Balsamic Roasted Tomato and Feta Courgetti -4sp

I love spiralized vegetables. What can be more satisfying than getting to eat a whole plate full of what feels like spaghetti for 0 smart points! Having wanted to have a play with my new OXO handheld spiralizer this week, I decided it was time for a new recipe and the result was amazing. Its both light and filling, cheesy and fresh. It’s the perfect lunch or light evening meal if you have had an over indulgent day. If you want to reduce the points further you can use 75g of feta instead of 100g. This will take the points down to 3 per person. Since the feta and tomatoes are the bulk of the flavour in the dish however, I would go with 100g!

Twisted Eggs Benedict – 4sp

I adore brunch. It has fast become my favourite meal of the weekend. Whether I make it in the house or we eat out, I love the variety of foods and flavours you get at this unique meal time. This weekend I visited one of my favourite brunch cafe’s and indulged myself in their self styled ‘bacon and eggs’. Granary toast, delicious bacon, poached egg, avocado, pesto dressing and hollandaise sauce, it was absolute heaven! However as nice as it was, I knew I couldn’t be indulging like this every weekend so I decided to make my own low propoint version of the dish.

Spinach, Mozzarella and Sun Dried Tomato Stuffed Chicken – 4sp

Chicken breasts are always a great thing to keep in the freezer. They are so versatile, there are a million things to do with them but one of my favourites is to stuff them with whatever is in my fridge. This recipe is a great one as the ingredients are things I almost always have in. The flavours in the chicken are delicious and the light, creamy sauce really add a luxury feeling to the dish. I serve this with asparagus and 3sp of either mashed potato or oven roast potatoes for a total of 13pp.
