Weekly Dairy-Free Meal Plan #1

This weekly family meal plan is dairy-free and full of fabulous dinner recipes for anyone wanting lactose-free options in their meal plan.

I recently asked The Organised Housewife community for some good dairy-free recipes, and I was inundated with fabulous lactose-free dinner and baking ideas (thank you all!) – so have rolled them into this fabulous dairy-free dinner plan.

The reason I asked was because one of my children has terrible eczema. After trying many things, we eliminated dairy from her diet this last month and it eased it! After having the smallest amount of dairy through the week it flared up again, so we are now on the hunt for some good dairy-free dinner and baking recipes. Feel free to share any recipes you recommend in the comments section below.

Sausages with Cauliflower Mash – “I make “cheesy mash” from cauliflower and nutritional yeast flakes (has a kind of parmesan-y flavour); also blitz it longer to use it as the white sauce in things like lasagne.” – Jasmine L.

Creamy Vegan White Bean Pasta – “Use cannellini or butter beans and a plant based milk as the base for a “creamy” pasta sauce. No nuts either which is good for those who can’t tolerate them.” – Sue S.
