Low salt, kidney-friendly recipes you can enjoy every day!
At Kidney Care UK, we receive more questions about how to eat well to stay well with chronic kidney disease (CKD) than almost any other topic.
If you are looking for a kidney-friendly way to eat a little healthier but still enjoy delicious, colourful, easy-to-prepare food then you’ve come to the right place. Here in the Kidney Kitchen, we have put together a collection of recipes you can enjoy eating every day as part of a healthy, balanced diet with the added reassurance that we find inventive ways to flavour each dish avoiding the need to add any salt!
We know how important it is for our recipes to fit in with the dietary advice you have been given by your renal dietitian. So, every one of our Kidney Kitchen recipes is very carefully analysed and then approved by the British Dietetic Association Renal Nutrition Specialist Group (RNG).
Manage your diet the delicious way
We have recipes suitable for every stage of kidney disease and for all seasons and occasions.
Each Kidney Kitchen recipe comes with its own comprehensive set of ‘Food Facts’ to help you manage your diet.
If you are also living with diabetes, the per portion carbohydrate value is also provided.
Many of recipes include the option to adapt one or two ingredients to make the dish vegetarian, vegan, or gluten free.
We have also included hints and tips on how to make the recipes even healthier, how to reduce the cost with cheaper options and how to safely store and use up any leftovers.
Your step-by-step guide to kidney friendly meals
Here in the Kidney Kitchen, we will show you, in easy-to-follow steps, how to prepare and cook delicious meals at home, even if you are new to cooking!
Choose from pea and mint risotto, pork medallions with apples and mustard or homemade fish and chips with mushy peas. Or why not be inspired by our guest chefs to try Caribbean oven baked fish on a bed of sautéed veg, Tandoori chicken or Dal makhani?
We can also offer you tasty and comforting choices like macaroni cheese, red lentil Bolognese and even pizza.
Look through our everyday and low salt collection and plan your next dinner now!
