This Chicken Roulade, Clove and Sage Onions, Chicken Crackling and Crispy Roast Potatoes dish is my modern interpretation of traditional roast chicken like my Grandmother used to serve when we were children, and is a sponsored post for Countdown.  It is dairy, egg and nut free and very easily adapted to be gluten free.  It is an awesome dish to pull out for a special date or dinner party or if you just like a bit of a challenge 🙂

Gluten Free Cornflake Crusted Chicken

This Gluten Free Cornflake Crusted Chicken is super crunchy and is also dairy free, egg free, and nut free.  I used Hubbards gluten free cornflakes, but anything crunchy will do!  I served it with steamed rice, veges and a spicy soy sauce (granted, the sauce wasn’t a huge hit with the kids haha but I really enjoyed it!)

Gluten, Dairy and Egg Free Chicken Tacos with Pear Salsa

I was lucky enough to get some dairy free cheddar cheese from Angel Food last week and we’ve been trying it in all sorts of places I’ve been missing cheese, like Baked Potatoes, Pizza and Tacos.  It works pretty much like regular cheese, the only difference really was I found I needed to heat it a bit higher/or for longer to melt it.  No big deal at all.

Egg and Dairy Free Dumpling Soup

Yum

dinner | September 20, 2016 | By

This Egg and Dairy Free Dumpling Soup is made from a chicken broth base with lots of fresh vegetables.  For those who are gluten free, I’ve added a wheat free option which I made for my middle daughter who is allergic to wheat on top of lots of other foods. It’s also a really fun meal for the kids to help with..you might want to check the sealing of the dumplings though before cooking….you will thank me later! One of our favourite family meals is Dumplings, so I make lots and keep half for the next night. We will have them in a broth the first night then boiled and pan fried the next with rice and steamed veges, so it feels like we’ve had two quite different meals.

Crispy Roasted Pork Belly with Orange Caramel Sauce

Yum

dinner | August 25, 2016 | By

Anyone who knows me well knows I am a mad lover of anything crispy pork belly….I served this Crispy Roasted Pork Belly with Orange Caramel Sauce alongside rice and an Asian style salad courtesy of some amazing organic vegetables and fruit I was given by Just Organic to review.  The zinginess of the salad is a really good match for the fat in the pork, and I love all the different textures 🙂 This is dairy, egg, nut and gluten free and can easily be adapted to be soy free too.

Asian Spiced Duck

Yum

dinner | April 7, 2016 | By

This Asian Spiced Duck with Rice and Chinese Orange Sauce is everything I love about Duck: melt-in-the-mouth, juicy, sticky, and flavoursome.  It’s also Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Egg Free and Nut Free.  My middle girl is also soy-free so I do a plain roasted duck breast for her. She’s fine with that as she’s not at all adventurous as she has some serious food aversion issues:(  But you could just leave the soy out if it’s a problem and glaze it with the orange sauce.

dairy free venison with crunchy potatoes and herb sauce

Finding it difficult to come up with new and interesting Dairy,Egg and Gluten free dinner ideas?  Venison has been a life-saver in our house with everyone allergic to beef and 2/3 of my children allergic to lamb as well.  It isn’t the cheapest, but it’s so yum and really tender if cooked right.  We generally have it once or twice a week and my eldest daughter who is wheat ok loves it cold on homemade crackers with hummus underneath which is great if we have leftovers…which is pretty much never haha.

gluten free moroccan chicken recipe

I’ve been tomato, egg, dairy, peanut and corn free for what seems like an absolute age while I’ve been breastfeeding my 12 month old who is allergic to those things (citrus, kiwifruit and pineapple is a no-go for her too, but thankfully she seems ok with them through breastmilk)…but she is either growing out of these allergies or not feeding enough to be affected by me eating them…but whatever, I’m pretty excited to be eating eggs and tomato again!  Makes quick lunches so much easier!
