Roasted Pears with Gorgonzola (Gluten-Free)

I never get tired of turning sweet fruit into a savory dessert. Anjou and Bosc pears are easy to find this time of year. Their denser flesh makes them perfect for baking and roasting. They have a mild sweetness that allows the cheese to come through; blue cheese also works well. If you cut a small sliver off the back of the pears, they rest perfectly in the baking dish.

Roasted Pears with Gorgonzola (Gluten-Free)Ingredients:
3 ripe pears, Anjou or Bosc
Juice from 2 lemons, plus 1 teaspoon zest for garnishing
⅓ cup crumbled gorgonzola
¼ cup dried cranberries
1 cup apple cider
½ cup light brown sugar
¼ cup olive oil

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350°F.

Peel pears and slice lengthwise in half. Remove the core and seed with a melon baller or spoon. Place pears in a baking dish and toss with lemon juice then arrange core-side up.

In a small bowl, combine cheese and cranberries. Mold a spoonful of the mixture into each pear.

In the same bowl, whisk together apple cider and brown sugar until dissolved. Pour about ⅔ liquid over pears and bake for 30 minutes, basting occasionally.

Remove from the oven and serve warm, garnishing with a sprinkle of lemon zest if desired.

What do you do with the rest of the liquid and where is the olive oil used?

You may find these interesting, they're from Professor Marios Hadjivassiliou, a leading expert on gluten ataxia: http://www.acnr.co.uk/pdfs/volume2issue6/v2i6reviewart2.pdf Best of luck helping your daughter

Yep. The one that is most relevant I think is the post by Backtalk. Backtalk went back on gluten and have to a colostomy done on an emergency basis. Not fun. She regretted ignoring the gluten-free diet.

Welcome Lochella Hopefully you can draw some comfort from finally having an answer and thus starting the path to good health. Healing is going to come from your own body as you progress on the gluten free diet and it stops fighting itself and starts repairing that damage. You're still in the very early days and it's not an instant process sadly. 6 months is the usual figure bandied around for seeing significant improvement, although hopefully you'll get some signs of improvement much quicker than that. The single best thing you can do is to eat good simple whole foods and make sure absolutely no gluten gets into your diet. There's some tips here: With stomach pains peppermint tea is my go to drink. Avoiding caffeine seems to help as well as its rough on digestion at the best of times. This may be a time to ease up on alcohol as well and consider dropping dairy, many find they're lactose intolerant but this can correct itself in time. You will find lots of good info, advice and support here, I hope the community is of help to you as it was to me. Best of luck!

I recently got diagnosed with Celiac disease I must of had it my whole life. I'm 35 I've always had severe stomach problems, in and out of hospitals and misdiagnosed until now. My small intestine is severely damaged I'm now waiting to see a dietitian and my specialist wants to see me again in 2 weeks. How do some of you deal with the pain of the healing process and what helps you? I'm in so much pain?
