    This may sound a bit odd but I want to know about all canned products (not just pulses or vegetables) that are free, I keep buying the same things:

    Baked beans
    Spag hoops
    Vegetable ravioli in tom sauce

    I wanted to know about more things like this which are free or are very very low in syns (1/2 or 1 syn) so that I can keep them in my store cupboard for those snacking emergencies!

    Thanks for any ideas!!!

    Have you tried the sweet chili mean beanz (asda sell them) they're yummy. On a red day canned mackerel in curry sauce is lovely on toast with salad.

    edit: tesco and asda sell the curry mackerel but sainsbury's are rubbish and don't stock it.

    I rarely buy tinned stuff other than baked beans or tins of other beans/chick peas so I'm finding this thread interesting and useful!! I am going to hunt in asda for that dahl, that sounds like a winner for me at lunchtimes...

    The asda chickpea dahl makes a great base for a curry too. I use it loads as it is easy and free.
    I also am a fan of the heinz meanz bbq beans, they are great with a chopped up cooked veggie burger in or you could use quorn sausages.
