Greek yogurt parmesan pasta sauce variations.

I love this sauce because you can change it up by adding veggies, cooked meats, seafood or fresh herbs. I recommend that the veggies are first blanched or steamed before adding them to the sauce. My favourite veggies to add to the white sauce are broccoli, peas, mushrooms or zucchini. yogurt 



fresh veggies,

When using fresh veggies, they should be briefly cooked or blanched or steamed before adding them to the sauce. The easiest way to do this is, adding them to the pasta water for the last minute or so while the pasta is still cooking. The veggies should remain fork-tender but still firm.

mushrooms are an exception,

The only exception is mushrooms. If you are using mushrooms, they should be thinly sliced. Add them to the sauce before adding the yogurt, and cook them covered for about 1 minute. Then continue with the recipe. 


If you decide to add meat, it must be cooked first. The Greek yogurt parmesan pasta sauce is an excellent way to use up leftover meats, such as chicken, pork, bacon or ham. wild salmon, seafood 


Seafood makes a delicious addition to this gluten-free Greek yogurt parmesan pasta sauce. The seafood such as shrimp, white fish or salmon can be cooked in the sauce. Add the seafood before adding the yogurt and a little extra broth/pasta water. Cover the saucepan and simmer until cooked. Then continue with the recipe. parmesan cheese 

the sauce,

The Greek yogurt parmesan pasta sauce cooks very quickly and should be simmered over low heat to avoid curdling. The Parmesan cheese will melt and make the sauce super creamy. greek yogurt parmesan sauce with gluten free fettuccini

Gluten-Free Crazy Crust Pizza

This gluten-free crazy crust pizza is one of our easiest pizza recipes. Soft, crispy bottom crust topped with our favourite toppings, such as ground beef, pepperoni, mushrooms, bell peppers, onions, garlic, tomato sauce, and lots of cheese!! crazy crust pizza, gluten free Crazy crust pizza has always been my favourite gluten-free pizza dough recipe when I am short on time. The dough has the consistency of pancake batter, making it one of the easiest pizza dough recipes. No rolling or stretching out the dough, just pouring it into the baking pan and topping it with just about anything you love on your pizza. pizza batter In our home, whenever the pizza craving kicks in, and I have very little time, I always make the gluten-free crazy crust pizza. tomato sauce, gluten free This is not a thin crust pizza, but if you prefer the pizza crust to be thinner, use a slightly bigger rimmed pan. You can even use a 14-inch rimmed pizza pan. I feel the crust is better when it is slightly thicker because it holds the toppings perfectly. crazy crust pizza, gluten free 

How is crazy crust pizza different?

First, the crust is made with liquid batter and not the typical pizza dough. Most of the toppings are baked in the batter, and then the pizza is finished with tomato sauce and cheese and baked a little longer until the cheese is bubbling. The sauce adds flavour to the meat. For the cheese….well, you can't have a pizza without gooey cheese. gluten-free pizza 

our toppings,

I wanted this gluten-free crazy crust pizza to be hearty and satisfying. So I used ground beef and pepperoni for the meat. I have also added onions, bell peppers and mushrooms for freshness. I could have used gluten-free pizza sauce, but instead, I mixed tomato sauce with mustard and basil. The sauce added exceptional flavour to this most delicious crazy crust pizza. crazy crust pizza, gluten free 

other pizza toppings,

There are plenty of topping choices when making a crazy crust pizza. If you are looking to make a vegetarian pizza, briefly saute vegetables such as onions, zucchini, peppers, asparagus, artichokes, spinach, mushrooms or whatever you like before adding them to the batter. For meaty pizzas, you can use chicken, ham, bacon…the list is endless.When it comes to crazy crust pizza, the sauce and the cheese must be added at the very end. This will give you a soft pizza crust without being soggy with a crispy bottom. Perfection, if you ask me :-)Whenever you crave a pizza and don't want to mess around too much with preparation, you should try the crazy crust pizza. I promise you will not be disappointed. This gluten-free pizza may even become your new favourite!  gluten-free pizza dough Are you looking maybe for an appetizer or finger food for a sports event?

Gluten-Free Zucchini Bacon And Cheese Muffins

Breakfast anyone? These gluten-free zucchini bacon and cheese muffins are filled with healthy zucchini, crispy smoky bacon, and topped with melted sharp cheddar cheese. There is so much goodness in these hearty muffins that you will need only one to keep you energized for hours. zucchini muffin, gluten free You may like fresh berry muffins, such as this gluten-free triple berry muffin or savoury muffins such as these protein-packed zucchini, bacon and cheese muffins →   if you are a breakfast person. This gluten-free muffin has it all — eggs, bacon, cheese and fresh zucchini and flaxseed for extra fiber. Often some of us have bacon and eggs for breakfast with a toast. So I thought, why not put everything into one muffin and call it breakfast on the go :-) zucchini muffin, gluten free These zucchini bacon and cheese muffins are best when freshly baked and served warm. This is why I kept the recipe to only six muffins. However, you can double the recipe if you are feeding a large family. For any leftovers, I recommend slightly reheating them. gluten-free breakfast 

What is different about this gluten-free muffin recipe?

One thing that makes this muffin different from other gluten-free zucchini muffin recipes is the topping. Typically when you make muffins with cheese, you mix the cheese in the muffin batter. Because I wanted to taste the cheese, I added a cube of cheese on top before baking. The sharp cheddar cheese melted and gave the muffin a cheesy flavourful topping, making this gluten-free muffin extra delicious! bacon muffin, gluten free


the bacon,

I wanted the bacon to be prevalent in these zucchini muffins. So I doubled the bacon amount that I would generally add to muffin recipes. I wanted the smoky flavour to come through. Besides, the gluten-free bacon is first cooked and drained from most of the fat. Leaving only crispy chunks of delicious smoky bacon throughout these gluten-free muffins. zucchini 

Things to know about adding fresh zucchini to muffin recipes!

First, do not peel the zucchini. The colourful skin is where you will get most of the health benefits, such as carotenoids and fiber. The skin is thin and soft, and slightly sweet, especially when cooked. You can also eat zucchini raw with delicious dips, such as this keto hot pizza dip, or this low-carb eggplant dip.Zucchini comes in many colours. The most common variety is a deep green colour, the zucchini I most often use. Other types are yellow, orange, pale green or striped. They can all be used in this muffin recipe.When adding zucchini to muffin batter, after grating the zucchini, always squeeze out as much moisture as possible. I find paper towels or a clean dishcloth does the job well. You want to remove as much moisture as possible because if you don't, the muffins will become soggy, and the texture will not be too tasty. zucchini muffin, gluten free 

the cheese muffin topping,

For extra cheesy flavour, I used sharp cheddar cheese. This is a good melting cheese for baking and packs robust flavour, complimenting the bacon and mildly flavoured zucchini. However, you can use other good melting cheeses, such as smoked gouda, gruyere, provolone or low moisture mozzarella.These gluten-free muffins packed with tender zucchini, smoky, crispy bacon and finished with gooey cheesy topping are a delicious way to start your day. If you follow the intermittent fasting schedule, you can enjoy these muffins for your first meal. The flavourful gluten-free muffins are packed with protein and will keep you satisfied for hours.

Three ingredients that make this a super bread,

Buckwheat — a naturally gluten-free seed that is not related to wheat in any way. This seed contains manganese, magnesium, phosphorus, niacin, zinc, folate, vitamin B6 and dietary fiber.Flaxseed — another ingredient in this bread recipe that is considered a superfood. This tiny seed is loaded with nutrients, dietary fiber and contains good quality protein.Psyllium — comes from the husk of the seed of the Plantago plant and has an array of health benefits. Some studies have shown that adding psyllium to your diet will help with weight loss. When buying psyllium for baking, do not buy the metamucil brand. This brand does not work in this recipe. This is my favourite psyllium husk powder. buckwheat flax bread 

ways to enjoy buckwheat flax bread,

What I love about this bread are the flavour and texture. The bread tastes earthy and makes excellent sandwiches. The crust is firm and slightly crispy. And, the dark brown bread is hearty and satisfying. Two of my favourite ways to enjoy this gluten-free bread are with salmon spread or avocado egg salad sandwiches. They compliment each other beautifully. This high fiber bread is guilt-free because it is packed with so much goodness. It makes delicious sandwiches, serves as a starter, makes a great addition to salads or dip into your favourite stew or hearty soup.   buckwheat flax bread, grain free I recommend storing this bread in the fridge. The grain-free plant-based bread will keep up to five days when refrigerated. If you are searching for gluten-free bread that will keep you satisfied, help you with weight loss and is healthy, look no further. Enjoy!

The stunning no-bake dessert is without added eggs and can be made with or without alcohol. For a special occasion like Valentines, Birthdays or Anniversaries, nothing beats an impressive dessert such as this strawberry tiramisu. strawberry Strawberry tiramisu puts a twist on the classic tiramisu dessert. This gluten-free dessert is made with layers of ladyfingers soaked with richly flavoured strawberries and light creamy mascarpone cheese. For the topping, I went an extra step and made strawberries dipped in chocolate ganache sauce. strawberry tiramisu, gluten free 

this gluten-free strawberry tiramisu recipe is super easy!

I promise you that anyone can make this dessert. This Italian inspired dessert is all about mixing and layering. There is nothing to it, and you will get exceptional results every time. To keep this gluten-free dessert simple, you can buy gluten-free ladyfingers. If you have time, I recommend making them from scratch. Please see the gluten-free ladyfingers recipe below. strawberry tiramisu First, half of the strawberries are chopped and mixed with strawberry preserve and alcohol. If you want to skip the alcohol, you can replace it with orange juice. For extra special occasions like Valentine's, I like to add Rum or Cointreau for an exotic flavour, and they are both gluten-free.The mascarpone cheese mixture is made super simple without added eggs. The classic tiramisu recipe has egg yolks, which have to be cooked before adding them to the mascarpone cheese. In this recipe, I skipped the eggs keeping the mascarpone layer light. I did add a couple of tablespoons of alcohol, but you can replace it with an extra 1/2 a teaspoon of pure vanilla extract.Once the strawberry mixture and the mascarpone cream is ready, all you have to do is start layering. Somewhere in between, I added some more fresh strawberries, giving this gluten-free tiramisu fresh strawberry flavour - this dessert is sooo good! gluten-free dessert 

the topping,

There are a couple of options here. The simplest option is sliced strawberries. However, if you want to impress someone, top this heavenly gluten-free tiramisu cake with chocolate ganache strawberries. YUM. chocolate ganache strawberries For the chocolate ganache dipped strawberries, I know it is an extra step…but well worth it. The chocolate ganache sauce takes about 4 minutes to make. The thing to remember when making strawberries dipped in chocolate is, the strawberries must be dry. If they are wet, the chocolate sauce doesn't stick to the strawberries very well. Whether you are celebrating Valentine's or another special occasion, I promise you will not be disappointed with this gluten-free strawberry tiramisu dessert. Enjoy!  strawberry tiramisu cake

Crispy Baked Gluten-Free Egg Rolls

Oh my, these crispy baked gluten-free egg rolls are not to be missed. The egg rolls are filled with deliciously tender pork, ginger, garlic, fresh green cabbage, carrots, green onions, tamari sauce, sesame oil and spices making these gluten-free egg rolls super flavourful. Every bite is filled with plenty of meat and veggie mixture rolled in a crunchy wrapper.To keep the egg rolls super crispy without frying, I made them with soft corn tortillas. I know, not your typical egg roll wrapper and a little different. But, once the tortillas are baked, they become super crispy. And you will find that by using the corn tortillas, the Asian inspired rolls are super easy to whip up. egg rolls, gluten free 

Easiest gluten-free egg roll recipe

You may think that making egg rolls is complicated and time consuming — it's not. I will show you how easy it is to make these crispy baked gluten-free egg rolls in just a few steps.First, the filling is made. You will need to preheat a large skillet or a pan. Once the pan is hot, add the ground pork and cook, making sure that you are breaking up the meat as it is cooking. The pork takes just minutes to cook. Then add the ginger, garlic, cinnamon and cloves and stir everything until the meat is well coated.Now that the meat is ready remove the skillet from the heat and add the fresh veggies. You don't want the veggies to be cooked, just heated through. The crispy bite of cabbage and carrots is what makes the filling sooo good. At this point, I added gluten-free sodium-reduced tamari sauce and toasted sesame oil. Both of these ingredients add extra flavour. Once everything is mixed, taste the filling, and if needed, season with salt and pepper. I don't like to add too much salt to my dishes, and this is why I add salt until the very end, if needed. gluten free egg rolls


gluten-free egg roll wrappers,

I especially love the filling made with lightly spiced pork and fresh veggies, YUM! I could just eat it with a spoon with steamed veggies or rice. You may have tried my egg roll in a bowl recipe …delicious! However, today I wanted the filling to be wrapped with a crunchy wrapper. It is more satisfying and comforting to take a bite out of a crispy egg roll. Don't you agree?Recently I made gluten-free carnitas. The carnitas came out so good and crispy, so I thought why not try to make these egg rolls the same way. I was worried that they would fall apart after they were baked, because there isn’t melted cheese holding everything together.  egg rolls, gluten free It wasn't a problem. The important thing was to make a tight roll and then place it seam side down on the baking sheet. The heat sealed the seam perfectly, and the gluten-free egg rolls came out super crispy. What I love about these egg rolls is there is no frying.

Gluten-Free Stromboli Bread

This gluten-free stromboli bread is filled with cheese, pepperoni, Italian salami and pizza sauce. And the topping is made with extra cheese and herbs. Think of it as rolled pizza and made into a baked sandwich. This Stromboli bread is even more delicious when dipped in extra pizza sauce.  stromboli bread 

What is stromboli?

Stromboli is like a pizza that is rolled like a cinnamon roll, baked and then sliced. You could use either pizza dough or bread dough to make stromboli. The filling can consist of various cold cuts, low moisture mozzarella cheese, pizza sauce or sliced vegetables. You can pretty much use the same ingredients that you would use on a pizza. gluten free stromboli 

How to make stromboli?

To start, you make a yeast dough, the same as if you would make a pizza or Italian bread. The dough is rolled into a rectangle and then layered with pizza sauce, meat, sometimes veggies and cheese. Rool it into a cinnamon style roll, top with more cheese and herbs and bake. I recommend using a low moisture mozzarella so that the inside of the stromboli doesn't get too soggy and bakes thoroughly..stromboli I wanted to make this gluten-free stromboli recipe into a bread loaf, so I used a loaf pan. The pan gave me height, which is what I was looking for. However, typically you would place the rolled stromboli on a baking tray keeping it flatter. So you can make it either way.   stromboli, gluten-free  

Who invented this baked Italian sandwich?

Although the pizza like baked sandwich sounds Italian, it was founded in 1944 by Nazzereno Romano, who owned an Italian restaurant in Delaware county. So stromboli originated in the USA and was founded by an Italian.When I decided to develop a gluten-free version of stromboli, I knew it had to be simple enough for anyone to make. So, I created a simple pizza/bread dough recipe that is easy to roll out using only a few ingredients. This gluten-free dough is super easy.And remember, when you measure the dry ingredients, always measure by gently spooning the flour into a cup, then sweeping off any excess. I can't stress enough how important this step is for the best results. This method goes for all gluten-free baking. gluten free stromboli Stromboli is great because it can replace sandwiches and give you the feeling of eating a pizza. And, who doesn't like a pizza? Adding a fresh homemade pizza sauce for dipping makes this gluten-free Italian sandwich insanely good!Because stromboli is best when served fresh and warm, I recommend reheating leftovers. Loosely wrap them in foil paper and pop them into a preheated oven at 375 F for about 8 - 10 minutes to get that freshly baked tasting stromboli and warm gooey cheese.Next time you think of baking gluten-free bread to make sandwiches or a pizza, try this gluten-free stromboli bread recipe. To enjoy stromboli bread, all you have to do is slice it. Enjoy! pizza sauce 

Here is my version of the easiest homemade gluten-free pizza sauce

  • 1 Tbsp. Extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced or grated
  • 2 tsp. GF dried oregano
  • 1 tsp. GF dried basil
  • 1/2 tsp. GF dried thyme
  • Pinch of cayenne pepper if you wish
  • 13.5 oz canned tomato sauce
  • 1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • Sea salt and pepper to taste
Saute garlic in olive oil over medium-low heat until fragrant. Stir in oregano, basil, thyme and cayenne pepper if using. Add tomato sauce, bring to a simmer and cook for 5 minutes. Remove from the heat, stir in Parmesan cheese, and season with salt and pepper. Cool before spreading over the dough.For the latest recipes and tips, please like us on Facebook or follow us on Pinterest and  Instagram.

Cast Iron Pizza With Butter Chicken – Gluten Free

This cast iron pizza with butter chicken has the crispiest, crunchiest crust, just as if you made it in a pizza oven. The topping is made with the creamiest butter chicken and buffalo mozzarella cheese. The tender chicken is smothered in an Indian inspired sauce that sets this cast iron pizza apart from most. The buffalo mozzarella adds an extra creaminess that goes deliciously well with the butter chicken.I don't know where to start here! This cast iron pizza recipe is not your typical pizza. I combined Indian flavours with a classic crispy pizza crust. A little different, I know, but believe me, it is sooo good! If you love authentic food such as Indian, this pizza will satisfy both the pizza and the Indian cravings.  cast iron pizza Today I wanted to share something different. I was getting tired of the same old classics. Indian food such as butter chicken is often served with naan bread, so why not butter chicken on a pizza?To keep the sauce extra creamy, I topped the pizza with buffalo mozzarella. Yes, you could use mozzarella cheese, but it will not give you the creaminess. I feel that the cheese made this pizza extra special. buffalo mozzarella 

Difference between mozzarella and buffalo mozzarella?

Mozzarella cheese is firmer and is mostly made from cow's milk. On the other hand, buffalo mozzarella is softer, creamier and a lot more flavourful and is made from water buffalo milk. Water buffalos milk has nearly twice the fat content of cows milk making buffalo mozzarella superior to mozzarella made from cows milk.

Let's talk about cast iron pizza pan,

To date, I have not found a better way to make gluten-free pizza crust than the one I made today on a cast iron pizza pan. When it comes to gluten-free pizza, because the dough doesn't have gluten, which is vital in making pizza, the pizza will not crisp up as beautifully as if you were making a pizza crust with gluten. This is where the cast iron pizza pan comes in.Cast iron pizza pan comes with a thicker base for excellent heat retention and an even heat distribution to create that crispy restaurant-style crust you could only get if the pizza is made in a pizza oven. The cast-iron pan fortifies food with iron, which helps in your iron intake an essential mineral that our body needs.When the cast iron pan is properly seasoned, it forms a non-stick surface allowing you to cook with less fat. And the best part about this cast iron pizza pan is that you can use it to make tortillas, quesadillas, and eggs. It is also excellent for searing, grilling, broiling, roasting, BBQ grills and even open campfire. I wish I got mine earlier because there are so many uses for this easy to clean and maintain cast iron pan. cast iron pizza, gluten free 

What if you don't have a cast iron pizza pan?

I would recommend using a pizza pan with a perforated surface, pizza stone or cast-iron skillet. But I can honestly say this cast iron pizza pan has become my favourite kitchen essential.

Now for the gluten-free pizza recipe,

I used my easy go to gluten-free, yeast free pizza dough in this butter chicken pizza recipe. I like using a simple pizza dough when the topping is rich and flavourful. Plus, the dough is super easy to whip up, virtually five minutes. butter chicken 

For the butter chicken pizza topping,

As I mentioned earlier, this is not your typical pizza - it is better! To make the butter chicken topping is super easy. First, you marinate the chicken in an Indian spiced yogurt marinade. While the chicken is marinating, make the sauce by sauteing onions, then add spices, tomatoes, coconut milk and lime juice. Once the sauce starts to simmer, transfer the chicken with the marinade into the sauce and cook for 10 minutes. Done. pizza with butter chicken, gluten free I pre-bake the pizza crust for 10 minutes before I add the topping. The reason I did this, it kept the crust deliciously crunchy without becoming soggy. Then the final topping, my favourite buffalo mozzarella, makes everything creamier and super flavourful. It is like adding cream to the butter chicken. It doesn't get any better than this :-)

health benefits of lentils,

Lentils come in various colours. Brown, green, black, orange, gold and coral. All the lentils have different textures and flavours. However, nutritionally they are pretty much the same, except for black lentils. They are the healthiest. I like to use brown lentils because they are smaller than green lentils, and in my opinion, they have a better texture, and I prefer the flavour.Lentils grow in pods like beans and peas, so they are considered legumes. This tiny legume is low in calories and rich in dietary fiber, about 15.6 grams per cup of cooked lentils. This immune boosting lentil salad is especially delicious! vegan lentil stew I am super excited to share this Somali inspired lentil stew recipe, because it is naturally gluten-free, delicious, packed with healthy nutrients and quick and easy to make.

Gluten-Free Cappuccino Ganache Lace Cookies

These gluten-free cappuccino ganache lace cookies are heavenly. Think thin crispy cookie sandwich filled with a deliciously creamy cappuccino ganache filling. These cookies are fun to make, but more importantly, they are sooo GOOD! If you are a chocolate lover, these cappuccino ganache lace cookies will satisfy your craving for chocolate every time. The only thing I would like to add, these delicious gluten-free lace cookies are super addictive….so you may have to make some more very soon. lace cookies, gluten free 

how to make lace cookies,

Lace cookie is not your typical cookie recipe. First, all you need is five ingredients plus salt. Everything is mixed together and cooked in a saucepan for about three minutes until the sugar has dissolved. Drop the mixture with a teaspoonful on a baking sheet and bake for about eight minutes. The cookies will crisp up as they cool—a very easy gluten-free lace cookie recipe. ganache 

the cappuccino ganache,

There isn't an easier chocolate filling to make than this gluten-free cappuccino ganache. The ganache is made with gluten-free chocolate chips, heavy cream and instant coffee. You can omit the coffee if you want only chocolate ganache or make the lace cookies for kids. To make the cappuccino ganache, all you need is a double boiler and about four minutes. The chocolate and coffee are melted with the cream until silky smooth. And now you are ready to sandwich the cooled lace cookies.

things to know about making ganache,

Classic ganache is a mixture of melted chocolate and cream and tastes like truffles. For best results, always use good quality chocolate. You can make ganache from dark, milk or white chocolate. If you are using white chocolate, you can add colour and make the lace cookies look festive. The ganache will keep up to a month when refrigerated.Chocolate ganache is a 1:1 mixture of chocolate and cream. It is smooth, shiny and silky. The silky chocolate cream can be used as a filling, spread, frosting, toppings for cakes and my favourite dip for fresh fruit. I especially love fresh strawberries dipped in chocolate ganache.When making the ganache, if the ganache's temperature goes too high, the chocolate will separate from the fat, making the ganache oily and grainy. I recommend using a double boiler when making ganache for best results.To thicken ganache, keep adding chocolate and wait for it to melt. You must keep stirring it until the ganache reaches desired thickness. The ganache will thicken as it cools. To spread the ganache, warm it up before using it.can ganache be made with half and half or milk?Yes, you can use half and half, but you can't use milk because the ganache won't set up properly. By using half and half, you will also cut back on calories. The chocolate ganache will be just as delicious except a little lighter.  cappuccino lace cookies, gluten free 

how to make chocolate truffles?

The texture of ganache depends on the ratio of chocolate and cream. If you are looking to make a firm ganache to make truffles, add more chocolate. The ganache should be 2:1 ratio chocolate to cream for truffles. And, always use whipping cream or heavy whipping cream to make truffles. Once the mixture is cooled, it will firm up, and you can shape it into balls. You can roll the balls in pure cocoa powder or nuts to create basic truffles. When making chocolate truffles, always try to use the best chocolate.  chocolate truffles 

storing cappuccino ganache lace cookies,

The gluten-free cookies can stay at room temperature for 2 days, as long as they are kept in a cool place. If you have any cookies leftover, they should be refrigerated and will keep up to 10 days.If you like sandwich cookies, you may enjoy these gluten-free mocha chocolate chunk sandwich cookiesFor the latest recipes and tips, please like us on Facebook or follow us on Pinterest and  Instagram.

difference between preserves and jam
