A pork roast hot from the oven seems like a dinner for company, but if the roast is a boneless pork loin recipe with Italian seasoning, it’s easy enough to make any day of the week special.
By adding some vegetables to the roasting pan, almost the whole meal can be ready at once. And it’s such an easy gluten-free dinner!
This week I used a pork roast that had been tied by the butcher, as you see in the pictures. It is just two smaller pieces of boneless pork loin tied together to make one thicker roast.
After roasting the strings are easily cut so they can be removed before slicing. It doesn’t have to be a tied roast, though — often I use a single piece of pork loin for this recipe.
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.
… and, we tell visitors who ask that question that they need to talk to the marshmallow manufacturer to find out whether their favorite brand is, in fact, gluten free.
That, of course, is a less than satisfactory answer for many people even though it is the truth.
So, what Al and I decided to do was explain how YOU can become the manufacturer by making your own marshmallows with a fairly easy marshmallow recipe that I found on the internet. That way, if you have a gluten reaction because of the marshmallows, you can fix the problem yourself.
Breakfast is an important meal for me, but I don’t like to spend much time preparing it. That’s why when I find an easy healthy breakfast, I really like it.
This gluten-free recipe is one of the recent healthy breakfast ideas I have found that is also dairy-free, nut-free and paleo.
”Power greens” might be what you’d call a combination of several of those leafy antioxidant-, fiber- and vitamin-rich “powerhouse veggies” like kale, spinach, chard, beet greens and the like.
A combination of them makes a wonderful salad, and they add a variety of textures and flavor to a stir-fry. They also “wilt” deliciously to be folded into an omelet…so in this recipe they become part of a “power greens omelet.”
