    Some Core Receipes..............

    as you know this coming week is my last on Core (for the time being) as I am going back to points. Thought it might be helpful to those Corers out there to post some Core receipes for you to try.

    BUTTERNUT SQUASH SOUP

    For pointers - 1/2 point per person

    1 medium butternut squash
    1 medium onion, chopped
    2 cloves garlic
    6 cups vegetable stock (or reduced-sodium broth)
    1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
    1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
    1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
    Salt and pepper to taste
    Low Fat Plain yogurt (1 tablespoon per person) and chopped parsley, for garnish
    To prepare the squash: Peel the squash with a vegetable peeler and trim each end. Cut the squash in half lengthwise and scoop out the seeds. Place squash flat side down on cutting board and cut each half lengthwise. Cut the quarters crosswise to make 2-inch cubes.
    Put the squash and the remaining ingredients (except garnishes) in a large pot and bring to a boil over high heat. Stir briefly, reduce heat to medium low and simmer for 20 minutes, until the squash is just cooked through.
    Puree the soup using a blender or food processor in four batches, using equal parts solids and liquid to help make a smooth puree. (Caution! Hot liquids create steam which will blow the top off the blender! Be sure to securely hold blender lid down!) Pour each batch of pureed soup into a large serving bowl or medium saucepan if not serving right away. Adjust seasonings.


    To serve ladle soup into bowls and garnish each bowl with a dollop of yogurt and a sprinkling of parsley.

    Serves 4.

    No problem, Ive got them from all over the place, WW website, Oldchem website, WW cookery books, I search a lot on the internet as I really love cooking and like to try new receipes every week. Still have a few more to post for you and once I go back onto points I will still post receipes and if the are Core friendly I will mark as so.

    Don't really want to go back to points, but think my leader might be right that its the amount of food I am eating and points is the best way to portion control, think I will definitely go back to Core for maintenance.

    Enjoy............

    Lydia, these all sound fab! Thank you so much - I hardly know where to start.

    Quorn tikka salad probably will be first on my list.

    That sounds lovely and a nice variation on shepherds pie. I'd have it with baked beans :p

    Only the chickpeas have points, so it's 3 points for the whole thing.

    Hiya

    I would really appreciate it if someone has the recipe for Kidney Bean Pie. I believe it's quite an old WW recipe but my workmate keeps going on about it (she's lost the recipe) so much that I really have to try it!!

    Thanks xx

    Warning though - if you put hot soup in a blender it makes the top come off and hot soup goes everywhere so either let it cool off first and then blend it and warm it up again or use a stick blender.

    Oh and make sure all your casserole veg is 0 point.

    Great guide though :D
