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 Valerie Wells.
One recipe serves 6.
12 (9") skewers
1 pound boneless skinless chicken breast, cut into 1 ½" pieces
1 (12 oz.) package gluten free smoked sausage
8 oz. medium shrimp, peeled & de-veined
½ cup butter
3 Tablespoons Tabasco sauce
2 Tablespoons gluten free mustard
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon dried oregano
½ teaspoon pepper
2 tablespoons butter
1 red pepper, diced
2 ribs celery, diced
1 small carrot, diced
1 ½ cups rice
2 Tablespoons ketchup
½ teaspoon garlic powder (I used fresh minced)
¼ teaspoon dried thyme
½ teaspoon salt
1 can (14 ½ oz.) gluten free chicken broth.
1 cup water
1 bay leaf
2 Tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
If using wooden skewers, soak in water 30 minutes before using.
Thread chicken, sausage & shrimp onto skewers. Melt butter with remaining ingredients. Place skewers on grill; brush with butter mixture. Grill until cooked through, about 5 minutes turning once.
In pot melt butter over medium heat. Add red pepper, celery, onion and carrot; cook, stirring often, until softened, 3 minutes. Stir in rice, ketchup, garlic, thyme, salt. Add broth, one cup water & bay leaf. Simmer until liquid is absorbed. (White rice takes about 30 minutes. Brown rice takes about 45 minutes.) Serve w/ skewers.
