    Low sodium dinner/lactose free too

    Fri Jul 26, 2013 12:30 am Groupie
    Well my DH is very lactose intolerant. we can sub in a lot of stuff for dairy items so no real problems there (except cheese is totally different, soy just doesn't cut it). But I need to work within the DASH diet, low sodium. I'm doing ok during the day but finding dinner time to be harder because of all the things I'm used to using. I've already stopped adding salt, I try to be very limited in things like soy sauce/bbq sauce etc. But I need some help for some ideas of what to cook that is simple, tasty and can be low sodium

    There are some things you will start doing routinely in order to reduce sodium. Start making your own broths - freeze them in one and two cup portions. Use frozen or fresh instead of canned veggies - if you must use canned, rinse before using - that gets rid of quite a bit of sodium. There are some no added sodium canned veggies, but be careful of anything labeled low-sodium - a lot of that is still pretty high.

    These are some suggestions - I have not made all of them, but they sound good to me.

    Thai Chicken Meatball Curry (Slow Cooker)
    Peruvian-Style Corn, Pepper and Chicken Soup
    Meatball Tagine With Herbs and Lemon
    Julienne of Veal/Poultry/Pork (Microwave)
    Moroccan-Style Lamb
    Cooked Chickpeas or Garbanzos (Slow-Cooker) - you can use this method for any beans - taste much better and so much less sodium
    Pasta with Mushroom Garlic Sauce
    Salmon-Rice Pie
    Tibetan Potato Curry

    I have more, but need to get to work. Are you looking mainly for main dishes, or also for sides or something else?

    Thanks for those. I'm mainly looking for mains, I can always put sides together. The only tinned veggies I use are beans and tomatoes, I'm looking for no sodium versions of those if at all possible. I am also looking for a low/no sodium beef broth, I already make my own turkey broth and have low sodium chicken broth, but I will be making my own of that too.

    Hi , your friendly Special Diets Form Host here icon_smile.gif

    I too had to go on a low sodium diet, I stopped using salt in cooking and used more salt free spices. Have you ever looked at any Vegan recipes ? My friend has to follow a LS diet and she has to go lactose free.

    Just trying to help you narrow it down without being bombarded by too many recipes to look through icon_smile.gif
