Tasty, healthy food those who suffer from lactose-intolerance.
For the lactose-intolerant, it can be a rare event to enjoy a delicious meal without the telltale symptoms of gastrointestinal upset soon following. Sufferers quickly learn to avoid many foods and give up their favorite dishes.
200 Best Lactose-Free Recipes is a collection of tasty recipes for alternatives to dishes that usually contain substantial amounts of milk, butter, and cheese. Just as tasty and delicious as the originals, all the dishes use substitutions that eliminate or substantially reduce lactose levels while also providing additional health benefits.
The recipes include "cream" soups, salmon "mousse," "cheesecake" and even "ice cream," to name just a few of the delights waiting to be rediscovered and enjoyed again. The book features tempting dishes such as:
Each recipe has a full nutrient analysis as well as tips on non-dairy sources of calcium to help maintain dietary balance.

In this book you'll find recipes for all meals and every occasion, suitable for friends and family to enjoy regardless of their tolerance to milk. My goal was to produce lactose-free recipes that taste great!
Recipes included are of two types:
- those based on milk that have been revamped with lactose-free soy foods, lactose-free milk, fruit juice and stock
- those that make a significant contribution to calcium.
Many people ask me if I am lactose intolerant and hence my interest in this topic. No, I am not, at least not at this point, but I do have an array of inconvenient food allergies, which makes me sympathetic to the cause. My friend Christina, newly diagnosed with lactose intolerance, suggested I write this cookbook to help her. It made sense as I began to understand her predicament. Christina is a wonderful cook of Hungarian background. She loved making cream-filled tortes, creamy sauces and cheese dishes. You can imagine her frustration. Even a drop of milk in her cup of tea caused discomfort.
At this time, I was teaching a cooking class to a Chinese group, all lactose intolerant. They have been excellent teachers to me! At one of our first classes we did a kulebiaka of salmon, always popular with past classes. I observed with some concern and wonder as the women happily tucked into the asparagus salad, gobbled down the Atlantic salmon with the wild rice and mushroom stuffing, ate sparingly of the green mayonnaise, and only tasted the flaky, buttery pastry that enveloped the salmon. My first lesson. The rich foods with sour cream and butter caused this lactose-intolerant group digestive problems.
Tofu was my next lesson. This same group introduced me to their tofu, superior to the tofu of my experience from a supermarket vegetable counter. This tofu had a delicate flavor and texture; in fact, it reminded me of custard. They told me how to care for tofu and different ways to prepare it. All news to me. Five pounds of tofu can go a long way in recipe experimentation! When I discovered that, in addition to the creamy texture tofu gives dishes, it is also a calcium source if made with calcium chloride or calcium sulfate, I began to realize the potential for tofu in lactose-free cooking.
As I have researched and tested recipes for this book, I have learned to bake without butter, make delectable sauces without cream and use only a whiff of hard cheese for flavor. You do not need to feel deprived if you are lactose intolerant!
