Collard Greens with Garlic and Lemon

Steamed or braised collard greens with garlic and a sprinkle of fresh lemon are naturally gluten-free. A relative of the cabbage and broccoli family, they are low carb and rich in fiber and many valuable nutrients, such as vitamins A, C and K, plus several of the B vitamins. They also have a variety of minerals, such as potassium, phosphorus and calcium, to name a few.

These collards can be served as a side for pork loin chops or chicken pieces for a paleo dinner, with a baked sweet potato as another side. I like to accompany them sometimes with Cajun rice or blackeyed peas to complement their texture and flavor for a vegetarian dinner. In the photo above they are shown with Shredded Barbecue Chicken.

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 Cornbread Stuffing with Herbs and Mushrooms, A Side for Turkey or a Filling for Squash

Just the right mix of herbs combined with celery, mushrooms and onion, then tossed with the cornbread and cooked a bit more. On your plate it mingles with the gravy for an ideal side dish for chicken or turkey. We sometimes try other herbs and seasonings, but this is our traditional favorite. You can also stuff your favorite…

Garbanzos, Zucchini and Tomatoes Sauteed – Seasoned or Not (Gluten-Free)

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.
