Old Rose Elliot recipe

For those time when the Vegetarians and Vegans want to get away from the more carnivorous types.

Old Rose Elliot recipe

Postby Seatallan » July 3rd, 2017, 5:32 pm

Don't suppose anyone could help out here?

I used to make a Rose Elliot recipe for corgette & rice gratin fairly frequently but haven't done so for yonks and can't remember exactly how said recipe goes. Unfortunately, I've also lost the book it came from- 'Cheap & Easy' (that's the book rather than a description of me I hasten to add.. :D ).

If any of the wonderful Wildies happen to have the book and could dig out the recipe I'd be eternally grateful. :luv:

I don't have that book but I do have a few of hers. In case she has rehashed it, what else was in it?

Thanks folks- no- none of the above so far.. if it wasn't from 'cheap & easy' it must have been from the 'bean book' but I was fairly certain it was in 'cheap & easy'. Definitely one or the other as I know it was from one of the Rose Elliots I had in paperback at the time. The recipe included left-over cooked rice, corgette, eggs and cheese but I can't remember the ins and outs. I expect I could experiment and recreate it if I tried hard enough.

Your suggestions are appreciated. :luv:

I don't think it's the bean book. The index is here

I'll have another look when I get home. Are you sure you didn't just adapt the recipe I posted to use leftover rice? The instructions for the rice are just to cook it and it also uses egg and cheese.

I have here with me Rose Elliot's Bean Feast and Your Very Good Health. I know I have The Bean Book in storage, annoyingly, thought I could help! Will have a look through just in case your recipe is mentioned, and if not to get some good inspiration for me! If I find it I will post. :grin:

I have been through both of my RE books and nothing resembles your recipe. I did pick up a few forgotten red lentil dishes again so it wasn't that much of a fruitless search. I wish you success in your recipe hunt or experimenting!

Could it have been Elizabeth David?

I spotted that one Tezza. It does look nice. No rice though.

There is rice in the Elizabeth David recipe, but not eggs.

Actually, Smitch, having looked at your recipe again, it's so close as to be indistinguishable. Thank you most kindly.

Recipe was definitely Rose Elliot though the Elizabeth David one looks lovely too.

Thanks both, most kindly! :luv: :wave: :tu:

Deb Perlman also has a version with metric:

The Julia Child reference Deb Perlman gives kind of explains why there are so many simikar but not identical versions I think

May have to give it a go

Yes me too. I am anticipating a glut of courgettes.

just for those who're interested, this was the simplified recipe in the smittenkitchen link, with the alteration of cheddar rather than parmesan and a little leek to make what i would call a less than medium but not small onion up to size. it was then cooked by the sun.
it was very pleasant and will be made again - when the sun shines.
i used water rather than milk etc and left out the flour. i could have put a little more rice in as the courgette was a little more than the recipe called for - it was half of the forgotten 'courgette' from the community garden last week.

Well, I just made and ate part of a half quantity of the Deb Perlman simplified version
Really like the texture
Paying attention to the comments, I added a good sprinkle of dill weed, as that works so well in courgette fritter, and it needed using up
Worked well, but I may have slightly overdone the garlic!

You get a lot of gratin for your money...
