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.

Lee :lol:

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.

    • puffiness in face
      The puffiness in my face went down a lot after I went gluten free. Old photos shock me sometimes now! Your doctor should be able to test you for food intolerance? Here in UK I did tests for wheat, nut, mustard etc. You can do a blood test and there's also skin prick tests I think, am sure others here would know more.  Good luck    
    • glutened by lays potato chips?
      Here in the UK I can't eat Lay's owned Walkers crisps as even the ones without gluten ingredients can cause a reaction. I read it was something to do with their production processes. Looks like others have same problems too:  
    • Newly diagnosed and totally overwhelmed
      Don't apologise! Not needed here at least where people know exactly what you're going through. As Cyclinglady says, you're now in a grieving process for the former, carefree attitude to food you've now lost. You may find this helpful in understanding the psychological journey you're on: http://psychcentral.com/lib/the-5-stages-of-loss-and-grief/ It WILL get better. Eating cleanly is very good advice as you heal but you can then find the replacement snacks and treats that are safe to eat.  I now know which chocolate bars are ok, which brands of crisps (chips) are safe etc.  I don't drink now, but I did find there were some fantastic ciders that I could tolerate and you've always got wine! In fact one of the weirder discoveries post gluten was that my past (vicious) hangovers were far more about gluten reactions than the alcohol itself. A cider hangover is a breeze in comparison All the best!  
    • glutened by lays potato chips?
      I ate some baked lays last night and felt very sick all night and haven't been feeling great all day today. Other than that I didn't eat anything different from what I normally eat and there was no risk of cross contamination with anything.. These were the only thing I had that was different. They're labeled gluten free so I figured it would be okay, but I started feeling sick pretty soon after eating them. I'm not sure if it's another ingredient in them or what (and i know it's not the soy).. Has anyone else had a reaction to lays potato chips?
    • Symptoms In Toddlers?
      Welcome Ashley! Here are the current tests.  The DGP versions seem to work a bit better than the TTG in small children.  So, ask for the complete panel (and get it all in one stick....my 15 year still hates to get blood drawn ! http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ Your doctors are wrong!  They must be reading old medical text books.  Not all kids or people have failure to thrive!  You can even be symptom free!. I was anemic and had no intestinal issues when I was diagnosed.  celiac disease affects everyone differently and that's probably why so many folks are not diagnosed. Your kids (parents, siblings too) should be tested every few years (sooner if symptoms develop) per all the leading celiac researchers/doctors if a first-degree relative has celiac disease (like you!)  celiac disease can develop at any age! Hope this helps!

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      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.
