Thanks so much. I have an anorexic, celiac friend with my same food intolerances (gluten/dairy/soy) whom I will send some of these easy recipes. She never learned to cook and needs to learn to prepare lots of nutritious foods in order to gain weight and recover. So I really appreciate your posting these recipes. ;)

PS What can we substitute for soy flour in the Hearty Pumpkin Bread recipe??

burdee - on the substitution, pretty much anything. I'd go with something denser - certainly not rice or potato - but I don't know if more nut flour would be too dense... I'd probably start with nut flour, then bean, then just use more sorgum or quinoa.

Thanks, Tiffany. I'll try increasing the almond flour and maybe more of one of the others you mentioned in the recipe. :)

Sun Dried Tomato Crackers

Ingredients

-----------

1/2 cup millet flour

1/2 cup quinoa flour

1/2 cup buckwheat flour

1 cup amaranth flour

1/4 cup oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes

1 tbsp italian seasoning

1 tsp garlic powder

1 tsp onion powder

1/2 tsp salt

water, as needed

garlic salt

*note - the important flours here are the buckwheat and the amaranth. if you don't have the others, you can sub other gluten-free flours, but don't go with ones that are too heavy. brown rice would be a good option.

Directions

----------

0. preheat oven to 300F.

1. dice the sun-dried tomatoes finely.

2. in a large bowl, combine flours and spices, and mix to combine.

3. add the tomatoes and about a quarter cup of water, stir to incorporate all the water.

4. continue mixing and adding water, a teaspoon at a time, until you have a ball of dough - it should be slightly sticky to the touch, but otherwise very solid and not stick to your hands

5. in batches, roll the dough into a thin sheet (1/8th inch or less), and cut into small pieces and place on a non-stick cookie sheet.

6. sprinkle garlic salt on crackers, then put in the oven for 15 minutes.

7. turn crackers over, sprinkle on more garlic salt (patting down to make it stick), and put back in the oven for 10 minutes.

8. eat one while hot, allow the rest to cool and store in a plastic bag.

Fast Shrimp Soup (takes about 1 minute prep time, 20 minutes to cook unattended, and 3 minutes on the end - I make this when I get home late from yoga and want something healthy, high in protein, and easy to make - and that provides leftovers for lunch that can be eaten cold if I want)

Ingredients

-----------

1 box Imagine brand Chicken Broth

1 1lb bag of frozen, precooked shrimp, whatever size you like (you could use raw too, if shelled)

1 bag frozen butternut squash or yams (~12 oz)

a sprinkle of cayanne pepper, chili powder, onion powder, garlic powder, and cumin

3 tbsp sweet rice flour

Directions

----------

1. Dump everything except the sweet rice flour into a pot and put the pot on medium low so it eventually comes to a simmer. Leave for 20 minutes.

2. In a glass, combine the sweet rice flour and a bit of water (around 1/3 cup), stir to combine and then mix into the pot.

3. Stir well, and let simmer for another 3 minutes.

4. Eat!

yummy yummy yummy! Thanks!

Can you bottle the dressings to keep like regular dressings? How long do they last?

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>

Kept in the fridge, and covered, they'd probably last two or three weeks at the least, and a few months at the most. (Most of my dressings are rather heavy on the vinegar, which keeps things from growing. ;-) )

    Hi Lfortson, I assume you are on the gluten-free diet?  So no wheat, rye or barley?  That's good, but there are about 10% of celiacs who react to oats also.  So you might want to get rid of oats for several months and see if things improve. Another somewhat common food issue is dairy.  Some people can't digest lactose (cow milk sugar), and some can't digest casein (cow milk protein).  So it might help to eliminate all dairy for several months also.  Almond milk is a possible substitute
    Thank you for all of the suggestions and information.  I will see a lot of the symptoms that I have that I didn't mention listed caused by lack of certain enzymes.  I have blood tests every 3 months.
