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.
When the craving for buffalo wings strikes and you have no chicken wings on hand, make this amazing gluten free buffalo cornbread instead. Its cake-like texture makes it a great snack or dessert as well as a side dish with your main meal. I’m thinking of serving them with chili, chicken, pork chops, and more. No mixer needed. Enjoy! We are absolutely addicted to these! (And I’m not usually a big cornbread fan.)
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.
If you have a bunch of fresh mint on hand and want a great way to use it, this dairy-free fresh mint ice cream is the way to go. I had a lot of mint leftover from making mint juleps (recipe coming soon) and knew making this ice cream would be a treat for my husband. He didn’t even notice that it was dairy-free. It’s that good. You can also make it with dairy. Just choose those options in the ingredient list.
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.
Make this easy pickled red onions recipe either tangy or sweet or both. Adjust it as you desire. You can’t go wrong because included with the recipe is a way of fixing anything you don’t like. Serve the pickled red onions on chili (tomato-free chili cheese dogs as shown), with chicken salad or egg salad sandwiches, on salads and hot dogs, and more.
Now is a good time to boost your immune system by using organic or cold-pressed coconut oil in your cooking and baking. Learn how to tone down coconut flavor in your baking. You’ll be pleasantly surprised, as was my husband, when you taste these gluten free dairy free chocolate chip oatmeal cookies. More importantly, you’ll learn a little secret about baking with coconut oil that will dramatically improve the texture of your baked goods.
Jody, one of my blog readers, requested assistance converting her recently deceased mother’s rolls recipe, which has been in the family for ages, to gluten free. While you can use a variety of flours and starches to make this recipe, they all should turn out soft and fluffy. Enjoy! Watch the Video!
When you want to quickly make a flavorful Asian-style vegetable, reach for snow peas. This sesame snow peas recipe is not only fast to make but tastes delicious. They are perfectly paired with Chinese food such as Potstickers, Fried Rice, and Egg Rolls as well as plain chicken or pork.
Joanna Gaines, the former costar of the Fixer Upper TV show, made a similar cookie recipe last week on Good Morning America. I just had to have them because they sounded and looked so good. You will love these gluten free chocolate chip oatmeal cookies. It’s like three cookies in one. Before I ever made them, my husband said, “They’re just going to be missing raisins!” (He’s a huge raisin oatmeal cookie fan.) These cookies contain both chocolate and peanut butter chips as well as oats. They’re our new favorite cookie!
