A Few New Slimming World Finds

I’ve started following some great Slimming World bloggers, and other people seem to be organised enough to take and post pics of everything they eat.  I’m nowhere near efficient enough for that; I do try and take pics for instagram, but I’m often halfway through dinner before I realise I’ve not done a picture.

So here’s just a quick selection of some of my favourite finds this week.

(And as I’m writing this, I’ve just remembered that I’ve forgotten to include the new Turkish Delight mullers – they’re gorgeous!).


Alien Jelly (the big picture) is inspired by an Instagram post this week.  It’s a sugar free lime jelly with a vanilla and choc sprinkles muller light.

Make up the jelly with half a pint of water, stir in the muller light (don’t worry – it looks very strange at first). I added a drop of green food colouring to make it even brighter, but that’s not really necessary!  I divided the mix into three pots, so that’s just half a syn each.

Prepared Fruit is a bit of an indulgence, I know. But it’s always so lovely and is a really simple way of getting some superfrees with zero hassle.  Asda are doing 2 boxes for £3, so I’m having a couple each week.

The strange blob in the middle is a bit of leftover mix from making a Slimming World Curried Rice Loaf.  I’d included some extra veg and an extra egg when which meant there was a bit too much for the loaf tin. So this is the mixture that was left over, cooked in a cake tin.  I’ve no idea what I’d call it, but it was lovely.

And the two little coffee jars were recommended by our Slimming World consultant this week.  I’ve had some of the hazlenut one today and it’s gorgeous.

I’m getting loads of ideas from the bloggers, tweeters and instagrammars all following Slimming World.  It’s great to see Slimming World ideas throughout the week and not just in class.

Kedgeree Slimming World Recipe

I came up with this Kedgeree Slimming World recipe after a couple of attempts with ordinary versions I found online.  This one’s straightforward, fairly quick and fills the kitchen with a gorgeous smell from the spices.

Perfect for a slow Sunday brunch when you have time for something special.

Serves 1 or 2
Syn free if using the milk as a HexA
40 minutes

1 large onion
1 tsp ground coriander
1 tsp ground turmeric
2 tsp curry powder
250ml semi skimmed milk
110ml water
120g brown rice
200g smoked haddock
2 or 3 eggs
Handful of frozen petit pois


1 – Chop the onion finely and fry in frylight until softened but not coloured.

2 – Add the coriander, turmeric and curry powder, stir well and cook for a further three minutes.

3 – Add the rice, milk and water and simmer the mix with the lid on the pan for 20-30 minutes (leave the lid on and the rice will absorb all of the liquid).

With 10 minutes left to go:

4 – Boil the eggs for eight minutes.

5 – Boil the petit pois for five minutes and drain.

6 – Cook the haddock.  I use a covered dish and microwave for three minutes.

7 – Peel the eggs and chop into four to six pieces each.

8 – Once the rice has absorbed the liquid, add the eggs, petit pois and haddock.

9 – Stir to combine and serve straightaway.

Eggy Bread – Slimming World Style

I’m a great fan of Eggy Bread (we used to call it Gypsy Toast).  Like many old favourites, a couple of tweaks makes it a great fit with Slimming World.

I love this on weekend mornings with a few grilled mushrooms and a couple of plum tomatoes.

Serves 1
Syn free if using the bread as a HexB
20 minutes

60g wholemeal bread (HexB)
2 eggs
Salt and pepper
Fry Light





1 – Beat the eggs lightly with salt and pepper to taste.

2- Dip the bread into the egg mix, allowing time for the bread to absorb lots of egg.

3- Spray a frying pan with fry light and heat till hot.

4 – Add the bread slices.

5 – Fry for a few minutes until lightly browned.

6 – Turn and cook the other side.

7 – Serve immediately.


Slimming World Curried Rice Loaf

Slimming World Curried Rice Loaf is a great lunchtime recipe.  Ideal eaten cold, so it’s perfect for weekday lunchboxes.

Serves 2-3
Free on Extra Easy
30 minutes prep, 35 minutes cooking, 1 hour cooling

1 packet free instant curry rice (check your syns calculator for this)
200g ham
4 eggs


1- Pre-heat oven at 180 degrees C

2- Make up the savoury rice with water according to the packet instructions.

3- Cool the rice as much as you can (I sit my rice-cooking jug on a separate bowl of ice cubes, and give it a stir every few minutes).

4 – Chop the ham into small-ish cubes.

5 – Beat the eggs.

6 – Combine all ingredients and stir well.

7 – Line a small loaf tin with greaseproof paper.

8 – Carefully pour the mixture into the loaf tin.

9 – Cook in a baking tray in the oven for around 30 minutes.  When cooked, the loaf should be firm to touch and nicely browned (use a knife to check if the insides are cooked through).

10 – Cool for an hour and it slices beautifully. A little longer to cool if using for lunchboxes.

Don’t forget to add your Superfrees; goes very nicely with salad (can you tell I’m a bit of a beetroot fiend?!).

Yes, I know it looks decidedly weird…
