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 […]

Veg Curry with Eggs

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. […]

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 […]
