In 1994 I was diagnosed with celiac disease, which led me to create Celiac.com in 1995. I created this site for a single purpose: To help as many people as possible with celiac disease get diagnosed so they can begin to live happy, healthy gluten-free lives. Celiac.com was the first site on the Internet dedicated solely to celiac disease, and since then it has become an invaluable resource to people worldwide who seek information about celiac disease and the gluten-free diet.
In 1998 I created The Gluten-Free Mall, Your Special Diet Superstore! which was also another Internet first—it was the first gluten-free food site to offer a shopping cart-style interface, and the ability for people to order gluten-free products manufactured by many different companies at a single Web site.
I am also co-author of the book Cereal Killers, and founder and publisher of Journal of Gluten Sensitivity.
This recipe comes to us from “tarnalberry” in the Celiac Disease Message Board.
1 cup Lundberg Farms Wild Blend Rice (you can substitute brown rice, or your own mix of brown and wild rice, but this mix works best of the variations Ive tried so far, definitely do not do all white rice)
1/3 cup arborio rice (risotto)
3 medium carrots
3 stalks celery
1 medium onion
2/3 pound mushrooms (chanterelles are very good here, as are creminis (or portabellas), plain white wouldnt be the same)
3 tablespoons olive oil
4 cups (or more) chicken or vegetable broth
2 teaspoons Italian spices (or ½ teaspoon each basil, oregano, thyme, rosemary)
1 teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon ground sage
¼ teaspoon majoram
pinch cumin (optional)
