    I tried this recipe and it did not work out for me. In my opinion, it was like having pasta in an egg quiche. I would not make this again. I was disappointed in how it came out since the price of most gluten-free pasta is so expensive.

    My family loved it and it reheated for leftovers really well.There are not many gluten free foods that we can all agree on. Also it was very easy to make.

    This recipe comes to us from Valerie Wells.
    Ingredients:
    1 pound lean ground beef
    1 small onion, chopped
    2 cloves garlic, minced
    1 ribs celery, chopped
    1 - 14.5 oz. can diced tomatoes
    1 cup short grain brown rice
    1 ½ cup water
    ¼ teaspoon salt
    Directions:
    Preheat oven to 350F. Brown beef in heavy flame proof Dutch oven. Stir in onions, garlic and celery and sauté for a few minutes. Add remaining ingredients and bring to boil. Cover and move to oven for 45 minutes.
    You can probably make this with any kind of rice; just use the amount of water required for the type of rice youre using. Also, if you make it with white rice, reduce the cooking time in the oven to about 30 minutes.

    This recipe comes to us from “tarnalberry” in the Celiac Disease Message Board.
    Ingredients:
    1 cup Lundberg Farms Wild Blend Rice (you can substitute brown rice, or your own mix of brown and wild rice, but this mix works best of the variations Ive tried so far, definitely do not do all white rice)
    1/3 cup arborio rice (risotto)
    3 medium carrots
    3 stalks celery
    1 medium onion
    2/3 pound mushrooms (chanterelles are very good here, as are creminis (or portabellas), plain white wouldnt be the same)
    3 tablespoons olive oil
    4 cups (or more) chicken or vegetable broth
    2 teaspoons Italian spices (or ½ teaspoon each basil, oregano, thyme, rosemary)
    1 teaspoon salt
    ½ teaspoon ground sage
    ¼ teaspoon majoram
    pinch cumin (optional)
    Directions:
    Finely dice the carrots, celery, onion, and mushroom. Heat a 6 quart (or so) pot on the stove, then add the olive oil. Add the carrots, celery, onion, and mushroom, and stir to coat. Continue cooking, on medium high heat, stirring often, until the onions turn translucent. Add the rices, and stir to coat further, for a minute or so. Add enough broth to just cover the ingredients, and turn down to a simmer. Continue to cook just like risotto - stirring almost continuously (no less than every three or four minutes), and adding broth, a half cup at a time. After 30 minutes, add the spices. Continue adding broth, even after the four cups, if the rice is not done, but is very thick and needs more liquid to keep from burning at the bottom. And keep stirring! When the rice is cooked through, turn off the heat and serve.

    Cooking with booze is one of the great culinary rites of the holiday season. Apples sauteed with butter, sugar, and cinnamon and polished off with a splash of bourbon, rum, or liqueur are one of the easiest, tastiest gluten-free holidays deserts to make.
    Start by finding yourself some good, crisp, tart apples. I prefer Granny Smiths, Braeburns, Galas, or Pippins, as their tartness combines well with the sweetness of the sauce. But, I've had success with Golden Delicious and Jonathans, as well.  Remember, the alcohol boils off during cooking, so this desert treat is safe for kids. I recommend serving these delicious treats with a big helping of vanilla ice cream. This particular recipe makes enough apples to serve about a dozen people.
    Ingredients:
    1/2 stick of salted butter
    12 granny smith apples, peeled, cored, and cut into wedges
    1 1/2 cups white sugar
    1 teaspoon salt
    1 cup brown sugar
    2 tablespoons cinnamon
    1/2 teaspoon nutmeg (optional)
    1 tablespoon vanilla
    1/2 cup bourbon, dark rum, or liqueur such as Amaretto, Frangelico, or Grand Marnier

    Preparation:
    Wash, core and peel apples.
    Slice apples into 1/2 to 1/4-inch wedges
    Soak apples in booze for 30 minutes. Pour off booze, reserving 1/2 cup.
    In a medium bowl, mix sugar, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg, if desired.
    Melt butter in a frying pan over medium heat.
    Add apples and cook slowly, allowing them to brown slightly.
    When apples have softened and browned, add sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg and mix well.
    Pour in vanilla and just enough booze to coat the apples, up to 1/2 cup.
    Stir well and heat until apple mixture is juicy and the juice boils.
    Reduce heat to low and simmer about 10-20 minutes until apples are tender, and most of the liquid evaporates. Stir as needed to avoid sticking and burning.
    Serve warm with vanilla ice cream.

    The first rule about cooking with wine to only use a bottle you would also be willing to drink. The second is to enjoy a glass while cooking. This is a dish best served on a cold night. It’s actually a fairly simple recipe; most of the cook time is spent in the oven. Amaranth flour substitutes regular flour for the roux. It's nutty and peppery, and makes a great thickener for soups, stews, and gravies.
    Ingredients:
    10-12 bone-in beef short ribs
    3 carrots, chopped
    2 onions, cut into wedges
    2 ribs celery, with leaves, chopped
    4-5 cloves garlic
    4 fresh bay leaves
    1 cup fresh flat-leaf parsley
    3 sprigs fresh rosemary, stems picked
    4 cups beef stock
    1 bottle good red wine
    4 tablespoons olive oil, divided
    1 teaspoon ground cloves
    1 tablespoon smoked paprika
    3 tablespoons amaranth flour
    3 tablespoons butter
    Salt and pepper
    Directions:
    Preheat over to 350 F.
    Rinse ribs and pat dry. Season with cloves, paprika, salt and pepper.
    Heat 2 teaspoons oil in a large Dutch oven over high heat. Working in two batches, brown the ribs on all sides. Remove to a plate as they finish.
    As the ribs brown, combine garlic, bay leaves, parsley, and rosemary in a food processor until roughly combined. Spoon into a small bowl and set aside.
    Pour off fat and heat the remaining olive oil. Add onions, celery, and carrots, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Cook for 7-10 minutes and remove to a plate. Add garlic and herb mixture to pot, cook for a few minutes and deglaze with wine. Reduce for 15-20 minutes, add stock and return ribs. Bring to a boil and cook covered in the oven for 2 hours. Add vegetables for the last 30 minutes of cooking time.
    Just before ribs are ready to serve, melt butter in a small pan and mix with flour to create a roux. Stir in 1 cup rib sauce and then return to pot. Reduce for another 15 minutes and serve with vegetables, mashed potatoes, or polenta.

    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.

    Celiac.com 06/19/2018 - Could baking soda help reduce the inflammation and damage caused by autoimmune diseases like rheumatoid arthritis, and celiac disease? Scientists at the Medical College of Georgia at Augusta University say that a daily dose of baking soda may in fact help reduce inflammation and damage caused by autoimmune diseases like rheumatoid arthritis, and celiac disease.
    Those scientists recently gathered some of the first evidence to show that cheap, over-the-counter antacids can prompt the spleen to promote an anti-inflammatory environment that could be helpful in combating inflammatory disease.
    A type of cell called mesothelial cells line our body cavities, like the digestive tract. They have little fingers, called microvilli, that sense the environment, and warn the organs they cover that there is an invader and an immune response is needed.
    The team’s data shows that when rats or healthy people drink a solution of baking soda, the stomach makes more acid, which causes mesothelial cells on the outside of the spleen to tell the spleen to go easy on the immune response.  "It's most likely a hamburger not a bacterial infection," is basically the message, says Dr. Paul O'Connor, renal physiologist in the MCG Department of Physiology at Augusta University and the study's corresponding author.
    That message, which is transmitted with help from a chemical messenger called acetylcholine, seems to encourage the gut to shift against inflammation, say the scientists.
    In patients who drank water with baking soda for two weeks, immune cells called macrophages, shifted from primarily those that promote inflammation, called M1, to those that reduce it, called M2. "The shift from inflammatory to an anti-inflammatory profile is happening everywhere," O'Connor says. "We saw it in the kidneys, we saw it in the spleen, now we see it in the peripheral blood."
    O'Connor hopes drinking baking soda can one day produce similar results for people with autoimmune disease. "You are not really turning anything off or on, you are just pushing it toward one side by giving an anti-inflammatory stimulus," he says, in this case, away from harmful inflammation. "It's potentially a really safe way to treat inflammatory disease."
    The research was funded by the National Institutes of Health.

    Celiac.com 06/18/2018 - Celiac disease has been mainly associated with Caucasian populations in Northern Europe, and their descendants in other countries, but new scientific evidence is beginning to challenge that view. Still, the exact global prevalence of celiac disease remains unknown.  To get better data on that issue, a team of researchers recently conducted a comprehensive review and meta-analysis to get a reasonably accurate estimate the global prevalence of celiac disease. 
    The research team included P Singh, A Arora, TA Strand, DA Leffler, C Catassi, PH Green, CP Kelly, V Ahuja, and GK Makharia. They are variously affiliated with the Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Boston, Massachusetts; Lady Hardinge Medical College, New Delhi, India; Innlandet Hospital Trust, Lillehammer, Norway; Centre for International Health, University of Bergen, Bergen, Norway; Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Boston, Massachusetts; Gastroenterology Research and Development, Takeda Pharmaceuticals Inc, Cambridge, MA; Department of Pediatrics, Università Politecnica delle Marche, Ancona, Italy; Department of Medicine, Columbia University Medical Center, New York, New York; USA Celiac Disease Center, Columbia University Medical Center, New York, New York; and the Department of Gastroenterology and Human Nutrition, All India Institute of Medical Sciences, New Delhi, India.
    For their review, the team searched Medline, PubMed, and EMBASE for the keywords ‘celiac disease,’ ‘celiac,’ ‘tissue transglutaminase antibody,’ ‘anti-endomysium antibody,’ ‘endomysial antibody,’ and ‘prevalence’ for studies published from January 1991 through March 2016. 
    The team cross-referenced each article with the words ‘Asia,’ ‘Europe,’ ‘Africa,’ ‘South America,’ ‘North America,’ and ‘Australia.’ They defined celiac diagnosis based on European Society of Pediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology, and Nutrition guidelines. The team used 96 articles of 3,843 articles in their final analysis.
    Overall global prevalence of celiac disease was 1.4% in 275,818 individuals, based on positive blood tests for anti-tissue transglutaminase and/or anti-endomysial antibodies. The pooled global prevalence of biopsy-confirmed celiac disease was 0.7% in 138,792 individuals. That means that numerous people with celiac disease potentially remain undiagnosed.
    Rates of celiac disease were 0.4% in South America, 0.5% in Africa and North America, 0.6% in Asia, and 0.8% in Europe and Oceania; the prevalence was 0.6% in female vs 0.4% males. Celiac disease was significantly more common in children than adults.
    This systematic review and meta-analysis showed celiac disease to be reported worldwide. Blood test data shows celiac disease rate of 1.4%, while biopsy data shows 0.7%. The prevalence of celiac disease varies with sex, age, and location. 
    This review demonstrates a need for more comprehensive population-based studies of celiac disease in numerous countries.  The 1.4% rate indicates that there are 91.2 million people worldwide with celiac disease, and 3.9 million are in the U.S.A.
