Dairy Free Sherbet – Ice Cream – Mango and Almond

Dairy Free Mango Sherbet

This recipe is dairy free. I had a nice ripe mango waiting for me, but I was in the mood something more creamy. The raw almond milk ice cream that I made with avocado came out wonderful, but raw almond milk ice cream with mango is very refreshing and so healthy, too! I wasn’t sure to call it dairy free sherbet or ice cream, but it tastes great! Next time I am definitely skipping the sweetener and adding bananas!

Gluten Free Maple Rice Pudding Recipe

Maple Sweetened Gluten Free Rice Pudding

I had quite a bit of leftover white rice and happened to see a restaurant featured on television that shared a portion of their ingredients for rice pudding except for one secret ingredient. And it is naturally gluten free. It looked as if it contained warm maple syrup; and the host of show said it tasted like french toast. I just had to try to make it. The original recipe did not use vanilla bean but I had to add some, as vanilla beans give it a wonderful flavor! I hope you enjoy this as much as I enjoyed creating, and consuming it.

Gluten Free Cranberry Coffee Cake Recipe from Namaste Mix

Gluten Free Coffee Cake

I was sent a couple of items from Namaste Foods to sample. The one I recently tried was their Biscuits, Pie Crust and More! Flour Blend which also makes dumplings, shortcake and coffee cake. The package had several recipes including an orange cranberry coffee cake recipe. Unfortunately, I am allergic to citrus and had to substitute the orange juice for applesauce and added more cinnamon (yum!) – very moist! I have included my recipe along with the recommended ingredients and instructions (see “versus…”). I recommend this mix, as it is close to Bisquick and I bet will make some very good recipes besides this one. I can’t wait to try the pie crust! The coffee cake rose beautifully, even with all of that heavy applesauce! This recipe is gluten-free, casein free, (egg-free if you use an egg substitute), and (nut free, if you skip the walnuts on top).

Gluten Free Balsamic Reduction – Balsamic Drizzle Recipe

Image: Gluten Free Balsamic Reduction - Drizzle

This balsamic glaze flavors and dresses up just about any every day dish, from meat to vegetables to potatoes and rice dishes. You can make a double batch and keep it on your kitchen counter for future uses. I do not like the idea of using sugar on a dinner dish, but when I have guests that are not on a restricted diet I make an exception by making a balsamic reduction. Perhaps you will give this balsamic drizzle a try, too. Enjoy! My guests do! Continue reading “Gluten Free Balsamic Reduction – Balsamic Drizzle Recipe”

Parmesan Beef Burgers Recipe – Gluten Free – Delicious!

Gluten-Free Beef Burgers with Balsamic

Looking for a great beef burgers recipe? I have been eating dull hamburgers with or without cheese all of my life, 51 years, and thought it was time for a change! Okay, so I haven’t been eating them for a full 51 years, but that’s close enough. I’m not Celiac, therefore, cooking with gluten for my husband is not a problem. I was making him a gluten pizza tonight as an extra birthday present and did not want to really cook a big meal for myself. I knew I wanted to add some steak sauce or something. I decided to make a mini meatloaf with more of a steak sauce taste. I wanted something filing since I wasn’t going to be having bread or hamburger bun. I decided instead of adding gluten free oats, as some meatloaf recipes contain, but to hide the oatmeal by grinding into a flour first. I added just about anything I really liked with beef. Voila! – the best beef burgers recipe I have ever eaten! I ended up topping it off with a guacamole sauce. Yum! See both recipes below. Continue reading “Parmesan Beef Burgers Recipe – Gluten Free – Delicious!”

Chicken Tostada Over Rice Recipe

A while back I had made some chicken, tostada style. My husband eats gluten and he had some tortillas, but I was out my homemade gluten free tortillas. I happened to have some left over rice in the frig and voila! – an easy gluten free dinner recipe. I wasn’t happy with the photo and never posted it, but thought it is best to share and you can make your dish look more attractive. I like to make this recipe nice and saucy, adding much more chicken broth than a regular tostada. You make your own broth when cooking the chicken, therefore, you save money, too!

Stuffed Gluten Free Potato Pancakes with a Variety of Optinal Fillings

Potato Pancakes

I have been planning to make gluten free potato pancakes for some time, now, and finally got around to making them. Gee, it’s been a decade or more since I have had them. Ahhh! – what a delight! I make them with fresh left-over potato pancakes, not instant potatoes. This recipe is gluten free and without any type of flour. I show the how-to by text and photo display.  This recipe covers making homemade mashed potatoes and potato pancakes, plain, and with a variety of fillings. Either way they are scrumptious!

Fresh Basil Leaf Appetizers with a Kick

Image: Raw Basil Appetizers

With only three ingredients, this gluten free appetizer recipe is so easy to make, yet your guests will think you slaved in the kitchen all day. Like most green leafy vegetables, fresh basil is loaded with Vitamin K. The small and medium sized leaves make for a nice tender appetizer. Just remember to not pick the leaves of the plants that are mid flowering, as the leaves will be bitter. The plants that are flowering should be topped off. The flower makes a nice centerpiece on the serving dish. Continue reading “Fresh Basil Leaf Appetizers with a Kick”

Vegan Basil Rice Pilaf or Basil Fried Rice

Image: Gluten Free Basil Fried Rice

It was time to harvest some of my fresh basil. I already had made basil appetizers, but I needed more uses for basil. I had about a cup of left-over rice and thought, “A rice pilaf recipe!” I have made quite a few rice pilaf recipes which some I liked and others I really didn’t. This one tasted amazing! It is also very easy and fast to make. The one thing I did different this time is to not use a chicken or beef broth, which makes this a vegan rice pilaf recipe. Instead, I added additional extra virgin olive oil. You can make a meal of it by adding egg for protein, if you are not on a vegan diet. You will see photos of both versions below. This is a must try! Continue reading “Vegan Basil Rice Pilaf or Basil Fried Rice”
