7-Bean Soup For A GREAT Gluten Free Lunch!

7-Bean Soup

This is full-flavored, eye-appealing, nutrition in a bowl at its best! You can style it as either a 7-Bean Soup or a multi-bean culinary extravaganza… YOUR choice! And, it suits an autumn day perfectly!

The red, tan and brown colors of this soup match the fall leaves that will soon be dressing themselves out in their Autumnal-Best and falling into my yard… Much to the chagrin of my husband who well get to rake what we don’t mulch!

It’s an extra-special treat for yourself and your family, gluten-free or not, on a chilly fall day!

Gluten-Free Tomato Avocado Salad

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 Mushroom Onion Gravy on Pork Chops

Gluten-Free Gravy with Mushrooms and Onions

There is no doubt that a favorite at my house is gluten-free gravy with mushrooms and onion. A steaming mushroom gravy to spread over dinner can definitely step up the flavor to another level.

Gluten-free or not, meat, chicken or vegetables often taste so much better with the complement of a simple gravy. This is not an unhealthy, fat-laden indulgence, either.

It can be made with a surprisingly small amount of fat, whether from drippings, oil or butter. In fact, it tastes better if there isn’t much grease in it.

The gravy I made for these pictures had plenty of onion and mushrooms in it, as you can see. The meat I served it with was boneless pork loin chops, which cook quickly and, while they’re so lean that they do require a little added oil for pan-grilling, that makes it easy to prepare a meat-flavored gravy in the same pan.

Easy Gluten-Free Asparagus Salad with Beans, Topped with Parmesan

Easy Gluten-Free Asparagus Salad with Beans

I am always looking for an easy new gluten-free salad recipe. This asparagus salad appeals to me since it is easy and full of flavor, plus it is nutritious and filling!

Fresh ingredients are ideal to use when they’re available, like during the spring when asparagus is inexpensive and easy to find in produce markets. Fresh beans are good, too, when available.

At other times, a salad like this can be made with frozen asparagus and some canned or cooked dried beans, and it will still be healthy and delicious. I just made one that way yesterday, and my husband loved it!
