    Sprinkle in a little instant mash, its works wonders!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We use it all the time to thicken sauces, stews etc. I promise, you won't taste it either.

    I don't do slimming world so I don't know anything about syn values but red lentils are a great way to thicken chilli, or some porridge oats. Neither will affect the flavour either.

    You could just leave the lid off and let it reduce.

    You don't need to simmer or reduce or syn stuff or use mashed potato or anything if you use Tesco organic passata, 89p a jar, it's AWESOME and so delicious. Don't buy those watery cartons. Tesco organic passata is the only thing I use. Make it extra chunky by draining a can of chopped tomatoes and adding the tomato and discarding (or drinking) the juice.
