Gluten-Free Spinach Goat Feta Puff Pastry

Thank you, Schär Having to eat gluten-free (and dairy-free for awhile) usually meant bypassing some of the most delicious treats. And sometimes you just really miss those old comfort food classics. Lately, we have been trying a bunch of Schär gluten-free products and are just blown away. We found hamburger buns and puff pastry dough at Central Market. Then we tried the pizza crust found at Sprouts and were so excited about the taste and texture. I’ve been so happy with the products so far (btw – this is not a sponsored post)! They also have the best table crackers and artisan multigrain bread (also at Sprouts). It’s awesome. Brett loves the entertainment crackers (taste so much like Ritz) and they are perfect for dipping...

Sorghum Millet Banana Muffins | Gluten-free, Dairy-Free

These gluten-free and vegan banana muffins are made with organic coconut sugar, smashed ripe bananas, avocado oil, applesauce, cinnamon, millet flour and sorghum flour. Homemade Muffins We love making homemade muffins around here because you can control all the ingredients that go into them. And banana muffins are definitely a favorite. Some of my early recipes were for banana oat muffins made with Better Batter all purpose gluten-free flour and certified gluten-free rolled oats. Then I made vegan banana oat muffins using a combo of gluten-free oat flour and sorghum flour to increase dietary fiber in the muffins. #feedthegutbugs In this recipe I’m using millet and sorghum flours instead and changing up the recipe just a bit. They really turned out delicious, nutritious with really...

Gluten-Free Chicken Breakfast Sausage

Biscuits, Breakfast Sausage & Gravy Who doesn’t love biscuits, sausage and gravy? We certainly love this comfort food around here! But how do we make it gluten-free and a little healthier? This one was not easy. Especially the biscuits. So I’ve tried to make gluten-free biscuits many times. When you use cold butter and buttermilk – they come out fantastic. But not so much when you use butter substitutes. So I really haven’t made great biscuits since giving up dairy. I was complaining about this to my friend, Suzanna, who makes beautiful biscuits and she suggested I use goat butter since I can tolerate goat’s milk. Genius! So I used Pamela’s Biscuit & Scone Mix, goat milk butter and coconut milk creamer and followed the...

Fried Smashed Fingerling Potatoes | Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free

Fried Smashed Fingerling Potatoes So these fried smashed fingerling potatoes were a very happy accident. Super crispy fried potatoes with a soft center, sprinkled with smoked paprika and fresh cilantro then served with Sir Kensington’s Chipotle Mayo. It was so good! Like a cross between a potato chip and French fries. These would be great to serve at a BBQ with grilled meats or burgers. I was trying to recreate one of my favorite dishes from ATX Cocina – smashed papas bravas with smoked chili aioli. So I started out trying to make papas bravas using two different recipes from the New York Times and Serious Eats. But we simplified everything. And instead of buying Russet or Idaho potatoes, I thought I would try it...

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...
