Slimming World Friendly Recipe: White Chocolate Cheesecake Dip





I wanted to come up with something super yummy to eat after my lunch at work. For a long time I have been trying to come up with different ways to use Quarl (fat free cream cheese). I have seen similar recipes around, but this one is possibly one of the simplest. 




You could reduce the syns by leaving out the digestive biscuit, but I believe that this is what makes it 'cheesecak-ey'.

This is perfect for dipping fresh fruit into!

If you find it a little too sharp, add some extra sweetener. Remember to syn if using more than 2 tablespoons.

350ml Quark
1 tsp of vanilla extract
1 tsp sweetener
1 sachet of white chocolate options 
1/2 digestive biscuit crumbed

Slimming World Friendly Recipe: Rice Krispie Squares



One of my favourite treats of all time are Rice Krispie squares, but like all tasty things they are high in syns. I wanted to make some at home and tried to make them as low syn as possible.  I believe that these were a success! 

I used no added sugar marshmallows, which I bought from Sainbury's. They are really tasty and worked perfectly with this recipe. 

Extra easy syn value: 2 syns each

I made 20 small squares, but make sure you divide the total syn value by the number of squares you make.

You will need:

6 tbsp butter (12 syns) 
75g Bag Sugar Free Marshmallows (7.5 syns) 
100g Rice Krispies (20)

Method: 

In a saucepan, melt the butter until it becomes liquid.

Add the marshmallows and stir constantly, until they are completely melted and form a smooth mixture.

Add the Rice Krispies and stir through until they are all coated in the mixture.

Add the Krispie mixture into a greased dish and press down and flatten. Leave to cool in the fridge.

Slimming World Friendly Recipe: Creamy Beef & Mushroom Filo Pie




I wanted to create a low syn beef pie, that had a rich and creamy filling. This pie is super delicious and really simple to make. The filo pasty topping is lovely and crispy, but goes perfectly with the gravy filling!



Serves 4

Extra Easy Syn Value: 4 Syns Per Serving

Healthy Extras: None

You will need:

500g Lean Diced Beef
400g of mushrooms, sliced
1 onion, finely diced.
1 yellow pepper, finely diced. 
2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
200 ml Beef Stock
1 Level tbsp Beef Gravy Granules
1 tbsp Fat Free fromage frais
Pinch salt & pepper 
1 tsp minced garlic
4 sheets of filo pastry
1 tsp Mustard  powder
1 Egg, lightly beaten to brush the pastry


Did you know that I have a weight loss support group on Facebook!? It's a place to share meal ideas, meal plans, food pictures, success stories, and generally support each other on our weight loss journeys! 

Method: 

Preheat your oven to 220°C/Fan 200°C/Gas mark 7.

In a saucepan, fry off the mushrooms, onions and peppers until softened.  

Add the beef chunks and seal. 

Next add the stock, gravy granules, mustard powder, salt and pepper, garlic. Mix together and bring to a simmer to thicken.  Add more gravy granules if required, but remember to syn accordingly. 

Pour the pie mixture into a pie dish (I used a small glass pie dish).

Crumple up the filo pasty sheets, and place on the top of the pie mixture.  This doesn't need to be exact, but try and keep 1 sheet per quarter of the pie to ensure syn values are correct.

Review: Heinz [Seriously] Good Sauces!



I love a good cause, and the Heinz [Seriously] good mayonnaise is, in my opinion, the best mayo out there!! I was really excited to hear that Heinz are bringing out a whole range of Heinz [Seriously] good sauces, and couldn't wait to try them out!!

Heinz [Seriously] Good Pepper Sauce
A creamy and warming pepper sauce is perfect for a cheeky mid-week steak treat. For those who would prefer to avoid red meat, it is also delicious with chicken.

Heinz [Seriously] Good BĂ©arnaise Sauce
This mouth-watering French classic is made with chopped shallots and tarragon. Rich and buttery, it will perk up a BBQ of steak, chicken or fish.

Heinz [Seriously] Good Chive Sauce
Upgrade your summer potato salad by adding a spoonful of this deliciously zingy and creamy sauce with chives and crème fraiche. Ready to eat, it can also be used as a dip or add that extra something to summer classics such as salmon fillets or fish cakes.

Heinz [Seriously] Good Tomato & Garlic Sauce
This rich and lively tomato and garlic sauce is perfect for chicken and grilled meat dishes. A real crowd pleased, it’s a must-have store cupboard ingredient for summer, offering a fresh and delicious twist to BBQs and al fresco dishes. 

My personal favourite is the peppercorn sauce! It goes sooo well with steak, but I have also found myself using it on almost anything. 

Try it out as a dipping sauce with my Philly Cheeseteak Fries!!




Classic steak sandwich


20 MINS PLUS RESTING | SERVES 4 | EASY

Ingredients

2 tbsp olive oil
50g butter

Heat 1 tbsp of the oil and the butter in a large frying pan over a medium heat. Add the onions and garlic and cook, stirring, for about 10 mins, until golden and beginning to caramelise. Remove from the pan with a slotted spoon and set aside.
