    Ham and Lima Bean Soup (Gluten-Free)

    Reviewed and edited by a celiac disease expert.

    Ham and Lima bean soup was of my father's favorite things to eat. I remember more than a few fall days with a big pot cooking on the stove all day long. I didn't care for it much as a kid, but as I got older, this thick, hearty, soup became a favorite for cold fall days. This cousin of split pea soup makes use of ham hocks, ham, and juicy, delicious Lima beans. This recipe makes enough to serve eight to ten people, so scale accordingly. The soup is excellent after a night in the refrigerator, and also freezes and reheats well.

    Ingredients:
    3 tablespoons olive oil
    12 ounces Lima beans, small, dried
    3 large onions, chopped
    3 garlic cloves, minced
    4 carrots, sliced thick
    2 quarts of chicken broth
    2 ham hocks, or 2 cups cooked ham, cubed
    1 cup water
    3 tablespoons fresh Italian parsley, chopped fine
    1 teaspoon pepper

    Directions:
    Place lima beans in a large soup pot, and add enough water to cover by 2 in.

    Bring to a boil; boil for 2 minutes. Remove from the heat; cover and let stand for 1 hour. Drain and rinse beans, discard liquid. Rinse pot and wipe dry.

    Add olive oil to soup pot, and heat to medium-high heat. Sauté onions and garlic until clear. Stir in the broth, ham hocks, ham, carrots, water, parsley, pepper and lima beans.

    Bring ingredients to a boil. Reduce heat to low; cover and simmer for about an hour until beans are soft. Let the soup cool a bit and serve.

    Those looking for faster preparation can use canned Lima beans. Be sure to drain and rinse the beans before starting. Begin by sauteéing onions and garlic.

    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 10/23/2013 - Apparently venison is in fashion at a number of chic eateries these days, making appearances from LA to New York. Who knew?
    After my wife came home from a family visit with a venison roast in tow, I wondered how, exactly would we prepare it?
    This easy-cook roast offers a perfect answer. Just cover venison with apples and sliced onions then cooking it in the slow cooker.
    The apple imparts a wonderful flavor and aroma to the dish, and the drippings make a delicious gravy.
    Ingredients:
    1 tablespoon olive oil
    3 pounds boneless venison roast
    1 large apple, cored and quartered
