    I'm discovering that simply filling is pushing me to the kitchen! I'm not gifted there (in fact I'm lucky I still have ten digits intact!) so thought we could share recipe ideas x

    Shepherds Pie

    Lean mince (with fat drained or extra lean)
    Potatoes
    Peas
    Carrots
    Onion
    Tsp butter 1pp
    Skimmed milk
    One of those shepherds pie mixes
    Gravy granules 1pp

    Peel and chop potatoes and stick on to boil until soft.
    Meanwhile, fry the mince off with onion until brown. Peel and chop carrots. Once the mince is browned, drain the fat off and make the packet mix up with 300ml cold water. Add carrots to mince and onion, add peas and poor over the mixture. Bring back to the boil.
    Mash potatoes with butter and a splash of skimmed milk.
    Transfer mince mix to an oven proof dish, top with potato and cook on 200f for around half an hour or until brown.
    Serve with gravy

    This was made as per the instructions on the packet mix and for the 50g packet, it's 1pp. I've not bothered to point it in my serving as it wouldn't count as 1pp. But you're welcome to if you want to.

    2pp for the whole recipe

    This is the first time I tried this way of doing shepherds pie - I usually use my Mums recipe :) If you want that, I'll post it too.

    I've got a stew recipe that I cook in my slow cooker if that's any good?

    I basically take the beef and sear it (not fully cook it, just sealing it if you like). Meanwhile, par boil some potatoes, carrot, peas, onion and mushrooms.

    Put it all in the slow cooker and fill with stock made with 2 beef oxo cubes dissolved in water (1pp) until it's nearly covered.

    I put mine on in the morning on a low heat, so when I get in, it's ready to serve :) we usually have dumplings made with Sainsburys packet mix, which work out to be 3pp each.

    With dumplings, I've pointed it as 4pp per serving. I do add gravy granules to the mixture if it needs to be thickened up, hence the 1pp for the stew mix

    Simply filling

    Correct me if im wrong but i think this recipie Will only be 1pp for the full lot and its huge ! Remember to stop when satisfied


    Im thinking its the baking powder that is 1 pp ?
    ForumRunner_20111026_130906.jpg

    Apple and cinnamon cake
    4 egg whites
    4 yolks
    1teaspoon of baking powder
    1teaspoon of vanilla essence
    Low fat fromage frais or quark
    Ground cinnamon
    Sweetner (add as much or less as you like )
    Grease proof paper and a baking tray

    Separate the egg whites and whisk into stiff peaks in a clean bowl (the slightest bit of grease Will effect the whites ) . In another bowl mix the egg yolks baking powder vanilla essence and Sweetner . Mix in half of the stiff egg white mixture into the bowl with the yolks etc in it . Next carefully mix in the remainder of the egg whites . Spead the mixture onto the greaseproof paper ( line your baking tray with it ) and pop in the oven at gas mark 4 until a slightly browned .
    Meanwhile chop up 2 apples into tiny pieces and add cinnamon to taste . You can now add the fromage frais / quark to the apples and mix it all up or you can layer it seperatly . Take the cake out of the oven and gently separate it from the greaseproof paper with a knife and turn it over . Now you can add your mixture on top and roll it up .
    I normally layer my apple and cinnamon mixture then add the fromage frais on top . Using quark gives it a thicker consistency but you would need to add more Sweetner to it .
