Welcome to the March 2015 edition of our Newsletter!

Easter is just around the corner (the supermarkets have been reminding us of that fact for months now), so in this edition we have links of where to purchase your failsafe Easter treats. The April edition will cover more Easter recipes and the link to our Easter pinterest board is below.

St Patricks day is also coming up on the 17th March. We have included a few recipes to get you in the green and celebrate all things Irish. For failsafe alternatives, pull out decorations like green table clothes, plastic plates & cups and serviettes rather than colouring your food.

Potato and Leek soup from Failsafe Foodie

This soup is such an obvious failsafe choice and one that we didn't even try until our second failsafe winter. My boy never liked soups, so I didn't even bother at first. Now he loves this one and it makes great leftovers. Since there are no amines in it, it can be kept in the freezer longer than meaty leftovers. Bonus! Last winter he took this to school for lunch in a little thermos tub with some gluten free bread to dunk in it. [read more]

Failsafe Sautéed Chokos

A recipe from Jejune's Place blog. "This was Choko sautéed western-style. I made a few ingredient changes, and it turned out quite well, I must say.
