Oat based banana Icecream
I can't have dairy or soy, so bought an icecream maker to make my own icecream. This was my first experiment.

2 Tb rum (optional)
1tsp vanilla essence
1/5 cup oat milk (or other "milk")
3 mashed bananas (1.5 cups)
4 egg yolks
75g brown sugar

Whisk sugar and yolks in a bowl.
Boil rum and essense until almost dry (to remove alcohol) Add oat milk.
Bring gently to the boil and whisk into egg yolk mixture. Put back on a low heat and stir for a bit (I found it didn't thicken to custard consistency but maybe I was just impatient)

At this point I just mixed in the banana, which cooked and thickened. It might be better to cool the custard then mix the banana in with an electric beater, that way it wouldn't cook and would be less lumpy.

Cool custard. Use in iceceam maker.

A bit plain but otherwise very nice. Based on this (vegan) recipe which added coffee, that would probably work. Personally next time I think I'll add ginger and spices. Maybe some nuts. Would probably be just as nice if not nicer with coconut or almond milk but oat milk was what I had in the house :) (Also I can't eat coconut)

Some links to posts of mine
Hello! I just found this community, and since I have an odd collection of intolerances thought I'd share the recipes I've found on the off chance anyone with the same issues comes along.

I have my full list here, lots of random stuff from soy and dairy to paprika and watercress. I was off gluten for a few months which was SUCH A PAIN, you gluten-free guys have my respect for sticking with it :)

Anyway, the *-free food tag at my lj has all the stuff I've found, since my issues have changed over the last few years the restrictions on the food vary. There's more at the the recipes tag but that's more recipes I like which happen to match my intolerances.

I also just posted Orange-oat crepes, custard, and licorice icecream, a successful attempt to find something to do with the oat-milk based licorice icecream I bought. Not gluten free, though the custard could be very easily.

Current Mood: cheerful

Warm Potato Salad and Welcome to Our New Community!
...that can be served cold too. This is one of those dishes that is perfect for work potlucks (which, in my case, will be made next week).

Three large red potatoes cut into medium sized chunks (boiled but not mushy)
Two cups of green beans cut to your liking, fresh or frozen works best (lightly blanched)
two or three cloves of minced garlic
half of a medium red onion chopped
fresh basil chopped (to taste)
salt and pepper to taste (I usually use Kosher salt)
3 tablespoons of yummy olive oil
2 tablespoons of red wine or balsamic vinegar

Whisk the last five ingredients together and slowly toss in the potatoes and green beans

Sometimes I add a little sauteed chicken and/or fresh radishes to this. No pictures just yet :(

Also, hi everyone! I'm looking forward to your recipes!
