Chestnut Pie with Root Vegetables

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.

Lectin-Free Chocolate Strawberry Birthday Cake

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.

Prosciutto Wrapped Artichoke Hearts

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.

Parsnip and Chestnuts Puree with Chives

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…

Lectin-Free Bourbon Chocolate Pecan Pie

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.

Alaskan Salmon Cakes with Spinach Pesto and Avocado

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.
