From The Lactose-Free Cookbook by Sheri Updike.
Have your or someone in your family given up favorite foods because of Lactose Intolerance? Or are you popping a pill before you can enjoy a meal? You are not alone! One in five Americans-and 80% of the world's population-reacts to milk products with pain and embarrassing discomfort. And today, diary products are hidden in almost everything-cold cuts, bread, medication, frozen or packaged goods, and more! What can you do?
Ask Sheri Updike. Determined to give choices and bring the joy of eating back to her 100% Lactose-Intolerant husband, she discovered how to put the "Yum" back into lactose-free cakes and cookies, soups and sauces, au gratin side dishes, ice cream-even a luxurious quiche!
Now dip into 200 foolproof recipes the whole gamily will love-including several prizewinning dishes-along with all of Sheri's secrets for making traditional dairy dishes without lactose products! Exceptionally delicious and so good no one (and that's a promise) will guess they're lactose free, mealtimes can be fun again-chock full of everything you and your whole family love to eat! Sheri includes:
- Brand-name products that are 100% lactose free
- Best diary substitutes
- Special quick fixin' foods-ready in under 30 minutes
- Breakfast, lunch, dinner dishes...
- and party fare too.
- 1/4 cup safflower oil margarine, Hollywood
- 1 garlic clove, minced
- 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
- 1 1-pound loaf The French Connection bread (page 81),
- or any lactose-free French bread (see page 25)
- 1 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese alternative, Soyco
Preheat the oven to broil. In a mixing bowl, blend together the safflower margarine, garlic, and oregano. Spread on slices of French bread and then sprinkle generously with the Parmesan cheese alternative.
Place on a rack in the preheated broiler. Broil until the tops are light brown and bubbly, approximately 3 minutes.
Makes a great addition to any Italian dinner or served as an appetizer.
For a stronger oregano flavor, use 1 1/2 teaspoons finely chopped fresh oregano. In place of the Parmesan cheese alternative, you can use imported, aged Parmesan cheese and grate it. Try a little first to test the level of tolerance in your system.
