Below is a selection of recipes, tried and tested for nutrional value! Most are Slimming World compatible, and we will give syn values where we can.

JAY’S ONION BAHJI’S – SW SYN FREE
This is a fantastic recipe that is great for snacking, very easy to make and delicious. It’s a firm favourite for die hard Slimmingworld fans. I think they’re the business!

For this recipe, you will need the following :-
1 x Large white or red onion.
1 x Can of Asda chickpea dahl.
1 x Large egg.
1 x 107g Bag of smash potato.

Instructions
1. Warm oven to 200 degrees Celsius or gas mark 8
2. Empty chickpea dahl into a medium sized mixing bowl and mash up with a potato
masher until semi smooth.
3. Finely chop or grate onion into the mixing bowl with the chickpea dahl.
( If you like more onion, just add another )
4. Empty smash potato into the mixing bowl with the other ingredients.
5. Finally add the egg and mix everything thoroughly together until it all comes together.
6. With your hands or 2 spoons form small balls with the mixture and place on a baking
tray sprayed with frylight. ( The mixture gets a bit sticky, so it’s best to wet your hands
or spoons, whichever you are using )
The mixture should make about 8 big ones or 12 smaller ones, it’s up to you.
7. Spray the top of the bahji’s with a bit more frylight and pop into the oven for 20mins.
8. When ready, cool on a rack and enjoy hot or cold.

CHICKPEA DAHL LOAF – SW SYN FREE
This is a recipe given to us by Slimming World Loser of the Year 2010, and Marathon runner Stuart Howells. Tried this and it is really good served with salad. Dead easy to knock up and cheap as well!

1 x 400g tin Sundar Chickpea Dahl (from ASDA or Morrisons on the World Foods aisle)
1 x pack of Batchelors Savoury Rice (any flavour)
4 x eggs
1 x rectangular Pyrex cooking dish about 2″ deep

Cook Savoury rice as directions
Stir in the chickpea dahl
Mix in the eggs
Bake on 200 for 40 mins or until firm

Leave to cool and then put in the fridge to chill.
Cut slice and enjoy

Add any other ingredients of choice, we use tuna chunks or onion etc.

LEEK, CHEESE, HAM AND TOMATO BAKE – SW SYN FREE
Another of Stuart’s recipes, we loved this one. Had this a few times in the week leading up to the marathon and it served me well!EE on extra easy

2 packets of Batchelors Leek and Cheese Pasta n Sauce 120g
2 tomatos
1 leek
6 eggs
Black pepper and chilli flakes to taste

Chop some ham into small pieces
Finely chop the leek
Make up the Pasta n Sauce as per the directions until sauce is thick but not solid, beat the eggs and add to the pasta along with the ham, leek, pepper and chilli flakes.
Mix well and pour into a Pyrex baking dish (preferably square with rounded corners)
Bake on 200 degrees for 25 minutes, turning occasionally in the oven to ensure it cooks evenly.
Remove from oven and cover with a clean tea towel to cool naturally.
When cooled turn out onto a chopping board and cut into squares, put the baking dish back on top and turn over to put pieces back in, store in the fridge and serve hot or cold.
Can use other flavours of Pasta n Sauce and other additional ingredients to personal taste.

    Just tried Jay’s Onion Bahji’s, and have to say they are top notch. Will leave a couple over night and see what they are like tomorrow. Could well be a staple packed lunch ingredient there!
