    The easiest recipe I do is for chilli although I do my own thing rather than follow any recipe. I don't know whether it's of interest but I'll type it anyway.

    I dry fry extra lean mince then, once cooked, put it in a saucepan along with 1 can of chilli beans, 1 can chopped tomatoes, a chopped carrot, chopped courgettes, an onion, handful of mushrooms, some chopped baby sweetcorn and chilli powder to taste. I leave it on the stove for an hour gentle cooking. Serve with brown rice.

    As you can see I pack it with veg to build up the superfree 1/3 on a plate for easy extra days.

    Hope this is of interest.

    How about a burger. Mince, Grated onion, splash lea perins, chopped herbs. Shape into a pattie and grill or place on health grill. Serve with lots of salad and HXB roll.
    Easy Rice Pud...... 1/2 cup pudding rice, 1 cup water, place in pan with the lid on. Turn heat to low and leave for 15 min. Remove from heat and stir in sweetner to taste, add 1 yoghurt and serve with fruit for a free breakfast or pud.
    Use up left over new potatoes by slicing up and placing on a baking tray. Spray with frylight and seasoning. Place in hot oven until brown.
    Serve with fried egg and beans. Or use as a nibble with a dish of soup.
    Hope this helps.

    In the SW mags they clearly state that healthy extras are incorporated into the menus in mag, so therefore the primula will need to be synned or used as a HEa :)
    And if it was in an advert it will have said at the back on the page that details the syns of all the foods or maybe in the actual advert!!
    As there is no way a recipe containing an entire tube of cheese would be free!!!!

    I find it quite amusing that you've clearly edited the original post after I'd replied!! And funnily enough as I said, it would have included somewhere that the cheese would have been a HEa!!!! Thanks :)
