Serves 4
Syn free
Ready in about 1 hour 30 minutes

Ingredients

Low-calorie cooking spray
800g lamb leg steaks, visible fat removed, cut into chunks
1 garlic bulb, halved widthways
5 shallots, halved and peeled
2 celery sticks, finely chopped
5 spring onions, trimmed and chopped into 4cm pieces
2 bay leaves
1 sprig of fresh rosemary
500ml chicken stock
25g fresh flat-leaf parsley, finely chopped
4 leeks
800g spring greens, shredded

Method

1 Preheat your oven to 180°C/fan 160°C/gas 4. Spray a large, lidded, non-stick pan with low-calorie cooking spray and place over a medium-high heat. Add the lamb and fry for 1-2 minutes on each side until browned. Transfer to a plate and reduce the heat to medium-low. Add the garlic, shallots, celery, spring onions, bay leaves and rosemary, and season well. Stir, then cover and leave to cook over a medium heat for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.

2 Return the lamb to the pan, pour in the stock, and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for 5 minutes. Stir through the parsley, then transfer to a baking dish.

3 Cut each leek into 4 pieces, then slice each piece in half lengthways, so you have 32 pieces in total. Top the lamb with the leeks, cut side down, and cover with foil. Bake for 1 hour, then remove the foil and bake for a further 15 minutes until the leeks are golden at the edges. When the hotpot has 5 minutes’ cooking time left, boil the spring greens for 2-3 minutes, then drain. Divide the hotpot between 4 plates and serve with the spring greens.

Slimming Tip 1 – Don’t go hungry
If you are hungry you need to eat. Depriving your body of food will just see you miserable and maybe even grabbing the high fat, high sugar foods instead. And that’s really not going to help.

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.

Slimming Tip 3 – Plan Plan Plan
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. If you know you have a night out, that’s fine, just plan… What food will you order? What drinks will you order? And stick to your plan for amazing weight losses.
