Gluten Free Chicken Noodle Soup Recipe

Green Veggies Kaitlin Fleming

Tonight I made an all-organic gluten free chicken noodle soup and it hit the spot. It is a seasonal staple and it does not have to contain gluten to warm your belly.

I’ve made chicken noodle soup before so I just used what I knew I wanted in the soup as a guide.

The great thing about this recipe is that you can add any veggies you want, replace noodles with rice and potatoes, whatever you are craving.

I chose to go with all green veggies tonight: asparagus, broccoli and green beans (fresh or frozen).

If your pantry is stocked you’ll have all of this already! Read More »

Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Zucchini Mini-Muffin Recipe

Gluten free chocolate chip zucchini mini muffinsZucchini is a veggie that you can easily add to just about anything, and that’s pretty much what I’ve been doing with it. Grated, it makes a wonderful “raw” pasta substitute, I love it lightly stir-fried with other veggies, it’s delicious sauteed and added to salads, omelets, or whatever else is cooking, and then of course there’s always zucchini bread. My grandmother used to make it every summer. She would bake it in loaves, and then sandwich softened cream cheese between thin slices. It tasted like cake, and I suppose it practically was the way she made it. YUM.

I started looking online for gluten free zucchini bread recipes, and I came across some zucchini mini muffins with chocolate chips over on Elana’s Pantry. I love that website, and I have her Gluten Free Almond Flour cookbook, which I use regularly. She now also has a Gluten-Free Cupcakes book, which is now on my wish list, if anyone is feeling generous.

But I digress. Here is the original Gluten Free Zucchini Chocolate Chip Mini Muffins recipe, and the only things I changed were my typical substitutions using Read More »

Gluten Free Chocolate Genoise Cake Recipe

Often times, when baking gluten free items, a small substitution is needed. However, if you don’t bake a lot, some recipes can be a bit complex. It’s best to follow a good recipe and make sure to make it once before you decide to make it for a big party.

genoise_cakeChocolate genoise cake can be used to make any type of jelly roll cake but it’s especially popular around the holidays to make a yule log. Creating a gluten free version requires only a few changes. Always make sure the other ingredients are gluten free like the cocoa. For the best flavor, use a local cocoa powder like Ghirardelli. It gives the cake a great flavor. Read More »

Gluten Free Christmas Fruit Cake Recipe

Erin Emms gluten free works

Fruit Cake seems to be one of those things that you either love, or you hate. Personally I also find them really hard to bake and not have them dry out, so this year was a double challenge to make the perfect gluten free fruit cake without it drying out. Like most recipes it’s a personal taste on what you’d like to add, obviously if you have a nut allergy you can exclude those. If you like your cake frosted with frosting you can also do that too.

Enjoy!

Gluten Free Cranberry and Hazlenut Biscotti Recipe

gluten free cranberry hazlenut biscottiThese hazlenut biscotti have a warm, complex flavour with a lighter texture than my usual biscotti.  They have a hint of cinnamon but if you want a spicier flavour just add more spice, perhaps with mixed spice or ginger as well as the cinnamon.  If you like an iced biscotti, making a glace icing with icing sugar and ginger wine would work well.

Gluten free waffles aren’t hard to make; you really just need to substitute regular flour with a good gluten free flour blend.

To make some extra special waffles, try this recipe to serve around the holidays. The combination of nutmeg and vanilla makes for some wonderful smells in the house.

Try topping this with some fresh whipped cream, sliced bananas and maple syrup. Yum!

Gluten Free Flourless Brownie Recipe

Cake Darla Gluten Free Works

I may have mentioned how much I love the Whole Foods Recipes app a time or two dozen on here. It’s very user friendly and has a great bank of recipes. I particularly like the Flourless Brownies because they’re made with a secret ingredient: black beans. That’s right, you use a can of unsalted black beans (that have been well rinsed and drained) instead of flour. Every once in a while I get experimental and try the beans-for-flour sub in other recipes, but lately I’ve been playing around with this one trying to make it… better. Read More »
