    Quiche

    Prepare whatever Superfree veggies take your fancy… we’ve used peppers, onions, courgettes, baby sweetcorn, asparagus, mushrooms and tomatoes. You can dry-fry them until soft or leave them raw for extra crunch.
    Mix together the 3 eggs, 150g very low fat natural cottage cheese and some chopped parsley. Lay the chopped vegetables out in an oven-proof flan dish then pour the cottage cheese mix over. Pop in the oven at 190ºC/375ºF/Gas 5 for around 30 minutes, or until the quiche is set and golden brown.
    Serve the quiche in wedges with Free chips on a Green day, or piles of salad - ideal for lunchboxes!

    Onion Bhaji

    200g/7oz onions, peeled, halvedand thinly sliced
    50g/2oz gram flour (available from Asian greengrocers)
    1 tsp lemon juice
    2 tsp ground cumin
    1 tbsp coriander seeds, crushed
    1 tsp de-seeded and chopped fresh green chilli
    1 tbsp freshly chopped coriander leaves
    ¼ tsp baking powder
    salt
    Fry Light

    Place the onions, gram flour, lemon juice, cumin, coriander seeds, green chilli, chopped coriander and baking powder in a mixing bowl. Season with salt and add a few tablespoons of water to form a thick batter that coats the onion. Leave to rest for 15 minutes and then, using your fingers, mix again to combine thoroughly.
    2.
    Preheat the oven to 220°C/Gas7. Line a baking sheet with baking parchment and using your fingers or a dessert spoon, drop small mounds of the mixture onto the prepared baking sheet to give you 12 bhajis.
    3.
    Spray with Fry Light and bake for 15-20 minutes until golden. Remove from the oven and serve immediately sprinkled with the paprika.

    Heres a lovely one that i made for SW class taster. xxx

    Mini ham quiches.
    Makes 9
    9 slices of ham (i used smoked)
    3 eggs
    250g cottage cheese
    Cherry tomatoes
    Black pepper
    Fry Light
    Method:
    Preheat the oven to 150c degrees.
    Spray a yorkshire pudding tin or muffin tin with fry light, and push a slice of ham into each section.
    Mix remaining ingredients (except toms) together. Pour this mix onto ham, slice each cherry tomato in half, and put half on the top of each quiche. Bake in the oven for about 15 mins, checking they dont burn, the top corners of the ham will burn a little but they can be snipped of before serving to give a better look.

    I make a kind of mayo type dip, using quark or fat free natural yoghurt, then just season it and mix some vanilla muller yoghurt to take away the sourness of it..... can add chili/herbs/garlic or whatever, ideal with a huge pile of fresh veg as a syn free snack.... i also use the same to make coleslaw, in jacket potatoes etc.... good luck all . ps im new here joined ages ago but never got round to it til now! xx
