No Count Kedgeree

No Count Kedgeree

This was amazing with such a variety of flavours.  It probably doesn’t need the egg but then it wouldn’t be kedgeree:-)

Ingredients (serves 4):

  • 4 skinless salmon fillets (cut into thinnish pieces)
  • 200g brown rice
  • 4 medium eggs
  • 1 onion (thinly sliced)
  • 1 green pepper (thinly sliced)
  • 16 cherry tomatoes (halved)
  • 60g split red lentils
  • 3 tsp mild curry powder
  • 1 tsp ground turmeric
  • 500ml fish stock

Method:

  1. Cook the rice separately – I usually boil brown rice for 30 – 40 mins so it’s quite soft.
  2. Boil the eggs for 7 – 8 mins.
  3. Spray a wok or deep frying pan with Frylight and cook the onion and pepper for 5 mins.
  4. Stir in the curry powder and turmeric.
  5. Add 400ml of the stock, as well as the tomatoes and lentils, and simmer for 10 mins.
  6. Add the fish and season.  Add the remaining 100ml of stock if needed.  Simmer for another 10 mins, or until the fish is cooked.
  7. Stir in the cooked rice and serve.  Top each serving with an egg cut into quarters.

  1. I made this recipe this week swapping the salmon for smoked haddock and it was so filling and delicious. I think the addition of lentils is genius and the tomatoes helped to keep it beautifully moist. It will be a regular from now on. Thank you!

    1. Thank you Lynne, I’m really glad you you enjoyed this recipe. I do like to add pulses when I can as they help to make meals extra filling. Hope you have a good weekend and keep warm in this cold weather, Helen xxxxx

  2. Hi Helen
    Thank you for getting back to me.
    I was just wondering do you have 3 meals and a dessert everyday. I joined ww sp and I put weight on. I used to use slimming world and I lost 4 stone but I moved house and I found it hard to find a group again so I joined ww.
    I put weight on about 10 pound in the last 6 weeks but I’ve been on holiday twice so I thought no count looked very similar to the way I was eating before.
    I shall give it my best shot no more holidays 😀

    1. Hi Jo, yes I have three meals a day and one dessert. However, I only have sandwich thins/wraps for lunch 2 or 3 times a week and choose carb-free options on the other days. If you find the weight is not coming off, then I’d have fruit and low fat natural yogurt as a dessert on alternate days. Try to eat lots of veg/salad too as that does keep you fuller for longer. I hope you had a couple of fab holidays:-) Helen xxx
