There are WAAAAY too many different allergens for me to have something good for you.  Some moms say their kids are allergic to everything but water, yanno?  There are some groups here on Cafe Mom that address the ones you're concerned about.  Hope that helps.

I realize that. It doesn't matter what type of allergy. Would like to try new recipes and if it's something I can't have (like wheat/dairy) then I'll switch up ingredients :)

This is next on my list of recipes to try.

Cheezy Broccoli Orzo




  • 16 Cups Water
  • 2 Cups Whole Wheat Orzo
  • 1 Head of Broccoli
  • 1/2 Cup Nutritional Yeast Flakes
  • 1 Tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 Tablespoon Light Vegan Butter
  • 1 1/2 Cups Plain Rice Milk
  • 2 Tablespoons Unbleached All Purpose Flour
  • 1 Tablespoon Corn Starch
  • 1 Teaspoon Paprika
  • 1 Teaspoon Onion Powder
  • 1 Teaspoon Seasoned Salt
  • 1 Teaspoon Sea Salt
  • Dash of Black Pepper
  • Pinch Ground Marjoram
  • Pinch Garlic Powder



In a large pot, bring water to a boil. Chop broccoli into bite size pieces and put into pot with water. Cook for 6 minutes and fish out with a large slotted spoon and set aside. Now pour orzo into the same pot and cook for 10 to 12 minutes.

While the orzo is cooking prepare the cheeze sauce. In a blender place; olive oil, vegan butter, rice milk, flour, corn starch, paprika, onion powder, seasoned salt, sea salt, black pepper, marjoram and garlic powder. Blend until smooth.

After the orzo has finished cooking, drain the water completely. Place pot back on the stove and turn heat down to medium to low. Pour cheeze mixture in with the orzo and cook for 3 minutes, stirring occasionally. Take off heat and let stand for 10 minutes before eating. You can add the broccoli to the orzo and mix it together or eat it separately. Personally I like putting the broccoli to the side.

 We don't have any allergies, but I have learned that you can substitute marshmallow fluff for peanut butter in muddie buddies/puppy chow.
