Is there a Slimming World recipe thread?

If not, can we make one?

I have rejoined after several years off, I'm loving the Extra Easy plan!

Can we have a thread to review the recipes from the books and just a general recipe chat?


This evening we have spaghetti with all my veg in the fridge whizzed up with a tin of tomatoes, herbs a veggie stock cube and then heated through and served with some grilled chicken breasts on top.

I've done the Burger In a bowl, the Fish the chips and the Pea, Leek and Ham pasta this week from the Fakeaway book and I also have the family meals on a budget one.

I would be very interested in this too.

Well I can make a start by commenting on two of the SW recipes I have made.

Lasagne.....not terribly nice. The white sauce is replaced by natural yoghurt. It's not awful but not very tasty. I rarely make lasagne so I'm not a diehard fan of it.

Chicken tikka....I must have made this incorrectly as it was nothing like real chicken tikka. You use fromage frais to make the sauce. Was not nice at all. Think the sauce might have curdled.

Apart from that, I haven't made any of their other recipes apart from SW chips/wedges/roast potatoes and they have been really nice but not sure if spraying oil on a potato and roasting it really counts as a recipe.

I did make the eton mess for a SW buffet. Didn't try it but went down well.

I made the Chickpea and Chilli patties from one of the quick cooking books. The kids loved them. I served with wedges and salad.

I'm keen to try one of the curries, I might do a Korma from the Fakeaways book at the weekend.

The bacon and butternut squash risotto is lovely. I use onion instead of leeks, ham stock and add 30g of parmesan (HEa) per person though.

We have a recipe for chilli and basil linguine that was given out at group. I didn't think I'd like it, but it's nice! It's just onion and garlic softened in fry light, add chilli flakes to taste and a tin of chopped tomatoes. Then add chopped fresh basil, pepper and a dollop of quark near the end. Stir into cooked linguine.

The risotto sounds lovely, I am a big butternut squash fan, I like it roasted with thyme and honey :)

Today I think I'm going to try one of the curries with rice, then tomorrow the kids want pizza so I'll be making that for 5 1/2 syns.

I've tried too many recipes to name but the best by far was the mac 'n' cheese, not what I would typically call mac 'n' cheese but still lovely, oh and the all day breakfast omelette is a family fav but does an omelette really count as a recipe Grin

I did the chicken tikka, it was lovely enough for me to have if for lunch and dinner! Blush

Stirfry yesterday and today we'll be having hotdogs, chips and salad .... What diet?! Grin

One of our favourites is the Jambalaya from the SW Extra Easy Express book.

Mac and cheese, meatballs and vegetable passata.

There are several SW recipe groups on Facebook.

I had the 12 speed soup today. Delicious and brilliant for weight loss.

I liked the cowboy hotpot from the budget book and have tried chicken and asparagus no pastry pie which was really nice and we regularly have smoked haddock, leek and pea risotto.

I always mess up the ones that use fat free yogurt for a sauce. Either that or I just don't like fat free yogurt.

Does the speed soup really work?

Do you eat it lunch and dinner, I've seen it mentioned but never know how you're meant to use it! I've seen the recipe, it looks like the ingredients for much wind Grin

Oh, I did the pizza! I didn't eat any though, the dough recipe they give you for 5 1/2 syns for a quarter is the tiniest portion ever, I made it, decided I wasn't wasting the syns and gave it to the kids before knocking up a chicken stir fry for myself.
