends or commercial sauces such as hummus, mayonaise, pesto or curry pastes. Pre-washed salad and pre-chopped veg are other great tricks to have up your sleeve.
