    Summertime Guacamole (Gluten-Free)

    Reviewed and edited by a celiac disease expert.

    Okay, so pretty much all guacamole is naturally gluten free. Still, guacamole is one of the summertime treats that fuel California, and many other lucky places. High in protein, vitamins, and beneficial oils, and blessed with a wonderful rich flavor, avocados are one of earth's true superfoods. This guacamole will keep folks coming back for more.

    Ingredients:
    3-4 ripe avocados
    1 lemon or 2 limes
    ¼ cup cilantro, chopped
    ¼ cup sweet onion, chopped (optional)

    When it comes to guacamole ingredients, less is more. I generally only use avocado and lime or lemon in my guacamole.

    I never put tomatoes in guacamole, as the acidity works against the avocado. The same is true of onion. I don't use it in guacamole. I simply serve salsa that includes onion and tomato along side the guacamole, so guests can mix as they like. That way they may mix tomatoes and onions in the salsa with the guacamole, or simply savor the rich, full taste of the avocado.

    Directions:
    Slice avocados in half and spoon flesh into a large bowl. Discard pits and skin. Mash with a fork and fold, or, for chunkier guacamole, simply run a thin bread knife through the avocados in multiple directions and fold gently until desired mixture is reached.

    Serve with chips, tomato salsa, and/or green chili salsa.

    Tip: Mix guacamole with Herdez salsa verde and cilantro and serve with any white fish. Yum!

    I'm just beginning my research into this I have been eating gluten-free for at least 2 years with a few missteps. But my Prometheus Celiac Genetics blood test came back extremely HIGH. So I have work to do . Guess the vit/min I take will have to be checked more closely.

    Grilled fish is one of my favorite treats. I like to make it in the summer, as it's easy to prepare. For this recipe, I prefer swordfish, although halibut, cod, sea bass, trout,

    This is a really versatile recipe for steak. The marinade is a quick go-to; it doesn’t take long for the meat to take on great flavor. You’ll find the steak goes great in tacos, in a salad atop of a hearty bed of greens like arugula or spinach, alongside just a few slices of tomatoes, and especially as the star of its own solo show.

    Fish tacos have gained a large and growing following over the last few decades. You can find them featured at numerous taquerias and Mexican restaurants. Too often, though, they are coated in batter and so off limits to people with celiac disease and gluten-sensitivity. After watching so many of my friends writhe in culinary ecstasy as they enjoyed their fish tacos, while I was...

    No. I agree with what Scott said.  So much is not true in this post.
