I have two kids comming for tea tomorrow.

One is vegetarian, the other is not, DS is allergic to soya, fish, dairy, wheat and many other things.

So I'm trying to find a recipe that it is not difficult to cook that doesn't include nuts, soya, auberignes or the like, butter or cream (although cheese may be added on top once plates are served)

Any suggestions?

Have a look at Jamie Oliver's risotto recipes. He gives a basic recipe then lots of variations. If you haven't got the Naked Chef book or can't find the recipes on line (BBC recipe finder is v. good) then post again and I'll copy it out of the book.

Just make a plain risotto and add whatever veg you like - risotto should not contain cream anyway as the creaminess comes from the startch emitted by the rice.

Maybe use courgettes griddled and peas and chanteray carrots cut up into small pieces - any vegetable at all will work oh, and dried mushrooms are really nice expecially if you drizzle with truffle oil when dished up.

I love risotto and never add cream and only add grated parmesan at the end, could easily be done once in portions.

I like roasted cherry tomato or pea, finely chopped courgette and aspargus.

www.bbc.co.uk/food/recipes/database/mushroomrisotto_85882.shtml, use oil instead of butter at the beginning.

Ignoring that, why not just do bangers and mash (with dairy free milk/butter for DS) and use veggie bangers?

I'm vegetarian and my nieces are dairy and wheat intolerant so I feel your pain.

Good luck!

Roasted veg in a plain tomato sauce - and stir in the pasta

butternut squash risotto

Just leave out the butter and use olive oil instead and add the cheese on the individual plates.

mushroom risotto is nice.
Or you could try a risotto primavera. On that link is also a link to butternut squash risotto, another nice one.
Cream is definitely a non-essential, I wouldn't dream of using it in a risotto.

For wheat-free pasta, I use the Orgran Rice & Vegetable or RIce & Millet (although the R&M is gtting harder to find now) - both fine.

Thank you ever so much. Will have a look at the recipes.

DS is what we say a carnivorous vegan (can't have most vegetable protein so we use meat instead) so when some one says vegetarian.... I start running in circles as I suspect some mothers do when I say how allergic DS is.

Thank you
