Happy Elimination Diet! These foods are things I love to eat ALL the time (whether I'm on an elimination diet or not!) I hope you LOVE these recipes as much as my family does!
My default for all roast dinners is the fabulous Jamie Oliver. He really gets family cooking and his recipes are often easy to learn and nutritionally sound. This roast chicken dinner is something I've been cooking forever and I'm sure it will become a regular at your house.
Vegan Shepherd's Pie
Is it a shepherd's pie if it's vegan? I'm not sure it is but this lentil dish is too good to leave out.
Kale and Cashew Pesto Pasta
This is one of my fav's from Donna Hay's cookbook The New Easy. True to it's name this cookbook is full of modern flavours in recipes that are incredibly easy. In this version I'm swapping out spaghetti for this really cool pea pasta I found at Costco. It's gluten free and has way more protein than wheat pasta! Plus it has the best texture of any gluten free pasta I've tried to date.
4 servings pea pasta
1/2 bunch of kale
1/3 cup parsley
1 clove garlic
2/3 cup cashews
1/2 cup olive oil
Cook the pea pasta according to package directions. While pasta is cooking prepare pesto. Chop kale and parsley in a food processor. Add garlic, lemon zest, cashews, and olive oil and pulse until finely chopped and combined. Toss the pesto on the pasta and serve with lemon wedges.
Chicken Tray Bake
I love this dinner because it's easy to prepare and it's so yummy - it seems like it should be more complicated but the oven really does all the work. What I like about this tray bake is that it's free of pre-made condiments but it still tastes really great.
Trout is one of my favourite fish to eat. It's full of the long chain omega-3 fatty acids we all need more of, it's local to Ontario lakes, and it's usually quite affordable! One of my first blogs was a trout recipe, I hope you like this simple recipe for weeknight trout!
Cashew Chicken Satay
This is the kind of fun food I want to eat on a Friday night. Tasty, fun and it doesn't take too much brain power to put together. I often serve it as part of "dip-able dinner" with some chopped raw veggies. Check it out.
