RECIPES:

Oven-Baked Gluten Free Naan

Naan is the Indian version of flatbread. There are two versions, crisp/firm and the one I prefer, soft. The soft is to-die-for and is the only version I make! Everyone who has tried my skillet version raves about it. If you have a pizza stone, that version is even better! That's all I make during the fall and winter. To avoid my kitchen from over-heating, I use the stovetop version during the summer months.

(Pizza stone version shown)

Gluten Free Quesadillas & Spicy Low Fat Dip

In my attempt to create more single-serve recipes, I recently tested out my small, inexpensive, ceramic waffle iron to make gluten-free quesadillas. They turned out incredible! They have a slight crispness to the outer shell, which you can control by cooking shorter or longer. The inside contains gooey cheese with chicken, or any other addins you prefer. Then dip some non-fat, sweet & spicy dip on top for some kick!

Gluten Free Cheese Sauce (Mornay)

A mornay sauce is made up of a basic white sauce, bechamel, with added cheese. I thought I would share this recipe with you so that you can use it to top delicious recipes such as Chicken Cordon Bleu to macaroni and cheese. You can also use it with baked fish and sauce for veggies.

Crockpot Gratin Potatoes with Cheddar Cheese

Did you know there was a difference between au Gratin and Gratin Potatoes? There is. You top au gratin potatoes breadcrumbs or grated cheese where gratin contains light browned crust of breadcrumbs or melted cheese. You may use your favorite cheese in this crockpot version gratin potatoes. You can layer or top them with your favorite gluten free bacon.

I use Applegate Natural Sunday Bacon. It's free of added nitrites or chemical preservatives but contains plenty of flavor. It's the first natural bacon that I've tried that tastes like bacon. Mmmm.

Gluten Free Pulled Pork for Kimchi

Kimchi is a Korean cabbage side dish that is usually fermented. It's similar to cole slaw, but sweeter and spicier. See my Gluten Free Kimchi Recipe. I prefer to eat kimchi fresh, not fermented. One of my favorite ways of eating kimchi is with Korean pulled pork. It's sweet. You can make it spicy by adding some dry red peppers, or not. Enjoy!

Gluten Free Beef Gyros on Gluten Free Naan

When Chobani sent me coupons for their amazing Greek yogurt, it inspired a few new recipes. To start the ball rolling, I made a Greek cucumber yogurt sauce and used it in these delicoius gluten free beef gyros. Instead of pita, I used my gluten free galric naan recipe (Indian flatbread). If you haven't tried it yet, you must! You will find the links to all of these recipe in the below gyros recipe. Enjoy!

Indian Pudding - Naturally Gluten Free

I had never heard of Indian pudding before this week. So, I did some research and came up with my own version. I found a couple versions online that sounded good, but weren't just right for my taste buds. One contained egg and other did not. Without egg, it just wouldn't taste like custard, which is what I really prefer...worth a try next Thanksgiving!
