Homemade Goose Gravy

Homemade Goose Gravy

Christmas is the time to go to town and make your own gravy from scratch. It’s easier than you think and gives really tasty results. This recipe is for goose, but you can use the same method for turkey or other poultry. Ingredients: Giblets (neck, heart and gizzard, not the liver) Water or chicken stock […]

Tandoori Turkey Quick Curry – Syn Free

Tandoori Turkey Quick Curry – Syn Free

This definitely isn’t an authentic curry, but very much a lazy cheat’s version. On the plus side it’s really quick to prepare, very tasty and completely syn free on Slimming World Extra Easy! Being quite big turkey thighs will provide about 3 portions. Great served with rice. Ingredients: Turkey thigh – 1 whole (skinned & […]

Spicy Turkey Burgers – Syn Free

Spicy Turkey Burgers – Syn Free

So on Monday I started my Slimming World diet, and this was the first dinner I made. Turkey Burgers, Cheese Stuffed Mushrooms, and Low Syn Potato Wedges really made me feel like I wasn’t even on a diet, not bad for less than 1 syn for the entire meal! The ingredients for the turkey burgers […]

Tomatoey Turkey and Vegetable Casserole

Tomatoey Turkey and Vegetable Casserole

This recipe is a slight twist on my Slow Cooker Turkey Pot Roast with Vegetables & Tomato Sauce. The twist is I didn’t use a slow cooker. I cooked this at my mam’s and her slow cooker is a round medium sized one and the turkey leg was too long.  Ingredients: Turkey – leg & […]

Diet Days 46-50 (Some Good, Some Bad)

I’ve avoided the scales this week, Thursday was not a very restrained day! It started off well, coffee, orange juice and a slice of sunflower and chia seed bread with a bit of quark (no butter) for breakfast. Lunch was another slice of bread, and a few slices of pastrami, so not terrible either. Dinner […]

Slow Cooker Turkey Pot Roast with Vegetables & Tomato Sauce

Slow Cooker Turkey Pot Roast with Vegetables & Tomato Sauce

This recipe ticks all my boxes: batch cooking, healthy, easy, cheap, and tasty. I bought a large turkey wing and thigh pack from my favourite supermarket for just £4. With a few bits of veg and a tin of tomatoes (£1.50) it made a delicious, light and summer casserole that provided 6 good portions. I […]

Diet Days 39-42 (The Odd Fall from Grace)

Diet Days 39-42 (The Odd Fall from Grace)

Thursday I was very busy. I spent all day at a uni workshop. Lunch was provided. Naturally it wasn’t tailored to the Dukan or low carb, but I did the best I could. I had a chicken tikka sandwich, some sesame crusted salmon on a stick, arancini, and a bad thing (a mini pork pie…). […]
