Good morning. :-)
The cheesy broccoli soup yesterday was so very good, I have posted about it separately. It would also be nice using cauliflower or a mix of both and the cheesiness was satisfyingly pronounced. I definitely had my cheese hit!
Ditto for the Spanish cauliflower rice. I had not great expectations of this and it looked most unappealing as you can see from the photo on the recipe post but the flavour was great and I will make it again. Stir frying seems to minimise the strong cauliflower flavour and it takes on board other flavours you add. I am wondering about trying a Chinese based one next.
B: bacon, egg, potato waffle and mushrooms
I will get back to the oat-based breakfasts soon but right now I find the bacon and egg really fills me up.
SW: one syn for the potato waffle
L: cheesy broccoli soup, apple
Leftovers from yesterday's lovely lunch.
SW: healthy extra A for the cheesy part and the added milk - it's not really as much as that but I think it totals more than half so let's call it the whole extra
D: garlic, lemon and parsley chicken goujons, SW chips, side salad
I will need to zizz some bread for breadcrumbs but I won't use the lot on this. I shall freeze the rest for another time.
SW half a healthy extra B for the breadcrumbs (if that) and I might have some mayo too - that will be one syn for two level tbsp of the lighter than light stuff.
S: trying for none
I was of butter beans so yesterday I soaked a pack and cooked them overnight in my slow cooker - they're really a bit too soft right now but will be fine for mushing into burgers or for soup and I must remember to set a shorter time next time. When they are cooled I will open freeze them before bagging them so they are free-flow. A few added to a soup ups the protein and the fibre and imparts a lovely creamy texture when you zizz the soup so I always like having some available. Making them from a pack of dried beans is by far the most frugal way to go.
Just remember that you can cook pulses in a slow cooker BUT kidney beans need ten or so minutes of hard boiling in a pan to destroy enzymes that could otherwise give you quite a sore tum.
Pulses are great on Slimming World. They are free food and so very good for you. It's worth keeping some supplies in.
