Twice cooked pork is one of my favorite Sichuan Chinese dishes. It’s a salty, spicy, and fatty perfect food to eat while drinking beer. But the combination is also perfect for a gout attack. Beer is still off the menu, but this twice-cooked seitan is very gout friendly.
This post will show you how to convert flour into shreddable seitan. It requires no special equipment and no vital wheat gluten. Some people do not like seitan due to the flavor of vital wheat gluten. The off-flavor has something to do with the industrial process to remove the gluten.
This gout friendly/vegan recipe has tofu, cauliflower, sugar snap peas served in a spicy and tangy sauce. It’s perfect for serving over rice (assuming the hoarders have not bought all of it where you live).
These are not even close to authentic street tacos. But they are a gout friendly version of the tacos that I grew up eating. I grew up eating the tacos closer to Taco Bell than the ones I have had in Mexico.
Mongolian chicken and Mongolian beef are two dishes that I love. With the new diet, they are not on the menu. This gout friendly version is delicious and simpler than my other versions.
Sloppy Joes were one of the first things my brother and I learned how to cook. For me, sloppy Joes are comfort food. But the traditional way of making them with ground beef is not very gout friendly. To make this a gout friendly recipe, the ground beef is replaced with Textured Vegetable Protein or TVP.
Vegan / Gout Friendly recipe for stroganoff using Beyond Meat instead of ground beef.
This simple gout friendly burger can be cooked indoors or on the grill.
I love a good burger! After changing my diet to help control my gout, it is one of the things that has been really hard to do without. But ground beef from unknown cuts of the animal is very dangerous for gout suffers. So for this recipe, we will substitute portobello mushrooms. To compensate for the lack of mayo and cheese, we will load it up with smashed avocado.
This simple recipe for dal makhani using the Instant Pot is a gout friendly source of protein, fiber, and other nutrients like folic acid, iron, and magnesium. But more important than that, this recipe is delicious.
Dak galbi is a Korean spicy stir fry using chicken and lots of vegetables. This version uses seitan instead of chicken. It also uses some veggies not normally associated with Korean cooking.
While I enjoy matar paneer (peas and cheese), I have cut way back on how much cheese I consume. This is definitely helping my waistline. So in this recipe, we will replace the cheese with super firm tofu.
This gravy would be good on your biscuits or your mashed potatoes. To be honest, I would be good at just about anything. Heck, I have an old pair of work boots that could be good with this gravy on them.
Bibimbap is a great way to use up leftover banchan (Korean side dishes). Or a quick meal after making a bunch of banchan for the week. This version will use some seasoned spinach banchan (Sigeumchi-namul) in my last recipe and some that we will make for the dish. Gosari 고사리 is also really good in bibimbap.
No veggie dish is mandatory; it’s really up to you what to put. The combinations are endless. Have fun and experiment.
We will make a very simple roasted salsa Roja (red salsa) cooked in an air fryer for today’s recipe. This recipe is better than what you will find at most Americanized Mexican restaurants. The best part is you can adjust it to your taste. If you are like my Wife and think cilantro is soapweed, then leave it out.
This is an updated recipe with better pictures and more information that I have learned from making this recipe several times.
I have been eating kimchi for a long time. But usually, we buy it. Most kimchi in the Korean markets have seafood, including shellfish; as someone who suffers from gout, shellfish is off the menu.
I can and do eat soups year-round. However, when it comes to stews, I prefer them in cold weather. But that is not a law, but in hot weather, lighter food is the way to go.
These gout friendly/vegan red or kidney beans are perfect for adding to soup recipe or chili. The extras will go into the freezer.
I love Mexican salsa verde, the kind made with slightly tart tomatillos. It’s a very versatile salsa. You can throw everything in a blender raw, blend, and serve, or you can roast over an open fire. The most common method is to blister on a plancha (flat grill) or dry pan.
Red sauce is a simple but delicious, comfort food recipe. The red sauce that most of us grew up eating was made with cheap ground beef. It made for an easy, low-cost meal that could feed an army.
Yeolmu mul kimchi is a refreshing summertime dish. It’s not a spicy dish but goes great with spicy foods. To keep it gout friendly and vegan, this version is made without fish sauce.
