We think that the trick to an excellent stew is a lot of beef flavour – we are from Alberta after all! With a triple hit of beef stew meat, beef stock, and beef bouillon, this recipe fits the bill. Oh, and carrots – for some reason I love lots of carrots in stew. In honour of St. Patrick’s Day, we decided to try making gluten free bread bowls. Our Crusty Bread recipe was just the right size and held up well!
Once you have this around for a while you’ll wonder what you did without it. This onion soup mix is great to use for a quick cup-of-soup, for dips, a rub for meats, or a base for sauces, soups, stews, and gravies. Stored in an airtight jar, it will last for at least a month.
Below you will find a recipe for the onion soup mix as well as some suggested ways to put it to good use.
Marinated in a honey-orange marinade, this chicken comes out of the oven soft, tender, and juicy. The zest in the marinade really adds the flavour of oranges to the dish which also has a hint of spice from the chili pepper and sweetness from the honey. Goes well with a tossed salad, or for something heartier, pair it with rice.
This takes a bit of time to make but it’s worth it in the end. You’ll end up with a bowl of savory homemade warmth.It’s a lighter soup, so you may want to serve it for lunch or pair it with biscuits, a salad, or gf panini for dinner. It also freezes and reheats well, so make extra. And if you use low sodium broth, no salt added tomatoes and tomato sauce, you can cut the amount of salt in this considerably.
Panini is the perfect way to eat gluten free bread and this is one of our favorites. The havarti is mild enough to let the taste of the turkey shine through and adds just the right amount of salt and creaminess. Serve it with a side of cranberries and you’re in heaven! This is great with any turkey but is especially good with leftovers from our marinated grilled turkey breast. Continue reading →
You won’t be able to tell the difference between this easy cheesy gluten free lasagna and a glutenous version! The savory onion and garlic marinara sauce soften up the oven ready gf noodles nicely without making them soggy – but our favorite part is the gooey Parmesan layer in the middle. Awesome!
This is a re-post of an early gf and me recipe. We figured we’d circulate it again for our new readers and because it’s one of our favorite go-to recipes – especially on a chilly winter’s day!
These hearty biscuits taste just like the baking powder biscuits my sister used to make when we were kids. Buttery and salty, they are made with Cloud 9 flour giving them the look of a buckwheat biscuit. Try folding them over some grated cheese before baking – awesome! They are good hot or cold but because they only last a day or two, the recipe is small producing only about 6 biscuits.
Two of the most comforting foods come together in this dish – soup and potatoes – making it a sure bet to cure the effects of the cold, dark days of winter. The blended potatoes are what really make this soup thick and creamy and are a great base for the hints of sour cream and onion that come through. To be honest, we like this soup so much (and it’s so easy to make) that we enjoy it year round – especially when paired with our homemade gf croutons!
Good gluten free croutons are difficult to find at the grocery store. They’re often too hard, too crumbly, or have that gritty rice flour texture. So why not try making your own? This recipe is easy to do and versatile enough that you can put your own stamp on it. It’s also a great way to use up stale gf bread (which we all know is next to inedible). These crispy and savory croutons add texture and flavour to salads, and in dishes like our cheesy cauliflower soup, they can also be used to replace crackers (another hard-to-find item at the grocery store.)
Even people who don’t like parsnips or sweet potatoes usually love them in this dish. The maple glaze is subtle, adding just a hint of sweetness to the individual vegetables. Personally, I like eating these roots cold for lunch the next day!
"The thing about eating the Black and White cookie, Elaine, is you want to get some black and some white in each bite. Nothing mixes better than vanilla and chocolate And yet somehow racial harmony eludes us. If people would only look to the cookie all our problems would be solved." - Jerry to Elaine (Seinfeld, Season 5, The Dinner Party)
