I need some help. I am not fond of tofu, however I need to start eating it because it is high in protein and I don't really like to eat meat other than chicken and ground turkey. Also, I just found out that I am gluten and lactose intolerant and I need to find new recipes. I was wondering if someone has recipes or a website with good recipes that they have tried before. Thanks in advance!!

Some websites that I like are: www.celiac.com, www.liveglutenfreely.com and www.yummly.com (you put in your allergies and it will give you recipes to accomodate). Hope you find some recipes that you like.

Look into asian food--they have lots of fun ways to cook and season your tofu. Some soy sauce is made with wheat, so look for wheat-free tamari (that's a dark-style soy sauce) or a Thai soy sauce.

My friends mom is allergic to wheat and gluten. This is one recipe for Potato soup, thats really delicious! You make mashed potatoes, leave out the butter if you can't have it, use only milk (or even lactaid if you are allergic to dairy) and salt/pepper if you want. You use that as the binder for the soup, just add milk, and enough mashed potaotes to bind the soup, you can add whatever veggies or meat that you want. As far as Tofu recipes, I have made some tofu recipes before but nothing that has really jumped out at me. But You can definitly substitute, tofu for beans, as beans have a lot of protien. (dry beans, pinto beans, black beans,etc) Good luck!

Maybe we can help eachother out? www.freefromdairy.com I have been dairy free since June and feel AMAZING since it is out of my system. How are you doing without it? NOtice the difference yet?

Hi Jessica, I am a vegetarian, but my husband and kids are not, so I know it can be hard. My blog is all about creating meatless meals for meat-eaters and I also convert a lot of Steph O'Dea's GF recipes to vegetarian recipes on there. You can find her GF blog at crockpot365.blogspot.com and my vegetarian blog at http://veggieconverter.com ... I think you might like Monday's tofu recipe for Mock Tuna Paninis (make yours w/ GF bread and the rest should be fine) at http://www.veggieconverter.com/2011/01/v...

I forgot this one until I made it tonight.
14 oz silken tofu
1 tsp ea garlic powder, basil, oregano, parsley, & salt
1/4 C olive oil
dash pepper
Whirl in the blender or food processor until smooth. It replaces the cheese in your favorite lasagne or baked spaghetti recipe.

Try Cook It Allergy Free. And if you have an iPhone or iPad, she has an app, too. She has great recipies and all allergens are in red that you can tap on and get a list of substitutes to fit your allergie need. She has a lot more on the app as well. You can also find her on Facebook.

one website that I get a lot of recipes that are gluten-free from is crockpot365.blogspot.com. I also have a few vegetarian recipes on my blog at www.52mealplans.com. You can get protein from beans and lentils, too (which I use a lot of).

My kid is allergic to ALL dairy, wheat, and chicken/eggs. You can find great (i.e. DELICIOUS) allergy cookbooks at Barns n Noble, or your local bookstore. Everything from snacks to meals to dessert!

Also, there are lots of faux meat style tofu so you can make like chicken nuggets and such. Beans and pea have a lot of protein have a lot as well... sound lame, but beans and rice can be delicious! Hope that hellps!

Press the water out of extra firm tofu and mash it up. Fry it with your favorite sausage and some green pepper and onion. Eat it with salsa.
Silken tofu in the blender with your favorite fake milk, some soft fruit and maybe a little sweetener.
