Are dried beans gluten-free? Until recently, I’d have instantly said “Yes!”… keep reading to find out why I was wrong.
Navy beans are one of our favorites around here… and, it’s one of my husband Al’s all-time favorites. He likes them with just about anything…in a salad, as part of a main dish or as a side with dinner. He likes them in many combinations, but most of all, he loves them in gluten-free navy bean soup.
Navy Bean Soup is an easy, gluten-free recipe to make, especially in my slow cooker.
One of the best-loved holiday treats in the U.S. is made with marshmallows and crispy rice cereal. Not in the U.S.? And they’re one of your favorites too? If so, please leave a comment below and let me know what you like most about them…
In this version I dressed them up a little for Christmas, so they’re gluten-free and also can be casein-free.
Even if the new Kellogg’s® Rice Krispies® Gluten Free cereal weren’t whole grain rice…I’d still have made this gluten-free snack just to celebrate the first time in over 12 years that I could make an old favorite. You see, I haven’t had Rice Krispies® in a long time, but now they are available in a gluten-free version.
This week in the Gluten-Free Menu Plan I’m planning meals from the simplest pasta and sauce dinner to a full table, Thanksgiving feast.
I’ve tried to keep it simple and also include healthier options when I can, like low carb veggies to replace most of my serving of pasta with that meat sauce I mentioned.
I hope you can find some dinners here that suit you during this holiday week. On the day set aside (in the U.S.) to give thanks for the abundance we have, I hope you have some time to remember what you are most thankful for. Personally, I don’t want to focus on just the food that we have to eat, although that’s certainly important, but also on the family, friends and neighbors we can share it with.
Gluten-free corned beef hash is an easy 30 minute meal. The cabbage and other vegetables add variety and nutrition and make a complete meal in a skillet.
It’s an ideal dinner recipe to cook on a busy weeknight that will have your family coming back for more.
Baked polenta is an easy gluten-free recipe that works great as a side with dinner. Plus, I really enjoy it for lunch… Especially since it’s so quick & easy to prepare.
If you have ever had grits – especially Southern-style grits with butter, syrup and bacon – you might recognize a similarity to traditional Italian polenta.
They are both made from ground, dried corn. In fact, some would say they are interchangeable, although polenta is usually a coarser grind than grits and the type of corn used is “flint” corn, making a firmer texture after cooking. If you can’t find polenta where you shop, you can substitute grits in a pinch. Some stores also have cooked polenta in a tube in the dairy or meat case.
Baked polenta fits into a 30 minute meal easily, even if I want to add some of the optional toppings like sautéed onion or mushrooms.
A good chicken salad is an easy, economical staple on the menu any time of year, and it’s easy to make gluten-free. It can be any way you like it…a simple salad, a sandwich or even a quick dinner.
Chicken salad also can easily be dressed up to make elegant tea sandwiches, hearty submarine sandwiches or tempting dinner salads. Sadly, this one didn’t last as long as I had hoped it would.
There are many easy ways to cook a pork roast.
One of the most basic is also quite easy… and a perennial favorite of mine… a pot roast!
It takes just a few minutes to get it started, then it cooks on its own for a couple of hours.
I think that a pot roast must be one of the original one-pot meals… Paleo in the extreme!
