This easy banana bread recipe has been a favorite of ours for a long time. We like it every season of the year, and we especially like to have some for gluten-free snacks.
It tastes good alone, but it also is great with a flavored spread like apple butter or pumpkin cream. If I cut regular slices from the loaf like you see in the picture, they are so good to eat plain that we often don’t even think of adding something to them before the whole loaf is gone…especially if I leave it where my husband can see it.
Fast, easy…and economical: A good tuna salad recipe is all that and more. If you’re on a gluten-free diet, you may find that knowing how to make tuna salad expands your mealtime options more than you can imagine. So, here is one to add to your file of gluten-free recipes.
I baked this gluten-free zucchini bread with some of the squash that is so plentiful in local gardens right now. The moist and flavorful quick bread has a good texture and just enough sweetness to make a great gluten-free snack.
It tasted good alone. It also tasted good with apple butter, and also with cream cheese…also with strawberry jam, elderberry jelly, peanut butter and regular butter. The sandwiches were easy to make and kid-friendly!
Basic, gluten-free hummus bears out the old saying that the simplest things are best…a fresh vegetable, a hot bread, a crisp chip…or a basic gluten-free hummus to dip them in. Here is a quick-and-easy-to make hummus made with cannellini beans. Their mild nut-like flavor doesn’t overpower but blends smoothly with the garlic and other seasonings.
I really love split pea soup in my gluten-free diet … It’s high-fiber, has no refined sugar and is highly nutritious. And, my husband likes it even more than I do. He thinks that it tastes great and frequently comes back for seconds.
Actually, this is one of my all-time favorite gluten-free soup recipes. It takes only a minute or two to remove the foreign matter from the bag of split peas. It cooks almost on auto pilot.
It makes 6 to 8 servings with a very small time investment.
We rediscovered chard this summer. We had eaten it before, once every year or two, but I didn’t remember it tasted as good as it has this summer. We’re making up for lost time. I’ve served it every couple of weeks lately.
