Asian Noodle Soup #glutenfree #caseinfree

My new favorite GF ingredient is Thai red curry paste and I’ve been experimenting with it a lot (using it in turkey burgers, soups, salads, pastas…).  It contains red chili pepper, garlic, lemongrass, Thai ginger, salt, shallot, spices and kaffir lime.  Yummy! So I’ve been making a scaled down version...

Easy Meat Sauce & Mini Lasagna Noodles #glutenfree

This easy meat sauce recipe with mini lasagna noodles is one of our favorite quick and tasty dinners. The recipe makes enough meat sauce for two meals for us (two people) so we freeze half for another meal or the leftovers make great lunches. Since I can’t eat ricotta or...

White Bean Hummus-y Dip #glutenfree #caseinfree

Since I have to avoid casein and dairy, I’m always looking for ways to increase my natural calcium intake and white beans are a great source. Other non-dairy foods high in calcium are dark leafy greens, okra, white beans, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, sesame seeds, figs and almonds. My fig pistachio...

Veggie Paella #glutenfree #caseinfree

I was inspired by Giada’s recipe and wanted to test my hand at this amazing veggie paella. We are always looking for interesting meatless meals to have at least once a week #MeatlessMonday. I’ve made this several times and altered some of the vegetables – not a fan of radishes...

Chicken or Veggie Fajitas #glutenfree #caseinfree

Fajita Seasoning is one of my absolute favorite go-to spices to have on hand in the pantry. We use it for salad dressings, chicken or veggie fajitas. Sometimes it adds a nice kick to breakfast tacos, too. Here are few of my favorite recipes to give you a little inspiration:...

Hollandaise and Faux Béarnaise #glutenfree #caseinfree

So… here is the recipe for gluten-free, casein-free Hollandaise and faux Béarnaise sauce I promised you! I spent a lot of time over the years getting it just right. You really need a mini-prep for this because a blender is too big unless you double or triple the recipe. Since...

Spinach Salad with Warm Bacon Dressing & Chicken #glutenfree #caseinfree

Bacon makes everything better (uncured, nitrate-, nitrite-free bacon of course)! Spinach salad is a great way to eat lots of fresh spinach and lean proteins dressed with Alton Brown’s delicious warm bacon vinaigrette! And of course, it is gluten-free and casein-free, too (make sure the bacon and mustard are gluten-free). I...

Cauliflower Crab Cakes II #glutenfree #caseinfree

My original recipe for cauliflower crab cakes (http://theweeklymenubook.com/2013/04/09/gluten-free-cauliflower-crab-cakes/) gets a lot of Pinterest traffic and is a pretty tasty treat so I thought I would share a tweaked version we made without the cheese and with a few more spices so you could enjoy the casein-free version of cauliflower crab...
