The ups, downs, and runarounds of Celiac Disease and food sensitivities

Despite gluten being the main issue, what I REALLY miss is cheese. I have not found a suitable pre-packaged replacement, as most contain soy or wreak havoc on anyone’s digestive system (AHEM Daiya-rrhea). Thank goodness for innovative bloggers, to my rescue yet again! This “moxarella” is made with a small amount of cashews, water, and a few other ingredients. And guess what? It tastes like cheese, and it melts like cheese! The only drawback is that it needs to be baked/melted, preferably as the top layer, but this is not really an issue in my book. Behold, topping a lovely pizza (crust roughly based on this recipe):

Also, three (or a bazillion) cheers for this affordable, simple, yet miracle-cranking veggie slicer/spiraller! I’ve used all of the blades with great success, but zucchini noodles still top the list of its exciting products! Served with date tamarind sauce with cauliflower and kale, with a side of baked samosas (filled with purple sweet potatoes and green lentils):

    That’s too bad to know about Daiya. I’ve been wanting to try it!

  2. It’s great if you can handle it, particularly because it is lactose AND casein free, but I think the various processed oils and pea protein get to me (and to others: http://theppk.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=18&t=7136).

  3. Yeah! I’m so glad you love my Foxy Moxy! I detest Daiya too…. Looks gorgeous on your pizza.

    I’m totally intrigued by your spiralizer!

    • Yes, I was so psyched to come across your recipe! I love how low in oil and fat it is, but high in taste! No after-taste or digestive unpleasantness! I used regular old Planter’s cashews (soaked overnight), so it didn’t need the extra salt. I also appreciate that it does not use nutritional yeast or require fermenting. I follow your blog with pleasure 🙂

      I HIGHLY recommend the spiralizer- it is very easy to use and clean. I think it’s great for raw foodies, but I generally steam or bake the slices/spirals. It doesn’t work with vegetables with heavy water content e.g. eggplant, but it produces beautiful slices, noodles, or spirals with potatoes, radishes, zucchini, yellow squash, winter squash, and probably a few others I haven’t yet tried!

      • Thanks for the info on the spiralizer! I’m doing a month of raw right now, so I’ve been looking for something. I do have a handheld julienne peeler, but I’m always wanting more gadgets to make kitchen time faster 🙂

        Smart idea on the Planter Cashews! Sometimes the health food store is out so I just pine for them, but yeah, you can buy the planter’s can anywhere 🙂

    • So you don’t have trouble with raw veggies with colitis? I read mixed things about the enzymes being depleted by cooking, but raw vegetables give me such a hard time, to the point that the only raw veggie I eat is peeled and seeded cucumber. It seems to be a texture issue for me, so I continue to eat lots of veggies, just steamed instead.

    • Awesome, thanks for the recommendation!
