    Very Low Fat Fromage Frais (VLFFF) Ideas

    1. as it is - ideal for topping fresh fruit or sweet trifles (add sweetener to taste)
    2. as it is - swirl into soups or other savoury dishes in place of cream to thicken slightly
    3. Add - anything - garlic, herbs, onion, chives, cucumber, mint, salmon, prawns, lean ham
    4. Coleslaw - use in place of mayonnaise - add seasonings etc.
    5. Potato salad - green day
    6. Spicy dishes - chicken tikka or curry - mix VLFFF with the spices, marinade and cook in normal way (grill etc).
    7. Chocolate mousse - add 2 sachets of Options chocolate sachets to 500g VLFFF and stir well.
    8. Jelly mousse - make up 1 pt sugar free jelly. Leave to cool and almost set (until like frog spawn!). Whisk in 500g VLFFF and leave to set.
    9. Prawn cocktail - Use VLFFF instead of mayo & add small amount of tomato sauce for colour.
    10. Spicy chicken/turkey - Take 2 heaped tbsp VLFFF, 1 heaped tsp curry powder, ½ tsp cayenne pepper, 1 tsp tomato puree. Mix together and use to marinade meat. Ideal for BBQs or grilled.
    11. Cream substitute - add lots of sweetener (4/5 tbsp per large tub) and 3 or 4 capfuls of vanilla essence, mix well & stir into soft fruit ie hot raspberries etc.
    When you are cooking with Fromage Frais, always add it as a thickener off the heat just before you serve otherwise it separates and is not appealing.
