    Hi everyone.
    Im going to be having BNS chips tomorrow for the first time. We have a tray for the oven which is completely mesh to make food more crispy and not greasy. Do you have to spray them with oil? If you do would someone please tell me which one is best from the two below please :)..

    Crisp 'n' dry spray vegetable oil
    or
    Frylight extra virgin olive oil spray.
    (both can be found on asda website.)

    Isn't frylight less points?!

    I'm bad, and to be honest don't point frylight, in my mid I probably use a total of 15cals worth for a whole meal, which can't possibly be a point!!

    :)

    Well I only heard about them yesterday myself so i haven't tried them yet. But essentially you peel and cut up a butternut squash into chips or wedge shap, but it on a tray in the oven for i think half an hour or if you have an actifry you could do them in there.

    The BNS chips are 0pp all you need to point is any oil you might use in the cooking of them

    I love BNS - it feels like it should be a pointed vegetable if you know what I mean? It's filling and tasty - I often roast it and mix through brown rice to bulk it out and it's yummy.

    I like doing the 'chips' too though haven't for a while - I shall though! I buy one most weeks lol.

    I love the stuff..... Would never have tried it before I joined WW. I roast one most days :). The chips are nice but peeling the thing is a nightmare... Lol

    Stick it in a moderate oven for 20 mins (whole) which softens the skin so u can just peel it off!! Squash inside isn't cooked so u can then cook it as u want as normal.

    Didn't know it was 0pp, happy days!!!
