What I've been cooking #10: The Green Roasting Tin by Rukmini Iyer


Rukmini's first book The Roasting Tin is one of my most used cookbooks. Cooking in a roasting tin is so simple yet such a genius way of cooking. I've mentioned before we're trying to eat more of a veggie diet during the week so The Green Roasting Tin is perfect for midweek cooking. Thanks to my friend Steph for treating me to it! I love this book and turn to it all the time. I don't think you can get a more perfect book for midweek cooking. It's been an absolute godsend. I haven't been too keen on the sweet potato Thai curry and I ruined the cannellini bean falafel by not reading the recipe correctly.

Carrot tarte tatin
I made these into mini tart tatins rather than one big one as there was only two of us together. I had some normal carrots to use up in my fridge rather than the more picturesque rainbow mini ones. These were so easy to make. The hardest thing was to peel the carrots! Definitely a tart I'm going to add to my make again list.

Store cupboard pasta bake: crispy red pepper and cannellini beans with blue cheese
This was great! I made it one Sunday afternoon to have as lunches throughout the week. I loved the addition of the sweat jarred red peppers with the tang of the gorgonzola cheese. Such a delicious combination. It makes four very generous portions and you could spread it out even more if you serve it with some salad. I'm going to make this a packed lunch staple for work - can't wait to make it again!

Crispy gnocchi with mushrooms, squash and sage
I can never get enough of gnocchi and this recipe was a winner. We had it for lunch and it was a bit boring cold but once it had been blitzed in the microwave it was delicious. I loved the mix of the sage with the squash.


The most indulgent quick cook quiche: broccoli, blue cheese, chilli and walnut
I completely forgot to put an egg wash on the pastry which is why it came out a bit anaemic looking. But I can't believe I've never had broccoli with blue cheese as a combination before. Gamechanger! We opted for gorgonzola but I'd love to try it again with stilton.


Chipotle roasted sweetcorn with squash, black beans, feta and lime
I think this is my favourite recipe from the book so far. It was just so addictive. It served four but Connor and I scoffed the lot between us! We didn't serve it with rice so are going to try that next time.  I used a spaghetti squash for the first time. I just cut it into rounds and I think I preferred it over butternut squash.


Quick cook leek Orzotto with asparagus and hazelnuts
This did exactly what it said on the tin and was very quick to make. It makes a great option for a packed lunch. Every Sunday I like to cook lunches for Monday and Tuesday so we don't have to worry about it. The start of the week is hard enough without meal prepping! It was delicious, both hot and cold.


Miso aubergines with tofu and spring greens
Miso aubergines are one of my favourite things to order in a restaurant but I never thought to make them at home. It all changed when I stumbled across a pot of miso in Sainsbury's. I loved this and it fast went up into my top three recipes from the book as soon as I took a bite. It was so deliciously moorish. I have decided I much prefer the texture of fried tofu rather than roasted in a dish. It was bit too slimy for me.


Cauliflower with chickpeas and spring greens and tahini dip
I am fast becoming addicted to tahini and love any recipes which feature it. Roasted cauliflower is my favourite way to each the vegetable. I just love how it gets all crunchy and crispy in the oven. This was a great option for a light meal in the evening.
