I found myself in an unusual predicament last night... I was home alone and had to fend for myself in the kitchen. Anyone who knows me knows that this pretty much sums me up:

So I wandered into Tesco after work and I was actually quite excited heading off on a little cooking adventure. My last adventure lead to me making a stir fry that you wouldn't feed to pigeons (vom) so it ended up in the bin and I had porridge for dinner. I picked myself up Dee's Organic Spicy Bean Burger, some Slimbos and a Butternut Squash and headed off with a dinner in mind.
Dee's Spicy Bean Burgers - 2 Burgers for €3.99 in Tesco
Pat The Baker Slimbos - €1.69 (for 6)
I peeled, de-seeded and chopped my butternut squash into chip-like shapes, then with a splash of oil and a generous sprinkle of Hot Chilli Powder, Mixed Herbs and Salt, threw them in the oven for 25 minutes at 200 degrees.
Butternut Squash Chips
The end result was DELICIOUS (if I may say so myself):
1 x Slimbo = 3 Propoints
1 x Burger = 4 Propoints
Butternut Squash Chips = 1 Propoint
Lettuce & Tomato = 0 Propoints
Dinner: 8 Propoints
Satisfaction Level: Delightfully stuffed, felt like proper indulgence without the guilt.
Using the Nutritional Information on the pack, one of Dee's Spicy Bean Burgers works out at 4 Propoints, but 2 work out at 7 propoints. There was more than enough in the one burger especially considering I jam packed it with lettuce and tomato. You could also add a squeeze of BBQ or Ketchup for an extra point if you wanted but the Burger was juicy and spicy enough to carry it without the sauce.
I will definitely be revisiting Dee's products. Here comes the best part, all of the products in Dee's range are gluten, dairy, eff, soy, wheat and GMO free. You can check out her range here: http://dees.ie and they are available in all Tesco stores. Veg Pots and Burgers are available in selected SuperValu and Superquinn stores and in Irish Health stores.
