30 Minute Meals – Quick and Easy

Gluten-Free Baked Polenta with Pasta Sauce and Mozzarella Cheese

Baked polenta is an easy gluten-free recipe that works great as a side with dinner. Plus, I really enjoy it for lunch… Especially since it’s so quick & easy to prepare.

If you have ever had grits – especially Southern-style grits with butter, syrup and bacon – you might recognize a similarity to traditional Italian polenta.

They are both made from ground, dried corn. In fact, some would say they are interchangeable, although polenta is usually a coarser grind than grits and the type of corn used is “flint” corn, making a firmer texture after cooking. If you can’t find polenta where you shop, you can substitute grits in a pinch. Some stores also have cooked polenta in a tube in the dairy or meat case.

Baked polenta fits into a 30 minute meal easily, even if I want to add some of the optional toppings like sautéed onion or mushrooms.

Chicken Salad, Any Way You Like It

A good chicken salad is an easy, economical staple on the menu any time of year, and it’s easy to make gluten-free. It can be any way you like it…a simple salad, a sandwich or even a quick dinner.

Chicken salad also can easily be dressed up to make elegant tea sandwiches, hearty submarine sandwiches or tempting dinner salads. Sadly, this one didn’t last as long as I had hoped it would.

Gluten-Free Peach Salsa

I love peaches. I was born in Fredericksburg, Texas…

… Smack-dab in the middle of the Texas Hill Country’s many peach orchards!

And, I think peaches are so good that I wondered what they might taste like in a salsa.

So, I decided to whip up a batch to find out.

Easy Gluten-Free Banana Peanut Butter Muffins

These easy gluten-free banana peanut butter muffins are quick to make and have for breakfast or snacks without a lot of fuss and bother, and, to make it even better, they taste great.

The other day I baked some of these for an easy breakfast and enjoyed two of them right away. Then I unexpectedly found I had to take a family member to the doctor immediately.

That trip took a lot longer than I expected. About half-way through waiting for our turn to see a doctor, I realized I should have taken a couple of these muffins with me. They would have packed easily into my purse and they would have made a terrific snack!

Tolerant Organic Red Lentil Rotini Salad with Cauliflower, Peppers & Tomato

I discovered a new brand of rotini with good flavor and lots of nutrition.

I was interested in this new product from Tolerant when I saw that it is made solely of lentils – Non-GMO Organic Red Lentils… Nothing else.

That makes it gluten-free and also free of the top eight allergens. This low-glycemic rotini is certified gluten-free, non-GMO, organic, vegan and kosher.

Since it is made from red lentils, it has a delicate pink tint that is lovely and appetizing whether in a salad with greens and dressing or in a skillet with peppers, onion and sauce.
