In the Kitchen is where you will find all my recipes and adapted recipes, tried, tested, and eaten.
When you have as many allergies as I have, you tend to opt for a lot of at-home meals and learn to get creative in the kitchen as well as enjoy the time spent in there. In the end it’s not too bad of a situation, as it’s definitely more cost effective than eating out all the time and I have really learned to enjoy coming up with new recipes.
Today I’m coming at you with one of my recent creations. This dish is a delicious Creamy lactose-free seafood pasta is a filling and hearty pasta dish and it’s super easy to make. I have also fed this to friends of mine and the consensus is that it’s pretty damned good. Just a heads up: this recipe does include seafood. As I have previously discussed, due to dietary issues I am currently eating seafood (if you are curious why, read this). As such, some recipes on LFB will contain fish from now on, seeing as the recipes I post are things that I actually make and eat. Still, fish can always be substituted with a plant-based option if desired!
Creamy lactose-free seafood pasta
2 peppers (one red, one orange – you will use about half of each)
soy cooking cream (this is the one I use)
cooked crawfish (or vegetarian/vegan imitation)
salt and pepper to taste
001: Boil a pot of water and add in your pasta (For a single portion, I always fill a tumbler almost full of pasta and throw it into the pot – it’s probably around a little under 2 cups)
002: While the water is boiling, heat a pan on the stove with some coconut oil. Chop up your peppers (1 half of each color) into smaller pieces and sauté them in the pan. Add the cooked crawfish (I use a single portion size of packaged pre-cooked crawfish) and sauté everything together.
003: Add half of the soy cream into the pan and keep sautéing everything
004: Drain the pasta once it is al dente and add to the pan
005: Combine everything and wait until some of the sauce has thickened
006: Add some chopped chives, salt, and pepper and fold into the pasta, veggies and craw fish
007: Plate, add fresh parsley and cracked pepper and salt, and enjoy!
