Hi guys,

I have a recipe - it's for a sort of gravy. It's free on green and it tastes brilliant with mashed potatoes.


200g tin of baked beans
1 Medium onion, sliced (or chopped)
2 tsp of beef bovril made up with hot water
1 tsp of worcestershire sauce (optional)
1 tsp of flavour enhancer (or any herb of your choice)
1 tsp of all purpose seasoning
Half a tsp of garlic seasoning


Add the herbs to the chopped onion and fry the mixture in frylight. Once the onions are soft, place them in a small baking tin. Cover the onions with the baked beans. Add the bovril mix and put in the oven (220 degrees C) for about 20 minutes or until the mixture has thickened slightly.

You can have this with 'bovril potatoes' - par boil some potatoes and place on a baking tray sprayed with frylight. Spread little bits of chicken flavoured bovril (right from the jar) onto the potatoes and spray with frylight. Bake until golden brown - they taste lovely.

Zap in a blender until smooth and put in a round 8in cake tin after squrting with some fry light and cook on 190/gas5ish for about 40mins. turn out and cool while mixing together a tub of quark with loads of sweetener and a little vanilla essence and when the cake is cool spread evenly over the top. Decorate with fresh slices of strawberry.

This may sound funny but I promise that the chickpeas magically turn into flour somehow
so try it, you don't know what you are missing if you don't
Is this really so low in syns? I have read a few things on different sites that say you have to syn it because you are using the chickpeas as a flour substitute> It is very tasty though
