Report This Post (To report rule violations to admin) My First Gluten Free Meal in Gluten-Free Recipes & Cooking Tips Posted August 2, 2008 So, I am surprised - today is DAY #1 Gluten Free, and up until dinner I had done pretty simple stuff - just your everyday regular gluten-free stuff, but by early evening I was starving because I ate significantly less b/c of the less-than-gluten-free-friendly environment I was in. So, I stopped at Kroger (who now has a pretty nice "market" section that contains gluten free, wheat free, and organic type foods) ~ and ofcourse, the un-glutened o'natural veggies and chicken found at any grocery store So I got creative - and made pasta and topped with chicken, fresh grilled veggies, and diced tomatoes with the juice (because I wasn't quite sure what else I could use to give it moisture) - then I topped it with some Cavenders seasoning (which is Gluten FREE - I was a bit thrown off by an ingredient called "Glutamate" ~ which is actually an amino acid, and unrelated to Gluten.) We'll call my concoction Jessica's gluten-free Special #1 (HAHA) Ancient Harvest Quinoa Gluten Free Pasta 1 Chicken Kabob (Chicken Chunks, Yellow Pepper, Green Pepper Onion, & Tomato) Fresh Green Beans, Seasoned (cut into halves) 1 small can chunk tomatos (with the juice) Cavenders Greek Seasoning to Taste 1 TBS Olive Oil Instructions: Put oil in pan, heat, and add chicken kabob ingredients and fresh green bean halves - cook thoroughly, then add chunk tomato/juice and simmer In seperate pot, boil water and add pasta - cook 6 to 9 minutes Drain pasta. Serve simmered ingredients over the pasta (top with Cavender's greek seasoning) Ok, so I am sure there is much I can do to improve this - because the pasta itself lacked flavor, but that's okay... all in all it was pretty good !!
