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!

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!

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

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”
