Butter Replacement
0

9 posts in this topic

Hi, I am wondering if anyone knows of an alternative to butter that does not contain - gluten, soy or dairy? If it's a lost cause, can you give me ideas on:

How to flavor my veggies so they are a little more enticing

How to replace butter in recipes appropriately/ get over not being able to eat buttery things

Any tips appreciated, even if it is "Suck it up, Buttercup!"

Coconut oil works well in bakery that's not too finicky or in recipes written for it.

I used olive or peanut oil on the stovetop. Sesame oil can also add a little elan, as does walnut oil if you just want a little fat on them. If you've got specific foods/recipes, we'll have better ideas.

i.e. grean beans = great with sesame oil, spinach = wonderful with olive oil and garlic, etc

-->if you don't want to bother with herbs/spices, you can make yourself a couple little bottles of infused oils or vinegars to use on your regular veg.

That's what I get for being a little lazy today. I briefly thought about searching for a similar post but couldn't be bothered... and my veg had already been tossed in the pot. Yes, those answered did help. I am wondering now if the Earth Farm? (bad memory....) soy free replacement is available in Canada, the website seemed to be for the US.

I used Almond Milk to help stick the herbs to my cauliflower and broccoli- it was actually quite nice.

So, it seems like I will be going on a hunt for flavorful oils, herbs, spices and Earth Balance soy free spread.

MAKE sure you get the SOY FREE Earth Balance -it is the RED tub. :) Hubby does the shopping (what a doll, I know) and made a boo-boo with the wrong EB and had to bring it back :(

BTW...you gave one of my favorite answers to a question about CC and people who do not believe it's possible--you said to pick your nose and wipe the boogers and then put your finger in the dip--that was you, right? That was AWESOME!!! :lol:

Ten thumbs up for Earth Balance...soy,dairy,gluten free, in the red and yellow container. It costs about $4.49 for a 15 oz. container. I use it all the time for baking and on vegetables. Before this product became available, I used coconut oil on veggies, and still do from time to time, especially on corn on the cob. I don't miss margarine at all.

    • I would be very careful in giving this kind of advice, she is in an advanced stage. I was there and one additional symptom that I was getting was a strong urge to commit suicide so eating gluten for three months might not be the way to go for some people. If a gluten free diet stop the problems them gluten is the problem or a least part of it. I eliminated MSG from my diet because I notice that the common denominator for some products that affected my well being was MSG. I eliminated oats because I notice that I would get canker sores every time I ate it. Wheat is what affect my brain the most, irritability gets uncontrollable, my mental capacity greatly diminish, rash in my arms appear, can't sleep,etc. Barley makes my stomach groan, and constipated. Will try testing how Rye affect me some later time. 
    • Hi Aly and welcome You may want to repost this in a new thread, that way more people will see it and can advise you.  I think you would be much better off getting the celiac test now, if you stay off gluten you will need to go back on it and that can be much harder. That said, loads of your symptoms look like they could be gluten related.  I had a persistent 'trapped nerve' for instance under my eye which would twitch like crazy. Since I went gluten-free doesn't happen any more.  Best of luck! Matt
    • Your scalp sounds like seborrheic dermatitis. I have that and although its better after going gluten-free its very persistent. The dermatologist recommended Nizoral shampoo for it and it does help. I think dairy has a big part to play with skin problems, for me at least. 
    • I was diagnosed this year and I live on Oahu. I have yet to meet another celiac, so that tells you something about our limitations here. I work in Waikiki and do frequent Rouffage. It is nothing fancy, small place, but keeps me fed when I need something. I also like Greens and Vines. It is a vegan restaurant and worth every penny. Greens and vines sets up at the KCC farmers market on Saturdays too. Places in Waikiki that do offer a gluten-free menu include, PF Changs, Dennys, Big City Diner and California Pizza kitchen. I do not trust those places due to the risk, but they "offer" gluten-free options. I did try and order a beer at Yard House in Waikiki. They label clearly states that it contained wheat, so yeah sent that back with the waiter. I have also tied Doraku in Waikiki. I called ahead and spoke with management. That went well and they offer gluten free soy sauce. There is a deli at Down to Earth Grocery store in Honolulu that has gluten-free options, but the whole foods here do not offer hot food that is gluten free. They do have a hot food bar, but you have to stick to the whole plain salad and veggie options. It's good to hear the hotels here are getting better, beyond Waikiki hotels there is no one really interested in being gluten free.
    • Just found this site today. Did you ever find one? I was diagnosed this year and I live on Oahu.
