1 Sensible Meal
A 600 calorie balanced meal per day.
Examples of a 600 calorie balanced meal:
800g potatoes, peeled and quartered
400g (14oz) good quality pork sausages
1 tablespoon oil
2 red onions, sliced
300ml beef stock, made with 1 beef stock cube
½ teaspoon cornflour
3 teaspoons redcurrant jelly
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
30g low cal margarine for mashing
Cook the potatoes in salted boiling water for 15–20 minutes until tender. Drain and keep warm.
Cook the sausages until golden brown and cooked through.
Meanwhile, heat the oil, add the onions and cook for about 5–10 minutes, stirring occasionally until soft and beginning to turn golden brown. Add the stock and simmer for about 5 minutes until the liquid has reduced by half.
Mix the cornflour with a little water to make a smooth paste and stir into the onion mixture. Bring back to the boil and simmer gently for 1 minute. Stir in the redcurrant jelly and season to taste.
Spoon a couple of tablespoons of mash onto each serving plate and serve with the sausages and red onion gravy.
Add the mustard to the drained potatoes and mash with the milk and margerine.
