Courgette Pizza – 9sp 

Given the popularity of the classic low carb cauliflower base pizza alongside my love for all things courgette, I decided to try and covert my regular cauliflower pizza recipe into a courgette based pizza. The challenge was easier said than done but, after a few tries, I am happy to report I have finally perfected it. The texture is a little less firm that the cauliflower version however the taste is even better. I served this with a large side salad to keep it nice and fresh.

BBQ Pulled Chicken Burgers with Sweet Potato Fries – 9sp

As soon as I tasted how good this BBQ sauce was in my BBQ chicken Quesadilla recipe, I knew it would also go perfectly in a burger, especially in one of Aldi’s amazing Brioche Burger buns which are only 5sp each!! Sweet Potato chips are the perfect accompaniment to this recipe to and add a real pub grub feel. If you fancy reducing the points further you could make BNS fries instead of sweet potato. This would make the dish 6sp per person.

Baked Cod in a Chorizo Lime Crust with Crushed New Potatoes and Balsamic Roasted Tomatoes – 9sp

You would never think that this was a healthy ‘diet’ recipe. Amazing!

Chicken Katsu

I’ve seen katsu curry on the menu a few times at our local Japanese but it’s known for being rather high in points. Having been craving it for a while, this week I thought I would see if I rustle up a low point version and the result was delicious! I served this with 50g of rice per person and lots of green salad leaves. The chicken katsu itself if 5sp so you can add as much rice as you require, just be sure to add the points.

Jerk Chicken Stew with Rice and Peas – 9sp

I’ve wanted to try something with a bit of jerk seasoning in for a while but I just haven’t had the time to make the marinade from scratch! I came across Schwarz’ seasoning last time I was at the supermarket so I thought I would see if I could create something fast but different with it in the meantime. Don’t get me wrong, this is by no means an ‘authentic’ Jamaican jerk recipe but it’s a nice alternative when you just fancy a taste of something new.
