Living without lactose
Asked on 26 Oct 2017 by QuimperleKitty
How about some recipes for us sufferers who are lactose intolerant please? Not to just substitute soya alternatives for milk/cream/cheese.........
With problems digesting lactose come other problems such as mal-digestion of beans and tomatoes and most of us crave cheesey/creamy/milky looking recipes.....sigh!
How about toasted almond milk? I made Delia’s Rice Pudding last week and used it in place of the evaporated and whole milk.
Old-fashioned Rice Pudding
If you tell us what sort of recipes you would like to be able to eat, we might be able help with suggesting how they could be adapted.
Hi Lindsey, thanks for your prompt response and the recipe for rice pudding.
Cakes I have covered - with oil instead of dairy (sadly not rich choc brownies) but have found nothing for baked cheesecake. I suffer soya cream sub in my coffee, but it is lovely rich creamy (not grainy) pasta sauces that I crave. Something to substitute for mascapone/fromage frais/creme fraiche. A rich quiche recipe............ A rich dairy-free pastry would be good also............
I think I'll stop there or I will fill up the whole page.
FYI. I have a plentiful supply of fresh walnuts, hazelnuts, chestnuts, apples (and cider apples) and eggs at the moment.
Coconut milk or coconut cream will add richness and a creamy texture..

And pasta dishes don’t always need cream to taste rich and smooth and beans are a good ingredient for a smooth creamy texture too.

Tuscan White Bean Soup
This linguini recipe will use up some of your walnuts and tastes rich without any cream..
Linguine with Mussels
This chilli is still rich and delicious with the avocado even without the soured cream.
Black Bean Chilli
Likewise with this soup..

And how about making these with some of your apples…

I’ll keep on thinking!
