Fast Days don’t need to be all about fancy food and lots of preparation.

Today I tried something I’ve spotted being touted around on the 2:5 facebook page I am a member of.




Paprika roasted tinned new potatoes! Love ’em!

175g with spray oil and sprinkling of paprika, 125 calories!

Served with griddled asparagus (46 cals) and roasted onion (60g, 22 cals) and roasted carrots (140g, 54 cals), Schwartz beef gravy (21 cals) and Tesco sliced topside of beef, 2 slices, 35cals a slice. TOTAL: 366 Calories.  FAST in the bag!

Very easy to prepare.

One tin of new potatoes, drained.  Lay out on a piece of kitchen roll to thoroughly dry.  Place into a baking tray and sprinkle over with half a teaspoon of paprika.  Spray with one calorie oil – I use Groovy Virgin Coconut Spray – which is only 1 calorie per spray.  No need to be too stingy!

Bake in a pre-heated oven (200 degrees) for 30 – 40 minutes, stirring half way through the cooking time.

Try them – you won’t be disappointed!
