Welcome all, fill your tum with my num num nums.

Gluten, Dairy & Legume free recipes; some by design, others are just nice recipes that happen to be! There are recipes and also shopping 'finds', all of which are good for free from people and all yummy whether you are following a particular diet or not! Just because something is 'free from' doesn't mean everyone can't enjoy it - and you may be surpised at how much happier your body is.

'Special' is how my friends describe my food and me, I don't think it's entirely complimentary!

Fennel & Lemon Risotto

A nice light meal or could be a good accompaniament to fish. You don't miss the cheese in this as the zesty fresh flavours keep your tongue tingling! Serves 3 as a meal or 4 as an accompaniament.

250g Fennel
Half an Onion
250g Arborio Risotto Rice
1-2 tsp Lemon Juice
1.25l of Vegetable Stock
The grated zest of 1 Lemon
1 tbsp chopped Mint &/or Parsley

  • Slice the fennel and finely chop the onion, fry them gently until the fennel is soft.
  • Add the rice and stir, followed by the lemon juice and s&p.
  • Add the stock gradually stirring and allowing the rice to absorb the stock before adding the next bit.
  • Keep adding and stirring until it is creamy but the rice is a little al dente.
  • Add the lemon zest and stir, cover the pan and leave off the heat for a few minutes.
  • Stir through the herbs before serving.
