When you have to go dairy/soy free for your bub because they are reacting to it, or maybe you don’t feel so good when you eat it, it is a minefield of what can you eat?
Suddenly everything seems to have cheese or cream or butter in it and it would be a lot easier to chuck it in the fuck it bucket.
But it’s okay!
I’m here to help!
I’ve also made this list meat free because I know a lot of people bust out Meatless Monday in some form and honestly, it is so much cheaper. Like… I thought avocados were expensive and then I bought meat again while doing groceries for my parents. Where did $150 go?!
On a tough fortnight, I can make our budget of about $120 feed us, with some extra bread and milk added in there.
A few of these are Thermomix recipes but they’re fairly easy to convert.
If there’s adjustments I’ve made, I’ll put it next to the recipe
Skinnymixers Baked Beans – I leave out the chorizo, use soy sauce instead of Worcestershire sauce and reduce water added by about half
Dairy Free Mac n Cheese – no adjustments, but don’t go overboard with the mustard. Remember you can add but can’t take it away!
Skinnymixers Shepherds Pie – use nut butter (e.g. nuttilex) instead of butter/cream where mentioned. Instead of mince I drain and rinse 2 cans lentils and cook exactly the same
Sweet Potato, Spinach and Chickpea Curry – this one is amazeballs. Dex eats it without complaint. Morrigan loves it. Lola doesn’t really love anything that’s not ice-cream but she’ll eat it.
Falafels – I make these roughly once a fortnight
Skinnymixers Coconut Curried Pumpkin Soup – LOVE this recipe.
Banana Bread – Is it cheating if I link my own recipe? Sorry. But it’s a favourite. SUPER easy.
All of these meals (except the banana bread because of the sugar) Morrigan eats no problems. Shepherd’s Pie and Pumpkin Soup are her favourites.
I know a lot of these are Skinnymixers – I’m not sponsored, promise. Nikalene just does a great job making most of her recipes easily interchangeable with few allergens in the first place.
Let me know if there’s favourites of yours that I should try!
