Recently I was on a cruise ship with my husband and was trying to eat my typical diet that is mostly free of animal protein, mostly free of the top 10 food allergens and low histamine. This meant not eating a lot of what was offered on the ship! But fortunately, there were lots of choices in the form of fruits, vegetables, rice, potatoes and some legumes (very few legumes but at least there were some offered)!
There was always baked beans offered on the breakfast buffet, along with some rice. Dal was offered every lunch and dinner on the buffet. So, I ate a lot of baked beans and dal on our cruise! I also became known as the Vegetable Lady in the main dining room because I ate a lot of rice, baked potatoes and vegetables there, then went to the buffet for the dal. 🙂
When I got home from the cruise I decided to make my own “Baked” Beans and dal. I made my Baked Beans in the Instant Pot, so they aren’t truly baked but they are very good. You could make them on the stove or in a slow cooker too.
The dal is made on the stove. If you can’t find red lentils at your store you can buy some online here.
Here are the recipes! They are vegan and free of the top 10 food allergens. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!

2015 was an interesting year for me. I was more physically active in 2015 than in any of the previous 12 years of my Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) Illness. I was surprised and happy at this turn of events. I... Continue reading →
I love Mexican food! I was raised on it since I grew up in the Arizona and it is really one of my favorite types of food! But, Mexican food tends to have peppers in it (nightshade family) and cheese... Continue reading →
Winter = Cold Weather where I live. This means hot food to keep me warm….and when I think of hot food I think of soup! I recently made some vegetable stock in my Instant Pot. Then I used the vegetable... Continue reading →
As far as histamine is concerned, I am able to eat fresh fish, if I buy it the day it arrives at our local Whole Foods. For more information on that, read my post Histamine Intolerance and Fish. I haven’t been... Continue reading →
I’m traveling now (actually currently sitting and typing this) but I am not home and not near my SIGHI food list which can be problematic at times, especially today. I wanted to check if papayas were high in histamine, because... Continue reading →
