Thai Green Curry with Lisa Faulkner

People often associate delicious, mouthwatering recipes with piling on the pounds, but it really doesn’t need to be that way. Lisa Faulkner has teamed up with Weight Watchers® to create healthy alternatives to the nation’s favourite party dishes, without compromising on taste.

By making some very small changes to a traditional Thai recipe, Lisa has drastically reduced its ProPoints® values, meaning it can be easily accommodated into your daily allowance.

Lisa says "Thai Green Curries are often laden with calories as they’re full of cream and coconut milk, but I include lots of chicken stock in mine, with only a small amount of low fat coconut milk, which keeps it nice and healthy"
