It’s British Pie Week – which means a big comfort food cook-off is on the cards… Whatever your pie preference, we’ve got you covered with our tasty, slimming-friendly versions of your favourites – just add mushy peas (and maybe a portion of Slimming World chips?) for the pie-fect plate!

Potato-topped pies

While you absolutely can have pastry pies on the Slimming World plan, choosing a potato-topped one can keep the dish really low in Syns or, even better, Free. That’s because potatoes are on our list of fantastic Free Foods, which can be eaten in unlimited amounts, so there’s no weighing, no measuring and no worries about eating to satisfy your appetite.

Top tip: If you fancy a tasty twist, swap spuds for mashed sweet potatoes, butternut squash or celeriac instead

Pastry-topped pies

For the pie-purists who love a pastry top, we’ve got the ideal pie for you to try. Choose a lattice-top for a lighter pie – or plump for a proper pastry lid… the choice is yours!

Steak pie

If you fancy a change, replace the beef with skinless chicken breast, or leave the meat out completely (you could add cubes of peeled potato or sweet potato instead).

Deliciously Free side dishes

Mushy peas

Almost all vegetables – including mushy peas – are Free Foods, so you can add as much to your plate as you like.

Potatoes cooked without fat are also a Free Food. Chipped, boiled, baked, mashed or roasted… the choice is yours!
