A perennial dinner favorite in my house is Creamed Tuna. It’s good when I’m short on time and I need to go shopping, but we’re hungry right now…so my gluten-free diet also has to satisfy everyone in the family.
The foundation of this easy dinner is a medium white sauce. I learned a long time ago that a basic white sauce or cream sauce is a kitchen standby, and it’s just as useful for a gluten-free diet as it is for gluten-y cooking. It works for a lot of my favorite 30 minute meals!
Chicken strips, red tomatoes, green kale and cream-colored pasta – I like how an easy chicken dinner can have such eye appeal. Some people who won’t normally eat many veggies will happily chow down on these mixed with pasta.
This gluten-free chicken penne is quick to prepare – 30 minutes or less. I used Tinkyada penne when I made this chicken pasta recipe but any pasta you like will work.
My family absolutely loves this shepards pie recipe. It’s a classic meal in a dish which is sure to please the hungry people at your table. This Shepherds Pie is easy to make with simple ingredients. And, to make it even better, it’s Gluten-Free. Whether you call it Shepherds Pie, Shepards Pie, Shepherd’s Pie or Cottage Pie, it’s a simple meal to make. If you can brown meat in a skillet and mash potatoes, you’ll be able to make this in a snap. It takes about 45-50 minutes from start to finish. Most of the cooking is done before it goes into the oven, but the time in the oven is what gives the potato crust its crisp texture [...]
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.
Are Marshmallows Gluten-Free? … And, since July and August are obviously the “National Campfire Marshmallow Treats Months” in North America, we got talking about just how many things can be made with marshmallows. Here is a quick list that we came up with…
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.
