This didn’t take long to prepare, although I did have a big dish of butter beans, already cooked, in the fridge. It was filling, even tho it was less than 300 calories, and 3 hours later, I am not in the least bit hungry. It tasted really good with the carrots. A tasty lunch from the simplest of simple ingredients.
I couldn’t tell the difference between my usual ones, made with eggs and milk, and these. Costwise, these could be doable, where egg and milk ones weren’t. Pancakes with lemon and sugar – or there are lots of other lovely ways to enjoy them

Giant butter beans, in a spicy sauce and served with a pitta bread, couscous, or anything else you fancy. Part of meal plan 4
This is a delicious soup. Mildly spicy and creamy, a lovely cold weather lunch, filling, warming and tasty. Serve with either herb bread or tomato scones.
This recipe is one I have had in my recipe book for a very long time. As is the case with many curries, it is very variable. You can change the vegetables around pretty much to whatever you want
Made some granola this evening. The whole place now smells of vanilla, a delicious smell. The granola is for the 4th meal plan and the entire huge box of it is available for use during the week if required.
These scones have a strong tomato, savoury flavour and really hit the spot. The recipe for 3 ingredient scones couldn’t be simpler. If you are looking for dairy free and vegan recipes, these scones do not contain any dairy or animal products
Only takes about half an hour to make and is a delicious warming dish to come home to. Root vegetables in cder or apple juice, with cheesy dumplings on top
