    This recipe comes to us from Karen Hutton.

    Although it asks for a crust I just pour the pumpkin-mixture into a glass pie dish and cool. It slices out just like a regular piece of pie.

    And remember to use gluten-free products.

    Pumpkin Chiffon Pie

    1 envelope (l tablespoon) unflavored gelatin
    ¼ cup cold water
    3 eggs, separated
    ½ cup firmly packed brown sugar
    1 ¼ cups solid pack canned pumpkin
    ½ cup milk
    ½ teaspoon ground ginger
    ¾ teaspoon ground cinnamon
    ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
    ½ teaspoon ground allspice
    ½ cup granulated sugar
    1 - 9 or 10 inch baked pie shell

    Soften gelatin in cold water. Combine together in heavy saucepan the egg yolks, brown sugar, pumpkin, milk, salt, and spices. Cook over low heat, stirring continually until thick and smooth. Remove from heat. Stir in gelatin until dissolved. Chill until mixture thickens to consistency of unbeaten egg white. Place the egg whites in small bowl until very foamy.

    Add granulated sugar, l tablespoonful at a time, continuing to beat until stiff peaks form. Transfer to large mixer bowl. Mixing on low add pumpkin mixture slowly, mixing for l minute or until well blended, moving bowl control back and forth frequently during mixing. Stop mixer; scrape sides of bowl and beater. Pour mixture into baked pie shell. If desired, garnish with pecan halves. Chill for 2 hours or longer before serving.

  • About Me

    In 1994 I was diagnosed with celiac disease, which led me to create Celiac.com in 1995. I created this site for a single purpose: To help as many people as possible with celiac disease get diagnosed so they can begin to live happy, healthy gluten-free lives. Celiac.com was the first site on the Internet dedicated solely to celiac disease. In 1998 I founded The Gluten-Free Mall, Your Special Diet Superstore!, and I am the co-author of the book Cereal Killers, and founder and publisher of Journal of Gluten Sensitivity.

    This recipe comes to us from Betty Doubravsky. My wife entered this in the Dolores County Fair here in Colorado and won three ribbons. - James
    Pie Pastry:
    1 ½ cup sifted gluten-free flour *
    ½ cup soy flour
    2 teaspoons xanthan gum
    ¼ - ½ teaspoon salt
    2/3 cup Crisco or other shortening
    5-7 tablespoons COLD water (I use 7)
    Sift flours, xanthan and salt; cut in shortening until likeness of cornmeal; sprinkle in water and mix with a fork until dough forms a ball. Divide dough in half, rolling each half between sheets of wax paper until dough is about the thickness of 1/8 inch. Place into pie plate, fill with favorite gluten-free filling (fresh currants are not that easy to find) and bake as directed.
    * gluten-free flour 6 parts rice flour
    2 parts potato starch flour
    1 part tapioca starch flour
    Fresh Black Currant Filling:
    3 Cups fresh Currants (heaping), crush ½ cup.
    Mix the crushed berries with 1 ½ cup sugar, 3 tablespoons of quick-cooking tapioca and ¼ teaspoon salt. Cook and stir until bubbly; Cook 2 minutes more. Add remaining whole berries, stir in ½ to 1 teaspoon of grated orange peel and ½-2/3 cup of broken walnuts. Fill pastry with the filling and dot with 2 tablespoons of butter, cover with top pastry making slits for steam to escape. Bake at 400 for about 35 minutes.

    Fresh strawberry pie always reminds me of summer. Whenever I go into a grocery store and see those fresh strawberry pies sitting in the pastry case, I drool and of course, I keep walking. Finding a gluten-free strawberry pie is not easy, but the following recipe will make up for that as it is very easy to make. This strawberry pie recipe is a cinch to prepare, and I guarantee it will taste better than anything you can find at the store.
    Fresh Strawberry Pie (Gluten-Free)
    Serves 7
    Gluten-Free Pie Crust Ingredients:

    1 ½ cup white rice flour ½ cup tapioca flour 1 teaspoon baking powder 1 teaspoon xanthan gum 1 cup melted margarine ½ cup ricotta cheese ½ cup sour cream Directions to make the crust:
    Sift together the dry ingredients.  Mix together the margarine, cheese, and sour cream.  Stir in dry ingredients. Chill for at least 2 hours, or until dough is easy to handle.  Roll out dough on rice-floured plastic as it may be sticky. Note: Using a second piece of plastic keeps it from sticking to the rolling pin. Transfer to your pie pan/plate and flute the edges. Note: The edges tend to cook fast. To avoid burning the pie crust, gentlly wrap the edges in foil before baking. Bake at 400 degrees for 20-25 minutes. Remove foil and allow pie crust to cool before filling.
     Fresh Strawerry Filling:
    1 quart fresh, organic strawberries ½ cup sugar ½ teaspoon salt ½ cup water 1 ½ tablespoon  cornstarch 1 8 ounce package cream cheese, softened 3 tablespoons sugar To make the filling:
    In a sauce pan, put 1 cup sliced berries, ½ cup sugar, salt, and ¼ cup water. Bring to boil. Cook 3 minutes. Remove from heat. Mix cornstarch and remaining water. Add to sauce pan.  Return to heat. Stir until thickened, about 2 minutes. Allow to cool. Mix into remaining fresh berries. Assembly:
    In a separate bowl, mix cream cheese and sugar.
    Spread cream cheese mixture on the bottom of the cooked, cooled pie crust.
    Add berry mixture on top.
    Chill in the refrigerator until firm. Happy Summer!

    Celiac.com 06/23/2018 - If you’re looking for a great gluten-free Mexican-style favorite that is sure to be a big hit at dinner or at your next potluck, try these green chili enchiladas with roasted cauliflower. The recipe calls for chicken, but they are just as delicious when made vegetarian using just the roasted cauliflower. Either way, these enchiladas will disappear fast. Roasted cauliflower gives these green chili chicken enchiladas a deep, smokey flavor that diners are sure to love.
    Ingredients:
    2 cans gluten-free green chili enchilada sauce (I use Hatch brand) 1 small head cauliflower, roasted and chopped 6 ounces chicken meat, browned ½ cup cotija cheese, crumbled ½ cup queso fresco, diced 1 medium onion, diced ⅓ cup green onions, minced ¼ cup radishes, sliced 1 tablespoon cooking oil 1 cup chopped cabbage, for serving ½ cup sliced cherry or grape tomatoes, for serving ¼ cup cilantro, chopped 1 dozen fresh corn tortillas  ⅔ cup oil, for softening tortillas 1 large avocado, cut into small chunks Note: For a tasty vegetarian version, just omit the chicken, double the roasted cauliflower, and prepare according to directions.
    Directions:
    Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a cast iron or ovenproof pan until hot.
    Add chicken and brown lightly on both sides. 
    Remove chicken to paper towels to cool.
     
    Cut cauliflower into small pieces and place in the oiled pan.
    Roast in oven at 350F until browned on both sides.
    Remove from the oven when tender. 
    Allow roasted cauliflower to cool.
    Chop cauliflower, or break into small pieces and set aside.
    Chop cooled chicken and set aside.
    Heat 1 inch of cooking oil in a small frying pan.
    When oil is hot, use a spatula to submerge a tortilla in the oil and leave only long enough to soften, about 10 seconds or so. 
    Remove soft tortilla to a paper towel and repeat with remaining tortillas.
    Pour enough enchilada sauce to coat the bottom of a large casserole pan.
    Dunk a tortilla into the sauce and cover both sides. Add more sauce as needed.
    Fill each tortilla with bits of chicken, cauliflower, onion, and queso fresco, and roll into shape.
    When pan is full of rolled enchiladas, top with remaining sauce.
    Cook at 350F until sauce bubbles.
    Remove and top with fresh cotija cheese and scallions.
    Serve with rice, beans, and cabbage, and garnish with avocado, cilantro, and sliced grape tomatoes.

    Celiac.com 06/22/2018 - The rise of food allergies means that many people are avoiding gluten in recent times. In fact, the number of Americans who have stopped eating gluten has tripled in eight years between 2009 and 2017.
    Whatever your rationale for avoiding gluten, whether its celiac disease, a sensitivity to the protein, or any other reason, it can be really hard to find suitable places to eat out. When you’re on holiday in a new and unknown environment, this can be near impossible. As awareness of celiac disease grows around the world, however, more and more cities are opening their doors to gluten-free lifestyles, none more so than the 10 locations on the list below.
    Perhaps unsurprisingly, the U.S is a hotbed of gluten-free options, with four cities making the top 10, as well as the Hawaiian island of Maui. Chicago, in particular, is a real haven of gluten-free fare, with 240 coeliac-safe eateries throughout this huge city. The super hip city of Portland also ranks highly on this list, with the capital of counterculture rich in gluten-free cuisine, with San Francisco and Denver also included. Outside of the states, several prominent European capitals also rank very highly on the list, including Prague, the picturesque and historic capital of the Czech Republic, which boasts the best-reviewed restaurants on this list.
    The Irish capital of Dublin, meanwhile, has the most gluten-free establishments, with a huge 330 to choose from, while Amsterdam and Barcelona also feature prominently thanks to their variety of top-notch gluten-free fodder.
    Finally, a special mention must go to Auckland, the sole representative of Australasia in this list, with the largest city in New Zealand rounding out the top 10 thanks to its 180 coeliacsafe eateries.
    The full top ten gluten-free cities are shown in the graphic below:

    Celiac.com 06/21/2018 - Would you buy a house advertised as ‘gluten-free’? Yes, there really is such a house for sale. 
    It seems a Phoenix realtor Mike D’Elena is hoping that his trendy claim will catch the eye of a buyer hungry to avoid gluten, or, at least one with a sense of humor. D’Elena said he crafted the ads as a way to “be funny and to draw attention.” The idea, D’Elena said, is to “make it memorable.” 
    Though D’Elena’s marketing seeks to capitalizes on the gluten-free trend, he knows Celiac disease is a serious health issue for some people. “[W]e’re not here to offend anybody….this is just something we're just trying to do to draw attention and do what's best for our clients," he said. 
    Still, the signs seem to be working. D'elena had fielded six offers within a few days of listing the west Phoenix home.
    "Buying can sometimes be the most stressful thing you do in your entire life so why not have some fun with it," he said. 
    What do you think? Clever? Funny?

    Celiac.com 06/20/2018 - Currently, the only way to manage celiac disease is to eliminate gluten from the diet. That could be set to change as clinical trials begin in Australia for a new vaccine that aims to switch off the immune response to gluten. 
    The trials are set to begin at Australia’s University of the Sunshine Coast Clinical Trials Centre. The vaccine is designed to allow people with celiac disease to consume gluten with no adverse effects. A successful vaccine could be the beginning of the end for the gluten-free diet as the only currently viable treatment for celiac disease. That could be a massive breakthrough for people with celiac disease.
    USC’s Clinical Trials Centre Director Lucas Litewka said trial participants would receive an injection of the vaccine twice a week for seven weeks. The trials will be conducted alongside gastroenterologist Dr. James Daveson, who called the vaccine “a very exciting potential new therapy that has been undergoing clinical trials for several years now.”
    Dr. Daveson said the investigational vaccine might potentially restore gluten tolerance to people with celiac disease.The trial is open to adults between the ages of 18 and 70 who have clinically diagnosed celiac disease, and have followed a strict gluten-free diet for at least 12 months. Anyone interested in participating can go to www.joinourtrials.com.
