Roasted Broccoli
0

9 posts in this topic

Ok, so before going gluten-free, I was never a vegetable eater. But once you take most of the sugar out of your diet, things start to taste different. So I've been a veggie eater for the past year and been loving it. However, broccoli was always one of those veggies that I could only eat in very small pieces and usually smothered in something not healthy. A friend of mine posted a recipe for roasted broccoli on facebook and I was intrigued. I love roasting veggies so I thought I would try it. Seriously, could have eaten just this for dinner and been happy (actually had the leftovers for breakfast...yes it's that good). I'm sure many of you veggie eaters already love the stuff, but for those trying to break into the veggie loving world, I thought I would share.

Hope I linked the site correctly.

She said she didn't wash the broccoli because heating would kill the germs. Germs wouldn't be my worry - pesticides would! And even if it were organic broccoli, well, the fertilizer (manure) might have splashed up onto it during a heavy rainstorm. I would DEFINITELY wash it first.

The recipe looked great minus the not washing it first. It actually gave me the idea to make roasted broccoli for dinner since my husband and girls have never had it, well it was a hit. The two year old asked for broccoli for breakfast this morning :)

We roast pretty much every vegetable including broccoli, cauliflower, radishes, parsnips, turnips, green beans, leeks, fennel, kale - you name it, we roast it. Roasting brings out the natural sweetness of the vegetables, especially if they are allowed to caramelize a little in the pan. In fact, we never boil vegetables unless it is required for a certain type of soup or whatever.

One of the best things I ever tasted was corn that was cooked in the fireplace. It was all brown and carmelized and I loved it. Of corse that was many years ago, and now, with my corn intolerance I know I will never try it again. But the broccoli and cauliflower sound good.

That sounds lovely! I have never had it done in a fireplace but we often grill it.

Forgot to mention roasted asparagus and mushrooms.

    • Welcome!   You were smart to think about cross contamination.  Although it is great that there are so many gluten-free options out there, in the beginning it is best to try a whole foods diet, until your son feels a bit better.  The learning curve for the gluten-free diet is steep.  It is better for you to get everything down before letting others feed him.   When I was diagnosed, my hubby had been gluten free for 12 years.  I thought I knew the drill and converted right over to those gluten-free goodies I baked him.  Turned out, like many of us, I had some food inolerances not related to gluten but as a result of gut damage.  So, additives like Xantham gum made me think I was getting glutened, but I was not.  So, again, try to stick to naturally gluten free foods that are less processed for a while.  When you do venture out, I use "find me gluten free" and read the reviews from celiacs (not a person who thinks gluten-free is a way to lose weight! )   Here are some great tips from out Newbie 101 thread:  
    • I have the same problem. Was told it was psoriasis but no treatments worked even injections. I was daignosed celiac in may, and noticed a year ago the palm of my hand would itch intensely then get small blisters. I believe they are both dh. Have been gluten-free since diagnosis but still have issues with both areas. Thankful digestive issues cleared but would love to know how long before they clear up? I hope we both get feed back and best wishes to you!
    • Yes it most certainly could be a false negative, and I would bet you a dozen donuts that it is (gluten free, of course.   )  At the very least you can be sure it is related to gluten.  These gluten rashes take forever to clear up.  I don't know about you, but whenever I start to doubt my gluten intolerance, I just look at my skin, and the old blood stains on my sheets, and I am reassured that it's not all in my head, and I need to avoid gluten as if it were a bucket of battery acid.
    • Hello, My fiance and I are going to Singapore for our honeymoon next year and I was wondering if anyone knew any cafes/restaurants etc that have gluten-free dishes? We previously went two years ago and enjoyed ourselves so much that we definitely wanted to go back our our honeymoon. Catch is I got diagnosed as being gluten intolerant a few months ago, negative for Coeliac though. If I eat gluten I have bad nausea, bloating, diarrhea etc. Not pretty for a honeymoon :-) I am more than happy to eat fruit at breakfast and make do with steamed rice at dinner etc but if anyone has any ideas on anywhere I can safely eat that would be much appreciated. I don't care how much it costs! Also is it possible for me to bring packaged gluten-free food into Singapore from Australia? I am not sure on the rules. Thank you!!
    • Went in and talked to the manager of our pm and asked about the gluten free pizza, and he told me he can't guarantee its 100% gluten free because of the flour in the air from the other crusts being made.  I value the honesty.   The other employee also mentioned changing gloves.   I was thinking wow great, until I walked out and got to thinking about cross contamination from everyone grabbing the toppings out of the same bins and spreading the sauce with the same utensils.    My son was just diagnosed this week so we are new to the whole lifestyle.   So any help or info is greatly appreciated.    Thanks
