I love to use seasonal products and asparagus is no exception. It adds real flavour and texture and I love eating veg that’s not the standard fare. Luckily it’s Asparagus season, and it isn’t that expensive!

You can grab “Wonky” asparagus from Morrisons for just £1 a bunch – not bad at all, considering it’s usually £2 a bunch!

  1. How is this your hea? When all 70g of your allowance is used over the 4 portions? Surely it’s 2 syns for the parma ham then about 1.5-2 syns for the mozzarella? Just checking as don’t like being outdone on cheese lol.

    1. Hi Michelle
      If you have a read through the recipe blurb, you’ll see this explanation;

      ‘This recipe uses a quarter of your Healthy Extra A per portion, if you’re not using your HexA then remember to syn the mozzarella accordingly.’

      70g reduced fat mozzarella is an HEA portion, but if not using as HEA it’s 6 Syns for the recipe. As it serves 4, you’ll need to count 1.5 Syns per serving.

    1. Hi San
      Lean bacon medallions are free, yes. As long as you’re counting the mozzarella as 1/4 of your HEA then it would be free.
