Tandoori Roasted Sweet Potato Wedges With Raita – Vegan

Tandoori roasted sweet potato wedges with raita are beyond addicting. They are roasted with Indian spices, so there is plenty of flavours are soft on the inside and crispy on the outside. You have probably guessed by now that these sweet potato wedges are easy and as an added bonus healthy. Serving the wedges with raita takes them from simple to amazing. Raita is an Indian side dish of yogurt containing chopped cucumber, mint or cilantro and spices. The cooling savoury yogurt is just what these tandoori sweet potato wedges need. I find that baked sweet potatoes have a lot more flavour than fried, plus you don't have that extra unwanted oil. I am so excited to share this simple, delicious recipe with you, especially this time of year because finger food is very popular during football season and baseball playoffs. Best part, they are eaten with your hands, so no extra dishes just plenty of napkins. This is my favourite roasted sweet potato recipe!

Cream of Cauliflower Chicken & Potato Soup

October is one of my favourite months. The beautiful coloured leaves on the trees, the chilly weather and cozy warm soups, yes the best time of the year. This cream of cauliflower chicken and potato soup is most certainly one of them. Just think about it, creamy cauliflower, tender chicken and potatoes delicately flavoured with thyme and finished with fresh Parmesan cheese. Need I say more, really how delicious does this soup sound? I always double this soup recipe because it freezes well. I freeze the soup in small portions and that way I always have my favourite soup on hand. I must admit cauliflower is my favourite vegetable. Not only because it is super healthy and low in calories, but because it cooks quickly and makes everything taste yummy!! If you feel adventurous and want to really impress your family make some delicious gluten-free cheese and rosemary buttermilk biscuits to go with this hearty soup, I promise it's a win-win. Enjoy!

Cheese & Rosemary Buttermilk Biscuits (Gluten-Free)

If you love biscuits, you're going to love these gluten-free cheese and rosemary buttermilk biscuits. At our house, anything that has gravy must have biscuits. I promise you will fall in love with these buttery, cheesy, soft on the inside biscuits. I have also added rosemary and black pepper to this recipe both of which add so much flavour. For my family, there is nothing more comforting then a family get together with cozy comfort food, and this includes these savoury biscuits. Another way to serve these biscuits is for brunch with bacon and eggs or with hearty soups.

Honestly, I cannot think of a more delicious gluten-free sandwich made from leftovers and these biscuits. The best part, this is still a 30-minute recipe.

Baked Pears With Walnuts and Chocolate (Vegan, Gluten-Free)

Fall is my favourite time of the year, and so are pears :-) There is just something about a baked pear, it is juicy and citrusy entirely different from an apple. I have baked these pears with buttery walnut and chocolate topping adding crunch to this easy, healthy gluten-free dessert. This vegan dessert is best when it is warm…or not, both are equally delicious. I like to serve these tasty baked pears with coconut cream or ice cream as a dessert, but, if I have any baked pears left over, I serve them for breakfast with coconut yogurt or a late afternoon snack. YUM!

Turkey And Chickpea Moroccan Stew (Gluten-Free)

Thanksgiving, I know it's time to talk about leftovers the best part after the feast! If you are celebrating Canadian Thanksgiving, by now your turkey is in the oven, in the US your turkey feast is coming up. Every year I make turkey broth from the turkey bones, this is a must, but when I make a big bird I have plenty of leftover turkey meat. I am not a lover of sandwiches, because I find the turkey meat tends to get dry the next day, I prefer cozy and warm food especially during the dark, cold months. This year I wanted to make something a bit more exotic with the turkey leftovers. So here it is, I made a killer gluten-free turkey and chickpea Moroccan stew full of great flavour. I used spices such as cumin, chili pepper, turmeric and cardamom. Then I added chickpeas, tomatoes, collards and a few potatoes. But the best part…wait for it, raisins. Yes, raisins are what makes this stew beyond amazing! If you are not making turkey or are lacking leftovers use chicken or make it vegan without the meat. All you need is 30 minutes and one pot, making it a simple gluten-free meal and an easy cleanup. Please add this stew recipe to your favourites, it won't disappoint. Serve with gluten-free pull-apart soft rolls

Dates Apples & Sage Pork Chops (Gluten-Free)

These pork chops are, pan seared and baked with dates, apples and fresh sage. The dates add some sweetness to this savoury dish, and the apples, are coated with a little butter, cinnamon and nutmeg adding delicious flavour to the pork chops. For best results, it is essential to have a good quality skillet to sear meat. Investing in a good quality skillet makes searing effortless. I know Thanksgiving is just around the corner, and turkey is almost on everyone's menu, but for those that prefer something besides turkey, you should try these pork chops they are outstanding. The best part, this recipe include apples, so you don't need to add applesauce. I love to serve the tasty chops with creamy turnip and carrot mash, cauliflower mash with chives or sweet potato and acorn squash mash. You got it, something mashed and creamy. Totally a Thanksgiving meal without the turkey! Enjoy!

I know, let's move on to the recipe. The creamy Mac & cheese sauce is made with sweet roasted pumpkin, plenty of cheese, a little nutmeg, garlic and fresh sage. The delicious pumpkin cheese sauce is clinging to the pasta adding so much flavour. Oh my goodness the sauce is so good! If you have finicky eaters at home, this gluten-free pumpkin Mac & cheese is a great way to include some goodness in their diet.

I have added some freshly made bacon bits as a topping, but this is optional, although I highly recommend it.

Chinese Chicken Egg Roll In a Bowl – Gluten-Free

Inevitably as soon as October rolls around, we think of comfort food. Sometimes after a busy day  we are either too tired or short on time to make dinner, so we often opt for take-out. When I was growing up Chinese food was our favourite take-out food. For me, take-out food is no longer an option because of gluten, so I created one of my favourite Chinese take-out dishes. Made with just a few ingredients, I made a gluten-free chicken egg roll into a one-bowl meal. I ditched the wrapper and served the egg roll over rice. My favourite rice for this Chinese chicken egg roll is simple rice with parsley. I added some turmeric to the rice for colour and created a healthy one bowl gluten-free Chinese chicken egg roll in a bowl. If you like Chinese take-out you will love this family favourite chicken egg roll in a bowl with all the delicious flavours you remember. Have you checked out our bookstore for the latest gluten-free cookbooks?

Keto Baked Meatballs in Tomato Cream Sauce (Gluten-Free)

For me, this is an easy Keto Italian meal that is almost effortless. First, you make the meatballs, bake them and then add the sauce and bake a little longer. The sauce is deliciously spiced, creamy and takes less than 10 minutes to make. The meatballs are made with chicken, beef, zucchini, mushrooms and plenty of spices, making them outstanding! Combine the two, and you have a winning dinner for 6 or if you have hungry teenagers make it 4! This recipe makes 24 meatballs, so there is plenty for everyone. Total net carbs are approximately 10 grams per serving. To keep the carbs low I usually serve this keto baked meatballs in tomato cream sauce dish with zucchini noodles or zero carb noodles. But you can also serve it with spaghetti squash which has only 6.5 carbs per 100 grams. So what is the best part about this keto gluten-free dinner? Everything :-)

Keto Pumpkin Cream Cheese Swirl Muffin (Gluten-Free, Grain-Free)

Yes, it is officially fall, and all I see is pumpkin everywhere I go. So I decided to make a Keto pumpkin cream cheese swirl muffin, and yes the muffins are also gluten-free. The Keto Diet, Ketogenic Diet or LCHF is not your typical low carb high protein diet. In this diet, the ratios are moderate in protein, high in fat and low in carbohydrates. This macro-nutrient ratio lets the body to change from using carbs for energy to using fat. So, moving on to the pumpkin cream cheese swirl muffin recipe. First, let me say the muffin is sooo moist and delicately spiced with cinnamon, nutmeg and cardamom. Honestly, this keto muffin will scream at you eat more!!! I know, it did for me. The cream cheese swirl is made with pumpkin and is lightly flavoured with cinnamon, nutmeg and a little fresh lemon juice, you will love it! Just imagine a muffin melting in your mouth with a delicious creamy filling, all this and still keeping it Keto and gluten-free. A winner all the way, and only about 4 net carbs per muffin

Easy Thai Cashew Chicken Ramen (Gluten-Free)

By now the fall weather has set in and making healthy easy to prepare comfort food such as this Thai Cashew Chicken Ramen is a favourite at my house. Just imagine tasty creamy broth with loads of tender veggies and noodles, it doesn't get any better than this. In this recipe I have explored with a new flavour and added cashew butter, adding rich flavour bringing this gluten-free ramen to another level. Thai recipes traditionally use peanut butter, but too many people have severe allergies to peanuts, so I do not use peanut butter in any of my recipes. Honestly, this ramen is so delicious and so simple to make. After a long week or at the end of a busy day it is nice to sit down to the most flavourful hot bowl of Thai Cashew Chicken Ramen.

Chocolate Pecan Shortbread Squares (Gluten-Free)

When it comes to Thanksgiving in my home, traditionally it is pumpkin pie and chocolate pecan pie. This year I am breaking the tradition and will make chocolate pumpkin cake with ganache and these amazing chocolate pecan shortbread squares. Shortbread is festive on its own but add a chocolate pecan layer over the shortbread and, well you know what I am talking about. It screams delicious!! I promise you, this chocolate pecan shortbread dessert will melt in your mouth. I am still sticking to tradition, well sort of, by making chocolate pumpkin cake and chocolate pecan shortbread, just adding a little twist to my favourite gluten-free Holliday desserts.

Thanksgiving Brussel Sprouts

I must admit I don't like Brussel sprouts that much. Every year I create a new brussel sprout recipe hoping that one day I will start to like the little green cabbages. Well, this is the first year I finally came up with a recipe that I love! Yes, it took me only how many years? Too many! In this recipe, I added apples, walnuts, cranberries, nutmeg, fresh lemon juice and sweetened them with maple syrup. Wow, they are amazing! When I was testing the recipe, I could not stop eating the little cabbages. In this recipe, the Brussel sprouts are lightly caramelized, and by adding cranberries and apples, I added slight tart flavour. Finishing with walnuts, adding texture and earthy flavour. If you are like me and aren't crazy about Brussel sprouts, you should try this recipe, who knows you may change your mind as I did. If nothing else, eat just the apples, walnuts and cranberries and leave the tiny cabbages for others to enjoy!

Parsley Black Beans & Tomatoes Pasta (Gluten-Free, Vegan)

Today it's all about fast and easy gluten-free pasta recipe. I believe that Monday is a good pasta night. This ridiculously easy recipe is all about fresh parsley, black beans, fresh tomatoes and lots of garlic with olive oil all tossed with gluten-free pasta. Nothing is complicated in this recipe but put everything together, and you have a pretty amazing Italian meal. This is a vegan pasta recipe, but feel free to add some shredded leftover chicken in the mix or top with loads of grated Parmesan cheese. This is probably the easiest pasta recipe that I have made that is packed with so much goodness and flavour. Feeling adventurous, add gluten-free garlic cheese monkey bread for that ultimate Italian experience On a healthy note, I would like to add that not only does parsley enhance flavour in our food and is used for presentation, but it is also high in vitamin C, A, K and iron, all of which promote good health.
