♥ Syn Free Pancake ♥
So yummy & really tastes like your having something naughty to eat.
Toppings of your choice (I choose banana, strawberries & 1 tsp of honey for 1 syn)
Separate the eggs into two bowls - white and yolk.
Whisk the white and add 3 tsp sweetner (or to taste), whisking til white and meringue-ish
Add some vanilla essence to the yolk.
Add the yolk to the white and fold together - this is your batter.
frylight a pan and add all of the batter, spreading it gently with the back of a spoon.
leave pancakes alone until you can slide a fishslice underneath and flip over, then when other side is cooked turn pancakes from pan onto plate.
Top with your favourite toppings and serve!
Makes a great dessert or snack!
BROCCOLI AND STILTON SOUP
- was well yummy. i had alot of stilton left over at christmas and it freezes very well, so in it went until i needed it.
syn free is using stilton as hex on green or 5.5 syns if not.
1 head of broccoli cut up into florets
1 onion chopped
1 potato chopped
1 clove garlic crushed
chop veg and place in saucepan of water with chicken bovril (2tsp) to boil. use enough water to cover veg then add more later if soup is too thick.

whizz up with a blender until smooth. while still hot stir in crumbled stilton until melted.

1 can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
2 ripe tomatoes, diced or 1 cup canned tomatoes, roughly chopped
if you have any leftover carrots or other veg then add them in too.
Heat a large pot spray with fry light and add onions and garlic and cook until translucent, about 5 minutes.
- add all the spices to the pot and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute.
- Add the chickpeas and tomatoes and cook, stirring occasionally for about 20 minutes. Serve with rice.

Lovely, some good ideas thanks very much.
Good thread Pebbles
This one jumped out at me. I thought puree had syns.
FREE TOMATO KETCHUP
3 tbs tomato puree
3 1/2 tsp vinegar
1/2 tsp sweetner
1/4 tsp salt (slightly more or less depending on taste)
pepper to taste
mix all together
nuke on full for 30 seconds to let flavours mix
Hi sausage yes, found this recipe on minimins and they were having a debate about it but yes I believe it's being sinned again. I'll change it once they decide

dont need to use puree for the tomato ketchup
1tsp lazy garlic
2 tsp mustard powder
2 tsp white pepper
4tbsp sweetener powder
255ml red wine vinegar
1 tbsp lee and perrins worcs sauce
2 large cans tomatoes
salt to season
can add like chilli powder if you want a bit of a kick for hot dogs etc but this makes at least a medium squeezy bottle full and I prefer the more traditional one.
Place all ingredients in saucepan and cook for about 40 mins.Allow to cool.put in food processor/liquidiser and blend until smooth.Sieve into bowl(doesn't take long). Put in jar/old ketchup squeezy bottle. I put it in dishwasher first to steralize it. Keep in fridge-last lot I made lasted over a month.
Sounds great but also very expensive to cook!
