Smoked Gouda Goat Cheese Broccoli Rice #glutenfree #meatlessmonday

Smoked Gouda Goat Cheese Broccoli Rice! This version of broccoli cheese rice is made with two kinds of goat cheese, jasmine rice, and coconut milk.  It’s perfect for those of us trying to avoid casein found in cow’s milk.  Plus who doesn’t love goat cheese?  Or creamy cheesy broccoli rice dishes? Recently, at my favorite store the goat cheese section expanded.  We found a goat cheese smoked gouda (smoked gouda is one of my very...

Asian Fried Rice #glutenfree #caseinfree #meatlessmonday

Hello Meatless Monday! So Asian Fried Rice? It’s been done before. Why blog it again? I’m sharing this recipe because fried rice is a challenge for me and it actually turned out really well!  And trust me that I’ve tried to make ‘Chinese Fried Rice’ with old cooked rice and cold rice – all the ways they’ve said to make fried rice – but it just never works for me. I get mush, especially with Basmati rice...

Mexican Rice #glutenfree #caseinfree

One of our favorite side dishes is this naturally gluten-free casein-free Mexican rice. I start with frying white basmati rice in olive oil, but from there the recipe is really versatile. I’ve made it many different ways depending on what I have on hand. Sometimes I follow an adaptation of the original recipe and sauté the rice with garlic and jalapeño, then add pureed tomato, onion, chicken broth and tomato paste. Other times, if I’ve...

Cilantro Lime Rice #glutenfree #caseinfree #realfood

This is a super simple recipe for very tasty cilantro lime rice made from scratch using fresh ingredients.  I usually make enough to use for several meals. Tonight we are going to have some of the cilantro lime rice with Ancho chili and lime roasted chicken and roasted pineapple and mango salsa. And tomorrow we are having leftover rice with black beans in taco bowls. Yum! For a long time we ate brown rice because...

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 but love cauliflower seasoned with bright spices. You could probably use any vegetables you like and it’s a great way to get rid of some...

Ghormeh Sabzi (Persian Herb Stew) & Basmati Rice #glutenfree #caseinfree

Ghormeh Sabzi – A Persian Herb Stew My mother was Persian and growing up it was a huge treat when she would cook a traditional Iranian dish because she was pretty westernized and preferred not spending too much time in the kitchen.  Oh but when my grandmother would visit, we would feast the entire time – she loved to cook all day.  We had several favorites and it was amazing how much work she would...

Carrot Rice #glutenfree #caseinfree

Carrot rice is a sweet, decadent rice perfect for a special occasion. And it is very easy to make! Growing up we had it at Christmas because it pairs really well with a baked ham. So if you are having ham for Easter, think about making this, too. People always rave about it (make sure to double or triple the recipe for more than 2-3 people). It went really well with Chicken A L’Orange and...

Chicken & Broccoli Cheesy Rice #glutenfree

This recipe for Chicken & Broccoli Cheesy Rice is a gluten-free adaptation and modification of an original recipe for “Chicken ‘Divine’” from the Bride & Groom First and Forever Cookbook.  This cookbook is amazing and most of the recipes can easily be converted to gluten-free! At first I used quinoa pasta to replace the regular pasta, but then switched to brown rice. Either will work in this recipe. Just cook according to directions before adding...
