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... :-)

    • Thanks for posting this Adrien, it's a great list and I and others will appreciate the effort and the thought behind it. I loved my time in Malaysia and I'm glad I sampled all the food I could whilst I was still on an unrestricted diet. The good thing is that, like you say, some of the nice Malay foods are still ok. As a backpacker I survived on a lot of nasi goreng and laksa, nice to think if I return there I could still do the same Terima kasih!
    • I have posted on here before. DQ2, brother with celiac, DGP iGA was the only mildly elevated test. Was gluten-free so did 6 week challenge last winter. Negative biopsy. I am gluten-free now but do go out to eat. Prior to the challenge my health was good. Since then I have: Chest pain, pain between shoulder blades, periods of shortness of breath, heart palpitations, one instance of a heart arrythmia episode, neck is tender to touch on one side (they kept saying sinuses or TMJ which my dentist vetoed) ear ache, bowels never sink. Numbness and tingling. Blood pressure variations. Could be doing chores and feel dizzy and it might be 84/52.  not super low, but not typical for me if I'm running around the house.While other days I am mildly hypertensive. Recently lost 5 lbs in 8 days without trying. Recently electrolytes were low, alkaline phosphatese was low. Ferritin started dropping so started liquid iron 2-3 times per day 4 months ago. Primary watching that, I am not anemic but we are nowhere near iron overload either.  GI doc was a dick. Did not even know DGP replaced older tests and he was very condescending When I begged him for help recently and told me to get a second opinion which is exactly what I plan on doing.  I now have pain in my upper GI area. It is tender to touch. I had my gallbladder out in 97 along with a stone and infection in my bile duct. It hurts in this area. Pancreatic enzymes look fine, liver enzymes fine. Pancreatic ultrasound fine. I will now be doing a EUS Soon to look at bile duct, pancreas and liver.   so a typical day for me is that I might feel fine for a while and then suddenly feel like I'm going to pass out. really dizzy, numbness in odd places, like my body has been hijacked. I will typically eat a bunch of food something high protein and in about an hour or so I start to feel better. However, then my upper stomach starts to hurt in place of the passing out feeling. blood sugars are also normal. After getting the " it must be panic attacks" and condescending looks a million times my primary finally ordered an ultrasound of my sore neck and there is an abnormality in my thyroid which she says looks like possibly Hashti's. Except for one time, all my serum TSH tests were normal. We have more blood work on Monday. As I have not put on any weight and there are other symptoms that are closer to Graves.  Has anyone else had any thyroid issues that followed doing a gluten challenge?  where is your stomach pain? Do you have it above or below your belly button? Mine feels like it's in the pancreas area, like 2-3 inches above the belly button and when I push on it it's tender, but not all the time. sometimes i feel it in my back. 
    • Thanks for sharing with me.  I really appreciate it.  Honestly, after a glutening last summer (still do not know what glutened me), I did not eat out for a year!  The risk was too great as my healing time took 3 months (for symptoms to subside) and six months to regain lost weight.  Our recent vacation to Europe was worth the risk  as we traveled with our entire extended family, but we were extra cautious and ate only at celiac-approved places.  Otherwise, we "dined" at markets or ate the food we brought from home.  Thankfully, we did not get glutened (at least we don't think so!)  
    • I do not struggle with this and I was brought up the same way as you. I don't struggle because for many years off & on we didn't have a bathtub, only showers as well as this being therapy or medicinal for the skin - heck even for the muscles as I age. I figure I've earned my right to luxuriate or medicate with baths any time I've a mind to. My husband saw just how bad my dh got & NEVER begrudges me a nice long soak in the big soaking tub we now have.
    • Hi, No, I do not have celiac  disease. I have an ankylosing spondylitis which is an auto-immune disease provoking an inflammation of the joints. Under the advice and supervision of my doctor and the professor at the hospital I follow a gluten free & casein free diet, which is extremely successful in preventing inflammatory events. And I've been doing so, strictly, for more than 6 years. So I'm not Celiac, but I can tell you that I react strongly every time I take gluten even in small amounts. Even soya sauce, which according to this website has an almost zero dose of gluten, is a lot too much for me. Nevertheless I allow myself to eat food which has been processed in a factory which processes gluten. To conclude, I would say that when you are travelling, especially in a country where celiac disease is scarcely known, you should be twice as careful as when you're going out at home. In the end you can never guarantee that the cook has cleaned his pan after using soya sauce and so on... You can only bet
