    The Amazing Gluten-free No Carb Noodle

    The Amazing Gluten-free No Carb Noodle

    Celiac.com 02/19/2017 - I've been playing around in my kitchen and found a really interesting paleo side dish (or even a main!) can be created with kelp noodles. I know you're probably thinking: "Kelp? What?" But hear me out on this one. There's much more to kelp than just being huge plants that grow in the ocean!

    This impressive super food packs a nutritious punch with its high amounts of iodine, potassium, magnesium, calcium and iron, as well as vitamins, antioxidants, phytonutrients, amino acids, omega-3 fats and fiber. Wow! Not only do my gluten-free and paleo pals get to enjoy noodles, but on top of that you'll be nourishing your body in one of the most delicious ways I know of. And for my raw foodie friends, you'll be happy to know that these noodles are 100% raw.

    I enjoy these kelp noodles with a nut cheeze sauce that is full of flavor and love to pair them up with scallops or shrimp. A delicious and complete meal! Believe me, your non-gluten-free friends will be impressed with this creation as well as your kiddos. Try it out and let me know how it goes!

    Ingredients:

    • 1 package Sea Tangle Kelp Noodles
    • ½ cup nut cheeze (see below)
    • â…› cup olive oil
    • 1 teaspoon fresh rosemary, minced
    • ¼ teaspoon Celtic sea salt
    • 1 tablespoon lemon juice, freshly squeezed
    • 1 teaspoon Coconut Aminos
    • 3 tablespoons nutritional yeast
    • ½ teaspoon black pepper
    • Nut Cheeze Recipe Ingredients:
    • 2 cups cashews (I soaked mine overnight) NOTE: I have used pignoli nuts in the past but that really makes this cheeze sauce pricey.
    • 1 teaspoon fresh rosemary, de-stemmed and finely minced
    • 3 tablespoons lemon juice, freshly squeezed
    • 1 teaspoon Celtic sea salt
    • 1 ½ cups water

    Equipment: VitaMix blender, Excalibur dehydrator

    Directions

    1. Prepare Sea Tangle Kelp Noodles according to package instructions.
    2. Combine with the rest of the ingredients, including the Nut Cheeze (below).
    3. Nut Cheeze Instructions
    4. Blend all ingredients together into a thick cream.
    5. Add more water, little by little, as needed.
    6. Time to serve!
    7. Enjoy!

    Notes

    The noodles can easily be made in a low-temperature oven as well as a dehydrator. So, do not be concerned with that.

    They will last for 3 days (longer if you reheat in an oven or microwave and have no raw concerns).

    Thai Noodle Salad (Gluten-Free)
    This is a light dish that can be served as a meal or eaten as a side dish. The ingredients can vary depending on your taste buds. Preparation for this Thai salad is very minimal and with the right ingredients, this is a perfect quick gluten-free meal. This salad is light so it is perfect for those hot summer nights when you don't want to eat a heavy meal.
    Prep Time: 30 minutes
    Cook Time: 5 minutes
    Serves: (2) as a main dish or (4) as a side dish
    Ingredients:

    8-10 oz. thin dried rice noodles (vermicelli size) 2 tomatoes, cut into small slices 5 green onions, sliced finely 2 cups snow peas, steamed or boiled until bright green but still firm 1-2 cups bean sprouts 1 cup fresh coriander or cilantro, roughly chopped 1 cup fresh basil, roughly chopped 1/4 cup dry-roasted peanuts OR cashews, left whole or lightly chopped  1/2 cup deep-fried tofu, cut into small cubes
    Garnish:
     fresh basil
     fresh coriander
    chopped peanutsDressing:

    1 Tbsp. vegetable oil 1 tsp. sesame oil 2 Tbsp. gluten-free fish sauce OR 2 extra Tbsp. gluten-free soy sauce 5 Tbsp. gluten-free soy sauce 1 fresh red chili, de-seeded, OR 1/2 tsp. dried crushed chili or cayenne pepper 1-2 Tbsp. brown sugar or sugar substitute (to taste) juice of 1 fresh lime 2 cloves garlic, minced Preparation:
    Dunk noodles in a pot of boiling water. Remove pot from heat and allow noodles to soften in the hot water 10-15 minutes, or until soft enough to eat ('al dente'). When ready, drain and tip noodles into a large mixing bowl. Add the bean sprouts while noodles are still hot and gently toss (the residual heat from the noodles will lightly cook the sprouts). Mix the dressing ingredients together in a cup, stirring well to dissolve the sugar. Taste-test for a sweet-sour balance, adding more sugar if too sour for your taste. Note that the dressing will taste quite strong/salty now, but will be milder when combined with the salad. To the bowl of noodles and sprouts, add the tomatoes, green onion, shrimp or tofu, and fresh coriander. Toss to mix (If you're having trouble combining the noodles with the other ingredients because the noodles are too long and tangled, cut them several times with a pair of clean scissors.) Now add the dressing, fresh basil, and nuts, tossing well to incorporate. Taste test the salad. If not salty enough, add more fish sauce or soy sauce. If not spicy enough, add more chili. If too salty, add a little more lime juice. Eat immediately, or cover and allow to sit in the refrigerator for an hour or two, or until cold.  Place on a serving platter or in a salad dish and sprinkle with fresh basil, coriander, and peanuts. Serve with wedges of lime. Note: I like to eat lots of veggies, so I add things like steamed cauliflower, broccoli, and carrots. Also, this salad tastes best when eaten fresh, as rice noodles tend to dry out when left longer than 2 days. Until then, place in a tightly sealed container in the refrigerator, and enjoy!

    Throughout southeast Asia, street vendors prepare cheap, delicious noodles on the spot. Place an order and watch the cook's hands become a blur of ingredients dancing in a hot wok. A flash of alchemy and heat turn oil, meat, vegetables, and noodles into a piping hot delicacy that can be enjoyed just about any time of day. One day, after nursing a hankering for Asian-style noodles, I discovered spaghetti-style rice noodles at my local Asian grocery store. I picked up some sesame oil and some veggies, hit the butcher for a pork chop, and the rest, as they say, is history.  Well, actually, there was a bit of experimentation first, but that's a story for another time. Right now, you are about to enjoy delicious, healthy, cheap gluten-free noodles.
    Ingredients:
    Rice Noodles (Spaghetti style)
    ¼ cup Sesame Oil
    ½ pound Pork, cubed
    ¼ cup Cilantro, chopped
    ½ cup Scallions, chopped
    1/4 Onion, wedged and sliced
    1 Clove Garlic, minced
    ½ cup Sweet Red Pepper, chopped
    ½ cup Carrot, chopped
    ½ cup Broccoli
    1 cup Collard, Chard or similar Greens, chopped
    1 teaspoon Sugar
    1 sprig of Mint (optional)
    Splash of Rice Vinegar
    Directions:
    First, you'll need some rice noodles that are about as thick as regular spaghetti.
    Boil about 3 quarts of water, and chop some sweet red bell pepper, carrots, garlic, onion, scallion, broccoli, and some kind of greens, like collard greens.
    Also, you'll need some cilantro, a pinch of sugar and maybe some mint.
    Slice and cube the pork chop (use any kind of meat you like, or make it vegetarian style).
    Put the rice noodles a dish that can take heat, and cover them with hot water for a few minutes until they soften up a bit. When they are flexible, but still firm, strain them, but don't rinse them.
    When the noodles dry out a bit, use a fork and scissors to cut them in half.
    Heat some sesame and/or olive oil in a frying pan on high heat.
    When the oil starts to smoke, add the carrots, the peppers, stir 10 seconds, add garlic, meat, and broccoli.
    Toss quickly over a high heat for one minute.
    Add rice noodles and continue to toss or stir rapidly for 30 seconds.
    Add greens and fish sauce and toss or stir rapidly for another 30 seconds.
    As pan dries up a bit, add a splash of chicken broth and a pinch of sugar.
    Stir or toss for 15 seconds.
    Pour into large bowl, garnish with cilantro, a splash of rice vinegar and serve.

    Celiac.com 01/28/2015 - Every so often a recipe comes along that I just have to try. This terrific recipe from Melissa Clarke at the New York Times infuses cheese and spaghetti with lemony goodness to deliver a welcome change of pace to classic dinnertime pasta.
    In making this gluten-free version, I stayed close to Clarke's recipe, though I did use Meyer lemons and make a few minor changes, such as substituting Pecorino Romano cheese for Parmigiano-Reggiano, and flat parsley for regular parsley.
    It's a great way to put a romantic spin on a dinner favorite, or to add a some extra style to that basic pasta plate come dinner night.
    Ingredients:
    4 Meyer lemons 1 pound gluten-free linguine or spaghetti ( I use Schär brand) 4 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, more for drizzling 1 teaspoon kosher salt, more as needed Pinch of sugar 3½ tablespoons unsalted butter ¾ teaspoon chile flakes, more to taste 1 cup Pecorino Romano cheese, to taste ½ cup celery leaves, coarsely chopped (optional) ⅓ cup Italian parsley, coarsely chopped (optional) Sea salt, and black pepper, as needed Directions:
    Boil a large pot of salted water.
    Finely zest 2 of the lemons and set aside.
    Cut the tops and bottoms off the other 2 lemons and slice them lengthwise into quarters. Remove any seeds, and slice the quarters crosswise into thin triangles.
    Blanch the lemon triangles in the boiling water for 2 minutes, then remove them and place on a dish towel, and blot dry. 
    Add pasta to the boiling water, and cook until just barely al dente. Remove the pasta and drain, keep back ½ cup of the pasta cooking water.
    Meanwhile, in a large skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of the oil over high heat.
    Add the dried lemon pieces and season with a pinch each of salt and sugar. Cook about 3 to 5 minutes until the lemons become caramelized and browned at the edges. Transfer caramelized lemons to a plate.
    Melt the butter with the remaining oil in the pan over medium heat. Add the chile flakes and zest of both lemons; cook until fragrant.
    Whisk in the reserved pasta water.
    Toss in pasta, juice of 1 lemon, cheese, pepper and the remaining salt.
    Cook until pasta is well coated with sauce.
    Toss in the caramelized lemon and the celery leaves and parsley, as desired.
    Add lemon juice if needed.
    To serve, top with a drizzle of olive oil, and a sprinkle of sea salt and black pepper,
