EVERYDAY EASY
Serves 4
❆ (pork and mushroom sauce only)
Ready in about 35 minutes
Syns per serving: FREE SP

Ingredients

3 large carrots, peeled and cut into chips

1 celeriac, peeled and cut into chips

Low-calorie cooking spray

750g pork fillet, visible fat removed, sliced into 2cm medallions

2 garlic cloves, sliced

400g white button mushrooms, (halved if large)

2 red chillies, deseeded and finely chopped

100ml balsamic vinegar

100ml vegetable stock

200g kale, roughly chopped

Method

1 Preheat your oven to 220°C/fan 200°C/gas 7. Spread the carrot and celeriac chips on a large, non-stick baking tray in a single layer and spray with low-calorie cooking spray. Season and bake for 25 minutes, or until crisp at the edges and golden.

2 After the chips have been cooking for about 10 minutes, spray a large, non-stick frying pan with low-calorie cooking spray and place over a medium-high heat. Season the pork and brown for 1-2 minutes on each side, then remove from the pan. Spray the pan with a little more low-calorie cooking spray and add the garlic, mushrooms and chillies. Stir-fry for 2-3 minutes.

3 Add the vinegar and stock. Return the pork to the pan and cook for a further 5 minutes, or until the sauce is thick and sticky and the pork is cooked through.

4 Boil the kale for 1 minute and drain well. Serve with the pork and mushroom sauce, root vegetable chips and a twist of black pepper.

Add in Healthy Extras®
To help provide a good balance of nutrients, enjoy two measured portions of milk or cheese each day – your Healthy Extra ‘a’ choices.

Choose your Syns®
Foods and drinks that pose a risk to your weight loss – those high in fat or sugar, as well as alcohol – can be enjoyed as carefully counted Syns. We recommend you plan between 5 and 15 Syns into your day (see the bottom of the next page for some ideas).

Make simple swaps
To help protect your weight loss, choose the leanest meats and trim off any visible fat – cut the white bits off bacon and remove skin from poultry. Dry-fry or cook with low-calorie cooking spray rather than fat or oil, switch sugar for sweetener, and swap cream and crème fraîche for fat-free natural yogurt or plain quark.
