Syns per serving: FREE
800g floury potatoes, such as Maris Piper or King Edward, peeled and sliced into 0.5cm-thick rounds
8 lean lamb leg steaks, visible fat removed, cut into large chunks
3 large carrots, sliced
Low-calorie cooking spray
2 large onions, thinly sliced
250ml hot beef or chicken stock
2 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp sweet smoked paprika
3 tbsp tomato purée
1 level tsp cornflour mixed with 2 tsp cold water
Chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley, to serve
Boiled or steamed green beans, to serve
1 Preheat your oven to 160°C/fan 140°C/gas 3. Layer the bottom of a large casserole dish with half the potatoes. Layer over the lamb and carrots, and season well.
2 Spray a non-stick frying pan with low-calorie cooking spray and place over a medium heat. Add the onions and cook for 6-8 minutes, or until softened. Add the stock, cumin, cinnamon, paprika, tomato purée and cornflour mixture. Season and bring to the boil, stirring constantly.
3 Remove from the heat and pour into the casserole dish. Top with an overlapping layer of the remaining potatoes, cover and bake for 1 hour 30 minutes.
4 Remove the lid and increase the temperature to 200°C/fan 180°C/gas 6. Spray the potatoes with low-calorie cooking spray and bake for a further 15 minutes, or until the top is golden. Scatter over the parsley and some freshly ground black pepper, and serve with the beans.

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.
