Thai Green Curry with Lisa Faulkner

9 April 2012

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"
