Somewhere during the day I need to have a crisp salad. Whether it’s at lunch or a between meal snack or at dinner, a salad is a major part of my gluten-free diet. The bold flavor of raw kale goes well with the sweet and tangy flavors of carrot, tomato, onion and more, for a pick-me-up to even the most ordinary day.
These delightful rounds of gluten-free crab meat were not a dish I learned about when I was very young, but as soon as I tasted them, I wanted to make up for lost time. Whether I use almond flour or breadcrumbs to make them, these crab cakes seem more impressive than the effort they take to prepare. The whole family will like them whether they need to eat gluten-free or not.
I love to cook this colorful skillet full of some of my favorite veggies, all of which are ideal for a gluten-free diet. Even better, they’re also in season right now so you may be able to find them at your local farm market. Each is good by itself, but combining them is even better! You’ll have a powerful punch of antioxidants and vitamins if you eat this dish, especially vitamins A, B, C, E, K and folate, not to mention minerals such as potassium, phosphorus, magnesium and calcium.
This old family favorite is made from scratch, even the sauce, so you know that it’s safe for a gluten-free diet. Since the chicken is boneless and skinless, it’s easier to serve and clean up than the bone-in version.
You can use your favorite vegetables in it, but our favorites are either green beans, or peas and carrots, or chopped broccoli. You’ll have a complete meal in one dish with this gluten-free casserole. If you want to make it dairy-free, you can use the oil instead of butter or margarine, and also use a dairy-free milk, or mushroom or vegetable stock instead.
King Arthur Flour sent me a box of their new Gluten-Free Yellow Cake Mix to try. In the past I have tried a number of their other gluten-free mixes with very satisfying results, so I was looking forward to seeing how the yellow cake would turn out.
At first I couldn’t make up my mind whether to make cupcakes or a two-layer cake. The mix will make two 8” or 9” rounds layers, or 24 cupcakes. I finally decided on the cupcakes.
Making them was as easy as a mix can be….
