Slimming World Cheesy Green Lentil Bake

I wanted to make something tasty and warming, especially as those dark nights are drawing in! So I opted to make Slimming World Cheesy Green Lentil Bake.....and I was not disappointed.

Serves 2


A tin of Green Lentils
A tin of Ratatouille
Fry Light
Salt & Pepper to season
2 eggs
90g Low fat cheese                                        

  • Turn the oven on to 180c.
  • Empty the tin of green lentils into a pan and boil for 4 minutes.

  • Once cooked, lentils will be soft.  Drain them and put them in an oven proof dish (sprayed with fry light to stop any sticking), then add the tin of ratatouille.
  • Add to this the 2 eggs beaten up and the 90g of grated low fat cheese, along with the salt and pepper to season.

  • Bake in the oven for 20-30 mins till it is golden brown in colour.

And here is the finished article:

Syns: If you are using your Healthy Extra A then it will be free (for 1 serving - half of the whole dish) on Green and Extra Easy, if using your syns for the cheese it will be 6 syns per serving.

This tasted amazing!  I haven't tried lentils before but will definitely be making this again, and next time serve it with a big salad.

Back on the old diet before Christmas!!

Well its that time of year again when I am definitely in need of trimming down again.  My aim is to lose a stone by December so that I can fit into a rather expensive dress, which I bought to go to my brother in law's Wedding, unfortunately it is too tight at the moment.

So with all the best intentions, I have started back on the Slimming World diet again as I always find it so easy and there is such alot you can eat.

This morning I cooked  lovely big breakfast of beans, scrambled eggs, mushrooms and bacon (with the fat taken off).  I always eat better when I am doing Slimming Word and don't tend to skip meals like I do normally. All of this was syn free on Extra Easy.

Today's lunch was a really quick and tasty stir fry.


  • Stir fry vegetables
  • Soya Sauce (I used dark)
  • Dried egg noodles
  • Fry light
  • Salt to season

Stir Fry the Vegetables in Fry Light

I just used a pack of stir fry vegetables from Asda and fried them off in some fry light and some dark soya sauce.  I added some salt.

Meanwhile, I boiled some water in a pan and dropped in some egg noodles (I used Blue Dragon).

It says to use one nest per person but me being greedy used two and there was definitely too much.

Once the noodles were cooked I drained them and added them to the vegatables in the wok and cooked them for another minute or so.

I served the stir fry up, adding a little more soya sauce.

Simply delicious

Syns: Free on Green and on Extra Easy

This recipe could be adapted and you could add some lean meat to the stir fry, which would still be free on Extra Easy.
