Hi! My name is Nancy and I am the mother of a child who has food allergies -wheat, soy, dairy, chicken and beef. When I found out I did what any parent would do -I stocked up on cookbooks dedicated to those with allergies and then cleaned out the kitchen of all the offending foods. Afterall, we weren't going to eat lasagna in front of our son while he snacks on a rice cake.

Now nearly a year into this I've figured out how to alter recipes, seperate ingredients and give my family food that they all love (and can eat) without me having to make multiple meals.

Please take advantage of what I've learned!

Indian stir-fry vegetables

This recipe is: vegan, wheat free, dairy free, nut free, egg free, rice free, corn free, soy free, gluten free, potato free.

Variations: This recipe is incredibly flexible. Just subtract anything that you are allergic to and substitute it with something you love. It's all in the spices!

2-3 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 small onion, chopped
1 garlic clove, minced
1-inch piece fresh ginger, grated
1 teaspoon chili powder
2 teaspoons ground coriander
1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric
1 pound diced mixed vegetables (ie. cauliflower, carrots peas, garbanzo beans, potatoes)
4 tablespoons lemon juice

Heat the oil in a large wok or heavy-bottom saucepan. Add onion and gently fry for 5-10 minutes or until lightly browned. Add the garlic, ginger, chili powder, coriander, turmeric and a pinch of salt. Fry for 2-3 minutes, add the diced vegetables, and stir-fry for another 2-3 minutes.

Add the lemon juice. Stir well and add a little water. Cover and cook gently for about 10 minutes, or until the vegetables are tender, adding a little more water if needed, to prevent the vegetables from sticking to the bottom.

Serve with rice and/or naan.
