Recipes for PKU or low protien diets
Something a bit different for hot weather and PKU meals. I came across this as a recipe for a ‘no-cook’ soup but in both temperature and texture it is best described as a smoothie. 2g protein, Low Protein
Salads come to the fore in hot weather, helped along by the often overlooked fennel. This salad is 1g protien per serve, or can be made protein-free. You need to start this salad one hour before serving. Serves two as a main or four people as a side salad.
PKU and heatwave friendly 'no-cook' recipe fennel and 'cheese salad'. Can be made phe-free, low-protein, or add protein as needed.
A protein-free carrot cake recipe with picutures. It is great for PKU celebrations or the occasional treat. (0.45g of protein in the entire cake)
A reliable recipe for making PKU bread in a breadmaker. I've used this recipe for years, and it consistently makes a soft, white loaf. Plus, how to avoid that hard ring of flour and using psyllium husks.
When I asked my friends for their recommendations for my first ‘fish’ finger supper, the reply was ‘I haven’t had those since I was 10.’ There is no reason for fish fingers to be a child only meal, we face too many food restrictions for that nonsense.
Quick, easy dinners to satisfy the taste buds and the PKU diet. Three of the recipes are Phe-free. The last has 2.5g Phe per adult portion with option to add more if needed.
The need to double up on meals is a common problem for people with PKU. Hence a 2-in-1 lasagne. A single dish with one half PKU lasagne and the other non-PKU lasagne.
With spring just around the corner, I’ve dusted off a few easy recipes to ‘spring’ out of the lunch rut. A PKU friendly Waldorf salad for those days when the sun comes out between the clouds. A protein free Mac & cheese for the days when we need a bit of comfort food, and quick soups.
