Allergy Free Stuffed Pork by The Allergy Chef

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.

Allergy Free, Organic Chicken Sausage & Rice by The Allergy Chef

Allergy Free, Organic Maple Chicken Sausage & Rice

During basketball season, I thought this would be fun to serve to the team, so we volunteered to bring the after game snack, and this was the result. We also sent cupcakes 🙂 When The Papa came home, he told me that another parent asked, “Who catered?” What a lovely compliment! Everyone enjoyed the dish, and really loved the cupcakes. That’s a win-win in my book, even though we didn’t win the game.

What I really love about this meal is the chicken sausage. Our Costco carries an Organic Maple Chicken Sausage! What’s not to love? It’s one of the few sausage products I can purchase that everyone can enjoy together. I normally purchase 3 or more at a time. There are 3 smaller packs to the pack, and the kids get to use them whenever they’d like for breakfasts and lunches.

Allergy Free, Organic Sweet Vegetables by The Allergy Chef

Allergy Free, Organic, Vegan, Sweet Vegetables

The inspiration from this came from a deep desire to create more vegan recipes. It breaks my heart sometimes because there’s a lot of social debate about the word, and lifestyle, vegan. However, it means a lot of different things to a lot different people. For example, there are some people who make the honest choice to be a vegan to save animals. Others have a medical condition, and have to eat a vegan diet. Then there are those that happen to benefit from the word vegan: those with food allergies. If you have an egg and dairy allergy (and no others), you can eat vegan by default. This can make it very clear when ordering from a restaurant, or trying something new in the grocery store.

I personally see the GIANT Venn Diagram that is the food allergy/lifestyle/dietary differences. There’s so many overlaps, but depending on why you’re on a path, you may not realize there are many others that can join you. I like to tell people it’s a language disconnect. Since people are approaching it from a different perspective, they go with what they know. It’s why I try so hard to break down those walls, and say hey, you can all enjoy this meal together. So, get cooking, and get to enjoying.

Allergy Free Beet Stir Fry by The Allergy Chef

Allergy Free Beet Stir Fry v2.0

If you’ve ever seen our Cookbooks, you’ll know that we have Beet Stir Fry. The kids call it Red Heaven. I kid you not, that’s what they call it. Like always, I think they’re messing around with me, but apparently, Beet Stir Fry is just epic. Now, let’s be honest, half the fun of having a blog like this is doing something different. If I always made Beet Stir Fry the same old way, there wouldn’t be much to share with you. So, I decided to take something old and turn it into something new. Although I really love making new concepts, playing with old favorites is great too. This one was quite special, and the kids loved it so much.

Traditional Beet Stir Fry uses red beets, so I opted for gold beets this time around. I also added in ingredients such as mushroom and green onion to add new depths of flavor. If you’re not a huge beet fan, try steaming one and eating it with salt. When I was first introducing the kids to beets, I did this, and they thought it tasted like a rich buttery potato. Then I introduced them to Beet Stir Fry (which isn’t really stir fry at all), and there was no turning back.

Kaffir Lime Curried Fried Rice

Allergy Free, Organic Kaffir Lime Curried Fried Rice

This was a fun experiment that I thought I would share. I was scrolling through Good Eggs a while back, and came across Kaffir Limes, sometimes called Makrut Limes. Whenever there’s something new listed, I like to read the descriptions, and this one really caught my attention. It said that it would be the perfect addition to a good curry. I went about making our Sweet Curry Chicken Fried Rice, but also added the juice from the limes, as well as lime zest! The kids said it was too lime-y, and the wished I had left it out. What do they know? They’re just children with childish palates. But seriously, I may have overdone it with the limes a tad bit. When there’s a recipe in place, I’m sure we’ll write all about it. Until then, here are some fun pictures to look at. Hopefully this will give you ideas on how to bring new flavors into your kitchen 🙂

Allergy Free Fruit Pizza Cups by The Allergy Chef

Allergy Free Organic Fruit Pizza Cups

I have been trying to sell our Allergy Kid on the idea of fruit pizza for MONTHS. I saw some cool ideas online, and thought the kids would jump at the idea. Turns out, they were thinking traditional cheese pizza topped with fruit and chocolate. Yeah…. that’s gross. Hehe. Once they saw all of the ingredients out, it started to click in their minds just what I was up to. They were all more than happy to help me put them together, and to be my hands since I can’t touch the dough.

Once the pictures had been taken, they devoured all of the cups. In fact, they LOVED these. I wasn’t sure if Kid Three and Kid Four would like them since they used non-dairy yogurt, but they said that was the best part. After a success like this, I’m sure we’ll be trying more variations of this, and you can expect to see a fruit pizza in our Allergy Friendly Pizza Cookbook.

Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Paleo Maple Ahi by The Allergy Chef

Allergy Friendly, Paleo, Maple Garlic Ahi

I’ve found myself over-experimenting with maple as of late. However, it’s been a real win-win-win for everyone. The kids are happy, readers get new recipes, and I get to use maple. It’s one of my favorite sweeteners for a very good reason: it’s one I can tolerate without getting sick, and I’ve seemed to find a brand I can use, sort of. Too much sugar of any kind is never good for me. Maple is also vegan and diabetic friendly, so there’s even more wins. OK, back to the ahi.

Costco sells wild ahi fresh where we live, however, it is a little pricey. We pay on average $25 for the ahi, and it will make one dinner. Now, divided over several people, it’s not so bad, but by comparison, canned tuna is less expensive. Needless to say, it’s something that I make the kids every couple of months. At Costco, I usually purchase two packs of ahi, make one fresh, and pre-slice the second and freeze it.

I’ve been making ahi for the kids for years, and I knew it was time to do something different, and this was a MEGA Hit! Kid Four isn’t a huge fish fan, and usually only eats a couple of pieces. The others sacrifice themselves and offer to eat the extras for me. I know, how brave, noble, and thoughtful of them, hehe. However, this version, Kid Four was more than happy to eat several pieces, and even asked for seconds.

For Corn Free & Low Histamine: Source safe ingredients, and use a homemade seasoning blend. Look up the brands that we’ve used so you can replicate a homemade safe version for yourself. For example, the AP Season has tomato in it.
For SCD: Use a safe sweetener, as maple is not allowed on SCD, and use a homemade season blend.
For AIP: Omit Braggs, as some items in the blend are non-AIP. Instead, make your own multi use blend and use that. Read More

Allergy Free, Dairy Free, Cheesy Potatoes by The Allergy Chef

Allergy Free, Dairy Free, Vegan Cheesy Potatoes

I have no idea where the inspiration for this dish came from, but the kids were more than happy that it came. This dish pairs two of their favorite things in the world: my pan seared & baked potatoes with cheese. Kid Three is a cheese-o-holic. If he could eat a pound of cheese  day, he probably would… I’m not even kidding right now. Kid Two likes his cheese as well, but have you seen the price of dairy free cheese lately? I have to ration that stuff out. Interestingly, he prefers the yellow Daiya cheese to the white, yet, really didn’t mind this fancy sauce one bit.

Allergy Friendly Marinaded Chicken by The Allergy Chef

Allergy Friendly, Organic Marinaded Chicken & Rice

Do you ever marinade your meats? I usually don’t, but have been wanting to try it more and more. I tried it with fish many years ago, but learned the hard way about using lemon, and doing it for too long. You can alter the texture of the meat… Ahhh, blissful youth. This time around, I decided to go with something I’ve heard about here and there, so I figured I wouldn’t mess anything up. It was indeed a great starting point. Interestingly, what I loved the most was the glossy, reflective image in the end. It looked like something out of a magazine, in the most delicious way possible.

Allergy Free Fruit Cones by The Alergy Chef

Allergy Free Fruit Cones

This was such a fun little treat to make! In fact, truth be told, the kids ate these for breakfast. I figured, there’s a minimal amount of sugar in the cone, minimal sugar in the whip topping, and they’re filled with fruit and yogurt. We have to live a little, right? If you have little ones, I think this is a great weekend breakfast, that looks a lot like ice cream.
