A Slimming World Spaghetti Carbonara recipe… can it be true?! Certainly is and its Syn free when you use your Healthy A allowance!

I haven’t posted in a while so I thought I’d post a belter of a recipe for all of you Slimming World lovers. And what better way to break the silence than with this super Slimming World Spaghetti Carbonara recipe. It’s my take on a classic Spaghetti Carbonara but I’ve used some excellent elements form Jamie Oliver’s “Skinny Carbonara” from his Everyday Super Foods book. Its a great book which works well for Slimming World with a few adaptations.  Keeping with the ethos that one third of your plate should be filled with speed foods, I’ve taken heed of that by using one third of my DIY Courgette Spaghetti. If you don’t want to use courgette then feel free to exclude but be sure to chuck in some other speed veg of your choosing. (more…)

Pancake day is looming so you need a Pancake Recipe! Pancakes and Shrove Tuesday are a big deal in the UK.

This Smashed Veg Cakes Slimming World recipe is so simple and is very comforting. Potatoes, swede and celeriac combine to make a really tasty and healthy main course and with both celeriac and swede being Slimming World Super Speed foods you can feel like you’re indulging without piling on the calories. If you didn’t want to make these into little cakes you could simply serve the veg mashed up and topped with the sharp onion marmalade however the crust you get on the outside of the cake from frying really adds to the flavour!

I serve this with my delicious Parma ham topped chicken but you can serve with whatever you want. for a light lunch you can even top one of the cakes with a soft poached egg!

Veg Cakes with Balsamic Onion Marmalade is free on Slimming World Extra Easy

Chicken, Soy and Honey combine to create a sticky sauce which works so well together. This recipe is so simple as well there is no excuse not to cook it. This is my own variation of a recipe I saw on the BBC’s Good Food TV show with Tom Kerridge. While the original recipe makes a great chicken dish, I wanted to make it more Asian inspired so I added Chinese Five Spice, a bit of grated ginger and some red chilli for a nice kick!
