    Celiac.com 09/16/2017 - Pork chops are one of the best things grill. Brine is the key. These pork chops are brined in buttermilk, so they cook up tender and juicy.

    Ingredients:

    • 2 cups buttermilk
    • 3 tablespoons packed light brown sugar
    • 4 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
    • Kosher salt
    • 6 cloves garlic, smashed
    • 6 bay leaves
    • 2 teaspoons hot sauce
    • 12 black peppercorns
    • 1 lemon
    • 6 bone-in center-cut pork loin chops (1 inch thick; about 3 pounds total)
    • Vegetable oil, for brushing
    • 6 ears of corn, husked
    • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
    • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives

    Directions:
    To make the brine, combine the buttermilk, brown sugar, 2 tablespoons olive oil, 3 tablespoons salt, the garlic, bay leaves, hot sauce and peppercorns in a large bowl.

    Remove 4 wide strips of lemon zest with a vegetable peeler and add to the brine; squeeze in the juice of the lemon.

    Pierce both sides of the pork chops a few times with a paring knife.

    Add the pork to the brine, turning to coat.

    Cover and refrigerate at least 4 hours or overnight.

    Remove the pork chops from the refrigerator 30 minutes before grilling. Allow to come to room temperature.

    Heat a grill to medium high and lightly brush the grates with vegetable oil.

    Remove the pork from the brine, letting the excess drip off, and transfer to the grill.

    Cover and cook until seared, about 5 minutes. Flip and continue cooking, uncovered, about 5 more minutes, until the other side is seared.

    Remove the pork from the grill; let rest 5 minutes.

    Serve with rice and your favorite sides.

    This classic American recipe comes to us from "Darn210" in the Gluten-Free Forum.
    Ingredients:
    Chicken (whatever kind of pieces you like)
    1 cup gluten-free flour blend
    ½ teaspoon onion powder
    ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
    ½ teaspoon Lawry's seasoned salt
    ½ teaspoon pepper
    1 teaspoon salt
    One egg
    Canola oil
    Directions:
    Mix dry ingredients (flours & spices). Beat egg in a bowl (add a tablespoon or two of water to thin it a bit). Heat a frying pan with enough oil to come up at least halfway on your thickest piece of chicken. I cook at about medium heat.
    Coat a piece of chicken in the egg. Then coat it in your flour/spice mix. Place in frying pan. After coating all pieces and putting into the pan salt them all and cover. It's hard for me to tell you when to turn . . . depends on what size pieces you are using and if they are boneless or not. For me and my stove, I turn boneless chicken breasts at about 12 minutes. They should be a nice golden brown. Salt the second side and replace lid. Cook until done and nice and golden...maybe about another 8 to 10 minutes. Remove from oil and place on plate with paper towels.

    This is a wonderfully sweet way to prepare scallops. The integrity of the scallops is well-maintained by giving them a light sear on each side, allowing them to hold their own against the tangy citrus sauce. This is a dish that utilizes both the juice and the zest of the fruit along with the savory aroma of the cider and coriander which work synchronously to create powerful dimension in the mouth. Because the quinoa cooks on its own, this recipe does not take long and makes for a beautiful presentation.
    Ingredients:
    1 ½ pounds sea scallops
    4 tangerines
    2 oranges
    1 small lemon
    1 cup quinoa, rinsed
    2 ¼ cups water
    2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
    1 ½ teaspoons toasted coriander seeds, crushed
    3 tablespoons melted butter
    2 tablespoons sugar
    1 tablespoon olive oil
    1 tablespoon fresh chives, chopped
    1 ½ teaspoon salt
    1 teaspoon pepper
    Preparation:
    Season water with ½ teaspoon salt in a medium saucepan and add quinoa. Bring to a rapid boil and then reduce heat to low and simmer, uncovered until the water is fully absorbed, up to 15 minutes. Fluff with a fork.
    While quinoa is cooking, grate 1 teaspoon of orange and lemon zest. Juice all the fruits into a bowl. Heat sugar in a skillet over medium heat until it turns a tawny-amber color. Remove from heat and whisk in vinegar, juices, zest and coriander. Return to heat and bring to a boil. Cook until sauce thickens and becomes syrupy, 8-10 minutes. Remove from heat and whisk in butter. Keep warm.
    Heat olive oil in a large skillet. Sprinkle scallops with remaining salt and pepper. Add scallops to skillet and sear first side until golden in color, about 4 minutes. Flip once and cook the other side for 2-3 more minutes.
    Serve scallops over a bed of quinoa and finish with a drizzle of the warm citrus sauce.

    A splash of citrus is one of the easiest ways to enliven any side of vegetables, especially when you use a generous amount of fruit.
    The orange zest in this dish helps bring a tasty zing and a great aroma to the walnuts. I’ve had a lot of luck with this flavor combination on broccoli and green beans as well. Substituting regular green asparagus with the white version requires that you peel them before hand. However, the extra time pays off with a striking visual presentation.
    Ingredients:
    1 pound asparagus, bottoms trimmed
    1 ½ tablespoons orange zest
    ¼ cup orange juice
    ¾ cup walnuts
    2 tablespoons butter
    2 teaspoons salt, divided
    1 teaspoon pepper
    4 quarts water
    Directions:
    Preheat oven to 325° F. Spread walnuts in an un-greased baking dish and toast for 5-7 minutes, stirring frequently to prevent burning. Remove from oven and roughly chop after nuts have cooled.
    Meanwhile, bring water to a rigorous boil and season with half the salt. Boil asparagus for about 5 minutes, until tender but still crisp. Drain and set aside.
    Melt butter in a large skillet and add chopped nuts. Add orange zest and juice and cook for 1-2 minutes. Add cooked asparagus and toss to thoroughly coat. Season with remaining salt and pepper.

    Beef tenderloin is one of those things that I rarely make but, when I do, I always find myself pledging to make more often in the future.
    Here's a recipe for a delicious beef tenderloin with a port wine and shiitake mushroom sauce that will have your diners asking what they've done to be loved so much. The recipe makes enough to serve two people. Scale accordingly.
    Ingredients:
    1 pound beef tenderloin, cut into 1-inch cubes
    1½ tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil, divided
    1 cup shiitake mushrooms, thinly sliced
    1 cup port wine
    2 teaspoons seedless raspberry or blackberry jam
    1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce (Lea and Perins is gluten-free)
    ¾ cup beef broth
    salt and pepper to taste
    Directions:
    Lightly season beef tenderloin cubes with salt and pepper, then set aside at room temperature, and continue preparing the rest of the ingredients.
    Heat ¾ tablespoon olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Stir in the shiitake mushrooms, and cook about five minutes until they wilt and start to turn golden brown. Remove the mushrooms from the skillet and set aside.
    Heat the remaining olive oil in the skillet until it begins to smoke, then add the beef tenderloin cubes.
    Stir until cubes are brown on the outside and the meat is cooked just short of your desired degree of doneness, about 5 minutes total for medium rare tenderloin cubes.
    Remove the tenderloin cubes from the skillet and set aside.
    Turn up the heat, add the port wine to the skillet and bring to a boil.
    Boil until the port has reduced by half, then whisk in the jam, Worcestershire sauce, beef broth, and shiitake mushrooms. Continue cooking until the sauce has reduced to ⅓ to ½ cup, about 30 minutes. Once reduced, stir in the tenderloin cubes, and reheat briefly until warm. Remove and serve.

    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.
