The amazing singing swede !!


When I heard of people cooking a swede this way it sounded so bizarre I didnt think it would work but hey for 80p for a swede if it didnt work not got much to lose.
The simple answer is it works and works very well, The nickname ‘the singing swede’ apparently comes from the noise it makes in the microwave when cooking the swede its sort of whistles…very weird I know…and this is the easiest most basic thing I have ever posted I dont think it could even be called a recipe! You dont need to prick the swede or even wash it as you discard the skin.

Singing Swede
1 swede

Place swede in microwave for 15 minutes turning it over halfway through.


When cooked cut off the top and scrape out all the cooked swede and its done. (see picture for details)

I love that this is a super easy way to cook a vegetable no peeling, chopping, mashing its all done and I love plain swede with loads of black pepper as a side dish so enjoy and I know this is a bit of a daft post but was so pleased it worked thought worth sharing with everyone.

EDIT: For my US friends a swede is known over with you as a rutabaga I believe xx

Spiced Cabbage Soup – syn free and super speedy!


So I was up early again this morning. My body does this sometimes, decides that it’s perfectly okay to wake at 5am! Anyway, I decided to use the time efficiently and make a soup for our lunch today using the other half of the Savoy cabbage from last night’s tea.
Spiced Cabbage Soup – syn free on all plans!
Spiced Cabbage Soup
Syn free on EE, EE SP, Red Days and Green Days
Makes about 4 bowls worth

– Half a head of cabbage, chopped
– One stick of celery, chopped
– One carrot, chopped
– Half a large onion, chopped
– One green pepper, chopped
– 2 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
– A pint of boiling water
– One chicken stock cube
– Carton of pasatta
– 1 tsp of dried oregano
– 1 tsp of cumin powder
– Black pepper
– Low calorie spray

Spray a heavy bottomed saucepan with low cal spray and heat over a gentle heat. Add onion, celery, carrot and green pepper to the pan and cook until the veg is tender. Stir in garlic. Pour in boiling water and crumble in the stock cube. Stir in pasatta, dried oregano and cumin powder and add the cabbage to the pan. Bring to a boil and simmer for 10 minutes or so or until the cabbage and other vegetables are tender, season well with black pepper. Blitz in a food processor or with a hand blender until thick and smooth adding more water if necessary. Then serve and enjoy – I will be reheating mine later although when I tested the soup I understood why some people have soup for breakfast because it tasted very nice and I was tempted, lol! Should keep for 3 days if kept in the fridge.

Amzing SW Mississippi mud pie


60g low fat spread
10 reduced fat digestive biscuits
10 sheets of leaf gelatine
200ml skimmed milk
4 level tbsp cocoa powder, plus 1 tsp to dust
2 tsp coffee granules
250g quark
3 x 175g pots Muller Light Vanilla yogurt (or any free vanilla yogurt)
4 tbsp sweetener
5g milk chocolate, grated, to decorate
Leftovers can be stored in an airtight container for up to 2 days in the fridge.

Preheat the oven to 190C, gas 5 and line an 18cm springform tin with non-stick baking parchment.
Melt the spread in a pan over a low heat.
Meanwhile, put the biscuits in a sealable food bag, bash into fine crumbs and tip into a bowl. Pour in the melted spread, stir well and spoon the mixture into the prepared tin to cover the base, pressing down evenly. Bake for 12-15 minutes then set aside to cool.
Meanwhile, put the gelatine sheets into a small bowl, cover with cold water and leave to soften for 5 minutes.
Mix the milk, cocoa powder and coffee granules in a jug and heat in the microwave for 2 minutes. Squeeze the excess liquid from the gelatine sheets, add the sheets to the milk and whisk until they have dissolved.
Leave to cool for 10 minutes.
Whisk the quark, yogurt, sweetener and cooled milk using a hand whisk and pour on to the biscuit base. Chill for 4 hours or until set.
Release the pie from the tin and put the pie, still on its base if necessary, on a serving plate. Sprinkle over the grated chocolate and extra cocoa and slice to serve.

Slimming World Chocolate Cake


This recipe is made by the amazing Kate from witwitwoo Site, it’s not like eating a slab of Black Forest Gateaux, but it was chocolatey, light and airy and really hit the spot.
6 eggs
1-2 teaspoons vanilla extract
70g sugar substitute (eg. Splenda)
60g cocoa powder
Preheat over to 185°C (fan)
Spray a little Frylight in a loaf tin and line with greaseproof paper

Separate the eggs and in one bowl, mix the egg whites until they form soft peaks.
In another bowl, mix the other ingredients together – the eggs yolks, Splenda, vanilla and cocoa. You may find the mixture a little stiff so it’s OK to add a little splash of water at this stage.
Fold in the egg whites, a little at a time.
Pour mixture into your tin.
Bake for 25-30 minutes.
Syns : approximately 1-2 syns per slice
