When I first started to look at food that neither contained gluten nor any dairy I felt disheartened: I did not know any “natural” recipe´s! Every dish I knew either needed some major tweaking or was just not possible to do (Well, nothing is impossible is my motto, but in this case can turn a heck of a lot more expensive….). Then it hit me like a sledgehammer! I did at least know ONE natural gluten and – dairyfree dish. And it is so simple that I almost feel embaressed…. So here it is now:

Mom’s Veggie and Sausage Soup [Gluten – and Dairyfree]


  • 4-6 potatoes
  • 2-3 carrots
  • 4-600 g sausage (The more % meat it contains the better)
  • one vegetable stock cube (Have not gotten around yet to make my own stock unfortunately)
  • salt, pepper after taste
  • (optional) Parsley, chopped on top of the soup just before serving

Here s how you do it:

  1. Peel and dice potatoes and carrots in comfortable sices. Best is if they are equal in sice, then they will be ready at the same time.
  2. Put them in a large pot (the one you use for soup). Cover with water + 1 cm. Add some salt and put a lid on.
  3. Boil the potatoes and carrots until they are  soft all the way through (Approximately 20 -30 mins)
  4. In the meantime, chop the sausage in either thin rods or even small cubes
  5. When the roots are soft, add the sausage, stock cube + as much water as you feel is necessary to make a decent soup.
  6. Heat it on middle heat until the soup starts boiling again.
  7. Add some salt and pepper after your own taste. Chop some parsley into the soup just before serving.
  8. Enjoy!

This dish is only made with 3 main-ingredients. But just as with the story of  the man who made a soup with a nail this is just the foundation. Have fun with it and add other things to it if you feel it might approve the dish!
