Tomato paste or powder, usually contains wheat which is probably in the tomato sauce.
The brand that I use (Hunts-Wesson) is made by Conagra foods and they will clearly list gluten in their ingredient lists if present. I have never seen gluten listed in their tomato sauce.

Velvet Brownies

2/3 cup gluten-free flour mix

1/3 cup cocoa powder

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon salt

2 egg whites

1 egg

3/4 cup sugar

6 tablepoons baby food pear or pea puree or unsweetened applesauce (I tried the recipe with pear puree).

2 tablespoons vegetable oil

1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla

Optional: 1 tablespoon chopped peacans, walnuts, or macadamia nutes.

Preheat oven to 350. Spray an 8"x8" pan with vegetable oil spray (I just used wax paper and olive oil). In a measuring cup, combine the flour mix, cocoa, cinnamon, and salt. In a mixing bowl, whisk the egg whites and egg slightly. Add the sugar, puree, oil, and vanilla and wisk until blended, but don't overbeat. Pour into the prepared pan and sprinkle on the nuts (if used). Bake until set and a tester comes out clean, about 25 minutes (I'd go a few minutues longer, like 27). Cool before cutting into 2" squares. Makes 16 brownies.

From, "The Gluten-free Gourmet, Cooks Fast and Healthy" by Bette Hagman p.140.

Just wanted to say that I made these to take to a church function for my gluten-free husband and son. The teenagers finished them off when they came in the room. (None of the teens at church are even familiar with a gluten-free diet) I always take it as a compliment when people who can eat gluten pig out on something gluten-free. I used unsweetened applesause for the recipe. The little 4oz snack cups you can buy for lunches are just the right amount. :) kendra

Thanks, I am still very shaken up from the whole thing. I am very nervous about eating now. I feel like food is poison right now.

I cut the beets raw to save a step in cooking. A food processor would work nicely :)

Chicken and Peach Salsa

1-2 cups of water

1 package of chicken cut up for a stir fry

5 peaches, diced

1 yellow pepper, diced

1 red onion, diced

2-3 cloves of garlic

cilantro leaves to taste

optional (1 Tablespoon fresh lime juice)

pepper to taste

Cook chicken, garlic, and 1/2 of the red onion in the water until the chicken is done. I like to let the meat sit in the juices for a while. Place all other ingredients including the other 1/2 of the red onion in a bowl. Mix cooked ingredients with uncooked ingredients. Serve.

This is actually quite good! I got this idea from the Paleo Diet book.

Those cookies look good! I have a few recipes that I made up:

Quick and Easy Stove Top Meatloaf

Extra lean hamburger

1/2 - 1 cup Heniz ketchup

1 onion, diced

2-3 cloves of garlic, minced

pepper

1 egg

Mix everything together in a wok, deep frying pan, or a large pot except ketchup. Add ketchup later on to allow moisture. Cook until done.

Yummy Steak

3-4 cups of water

3-4 1/2 inch steaks

1 onion, diced

2-3 cloves of garlic, minced

1/2 - 1 cup Heniz Chicken and Rib BBQ sauce or your favorite BBQ sauce

Cook steak, water, onion, and garlic in a wok or a large pot on high heat until the water is almost gone. Add BBQ sauce and cook for several minutes.

Here is a recipe that I made up last night:

Chicken Casserole

3 cups of water

3/4 - 1 cup of basmati rice

2-3 chicken breasts

1 onion

Mrs. Dash Original to taste

1/2 cup Heniz Chicken and Rib BBQ sauce or your favorite BBQ sauce

Cook chicken, onion, and spices in water in a wok or large pot on high for at least 10 minutes. Add rice and bbq sauce and cook until rice is done. If you have a wok, you may want to add some more BBQ sauce after the rice is done and sort of fry the rice and chicken. Enjoy.

I'm going to to try and remember what I did. I made this today and it was very yummy.

Rock Soup

Extra lean hambuger (1 smallish package)

about 7-8 cups of water

1/4 cup white vinegar

1/2 cup of rice

vegetables whatever you can find... This is what I found:

2-3 cups of baby carrots, bite size (or 2-3 large carrots)

3-4 celery sticks, diced

2 potatoes, bite size

5 green onions, diced

1 cup, frozen baby corn, bite size

spices hmmmm, I just sort of threw stuff in, so I will put down what I think will taste good:

1 teaspoon cayeene pepper

1-2 teaspoons tumeric

1/4-1/2 teaspoon cumin

1/4-1/2 teaspoon oregano

1 teaspoon crushed red peppers (or just add more cayeene pepper if you don't have this)

2 Mc Cormick Beef brouillion cubes (or substitute water with broth)

2 tablespoons brown sugar

salt and pepper to taste

1-2 teaspoons crushed red chilis (optional)

1/4 teaspoon garlic powder (optional)

Put hamburger, garlic, and onion in a large pot or wok and cook until hamburger is browned. Throw everything else in execpt rice and cook for a while. Add in rice, and cook until rice is done and vegetables are soft.

Have fun! I did :)

Dunno if anyone else will like this, just something I've made up a few times. The amounts are whatever suits your tatse.

Chop chicken breast into bite size pieces or strips. Then chop up celerey, capsicum and poatato. Cook in a pan. At the pour some tomato paste or sauce over and stir through. If you use tomato paste I reccomend thining it down with a little a water it enhances the flavour.

You can also add garlic and onion if you want.

Thank you so much Carrie! I am very fortunate, that my family will eat anything I put on the table. Most of the time, I don't even mention Gluten free. We have enjoyed your chili recipe several times.
