Allergy-Free and Easy Cooking—What a great cookbook title! This book by Cybele Pascal contains 30-minute meals without gluten, wheat, dairy, eggs, soy, peanuts, tree nuts, fish, shellfish, and sesame. The book is written for all of you who might not feel like cooking tonight.
Coming up with 30-minute meals can be difficult for anyone, but it’s even harder when the meals have to be allergy free. Cybele has done the hard work for you.
This book is nicely laid out and includes many color photos (not every recipe, though). There is a nice assortment of recipes, and I marked quite a few to try. The chapters include:
- Soups and Stews
- Pasta and Noodles
- Casseroles and Potpies
- Chicken and Turkey
- Beef, Pork, and Lamb
- Takeout at Home
Some specialty ingredients are used to make the recipes allergy free, such as Daiya cheese or egg replacer. Cybele devotes a section before the recipes to stocking your kitchen for quick and easy allergy-free cooking. Many of the items listed are not specialty items but some are. It would be very helpful to read over her list and purchase some of the items you don’t have so you are prepared to try her delicious looking recipes.
The recipes include a lot of classics like chicken noodle soup, chicken “Parmesan,” shepherd’s pie, beef and broccoli stir fry, and buffalo wings. But it also includes recipes such as Vietnamese beef noodle soup, SunButter Dan Dan noodles, chicken saltimbocca, Thai turkey larb, lamb kofta kebabs, and pumpkin enchiladas.
There is sure to be something for everyone in this cookbook, and it would make a great Christmas gift for the allergy-free cook!
