I called this a jumble cause I'm not quite sure what else to call it. Originally it was on the back of a grocery flyer served in half a roasted pumkin, but I quite like it served with brown rice. Its very filling and for those doing weight watchers it is 1.5 points per serving
This came from a leaflet in a Weight Watchers meeting. I have replicated it as the original recipe but i found for my tastes I liked a little more ginger and a little less water to make it thicker. It freezes well and is ideal for when the munchies strike. I think this would also be nice if the ginger was replaced with cumin or chili and the stock with coconut milk (although this would add a points value)
This came from the UK version of weight watchers magazine. Its thick and creamy and satisfyingly filling. It works out at 3 points per portion (based on the British system) Adding roasted garlic (if you have any) really enhances this dish and adds to the richness of it.
Gorgeous! One point per serving and on the core plan. I've made these with strawberries but have wondered what lemon and lime or mandarin would be like - answers on a postcard. Note, the prep time will differ depending on the brand of Jelly used
A great recipie from a British Weight watchers magazine. It is half a point per serving. These crispy slices are just brilliant! they make an alternative to chips or fries and they are awesome in a sandwich with some low fat mayo. When I make these I often cheat and but ready sliced and chargrilled frozen slices which work just as well. Tip - if you cut the slices quite thinly they take on a great chewy texture.
This comes from a British Weight Watchers cookbook. It weighs in 3.5 points per serving and is on the core plan. It's quite hardy, the first time I made this I found out the scales were wrong and put double the polenta in, it still worked but we used the left over to keep the front door open... :)
This makes a great snack or lunchbox filler. It comes from a British Weight Watchers cookbook and tastes good hot or cold. It's worth taking the time to get the tofu extra crispy as it adds to the texture. In British Weight Watchers this is 4.5 points. It is easy to double and triple if needed and requires few "fresh" ingredients making it an ideal store cupboard standby.
This is from a British weight watchers cookbook. In British points it is 2 ponts per serving - apologies but I don't know the american equivalent - please feel free to Zmail me if you can shed any light. By bigger half likes these with a large squeeze of barbeque sauce in but of course this will alter your points value. I like this served in a wrap with a little grated cheese thrown in.
This recipe came from Simon Rimmer or Greens vegetarian restaurant in Manchester. This is the original recipe but as I am trying to watch my weight I use 4 sprays of cooking oil rather than 2 tablespoons and leave out the fried plantain which brings it to about 230 calories per serving and 1.2g fat. Its wonderfully warm and comforting and just needs to be served with some chapattis or naan bread.
I crave sushi a couple of times a week so I bought a sushi maker to cut down on prep time. It's wonderful but I always end up with small pieces of sushi nori left over, they weren't any good for making sushi with so they were being thrown away or munched absently. I came up with this idea after an order from the online grocers and have been using it ever since--measurements are approx as it depends on how much spare nori is knocking around.
These are a vegetarian version of Scotch eggs. Originally the eggs are encased within sausage meat in this version they are cased in breadcrumbs and carrots. They will keep in the fridge for a couple of days. From the BBC
