    They're easy to make, easy to cook, and they add a savory twist to an otherwise mundane meal. I like to make them with Rice Chex, but you can also use your favorite gluten-free breadcrumbs.

    Top them with a dash of parmesan or Romano cheese, and serve with meat dish like pork or lamb chops, and a salad, for a delicious meal.

    2 cups cooked or canned white beans, drained (set aside a few tablespoons of liquid from drained beans)
    ½ cup onion, chopped fine
    ⅓ cup crushed Rice Chex, or fresh gluten-free breadcrumbs
    ¼ cup dried or fresh parsley, minced
    ½ teaspoon of black pepper
    1 egg, lightly beaten
    2 strips of crisp bacon, chopped fine
    1 to 1½ tablespoon of hot sauce (optional)
    1 cup peanut oil (use other oil as needed)
    parmesan or Romano cheese, grated (as desired)
    salt to taste

    Directions:
    Heat oven to 200°F.

    Mash the beans, but leave them lumpy. Add bean water as necessary to even out the paste.

    Combine beans, bacon, onion, egg, parsley, salt, and pepper. Mix well.

    Add crumbs (I like Rice Chex best, but it's important to crush them well) or cornmeal little by little until you can shape the mixture by hand.

    Shape the mixture into patties, and cook in lightly oiled pan, 3-5 minutes each side or until golden brown on each side.

    Warm patties at 200°F until they are all cooked. Top with grated parmesan or Romano cheese and serve.

    Your recipes are great. I am going to try this one as I have been dying for something fried - like a potato pancake-but this is close cause I love beans!

    These would be good with some corn added too.

    ½ cup garbanzo bean flour
    ½ cup white rice flour
    1 cup yellow cornmeal
    1 teaspoon xanthan gum
    1 tablespoon sugar
    1 teaspoon gluten-free baking powder
    1 teaspoon salt
    2 eggs, beaten
    2 cups milk substitute (use 1 ½ cups if using Rice Milk)
    4 packages hot dogs Cut hot dogs into bite size pieces (4 per dog) and mix everything except hot dogs until smooth. Dip hot dogs in batter and deep fry until golden brown.
    Tip: If you are having trouble getting the batter to stick, try coating the dogs in arrowroot powder first
    Lay them out on a cookie sheet and then put them in the freezer. After they are frozen pour them into a large freezer bag or container. By freezing them first on a cookie sheet, they wont stick together and you can just pour out how many you need at a time.

    This recipe comes to us from “Mtndog” in the Celiac Disease Message Board.
    Ingredients:
    4 large skinless boneless chicken breast halves
    6 teaspoons chopped marjoram, divided
    2 tablespoons butter, divided
    2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
    12 ounces assorted wild mushrooms (I used steak cut baby bella), thickly sliced
    1 cup sliced shallots (about 5)
    ¾ dry white wine
    ½ cup light cream
    3 tablespoons dry Marsala
    Directions:
    Sprinkle chicken breasts with salt and pepper, then 2 teaspoons marjoram. Melt 1 tablespoon butter with 1 tablespoon oil in large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken to skillet and sauté until just cooked through, about 7 minutes per side.
    Melt remaining 1 tablespoon butter with1 tablespoon oil in same skillet. Add mushrooms, shallots, and 2 teaspoons marjoram. Sauté until mushrooms are brown and tender, about 6 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
    Combine wine, cream, Marsala, and remaining 2 teaspoons marjoram in same skillet; boil until thickened and reduced to ½cup, about 5 minutes. Season sauce with salt and pepper.
    Divide among 4 plates.

    Talk about classic. It doesn't get much more classic than pea soup. I imagine some versions of pea or bean soup must go back hundreds of years, or more. Pea soup is simple, hearty, and delicious. This version of classic split pea soup is a satisfying meal that's gluten-free, low in fat and high in flavor and nutrition. This recipe makes enough soup to serve about four to six people.
    Ingredients:
    2 teaspoon vegetable oil or bacon grease
    1 cup chopped onion
    2 celery stalks, chopped
    1 large leek, chopped
    1 large carrot, chopped
    1 large clove of garlic, halved
    1 pound dried split peas
    2 meaty ham hocks, rinsed
    salt and pepper to taste
    2 teaspoons lemon juice (optional)
    Directions:
    For this recipe, you may use either soaked or un-soaked peas. Just remember that un-soaked peas take about 1 to 2 hours of simmering, depending on how solid you want them, while soaked peas take about 40 minutes.
    In a medium pot, saute onions in oil or bacon grease. Reduce heat to low, and add split peas, and ham hocks. Add enough water to cover ingredients, and season with salt and pepper.
    Skim the foam off the top of the soup, and continue for several minutes until foam stops forming.
    Cover, and simmer until the peas are soft, or until they have broken down fully, up to 2 hours, stirring occasionally, so they don't stick to the pan.
    Peas soak up a lot of water, so, check during the simmer to see if water has evaporated. Add more water as needed to achieve desired texture. Remember, the peas only need to be cooked until tender. Those who like a smoother, creamier texture can cook them longer until they break down.
    When the peas are soft and the veggies are cooked, stir in your favorite seasonings and keep on tasting until it's just right.  Add salt, freshly cracked black pepper, and lemon juice.
    Remember, when adding lemon juice, or anything acidic, do so at the very end of cooking to avoid hard, underdone peas. Once the soup has cooked just short of desired consistency, remove from heat, and let stand so it will thicken. Remove ham hocks. If desired, strip away meat, chop and add to soup.
    Once the soup has thickened, it may be necessary to return it to the heat to warm briefly before serving.

    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.
