Mango & Avocado Salsa with Hot Smoked Salmon

Oh yes, especially with smoked fish.

Gluten free flat bread type thing

This is a staple bread in our family, as tasty and filling with a plate of salad as packed in a lunch box straight from the freezer to defrost just in time to eat.

Gluten free scone recipe

Published 6 November, 2006

I have to admit, these scones are really still only good on the first day. After that, they need a few seconds in the microwave to liven them up.

Salmon & Gluten Free Caper Salsa

Published 6 November, 2006

This gluten free caper salsa is perfect with oily fish; it cuts through the richness and the perfumed capers go really well with the salmon.

Gluten free risotto - smoked salmon and ginger

Were risottos invented for celiacs or what? Risottos are gluten free through and through (as long as your stock is gluten free of course). This one is simple and subtly flavoured.

Gluten free quinoa risotto

Published 31 October, 2006

I'm not sure if it's accurate to call this a quinoa risotto, but it's kinda like one, so what the heck.

Quinoa is a mile ahead of rice when it comes to nutritional value, and I reckon the taste and texture are pretty good too.

So here goes...

My thanks go to Nitzan R, of Rehovot Israel for his story about eating gluten free in Vietnam.

Gluten free pork congee

Published 29 October, 2006

I'd never come across a recipe like this before. Naturally gluten free, pork congee is like a wet risotto, but with asian flavours. And it's really, really more-ish. As I sit here writing this, I've eaten far too much. But I do so love feeling totally stuffed. :-)

Posh nosh for a Wednesday - Gluten Free Spaghetti with Roast Chicken, Pine Nuts and Lemon

Published 26 October, 2006

Usually we roast a chicken and don't do anything fancy to it, because we're in a rush to get in the oven so it's ready at a reasonable time. But tonight we made the effort to plan ahead and had Gluten Free Spaghetti with Roast Chicken, Pine Nuts and Lemon.

3lb free range chicken

Brainstorming gluten free food ideas

Published 25 October, 2006

Coming up with gluten free food ideas used to be a major pain for us - and since my discovery of my food allergies it has just got worse.

But we discovered that we're both happier when the ideas for gluten free food are in place ahead of time, so now we do meal planning well ahead of time.... Continue Reading

Gluten free quinoa flakes? Warning! ‘The Health Store’

Quinoa flakes are great for making quinoa porridge , a warming, filling gluten free breakfast.

But beware, not all quinoa flakes are gluten free, even if they look that way.

When I wrote the above recipe for quinoa porridge, I wasn't aware of the gluten content, but the next day I had... Continue Reading

Oooh, gingery leeks

Published 24 October, 2006

Gluten free recipes for leeks are hardly hard to come by, but this is particularly tasty. We rustled it up because my mum (also gluten free) was up at the weekend with some of the produce from her prolific patch, which included a giant leek.

Gingery leeks are really easy. Firstly, wash your... Continue Reading

Actually tasty brussel sprouts

Published 23 October, 2006

If my Mum's reading this, she'll never believe it. At the age of 35 I've finally managed to enjoy brussel spouts. Since I was old enough to know what tastes bad, Christmas dinners have been marred by my wrestling with the brussel sprout spoon, with final negotiations usually resting on 3... Continue Reading

As gluten free food ideas go, risottos are reliably yummy, filling, and great cold. Once you get the basic concept of how to make a risotto, you can get creative with the ingredients.

In short, you saute onions and garlic in oil or butter for a few minutes, add your dry risotto rice for 1... Continue Reading

I love easy gluten free recipes that yield superb results - and this is the best example I've found in a while.
