Low Syn Hoisin Turkey Cucumber Cups | Slimming World

My favourite treat from the Chinese are crispy duck pancakes. Not only are they high in syns due to the fatty duck, but they are also expensive. These Low Syn Hoisin Turkey Cucumber Cups are a fantastic alternative and super thrifty!


For the full list of ingredients and comprehensive instructions, please see the recipe card at the end of this post. Before you scroll, there’s important stuff in the blurb 👍

I’ve discovered that turkey is a really good replacement for duck in all sorts of recipes as it has that gamey flavour but with a much lower price tag and fat content. With so much left over turkey at this time of year, it’s a great and tasty way to use it up!


These Low Syn Hoisin Turkey Cucumber Cups are only 0.5 syns each and are over half made up of speed foods – perfect for any party buffet!


Whenever we need to replace oil in cooking we use Frylight. Perfect for everyday frying and cooking, it delivers exactly one calorie per spray, which makes it Syn free! The Sunflower or Olive Oil flavours are ideal for this Low Syn Hoisin Turkey Cucumber Cups recipe.
