Carol Fenster generously shared her sorghum gluten free flour blend from her most recent cookbook, “100 Best Gluten-Free Recipes”. You can see a photo of the mix below. It truly creates a wonderful texture and taste, evidenced by using it in her “White Sandwich Yeast Bread” recipe, which will be posted after the interview with her on Carla’s Cooking tonight (see details below). I hope you enjoy this flour recipe, as sorghum is very healthy for us! Continue reading “Carol Fenster’s Sorghum Flour Blend”

Raw Banana Ice Cream

Last Updated on

There is a YouTube video on how to make raw banana ice cream with a juicer. You just remove the skin from bananas; freeze the bananas, whole; remove the filter or screen from your juicer; feed them through and voila! – You have soft serve banana ice cream.  However, what does one do if they do not have a juicer? You can even make ice cream without an ice cream maker and both without a juicer. This recipe is gluten-free, vegan, raw, refined sugar-free and sugar-free, as it is naturally sweetened. Enjoy this healthy treat! Continue reading “Raw Banana Ice Cream”

Raw Chocolate Ice Cream

Raw Chocolate Ice Cream

Last Updated on

I am trying to cut dairy out of my diet a little bit at a time but miss my rich chocolate ice cream recipe. It’s one of my husband’s favorites, too. I have created several almond milk ice cream recipes, but today I incorporated the raw almond milk recipe into this dairy-free, gluten free, raw chocolate ice cream recipe and made it richer and creamier. It is high in protein compared to regular ice cream. You can make this recipe by using almonds or a lower protein version that is nut-free. I knew I had duplicated my dairy version perfectly once I saw the same consistency before it was frozen in the ice cream maker, just like homemade pudding before it sets in the refrigerator!

Creamy Asparagus and Potato Soup

I knew I had to use up the asparagus I had in the frig. I decided to make a creamy asparagus and potato soup. Out of all my gluten free soup recipes that are creamy, I find this one to be the healthiest. When deciding on a thickener I considered using a gluten-free sour cream and Greek yogurt, but remembered what Gluten Free Chef Rob mentioned about thickening things naturally. I already had some boiled potatoes in the frig which I added in, but you can add fresh potatoes to this recipe all in one pot. I usually use potatoes in sweeter soups such as my Zucchini Mango Soup Recipe and Butternut Squash and Apple Soup, but this turned out wonderful, – not too much asparagus, just right, and nice and savory! Enjoy! Continue reading “Creamy Asparagus and Potato Soup”

Gluten Free Sauteed Napa Cabbage

Last Updated on

I have been doing very well on my gluten free diet; yet another gluten free meal! I had a Napa cabbage in my frig waiting to make another batch of gluten free potstickers, but never got around to it. I did not have another Napa cabbage recipe and thought that sauteed Napa cabbage would be a way to make a quick meal. My intention was to eat it all up as a main dish, without adding anything to it, but I was starving and because of the tamari sauce it really needed to be served over rice, which was perfect. So, I thought since I had leftover roast, already sliced, why not add some of that in, as well. It was great! You can keep this recipe vegetarian/vegan, but I am sure it would be fantastic with chicken or pork (chops or bacon), as well, or over rice or noodles, plain! I’m thinking Chinese BBQ Pork would be ideal! Enjoy! Continue reading “Gluten Free Sauteed Napa Cabbage”

Gluten Free Agave Popcorn Balls

Recent time spent with my grandchildren got me to thinking of my childhood. I remember eating pink caramel popcorn. Remember that? All that sugar just seemed wonderful, and the artificial coloring made it very attractive! Fortunately, now, most people are gearing up towards healthier choices. No more red dye no. 40 which contains petroleum and less refined sugar. I decided to try a popcorn ball recipe sweetened with agave syrup. This is a great recipe to use up your left over popcorn, too! I am sure kids will enjoy this sweet treat! Continue reading “Gluten Free Agave Popcorn Balls”

Baked French Fry Recipe

Low Fat Baked French Fries

Last Updated on

Let’s face it french fries that have been deep fried are high in calories. If you’d like a french fry lower in fat and calories just bake them. I’m all for low fat french fries! I recently purchased a Nonstick French Fry Baking Pan which allows the heat to rise from the bottom through holes in the pan, allowing browning to occur on both sides. A little olive oil spray makes them taste like regular french fries.  Continue reading “Baked French Fry Recipe”
