    I know some people on here also follow low carb diets or have to eat gluten or dairy free. Thought we could start off a list of recipes and ideas that would stick to this.
    I will start with my cheat "Mash Potato".I say it is a cheat, as I am not allowed any kind of potato on my diet, but this has such a small amount I'm sure it can't be that bad ;-)
    Take a small sweet potato, peel and chop into small-ish pieces. Place in saucepan about 1/2 full of water. Add 3/4 of a cup of mung lentils, salt and pepper. Bring to the boil and cook until tender. Drain away any excess water, add a **** of coconut oil (comes as a solid) and a spoon of rice cream and mash well. If it needs thickening, add a small amount of coconut flour. and mix well Serves 2.

  3. curry recipe looks good. Although i would leave out the coconut oil, tofu and rice cream.
    I made a mash this weekend with potato and celeriac. I mashed it with some of the water and added mustard and chili. It was delicious. The second meal I added finely chopped cooked kale to the mix and made potato cakes which I cooked in a pan and had with coleslaw.

    This is a base recipe for dairy-free pancakes which I make for vegan friends. You can use them as sweet or savoury pancakes - makes about 8 pancakes.
    Sift 140g of SR flour and 1tsp soya flour into a bowl and whisk with 400ml of soya milk. Make the pancakes in the usual way using vegetable oil to fry the pancakes in - use about 3tbsp of batter per pancake.
