Slimming World Mediterranean Magic Recipe Book Review and Giveaway

You may have realised we like to travel a bit and one of the things we love the most is trying new food, Greek is an absolute favourite with all of us with Spanish dishes coming closely behind. Actually we just love food! So i was very very excited to receive a copy of Slimming World's Mediterranean Magic Recipe Book

The book has recipes from..


Spain and Portugal

North Africa



Middle East and Turkey

I love that there are desserts, mains and starters in each section and that the recipes are simple, easy to follow and all have great guidance like whether they are suitable for freezing or if they are SP (that's the boost days for a bigger weight loss) friendly.

It's a lovely hardback book and has lovely pictures in too.

But Oh my days it is jam packed with my favourite recipes and I have had so much fun working my way through some of them , I have to share with you that my absolute favourite is the recipe for Baba Ganoush! I have spend lots of time in Greece and ate lots of what they call Egg Plant Salad, a delicious creamy dip, but Ive only just discovered that elsewhere in the world this is called Baba Ganoush and now I have the perfect syn free simple recipe and partnered with tzatziki and hummus (also slimming world recipes) on a bed of rocket it's my absolute new lunchtime favourite.


We've also tried the Lamb Tagine but with a few Monkeyfooted twists like adding butternut squash and a cup of quinoa and letting it cook in the slow cooker all day. It was truly truly immense, although didn't look amazing it was so nice we had second helpings!
