    This is donnie46's recipe

    Couscous Dumplings (free on Green)

    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.


    I had a normal dumpling the other day, mmm if you have a packet dumpling mix and quarter the mix a dumpling is 8 syns mine was well worth it.

    you could use gnocchi - its quite low syns. 100g cooked is 1.5syns and you get around 8 for that amount....enough for one person as they're small.

    I use 2 oz of flour at 9 syns and 1oz cheese a choice (or 6 syns) and that makes 4 for 2.5 (or 4 syns ) each

    yummy and well worth the syns
