Roasted Potato Wedges – The Best Ever!

This recipe doesn’t contain as much cheese as potato skins yet contain so much flavor. They are also naturally gluten free. These potato wedges make great appetizers served plain or with sour cream and as a side dish for breakfast, lunch, or dinner.

Gluten Free Blooming Onion or Petals and Dipping Sauce

Gluten Free Blooming Onion

Wow! Now, this is what I’m talking about! This is much better than my first Gluten Free Bloom’in Onion Recipe. In my earlier recipe, I adapted Chef Rob’s Gluten Free Onion Rings Recipe. This time, I used the spices that I enjoy most without it tasting like a spicy taco. Even the sauce is more on the mild side. I can’t wait to make them again. Don’t miss the Variation in the “Tips” section.

Refried Black Beans Using Canned Whole Black Beans

Refried Black Beans

Using canned whole black beans, you can make the most delicious refried black beans. Black beans are very nutritious as they are high in protein. You get 8 grams of protein in just 1/2 cup of beans. Add in another protein like beef or chicken, and you’ve created a whole protein (a protein that contains all of the amino acids a body needs.) You’ll also get 9 whole grams of fiber in that 1/2 cup. The following recipe for refried black beans is so delicious, you’ll want to make a large batch and freeze some for future use.

Caramelized Red Onions with Balsamic Vinegar or Red Wine

Caramelized Red Onions with Balsamic or Red Wine

Using balsamic vinegar, you can make these delicious and sweet caramelized onions though you can use merlot (as I did – as shown) or other red wine. I call my version Merlot Caramelized Onions. It really depends on your tastes and how you will be using them. Use vinegar if you prefer a little tang. It doesn’t have to be balsamic. You can even do a little both and use red wine vinegar. Both versions are great with steak, chicken, or even mixed with vegetables. I would even add a few to top a salad.
