we have quite limited menus. my ds was very fussy but is starting to become more adventurous, but I have run out of ideas and most books seem to involve dairy.

what do you feed yours?

hmm all sorts!

this week we have had:

risotto

devilled tofu/veg kebabs (but could make with meat/fish)

vegetable tart

homemade pizza and potato wedges

mushroom stroganoff

i do homemade pesto (big bunch of basil, some walnuts or pinenuts, sea salt and olive oil all whizzed up)
tomato sauce (or you could just use tom puree as the base)
then whatever I have hanging around. usually mushrooms, peppers, onions, sweetcorn.

I have a cookbook called vegan with a vengeance and it has a fantastic pizza section in it

Also my best tip for a little snack for dairy intolerance is Jacobs fig rolls, watch other brands as some have milk in!

People stop and stare when my dd gets very excited (still amazes me) in the biscuit isle over a packet of figrolls

you could make your own burgers, just need some mince and squish it up with some seasoning into a burger shape.

sausages and mash?

i have a complete blank now on any other meals I have ever made for us lol

fish fingers/chips/broccoli
chicken risotto
lasagne (oat milk substitute)
chicken korma with coconut milk
fish cakes
sausages and mash

For burgers and sausages - speak to your local Butchers and ask what they put in theirs. I know that my local Butchers do not have any dairy or egg in their burgers and sausages.

My DD has various allergies and in the last couple of weeks we (or just the dc) have had :

pasta & hot dogs
Chicken, coconut rice and kidney beans
Soup with pasta
Salad & smoked mackerel
Salmon & stir fry veg and noodles
Chicken fajitas

You do get used to cooking with these restrictions - I had to rethink all our meals smile

For snacks - agree with others, Jacobs Fig Rolls are great.

Tesco Bourbon biscuits

Rich tea biscuits

Plain Hob-nobs or Tesco's own label ones

Ginger nut biscuits

or make your own Anzac Biscuits and replace the butter with dairy free spread.

Or my recipe for Oaty Cookies
