We’re all trying to do fewer food shops at the moment – which means making our veggies stretch as far as possible. And if you’re anything like me, finding exciting ways to make the most of veg is definitely a challenge! So this feels like the ideal time to introduce our fantastically filling bubble and squeak recipe.
After all, these crunchy little cakes were (literally!) invented for using up the veg left over from our Sunday dinners – and they’re a tasty way to finish off any cabbage, Brussels sprouts or spring onions you’ve got in your vegetable drawer. This bubble and squeak recipe is really easy to follow and super flexible, too. So if you’ve got some carrots, peas or broccoli to use, feel free to throw those into the mix as well.
We’ve served our brilliant bubble and squeak cakes with tomatoes, fried eggs and baked beans – but the great thing about this Slimming World recipe is that the possibilities are endless! They’re delicious as a snack on their own, or you could try topping with Syn Free sausages and lean back bacon – or a poached egg as a tasty vegetarian option.
Check out our bubble and squeak recipe and get set for an easy, healthy breakfast, lunch or dinner that’s full of fabulous flavours and totally Free!
