    This winter vegetable soup does the trick nicely. It features tasty seasonal vegetables like squash, turnip, carry, chard and apple to deliver a rich, hearty soup. I like to add rice to mine for an extra hearty kick.

    The versatility of green beans to adapt to different flavors makes them an incredible side that compliments almost any meal. This is a beautiful dish that blends ease with elegance. The nuttiness of the almonds contrasts tartness of the cherries and because the beans are blanched, they cook to crisp perfection. This salad makes for an incredible bite.
    Cherries are high in iron and antioxidants and their flavor lends this dish to be enjoyed by even the pickiest of veggie-phobes.
    Ingredients:
    1 ½ pounds green beans
    1/3 cup minced shallots
    2 tbsp chopped mint
    1/3 cup dried cherries
    ½ cup toasted slivered almonds
    1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil   
    3 tbsp plus 2 tsp red wine vinegar
    1 ½ tsp kosher salt
    1 tsp sugar
    Preparation:
    Cherry vinaigrette can be made up to one day ahead. Keep covered and chilled; bring to room temperature before re-whisking to serve.
    In a small bowl, whisk together olive oil, shallots, red wine vinegar, mint, salt and sugar. Stir in cherries and set aside.
    While a large pot of water comes to a boil, fill a large bowl with ice water and set aside. Add beans to boiling water and let cook until tender and crisp, no more than 5 minutes. Drain and transfer beans to the ice bath to cool. Drain once more.
    Toss cooled beans with the cherry vinaigrette and almonds. Sprinkle with black pepper and serve on a platter.

    Celiac.com 02/11/2015 - Broth is the new black. Read the food magazines and blogs and you will inevitably come upon an article about the benefits of broth. But, unlike so many health foods, broth is not an overhyped fad food.
    Broth can be digested by every body, and broth is healthy for everyone.
    For people with celiac disease or gluten-intolerance, broth can be part of a diet that promotes healing and wellness of the gut, the immune system, the bones and more.
    From baby to granny and from sickest to healthiest, broth has something for everyone.
    Ingredients:
    4 pounds beef marrow and knuckle bones 3 pounds meaty rib or neck bones 4 or more quarts cold filtered water ½ cup cider vinegar 3 onions, coarsely chopped 3 carrots, coarsely chopped 3 celery stalks, coarsely chopped several sprigs of fresh thyme, tied together 1 teaspoon dried peppercorns, crushed l bunch flat parsley, chopped Directions:
    Place the knuckle and marrow bones into a very large pot with vinegar and cover with water. Let sit for one hour.
    Meanwhile, place the meaty bones in a roasting pan and brown at 350 degrees in the oven.
    When well browned, add to the pot along with the vegetables. Pour the fat out of the roasting pan, add cold water to the pan, set over a high flame and bring to a boil, stirring with a wooden spoon to loosen up coagulated juices.
    Add this liquid to the pot. Top with water, if needed, just enough to cover the bones.
    **NOTE: Remember to keep the liquid no higher than one inch below the rim of the pot, as the volume expands slightly during cooking.
    Bring pot to a boil.
    A large amount of frothy scum will rise to the top, and it is important to remove this with a spoon or mesh skimmer. After you have skimmed, reduce heat and add the thyme and crushed peppercorns.
    Simmer stock for at least 12 and as long as 72 hours. Just before finishing, add the parsley and simmer another 10 minutes.
    At this point, the broth will look more like a scary brown liquid with globs of gelatinous and fatty material. It won’t even smell very good.
    However, all you need to do is to strain it properly to get a delicious and nourishing clear broth that you can use for myriad soups and stews and other dishes.
    So, remove bones with tongs or a slotted spoon, and strain the stock through a sieve or mesh strainer and into a large bowl.
    Refrigerate the bowl and, once it’s cold, remove the hardened fat from the top.
    Transfer to smaller containers, and freeze for long-term storage.

    Celiac.com 05/27/2015 - You can thank me for this later, after this delicious homemade mustard has dazzled your hot dogs, souped-up your sausages and generally brightened your culinary life. This recipe makes about 1 cup of mustard that will keep up to a year in your refrigerator.

    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.
