Another pound lost meaning I have just half a pound to go to reach target. I must be able to do that this week surely?
Dinner the other night - harissa lamb with chickpeas. Originally a BBC recipe not specifically a slimming one but I made it using spinach instead of dried apricots.
The harissa paste is 1 syn per tablespoon so about .25 syns per serving. Everything else is free. I served it with cauliflower and broccoli rice, sprouts and carrots so loads of speed food too.
To make it, chop lamb leg steaks into cubes and coat with harissa paste. Put in casserole dish with a carton of passata, a mug of water and a sprinkling of thyme. Bring to the boil then transfer to the oven, 150, for an hour. Add tin of chickpeas (drained) and cook for another 45 minutes before adding chopped spinach and finishing off for 15 minutes or so, or until lamb is tender.
To make cauliflower and broccoli rice you need a blender. Chop a medium-sized head of cauli and some broccoli until it's in rice-sized pieces. Microwave for 7 minutes. No water needed. You can add some pilau or other spices before you start to cook if you want.
