Slimming Recipes


I love a good fakeaway.  This is the first recipe that is suitable for both a wok and an air fry (I used my Tefal Actifryer).


  • Low calorie cooking spray
  • 350g cooked and cooled long-grain
  • 200g frozen peas
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 large eggs lightly beaten
  • 3 tbsp light soy sauce
  • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped
  • 400g fresh bean sprouts, rinsed
  • 6 spring onions, very finely sliced
  • 6 mushrooms, sliced
  • Leftover roast chicken, shredded OR 4 chicken beasts cooked and shredded
  • tablespoon of sesame oil
  • Low calorie cooking spray
  • 1 onion, peeled and finely chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, peeled and crushed
  • 1cm piece root ginger, peeled and finely grated
  • 1 tbsp curry powder
  • 400g can chopped tomatoes
  • 60ml vegetable stock
  • 2 tbsp sweetener
  • 50g fat free natural fromage frais
  • 1 tbsp of freshly chopped coriander
  • 1 tbsp of freshly chopped mint


Curry Sauce

  1. Spray a pan with low calorie cooking spray and place over a medium heat. Add the onion and garlic and cook until soft. Add the ginger and cook for 1-2 minutes, then add the curry powder and cook for a further 1-2 minutes.
  2. Add the tomatoes, stock and sweetener and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for 12-15 minutes.
  3. Transfer the sauce to a food processor and blend until smooth. Return to the pan, add the fromage frais, coriander and mint and gently heat through before serving (do not boil or the fromage frais will curdle).


  1. To cook in a hot air fryer, add all the veg in the machine with half a tablespoon of sesame oil and cook for 10 mins. When this has cooked add the cooked rice, chicken, soy sauce, egg and the other half of the tablespoon of oil and cook for a further 10 mins then serve.
  2. Spray a wok or large frying pan with low calorie cooking spray and place over a high heat. When it is almost at smoking point, add the cooked rice and stir-fry for about 3 minutes.
  3. Add the peas, stir-fry for 5 minutes and season well. Add the beaten eggs and stir-fry for another minute.
  4. Stir in the soy sauce, bean sprouts, mushrooms and most of the spring onion and cook for 2 minutes or until the eggs have set
