Easy Danish Christmas Eve Rice Porridge (Risengrød) Recipe

For Christmas Eve dinner, families in Denmark start the meal by giving everyone at the table a small bowl of warm porridge topped with a mixture of cinnamon and sugar and a pat of butter on top called Risengrød (pronounced risen-groo with a hint of a d sound at the end.)  One lucky person at the table will find a whole almond in the bottom of their empty bowl and will win the almond gift – usually candy, marzipan, or other small treat.   Save this recipe to your Pinterest Boards for later!

My Lunch is Boring, Can You Help?

I work from home. Most of my lunches are either leftovers or sandwiches. It saves serious cashola on the lunch front and it is healthier than fast food.

When we don’t have leftovers on hand, I take the easy way out and make a sandwich for lunch.

With my new lactose free diet, lunch is getting boring.

Especially sandwiches, I can’t put cheese on my sandwiches every day like I used to. I got a nasty surprise in more ways than one (ahem) when I found lactose listed in the ingredients of my turkey lunchmeat yesterday. Aw, man! I have to give that up too?!


I know I could buy premade dairy free cheese and such. In fact, out of curiosity I bought a box of dairy free macaroni and cheese. However, since I try to cook from scratch as much as possible, I don’t want to start relying on a lot of processed dairy free food.

I guess I’m going to have to do some sort of once a week or once a month cooking of dairy free lunch options, so I can have a quick and easy lunch during the week.

The problem is I’m stuck for lunch ideas. Can you help?

What are your favorite dairy free lunch ideas?
