I am a Chef

#1
Hi I am a chef with 26 years of experience working in the catering industry. I and my girlfriend are on the extra easy diet with slimming world. I am on a misson to produce meals with no syns and no fat. I have produced chicken and fish dishes that have lots of flavour but no syns or fat in them. I have put a recipe for chicken curry on the recipe pages that has no fat or syn value. I will post the other things i make as soon as i get around to it. I hope doing this helps contribute to the other excellent ideas on the forum.:D

Nigel, thanks for the recipes. It is one of the many things I love about SW you can cook and not rely on ready meals. Going to try the curry on the family tomorrow , will let you know if it gets the thumbs up !

Almost any vegetables can be put in the slow cooker with the addition of a good stock the outcome is excellent. My tip would be to use sweet potato in your recipe as it is high in fibre and the cooking process will not destroy it's qualities as much as boiling does. Steaming potatoes and veg is allways my preferred option. The slow cooker is an excellent choice in methods of cooking especially if you are thinking ahead to tea time or for freezing. If you do cook vegetables in your slow cooker i would recommend you use a good quality low fat stock, the best i have found that is in supermarkets is the Kalo organic veg stock, it's low in fat and it's got a lot more flavour than other comparible stock cubes ive found. A hand or worktop blender is a must if you are a soup lover because most of the veg casserole recipes can be turned into soup the addition of lentals is a must in my book.

Hi, Thanks for the curry recipe, I love curry and will quite often spend my syns on one, but its great to get recipes with less syns that I can make myself, I bet its cheaper too! I can't wait to see some more of your recipes on here. I have a slow cooker, so will be rooting that out of the cupboard again too.
Thanks, and good luck with SW!

Brilliant just what i need after 19 months boredom is setting in. Do you have any ideas for sauces that don't involve tomatoes, creme fraiche or yogurt ?
