This lightly spiced dish is high in healthy plant protein and can be served with the roasted butternut squash and onions or/and with cauliflower rice if you prefer.

These simple gluten-free, dairy-free and egg-free cookies are quick to make and you wouldn't think they were suitable for a restrictive grain free diet since they taste so good.

Since pasta is not permitted on the Specific Carbohydrate Diet, making our favourite Italian dishes has been impossible. I experienced a brainwave while I was browsing the supermarket aisles that leeks might work instead of cannelloni.

In the week or two leading up to Bonfire Night we used to eat Parkin Pigs, which were similar to gingerbread men but in the shape of a pig. These are a traditional Yorkshire delicacy! As soon as the parkin pigs were on sale, I used to look forward to eating my Grandma's parkin. Parkin is a ginger cake which originated in the North of England, most likely Yorkshire, my neck of the woods. It's traditionally eaten on Bonfire Night, November 5th. I wanted to try and recreate this scrumptious Parkin and make it suitable for the SCD. My son had created a coffee cake which was quite similar in texture and by altering this recipe slightly, the cake became one which is extremely similar to my Grandma's ginger cake and brings back so many memories for me!
