I love the flavor of napa cabbage. It’s such a pleasant, healthy addition to my gluten-free diet.
It has a problem, though…
…It’s so delicate that it can easily be overwhelmed if it’s combined with the wrong flavors and textures.
It’s important to know about safe foods, so I’m adding a “snapshot” list of my pantry. It is not an all-inclusive list. It’s a list of what I might have in my gluten-free kitchen on an average day. My hope is that you can use it for ideas and direction in your kitchen.
Onions add their sweet, savory flavor to many of the things I cook. They also deserve a spotlight of their own. You can usually find pearl onions year-round in the produce department (or if you want, in the freezer case). Dressed up just a little with butter and parsley, and maybe a little paprika, they’re a great side dish for many meals. You can easily use a substitute for the butter to make the onions casein-free.
Navy beans are one of our favorites here…well, especially Al’s favorites. He likes them with just about anything…in a salad, as part of a main dish or as a side in a main meal. He likes them in many combinations, but most of all, he likes them in soup.
