Syn Free Sausage Casserole | Slimming World Recipe




The best thing about a casserole is you can usually bung anything into it.. any extra vegetables you have lurking around just chuck it all in.. remember it’s all about “Speed” 😉 I am always struggling with Slimming World meal ideas but I do love a good casserole. When Slimming World finally released some Syn free sausages I was made up! Finally a good old Sausage casserole 😉 This recipe will serve 2 people.

Ingredients

6 Slimming world pork sausages
3 Carrots (or you could use tinned/frozen)
1 Small leek
5 Tbsp frozen peas
3 Large Mushrooms
1/2 A large onion
1 Tbsp chopped parsley
1/2 Tsp dried mixed herbs
1 Garlic clove (or 1 Tsp garlic granules)
1 x 400g Chopped tomatoes
200ml Vegetable stock
Salt and Pepper
Frylight

Method:

1.  Finely chop carrots and leek and par boil them for 4-5 minutes.
2. Slice mushrooms and finely chop onion.
3. Spray a little Frylight into a non stick pan and cook your onion in the garlic for a few minutes. Add the sausages and brown them.
4. Make up 200ml of vegetable stock.
5. Add sausages, carrot, mushroom, leek, peas, sausages, parsley, dried mix herbs, parsley, pinch of salt and pepper, chopped tomatoes and vegetable stock into a casserole dish.
6. Cover and baked in the oven for 50-60 minutes on 180c ensuring the sausages are cooked.

Alternatively you can use the slow cooker  3-4 hours on high or 5-6 hours on low. Ensure sausages are cooked through before serving.

This can also be frozen in batches.

Other great vegetables to add are sweetcorn, potatoes, sweet potato, butternut squash, celery, cauliflower, broccoli, swede.

If you don’t already have a slow cooker I HIGHLY recommend this amazing slow cooker from Crock Pot.

The best thing about the CSC026 Crock-Pot slow cooker is the saute pan which can even be used on an induction hob and stored in fridge or freezer too.

I will be honest the main reason I went for this slow cooker is because I wanted it to fit in with our White/Grey kitchen theme but it turns out it really is an amazing product.

My old slow cooker was cheap and didn’t even have a timer on it. It’s definitely worth paying a little extra for a quality classy looking product.

It’s great for creating loads of wonderful Slimming World recipes and saves so much time when cooking.

If you fancy purchasing one of these you can have a look here


When I cook I always substitute oil with Frylight 1 Cal Spray. This spray is Syn free and it’s a HUGE healthy alternative to oil. I find the cheapest place to purchase this from is Home Bargains as its always on offer at around £1.45. But often it’s on offer in Iceland and other Supermarkets.

Syn Free Slow Cooker Chilli Con Carne | Slimming World Recipe




I have been trying lots of recipes in my new Crock pot slow cooker. Tonight was a delicious Chilli Con Carne. Just 10 minutes prep time and 4 hours in the slow cooker on high or 8 hours on low.

Portion size perfect for 3 – 4 people (or keep and reheat the next night, and the next.. or freeze)

Ingredients:

– 500g of 5% lean beef mince (or you could use turkey mince)
– 1 Beef Stock cube
– 150ml of boiling water
– 1 Red chilli
– 1 Yellow pepper
– 1 Red pepper
– 1 Large onion (or frozen onion)
– 1/2 Tsp Hot chilli powder (or 1 Tsp if you like it hot)
– 1/2 Tsp ground Cumin
– 2 x Chopped tomatoes
– 1 Tin of 500g kidney beans
– 1 Tsp Worcestshire sauce
– 1 Glove of garlic (or 1 tsp garlic powder or flakes)
– 1 Tsp Paprika
– A season of salt and pepper
Fry light

Method:

– Spray a little Fry Light into a pan (or your Crock-Pot Saute pan) and brown your mince.
– Drain any excess fat from the mince. I am quite obsessed with this so i even put the mince into kitchen roll and really soak up any extra fat or water. (Shown above)
– Finely chop peppers, onion, chilli etc. Drain your kidney beans and put into the slow cooker with your mince.
– Add your chopped tomatoes, spices and seasoning. I suggest draining the chopped tomatoes before adding them to the slow cooker, you want as little moisture going in as possible because so much water will come out of the vegetables etc.
– Make your stock with stock cube and 150ml of boiling water and add that to the slow cooker.
– Cook on high heat for 4 hours or low heat for 8 hours.

Such as easy recipe and so tasty too!
Serve over rice or cauliflower rice or vegetables.

Syn Free Slow Cooker BBQ Pulled Pork | Slimming World Recipe




I have only really ever had pulled pork on top of an unhealthy burger in a restaurant.. so I thought I would try this amazing SYN FREE Slimming world pulled pork recipe. I am so glad i did. Hubby was extremely impressed too!
This serves around 4 people or perfect for portion freezing.

Ingredients:

– 1.3kg – 2kg Pork shoulder with all fat removed (1.3kg is absolutely fine for 2 people for one meal)
– 500g Passata 
– 5 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
– 2 Tbsp Balsamic vinegar
– 2 Cloves of garlic (or 2 tsp garlic powder or flakes)
– 1 Tsp Mustard powder
– 4 Tbsp Sweetener 
– 1/2 Tsp Paprika
– Salt and pepper seasoning
Fry light

Method:

– Add Passata, Worcestershire sauce, Balsamic vinegar, Mustard powder, Sweetener, Garlic, Salt and Pepper to a small saucepan. Simmer for 10 minutes until the sauce thickens.

– Remove all of the visible fat from the pork shoulder. This is not always easy, but with a sharp knife it can be managed without loosing too much of the meat.

– In a hot frying pan and a little fry light sear each side of the pork. (Or use your saute crock pot)

– Transfer the pork to your slow cooker and cover with the BBQ sauce. Cook on low heat for 8-12 hours depending on the weight of your pork.





– Once cooked place the pork onto a plate or cutting board and tear the meat apart with two forks. You should find the meat falls off of the bone easily.

– Mix with some of the sauce or drizzle once served. Serve in a Healthy Extra B roll or just on it’s own with Slimming world chips and salad.
