Lunch and dinner are two meals where you can get pretty creative but are often filled with gluten and dairy. With a bit of time to substitute the gluten and dairy for some healthy ingredients, you can make some of the most delicious meals. And, be careful with the veggies. My recipes are all light on the fibre but if you substitute make sure to try something new and then give it a week in case it sits badly.
So first off, this is a gluten free recipe that can be used with normal pasta if you want to. And, for dairy I can call it cow-milk free as it uses a combination of vegan mozzarella cheese and goat cheese. What you will need: one box of gluten-free lasagna noodles (Catelli is my preferred).… Continue reading The best meat lasagna!
The recipe is intended to be used for a batch of spaghetti, or lasagna for instance. You may end up having more than you need, but this sauce freezes well. The process is the same regardless of whether you prefer to have a more chunky sauce or in the end if you prefer to blend… Continue reading Vegetarian Pasta Sauce
This is one of our favourite recipes and has so much flavor! One ingredient you will need to keep at home as a staple is nutritional yeast which we add to the crust for some added buttery/cheesy flavor. If you don’t have this on hand, and can’t obtain it, you can omit it from the… Continue reading Gluten and Dairy Free Shepherd’s Pie with Sweet Potato Crust
This recipe is very easy and really is up to you how many brussels sprouts you would like to use for your meal. Most people who are turned off by brussels sprouts have typically only tried whole sprouts, boiled or roasted to smell like feet. But, these veggies can be made into a pretty darn… Continue reading Pan Roasted Brussels Sprouts (Endo)
What you will need: 2 lbs lean ground beef 1 small onion, chopped finely 3 garlic cloves, minced (or less, if you’re not a garlic fan) 3 tbsp bbq sauce (for the mix) and 1/4 cup bbq sauce for later 3 tbsp dijon mustard 2 tbsp worcestershire sauce 1/2 cup gluten free bread crumps (see… Continue reading Meatloaf with Gluten-free breadcrumbs (endo/UC)
What you will need: 1 eggplant table salt (dont use the good stuff) olive oil 1/2 cup tomato sauce (canned or made fresh) vegan cheese fresh basil pepper to taste crushed garlic (optional) I was interested in sprucing up this recipe, pinned by kaylin’s kitchen (Kaylinskitchen.com) based on Julia Childs’ cookbook, by removing the dairy… Continue reading Eggplant Mini Pizzas (with vegan cheese) (Endo/UC)
Ever feel like adding a little spin on a pasta dish? I did. And I found this recipe and loved it. I claim it as my own now simply because – as always – I made some modifications. Note that this recipe can be made with substitute cheeses if you find good ones. For this… Continue reading Rolled Eggplant with gluten-free Capellini (Endo/UC)
I got on a cabbage kick when I first cut wheat out of my diet. I wanted to make sure that I wasnt replacing wheat with crap, so I looked for very healthy, very pure recipes. Like most soups you make at home, it will last for a long time (the amount, not the shelf… Continue reading Cabbage Soup (Endo/UC)
So I post this with caution. For those of you who are looking for wheat-free alternative pastas, this is certainly an endo-friendly pasta option and luckily does not contain corn. As I described before corn hurts my stomach terribly so I have to been mindful when I try gluten-free pastas. BUT I caution you that… Continue reading Edamame and Mung Bean Fettuccine with Pesto Sauce (Endo)
I took a spin on french lentils and added some curry powder for taste. Sometimes I add sausage to this dish but not always. This is a great endo-friendly meal. Not sure this will jive well for UC as I know lentils would kill me right now. To make this dish all you need are… Continue reading Slightly curried meatless french lentils (Endo)
I have tried eggplant lasagna but wanted to try something new. Instead I worked my way up to zucchini lasagna. If you have ever made traditional lasagna before this is quite similar with the exception of zucchini slices to substitute pasta. Ingredients: 1 can tomato sauce or homemade sauce of your choice 5-6 zucchini 1… Continue reading Zucchini Lasagna with cheese (Endo/UC)
