I was able to buy a nice thinly sliced turkey breast. I’ve never thought of stuffing it like that before, but it turned out to be delicious, and I’ll make it again. 😊😋 With Christmas coming up, I would recommend it to anyone. It takes only a few minutes to prepare the stuffing and fill the meat. And after roasting, you just need to steam them and you don’t need to stand by the hob. But you can also prepare the meat the day before and just roast it on Christmas Day. 😊🎄🎇✨

Ingredients for 4 people:

4 thin slices of turkey breast
8 slices of lactose-free cheese
16 thin slices of gluten and lactose free bacon
8 slices of gluten and lactose free turkey breast ham
100 ml lactose-free milk
For filling:
1 gluten-free bun
1 bunch of green parsley
1 egg
50 g gluten- and lactose-free liver pate
ground pepper to taste
garlic powder to taste

Preparation

I cut the buns into small pieces, arranged them in the bottom of a small bowl, then poured the milk over them. I pressed them thoroughly into the milk and leaved them for a few minutes to soften all over. I didn’t need to pour the milk off because it was all absorbed by the bun, but if there’s any left in the bottom of the bowl you have to pour it out. Then I mixed it thoroughly with the ingredients.

I salted the turkey breast slices and layered them with ham, cheese, stuffing, then cheese and ham again. I carefully folded in the ends of the meat and then the sides on top.

I sealed the ends with the bacon first and then covered the stuffed meat tightly from the other side.

I browned both sides in hot oil, then lowered the heat to simmer under the lid for 15-20 minutes until tender.

I served it with parsley rice, but any side dish will do. When you cut the meat apart you can see the layers very nicely, the filling in the middle stays intact, the hot melting cheese permeates all the layers. 😋

There is not always time to cook or spend a lot of time in the kitchen. It’s good to have a recipe that you can prepare in advance and store in the fridge to bake the next day. This dish took me 15 minutes to put together, and then I could do my business while it was baking.

Ingredients:

rice for 4 persons
1 small purple onion
1 small Chinese kale
400 g minced meat
salt to taste
pepper to taste
garlic powder to taste
lactose-free sour yoghurt or sour cream to taste

Preparation

To start, you need three pots. In the first one, put the rice to cook.

In the second, sauté the purple onion in butter until translucent.

In the third, put water to boil with a teaspoon of salt.

Lactose free cabbage casserole3

I cut off the end of the kale and separated the leaves.

After the onion was cooked, I mixed the minced meat with the herbs and cooked it until the meat was white.

No need to cook the rice and the meat fully, because they will still be roasting in the oven.

When the water has boiled, I cooked the cabbage leaves for 2-3 minutes, making sure that the thick white part is under the water.

I coated a fireproof dish with olive oil.

I used the cabbage leaves to line the bottom of the baking dish so that it overhangs the edge of the dish (you’ll need to fold this back over the minced meat at the end).

I spread the rice evenly on top, then came the minced meat.

I folded the rest of the cabbage over the minced meat. I spread the top generously with sour cream. I baked it in a preheated oven at 210 degrees for 30 minutes, at the end I baked it on a higher heat for 5 minutes to brown the sour cream and the cabbage on top.

It’s best when hot, when you take it out of the oven.😋 But then it’s hard to serve it nicely, because it tends to fall apart when you put it on the plate. If possible, wait 15 minutes before cutting it. You can also serve it with lactose-free sour yoghurt or sour cream on the plate.

I always think a lot about what I can do to vary the dishes, most of the time I ask myself what I can serve as a side dish. Because of the gluten and our many allergies, we are very limited. But I try to make the most out of it.
Today I made grilled chicken in a pressure cooker. The program took 25 minutes. I figured I could make the side dish meantime. I got a big bag of minced cauliflower from fridge. 😊 Earlier I tried it, and it turned out that the roasted cauliflower tasted great with the roasted chicken. I only added salt this time, because grilled chicken has a very intense flavour, but I’m sure that pepper and garlic, for example, won’t make it worse. 😁 It can also be dipped in sour yoghurt. 😊 😋

Ingredients

400 grams minced cauliflower
4 eggs
4 tablespoons rice flour

Preparation

I added all the ingredients to the minced cauliflower and mixed thoroughly.

Glutenfree, simple, quick cauliflower rösti1Glutenfree, simple, quick cauliflower rösti2Glutenfree, simple, quick cauliflower rösti3

I put a little oil in the frying pan, but I didn’t heat it up too much, just enough to cook the rösti. I put it in the oil with a tablespoon, spread it out evenly into the size of the palm of my hand and fried it for 3-5 minutes on both sides. Don’t fry too quickly as it burns easily and the center remains raw.

I took it out on paper towels, soaked up the excess oil and served it. 😊

In every family, including ours, there’s a great favourite that we make quite often and everyone loves it, and it’s always a big hit. The cherry pie. First it was my husband’s favourite and then it became also the children’s. The pastry is basic, you can make it with any fruit. I think we’ve tried all sorts over the years. Although I didn’t go to any cook school, only cooked at home for my family’s enjoyment, I learned to know the flavours without tasting. So I’ve reformed a few of my recipes, and today it was my old recipe’s turn. Glad I did, because you know, here comes the real praise again, the hmmm… 💗 and the “don’t put that plate too far away please”. 😀🥰

Ingredients

3 eggs
300 grams of sugar
100 grams of lactose-free margarine
200 gram lactose-free butter cream
350 g gluten-free cake flour
8 grams vanilla sugar
12 grams baking powder
For serving:
conserve cherries
gluten and lactose free white chocolate chips

Preparation

I beat the eggs into stiff mousse.

I cut baking paper for the pie pan.

To the stiff mousse I added the sugar and vanilla sugar first, then the butter and the buttercream in small portions. I mixed the baking powder with the flour and added it to the batter.

I put it in the pie pan, topped it with cherries and white chocolate chips. I baked in a preheated oven at 180 degrees Celsius for 50 minutes.

I removed it from the pan while hot and let it cool for about 15 minutes.

The truth is, I couldn’t get enough of the sight and smell of it. I just hoped the taste would be wonderful.

After tasting the crumbs, I felt reassured, it was delicious this way. I managed to take a simple cake to a higher level. I highly recommend it to everyone, it can be made with plain flour in the same proportions. It went perfectly with my afternoon coffee.

Gluten and lactosefree roasted, stuffed bell pepper

Gluten and lactosefree roasted, stuffed bell pepper

The plants in our green house were drying out, so we took them out. As last, farewell autumn presents from our plants, we found cucumbers, several types of peppers and 4 giant bell peppers (which we call American peppers over here). I knew then that they would become stuffed peppers. I didn’t have much time in the kitchen today, but the preparation was done in half an hour, then they just needed roasting. You can prepare this meal in advance, and when you want to eat it you just have to roast it in the oven. Of course, you may need longer roasting time if you take out from the fridge. The ingredients are marked gluten free, which is why I included them in the recipe.

Ingredients for 4 people

150 grams onion
4 large bell peppers
2 large garlic cloves
600 grams minced chicken breast
2 tablespoons of paprika cream
1 teaspoon of ground pepper
1 teaspoon of salt
tomatoes to taste
lactose-free or vegetable cheese to taste
To serve:
boiled potatoes
lactose-free sour yoghurt or lactose-free sour cream to taste

Preparation

I fried the onions in a little oil. I washed the peppers and peeled the garlic.

I sautéed the thinly sliced garlic with the onion for a few minutes, then added the minced meat. I cooked it until the meat was white and then added the spices. I cooked it for a few minutes more. Meanwhile, I cut off the ends of the peppers and scooped out the insides.

I was looking for a baking dish in which the peppers wouldn’t fall over. I drizzled olive oil all over the tray, as well as the outside of the peppers, to make them roast better. I stuffed them with the meat filling. At the end, I poured the juices from the roasted meat into the peppers. I sliced some tomatoes, I had some cocktail tomatoes at home this time, put them on top of the meat and sprinkled the top with cheese. I preheated the oven to 180 degrees and cooked the dish for 30 minutes.

While it was roasting, I peeled potatoes, cut them into large slices and boiled them. We tasted it when serving and found that it went well with sour cream. When we cut the peppers in half, the juices from the roast flowed out, and it was delicious with the potatoes.

Gluten and lactose free Raffaello cake

Gluten and lactose free Raffaello cake

Raffaello17

I continued my search and research in my old recipe book. When we moved to Belgium, which was almost 17 years ago, a dear, elderly friend of mine copied a lot of her own recipes and gave them to me in a booklet as a souvenir. They were all tried and tested, her special recipes, so I have no idea where they came from originally. Sadly she is gone for two years now, so I can’t ask her.😥 It was nice to remember her, to recall her again, to read the familiar writing. I hope ahw would be pleased that these recipes are in the right place. ❤ Now here’s one that was one of her favourites. 🥰🍰

Ingredients

For the cream:
6 egg yolks
2 packets of gluten-free vanilla pudding powder (the one to be cooked)
100 grams of sugar
500 ml lactose-free or vegetable milk
200 grams lactose-free butter
For the dough:
6 egg whites
250 g sugar
100 grams gluten-free cake flour
150 g gluten-free coconut flakes
For the top of the cake:
50 grams gluten-free coconut flakes

Preparation

I made the cream first, so that it would have time to cool before I put it on the baked dough.

I mixed the egg yolks, the vanillla pudding powder and the sugar with the milk until smooth. I cooked it until stiff. I put it aside to cool.

I whisked the egg whites with the sugar until stiff, added the flour and coconut flakes. I lined a baking tray with baking paper and put it in a preheated oven at 180 degrees for 25 minutes. Don’t forget to put a small bowl of water in the bottom of the oven. 😉

Raffaello13I removed the baking paper from under the dough and closed the sides of the pan back around it. I spread the cream evenly over the pastry. I sprinkled the top with coconut flakes, and put it in the fridge for at least 1 hour.Raffaello10

Raffaello15When you remove the rim from the pan, you can see where the dough and the cream meet. It slices very nicely when brought in from the fridge, but you should always put the leftovers back in the fridge. The taste of the coconut dough and the cream go together beautifully. You can collect the… hmmm… compliments. 😋😊Raffaello16
