Sweet and sour sauce

So a good old family favourite that everyone thinks they can’t have on slimming world. Well you can but it is still going to cost you a couple of syns! This is just for the sauce recipe, if you are adding meat or a meat substitute you want to add about 500-600g for the amount this sauce makes!

1 tablespoon soy sauce

1 tsp each grated ginger and garlic

1 tsp cornflour (0.5 syn please double check your syns and brands)

1tsp tomato puree

200ml water

3 tbsp ketchup (3 syns double check your brand though)

fresh cut pineapple (about a good handful in bitesize chunks)

1 small red and green pepper (bitesize chunks)

1 small white onion (bitesize chunks)

  1. Get a small pot hot and spray with cooking spray, when nice and hot add your red and green pepper and onion and stir fry until they just start to soften.
  2. Add your garlic and ginger and stir fry for 30 seconds or until it becomes fragrant.
  3. Add the rest of your ingredients and stir thoroughly until all combined.
  4. Cook until it starts to thicken.

That is how simple it is to make your own sweet and sour sauce! I hope you at least give this a go!

Love Emily
