Let’s face it, it just wouldn’t be Christmas without a roast dinner. Turkey, roast potatoes, stuffing, Brussels sprouts – we want the full festive shebang! Luckily, it’s surprisingly simple to make a slimming-friendly roast with a few tiny tweaks – and this delicious dinner has some extra-fancy flourishes…

Tips for the perfect turkey dinner

  • Turkey is a Free Food (just as long as you remember to take the skin off after cooking), so you can enjoy as much as you like.
  • Roasting your potatoes and veggies in low-calorie cooking spray is a great way to transform a traditional Christmas dinner into something slimming-friendly and just as tasty! You can put all your veggies into one tray (with a sprinkling of rosemary and garlic for an extra boost of flavour), saving you washing-up and some much-needed oven space.
  • Top it all off with our deliciously rich roasted onion gravy. Like our handy oven-ready roasties, you can pick up this gravy readymade from the Slimming World Food Range at Iceland.
