Calling All Gf Cooks!

19 posts in this topic

Okay all you fabulous gluten-free cooks out there here is the deal.... as some of you know I have been putting together recipes for some time now to put out cookbook. So far, I have nearly 100 recipes, but I would like to get a few more before I present it to the publisher. So if any of you would like to contribute, I'd love to hear/read your suggestions/recipes.

Please keep in mind that my book is not exactly like the books on gluten-free cooking you find now on the market, mine is more about (somewhat upscale, but not advanced) cooking with fresh ingredients, and it's going to include the following sections:

Hee hee... thanks, I'm so nervous! I am drafting my proposals for the publishers as we speak and I keep thinking what if they hate it? or scarier still what if they love it? I think no matter what the responses are I'm gonna freak out. :P

Kathleen - are you planning on having some ethnic recipes? Since going gluten-free, I really miss going out to ethnic restaurants...I've been worried that the language barrier isssue would be a problem. (I've only gone once... to an Indian restaurant where the manager spoke English well enough). I'd love to learn to make my own Thai/Indian/ etc. foods. Sara

Would you be willing to post your chili rellenos recipe? I have been lusting for some for a long time now, but too nervous to try. good luck with the publishers. If they don;t think there's a market, just tell them to look at this site, and how hungry we all are for info.

I made some "Char Sui Bao's" today (pronounced cha sue bow), they are a Chinese bun filled with barbequed pork. It was the first time I attemped this particular feat. I had been making them for a couple of years before we went gluten free and hadn't made any since because of the challange, but they turned out awsome! Not quite the depth of color that wheat bread will get, but the taste was almost perfect.... I am definately going to put them into my book.... I am also going to work on a wonton skin, something that we can also use for potstickers too, but I need to find the time to experiment more.

Thanks for all the support guys!

Oops, I forgot... Libby, I don't mind posting the rellanos recipe, give me some time to type it up though, I have it tucked into a drawer with my million other recipes and need to pull it out.

It's really easy though.... roast & skin your chilies, then make a slit down the center and stuff them with cheese (I use monterey jack) then dip in rice flour, beaten egg and gluten-free bread crumbs. Pan fry and serve with a chili sauce or sour cream or whatever you prefer. I will post something a little more specific when I organize everything, but don't be afraid to give them a try.

Are you interested at all in some Indian recipes? In South India they make most of their breads from rice and lentils, and they turn out fantastically.

Kathleen-

thanks for being generous with your recipe- I can't wait to try it out!

shimma-

I would love to try out some indain breads. This is the first time in my life I have been excited about baking, or breads. I tried somebody's cinnamon poori recipe yesterday- yum. I did miss cinamon toast. By all means, throw some ideas out there. I will give em a try.

Here is a wonderful gluten-free fried chicken breast recipe.

1. Dust your chicken with a legal flour

2. Roll it in soaked ground flaxseed. (2 tablespoons of ground flaxseed and 2/3

cup of lukewarm water. Give this mix time to absorb. 4 to 5 minutes.

3. roll it in brown rice bread crumbs. I have only used HOL-GRAIN bread crumbs.

4. Then put in in your pan with olive oil, salt it and cook it. Make sure you have

enough HOT oil so your chicken does not stick.

This is a 5 star out of 5. I make it for company & they love it.

If you want to include this in your recipe book it is ok with me.

Also my favorite gluten-free bread recipe I found on the internet:

http://bread.allrecipies.com/az/lisnsgltnfrbrd.asp

It doesn't have the right consistency for sandwhiches, but if you toast or broil it , it is YUMMY! My whole faimily eats it.

Thanks for all the recipe ideas and the support. I hijacked a Pastry chef friend of mine and she is going to help me expand my dessert section, becuase since I generally only cook "savory" cusine, my dessert section was lacking.

You guys are great!

Kathleen,

Here's a dessert recipe I posted in another thread recently. I've found versions of this recipe in several places, and I particularly like it because it doesn't involve any substitutions -- this is actually a recipe that people who can eat gluten can have. Not that I don't love cake made with gluten-free flour, but sometimes it's nice to just have something like everyone else would. I made this for Christmas this year and my non-celiac parents and their food-snob guests RAVED about it. It's light and airy but intensely flavored.

Here's a flourless recipe that's just incredible:

in heatproof bowl in pan of simmering water, melt 6 oz. semi-sweet chocolate with 3 tablespoons water or coffee and 1 teaspoon gluten-free vanilla.

meanwhile separate 6 eggs and beat the whites into soft peaks.

Thanks Laura!

I have a decadence cake that is very similar, sometimes it's called a fallen souffle cake as well, because of the souffle method used to make it. However, I have never tried to make it into a roll cake and that sounds fantastic.

Just for everyone elses benifit, this cake is awesome served with fresh whipped cream, as suggested by Laura, but also with a raspberry sauce (made by pureeing raspberries, then straining them and adding sugar to taste, may need to heat in sauce pan to melt sugar). It's also very good coated in a chocolate ganache (50% chocolate & 50% heavy cream, melted together), then served with gluten-free vanilla ice cream.

Laura, I would love to see your almond cake recipe, I recently found an almond tart recipe that is really good, but I need to make it gluten-free.

Thanks again!

Well... I have to finish writting it first, but it's nearly there! After that, it goes to print and then you will probably be able to get it anywhere you would buy cookbooks. And I am counting on you to buy it!

Let us know when it comes out, and what the title is. My favorite bookstore has already told me that they will order it for me, if they do not have it in stock.

    • Do you mean something like a protein powder you could mix up?  A lot of them in the US seem to be gluten free.  Maybe just go to your local store and read all the labels?
    • Yeah I ended up allergic to corn, olives, sesame, whey, and peanuts and intolerant to dairy, soy, yeast, enzyme issues with breaking down meats, and egg yolks, along with extreme bloat with any kind of carbs/sugars in moderate amounts. And very adverse reactions to certain artificial sweeteners. So your not alone in all the other issues cropping up, it happens as our bodies adjust.  I eat a bunch of stir frys with veggies, egg whites, plenty of  avocados, and toasted and raw forms of almonds, coconut, cashews, walnuts, hemp seeds, pumpkin seeds, flax seeds, sancha inchi seeds, chia seeds, and sunflower seeds in all forms including making them into butters, spreads, and incorporating them into sauces.   Most meals are forms of soups, omelettes, and stir frys. I do the seeds and nuts on rotation same with my veggies and snack on fruits in small amounts along with some homemade baked goods I make for markets. I do suggest a rotation of foods, my dietician said I need to rotate my foods to prevent more issues, making sure I am off one one for at least 7-14 days at a time completely. I find changing up the spices and rotating my cuisine base works well. I also make puddings, and protein shakes along with nut/seed milks, and different bases and extract flavorings to get my random cravings Taken care of. Guess take what you can from this and and see how it can help you,    As to the tinging, I ended up with both B vitamin and magnesium deficiency issues, the magnesium one caused a fire like tingling in my arms, legs and back, along with muscle pain. Ended up on a doctors best powder form of it so I can dose it out right, and found epsom salt bathes helped.  
    • Hi, I've gained so much knowledge on this forum over the past few months, which I am so thankful for. I can see how much hell people are going through with this disease and it's so lovely to see how much support and advice people give to others on here. I'd like a little bit of reassurance and advice myself from anyone that can help. I've been gluten free for six months. Two weeks after going gluten free I realised I also had a problem with corn so cut out processed food. Over the following weeks and months I continually had problems with food; fruit, dairy, a lot of vegetables, nuts, soya....it's basically dwindled down to just eating potatoes (not white potatoes), cucumber, lettuce, small amounts of red onion, spring onion, sprouts and beetroot. There may be more things I could be okay with but to be honest I'm too scared to try.  Is this all normal? Am I an extreme case? I've been taking some digestive enzymes and probiotics for about six weeks, my acid reflux has dramatically decreased but I always have a lot of loud noises going on in my guts, I'm guessing this is the probiotics working.  I've lost nearly 3st in weight since this started - which I'm not complaining about as I was overweight due to thyroid problems. I've had loads of blood tests done recently, all organs are working 'great' according to my doctor, the only thing they've picked up on is ketones, I seem to be having a glucose problem, which might explain my exhaustion and weight loss. I also have permanent numbness and sometimes tingling in one of my legs and sometimes hands and one shoulder, I thought it could have vitamin B12 deficiency but that's okay according to blood tests. I would be greatful for any replies. Thanks for reading.
    • Hi everyone, I am doing job in restaurant at evening 5 to 12 during working hours no time to do a dinner. I'm thinking to make a shake but don't know the gluten free vitamin or supplement brand which one is good for me and easily available in Berlin Germany to make me fit cause last one week i feel weak. I'm 28 year old. Sincerely
    • Hey there just wanted to warn anyone that has other allergies- these crackers may not be a good choice! I'm mildly sensitive to MSG- I only react if there's a giant amount like in Chinese food or Ramen noodles, etc.  I literally have a to eat TONS of a the offending food before reacting.  Anyway, I was excited to try these Trader Joes pumpkin crackers, kept hearing about them on the radio .... and they're gluten free!  (I have Hashi's).  I ate about 3/4 of the box last night. Woke up this morning with a red itchy face and nasal congestion, headache, anxiety. Hallmark symptoms for me of high MSG intake. (It does say yeast extract on the side but it's pretty far down the list). So if you're sensitive.... stay away! Apparently these particular crackers are loaded with it.
