Gluten Free Burrito Casserole Recipe

Finished burrito casserole; get the tortilla recipe in The Warm Kitchen

When you’re craving a burrito, is it really that gluten-containing tortilla  you’re after?  My guess is that it’s actually the hearty combination of fillings–the rice, beans, cheese, meat, etc. that got your mouth watering in the first place. Sure you could always make or buy gluten-free tortillas, but why not take a twist on the classic and ditch the burrito shell all together?

This recipe comes straight from my cookbook, The Warm Kitchen. This recipe is versatile, family-friendly and cooks up in about 20 minutes. Dinner is served!

One thing that I have really enjoyed this past summer is making breakfast parfaits.

I do not know what it is, but they are just light on the system and they kinda trip the body into thinking that it’s getting a sugary treat so you don’t crave sugar all day (YAY!)

This parfait is sweet, HEALTHY, and satisfying!

Burger Deconstructed with Spicy Sweet Potato Hash Brown Recipe

I have shared my rice bowls many times in the past, and they are some of my favorite, quick meals.  However, the other day, I had a huge sweet potato that needed to be used, but I really wanted a burger.  I didn’t want a bun, so I decided to make a burger bowl or deconstructed burger.  I made my sweet potato into spicy sweet potato hash browns & then layered in the bowl with some mushrooms that I had sauteed in extra virgin olive oil and white wine.

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.

Healthy Gluten-Free Tuna Salad Recipe

This recipe is full of nutrients that are important to anyone living gluten-free. Tuna is a great source of iodine and iron, and avacado provides fiber, potassium, vitamin E, B-vitamins, and folic acid. The tomato is full of Vitamins A and C, the onions add sulfur, and the cilantro contains Vitamin K and gives the salad it’s zesty taste. I hope you enjoy!
