Full-flavored, eye-appealing, nutrition in a bowl – Multibean Soup suits an autumn day perfectly! The red, tan and brown colors of this soup match the fall leaves in my yard right now.
I love to start a pot of soup and have it simmer away while I go about other things. Then I know we’ll have a healthy, fiber-rich, gluten-free lunch or supper later on in the day.
With its high nutrition and ease of cooking, salmon is a natural for a quick but elegant dinner, like this combination of salmon, acorn squash and sautéed vegetables.
This rice dish is a beautiful change of pace from the usual side dishes we have! Gluten-free Sweet Black Thai Rice has rich, eye-appealing color, includes satisfying whole-grain fiber that doesn’t taste woody, and has a delicious, mild nutty flavor that is good prepared simply with water and salt, or with your favorite additions.
During the growing season we enjoy the variety of fresh vegetables, especially the versatile, naturally low-carb, high-nutrient, gluten-free summer squashes and zucchini.
Of course, the garbanzos add some carbs to the dish, but they have good protein, fiber and other nutrients so are well worth it.
When green beans are abundant, fresh from local produce markets, I cook them often. Other times I use frozen green beans.
My family really likes the combination of onions and green beans. We’ve had them recently as a gluten-free side dish with a traditional dinner of meat and potatoes.
It’s just as good with chicken and rice. I’ve even enjoyed it as a side for spaghetti and meat sauce.
