    Hi Skinny.... I love green days too..

    One of my favourite dishes is veggi chilli and rice.

    I basically chuck everything into a wok (courgette, peppers, mushrooms, chopped cooked potato, kidney beans, butter beans) cook it in the pan and add some chilli powder (or fresh chopped chilli). I then add in a tin of canned chopped tomatoes and leave it to bubble for half an hour.

    It's great to freeze, but I normally eat it straight away with loads of brown rice and if it's really spicey - some fat free natural yogurt on the top too.

    Will have a think and post some more later x

    I always love having a Potato, Bean and Cheese Melt. Basically do syn free chips (Par-Boil for about 10mins, drain and leave to cool for abit. Spray baking tray with Fry Light, place pots on tray and spray those again, put in hot oven for about 25mins)
    If doing a melt, I'll take the pots out just as they are browning, put into a ovenproof dish, cover with beans and cheese HEA, pop back in the oven until the cheese has browned and enjoy!
    You can always add spices to the pots to create different tastes or add some Cooked Quorn Sausages in chunks before you put the cheese on.

    This is free on a green day:

    [​IMG]
    Skillet 'pizza'

    The potato and egg base makes this a really filling snack. We've topped the pizza with healthy cherry tomatoes, but you could use chopped mushrooms, peppers or onions.

    Serves 4
    Preparation time: 10 minutes
    Cooking time: 15 minutes, approx

    Fry Light oil
    800g (1 3/4lb) potatoes, peeled, boiled (for 6-7 minutes) and grated
    1 small egg, lightly beaten
    For the topping
    200g (7oz) cherry tomatoes, halved or quartered
    3 garlic cloves, peeled and crushed
    Small handful chopped rocket leaves


    1. Spray a 22cm (8½in) non-stick skillet or frying pan with Fry Light. In a bowl, mix together the grated potatoes and egg. Season generously and spoon this mixture into the prepared skillet or frying pan, pressing down carefully with the back of a metal spoon to make a flat base.
    2. Place the skillet or frying pan over a medium heat and cook the 'pizza' base for 8-10 minutes.
    3. Meanwhile, preheat the grill to medium-hot. Mix together the cherry tomatoes and garlic in a bowl, crushing them lightly with a fork. Spoon onto the top of the potato mixture and place under the grill for 3-4 minutes or until bubbling and hot. Remove from the grill, scatter over the rocket leaves and serve straight from the pan.

    I love the creamy pasta bake from the SW comfort food recipe book - free on green :)

    Cut up some veggies and chuck them into a roasting tin - I use onion, mushrooms, courgette and aubergines, crush a few cloves of garlic and sprinkle them over the veg. Spray with Fry Light. Roast for 15-20 mins, gas mark 6.

    Whilst that's cooking, boil up a load of pasta.
    When the pasta and veg are done, put the veg in an oven proof dish, mix a load of very low fat fromage frais with the pasta, and spoon it over the top of the veg. Bung it in the oven for about twenty to twenty five mins, I think gas mark 6.

    I had the leftovers for lunch at work, made everyone jealous about what I could eat on my diet :)

    Also, if you can't be bothered with spending a lot of time cooking, I boil a load of pasta, cauliflower, broccoli and sweetcorn and mix it with very low fat fromage frais. You can use one of your healthy A's and chuck some chopped up babybels in too.
