Gluten & Dairy Free Inspiration Please!

I've recently had to give up dairy and gluten to help with a medical condition. I'm finding it a bit tough, but getting used to it. I am just struggling to not eat the exact same things every week and would love it if anyone could suggest things I could make please.

I know I can search recipes, but I'm just coming up with either a load of vegan stuff (and I do eat eggs and meat), or really technical long recipes with tons of ingredients. I can cook, but nothing too fancy, and I need quick things I can make after work. Oh and I don't like seafood or lamb.

I usually have:

GF sausage and mash
Chilli and rice
Eggs baked in tomato sauce
Beans on toast or jacket potatoes with beans
Thai curry
Roast dinner at weekends

If anyone has recommendations for a good strong cheese substitute I'd love to hear them - I have tried a few brands but they're all a bit bland.

I'll link the recipes below:

korean beef bowl
chicken stuffed 'biscuits' (essentially chicken pie bites)
crepes (fill with a thin layer of mashed potato and chopped ham and mushroom. sounds weird but its really good!)

all the best x

Soup - make in bulk and freeze some for quick dinners. Serve with baked potato or GF bread/toast.

Oh, and you can make GF and DF half pound cake using ground almonds instead of flour and Pure instead of butter.

Leftover roast with ratatouille & rice.
Pork loin cut long ways but not all the way through, stuffed with GF (M&S!) stuffing and then all wrapped in prosciutto - roast.
Sweet potato as jacket potato (cooks faster) with tinned mackerel in tomato sauce.

Make this for a treat
Also if you like chips from a chip shop it's worth asking if they have a separate fryer it's quite common these days, even on mobile chippies. Our local has a GF dedicated member of staff each shift to ensure no cross-contamination.

M&S do a dried GF chickpea pasta which is better than most.
