DONNER KEBAB & SWEDE CHIPS

Kebab – 5% minced beef with sweated onions and garlic, chucked in the blender with an egg for binding some kebab seasoning I bought off Amazon. Pat it down in a loaf tin and bake in the oven for approx. 30 mins (depending on how much meat you use).  Use coleslaw mix rather than salad in the pitta it’s more authentic that way.

CHIPS – Put a full swede in the microwave for 8-10 minutes, peel and chop into chips. Spray with spray light and season with chip seasoning.  Cook in a hot over for 20-25 minutes.

JAMAICAN JERK MUSHROOM LINGUINE

  • Cup of sliced baby mushrooms
  • ½ can light coconut milk
  • ½ tsb Goya (Adoba) seasoning
  • ½ chopped red onion

  • 1 tbsp Jerk seasoning
  • 2 spring onions to add at end
  • 100g cooked Linguine noodles
  • Serves 2 – 450 cals per serving

Season mushroom with 1 tbsp soy sauce and ½ tsp Goya (Adobe) seasoning and let it marinate for approx. 20 minutes. Saute red onion, garlic and jerk seasoning in spray oil for about 3 minutes then add 3 tbsp coconut milk and cover for 3 minutes. Add all dente noodles and combine everything together, while adding more coconut milk to get it nice and creamy.  Turn heat down cut the spring onions, flip the pasta a bit and put onions on top.

HEALTHY SUNDAY ROAST

Making a healthy roast can be easy, it doesn’t have to be laden with calories and fat. 

  • Cut all visible fat off meat.
  • Boil vegetables don’t add butter.
  • Use skimmed milk for mashing potatoes.
  • Frylight on roast potatoes instead of meat fat/goose fat
  • Instant gravy without using the meat fat

Across all five meetings this week a total of 177 marbles have gone FOREVER!!!
