Having a BBQ? Jasmine’s Best Recipes for Grilling

Image
In anticipation of National BBQ Week, which starts in just over a week’s time on the 25th of May, and in a bid to spend as much time outside as possible, here are some of my favourite recipes for a barbecue party — whether for one person, 2 or more! Even if you’re just cooking up these recipes using an oven grill, griddle or regular pan, I’m sure you’ll agree that summer vibes are always welcome. Here are some recipes that have become firm favourites over onjasminehemsley.com.BBQ Basted Veggies With Almond AioliA recipe that can easily be made vegan by substituting your fav cooking oil for the ghee, and that works with whatever veggies need using up in the fridge.Pickled Red Cabbage With Hazelnuts and Griddled AppleThis recipe says to griddle the apples on a pan, but you can just as well do them on the barbecue for an extra special touch.

Bagna Cauda

How To: 1. Wash and prepare the vegetables. Break the chicory down into individual leaves and slice the fennel and celery into crudités. Make sure that they are nice and dry by patting with a clean towel. Keep them somewhere cool until ready to serve.
2. Melt the butter or ghee in a saucepan, add the anchovies, parsley and cayenne and cook gently until the anchovies dissolve into the butter.
3. Add the crème fraîche, 250 ml water and the garlic and slowly bring to the boil. Lower the heat and gently simmer for 15 minutes, stirring frequently, until reduced by half, then blend.
4. Test a crudité in the mixture to check the consistency. If the flavour isn’t intense enough, then simmer a little longer to reduce and thicken.
5. Serve in a warm dish over a candle or in a fondue pot, swirling through the extra virgin olive oil kept earlier from the anchovies. If the sauce begins to separate, give it a little whisk.
6. Dip the vegetables into the Bagna Cauda and enjoy!
