    These recipes come to us from Jeanne Barkemeijer de Wit.

    I discovered that molasses and salt tastes a lot like soy sauce. (To me at least) Ive built a number of sauces around a core of ingredients. Basically I use variations containing varying amounts of balsamic vinegar, dark unsulfered molasses, fruits, turbanado (raw) sugar and sea salt. Here are a few of my recipes:

    Sweet and Sour Sauce

    16 oz Pureed Strawberries (or other pureed fruit - fresh or canned)
    1 cup turbanado (raw) sugar (For a sweeter taste add a can of frozen condensed fruit juice syrup. I like using Bacardis strawberry frozen margarita concentrate, but any frozen strawberry concentrate will work.)
    8-16 ounces of sweet bell pepper - chopped
    1 teaspoon fresh chopped garlic (or gluten-free powdered substitute)
    1 teaspoon salt
    4 oz molasses

    Combine all ingredients, pour over chicken, beef, or pork. Cook for 2 hours at 340 degrees. I sometimes add fresh strawberries to the dish an hour before cooking is finished.

    Alternative Soy Sauce

    8 oz molasses, 3 oz. balsamic vinegar, sugar to taste.

    Teriyaki Sauce

    Add pureed pineapple (or strawberries) to the above Bar-B-Que sauce
    16 oz stewed tomatoes pureed
    16 oz molasses
    6 oz balsamic vinegar
    teaspoon fresh crushed black pepper
    table spoon crushed garlic
    16 oz canned peaches - pureed
    sweet red peppers to taste
    1 cup turbanado (raw) sugar
    1 cup green onions

    Combine all ingredients in large pot and cook for about an hour. If you want a thicker sauce you can add a tablespoon of corn starch, or cook the entire mixture at a slow boil (stirring frequently) until it reduces to the consistency you desire.

  • About Me

    In 1994 I was diagnosed with celiac disease, which led me to create Celiac.com in 1995. I created this site for a single purpose: To help as many people as possible with celiac disease get diagnosed so they can begin to live happy, healthy gluten-free lives. Celiac.com was the first site on the Internet dedicated solely to celiac disease. In 1998 I founded The Gluten-Free Mall, Your Special Diet Superstore!, and I am the co-author of the book Cereal Killers, and founder and publisher of Journal of Gluten Sensitivity.

    This recipe comes to us from "Carriefaith" in the Gluten-Free Forum.
    Ingredients:
    5 cups of water, add more if necessary
    1 extra large carrot or 2 small carrots, minced in a blender or food processor
    1 large celery stick or 2 small celery sticks, minced in a blender or food processor
    2 cups of spinach leaves, minced in a blender or food processor
    1 red pepper, diced
    3-4 green onions, diced
    2 cups of gluten free noodles, I use Thai Kichen rice noodles
    ¾ cup of VH Asian Five Spice sauce, add more if necessary
    1-2 tablespoons chili sauce, optional (I use Thai Kicken Spicy Thai Chili Sauce)
    1-2 McCormick all-vegetable bouillon (vegetable, chicken, or beef)
    2 tablespoons of vinegar
    Directions:
    Put everything in a large pot, bring to a boil and then cook on medium heat for about 20 minutes. Very tasty.

    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!

    Celiac.com 08/29/2013 - Eating grilled meat or seafood off sticks is a rite of passage in Thailand. Street-side food stands are ubiquitous in Bangkok, and offer a mind-boggling variety of options.
    Those options often include a delicious ground pork grilled on skewers and served hot. These Thai-style pork skewers are super easy to make and disappear fast at grilling sessions.
    Ingredients:
    1 pound ground pork 3 tablespoons chopped mint 3 tablespoons cilantro 3 tablespoons basil 1 shallot, minced 1 hot chile, minced 2½ tablespoons gluten-free fish sauce 2½ tablespoons lime juice Directions:
    In a large bowl, mix ground pork, chopped mint, cilantro, basil, minced shallot, hot chile, fish sauce and lime juice.
    Form balls of the mixture into 2-inch ovals; place 1-2 per skewer and grill until done.
    Serve.

    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 coeliac 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 coeliac 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.

    Celiac.com 06/19/2018 - Could baking soda help reduce the inflammation and damage caused by autoimmune diseases like rheumatoid arthritis, and celiac disease? Scientists at the Medical College of Georgia at Augusta University say that a daily dose of baking soda may in fact help reduce inflammation and damage caused by autoimmune diseases like rheumatoid arthritis, and celiac disease.
    Those scientists recently gathered some of the first evidence to show that cheap, over-the-counter antacids can prompt the spleen to promote an anti-inflammatory environment that could be helpful in combating inflammatory disease.
    A type of cell called mesothelial cells line our body cavities, like the digestive tract. They have little fingers, called microvilli, that sense the environment, and warn the organs they cover that there is an invader and an immune response is needed.
    The team’s data shows that when rats or healthy people drink a solution of baking soda, the stomach makes more acid, which causes mesothelial cells on the outside of the spleen to tell the spleen to go easy on the immune response.  "It's most likely a hamburger not a bacterial infection," is basically the message, says Dr. Paul O'Connor, renal physiologist in the MCG Department of Physiology at Augusta University and the study's corresponding author.
    That message, which is transmitted with help from a chemical messenger called acetylcholine, seems to encourage the gut to shift against inflammation, say the scientists.
    In patients who drank water with baking soda for two weeks, immune cells called macrophages, shifted from primarily those that promote inflammation, called M1, to those that reduce it, called M2. "The shift from inflammatory to an anti-inflammatory profile is happening everywhere," O'Connor says. "We saw it in the kidneys, we saw it in the spleen, now we see it in the peripheral blood."
    O'Connor hopes drinking baking soda can one day produce similar results for people with autoimmune disease. "You are not really turning anything off or on, you are just pushing it toward one side by giving an anti-inflammatory stimulus," he says, in this case, away from harmful inflammation. "It's potentially a really safe way to treat inflammatory disease."
    The research was funded by the National Institutes of Health.
