    Curried Potatoes with Chickpeas (Gluten-Free)


    Jefferson Adams

    Celiac.com 02/28/2014 - I love a good, rich, zesty curry. This dish is tasty, easy to make, and filling. It goes great at potlucks or large dinners, and keeps well in the freezer. Pair it with rice, and add some yogurt sauce, and you have a great meal.

    • 1½ pounds potatoes, peeled and cut into 3/4-inch chunks
    • 1 large can chickpeas (15-ounce), drained and rinsed
    • 1 cup fresh kale, chard or mustard greens, washed, drained and chopped
    • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter or ghee
    • 1½ teaspoons curry powder, to taste
    • ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
    • 2 cups onions, sliced and fried crisp
    • ½ cup plain Greek yogurt
    • ¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro, plus leaves for topping
    • 3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
    • 1 jalapeño pepper, thinly sliced (seeds removed)
    • Kosher salt

    Directions:
    Place the potatoes, 2 teaspoons salt and enough cold water to cover in a medium saucepan.

    Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer and cook until the potatoes are almost tender, 3 to 6 minutes. Reserve 1 cup cooking water, then drain the potatoes.

    Melt half of the the butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add greens and cook until soft and tender. Place aside.

    Melt remaining butter, and the potatoes and cook, stirring occasionally, until golden, about 8 minutes. Stir in the curry powder and cayenne and cook, stirring, 30 seconds.

    Add more butter as needed.

    Add the chickpeas, 1 cup fried onions and ½ cup reserved cooking water; cook, mashing the potatoes with a spoon, until heated through, about 3 minutes. Add more cooking water, if needed. Season with salt.

    Mix the yogurt, chopped cilantro, lime juice and 2 tablespoons water in a bowl.

    Spoon the potato-chickpea curry over rice. Top with the yogurt sauce, the remaining fried onions, the sliced jalapeño and cilantro.

    I like the look of these recipes!

    I hope there will not be too many specifically American products we cannot get, or could you give alternative ingredients so that some, across the pond, could join you?

    Rice : 1 cup (usually good for two suppers and a lunch, depending on how hungry one is)
    Lemon: Juice of one (medium size)
    Black mustard seeds: 1 tablespoon
    Channa dal (a kind of dried lentil): ½ tablespoon
    Urad dal: 1 teaspoon
    Turmeric: 1 teaspoon
    Dried red chilies: two (I use more and you can, too, to make it more incendiary)
    Fenugreek powder: ½ teaspoon
    Salt: To taste
    Preparation:
    In a medium-sized pot/skillet (deep enough for stuff to be sautéed in hot oil, and preferably with its own lid or capable of being covered by a plate or like device), heat 3 or 4 tablespoons of oil of your choice (canola/vegetable/corn). Throw in the mustard seeds when the oil is hot (you learn when by throwing in a couple of mustard seeds to start with and the rest about 20 seconds after the test ones pop). You must then cover your pot and let the mustard seeds pop without burning. When most or all have popped, throw in both dals, the fenugreek, and the fried chilies (split in halves, lengthwise, to get seeds in). Adjust heat and sauté until dals and chilies turn sort of golden brown. Toss in your rice and sauté for 30 seconds (this is so that rice wont be unduly sticky when cooked).
    Now your rice is ready to be cooked. I dont know if you have a rice cooker. If you do, transfer pots contents to rice cooker, throw in water (with juice of lemon mixed in) as directed by rice cooker manufacturer, add turmeric & salt, mix well, and let the cooker do its trick.
    If you dont have a rice cooker, use the same sauté pot with all its contents. Add about 2½ cups of water, salt & turmeric, and cook the rice down. Or, go ahead and add as much water as you would (mix in lemon juice, of course) and cook the rice down with salt & turmeric added to pots contents.

    I love just about every type of curry under the sun. Before I started eating gluten-free, one of my favorite curries to make was S&B's Golden Curry. It's an easy, cheap, delicious curry block that is available nearly everywhere I have ever traveled.
    The S&B company makes a number of delicious curry blocks that I now cannot use because they all contain wheat flour. However, I was shopping at Nijiya market in San Francisco's Japantown recently, when I noticed a red S&B box with Japanese writing. It looked to be an import from Japan. Unlike the other S&B curries, which list wheat flour as an ingredient, this one contained sorghum. The product is called "Curry No Ohji-sama." It comes in a red box with a cartoon of a child with a band of yellow stars across his head.
    Now, technically this product is not sold as gluten-free, so please evaluate it based on your own personal needs and judgement.

    The English label listed the following ingredients: Palm Oil, Corn Starch, Dextrin, White Sorghum, Salt, Sugar Beet, Vegetable Paste (Palm oil, pumpkin, carrot, cabbage, sweet corn, spinach, tomato, bell pepper, molokhiya), Curry Powder, Chinese Cabbage Extract Powder, Caramel, Fruit paste (Canola oil, Mango, Pineapple, Passion fruit, Apple, Banana), Yeast extract powder, Sucrose fatty acid esters, Artificial flavor, Paprika color.
    After my first try, I found that I needed to modify the curry with a bit of additional curry powder, and a dash of soy sauce. However, once I did, the result was a rich, delicious curry that goes great with rice or with your favorite gluten-free noodles.
    Lastly, this recipe also works well with pork or beef in place of chicken. It is also delicious as a vegetarian dish.
    Ingredients:
    2 tablespoons olive oil
    1 chicken breast about 6-8 ounces (substitute pork chop or beef)
    1 small onion or ½ large onion, chopped
    1 large potato or 2 small potatoes, chopped
    1 large carrot, chopped
    4-6 Crimini, brown, Shitake, or other button mushrooms
    ½ cup zucchini
    1½ tablespoons of curry powder - I use Trader Joe's.
    1 tablespoon gluten-free soy sauce or tamari
    Directions:
    Cut vegetables into bite-size pieces. Halve or quarter mushrooms, depending on size.
    In a medium saucepan, sauté onion in oil over medium heat until soft. Add meat and cook until lightly brown.
    Add remaining vegetables and sauté for a few more minutes, until vegetables are slightly cooked.
    Add 2½ cups of water and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes, skimming off and discarding any foam. Remove from heat.
    Add S&B curry cubes, curry powder and soy sauce. Cook according to package directions.
    Serve over rice, or with your favorite gluten-free noodles. Also goes great over quinoa! Makes 4-6 servings.

    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.
