Introducing Jamie Oliver’s “Created with Jamie” Range, exclusive to Woolworths.
Let’s start off with something easy…SOUP!
For this winter, an excellent starter is Smokin’ Potato & Chorizo Soup ($5.79) each – With chunks of sweet potato, slices of tasty chorizo and flavoured with smokey paprika and fresh coriander. I am sure you’ll feel extra warm this winter. Packed with a delicious blend of Mexican spice from the chorizo and refreshing hit of coriander, it doesn’t get much better than this! To simply serve this soup hot, just MICROWAVE or STOVE TOP cook it.

It’s essential to have the Sweet Solanato Tomato & Basil Focaccia ($6) each with the soup. Made from scratch, the focaccia is a great combo with any soup. Simply eat it as it is or for me I like to oven-bake it for a few minutes and quickly dunk it in the soup. Just sensational!

There’s never too much tomato in the Mexican-Style Tomato Soup ($5.79) each– Using fresh rich tomatoes with roasted red capsicum, jalapenos and ground basmati rice. This brilliant and simple soup results in serious subtle spice that actually hits the spot on the flavour front. I think I got the lucky spice drive 😀

Feeling satisfied and guilty as hell for easy peasy cooking. Well, there’s more! Let’s move on to the mains. I am currently hooked on the Marvellous Moroccan-Style Lamb Steaks ($22.99 per kilo) – You don’t know how mind blowing this lamb is. This gorgeous Aussie glazed lamb is infused with Moroccan spice and to take it to the next level, it is then covered with crushed nuts and dried fruits. This lamb steak has an incredible texture and great depth of flavour. The only cooking technique you need to learn is pan frying the lamb, 4.5 minutes each side for medium rare. I never knew I could cook lamb like this at home. Each bite was more delicious than the last. Flavours accented by a slightly fruity, nutty note.

An interesting take on was the Crispy Garlic Chicken Fillets ($20.95 per kilo) – Ok, so I attempted to make the outside crunchy, but that kind of failed. On a happier note, the chicken fillets were seasoned to perfection with a proprietary blend of garlic and pepper. The fillet is definitely juicy and tender and I highly recommend a squeeze of lemon for a tantalizing treat.

So juicy and tender the chicken fillet
A dish that radiates with aromatic spices is the Black Pepper Butterflied Beef Rump ($22.90 per kilo) – Thoroughly bathed in cracked black pepper, you’ll have to taste it to believe it. For a medium rare result, cook 6 minutes each side or depending on the thickness of the meat. I got knocked down with the mouthful of black peppercorn because it represents a rich peppery taste. Even after finishing the rump the flavour does not diminish rapidly, so be PREPARED. Overall, if you’re a pepper lover then the rump is one attractive tasty product worth cooking.

Why not add some sides to this Black Pepper Butterflied Beef Rump?
A sublime treat to finish off your dinner is a classic dessert that always pleases, you know what I’m talking about…brownies. With rich Belgian chocolate and in between bursts of cranberries, cherries and smashed nuts to add a crunch to your treat. There’s no polite way to eat the Bloomin’ Brilliant Brownies ($6) each– A fudgy and cakey texture that at the first bite there’s the overwhelming taste of chocolate and it tastes divine that there are no words to describe it. For a better CHOCOLATE PLEASURE, I recommend you to microwave it for 40 seconds tops, add a scoop of Bulla Creamy Classic Vanilla and frozen or fresh raspberries. It may feel heavy, but the spongey textured cake soaked in thick chocolate sort of melts. Sinfully delicious that I am in a happy zone.

Now that I’ve reviewed some of Jamie Oliver’s – Created with Jamie products, my most favourite dish is the Marvellous Moroccan-Style Lamb Steaks. It’s packed with full flavours and all you have to do at home is pan fry it for a few minutes. How simple is that?
What I’ve noticed with Created with Jamieproducts is that everything can be simply cooked within 30mintues. The instructions are SUPER EASY to follow and everything is MARTINATED for you. I think I’m starting to like being in the kitchen 😛
