    I am planning on making a huge pan of broth at the weekend, full of of pulses, bacon (fat trimmed) and loads and loads of superfree veg. My mam always served this broth with huge, crispy-on-the-outside-fluffy-on-the-inside dumplings, which I am guessing would be pretty high in syn value.

    I am wondering, does anyone have an alternative recipe for dumplings, which is either syn free or low syn?

    Thanks in advance xx

    Couscous Dumplings!

    I thought these sounded terrible but I've made them 3 times in the last month I liked them so much!

    Hope you enjoy


    Couscous Dumplings (free on Green) Donnie46's recipe

    Take 1 cup of couscous and place in a bowl. Cover with a boiling hot stock of your choice depending on what you are eating them with chicken/beef/veg made with Bovril or a stock cube.

    Leave to stand until all liquid is absorbed. Add 2-3 eggs beaten, place spoonfuls or use an ice cream scoop onto a plate sprayed with frylight and microwave for 7-10 mins until firm.

    Place dumplings on top of stew/casserole for the last 15-20 mins of cooking so they absorb the flavour of the casserole

    They were pretty impressive for fat free dumplings, not as spongy but still a close subsitute for the real thing x

    I ended up making my 'dumplings' from Smash. I just made a little bit of the mixture up with added herbs and cheese (HExB), rolled into a little ball and baked in the oven until golden brown, then popped on top of my broth..lovely :drool:

    I am really excited to try this one! I have never made dumplings that often, but they were always a hit when I did.
