Lactose-free appetizers

Let's start with an idea for a lactose-free starter. A fresh salad is always possible and provides you with vitamins.

Pal Bean Cookies

Pal beans are healthy and therefore a good start for your meal or as a snack. You can use dried beans or canned ones. For eight servings you need:

  • 400 g Pal beans
  • 150 grams of flour
  • 6 tablespoons oil of your choice
  • 4 sage stems
  • 1 tsp paprika powder (spicy or smoked)
  • 1 clove garlic
  • A bit of salt

Crush the garlic, heat up the beans (cook them if you can, if they are canned) and the sage stalks. Now let her go. Remove the garlic (if you wish), but be sure to remove the sage stalks. Puree about 2 tablespoons of the beans with 300 ml of water / cooking water from the beans and mix in the flour. Then mix the remaining beans, maybe some sage and the salt.

Now you can shape the dough into simple cookies and fry them in the oil - press them down to ensure they are thoroughly cooked through. To keep them warm, you can put them in the preheated oven (about 80 degrees). 

Lactose-free main courses

Vegan nut roast

The vegan nut roast is even popular in the UK - you can eat it with cranberries. For the lactose-free roast you need:

  • 125 grams of walnuts
  • 300 grams of red lentils
  • 1 carrot

  • 2 sprigs of thyme
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 slice of stale bread
  • 3 tbsp ground flaxseed

You start by cooking the lentils according to the instructions and then mashing them up with a fork. Now roast the walnuts in a pan without fat, peel the carrot and celery, core the apple and grate the ingredients. Finely chop the onion, garlic, thyme and toasted walnuts.

Now heat oil in a pan, sauté the onion and garlic. Add the carrot, the apple and also the celery and sauté for a good 5 minutes. Next, put the flaxseeds, lentils, walnuts, flour, thyme and bread in the pan and season everything with pepper, salt and oregano.

Now pour the mixture into a loaf tin that you have previously lined with baking paper. Press everything down firmly and smooth the surface well. Now leave the roast in the oven at 190 degrees for 50 minutes - done!

Lactose free dessert

  • 200 g grated coconut

FAQ on lactose-free recipes

Is lactose-free cooking difficult?

No - to be able to cook a delicious and nutritious meal lactose-free, you only have to leave out the dairy products. True to the motto: leave out everything you don't want. It only sounds complicated at first glance, but there are so many delicious dishes that don't even need lactose.

Baked lactose-free, is that possible?

Goes! Instead of cheese you can simply use yeast melt. The yeast flakes are simply mixed with a little water and can thus be used on a pizza or a casserole. Yeast flakes melt wonderfully and taste very spicy. Insider Tip: Yeast is great for your hair and skin!

What do I use instead of cream?

Conventional cream made from cow's milk contains a lot of lactose. Fortunately, there are cream substitutes: including soy cream. You can not only use them for wonderfully creamy sauces, you can also use them with vegan cream stiffeners for cakes, tarts and other delicacies. The plant-based alternative to cow cream is also significantly lower in terms of calories and fat.

Lactose-free yoghurts and quark: does it taste good?

Everything stands and falls with the spices. Or with a sweetener. Or fruit! Not everyone likes the plant-based alternatives to conventional yoghurt or quark - but you don't have to eat them pure. Try fruit or honey - berries, for example, are always good in any form for a delicious dessert or snack.
