- 3/4 cup dried pasta
- 4 pieces venison sausage, sliced
- 4 asparagus spears, cut into small lengths
- 6 green beans, sliced
- chopped Cos lettuce
- 1/2 zucchini, green part grated
- 1/4 teaspoon dijon mustard
- 1/4 teaspoon honey
- 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
- 3 tablespoons olive oil
- sea salt and pepper to taste
- Place a pot of salted water on to boil and start chopping the vegetables while it comes to the boil. Add the pasta and cook until tender. While it is cooking, prepare the dressing by melting the honey and adding to all the dressing ingredients. Shake well in a jar. Approximately 2 minutes before the end of cooking time, add the asparagus and beans to the pot. Once pasta and veges are cooked, strain well then run cold water over to cool completely. Add the remaining ingredients and toss with the dressing (or serve the dressing separately like I do).
Dairy, Egg and Gluten free dinner ideas: Venison with crunchy thyme potatoes and garlicky 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.
Allergy friendly Chocolate Mousse with a chocolate coconut crumb and raspberries GF DF EF NF Paleo and low sugar diet friendly
It is ridiculously hard coming up with recipes that suit all the different allergy friendly camps: gluten free, egg free, dairy free, nut free…then the Paleo, no sugar….AAAAARRRRGGGHHH brain freeze! So usually I just choose a couple and try and fly with it. Today I got a bit brave and tried to come up with something that would suit a whole lot of people…just to be nice 🙂 Oh and mostly because I wanted to eat something with chocolate. So this is completely dairy, egg, nut, and gluten free. It is also free of refined sugar (other than the minute amount in the very dark chocolate I used), and seems to fit for most Paleo diets. It is quite bitter, which I love, so if you don’t like that, you can use a chocolate with a higher sugar content 🙂 Big apologies in advance to the coconut allergy brigade!
*Disclaimer! I’m not doing Paleo or no sugar diets so don’t know heaps about it: this recipe has a small amount of honey and dark chocolate, the general consensus online is this is acceptable in very small quantities but obviously up to you!
**2nd disclaimer! It’s obviously not a real chocolate mousse. But it tastes yummy anyway.
I managed to pick up some cheap eggplants from the shop the other day and happened to have a zucchini in my garden and lots of capsicums heading for the compost heap in my fridge. So this what I came up with: pretty as a picture and super yum. And miraculously pretty healthy too!
Excuse the terrible photo, but this fruit sushi is an awesome dish for birthday parties, and interestingly was the first thing to disappear at my daughters first birthday celebration recently..and there was plenty to choose from…so it definitely warrants an inclusion 🙂 It’s also safe for most people as its dairy, egg, nut and gluten free. It has kiwifruit inside, but if that is a problem, you could substitute all sorts of other fruit like berries.
