So I’m having 2 other couples over for dinner this Friday and one of the girls is always on a weird diet restriction of some sort….and this time she’s decided she can’t have eggs, butter or dairy…(milk, butter)
What the heck can I make that the others won’t have to suffer?

I think you have lots of options. What kinds of food do you like to cook?
You could do a teriyake glazed salmon or chicken, fried rice and some grilled veggies

Check out nomnompaleo.com and paleomg.com. They have tons of recipes that don’t call for any dairy products and I’m sure you’ll find plenty without eggs too.
I’ve been following those websites and recipes for quite some time now and love every one that I’ve made so far.

Any meat and vegetable dish would work.
There is always tacos (can be made with beans and rice to beef them up), then others can add cheese if they like.
Tacos pretty much work for all diets, as they can be very easily customized.

@andielovesj: I second a taco bar. Or a chili bar would be good too. That way each guest can customize their meal.

I was actually thinking tacos…but I don’t think she could eat whatever is used to wrap them with, they have egg in them (though I bet it’s artificial)
I thought about chili too…but then thought it might be too casual… but with cheddar and sour cream on top mmmm (too bad she wouldn’t be able to put any on)
Now Im thinking of doing a roast chicken, lemon potatos (greek restaurant style) and greek salad

I have a friend whose little one had some crazy issues while breastfeeding, so she had to go no soy, no dairy, no gluten. I have two recipes, an amazing braised short rib recipe (if you’re interested, I can type it out, there’s no link), and an African Peanut Stew (http://spryliving.com/recipes/african-peanut-stew/ We use chicken instead of edamame and serve with rice).

Some sort of mexican would be a good choice

@westcoast_girl: Most wraps do not contain eggs (in Canada), nor do most hard shells made with corn.

@Jess1483: I’m going to have to make it after work, and time will be really limited, or I’d consider the ribs mmmmm

If you like fish, you can do salmon with a spice rub. For a side, I like to cook quinoa in veggie broth, with 1 tsp cumin and 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper. Then I add in some canned black beans and frozen corn.
Another super easy dish is a pot roast. I salt/pepper my roast, sear it in a Dutch oven/large pot and set it aside. In the same pot, I add garlic, olive oil, and a chopped onion and cook until the onions are soft. Then I make a “nest” of various other chopped veggies (carrots, potatoes, celery, etc), pour 1/2 cup red wine in the middle, and put the seared roast on top. Then cover and bake at 250 for 5-6 hours. Mmmmmm.

Tacos! Focus on guacamole, corn salsa, lettuce, beans, tomatos, peppers and such as toppings instead of cheese and sour cream. You can still offer those as toppings and those who can indulge, will, but she will have plenty to eat.

Make something Asian! Aside from Indian food, very few Asian dishes use dairy products. I would go for a Thai curry using coconut milk.

Love the taco bar idea. That way the other guests don’t have to be stuck with one person’s fad diet.
