Our Top Ten Slimming World Recipes Of 2017

Last week, we asked the members of our Facebook Group to help us compile our Top Ten Slimming World Recipes Of 2017, and we were inundated with suggestions!

Our Top Ten Slimming World Recipes Of 2017 - featured

With so many amazing recipes on the Pinch of Nom website, it’s hard to decide on a favourite. We have recipes for every occasion, from breakfasts, lunches and dinners, to tasters and party foods and so much more!

So, without further ado, here are Our Top Ten Slimming World Recipes Of 2017, as chosen by our group members. (Don’t worry, they have GREAT taste!)

In the best awards ceremony tradition, we’re presenting the results in reverse order!

Number 10 – Low Syn Crispy Chilli Beef

We all love a takeaway, but the Syn values of many dishes from the local Chinese can be eye-popping! We came up with this delicious Low Syn Crispy Chilli Beef recipe to satisfy that need without the sky-high Syn tally! It works out at just 1 Syn per portion, so you can enjoy it guilt-free!

Number 9 – 1 Syn Corned Beef Pasties

When a member of the Facebook group posted a photo of these amazing1 Syn Corned Beef Pasties, there was an incredible reaction. We made them for ourselves and decided they were too good not to share!

Using the Weightwatchers Low Fat White Wraps as a Healthy Extra B choice saves 5.5 Syns, so you only need to Syn the lean corned beef!

Number 8 – Syn Free Gravy

The one thing I craved when I started Slimming World was a decent gravy recipe! I knew how to make a roast dinner Syn Free, but it’s not the same without Gravy!

We’ve made this wonderful, Syn Free Gravy that’s the perfect accompaniment to a roast dinner, or even toad in the hole!


Number 7 – Low Syn KFC Fakeaway

Go on, admit it! You miss the golden, crunchy glory of a KFC, don’t you? When the Syns in a regular KFC from the Colonel are too high, why not make this gorgeous Low Syn KFC Fakeaway instead?! It’s a big family favourite in my house, even with my fussy teenagers!

Number 6 – Syn Free Cheesy Garlic Bread

What can I say about Number 6?! Seriously, Syn Free Cheesy Garlic Bread. Oh yes! By using a Schar Ciabatta roll as your Healthy Extra B choice and cheese as half of your HEA, you have a delicious treat to enjoy with a meal. What could be better than that?!

Number 5 – Syn Free Salt and Pepper Chips

Our Syn Free Salt and Pepper Chips are a real Saturday night treat! Perfect for when you’re craving a takeaway, but don’t have enough Syns to spare.

These Syn Free Salt and Pepper Chips have become one of our favourite ‘Fakeaway’ recipes as they taste just like the ones you get from the takeaway.

Number 4 – Syn Free Bacon, Onion and Potato Bake

Syn Free Bacon, Onion and Potato Bake is real, traditional comfort food. Slices of potato, layered with onions and bacon, soaking up delicious vegetable or chicken stock.

Baked in the oven until golden and crispy, with a sprinkle of cheese on top. It’s ideal for a midweek evening meal. Absolutely yummy!

Number 3 – Syn Free Salt and Pepper Chicken

This was my all-time favourite takeaway dish before I began my Slimming World journey! I would order it without fail, with extra chillies if I was feeling adventurous!
I thought that this dish would be strictly off-limits, but no!

Our Syn Free Salt and Pepper Chicken is just as good, and the bonus is that you’re not using up any precious Syns. Life is good!

Number 2 – Syn Free Campfire Stew

Our original recipe for Syn Free Campfire Stew was given a makeover recently. It’s always been good, but now it’s even better!

People love it because it’s so easy to prepare, with simple ingredients that you’ve probably got in the cupboard right now.

You can leave it in the slow cooker whilst you get on with your day, or if you have an electric pressure cooker, you could rustle this up in less than an hour!


And Finally……(Drum roll, please!)

Number 1 – Syn Free Dirty Rice

Yes, Syn Free Dirty Rice. A combination of fried rice and dirty rice. Chinese and Cajun together to form the best Syn Free Slimming World Fried Rice ever!

There was so much interest in this recipe, we went on to create Syn Free Cajun Dirty Rice too, for those who prefer to use beef mince.
