There is a brand new cookbook for those living with food allergies. Amanda Orlando has built her reputation as a recipe creator by sharing her personal experiences navigating cooking, school and dating with allergies via social media and her blog Everyday Allergen Free.
Her new book, Everyone’s Welcome: The Art of Living and Eating Allergen Free, has a colour-coded allergen-free key and an extensive substitution glossary.

Grilled Blade Steak with Chopped Tomatoes, Herbs, and Green Onions
-2 cups roughly chopped cherry or cocktail tomatoes
-10 large leaves fresh basil, julienned (approx)
-5 green onions, finely chopped
-2 tbsp chopped dill
-1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
-1 tbsp avocado or olive oil + additional olive oil for brushing
-Salt to taste
-1 lb blade steak
-1 garlic clove
Toss the tomatoes, basil, green onions, dill, vinegar, oil, and salt. Set aside to marinate while you prepare the meat.
Use a charcoal grill for the best flavour! Rub the steak all over with a garlic clove cut in half. Brush with oil and salt to taste, and sear on a hot grill for a few minutes on each side. If you don’t have a grill, you can use a frying pan, but beware: It can be messy. Let the meat rest for 5 minutes before slicing into strips. Serve warm over top of the tomato salad.
