This gluten free teriyaki steak can be made with or without pineapple, but the pineapple makes a very nice compliment to the sweet and salty teriyaki sauce. Because it is grilled in the same pan the steak is, it tends not to be very sweet, but just lends a hint of sweetness. Serve over rice or just with a vegetable if you are a low-carber. This recipe is very easy to make which makes it a perfect dish for guests so you can enjoy their company! Continue reading “Gluten Free Teriyaki Steak”
I needed some gluten free teriyaki sauce and there was none in the house. What’s a girl to do? I gathered some of the traditional ingredients in teriyaki sauce and added a bit of pineapple juice for some extra nutrients. The base is tamari sauce. It is wonderful that San J makes a gluten-free soy sauce, actually called a tamari sauce because it contains no gluten. Tamari is a light soy sauce. All tamari sauces are made with more soy beans than regular soy sauce. Soy sauce is made from wheat and soy beans, therefore, those on a gluten free diet use Tamari.

Easy, is all I can say! These appetizers can be made dairy-free as well as gluten-free. The filling can be changed around quite a bit with various additions and substitutions to the cream cheese, sautéed vegetables, olives, sun-dried tomatoes, sautéed onion and peppers. Just make sure all of your additions are gluten-free. Continue reading “Easy Gluten Free Appetizers: Pepperoni and More”
The holidays are almost upon us which has inspired me greatly in creating new recipes, but specifically these stuffed snow peas. Besides using these as appetizers they are a great way to get your kids to eat vegetables, too! If you use cream cheese, of course, they will not be dairy-free, but there are alternatives you can use nowadays. If you have a nut allergy you can skip the nuts and fill them just with the cream cheese filling. This stuffed snow peas appetizer is one of the best appetizers I have ever had, but of course they contain many of my favorite ingredients! All this and they’re gluten-free!
Of course this fruit salad is gluten free, but it does not take special ingredients to make this recipe. It is fast to make, yet elegant to serve, with proper garnishes. October is mango season where I live in California. Perhaps the season is different where you are. Mangos tend to be overlooked during the fall, as many of our favorite fruits go out of season. I love the fall color of mangos, as well as their flavor. I hope you, and possibly your guests, enjoy this savory fruit salad recipe. My husband is not big on fruit salad, but he really enjoyed this one (probably because of the cherries!) Have fun and enjoy! Continue reading “Savory Fruit Salad: Mango and Dried Cherry”
This gluten free stuffing recipe is great for roasting a chicken, as I used it, or for a turkey. It contains apples and optional walnuts. I always suggest trying a new stuffing recipe with a chicken prior to using it in your Thanksgiving turkey. The amount I made below was stuffed inside a 5 pound organic chicken, free of antibiotics and hormones, and the rest baked in foil aside the roasting pan. This is on the sweet side, but savory as well! Continue reading “Gluten Free Stuffing – Apple Walnut”
If you have been diagnosed with celiac disease, you would do best to eat natural foods, free of chemicals, preservatives, additives and other artificial ingredients, as some of these ingredients are sources of hidden gluten and are unhealthy for us all.
Link Between Celiac Disease and MSG
There is a theory that MSG is unsafe for celiac patients. It certainly has been proven that MSG increases the risk for autism. In addition, it has been discovered that most individuals who report having a reaction to MSG also report a sensitivity to wheat. There are many foods and ingredients that those with celiac disease should not consume. One would think that rice milk would be safe, but all brands are not gluten-free. Read the information below to find out more about unsafe foods for those with celiac individuals and more. Continue reading “Celiac: Foods to Avoid”
October is National Cookie Month! What a great excuse to make a batch, right? These gluten free cookies are scrumptious! I love gluten free shortbread cookies probably because they have more butter than the average cookie recipe, but this recipe uses less butter and replaces it with a little nut flour. Enjoy!
