Dairy Free

Delicious recipes that have been adapted to exclude dairy ingredients.

Apple and Mixed Berry Blintzes

I am so excited that this recipe turned out as well as it did. I had my nephew specifically in mind while developing it, since like me, he has to avoid dairy and wheat. Blintzes were one of my favorite dishes from childhood; I loved eating them covered in applesauce. […]

 

Spiced Almond Oatmeal

This recipes comes from Alice Hart’s “Vegetarian” cookbook; she drizzles maple syrup over the top but we kept our version naturally sweetened with dates and banana slices. She suggests that the oats can be served raw, but we prefer a hot breakfast. If you don’t have cinnamon sticks, just add […]

 

Celery Root Remoulade

Remoulade is a sauce invented in France that is usually aioli- or mayonnaise-based. In this recipe from Alice Hart’s “Vegetarian” cookbook, the sauce is made lighter by use of vegan yogurt. We had half of a celery root left in our refrigerator from our Simmered Chicken and Vegetables recipe that […]

 

Indonesian Fried Rice

I’ve mentioned before that I adapt recipes to follow a low-FODMAP diet. If this term is new to you, here’s a bit of background. The Low FODMAP Diet was developed by researchers at Monash University. Their research provided evidence that a group of short-chain carbohydrates, named FODMAPs (Fermentable Oligo-saccharides, Di-saccharides, […]

 

Vietnamese Caramel Trout

This Asian-inspired fish dish is super-simple and easy; the sauce is a lovely spice-sweet combo. Since it’s been a while since we’ve cooked anything with brown sugar (we typically opt for coconut sugar, date paste, or omit the sweetener altogether) we went lighter than the recommended amount in the original […]

 

Zucchini Risotto

A few months ago I published a recipe for a Vegan Risotto with mushrooms and peas, based on a recipe in one of my favorite cookbooks, “Run Fast. Cook Fast. Eat Slow.” I used that recipe as inspiration to create a dairy free Zucchini Risotto with dill, fresh rosemary, and […]

 

Veracruz-Style Cod Stew

One of the main things I enjoy about the cookbook, “Tu Casa Mi Casa,” is how it takes me out of my comfort zone of rice, beans, and tacos and enables me to explore a wider array of Mexican cooking. For example, I used to be intimidated to cook fish, […]

 

Cornmeal Hotcakes

There are many reasons to keep your kitchen pantry tidy, including finding hidden food items that you can quickly turn into a meal. I noticed a bag of cornmeal sitting in our pantry, and realized it had been there for more than a year. I sought out a weekend brunch […]

 

Meal Plan / Week 22 August 2019

As I look at this week’s meal plan, it’s obvious that I had Autumn on my mind. It was inevitable, with both of our sons back in school and the sun setting earlier every evening. Our kitchen smelled like a cornucopia of delicious spices like cinnamon, ginger, and cardamom. We […]

 

Apricot Ginger Scones (Dairy-Free)

We absolutely love these scones, which I adapted from a traditional (e.g. included wheat, butter, and sugar) scone recipe in “Bi-Rite Market’s Eat Good Food“. Our entire house smelled divine while they were baking, as the scent of fresh ginger and orange zest wafted from the oven. The scones are […]
