Slimming World Leek and Potato Soup

Slimming World Leek and Potato Soup

This is an absolute favourite of mine. Really easy to do, so filling and here's a trick - don't peel your potatoes…it gives the soup a thickness that others achieve by adding cream. No syns in this one!

Ingredients:

  • Frylight
  • One large onion
  • 2 large leeks
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 4 x medium sized white potatoes
  • Mixed herbs
  • Litre of vegetable stock

Method:

Spray a pan with frylight and turn on to a medium heat.
Chop the onion and add to the pan.
Next, wash and roughly chop up the leeks. Add them next and slowly soften both the onions and the leeks.
Dice up the potatoes (with the skin still on!) and add to the pan.
Pour over the stock and ensure it covers the ingredients. Add a large pinch of mixed herbs and let it simmer for around 20 minutes.

Check that the potatoes are softened and then using a hand blender, whizz up the ingredients to make a thick and creamy soup. Perfect for those winter days!

Method

Boil the rice and set aside to cool

Heat sesame oil in pan and add the chicken. Cook the chicken part through then add chopped spring onions. Add 20g sesame seeds and allow them to toast in the pan. This will release a gorgeous smell!

Add Chinese 5 spice to the pan and a splash of soy sauce and a splash of oyster sauce.

Once the chicken is cooked through, add the boiled rice and a little more soy sauce and oyster sauce. Mix thoroughly.

Make a hole in the middle and add two mixed eggs. Stir constantly (like making scrambled eggs). Once the egg is cooked through, mix it altogether.

Chicken fried rice - done!

I serve this with mayflower curry sauce - around 4 syns per portion - and slimming world chips for a great takeaway substitute / stodgy dinner for when you feel like you just need carbs!

Slimming World Lasagne

This is a really straightforward  dish - as my husband commented last night, it seems like a complicated and time-consuming dish but it's actually really simple.

Meat Sauce

5% beef mince - 500g

Oregano

Mixed Herbs

Onions - 2

3 cloves of garlic

Chopped tomatoes - 2 cans

4 chestnut Mushrooms

1/2 Carrot - grated

Tomato puree - 1 tablespoon

1 beef stock cube - crumbled into sauce

White Sauce

250g quark

250g fat free yogurt

60g parmesan

Salt

Pepper

Pinch of mixed herbs

Other ingredients:

Frylight

Lasagne sheets

 Method

I make it just as I would my bolognese then pop it into a casserole dish, top with the white sauce and Lasagne sheets, then leave it for 30 minutes in the oven at 180 degrees celsius.

Chop the two onions and crush the three cloves of garlic. Coat the pan in frylight and slowly cook the onions. Once they are softened, add the garlic and the herbs. I find if I add the herbs at this point, you get a much nicer flavour through the dish.

Add the mince and break it up. Cook through for 5 minutes then add the chopped tomatoes, puree and 1/2 carrot. Crumble up a stock cube and stir through.

Meanwhile, add the quark, yogurt and grated Parmesan into a bowl and mix thoroughly. Season with salt and pepper and a small pinch of mixed herbs.

Take half the meat sauce mixture and line the bottom of a casserole dish. Add the Lasagne sheets and top with half the white sauce mix. Repeat again until all the ingredients are used. I then top with a little more Parmesan - around 30g to help it brown and crisp up in the oven.

Serve with a mixed green salad.
