Yes I know “Egg-free Quiche” is a bit like “tyre-free car” and it was the first thing Max said .. “Mum, aren’t quiches made from eggs?” Well yes, generally they are however as part of my prep for the GF & Allergy Show this weekend I have been testing all sorts of things. Egg-free recipes have been a focus as it’s not something we generally do but of course eggs are a common allergen. The quiches turned out to be a total winner. All three boys gave them the tick – YES!!! So today Max has 4 kumara (sweet potato) mini, egg-free quiches, a slice of zucchini pizza and ironically 2 cooked egg yolks!!
Joe has pretty much the same but traded the yolks and 2 quiches for a sausage.
Max at school camp so Joe gets to be chief tester (guinea pig)! Yesterday I was making all sorts of wraps and rolls ready for my stint at the GF & Allergy Show so that’s Joe’s lunchbox today. And I can tell you he’ll be delighted. He has veggies and a little cheese in the nori and rice paper and then an egg wrap with cheese and apple chutney … http://www.theartofnutrition.co.nz/blog
Rice Paper Rolls
Yesterday I was doing a big kitchen stint (when I have time I bulk cook) as today and tomorrow we have after school activities that limit what I can do for dinner. I had 250gms of mince beef that needed using and also had to step up and provide Max with some exciting vegetarian fare. Decided to make some rice paper rolls. As I had water boiling and frying pans going it wasn’t a big deal. Did mince, fried mushrooms and broccoli plus ginger for Roy & Joe. For Max (at his behest) I did raw, crushed peanuts, chopped lettuce, sesame & tamari, raw mushrooms, brown rice noodles and grated cheese (not very Asian with the cheese I know but it was the compromise and actually tasted OK!!). Max got 4 rice paper rolls and Joe 3 plus some chick pea crackers and I know they will love this lunch. A little different and something they will really enjoy. Go Mum!!
