Gluten-Free Mango Cashew Cornbread Stuffing

November 17th, 2011 by Cristi Comes


We discovered during the past year that my 4-year-old son Ronin and my 21-month-old daughter Ellie are both gluten and dairy intolerant. My husband John is gluten-free too. The good news is that changing Ronin’s diet has helped his anxiety-related sleep issues decrease immensely. He used to have night terrors every night, but now only has them on the rare occasions we miss cutting out the gluten.

Since John has been gluten free for a while, I came up with this stuffing recipe a few years ago for Thanksgiving. And its always been a huge hit. This year I’ve modified it to also remove the dairy for the kiddos.

It. is. SO. Yum. If I do say so myself!

polenta and tomatoes mascarponeWhen Sarah Henkin and I were trying to come up with a menu item for samples at the Ferry Plaza Farmer's Market FoodWise booth, we decided to make delicious, late summer tomatoes the centerpiece. We needed to keep the dish simple since there were some other events happening that day. Roasted tomatoes on top of something seemed like a good option to me.

Since we eat gluten-free, I tend to not think about using bread with tomatoes (although the thought does leave me with pangs of longing for Acme). My standard fallback is usually polenta. I made a similar dish last year with roasted veggies and gorgonzola (see that post here) so this needed to be different. (more…)

Gluten-Free Round Up…Seasonal Pumpkin Recipes

gluten-free-pumpkin-recipesFall is here and that means pumpkins are starting to appear on your neighbor's door step and in grocery stores, which is the universal signal to start carving and cooking pumpkin. Why is it most of us tend to cook with pumpkin only around Halloween and Thanksgiving?  Pumpkin is loaded with vitamin A, fiber and it is low in calories, so we should find ways to work it into our diet throughout the year.

Pumpkin is very versatile to cook with, so it can be used in both sweet and savory recipes.  This Examiner did a little research for gluten-free pumpkin recipes and was amazed at all of the drool-worthy recipes we found.  Listed below are just a fraction of the gluten-free pumpkin recipes available online.

What is your favorite way to cook with pumpkin?

gluten-free sunflower hummusDid you know that you can make hummus with sunflower seeds? I didn’t either until I learned about it from my friend Dallas. Dallas is one of my most inspiring friends when it comes to healthy eating. She is a vegetarian, and although she isn’t gluten-free, much of her diet is naturally gluten-free, because she sticks to whole foods. Dallas also hosts our Raw Foods Potlucks each month. If you haven’t checked out this post on past Raw Foods Potlucks, take a look back.

But back to hummus. I love hummus. I make a big batch of it almost every weekend, and I pack it in my lunchbox throughout the week for an afternoon snack. One scoop of hummus covered with an assortment of veggies is a quick, easy, healthy (more…)

Two Quick and Easy Gluten-free Dips

July 18th, 2011 by Amy Fothergill

Instead of opening a jar of olive tapenade or a dip from the refrigerated section of the market, consider making your own. If you keep some key ingredients on hand and have a small food processor or blender, you are in business!

Gluten Free Olive TapenadeThe olive tapenade is so easy and so much better when made fresh. The beauty of it is that you can make a small amount if you are just having a few friends or more for a party. It can be used on top of chicken or even in a sandwich. And when you make it yourself, you can control the salt, garlic and rosemary (or even omit one of these).

The white bean spread is a great starter and really healthy. This recipe calls for (more…)
