sharland needs help. Her daughter has PKU (Phenylketonuria)..

Her post....

I need help. My daughter was born with PKU (Phenylketonuria). This means she can't eat meat, dairy, soy, tofu, nuts or legumes. I am looking for a recipe to a good meat alternative burger. Any help would be appreciated.

Re: sharland needs help. Her daughter has PKU (Phenylketonuria)..

Hello sharland ,welcome to the forum ,  do you think you can write a list of foods that your daughter likes to eat on this thread and then between us we might be able to work out a burger that is suitable for her needs and that she might enjoy eating .

You have mentioned that she can't eat legumes , is this all types of beans and lentils or chickpeas or are there any that her diet allows her to  eat ?

Does she like spicy foods or food with herbs in it ?
Can she eat the non-dairy cheeses and does she enjoy them ?

Once we know a little more we can try to help easier but most important we need to know what she enjoys to eat

Re: sharland needs help. Her daughter has PKU (Phenylketonuria)..

Hello Sharland

I have only come across someone being born with PKU once before. I know that some "legumes"/vegetables are off limits and some aren't, depending on the person. On this particular occasion the person was allowed to eat courgettes. Courgette burgers and stuffed courgettes are a real treat to anybody...regardless of dietary constrictions. They can be adapted to meet any dietary conditions of a particular diet.

I apologise, but I only have a brief understanding of PKU from research done at the time, mainly from this site http://www.nhs.uk/Conditions/Phenylketo … tment.aspx .......I realise that every sufferer has different tolerances to what they can and can't eat, but as Mummza has said.....if we know what  your daughter CAN eat, then there are many people on this forum that can maybe come up with some super recipe's.

Hi Kye,
I hope this helps, the sausage substitutes look like they could be made into patties. But best check with the child's dietitian first. crossed

This one looks as if it could be made into patties also.

I think seeing a dietitian would be the best in that case.
