slimming world fakeaway donor kebabThis tastes amazing I kid you not, a real Doner Kebab which is Slimming World compatible, what could be better?

This is called Doner Kebab “Fakeaway” in Slimming World Lingo and is proof that you can make takeaway meals Slimming World friendly and not ruin your diet.

It is a fantastic recipe which you can either do in the slow cooker or an oven and contains lots of herbs and spices and honestly does taste like a real Doner Kebab, OK so you don’t have all the fat of a kebab from a kebab shop but why would you want all that grease anyway :-) Use your HEB for the pitta bread (weight watchers wholemeal pitta bread is a HEB choice) and stuff it with tons of lettuce, tomato, cucumber, onions, cabbage and whatever other salad you want. You can syn some mayonnaise if you want to but without it, this Doner kebab recipe is free on both Extra Easy & Original Plans…………..enjoy!

    I really want to try this recipe but cannot find extra lean lamb mince anywhere! Where did you get yours from?? I’ve only found lean so far and it works out at 3 syns per 100g.

    Just made this for tea tonight and I’ve got to say it’s absolutly excellent, it really does taste like a full fat kebab shop kebab.

    The one thing I’ve missed while doing the SW diet is the kebabs and I now have no need to ever visit a kebab shop again… thankyou.
