    Love hotspots, cassaroles and stews in winter but only ones I know how to cook are very calorie orientated with massive dumplings :0(

    Does any one have a nice recipie that would be either free or low syns please. It's for all the family to eat so needs to be hearty n filling

    Thanks xx

    Well i make them by boiling my veg up first, then boil/cook whichever meat i'm using at the time. Put it all into one big pot with some stock (chicken or beef, depending), let it simmer for a while, then thicken up with oxo cubes. If I want it to be thicker, I will then use gravy granules, bisto usually, but syn them as I'm going along. Usually use about 4 tbsp of gravy granules, so i syn it as 4 syns for the casserole/stew. Sometimes I don't need to bother with gravy granules, which is a nice bonus sometimes :) xx
