Last Updated on

In Day 29 of the KITCHENAID Mixer Giveaway and Authors’ Gluten-Free Recipes Event, I present an amazing gluten free recipe for lamb kofta kebabs from Allergy-Free and Easy Cooking by Cybele Pascal, published by Ten Speed Press. Most of you are familiar with kebabs, but perhaps not kofta. Kofta is a Middle Eastern and Indian cooking term referring to a a spicy meatball. In this recipe, Cybele uses sumac, a reddish spice, close to the color of chili powder, and is grown throughout the world, but especially in Africa and North America. This recipe is a refreshing change from the norm of beef and chicken. Lamb is one of the safest, cleanest meats there are. Enjoy! Continue reading “Lamb Kofta Kebabs – Gluten Free”

Another wonderful gluten free vegan recipe from Kathy Smart, not just a plain butternut squash apple soup, but one seasoned with curry. Curry contains turmeric and cinnamon, which is very healthy for you, as help fight inflammation. This recipe is a healthy way of consuming curry, as Indian food is often  loaded with butter, at least the kind that I’ve consumed and made in the past. The best part about it is that it’s allergen-free! Continue reading “Curried Butternut Squash Apple Soup”

Spinach Rice

This spinach rice dish may be made with an Indian flare or a Chinese flare. Either way, it’s delicious. I chose to hide the bitter taste of spinach in this recipe. No bitterness at all! If anything it tasted a bit creamy, though, it is dairy-free. For a Chinese flare, use gluten free soy sauce. For an Indian flare, use butter and turmeric. If not egg tolerant, or vegetarian or vegan, skip the eggs. This recipe is very forgiving on amounts and ingredients. Another gluten free recipe to add to your favorites in which you can get creative. Enjoy! Continue reading “Spinach Rice”

One of Joy Bauer‘s healthy gluten free chicken recipes that just sound delicious. Because it contains tomatoes, I am not able to provide you with a photo, at this time, as I have a tomato allergy, but it sounded so delicious and healthy, I just had to share it with you all! I will have to make this using peppers and a sauce as a substitute for the tomatoes; or make it as is for my husband. Until then, I hope you find this gluten free recipe delicious and report back your findings to us all. Continue reading “Gluten Free Chicken Curry and Vegetables”

Himalayan Red Rice Recipe II

Himalayan Red Rice

Last Updated on

Recently I posted a Himalayan Red Rice Recipe with a mixture of Himalyan red rice and white rice, but it was more on the plain side, made with chicken broth (or vegetable broth) and onion. I found that adding a couple additional ingredients to my left over rice created a very flavorful, more traditional Indian side dish. Butter really brought out the flavor! Enjoy.

Himalayan Red Rice Recipe

Himalayan Red Rice and White Rice

Last Updated on

This Himalayan red rice recipe is great with added heat, such as gluten-free hot sauce or gluten free chipotle sauce.  It is almost reminds me of red beans and white rice, with a slight nutty flavor. However, I would definitely use red rice alone in soup for added protein and fiber.  Himalayan red rice is formally known as Bhutanese red rice, but because it is grown in the Himalayan Mountains most people refer to it as Himalayan red rice. It is slightly sticky after cooking and contains more bran than brown rice. It is “rich in B vitamins, iron and calcium. The reddish color of red rice is due to an antioxidant called anthocyanin, which is currently being studied in relation to the alleviation of chronic health conditions.” *  Himalayan red rice is not the same as red yeast rice which is associated with the same side effects as statin (high cholesterol) drugs.  Red yeast rice is fermented and Himalayan red rice is not.

Gluten Free Chicken Biryani (Indian Chicken with Buttery Rice)

Last Updated on

This version of chicken biryani (Indian chicken recipe), is made with ingredients that you can find at your local grocery store and is a naturally gluten free recipe. I used to work near a restaurant that had the best Indian food ever. I miss their butter chicken, but cannot find a recipe which can even come close. I must say that this recipe is not butter chicken, however, it is buttery and I like it almost as much. It takes quite a bit of time to make, but the rice can be made in advance which is very convenient, especially if you are having guests. Enjoy this treat. I sure did!

Dr. Oz recently shared a canned salmon salad recipe on his show. I do not eat salmon, but adapted his recipe to my liking and around my food allergies, used canned chicken breast instead; and added the mixture to my gluten-free bread roll. I love Indian food and the turmeric was a refreshing touch! If you like Indian food you will most likely enjoy this recipe. It contains Greek yogurt versus mayonnaise, making it a healthier choice, yet a real treat! Continue reading “Gluten Free Low Fat Chicken Salad, Indian Style”
