This is full-flavored, eye-appealing, nutrition in a bowl at its best! You can style it as either a 7-Bean Soup or a multi-bean culinary extravaganza… YOUR choice! And, it suits an autumn day perfectly!
The red, tan and brown colors of this soup match the fall leaves that will soon be dressing themselves out in their Autumnal-Best and falling into my yard… Much to the chagrin of my husband who well get to rake what we don’t mulch!
It’s an extra-special treat for yourself and your family, gluten-free or not, on a chilly fall day!
The other day, I was facing an extremely hectic schedule. So, I really needed an easy gluten-free meal that wouldn’t take much work or attention. Also, beca…
Onions add their sweet, savory flavor to many of the things I cook. They also deserve a spotlight of their own.

Don’t tell him but these are also much healthier than many of his favorite snacks. I recently served them with some carrot and celery sticks on the side – he was well on his way to a whole day’s worth of veggies before he even got to dinner!
My son adds a warning in his meatloaf recipe to “be considerate” since cayenne pepper figures prominently in the ingredients when he makes it his favorite way.
My version of it would be considerably tamer than his regarding the pepper (and mine would be gluten-free) but the concept of seasoning combinations reminded me how much I like having made up some personalized seasoning blends for my husband and me.
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.
