    Hi everyone, Im having a house party next week for my sisters 21st birthday and the idea was to have a chinese meal together. So i decided to go lite and to make myself salt and pepper prawns but the only thing is the recipe uses cornflour and i was wondering if you can use cornflour on lite?

    Thank you :)

    Its not in the book River :( have you got your book to do a list from yet?

    Allowed condiments are:
    herbs, spices, salt, pepper, red Tabasco sauce, worcester sauce, soy sauce, chilli sauce, vinegar, mustard

    I thinks cornflour is pure starch so probably too many carbs xx

    How are you getting on with Lite?

    You can use garlic, page 12.

    Ginger is not specifically mentioned, as it is a root I'm not sure. But it could come under herbs & spices which are allowed.

    I use cajun spices on my roasted vegetables to give them a bit of oomph! xx
