Instead of the brandy I've experimented with cognac and even Bailey's – all yum.
If you like you can add 4 tablespoons of pine nuts to this recipe, which will add about 60 calories per serving.
A completely fat free soup with a good, rich orange colour. The addition of blended butter beans gives it a creamy consistency without adding fatty calories.
40g I can't beleive it's not butter (or any low fat baking margarine)
1 tsp each grated lemon, lime and orange zest
60 g xylitol
1 small egg

60 ml soy milk
1 tsp poppy seeds

A moreish nut-, gluten- and sugar-free recipe.
This recipe uses very little added oil, by cooking the aubergine in the microwave you don't have to fry it and therefore it won't soak up loads of oil as it cooks.
Alternatively, use extra lean beef mince instead of lamb mince and stir fry with 1 Tbs of olive oil.
To make this recipe even lighter, use lean beef mince, which you can fry in 1 Tbs of olive oil.
Lovely with lamb, or omitting the mint, use as a delicious spread.
Delicious on toast, hot new potatoes or steamed vegetables.

Try baking fish on top of sliced potatoes?
In this recipe, the chocolate puffs add a satisfying crunch. For something even crunchier, you can use banana chips, but bear in mind 60g (1/2 cup) will give you about 30kcal more per serving.
Serve with boiled rice

Original version of rice pudding, from India. If you're not allergic to nuts, add 3 tbs dry roasted cashews or pistachios along with the cream, sugar and raisins.
Payasam can be served as liquid as a drink or as thick as English rice pudding – which ever you prefer.
You can use any fruit you like, dates or raisins. I use apricots as they are very low in calories.
When cut into 24 small bars, each serving is just 67 kcal.
If cut into 24 small bars these are only 61 cals each. I tried making these with margarine, but the taste just wasn't as good. But for a vegan version margarine works fine.

Let's face it, bright food is more appetising. The gorgeous colours and sweet flavours in this salad are very satisfying.
A Golden Dream is just that, a dream. It's a creamy martini flavored with orange and just a hint of spice via the Galliano. You can also skip the cream and blend the other ingredients with ice cream for a frozen treat. Both versions are a fantastic dessert drink option.
This recipe is for one helping, so be careful when you add ingredients like garlic and chilli – don't make the portion too strong for your own taste!
