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!

Swedish Wedding Soup

This is a made up thing, using an American - Italian recipe & Swedish meatballs. No chopping just a bit of snipping!

Pack of Swedish meatballs (350g)
1 pack waitrose soffrito mix (about 3 cups chopped onion, carrot & celery)
Vegetable bouquet garni
10 cups chicken stock (the better the stock, the better the soup but I must admit I use cubes - Kallo Organic)
1 cup small pasta (doves farm do gf ditalini)
Small bunch fresh dill
12 ounces baby spinach (about a small pack)

1. Cook the meatballs as per instructions
2. Saute the carrots, onion & celery with a pinch of salt until softened.
3. Add the chicken stock & bouquet garni and bring to the boil
4. Add the pasta and cook as per the packet
5. Snip in the dill and add the meat balls and simmer for 1 minute
6. Taste for salt & pepper then stir in the fresh spinach and simmer for 1 minute -just until the spinach has wilted
7. Serve! (here with a couple of slices of Genius bloomer)
