This recipe came about one evening as I was looking for something I could do with eggs and the growing seasonal abundance of vegetables in my refrigerator. I put them all together and, voilà, hybrid frittata on steroids!
At first I was considering a neat, organized frittata, which is a seasoned mixture of beaten eggs with sautéed vegetables added, cooked slowly in a skillet without stirring and then turned as a whole at the end… similar to what you might do with an omelet.
But, what I had in mind was much more than that. I wanted a skillet heaped with scrambled eggs, which are cooked differently than frittatas. I wanted it vibrantly alive because of the scrumptious, savory sautéed veggies in it. And, I had absolutely the right idea… it was delicious!
When I have fresh, juicy strawberries, I like a simple, gluten-free vanilla pudding to accompany them.
The pudding is a traditional dish made with milk, cornstarch and egg that is so easy to stir together on the stovetop.
I have liked the flavors of Chicken Paprikash since I first moved to Illinois in my early twenties. After the stress of being transplanted from Texas to Illinois, and worse yet, leaving behind the wonderful Mexican food that was everywhere to be found in Texas, the first restaurant in Illinois where we ate had a delightful dish of Chicken Paprikash on their menu.
The unfamiliar name intrigued me, and I quickly discovered the flavor was wonderful!
It wasn’t gluten-free then – I didn’t know that was a problem for me anyway — but with so many options for gluten-free pasta available now, I can easily make this for dinner anytime.
This version of Gluten-Free Chicken Paprikash may not be exactly like the original dish I enjoyed years ago, but it is flavorful and easy to make. And my husband even likes it!
It’s really hard to keep making lunches and snacks that are interesting even under the best of circumstances.
Plus, the vending machines at work or school have a siren song that almost always sounds better than a lunchbox’s boring old tune.
When the need to be gluten-free is added, lunches can seem even more challenging.
