Turkey Stuffing
0

4 posts in this topic

My formerly skeptical mom, has witnessed Logan having a reaction a couple of times and is now convinced I am not just fanatical about what he eats, just for the sake of having a "cause".

With family get-together, holiday meals in mind, she asked me if turkey dressing would turn out edible for the rest of the gluten-loving family members if we made it out of rice bread, so that Logan could enjoy the stuffing with the rest of us. I said I hadn't tried it yet myself, so I did not know, but that I would pose the question on here to see if anyone else has ventured there.

I recently tried adding rice-pasta noodles to a homemade soup in the crock pot, but instead of having a soup with pasta in it at mealtime, we wound up with a thickened-stew, with NO hint of pasta. (It had disintegrated and became a mere thickener) oops

So how about it? Does anyone know whether non-celiacs would be able to palate a turkey stuffing made with rice bread? Has anyone ever tried it? Or would this be a major flop?

I thnk it would work, but haven't tried it myself. Last Thanksgiving, I made rice stuffing (a wild rice/brown rice mix, with onions and mushrooms) for the "stuffing". There are a lot of rice-based stuffing recipes (that are naturally gluten free) out there that I'm sure the family would love.

Last Thanksgiving I made stuffing that was very good! I didn't stuff the turkey with it though. I cubed the Featherlight Rice Bread and mixed them with butter and garlic salt. I toasted them in a 200 degree oven and stirred every now and then until they were crunchy. Then I mixed them with chicken broth, more butter and a mixture of sauteed onions, garlic, salt, pepper and poultry seasoning. Then I baked that for about 30 min. at 350. Yum!

Tarnalberry,

I have made some stuffing with rice, for Logan which he liked. I thought it was good too, but there are those in my family who are stuck on tradition, so to speak, very stuck in their ways, and just kind of looked at it.

Jenni,

Did anyone who is NOT a gluten-free convert eat the stuffing you made? It sounds delicious, but did any of the skeptics enjoy it with you?

Thanks for the recipe, I will definitely try it at home with my own hubby and children who are used to sampling my gluten-free experiments. I guess then we can make a judgement call as to whether the extended bunch will accept it as a reasonable alternative. I can't think of anything worse for my little son's feelings than if they got a mouthful of it and started making all kinds of negative comments or even politely refused to eat it. He would question why he has to eat "crap that normal people won't even touch!" when in fact it could be delicious, but slightly different textured than the average joe is used to.

Does it have to be the featherlight bread that I use, or would any rice bread work?

Thanks for your response.

    • gluten intolerance, dairy intolerance and fructose
      Look into The Paleo Approach by Sara Ballentyne, PhD.  Great resource and will probably answer your questions.  I have the same problem. You have to really read labels.  The only coconut milk I can use is an organic canned one.  Others have too many ingredients that are problematic.  For now, stay with meat and vegetables as someone else has recommended.  If rice works for you, great.  If not, winter squash is good.  The diet change is overwhelming at first but then it starts to make sense.  The one good thing about an intolerance versus allergy is the possibility of someday being able to add it back into your diet once your gut has healed.
    • Anyone experience brain fog like this?
      I went gluten free about a month ago, and was finally feeling *great* last week when wham -- my well-meaning Dad cooked me dinner and forgot to check the ingredients on the fish sauce he used. The upside of being glutened for the first time is that, after a couple weeks of feeling good, I feel like I can discern the symptoms a lot better now. I've noticed that the worst part, aside from the nausea, is the "brain fog," but I'm curious if my experience of brain fog is the same as or similar to what other people are feeling. For me, it becomes almost physically painful to concentrate on anything. If I try to read a book, or watch a TV show, it makes me feel dizzy, overwhelmed, and nauseous. For a couple days, I feel like all I can do is try to stay still and do as little as possible while I wait it out. It feels similar to anxiety, but not quite the same, and none of the usual tricks for getting through a panic attack help. Do any of you experience brain fog in a similar way? Where it basically makes you feel sick to try and concentrate on anything, even fun and relaxing things?
    • gluten intolerance, dairy intolerance and fructose
      I've never gone fructose free so can't help much with that.  But any fruit is probably a problem.  If you are serious about avoiding fructose you could do a search and print out a list of foods to avoid. http://www.mayoclinic.org/fructose-intolerance/expert-answers/faq-20058097 Yes, it very possible to have multiple food intolerance issues.  Many people have multiple food intolerances.  It might help to avoid any foods that are sweet for now.  Meat and most veggies are probably the way to go.  You may want to get some jerky to eat for snacks.  Peanuts might be ok but you'll need to verify that.  Boiled eggs are probably ok.  Most soda would be a no-no.

      Hi Courtney, You asked about dairy, and RMJ got it right.  Celiac disease destroys the villi lining of the small intestine.  Those villi make the lactase enzyme we need to digest dairy. Sigmoid colon thickening could be related to diverticulitis.  Which according to Wiki is a fairly common condition but doesn't always cause symptoms.  Diverticulitis can cause a problem if there is an infection though.  The sigmoid colon is part of the large intestine.  Celiac disease affects the small intestine, so celiac isn't likely involved.  I am not sure why the resident suggested celiac, unless there were some other reason to do so.  Possibly the weight loss, which could be explained by celiac disease.  Thickening of the colon may happen with Crohn's disease also.  And I'm not sure about UCD (ulcerative colitis disease) but it might cause that also, not sure https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Diverticulosis https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sigmoid_colon http://biology-pages.info/G/GITract.html#pancreas http://www.ccfa.org/what-are-crohns-and-colitis/what-is-ulcerative-colitis/
    • So I've been glutened....
      Hi JMG, Since it's easy, and always fun, I'd blame your sister. That's what I do.  But seriously, if it's an ongoing problem, rather than an isolated incident stick with your first guess.  Then test it.   So get rid of the oat bread or the sister (her food) or anything that is a consistent part of your diet and you suspect could be the problem.  Of course processed foods are the most likely issue always. It's easy enough to drop back to a very few foods for a few days and see if things improve.  Eating with celiac isn't about having the most exciting diet, it's about eating a medically safe diet.  So it can be boring sometimes.  That's ok, being in pain is exciting but not so fun.   Boring is fine. You might ask your sister what brands of flour she used, and other ingredients.  Then check on those products for possible gluten issues.  If they turn out to be possible problems, make a note of it so you can avoid them in the future. My own sister has been gluten-free for years but she has made me sick several times with her "creations".  It really is best to trust your own cooking and nobody else's for at least 6 months as you are getting used to the diet and healing.  Then slowly branch out and add things in maybe 1 new item in a week.  Slow and controlled diet changes are the way to go.  Boring but safe.  Happy but slow.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
      https://youtu.be/IU6jVEwpjnE Thank You,
