Our Growing Edge – May 2016 Intro


May edition of Our Growing Edge is hosted by Joana from My Gut Feeling. The theme this month is “Allergy friendly recipes”.


We all know someone with a food allergy and the restaurant and cafe industry are increasingly catering to food allergies too.

I love cooking for other people and sometimes this includes allergy friendly recipes. I am lucky that we don’t have any food allergies in our household, but I have dabbled in some gluten free baking after I was diagnosed with an auto-immune disease a few years back. Gluten free seems to be fairly common and cafes around here usually stock at least one gluten free option, while dairy free, nut free and egg free can usually be arranged after speaking to the chef.

Vegan isn’t a diet or way of life I personally follow but I have cooked vegan meals in the past which are both egg and dairy free. It’s good to have a recipe or two up your sleeve for those occasions.

Hopefully this round up will inspire us to try some new recipes.

Some ideas you could try this month
  • Rehash a favourite recipe to make it gluten free
  • Try cooking with a dairy free milk
  • Bake with dairy free chocolate
  • Test out an egg substitute

Please indicate if your submission is: gluten free, lactose free, nuts free, low fodmap…etc

  1. It’s so serendipitous, but I just started trying mostly vegan (sometimes I cheat with the chocolate chips) baking last week. Have made 3 things so far (brownies, chocolate chip cookies, oatmeal choc chip & pomegranate cookies) – all I like better than the non-vegan originals I’ve had in the past!
