Calling all cooks

A young friend of our family (7 years old) has recently discovered that she has a large number of food allergies.

I need kid-friendly recipes and information resources that do NOT involve the following ingredients:

  • wheat, rice, rye, oat
  • yeast
  • eggs
  • cow’s milk in any form (goat cheese is okay)
  • garlic
  • tomato
  • walnuts
  • coconut
  • coffee
  • banana
  • kidney beans

I’ve got artichoke pasta with a tomato-free meat sauce (basically ground pork and herbs). What else? All help greatly appreciated!

  1. grilled portobellos with goat cheese and procuiutto.

    scoop out “gills” and stem of portobello. mix olive oil and lemon juice and slather portobello with it, put in broiler stem side down and broil for a bit. turn over, broil a bit, then put goat cheese, basil and prociutto in center and broil til cheese is melted.

    check out the gingery split peas soup at, that site has lots of good recipes that you can alter

  2. a moo slab and fries. salt and pepper and olive oil steak, sear on each side for 1.5 minutes, finish in oven 1 minute each side. roast the potatoes in olive oil and salt and pepper in the oven.

    pork chops with orange marmalade. spinach with olive oil, raisins and dill.

  3. Thank you, gents! Keep ’em coming!

    Donnie – she’s allergic to eggs. See.

    CL – Particularly lovin’ the spinach. Dunno if we can trick her into eating it :)

  4. Hi

    Noting the mention of allergy to wheat, rye, oat and rice, it sounds like the little person may benefit from a gluten-free diet, which is explained here: is a website created by Scott Adams, who was diagnosed with celiac disease in 1994. The site is dedicated to helping people with celiac disease and gluten intolerance live happy lives.

    There are also some books at that deal with gluten-free recipes for children; one of which is: Incredible Edible Gluten-Free Food for Kids: 150 Family-Tested Recipes by Sheri L. Sanderson.

    Also Google celiac disease or gluten-free diet for children. There are lots of resources there.

    I hope this is helpful to you.

    Best wishes


  5. Hi Angela – thanks! I am somewhat familiar with celiac disease as we used to have to plan our meeting meals to accomodate a co-worker. Good resources, much appreciated.
