Spending six months cooking along with Nigel Slater for a weekly food blog event (I Heart Cooking Clubs), I had to go back and add a review to this book after rating it back in 2010 because I have spent so much time with it lately. For me, the only thing that stops it from being a 5 star is the lack of pictures but this small paperback (mine is old, picked up from a used book store several years ago) is an essential part of my cookbook collection. I grab it whenever I need inspiration for a quick and mostly effortless pantry meal. Nigel's recipes work well as written but are even better as a starting point to add your own spin.

Dishes I have made and posted in the past six months from Real Fast Food:

White Beans with Tarragon and (Coconut) Cream:

Butted Eggs (aka: Heaven!): ;-)

Hot Lentils with Mint Vinaigrette:

A variation of his Bulgur Wheat and Eggplant Pilaf:

Besides those I have also made the Deep Fried Camembert, Hot Cheese Muffins, Apples with Brown Butter and Sugar, Quinoa with Thyme & Taleggio, and Savoy (or Nappa) Cabbage with (Turkey) Bacon--you can find these posted on the blog as well--just look them up by name on the search feature.
