Having lost about a stone and a half with Slimming World now, there is no denying that I am a big fan! I absolutely love their recipe books. I have bought a few along way - so I was really excited to review this Veggie Deluxe recipe book. Now I am not a veggie, but I definitely am always looking for new ways to incorporate more veg in to my diet, so this book is ideal.
The book contains over 50 vegetarian recipes, all in four sections; Veg Express, Comforting Classics, Nice n Spicy and Veg with an Edge. At the moment I am trying to get us to have two fish dishes a week, two vegetarian and the other three days can be meat. I think that this will give us all a more balanced diet and also save us a few pennies along the way - which is never a bad thing! Now I try and make all of my main meals syn-free. I save my syns for wine at the weekends and that is my treat. Some of these recipes do contain syns, but not many, so I am happy to get on cooking all of them - I can't wait to get started!
I love how the recipes are so simple to follow and the food looks truly appetising. The ingredients are listed down the side, so you can just pick them up and get cracking.
The recipe I tried out tonight was Asparagus and Leek Fettucine. (I cheated and used tagliatelle instead.) It turned out great - asparagus is not something we would cook with regularly, so it was great to give this a go. The kids ate it as well. The sauce was made from Quark with rocket and vegetable stock. I still have some saved in the fridge for tomorrow!
Here's to dropping a few pounds next week!
Do check out Slimming World's website if you would like to join. It's the best decision I made!
