If this year you’ve decided to give up something for Lent, you may be struggling already.

Whether you’re avoiding gluten, alcohol or just seeking to get a bit leaner, we’ve got you covered. Don’t let Lent keep you away from stuffing your face at London’s best food markets.

Gluten Free

Gluten free can seem like a minefield. Hoards of burger stands looking to stick some complex carbohydrates around that patty can be alluring but it doesn’t have to be this way.

Horn OK Please

When you think of Indian street food, gluten free doesn’t scream out to you at first. But Horn OK Please‘s traditional moong dal dosa could be perfect for you. It’s a traditional dish with a breakfast vibe: an Indian pancake made from fermented rice and lentils. It comes filled with masala potatoes, spicy chick peas as well as Sev, a crunchy chick pea noodles with an optional pomegranate covering. Totally filling and totally gluten free.
