A bowl of this spicy, healthy gluten-free soup made a delicious lunch! As soon as I tasted it, I wanted to post it for you. Let me tell you how I discovered this wonderful treat…
… A few weeks ago my daughter-in-law sent some to me for lunch. But my son, who delivered it, couldn’t remember all of the ingredients, only that it was gluten-free. I enjoyed it and I wanted to learn how to make it.
Of course, I could tell that it had curry seasoning in it and I could taste the smoothness of the coconut milk. The cabbage, cauliflower, carrots and onion were obvious (yum!). But, there was a unique texture and flavor in it that I just couldn’t quite place.
When I found out later that the base was sprouted red lentils, I realized that they added a creamy texture and flavor to the soup that went far beyond what the coconut milk provided.
The soup is healthy in so many ways. It’s naturally gluten-free and can be made mostly from whole foods, except for the curry powder, turmeric and coconut milk – and they’re not far from whole foods.
If you like tender, hot bites of chicken with crisp-tender vegetables, this gluten-free chicken stir-fry will make a quick and easy meal for you. You can modify it easily to satisfy your family’s tastes, even if you’re cooking for a gluten-free diet and a regular diet at the same time, simply by adding or changing the vegetables.
My family loves this meal! Personally, I like to have this gluten-free stir-fry as a low-carb meal. For the rest of the household, rice or gluten-free noodles are optional side dishes – and according to my husband, they are required. The stir-fry works well either way. And I love to serve whole foods to my family.
This rice dish is a beautiful change of pace from the usual side dishes we have! Gluten-free Sweet Black Thai Rice has rich, eye-appealing color, includes satisfying whole-grain fiber that doesn’t taste woody, and has a delicious, mild nutty flavor that is good prepared simply with water and salt, or with your favorite additions.
My hubby liked this particular combination so much that he rated it “one of the best ever!” …Even though the directions seem long, this is not a long meal to cook. Since it is that quick, I thought it would be a good summer weeknight dinner….
