  4. Celiac.com 05/05/2015 - Avocado, beans and corn help to turn quinoa into a delicious, nutritious salad that is perfect as a side or as a potluck dish. Add a bit of cilantro, some lemon juice and a few spices, and you have a winner! I enjoy the salad as is, but sometimes I like to serve it with a light vinaigrette. It’s worth noting that this is one of those flexible salads that encourages substitution and variation. You can add thing like shrimp, or chicken. You can add things like carrots or cucumber. Ingredients: 1 cup uncooked quinoa, rinsed 1 cup canned sweet corn 8-10 cherry tomatoes, halved 2 cups canned black beans, rinsed and drained 1 avocado, peeled and diced ½ small red bell pepper, roasted or streamed and sliced ½ small yellow bell pepper, roasted or streamed and sliced ⅓-½ cup of fresh cilantro, chopped 2 tablespoons olive oil 1 tablespoon fresh squeezed lime juice salt and ground black pepper to taste dash of Tajin to taste Directions: Cook quinoa as directed.

  7. I can’t say enough about the wonder of no-cook meals. When the weather heats up and you want to spend as little time as possible in a hot kitchen, easy to make salads like these are perfect. This particular salad is so delicious, refreshing and juicy, that you’ll happily welcome a few drips running down the side of your mouth. Tossing in some arugula or baby greens is a nice compliment, but the fruit stands beautifully on its own. Ingredients: 4 cups watermelon, 1 or 2-inch chunks 2 mangos, chopped 2 avocado, chopped 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved 1 red onion, thinly sliced ¼ cup mint ¼ cup olive oil 2 tablespoons white wine vinegar 1 lime, juice and zest Salt and pepper to taste Directions: In a small bowl, combine vinegar with lime juice and zest. Whisk in olive oil and season with a pinch of salt and pepper. Add sliced onions to the bowl and marinate for about 10 minutes. In the meantime, add watermelon, mango, avocado and tomato chunks to a large bowl. Toss with dressing and onions. Finish with mint, thinly sliced or chopped.
  8. Wanting a "mayonnaise" type sandwich spread, but just can't find one without all the ingredients you're having to avoid ? This is so easy, I wish I had thought of it, but you have to give credit to my spouse, who's been putting it on my homemade sandwich rolls when he makes lunch. I finally thought to ask him to show me his secret. How to Make Easy, Instant, Gluten Free "Mayonnaise" Spread from Avocado Ingredients: avocado, very ripe, whole- Don't Peel ! olive oil, gluten free, choice vinegar, gluten free (may sub lemon or lime juice) salt, sea, (iodine free option) spice of choice, optional, such as paprika Take a ripe avocado. Slice it in half, top to bottom, around the pit, and pry out the seed. You now have 2 pieces of half avocado, sitting there in its own little mixing bowl. Take a little bit of oil of your choice, such as high quality extra virgin olive oil, and put a half teaspoon or so in the little cavity where the avocado pit was. Next, put in a sprinkle of pure, gluten free apple cider vinegar or lemon juice. Sprinkle with the salt product of your choice. Add a sprinkle of smoked paprika spice or other spice ingredient, if you feel like it. Now, take a fork, and cradling the half avocado bowl in your hand, mash that sucker up inside the avocado skin, until it is well blended. You now have a very tasty green "mayonnaise spread" that is just the right amount for a sandwich, and it has no egg, no soy, no iodine, and no food processor to clean up afterwards. This makes enough for 2 sandwiches if you use up both avocado halves, and don't save the one for tomorrow.
  9. I'm a sucker for traditional guacamole. But, believe it or not, I know a number of people who don't like onions, and a few who don't like tomatoes, so making traditional guacamole is out of the question for them. If you know anyone who likes avocados, but shies away from traditional guacamole, try this. This simple and quick recipe makes a great dip to serve with tortilla chips, and has won over even my pickiest friends. Ingredients: 1-1½ ounces of Cotija cheese 1 or 2 ripe Avocados 1 lemon or lime wedge 1 or 2 sprigs of cilantro, optional 6-8 ounces of good tortilla chips Directions: Slice and dice avocados and place into a bowl. Squeeze lemon or lime juice over avocados. This will help to keep them from turning brown in the unlikely event that the bowl does not get emptied quickly. Crumble cotija cheese and gently fold together with the avocados. Garnish with cilantro sprigs. If you like cilantro, then consider chopping some up and placing it in a bowl next to the avocado/cotija mixture. Add more or less avocado or cheese to suit your taste. Serve alongside a bowl of chips and your favorite salsa.
  10. Gluten-Free and Vegan Serves 2 Ingredients: 1 large fennel bulb, slice stalks and bulbs into thin strips 1 small jicama, peeled, sliced into 1/3 inch pieces 2 cups fresh arugula 1 ripe avocado, peeled, pitted and sliced 1 large carrot, chopped Juice from 1 organic lemon 2 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil 2 Tbsp. spicy mustard 1/4 tsp. lemon zest 4 fresh cilantro leaves, finely chopped Pinch of sea salt and freshly ground black pepper 3 Tbsp. ground flax seeds 1/4 cup cashews, ground Directions: Prepare a large ice bath.

Transfer fennel to a large serving bowl; pat dry. Add jicama, avocado and carrot. Drizzle salad with lemon juice, lemon zest, oil, mustard, cilantro, sea salt and pepper. Gently toss to coat. Transfer to serving dishes. Top with ground flax seeds and cashews. Serve at room temperature. Enjoy.
  11. For the purposes of this recipe, it is important to remember that the avocado and the tomato are both fruits. A curious fact to some, simple knowledge for many. Hot summer days mean a steady of flow of delicious tomatoes and luscious avocados. Finding new ways to use both can make for a delightful culinary adventure. One way that's old hat to many gourmets, but new to me, is to turn them into a delicious, refreshing chilled soup. The result is nothing short of an homage to the marriage of two of summer's most storied fruits. Ingredients: 3 large Hass avocados - peeled and pitted 2 ripe heirloom tomatoes, peeled 1 small sweet onion, quartered 1 green bell pepper, de-seeded ¼ cup fresh lemon juice 4 cups tomato juice 1½ cups plain yogurt ⅓ cup chopped fresh chives Pinch of chopped cilantro (optional) 3 limes, wedged salt and pepper to taste Directions: Place tomatoes, avocados, onion, bell pepper, and lemon juice into a blender or food processor, and mix until smooth. Pour in 1 cup tomato juice, and blend well. Transfer mixture to a large bowl, and mix in remaining tomato juice and 1 cup yogurt. Season to taste with salt. Chill well. Serve cold in bowls with lime slices on the side. Garnish with a splash of yogurt, chives, and cilantro as desired. Add pepper to taste.
  12. Avocado is one of my all time favorite things to eat. Many people don't realize that the avocado, like the tomato is a fruit. Maybe that explains why summer is the very best time get fresh, California avocados. In addition to eating avocado as guacamole, or as a side with burgers, salads, and the like, I am always on the lookout for a new way to enjoy one of my favorite summertime treats. This version of chilled avocado soup uses avocado, chicken broth, cream, and coriander to create a rich, creamy soup that is served chilled, and which makes for a perfect dish for dinner on a warm summer evening. Ingredients: 3 Hass avocados, peeled and pitted 1 tomato, peeled, seeded and diced 1 tablespoon shallots, chopped 1 tablespoon olive oil 2 cups chicken stock 1 cup heavy cream salt and pepper to taste ¼ teaspoon ground coriander, to taste ½ cup chopped cilantro, as garnish ½ cup Cotija cheese, crumbled as garnish 4 limes, sliced Directions: Pureé 2 avocados in a blender or food processor until smooth. Reserve 1 avocado, sliced. Sauteé chopped shallots in olive oil until clear. Pour into a large mixing bowl and allow to cool. In the large mixing bowl, whisk together avocado, chicken stock, cream and shallots until smooth. Stir in salt, pepper and corriander to taste. Chill for 30 minutes. Serve chilled in cold bowls. Garnish with diced tomato, avocado slices, Cotija cheese, chopped cilantro, and lime, as desired.
  13. This version of a cold Mexican soup will refresh both your palate and your culinary repertoire. It makes great base, and holds up nicely to other flavors. Adding roasted chili or jalapeño peppers or cherry tomatoes gives it a surprising bite. For a more rustic texture, omit the blender altogether. Dice the tomatillos into small chunks, and work the avocados well with a wooden spoon or fork. This soup makes wonderful meal on a warm day. Ingredients: 3 ripe avocados 5 ripe tomatillos 3 cups chicken stock 3 tablespoons fresh cilantro, chopped 2 gloves garlic, chopped 1 ½ cups heavy cream 2 teaspoons lemon juice Salt and pepper to taste Directions: Bring a pot of water to boil and cook tomatillos for five minutes, until tender. Roughly chop and add to a blender along with diced avocado and garlic. Add chicken stock and lemon juice. Blend until smooth. Work in batches depending on the size of your blender. Transfer to a bowl and fold in cream and cilantro. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve chilled.
  14. These tacos come together so wonderfully in part because of the vibrant, contrasting colors of the salsa and shrimp. The jalapeños and chili powder transform otherwise simple shrimp tacos. You can easily control the heat by removing the seeds from the peppers or omitting a pepper, and reducing the amount of chili powder. I tend towards the spicier side, but the shrimp is equally intriguing with a sweet peppadew salsa. Ingredients: For Salsa: 1 avocado, cut into chunks 4 tomatillos, husked and roughly chopped 1 small red onion, roughly chopped 2 small jalapeños, chopped 1 clove garlic, crushed 1 teaspoon salt ⅓ cup cilantro leaves For Tacos: 1 pound medium shrimp 1 tablespoon chili powder 1 teaspoons salt 1 teaspoon pepper 2 tablespoons olive oil 8 corn tortillas Cilantro and limes for garnish Directions: Combine the onion, jalapeño, and garlic in a food processor or blender until finely chopped. Add tomatillos, avocado, cilantro, and salt and pulse 4-5 times. Transfer to a bowl and set aside. Mix olive oil, chili powder, salt and pepper in a large bowl. Add shrimp and toss until evenly coated. Add half shrimp to a large, heated pan. Cook about 2 minutes per side. Repeat with the remaining shrimp. For crispier tortillas, grill directly over stovetop until lightly charred or wrap in a damp towel and microwave for about 30 seconds. Keep tortillas covered until ready to serve. Spoon salsa onto each tortilla and top with 3-4 shrimp and cilantro. Serve 1 lime wedge for each two tacos.
  15. Before outdoor grilling becomes a casualty of summer's end, I thought I'd offer up one more great gluten-free grilling recipe, with two delicious sauces. Grilled fish is one of my favorite treats. I like to make it in the summer, as it's easy to prepare. For this recipe, I prefer swordfish, although halibut, cod, sea bass, trout, Mahi-mahi, red snapper, or any other favorite will do. Basically, this recipe will work with any white fish that will hold up to grilling. To make this recipe, first prepare the avocado salsa verde. Next, prepare the beurre blanc. Lastly, grill your favorite white fish. When fish is done, top sauce or salsa of choice, and serve with rice and your favorite steamed vegetables. Note: You may also pan fry, or even bake the fish as you like. Just make the beurre blanc sauce is warm. Beurre Blanc Sauce Ingredients: 1 to 2 shallots, chopped fine 1 cup white wine 2 ounces lemon juice 1 tablespoon heavy cream 12 tablespoons (6 ounces) cold unsalted butter, cubed Salt and white pepper, to taste Directions Combine the shallots, white wine, and lemon juice in a non-reactive saucepan over high heat and reduce to 2 tablespoons. Add the cream to the reduction. Once the liquid begins to bubble, reduce the heat to low. Add the butter, one cube at a time, whisking first on the heat and then off the heat. Keep whisking butter into the mixture until it becomes rich and creamy sauce. Add salt and white pepper to taste. Serve beurre blanc right away, or keep in a thermos and serve later. A slightly healthier, though equally delicious option for fish is Avocado salsa verde. I've even been so bold as to make them both and let the quests work it out. Salsa Verde Ingredients: 3-4 ripe avocados Juice of 1/2 lemon or 1 lime ¼ cup cilantro, chopped 2 cans Herdez salsa verde (7 ounces) Salsa Directions: Slice avocados into a large bowl. Add juice 1 lemon or 2 lime. Lightly mash and fold avocados Add Herdez salsa verde. Fold in cilantro. Mix with a fork.
  16. These grilled pork tacos are quick, easy to make, and delicious. Topped with avocado salsa verde, they are a genuine gluten-free treat. Ingredients: 3-4 boneless pork chops 12 corn tortillas 2-3 ripe avocados 1/2 cup cilantro, chopped 2 cans Herdez salsa verde 1/2 cup Cotija cheese 1 lemon or 2 limes Directions: Wrap tortillas in aluminum foil and place in warm oven. Grill pork chops according to thickness at 475-500 degrees. When pork chops are done, remove them from grill and allow to rest 5 minutes or so. Chop cilantro. Crumble cheese into a bowl. Cut pork into small cubes. Squeeze juice of 1/2 lemon or 1 lime onto the pork. Salsa Ingredients: 3-4 ripe avocados Juice of 1/2 lemon or 1 lime ¼ cup cilantro, chopped 2 cans Herdez salsa verde (7 ounces) Salsa Directions: Slice avocados into a large bowl. Add juice 1 lemon or 2 lime. Add Herdez salsa verde. Fold in cilantro. Mix with a fork. When everything is ready, remove tortillas from oven. Place two at a time on a plate. Top with meat, salsa, cheese and extra cilantro if desired. Suggestion: Serve with your favorite gluten-free beer.
  17. This recipe comes to us from Tiffany (“tarnalberry” in the Gluten-Free Forum). Ingredients: 1/3 pound cooked salad shrimp 1 small avocado 1 cup pearl or cherry tomatoes 3 tablespoons lemon juice 4-5 large red leaf lettuce leaves or 2 cups shredded spinach Directions: Rinse lettuce or spinach leaves, and chop into strips, and spin dry in a salad spinner. Chop tomatoes into halves or quarters. Peel and seed the avocado, mashing thoroughly with lemon juice. Arrange lettuce on a large plate, top with tomatoes, then shrimp, then dollop avocado dressing evenly over the plate.
