- Cabbage Rolls

- Consider maintaining a gluten and dairy free diet for the entire family, too. This makes meal planning a lot easier and means that you can enjoy meals as a family with less hassle.
- Buy a rice cooker. Rice cookers can be bought from 200 NOK and up online or in electronic stores. Asian food stores also stock a few models too. These are normally of higher quality but more expensive than the ones bought in electronic stores.
- Crock-pots aka slow cookers are now sold in Norway, and offer you a way to get gluten and dairy free meals on the table fast (and save LOTS of money along the way). One of my favorite food bloggers Stephanie O’Dea has a GREAT blog called A Year of Slow Cooking about the year she spent cooking in a slow cooker every single day. All of her recipes are gluten free and many have optional dairy ingredients.
|German cherries are always tasty for the gluten free kiddie crowd|
- Coconut milk is my favorite substitute for cow’s milk. It can be bought in cans in most stores in Norway and in powdered form in most Asian and African food stores in Norway. Use coconut milk as you would cow’s milk in sweet and savory dishes.
- Some lactose intolerant people find success with raw (non-pasteurized) cow’s milk, sheep milk or goat’s milk cheeses. These are more commonly found in health food and organic stores.
