Instant Pot Beef Taco Bowl with Tostones

lectin-free

I’m finally falling in love with my Instant Pot. I love it for the convenince when having to cook this type of meal. A steak cooks unattended until super soft while I prepare the rest of the ingredients. And since I’m not a planner, a fast cooking device suits me much better than a slow cooker. We rarely can decide what we are going to eat a few hours in advance. This taco bowl is delicious, healthy, lectin-free and with few modifications, low-histamine.

Italian Chicken Salad with Balsamic Vinaigrette

I realized recently I don’t have many salad recipes on this website, and I decided to change this. I’m making a list of my favorite salads I’ve ever had in my trips around the world, and will try to re-create them. Many years ago when I was living in Bucharest, Romania, my friends and I had a favorite Italian restaurant, and a favorite dish: Insalata di Polo, Italian for Chicken Salad. This Italian Chicken Salad was pretty close to what I experienced in Bucharest, so I’m sharing it here. Continue Reading…

Nigella’s New Orleans Coleslaw Made Lectin-Free

When I cooked for guests last weekend, I checked one of Nigella’s cookbooks I have at home (slightly damaged by a flooding three years ago, but still functional) to get some inspiration. Her love for entertaining is famous and I knew I might find something interesting that can be converted into a nutritious lectin-free dish. And I did: her New Orleans Coleslaw looked exactly like what I needed for this event.

Sea Vegetables Chicken Salad with Miracle Noodles

This salad was born when I discovered the Sea Tangle Mixed Sea Vegetables in Whole Foods. I’m not sure if this is available in other stores, but I’m sure you will find some sort of compliant sea vegetables elsewhere. Just make sure they have no weird ingredients added, they should only need salt. This is easy to put together and works as dinner but also can be packed for a workday lunch.

Lectin Free Avocado Salsa

Who is eating avocado daily? I do and sometimes I’m bored with all the classic ways of eating it. This morning, while reading the new Special Issue of National Geographic about Blue Zones and the science of living longer, I found this recipe of avocado salsa inspired by Loma Linda vegetarian cuisine (Loma Linda in California is one of the seven blue zones in the world, where people live the longest and healthiest lives).

Bi-Color Sweet Potato Salad

This sweet potato salad has been one on my first recipes posted when I started my Instagram account, but at that time I didn’t have a website so It was not posted here. But 4th of July is approaching and I got few requests for plant paradox compliant side dished that are not green salads. This is lectin free and vegetarian, and it’s a base that you can play with and make it your own.

Tabbouleh With Millet and Hemp Hearts

One of my favorite salads, tabbouleh, is back to my table after experimenting with plant paradox compliant ingredients that taste the and have the same texture as bulgur. That is millet and hemp hearts. Millet by itself was a bit too soft to work, but mixed with some crunchy hemp herts / seeds does a great job to add texture to this lectin free tabbouleh salad.
