Remember the time I tried to give up dairy? Well, one of the things I struggled with was thinking of yummy things to eat which didn’t contain cow’s milk. If I didn’t plan ahead, I ended up eating dry toast for lunch.
So, I decided to create a Pinterest board (which you can see & follow here) to help me with my meal planning. As well as that, I thought I’d do a little round-up of some of my favourite dairy-free recipes here on the blog.
A colourful winter salad featuring sweet potato and parsnip
Autumnal bean salad with brown rice and broccoli
Spanish omelette with a sweet potato twist
Summer panzanella with peppers and tomatoes
Creamy tomato pasta shells using cashews to make it creamy
5 minute vegan kale pesto which is a lovely addition to pasta or roasted vegetables
Green goddess quinoa summer salad (without the mozzarella!)
Smoky tomato soup which is a nice little twist and I love smoky flavours
Coconut milk ice cream (just 3 ingredients!)
Overnight oats which are super healthy, full of omega 3, and take just 5 minutes to prepare
Vegan broccoli salad I love broccoli as a salad ingredient
Squash gnocchi but without the parmesan and butter!
Pineapple BBQ chicken if you’re not completely plant-based
Swedish apple pie the perfect autumnal pudding
Grilled cauliflower with winter pesto
One pot tomato basil pasta. This is a weekday lifesaver. Without the parmesan to serve, of course
Mediterranean baked sweet potatoes. So hearty, but simple
Cauliflower risotto – much lighter than using arborio rice
Zucchini pasta. Everyone loves courgetti, and I prefer this with tomato-based sauces, rather than creamy ones which contain dairy
Spinach and sun-dried tomato omelette sandwich. Hello perfect brunch
Lentil sloppy joes which are satisfyingly messy
Sweet pepper omelette which I like with a little side salad for lunch
Courgettes with truffles and mint dressing. Seems fussy, but it isn’t!
I have decided to try and give up dairy again, for a longer period of time this time. So please do get in touch with your favourite dairy-free recipes, because I’ll need a lot more to get me through!
