your right they are free when used in a filling meal.

the are synned in a cake, because they are used as a substitute for flour. The same would go for cous cous or anything like that which you use to replace flour .

Hello brit mum in canada, does that mean that the onion bhajis(chick pea blended in recipe along with the mashed potato) and also the cous cous dumplings would be synned? If so is there an alternative because I am struggling, im keeping my syns down but want to make stew and dumpling, and all the other nice things without it been synned. Thank you in advance :confused:

No you'll be fine with your bhaji. I think the question you need to ask is whether you would have used that product in that way before SW. Clearly you wouldn't have chosen to use chickpeas or cous cous when making a cake. Also you are using the chickpeas as part of a main meal and will be eating them in limited quantities rather than as a snack where there is the potential to eat large amounts very easily.

try going back to the main recipe page and doing a search - there is a blue button to the top right of the sticky section that says 'search this forum' :)

Just be aware this is an old post, and things like this are no longer officially free, and are classed as food abuse because you are not using the free food as it was intended!! Altho a lot of people still eat them and lose weight! :)
