    you work out points by doing this calculation;

    (kcals divided by 70) + (saturated fat divided by 4) = points value

    hope this helps. i know that quorn mince is 1.5 points per 100g, i use this alot! not sure about the kidney beans as not keen and i think theyre quite calorific hehe. the spices are free, unsure about the tomato puree xx

    Thanks both. WW give you such limited info on points values when you start that I've been living on ready meals so far - this is my first attempt at cooking from scratch (which SW promotes big time!). Ok, so the quorn is 9 in total and the kidney beans are 8 for a 500g tin so that's 17 for a massive pan so far. Had to use ketchup instead of puree as I didn't have any! Divide by 4 makes a large portion 4.5.

    Now for the rice :confused:
