Asian Turkey Burgers #glutenfree #caseinfree

Happy 4th of July! Hope you are enjoying the holiday weekend.  What are you making this weekend?  We’re cooking up some Asian turkey burgers. This is such an easy and scrumptious recipe for gluten-free, dairy/casein-free turkey burgers packed full of flavor!  Made with a little GF soy sauce or substitute coconut aminos if avoiding soy sauce, Thai red curry paste, chives or green onions, salt and pepper – that’s it!  If you like a little...

Mango Chutney Chicken Salad #glutenfree #dairyfree

This mango chutney chicken salad is so flavorful and packed with all types of nutritional goodies – cultured probiotics; good spices like turmeric, cayenne and pink salt; vitamins and minerals from the mango, fresh greens, seeds and nuts. There are so many layers of flavor, especially from the mango chutney! And even though my husband doesn’t usually like the dishes heavy with turmeric as much as I do, he really liked this one! Perfect for...

Thai Beef Salad #glutenfree #caseinfree

As promised, here is the recipe for Thai beef salad! It is such a delicious dinner full of flavor and fresh ingredients (ginger and garlic). The original recipe came from Ellie Krieger on Food Network. To make this gluten-free use GF soy sauce and Thai red curry paste. All of the other ingredients are naturally gluten and casein free. Make sure the cashews are safe, too. This salad is a great use of fresh basil from...

Chicken Tortilla Soup #glutenfree #caseinfree

Ahhhh, chicken tortilla soup. Where do I begin? To use one of my dad’s favorite words – I am somewhat of a chicken tortilla soup “connoisseur”. I have probably ordered it at every Mexican restaurant or hotel that I’ve been to since I first discovered it more than 20 years ago. I’ve also grown picky. I don’t like it green or thickened or with a giant corn cob in it. So I would like to tell...

Spiced Roasted Chicken #glutenfree

Spiced Roasted Chicken (seasoned salt & sumac) with Roasted Veggies Roasted chicken is such an easy, tasty dinner dish and it takes very minimal prep.  Especially, if you also roast some seasonal vegetables in the oven with a little EVOO, salt and pepper.  Doesn’t that look delish?  The red color comes from the spice sumac.  There are so many different ways to season chicken and I’m going to share a couple of my absolute favorite...

Eggplant Chicken Parmesan #glutenfree

One of our favorite indulgences used to be fried chicken, which I had to give up when I went gluten-free and started eating better. Now we make chicken coated with gluten-free rice chex (a generic version that doesn’t contain BHT) that is baked or lightly fried in olive oil.  Or you could skip the bread crumbs and use a gluten free flour instead (like Bob’s Red Mill all purpose – bean blend or oat flour).  In...

Carnitas Burrito Bowls #glutenfree #caseinfree

Carnitas Burrito Bowls Carnitas Burrito Bowls have become one of our absolute favorite dinners! The pork shoulder takes time to cook (2.5 hours in the oven) but it is worth it. And there is always leftover meat because we roast 2-3 lbs of pork shoulder (or pork butt) so we can use it to make another dinner that week, like BBQ pork sandwiches or tostadas with cabbage slaw. Or tacos. I originally started out making...

BBQ Chicken Tacos & Slaw #glutenfree #caseinfree

We live in Austin, Texas so it shouldn’t be surprising that we eat a lot of tacos. Either out or at home. They are so easy to make and the combos are endless. And it’s a great way to use up extra stuff in the fridge. These super tasty BBQ chicken tacos with cabbage coleslaw combine a little sweet and spice and are naturally casein and gluten-free. Also keep in mind that not all corn...

Fried Artichoke Hearts #glutenfree

Gluten-Free Fried Artichoke Hearts These fried artichoke hearts are one of my absolute favorite treats! They are so good – everyone just gobbles them up. Sometimes we have them as an appetizer or part of a meatless meal. They are so easy to make and a perfect way to use up leftover marinara or pizza sauce. Yum! If you can eat casein/dairy, add a little grated Parmesan cheese to the cereal mixture for an extra...

Teriyaki Chicken Salad #glutenfree #caseinfree

Teriyaki Chicken Salad This teriyaki chicken salad is amazing! I love a salad piled high with lots of different veggies, colors and textures (roasted, steamed, raw…). Add a little protein (usually my husband and I will split a chicken breast between the salads) and perfection! I’m always experimenting with ways to use some of our favorite homemade gluten-free sauces (like the Buffalo sauce or teriyaki sauce) in a salad. This one starts with homemade teriyaki sauce...
