Beef Stroganoff. Onion Mushroom Quiche. Banana Cream Pie. If you think that these foods don't belong on a lactose-free diet, think again. With Secrets of Lactose-Free Cooking, these delicious dishes, and many more of your favorites, can delight your taste buds -- without causing the problems associated with lactose intolerance. Author Arlene Burlant begins by clearly explaining lactose intolerance. You'll find out what causes this problem, how it differs from similar disorders, and what foods can cause symptoms. (Dairy products aren't the only culprits!) You'll then learn about the many products -- from reduced-lactose milk to nondairy cheeses to nonpasteurized yogurt -- that can help you make foods that are low in lactose but high in flavor. Following this are twelve taste-tempting chapters filled with exciting and imaginative dishes. Whether you're looking for a family-pleasing breakfast dish, like vanilla-flavored French Toast; an elegant luncheon dish, like Broccoli Souffle; a satisfying entr%ee, like Chicken Paprikash; or a too-creamy-to-be-true dessert, like Chocolate Mousse, you're sure to find a recipe that will meet your needs. Best of all, each dish is made with no- or low-lactose ingredients -- foods that taste great, but won't cause discomfort. So if you've ever thought that lactose-free meant dull, you're in for a treat. You'll find that even Chocolate Ice Cream can be part of a lactose-free diet -- once you know the secrets of lactose-free cooking. Book jacket.
