Leckman Kitchen Recipes

So what do you get when you marry one roughage-shy lactose intolerant vegan to one sodium-restricted lactose intolerant carnivore? Although it sounds like a recipe for culinary disaster, my husband and I have proven our flexibility and creativity in the kitchen over and over in attempts to find healthy, dairy-free, sodium-light alternatives to the average diet. I'm slowly starting to collect recipes we have used, modified successfully, and that have proven their worth in our kitchen.

Some of these have been passed down through my husbands or my families, some have been culled out of books or magazines, or other websites. Most have been slightly altered to accomodate our unique dietary restrictions (although some are still left in their non-veggie/vegan friendly state, sometimes I'll include substitutions/omissions). Whenever possible, I'll try and include the nutritional information and sources.
