Tried and Tested
A few years ago I was advised to avoid milk proteins for medical reasons. I’ll spare you the details, but suffice to say I felt a lot better for it. Then more recently I needed to reduce the amount of wheat I ate and as a result I essentially became the world’s worst house guest.
I was already used to cooking without milk, but DH and I had to rethink our meals completely when I needed to avoid wheat as well. It’s taken a while to re-learn – in some cases finding completely new dishes, in others adapting existing favourites.
In the meantime family and friends have asked me for various recipes, so my blog is for them…. and anyone else who needs to cook dairy and gluten-free.
Notes on dietary requirements and my recipes:
My recipes are usually completely dairy free. When needed I use substitutes which are often based on soya and almond.
I tend not to use oat-milk because I eat a lot of oats anyway in my diet and frankly, you can have too much of a good thing.
Most of my recipes do not include gluten. However I can personally tolerate it in small quantities so I am not fastidious about this.
If you are celiac please do make sure that all the ingredients are completely free of gluten.
