Spinach Meatloaf - No Gluten, Casein Or Egg

3 posts in this topic

Here's a link to a meatloaf recipe that avoids gluten, casein, and egg.

It is by Barbara Kafka, who is gluten intolerant. She writes fabulous cooksbooks, and answers questions on her blog. I have Soups, Roasting and Vegetable Love and whole heartedly recommend them all. She also does a lot of microwave cooking.

It is the recipe of the week, so you may have to search the library section later.

I don't have any teff flour, but I hope to try this out soon and I would love to hear from any one who does try it. (The population of people who eat gluten-free/CF/EF must be fairly small?)

I printed it. It sounds good or really awful but its worth a shot. I only have to be gluten-free but don't need to add alot of cheese to stuff because of fat & calories.

Hmmm... I can't really fathom flour or quinoa in a meatloaf. Or soy sauce for that matter. Also can't see cooking it in the microwave. But maybe it will work.

I do a meatloaf with ground beef and plenty of vegetables, including spinach. Just depends on what I have in the house. I used to use ground flax instead of egg, but this last time I tried some baby food squash. I saw this on another board and any way I can get more vegetables into my daughter, the better! I also use gluten-free oats and some V8 or similar juice.

I bake the meatloaf in the oven. The problem I have with it is that it gives off a lot of liquid. At times it has been so much that it dripped to the oven floor. But this last time it did not. Just made it hard to take out of the oven. But after it sits for a while, it absorbs the liquid.

I've been told that perhaps I should cook the vegetables first. I haven't tried that yet.

    • Yes please, that'd be awesome Having a fun time trying to reply on my phone due to broken screen but will be back on tomorrow after results of doctor appointment to get to the bottom of why they've given me seemingly wrong advice re: next steps. Yup I'll admit to pity, anger, frustration and outright fear, been through the mill of emotions in this first week that's for sure. One thing before I go for that; back when I was self-diagnosing I wanted a full thyroid panel (T3, T4 etc.) and also ESR & CRP checks for vasculitis and similar maladies. Now it seems from my reading they can often follow celiac so my worry level of those has gone up a notch, more blood tests ahoy it seems? Main reason for worrying about those is the nearly constant tight / tender head I have at the moment. Top and sides of scalp. Could be the stress tensing the shoulders and occipital muscles at back of head but after the celiac diagnosis being missed I'm fearful of anything else being missed. Did anyone else have this tight head feeling at the start? Feels like the skin is being pulled inwards, sometimes goes down for a few minutes here and there and gets worse when sitting I think. I see the term "brain fog" a lot but luckily don't seem to have too much of that at present, this is more a physical sensation.
    • I don't have a lot of faith in the allergy testing naturalpaths do. I had them done, but really it wasn't very helpful. Foods that were okay on the blood work- I was still having obvious reactions to. Skin testing through an allergist didn't show up food allergies either. I agree the food elimination diet is a better way to go and doesn't cost a bunch of money. I did a whole 30 diet a while back that could have been helpful if the foods I reacted to were corn, dairy,  soy, grains and sugar- but I react to more than that.  I do need to do a major elimination diet- just haven't gotten up the willpower yet.   
    • Quick search gave too many responses to TGI Fridays but none to TGI Fridays Buns (or similar) so... I was talking with my sister-in-law (Gluten Intolerant) and she spoke highly of a pre-packaged bun from Fridays. I was hesitant but she gave me one (apparently you can buy them from the restaurant?) and I tried it. Since I'm slow to react I won't know about gluten for a bit but I can definitely say it is the closest to "real" I've had in years! Spongy, doesn't crumble while eating a sandwich and tastes good. Color me impressed! I tried to determine the manufacturer or if Fridays actually makes them but I can't locate anything worth pursuing. Anyone have information on this? Thanks in advance.
    • Thanks cyclinglady! I will!
    • You could ask the allergist to give you a starting point for an elimination diet. You would start out with 5 or so foods and then add in one new food a week to see if you react. If you react you of course drop that food. It is a bit of a pain as everything has to be basically single ingredient to start.  My allergist felt that was the best way to go and more accurate than blood testing.
