    These have all been pointed, but I think the majority of them are free on the Core Plan. All points values are per serving. Enjoy!


    Versatile Curry Sauce - bit like chip shop curry!

    Versatile Curry Sauce
    Points Value per serving 0.5
    Serves 4

    Can have with chicken, beef, prawns, boiled rice or oven chips - add on the associated points of course!

    • 200 g potato(es)
    • 2 tablespoon curry powder
    • 10 spray low-fat cooking spray
    • 2 large onion(s)
    • 2 clove garlic
    • 2 teaspoon ginger
    • 1 portion stock cube
    • 3/4 pint water

    Spray a non stick saucepan with the cooking spray and add one roughly chopped onion, the crushed garlic, grated ginger, peeled and chopped potatoes, curry powder and fry gently for a few minutes. Pour over the water and add the stock cube and simmer until the potato is cooked. Blend in a liquidiser until smooth and keep warm (thin with a little water if it's really thick)

    Spray a non stick frying pan with the cooking spray and add the remaining onion and fry over a high heat until browned. Pour over the curry sauce and bring back to a simmer for a couple of minutes.

    Poach the ckicken breast in stock (flavoured with chinese spices if you like) until tender, leave to cool slightly and shred using 2 forks.
    Mix the shredded chicken with the honey, crushed garlic and the hoi sin sauce and fry in a non-stick frying pan in the Fry Light, over a medium heat until nice and sticky and beginning to go a bit crispy round the edges. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
    Serve as you would for Peking Duck, with shredded spring onion, cucumber and plum sauce, and using large soft round lettuce leaves instead of Chinese pancakes.

    Hot and Sour Soup

    POINTS® Value: 0.5
    Servings: 4
    • 2 portion Knorr Chicken Stock Cubes
    • 1 1/2 pint water
    • 1 portion fresh red chilli(s)
    • 1 clove garlic
    • 5 portion spring onions
    • 1 small portion mushrooms
    • 2 tablespoon fresh coriander
    • 1 small egg(s)
    • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
    • 1 juice from 1/2 lime(s)
    • 1 zest of 1 lime(s)

    Put stock into a pan and bring the boil
    Add finely chopped chilli and garlic and simmer for a few minutes
    Finely slice the mushrooms and the spring onions
    Add the other ingredients to the stock except the mushrooms and onions, and simmer gently to reduce a little and allow the flavours to combine.
    Add the onions and mushrooms and simmer for a few more minutes.
    Beat the egg and add to the soup in a steady stream, stirring gently off the heat, the effect is to get 'ribbons' of egg in the soup.
    Stir in the finely chopped coriander and serve.
