    Savory Gluten-Free Pancakes with Fresh Peas

    Celiac.com 05/26/2018 - If you haven’t tried a savory pancake, then you’ve been missing out. In many places in the world, savory pancakes are more common than the sweet pancakes. They make a great lunch or dinner twist. This gluten-free version combines scallions and peas, but feel free to add or subtract veggies at will. Serve pancakes them warm with butter for a delicious twist on lunch or dinner.

    Ingredients:

    • 3 large eggs
    • 1 cup cottage cheese
    • ½ stick salted butter, melted
    • ¼ cup all-purpose gluten-free flour
    • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil plus more for skillet
    • 1 cup shelled fresh or frozen peas, thawed
    • 4 scallions, thinly sliced, plus more for serving
    • 1 teaspoon kosher salt plus more, as desired

    Directions:
    If using fresh peas, blanch the peas about 3 minutes in a small saucepan of boiling salted water until tender, about 3 minutes (don’t cook frozen peas). Drain well.

    In a blender, add eggs, cottage cheese, flour, 2 tablespoons oil, and 1 teaspoon salt, and purée until smooth. 

    Transfer batter to a medium bowl and stir in peas and scallions. 

    Batter should be thick but pourable; stir in water by tablespoonfuls if too thick.

    Heat a lightly oiled large nonstick skillet over medium heat. 

    Working in batches, add batter to skillet by ¼-cupfuls to form 3-inch-4-inch rounds. 

    Cook pancakes about 3 minutes, until bubbles form on top. 

    Flip and cook until pancakes are browned on bottom and the centers are just cooked through, about 2 minutes longer.

    Serve pancakes drizzled with butter and topped with scallions.

    This is not your traditional recipe for this dish, but it is, I hope, a new tradition at your table. Maybe it won’t make it to the table! I made it in small portions for those of us who cook for just ourselves. You can double it if you wish.
    Serves 2 makes one large plate full.
    Ingredients:
    One Cup Instant Rice (according to directions on box). You can use regular rice. You can even use instant brown rice. Yummy.
    ¼ teaspoon Gluten-Free vegetable or chicken bouillon
    Dash of salt
    1/3 Cup green onions (Hint below)
    1 tablespoon Sesame seeds (find these in the spice section—they are Gluten-free)
    2 ½   Table.  oil (I like Organic Sesame Oil for this on, but Sesame Oil will work)
    2 tablespoons margarine
    Optional: ¼ cup ham, or pork chop (fresh) finely chopped—no canned ham or you will ruin this dish! You can also use chicken or beef, Just as long as the meat is tender and cut it up in tiny pieces.
    Interesting Option: Pineapple pieces included with the ham—ust a few and cut into tiny pieces.
    Directions:
    Place margarine in large saucepan on stove on medium to medium-high heat. Add green onions, bouillon and salt. Brown a very short time (less than a minute). Add oil. Then spread rice over the top. Bring back up to temperature. Simmer in pan rice begins to brown. The rice will stick so you will continually have to use a pancake turner to pick it up in batches and turn it over as it “crispens.” Add sesame seeds while it is cooking. While it browns it is just getting yummier and yummier!
    Hint: As with all of my recipes on this site I like to recommend the easy way to cook and I often try to give hints. I’m a slave-over-the-stove cook.
    I keep a stash of ingredients in my freezer. I don’t particularly like to cook, I live alone, and I don’t like to throw food away. So I when I buy food I set aside time to prep. When I get onions I chop a bunch of them. I get green onions and I chop them, freeze them in little snack-bag sized Ziplocks in my freezer. Then, when I need them, I just bang them on the counter and I can take the amount of them that I need for the recipe!

    Savory Seasonal Shepherd's Pie (Gluten-Free)
    Celiac.com 01/16/2014 - Okay, so I'm a huge fan of shepherd's pie, going so far to freeze huge batches to eat for weeks after I make it.
    I'm always keen to try new takes on shepherd's pie to satisfy my culinary curiosity. This version combines seasonal root vegetables like carrots, rutabaga, and parsnip with lamb, peas onions and garlic in a rich tomato sauce to serve up a big helping of shepherd's pie love.
    Ingredients:
    3 cups prepared mashed potatoes 1 pound ground lamb 1 stalk celery, chopped 1 cup fresh mushrooms, sautéed, optional 1 medium onion, chopped 1 clove garlic, chopped 1 leek, white only, chopped 3 carrots, peeled and chopped 1 parsnip, peeled and diced 1 small rutabaga, chopped ¼ cup frozen green peas 1 (8 ounce) can tomato sauce ½ cup milk, or cream, as needed 1 teaspoon salt ¼ teaspoon garlic powder ¼ teaspoon onion powder ½ teaspoon ground black pepper ⅓ teaspoon dried thyme 2 tablespoons grated Roman cheese 1-2 teaspoons butter for cooking Directions:
    In a medium pan, over medium-high heat, sweat the mushrooms until they give up their water. Remove from heat, drain well, and set aside.
    Heat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
    In a medium pan, sauté leeks and onion in a bit of butter until translucent.
    Place the celery, carrots, parsnip, rutabaga, and peas into a large saucepan and fill with 1 inch of water.
    Bring to a boil, cover, and steam for 15 minutes, or until vegetables are tender.
    Meanwhile, break the ground lamb into a large skillet, and heat to medium.
    Cook and stir until lamb is browned. Drain off excess grease.
    To the lamb, add mushrooms, onion and garlic, salt, pepper, thyme, garlic powder and onion powder to the tomato sauce. Stir in the steamed vegetables and mix well.
    Transfer everything to a greased 7x11 inch or 9x11 inch casserole dish (depending on how thick you like the potatoes).
    Mix enough milk or cream into the mashed potatoes to make them spreadable.
    Spread them over the top of the meat and vegetable mixture and garnish freely with Romano cheese.
    Bake for 20-25 minutes until the top is browned and the inside is heated through.

    Celiac.com 07/14/2015 - French toast and BLTs are two of my many favorite things to eat. This recipe combines both to deliver a fresh, savory spin that will sure to dazzle at brunch and sizzle at lunch. Think of it as a sensible French toast, or a decadent BLT.
    The key is finding a good gluten-free bread for the French toast. I use a locally bought sourdough made from long-fermented sorghum that works great. The bread I use tends to be dense and moist, so I actually toast it lightly first, then dip it and then batter and cook it. Whatever bread you choose, I’m sure this recipe will please.
    Ingredients:
    8 slices of bacon 8 slices tomato 6 large eggs 4 slices gluten-free bread 4 lettuce leaves (romaine, Boston, or Bibb) ½ cup heavy cream ¼ cup fresh chives, chopped 3 tablespoons unsalted butter 2 tablespoons mayonnaise Coarse salt ground pepper Directions:
    Cook bacon in a frying pan until golden and crisp. Drain on paper towels.
    Meanwhile, in a large shallow dish, whisk together 2 eggs, cream, chives, and a dash of salt and pepper.
    In a large skillet, melt butter over medium heat until butter begins to sizzle.
    Dip bread in egg mixture and place in pan.
    Cook until golden and crisp around edges, about 3 minutes per side, flipping once.
    Put French toast on a plate.
    Add butter to frying pan and fry 4 eggs.
    To each slice of French toast, add mayonnaise as desired, a layer of lettuce, tomato, and bacon, and top with fried egg and chives.
    Serve open face.

    Savory Breakfast Porridge with Soft Egg and Pea Shoots (Gluten-Free)
    Celiac.com 06/09/2018 - If you haven’t tried savory porridge, then you’ve been missing out. This combination of brown rice, steel cut oats and quinoa makes a nice introduction. The perfectly boiled egg takes it to the top. Dress it up with as many vegetables as you like. You can make it a day or two ahead of time, and just top with vegetables to make a tasty, portable lunch. 
    Ingredients:
    4 large eggs, room temperature ⅓ cup brown rice, rinsed well ⅓ cup red quinoa, rinsed well ⅓ cup steel cut oats, rinsed well 2 ounces fresh pea sprouts 2 medium shallots, peeled, halved through root 1 1” piece ginger, peeled, crushed ¼ cup gluten-free tamari or soy sauce Kosher salt, freshly ground pepper 2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil, divided 2 radishes, thinly sliced 1 small Persian cucumber, diced 1½ cups spinach, wilted  Sliced almonds, more fresh pea shoots, fresh cilantro leaves, and chopped scallions, as desired Directions:
    Bring shallots, ginger, rice, quinoa, oats, and 4 cups water and 4 cups of chicken broth to a boil in a large saucepan, reduce heat, and simmer for about 1½–2 hours, stirring often after the first hour of cooking to prevent sticking. 
    Cook until mixture is thick like porridge and rice is very soft, and beginning to break down. 
    Stir in more water as needed to achieve desired thickness. 
    Discard shallots and ginger and stir in soy sauce; season with salt and pepper. 
    Add pea shoots and cook just until shoots are wilted and tender, about 1 minute.
    Meanwhile, bring a large saucepan of water to a boil, then carefully add eggs. 
    Boil exactly 6 minutes, then transfer eggs to a large bowl of ice water; saving hot water for wilting the spinach. 
    Let eggs cool and peel.
    Serve porridge drizzled with oil and topped with soft-boiled eggs, wilted spinach, cucumber, radishes, peanuts, cilantro, and scallions, as desired.
    Note: You can cook the rice and quinoa up to 2 days ahead. Reheat in the microwave before adding soy sauce and remaining ingredients.
