Eggplant Chicken Parmesan | Gluten-Free

Make one of your favorite comfort foods, like Chicken Parmesan, a little healthier by adding eggplant.  More veggies always make it better for you!  Plus it keeps the gluten-free breading from getting soggy. Eggplant Chicken Parmesan Chicken Parm is such a staple comfort food around here.  And this version of eggplant chicken parmesan shows up on the menu often!   Especially during the summer when eggplants are in season.  The eggplant adds a nice texture and taste to the dish.   Plus it keeps the chicken nice and crispy when you put the red sauce and cheese on top. It is another way to “healthify” gluten-free fried food.  And do we love fried food.  Since I could start eating goat’s milk again we’ve been frying...

Shishito Peppers and Spiked Chipotle Mayo

Shishito Peppers and Spiked Chipotle Mayo | Gluten-free, Dairy-Free

Sir Kensington’s Chipotle Mayo Before we get to the shishito peppers and spiked chipotle mayo recipe, I want to talk about how much I love Sir Kensington’s Chipotle Mayonnaise. They have several clean products made with gluten-free and nonGMO ingredients. As well as using fair trade organic cane sugar and certified humane free range egg yolks. So you get a pretty clean product that also sources mindfully to preserve biodiversity on the planet. I especially like the chipotle mayo. I’ve already used it in a couple of recipes found here on the blog. We love it in this chipotle curry chicken salad. Made with a few simple ingredients like apples, celery, pecans, cranberries and a little curry powder. It is such a quick and healthy...

Good Gluten-Free Pizza with Schär Crusts

We made the best pizzas with Schär gluten-free, lactose free, non GMO pizza crusts. We used Funny Farm mozzarella goat cheese, organic pizza sauce and some awesome toppings for the win! Schär Gluten-Free Pizza Crusts I have really been into trying out new Schär gluten-free products lately. And every time I try something new I get even more excited about their gluten-free products. I have used the ciabatta bread to make Caper Basil Vinaigrette Roasted Pepper Toasts with Halloumi cheese. Then I tried the puff pastry dough when it hit the market and it was awesome. You you can find it at Central Market here in Austin. We fried it to make beignets. It’s been forever since I could indulge in a beignet. And the...

Blue Cheese Buffalo Chicken Salad | Gluten-Free

Gluten-free fried chicken nuggets are tossed in Buffalo sauce and served with goat milk blue cheese dressing and crumbles in this delicious Buffalo chicken salad. Blue Cheese Buffalo Chicken Salad I absolutely adore Buffalo sauce. One of the first recipes I posted on this blog was a gluten-free Buffalo chicken salad recipe using the Buffalo sauce as the dressing. It is super simple to make using a gluten-free hot sauce like Franks RedHot and melted ghee. We keep a huge bottle in the fridge and literally put it on everything! Check out my recipe for easy Buffalo chicken dip, too! And since discovering the selection of goat cheeses at Central Market, there are so many new recipe adaptions we can make. I was so excited...

Gluten-Free Meatless Grilled Burgers

We grilled the gluten-free Beyond Meat plant-based burger patties and served them on Schär gluten-free hamburger buns and were totally impressed by both! The Beyond Burger So this isn’t a recipe or paid partnership – I just wanted to tell you how good these gluten-free meatless grilled burgers are! We are trying to eat less meat in general. And we plan a Meatless Monday dinner every week so I have lots of veggie dishes on the blog. My latest exciting copy cat was a veggie version of Southwestern Egg Rolls from Chili’s appetizer menu. There are awesome dips like pimento cheese or artichoke spinach dip. Fried goodies like fried artichoke hearts or fried mozzarella cheese sticks. Served up with a nice marinara sauce or yogurt...

Spiced Zucchini Muffins | Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free

These delicious gluten-free, dairy-free spiced zucchini muffins are made with coconut sugar, olive oil, spices, sweet white sorghum and millet flour. Summer = zucchini, zucchini, zucchini! I’m actually not a huge fan of it sautéed or grilled but always love baked zucchini goodies, like zucchini bread muffins.   See my delicious gluten-free recipe for chocolate zucchini muffins, too. Yum! There are so many recipes for zucchini bread out there, but I really wanted to try this zucchini spice bread from Martha Stewart because of all the spices in it. We love spice! And I prefer making muffins because it’s easier and quicker than making a loaf of bread. So to make this healthier, gluten-free, dairy-free and casein-free version, we change a few things: use a high-quality...

Gluten-Free Bison Meatball Stroganoff

This gluten-free bison meatball stroganoff is made with gluten-free fusilli pasta, spice mixture, mushrooms, beef broth, and goat’s milk skyr (Besos) from Bee Tree Farm. Gluten-Free Bison Meatball Stroganoff Beef stroganoff was one of my favorite dishes growing up. I would request it from mom all the time. Just loved that creamy wonderful sauce. I really did love sour cream a lot. It was just as hard to give up as cheese back in 2014. So of course, I do have an old tried and true recipe for “beef” stroganoff on the blog made with ground turkey that is gluten and dairy free. We use coconut milk, beef broth and cornstarch in the spices to create the creamy sauce. Quite honestly though, I’m getting kind...

Gluten-Free Pepper Lime Beef Fajitas

A sirloin flap marinated with coconut aminos garlic sauce, lime juice, freshly ground black pepper and few simple ingredients make the perfect gluten-free, dairy-free pepper lime beef fajitas at home. Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free Pepper Lime Beef Fajitas I’ve been going through a fun phase of making some of our favorite restaurant foods at home. Recently, I made a killer gluten-free chicken fried steak and the best vegan potato nachos that remind me of the fries and nacho cheese they served at Fuddruckers. And last week we made Southwestern Egg Rolls like you find on the appetizer menu at Chili’s. And one of our absolute favorites are the pepper lime beef fajitas they serve at Lupe Tortilla. But it can get a little pricey. So when we...

Goat Cheese Wedge Salad | Gluten-Free

A traditional wedge salad made with goat milk blue cheese and a dressing made of goat milk yogurt, Worcestershire, lemon, garlic olive oil, and hot sauce. So a few week’s ago we discovered the abundance of goat cheeses at Central Market here in Austin. And of course that opened the door to so many re-inventions of old comfort food favorites. Add that to our Wheatsville goat cheese favorites and the possibilities are endless. We made the most delicious pimento cheese with goat milk mild cheddar. And Southwestern egg rolls (a copy cat of Chili’s appetizer) with the Pepper Jack cheese from Funny Farm. And be sure to check out the gluten-free fried cheese sticks we made with goat milk mozzarella. So good! When we saw...

Southwestern Egg Rolls | Gluten-Free, Goat Cheese

Southwestern Egg Rolls I LOVE the Southwestern Egg Rolls they serve on the appetizer menu at Chili’s.  And I desperately miss being able to eat them.  But I love to take an old comfort food recipe and adjust it to fit into my dietary restrictions: gluten-free, dairy-free (except for goat cheese/milk or Parmesan), clean as possible, organic and non-GMO if possible. I had huge success with this white chicken enchilada casserole, pimento cheese, and Philly cheesesteak casserole. So these have been on the list of things to copy cat for some time now.  We finally had some time to make them and I’m so excited how they turned out! The ingredients are listed on the appetizer menu as crispy flour tortillas, chicken, black beans, corn,...
