I want to cook a decent meal for my best friend but her doctor has her on a food allergy diet. She can’t eat dairy, eggs, soy, nuts, gluten or wheat😕.

Any ideas would be helpful, Ty in advance.

Does she get a food plan from the doctor? This could help in planning.

I have 2 good friends with Celiac disease. We've cooked a simple roast chicken (tip: call the customer service line on your spice jars to double check as some do have gluten as a filler) with a zucchini and sweet potato hash, and have also done chicken saltimbocca - thin palliards wrapped with prosciutto and a sage leaf - with a side of cannellini, radish and olive salad (I do this one https://www.bonappetit... with green olives). For a non chicken option I have made a chipotle rubbed pork tenderloin with avocado and strawberry "salsa" with rice, a recipe I think I originally got from Cooking Light magazine.

You could do a dairy free shrimp and grits, same for polenta with mushrooms, jambalaya, paella, Vietnamese Bun (skipping the peanuts of course).

Some ideas:


pulled pork (which can be used for lettuce wraps or street tacos with corn tortillas or a hash)
braised short ribs
chili verde
roasted salmon like this one: https://www.epicurious...
Thai curries (just read the curry paste ingredients carefully)

Some of these can be made ahead and simply reheated or assembled right before eating. pair with roasted vegetables, rice, or a salad.
