On a gluten free diet many of us eat a lot of rice. Gluten free risotto is a nice change. I am getting tired of the same old rice dishes and wanted to mix things up a bit. The only risotto recipes I have taste-tested were in fine Italian restaurants, but never cooked it myself. Imagine that! And I’m half Italian! Our family always ate the same asparagus recipe, boiled, and dipped in mayonnaise while eating. Traditional risotto includes parmesan cheese cooked into the rice. It makes it creamier, though it is pretty creamy alone because of the starch content of the arborio rice. However, because prosciutto is already very salty I opted on just topping the rice off with a little parmesan cheese. Continue reading “Gluten Free Asparagus Prosciutto Risotto”
Most fried rice recipes are gluten free until someone places soy sauce in it. This gluten free beef fried rice recipe calls for tamari sauce, a gluten free soy sauce. And I’ve provided a link to a brand that is labeled gluten free. Fried rice is easy on the pocketbook, as the egg is added protein and the rice stretches the meal, all allowing you to use less beef. I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as we did! Continue reading “Gluten Free Beef Fried Rice”

Yummy deliciousness! – even when made dairy-free. Enjoy! Continue reading “Gluten Free Nachos With or Without Beans”
I usually make this gluten free chicken salad recipe with apples, but did not have any, therefore, substituted the apples with strawberries. It turned out great. Strawberries are not quite sweet enough now due to the season, but in a few weeks they will be. By adding a little stevia, which I do even in my apple chicken salad recipe, it sweetens up just right. You can use this chicken salad atop a salad, in a sandwich, or on celery sticks or crackers for an appetizer. This recipe is gluten-free, sugar-free and low-cal if you use non-fat Greek yogurt instead of mayonnaise. A mixture of both is great, too! Continue reading “Gluten Free Strawberry Chicken Salad”
I have been craving an old recipe of mine that I no longer can have due to my tomato allergies, but created this one as a substitute. There a ton of variations to this recipe which is great because you’ll never tire of it. You can either keep it vegan or add meat, cheese, etc. You can use traditional shaped zucchini or round ones if you can get a hold of some. The one I used in the photo below is from my garden.Continue reading “Vegan and Gluten Free Stuffed Zucchini Recipe”
I love avocados and I thought, “Why not mix it up with chicken for an avocado chicken salad sandwich or atop a salad?” I allow myself a serving of avocado once a week, as a treat. Adding a little Greek yogurt makes this recipe even less in calories, or use mayonnaise for richness, or neither. This is a quick, easy avocado chicken salad recipe that anyone can make. And it’s great for using up leftover chicken. You’ll see the sandwich photo below which shows the dairy-free version, and the salad photo showing the dairy versionContinue reading “Gluten Free Avocado Chicken Salad”
