You may have seen our recipe for Scotch Eggs, that we posted yesterday, but what if you don’t eat meat? Don’t worry we’ve got this Syn Free Vegetarian Scotch Eggs recipe just for you.
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 👍
A few months ago we started a Facebook Group for those people who wanted to talk to us about not only our recipes, but Slimming World friendly food in general. Since then we’ve met some, fantastic, inspirational people, who are always willing to share tips and recipes with us and the group.
This Syn Free Vegetarian Scotch Eggs recipe was suggested by Sami P, from our group, so we just followed the recipe that she uses.
Before we get to the recipe, here’s a little bit about Sami’s journey so far.
Two years ago I got weighed at the hospital for a medical check and was horrified to weigh 18.5 stone. They suggested a gastric band but I wanted to do it on my own. I lost 2 stone on my own but then a friend persuaded me to join Slimming World in May.
I’ve lost 1.5 stone since then and am determined to get down to 10.5 stone. The support and recipes are amazing on some of these Facebook groups. I joined loads to begin with but only really bother with Pinch of Nom now as there’s no arguing, it’s just supportive and friendly.
The Syn Free Vegetarian Scotch Eggs Recipe
Linda McCartney Red Onion & Rosemary Sausages are great. Since we first came across them we’ve discovered that as well as being amazing in their own right they can be used for other things too. Like stuffing, or to make Scotch eggs!
These Syn Free Vegetarian Scotch Eggs, like their meaty counterparts, are great for picnics, or with a fresh crisp salad for lunch. And with only 4 ingredients it’s incredibly easy to make.
Is it a Tweak?
Yes it is. This Syn Free Vegetarian Scotch Eggs recipe uses Smash as a coating, so Slimming World do consider this a tweak.
However, as we are only using a very small amount of Smash here, and we would only ever have this occasionally we don’t bother synning the Smash.
Having said that to syn or not to syn the decision is yours. You weight loss journey is your own, no one elses so if you don’t want to syn the Smash then don’t. We’re not going to criticise or question anyone else decisions.
As always, if using Smash this way affects your weight loss then, you should stop using it this way.
Slimming World have recently given a Syn value to Smash and Instant Mash. You can find out the details here. This recipe uses a very small amount of Smash as a coating so we’ve chosen not to Syn it. Again, the decision is yours whether you do or don’t.
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 Vegetarian Scotch Eggs recipe.
