Speedy Tomatoey Italian Meatballs – 6sp

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.

Baked Cod with Ultimate Pesto Mash and Greens – 8sp

I love a good fish dish so I am always thinking of different ways to combine a light and low smart points fish dish with something that will fill up my hungry hubbie. This week, having had some sweet potatoes left to use up, I thought I would get some mash on the go. This mash is inspired by my lovely Loaded Sweet Potato Skins from a while back, with many of my favourite flavours rearing their heads once again, this time in mash form.

Chicken Tikka Jambalaya – 6sp

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!

Steamed Pork Buns (Char Sui Bao) – 5sp

I’ve had these lovely Chinese steamed buns so many times when I’ve eaten out and I’ve often wondered if I could make them Weight Watchers friendly. After craving them again this week I decided to give it a go and the result was a great success. My recipe below makes 12 buns which are 5sp each so you could either have 2 or 3 as a meal or serve as a starter and have 1 or 2 per person.

Tandoori Salmon with Pilau Cauli Cous Cous- 1sp

As you will have no doubt seen by my Instagram, curry Sunday has become a regular thing in our household. Always keen to come up with new and interesting things to serve on a Sunday, this week I decided to give making my own Tandoori Marinade a go. It is exceptionally easy and I have to say, the results were fantastic. Whilst not strictly a curry, the delicious Indian flavours which burst from this dish definitely make it Sunday worthy.

Mussels in a Spicy Tomato Chilli Sauce – 2sp

Lots of people that I speak to often say they love to eat mussels when they go out but are a bit nervous to make them themselves. I would have said the same until I gave it a go for the first time and now they are a regular in our house.

Mussels really are one of my favourite, quick go to meals when I am looking for something both cheap and easy and low in points. You get a huge portion for only 2sp so you can add to it as you please. I’ve cooked some spaghetti and stirred it through the sauce at the last minute and then served the mussels on top or I’ve just served it with a warm WW petite pan. If you add either of these, be sure to add the extra points.
