Tinned Asda chick pea dahl is free food on a green or easy extra day. Rice is also free but if you are using the microwave rice in the sachets they do have syns - even the plain ones albeit very low. i eat loads of the chickpea dahl but usually boil my rice so that it is all free food.

Hi! You probably didn't include the free food allowance for the chick peas when you were working it out. On the first screen there is the option to include a free food allowance where the main ingredient in the product is syn free. There are some foods that are not eligible for a free food allowance and there is a link to a list on the same page.

Hope that helps!
