Nasi Goreng literally translates as ‘fried rice’ in Indonesia. This delightful dish is a great option if you are looking for something really straight forward, quick and tasty. I’ve just used a shop bought paste here as it’s not too many points and is a lovely flavour. I haven’t added any extra chilli as it already has a nice kick but you can always add some crushed chillies at the end if you like things really hot. I will also be posting a recipe with my own paste but since lots of you are asking for this recipe to make this week, I thought I best not keep you all waiting! I got my paste in Tesco but I know lots of other supermarkets do their own version too.
Meatballs are one of my favourite go to quick and easy dinners as they take hardly any preparation and can be ready in under 15 minutes. These meatballs in particular are delicious with my other favourite at the moment, 0sp Butternut Squash Noodles, or Boodles as Sainsbury’s like to call them. They made for a lovely filling dish but allow you to keep the smart points for the whole meal nice and low.
A good tuna steak is a real treat but not something we often eat in the house so this week, after having a real craving for it, I decided to pull together a new recipe which used this lovely fish with a few other fresh tasting flavours.
My chicken and chorizo jambalaya is one of my most popular recipes and I’m also a big fan so last week, when I was thinking of ways to jazz up my jambalaya, this idea hit me and I knew I had to give it a go. The result was delicious, filling and yet packed with flavour, you would never believe that the bowl food of food that I ate at the end was only 6sp. Even better, it now means I have two delicious recipes for jambalaya…winner!
My hubby is a massive fan of all things lamb and all things spicy so tonight I decided the come up with a new recipe which combined both. The result was delicious. As you can see from the picture, the dish is bursting with colour and as a result, flavour. The tagine itself is only 6sp per person and I served this with a drizzle of fat free Greek yoghurt (0sp each) and a pitta for an extra 4sp per person. This meant the whole dish was 10sp and it was lovely and filling. If you have a very hungry other half you could even serve this with a little rice but in my view, the addition of chickpeas and a pitta are filling enough!
The ingredient list might look lengthy but most of the ingredients are store cupboard essentials. Plus the actual method is very quick and easy indeed!
Fish is a great option for an evening meal as not only is it packed with flavour and goodness, but it is so low in points – especially now fish is 0sp! After craving something fishy for tea last week, I put together this recipe using a lot of ingredients that I already had in my fridge and the result was delicious. Both light and summery yet filling and satisfying. Best of all, the whole dish can be ready inside 20 minutes!
For me, there is nothing better than coming home after a long day and tucking in to a nice juicy burger. One of my favourite things about Weight Watchers is that you can do just that and not have to feel guilty in the slightest!
I’m often asked for low propoint but impressive starter dishes for the Weight Watchers out there trying to cook a three course meal. I’ve come up with loads of different options for this but this has to be one of my favourites. Who doesn’t love a prawn cocktail!! But usually it is lathered with a creamy dressing and some tiddly prawns and not much else.
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.
This was the lovely starter that I made on my meat free Good Friday three course meal challenge. It’s something that I’ve had a few times in Italian restaurants and it’s always really satisfying. Making a light version seemed like a great way to start off my meat free 3 course meal however if you did fancy a bit of meat, pop a slice of prosciutto on top of the pesto.
