Gluten-Free Baked Polenta with Pasta Sauce and Mozzarella Cheese

Baked polenta is an easy gluten-free recipe that works great as a side with dinner. Plus, I really enjoy it for lunch… Especially since it’s so quick & easy to prepare.

If you have ever had grits – especially Southern-style grits with butter, syrup and bacon – you might recognize a similarity to traditional Italian polenta.

They are both made from ground, dried corn. In fact, some would say they are interchangeable, although polenta is usually a coarser grind than grits and the type of corn used is “flint” corn, making a firmer texture after cooking. If you can’t find polenta where you shop, you can substitute grits in a pinch. Some stores also have cooked polenta in a tube in the dairy or meat case.

Baked polenta fits into a 30 minute meal easily, even if I want to add some of the optional toppings like sautéed onion or mushrooms.

Mustard Dill Sauce with Roasted Sweet Potatoes

Here’s a quick-to-fix recipe that will satisfy even my hungriest snack attack.

This easy gluten-free snack or appetizer can also easily serve as a side dish for a meal, especially a sandwich or a dinner salad. The sweet flavor of the sweet potatoes contrasts well with the spicy tang of mustard and dill in the creamy sauce.

One serving of these nutrition-packed sweets gives me 4 grams of dietary fiber…

Gluten-Free Diet Menu Plan for the Week of July 14, 2013

Hot and humid are the most frequent descriptions of life around here this week. With that in mind I’m happy with a hamburger cookout, a couple of slow cooker meals, a sandwich or two, a cool salad dinner and several 30 minute skillet dinners.

With the heat comes a tendency to want to move around less, so I am even more careful than usual to serve lean meats, plenty of vegetables and fruits and main dishes that often don’t need any carbs for side dishes.

Gluten-Free Diet Menu Plan for the Week of July 7, 2013

Well, we survived another 4th of July weekend. We had a birthday party, fireworks and the usual visitors to the area that we live in. It’s hot and likely to stay so for another few days, so I’ve come up with a menu plan that is oriented towards one thing (besides being delicious and fun)…it’s easy.

There are three 30 minute meals, a slow cooker and an assortment of several fairly easy traditional dishes. I don’t like cooking when it’s so hot out and I expect that many of you feel the same way I do.

Two meals of note: Day 1 has a Paleo meal of Braised Pork Loin Chops in a somewhat traditional format. Day 4 also features a healthy Paleo 30 minute meal. I hope your family enjoys this week’s menu plan as much we do.

Gluten-Free Diet Menu Plan For the Week of June 30, 2013

Summer is living up to expectations by being hot and humid…humid on steroids here in N.E. Ohio!

Who wants to spend much time cooking in a kitchen that’s already steamy?

Not me!

I’m keeping the gluten-free menu plan easy by starting the week off with Easy Beef Cube Steaks in the Crockpot, a slow cooker meal that has a low-carb option.
