Gluten-Free Puffed Rice Energy Bar

Need a boost of energy and deliciousness? Why not try this Gluten-Free Puffed Rice Energy Bar! This tasty puffed rice bar is made with pecans, pumpkin seeds, cranberries, honey, butter, puffed rice and a pinch of brown sugar and chocolate. The chocolate topping seriously makes this puffed rice bar insanely delicious. puffed rice energy bar, gluten-free 

the delicious details….

To start, this is not a rice crispy bar recipe. There are no marshmallows added, only healthy pecans, pumpkin seeds and antioxidant-rich cranberries. Yes, cranberries contain lots of antioxidants and vitamins beneficial for your body. I used only a splash of honey and a bit of brown sugar to sweeten this healthy gluten-free snack. puffed rice energy bar, gluten-free Since this puffed rice bar is topped with chocolate, I cut back on the sweetener typically used in the puffed rice bar.

easiest gluten-free puffed rice energy bar recipe…

To start, I briefly roasted the puffed rice with pecans and pumpkin seeds. The roasting brings out a rich nutty flavour to the energy bar and sets this gluten-free bar apart from most. While they are roasting, melt the butter with honey and brown sugar. This takes about a minute. Stir in the cranberries while the butter/honey mixture is still hot. By adding the cranberries to the hot syrup, the cranberries become sweeter.Now comes the fun part. To the same pot or a large saucepan, add the roasted puffed rice, pecans and pumpkin seeds and thoroughly combine to coat everything with the butter sauce.  puffed rice energy bar, gluten-free 

you must do this for the best puffed rice bar texture…

Once everything is combined, transfer the mixture into a square 8-ich dish and press down FIRMLY all over. By firmly pressing the mixture, everything will stick together. gluten-free energy bar 

the chocolate topping…

The topping takes virtually 3 - 4 minutes to make. Using a double boiler, place one cup of gluten-free chocolate chips and 1/4 cup of half and half cream or coconut milk into the saucepan. Allow the chocolate chips to melt and stir with the cream until smooth.As soon as the chocolate is smooth, spread it over the puffed rice mixture. Place the dish in the fridge for 30 minutes allowing it to set. Now the gluten-free puffed rice energy bar is ready to be sliced and enjoyed. Nothing to it! It took me only 10 minutes to prepare this gluten-free energizing snack, plus the chilling time. puffed rice energy bar, gluten-free 

what is puffed rice, and can you make it at home?

Think of puffed rice like popcorn. The grains pop by the effect of heat and get puffed. Puffed rice is super easy to make, but it takes time. If you can't find gluten-free puffed rice in the supermarket, make your own. 

👨🏼‍🍳 here is the puffed rice recipe:

First, the rice is soaked in water, then cooked in water. The ratio is 1 - 1 / one cup of rice to one cup of water. The best rice to use is basmati rice or long grain rice.
  • Soak the rice in water for 10 minutes, rinse and drain until the water runs clear
  • Place rice with an equal amount of water into a saucepan, bring to a boil and cook over low heat for 30 minutes. Do not follow the package directions because the rice should be well cooked, almost overcooked. You can add sugar or salt, depending on the flavour you are looking for
  • Next, the rice has to be dried. Spread the rice on a dry clean towel or paper towels and allow it to dry. This can take anywhere from 12 - 24 hours. The rice has to be fully dry.
  • Once the rice is dry, grease a large rimmed baking tray with oil (I like to use coconut oil) and scatter the rice evenly on the tray. Bake for 2 hours in a preheated oven at 125 F, then cool.
I consider this gluten-free puffed rice energy bar on the healthier side because it has protein, antioxidants, fiber, healthy fats and carbohydrates. Carbs are important for fueling exercise. And this healthy snack will most certainly give you energy. The best part, even the pickiest eaters....like kids, love these bars—what a great way to add healthy nutrition to their diet. Enjoy!If you are looking for foods that will fuel you with energy, check out these gluten-free tasty recipes

Gluten-Free Country Blueberry Cornbread

There is nothing more satisfying with a cup of coffee than a slice of Country Blueberry Cornbread. This gluten-free cornbread is everything, studded with healthy blueberries, buttery, moist and just so good! How perfect is this cornbread for a snack or Sunday brunch?The best part about this gluten-free blueberry cornbread is how quick and easy it comes together. All you need is a gluten-free flour blend, cornflour, butter, milk, apple cider vinegar, a sweetener and delicious blueberries. You don't even need an electric mixer, so less mess to clean up. Doesn't this cornbread sound simple?I love quick bread recipes like this gluten-free blueberry cornbread. It takes just minutes to put together with exceptional results. The cornflour adds hearty country flavour making this snack most satisfying. blueberry cornbread, gluten free 

essential tips for gluten-free blueberry cornbread...

To make the cornbread work for you, there are few things to know. First, this recipe calls for corn flour, not cornmeal. We know that cornmeal and cornflour are both made from dried corn. The big difference is cornmeal is gritty, and cornflour is smooth. It is the degree of milling that determines the texture. By using cornflour in this recipe, the texture of the cornbread is soft and moist. cornbread batter, gluten free Cornbread is typically not too sweet. This is why this recipe has only 3/4 cups of coconut sugar. If you are looking for a sweet loaf, this recipe isn't it. I used coconut sugar because it has a lower glycemic index - no sugar spikes like granulated sugar. The coconut sugar also gives the bread a rich golden colour.   blueberry cornbread, gluten free For the fruit, I used fresh blueberries. Yes, you can use frozen ones, however, the flavour and freshness of the blueberries don't compare. So if you are looking for freshness, use fresh blueberries. Also, do not add more blueberries than the recipe calls for. This is cornbread, not a sweet bread.This gluten-free recipe calls for butter. If you checked out my quickbread recipes, such as the Gluten-Free Apricot Almond Quick Bread or the Gluten-Free Dutch Apple Quick Bread, most of them are made with olive oil. I tried to make this cornbread recipe with olive oil, but it didn't cut it. The bread was too dry. So butter is the way to go. blueberry cornbread, gluten free To keep this cornbread extra moist, I used a combination of milk and apple cider vinegar or fresh lemon juice. I tried to use buttermilk, but it didn't give me the same texture as the milk. The bread was a little too heavy. blueberry cornbread, gluten free Finally, even though this quickbread recipe takes just minutes to whip up, you can't rush the baking. You must bake the gluten-free cornbread at a lower temperature and for a minimum of one hour for best results. I know, a slow process, but well worth the wait. You don't want a soggy and mushy cornbread. blueberry cornbread, gluten free 

the craziest advice about gluten-free cornbread...

This blueberry cornbread tastes so good when you slather it with jam or marmalade. There is something about the combination of cornbread and a sweet spread. Trust me on this...you will love it.

Gluten-Free Chicken Cordon Bleu Pasta

This super easy Gluten-Free Chicken Cordon Bleu Pasta dish is the perfect easy gluten-free dinner recipe. A chicken cordon bleu inspired recipe updated to a gluten-free pasta dish. Gluten-free pasta mixed with rich and creamy garlic and basil sauce with tender chicken, layered with ham, Swiss or provolone cheese and creamy ricotta with spinach made in one skillet. chicken cordon bleu pasta, gluten free In this layered skillet meal, every bite is filled with creaminess, chicken, spinach and pasta. The saltiness of ham and creaminess of two kinds of cheese with spinach create unforgettable flavours. This chicken cordon bleu pasta dinner is easy enough to enjoy any night of the week. And it is the perfect comfort food.Sharing the easiest pasta dish and keeping the gluten-free dinner super tasty and satisfying is what the dish is all about! Pasta is probably one of the most loved foods. Add a rich, creamy sauce hinted with basil and garlic, chicken, cheese, ham, and creamy spinach, and you can easily serve this dish for a special occasion.Today's inspiration came from one of my favourite meals - the chicken cordon bleu. This gluten-free pasta dinner recipe is a step above the classic chicken cordon bleu recipe. I wanted to keep this French-inspired recipe as a hearty one-pot meal, so I added pasta and fresh spinach. chicken cordon bleu pasta, gluten free 

Healthier chicken cordon bleu pasta…

As with most of my gluten-free recipes, I wanted to add extra healthiness. So I added healthy fresh baby spinach. To keep the spinach creamy, I mixed it with ricotta. Compared to most cheeses, ricotta is a healthier choice because it contains less fat and salt. Ricotta adds creaminess without adding extra calories. cordon bleu sauce 

All the details…

To start, I cooked the pasta in well salted water. It would be best if you cooked the pasta al dente, cooked but firm to the bite. I prefer to slightly undercook the pasta because it will continue cooking in the oven. While the pasta is cooking using a large oven proof skillet, brown the chicken in olive oil or butter. The browning of the chicken is what will add flavour to the sauce. chicken cordon bleu, gluten free Once the chicken is browned, add the cream or milk, chicken broth, tapioca starch garlic and basil. Bring the sauce to a simmer and cook until the sauce starts to thicken. Transfer half of the sauce with chicken to a bowl and then add the pasta to the same skillet. Mix the sauce, chicken and pasta until combined. chicken cordon bleu pasta, gluten free 

Start the layers…

The dish now has a layer of creamy pasta. Add a layer of ham, a mixture of spinach and ricotta, cheese slices, the remaining sauce with chicken, ham, and finish with cheese. Pop the skillet in the oven for about thirty minutes. The cheese will become golden brown and the ham crispy. chicken cordon bleu pasta, gluten free   This gluten-free chicken cordon bleu pasta is a simple and delicious pasta dinner made almost in only one skillet. I cooked the pasta separately as not to take away from the flavourful creamy sauce and to keep it saucy.To serve this gluten-free meal, spoon the pasta into bowls, and if you wish, sprinkle with hot chilli pepper flakes. This pasta dinner is simple and delicious, but even more importantly, everyone loves pasta! If you need more pasta meals, check out our favourite gluten-free pasta recipes.

Roast Fish with Cannellini Beans Sundried Tomatoes and Greens

The Mediterranean-inspired healthy Roast Fish with Cannellini Beans, Sundried Tomatoes and Greens dish is an easy gluten-free dinner recipe. The flaky fish is nestled in a bed of earthy, slightly nutty flavoured cannellini beans, sweet-tart sun-dried tomatoes, mellow collard greens and shallots with olive oil and herby thyme. This healthy spring recipe is about goodness and deliciousness, all in a one-dish meal.This naturally gluten-free fish dinner is one of those times when you are short on time to make a healthy meal for your family. To make this simple dinner recipe, you will need only one dish, cannellini beans, sundried tomatoes, greens such as collards, white fish and thirty minutes.For the flavour, I used the herb thyme because this fish recipe does not require complicated flavours. The chewy sun-dried tomatoes add plenty of sweet-tart flavour to this Mediterranean dish. cannellini beans Cannellini is a white kidney bean very popular in central and southern Italy and Greece. However, this earthy flavoured bean was first developed in Argentina. Cannelini is one of the more popular beans because of its high fiber and protein content.A 1/4 cup of cannellini has a whopping 11 grams of protein, 11 grams of fiber and 3 mg of iron. These beans are a healthy addition for those that follow a plant-based diet because of their high plant-based protein. sund dried tomatoes Sun-dried tomatoes are an excellent source of lycopene and antioxidants. Both promote a healthy body and are known in some cases to reduce the risk of age-related macular degeneration and some types of cancers.

substitutions…

In this healthy fish dinner recipe, I used dry sun-dried tomatoes. You can also use sun-dried tomatoes packed in olive oil. However, without the moisture of olive oil, the flavour is more pungent, boosting the taste of the dish.  collard greens 

greens…

I have added collards for the greens because of their mild flavour and tender leaves. But, you can use other greens such as kale, Nappa cabbage, spinach or bok choy.If you would like to change up the cannellini, you can use garbanzo beans (chickpeas) or navy beans. 

the roast fish…

In this Mediterranean-inspired recipe, I recommend using white fish. I used cod. Cod is a good firm fish, and when cooked, it is deliciously flaky. Another good fish to use would be halibut or sea bass. The name white fish doesn't mean the colour of the fish, but rather the mild flavoured fish that cooks quickly and easily absorbs flavours.  roast fish dinner 

the herbs...

To flavour the fish and veggies, I used the herb thyme. Thyme goes exceptionally well with beans, tomatoes and fish. Other herbs that you can use are oregano, basil or fresh Italian flat-leaf parsley.In this roast fish recipe with cannellini beans, sun-dried tomatoes and greens combination, there is no need to add too much seasoning. The cannellini, tomatoes and greens all compliment each other, making the entire meal super flavourful. The mild flavour of thyme, olive oil and fresh lemon juice is all you need to flavour this roast fish dinner. roast fish with cannelloni beans, sun dried tomatoes and greens You can serve up this Mediterranean roast fish dish just as is keeping it on the lighter side. Or, add a slice of Gluten-Free Italian Parmesan Bread to soak up all the tasty juices from the veggies and olive oil. To feed big appetites, I would add Buttery Parsley and Garlic Potatoes.This roast fish dinner is all about healthy, nutrient-packed ingredients but keeping the meal light, satisfying and flavourful. Enjoy!

Gluten-Free Chicken Ramen Noodle Salad

Quick and simple Gluten-Free Chicken Ramen Noodle Salad. An Asian-inspired noodle salad with honey-ginger chicken, bok choy, red cabbage, bell peppers, carrots, red onions, cilantro and ramen noodles, tossed in a light ginger vinaigrette. Not only is this ramen noodle salad insanely delicious, but this is also an immune-boosting salad filled with nutrient-dense veggies. This gluten-free ramen recipe is for those nights when you need something on the table in 30 minutes—a perfect weeknight meal low in calories filled with so much goodness. chicken ramen noodle salad, gluten free 

why is this an immune-boosting noodle salad?

The veggies I have chosen for this salad are nothing short of nutrients. And, raw veggies will yield the most nutrition overall. The red cabbage is a powerhouse of vitamins and minerals, especially vitamin C — a powerful antioxidant. Bok choy is a cruciferous vegetable that has certain anti-cancer properties. Carrots, bell peppers and red onions are also on top of the list with immune-boosting properties.This chicken ramen noodle salad is for those nights when you crave a satisfying meal that is light and flavourful. There is nothing more satisfying than a bowl of deliciously flavoured noodles, fresh veggies and honey ginger chicken. Yes, a perfect weeknight meal for spring or summer. All the veggies in this salad are low in calories and rich in dietary fiber, keeping this salad light and fresh tasting.

what's not to love about noodles and chicken?

Let me show you how easy it is to make this quick and simple ramen noodle salad. First, cook the noodles. They take about 5 minutes to cook. Drain them and rinse with cold water. The cold water will remove the extra starch and stop them from sticking together.Next, season the chicken with honey, garlic, ginger and sesame oil. Heat a large skillet and cook the chicken. To the same pan, add the bok choy and briefly sear on all sides. chicken ramen noodle salad, gluten free 

now on to the salad…

The tasty ginger vinaigrette is super easy. Just whisk everything together. Now you are ready to put the salad together. First, start with the raw veggies, chicken, cilantro and half the vinaigrette. By adding some of the vinaigrette to the veggies first, they will become extra tasty. If you were to toss everything together, including the noodles. Most of the vinaigrette will be absorbed by the noodles, and the veggies would lack flavour.

next…

Now that the veggies and chicken are well flavoured add the bok choy, noodles and the remaining ginger vinaigrette. The bok choy is seared first, so it has plenty of flavour. And the extra vinaigrette now adds flavour to the noodles. What's not to love about this gluten-free chicken ramen noodle salad? 

which noodles are best for gluten-free ramen noodle salad?

Classic ramen noodles are made with wheat flour. To keep this noodle salad gluten-free and still have the traditional Asian ramen noodles, I used my favourite gluten-free ramen noodles. You can find them on Amazon or Wholefoods. If you prefer brown rice noodles, Lotus foods have organic brown rice ramen. If you can't get ramen noodles, alternately, you can use any gluten-free noodles. So, any long pasta will work.

veggie substitutions….

I found the combination of bok choy, red cabbage, bell pepper, carrot, and red onions were perfect for this noodle dish because the veggies are sooo good when they are marinated. However, you can use the veggies you have on hand, but they should be thinly sliced, allowing them to absorb the delicious ginger vinaigrette. Some other choices would be asparagus, green cabbage, kale, celery, cucumber, radishes, green onions, arugula, broccoli...you decide. chicken ramen noodle salad, gluten free 

What I love about this chicken ramen noodle salad the most…

As you can see, this recipe comes together quickly and easily using simple pantry ingredients. But, what I love the most, you can make this noodle salad well in advance and keep it in the fridge to enjoy when you are ready. Just bring the salad to room temperature first, get a big bowl, chopsticks and enjoy! YUMAre you looking for more Asian-inspired salad recipes? Here are three of my favourites.

Gluten-Free Zesty Blueberry Scones

Gluten-Free Zesty Blueberry Scones…filled with fresh blueberries and a hint of fresh lemon flavour. Scone recipe is probably the easiest to make, and more importantly, these buttery scones will melt in your mouth with fresh blueberries bursting in every bite. If you love warm scones filled with healthy blueberries, this gluten-free scone recipe is for you!  zesty blueberry scones, gluten free There is nothing more satisfying than a freshly baked warm scone right out of the oven. Check out this Gluten-Free Maple Oat Nut Scone, so…so… good! This gluten-free blueberry scone recipe can be finished with a light sprinkle of turbinado sugar or a fresh lemon glaze. The combination of sweet healthy blueberries and fresh lemon juice is just the best! zesty blueberry scones, gluten free 

before you start the zesty blueberry scone recipe...

Have you ever made gluten-free sones, and they were dry and heavy or too crumbly? To get that perfect texture of scones, there are a couple of things you need to know. First, freeze the butter for about fifteen minutes before adding it to the flour. The frozen butter will make the scones buttery and not caky. I also start with cold milk and cold eggs.

measuring the flour...

I know it is easier to dip the measuring cup into the flour. However, gluten-free flour is made with various flours and starches and has to be measured properly, or you will have more flour than the recipe requires. I bet you made a muffin batter or a cake batter in the past and found that it was too dry? And more often than not, we blame it on the recipe. No…this happens when the flour is measured incorrectly. To measure the flour, use a scoop to fill the measuring cup, then level the flour off with a knife.  blueberry scones, gluten free 

do not overwork the dough...

This is not a cake; you don't want to be mixing the ingredients until smooth. Once you cut in the butter, add the wet ingredients and mix just until you form a dough. This step is vital. If you overmix, you will have dry hard scones.

fresh or frozen blueberries...

In this recipe, I used fresh blueberries! Fresh blueberries are abundant in the stores now, so why not use them. The good bakeries with the best scones always use fresh blueberries. Sure, you can use frozen blueberries, but the scones will not have the same texture and fresh blueberry flavour. I highly recommend using fresh fruit when available to make scones.

lemon glaze or not...

If you like your scones sweeter, then go ahead and drizzle the scones with a lemon glaze. I feel the sweetness from the blueberries is perfect. So I only sprinkle a little turbinado sugar over the dough just before baking and skip the glaze. zesty blueberry scones, gluten free 

serving the scones...

Gluten-free sones are best the same day when they are baked. And, they should be served slightly warm. For leftover scones, place them in an airtight container and just before serving, pop them in a hot oven for about ten minutes. Or, you can heat the blueberry scones in a microwave for about ten seconds. Enjoy for breakfast, brunch or a snack.

Spring Mediterranean Rice Dish

The simplest Mediterranean Rice Dish with Parmesan Cheese for the spring nights ahead. This rice is made with broccoli rabe, cherry tomatoes and spinach with a touch of garlic, olive oil, apple cider vinegar and basil—a Mediterranean style naturally gluten-free spring dinner for any night of the week.Leaping into spring with fresh and healthy recipes. The abundance of rainbow coloured spring produce making its way into the stores makes creating healthy recipes a breeze. This vegetarian recipe is a combination of warming rice and light spring flavours. broccoli rabe 

what is broccoli rabe?

To be clear, broccoli rabe, also known as rapini, is not broccoli. This scraggly plant is related more to turnip. The rapini has a slightly bitter taste, and the entire plant is edible, stems, buds and leaves. This deep green plant is rich in fiber, and vitamins, minerals and antioxidants.This naturally gluten-free Mediterranean inspired rice dish is unique because the rice is combined with fresh veggies. The lightly blanched broccoli rabe is marinated with fresh cherry tomatoes and spinach in a light vinaigrette flavoured with fresh garlic and basil. What makes this healthy rice dish stand out is the Parmesan cheese. The cheese adds saltiness and flavour, making this vegetarian rice meal extra delicious.

for the details…

You will find that this spring Mediterranean rice recipe comes together quickly and easily. You will need only about thirty minutes from start to finish.Start with the veggies. The broccoli rabe is lightly blanched, just long enough to take the crunch away. The fresh cherry tomatoes and baby spinach are marinated with heart-healthy olive oil, apple cider vinegar, garlic and basil. Then the marinated veggies are tossed with the broccoli rabe and parmesan cheese. broccoli rabe While the veggies are soaking up the flavours, it is time to cook the rice. Using long-grain rice is the key to this rice recipe. I use gluten-free basmati rice, which is long-grain rice. Basmati rice is aromatic and super flavourful. spring Mediterranean rice 

the finishing touch for this Mediterranean rice dish…

You have the well-flavoured veggies ready, and the rice is cooked. It's time to put it all together. Get a large dish or a bowl, add the veggies and the rice while it's still hot, and gently toss everything together. Serve it up while it's warm with an extra sprinkle of parmesan cheese and, if you wish, a sprinkle of red pepper flakes. Mediterranean rice That is all it takes to make this healthy Spring Mediterranean Rice Dish. This rice recipe is a meal on its own and makes a perfect springtime dinner whenever you want to keep the meal vegetarian. However, you can also serve the rice as a side with your favourite protein. The best part, you don't have to add a side of veggies or a salad because this hearty rice recipe has it all. Enjoy!Need other spring rice recipes? Here are a few you should give a try.

Best Cabbage Roll Soup – Gluten Free

I can't tell you how excited I am to share this Cabbage Roll Soup recipe. I can honestly say this is the best cabbage roll soup. This soup's insanely delicious flavour comes from lean ground beef, grated sweet potatoes, bell peppers, cabbage wedges, crushed tomatoes, onions, garlic, and spices. To make this cabbage soup extra satisfying, I added a handful of rice or quinoa. cabbage roll soup, gluten free This naturally gluten-free soup recipe is not the classic full-on tomato sauce cabbage roll soup. There is no added sugar, and there are extra veggies. The sweet potato that is grated into the soup adds natural sweetness and flavour. The bell peppers add a unique flavour that goes exceptionally well with the cabbage and tomatoes. And, by replacing the tomato sauce with crushed tomatoes, the soup has just a hint of tomato. Let us be serious - this is not tomato soup!As with many cabbage roll recipes, the one ingredient that is often added is rice. In this healthy soup recipe, you have a choice to add rice or superfood called quinoa. Both ingredients work exceptionally well in this cabbage roll soup recipe. If you are looking to keep this a low-carb soup, you can skip the rice or quinoa altogether. green cabbage 

the cabbage roll soup details,

To be clear, this soup is not about chopping the wedgies and throwing everything together to cook. This is the reason why I stand behind saying this is the Best Cabbage Roll Soup Recipe. To start, the beef has to be browned. To do this, make sure the oil is super hot before adding the meat. I always bring my ground beef to room temperature before cooking. This makes it breaking up the meat easier while it is browning. The browned beef is what sets the rich beefy flavour. cabbage wedges Once the beef is browned, add the spices, bell peppers, grated sweet potatoes and generously season with salt. I do not add salt until this point. If you add salt to the beef while it is browning, it will release moisture, and the meat will take longer to brown.Now come the crushed tomatoes, water, apple cider vinegar and cabbage wedges. It is essential to place the wedges on top of the soup and not mix them into the soup. This way, they will hold their shape and will look beautiful for presentation. cabbage roll soup, gluten free If you are adding rice or the superfood quinoa, now is the time to do it. Sprinkle the rice or quinoa over the cabbage, and using a spoon, gently immerse into the soup—cover and cook for additional 10 minutes. Then, rest the soup for additional 15 minutes allowing the rice or quinoa to finish cooking.I do not add the grains into the soup from the start because they become mushy and fill the soup with starch. The gluten-free grains should have a firm to bite texture, making them super tasty because they are cooked in the soup's broth. cabbage roll soup, gluten free 

How to serve the healthy cabbage roll soup?

The soup has everything. Tender beef, veggies, perfect cabbage wedges, delicious broth and grains cooked to perfection. When serving the soup, carefully place a cabbage wedge or two in a bowl, add the meaty vegetable broth and sprinkle with fresh parsley. I often like to add a thick Greek yogurt or light sour cream. The creaminess adds extra richness and makes the soup extra delicious.  cabbage roll soup, healthy Cabbage roll soup is super hearty, so you don't need to add anything to make it a complete meal. However, a robust, healthy soup always goes well with a slice of gluten-free French bread. Next time you crave Hungarian cabbage rolls, give this healthy soup a try. I promise you may never go back to making cabbage rolls. Enjoy!

Creamy Salmon Pasta – Gluten Free

Need a quick healthy gluten-free pasta dinner recipe? Look no further. This  creamy salmon pasta dish is a gluten-free meal made in under 30 minutes. The creamy sauce is filled with seared fresh salmon, zucchini and cherry tomatoes. The creaminess comes from coconut milk and cheese.  creamy salmon pasta This is not your typical gluten-free Italian pasta meal. The sauce is mildly flavoured with Thai spices, a pinch of basil and coconut milk. To make the pasta sauce extra creamy, I added Gruyere cheese. The sauce is light, not overly heavy, with cream and cheeses, showcasing the healthy salmon and fresh veggies.

Creamy salmon pasta dinner under 30 minutes.

I love this healthy salmon dinner recipe. It takes just minutes to whip up, and the results are outstanding. This creamy salmon pasta dish is simple enough for a weeknight meal and special enough for when the company is coming. creamy salmon pasta, gluten free 

So much flavour!

To start, the salmon is seasoned with basil, salt and pepper. Then it is seared, keeping the juices and flavours of this delicious healthy fish. Once the salmon is ready, using the same skillet, add garlic and zucchini. The flavour in the skillet from the salmon blends deliciously with the fresh zucchini.Now that the salmon is ready and the zucchini lightly cooked with garlic, I added some Thai red curry paste, coconut milk and cheese. Once the cheese starts to melt, add the fresh cherry tomatoes and return the salmon pieces to the skillet.  creamy salmon pasta dinner The sauce is now ready for the pasta. The pasta is gently tossed with the sauce until well coated. I often add some pasta water to the sauce if the sauce is too thick. I like to rest the pasta for about 15 minutes before serving. The sauce will thicken, and the pasta will absorb the flavours from the tasty sauce. gluten free pasta 

How to cook gluten-free pasta?

Not all gluten-free pasta takes the same time to cook. So it is essential to follow the package directions. My most favourite gluten-free pasta is the Barilla pasta. I can honestly say this pasta has never disappointed me. The pasta is made with two flours, corn and rice. There are other varieties, but my family and I love this pasta the best!To cook the pasta, make sure the water is well salted and not overcook the pasta. The pasta should be cooked al dente - cooked but firm to the bite. To cook pasta al dente, drain it around 2-3 minutes before the cooking time mentioned on the package. Italians always slightly undercook their pasta. creamy salmon pasta dinner, gluten free 

Is slightly undercooked pasta healthier?

Slightly undercooked pasta means that our stomach's digestive enzymes take longer to break down the starch into sugars. Overcooking pasta increases its glycemic index (GI), which taxes organs such as the pancreas, and could lead to diabetes and obesity in the long run.

Salt or no salt in the water?

When pasta is cooked in salty water, the pasta will absorb some salt while cooking. The salt makes the pasta more flavourful and makes the entire dish more delicious.To serve this most delicious Italian-Thai inspired creamy salmon pasta dish, I like to give it a good sprinkle of freshly grated Parmesan cheese and fresh herbs. And what goes well with pasta dinner? It all depends. If you are looking to lighten the meal up, add our healthy rainbow salad. If you have big appetites to feed, add a side of our quick and easy gluten-free cheese and garlic flatbread. Yum!

Before coming up with this easy version of Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Cookie, I had to try numerous times in the kitchen before getting it right. gluten-free desserts I have enjoyed the results, and hopefully you will too :-)  chocolate chips Chocolate chip cookie is a household name. For every child who learned to bake or cook, the chocolate chip cookies mix was more often than not the first recipe they learned. While there is a lot of love for chocolate chip cookies, for health reasons, gluten, while safe for everyone, is not safe for some people with specific health conditions.  chocolate chip cookies, gluten free 

What is gluten?

Gluten is a protein that is present in cereals like barley, wheat, rye, and spelt. It gives dough its viscoelasticity, a gluey texture where the name Gluten is derived. It's the stretchiness that chewy pretzels have, the chewiness that delicious baguettes are known for. Yet, so many people have to avoid it today. chocolate chips Gluten is not a single molecule but an amalgamation of proteins. Although these proteins are essential for the survival of wheat plants, in humans, they may cause a range of health problems, including schizophrenia, irritable bowel syndrome, and weight gain. They may also contribute to autism and multiple sclerosis. gluten-free chocolate chip cookies 

Why is gluten in my food?

As mentioned above, gluten is a protein mix found in grains like wheat, barley, and rye. Following a Gluten-Free diet means you have to remove it from your diet. Others follow a gluten-free diet due to experiencing symptoms such as fatigue, joint pain, gastrointestinal issues, or bloating. However, there are many other health concerns related to consuming gluten, including increased risk of heart disease, diabetes, or cancer. Foods produced using wheat have the highest amount of gluten. Gluten adds a stretchy quality to baked foods, and it gives bread the chewy texture we are familiar with.Gluten mix is also used as a thickener for foods as well as to improve flavour and texture. While these may seem like valid reasons to have gluten in our food, it causes adverse reactions and health problems in some people. Gluten is a protein that contains peptides. These peptides are resistant to the acids found in our stomach, making them difficult to digest for some people. This can cause mild indigestion but can become worse, leading to serious health problems.With the controversy surrounding gluten, it is best to opt for a gluten-free diet. Many people mistake the fact that avoiding something does not have to be when you become sick. Staying away from recipes that contain gluten will do your body a whole lot of good, and that is why I'm here to help – serving you with gluten-free recipes like these gluten-free chocolate chip cookies that you will love and enjoy.

However, you can also use a baking pan of your choice. I used a springform pan because the pan is easy to use, and the dessert looks super pretty. Irish cream liqueur, gluten free 

Is Irish cream liqueur gluten-free?

When following a gluten-free diet, you must check with the manufacturer that the Irish cream liqueur you are using is gluten-free. Irish cream liqueur is made with Irish whiskey, cream and other flavourings. It is the added flavours that may not be gluten-free.Several brands claim their Irish cream liqueur is gluten-free - Bailey's, Carolans and St. Brendan's. Again, please double check the brand you are using to avoid being glutened. To be on the safe side, make one from scratch.

Greek yogurt parmesan pasta sauce variations.

TIPS

 

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. 

meat,

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,

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

How is crazy crust pizza different?

First, the crust is made with liquid batter and not the typical pizza dough.

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.
