If you’re looking for some new dishes to try that are allergy friendly, take a peek at these! These easy recipes are the ones that I make for my family again and again. We love these simple breakfast, dinner, and dessert recipes that are free of the top allergens.
Making food that everyone likes is hard sometimes, and it’s even harder when you are dealing with multiple food allergies.
You can still enjoy amazing meals without the allergens. There are hundreds of allergy friendly recipes for main dishes, desserts, and appetizers on my site, but I wanted to share some of the top recipes that my family enjoys regularly.
Even though I make new recipes fairly often, there are dozens of recipes here on the blog that I make time and time again because they are our favorites! So I thought I’d share my top 15 favorites here today.
Easy Dairy Free Chicken Coconut Curry – This is a classic recipe that’s so comforting. If you have a cashew allergy like we do, you know how frustrating it is to not be able to enjoy Indian food anymore.
We used to love chicken korma, but it wasn’t safe for us after my son was diagnosed with a cashew allergy. We had to come up with a suitable substitute, and this easy dairy free, nut free curry is it!
This is really comforting, flavorful, and filling. Kids and adults enjoy this easy recipe.
Roasted Sweet Potato and Bean Quesadillas -There’s nothing like a quick quesadilla for an easy lunch or dinner. This version is really flavorful with roasted sweet potatoes, beans, and melty, spicy, dairy free cheese.
I go over all the allergy friendly ingredients I used to make the perfect quesadilla in the recipe post. These are a big hit with everyone who tries them!
Spinach and Potato Curry – This is probably Darryl’s favorite curry type dish that I make. This vegan curry is so easy, and so good! The coconut milk makes it very rich, and the potatoes and spinach are just perfect together.
This is so good with Jasmine rice, or even just plain!
Vegan Cheesy Roasted Cauliflower – This is a super simple recipe, but a perfect side dish for a weeknight dinner. This cauliflower is roasted perfectly and has a delicious savory flavor that’s hard to beat.
Even if you’re not a cauliflower fan, you will want to give this recipe a try. It’s a favorite over here!
Cheesy Kale Chips – I cannot make these kale chips fast enough, they just get gobbled up over here! It’s crazy.
These are crispy, flavorful, savory, and so hard to stop eating! If you haven’t tried kale chips, you need to give these a try. My son loves them, and they are a great way to enjoy kale.
Garlic Spaghetti – This is such an easy meal, and it’s perfect for when your pantry is practically bare. It’s simple but really satisfying, and your kitchen will smell awesome.
This recipe works well with your favorite gluten free pasta. We like to use spaghetti, but you could use penne or macaroni as well.
Gluten Free and Vegan Macaroni and Cheese – Everyone loves mac and cheese. This just gets made really often around here.
We enjoy this macaroni with Daiya cheddar cheese – I find that it melts well in this recipe. The flavor is good, too!
If you have a different brand of dairy free cheese you enjoy, feel free to use that.
White Bean and Potato Soup with Lemon and Dill – We love this soup in the winter time. It’s easy to make and has a nice flavor with the lemon and dill.
This soup can be pureed for a creamier texture, or you can leave it chunky if you like lots of whole beans in your soup.
Crunchy Broccoli Salad – This is a favorite salad in our family… there’s something about the combination of broccoli, red onions, bacon, and the sweet dressing. So yummy!
If you’re vegan, you can leave the bacon out of this salad – it will still be very tasty.
Gluten Free Egg Free Meatloaf – My boys love meatloaf, and this recipe is always welcome around here. This meatloaf is free of eggs, and made with just a few ingredients.
We like to serve this with the best dairy free mashed potatoes.
Buttery Coconut Granola – My favorite simple, basic granola recipe. You can start with this base and add whatever you like to it. It’s easy and makes a great breakfast or snack!
Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins – As I’ve mentioned before, we always have bananas that are turning brown, so we often have reason to make banana muffins. This is the recipe I turn to all the time.
These are moist, tender, and perfect for a quick snack or an easy breakfast. These freeze well, too!
You can use chocolate chips, or leave them out if you prefer. These could also be made with some pumpkin seeds or sunflower seeds for a little crunch.
Beat the Winter Blues Smoothie – I make smoothies pretty often, and this is one of my favorites! I love the color, and it does have a lot of antioxidants, so it’s great for cold and flu season.
This is a refreshing way to start your morning! Use fresh or frozen berries – either will work well!
Double Chocolate Cupcakes – If you need an easy treat for a birthday or any occasion, these double chocolate cupcakes will do the trick!
These gluten free vegan cupcakes are super moist and the frosting is smooth and chocolatey. Kids and adults love these!
Crunchy Spiced Chickpeas – Nut free snacks can be hard to come by, and these are so delicious! Roasted chickpeas are an easy way to get some extra protein into your diet. These have great flavor and a very satisfying crunch.
