    Celiac.com 07/21/2018 - These easy-to-make tortilla wraps make a great addition to your lunchtime menu. Simply grab your favorite gluten-free tortillas, a bit of cream cheese, some charred fresh sweet corn, creamy avocado and ripe summer tomato. Add a bit of sliced roast beef and some mayonnaise and hot sauce, and you’re in business. And it's all ready in about half an hour. If you cook the corn the night before, they can be ready in just a few minutes.

    Ingredients:

    • 12 ounces thinly sliced cooked beef, sliced
    • 6 burrito-sized gluten-free tortillas
    • 1 ripe medium avocado, diced
    • 1 large tomato, diced
    • ½ medium red onion, thinly sliced
    • ¼ cup mayonnaise
    • 2 ears sweet corn, husks and silk removed
    • 1 teaspoon olive oil
    • ¾ cup soft cream cheese spread
    • 1-2 teaspoons gluten-free hot sauce of choice
    • Sprouted pea greens, as desired
    • fresh salsa, as desired

    Directions:
    Heat grill to medium-hot. 

    Brush corn with olive oil. 

    In a small dish, blend mayonnaise and hot sauce. Adjust mixture, and add fresh salsa, as desired.

    Grill corn for 8 to 12 minutes, turning as it browns and lowering heat as needed until corn is tender and charred in some places. 

    Cool slightly; cut kernels from cobs.

    Spread 2 tablespoons cream cheese on one side of each tortilla to within ½-inch of edge; arrange beef slices to cover.

    Spread beef with mayonnaise hot sauce mixture as desired.

    Place a bit of grilled corn kernels, avocado, tomato and red onion in a 3-inch strip along one edge of each tortilla. 

    Fold ends and roll into a burrito shape, and serve. I like to add sweet, crunchy pea greens for some extra crunch and nutrition.

    The photo looks like the tortillas are browned -- i.e.  heated or 'grilled' --  and I don't see anything in the directions about that.  Can someone add more info to the preparation directions if that's the case?

    I was wondering the same thing about the tortillas. They appear to be perhaps deep fried?

    I agree with Guest in Pgh, recipe looks delicious, but tortillas looked like they have been fried and recipe does not not include any info on that.

    Layering different spices is a sensory indulgence as much as it is an experience in cooking. I love this recipe and curries in general because the spices work together to take command of the dish and infuse otherwise ordinary ingredients with brazen flavor.
    Most major manufacturers of spices will state on their label that they are gluten-free, but always double check because some brands use trace amounts of flour to prevent caking.
    This recipe can easily be substituted with canned chickpeas, but if time allows, always opt for fresh. If you can utilize beans in other recipes, purchasing dried chickpeas will actually save you money. This recipe makes enough to serve up to 8 people and is also great over rice. Cooked chickpeas double as the base for an endless variety of hummus dips!
    Ingredients:
    3 cups dried chickpeas
    2-3 large diced tomatoes with juices
    2 medium onions thinly sliced
    4 cloves minced garlic
    2 tablespoons vegetable oil or ghee (check label for gluten-free)
    2 teaspoons chili powder
    2 teaspoons turmeric
    2 teaspoons garam masala
    2 teaspoons paprika
    2 tablespoons ground cumin
    2 tablespoons ground coriander
    1 teaspoon allspice
    1 teaspoon salt
    1 bay leaf
    1 tablespoon fresh parsley
    6-8 gluten-free pitas
    Green onions trimmed, for tying (optional)
    Directions:
    Place dried chickpeas in a large bowl and cover with water at least three inches above the beans. Let soak overnight and beans will expand twice their size.
    Drain chickpeas and place in a large stockpot. Cover with fresh water at least three inches over the beans. Add bay leaf and bring to a gentle boil before reducing heat to low.
    Continue to simmer for about 1 hour or until beans are cooked, but not mushy.
    Discard bay leaf. Drain and reserve chickpeas.
    Heat oil in a large pan and cook onions about 5 minutes or until they become soft and translucent. Add garlic and cook for a minute longer, stirring.
    Add chili powder, turmeric, paprika, cumin, coriander, allspice and salt and stir over heat until the spices become very fragrant, only about a minute.
    Stir in reserved chickpeas and tomatoes until well-combined. Cover pan and simmer over low heat for 20-25 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in garam masala and simmer another 10 minutes. Top with fresh parsley.
    Serve wrapped in heated pitas. Tie loosely with trimmed onions for presentation.

    Amy's Gluten-Free Tofu Scramble Breakfast Wrap
    If your looking for a quick grab and go breakfast or a satisfying snack that is gluten free, dairy free and also vegan, then I would suggest Amy's Gluten-free Tofu Scramble Breakfast Wrap.  You can either microwave it just shy of 2 minutes, or put it in the oven if you prefer a crispier wrap. 
    This wrap is filled with organic vegetables like tomatoes, zucchini, mushrooms and spinach.  Amy's wrap also has organic hash browns which I think gives it more of that “comfort food” feeling, along with plenty of organic tofu of course. 
    In my opinion, this was well seasoned, and I really liked how they blended all of these nutritional ingredients to make not just a healthy breakfast alternative, but a tasty one as well. 
    Amy's Gluten-free Tofu Scramble is wrapped up like a burrito, but I would have to say that the texture of the wrap reminds me more of a crêpe than it does a tortilla, but I like it just the same.  In addition to tasting great, this wrap contains 11 grams of protein and has no trans fat, MSG or preservatives – not a bad way to start the day!

    Asian Lettuce Wraps (Gluten-Free)
    Celiac.com 10/16/2014 - For those lucky enough to have traveled in Lao, Thailand, Cambodia, and Vietnam, these lettuce wraps might seem familiar. Variations on lettuce cups are fairly common in the cuisine of those countries.
    These lettuce cups are easy to make, barbecue friendly, and are usually a big hit with party guests.
    These are made with pork, but I’ve seen variations using chicken, beef, or even fish.
    Ingredients:
    16-20 Boston Bibb or butter lettuce leaves 1 pound pork loin, cut into small chunks 1 package of rice vermicelli, softened and drained 8-10 bunch green onions, chopped 4 sprigs fresh mint 1 tablespoon cooking oil 1 large onion, chopped 2 cloves fresh garlic, minced ¼ cup gluten-free hoisin sauce 1 tablespoon gluten-free soy sauce 1 tablespoon rice vinegar 1 dash red chile pepper sauce (Sriracha or similar) 2 teaspoons sesame oil Directions:
    Place rice vermicelli in boiling water. Cook to al dente, about 3 minutes. Remove from heat, rinse in cold water and
    Rinse whole lettuce leaves and pat dry. Set aside.
    Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat.
    Cook and stir pork and cooking oil in the hot skillet until browned and crumbly, 5 to 7 minutes.
    Drain and discard grease; transfer pork to a bowl. Cook and stir onion in the same skillet until slightly tender, 5 to 10 minutes.
    Stir hoisin sauce, garlic, soy sauce, vinegar, and chile sauce into onions.
    Add water, green onions, sesame oil, and cooked pork; cook and stir until the onions just begin to soften, about 2 minutes.
    Place meat in a bowl and serve with cold, cooked vermicelli, and lettuce.
    To eat, place a small amount of noodles, meat, and scallions, mint, as desired, and wrap in lettuce like a small burrito.

    Can a Gluten-Free Diet Normalize Vitamin D Levels for Celiac Patients?
    Celiac.com 08/16/2018 - What is the significance of vitamin D serum levels in adult celiac patients? A pair of researchers recently set out to assess the value and significance of 25(OH) and 1,25(OH) vitamin D serum levels in adult celiac patients through a comprehensive review of medical literature.
    Researchers included F Zingone and C Ciacci are affiliated with the Gastroenterology Unit, Department of Surgery, Oncology and Gastroenterology, University of Padua, Padua, Italy; and the Celiac Center, AOU San Giovanni di Dio e Ruggi di Aragona, University of Salerno, Department of Medicine and Surgery, Salerno, Italy. 
    Within the wide spectrum of symptoms and alteration of systems that characterizes celiac disease, several studies indicate a low-level of vitamin D, therefore recent guidelines suggest its evaluation at the time of diagnosis. This review examines the data from existing studies in which vitamin D has been assessed in celiac patients. 
    Our review indicates that most of the studies on vitamin D in adult celiac disease report a 25 (OH) vitamin D deficiency at diagnosis that disappears when the patient goes on a gluten-free diet, independently of any supplementation. Instead, the researchers found that levels of calcitriol, the active 1,25 (OH) form of vitamin D, fell within the normal range at the time of celiac diagnosis. 
    Basically, their study strongly suggests that people with celiac disease can recover normal vitamin D levels through a gluten-free diet, without requiring any supplementation.

    Could Gluten-Free Food Be Hurting Your Dog?
    Celiac.com 08/15/2018 - Grain-free food has been linked to heart disease in dogs. A canine cardiovascular disease that has historically been seen in just a few breeds is becoming more common in other breeds, and one possible culprit is grain-free dog food. 
    The disease in question is called canine dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM), and often results in congestive heart failure. DCM is historically common in large dogs such as Great Danes, Newfoundlands, Irish Wolfhounds, Saint Bernards and Doberman Pinschers, though it is also affects some Cocker Spaniels.  Numerous cases of DCM have been reported in smaller dogs, whose primary source of nutrition was food containing peas, lentils, other legume seeds or potatoes as main ingredients. These reported atypical DCM cases included Golden and Labrador Retrievers, a Whippet, a Shih Tzu, a Bulldog and Miniature Schnauzers, as well as mixed breeds. 
    As a result, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration's Center for Veterinary Medicine, along with a group of veterinary diagnostic laboratories, is investigating the possible link between DCM and pet foods containing seeds or potatoes as main ingredients. The good news is that in cases where the dog suffers no genetic component, and the disease is caught early, simple veterinary treatment and dietary change may improve heart function.
    According to Nutritional Outlook, an industry publication for makers of dietary supplements and healthy foods and beverages, there is a growing market for “free from” foods for dogs, especially gluten-free and grain-free formulations. In 2017, about one in five dog foods launched was gluten-free. So, do dogs really need to eat grain-free or gluten-free food? Probably not, according to PetMD, which notes that many pet owners are simply projecting their own food biases when choosing dog food.
    Genetically, dogs are well adapted to easily digest grains and other carbohydrates. Also, beef and dairy remain the most common allergens for dogs, so even dogs with allergies are unlikely to need to need grain-free food. 
    So, the take away here seems to be that most dogs don’t need grain-free or gluten-free food, and that it might actually be bad for the dog, not good, as the owner might imagine.
    Stay tuned for more on the FDA’s investigation and any findings they make.

    Did You Miss the Gluten-Free Fireworks This Past Fourth of July?
    Celiac.com 08/14/2018 - Occasionally, Celiac.com learns of an amusing gluten-free story after the fact. Such is the case of the “Gluten-Free Fireworks.” 
    We recently learned about a funny little event that happened leading up to Fourth of July celebrations in the town of Springdale in Northwest Arkansas. It seems that a sign advertising "Gluten Free Fireworks" popped up near a fireworks stand on interstate 49 in Springdale. 
    In case you missed the recent dose of Fourth of July humor, in an effort to attract customers and provide a bit of holiday levity, Pinnacle Fireworks put up a sign advertising "gluten-free fireworks.” 
    The small company is owned by Adam Keeley and his father. "A lot of the people that come in want to crack a joke right along with you," Keeley said. "Every now and then, you will get someone that comes in and says so fireworks are supposed to be gluten-free right? Have I been buying fireworks that have gluten? So then I say no, no they are gluten-free. It's just a little fun."
    Keeley said that their stand saw a steady flow of customers in the week leading up to the Fourth. In addition to selling “gluten-free” fireworks, each fireworks package sold by Pinnacle features a QR code. The code can be scanned with a smartphone. The link leads to a video showing what the fireworks look like.
    We at Celiac.com hope you and your family had a safe, enjoyable, and, yes, gluten-free Fourth of July. Stay tuned for more on gluten-free fireworks and other zany, tongue-in-cheek stories.

    Stress-Related Disorders Associated with Higher Risk for Autoimmune Disease
    Celiac.com 08/13/2018 - It’s not uncommon for people to have psychiatric reactions to stressful life events, and these reactions may trigger some immune dysfunction. Researchers don’t yet know whether such reactions increase overall risk of autoimmune disease.
    Are psychiatric reactions induced by trauma or other life stressors associated with subsequent risk of autoimmune disease? Are stress-related disorders significantly associated with risk of subsequent autoimmune disease?
    A team of researchers recently set out to determine whether there is an association between stress-related disorders and subsequent autoimmune disease. The research team included Huan Song, MD, PhD; Fang Fang, MD, PhD; Gunnar Tomasson, MD, PhD; Filip K. Arnberg, PhD; David Mataix-Cols, PhD; Lorena Fernández de la Cruz, PhD; Catarina Almqvist, MD, PhD; Katja Fall, MD, PhD; Unnur A. Valdimarsdóttir, PhD.
    They are variously affiliated with the Center of Public Health Sciences, Faculty of Medicine, University of Iceland, Reykjavík, Iceland; the Department of Medical Epidemiology and Biostatistics, Karolinska Institutet, Stockholm, Sweden; the Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics, Faculty of Medicine, University of Iceland, Reykjavík, Iceland; the Department of Rheumatology, University Hospital, Reykjavík, Iceland; the Centre for Rheumatology Research, University Hospital, Reykjavík, Iceland; the National Centre for Disaster Psychiatry, Department of Neuroscience, Psychiatry, Uppsala University, Uppsala, Sweden; the Stress Research Institute, Stockholm University, Stockholm, Sweden; the Centre for Psychiatry Research, Department of Clinical Neuroscience, Karolinska Institutet, Stockholm, Sweden; the Stockholm Health Care Services, Stockholm County Council, Stockholm, Sweden; the Astrid Lindgren Children’s Hospital, Karolinska University Hospital, Stockholm, Sweden; the Clinical Epidemiology and Biostatistics, School of Medical Sciences, Örebro University, Örebro, Sweden; the Department of Medical Epidemiology and Biostatistics, Karolinska Institutet, Stockholm, Sweden; and the Department of Epidemiology, Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, Boston, Massachusetts.
    The team conducted a Swedish register-based retrospective cohort study that included 106, 464 patients with stress-related disorders, 1,064 ,640 matched unexposed individuals, and 126 ,652 full siblings to determine whether a clinical diagnosis of stress-related disorders was significantly associated with an increased risk of autoimmune disease.
    The team identified stress-related disorder and autoimmune diseases using the National Patient Register. They used Cox model to estimate hazard ratios (HRs) with 95% CIs of 41 autoimmune diseases beyond 1 year after the diagnosis of stress-related disorders, controlling for multiple risk factors.
    The data showed that being diagnosed with a stress-related disorder, such as post-traumatic stress disorder, acute stress reaction, adjustment disorder, and other stress reactions, was significantly associated with an increased risk of autoimmune disease, compared with matched unexposed individuals. The team is calling for further studies to better understand the associations and the underlying factors.
