Three-Course Dairy- and Gluten-Free Dinner

"A deliciously light healthy meal" is the article called this complete dinner, created by Maria Cachia.

The starter, a delicate pumpkin soup which may be served either hot or cold with Parmesan shavings is the perfect comfort food especially coming in after the cold and rain.

With Dean Martin’s let it snow, let it snow, let it snow, softly playing in the background we moved onto the main course, tuna steaks marinated in a mustard sauce which went perfectly with the roasted green and orange peppers offering a balance between the two.

To finish off the great evening, the dessert, a wonderful apple crumble with vanilla pods and small blobs of custard was the perfect end to the dinner, without leaving you feeling too full or bloated but comfortably satisfied.

The complete recipes for the dinner can be found in the article.

Translations into American:
Aubergine = eggplant.
Courgettes = zucchini.
Castor sugar = superfine sugar.

Skip the parmesan shavings. And doubly note that goat's butter is exactly as much dairy and lactose as cow's butter. Somebody must have hit Ms. Cachia over the head with bad British nutritional advice. Stick to dairy-free margarine.
