Collard Greens with Garlic and Lemon

Steamed or braised collard greens with garlic and a sprinkle of fresh lemon are naturally gluten-free. A relative of the cabbage and broccoli family, they are low carb and rich in fiber and many valuable nutrients, such as vitamins A, C and K, plus several of the B vitamins. They also have a variety of minerals, such as potassium, phosphorus and calcium, to name a few.

These collards can be served as a side for pork loin chops or chicken pieces for a paleo dinner, with a baked sweet potato as another side. I like to accompany them sometimes with Cajun rice or blackeyed peas to complement their texture and flavor for a vegetarian dinner. In the photo above they are shown with Shredded Barbecue Chicken.

Gluten-Free Oatmeal Raisin Muffins with Honey

Anything containing oatmeal and raisins is usually among the all-time favorites in my house, and these muffins are no exception. So, I made several batches of them and experimented a little with the sweetener. These Gluten-Free Oatmeal Raisin Muffins with honey are what we like the best. In fact, a not-to-be-disclosed family member declared that these were absolutely delicious!

I like that the honey is a little better for us than the more traditional granulated cane sugar or brown sugar that is in many of my other muffin recipes.

You’ll Relish This Summer Relish Tray Made With Ernie’s Salsas

The first thing I noticed about Ernie’s Salsas, besides being gluten-free, was the high quality of the ingredients used, the short list of ingredients and the variety of flavors.

Ernie sent me five flavors to taste: Gourmet Red, Hawaiian Pineapple Heat, Chesapeake Bay Shrimp, Perfect Peach, and Black Bean and Corn….

We tasted some of each flavor plain, and then also with cucumber slices, pepper strips, celery and carrot sticks, and also with some chips.

Fudge Brownies with Almonds for an After School Treat

I love Brownies!

Especially, Fudge Brownies with Almonds… They are good for serving at a party, packing in a lunchbox or eating for a gluten-free after-school snack…or just any time a rich chocolate treat is in order.

They are dense and moist with chunks of almonds that add just the right amount of crunch.

Curry Vegetable Red Lentil Soup

A bowl of this spicy, healthy gluten-free soup made a delicious lunch! As soon as I tasted it, I wanted to post it for you. Let me tell you how I discovered this wonderful treat…

… A few weeks ago my daughter-in-law sent some to me for lunch. But my son, who delivered it, couldn’t remember all of the ingredients, only that it was gluten-free. I enjoyed it and I wanted to learn how to make it.

Of course, I could tell that it had curry seasoning in it and I could taste the smoothness of the coconut milk. The cabbage, cauliflower, carrots and onion were obvious (yum!). But, there was a unique texture and flavor in it that I just couldn’t quite place.

When I found out later that the base was sprouted red lentils, I realized that they added a creamy texture and flavor to the soup that went far beyond what the coconut milk provided.

The soup is healthy in so many ways. It’s naturally gluten-free and can be made mostly from whole foods, except for the curry powder, turmeric and coconut milk – and they’re not far from whole foods.
