Dear friends, I am so happy to share this simple but delicious lectin-free recipe with you. Crepes were my childhood favorite treat. My mom made (and still makes) the best crepes, and I missed them so much. Crepes are my “madeleines”.Continue Reading…
I’ve been away from our Dallas home, traveling in Europe, for more than three weeks, and I’m still away while I’m writing this. One of the highlights of this trip were chestnuts. First freshly boiled chestnuts in Romania, then discovering chestnut flour in Denmark. So I’ve been making this lectin free pie with seasonal root vegetables and a mix of chestnut and tigernut flour and I loved it so much I couldn’t wait to share it.Continue Reading…
When I’m out of ideas of what to cook, I ask my husband, and he usually has some random, but inspired requests. This time he said chicken drumsticks and cold potato salad. I had everything I needed so I was happy to comply. This was a great lectin-free dinner, healthy, and easy to make.
It has been a tradition in our household to create a new birthday cake on our birthdays. Since my husband loves chocolate and it was his birthday in April, I decided on a chocolate cake this time. And oh my, it didn’t disappoint. Although the looks might suggest something different, it’s actually a pretty basic and simple recipe to put together, so that’s another plus. And it’s grain-free, sugar free and lectin-free cake.
This one sheet pan easy meal was born from another attempt to find ways to eat artichokes. I don’t know about you, but those artichoke hearts – frozen or from a jar – are not exactly the tastiest thing you can eat, and I’m a little bothered by texture. But these prosciutto wrapped artichoke hearts might be the best way to eat them.
Sometimes I take for granted dishes that for me are simple so I don’t consider necessary to make a recipe, but my sister asked for a specific recipe for cauliflower, because she would have no idea how to combine ingredients to make it tasty. So for her I put together this lectin-free cauliflower gratin recipe and I hope some of you will also find it useful, and tasty.
Mashed potatoes is the ultimate holiday comfort side-dish, but if you are on a health journey and avoiding nightshades, what to do? One easy option is to use a sweet potato instead, and some even use cauliflower, but there is something about parsnips and chestnuts that I like, other that they are lectin-free. They are both fragrant and earthy, much more that a potato or cauliflower. Continue Reading…
Pecans are my new obsession. And I don’t even think I knew they existed before I moved to the US, more precisely to Texas. If you ask me, they are the tastiest tree nut out there, and you might already know how much I love home made pecan butter. But Thanksgiving is a week away so I thought I’d try to make a healthier version of this classic recipe.
How is that time of the year again? I’ve made a similar lectin-free sweet potato pie last year for Thanksgiving, and couldn’t wait to re-test it and improve it for this year’s fall season. And I though I’d do it earlier this year to give y’all time to prepare. Move over pumpkin, sweet potato got our back this fall.
This is more than a recipe, is a healthy and delicious lectin-free dinner idea. When I posted on Instagram our dinner yesterday, I had not planned to write the recipe down, but I got so many requests for recipes for both the salmon cakes and the spinach pesto that I had to retrace all my steps and put it all together.
