Gluten free, it's not a bad thing

Pomegranate and Halloumi salad with Strawberry Vinaigrette Dressing

The sweet fruity flavours of the pomegranate and strawberry vinaigrette go well with the salty halloumi  and crunchy almonds.

Gluten-Free Pulled Pork Burrito Bowls

IMG_2814.jpgThis is a favourite week night meal that everyone can make to their liking.  I use black rice as a base and add black beans, chopped fresh tomato, shallots, jalapeños, guacamole, cheese and salsa. For a quick week night meal  just fry up some minced beef with mexican seasoning, if you’ve got more time try it with pulled pork in the slow cooker.

Gluten-Free Zucchini Fritters

I made these zucchini fritters as a bit of a healthier alternative to the boiled egg on two pieces of (gluten-free) toast that I’ve been having for breakfast almost everyday for about two years now.  I’m conscious of trying to add more vegetables to my diet and I think zucchini fritters make a good substitute for the bread.

Mixed Seeds

imageThis is an easy way to add flavour, fibre and lots of goodness to a variety of dishes. My seed mix contains buckwheat (surprisingly gluten-free despite the name), slivered almonds, sesame seeds, pepitas, sunflower seeds, chia seeds and linseed (flax seeds). I combine them all in an airtight container and shake.

Gluten-Free Minestrone Soup

Right, ok sorry.  It’s been a busy year so far and I haven’t kept up with my blog. Don’t worry I’ve still had time for great cooking and some new recipes – just not the time to add them here.  I’ll do better, promise. Let’s add another winter recipe, a classic minestrone soup with gluten free stock and pasta of course.

I like my soup so thick you could almost eat it with a fork.

A good hearty soup should be chunky and thick not drippy and watery.
