Gluten and Dairy free | Birthday’s

So my Birthday is in just over a week and I have a great challenge on my hands: How to cater for lots of people with party food that’s gluten and dairy free (and so that they don’t notice, either!)?? I’m sure I’m not the only one that has these types of issues on their hands so perhaps I can lean on the online world for some advice? Because, I think I need it.

I mean, it’s one thing to organise a normal birthday party, let alone for someone who can’t eat gluten or dairy! I’ve done some research using my two go-to bloggers. Deliciously Ella and Honestly Healthy. So far, these are the ideas that I’ve come across. Let me know your thoughts on the below, I’d love to hear your ideas and suggestions 🙂

Picky food

Roasted red pepper and paprika hummus
 Recipe from Deliciously Ella. I’ve made this before, and it was quick, easy and super tasty
Carrot sticks
Cucumber sticks
Either Avocado Cream or guacomole. The avocado cream is from Deliciously Ella as well. I love avocado, and a good dip is what every party needs.
Veggie crisps
Mains
Puy lentil, brown rice and sweet potato salad (from Honestly Healthy Living for Life (pg. 70)
Raw green curry with courgette ‘noodles’ (From HH as well, pg. 74)
Cauliflower pizza  (from DE)

Birthday cake is somewhat undecided, but perhaps this Orange and Almond chocolate cake from Honestly Healthy would be ideal!

Other than these, I’m not entirely sure…. I need to make quite a bit in advance, and enough. This could be a busy run up to my birthday.
Next on the list is to look at non-alcoholic cocktails too. Yum!
