I’ve heard a lot about these Heck Sausages over the past few weeks so was over the moon today to discover that the Tesco nearest me stocks them. I’ve wanted to do chicken meatballs for a while but haven’t been able to get my hands on any chicken mince so I thought these sausages (out of their skins) would be the perfect replacement.
I love fish and when I spotted this little recipe in the Hairy Bikers ‘Eat for Life’ Cookbook, I knew I would have to give it a whirl. The recipe didn’t really suggest any accompaniments that I fancied so I put together some of my own. These, coupled with only a few tweaks to the original recipe made for the most amazing dish. You would never think that this was a healthy ‘diet’ recipe. Amazing!
One of my favourite accompaniments to any burger or BBQ recipe is a lovely creamy coleslaw. Not wanting to buy the high calorie supermarket version, I decided to create my own low calorie version which I have to say is absolutely delicious. My OH couldn’t really tell much of a difference between shop bought and this!
Serves 8 = 0pp each or serves 4 = 1pp each
Half a large cabbage, finely shredded
1 or 2 carrots, peeled and finely sliced
1 large red onion, finely sliced
1 tbsp white wine vinegar
2 tsp white wine vinegar
6 tbsp extra light mayonnaise
1 tsp Dijon mustard
½ tsp wholegrain mustard
Salt and Pepper
Pop all the vegetables in a large bowl, top with 1 tbsp white wine vinegar and combine.
In a smaller bowl mix all the dressing ingredients, loosen with a little drop of cold water (this will look odd at first but keep mixing and it combines nicely) and season well.
Tip dressing over the vegetables, combine well and taste to see if it needs more seasoning.
I’ve been waiting to give the whole cauliflower trend a run for its money for a while now and after experimenting with cauliflower rice, I though it was about time I moved onto something that felt more indulgent.
Chimichurri steak is one of my favourite dishes to eat when I’m out so it’s been on my list of things to make for a while. Tonight, needing a meat fix, I decided to give it a whirl and it the result was delicious. The whole meal is lovely and light and summery with some delicious flavours and textures.
I ADORE avocado. I just can’t get enough of it but it is quite pointy. As a result, I’m always trying to find new ways to include it within my meals so that I can both enjoy it but keep the points low. This recipe is an ideal was to do this. By scooping out some of the avocado to make room for the egg you reduce the points by another half. I reserved the avocado I scooped out and have kept it for tomorrow’s salad!
