Harissa Chicken with Cous Cous Salad – 7sp

I’m always trying to come up with new, quick and easy weekday and ‘on the go’ lunches using up the contents of my fridge. A few weeks ago, being once again in this dilemma, I threw together this recipe and was more than pleasantly surprised with the results. For only 7sp you get a lovely, filling dish packed with flavour and punch. It’s the perfect dish to whip up if you’ve got back on the wagon post Christmas/New year and want healthy and flavour all in one!

Tangy Harissa Lamb Meatball Tagine – 6sp

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!

Moroccan Meatballs – 13sp

Having some ‘normal’ healthy food between Christmas and New Year is something I always crave but, given the manic few days I’ve usually had, I can never be bothered to faff around too much. That’s why this recipe is a perfect one to whack out in the post Christmas/ pre New Year period. The meatballs themselves are the exact same meatballs I used in my Lamb Kofta Meatball Kebab recipe so if you made this and made extras, this one will be nice and easy to whip up! If you don’t have them pre made or can’t be bothered to rustle them up from scratch, feel free to use any pre made meatballs that you might get in the supermarket.

Harissa Roast Salmon with a Fruity Cous Cous Salad – 15sp

When presented with the idea of making a three course meatless meal on Good Friday, I knew I was going to have to get creative in the kitchen and after doing a little research I came across this lovely little recipe online. I made a few of my own amendments to make it both lower in propoints and to make sure it was packed full of flavour and the result was incredible. The smell of the dish was to die for a my sister, who has always been dubious about trying salmon, absolutely loved it.

Moroccan Stuffed Butternut Squash – 5sp

As you all no doubt know, we are blessed on Weight Watchers with the 0pp delight that is Butternut Squash. I’m a massive fan of it as a replacement for potatoes and even sweet potatoes so I’m always trying to find new ways to use it. Tonight, fancying something filling but low in points, I created this lovely delight which went down a storm. It tastes amazing and really is so filling and satisfying.

Harissa Roasted Vegetable Salad – Only 1sp

Apologies for the awful pictures but I realised half way through munching this that I had forgotten to take one! This was (half) of the lovely lunch I had today which was literally thrown together from the leftovers of last night’s dinner (Minted lamb chops with harissa roasted veg!) I always make extra roasted veg when I make this dinner (it would be rude not to as it’s virtually free of sp!!) just so that I can have this lovely salad the next day but if you are making if just for lunches then following the recipe below will make you a generous four portions! It’s so filling and satisfying and such a bargain at only 1sp, yes 1sp for the whole thing!
