There's a recipe folder where I'm sure you'll find some ideas or you can ask for specific recipes. Alternatively visit the bbc good food website for lots of recipes that can be made SW friendly.


Strutting her stuff
If you go back to the main Slimming World page and then go to the top of the screen - above the list of the threads and the sticky threads you'll find a number of sub-forums - diaries, syn values, eating out and recipes. There is a search function towards the top right hand side where you can search for any mentions of soup.

Hope that helps. x

You can get red lentils , very cheaply, near to the stock cubes usually, there are also green ones, and my favourite lentilles verts which are the same as puy lentils. Try split peas too (yellow or green) and use them the same way. I usually use 4oz for 2 of us, use 2 stock cubes, onion carrot celery sometimes green beans, you can spice it up if you want. I have a pressure cooker so red lentil soup is ready in 8 mins, I suppose it will take about 25-30 in a saucepan. Split peas take 20 mins so probably 45 mins on the stove.
Just be aware that you will be very windy after them!
red lentils are lovely!! I would weigh them before adding them to soups or casseroles, not because you have to, but because they don't look much when you add them but soon swell up when cooking!!

Puy lentils are great for salads or as a side dish as they start quite firm after cooking unlike red ones which go all nice and soft!
What do puy lentils taste of? I keep seeing them in recipes and on telly etc but they just look a disgusting colour and put me off. I love the red etc lentils in soups its just these puy lentils look a bit strange to me.
They taste quite nutty. I love them, I guess they are a bit of an aquired taste but I cook them then add them to sauted onions, garlic and mushrooms and they make a gorgeous side dish.

Very different to red lentils though!

Do you mean just doing mash? It tells you not to do them in a food processor as it makes them gluey. I do them in the kenwood with the K beater, tho I was looking at a potato ricer in Lakeland.
