Gluten-Free Onion — Menu Plan October 16

By · Comments (0) · Print This Post Print This Post

Onion is the theme for this week’s Gluten-Free Menu Swap. Onions are used in a lot of recipes for added flavor. Did you know it also has good nutritional content? According to The World’s Healthiest Foods, Onion is a good source of Vitamins B6 and C, Biotin, Manganese, Copper, Fiber, Folate, and more. Considering its health benefits of being anti-microbial, anti-oxidant, and anti-inflammatory, you shouldn’t be afraid to add plenty of onion to your meals.

Which onions do you buy: Shallots, Scallions, Red Onions, White, Yellow, etc.? And, how do you use them? Yellow Onions are considered all-purpose onions for cooking. They’re good for cooking with meats, stews, soups, sauces, and casseroles. White Onions are a little crunchier and less sweet. Use them in fresh salsas, salads, and stir-fries for a little punch of flavor. Use Vidalia Onions when you want a sweeter flavor: onion rings, roasted, sauces, and vegetable dishes, perhaps? Red Onions add not only flavor, but a little color, too. They are great for eating raw in salads and sandwiches. Scallions, or green onions, are good in salads, in Asian dishes, and garnishing meals. Shallots have a more subtle flavor and are good for adding just a little flavor to dressings and sauces. Of course, that’s just a guide. Use whichever onions taste best to you.

Here are some great Gluten-Free recipes I found with Onion:

Avocado Salsa @ Celiac Family

Baked Parmesan Onion Rings @ Cooking with Mamma C

Beef Liver with Bacon and Caramelized Onions @ The Gluten Free Homestead

Caramelized Onion Gravy @ Salad in a Jar

French Fried Onions @ Flo & Grace

Fried Onion Rings @ The Spruce

Low Carb Gluten-Free Onion Bagel @ Low Carb Yum

Gluten-Free Celery — Menu Plan October 9

By · Comments (1) · Print This Post Print This Post

For this week’s Gluten-Free Menu Swap, we are sharing ideas for using Celery in your meals. 

Celery is another fall vegetable that has many wonderful health benefits. High in anti-oxidants, celery supports your digestive system, lowers  inflammation, helps fight infections, and does even more to support your health.

Chop up the stalks for a nice crunch in your salads and stir-fries. Use seeds and leaves in soups and salads for flavor. Or, try a new recipe for a little variety in your menu plan.

I found some great gluten-free recipes with celery:

Apple Celery Stuffing @ Valley Natural Foods

Broccoli Slaw Salad with Cranberries and Celery @ Eat Drink Paleo

Buffalo Chicken Celery Sticks @ Evolving Table

Buffalo Curry with Celery @ Inside Kellys Kitchen

Catfish with Apple Celery Slaw @ Better Homes & Gardens

Celery Crunch Salad @ Modern Low Carb

Celery Stuffed with Carrot and Raisin Salad @ Gluten Free and More

Cream of Celery Soup (dairy-free, vegan) @ Making It Milk-Free

Easy, Hearty Gumbo @ Celiac Family

GF Potstickers filled with Sweet and Sour Tempeh & Celery @ Vegan Richa

Potato Salad for a Crowd @ Celiac Family

Quick and Easy Red Beans and Rice @ Celiac Family

Sautéed Celery with Leeks and Mushrooms @ Gluten Free Club

Simple Mushroom and Celery Stir Fry @ Oh Snap! Let’s Eat!

Gluten-Free Meals with Fresh Mint — Menu Plan September 18

By · Comments (0) · Print This Post Print This Post

We’re cooking with Fresh Herbs at the Gluten-Free Menu Swap this month. This week, we’re sharing recipe links and ideas for using Fresh Mint. 

Mint is the easiest herb for me to grow. In fact, once it gets in the garden, it’s hard to control. I’ve grown it in pots both outside and inside with good results.

There are some great benefits to eating mint. Anyone with a sensitive tummy should know that mint is great for digestion and is known to relieve gas and bloating. I always have mint tea at our house. Some people also believe that mint can increase mental alertness. So you might want to keep some mint gum or candy at hand in the car, desk at work, or maybe in your school backpack. 🙂

Check out the tempting Gluten-Free Recipes with Fresh Mint we found this week:

Dairy-Free Tzatziki with Fresh Mint @ Go Dairy-Free

Fresh Mint Iced Tea @ Gluten Free with Emily

Fresh Mint Lemonade @ Rose Water & Orange Blossoms

Homemade Mint Extract @ Healthy Green Kitchen

Entrees and Salads:

Corn and Peach Salad with Fresh Mint @ Simply Gluten-Free

Corn, Tomato and Mint Salad @ Delish Knowledge

Honey Mint Glazed Chicken @ Simply Recipes

Israeli Salad with Avocado and Mint @ Tori Avey

Lamb Chops with Cilantro Mint Sauce @ Leite’s Culinaria

Roasted Mint Lime Cauliflower Salad @ Organically Blissful

Shrimp Avocado Mint Salad @ Spoonful of Health

Summer Fruit Salad with Ginger Lime and Mint @ Devour

Desserts (paired with chocolate):

Chocolate Mint Cookies @ Letty’s Kitchen

Chocolate Mint Truffles @ Luxe Epicure

Fresh Mint and Chocolate No-Bake Brownies @ Mama Bake

Fresh Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream (Dairy-Free) @ Downshiftology

Healthy Fresh Mint Chocolate Cookies @ Make the Best of Everything
