Ginger Pumpkin Cookies

2 cups sweet rice flour

1/2 cup montina flour

1/2 cup tapioca flour

1 tsp cream of tartar

2 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp salt

2 tsp ginger

2 tsp cinnamon

1/3 cup canola oil

1 small can pureed pumpkin

1 cup agave

Combine wet ingredients together.

Combine dry ingredients together.

Mix wet and dry ingredients until just combines.

Drop onto four cookie sheets (and pat down a bit).

Cook in a 350 oven for 20-30 minutes. (Check for doneness.)

I just made these for a halloween party tonight, and they're tasty! I modified them off of a ginger spice cookie recipe, and change the flours called for as I'm trying to find more flours that my husband will eat. (He's not so fond of the gluten-free flours.) They don't look cooked through, but there's no egg, and they really do get cooked through, they just end up chewy in the center with a bit of crunchiness on the outside. Tasty! And sweet!

Thanks for the new recipe. Sounds yummy, but I need to ask what is 'agave'? :blink:

It's agave nectar - an all natural sweet syrup from a Mexican plant. It's low glycermic and really sweet, so you need less than you would sugar. I use it in all my sweet baking, and also to sweeten hot chocolate. It avoids the sugar rush/crash, but tastes great. I can't stand the bitterness of fake sugar substitutes.

Fermented agave has another name - tequila. :)

Yep. So if you don't have any, or don't want to deal with the cost (ouch! not cheap!) you can either use honey (a strong honey would be ok in this recipe), or sugar, but use a bit more sugar than a cup, maybe 1 1/3 cups or so, unless you don't mind pumpkin straight up! ;-)

tarnalberry - thanks for the great recipes!

Anyone - I make pumpkin bread during the holidays. It is homemade and of course uses regular flour. It is a sweet bread so I'm wondering which gluten-free flour would be best to try. There seem to be several and since they are expensive I dont' want to get four of them to experiment if others know which might work best. I don't really bake except during the holidays so I would only need the flour for the bread and also to make a pie crust for pecan pie. What gluten-free flour should I try? Thanks for any tips you can offer. :D

ps.s I just heard from Anna of Breads from Anna (think that's right) and she is introducing a new easy gluten-free pie crust soon. She was going to have it for Thanksgiving but some ingredient shipment was held up due to hurricane. Anyway, it should be available for Christmas at the latest. I'm so happy - I'm not making my pies for thanksgiving now and I'll be able to use Anna's crust for Christmas. ;)

:P Tiffany,

Thanks for all the recipes, not only gluten free, but healthy!!! It is so easy to still be gluten free and eating a totally unhealthy diet. I am trying to push more of the raw and just whole food ingredients. But, I also have a massive sweet tooth. I loooovvved your raw brownie recipe, it is delicious!!! I ignored your part about using a food processor and of course burnt out my blender, but it was a good excuse to finally get a real food processor. :D

Thanks,

Bette

For the pumpkin bread, you can really get away with a lot because the pumpkin itself has a fairly strong flavor, there's a fair amount of sugar, and there's plenty of spices. I like using some soy flour in mine (no more than 1/5 of the flour), and also like using nut flours and bean flours for those sorts of heartier breads. Make sure at least half of the flour is a lighter flour, like brown rice or amaranth or quinoa. Quinoa has a unique taste, however, that may or may not be liked by those eating the bread. Millet flour is more neutral in taste than that.

As for the pie - if you're willing to go crumb crust for a pumpkin (or apple) pie, you can take your pumpkin bread, fully cooked, slice it thinly, toast it in the oven until it's stale/dry, then process bits in a food processor to produce crumbs. Mix with enough liquid (I like apple sauce, but a bit of oil/butter and a milk/milk substitute would work too) to get it to press into the bottom of the pie pan, and put the pie filling on top!

Oh my! I'm not really into cooking (yet) so I found a pie crust mix at Whole Foods I'm going to try for my pecan pies. But I will get the soy and millet flours and experiment with my pumpkin bread. So I think that means 1/5 of the flour will be soy and the remianing 4/5 of the flour can be millet. Should be interesting to see how it turns out. Thanks!

Brown and Wild Rice Savory Mushroom Stuffing

Ingredients

-----------

1 cup Lundberg Farms Wild Blend Rice (you can substitute brown rice, or your own mix of brown and wild rice, but this mix works best of the variations I've tried so far, definitely do not do all white rice)

1/3 cup arborio rice (risotto)

3 medium carrots

3 stalks celery

1 medium onion

2/3 pound mushrooms (chanterelles are very good here, as are cremini's (or portabellos), plain white wouldn't be the same)

3 tbsp olive oil

4 cups (or more) chicken or vegetable broth

2 tsp italian spices (or 1/2 tsp each basil, oregano, thyme, rosemary)

1 tsp salt

1/2 tsp ground sage

1/4 tsp majoram

pinch cumin (optional)

Directions

----------

1. Finely dice the carrots, celery, onion, and mushroom.

2. Heat a 6 quart (or so) pot on the stove, then add the olive oil.

3. Add the carrots, celery, onion, and mushroom, and stir to coat.

4. Continue cooking, on medium high heat, stirring often, until the onions turn transluscent.

5. Add the rices, and stir to coat further, for a minute or so.

6. Add enough broth to just cover the ingredients, and turn down to a simmer.

7. Continue to cook just like risotto - stirring almost continuously (no less than every three or four minutes), and adding broth, a half cup at a time.

8. After 30 minutes, add the spices.

9. Continue adding broth, even after the four cups, if the rice is not done, but is very thick and needs more liquid to keep from burning at the bottom. And keep stirring!

10. When the rice is cooked through, turn off the heat and serve.

    • Yeah someone else said a few weeks ago that there local manger was very antimate that NONE of their shakes with celiac safe....as pointed out if one shake has gluten.....they use the same shake mixing machine...so THEY ALL will have gluten at that facility.....
    • I just saw your profile says thalassemia. My doc blames part of the microcytic anemia on thalassemia trait even though all my thalassemia gene tests have come back negative (and I don't have the right ethnic background). In a way I am hoping it is a FODMAP (carbohydrate) sensitivity instead of a gluten allergy because at least with the FODMAP you just have to stay low FODMAP and don't have to worry about crumbs and gluten cross-contamination like with celiac. I will check back in in 6 months once I see whether there are specific foods I can't eat or if it really does come down to gluten  Thanks for your support!!
    • Good for you for trying to manage your health.  My only suggestion would be to find another doctor.  Obviously, he does not even follow standard recommendations for screening.  I would worry that he overlooks other things too.  It never hurts to get a second opinion.  Second opinions have saved my family from unwanted surgeries and incorrect treatment.   The IgA (Immunoglobulin A) Test, in the case of celiac disease testing,  is a control test.  If he had ordered it, you would have known if the results are valid or not.  Now you are left in diagnostic Limboland.  Again, my TTG was negative it has never been positive even in follow-up testing.   You can go gluten free for life.  My hubby did that 17 years ago some 12 years prior to my diagnosis (per the advice of his GP and my my allergist).  But he will be the first to tell you that I get way more support from family, friends and medical. I wish you well!  
    • Okay so I had a peanut butter milkshake from steak n shake last night. I'm nearly positive that every thing else I've had recently has been gluten free. I have been feeling like my stomach is acting up a bit lately, but after this milkshake it is so much more intense. I considered maybe I'm sensitive to dairy too, but in the last few days  I've had plenty of dairy that didn't make me react  like this. The steak n shake website didn't list any real specifics on ingredients for milkshakes. I read in other forums that some shakes use a malt mix or syrup ( which I didn't see mentioned on the site), but it is corn based. I called the my local steak n shake and the guy said he is "pretty sure" it's corn based.  I called the customer service line and they couldn't tell me if it was gluten free or not. I found ONE listing on a website that said all shakes were gluten free expect peanut butter and one other flavor. I know this seems like a lot for one shake, but I'm so tired of not knowing what makes me sick. Has anyone else had an experience with this or has anymore knowledge about steak and shakes products?
    • So my tTG-IgA result came back negative. Doc did not do the total IgA so I could be in the 2% false negative. However my ferritin continues to fall (at 25 now so getting borderline to need another iron infusion, 6 months ago it was 50) and reflux was keeping me up at night so after the blood test I went on a gluten free and low FODMAP diet. 6 days later my reflux is gone! I had no idea it could work that quickly. I still feel like there is a lump in my esophagus and have a bit of difficulty swallowing (think I still have irritation in that area) but no more acid and regurgitation! Also have not had a single episode of gas or urgency or days with 8 BMs.  It has only been 6 days so maybe I am just having a good spell but am going to continue gluten free and low FODMAP for a month and then see if there are any FODMAP foods I can eat (but not gluten unless my doc decides I should have a biopsy) (I miss pears and apples). I guess the real test is to see if my ferritin levels start to go up-testing again in 6 months. The diet is very restrictive but worth it if it gets rid of the reflux and other symptoms. BTW post-menopausal (and before that I had an IUD for 10 years TMI) so no periods to blame for chronic microcytic/hypochromic anemia. Doc says "that's normal for you, you just don't absorb iron very well".
