Hairy Dieters Week 3

I only cooked 2 meals from the Hairy Dieters book as i’ve been experimenting with my own low calorie meals, including this lovely baked frittata and was a bit naughty and went for a curry on Thursday.

So this week’s recipes were the spicy vegetable stew and the crispy baked chicken. I served the spicy veg stew with some rice so that added some extra calories to the one in the book, I also replaced the aubergine with a couple of mushrooms as the shop didn’t have any aubergine. It was really nice but could have done with a bit more spice, so next time I’ll be adding extra chilli of some sort, maybe freshly sliced.

The crispy chicken was ok, but not my favourite recipe from the book so far, the inside was juicy and moist but i just felt the crumb didn’t add much flavour, not sure why mine didn’t seem to look as golden as the photos in the book.

This week i’ll be cooking the fish stew and sweet and sour chicken, along with my favourite bolognese and maybe another omelette or frittata as we’ve got lots of eggs.
