    Directions:
    Heat oven to 250°F. 

    Stir together zucchini and ¼ teaspoon of the salt in a large wire-mesh strainer set over a large bowl. 

    Let stand until zucchini has released water, about 15 minutes. Discard liquid. 

    Place zucchini in a kitchen towel, and squeeze to remove excess water. Add zucchini to a large dry bowl.

    Add potato starch, Parmesan, eggs, and garlic to bowl with zucchini; stir until combined.

    Heat 1 tablespoon of the olive oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium. 

    Add 1 heaping tablespoon zucchini mixture to skillet, and use a spoon to flatten into a 3-inch round. 

    Repeat to make more fritters. 

    Cook about 2 minutes, until golden brown and slightly crisp. 

    Flip and cook another minute or so, until bottom side is crisp and golden. 

    Place cooked fritters on a large baking sheet lined with a wire rack.

    Move rack to a warm, 250°F, oven.

    Working in batches, cook the remaining fritters. Place on rack as you go.

    When done, sprinkle cooked fritters with remaining ½ teaspoon salt. 

    Top with sour cream and chives, and serve warm.

    I’m hard pressed to find any food that isn’t made better by adding melted cheese. Gratins are a great way to serve up a variety of vegetable and traditional gratins, which typically contain breadcrumbs and flour, are easily adaptable to better suit a gluten-free diet. I love dishes that encourage variation.
    I use sharp cheddar and Parmesan because the saltiness mingles with the sweet tomatoes, and melts into bites of dichotomous perfection. Experiment with different cheeses to explore different flavor combinations. A more sophisticated version might include smoked Gouda or creamy butternut squash.

    Celiac.com 10/08/2015 - Want a light, healthy gluten-free vegetarian lunch that's tasty and offers a departure from a more standard noodle dish? Try this lovely Asian-style salad made with spiral or long julienne zucchini "noodles."
    Some people make this with raw zucchini, but that's hard to digest, so I blanche the zucchini noodles first.
    Ingredients:
    3 to 4 medium zucchini, spiral cut or long thin strips 1 cup carrot, grated 2 green onions, thin diagonal slices ½ teaspoon salt 1½ cups thinly sliced and roughly chopped red cabbage ½ large red bell pepper, sliced thin and cut into 1-inch segments ½ cup cilantro, chopped Dressing:

    Celiac.com 06/07/2016 - Where are all my Mexican food lovers? This one is especially for you. These Mexican stuffed zucchini boats are a perfect gluten-free party dish. You can cut them up into smaller pieces and serve them as a tray snack that is nutritious and protein packed. I don't know about you but I love when I go to a party and there are plates of healthy items to snack on. I never feel good filling up on just potato chips and veggie sticks. Junk food makes you feel pretty junky.
    I really enjoy hosting get togethers at my house. Since I am a mom of three "kids" and am a grandmother as well, I tend to have a full house and like to make healthy...
