Fiery Beef Madras – 2sp

One of my OH’s conditions for me getting my beautiful puppy was that we would have ‘curry Sundays’ which to be fair, we have mostly stuck too (with the exception of last night!). Last week, in an effort to keep things interesting, I whipped together this lovely curry and I have to say, it may be my favourite curry creation yet. I cooked this on a low simmer for an hour so the sauce was lovely and rich and the beef lovely and soft and falling apart. If you don’t have time to do this however, just pop it on a higher heat for anywhere from 15 minutes.

Boxing Day Leftovers – Asian Turkey Salad – 2sp

Christmas is one of my favourite times of the year but for us Weight Watchers, the joy of the festive season often comes alongside a side helping of guilt at the food we may consume which we usually wouldn’t allow ourselves.

Having savvy ways to use up leftovers is not only way the perfect way to keep your portions under control on the big day, but it will also save you a lot of time and money at a manic (and frankly rather expensive) time!! The lovely Asian salad is one of my favourite ways to use up left over Christmas Day turkey. Its packed with flavour and lovely and light and healthy. Best of all, its only 2sp. The perfect Boxing Day lunch!

This fabulous recipe was featured in the December issue of Weight Watchers magazine so if you have a copy, you can find it in there too!

If you fancy making this lovely salad even more filling, you could also fry up some egg noodles and spilt between the bowls for an extra 5sp per person.

Turkey Stuffed Courgette Boats – 2sp

This recipe came about after defrosting a pack of turkey mince and deciding to use up some of the contents of my cupboards. After scratching my head for a few minutes I got a few bits and pieces out and thought, lets see how this goes. Boy was I impressed with the result. Not only is it a quick and easy dish to put together, but the flavours are delicious. Best of all one portion is only 2sp!!

Tuna and Red Onion Quiche – 2sp

I’m often asked for easy lunch recipes which don’t constitute soup or a salad so today I thought I would share one of my favs.  This basis of this quiche recipe is an old favourite in our house and my family have been making it for years. You can add almost anything to it you fancy and you end up with the most lovely, healthy and filling lunch from it. Depending on how I am using my points for the day I would have either a quarter of the quiche with a large side salad or half the quiche with a small side salad. You really can add anything you fancy to this. I’ve added mushrooms, spinach etc and it always comes out lovely!

Chorizo and Red Lentil Soup – 2sp

Now the weather has got a bit colder and I’m starting to think about investing in my yearly pair of ear muffs (I somehow manage to snap them at the end of every winter) I thought it was about time I whipped up my first soup of the autumn. This is a gorgeous soup recipe which tastes like a real treat but at only 2sp per portion its a bargain smart points wise, especially considering the gorgeous smells and taste that ooze out of it!
