    In Italy a few years back, I noticed an abundance of menu items featuring delicious, locally raised veal. Local, humanely raised and processed veal can be a a delicious addition to the table, and makes a nice variation from the usual chicken, beef, or pork offerings.
    The rich, delicious sauce of tomato and white wine creates a moist, tender, gluten-free veal stew that is sure to liven up your table this fall and winter. Just don't invite any vegans that night.
    6 tablespoons olive oil
    2 large onions, chopped
    4 cloves garlic, minced
    3 pounds veal, trimmed and cubed
    1½ cups tomato sauce
    3/4 cup white wine
    salt and pepper to taste
    In a large pot, heat oil over medium heat. Add onions and garlic; cook and stir until onion is tender. Add meat to the pot, and brown evenly.
    Stir in tomato sauce and white wine. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low, cover and simmer for 1½ hours, or until tender.
    Serve over rice, potatoes, or gluten-free pasta.
    Makes 6 servings.

    One of the best things I ever ate was the green-chile stew I had at a restaurant in Taos, New Mexico the name of which I don't remember. Still the stew of local, fresh roasted green chiles, squash, corn and pork stays in my mind to this day.
    Anyone who has ever spent time in New Mexico can likely attest to the New Mexicans' love affair with the green chile. Anyone who's tried the fresh, green chile stew has likely thought about having more one day. They make green chile stew all over New Mexico, and they make it many different ways, but it always comes out delicious.
    If you can't get fresh roasted green chiles, then try to find frozen diced chiles at your local market. This recipe makes enough to serve eight people.
    3 tablespoons olive oil
    2 pounds cubed pork stew meat
    1½ large yellow onion, diced
    5 cloves garlic, minced
    3 cups chopped, roasted green chiles
    1 can diced tomatoes with juice (14.5 ounces)
    2 yellow squash, cut in one-inch cubes
    1 cup fresh steamed, or frozen corn kernels
    1 can pinto beans, drained (16 ounces)
    1½ cups tomatillo salsa
    6 cups chicken broth
    1 teaspoon dried oregano
    ½ teaspoon chili powder
    ½ teaspoon paprika
    ¼ teaspoon ground clove
    salt and pepper to taste
    Heat the olive oil in a large soup pot over medium-high heat. Season the pork with salt, pepper, paprika and chile powder, and add to pot. Cook until well-browned on all sides.
    Remove browned pork and set aside. Lower heat to medium, and stir in the onion, garlic and squash. Cook and stir until the onion is soft and clear.
    Return the pork to the pot, and stir in the green chiles, corn, diced tomatoes with juice, tomatillo salsa, and chicken broth. Add oregano and ground clove.
    Raise heat to medium-high, and quickly bring a boil, then reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer 30 minutes.
    After 30 minutes, spoon off 2 cups of the soup, making certain it contains NO pork pieces, and pour into a blender.
    Hold down the lid of the blender with a folded kitchen towel, and carefully start the blender, using a few quick pulses to get the soup moving before leaving it on to puree. Puree until smooth, then pour back into the cooking pot.
    This is a good way to thicken the stew and eliminate some of the chunkier pieces.
    Continue to simmer at least 30 minutes to one hour more, stirring occasionally, until the pork is very tender.
    Serve with rice, beans and corn tortillas.

    For many people, October means Oktoberfest and, in addition to drinking beer, Oktoberfest means eating sausage. For many, that can also mean ending up with some extra bratwurst or sausages in the fridge.
    This recipe is an easy, nutritious and delicious way to use up any extra bratwurst or sausage. The result is a tasty, easy to prepare stew that uses simple ingredients. All you need is some cabbage, carrots, celery, onions, some basic spices, a couple cans of beans, and a little chicken broth and you're ready to go.
    This recipe makes enough stew to serve six to eight adults.
    1 quart chicken broth
    4 medium carrots, sliced thick
    3 celery stalks, sliced thick
    2 medium onions, chopped
    1 clove garlic, minced
    ½ teaspoon dried thyme
    ½ teaspoon dried basil
    ½ teaspoon salt
    3 cups cabbage, chopped
    2 cans great northern beans, or cannellini, rinsed and drained  (15.5 ounces)
    5 fully cooked gluten-free bratwurst links, cut into 3/4 inch slices
    First, make sure the bratwurst or sausage in question is gluten-free. Niman Ranch and Johnsonville make gluten-free brats, and a number of sausage makers sell fresh gluten-free bratwurst online.
    Second, bratwurst is the best sausage to use in this dish, though you can use practically any sausage you like.
    In a large saucepan, combine the broth, carrots, celery, onion and seasonings.
    Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 15 minutes.
    Add the cabbage; cover and cook for 10 minutes.
    Stir in beans and bratwurst, and simmer 5 more minutes until heated.
