Egg-free diets


If you need to follow an egg-free diet, you'll love our recommendations, advice and sources of reading, recipes and ideas. 

Kellys eggsThose following an egg-free diet might think their recipe options are limited, but not so: we have looked at all 900 recipes on the site to bring you a very extensive list of over 500 gorgeous meals for any occasion. There are even egg-free cakes, such as Delia's wonderful Very Sticky Prune and Date Cake. One thing you must watch out for is that any recipe containing meringues, mayonnaise and hollandaise will contain eggs; also, eggs are sometimes used to thicken sauces and soups, so beware of these too.

You might be able, in some instances, to omit eggs from Delia's recipes - for example, where they have been used as a garnish, or added element, but please remember that we have not tested recipes with these omissions.

Delia's egg-free recipes:

Meat recipes
Fish and seafood
Poultry and game
Vegetarian and vegetable dishes
Pasta, gnocchi, pizza and noodles
Rice dishes
Snacks, lunches and light suppers
Preserves, sauces etc
Cakes, biscuits and sweets
