Here is another one.

2 Syns for the whole recipe

1 can of chickpeas (boiled for about 15 minutes before making the hummus)
Juice of one lemon (can put a little zest in too)
Salt to taste
3 tsp. FF yoghurt
1 grated clove of garlic
1 tsp. olive oil

Blend all the ingredients together, until creamy

I've just looked those up.Some lovely lunch ideas. You could have some chicken with them.

Syns per serving:Free

Serves 4

Ingredients

2 large white potatoes, cooked and mashed to a firm consistency with no butter or milk
1 red onion, diced
large bag of frozen chopped vegetable mix (sweetcorn, broccoli, carrot, cauliflower)
2 tbsp curry powder (use mild, medium or hot to suit your own taste)
3-4 tbsp fat free yogurt
1 egg, beaten
Low calorie cooking spray

Method

Pre heat the oven to 200C/180C Fan/Gas 6. Place the mashed potato, diced onion and defrosted vegetables into a bowl and combine thoroughly.
Stir the curry powder into the yogurt and add this to the vegetable mix and stir thoroughly.
Beat the egg and add it to the mixture, stirring constantly. The mix should still be quite firm, but if it's too runny add more vegetables.
Line a baking tray/wire rack with baking paper to prevent the pakoras from sticking, and spoon the mixture onto the tray in tablespoon sized ''dollops''.
Spray with low calorie cooking spray and bake for approximately 30-40 minutes - or until firm on the outside and golden brown
Allow to cool slightly so that the pakoras firm up.

Will give it some thought for some free options, but this is what I have for lunch sometimes:

Uncle Ben's Rice Time (all flavors) - 1.5 Syns on EE & Green
Pasta Potshot - 1/2 Syn
Tesco Healthy Living Chicken Salad, 165g pot - 0.5 Syns on EE & Original / 3.5 Syns on Green

The Uncle Ben's Rice Time's aren't 1.5 syns for all flavours... The rice itself is 1 syn, but then you are looking at between 4.5 to 7 syns for the sauce.
Sweet & Sour is 5, Chilli is 4.5, Spicy Tikka Masala is 4.5, Korma is 7.

I was gutted when they announced that in group they were ideal lunches for me!

Wow, thanks for posting, these look lush! And super cheap too. Will be giving them a try very soon.

Defo trying the pakora bites!! Thank you

I made the hummus today - tastes so good and it was really easy to make, I added a bit of chilli to spice it up a bit (but I think that's just me!)

Well looking forward to lunches now!

Thank you!

There is a recipe in this months SW magazine for free guacamole - you use peas instead of avocado, chilli, garlic and onions I think (can find the recipe if you like). That would make a nice dip, maybe with some potato wedges (although maybe not cold). Or something healthier like carrot sticks or celery.

My absolute favourite for the office is cold, free Pasta & Sauces.

I have a big prepping/cooking session, roast loads of veg (peppers onions, mushrooms, courgettes etc) & open freeze them, then bag em up, that way I can add handfuls to the pasta. Same with chicken cubes, ham chunks, tuna, etc, I freeze everything in small chunks, then just grab a handful, & chuck it in! Great for pizzas, frittatas, omelettes etc too. Really cuts down on time and so easy.

Great way to keep SW chips too, do a mass quantity, open freeze, then bag, then just take out what you need. Treat just like frozen bought wedges or chips.
