How to make Slimming World Carrot Chips (EESP friendly)

For this I use a 300g bag of carrot batons. Pre heat the oven to 180° fan. Line a flat tray (must be flat not edged) with foil. Spray the foil lined tray with your choice of spray oil. Make sure it's suitable for roasting if you are using frylight, as some are only for frying. I use Frylight Olive Oil which has a roasting symbol on the bottle. Place the carrot chips on the tray and spray them with frylight. Put on the TOP shelf of the oven for 30 mins. Turn the chips over half way through roasting. Enjoy!

For this recipe you need; 1 large corgette (or pre packed corgetti) Pesto of your choice King Prawns Garlic Chilli Parmesan Spray a pan with your preferred choice of spray oil. Spiralize your corgette into the pan and add plenty of chilli and garlic (I use frozen chopped for ease). Put on a medium heat. Mean while place your king prawns in a smaller pan with chilli and garlic to your taste. Turn to the lowest heat. Allow the prawns to slowly turn pink, then turn over once. Keeping the heat low to stop the garlic burning. Be sure to not let them overcook. Once your corgetti is cooked (you can cook it as little or as much as you like depending on if you want a crunch or soft corgetti - 5 mins is enough for me). Add in 10g / 1.5 syns of Salca Chilli Pesto. Stir through. Serve the corgetti with the prawns on top and sprinkle with a tbsp of parmesan from your A choice. Enjoy!
