Chicken Breasts Sautéed with Spinach and Parmesan

I like an easy chicken dinner that cooks the vegetables right in the skillet with the chicken.

Since the chicken in this recipe is boneless it cooks very quickly, and the flavors of chicken, aromatic garlic and onion, carrots and spinach mingle in the pan to make a flavorful sauce that even my husband likes.

Gluten Free Avocado, Black Bean and Bacon Omelet

This eye-appealing omelet is topped with bacon and filled with an avocado and black bean combination that’s full of different textures and flavors. It’s easy enough to cook for breakfast, but it would be ideal also for a lunch or even dinner. Most of the time when I cook an omelet for my family, they ask for cheese in it, but no one missed it in this one.

Not only is this nutrient- and protein-packed dish gluten-free, it’s also dairy-free.

The avocado and black bean filling is more like a salad around which the omelet is wrapped. It isn’t the kind of filling that cooks in the omelet. Neither is the bacon cooked in the omelet. I added it as a topper. However, if you want, you can add optional ingredients such as cheese or diced ham while cooking the eggs, although I didn’t add either of these this time.

Gluten-Free Chicken and Pepper Bake w/Avocado, Beans & Lime

I enjoy the flavors of chicken mixed with the peppers, onions and avocado. I like them even better in a gluten-free meal like this that is simple and easy to prepare.

The avocado and lime combine to provide a superb touch.

The plump creamy avocado adds its uniquely rich texture and full-bodied taste to the boisterous lime juice, fresh-squeezed over the chicken and pepper entree…

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.

Gluten-Free Navy Bean Soup

Are dried beans gluten-free? Until recently, I’d have instantly said “Yes!”… keep reading to find out why I was wrong.

Navy beans are one of our favorites around here… and, it’s one of my husband Al’s all-time favorites. He likes them with just about anything…in a salad, as part of a main dish or as a side with dinner. He likes them in many combinations, but most of all, he loves them in gluten-free navy bean soup.

Navy Bean Soup is an easy, gluten-free recipe to make, especially in my slow cooker.

Gluten-Free Pork Sirloin Pot Roast

There are many easy ways to cook a pork roast.

One of the most basic is also quite easy… and a perennial favorite of mine… a pot roast!

It takes just a few minutes to get it started, then it cooks on its own for a couple of hours.

I think that a pot roast must be one of the original one-pot meals… Paleo in the extreme!

Enjoy!

Mediterranean Beef Rump Roast in the Slow Cooker

I made the most delicious, gluten-free beef rump roast braised in my slow cooker the other day. It was lean and flavorful and it sliced easily so it was easy to serve. The juices were fragrant with the Mediterranean seasoning and the savory vegetables. And, to top it all off, the sandwiches that I will make from the leftovers will be wonderful… We’ve had this before… Many times!

When I did thicken the juices to make a gluten-free gravy the way my husband likes it, we really enjoyed it. I used sweet rice flour for thickening this time. But, arrowroot powder or potato starch flour would work too if you’re cooking paleo.

A little while before serving time, I stirred the thickener into some of the juices and then stirred that back into the crockpot. It made such an easy gravy! There was plenty of flavor in the juices, so without any thickening it would still be excellent if you are on a low-carb diet.
