Vegetarian meals are great. Who needs to eat meat? Admittedly growing children will benefit from a small quantity of meat in their diet. But, nobody needs to eat meat every day.
Slimming food should not be bland insipid cuisine.
Vegetarian Meal for the Weight Conscious
We have curated a selection of delicious vegetarian recipes from some of the best known kithen chefs on the Internet.
Syn Free Cheese and Onion Tart
One of my staple foods while developing Slimming World recipes is onions. In curries, chutneys, pasta dishes, salads; life would be so boring without them. But I’ve had a drawer full of them for more than I really should admit.
Basically, I was so sick of buying them in smallish bags and run out too quickly, that as soon as I found huge sack in Morissons, I threw them in to my trolley without a second thought.
Slimming World Red Pepper Hummus
This Red Pepper Hummus is great to serve as a slimming friendly dip with practically anything – it’s perfect when calorie counting or following a diet plan like Weight Watchers.
This Red Pepper Hummus is so simple and it couldn’t be quicker to make – just throw everything into a blender/food processor and blitz!
Syn Free Nachos Style Feast
This nachos style feast is the ultimate in Slimming World comfort food! A layer of crispy potato wedges, perfect for dipping, a mountain of tasty mince and gooey melted cheese… it really doesn’t get more comforting than that!
The flavours in this dish are, of course, in keeping with the Mexican theme, with cumin, paprika and chilli taking centre stage. Delicious red peppers also add extra speed to the dish. Personally, as someone who doesn’t really enjoy nachos, I’d take this over its unhealthy counterpart any day!
Slimming World Cheese and Onion Pasties
Cheese pasties and dieting aren’t the most likely of bedfellows. Lashings of creamy cheese teamed up with puff pastry might be bloody delicious, but it’s also bloody calorific.
If you’re prone to a trip down to your local Gregg’s though, you’ll be pleased to know that you absolutely don’t have to abstain completely.
Your favourite baked treats can still be on the menu – it’s just a case of getting a bit creative in the kitchen and substituting a few ingredients to make them more waistline-friendly.
Syn Free Curried Butternut Squash Soup
With Autumn on the way, we wanted a slimming friendly Curried Butternut Squash soup to warm us up – perfect if you’re calorie counting or following Weight Watchers.
Our Curried Butternut Squash Soup packs a punch in terms of flavour but the garnish takes it to the next level. To elevate this ‘winter warmer’ we’ve used pumpkin seeds for texture, fat-free natural yoghurt for creaminess and a sprinkle of coriander for a zing of flavour.
Garlic Mushroom Risotto
This Garlic Mushroom Risotto is one of the easiest dishes that you can can make in a Tefal Actifry XL, and a great low Point and low calorie meal!
It’s such a versatile kitchen gadget, and we love making the Garlic Mushroom Risotto as it makes it such an easy recipe to follow. No stirring, no messing, the Actifry does all the hard work for you!
As fab as Risotto is, having to keep stirring it is no good when you’re in a rush, or have the kids to keep an eye on!
