Slimming World SYN FREE Sweet Potato Jambalaya Recipe

I know very little about the origins of Jambalaya to be completely honest. I know it’s a Spanish-French-African rice dish originating from Louisiana (thanks google!), and I know that this recipe is utterly sumptuous and easy to make: Slimming World SYN FREE Sweet Potato Jambalaya Recipe.

To my knowledge Jambalaya (derived from the work ‘jumbled’ I believe from the comments on a Jamie Oliver website recipe) is usually made with chicken, chorizo and / or prawns. But just recently I find myself leaning more towards vegetarian dishes so sweet potato really speaks to me: It’s easy to prepare, satisfying and really tasty – not to mention you can eat them until they come out of your ears on the Slimming World Plan.

As always, there is not gluten contained either.

What’s in the Degustabox September 2015

Looking back on August’s Degustabox review and blog post, I mentioned that I thought August was a busy month.

My word it was. And September has zoomed past in the blink of an eye.

But the end of the month marks two prominent occasions once more.

1. Pay day.
2. Degustabox day!

My Kitchen and I are Waiting for Pay Day – Banana Bread on a Budget

My Kitchen and I are Waiting for Pay Day - Banana Bread on a Budget by katie haydock for life on vista street

Happiness is lots of things.

Little Miss Vista’s smile and giggles. Mr Vista’s kisses when he gets home from work. Family time. Home. Garden… but yesterday…

Happiness was – finding the ingredients to make one of your most favourite things in the cupboard when you are totally skint.

The inspiration came earlier in the day from instagram, and with a little research and creativity, it just so happened I could pull it all together.

Banana bread made with minimal ingredients… without impaired flavour!

AND it’s low fat!

**First pump moment**

I found this recipe in a cook book and sort of mashed it together with a recipe I found on-line so that I can conserve my eggs and butter. I have limited funds and don’t want to use the good stuff early on as it is interesting meal week. You never know when you might need a bit of eggs and butter…

What I used:

225g Plain flour
3 heaped tsp Baking powder
100g Sugar
3 tsp Cinnamon
2 large over-ripe bananas, mashed
75g Vegetable (in weight)
50g Dried prunes

What I did:

Mash the peeled bananas and mix well with oil and sugar.

Mix together the flour, baking powder and cinnamon, and combine well with the wet ingredients.

Chuck the prunes in. You don’t have to use prunes, you can use anything you like… chocolate chips anyone?

Bake in a greased and lined loaf tin. This recipe is vegan and because there isn’t much fat in the mixture it browns very quickly. Bake for 20 minutes, before checking. Cover with foil, if the loaf cake is browning to stop it from burning. Bake for another 40 minutes.

Allow to cool a little before slicing, because if you don’t it crumbles all over the blooming place. Ideally enjoyed slathered with Nutella found lurking at the back of the cereal cupboard.
