Mint Choc Protein Balls

I wanted to create something a bit different that used some fresh herbs from my garden, was high in protein so it doesn’t spike your blood sugar level and is totally delicious. Here is the result. They’re quick and easy to make (great to do with the children), are gluten & dairy free and vegan […]

Homemade Baked Beans

I used to love Baked Beans on toast with cheese on top, particularly as a quick, easy meal, but now I prefer to make my own healthier version. Fry some onions, mushrooms & peppers, add garlic and herbs (I like basil, organo & thyme – you can also add some chilli powder or paprika or […]

Veg Curry with Eggs

I love a good Farmer’s Market, particularly for the veg you get. It’s often cheaper, you get more for your money, it’s super fresh and you get varieties that aren’t available in the supermarket. This week I got Purple kale (anything purple fruit & veg wise is excellent), heritage carrots i.e. not just orange!, Purple […]

‘Undone’ Spicy Cottage Pie

I found this recipe many years ago and have adapted it to suit my current dietary needs. It’s both gluten and dairy and absolutely yummy. In fact it’s so good my husband asked me to marry him the first time I served it to him!! It’s also easy to make and contains plenty of veg.

Basic Tomato Sauce

I use this tomato sauce for a wide variety of things such as a base for mince dishes or a sauce for meatballs or mini burgers or pasta. It’s quick and simple to make and easy to add extra veggies to. If you want really disguise veggies you can blitz once ready to incorporate everything. […]

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 […]
