Gf Superbowl Party
0

1 post in this topic

With so many comments on difficulty finding stuff to eat, and on in particular noting that he/she (I forgot :-( ) likes dip with veggies, I thought I'd post what we had for our SuperBowl party. Everyone but my husband and I were vegetarian, and I'm the only celiac, but everyone loved it:

Salsa Fresca

4 tomatoes, seeded and diced

1 small red onion, diced

6 cloves garlic, diced finely

1/2 lime, juiced

few sprigs of cilantro, finely chopped

1/4-1/2 tsp salt (to taste)

Mix ingredients in a bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and let sit in the fridge for at least an hour before serving.

Guacamole

2 avocados, diced and mashed

1 lime, juiced

1 tomato, seeded and chopped

6 cloves garlic, diced finely

Mix ingredients in a bowl. Cover with plastic wrap (pressing plastic wrap down onto the guacamole) and let sit in the fridge for at least an hour before serving.

Hummus

1 can garbanzo beans

2-3 tablespoons roasted sesame tahini

2-4 tablespoons olive oil

1 large lemon, juiced

6-8 large cloves garlic, chopped roughly

1 bunch chives, chopped (optional)

pinch of cayanne pepper (optional)

pinch of paprika (optional)

Throw everything in to a Cuisinart (a blender ought to suffice), and blend until the desired consistence (should be thick) - adding more olive oil to thin.

Veggie Platter

3 carrots, cut into thin strips (half inch by half inch by three inches or so)

3 zucchini, cut as above

1 jicama, cut as above

2 bell peppers, cut as above

juice of one lemon

Toss carrots in lemon juice to prevent browning, then arrange everything on a plate and serve with the dips above.

Bean Salad

1 can black beans, drained

1 can kidney beans, drained

1 zucchini, grated

1 red onion, chopped

1 tomato, seeded and chopped

1 tsp cumin

1/2 tsp cayanne pepper

1/4 tsp corriander

1/4 tsp ancho chili pepper (optional)

1/4 tsp chipotle chili pepper (optional)

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 tsp black pepper

Mix all indredients in a bowl. Cover and let sit in the fridge for at least an hour before serving.

Cucumber Salad

2 cucumbers, seeded, quartered, and cut into thin slices

2 tbsp plain yogurt (not low-fat)

2 tbsp sour cream (not low-fat)

pinch or two of salt (to taste)

pinch of black pepper

Mix ingredients until cucumbers are covered in yogurt/sour cream mixture. Serve cold.

Pasta with Parmesean Cheese

1 box Ancient Harvest Qunioa Shell Pasta, cooked a bare five minutes

1/3 cup grated parmesean cheese

1/3 cup grated romano cheese

Preheat oven to 350F. After cooking and draining the pasta, toss it in a baking dish and sprinkle the cheese all over it. Bake for 15-20 minutes.

Marinated Grilled Vegetables

3 zucchini, cut in half each way

1 green bell pepper, cut into large pieces (about two inches by one inch)

1 red bell pepper, cut likewise

30 medium sized white mushrooms, cleaned

1/4 cup high quality balsamic vinegar

3 tablespoons olive oil

1/2 tsp ground sage

1 tsp rosemary - chopped up or ground

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 tsp pepper

Combine last six ingredients, and pour over vegetables in a large bowl. Let marinate in the fridge for two hours or most of a day. Place the vegetables on a hot grill (zucchini cut side down, mushrooms stem side down, bell peppers internal side down), and cook for 10-15 minutes or until done. While those cook, heat a small pan and pour the remaining marinade in and leave it to simmer and reduce until it's syrup like (about the full time the vegetables cook). Pour the syruped marinade over the vegetables after they are taken off the grill.

We also had tri tip to make the hubby happy, but that's just steak (and seasoning) meets grill... :-)

    • I sit in an ice bath after a long training (running or riding).  It speeds my recovery, I swear!  
    • Oh, one last thing..... ICE PACKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You'll feel better. Hey, you have a tub? Want to join the polar bear club in the privacy of your own home? Fill that thing with cold water & dump a 5 or 10 lb bag of ice in there. I'm serious.
    • I don't care what she specializes in, you MAKE her do a dh biopsy. I'm not being mean. Please understand that. It's just that I've heard this a thousand times before - no, a thousand one hundred!  Here's another thing ~~~ get her to order a eTG aka TG3 serum (blood test). That is specific for dh.  Oh gosh! Don't you just hate the ones in your ears???!!!!! Nah, we hate ALL of them! I swear though, when those suckers get going in & on your ears it just drives you stark raving mad!!!!! You've convinced me there is more than ample reason to strongly suspect it's dh.  Here's a tip..... the patterning the lab will be looking for is very easily destroyed by scratching so pick you out some prime places that are new & maybe, just maybe you haven't scratched them to smithereens thus far, and make some super thick gauze bandages & place them over those places so even if you reach to scratch (& we know you will! right?) the gauze will remind you & hopefully help to protect it. The biopsy needs to be taken from a clear area adjacent to a fresh lesion. No steroid creams okay? Not till after the biopsy. BTW, if she wants to put you on steroids after the biopsy be warned, 99% of the time there is such a backlash of the rash the moment you go off the steroid that you will wish you were never born. A dx of dh IS a dx of celiac disease & no further testing is needed. Please come back & update us after you see her tomorrow. In the meantime you have my heartfelt sympathy. Take those cold showers & grit your teeth. Hopefully you will soon be able to go gluten free & start getting some relief.   
    • Extremely itchy and keeps me up at night to the point I was taking cold showers at 3am.   Currently my ears, scalp, feet, and chin just will not stop itching, my elbows have the rash and look purple. Eventually the rash will heal and leaves scars that seem to be purplish in color. I have not tried gluten free diet yet.  Waiting for all the testing to stop.  The new allergist i am seeing tomorrow specializes in skin disorders.
    • I am so sorry for your suffering.  Your story drives home the point that having Celiac Disease drives us all to do our own research and try to find a doc to help--if we are lucky. I wish you a speedy recovery and my most earnest wish that you are NEVER cross-contaminated again! You are a real trooper (little comfort, I know).  Wish I could do more.
