    Hi all,
    I'm in bed with a cold and normally I would binge on foods that are not syn friendly...

    do you follow EE Cai? if so what about a beef or veggie cobbler? have you seen that recipe?

    also the lentil and bacon soup is amazingly filling and lovely too
    oh and meant to say hope you feel better soon x

    Im not sure about Syns, because I am on weight watchers but a few things I have picked up along the way that are low calorie are:
    - Curly wurly's
    - Skip's crisps
    - Ginger biscuits
    - Jaffa cakes
    - Dairy lea triangles!!

    All these things help me out when I want comfort food.
    Get well soon xxx

    One of the lovely ladies on here came up with the beef cobbler recipe, Michelle, so not sure if it ever got put in the recipe section but we've had it three times and love it

    Beef cobbler

    for the beef bit

    packet of extra lean minced beef
    2 oxo cubes
    onions
    mushrooms
    garden peas

    brown mince, drain any fat, add onions, mushrooms, peas, make oxo into gravy and add


    Cobbler mix
    1 pk smash
    1 tub syn free cottage cheese
    3 eggs
    salt pepper
    enough water only a splash to form this mix into scones


    put beef mixture in an oven proof dish, top with scones and take for around 25 mins until golden brown




    IF you want real comfort food add 28g of grated cheddar to the scone mix. Absolutely makes them :D and as I got 12 flat scones out of my mix thats only 1/2 syn a scone


    also as the scones are very filling, just serve with veggies :D

    how about fake tomato soup, its a lot like heinz tom soup...

    tin toms
    tin carrots
    tin baked beans
    3 pickled onions
    splash worcester sauce
    splash balsamic vinegar
    some passata to thin down

    just put it all in a pan, whizz it with you hand blender then heat,

    adjust the balsamic vinegar, worcester sauce to taste and add passata to make the right conistency

    I thought it was similar enough to heinz to replace it

    good luck and hope you feel better soon x
