It’s a great way to pack in an extra bit of speed, which makes it ideal on SP days, and it’s completely syn free, if you choose to use the cheese as part of your HEA.

We’ve chosen to use butter beans in this recipe for no other reason than, we love them. We can’t get enough of them. However, you could of course use other beans, like Cannelini or Borlotti.

Syn Free Courgette & Butterbean Frittata

I’ve already mention this Syn Free Courgette & Butterbean Frittata uses part of your HEA, for the cheese. We used Cathederal City Lighter, which is 40g for your HEA, and makes working out a quarter of that simple.

But, don’t forget, other brands may vary so check Syns Online for the correct quantities. In our case the syn value, if we weren’t using part of our HEA, would be 1.5 syns per portion.

We also use Cirio Chopped Tomatoes in this recipe. We don’t find them as watery as some other brands, which makes them perfect for this dish. Of course you could always use a few chopped up fresh tomatoes if you prefer.

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 Syn Free Courgette & Butterbean Frittata recipe.
