Shhh .. don't tell everyone but we're working on a top secret new project in the form of The Mumsnet Cookbook and we need your help.

We'd like to get together a Mumsnet Cookbook cookery group to stop us from piling on the pounds help us test these shortlisted recipes.

Each volunteer will be allocated a recipe which they'll then cook for their family and give us some feedback on how easy, hard, good, bad, expensive etc they are and whether they'd make it again. All the recipes chosen were submitted over the years by Mumsnetters, so there shouldn't be any outlandish shock or particularly difficult to source ingredients - and they should all be pretty easy to make (we hope!).

As a thank-you, we'll be putting everyone who helps out into a prize draw to win a Bloomsbury cookbook.

And if that's not enough of an incentive, everyone who helps will have their *Mumsnetter nickname featured in the cookbook's acknowledgements.

Right - we have some vegetable recipes for testing - with more to come.

Who'd like to try one or more of the following? We'd like to have two people trying each recipe ideally.

vegetable tian

spicy bean burgers

Middle Eastern roasted cauliflower

quick cabbage and greens creamy bake

courgette fritters

I'll have a go at the spicy bean burgers smile

BadRoly Tue 02-Apr-13 16:02:45

Although do I have to use the EXACT ingredients as I could make the, for tea tonight if I'm allowed to tweak it a bit...

wibblyjelly Tue 02-Apr-13 16:06:02

I can do the cabbage and greens one, if you'd like?

beanandspud Tue 02-Apr-13 16:37:51

I'll have a go at the vegetable tian - I'm on a roll now!

CatherineHMumsnet (MNHQ) Tue 02-Apr-13 17:21:13

BadRoly - that's great and no, we don't mind tweaking!
Wibblyjelly and beanandspud - thanks very much.

JammySplodger Tue 02-Apr-13 18:09:32

I'll have a go at the bean burgers too if you like, I think we've got most of that in.

CatherineHMumsnet (MNHQ) Wed 03-Apr-13 15:24:37

JammySplodger - that would be great thanks!

CatherineHMumsnet (MNHQ) Wed 03-Apr-13 15:27:29

CatherineHMumsnet (MNHQ) Wed 03-Apr-13 15:49:32

wibblyjelly - totally fine.

LemonBreeland - which one are you up for?

BadRoly Wed 03-Apr-13 20:55:51

Well we had the bean burgers tonight and I have left feedback. Are we allowed to try another recipe?!

I wouldn't mind trying any of the above recipes. useless at making decisions

Dysgu Wed 03-Apr-13 22:35:49
