THE OPENING BOUNCE

Hi and welcome to my first blog.

With footy fever in the air and the weather starting to improve, BBQs are on the menu. For those of us that suffer from multiple food allergies and intolerances, enjoying delicious and easy-to-prepare food that looks and tastes as good as everyone else’s (or better!) is important. So, if you are heading to footy grandfinal party, or taking advantage of BBQ weather, you can now enjoy an allergy-friendly hamburger with the lot just like everyone else. Yours will look so delicious, everyone else will be wanting what you’ve got!

Every recipe I develop is free from wheat, gluten, corn, yeast, dairy, egg, peanuts, tree nuts, sesame seeds, tomato and seafood. Yes, you heard right, every single recipe I develop is free from 11 allergens and still tastes amazing – empty plates are my speciality! Through my blog I will share with you recipes, as well as helpful facts, handy tips and allergy-friendly product and company reviews. There will also be funny stories and experiences from my journey managing food allergies and intolerances, which I am sure many of you have experienced too. I want you to be equipped with the knowledge, resources and recipe to enable you to be confident in cooking delicious, easy-to-prepare meals for your family and friends that happen to be free from 11 key allergens.

So, without further ado, here is the recipe for my Loni’s Allergy Free version of a Hamburger with the lot which are free from wheat, gluten, corn, yeast, dairy, egg, peanuts, tree nuts, sesame seeds, tomato and seafood (all my recipes are free from all of these allergens!).

More delicious and easy-to-prepare recipes are available in my cookbook – Loni’s Allergy Free. I am currently running a Xmas special – with every cookbook purchased you will receive a FREE APRON, so grab your copy now (a great gift idea).

Place in a bowl, cover with plastic and set aside for 5-10 minutes until cool enough to handle. Peel skin off, remove the seeds and core and discard. Finely dice the flesh ready for use.
