Food on Friday ~ Gluten Free

Gluten is bad for a guy.  At least that’s what I’ve been reading.  I only vaguely know that gluten is found in flour, and I’ve mostly eschewed wheat flour anyhow.  As I don’t use milk I don’t eat breakfast cerials either.  Here’s a clue to gluten, it’s basically glue, so a gluten-free diet or reduced gluten diet sounds like a good thing.  Some people suffer from celiac disease, which means they must have a completely gluten free diet.  There is evidence that reducing the amout of gluten you eat / drink helps to reduce unsigtly tummy bloating, and women especially don’t want a beer belly.  There are some easier ways to reduce abdominal bloating, and cutting down on gluten is one.

My Top Tip ~ Stop Drinking Beer.

Gluten – Free Recipes

From the kitchen of Cookie + kate, (Cookie is the dog), we give you double tomato pesto spaghetti with zucchini noodles.  You can make this a vegan dish if you don’t use parmesan.  Without parmesan I would use plenty of olive oil and black pepper.

Also fom Cookie + kate, and using mango ~ a fruit I want to eat more often, there’s this Thai mango salad with peanut dressing.

Now from the ever interesting Heather Christo, I offer you this nice looking nectarine ginger sesame chicken salad.  If you want a vegetarian / vegan dish, then miss out the chicken.

Here’s a mixture I wouldn’t have thought of; mango and fennel salad.  A dish with a hint of Asian form Sabrina at Organic is beautiful. Now, if we ever get a hot day in England I will try this.

A lady I haven’t featured before, Mona from Queen of my kitchen has these gluten-free spicy cheese straws.  It’s pretty difficult to buy this kind of really tasty gluten-free stuff at your local store.

Tieghan Gerard at Half Baked Harvest has this nice looking and nice sounding recipe for Vietnamese meatball lettuce wraps with mango salad + cilantro-basil cashew sauce.  Tieghan says this is a 30 minute dish, from start to finish.  It’s on mu menu for the weekend.

Finally for this week, from Chungah at Damn Delicious, Thai salmon in foil.  This is a great 20 minute dish that works well with all types of sides, including fries, rice, green beans….  The dish uses sweet chili suace and lots of garlic, both of which I like a lot.  It also uses srircacha, a hot sauce, (which I had to look up).
