Ok, so I’ve strayed from the diet a little recently but with our holiday to Thailand looming, me and the Mr decided we need to get back on it! Here’s a seriously low calorie dinner thats super tasty and minimal effort. Rolling in at about 300 calories per portion you can even treat yourself to a cheeky slice of garlic bread with it. The recipe is adapted from the BBC Good Food site.
- 6 Low Fat Sausages (I used Weight Watchers)
- 1/2 Yellow Pepper
- 1/2 Red Pepper
- 1 Red OR Yellow Onion
- 1/2 Tin Chopped Tomatoes (200g)
- 125ml Stock (I used my Chicken Stock)
- Fresh Basil
Preheat your oven to 200°C.
Roughly chop the peppers & quarter the onions. Place it all into a roasting tray along with the sausages. Season with salt & pepper and roast in the middle of the oven for 20 minutes.
After 20 minutes, remove the tray from the oven. The veg should have softened and it should all have a nice colour to it. Add the tomatoes, stock, basil and plenty of salt & pepper. Mix well and return to the oven for about 20 minutes.
This dish is so quick and simple to make. It’s the perfect lazy midweek meal. You could even serve it up at a dinner party if you swapped out the low fat sausages for some tasty, good quality sausages! As the recipe demands minimal human involvement it would allow you to spend more precious time with your guests.
You can really play about with the vegetables too. Maybe try some carrots, sweet peppers, parsnips, courgettes, potatoes, the list is pretty much as endless as your imagination.
In other news this week, a shout out to the family who took on the Snowdon ranger path and defeated it. Well done guys, proud of you all! It’s also my brother’s Birthday this week so Happy Birthday dude! Hope you enjoyed your cupcakes as much as I enjoyed making them! I will share the recipe with you all in the next few days. I’m quietly very proud of this creation so it definitely deserves it’s own post!
Hope you enjoyed the post.
Until next time my little KitchenMasonites!
