This is my first time participating in Menu Plan Monday (created by orgjunkie), so hopefully I’m doing this the right way.
I’ve been planning dairy-free menus for my family for two years — ever since we discovered my daughter’s dairy allergy. I’m hoping my weekly menu plans will help others with similar allergy issues!
No dairy is present in the actual recipes, but there are places it can be added for those who can have it. Also, there is a lot of pork on the menu this week — which is atypical — but we’re going with it. Enjoy!
Monday – Roasted Pork Roast (Boston Butt — on sale at Publix) with Potatoes, Turnips, and Apples
Tuesday – Penne with Butternut Squash, Sausage, and Chevre – I make this dairy-free by pureeing some squash and adding all of the other ingredients, minus the goat cheese
Wednesday – Split Pea Soup (from Deborah Madison’s Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone; vegan), Italian Bread, Salad
Thursday – Mediterranean Chicken, Salad
Friday – Burritos with canned refried beans, boxed Spanish rice, and leftover pork (if there’s any left)
Saturday – Leftovers/DIY
Sunday – Grilled burgers with Lemon Carrots and Rutabaga (a new recipe for us)
