    Brown Butter Mashed Potatoes (Gluten-Free)


    Jefferson Adams

    Every so often, chefs rediscover the delights of browning butter and putting it on things to eat. Brown butter potatoes are all the rage this season, and a number of magazines have featured recipes.

    Ingredients:

    • 3½ pounds red or yukon gold potatoes, peeled and cut into large chunks
    • 1 stick plus 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
    • 1 cup milk
    • ¼ cup crème fraîche
    • salt 

    In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook the potatoes over moderate heat until tender, about 25 minutes. Drain well. Return the potatoes to the pot and cook over high heat for 1 minute to dry them out slightly. Pass the potatoes through a ricer and return them to the pot.

    In a small saucepan, cook the butter over moderate heat until the milk solids turn dark golden, about 4 minutes. Add all but 2 tablespoons of the brown butter to the potatoes along with the milk and crème fraîche and stir well. Season with salt and stir over moderate heat until hot. Drizzle the remaining brown butter over the potatoes and serve.

    MAKE AHEAD The mashed potatoes can be refrigerated overnight and rewarmed in the oven, covered with foil.

    Gluten-Free Fathers Day Meal

    Studies show that the number one most popular meal for men is BBQribs. Julia Child provided the following rib recipe and it is naturally gluten-free. In fact, all of the following recipes are all naturally gluten-free, but be sure to use only gluten-free ingredients and spices. 
    BBQ Ribs Baked Beans French Bread Avocado Tomato Salad Berry Cobbler
    Julia Child's Broiled or Barbecued Spare Ribs (Gluten-Free)
    Serving Size : 6
    3 whole spare ribs -- making 12 sets of 3-rib portions Salt and spice marinade - (Either 1 ½ T. salt and 1 tsp of your own spice Marinate or use the following):
    Spice Marinade-
    1 1/2 T. salt 1/2 tsp. Ground allspice 1/2 tsp. finely ground pepper Special house BBQ sauce -
    1/2 cup fresh peanut oil 1/2 cup wheat-free soy sauce 1/2 cup honey 1 tsp thyme or sage 1 tsp paprika 1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper or chili powder -- or to taste 2 Tbs distilled vinegar
    Directions
    1. Trimming the ribs. Remove the membrane from the under side of the ribs. Slash between every 2 or 3 ribs at the large side to make for easy cutting into portions after cooking.
    2. Preliminary salt & spice marinade. Mix the spices & salt in a small bowl; rub the mixture into both sides of the ribs. Cover and refrigerate. Leave at least 1/2 hour, but overnight is more effective.
    3. Special house BBQ sauce. Mix the ingredients for the sauce in a bowl, and paint a coating on both sides of the ribs. Set the ribs, curved side down, in a roasting pan or pans. Reserve the rest of the sauce.
    *Ahead-of-time note: The recipe may be prepared a day in advance to this point. Cover ribs and sauce, and refrigerate them.
    4. Pre-barbecue roasting - 40 minutes a 375 F. Baste both sides lightly with another coat of sauce, and roast 20 min. on each side in the preheated oven - this starts the cooking and eliminates some of the excess fat.
    *Ahead-of-time note: May be done somewhat in advance; let cool, then over and refrigerate.
    5. Final cooking. Either on the barbecue. Have your coals just right - a hot gray, not a burning red. Basting the ribs with the sauce, turn them over the coals for 15-20 minutes, until a nice crusty brown.
    Or
    5.Broil under the broiler. Instead of finishing on the BBQ, turn the ribs under a moderate broiler for 15 - 20 min. basting frequently with the sauce.Beans are inexpensive and full of healthy proteins, and they go very well with ribs. The following recipe can be modified to be made vegetarian, just leave out the bacon.

    Baked Beans Gluten-Free
    Ingredients
    1 pound bacon
    2 (28 ounce) cans baked beans
    1 (12 ounce) bottle chili sauce

    3.In a large bowl combine beans, chili sauce, onion, brown sugar and bacon. Pour into a 9x13 inch casserole dish.
    4.Bake in preheated oven for 45 minutes to 1 hour. French bread is something that most gluten-sensitive suffers live without.

    If you're having a craving for something fried, delicious, original and gluten-free to liven up your dinner, then consider these bacon and white bean croquettes.
    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.
    Ingredients:
    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.

    Celiac.com 08/15/2013 - Potatoes are such simple, lovely, delightful things. They can be made so many different ways, and can be used to anchor so many meals. I don't usually grill them on skewers, so that makes this recipe even more fun.
    These skewered potatoes make a nice complement to numerous grilled foods. They pair well with most meats and fishes, and are a nice way to round out any good grilling session.
    Make it more fun by getting as many small, differently colored potatoes you can and making colorful skewers. The different flavors of the various potatoes will enliven the
    Ingredients:
    1-2 dozen small potatoes, assorted colors, quartered 2-4 cloves garlic, minced 1-2 tablespoons olive oil 1 teaspoon onion powder ½ to 1 teaspoon fresh thyme, minced 10-12 wooden skewers, soaked Kosher salt and pepper to taste Directions:
    Wash and dry potatoes.
    Place 4 or 5 potatoes on each skewer. Place 2-4 skewers each on a sheet of foil. Brush with olive oil, and minced garlic. Add Onion powder, salt, and pepper. 
    Note: If you can't get small potatoes, cut larger ones into about one-inch chunks.
    Fold foil carefully, so that potatoes are enclosed, and the dull end of the skewers pokes out the end of the foil. Pinch foil around the ends.
    Place on grill for 20 minutes or so, until potatoes are cooked through. Remove from grill. Remove foil and serve with other meat kebabs.

    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.
