Free Syn Lentil Soup

I lived on this soup last time I did SW, it's gorgeous and really thick and filling, completely syn free too!

The recipe below makes about 3-4 bowlfuls, so adjust the amounts accordingly for less BUT you can freeze this soup too which is great for a quick snack or dinner.

You will need a hand blender.

Ingredients
4 medium sized potatoes (I use maris piper)
3-4 carrots
1 onion
red lentils
4-5 vegetable oxos
Seasoning to taste

* Using your large saucepan (biggest of the set, normally about 3-4L capacity)

* Sprinkle your red lentils into the saucepan. You want to cover the bottom of the saucepan with a layer of lentils so you just cover thebottom of the pan. Any more than this will turn the soup to stodge.

* Peel and chop your potato, carrot and onion.

* Crumble your stock cubes into the pan.

* Fill the pan with cold water.

* Bring to the boil. Once boiling turn down the heat to simmer for about 40 mins...until the potato and carrot are very soft.

* Stir regulary or it will stick to the bottom of the pan.

* Once cooked remove from the heat and using your hand blender, blend until smooth. The consistancy will still be quite thick due to the potatoes and lentils but should be lump free.

Add salt and ground black pepper to taste.

Reeeeallly FIT soup, SO much nicer than tinned and completely syn free! :D

Quorn Sausage Hotpot

Serves 2-3
Syns - 5 syns for whole dish, approx 2 syns per serving.

For syn free, boil up some red lentils so they're soft instead of using the soup.

You can also use other brands of lentil soup but adjust syns accordingly, for example Heniz lentil soup is 8 syns per 400g tin and is a bit tastier.

You will need a medium to large casserole dish.

Ingredients

5 veg oxos
1 400g tin baked beans
5 potatoes - peeled and thinly sliced
4 Quorn sausages (two per person)
2 Carrots peeled and thinly sliced
1 tin Weightwatchers carrot & lentil soup (4.5 syns)
1 onion - sliced and chopped
1 heaped teaspoon marmite
1 tbsp tomato puree (0.5 syns) (optional)

Method

Firsly put your chosen amount of quorn sausage into the microwave and cook for about 2-3 mins if they're frozen, turning frequently until soft.
Chop up the soft quorn sausage into slices and put to one side.
You don't need to microwave defrosted or chilled sausages.

You can use peeled/sliced potatoes and carrots and put them straight in or you can soften them in the microwave for a few mins first. If you don't soften it will take longer to cook.

Into the casserole dish throw the potatoes, carrots, chopped onion and sliced sausage.

In a big jug mix the soup and the tin of beans together and pour over the veg and sausage.

Into the empty jug crumble the stock cubes and fill up to about 1.5 pints with boiling water, add the marmite and tomato puree and stir.

Pour this into the casserole dish until the veg/sausage is covered with stock. Add more water to cover if needed.

Bake in the oven Gas mark 5-6 until the potatoes are soft, normally 2-3 hours.

You can then season and serve with some veg.

It's reeeeeally nice and will be my tea for tonight :D

Baked Bean & Quorn Curry

Serves 4 (approx 0.5 syns per serving)

Ingredients

5 medium potatoes peeled and cubed
½ bag of quorn pieces
1 large onion finely chopped
½ tsp of cumin
½ tsp of mild chilli powder
4 tbsp mild curry powder
1 tsp turmeric powder
2.5 tbsp tomato puree (2 syns)
1.25 pints of veg stock made with 3 vegetable oxos.
400g tin of heinz baked beans

Firstly peel and cube your potatoes and par boil them. I parboil mine using the microwave by putting them in a big bowl with a little water at the bottom, covering with clingfilm and cooking for 8mins on a cat D microwave, stirring half way through.

Defrost your quorn pieces before hand or in the microwave.

Using your big saucepan add the chopped onions and 1.25 pints of veg stock, bring to the boil.
Add your cumin, turmeric, curry powder, chilli powder and tomato puree and stir.

Add your softened potato, the quorn pieces and the tin of beans and bring to the boil again.

Once bubbling turn down and simmer until potatoes and onions are very soft. (normally about 30-40 mins).

I leave mine to stand for a couple of hours and reheat to serve, seems to taste better and the "sauce" is a bit thicker.

Serve with basmati rice.

You can of course add other veg to the pot.

Syn Free Spanish Omelette

Tonights dinner, thought I'd share.

Serves - 2-4 (depending on portion size served)
Syn free

You will need a large, deep frying pan.

Ingredients

5-6 eggs
Splash milk
84g low/half fat cheddar cheese (x2 HExA)
half tin of chopped tomatoes, drained
half tin of marrowfat peas, drained
2 medium potatoes, peeled and thinly sliced
Salt & pepper

(You can replace the toms and peas with fresh if you prefer)

Method

Firstly, peel and thinly slice the potatoes. Place in a microwavable bowl with a little water at the bottom, loosely cover with cling film and "parboil" in the microwave until quite soft. Normally 6-7 mins or so (CatD)

Whisk together the eggs, a splash of milk, salt and pepper in a large jug.

Add to the jug the tomatoes, cheese, peas and potatoes so that all the ingredients are covered in the egg mixure.

Heat the frying pan and spray with a liberal amount of frylight.

Pour in mixture.

Cook on a medium flame until the bottom is browning then transfer to a hot grill. Obviously leave the handle sticking out so it doesn't get too hot or melt if plastic.

Once the top has set and goes brown, remove from the heat and check the middle has set inside.

Serve with whatever you fancy. If you have half the omelette you will use 1 HExA.

Slow Cooker - Quorn Sweet & Sour

I made this today for my dinner and it was gorgeous, so thought I would share.

I made it in a slow cooker.

Serves 3-4

Ingredients

175ml carton of pasatta
10 tbsp sweetener (I used canderel)
7-8 tablespoons of malt vinegar
1 red pepper - sliced thinly
1 orange pepper - sliced thinly
1 teaspoon garlic granules
1 large onion - chopped or sliced
3/4 pint veg stock made with 2 veg oxos
1/3 of a fresh pineapple
3/4 bag quorn chicken style pieces

Method

Into your slow cooker place the pasatta, vinegar, sweetener, garlic granules and stock. Stir to mix thoroughly.

Add in sliced red and orange peppers and onion.

You can add the pineapple at this stage but will have to syn it and I don't know how many syns it would be...but what I did was just add it at the end on top of my sauce and mix it in, so it's not cooked but warmed by the sauce and should be syn free.

Cook on low for about 3 hours then turn up to high for an hour or two.

After 4-5 hours add in your Quorn pieces. Can add them in frozen and cook on high for another hour or two.

Serve with rice and soy sauce.
