Gluten and Dairy Free Tomato and Courgette Soup with Wholemeal Sage Focaccia

Tomato & Courgette Soup

This soup is healthy, nutritious, easy to make and a good use for courgettes which I seem to have a lot of but I’m never sure what to do with! The accompanying bread is also a healthy snack made with gluten free wholemeal flour. Both the soup and bread can be frozen and used at a later date.

Enjoy!

Gluten and Dairy Free Chocolate and Lime Crepes

Gluten Free Crepes

I think crepes are fantastic, they have very little ingredients in the base recipe, are extremely versatile as you can experiment with endless fillings and eat them anytime of the day, and most importantly they always look like you made a real effort!

For this recipe I’ve offset the sweetness of the chocolate with the zestyness of the lime but use this recipe as a basic and go wild with endless gluten and dairy free fillings

Enjoy!

Day Five – Gluten Free on the Go – the Noodle Box

Hello,

It’s the final idea/recipe for gluten and dairy free on the go, sorry for the delay in adding this to the website. It’s been a busy but successful last few days getting the house ready, a huge trip round all round East Lothian to get a gas cylinder that fits the new BBQ in time for the much anticipated dinner outside (a rarity in Scotland), typically ending up getting one about 1/2 a mile away (always!). It even took me half an hour this morning to find the charging cable for my laptop but here we are the final packed lunch idea – the noodle box!

Enjoy!
