If you’re on the hunt for a dinner recipe that you and your family will love, that won’t add to your syn count for the day, then look no further! Using one of your Healthy Extra A portions for the day, this recipe is syn free. 

It serves six people, so although there is one tiny little syn from the cornflour, it works out at less than a quarter of a syn per portion and therefore can be counted as syn free!

Notes

Syn free on Slimming World.

The full mixture does contain 1 syn for the cornflour, however when divided between six the syns are negligible and can be counted as syn free.

Syn values correct at time of writing. PLEASE DO NOT SCREENSHOT THIS RECIPE - share using the share buttons instead.

    I never thought of adding pulled pork to mac and cheese. What a great idea for making mac and cheese into an easy one pan dinner! I bet I could add some broccoli to the same pot too without having to fix a side. Love this for a winter comfort food meal.
