With England bowing out in the World Cup’s group stage for the first time since 1958, and Andy Murray’s defence of his Wimbledon title getting underway, it seemed fitting that we go for something Classically British this week. And so we have our first ever Guest Spot at TidyMunch – it’s from Nell, and is her latest take on a familiar favourite from my childhood.

Since starting this blog, it’s safe to say I’ve put on a pound or two. Nothing drastic, but I do have a propensity towards the more calorific dishes, and I’m not renowned for willpower or portion control. When trying to perfect recipes, it will probably come as no surprise to hear that I’ve generally eaten each dish twice in the week it featured.

People often have the wrong idea of what they consider “diet food”, believing it to be bland and unfulfilling. They may be surprised to find that this King Prawn Saag recipe from Weight Watchers won’t disappoint on either flavour or heat.
If you’re familiar with Weight Watchers’ pro-points system, the entire recipe is only 5 (yes 5) points! If you’re more of a Slimming World kind of person, this would be free on an Extra Easy day.
