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!

Mushroom Risotto

This was a 'hm what shall I do with them' thrown together supper which turned out very well and needed writing down! The measurements were basically what I had so feel free to play fast & loose with them. Serves 1, preferably on the sofa in front of the telly!

Half a cup of wild mushrooms (i had a mixed selection from the market, some of which I have no idea of the names for!)
Tsp of chopped garlic (mine comes in a jar!)
Third of tin of 'easy onion' (about half an onion)
Quarter cup of dried mushrooms
Chicken stock cube
Quarter cup of risotto rice
Olive oil
Tbsp nutritional yeast flakes
2 tbsp coconut cream

Make the stock and add the dried mushrooms to soak
In a deep frying pan, fry the fresh mushrooms with olive oil and half the garlic - tip into a bowl and set aside
In the same pan add the onion and garlic until soft
Add the rice and stir
Add salt and pepper
Add a good splash of sherry and stir til absorbed
Add about a quarter cup of stock / mushroom liquid and stir til absorbed. Repeat until the rice is nearly cooked
Add all the mushrooms and finish cooking
Add in the coconut cream and nutritional yeast flakes and allow to cook for a bit (you want the mushroom taste to overpower the coconut) stirring well
Taste for seasoning
