As most of you know, we don’t just provide you with great, carb-free pasta, noodle and rice replacements – we give you loads of great recipes to use with them! Konjac doesn’t have much flavour of its own, but is great at absorbing other flavours – so while you can use any Slim products in place of regular pasta, noodles and rice, our own recipes are formulated to add that extra punch and balance out flavours.
We’ve got a whole recipe section on our website, plus a great platform on the Slim Hub to share your own! But our cookbook, Cook Yourself Slim, takes things to another level, with tons more great recipes, weekly meal plans, culinary wisdom and even exercises to boost your fitness and slim journey. Of course, not all of you have Cook Yourself Slim (though you can find it on our website, and even get it free with some of our great offers) so we’re going to share a special Cook Yourself Slim recipe on here every month!
This time, we help you spice your summer up with our Prawn & Chilli Pasta.
