A delicious topping for a tasty jacket potato perfect on Slimming World or other low-calorie diets. Save time and calories by making this healthy baked potato topping for your next easy lunch!



34 cloves of garlic, peeled and minced.

1 red onion, peeled and diced.

400g sweetcorn drained and rinsed.

200g mushrooms, washed and sliced.

1 tsp Salt

1 tsp Pepper

1 tsp Oregano

1 tsp Basil

1 tsp Smoked Paprika


Firstly, dice your onion and garlic, and add them to the pan with a little low-calorie frying spray. Allow them to heat through, and then cover, letting them steam until softened – 1 to 2 minutes.

Add your sweetcorn and mushrooms, mixing thoroughly to ensure the mushrooms are spread evenly throughout the pan.

Reduce the heat to low and simmer, before adding spices. Mix thoroughly to ensure the spices are well distributed.

Allow the mixture to simmer until the mushrooms are fully cooked and tender.

Serve immediately, placing on top of a baked potato. Alternatively, put in an airtight container, allow to cool to room temperature, and freeze to store.
