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
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
Oooo thank you - they sound delicious, especially the stuffed biscuits! Can't wait to try
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.

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.
Thank you all. I really appreciate the tips and will be trying one of these suggestions this weekend
M&S do a dried GF chickpea pasta which is better than most.
