Our Top 10 Batch Cooking Recipes | Slimming World

As a busy mum of an insomniac, full of beans 2 year old, batch cooking has been something of a saviour.

More often than not, I can’t get into the kitchen until I’ve been rescued by my husband coming home from work and relieving me from preventing The Child from destroying the place.

But by then, it tends to be pretty late to start prepping a whole meal.

So, I find that planning is key – I try to cook double batches of meals, or bulk recipes out with plenty of veg which makes the meat go further – and then freeze it.

These disposable foil containers are perfect for freezing loads of meals. Best of all, you can also reheat food in the oven in them (thus saving on washing up…I HATE washing up!)

You can always use sealable sandwich bags too. Just remember to clear plenty of space in your freezer before a batch cooking session!

 

Some recipes are particularly good for batch cooking as they can be used in several different ways.

A basic bolognese recipe can be used as it is, or in a lasagne, or turned into a chilli or bolognese pasta bake!

Freezing our recipes

Wherever you see the freezing symbol on one of our recipes, it means it can be frozen, but please remember to do the following;
– Freeze it as soon as it is cold enough
– Use a container or bag that is suitable for freezing.
– Defrost thoroughly before reheating.

Make sure it’s piping hot before serving!

  1. Does anyone know how I can convert a cake recipie to syns. so i can work out syns per slice. Also does granulated low cal sugar work in same way as caster if I replace in a recipie. Thanks

    1. Hi Tracy
      It’s hard to work out as you’d need to syn each ingredient separately. A rough guide is 1 Syn for every 20 calories, but this only works for food that does not have a free food allowance. Also, if it’s not on the app you can work it out using the Syn calculator or the Snackulator on the SW website.
      We don’t allow syn requests in this group, but if you don’t have access to the SW website then there are a number of FB groups dedicated to providing Syn values.
      You can ask for Syn values in the How Many Syns Facebook group. Or you can look at syn values here – Syns Allowed Facebook Group.
