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!

Australian Grilled Fish

This is a yummy and easy way to add a zing to grilled or barbequed fish.

2 fish steaks (I have used swordfish and halibut but any firm fish will do)
1 lime
1 tbsp oil
1 tsp dijon mustard
1 tsp fresh ginger, grated
Good pinch of cayenne pepper

In a bowl combine the lime, half the oil, the mustard, ginger, cayenne and some black pepper to taste.

Marinate the fish steaks for 45-60 minutes turning 2 or 3 times.

Brush the grill /bbq /griddle pan with oil and cook for 4-5 minutes each side until cooked through.

Served here with butternut squash wedges.


  1. I am going to mark this as a place to look. I am trying to start the BBD but have been having trouble because legumes is a big part of my husbands diet. He is Mexican and beans are his thing. I have found some really nice recipes and a few I cannot use. That is my preference and not a bad thing on your part. Keep up the good work.

  2. Beans are a hard thing to swap - I have used baby potatoes before and also corn, but good luck - a mexican husband would definitely make it that bit harder! If you find any bean substitute ideas pls do let me know!
