If you want something quick for dinner which tastes like you spent hours putting love and attention in to it, then this is the recipe for you.
Ok so I admit, Pink Pasta does sound a little strange but hear me out. If like me you always thought beetroot was just that thing that came in jars and went on a salad and was a nightmare to get out of your clothes your wrong, well maybe not about the clothes part.
This is one tasty little number. Its simple to make and simply gorgeous! The sweet potato crisps to garnish just take the whole dish to another level so I definitely recommend making them. The best part is if you don’t use them all on the soup you have a tasty low fat snack for later. This soup is syn free, dairy and gluten free 🙂
I absolutely love pasta. I could eat it every day, three times a day, if my metabolism allowed me to, however, mine doesn’t allow me to sniff a burger without putting on three pounds so unfortunately that’s out the window. There is a pasta dish in Zizi’s that I absolutely love, however, being on Slimming World, its probably far too many syns. So I set about to make my own Slimming World friendly version and I have to say, its delicious! I must warn you, I do like a bit of spice so if you are what I call “A Lemon and Herb” kinda of person you may want to use one red chilli instead of two.
Tomato and basil soup, it is a bit of a classic. I have tried so many different variations of this soup but the basics are always the same. The most important thing is to get good tasty tomatoes. If your tomatoes taste like sawdust then you might as well not bother.
I think I am slightly in love with this beetroot and basil soup, it honestly tastes as good as it looks. The sweetness of the basil compliments the earthiness of the beetroot perfectly. They are kinda like Chandler and Monica getting together in Friends, you never really thought about them being together before but when they do get together you just know they were meant to be.. If you’ve never tried roasted beetroot before or not sure if you like it, this is the recipe that is going to make you a convert!
The Sunday Roast. A British Classic. However the Roast Chicken gets a bit of a bad rap. Its not always as exciting as lamb or beef and lets face it, we have all had a roast chicken which is bland, tasteless and dry. It doesn’t take a lot of effort to transform your every day bland roast chicken to a taste explosion that will make you feel like there is a party in your mouth… too far? you get the point.
