Sri Lankan Lentil Dhal – 1sp

Before we went to Sri Lanka I couldn’t have imagined eating curry every day and still enjoying it. Whilst I love a good curry, it’s not something I would usually want on repeat every day.

The curries I tried in Sri Lanka completely changed my opinion. There, curry is something completely different. Less saucy and smaller portions, I was blown away with the vast selection and varieties of curries to choose from, so much so that I ended up having it nearly every night.

Butternut Squash Falafel – only 1sp

Falafel is something that me and a few of my friends at work absolutely love but usually they are rather high in points so you end up with a measly lonely falafel and absolutely no satisfaction. Because of this I decided today to try adapt a recipe (original here) into a low point falafel recipe that would taste just as good and the result was amazing! This falafel can be served in a wrap with salad and extras (serving suggestions below and recipe here) or as part of a normal salad with lots of vegetables and leaves. It would also be great with my harissa roasted vegetable salad!

Onion Bhaji’s – 0sp

My lovely auntie informed me of this amazing recipe from the Facebook page recipe binder yesterday and whilst I usually like to create or adapt recipes (as you will see from all my other posts haha) this one was rather delicious as it was. I only made a few of my own amendments and this was mostly during the cooking and portioning process.

It was so quick to make, so tasty and for so little points! My OH really didn’t believe that they were WW friendly. Make sure your oven is hot when you pop your bhajis in as you don’t want them to go soggy. To store pop into a box on top of some strong kitchen roll (to soak up any excess liquid created when cooling). According to the recipe builder 1 bjahi is 1sp, 2 bhajis is 1sp, 4 is 2sp and 8 is 4sp.

Caramelised and Red Onion Goat’s Cheese Pizza – 12sp

I love a good pizza and one of my favourite toppings is a lovely little bit of goat’s cheese so when I found out about the ‘hole in the middle’ pizza at Pizza Express for only 14pp I was delighted.  Having finished however I was left a little disappointed as the ‘hole’ was just that bit too big and the toppings to0 sparse and I just didn’t feel full enough to give it 14 of my daily points. Looking at it however, made me realise that it would most likely be rather easy to make at home for less points, without a hole and more flavour so I gave it a whirl and it really was!
