Something a bit Different Lactose Free Menu Plan

1 Mar

Fancy something a bit different? ┬áLactose free food can be a little dull sometimes if you don’t shake it up occasionally. ┬áHere are some zinging recipes from around the globe. I had Thai coconut dal in a Thai restaurant and it was the best thing we ordered by far. It oddly doesn’t taste Indian at all. You’ll need plenty of garlic this week and a couple of spices that aren’t easily available – black mustard seed, sumac and curry leaves. Could it be the moment to check out the local Oriental deli?


  1. Middle eastern koftas
  2. Thai style coconut dal
  3. Sea Bream with olive oil mash, courgette and lemon zest
  4. Carrot and Coriander Soup Jamie Style
  5. Rice and Prawn One-Pot Wonder
