There seems to be a real lack of good recipes for vegans or those with food allergies in France. In Australia, everyone seems to have a dietary preference. For many, food allergies are a real issue, but for many others it’s simply a preference to live a gluten free, raw or vegan lifestyle. As a result, the Australian market is swamped with recipe books for every dietary condition. I find that this isn’t the case here in France. So, in an attempt to make sure that there is a recipe that everyone will love, I’ve started working on a few vegan/ eggless recipes. This recipe is for an egg-free carrot cake. The cake itself is actually vegan but the addition of delicious rich cream cheese frosting makes it very much non-vegan. Feel free to adapt this recipe and replace the cream cheese with a dairy-free frosting.

Il semble y avoir un véritable manque de bonnes recettes pour les végétaliens ou ceux qui ont des allergies alimentaires en France. En Australie, tout le monde semble avoir une préférence alimentaire. Pour beaucoup, les allergies alimentaires sont un vrai problème, mais pour beaucoup d’autres, c’est tout simplement une préférence envers un style de vie ‘raw’, végétalien ou sans gluten. De ce fait, le marché australien est inondé de livres de recettes correspondant à chaque régime alimentaire. Je trouve que ce n’est pas le cas ici en France. Donc, afin de faire en sorte qu’il y ait une recette qui puisse plaire à chacun, j’ai commencé à travailler sur quelques recettes sans œufs et végétaliennes. La recette ci-dessous est celle d’un gâteau aux carottes sans œuf. Le gâteau lui-même est en fait végétalien, mais l’ajout d’un délicieux glaçage riche en beurre et en fromage, le rend totalement non-végétalien. N’hésitez pas à adapter cette recette et à remplacer ce glaçage par un autre sans produits laitiers.

    10% of the Australian population has a food allergy, which is a huge proportion. Normal levels for other countries is 1-2%. No one knows exactly why food allergies are so common in Australia, nor why they have been increasing in the Western world in the last couple of decades at an astonishing rate. There are some hypotheses, but I won’t bother to go into them here. Anyway, that explains why there are so many more cook books for special dietary requirements in Australia than in France.

    Be careful when you talk about ‘vegan’. You might be safer to use the expression ‘plant-based’. Vegans will tell you that veganism is not a diet, but a lifestyle. It’s not about what you eat per se, but an animal rights strategy. Vegans tend to be unimpressed by bloggers who announce they have some vegan recipes if they are not also consistently embracing the other lifestyle attitudes that go along with the philosophy.
