I always buy all the recipe books, flick through the pages, drool over the recipes but never make the food! It’s time for change! A quick look through my store cupboard and all the ingredients are to hand:-
1 tin of sliced carrots
2 tins of chopped tomatoes
1 tin baked beans
1/2 pint vegetable stock
4 small pickled onions
Blend all the ingredients using a hand whisk and serve hot
Baked oats is a favourite of mine ! I feel I am being naughty when I eat this! How can it be healthy you say…
Well it is! Thank you Slimming World and #instagram for sharing this. So many different ways to make this, but my favourite is using choc shot. You can play around with this recipe adding fruit, food flavouring, anything!! Even changing it to savoury oats by adding bacon & cheese.
40g oats (healthy extra b choice)
Mullerlight (any flavour)
Whisk eggs, add to oats & yogurt, mix all together and stir in choc shot.
I have made baked oats many times and have tried endless recipes but now I can honestly say, this is one of the best! I can now actually have my cake and eat it. You can use this for your pancakes too, just add fruit.
1 vegetable stock cube - made up with 1 litre of boiling water
1 chopped red onion
Add 1 cup of red lentils and l cup of green lentils, add rest of ingredients and stock, stir and cook in slow cooker on high for 2 hrs turning to low. Stir and add more water if too thick for your liking.
Serve with rice or cauliflower rice as an alternative
The good thing about a slow cooker is you can leave it on low till you are ready for it
So here I am looking for inspiration for dinner tonight with my Slimming World recipe books, magazines, iPad etc all over the table. I’m flicking through page after page of mouth watering dishes. It’s so hard to decide! Eventually I chose to make the Moroccan chicken – I’ve had this before so I know it is a tried and tested dish. It is so easy to make using spices from my cupboard, which I have to confess are quite a few!
For this I have used courgettes, red onion, red peppers and sweet potato. But any vegetables will taste good with this dish, so fill your boots!
