Gluten Free, Soy Free, Vegan Recipies

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

My 11 month old son is allergic to soy, eggs, milk, and meat. This is probably something he will outgrow by the time he is three.....but until then we need to find something to feed him. :huh: I have celiac disease. Does anyone have ANY recipes that would fit all of these criteria? I could add non gluten free things to his if I had to, but I'd prefer if there was something we could all eat.

allergic to meat? All meat? Red meat? Fish?

How did you figure this out?

Well, since you're looking for something the whole family can eat, I guess that means he's got teeth. So in that case, the very first thing which comes to mind is diced veggies like squash, carrots, celery, green beans, etc, with peas, and so forth. Boiled or steamed, coated with coconut oil, lightly seasoned. Would also be great on top of rice, buckwheat, or gluten-free pasta.

Please take a look at the following wonderful gluten-free cooking blogs:

Not all recipes will be free of milk, eggs, and meat, but both Elana and Karina have a number of Vegan recipes. Karina has discovered over a period of a few years that she is sensitive to a number of foods and has eliminated LOTS of things from her diet. I believe that all of her recent recipes are Vegan.

Good luck!

Yes, all meat. He can't tolerate protein. He started passing blood the night we brought him home from the hospital. We took him to our pediatric GI (who is the best in the area), and he diagnosed him. He gets most of his nutrition from a speciality formula that costs us 50 a can (that lasts about 3 days). He will probably be on it much longer than babies are normally on formula. But he's getting bigger and WANTS regular food. I forgot to mention that he can't have beans either. Thank you everyone for your suggestions! I think tonight I'm going to try him with gluten-free pasta and tomato sauce. :D

Coconut milk and almond milk can replace milk in some recipes. Quinoa is equal to meat protein. It has all the amino acids etc. It can be cooked and used like rice or other grains and also in a porrige for breakfast.

I was going to suggest rice and legumes, as it will be important for your son to get a diet containing all the essential amino acids to make for "complete protein".

However, if he is allergic to beans, as well as soy, milk, eggs, & and any kind of meat, then I'd suggest talking a dietician who is familiar with the celiac diet, just to ensure you're not missing anything nutritionally.

He can get a complete set of "essential" amino acids by combining brown rice with either legums, seeds, nuts or wheat. This means that for you to make a good meal for both of you, it will require brown rice, with some kind of seeds or nuts. Hopefully you don't have a nut allergy. Along with this, combine a variety of fruits and vegetable to make sure you get everything you need. I hear really good things about quinoa, and it makes better pasta than brown rice!

Gluten Free diet combined with other allergies can give folks some nutritional deficiencies if you don't choose your food carefully. Hope that helps.

I'm Extremely allergic to soy in any form....so I know how hard it is to find food without it. I had a small sweet potato (nuked in the microwave) this morning for bkfst......with Agave syrup. Sometimes, I add raisins or prunes or figs, walnuts or almonds too.......and it's delicious, healthy and quick! Potatoes have lots of vitamins and minerals....and sweet potatoes help keep me 'regular'....along with the raisins. You have to just be really creative..I hope this helps.

Earthbalance Spread is dairy-free and recently came out with a version that is soy-free too.

Thank God none of us have a nut allergy :D Luke gets all of his protein from his formula. It's broken down into individual amino acids that he can digest. So I'm not worried about trying to fill that gap for him. For me, I've gone this far without having to be a short order cook for my family (although it seems like everyone has one need or another), but this might really require it. I just want him to at least have food that LOOKS like everyone else's. He's little enough not to know the difference. I made his pasta last night without meat, but the rest of us had hamburger in it for instance. Luckily the doctor says Luke will outgrow this for the most part. Worst case scenario, he won't ever be able to tolerate milk.....and compared to this, that's not too bad. Thank you everyone for your suggestions and help!

I just found your message. I have found a fabulous book by Amanda Grant that features quite a bit of fast and delicious vegan meals that are mostly soy-free and very easily made gluten free. It's called Fresh and Fast Vegan Pleasures. When i substitute for soy sauce, I use the soy substitute in The Rice Diet using a vegan low sodium bouillion cube, molasses, and the spices listed in it plus a tiny pinch of turmeric. I am allergic to nuts, so I will substitute pumpkin seeds or pine nuts (which are seeds) and grind them in a clean coffee grinder if dry nut flour is called for. I use vietnamese rice starch wraps whereever wonton wrappers are called for. I also use many of the recipes in the Veganomicon and substitute some kind of mushroom if silken tofu is called for and either yellow squash, eggplant or zucchini if I don't want mushrooms.

I realize you are cooking for adults and a child, so you may want to make a separate seasoning sauce to spice up otherwise plain food for yourself. I liquify seeded habanero or jalapeno peppers plus lime juice and a pinch of salt and freeze the puree in tiny ice cube trays. I can add it to my meal to add zip. Works well with basil, olive oil & garlic, too. Do look into the child friendly recipes in the Vegan Handbook and any squash recipe by Christine Pirello.

Gotta go. will post more soon.
