Navigating diverse dietary preferences is a common challenge. Fortunately, most grocery stores now offer a variety of ingredients to accommodate different dietary restrictions and lifestyles. With the right choices, creating delicious home-cooked meals aligning with specific preferences has never been more accessible. Chef Tamara Madison shares three tasty food swaps that everyone at the dinner table can enjoy and love.
The swap version caters to those seeking dairy-free and gluten-free options without compromising taste. The classic version is made with buttermilk, which helps tenderize the chicken. Here, we use coconut milk instead, which still has the fat to give it a delicious flavour.
A gluten-free twist on the classic fish and chips/fish tacos combo. We’ve replaced regular flour with the magic of rice flour and swapped beer for sparkling water, maintaining that unbeatable texture and crunch. Adapt to your preferences: wheat tortilla and flour for gluten-tolerant, or go gluten-free with rice flour and a corn tortilla. For our vegetarian friends, oyster or enoki mushrooms offer a meat-like texture and still very flavourful.
This is a rasta pasta, a Jamaican-inspired masterpiece made with jerk chicken. For those without restrictions, the classic version uses heavy cream, and the sauce is finished with freshly grated grana Padano cheese. However, since this may not suit those with dairy sensitivities, fear not! We’ve skillfully replaced cream with rich, full-fat coconut milk.
