Just because you have gout does not indicate that you have to neglect your taste buds. A diet for people with gout does have to undergo some changes, and in many cases the changes are often drastic and overwhelming. However, there are several recipes that will tickle your taste buds.

When you are first diagnosed with gout, more than likely the internet is going to become your new best friend. You will be searching for home remedies, pain relief and everything in between. The thing you should be looking for is foods that you can eat.

The diet for people with gout is going to be very different from what you are accustomed to. For example, you will be limited on the foods you can eat. Basically your meal planning methods are going to change to meet the needs of warding off any future attacks of gout.

Here are a few recipes to get you headed in the right direction with your gout:

For a delicious meal that you would never know was good for you, try noodles in a parmesan cheese sauce. This is literally one of those foods that you will fall in love with.

You will need:

1 lb. pasta (thin noodles)
4 tbsp. chopped coriander
1c parmesan cheese (grated)
6 tbsp. olive oil
2 cloves of garlic (crushed or finely chopped)
½ tsp pepper
¾ tsp salt

Boil the noodles according to the directions on the package. After draining the pasta put it into a serving bowl. Mix all of the remaining ingredients and thoroughly combine. Serve this meal while still hot and enjoy. This recipe is for 4 servings.

Garlic and Potato (appetizer)

4 radishes (medium)
2 c mashed potatoes
8 black olives (sliced thin and pitted)
8 cloves garlic (crushed)
½ c plain yogurt (low fat)
6 tbsp olive oil
¾ tsp black pepper
1 tsp. salt

Combine garlic, potatoes, salt, yogurt, olive oil, pepper, and salt. Put mixture on a platter and decorate with radishes and olives. Serve chilled.

Cheddar Cheese Pie

1½ to 2 pounds fresh made or frozen dough, thawed
l/8 tsp. cayenne
4 cups grated cheddar cheese
1 tsp. pepper
4 Tbsp. olive oil
2 large onions, finely chopped
1½ tsp. salt
2 Tbsp. finely chopped fresh coriander leaves

Make the dough for the pies. Set it aside. To make the filling you will need to mix all of the ingredients that are left and leave this to the side.

Next, you will need to make 20 balls of dough that are equal in size. Place the dough balls on a flour dusted cookie sheet. Cover the dough balls with a damp cloth and allow to sit in a warm place for about half an hour. Roll the balls into 6 inch circles.

The filling needs to be divided into 20 equal parts. Place the filling (each 1/20) into the dough ball. Fold the ball over the top of the filling to form a pizza slice shape. Be sure to pinch the edges of the crust closed.

The filling needs to be placed in the pies ASAP, otherwise the filling can begin to change consistency into a more watery filling.

Put the pies onto a grease cookie sheet and place into a preheated oven at 400F for 20 minutes. When the pies turn a light golden brown color they are done. You should lightly brush the tops of the pies with olive oil.

A diet for people with gout might prove to be a bit challenging at times, but if you are able to be creative you can find and make recipes that are fitting to you and your taste buds.
