Low-Carb, Gluten-Free Skillet Dinner Featuring Beef Strips, Broccoli and Squash

Today I’m posting about one of my husband’s favorite dishes… Gluten-free-beef strips with broccoli and squash. Now, generally, he doesn’t like gluten-free. However, this one he really enjoys. And, I suspect that you and your family will, too, because he’s an extremely hard sell as far as gluten-free is concerned… He usually dislikes it. So, if my husband likes a gluten-free recipe, most other people will probably like it, too!

And to make it even better this dish has several other things besides the delicious taste and the fact that it’s gluten-free going for it.

New England Clam Chowder (GF)

A Hot Cup of Gluten-Free New England Clam Chowder

 

This absolutely delicious New England Clam Chowder is not too rich, but it’s still a marvelously smooth, creamy and filling dish… Perfect for a quick, 30-minute lunch when you’re pressed for time.

And, to make it even better, you have control over the size and number of chunks of clams that are in the chowder. So, no more bowls of soup with no or almost no clams in them… unless, of course, you prefer it that way.

And what can I possibly say about the potatoes? You can make them EXACTLY…

Tomato Avocado Salad for a Fresh Summer Salad

This quick and easy tomato avocado salad came together quickly for lunch recently. I had been out all morning and when I came home, I was hungry for something to eat…fast! I had an idea for something with a pile of salad greens with a fresh dressing, but happily an even better idea appeared.

I found both tomatoes and an avocado that were finally ripe…it’s so hard to wait for them sometimes.

From that point on, the rest of this lunch was easy.

A fresh summer salad recipe came together almost on its own.

The vegetables themselves provided most of the flavor, so that a little olive oil and vinegar made an ideal dressing. Lemon juice would also taste good instead of vinegar, and it would be completely grain-free and paleo.

Gluten-Free Crepes

Gluten-free crepes are a favorite here in my house, but I feel the “carb rush” after eating grains, so almond flour has become one of my favorite ingredients for making them.

My husband does not care for the flavor of rice flour in baked goods, so in the past I have often cooked 2 batches of crepes – gluten-y and gluten-free – which is more complicated, of course. I was happy to find that the flavor of almond flour satisfies is good for both of us.

The liquid in this recipe can be varied to suit not just gluten-free eating but also dairy-free or paleo diets.

As you can see from the pictures, for our brunch today we topped our crepes with butter, fruit and/or syrup. I used butter and strawberry fruit topping. Al enjoyed seedless raspberry topping with butter and syrup.

A great thing about making crepes is how they can be a “pantry recipe” – when it’s past time to go shopping but we’re hungry, I can still often make a quick meal of crepes that we will enjoy. If we’d had fresh fruit today, I would have used some – strawberries or blueberries would have been a nice touch. However, the bottled versions of fruit toppings and spreads work well for crepes, and they keep in the pantry indefinitely. I choose the ones that are fruit juice-sweetened only, and Al usually wants a more traditional (over-sweetened) type. I tease him about his sweet tooth, but he does eat less sugar than he used to.

Chicken Breasts Sautéed with Spinach and Parmesan

I like an easy chicken dinner that cooks the vegetables right in the skillet with the chicken.

Since the chicken in this recipe is boneless it cooks very quickly, and the flavors of chicken, aromatic garlic and onion, carrots and spinach mingle in the pan to make a flavorful sauce that even my husband likes.
