1kg potatoes, peeled and cut into chunks
Low calorie cooking spray
1 large onion, roughly chopped
4 celery sticks, roughly chopped
4 large carrots, peeled and diced
2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
4 large parsnips, peeled and diced
Large bag of spinach, roughly chopped
400ml boiling vegetable stock
150g frozen peas
2 tsp mustard powder
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 tbsp finely chopped fresh parsley, to garnish
Preheat the oven to 220°C/200°C Fan/Gas 7.
Cook the potatoes in a saucepan of lightly salted boiling water for 12-15 minutes or until tender.
Meanwhile, spray a large non-stick frying pan with low calorie cooking spray and place over a medium heat. Add the onion, celery, carrots, garlic, parsnips and spinach and stir-fry for 10 minutes, until the vegetables are starting to colour but are still crunchy. Add 350ml of the stock, the peas and the mustard powder and stir well.
Season to taste and spoon into a medium-sized pie dish.
Drain the potatoes and return them to the saucepan along with the remaining stock. Mash until smooth then spoon on top of the vegetables, smooth with a fork and bake for 25-30 minutes or until golden.
Scatter over the parsley and serve hot.
Tip: For extra luxury, stir 60g grated reduced fat Cheddar-style cheese into the mash and add 2½ Syns per serving. (If using cheese this recipe would not be suitable for vegans.)

Slimming Tip 2 – Fill up on Super Slimming Foods
Now no food has the power to actually slim you down, but the foods with the least calories for the most amount of filling power will cut your calorie intake without you even realising.
These foods what to take priory over other foods, by filling your plate with at least 1/3 of the Super Slimming Foods will see the lbs literally drop off.

Fail to plan is planning to fail. Make a solid plan not only for the foods and meal you are going to enjoy but also what might get in your way.
