So here’s my first recipe on my slimming blog. This delicious turkey Bolognese is a weekly staple in our household. We absolutely love it. It’s completely free on EE and suitable for both SP and Red/Original days if served with a low carb alternative – I like it served over cooked broccoli, yum! I hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

Half an onion, finely chopped
Half a carrot, finely chopped
One and a half celery sticks, finely chopped
Half a pack of chestnut mushrooms, finely chopped
2 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
Tsp of sweetener
Half a tbsp of tomato puree

Spray a pan with low cal spray. When warm, add onions, carrots & celery. When the onion is translucent, add the turkey mince and garlic and cook until the meat has browned. Add mushrooms and cook for a few minutes, then add sweetener and tomato puree and cook for a minute more. Add the passata, mixed herbs and crumble in the stock cube, stir well. Season with black pepper to taste and allow to simmer for 20 minutes before serving.
And it really is that simple! It may be free food but it certainly doesn’t taste like it! Enjoy!
