Baked Chicken Florentine (Gluten Free)

Baked Chicken Florentine

Are you tired of the same old way you make chicken? Try stuffing your chicken and bake it with this chicken florentine recipe. It’s so easy! – and bakes in about 30-45 minutes, depending upon the size of the chicken breasts. I love this dish, as I serve it without any starches (rice or potatoes), just a salad, and we still cannot finish an entire breast. Great for low-carb and grain-free dieters! Baked chicken florentine is now at the top of my main dishes for guest now, just because it’s so easy, yet elegant. Continue reading “Baked Chicken Florentine (Gluten Free)”

Sugar Free Gluten Free Pancakes – Almond Flax

Gluten Free Almond Flax Pancakes

On behalf of my paleo diet friends, I created this gluten free pancakes recipe which is grain free and sugar free. Of course, this doesn’t prevent anyone else from dowsing it with maple syrup. Another alternative, which is what I did, is to dust them with organic powdered sugar (evaporated cane juice). I get mine from Trader Joe’s. These are gluten free, sugar free, grain free, dairy free, corn free, and soy free. These are ideal for those looking for gluten free diabetic recipes, as well as paleo. Enjoy!

Gluten Free Grilled Halibut with Strawberry Cilantro Salsa

This wonderful grilled halibut recipe was contributed by Allison Windfahl, from her book, The Gluten Free fat Loss Plan. Halibut is wonderful for those with celiac disease, as it is an excellent source of Vitamin B-12 (in which many are deficient), as well as protein and niacin. And halibut only contains about 60 mg sodium in a 3 oz. portion. Enjoy, and thank you so very much, Allison! Continue reading “Gluten Free Grilled Halibut with Strawberry Cilantro Salsa”

Zucchini Hash Browns

Several weeks, perhaps months, ago, I created a combined zucchini and potato hash brown recipe. Since then, I’ve been wanting to try just zucchini hash browns. The opportunity presented itself, as someone gave us a giant zucchini. It must have been 2 feet long and 6 inches wide. There isn’t much to this recipe, but it sure is delicious…and much healthier than your typical hash browns. In addition, it is much lower in carbs than regular hash browns!

Gluten Free Soy Free Soy Sauce Substitute

It’s difficult enough finding a gluten free soy sauce, let alone a gluten free soy free soy sauce. One does exist, though. South River Miso makes a gluten free soy free soy sauce substitute from chickpeas, Miso Tamari, chickpea flavor. It is supposed to be so good that they limit your purchase quantity because it takes at least 3 months to make. Their products are unpasteurized, living foods, rich in enzymes and beneficial microorganisms. They start shipping this year on September 15, 2011. I still need to contact them to find out if they avoid cross-contamination, though, as I see they make a barley miso, as well. I’ll call them and update this page when I find out, hopefully today or early next week. Meanwhile, you can make your own gluten free soy free soy sauce substitute.

A Healthier Gluten Free Burger with Spinach

Gluten Free Spinach Burger

A naturally gluten free burger can be tasteless, but this one is full of flavor and is a great way to hide vegetables! When I told my husband I was going to add spinach to our burgers his eyebrows raised appearing very concerned. I smiled, and reassured him he wouldn’t taste it. He enjoys spinach raw, as in spinach salad, but definitely not cooked, though he’d eat it by mixing it with other food on his plate. I served him his burger, along with a salad which contained zucchini, and he enjoyed both, but loved the burger! It’s on the sweet side, and you can omit the chipotle or hot sauce for kids, and possibly the onion, or saute the onion before adding to the raw meat. As you can tell from the photo below, the spinach is very hard to detect. Get to hiding those veggies! Continue reading “A Healthier Gluten Free Burger with Spinach”

Gluten-Free Raspberry Vinaigrette Marinade and Sauce

Gluten Free Raspberry Vinaigrette Marinade and Sauce

Raspberry vinegar produces a darker, nicer looking meat when grilled. It helps produce those nice, dark grill marks, which every chef desires. Using a raspberry vinegar is a quick and easy trick. Anything with sugar or fructose (all fruit contains fructose) creates a darker crust on meat, whether fried or grilled. I often use balsamic vinegar, but was attracted to this raspberry vinegar while shopping when I was hungry! Gee, my tastes sure have changed. Years earlier I would have purchased junk food, like chips. Continue reading “Gluten-Free Raspberry Vinaigrette Marinade and Sauce”
