If you have a delicious, low propoint meal, share it here!
A quick lunch:
3 dark rye ryvitas (3), spread with 25g of very low fat philadelphia (1), and topped with 60 of smoked salmon (2) = 6
BAKED COD WITH LEMON BUTTER SAUCE, 29 pp whole recipe, serves 4 (7pp per serving)
Very quick and uber simple meal and the addition of a lemon butter sauce transforms it from bland baked cod to something worth eating. Serve with new potatoes and vegetables / salad
Ingredients for 4:
800g of cod fillet (18pp)
50g butter (10pp)
1 chicken stock cube (1pp)
Juice of half a lemon (0pp)
Preheat oven to 200 degrees centigrade and when warm placed cod fillets in oven proof dish and bake for circa 15-20 minutes until cooked through. For lemon butter sauce, dissolve 1 chicken stock cube in 70ml of boiling water, add the juice of half a lemon and 50g of butter. 5 minutes before the cod is due to come out of oven, heat the lemon butter sauce ingredients over a low flame. Only simmer - do not boil, or ingredients seperate. Pour lemon butter sauce over cod fillets and serve.
130 g salmon fillet
1 tbs pesto
top salmon with pesto, wrap in foil cook in oven for 22 minutes on 200 celsius.
7 points, and very tasty.
There are not my recipes but are the ones I'd cut and paste from the thread recently to have in one place. Thought I would paste here to save their owners re-typing. Apologies for not crediting them to their rightful owner but didn't make a note!!
200g cooked green lentils (6pp)
1 medium bns chopped into roughly 1 inch cubes
ditto for 1 large aubergine
1 roughly chopped red onion
1 chopped clove of garlic
seasoning (I used a morroccan spice mill, but imagine tsp of cumin would be good too. It would still be tasty without spices tho)
120g light halloumi cheese (7pp)
Spray roasting tin and veg with frylight
Roast the bns/aubergine and onion on a lowish temp (150 degrees) for about 40 mins.
turn the veg a couple of times, respraying with frylight when you do so.
Add the chopped garlic for last 10 mins.
When veg is soft combine in a baking dish with the lentils and small amount of stock (1/2 tbsps)
Slice the halloumi cheese and cover the veg with it.
pop it under the grill for about 10 minutes or until cheese starts to brown.
Really really good with the ww mini naan breads (3pp and you can get packs of 4 from poundland). Fat free Greek yoghurt would be nice with it too.
Aubergine & Lentil recipe
1 onion, chopped
2 garlic cloves, crushed
2 tbsp curry powder
1 aubergine, diced
175g dried split red lentils
600ml veg stock
100ml low-fat coconut milk
2tbsp fresh coriander, chopped
Spray pan with LF cooking spray / oil & fry onion & garlic gently till softened but not brown. Stir in curry powder & fry for another minute. Add aubergine, salt & lentils & stir to coat. Add stock, bring to boil & simmer uncovered for 30-35 minutes, stirring occasionally to stop sticking. Lentils should be tender and mushy, if not, boil rapidly for few minutes. Stir in coconut milk & coriander & serve.
I don't follow to the letter: last night I added mustard seeds & onion seeds after frying onion & garlic, and used Patak's curry paste not powder. Also added chopped chilli as I like a kick to my curries! I find I have to add more water, and I prefer my lentils with a bit of bite still. Had it with a Sharwoods mini-naan (3PP) and used full-fat coconut milk, which made it 6PP per serving. Got leftovers for lunch today, yum yum!
Boil linguini (50g each)
Chuck in mange tout for last 4 mins
Drain, keep 60 ml of the water
Stir in bag of king prawns (i used 250 gm cooked king prawns for 2)
Stir in 3/4 tub sweet chilly light philly and the 60ml water
Add S+P and chilli flakes (if you like it hot)
Pasta in creamy mushroom and leek sauce
150g mushrooms sliced
2-3 leeks sliced
half a red onion diced
200g extra light philly
veg stock (about a pint)
put all the veg in a big saucepan, add the stock, bring to boil then simmer for 20 mins or so to reduce and intensify the flavour.
Stir in the philly.
