    I made moussaka with Philly light the other day...the recipe is on the website or iPhone app.

    You can syn the Philly ('think' it's approx 2 syns per 28g, don't quote me though) and then have the parmesan as a Healthy extra.

    Fairly simple to make (you can make the meat bit the day before I imagine) and tasty!

    Yuk Sung

    For a starter you could make Yuk Sunk, usually sold in Chinese takeaways but the recipe here I found become a meal instead of a starter.

    Pete’s Yuk Sung with Rice


    Feeds 2






    Ingredients

    120g Brown Rice
    1 vegetable stock pot
    250g low Fat Pork
    100g Mushrooms
    1 red pepper
    1 tbsp ginger
    1 tbsp garlic
    3 spring onions
    3 tbsp light soy sauce
    3 tbsp oyster sauce
    1 tbsp cider vinegar
    Dash of sesame oil
    Salt & pepper
    1 Washed & chilled Iceberg Lettuce








    Method


    Fill a pan with cold water and add a vegetable stock pot to it.
    Weigh out 120g brown rice
    Add rice to water and bring to the boil then turn heat down and allow simmering for 40 mins.

    Tip rice into a sieve and run under hot water until the water is clear then replace sieve on the pan and leave on the lit ring for a few minutes with a lid on to allow to steam. Then put to one side.

    Put a on a lit ring on high, add mince cook for until it is browned and all liquid has evaporated. Place the mince on a plate and return the wok to the heat, add Fry Light and add the chopped mushrooms, peppers, ginger, garlic & spring onions & cook for 5 mins then add mince & soy sauce. Finally add oyster sauce.

    Add rice and mix thoroughly then cook until the rice is hot, place mixture into freshly washed and chilled Iceberg Lettuce and enjoy!
