Somewhere during the day I need to have a crisp salad. Whether it’s at lunch or a between meal snack or at dinner, a salad is a major part of my gluten-free diet. The bold flavor of raw kale goes well with the sweet and tangy flavors of carrot, tomato, onion and more, for a pick-me-up to even the most ordinary day.
These delightful rounds of gluten-free crab meat were not a dish I learned about when I was very young, but as soon as I tasted them, I wanted to make up for lost time. Whether I use almond flour or breadcrumbs to make them, these crab cakes seem more impressive than the effort they take to prepare. The whole family will like them whether they need to eat gluten-free or not.
I love to cook this colorful skillet full of some of my favorite veggies, all of which are ideal for a gluten-free diet. Even better, they’re also in season right now so you may be able to find them at your local farm market. Each is good by itself, but combining them is even better! You’ll have a powerful punch of antioxidants and vitamins if you eat this dish, especially vitamins A, B, C, E, K and folate, not to mention minerals such as potassium, phosphorus, magnesium and calcium.
If you like tender, hot bites of chicken with crisp-tender vegetables, this gluten-free chicken stir-fry will make a quick and easy meal for you. You can modify it easily to satisfy your family’s tastes, even if you’re cooking for a gluten-free diet and a regular diet at the same time, simply by adding or changing the vegetables.
Vibrant, zesty salsa adds excitement to a gluten-free main dish, side or snack. Having an easy basic recipe for it is a must in my family. Here is one of…
Roasted vegetables have a more intense flavor and a denser texture than many methods of gluten-free cooking. They are as easy to prepare as the steamed or braised method. I especially like the bit of crusty surface they develop, sort of like on a fried potato, but without the fat.
A salad with napa cabbage has a more tender texture and a milder, sweeter flavor than most types of American cabbage. And, to make it even better, its vitamins and minerals make it a healthy addition to a gluten-free diet.
