Need Some Dairy Free Pasta Or Rice Sauce Ideas Please

14 posts in this topic

Hi Everyone,

Let me start off by saying, as of right now I am a terrible cook and the simpler the recipe the better!

I have been trying to home cook more instead of eating gluten free microwave meals.

My favorite thing to make is a big pot of either gluten free noodles or rice, with either turkey, chicken or beef added, then some veggies thrown in it. I like to do this in a big batch and freeze up my own microwave meals.

I'm just wondering if anyone has any ideas for a dairy free sauce to toss in there? I have been using gluten free broths, with a little Mrs. Dash and salt. It's pretty boring, but since my stomach is sensitive I don't mind that, but would like other options too. Not to make this too difficult, but in addition to dairy, I can't eat tomato, garlic or onion right now. Any ideas for sauces for flavoring that I could add would be appreciated.

Thanks!

Carrot and ginger puree?

 

Add fresh herbs like basil or cilantro to broth when you use it.

Can you have leeks? Chives? If so, I would add one of those. Get some dried mushrooms and powder them in a Magic Bullet. Failing that, chop as finely as possible. Add to you broth to thicken and add flavor.

Thank you! These are great ideas and things I never would have thought of. It sounds like using broths as a base and adding interesting things to it can change the flavor quite a lot. I will be trying these suggestions soon.

Its not really a sauce but I add different things to rice.  Things I use that it sounds like you can have  - pineapple, teryaki, small chopped up veggies, corn, peas, fresh basil, dried Ital seasoning, fresh or canned jalapenos or other peppers, oven roasted peppers (spicy or bell), jarred roasted red peppers, tiny chopped up spinach, etc.    Olive oil drizzled on rice when fully cooked is nice.  You can get flavored olive oils.  I also get Lundberg rice mixes that are more than just regular rice.  They have a nice nutty flavor that is different.  Some people make rice sweet and add things like walnuts and raisins.

If you want something more like a cream sauce, you can actually make a decent alfredo with coconut milk (with lots of garlic and some nutritional yeast). It does take more attention than throwing it in the pot, though.

 

What about curry? You can make a big pot of biriyani, just cook up the veggies and curry and stuff, then add in pre-cooked basmati rice at the end and let it all simmer together. Lots of cinnamon and garam masala and curry powder.

 

Also, you might want to try this question in the cooking thread and see what pops up there.

I can't wait to try all of these ideas and I am so glad I asked.

On top of being a bad cook, I am not at all a creative when it comes to cooking and never would have thought of any of these ideas. I'm hoping as my cooking skills improve, I will enjoy cooking more too. I think I need to spend more time browsing the cooking/food related topics in this forum. There are so many good ideas and recipes!

I love to use olive oil as  a base for cooking! Olive oil with some fresh/dried herbs and a little salt. If you want extra taste add butter. Yum! Also, another idea is to go to an International store or Farmers Market (or just down that aisle in your grocery store). You may find some items that fit your diet that you would have never considered or may always wanted to try. The last thing I suggest is using salad dressings for sauce. I do it all the time. Two ways you can do this. 1) You can marinate your meat in the sauce for 2-3 days then cook it and use the "juice" for the pasta sauce. Or you can cook the pasta then after you drain the pasta add the dressing with a touch or salt. I hope these ideas help! I am not a big fan of tomato sauce so I learn to be creative along time ago. Another thing that changes the meal is when you add veggies with the chicken and olive oil/"Sauce" and cook then let it sit for like a day and reheat. Its so good because everything marinated together. I use frozen veggies mostly and the mixed bags are a good thing too. The Pasta company for gluten-free I tried Ronzini and it was fabulous! Let me know if this suffice. Ciao!

You have to be VERY careful with used marinade. They SAY if you boil it for at least ten minutes it'll kill any bacteria left in it from the raw meat, but I would just toss it out. If you make enough marinade to put some in a jar and use the rest to soak your meat, the stuff in the jar won't have any bacteria from the raw meat and it will still taste the same. Better to be safe than sorry, IMO.

I agree with this.  Just reserve some marinade before putting the meat in it and put it in a cup in the fridge.  Even if you heat it enough to kill bacteria, there will still be endotoxins that make you sick if there was a plethora of bacteria in it in the first place.  Also putting too much marinade on the meat is a waste of marinade.  Heat up the reserved non-meat-juice marinade and add in some corn starch to thicken it.  NomNomNom.

:o  I love love love mushrooms, need to try this!

Yes they are right. The point however was to use the salad dressing or marinades for the pasta/meat.

    • What Are Your Brands & Flavors Of Gluten Free Ice Cream ?
      I don't worry about the same facility, but I check if it is on the same lines. I think it is usually a good idea to find out if things are made on shared lines. And if they are made on the same line as gluten-containing products how good is the cleaning in between? Chocolate is a good example of this. For example, I contacted a company whose chocolate I used to eat before being diagnosed and they outright told me they are not good about cleaning on shared lines and it is not safe for allergies or celiac. I have had this response from other companies as well (especially when it comes to chocolate sadly). I think this is why Godiva is not safe. Its just a good idea to check.
    • TRUSTING OTHERS about GLUTEN! how do you know if someone has used gluten free flour?
      Wow you all have more balls than I do. I've been gluten free since 2007 and I'm still afraid of offending people. It gives me lots of troubles, really. I'm more like rockstarkate I guess...the "people pleasing" aspect.  I love how you all just have the flat out rule I Will Not Eat It Unless I or a Celiac Made it. (Or a trusted family member).  I still simper and grovel and cringe and apologetically turn things away.  People still put dishes in my face and say "This should be gluten free..."  and I have to awkwardly not eat it and then seem rude.  I've done the whole...checking the bottles thing too.  I do try to dart out of things more though now. I volunteered in other countries in recent years and I felt as vulnerable as all heck, having to rely on them to make food, as well as definitely feeling like I offended people who didn't get it at all. I was feeling brave when I signed up for those but after the second time I was like okay, the fear/anxiety/stress about the food is too much. I managed to dodge out of getting sick, and for the most part people humored me...but it was pretty difficult because I don't like offending people, especially other cultures, with them trying to be nice and make food for me...pretty sure I did offend people as well as annoy many others.  Anyway...no OP, you are not alone. For sure I have trust issues eating other people's food. They say they know but I do truly doubt they are as strict as I would be.   A few times I will still brave eating something...like some little mozzarella balls with vinegar...though, I did still look at the labels.  Someone had to give me a persuasive speech and show me all ingredients (just salt and pepper) after making me chicken wings once. I do tell people, basically, NOT to make me stuff. But they still do.  Another time a friend had worked really hard and was having a terrible time and offered me a burger patty when I arrived, assuring me it was gluten free. I knew I hadn't been there to watch whether she used the "bun spatula" on it or not...but I just didn't feel like giving her a fight about it since she was having a rough time and hosts like to feel they are feeding guests, blah blah. So I ate it. And got glutened. And wailed and gnashed my teeth haha. Lesson learned.  I need to stick to my guns more. I just always feel like I'm being too "difficult" as it is. But...sigh.  It is refreshing for me to read these empowered no BS responses though. You all remind me of where I'm coming from, and not that I'm just being some kind of high maintenance, rude, crazy person. You'd think after, what, nine years now, I wouldn't still be bothered by it...
    • Mashed potato soup during healing
      I was on pretty much a liquid diet for 8 months waiting for my nausea to go away completely. I mostly had mashed potato soup, 1/2 fat ice cream (mostly whey, not milk), chocolate drink (no added milk) and gummy vitamins. The soup tasted yummy and I'm still alive so I figured I'd share it for people not feeling well in the beginning. I've been noticing people with alot of trouble keeping food down in recent posts. I couldn't have milk or eggs, but the cheese in the recipe didn't bother me at all. Notice the lack of spices. Makes it easy on the stomach.   Mashed potato soup: Boiled yukon gold potatoes (5lb bag) 1 package cauliflower, steamed 4-6 slices of Land O'Lakes white American cheese 4 tablespoons butter salt 16 cups homemade chicken broth, salted   Chop steamed cauliflower into teensy bits (pureed is better). Put in mixer with butter, cheese and a potato or two. Blend while slowly adding potatoes. Keep whipping for a few minutes to insure the cauliflower and potatoes are not lumpy at all. Salt to taste.   Combine 1/2 cup mashed potatoes to 1 cup salted chicken broth. Mix with spoon until mashed potatoes have completely dissolved. Enjoy. Individual servings can be frozen.   Homemade chicken broth: makes 8 - 10 cups of broth   1 organic chicken (regular chickens are too big) 1 stalk celery 1 carrot 1 large bay leaf 1/2 package fresh thyme from the  herb section of the vegetables area   Put all ingredients in pressure cooker along with 1.5 liters water. Bring to pressure. Cook for 35 minutes. Separate broth from solids. Separate broth from fat. Add ridiculous quantities of salt until it tastes like soup. Sorry I use a salt grinder so I don't have precise salt quantities.    
    • I have kidney stones...spent last night at the ER
      Hey ArtG, I saw the urologist today...unfortunately for me they can still see my stones on an xray.  Sigh.  The largest is 3x6 in my right kidney.  He does not believe I can pass this one on my own.   All of my bloodwork came back fine.  Nothing alarming in the urinalysis either. His recommendations...keep drinking tons of water.  I had 4.2 liters of urine output when I tested.  Add in a fish oil supplement.  Decrease sodium intake.  Limit meat to 10 ounces per day.  Increase dietary calcium.   Work at lowering oxalate consumption...my urinary oxalate was 45.  They want it between 20 and 40.  But he gets people that are over 100 so mine is not all that high. 3 options...1. watch and wait.  Recheck in a few months to see if there is stone growth.  2. Shock wave lithotripsy.  3. Let it come out when it decides to and see what happens. I just don't know.  I hate the idea of being put under as they would do for the shock wave thing.  I've had too many surgeries already.  It scares me to be honest.  I also don't want to deal with another episode.   I don't know what I'll do.  We've got a vacation planned at the end of the month and I just want to go and enjoy that.  Not worry about kidney stones. I'm sorry to hear about your upcoming surgery...it really is always something!
    • celiac disease is psychosomatic
      I know what food products are. Probiotics was a recent example I saw on the news about things labeled gluten free that were not gluten free. So, supplement labels in addition to food labels.

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!
