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 Ann Sokolowski.
1 pound chopped turkey
1 cup gluten-free bread crumbs OR cooked rice
½ chopped up cilantro
1 small onion, chopped fine
2 cloves chopped garlic
½ cup pine nuts, toasted if possible
1 cup calvados or apple jack...or if you dont use liquor, apple cider
1 small package of frozen peas
½ small package mixed frozen veggies
salt and pepper to taste
Mix together all ingredients except peas and calvados. Form small meat balls and brown in olive oil. Do in batches and then return to pan. Add calvados and peas, cover and cook a half hour. Serve over rice. If sauce is dry during cooking, add a little water or chicken stock. It should come up half-way to meatballs.
