You can have your (chocolate) cake & eat it!

This is one of my favourite sweet treat recipes. It’s moist, light (crumbly) & totally delicious. The best bit is that if you don’t tell anyone that there is no flour or butter in the brownies they don’t know and they will certainly never guess it’s made with beans!! So not only is it dairy […]

Shortbread

Who doesn’t love a good shortbread? It’s one of those things that I’d given up on being both gluten- and dairy-free. So, I set about experimenting until I found a recipe that works and tastes delicious. These two recipes are the result. One is gluten-free made with butter (for those who can tolerate butter), the […]

Who needs mince pies!

If you’re dairy and gluten free, Christmas can look awfully gloomy. Everyone else is scoffing delicious goodies and you have to sit and watch. Or at least you used to. There are so many good options and alternatives out there now that you don’t need to be left out any more. Just look round most […]

Breakfast Bites – GF DF EF

So many people love my Bhaji Bites, but have asked for a sweet version, so here it is. Perfect for breakfast, for a picnic, after dinner or as an after school snack for the kids. Why not let the kids have a go at cooking them as well. Because they’re made from gram flour (chickpea […]

Banana Bread – GF DF EF

I do love cake (I mean who doesn’t?!). But, when you’re gluten free, dairy and even egg free cake becomes something that tends to be left out. Having said that, more and more cafes are offering gluten free options and dairy free is up and coming but unless there is a vegan offering egg free […]

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.
