Tonight I have my home-made minestrone (which should never contain pasta, IMO!) with: butternut, zucchini, rainbow chard, mushrooms, leeks, romaine, tomatoes, carrots, celery, fennel, and chunks of chicken. And I have finally made my first loaf of coconut bread, so I will have some toasted with olive oil and basil for garnish!

(Vegetable soup is my comfort food. Weird, I know.)


Hashimoto's thyroiditis and Grave's disease (2011). It must have been a Black Friday.

Intestinal dysbiosis. Suspected damage to my vili (2012). NCGS according to my dermatologist upon seeing my post-wheat rash.

Gluten-free. Sept 2012.

Canola, almonds, soy = evil.

Grain-free, legume-free. December 2012.

No peanuts and tree nuts. February 2013.

Erb-Duchenne palsy from birth trauma.

My body is trying to kill me.

and the hubster would like to know --what's the creamy garlic enchiladas all about? he is interested.

Good Morning All-

What a wonderful night -- first family gathering (yep they are always at our house -- long before food was an issue) this year that I wasn't sick, tired, bloated or in pain for the whole event :D

LOL -- no ski daddy here -- except my hubby -- my Dad is the farthest thing from sporty that you can get -- he is a wonderful musician / conductor that led the largest choral concerts in San Diego for many years. He's not handy either -- thus this sporty chick went off on her own adventures as a kid when she wasn't fixing things around the house for everyone else ;) He is, however, a strong, healthy world traveler (wish I did have his genes - I'm adopted) that enjoys good food -- thankfully my hubby and kids all know how to cook so when I fall short on any meal there are plenty hands to pick up the prep. Yesterday I made everything myself - except for shredding a pork roast and grating the mountain of cheese needed for a large quantity of enchiladas.

So Creamy Garlic Enchiladas got their base in a pre-dx Enchiladas Verdes recipe a friend of mine concocted about 25 years ago. The basis for that recipe was a can of green enchilada sauce which is doctored to taste heavenly -- found out very quickly after dx that the brand I used had gluten and tried other brands of sauce, but they just didn't taste the same. So back to kitchen chemistry I went because this family can not live without enchiladas. There were a few good versions, but my family says these are the best yet...I have not tasted this exact recipe, but did have some rice tortilla enchiladas with a similar garlic sauce last year while trialing dairy -- family assures this is the best:

Creamy Garlic Enchiladas

  • Corn Tortillas - Rice work too, but corn are better
  • Jack Cheese - about a pound for a single pan
  • Any meat -- Turkey, Chicken, Pork -- leftovers work great. You can also use shirmp, crab.
  • Sauce
  • Diced Tomato and Green Onion for garnish on top

Yesterday I used an inexpensive pork roast -- had pork roast for dinner on Friday and just cooked extra meat then.

In blender:

1 and 1/2 Cup Cream

4 or 5 Cloves Garlic

Handful Fresh Cilantro

1/4 Cup Green Salsa (any brand)

1/4 Cup Sugar

Salt and Fresh Ground Black Pepper

Blend until well mixed - careful not to go too long or you'll have whipped cream - if it does thicken a bit too much just add a bit of water to thin. Thick is fine, just don't want "whip cream peaks" -- it should still laddle or pour.

Assemble in rectangular baking dish -- I use three different sizes depending on the crowd coming. If this is the main entree I make 2-3 per person -- if it is a side dish 1-2 per person. I live with my hubby and two teen/young adult men -- I make 4 each for them so there'll will be a few leftover. My Mom and Sister generally eat 2 each.

  • In front of you is a rectangular pan, a bowl of grated cheese and a bowl of meat and the sauce
  • Heat the tortillas in a plastic bag in the microwave OR steam them in a covered sauce pot on the stove.
  • Pour or laddle enough sauce to lightly cover the pan then start rolling
  • One tortilla...small amount of meat along with a small amount of cheese - Roll as tight as possible..can be frustrating, but easy to learn -- keep rolling until the last enchilada holds them all in place.
  • Pour sauce over the tortillas -- you don't use it all...I pour or laddle along the center - leaving the ends kinda dry
  • Cover with more grated cheese
  • Sprinkle with diced tomato, green onion and black pepper

Bake for 20-25 minutes at 350 -- these can be made up to a day ahead and then baked when ready. If they've been in the frig you may need more baking time -- they should be kinda bubbly and just starting to tan.

These can be made with just garlic, cream and black pepper for those with nightshade issues -- no way for dairy free right now, but I'm working on it ;)

Edited to add -- yes the Bacon Jam is indeed redunkulous and shall now be known as Redunkulous Bacon Jam in our home -- everyone devoured the Bacon Jam on Crackers and left the pour bowl of Spinach Dip feeling very lonely -- also sent a teeny-tiny tupperware of RBJ home with each family member. They are eternally grateful to you LT2 -- your ears must have been bright red about 5pm PST yesterday - Thanks again!

- Symptoms from 2001, maybe before. Across 20+ years, these have included, vomiting, D, migraines, headaches, recurrent miscarriage, inflammation problems (failure to heal from injuries) brain fog, anxiety and more!

- Elimination diet using Atkins, 2003 – excluded wheat, caffeine, quorn. 2005, excluded sesame, alcohol

- Started diagnosis route April 2012, blood tests, endoscopy – said negative, gluten challenge, clearly something very wrong, had to stop after 3 weeks.

- Gluten Free, August 2012, Corn Free, September 2012. Removed most processed gluten free foods.

- Genetic testing, December 2012 – negative – Diagnosis – Non Celiac Gluten Intolerance (NCGI)

- Elimination diet, January 2013 – all of the above plus dairy, legumes, all grains, sugar, additives, white potatoes, soy. Reintroducing sloooowly now. Health improving.

Karen, please help! That guy is scaring me.

IH, obviously great minds are thinking alike tonight! I, too, love lamb. I made a batch of the delicious sauce and about 1/3 of it is already in my gut (it didn't quite make it to the lamb). I am a condiment and sauce animal! :lol:

My baby cousin who was about 1 1/2 at the time spit out bacon and wouldn't try it again. I promptly took the opportunity to point out to my husband that it is his blood relation, not mine. Seriously, who spits bacon out?
