Hello and welcome back for another foodie recipe! Today I bring you a slightly different Weight Watchers meal that comes to a grand total of 10 Smart Points per portion, including the rice it’s eaten with.
Prawn Arrabbiata has been a long standing favourite of mine, especially on the colder winter nights. There was always something exciting when mum made it. Although she always used shop bought sauce. This recipe will delight your tastebuds, and is actually really quite cheap to make. The following recipe makes enough to serve 4 people.
- low calorie cooking spray
- 2 small onions, sliced
- 2 cloves garlic, crushed
- 1 finger chilli, chopped, or 3 tsp chilli powder
- 2 tins of chopped tomatoes (2 x 400g)
- 2 tbsp tomato purée
- 2 tbsp dried basil
- 400g frozen cooked and shelled prawns, defrosted
- any vegetables you want to add (eg peppers, carrots, mushrooms etc)
- fresh basil for presentation
- salt and pepper to season
- 280g whole grain long grain rice
- Cook the rice according to the instructions on the packaging.
- In a large pot, spray some cooking spray and fry your onion, garlic, chilli power/chilli, and any of your chosen vegetables that will take longer to cook down.
- Cook these for about 5 minutes, or until the onion is softened.
- Add the chopped tomatoes, tomato purée and basil and allow to simmer for another 5 minutes.
- Tip in your defrosted prawns, and any other vegetables.
- Simmer for 5 or 10 minutes, until the prawns are cooked through and piping hot.
- Serve with the rice, and season to taste with salt, pepper, and basil.
Again, like most of my recipes, this can be adjusted to suit your tastebuds. If you make any changes, please do let me know! I love hearing any changes people make to my recipes.
