Hi guys-

I have been starting to cook more made from scratch meals. Its only my husband and I and I do a lot of marinated chickens but I am missing side dish ideas. If you guys would post some of your ideas and recipes that would be great.

I am looking for sauce recipes--like garlic herb, or butter herb, parm sauces.

I would love to hear any great main dishes you might have as well.

I am starting to enjoy it and I am open to all sorts of ideas. We are only gluten-free free if that helps. I know this board is filled with some great cooks and people who are very skilled at converting recipes over--I am sadly not one of those people. So please help me!!!!!

Thanks

I make a very easy parmesan/alfredo sauce for my daughter. Melt butter in a pan, add parmesan cheese, heavy cream (we're calorie boosting for her, you could sub milk), garlic powder (or fresh minced) and a dash of pepper. I don't measure (which is unlike me) because it's so easy, I just do it to taste. You can pair this with pasta, pour it over chicken, or you could make a fettucine alfredo with chicken and broccoli. I toss the pasta in the pan so it's well coated with the sauce.

I love http://crockpot365.blogspot.com/ for crockpot recipes. The author's daughter has celiac so all (except maybe a handful) are gluten free. There are 366 recipes from 2008, and she continues to post some recipes in 2009. We love the maple dijon chicken.

I will try to think of some other ideas. Do you like eggplant?

check out '30 minute meal' type recipe books, they have a lot of great, easy ideas.

If you can have cream, it's a great sauce builder since it thickens as it heats. Other gluten-free ways to a nice thick sauces include cornstarch or arrowroot powder (definitely for the cornstarch make a 'slurry' first with a little liquid, then mix in with your sauce).

In grad school I started doing mustard chicken with fresh green beans, I would put milk, mustard and some cracked black pepper in a pan, add slightly pounded chicken breast, add the beans when I turned the chicken over, then thicken the sauce at the end (after taking out the chicken & beans) if you like. Can serve with any starch side, I usually did rice.

Have fun exploring!

I know this is really late, but there is a gluten free cooking course offered TONIGHT at our Wegmans! Maybe they will have it again.

We normally buy marinades and salad dressings to do that sort of stuff.

We really need the cooking class!

You can make really easy pan sauces for any sauted meat, in a mix of olive oil and a bit of butter for flavour (I mostly saute thin slices of chicken, or slices of pork tenderloin that I have pounded thin) . Here are a few that I like.

1/2 cup chicken stock (store bought is OK)

lemon juice from 1/2 a lemon

1 Tbsp capers

1 Tbsp cold butter (add to pan, off the heat, once the above ingredients have slightly reduced, about 2-3 minutes tops)

1/4 cup chicken stock

1/4 cup masala wine

1/4 cup whipping cream

Add to hot pan, scrape bits off of bottom and reduce until a bit thicker

1/2 cup chicken stock

2 Tbsp mango chutney

1 Tbsp cold butter (as above)

I would serve any of the above with roasted potatoes (toss in olive oil, s&p and roast at 425F for about 20-30 minutes) and a simple steamed vegetable.

You can do some really simple things to liven up vegetables. I like zucchini, sliced thin, and sauted with garlic then at the end (on a few minutes tops) a squeeze of fresh lemon and some torn leaves of fresh basil.

Asparagus is excellent roasted with olive oil, s&p in a hot oven (425F) for about 5 minutes then tossed with a splash of balsamic vinegar and a shaving of parmesan cheese.

Heavenly. Many vegetables are excellent roasted: cauliflower, broccoli (keep an eye on this though as the end can burn), carrots, parsnips, beets, sweet potatoes, eggplant, zucchini, peppers, brussels sprouts. Just toss them with some olive oil, salt and pepper and they are simple but very good.

I like to do brussels sprouts by slicing them thin (this can be done in the food processor). I start by toasting chopped hazelnuts, remove them from the pan. Add some oil and throw in the brussels sprouts, with some salt and pepper and saute for about 5 minutes or till they don't look raw. Toss the nuts on and a bit of maple syrup and they are ready to eat.

Hope you find some of this helpful.

most traditional sauce recipes are already gluten-free (at least the ones not skimping on time by adding thickeners)

as for main dishes, again, vegetable, meat products, dairy products, they are gluten-free

as for things like bread crumbs -- gluten-free flour works well in many cases, so do corn flake (or other flake cereals), also, a great use for gluten-free bread after its even to dry to toast -- gluten-free bread crumbs

    • Hi guys, I had a really bad reaction to a certain brand of kefir yesterday. The reaction was neurological and I think it must have been an accidental glutening or an allergic reaction to an additive. The problem is I don’t know which ingredient had caused it. I was wondering if anyone has experienced a negative reaction to any of the following ingredients:      Locust bean gum E410 Apricot puree (further unspecified) Glucose fructose syrup Citric acid E330 Sodium citrate E331 Paprika extract E160c   I haven't listed the rest of the ingredients because they seem to be ok: e.g. milk, sugar.  Thanks
    • ennis how do you test for Candida overgrowth did I have to see a functional doctor or do medical doctors test. It would seem like a plausible  explanation to my symptoms. 
    • Hello everyone.    Ive been diagnosed with celiac for about 4 years now. It's been a rough road but I feel like I've gotten as good as I can get with eliminating gluten completely from my diet.    I am an undergraduate student with a driven passion to become a nurse (I'm a guy, I know). I love the field and can't wait to help people every day.   As some of you may know, the nursing curriculum is extremely intense. I have an very strict routine and schedule where I can handle the rigor of my classes, work, and fitness (I am really into health and fitness, it's the best release from the stresses induced from school. I get 6 hours of sleep on the dot and manage to work, volunteer, study, and eat decently well. I love my life when it's on this routine and am so happy and social with people around me. I'm making progress, I'm moving forward, making something of my life.    But lately I've been suffering. I've been getting sick a lot more often from what seems to be random uncontrollable cross contamination from various things. When I get sick, my routine gets all messed up, I fall off my schedule, and things start going downhill. I like to call it the "celiac rut" I get stuck in. When I'm sick I can't work out, without working out I get extremely stressed and can't sleep. Without sleep I can't focus on my school and you know, the slippery slope that pretty much leads to lots of depression and anxiety.    This. Absolutely. Sucks. I fall behind in school and have trouble focusing on my priorities because I need more sleep to heal, and I can't go to class or the gym when I'm throwing up or spending hours on the toilet. Plus the mental symptoms turn me into an angry antisocial gluten monster. So that's always fun.   I really don't know how to manage this. I feel like at this rate I won't be able to keep up with my daily life. I physically can not handle the lifestyle I have when I get sick, and it piles up because when I get better I'm like weeks behind in material in my classes.    I am am normally a super happy outgoing guy, I love being the person I truly am. But gluten is singlehandedly tearing my life apart and the depression is starting to take it's toll.    I honestly dont know what to get out of posting this. I just hope that someone has some sort of trick or secret to get through this awful "celiac rut."
    • Hello, I have the same issue with the hair loss a few months after going gluten free, I have been getting the b12 shot and was also told to take Vit D and Calcium, Also told it was because my guts are still not happy after all i put them thru, It's very upsetting losing the amount of hair I have, my right side of my head is about 65% thinner then the left...Was told it see a Diet person right away. 
    • There is sort of a detox/withdrawal thing for the first few weeks for most. Keep a food diary, often after a glutening a new intolerance will creep up for awhile. Sort of your body associating another food with gluten, and or it just being picky while damaged. Write down everything you eat, how you fix it, seasonings etc. Change up the diet, and look for patterns.  My own gut is being picky today and had D after 2 meals so I am rotating up and narrowing down the culprit tomorrow myself....only see 4 common things in my food dairy.
