    How to make a low calorie cookie -- with panade?

    When I was a kid there was a show called Remington Steel. In one episode, the man who created the calorie-free chocolate chip cookie was murdered, and all these years later I still think about that cookie. It's the Holy Grail, for me, anyway.

    This is a great way to make a low fat potato bake. Its an easy recipe to assemble but you do need to allow at least an hour for the potatoes to cook through in the oven. This quantity is enough to fill a small baking dish or tin (approx. .5 litres/1 pt capacity). There are approximately 150...

    Recipe Spaghetti with Spinach and Parmesan

    Gloriously green and satisfyingly simple to make, this dish really showcases spinach. For a vegetarian version, use a non-rennet hard cheese in place of Parmesan. Ocado stock a good Italian hard cheese*. For a vegan version use plant milk in place of dairy milk and a vegan Parmesan substitute**...
