Tandoori Faux Chicken Quinoa Bowl (Vegan, Gluten-Free)

I am super excited about this so tasty and so different Indian flavoured vegan dish. In this recipe, I used tofu for the faux chicken which is coated with tandoori spices and baked, and the quinoa is made with chickpeas, carrots and peas all cooked in an Indian flavoured broth. This tandoori faux chicken quinoa bowl is so, so flavourful! To finish the dish, drizzle everything with plenty of fresh lemon juice and serve with tomatoes and or snap peas. If you are not a fan of quinoa, you will become one after you try this dish :-D  Quinoa is a gluten-free super seed high in protein and one of the few plant foods that contain sufficient amounts of all nine essential amino acids. It is also high in fiber, iron, potassium, calcium, magnesium, B vitamins, vitamin E, phosphorus, and various beneficial antioxidants. To your health! Have you visited my online store lately?

Banana Mousse With Strawberry Chocolate Sauce

This is a silky banana mousse topped with fresh strawberries lightly coated in chocolate sauce. What inspired me to make this gluten-free dessert is my ripe bananas. Bananas can be used for many recipes like muffins, cakes or breakfast bread so why not a mousse?

By adding the strawberry chocolate sauce, this simple banana mousse becomes a dreamy lip smacking dessert. Last minute guests? No problem, this entire dessert takes only 10 minutes to make. Enjoy!

These gluten-free peanut butter chocolate chip cookies are sooo delicious! The cookie 🍪 will melt in your mouth and all you need is five ingredients for this recipe. Just imagine a cookie recipe without flour, doesn't this sound good? As a sweetener I used coconut sugar, you may ask why?

Moving on, not only this gluten-free peanut butter chocolate chip cookie will satisfy your sweet tooth, it will also supply you with energy.

Gluten-Free Crispy Thin Pizza Crust

Today I will share with you my favourite gluten-free crispy thin pizza crust recipe. Since my favourite gluten-free pizza is vegetarian, I made this into a vegetarian pizza, but feel free to add your favourite toppings.  I have also included a delicious pizza sauce recipe that is super simple to make. When making a gluten-free crispy pizza crust, it is essential to par-bake the crust before adding the toppings. To keep the topping flavours harmonized after I added the sauce, I sprinkled it with some of the cheese before adding other toppings. This makes a big difference in the taste and the texture outcome of the pizza. 🍕 And I always finish with cheese. By following these few steps, you will get that perfect crispy thin pizza crust, and the toppings will compliment each other instead of blending into one flavour. Give it a try and let me know what you think in the comments below. I always like to hear from you.

Instant Pot Vietnamese Beef Pho Recipe

When it comes to soups, Vietnamese beef pho has become very popular. Pho is a type of Vietnamese soup made with a clear deliciously flavoured broth, rice noodles, slices of meat and various toppings. Authentic pho takes anywhere from 6 to 10 hours to cook, this is why I chose the Instant Pot. To make a rich beef broth in an instant pot takes only 2 hours, and the exotic flavours are the same as cooking the broth the traditional method. When making beef pho you can use many different cuts of meat, like brisket, oxtails, or bones, but I chose the beef shank bone. By using the shank bone, there is a lot less fat, and the beef flavour is rich, making it an excellent choice for the pho. But the pho isn't complete without the various toppings and garnishes. To summarize, the best Vietnamese pho has a rich flavourful broth, rice noodles, toppings such as bean sprouts, snow peas, julienned carrots, bok choy, and mushrooms and garnishes like lime wedges, Thai basil and jalapeno peppers. Because Pho is served with rice noodles, this soup is also gluten-free. Enjoy!

Gluten-Free Digestive Cookie Recipe

Today I want to tell you about these gluten-free digestive cookies. They are nothing fancy but will satisfy your craving for a cookie. In this gluten-free cookie recipe, I added oats and sweet sorghum flour for extra protein and fiber. To sweeten them up, I used a little maple syrup. To seal the deal I drizzled melted chocolate over the cookies. The chocolate is optional, but it doesn't hurt to add chocolate to desserts. When I make the cookies, I only decorate some with chocolate and leave the others without it. Why are these gluten-free cookies different from most? It is because the cookies are not as sweet and you can serve them with cheese or other savoury toppings. Enjoy!

Leftover Turkey & Singapore Style Noodles (Gluten-Free)

Let's talk about leftovers! I don't know about you, but I always have plenty of turkey leftovers and not enough gravy. Let's face it, turkey without gravy doesn't quite make it. So, the dish I was going to make had to be flavourful, and I still wanted to keep it simple. Because exotic flavours and noodles are my favourites, I decided to turn the turkey leftovers into a gluten-free Singapore style noodle dish. This means snow peas, mushrooms, bell peppers, carrots, rice vermicelli and spices such as curry, garlic and ginger and of course leftover turkey. What I love about this recipe, if you don't have turkey, you can use leftover chicken, pork or beef. Who said turkey leftovers have to be boring? Enjoy!

If you are a chocolate lover, you will love this gluten-free chocolate dessert not only because of how delicious it is but because it is healthier.

Easy Gluten-Free Tortilla Recipe

There is no better and easier gluten-free tortilla recipe than this. The tortillas taste is authentic, they are soft and easily folded. When I decided to create this gluten-free tortilla recipe, I also wanted the tortilla to be healthy. I used millet, and chickpea flour both are enriched with the goodness of nature. They are an excellent source of fiber, iron, protein, calcium zinc and minerals. It is the millet flour that adds that authentic flavour and makes these into perfect gluten-free tortillas. Did I mention that all you need is 3 ingredients plus salt and water and no oil? How wonderful is that :-) I hope you enjoy them as much as my family does. You can use them for a quesadilla, soft taco, pizza, wrap, burrito or make them into chips for dips. Enjoy!

Gluten-Free Mini Scones With Manchego, Red Pepper & Onions

These gluten-free savoury mini scones are pretty special and sure to please. They are made with Manchego cheese, caramelized red pepper and onions flavoured with chili pepper. I can say they have a subtle Spanish flavour. When it comes to cheese, and savoury baking Manchego cheese is my favourite. The cheese has a buttery, nutty flavour with slight piquancy and melts beautifully. I love to serve these scones as a starter with a salad or as an appetizer because they are small and you can top them with just about anything like avocado, smoked salmon, ham, eggs, tomatoes the list is endless. My favourite way to serve these mini scones is as burger sliders because of their size and flavour. These gluten-free scones have a light texture, and they are best when freshly baked. For any leftovers, I reheat them in an oven at 375 F for 5 minutes, they come out just as if they were freshly baked. On a side note; I would like to share my favourite gluten-free cookbook selection

Gluten-Free Matzo Ball Soup Recipe

Matzo also called Matzah ball soup is served on the Jewish holiday of Passover. The soup is traditionally chicken soup which is served with Jewish dumplings called matzo balls. Matzo balls can either be incredibly bland or the ultimate addition to chicken soup. When I was creating this gluten-free matzo ball recipe I wanted to have a lot of flavours, so I added herbs, garlic, ginger and nutmeg. Then I cooked the dumplings in the chicken broth infusing them with the broth and also adding more flavour to the soup. Sometimes the matzo balls are served in a clear chicken broth, but I wanted to make this soup heartier, so I kept the chicken and the veggies making this soup a big success. It's no secret that chicken soup is one of our favourites, enjoy!
