This Friday is St George’s Day – a day to celebrate England’s famous dragon-slaying saint in all his glory! At Slimming World, we think there’s no better way to mark the occasion than by serving up a feast of traditional dishes. Here are six slimming-friendly versions of our favourites… 

Satisfying starters

Roasted tomato soup

Kick off your special meal with a bowl of intensely tomatoey soup. A classic crowd-pleasing choice.

Cod and minted pea fish cakes

Many of us might be missing our sunny trips to the coast – but we can bring a taste of the seaside chippy home. The minted peas add a real flavour punch!

Mouth-watering mains

Toad in the hole

Juicy sausages nestled inside Slimming World Yorkshire pudding, with onion rings on top? We call that a guaranteed dinnertime hole in one!

Lentil shepherd’s pie

A vegetarian twist on the ultimate comfort food, this Syn free pie is a fail-safe family-pleaser. It’s a great way to use up that bag or can of lentils in your cupboard, too.

Delicious desserts

Individual rhubarb and ginger crumbles

Who doesn’t love a crumble? Rhubarb is an English favourite – and adding ginger takes the flavour to the next level.
