    Wendy Cohan

    This is a fun, lively gluten-free recipe suitable for family or friends, or even entertaining a crowd.  It's especially nice to make in the early to mid summer when fresh green beans are in season.

    Put Thai jasmine rice or Basmati rice onto cook in rice cooker or stove top.

    Panang Curry Paste Ingredients:
    1/3 cup dried red chilis (California chilis are fine), soaked until soft, seeds removed
    1 teaspoon salt
    2 teaspoons diced fresh ginger
    1 teaspoon toasted cumin seeds
    2 tablespoons each diced garlic & shallots
    1 tablespoon roasted peanuts (or almonds)
    1 teaspoon shrimp paste or dried shrimp (Mojave brand – contains sulfites)
    2 tablespoons cashew-macadamia nut butter, almond butter or peanut butter
    1 teaspoon grated lime peel
    1 tablespoon dark agave syrup or dark brown sugar
    ¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro
    2 Tablespoons chopped lemon grass (optional)

    Place all ingredients in food processor and pulse to combine, then run for a few minutes until a fine paste forms.  Let paste rest at room temperature for all flavors to combine, while assembling remaining ingredients.

    Pangang Curry Ingredients:
    1 tablespoon canola or peanut oil + 1 teaspoon sesame oil
    2 cups sliced chicken tenders or boneless skinless chicken breast or
    2 cups sliced beef (a tender cut for stir-frying)
    1 cup sliced button mushrooms
    2 cups sliced fresh green beans
    (optional – ½ red pepper, or 1 carrot sliced)
    2 tablespoons fish sauce (Thai Kitchen brand has a good g.f. one)
    ½ cup coconut milk
    1 cup chicken broth (I use Pacific Foods brand, which has a good clean taste)
    ¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro
    ½ cup chopped Thai Basil
    Juice of ½ lime

    Cooking Directions:
    Sauté Panang curry paste in oil for at least two minutes to allow flavor of spices to develop.  Add chopped chicken and combine with paste, sautéing on medium-high heat until chicken begins to cook, then add green beans and mushrooms, continuing to sauté over medium-high heat until vegetables begin to become tender.  Add 1 cup chicken broth and cook a few more minutes, then add fish sauce, lime juice, and herbs.  Sauté for a few more minutes.  Add coconut milk and reduce heat to low while adjusting seasonings.  Serve over rice.

    Thai recipes make for excellent potentially gluten-free cuisine. If completely fresh ingredients are used, rather than trusting others to manufacture uncontaminated products, when you know how difficult doing so yourself is, delicious and safe meals are possible. (To get around packaged products, buy nuts in bulk, rinse thoroughly, soak, and roast or press yourself; make your own broths from meats you know are gluten-free; if you do not press your own oil, lightly steam foods rather than sauté; grow your own spices–or purchase in bulk as whole as possible and thoroughly rinse before seasoning your meals.)

    Celiac.com 09/17/2013 - Koreans know a thing or two about barbecue. In fact, I would put Korean barbecue right in the top four or five of my favorite styles of barbecue.
    These Korean-style barbecue skewers are easy to make and easy to cook, and they taste delicious.
    Ingredients:
    1 pound Korean-style short ribs (cut across the bone)
    ½ cup scallion, chopped
    ⅓ cup sugar
    ⅓ white wine
    3 tablespoons sesame oil
    ½ cup soy sauce
    2 crushed garlic cloves
    1 grated Asian pear
    1 dozen skewers, soaked in water
    Directions:
    Marinate thinly sliced short ribs and scallion pieces in 1/3 cup each sugar and white wine, 3 tablespoons sesame oil, 1/2 cup soy sauce, 2 crushed garlic cloves and 1 grated Asian pear.
    Skewer so the meat lies flat, avoiding the bone. Grill over medium-high heat.
    Serve with rice and kimchee.

    Soba is a Japanese classic. These noodles were originally made with pure buckwheat, which is naturally gluten-free. These days, you can still find pure buckwheat soba noodles at many Asian grocers, or online.
    This version marries gluten-free pure buckwheat noodles, steak, snow peas, and a few other simple ingredients to deliver dish that pays homage to soba's traditional roots.
    Ingredients:
    1 package (8.8 ounces) soba (Japanese buckwheat noodles) 1 pound skirt steak, cut to fit in skillet 1 pound snow peas, stem ends removed 2 large shallots, thinly sliced and separated into rings 6 garlic cloves, coarsely chopped 2 scallions, finely chopped 1/4 cup chopped cilantro 1 teaspoon finely grated lime zest, plus 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice Kosher salt and ground pepper 1 teaspoon honey 2 tablespoons gluten-free soy sauce NOTE: Cook steak rare to medium-rare for this dish. Do not cook steak beyond medium-rare.
    Directions:
    Add 1 teaspoon of salt to a pot of boiling water.
    Add noodles and cook until al dente. Rinse in cold water, drain, and set aside.
    Heat a large skillet over medium-high. Season steak with salt and pepper. Cook (in batches if necessary), turning once, until medium-rare, 2 to 6 minutes per side.
    Transfer steak to a cutting board, and loosely tent with aluminum foil. Reserve pan juices in skillet.
    Add garlic, shallot, and toss with juices, cook bout 1 minute.
    Add soy sauce, lime zest, lime juice, honey, and 2 tablespoons water, as needed. Cook another minute, stirring well.
    Add snow peas to skillet, and cook on medium-high heat, tossing occasionally, until tender, but crisp, 2 to 3 minutes.
    Add noodles. Cook until warmed through, about 20 seconds. Transfer to serving bowls.
    Slice steak and arrange over the top of the noodles, and add any pan juices. Top with cilantro, and serve.

    Cashew chicken is one of my favorite Asian dishes, but it's almost always made with Hoisin sauce, which usually includes wheat flour, so I usually avoid the temptation to order it when I'm out.
    So, recently, just as I was recalling my love of cashew chicken, I remembered the gluten-free hoisin sauce in my refrigerator, and I was off to the races.
    This recipe for cashew chicken is easy to make, and delivers a tasty dish that will please most eaters, and help you to liven up your dinner repertoire.
    Ingredients:
    1 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into bite size strips, about 1-inch x ¼-inch each.
    1 tablespoon cornstarch
    2 tablespoons vegetable oil, such as safflower
    5 slices ginger
    6 cloves garlic, minced
    8 scallions, white and green parts separated, each cut into 1-inch pieces
    ½ red bell pepper, sliced
    1 stalk of celery, sliced
    ½ tablespoon gluten-free hoisin sauce (I use Premier brand)
    ½ tablespoon gluten-free oyster sauce
    1 teaspoon gluten-free soy sauce
    1 teaspoon teaspoon rice vinegar
    3 tablespoons water
    3 dashes white pepper powder
    ½ teaspoon sugar
    â…› teaspoon sesame oil
    ¾ cup toasted raw cashews
    ¼-½ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
    Salt to taste
    White rice, for serving (optional)
    Directions:
    In a medium bowl, toss chicken with cornstarch until chicken is coated; season with ¾ teaspoon salt and ¼ teaspoon pepper.
    Heat a tablespoon oil in a sauté pan over medium-high heat. Cook half the chicken, tossing often, until browned, about 3 minutes. Transfer to a plate.
    Add remaining oil and chicken to skillet along with the garlic, ginger, and white parts of scallions.
    Cook, tossing often, until chicken is browned, about 3 minutes. Return first batch of chicken to pan. Add vinegar; cook until evaporated, about 30 seconds.
    Add sesame oil, celery, red peppers, oyster sauce, hoisin sauce, soy sauce, pepper and water, and cook, tossing, until chicken is cooked through, about 1 minutes or so. Remove from heat.
    Stir in scallion greens and cashews. Serve immediately over white rice, if desired.

    Celiac.com 03/11/2014 - Here's an easy to make recipe for Thai-style chicken that combines three sauces, onions, peppers, garlic, and, of course, plenty of basil.
    If you like chicken, and you like basil, and you're open to Asian-style dishes, you will likely enjoy this tasty chicken dish. I like to serve it over rice, and I sometimes pair it with a nice Thai-style vegetable curry.
    Ingredients:
    1 pound boneless skinless chicken breast halves, sliced ¼-inch thick 2 small red bell peppers, cut into ¼-inch-wide strips 1 tablespoon cornstarch 1 cup fresh basil leaves, lightly chopped 1 small onion, halved and cut into ¼-inch-thick wedges 1 teaspoon chopped garlic 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes coconut oil, for stir-fying cilantro springs for garnish salt and pepper to taste  Sauce 1
    2 tablespoons gluten-free fish sauce 2 teaspoons sugar 2 tablespoons gluten-free soy sauce Sauce 2
    2 tablespoons gluten-free oyster sauce (Lee Kum Kee - Choy Sun) 4 tablespoons water 1 teaspoon chili paste Sauce 3
    1 teaspoon cornstarch 2 tablespoons water Directions:
    Rinse chicken pieces and pat dry with paper towels.
    In a medium bowl, mix cornstarch, salt and pepper. Toss in chicken strips and toss until well-coated with cornstarch.
    Heat oil in wok. Stir-fry onions and peppers until soft. Remove and keep warm.
    Add oil to wok as needed and stir-fry chicken, garlic, and pepper flakes until chicken is done.
    Add sauces in order, stirring each time to fully coat. Add cooked vegetables back and stir to coat.
    Add basil, stirring just until hot-crisp, and beginning to wilt.
    Garnish with cilantro and serve immediately over rice.

    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.
