Gluten-free, dairy-free meals

The vast majority of food I cook these days is both gluten free and dairy free. That sounds like it would be super difficult but I've found there are plenty of yummy meals I can make as well as delicious recipes for baked goods. Of course most of our meals are also vegetarian (and the remainder include some element of seafood). A few people have said to me that they think making vegetarian meals is really difficult - it's definitely not. In fact I find preparing vegetarian meals is easier than cooking with meat.

Anyway, I recently stumbled across a blog where most of the recipes fit in with our dietary requirements. I've tried three recipes out so far and they are all winners in my book and have been added into our repertoire.

The three I've tried so far are :
Chocolate brownie
Don't be put off by the ingredients for this brownie recipe - cross my heart you will love the result!

Banana, date and orange cookies
These cookies have been extremely well received and are perfect for lunchboxes and for tramping snacks.

Creamy lentil soup
Does the thought of lentils put you off? Don't let it. This soup has an amazing flavour and I've made it twice in two weeks. This soup will be a main staple through winter.

These three recipes are just the tip of the ice-berg - many more yummy recipes will be tried out in the next little while.

I'm not going to share the recipes here. Instead I have added links into the amazing Emma's blog - My Darling Lemon Thyme. Emma is a kiwi who is living in Australia - the bonus being that the ingredients are readily available to me. I struggle with recipe blogs from countries further afield sometimes due to lack of availability of ingredients.

Pop by Emma's blog and say Hi (and get cooking!).
