Honey Mustard Yogurt Grilled Chicken Breasts

Grilled Gluten Free Chicken Marinated in a Honey Mustard Yogurt Sauce

My husband is the griller in our family, and I am the one that creates the marinade, this time for a gluten free chicken recipe. However, I have been doing more and more grilling myself, lately. While watching my favorite cooking shows, I have learned that all of the judges look for not only taste, but grill marks! I offer an easy way to make additional, attractive grill marks below, along with a wonderful honey mustard yogurt marinade. Continue reading “Honey Mustard Yogurt Grilled Chicken Breasts”

Gluten-Free Raspberry Vinaigrette Marinade and Sauce

Gluten Free Raspberry Vinaigrette Marinade and Sauce

Raspberry vinegar produces a darker, nicer looking meat when grilled. It helps produce those nice, dark grill marks, which every chef desires. Using a raspberry vinegar is a quick and easy trick. Anything with sugar or fructose (all fruit contains fructose) creates a darker crust on meat, whether fried or grilled. I often use balsamic vinegar, but was attracted to this raspberry vinegar while shopping when I was hungry! Gee, my tastes sure have changed. Years earlier I would have purchased junk food, like chips. Continue reading “Gluten-Free Raspberry Vinaigrette Marinade and Sauce”

Gluten Free Chocolate Mochi Ice Cream

Mochi Ice Cream

Mochi is a naturally gluten-free Japanese dessert, served during Japanese New Year and year round, usually in the form of a very starch rice cake. However, that same starchy rice dough is used to wrap frozen balls of ice cream. Mochi ice cream is a unique dessert that everyone should, at least, try once! Kids would love to make them! The little ones can help. You can add food coloring to the dough, and flavored extracts, as well. I like to use natural food coloring or cocoa powder. It can be made with a regular or dairy-free ice cream, sherbet or frozen yogurt. They remind me of bon-bons! Have fun with this one! Continue reading “Gluten Free Chocolate Mochi Ice Cream”

Gluten Free Chicken Shirataki Noodle Salad in Lettuce Cups

Gluten-Free Asian Chicken Noodle Lettuce Cups

If you’re looking for a light, quick, yet elegant meal, look no further! Shiratiki noodles contain very little carbs, therefore, this is great for a gluten-free low-carb diet, and those with diabetes. I needed a meal in 30 minutes or less, therefore, I did not marinate the chicken, but should I have had time, I definitely would have, though calories are saved by not doing so. I’ve added how to marinate the chicken at bottom of this page. You can add vegetables to this recipe such as green bell pepper or parboiled carrots, etc., and saute them along with the chicken. This is a gluten free recipe that I would serve anyone – gluten-free dieter or not! This is my favorite out of all of my shirataki noodle recipes. The other is used in a soup. Enjoy!

In my book, The Gluten-Free Good Health Cookbook, I talk about the importance of eating seeds to neutralize inflammation and strengthen the immune system. They are nutritional powerhouses packed with fiber, vitamins, minerals, protein and healthy oils. But many of us do not eat seeds on a daily basis, unless it is on a gluten-free bagel. Here are 5 of my favorites:

Chia Seeds originated in South America and was a staple in the diets of Ancient Mayans and Aztecs. The seeds are high in dietary fiber, omega-3 fatty acids and antioxidants. They have a mild nutty flavor and can be eaten raw or used in cooking and baking. Continue reading “Strengthen Your Immune Systems with Seeds”

Gluten Free Empanadas

Empanadas are a popular pastry found in the Caribbean, the Philippines, Latin America, Portugal, and Spain. The fillings are typically gluten-free. They are filled with various ingredients, whether sweet or savory, depending upon which part of the world they are made. They tend to be on the dry side, therefore, I used a rich creamy, flaky dough in my gluten free empanadas. Adding a juicy filling is advised, however, it will most likely leak out of the pastry dough and burn while baking. Cheese is a common ingredient in savory empanadas to avoid this dryness, and prevent leaking. You can add ground meat: chicken, beef with cheese, or plain cheese, along with sauteed vegetables and spices. If you find them dry you can make a dip, as well -an avocado dip, salsa, sour cream, etc. This gluten-free recipe is made on the Argentina flavor side, yet a little different. What type of filling will you make? Check out the different types of empanada in different parts of the world and choose your favorite or experiment! You’ll enjoy making gluten-free empanadas because you can be so creative!

Gluten Free Beef Stroganoff Dairy-Free Option)

Beef Stroganoff is gluten-free, naturally; however, you’ll need to prepare some gluten-free pasta, or eve rice. I remember the first time I cooked this dish. It was the summer between freshman and sophomore year of high school. It was my parent’s anniversary and the first time my mother never came in the kitchen once to watch over me! I was in heaven! They were too when once they tasted this creamy beef dish. Continue reading “Gluten Free Beef Stroganoff Dairy-Free Option)”

Sugar Free Dairy Free Gluten Free Doughnuts – Baked

I haven’t had a doughnut (donut) since I started my gluten-free diet. I didn’t really miss them, but enjoy the challenge of gluten-free baking. These gluten free doughnuts are baked, making them healthier than the standard recipes, as they are usually deep fried. In addition, some whole grain flours were used to provide additional health benefits, as well as agave and molasses. They taste much like the real thing! I think you’ll be very pleased. You can play around with this recipe substituting 1/4 cup of your favorite flour for one of the others. Add in your favorite baking seasonings or extracts, too. Experiment and have fun!
