    Whats the recipe/meal that is the biggest plateful, guaranteed to fill you up to the top (to avoid evening snacks)
    for the least pro points?

    The kinda meal you have when ur low on points?
    Mine is mushroom stroganoff!

    Lots of mushrooms & onions cooked with spraylight. Add a little water or stock, lots of paprika & pepper & then right at the end a tiny amount of low fat cream/creme frais (or yoghurt if PP are very low - but make sure its cooled alittle first or the yoghurt will curdle)

    the mushroom stroganoff sounds lovely - can you use WW cream at the end?

    I'm just new to WW so Im not sure, but I dont see why not?! Just take it off the heat for a minute first incase it reacts like yoghurt. Remember LOADS of pepper & paprika is the trick x

    Defnitely stir fry. Its quick, simple and low pp. Chop up whatever veg you fancy into nice strips and fry off in a pan with frylight. Add in some cooked noodles at the end for 6pp and a tbsp of soya sauce for a nice flavour. BIG bowl of it and hardly any pp. :D xx
    (Add half a chicken breast for 2pp and its even better)

    Yip I agree with Sarah, stir fries are the best. My favourite is prawn stir fry with rice noodles 8pp. Yummy

    Also pasta sauce with paprika and 100g corn pasta all for 9pp.

    A big veggie omlette with 3 full eggs and 1 extra egg white is 5pp. Filling and yummy.

    And if low on pp loads stir fried veg with a tuna steak is only 3pp. Or even a couple of bowls of chunky veg soup is free xx

    I made my fave tonight for less than 6pp.

    Half butternut squash, seeds removed, partially hollowed out with removed sections chopped.
    Diced onion, in a few sprays of olive oil fry light, in pan; add garlic, then 100grams quorn mince. Brown, then add the chopped squash. Cook a bit, add 1/3 jar of WW roasted garlic pasta sauce, any other spices you like.

    Put hollowed squash in microwave for abour 4 mins. Take out, fill up with mince mixture, mound it up. Put in oven, about 30 mins, around 180. If it starts gettin too browned, just put a bit of foil over.

    When done, take out, and enjoy! You can eat the skin as well. I have it with a small salad. You can use all sorts of squash, even pumpkin. (i'm American, grew up eating all kinds of squash)
