Hi All -
Just joined the forum. I recently read Grain Brain (A Must Read) due to my wife's ill health. She has been sick a long time and she has been from diagnosis to diagnosis and ultimately the doctors just give her another pill to treat the symptoms. I am convinced that most of her 13 surgeries have been from a gluten intolerance. Definitely gluten intolerant so I have put our family on a gluten free / low carb diet. She is already showing signs of improvement (4 weeks) but I am already seeing a potential problem. I am finding it is pretty easy to cook gluten free but I am having difficulty coming up with a good variety of "GOOD" sides so I thought about starting this thread so people can share their "SIMPLE" gluten free sides. Green beans, cauliflower, broccoli, cabbage, are all awesome but we seem to be eating it all the time now. Please share your successes with side dishes to help us all. I will kick it off with one we have fell in love with. I am sure it is certainly not new to this community but we have fallen in love with it. We prefer it to mashed potatoes now.
1 Large Head of Cauliflower
1/2 Stick of Butter
Break cauliflower into florets and boil until tender
Cream cauliflower using food processor or immersion blender adding milk to desired consistency. No milk may be needed depending on how much water is retained by the cauliflower.
Don't know what happens but this simple recipe creates a sweet creamy "heavenly" dish that never disappoints!
