Chicken & Dumplings Using Leftover Chicken

This is really yum and the chicken really doesn't taste leftover

Lemon and Tuna Pasta

This is a very fresh and tasty pasta dish
The high fat count is from the oil in the fish, you could use tuna canned in water but it doesn't seem to have the same smooth texture.

Psyllium Husk Gallette

This is another version of the Oat Bran Gallette, but with a ton more fibre

Low Carb Mini Frittatas

These are great for a snack if you are on a low carb/high protein food plan. Two or three with a salad would be great for lunch.

Spicy Moroccan Mince

This is extremely tasty. If you can't find Moroccan Seasoning use 1 1/2 tsp each of dried cumin, coriander and 1 tsp each cinnamon, ginger, allspice, black pepper and ground cloves. Vary the amounts according to what you like.

Carrot and Sweet Potato Mash

I serve this with Parsnip, Nut and Cheese Sausages
Also in Sparkrecipes

Sauteed Leeks

I serve this with Parsnip, Nut and Cheese Sausages

Country Lamb Casserole

You could also use stewing chops or Lamb shanks for this recipe.

Also if you do not like Rutabagas (Swedes) alternate with Parsnip.

Gluten Free Mandarin and Almond Cakes

These do not rise very much (@1") but are extremely light and tasty.

You can also place this mixture into a greased and lined 8" (22cm) springform pan and cook for @ 40 minutes.

Vegan Sausages with Tomatoes and Beans

This is a really tasty meal that can be served with crusty bread if liked. Even meat eaters will like this

Mediterranean Chicken Bake

Great served with pasta or a piece of crusty bread.

This can also be made in the slow cooker.

Homemade Creamy Tomato Soup

This is easy to make with what you have in the cupboard and very delicious

The sugar overcomes the bitterness of canned tomatoes, you could use stevia etc. You could also substitute the light cream for low fat evaporated milk, but be careful not to boil

Passata is a finely blended tomato sauce, if you can't find it in the stores replace it with another 2 cans of tomatoes.

Vegetarian Sausage and Vegetable Curry



This meal will be vegan if you use vegan sausages.

Pineapple Sponge Custard


You could use any fruit for this.

Parsnip, Nut and Cheese Sausages

If you want to make these vegan, just substitute the cheese and egg white for vegan alternatives. You can use any nut you please and they can be ground if you do not like pieces of nut in the sausages.

Serve with a Carrot and Sweet Potato Mash and Sauteed Leeks, they go together perfectly. Both of these are listed in Sparkrecipes

Chicken and Cheese Fritters using Leftover Chicken

These were very light like pancakes. You could use any cheese you like, goat cheese or yellow cheese, I used the feta and it was lovely. You could serve these as a light lunch with just a little chutney or with a salad for a meal.

Spanish Chicken Bake using Leftover Chicken

Make sure your paprika is fresh as it can be bitter if stale. Try to grate the Parmesan with a microplane grated it will make it go further.

Sweet Chicken Curry in a Hurry using Leftover Chicken

This is based on a recipe from the Eating Well website, with just a few tweaks

Okonomiyaki (Vegetarian)

I know this is a little high in the sodium, but it includes the sauce and mayo topping.

If you want to make it vegan substitute the egg with egg replacer.

I have used full fat Danish Feta because it is creamy, but you could use low or no fat Feta if you wish.


Very Good (3 ratings)
Cheese and Pesto Fish Cakes

It sounds like an odd combination, but it works. You could lightly saute fish fillets and top them with the pesto then the grated cheese if you so wish.
NOTE: These are a soft fishcake so do not put into the George Forman Grill.

Apple Cottage Pancakes

The cottage cheese melts through, but if not liked you could use ricotta or sour cream. Check nutrition amounts if changed.

Creamy Cheese Crusted Fish

The cheese spread keeps the fish very moist.

Cheesy Corn Muffins

These are not exactly low fat but are very satisfying. If wanted you could use fat free sour cream and cheese. If you change the herbs, these are great with chilli.

Orange and Date Steamed Pudding

You could use any type of fruit in this.
I usually serve this when we have something simple like soup for dinner.

Banana and White Chocolate Muffins

These have a delicate taste, if you like muffins with more spice add nutmeg, cinnamon or mixed spice.

Osso Bucco

This is a really hearty dish that goes well with mashed potatoes and steamed green beans.

To make it really low fat, leave overnight and skim any fat before reheating.

These are a lovely light muffin. You could also use any jam or jelly you like (even diet marmalade), or change the peel or juice. To make it even lighter use half white and half wholegrain flour.

Easy Lamb Shank Casserole

This is such a simple and very tasty casserole. There is no reason why you couldn't use chicken, turkey, beef or pork, the sauce goes well with either. Add whatever vegetables you wish and vary the herbs to your taste.

You could place ingredients into a slow cooker after step 3 and cook for required time depending on your cooker.
