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 already did. Thats how i found the place. Its amazing to actually go to a restraunt again.
    • This is EXACTLY what happens to me. It has twice now and both times was after both glutening episodes but once it was the day after and the other time it was a week and a half. So I'm still not sure if it's related or strange bug bites...

      Did they stop happening when she stopped being glutened? Did you decide they were definitely related? I'm really confused by this and would love to know whether to insecticide my house or....
    • Thankyou both! I was wondering if my high levels left much doubt on the diagnosis. I don't see the GI until the 15th Sep and I don't think I can stand to eat gluten in that time. If he tells me to I will do so after then. After 25 years of symptoms I don't think there is much chance of healing my bowel In a couple of weeks. I'm actually terrified of the damage they might find. But I think I will need the endo since there may be other things going on with me. So great they didn't put your son through the biopsy! Once I have a formal diagnosis I have my kids to worry about also. I can't even stand the thought of my daughter having a blood test. I think she would need to be sedated as she is so fearful and pain sensitive. My son is not yet 2 so I don't think they will test him. I'm feeling so off at the moment. I think I have some anxiety and reflux going on complicating things quite a bit.
    • My son's antibodies were 300. Based on his extremely high levels, his pediatric GI suggested genetic testing instead of the biopsy. Genetic testing can't diagnose celiac on its own but combined with such high levels, the gi dr was confident a positive genetic test would confidently diagnose celiac. He warned that biopsies are small snapshots of the intestine and can miss damage. He said this is an approach used very often in Europe but not as much in the US. What sold me on that approach was the ability to put my son directly on a gluten free diet instead of waiting three weeks for the biopsy, during which time he would continue to eat gluten and feel terrible. I'm not sure if this is more common with younger patients though (our son is two), based on the idea that he's had less time to inflict damage that would show in a biopsy? We are very happy that we immediately started the gluten free diet and chose the genetic testing. Our son got the proper diagnosis and his recent number shows a drop to 71 after only 4.5 months gluten free! Not sure if this helps. Good luck and I hope you feel better soon!
    • We have been off gluten for a while now, and symptoms return when I've allowed gluten full meals… so something still isn't sitting right with me.  Checking with her doc about seeing a pediactric GI although I'm not sure how long that will take since we live in small town America. I know she didn't get at least one of the recommended full panel tests but maybe two, can someone help clarify, or is she missing two? DGP for sure and possibly EMA? And if I understand what I'm reading in other posts that the DGP can be more accurate? Thanks Her blood panel results: Ttg ab iga <.5u/ml ttg igg <.8u/ml aga ab iga <.2 u/ml aga an igg <.7u/ml iga 61mg/dL
