Gluten-Free Quinoa & Pumpkin Seed Granola Recipe

I have dubbed this my no-oat granola. I missed that detail when I first started adapting this recipe and was sure Better Homes and Gardens had forgotten to list the oats in the ingredient list. Alas, it was intentional and I’m loving it! This granola with a little homemade almond milk is my new go-to breakfast, snack, and occasional dinner.

Gluten Free Thai Rice Paper Vegetable Roll Recipe

I love rice paper rolls and it’s disappointing how many thai places don’t have them on the menu opting for gluteneous deep fried spring rolls instead. However they are very simple and cheap to make so I often make them at home as a dinner entree or snack.

You can buy the rice paper sheets from most supermarkets and then you just need to decide what you want to fill them with. I usually make vegetarian versions using coriander, carrot and cucumber but go ahead and experiment with chicken, beef and different types of vegetables. You can also add rice noodles.

If your rice paper rolls always seem to fall apart when you dip them in Read More »

Gluten-Free Tater Tot Casserole

Tater Tot Casserole. With a name like that, how can you go wrong!?!

While growing up, one household favorite was the tater tot casserole my mom would make. She loved it because, as a busy single-mom,  she could make it ahead of time and then pop it in the oven when the time came. Us kids loved it for the most obvious reason: It had tater tots in it!

We have easily modified this casserole to be gluten-free, and can once again enjoy the comfort it brings on a cold, wintry day. Read More »

Gluten-Free Thai Chicken Pot Stickers Recipe

gluten free pot stickers recipe

If you have ever enjoyed the experience of eating “pot stickers” before going gluten-free, you know how delicious and fun these savory Asian pan-fried dumplings are. They’re fun to make too!

Traditionally pot sticker wrappers – similar to wonton wrappers, are made with wheat flour. While I’ve thought about attempting to make a gluten-free wonton for some time, it wasn’t until I bought Laura B. Russell’s cookbook, The Gluten-Free Asian Kitchen that I actually went for it.

Our gluten-free pot stickers will stick to the pan, just like wheat-made pot stickers, so read the instructions carefully and then have fun making this recipe. Read More »
