So my daughter is allergic to dairy/ soy! Anyone have some good recipes for dinner that have no milk, cream, cheese etc. I'm sure my daughter is sick of chicken nuggets LOL! I work full time so fast easy recipes would be great! Thanks in advance!

I cook egg noodles in Swanson's chicken broth and then saute them in garlic, olive oil, and basil. It's quick, easy, and dairy and soy free.

Buy the book "The allergy self-help cookbook" by Marjorie Hurt Jones, R.N. It has over 300 recipes for almost every allergy imaginable. I bought mine for about $20 but it is well worth it. You can also use some of those recipes to help you think of new ones. 3 yrs later and I still look back at in it for new ideas. My daughter is allergic to cows milk, wheat products and egg whites. She lived off of hot dogs w/out the bun untill I found this book. But basically you will have to go back to cooking from scratch. Almost all quick dinners in stores have soy. Also Wal-mart has a new selection of allergy free foods you could check out. Good luck.

I am going through the same thing, you might want to skip the chicken nuggets, any processed meats have milk.

You really have to go back in time and cook from scratch

We got some vegan cookbooks from the library and replaced the soy milk with almond milk. You may have to go through a lot of books because the grownup ones seem to focus on gourmet and college student ones focus on tofu, but there are quite a few good easy recipes out there. My personal favorite so far is 1000 Vegan Recipes by Robin Robertson. A friend loaned me The Allergy Self-Help Cookbook. We haven't tried many of the recipes yet, but it has a lot of good info on food substitutions
Good Luck

There are also some pre-made pizza crusts with no dairy or soy. We use these to make pizza to each dietary need (one allergic to milk and tomato, intolerant to soy and citrus, another lactose intolerant, another cannot have protein...). The fake cheese we just lay on top the pizza as a slice, cut more to make it cover the whole thing, and bake like usual. It tastes great!

We do a lot of stir fry foods, no soy sauce on the portions with allergy/intolerance to it (use salt instead on theirs). There's a typical stir fry, just various veggies and chicken or beef. And we also use ring bologna sliced in bite-sized pieces with california mix vegetables. I do not like how squash turns out stir fried, so we avoid those mixtures.

Be careful with fish fillets - we've found a few with milk/soy on the breading. Fresh fillets vs frozen is a great way to avoid this. We make mashed potatoes without milk. We often substitute Rice milk in recipes (still can't use Kraft mac n cheese as there is dairy in the dry ingredients as well). Also on cereals. Omelets made with rice milk, no dairy.

There is a dairy-free sliced cheese that really melts! It's at WalMart and brand is Sandwich-Made, right next to Kraft. Super cheap, too, and again, no soy, no milk. Excellent way to be able to still make grilled cheese sandwiches! Use margarine in place of butter.
