Allergy Free Comforting Chicken & Rice
This dish came together as one of those, “use what’s in the fridge” types of meals. I only used a small amount of asparagus since around here, it’s considered a bad word. I’m working on that by the way, lol. Here’s the best part though: after I had everything ready, I asked everyone to sample, and they were just so pleased. The Papa said that it’s not a dish that knocks you off your feet with flavor, but at the same time, it’s just so comforting to eat. In fact, he told me several times that evening that “Dinner was just so comforting. We should have that again soon.” Coming from him, and knowing that asparagus was involved, it was quite the compliment. So, from our kitchen to yours, here’s a comforting dish for the family to enjoy.

Grain Free, Allergy Friendly, Sweet & Sour Pork
I have been having SO much fun experimenting with the Cascadian Farms frozen cauliflower rice product. I think it’s been out for a while, but only newly available in our area. Whole Foods also has a similar product, however, it’s made in a shared facility, and isn’t safe for Kid Two. This new product though, it’s very interesting! When we make cauliflower rice at home, there’s a much more organic texture about it. The frozen package seems to have somewhat uniform square pieces of cauliflower.
I was working on a different project when this idea came to me – an allergy friendly sweet and sour pork. First, I thought I would about it in the tradition way, then I reminded myself of how much I love to go about things totally different. I have yet to see a clean, grain free, version of sweet and sour pork, and set out to make that a reality. When I made it, I was afraid I had gone a bit too far and no one would like it… They ate it all in one go. I think it’s safe to say this is a delicious recipe 🙂
Allergy Status: Gluten/Wheat Free, Grain Free, Dairy Free, Egg Free, Soy Free, Nut Free, Peanut Free, Yeast Free, Cane/Refined Sugar Free, Corn Free, Paleo, GAPs Compatible, Diabetic, SCD Compatible
For Corn Free: Source safe ingredients, especially the bell pepper, and pineapple.
For SCD: Use organic date sugar instead of organic maple sugar, and use an appropriate flour such as coconut.
For GAPs: Use the proper flour and omit the cassava and tiger nut. Read More
Allergy Free Taco Tuesday Gorditas
Do you remember gorditas from Taco Bell? I learned about these as a kid, and thought it was pretty neat to have two taco shells in on go. For many reasons, we don’t feed the kids fast food, however, I love recreating things at home for them that I think they’d just love. This was a HUGE hit! If it weren’t for my severe corn allergy, I’m sure we’d make these more often. It was comforting to see how much the kids were willing to work to keep me safe while we prepared this meal. The Papa set up a table outside for us to work on, and of course, I didn’t touch anything. So, ready to make these? Our Allergy Kid had never had anything like it, and was blown away, as was everyone else.

Allergy Free, Vegan, Brussels Sprouts Lunch & Giveaway
As you may know, we teamed up with Bentology to bring you a delicious stuffed pork recipe. Well, there’s this one as well, as we didn’t want our vegan readers to be left out. As I mentioned before, I really like that this is a bento-style product. In addition to making this recipe for our vegan eaters, I thought it would be great since they work hard to encourage people to eat healthy. For those of you that are brussels sprouts avoiders, I can personally guarantee that The Papa was happy with this meal. Focus on the word happy. He hates brussels sprouts.
To make this partnership even better, Bentology has given us one of their lunch boxes and tote to give away. To take part in the giveaway, head over to our Instagam account, @TheAllergyChef, and follow the instructions. Good luck!

Allergy & Grain Free Veggie Stuffed Pork & Cauliflower Rice
We teamed up with Bentology to bring you this recipe (and another that will be posted soon). They have a really great lunch product you may enjoy. The premise is that it helps with portion control. Their bento-style lunch box comes with 5 containers, each with an image of what should go inside, such as vegetables. It’s a great visual reminder for adults who want to eat healthy. I personally like simply because it’s bento-style. Be sure to check out our Instagram account, @theallergychef, for a giveaway of their product.
