Eton mess...

I had some strawberries left over from our Royal Wedding picnic, and as well as just eating them as they are (yum) I decided to turn them into a delicious pudding.

I also got a bit bored and decided to do some baking - I'd been having a flick through my copy of Delia's Vegetarian Collection (I love Delia) and spied a recipe for Scottish shortbread. I had all the ingredients except semolina, but I decided to replace the semolina with fine cornmeal, and it worked perfectly.

Believe it or not, my Eton mess was completely fat free - I just crumbled a pre-made meringue nest into a bowl, added some sliced strawberries, and stirred in a dollop of fat-free Greek yogurt. Yum! Obviously the addition of the gorgeously crumbly shortbread made it slightly less virtuous, but you've got to have a treat on a Bank Holiday weekend, haven't you!
