Slightly confused....do you want new recipes that you haven't seen, or new products that don't require baking and recipes? Thanks,

I think I know what you mean, I've been looking for more recipes that just don't use gluten instead of recipes that are substitutes for gluten-containing foods, right? There are lots of pizza crust, pancake, cake recipes etc. but I really prefer to use food that doesn't have any gluten in it normally because then I don't feel so depressed about how second-rater it is compared to normal food. <_< Although I did make some pretty decent gluten-free blueberry pancakes this morning... ;)

Try this for lunch;

Combine;

1 can light tuna

about 1/4 cup mayo

1/2 tsp fresh chopped cilantro

dash pure chili powder (as much as your taste desires)

dash onion powder

dash of dill weed

1/2 tsp of salt

dash of pepper

Spread contents over a gluten-free tortilla, sprinkle on some shredded cheese, fold and eat- you can dip it in salsa if you like.

Here's a dinner recipe that's easy to make.

From the kitchen of Kent Turner;

Burgundy Mushroom beef

Serve over gluten-free egg noodles, or serve alongside rice or mash instead.

Total meal cost: about $15.00 (depending mostly on the cost of the steak used)

Serves: about 3 people

Total cooking time: about 20 minutes.

3/4 pound (about 1 medium sized steak) choice boneless ribeye, cut into strips.

5 cloves garlic

2 cups burgundy wine

1/2 cup water

1/4 cup butter

1/4 cup cream

1/2 tsp or so of fresh thyme leaves, or 1/4 tsp dried thyme

1 cup milk

1 tsp corn starch stirred into 1/4 cup cold water

8-oz package of mushrooms, sliced (I use button or Crimini mushrooms, but you could experiment here)

1/2 tsp salt

Split the garlic cloves lengthwise into halves, peel. Heat a skillet until drops of water sizzle on it, put steak strips and garlic directly onto it. Allow the steak and garlic to brown thoroughly on one side before stirring each time. When the steak and garlic are thoroughly browned add the burgundy wine to the skillet. Simmer down to a thick sizzling paste (do not burn). Add 1/2 cup water. Add cream, milk, and thyme. Add sliced mushrooms and stir well. Allow the mixture to simmer down a bit, then add the corn starch mixture. The mixture should begin to thicken slightly. Add salt to taste.

I think catfish has the idea. I was saying that I looked all in this section and its all talk about "baked goods"- meaning desserts, treats, and all that jazz. I am wanting what catfish posted, meals. I have the dessert and sweets bit down it's just a lack of idae for regular meals- lunch/dinner. Oh, I like the idea of using stuff in meals that are already glutenfree. Thanks for the help already!

I find that when people try to think outside the box for dinner and lunch solutions they sometimes try to hard to find something different. What I mean by that is that you can take a salad and make it taste like a new meal every time you make it by just varying the vinaigrette.

- Soups, stews and chowders are always good gluten free options and so versitile.

- Make a variety of sauces for your baked or grill chicken or fish.

- Toss diced meat (tuna, ham, chicken, turkey etc.) with mayo, onion, celery and

your favorite herbs and eat as a salad or wrap in a gluten-free tortilla with lettuce and

tomato.

- Vary your cooking methods to create different dishes, like braising, frying,

sauteeing, baking or grilling.

Here is an awesome sauce recipe that I use over grilled or baked chicken and also have used it on seared tuna. Tha kalamatas make it a little on the salty side, so don't add salt until you taste it without:

Vierge Sauce

1/4 C olive oil

1/4 C freshly squeezed lemon juice

2 cloves garlic, minced

1 shallot, minced

2 T basil, minced

1 plum or roma tomato, seeded and diced

3 T kalamata olives, minced

Combine all ingredients over medium heat and stir until hot, por over hot grilled or baked chicken or fish, serve with a large salad.

Enjoy and good luck!

Hi,

I have a quick and easy dish if you like broccoli. :D

PASTA WITH BROCCOLI

Cook broccoli flowers that have been separated. Do not overcook. I nuke them a few minutes.

Boil 1/2 lb. gluten free pasta, your choice of shape.

Toss broccoli and pasta together with some good olive oil, crushed garlic, {I like garlic, so I am very generous with this.} grated cheese, and pinch of basil.

Top each serving with fresh ground pepper and more grated cheese.

Yummy :P I could eat this quick meal frequently as I am such a pasta lover.

Hi,

This is ready in 40 minutes. If you have time, make the rice ahead of time to cut down on prep time. We usually decide on this at the last minute and I do not have the shrimp, ham, or cooked chicken available. I omit it and it is still delicious.

FRIED RICE

2 to 3 cups cooked white rice 2 carrots, peeled and diced

3 tablespoons sesame oil 1 green pepper, chopped

1 small onion chopped 1/2 cup green peas

1 clove garlic, chopped 1 egg, beaten

2 stalks celery, chopped 1/4 cup gluten-free soy sauce

shrimp, diced ham, cooked chicken optional

Heat a heavy frying pan or wok over medium/high heat. Pour in sesame oil and stir in onion. Fry until golden then add garlic. When garlic is lightly browned [do not burn], mix in optional ingred. if you have any available.

Lower heat to medium and stir in celery, carrot, peas, and green pepper. Fry until

vegetables are crisp-tender. Stir in beaten egg and cook just until egg is scrambled and firm.

Mix the rice with veggies and stir in soy sauce.

No leftovers in our house!!!! Very good and very easy, too!

Hi, It's me again......

another favorite and easy, too! Good if you are not lactose intolerant.

CHICKEN IN SAUCE

Take a few chicken breasts, I use boneless and skinless.

Cut into pieces about the size of a deck of cards.

Mix whipping cream, 1 pint size, with a package

of Lipton dry onion soup mix.

Pour this over the chicken and bake about 45 min. or so.

It will look like a nice golden gravy and is so delicious.

You folks will think I make only quick and easy meals, but I really do

a lot of recipes that take time. I think so many people now-a-days want

fast, easy, and good so I am trying to give that.

You can email me if you are looking for anything in particular.

:lol: Jean

Hi,

I'm new to the board and these recipes all sound yummy, I was getting hungry reading them!

Question though, my daughter was newly diagnosed and loves salads. I wanted to know if I should opt for cooked veggies for now instead of raw. Would this make digestion easier on her? Thanks.

I didnt think Lipton dry onion soup mix was gluten-free...I thought it had flour in it? Am I wrong?

For breakfast, I've made my own version of "honey bunches of oats' cereal. I mix sweetened gluten-free rice flakes with sweetened gluten-free corn flakes. Then taking my own homemade McCann's oatmeal granola, I add that to the mix too. I put it into a big rubbermaid cereal container, and viola! My kids are always begging me for it...when they wouldnt even eat the flakes by themselves. I find mixing the cereals make for more interesting taste combinations than just eating, yum...boring corn flakes. I sometimes add some dried fruit in there too. The granola is easy to make. I use the recipe in my better homes and garden's cookbook. I substitute the honey for half maple syrup and half corn syrup and I only add the coconut and almonds...not all the other nuts and seeds. Once I accidentally doubled the oats and coconut and forgot to double the oil and syrups. It turned out even better...less clumpy...but I havent tried it again to see if that was a fluke. I also enjoy eating gluten-free waffles, or soy yogurt. I often have toast or gluten-free muffins with my eggs.

For lunch, I like making tuna fish. I use dijon mustard (or dijonaise in a pinch), mayonaise, celery salt, minced onion, and pepper. I put more dijon in than the mayo. The mayo is just for creamyness. The mustard adds extra flavor and cuts the fat. Tostitos bakes tortilla chips have become like my "crackers" to me and I like dipping them in the tuna fish. Or, I've topped them with cheddar cheese (before being diagnosed with milk/cassein/whey allergy and having to give up dairy). I've also taken Oscar Myer turkey breast slices and topped the corn chips with that and the cheese, in the past. I have found most of the Oscar Myer products to use corn starch as a filler, so I will often eat those meats in a salad (chefs salad) as long as there's no caramel coloring. I dont know about those products. And I'll even have the hot dogs (the light dogs are pretty good and only 90 calories per dog. The fat free are so-so, and only 40 calories per dog). Lately, I've enjoyed eating silk soy yogurt (better than dairy yogurt, in my opinion) for lunch. I do make a lot of my own bread, so I still have my ocassional peanut butter and jelly sandwich.

For dinners, I've been eating a lot of beans and rice...mostly because my children LOVE it...it's like their "macaroni and cheese". My husband seasons the beans with tomato sauce, cumin, coriender, cilantro, garlic, onion, and oregano and then we pour it over rice. I love tinkiyada pasta (rice pasta)...hope I spelled that right. It tastes and has a similar texture to wheat pastas. We eat that as spaghetti and the kids don't even notice I've changed the type of pasta we eat.

I used their elbows for mac and cheese and it was really good. My husband's grandmother has a super simple way to make baked mac n cheese. Boil the pasta, layer pasta, butter slivers, cheese, pasta, butter, cheese, until casserole dish is full. In another bowl, take 1-2 eggs and whisk with milk, salt and pepper, and dry mustard if desired. Pour over the noodles, like pouring milk over cereal. Bake 350 degrees about 1 hour. It's not as creamy as the kind where you make the sauce ahead and thicken with corn starch, but it is really fast and tastes good. If I use this recipe, I usually use a 4 cheese blend and add some shredded american to help with creaminess.

I also make a lemon pepper baked chicken. Before I eliminated dairy from my diet, I would melt butter then add garlic, lemon, and pepper, and brush it on chicken pieces (still on the bone) through out the baking process. gluten-free italian dressing is another quick fix for marinades and brushing on meats.

Since having to eliminate the dairy, and working 2nd shift, I've made a lot less dinners. I really miss my cheese. :( Hope some of this gives you ideas too.

We live along the California coast and a big thing here is barbeque. One of our favorite Sunday or Saturday evening meals is very popular here.

First take a cut of meat called flap meat or in the mexican markets it is called Ranchera. Marinade it in orange juice, lime juice, lemon juice and various spices depending on how spicey you like your food. We use a combination of chili power, garlic, salt, pepper. Flap meat is usually sliced thin in sheets. We all sit outside around the barbeque (usually with a good bottle of tequila!) I make a platter of various toppings such as:

cilantro

lemons

limes

cheese

avocado or guacamole

salsa

onions

various sliced hot peppers

various chili sauces of different "grades"

Cook the meat over the grill till done and warm the corn tortillas on the grill

Slice the meat thinly

Everyone sits around the table making their own tacos as the meat and tortillas come of the grill (while taking shots of tequila or drinking margaritas!).

It is a very social, casual, fun meal that has become a summertime tradition here.

    • Thank you everyone! Good to know I am not alone with this. I am asking for a referral to a new cardio. Hopefully it will all go away the longer I am gluten-free. It started up in February/March after a gluten challenge and mostly vanished until July when I had a lot of shortness of breath. It absolutely was CRAZY just a few days after the glutening. I was gasping for breath and the beats were all over the place just walking through a parking garage and I was only mildy anemic at the time.   But it seems to "quiver" and do funny things for a bit still. I sort of theorized maybe it was inflammation in the heart because after this last glutening, my head felt like it was in a vice and my eyes would sting or get stabbing pain hurt (that is finally going away thankfully...knock on wood).  The head/eye pressure I learned also happens to my sibling who has celiac and his naturopath told him that sometimes the brain gets inflamed. Hopefully I can meet the new cardio soon and feel confident that he is taking me seriously. It is sort of difficult to feel confident in the opinion of a doctor that your ticker is ok when they are not really listening and end up making you cry. LOL. A friend of mine in the mental health field recently listened to my story of doc after doc and test after test and said that it was akin to the folk story of blind men describing an elephant. A group of blind men all feel one part of an elephant (tusk, tail, ear, tail) and then compare notes only to find they all disagree.  In some  versions they argue intensely. In other versions they have to collaborate and listen to each other in order to "describe" an elephant.    
    • Good afternoon! I am new to this board and fairly new to researching Celiac Disease, although I had a general idea what it was. My health has become a huge mystery to me, and it's one that I am desperate to solve. The biggest issue right now is horrible, life affecting fatigue. I have been dealing with it for several years now- as many as 5 to 6. It has gotten progressively worse, and nothing at all helps. Sleep apnea has been ruled out. Intestinal issues are something I have dealt with for almost two decades. I'm 45, but I've already had two colonoscopies as well as two endoscopies. My first endoscopy was as a child for persistent, severe stomach pain. My last colonoscopy and endoscopy was two years ago. The only thing that has come from those is an Irritable Bowel type condition and GERD, which is pretty bad. My bowel movements have always been crazy. They can be very normal and healthy to completely crazy. I've had periods of persistent diarrhea to occasional constipation, which is a fairly new thing within the last year. Last week, I went from having diarrhea that morning to hard, round balls of stool by that evening. My most common stools here lately, though, are not quite diarrhea, but more fluffy, large piles. Gas is an ongoing, daily issue for me. I have copious amounts of gas every day no matter what I eat or drink. Most of the gas in non-odorous but it can be very loud. I am currently on a total of 60 mg of Ritalin per day just to function. I often add energy pills, purchased from places such as GNC, because the Ritalin isn't working. Yesterday, I took both doses of Ritalin and two energy pills, and I passed out on the couch after work. I work from 7:30am to 3:30pm, and my work day is nothing too crazy. I try to keep very consistent sleep hours and could easily sleep to 1:00pm or longer if I don't have to get up for something. I sometimes have short periods of energy in the mornings, but that is usually over by noon. The quality of my life is greatly affected. I don't want to go anywhere or do anything because I am way too tired. I'm trying to keep up with my exercising, but that is also a struggle.  I have a history of clinical depression for practically all my adulthood, but it has been very well managed for the last four years. The fatigue is currently causing a great deal of depression, but it is very different from the clinical depression that I use to deal with. When I don't feel sleepy and tired, I don't feel depressed. When the fatigue sets in, I feel very irritable and sad. I realize that the stimulants can cause irritability, but I don't feel irritable or sad when I'm not feeling fatigued.  I've only recently began to explore that the fatigue and the intestinal issues could be related. I have always accepted that I have a sensitive, cooky digestive track. The increasing, unrelenting fatigue is what has lead me to exploring the possibility that everything could be related. I did have blood work last November. My doctor did not test for anything Celiac Disease specific, but she did do a Vitamin D, ferritin level and overall metabolic panel. All of that is normal. My thyroid level is also normal, and I do take thyroid hormone because I had half of my thyroid removed 11 years ago due to what turned out to be a benign thyroid tumor.  I just saw my doctor two weeks ago, and she increased the dosage of my Ritalin. That has not helped at all. She has never mentioned Celiac Disease to me before. I made an appointment for this Friday afternoon to talk about it, but I keep wondering if I'm even heading in a direction that makes sense. I decided to post here for some guidance. I'm sorry this has been so long. I'm not really into cutting something totally out of my diet just to see what happens. I also feel like that if I have something that is poisoning my system, I need a real clinical diagnosis of that. I feel like maybe I'm grasping at straws now and imagining a correlation that isn't there. I am not looking for a quick fix, but right now I have no idea what needs to be fixed. I am open to any information and/or suggestions. Thanks so much!   Jennifer

    • I too have heart palps, flutters, skips whatever you want to call them. Ecg shows nothing. I was told by my doctor it is due to my low iron which is due to celiac. They pretty much went away after being gluten-free. But occasionally do come back. I've actually been having them for the past 3 days. But I was glutened with really severe reaction about a week ago so not sure if its due to that. Or if iron is low right now. I am on supplements but it still goes up and down. I hear you about doctors. It seems if you don't do research yourself or ask questions they don't say or do or test for anything. 
    • For a number of years pre diagnosis I had irregular heartbeats - anything from a fluttering type thing to seemingly skipping one or more beats to rapid beats to something like a short drum riff. I had multiple ECG's which didn't find anything odd. It never did it when I was at the doctors or getting the ECG's. Sometimes it seemed to pound very hard & rapid, at these times I discovered if I just laid down flat on my back, it would restore normal rhythm almost instantly. These things happened at random whether I was at rest, sitting, standing, running or working hard. It was always short lived -- lasting only 1 to several seconds, perhaps the longest was close to a minute. I too have little faith in docs as I've had my share of being blown off, to misdiagnoses. The whole heart thing quit after I had been gluten-free for a while but if I get glutened, it returns.
