My lovely friends are coming round on Friday. Now, whilst they are lovely, they are also a PITA to cook for. After years of this, I am running out of ideas. Help!
The food has to be:
Vegetarian (can be fish and thankheavens the seafood hater isn't coming so it can also be prawns etc.) Gluten-free (one is a coeliac) Not too spicy (one has IBS) Easy for me to cook as I have a 10 month old so can't prep much during the day and have to put him to bed at 7.
The vegetarian also prefers dairy-free but will eat cheese 'if it's from happy cows' .
seafood risotto. OR if that takes too long, get some Orgran gluten-free pasta and do seafood pasta. We use the rice & millet one, which is becoming increasingly hard to find in supermarkets but is still usually available in Holland & Barrett. DH prefers it to normal pasta now (I'm the one with the problem, not him!)
Thanks aristocat but I'm guessing that has wheat flour in so is a no-no. They are getting strawbs and cream (except for DP who insists on something chocolatey and it's his birthday so I can't tellhimtobuggeroff say no). [Am also counting down days to July!]
Tapas for mains, the majority of which I am lovingly buyingfromSainsburys preparing by hand.
but you can get GF flour, Doves farm do loads of different types, including GF plain flour that makes fab pastry, so I expect it would make good crumble too - and Doves Farm also have recipes on their website. Doves Farm stuff is in most supermarkets and H&B.
