On Tuesday, June 2, 2015, Kids With Food Allergies hosted food allergy cookbook author Colette Martin, author of Learning to Bake Allergen-Free and The Allergy-Free Pantry, for a webinar: "Pantry Solutions Without Milk, Eggs, Soy, Wheat, Gluten, or Nuts."
Colette showed us how to create allergen-free replacements for commonly used pantry items.
The video is below:
Colette talked about:
- How to create your own dairy-free milk
- Substituting eggs in recipes
- Why sometimes egg substitutes fail
- The basics of food labeling
- Creating your own sunbutter and flaxseed mayonnaise
- Creating your own gluten-free flour blend: the recipe for that is below.
We thank Colette for donating her time to do this webinar for us, and we also thank Mylan for their generous sponsorship to provide this education to families.
How to Cook and Bake Free of Allergens - Learning how to bake and cook without typical foods like milk, egg and wheat may seem overwhelming at first. In many cases, you can easily and successfully use alternatives. Other times, it may be easier to find a new recipe. It all depends on the role of the allergen in the original recipe. This section explains more.
