It’s almost Thanksgiving!

Kale Pesto Pasta #glutenfree #caseinfree

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

Southwestern Taquitos #glutenfree #caseinfree

This is a flavorful and nutritious soup that is best when made from scratch (no canned beans or tomatoes) and it is naturally gluten-free, dairy-free and low-sodium. Use vegetable broth to make it vegetarian and omit the Worcestershire sauce (made with anchovies) to make it vegan. It actually may be...

Basil Artichoke Sauce with Roasted Chicken and Penne Pasta #glutenfree

I found this recipe for basil artichoke sauce when looking for a way to use up some of the fresh basil in the garden. I use frozen artichoke hearts (or canned if I can’t find frozen) because it’s just so much easier than prepping fresh artichokes. Although, I’m sure it...
