Syn Free Prawn Guvech | Slimming World

Prawn Guvec


This dish became one of our favourites after we discovered a small mediterranean restaurant not too far away from where we live, but as with a lot of our favourite meals, it isn’t Slimming World friendly, so we decided to create our own syn free version (let’s not mention it only getting 1 star in it’s most recent environmental health inspection!!).

We like to use Sukrin, which is an all-natural granulated stevia sweetener alternative to sugar with zero calories. It doesn’t have that strange after taste that a lot of artificial sweeteners do, which makes it perfect for cooking and baking.

Sukrin is in equal and weight to sugar, so if you're using a powdered sweetener you'll need to use less as it weighs less.

You can grab Sukrin over on Amazon

Güveçh is the name of a variety of earthenware pots used in Turkish cuisine, and of a number of casserole/stew dishes that are cooked in them. Meats used can include chicken, pork, lamb or sometimes beef or fish and seafood, or the meat can be omitted completely and replaced with vegetables such as aubergine, courgettes, potatoes and carrots. Some variations also include the addition of melted cheese (mozzarella or cheddar) so it’s up to you if you want to add a couple of syns.

As with most traditional mediterranean recipes, olive oil is used fairly liberally. An ideal substitute is Frylight Extra Virgin Olive Oil Spray which is perfect for shallow frying, roasting and baking that calls for the subtle flavour of Olive Oil.
