Vivacious Vietnamese stew

  This is a recipe based on one that Stella made on holiday in Vietnam so it is a joint effort after I put in a few extra bits. On first glance this looks like a lot of ingredients and a lot of hassle but to be honest it’s easier than you would think.  Of…… Continue reading Vivacious Vietnamese stew

Funky and Flavorsome Squishy Squash and Black Bean Cajun Wraps

Great little lunch served with a big salad or nibbles when you have friends around.  My nod to a Joe Wicks a recipe I saw on Sunday Brunch last week.  I’ve changed it to Cajun and made it less calories but they are just as tasty .  Really easy as well. https://www.channel4.com/programmes/sunday-brunch/articles/all/bbq-butternut-squash-quesadilla/6446 Servings 2 (that’s…… Continue reading Funky and Flavorsome Squishy Squash and Black Bean Cajun Wraps

Mighty Mauritian Style Prawn, Mango and Coconut Curry

    Yum, yum, yum!  I’ve changed a few things to make it Slimmingworld friendly and sweetened it up with sweetener and a ripe mango.  I doubled the quantities so I could freeze the sauce separately but it did seem a little bit grainy in texture at first so I cooked it down for longer. …… Continue reading Mighty Mauritian Style Prawn, Mango and Coconut Curry

CHEEKY CHARGRILLED CARIBBEAN CHICKEN AND MANGO BURGERS

Kick Ass Kebabs with Punchy Pina Colada Rice

These are summer on a plate, what more can I say!  Perfect for a barbecue, colourful and versatile as they could just be made with Chicken, prawns, tofu or just vegetables.  The rice is fluffy and yummy.  Happy days.  Relatively low in Slimmingworld Syns. Serves 4 Slimmingworld Syns = Approximately 4.5 Ingredients For the kebabs…… Continue reading Kick Ass Kebabs with Punchy Pina Colada Rice

Seriously Show Stopping Spanish Shellfish and Chorizo Stew

I can’t take any credit for this other than I’ve adjusted the recipe slightly to make it a bit lower in Slimmingworld Syns.  This is one that I saw the wonderful James Martin make on his Saturday morning show on ITV https://www.jamesmartinchef.co.uk/recipes/spanish-seafood-and-chorizo-stew/ The original recipe calls for butter beans or maybe chickpeas but I didn’t…… Continue reading Seriously Show Stopping Spanish Shellfish and Chorizo Stew
