    I though that I would start up my own thread with just red day recipes to try and help those who fancy a red day but are not sure what to have, so instead of posting loads of individual recipes, I will post them all on this thread.

    I will take pics of each dish as and when I cook them!

    To start off we have:-

    Slow Cooked Creole Chicken Stew

    4 skinless, boneless chicken breast fillets
    salt and pepper to taste
    Cajun seasoning to taste
    1 (400g) tin chopped tomatoes
    1 stalk celery, diced
    1 green pepper, diced
    3 cloves garlic, minced
    1 onion, diced
    100g (4 oz) mushrooms, sliced
    1 fresh green chilli, seeded and chopped

    1. Place chicken breasts in slow cooker. Season with salt, pepper and Cajun seasoning to taste. Stir in tomatoes, celery, green pepper, garlic, onion, mushrooms and green chilli.
    2. If you have a slow cooker, cook on Low for 10 to 12 hours, or on High for 5 to 6 hours, alterntively, cook at 180 degrees for approx 1.5 hrs.
    Serves 4 and Syn free on Red

    No need to be sorry x

    I think all the recipes we can get the better. I know that a lot of slimmers have people over for dinner and are not sure what to cook. Hopefully this will give them some ideas!

    Steak and Mushroom Pie

    4.5 syns per serving on original (opps)
    Serves 4

    1 med onion, sliced
    1 level tbsp cornflour
    2 bay leaves
    salt and pepper
    284ml/1/2pt stock made from beef bovril
    227g/8oz closed cup mushrooms
    3 x 28g/1oz sheets filo pastry
    1 med egg, beaten

    Place the onion in a pan. Toss the steak in the cornflour and add it to the pan with the bay leaves and seasoning. Add the stock and about 142ml/1/4pt of water to just cover the beef. Bring to the boil, cover and simmer for 1.5hrs until the beef is tender. Cool and then discard the bay leaves.

    Preheat the oven to 220 degrees/Gas 7. Quater the mushrooms and place in a 2 pint dish. Add the beef mixture using a slotted spoon, and pour over about 198ml/7floz of the cooking liquid to come halfway up the dish. The meat will come to the top but once the mushrooms cook down, the level will sink.

    Brush each sheet of pastry with egg, lightly scrunch up and place on top of the meat, pulling the sheets out to make sure all of the meat is covered. Brush generously with the beaten egg and bake for 20 mins. Lower the heat to 180 degrees/Gas 4 and continue to cook for a further 20 mins.

    You can also make this is 4 indivdual pie dishes.

    Thanks Spaceangel they look fab :):):)

    I posted this one on the recipespage but thought I copy it down here too


    Lamb (or chicken) Rogan Josh

    500g chicken or lamb diced. ( i used lamb shoulder)
    2 small or 1 large onion
    1 red pepper
    1 tin tomatoes
    passata/tomato puree
    1 stock cube or chicken bovril
    1/2 teaspoon whole coriander seeds
    1/2 teaspoon whole cumin
    1teaspoon hot curry powder
    1-2 tablespoon fresh coriander
    squeeze of lemon juice


    Slice the onion, deseed and chop the peppers.

    Spray some frylight on a pan and cook the onions til soft, add the spices and cook for a couple of minutes and the pepper and cook until soft.

    Add the meat and brown. Make up the stock with boiling water to about 1/2 pint or a bit more so it covers the meat and bring to the boil.

    Add the tomatoes, tablespoon of purée and mix together and turn down to simmer for about 25-30 minutes until sauce thickened and meat tender.If you have any fresh tomatoes around that need using up you can add them too, take the skins off when they get soft.

    Add a handful of coriander leaving some back for garnish and cook for about 5 mins.

    Serve with the remainder of coriander on top with a squeeze of lemon.

    Serves 2 (generously)if on a red day and no rice and 4 if having rice and using the meat as an HEB.

    Syns about 1.5 for the whole thing 0.5 if using the bovril. __________________
