Healthy Slimming World Vegetarian Recipes

This is how you can you shop as a vegetarian following Slimming World on a budget.

It may seem pretty obvious, but meal planning will not only save you time but a lot of money as well.

Start by writing down every single ingredient you throw away. So for example, if you run out of pasta, then that gets written down.

Something like this magnetic meal planner and shopping list is good, as it sticks to your fridge. You could use a simple notepad. This works well if you like going back to look at past week’s meal plans for inspiration.

Another thing that’s great about meal planning is that less food goes out of date.

It’s best to shop weekly if you can.

This is because if you get bored, then you aren’t stuck with a fridge full of food going off that you won’t use and kids taste change.

Shopping at a discounter is a great idea as while the food isn’t branded, it still contains the same syn value.

If you prefer to shop online then make sure you look at ohMyDosh first, as this could save you £100s off your shopping bill.

16. Breakfast Potatoes

This does take about 40 minutes to cook but is a really filling breakfast for the whole family. You can use your air fryer to cook your potatoes or the oven.

Start by setting the oven or air fryer to 185 degrees. Cut the potatoes into quarters, this helps them cook quicker. Add the potatoes to a bowl with the Paprika, Salt, Oregano and pepper. With a spoon, stir all the ingredients together so the potatoes are covered.

Then, cut the mushrooms into quarters, all the frozen peppers, frozen onions and a handful of spinach.

Spray it all in the pan with some low fat cooking spray.

If you are using stock, then add it now to the deep pan. If you are using your air fryer, you probably don’t need the stock.

You can eat this with eggs or with your cooked breakfast.

17. Toast

You can have anything on toast. You can have tomatoes, banana, cheese or eggs.

18. Hashbrown Frittata

100g frozen peppers

Start by whisking the eggs in a bowl. Then add the rest of the ingredients and stir well.

In a deep frying pan, spray the bottom with some low cal spray then add. Fry for a few minutes until the eggs are all cooked through.

19. Baked Eggs

This is a really easy breakfast recipe that is very filling. You can add pretty much anything to this to make it yummy.

It does take about 25 minutes to cook but is worth it. This recipe makes two.

100g frozen onion

6 tomatoes

1 tsp tomato paste

1 clove of garlic

50g spinach

100g vegetable stock

2 eggs

Start by pre-heating your oven to 180 degrees. Add the garlic, tomatoes and onions to a pan and fry lightly. Add the tomato paste and boil until it looks like a sauce.

Stir in the spinach for a minute or two.

Using two small deep dishes, add the sauce then crack an egg in the middle.

Add to the oven and cook for around 15 minutes if you are looking for a soft runny yolk.

20. Pan Oat Pancakes

This is a really easy no flipping pancake recipe that you can make and chuck in the oven while you get ready.

You can add any fruit to this at all. Our kids favourites are bananas and frozen mixed berries.

150g plain fat free yogurt

2 eggs

5g cinnamon

1 tsp of vanilla extract

200g frozen berries

100g banana

Start by pre-heating your oven to 180 degrees.

Blend the porridge oats till they are small, as this gives you soft no lump pancakes.

Add the baking powder, salt and cinnamon to the mix.

Then add the egg, vanilla and yoghurt and put this with the oat mixture. Leave it all to sit together for about 15 minutes as this lets the oats suck it all in.

In a small baking tray, add some baking paper, and put the mixture in. Add your fruit at this point by sprinkling it on the top.

Add to the oven and cook for 20-25 minutes until lightly golden brown on the top.

Let it sit for a few minutes before you cut as it’s very hot.

Read how to make our chickpea curry here.

Cook time for this simple chickpea curry is about 20 minutes depending on how you like your chickpeas. We like ours really soft so tend to wait until the liquid has reduced quite a lot. If you like your curry spicy then you could add some curry powder or red pepper.

To help make this creamy you could add yogurt as well as coconut milk. You could also add a dash of lime juice. If you are using the slow cooker then we would suggest you make the paste as below and then add everything to the slow cooker.

Put it on high heat for 6 – 8 hours as the liquid does need to reduce.

For the paste:

2 tbsp oil 5p

100g frozen onion 25p

5g dried chilli 5p

9 garlic cloves 25p
