During the holidays, this gluten free artichoke dip is extremely popular. However, it is perfect for any special occasion. The classic recipe usually calls for sour cream or cream cheese. Instead, I used a bechamel sauce (flour and butter) with onion instead. It makes for a very flavorful dip/sauce. I even added some cheese, cooked bacon, and omitted the traditional spinach. What veggies and/or meat will you use? Serve as a dip, over pasta as a sauce, or thin as desired for soup. Continue reading “Gluten Free Artichoke Dip, Sauce, or Soup + Video”

A Mornay sauce is made up of a basic white sauce, bechamel, with added cheese.

Tzatziki sauce is a Greek cucumber sauce served with meat or used as a dip. Tzatziki is primarily made of strained yogurt, in this case, Chobani Greek Non-Fat Yogurt. It’s gluten-free! They sent me some coupons for a few free yogurts so that I can create a tailgating recipe for them. Though this sauce is Greek, you can use it with other cultural foods such as saucy Indian dishes, as a dip with naan (Indian flatbread), on enchiladas, and as a dip with veggies as a snack. For authentic Greek dishes use as a sauce for gyros, or as a dressing for cucumber salad or other Greek salads. Gyros are perfect for tailgating.

This is a kid-friendly, pumpkin sauce. It may appeal to them because it looks similar to macaroni and cheese. However, when they realize that it is not, they’ll hit the sweetness of the pumpkin and be just as happy. For a more savory, adult version, see the Tips section. Both are delicious as the roasting process creates a caramelized flavor.

I’ve been a bit nostalgic lately after seeing Rain: A Tribute to the Beatles. I’ve been playing old songs in my head ever since. Remember Simon & Garfunkel’s hit song, “Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme”? Well, these wonderful seasonings can make your slow cooker rump roast a hit, as well. And it can easily be made gluten free. Continue reading “Gluten Free Slow Cooker Rump Roast”
This gluten free cheese dip recipe is different than the typical cheese sauce you use for potatoes or broccoli. (That recipe, you can find here.) This new recipe is for dipping. I’m working on a new soft gluten free breadsticks recipe for my cookbook and decided to make a cheese sauce with which to test them out.
Months ago I ordered some sodium citrate which is the key to making easy cheese sauce without being concerned about it getting clumpy. After watching the member of The Chew (food TV show) make cheese sauce using sodium citrate, it served as a good reminder.
I tried their recipe; however, it was way too salty for my tastes. I’ve developed my own recipe that I think you’ll enjoy. Be sure to view the Tips section, as well.
Cheese dip is a perfect recipe for March Madness or other sports parties. This goes perfectly with my Soft Twisted Gluten-Free Breadsticks Recipe. (You don’t have to twist them.)
During a visit at PF Chang’s, our waitress stated that most of the entrees are over 1,000 calories. It was hard for me to imagine, but after learning how to stir-fry the authentic way, I now understand. If you want amazing flavor in your stir-fry meat, use lots of oil. I have provided an authentic recipe below, but feel free to use less oil to reduce calories. Continue reading “Gluten Free Beef Stir Fry with Broccoli (Lower-Fat Option)”
Sweet chili sauce is a Thai favorite. You can purchase this sauce in bottles. One brand that is gluten free is Thai Kitchen Sweet Chili Sauce. If you’re allergic to tapioca, choose another gluten free brand or make this recipe. It’s easy to make it at home, though; and can be stored for a very long time. (Though it begins to loose its heat after a month or so.) While ginger is not a common ingredient in sweet chili sauce, I provide it as an option in my recipe. Lately, I use fresh ginger in almost all of my Asian dishes. Use this sauce in dips, dipping sauces, and my favorite, Asian Chicken Lettuce Wraps/Cups. I think I’ll start using this as my go-to dip for my Gluten Free Potsticker Recipe. Since it contains no oil, it is low in fat and calories (not carbs). For added calories, use a little salad oil or my new Gluten Free Chili Oil Recipe. Continue reading “Mild Gluten Free Sweet Chili Sauce Recipe”
