Slimming World – Syn Free Snacking – Garlic and Chilli New Roasties

I don’t and will never claim to be a food/cookery blogger but I really have to share these beauties with you.

Let’s start by setting the scene girls round for a few drinks, normally I would crack open the wine and Doritos, Kettle chips etc and an array of dips and max out my calorie intake in minutes as crisps and dips or cheese and biscuits are my favorite things to eat .

No more!

I know that if  I have the girls over  I will max out my syns on vodka but with slimline bitter lemon but  it is always worth it.

Slimming World – Syn Free Snacking – Garlic and Chilli New Roasties


Shopping List:

Bag of baby spuds -I love Charlotte baby potatoes but it’s up to you.  I think the smaller the better.

Lazy chilli

Lazy garlic

Seasalt and Black Pepper

Fry light

Lets do it:

Par boil potatoes in a saucepan. Drain and if you want really crispy edges bash them up a bit (this is a technical term for shaking them up a bit in colander so they have rough edges)

Put them in a roasting tray and coat with Fry Light.

Then add in some chilli and garlic. I don’t think there are any hard and fast rules to how much of each I usually throw in a teaspoon of each, though I am a bit heavy handed when it comes to the chilli!

Sprinkle with sea salt and black pepper. Mix through so that each of the potatoes are coated with the oil and seasoning combo and put in the oven.

I am a gas mark girl, so usually gas mark 5  (190°C).   I seem to cook everything on 5.  Leave them to magic themselves into perfect balls of chilli and garlic heaven -20 minutes is usually enough.

You could also make potato wedges or chips in the same way.

Totally syn free snacking – gets a thumbs up from me.

Have a go and let me know how you get on or share your variations with me.
