    Breakfast's
    Magic Porridge
    Mullerlite Yoghurt
    28g Porridge Oats

    Just mix a mullerlight with 28g porridge oats in a bowl & leave in the fridge overnight.....and enjoy hot or cold, although cold is really nice..especially with a sliced banana.

    Pancakes!!
    syns depend on the filling
    x3 Eggs
    2-3 Teaspoons sweetener (depending on own taste)
    3-4 Drops of vanilla essence
    Seperate the white from the yolk and put into separate bowls, Whisk the egg white until fluffy and add the sweetener,
    In the other bowl add the vanilla essence then fold the yolk into the egg white.
    Heat a frying pan with frylight, add the mix and spread as you would a normal pancake (i made two out of this recipe) after a few mins flip over.
    For mine i like the normal old fashoined way of lemon and sugar but i substitute it with canderel.
    but you could add any fruit or yoghurt for instance to make it how you like it!

    chicken kiev
    Serves: 4
    Syns per serving:
    2½ Syns on Original and Extra Easy
    4 skinless and boneless chicken breasts
    Salt and freshly ground black pepper
    4 garlic cloves
    A small handful each of flat-leaf parsley and tarragon leaves
    57g/2oz quark
    2 eggs
    57g/2oz golden breadcrumbs
    Fry Light

    1. Preheat the oven to 200ºC/Gas 6. Using a small, sharp knife, slice into each chicken breast horizontally, taking care not to sever the flesh completely, to form a ‘pocket’. Season the cavity.
    2. Make the garlic and herb filling: peel and crush the garlic, finely chop the herbs and mix with the quark. Spoon the mixture into each cavity and press together gently to seal.
    3. Beat the eggs and brush half over the bottom side of the chicken breasts. Sprinkle lightly with half of the breadcrumbs. Turn over and repeat with the remaining egg and breadcrumbs.
    4. Place the Kievs on a baking tray, spray with Fry Light and bake for 20-25 minutes, until golden and cooked through. Serve with 227g/8oz baked potato wedges with skin on (taken as a Healthy Extra) and salad.

    mushy pea curry
    totally syn free on green or EE
    1 Tin Mushy Peas
    1 Tin Chopped tomatoes
    1 Fried Onion (in frylight)
    Medium Curry Powder (as much as you want to taste) blend the mushy peas and the tomatoes together. Add a little sweetner to sweeten.
    Cook all together. Keep stirring till it thickens.

    use with quorn pieces or chicken and even some potatoes? depending on your day.

    DONER SPICED MEATLOAF
    Ingredients;
    1 lb minced lean lamb
    3 tsp dried mint
    2 tsp cumin powder
    1 tsp mint sauce OR 1 tbs chopped fresh mint
    1 tsp garlic granules OR 1-2 cloves crushed garlic
    1 tsp onion salt OR ½ a small onion minced
    ½ tsp sea salt
    Generous grind of black pepper

    Oven Temp: Moderately hot / 375F / 190 / Gas 5

    Method;
    Put everything in a food processor if you want it ground finely for a smoother texture or just mix it all very well by hand. If you don’t have a processor get the butcher to mince the meat twice or just knead the meat mixture with your hands until the texture smoothes out.

    Form into a rough loaf shape and place onto a rack stood in a baking pan. If the lamb is really lean you don’t need to do this. Bake in the middle of the oven for about an hour. It is quite a dense loaf so it must cook all the way thorough. I sometimes cook it in a loaf tin or shape into burgers and grill them.

    diet coke chicken
    Free on red
    Ingrediants - Chicken, Diet coke and chinese mixed spice or tin of chopped tomatoes.

    Chop up the chicken and brown the bits in a frying pan with frylight. Add a can of diet coke and a heaped teaspoon of chinese mixed spice and keep stirring and flippin over so that the "sauce" goes really sticky looking. The diet coke will sort of evaporte and leave this sticky thing.
    Just make sure you try and get the stickyness onto the chicken as much as poss and serve with sw chips and salad.

    I steamed my meat to make sure as much fat had drained as possible.
    Then went on to steam all the veg and potatoes.
    Put in a dish and bung all the ingredients apart from the potatoes mixed herb and milk.
    I left this to soak up the juices for an hour but i dunno if it would be the same if you just cooked it normally.
    Whilst this was hapening i set the oven to 180 and mashed the mixed herbs and potatoe with milk to a smooth consistancy.

    then I spread the potatoe nice and thick and bunged in the oven for 30 mins.
