Redcurrant Sauce

As a counterpoint to the Baked Veggie loaf, I created this spicy Redcurrant Sauce. This would also go well with grilled or roasted meat as an alternative to traditional mustards etc. This recipe is gluten free, dairy free, vegan, vegetarian and quick and simple to make. If you have any left over it will keep […]

Baked Veggie Loaf

A friend of mine, who is vegetarian, came for Christmas dinner. I didn’t want to trot out something safe nor did I want to do a standard nut roast. So having looked at a few different recipes I created this veggie loaf. It is quite crumbly when just out of the oven, but tastes great, particularly with […]

Flatbread

Being both gluten and dairy free can make life a little more challenging on the food front at times. One of the biggest things is the lack of bread type foods. After some experimenting I have created a flatbread recipe that works well for dipping in things or to go with soup. This is very […]

Sugar Free Cinnamon Stars (Zimtsterne)

Zimtsterne (Cinnamon Stars), are a favourite gluten and dairy free treat at this time of the year in Germany. Unfortunately, whilst they are delicious they are very high in sugar. As part of the work I do at the Alliance for Natural Health we decided to do an experiment recently to see how the addition of […]

Coconut Pancakes

Super quick, easy to make (only two ingredients) and totally delicious. I serve these with stewed apples (with raisins & cinnamon), some sunflower & pumpkin seeds and topped with coconut cream. These can be served at any time of the day and make just as good a supper as breakfast. They are so quick to […]

Pumpkin ‘Bread’

This year I grew a pumpkin. Admittedly it wasn’t a very big pumpkin, but I was determined to use it to make something nice and this is what I came up with – Pumpkin ‘Bread’. This recipe is gluten free and can be dairy free and egg free (so vegan), I’ve given you options to […]

Chicken Stir Fry

A super easy, chicken stir fry recipe using ingredients from your storecupboard and whatever veggies you have in the fridge. Serve with either egg noddles, rice noodles (gluten free) or rice of choice (gluten free) and a green salad.

Protein ‘Porridge’

If you’re trying to reduce the amount of grains in your diet, this protein breakfast ‘porridge’ is just the thing. Once you’re comfortable with the basic recipe play with the ingredients and make different flavours. The nuts and seeds in this recipe provide plenty of good fats and protein to give you a good start […]

Squash & Harissa Dip

A yummy dip to make the most of all the different squashes and pumpkins that are available at this time of year. The recipe states butternut squash, but you could use any available squash in its place. You could also make this using ground cumin, coriander & chilli for a change. If you’re dairy free […]

Spicy Coconut Sweet Potato Wedges

I had these at a couple of events over the weekend and they are delicious. They work well on their own, with a variety of salads & dips, definitely with avocado and would work equally well as a side with chicken or fish. This recipe uses curry powder, but you could easily substitute this for […]
